Dolphins matched up with their nickel package, with Jones as the third corner aligned over the slot, based on down and distance, not on the Chargers personnel; They often treated Gates as WR in those situations

    Here are all the story lines I’m following for fantasy in Week Seven.  N.Y. Jets (1-5) at New England (4-2)  Who will carry the load at RB for the Patriots?
