In a potentially big blow for the Jaguars and fantasy football owners, wide receiver Allen Robinson went to the locker room with a knee injury early in Jacksonville’s Week 1 game against the Texans.
Kearse has barely unpacked his bags after a recent trade to the Jets from Seattle, but he did lead the team with nine targets and seven catches in Week 1, playing 95 percent of the snaps. Although Jeremy Kerley’s eventual re-debut for the Jets will eat into Kearse’s target share, he’s a deeper league pickup who could find his way into flex consideration in PPR leagues.
The Bills are going to run, run and run the ball some more this season. Tolbert toted the ball 12 times in Week 1 and scored a touchdown. It’s going to be hard to trust him as a play in a given week given that he’s touchdown-vulture dependent, but if something were to happen to LeSean McCoy, he’s a focal point for a ground-and-pound attack. If you have McCoy, you should grab Tolbert.
This Seattle backfield will likely befuddle us for a few more weeks, particularly with Thomas Rawls on the radar to return in Week 2. But after leading all Seahawks backs in snaps and playing effectively when given the chance to handle the football, Carson emerged as a bright spot for an otherwise quiet offense in Week 1. He’s a player who can be added for now as a bench player, but it would not be a surprise if his role blossoms in future weeks. Eddie Lacy played just seven snaps in Week 1.
