Aaron Jones ($7,700)
TDs are huge on FanDuel, and Jones is elite in that department. He scored 20 times in 2019 and once again got in the box in Week 1 of 2020.
Jones quietly had 16 carries and 4 catches on 6 targets in the opener, as the Packers went nuclear for 40+ points on the Vikings defense. As 6-point favorites on the road against a dismal Lions defense, I expect Jones to get in the end zone once again. He’s underpriced at just $7,700.
Jones is the #1 RB in our dollars per point rankings but comes in at a projected ownership of under 4%. I will be looking to roster Jones in at least 20% of Week 2 GPP lineups.
Jonathan Taylor ($5,800)
With Marlon Mack going down for the season with an Achilles injury, Taylor is at least $1,000 too cheap on FD this week. The rookie carried the ball just 9 times in Week 1 for 22 yards, but the Colts fell behind and elected to use more of Nyheim Hines, who also vultured 2 TDs.
Taylor was also heavily used in the passing game, with Philip Rivers loving to check it down to his RBs. Taylor caught all 6 of his targets for 67 yards against the Jags. If we project Taylor for a few more carries and a similar target outlook, he will smash his $5,800 price tag against an overrated Vikings defense who lost a lot of key pieces in the offseason.
Taylor isn’t going overlooked this week with a FanShare ownership projection over 15%, but I will look to double the field and play him in at least 30% of my Week 2 GPP lineups.
