Williams has a very tough matchup on the road, he is a boom / bust WR3 against the Vikings tough defense. 
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
For the second straight week, Williams saw 7 targets, accumulated 5+ catches, and found the end zone. It's a recipe for success as Derek Carr's number one target following Antonio Brown's departure. Unfortunately, Tyrell is currently dealing with a hip pointer, and even if he plays, he'll face shadow coverage from Xavier Rhodes. There will be plenty of weeks where Williams is an appealing WR3/flex -- or even a WR2 -- but you may want to look elsewhere this week if you have other appealing options.Johnson continued to lose snaps and touches to Carlos Hyde in Week 2, and at this point Duke is on the short side of the committee. He is going to be more involved when the Texans throw the ball more, but that may not be the case this week against the Chargers' run-funnel defense. There's always upside in this offense, but Johnson is just a boom-or-bust RB3/flex option.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The Raiders offense came back down to earth in Week 2, though Williams was still able to salvage some value, hauling in five balls for 46 yards and a touchdown. He's amassed 47.4 of the Raiders' air yards this year, which is truly elite territory, as there were just two receivers who totaled more than 38 percent of their team's air yards last year. Because of that, he should remain in the WR2/3 conversation most weeks. This week, however, it's going to be a bit more difficult, as the Vikings secondary is no joke. While Xavier Rhodes has looked beatable at times, it's hard to see the Vikings using him to shadow Williams. It would make sense to simply play sides, as Trae Waynes has more than enough speed to go stride-for-stride with Williams. The Vikings allowed just 12.01 yards per reception last year, which was one of the lower marks in the league. A large part was due to the fact that they allowed just 43 plays of 20-plus yards last year, the sixth-fewest in the league. Playing in Minnesota is no easy task for anyone, especially wide receivers. Williams is a risky low-end WR3 in this matchup.After trading away a third-round pick for Johnson, most assumed he'd be the leader in this timeshare, but after two weeks, it's a lot different than most imagined. Johnson has played 66 snaps and totaled 19 touches (15 carries, four receptions) while Hyde has played 62 snaps and totaled 31 touches (30 carries, one reception). While most want that to change, it won't if Hyde continues to average a robust 5.8 yards per carry behind a makeshift offensive line. Johnson is going to have more value in games they fall behind, which oddsmakers expect this week. The Chargers struggled against running backs last year (allowed seventh-most points to them) but particularly in the passing game, as they allowed the second-most PPR points through the air to running backs. They allowed an average of 14.7 PPR points per game through the air alone. Think about that for a second. That amounts to five catches for 67 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game, on average. While the Colts didn't exploit that in Week 1 (they didn't really need to while rushing for 187 yards), the Lions running backs totaled four catches for 53 yards and a touchdown through the air last week. The timeshare all comes down to gamescript and this one should be a bit different than last week. Johnson is the safer play who's somewhat gamescript-proof, so consider him a decent RB3, especially in PPR formats.
