Usage Notes: Week 10

By Mike Krueger | Updated: 11/14/23

Each week, I’ll look at snaps, usage, touches, target shares and pull out the highlights you need to know from each game.

- All games will be available Monday afternoon each week.
- Snap shares are in parenthesis next to each player’s name.



Sunday Early:

IND @ NE | GB @ PIT | NO @ MIN | HOU @ CIN


Sunday Late:





D'Onta Foreman


Offensive Snaps
Panthers: 60
Bears: 72

Chuba Hubbard (50.0%) is still operating as the Panthers lead RB ahead of Miles Sanders (38.3%). Hubbard out-touched Sanders 11 to 4. The offense isn’t great which makes Hubbard just a low-end Flex option on a weekly basis.

Adam Thielen (29.4% target share) played every snap and is really the only pass catcher to be considered for Carolina. Jonathan Mingo (98.3%) is also an every-down player when D.J. Chark is out like he was this week.

Khalil Herbert remains on IR but will likely be back in Week 11. That left D’Onta Foreman (52.8%) in the lead back role while Roschon Johnson (41.7%) filled the backup role. Johnson got a little extra playing time towards the end of the first half when Foreman was being checked for a foot issue. Foreman scored the only offensive TD of the game.

The lack of offense in this game carried through the Bears wideouts. D.J. Moore (93.1%) led the group with a 28.1% target share followed by Darnell Mooney (66.7%) with a 12.5% target share.

TE Cole Kmet (91.7%) had another solid game (5-45-0, 7 targets) and remains a low-end TE1 option.


Offensive Snaps
Colts: 57
Patriots: 69

The transition is complete. Jonathan Taylor played 87.7% of the snaps compared to 15.8% for Zack Moss. This is Taylor’s backfield moving forward. He out-touched Moss 24 to 1. Moss is a worth bench stash as a contingency play.

Josh Downs (24.6%) was limited by a knee issue. Isaiah McKenzie filled in the gap, playing 45.6% of snaps and saw 4 targets (4-31-0). Alec Pierce is on the cardio club, playing 96.5% of snaps, but isn’t a target earner in this offense.

As usual, just two running backs saw playing time for New England: Rhamondre Stevenson (66.7%) and Ezekiel Elliott (33.3%). The Patriots plodding, grind-it-out style will keep Stevenson in the RB2 conversation.

JuJu Smith-Schuster (98.6%) led all New England receivers in snap share but saw just 1 target. Demario Douglas (72.5%) and Kayshon Boutte (37.7%) were the only other receivers to see significant snaps. DeVante Parker was inactive.


Offensive Snaps
Packers: 68
Steelers: 65

A week after being “unleashed” Aaron Jones played 55.9% of the snaps while AJ Dillon remained active playing 50.0% of the snaps. Jones had 19 opportunities compared to 12 for Dillon. This is the workload share we should expect moving forward.

7 targets for Christian Watson (75.0%) but just a 2-23-0 line. Disappointing. Romeo Doubs (82.4%), Jayden Reed (51.5%) and Dontayvion Wicks (44.1%) make up the four-man rotation.

A perfectly even split for Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren as both played 50.8% of the snaps. This is now back-to-back weeks where Harris saw 20 opportunities. Warren had 19… the most he’s had all season.

The Steelers passing game continues to struggle with Kenny Pickett under center. George Pickens (95.4%), Diontae Johnson (81.5%) and Allen Robinson (76.9%) continue to be the top three options. Only Johnson and Pickens are fantasy viable.


Offensive Snaps
Saints: 67
Vikings: 73

Derek Carr (49.3%) left this game with a shoulder injury which allowed Jameis Winston (49.3%) to see some action. The Saints have a bye in Week 11.

With Kendre Miller out, the Saints stuck with Alvin Kamara (76.1%) and Jamaal Williams (22.4%) in a two-back rotation. 16 touches for Kamara and just 5 for Williams.

TE Taysom Hill played 29.9% of the snaps and had just 3 touches which was down a bit from previous weeks.

Michael Thomas played 2 snaps then left with a knee injury. His absence allowed A.T. Perry to play 83.6% of the snaps. Chris Olave (80.6%) and Rashid Shaheed (68.7%) both saw a 25.0% target share.

Alexander Mattison (45.2%) left with a concussion which allowed Ty Chandler (43.8%) to get 15 carries (0 targets). Myles Gaskin has bee signed and will likely be active next week if Mattison can’t go.

Jordan Addison (97.3%), Brandon Powell (67.1%) and Jalen Nailor (91.8%) were the top three wideouts for Minnesota. Addison led the group with a 21.9% target share while Nailor had just 1 target. This group needs Justin Jefferson back in a big way.

It was reported that T.J. Hockenson (63.0%) would be used on a limited basis given his rib injury. His snap share was down, but dude saw a whopping 46.9% target share and was continually banged around on his 11 catches. Vikings bye is in Week 13.


Offensive Snaps
Texans: 75
Bengals: 64

Devin Singletary (81.3%) had a tough matchup last week against the Bucs run-D but exploded this week against the Bengals with 30 carries, 150 yards and 1 TD. Mike Boone played just 18.7% of the snaps and had 3 opportunities.

Nico Collins was inactive. Tank Dell (96.0%), Noah Brown (74.7%) and Robert Woods (60.0%) were the top three wideouts. Dell led the group with a 35.9% target share but failed to catch even half of his passes going 6-56-1 on 14 targets. Brown is viable whenever Nico or Dell is out.

TE Dalton Schultz played 88.0% of the snaps and had a 15.4% target share.

Joe Mixon (73.4%) had just 14 opportunities but did find the endzone for the third consecutive week.

Ja’Marr Chase played 84.4% of the snaps with his back issue. Trenton Irwin (81.2%) was the direct fill-in for Tee Higgins who was inactive. Tyler Boyd (92.2%) played his normal role but led the group with a 30.8% target share… because of Chase’s back injury?


Offensive Snaps
Browns: 78
Ravens: 54

The Browns stuck with their top two running backs this week: Jerome Ford (64.1%) and Kareem Hunt (35.9%) got all the playing time. 18 touches for Ford, 10 for Hunt.

With Donovan Peoples-Jones now in Detroit, Cedric Tillman (84.6%) has been elevated in Cleveland but he failed to produce a catch on 3 targets. Elijah Moore (83.3%) caught his first TD of the season and could be useful down the stretch.

TE David Njoku (87.2%) and Amari Cooper (92.3%) led all the Browns pass catchers with a 28.1% target share.

The Ravens continued with their three-man RBBC. Gus Edwards (51.9%) led the group with 12 opportunities while Justice Hill (25.9%) and Keaton Mitchell (24.1%) combined for just 7 touches (Mitchell had 5). Mitchell had displayed efficiency but will be difficult to trust given the low workload.

Rashod Bateman (74.1%) was the clear No.2 receiver for Baltimore this week, playing ahead of Odell Beckham Jr. (33.3%) and Nelson Agholor (42.6%). Zay Flowers (87.0%) led the group with a 26.1% target share.


Offensive Snaps
Titans: 63
Buccaneers: 65

We’ve seen this multiple times this season. When the Titans get behind, Tyjae Spears (60.3%) will spend more time on the field than Derrick Henry (42.9%). Opportunities were 12 to 10 in favor of Henry.

The Titans passing game struggled against the Bucs. DeAndre Hopkins (79.4%), Chris Moore (82.5%), Nick Westbrook-Ikhine (61.9%) and Kyle Philips (34.9%) couldn’t get anything going with Will Levis.

Rachaad White (70.8%) continues to have a good role in the Bucs offense. This is his second-straight game with over 20 touches. Chase Edmonds (27.7%) filled the backup role.

Mike Evans (72.3%) led the receiver group with a 34.5% target share.

TE Cade Otton played 95.4% of the snaps but had just 3 targets.


Offensive Snaps
49ers: 62
Jaguars: 57

With the game out of hand, the 49ers brought Christian McCaffrey (75.8%) back in the game late in the 4th quarter in an attempt to keep his TD streak alive. It didn’t work out, but it’s kind of thing fantasy dreams are made of.

Deebo Samuel returned from a two-game absence and played 56.5% of the snaps. An efficient and wide target tree led to muted numbers for Brandon Aiyuk (67.7%) who finished with a 3-55-1 line on 3 targets.

The Jaguars failed to score a TD. With the game out of hand, Travis Etienne (61.4%) ceded some work to Tank Bigsby (17.5%) and D’Ernest Johnson (21.1%).

Christian Kirk (89.5%) led the receiver group with a 35.5% target share while Calvin Ridley saw just a 9.7% target share. Tim Jones played 57.9% of the snaps with Zay Jones out.

Evan Engram’s low aDOT (4.01 yds for the season) combined with poor efficiency (7 targets, 4 catches) equals fantasy death (12 yards).


Offensive Snaps
Lions: 66
Chargers: 72

The Lions got in a shootout with the Chargers. In this scenario, Jahmyr Gibbs (57.6%) got more work than David Montgomery (37.9%). Gibbs (14-77-2, 3-35-0) had 19 opportunities to 12 for Montgomery (12-116-1, 0-0-0).

Jameson Williams played 51.5% of the snaps behind Amon-Ra St. Brown (92.4%) and Josh Reynolds (69.7%) but had just two targets. ARSB had a 28.1% target share.

TE Sam LaPorta (80.3%) had a quiet game but still managed 4-40-0 on five targets.

Austin Ekeler (69.4%) and Joshua Kelley (30.6%) handled the running back for the Chargers. 26 opportunities for Ekeler.

Rookie WR Quentin Johnston played 84.7% of the snaps and finished with a 4-34-1 line on four targets. Jalen Guyton (79.2%) operated as the third receiver behind Keenan Allen (75.0%) who saw a 35.0% target share despite leaving the game for a bit with a shoulder issue.


Offensive Snaps
Falcons: 71
Cardinals: 65

Look at Arthur Smith giving Bijan Robinson (74.6%) 23 touches against the Cardinals! The running back workload also included Tyler Allgeier (26.8%) and Cordarrelle Patterson (31.0%) who combined for 15 touches.

Drake London was back and played 77.5% of the snaps with a 22.2% target share but the Falcons only threw the ball 21 times.

Kyle Pitts played 70.4% of the snaps while Jonnu Smith played just 43.7% of the snaps.

James Conner stepped right back into a lead-RB role playing 63.1% of the snaps. He finished with a 16-73-0 line with zero targets. Keaontay Ingram (21.5%) worked as the No.2 back with Tony Jones playing 7 snaps.

Kyler Murray completed just 59.4% of his passes in his first game back (19-32, 249-0-1). He had 6 carries, 33 yards and rush TD and seemed to be moving fine.

The Cardinals used Marquise Brown (100.0%), Michael Wilson (89.2%) and Rondale Moore (64.6%) as their top three receivers. Moore had a 25.8% target share while Brown had just four targets and finished with 1 catch, 28 yards.

TE Trey McBride (76.9%) had a 29.0% target share and delivered a 8-131-0 line. He’s in the weekly TE1 conversation.


Offensive Snaps
Commanders: 61
Seahawks: 81

Brian Robinson Jr. (50.8%) had his first 100-yard game or the season and it came through the air. He only had 8-38-0 on the ground but finished with 6-119-1 receiving.

Antonio Gibson (47.5%) had a respectable 5-42-1 receiving as well.

Curtis Samuel returned to the lineup and played 50.8% of the snaps. With so much production coming from the RBs, the WRs had a quiet day including Jahan Dotson who played 95.1% of the snaps but had just 2 targets.

Zach Charbonnet (51.9%) out-snapped Kenneth Walker (48.1%) this week but Walker had twice as many touches (20-10).

DK Metcalf (88.9%) and Tyler Lockett (79.0%) both had target shares above 23% while Jaxon Smith-Njigba (61.7%) had just a 11.9% target share. JSN is going to need an injury to Metcalf or Lockett to become a trusted fantasy asset.


Offensive Snaps
Giants: 57
Cowboys: 78

Saquon Barkley (61.4%) got in 14 touches during the beatdown handed out by the Cowboys.

With Tommy DeVito at quarterback, there’s no reason to consider Giant pass catchers.

Everyone but Tony Pollard (69.2%) scored a TD. Rico Dowdle (28.2%), CeeDee Lamb (76.9%), Brandin Cooks (52.6%), Michael Gallup (47.4%), and TE Jake Ferguson (66.7%). Lamb had a 31.8% target share and now has 44 targets in his last three games.


Offensive Snaps
Jets: 66
Raiders: 64

The Jets offense remains anemic. Breece Hall (69.7%) does what he can but is limited to RB2 status.

Garrett Wilson (93.9%) had a 37.8% target share and is the only bright spot in the passing game. His volume makes him an easy WR2 in most formats. He had double-digit targets in five out of his last six games.

This offense runs through Josh Jacobs (82.8%) who had 29 touches in this game. This should be the norm moving forward.

Davante Adams had a 52.0% target share but was hampered by a below-average QB and an above-average defense.


Offensive Snaps
Broncos: 75
Bills: 54

The Broncos conservative offensive game plan calls for a lot of Javonte Williams (52.0%) who has now seen 25 and 30 touches in back-to-back weeks. Samaje Perine (33.3%) works in obvious passing situations Jaleel McLaughlin (14.7%) gets sprinkled in.

The only fantasy relevant receiver in Denver is Courtland Sutton (86.7%) who had a 37.9% target share Monday night. Jerry Jeudy is left out in the cold due to a low-volume passing attack.

Russell Wilson hasn’t thrown the ball less than 30 times in five out of his last six games.

Marvin Mims saw a healthy 69.3% of the snaps but can’t be trusted until the Broncos start throwing more.

The Bills and the Ravens ran the fewest plays (54) this week.

James Cook (46.3%) fumbled on the first offensive play and then was benched for most of the first half which allowed Latavius Murray (51.9%) to rack up 11 touches for 69 yards and a TD. Cook turned it on in the second half and managed 120 yards on just 14 touches.

Stefon Diggs (98.1%) was held in check (3-34-0) by Patrick Surtain and low play volume. Gabriel Davis (98.1%) had the highest target share (24.0%) of the receivers while Khalil Shakir (75.9%) worked as the No.3 option.

Tight end Dalton Kincaid (75.9%) also had a 24.0% target share. He’s an easy TE1.
