Sunday Early:



Sunday Late:





Gus Edwards


Offensive Snaps
Bengals: 61
Ravens: 66

The Bengals lost Joe Burrow (44.3%) to a wrist injury in this game which obviously damaged their offensive production. Jake Browning (55.7%) completed 57.1% of his passes in relief.

Joe Mixon (63.9%) was the lone bright spot for the offense turning in his second-best fantasy performance of the season (16-69-0, 5-31-1).

Trayveon Williams worked as the backup RB, playing 31.1% of the snaps.

Ja'Marr Chase (98.4%), Tyler Boyd (90.2%) and Trenton Irwin (95.1%) worked exclusively as the top three receivers.

Tanner Hudson (34.4%) saw the most targets (4) from the tight end position, ahead of Irv Smith (39.3%) who has just two targets in his last two games.

Keaton Mitchell (36.4%) played ahead of Justice Hill (25.8%) in this game, but the Ravens are still using all three running backs which caps their upside… unless you’re Gus Edwards (37.9%) who seemingly finds the endzone every week.

Zay Flowers (98.5%) had a long catch-and-run TD called back on a bad holding call. Odell Beckham Jr. (33.3%) missed some time in this game with a shoulder issue but still managed 116 yards on 4 catches.

Rashod Bateman (78.8%) and Nelson Agholor (40.9%) are also in the mix, making it difficult to get usable production from Flowers.

TE Mark Andrews (10.6%) left early with an ankle injury and will miss the remainder of the season which will affect this offense moving forward. More use of the WRs should be expected and Isaiah Likely (74.2%) will be a priority pickup of the waiver wire.


Offensive Snaps
Titans: 40
Jaguars: 71

The extremely low play volume for Tennessee led to just 17 pass attempts for Will Levis and 19 team rushing attempts.

Derrick Henry (62.5%) and Tyjae Spears (45.0%) were the only running backs to play.

WR Chris Moore played 75.0% of the snaps but saw just 1 target.

Jacksonville’s blowout led to Tank Bigsby (14.1%) getting some extra work along with D’Ernest Johnson (23.9%). The two backups combined for 17 touches.

Calvin Ridley (80.3%) came to life with a 7-103-2 day while Zay Jones returned to his No.3 role playing 63.4% of the snaps.


Offensive Snaps
Chargers: 65
Packers: 72

Just 13 opportunities for Austin Ekeler (70.8%) this week (10-64-0, 2-6-0). Joshua Kelley (29.2%) was the only other RB to play a snap.

Keenan Allen (93.8%) now has double-digit targets in three out of his last four games. Quentin Johnston (86.2%) had a bad drop on a long pass. He remains inconsistent and difficult to trust in lineups despite the playing time.

Alex Erickson (78.5%) took over the No.3 role with Josh Palmer and Jalen Guyton out, but saw just 1 target.

TE Gerald Everett was inactive, which allowed Donald Parham to play 72.3% of the snaps. He saw 6 targets (4-57-0).

Aaron Jones (20.8%) left early with a knee injury and third-stringer Emanuel Wilson (8.3%) left with a shoulder injury. That leaves AJ Dillon (72.2%) to get most of the work next week.

Christian Watson (77.8%) played the most snaps of any Packers receiver and finally found the endzone. However, he’s not getting enough looks or consistent enough to be a fantasy WR3.

The Packers are spreading the ball out to four WRs making them all risky options. Romeo Doubs (68.1%), Jayden Reed (69.4%) and Dontayvion Wicks (33.3%) also see action.

Luke Musgrave (63.9%) and Tucker Kraft (41.7%) are splitting tight end duties but Musgrave remains the pass-catching option.


Offensive Snaps
Giants: 55
Commanders: 81

Saquon Barkley played 90.9% of the snaps for the Giants and caught 2 touchdown passes.

Darius Slayton (50.9%) left with an arm injury. In addition to Slayton, the Giants used four other receivers: Wan'Dale Robinson (67.3%), Jalin Hyatt (52.7%), Sterling Shepard (47.3%), Isaiah Hodgins (43.6%). Slayton had the highest target share of 19.2%.

TE Daniel Bellinger played 92.7% of the snaps but had just 3 targets.

With Antonio Gibson out, Brian Robinson Jr. played 77.8% of the snaps and had 26 opportunities, including 9 targets as the Commanders were playing from behind in this game. Chris Rodriguez Jr. (19.8%) filled the backup role and finished with a 6-43-0, 1-5-0 line.

The Commanders continue to use a large WR pool which caps the value of Terry McLaurin (80.2%), Jahan Dotson (79.0%) and Curtis Samuel (16.0% - ejected). Jamison Crowder (29.6%), Dyami Brown (25.9%) and Byron Pringle (25.9%) were also in the mix. McLaurin led the group with a 16.7% target share.


Offensive Snaps
Raiders: 61
Dolphins: 70

Only Josh Jacobs (77.0%) and Ameer Abdullah (23.0%) played at running back for the Raiders.

Hunter Renfrow (44.3%) and Tre Tucker (39.3%) are splitting work as the No.3 receiver behind Davante Adams (98.4%) and Jakobi Meyers (82.0%).

TE Michael Mayer played 80.3% of the snaps. He can be considered as a streaming option.

Devon Achane (4.3%) returned the to the field this week and promptly injured his knee again. The injury doesn’t seem serious.

Raheem Mostert (78.6%) had 22 carries while Salvon Ahmed (28.6%) worked as the No.3 running back ahead of Jeff Wilson who was inactive.

Tyreek Hill posted a 10-146-1 line while playing just 58.6% of the snaps due to a wrist issue but did come back in the game.

Cedrick Wilson (64.3%) was working as the No.3 receiver behind Jaylen Waddle (82.9%).

Durham Smythe was inactive which allowed Julian Hill (67.1%) and Tyler Kroft (30.0%) to share tight end duties. The Dolphins don’t use their tight ends in the passing game so we can ignore them.


Offensive Snaps
Cardinals: 61
Texans: 67

With Emari Demercado out, Tony Jones (26.2%) worked as the backup RB behind James Conner (68.9%).

Michael Wilson (shoulder) was inactive. Rondale Moore (72.1%) saw 1 target that went for a 48-yard TD. Greg Dortch played 75.4% of the snaps behind Marquise Brown (95.1%). Brown has 3 catches in the last two weeks. Dortch led the group with a 27.6% target share.

TE Trey McBride played every snap and continues to be an easy TE1. He had a 24.1% target share.

Devin Singletary (85.1%) dominated the backfield for the Texans with Dameon Pierce out. He handled 88% of the rushing attempts.

The Texans were back to their normal three-wide receiver group of Nico Collins (76.1%), Tank Dell (76.1%) and Robert Woods (74.6%). Dell posted his third 100-yard receiving game of the season. Collins led the group with a 28.9% target share.


Offensive Snaps
Bears: 75
Lions: 62

D’Onta Foreman (24.0%) left this game with an ankle injury. Khalil Herbert (42.7%) and Roschon Johnson (33.3%) would split time if Foreman were to miss next week with Herbert being the lead running back.

Equanimeous St. Brown (42.7%) and Tyler Scott (36.0%) were working as the third receiver behind Darnell Mooney (60.0%) and D.J. Moore (97.3%). Moore is the only reliable fantasy option.

TE Cole Kmet played 78.7% of the snaps and had an 18.2% target share.

You kind of figured David Montgomery (40.3%) was going to score a TD in this game. Jahmyr Gibbs (56.5%) did most of his yardage damage through the air (6-59-0).

Donovan Peoples-Jones was active but played just 3 snaps. Jameson Williams (64.5%) continued to work as the No.3 receiver.

TE Sam LaPorta played 85.5% of the snaps and had a 15.6% target share.


Offensive Snaps
Steelers: 58
Browns: 75

This game was predictably a low-scoring affair between a couple of good defenses and the Browns starting Dorian Thompson-Robinson at QB.

Jaylen Warren (44.8%) was the offensive star as he broke off a 74-yard TD run. Najee Harris (56.9%) was inefficient on his 13 touches.

Kenny Pickett isn’t good which makes George Pickens (91.4%) and Diontae Johnson (86.2%) risky fantasy assets.

TE Pat Freiermuth returned to play 53.4% of the snaps while Darnell Washington played 46.6%.

Jerome Ford (49.3%) and Kareem Hunt (44.0%) were basically at an even split in this game with 17 opportunities for Ford and 15 for Hunt.

The Browns are using a tight three receiver rotation of Amari Cooper (89.3%), Elijah Moore (70.7%) and Cedric Tillman (88.0%).

TE David Njoku (89.3%) saw a 22.4% target share, which led all of the Browns pass catchers.


Offensive Snaps
Cowboys: 72
Panthers: 59

Tony Pollard (62.5%) returned to the endzone for the first time since Week 1. Rico Dowdle played 29.2% of the snaps. Pollard had 17 opportunities.

The Cowboys were in control of this game which allowed them to play six WRs: CeeDee Lamb (79.2%), Brandin Cooks (72.2%), Jalen Tolbert (41.7%), Michael Gallup (34.7%), Jalen Brooks (22.2%) and KaVontae Turpin (16.7%).

Chuba Hubbard (49.2%) and Miles Sanders (45.8%) had a more even workload share this week. Both had 12 touches.

Adam Thielen (89.8%) had a whopping 42.3% target share. Jonathan Mingo played 94.9% of the snaps while D.J. Chark played 74.6% and didn’t have a target.


Offensive Snaps
Buccaneers: 71
49ers: 60

Rachaad White (80.3%) continues to have a strong role despite the rushing stats being inefficient. He makes up for it in the receiving game.

Trey Palmer (71.8%) continues to impress on the field but isn’t seeing enough volume behind Mike Evans (78.9%) and Chris Godwin (80.3%).

TE Cade Otton (95.8%) continues to be an every-down player for the Bucs.

Brock Purdy posted another highly efficient performance (21 of 25, 333-3-0, 4-14-0).

Elijah Mitchell (13.3%) continues to be the No.2 RB behind Christian McCaffrey (86.7%).

Brandon Aiyuk (88.3%) saw a 24% target share which was second to TE George Kittle (96.7%) who saw a 36% target share. Deebo Samuel (85.0%) played his normal role but was left out the endzone.


Offensive Snaps
Seahawks: 65
Rams: 67

Kenneth Walker (10.8%) left with an oblique injury and is likely to miss some time. That paves the way for Zach Charbonnet (84.6%) to see increased work. DeeJay Dallas should fill-in behind Charbonnet.

DK Metcalf (70.8%) led the receivers with a 23.7% target share. Tyler Lockett (55.4%) was dealing with a hamstring issue and saw his snaps decrease a bit. Jaxon Smith-Njigba (67.7%) had a 15.8% target share.

Royce Freeman (62.75) got more work than Darrell Henderson (35.8%) for the Rams but Freeman isn’t involved in the receiving game. He has 1 target on the season.

Cooper Kupp (26.9%) left this game with an ankle injury which allowed Austin Trammell (68.7%) to see increased opportunities. Trammell had a 20.7% target share.

Puka Nacua (88.1%) and Tutu Atwell (88.1%) were in their normal roles.


Offensive Snaps
Jets: 57
Bills: 76

The Jets were never in this game. Breece Hall (63.2%) has a difficult time carving out fantasy value given the poor state of this offense. Dalvin Cook (24.6%) had 2 touches while Israel Abanikanda (17.5%) played 10 meaningless snaps.

Garrett Wilson (94.7%) had 8 targets that resulted in 2 catches for 9 yards. WR Xavier Gipson played 78.9% of the snaps but isn’t going to have fantasy value until the Jets demonstrate they can move the ball.

Tyler Conklin (66.7%) shared tight end duties with Jeremy Ruckert and C.J. Uzomah (10.5%).

Buffalo got Ty Johnson (21.1%) involved this week which led to a three-headed RBBC. James Cook (46.1%) had 20 touches while Latavius Murray (31.6%) had 10.

WR Khalil Shakir (73.7%) broke loose for an 81-yard TD reception. Stefon Diggs (80.3%) still led the receivers with a 27.6% target share but was bottled up by the Jets secondary.

TE Dalton Kincaid (67.1%) had a 24.1% target share


Offensive Snaps
Vikings: 74
Broncos: 55

Alexander Mattison (64.9%) and Ty Chandler (31.1%) shared the bulk of the running back work for the Vikings. 20 opportunities for Mattison, 14 for Chandler.

Jordan Addison (94.6%), K.J. Osborn (95.9%) and Brandon Powell (59.5%) were the three wide receivers used by the Vikings. Addison led the group with a 20.7% target share.

TE T.J. Hockenson (70.3%) had a 24.1% target share. The Vikings also used Josh Oliver (45.9%) this week who went 4-47-0.

The Broncos continue to use three running backs with Javonte Williams (49.1%) being the lead dog. Samaje Perine (36.4%) plays mostly in passing situations while Jaleel McLaughlin (14.5%) has the most contingent value if Williams were to go down.

Marvin Mims played 56.4% of the snaps but is still having to deal with Lil'Jordan Humphrey who played 34.5% of the snaps. Courtland Sutton (80.0%) now has 8 TDs on the season while Jerry Jeudy (70.9%) has 1.


Offensive Snaps
Eagles: 56
Chiefs: 79

The Chiefs-D dominated the Eagles offense, especially in the first half which limited their play total. Jalen Hurts threw just 22 passes.

D’Andre Swift (64.3%) was the offensive star for the Eagles taking 15 touches for 107 yards and a TD. Kenneth Gainwell (30.4%) and Boston Scott (12.5%) combined for 4 touches.

A.J. Brown (94.6%) was shadowed up by DB L'Jarius Sneed. That resulted in Brown getting 1 catch for 8 yards on 4 targets. That resulted in DeVonta Smith (94.6%) seeing a 38.1% target share (6-99-0).

Julio Jones (57.1%) and Olamide Zaccheaus (39.3%) are filling the secondary receiver roles.

Without Dallas Goedert, the Eagles used Jack Stoll (55.4%), Grant Calcaterra (21.4%) and Albert Okwuegbunam (17.9%) at tight end. The trio combined for 2 targets.

Isiah Pacheco (60.8%) saw 20 touches while Jerick McKinnon (30.4%) and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (5.1%) combined for 5 touches.

The Chiefs receivers and Travis Kelce (93.7%) room committed numerous drops which significantly impacted the game. Kelce looks slow/injured.

Justin Watson (63.3%) had a 28.2% target share which tells you all you need to know about this group. Rashee Rice (57.0%), Skyy Moore (50.6%), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (46.8%), Kadarius Toney (27.8%) and Mecole Hardman (20.3%) all see action. Rice is the only fantasy consideration.
