Notes

Matt Ryan: After two video games, the Colts’ receiver room has been decimated by accidents. We’ll see if that adjustments this week, however Ryan has suffered because the QB28 in fantasy. Kansas Metropolis may be twenty second in cross protection DVOA, however that’s largely on account of their Eleventh rating in passing landing fee allowed. They’re sixteenth in success fee and EPA per dropback with the eighth-lowest yards per try allowed. Their cross rush has been unstoppable, rating second in hurry fee and third in strain fee. That is the place Ryan crumbles. By two video games amongst 33 quarterbacks (minimal ten pressured dropbacks), he’s thirty first in PFF’s pressured passing grade and twenty sixth in pressured yards per try. Ryan is a low-end QB2.

Lamar Jackson: Jackson is a mid-QB1 this week after his smash efficiency in opposition to Miami. New England has surrendered the ninth-lowest explosive cross fee, the Eleventh-lowest success fee per dropback, and the Twelfth-lowest EPA per dropback. Final time Jackson confronted this protection, he accomplished 70.5% of his passes with 7.3 yards per try whereas speeding for 55 yards because the QB7. Sure, I do know that far prior to now has no relevance on depth charts and matchups this season, however I feel his stat line this week in all probability seems to be eerily related. I’d be extra energetic if the Patriots have been the person coverage-heavy group of outdated, however they’ve been deploying extra zone this 12 months. In Week 1, their exterior corners performed zone on 62-68% of their snaps. Jackson’s splits final 12 months in opposition to man and zone have been large. His completion fee (twenty seventh) and accuracy score (twenty third) in opposition to zone have been exterior the highest 22 quarterbacks within the NFL (in opposition to man protection third and fifth in these metrics).

Mac Jones: With the slow-moving nature of this Patriots’ offense and heavy occasion on speeding, Jones is a low-end QB2 this week. Jones has solely completed as a high 12 fantasy quarterback in 31.6% of his NFL begins. Small pattern variance: Baltimore’s cross protection seems to be like a pushover on paper after Tua Tagovailoa and his proficient receivers dismantled them in Week 2. In Week 1, the Ravens’ cross protection allowed the ninth-lowest EPA per dropback and Eleventh-lowest success fee per dropback. Relying on the well being of their cornerback unit getting into the weekend, I could possibly be revising my stance right here. We’ll see.

Davis Mills: Davis Mills is a low-end QB2 at finest this week. He has adopted up a standout rookie season with a disappointing starting to 2022. He has solely mustered 5.6 yards per try on the QB27 in fantasy. The Bears may be a laughing inventory within the minds of many, however their protection hasn’t been. They’re seventeenth in cross protection DVOA with the Twelfth-lowest success fee per dropback. Chicago is also first in strain fee whereas solely blitzing on 1.6% of their defensive performs. Mills has been pressured on the Twelfth highest fee this 12 months.

Justin Fields: Justin Fields is one other low-end QB2, however he does current some upside. Has it been fairly via two video games? No. He’s completed because the QB23 and QB27 with a mixed 28 cross makes an attempt. This can be a good avenue to ramp up his passing quantity to see the place he’s at when you’re the Bears. Fields has been the second-most pressured passer within the NFL, however Houston is barely fifteenth in strain fee. The Texans are seventh-worth in explosive cross fee and passing yards per recreation. They’ve relinquished the Twelfth-highest EPA per dropback. In case you have Fields in Superflex or 2QB codecs, he might current extra upside this week than the Jameis Winstons and Ryan Tannehills of the world.

Notes

Brandin Cooks: Cooks may be one other 12 months older, however he’s not able to be put out to pasture but. Amongst 57 extensive receivers with ten or extra targets, he’s thirtieth in yards per route run however forty seventh in PFF receiving grade. These aren’t damning numbers whenever you marry it together with his insane quantity and function. He’s Eleventh in goal share (30.1%) and Twelfth in weighted alternative with a 36% air yard share. He’ll run about 74% of his routes on the perimeter in opposition to Jaylon Johson and Kindle Vildor. Don’t be stunned if the group does transfer him inside extra this week. Johnson and Vildor have mixed to permit a 55.5% catch fee and 77.0 passer score. Groups have picked on slot nook Kyler Gordon via two video games. He’s defended the third-most targets within the NFL (18) permitting essentially the most receiving yards within the NFL with a 155.8 passer score.

JuJu Smith-Schuster: JuJu Smith-Schuster has seen a 15.1% goal share working 50% of his routes from the slot. He’s but to see an endzone goal, and his effectivity numbers have been woeful, with a 1.46 yards per route run and 18% goal per route run fee. His aDOT (7.8) is the bottom amongst all of the extensive receivers on the roster. This can be a good matchup to get him going, although. Smith-Schuster important calling card today is the power to beat zone protection. Fortunate for him, the Colts have deployed zone on 69-76% of their cornerbacks’ routes. Restricted pattern, sure, however Smith-Schuster’s splits this 12 months in opposition to man and zone have been enormous. In opposition to man, he has a 0.91 yards per route run, however that flies as much as 2.79 in opposition to zone, which is fifth-best (minimal 5 zone targets). When inside, he’ll match up with Kenny Moore, who permits an 81.8% catch fee and 146.0 passer score this season. He’s a WR3 with upside this week.

Mecole Hardman: Hardman is a dart throw WR6. He’s splitting routes with Justin Watson with solely a 57.1% route run fee. His different peripherals are additionally yuck, with a 1.48 yards per route run. His target-per-route run fee is at 23%, which is sweet, however that’s solely amounted to 5 targets per recreation. When on the sphere, he’s alternated with Smith-Schuster within the slot (50%), so he’ll see little bit of Moore. I’d be a lot increased on him if he have been a 100% snap participant in Week 3.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Smith-Schuster and Valdes-Scantling have been the one full-time extensive receivers for the Chiefs (highest route run fee of 83.1%). The issue for Valdes-Scantling is he’s been the group’s trusted man protection beater, with 66.7% of his targets coming in opposition to this protection kind. With a boatload of zone protection in retailer for these receivers in Week 3, you need to sit Valdes-Scantling. He’s a WR5/6 kind.

Rashod Bateman: Bateman is on his option to a breakout season. He’s at present the WR18 in fantasy. After Week 2, he’s third in yards per route run (minimal ten targets) and twentieth in targets per route run. He’s dealt with a 20.2% goal share and 29% of the group’s air yards. He’ll see Jalen Mills and Jonathan Jones on practically 86% of his routes. Mills and Jones have mixed to permit a 60% catch fee and 128.3 passer score in protection. Bateman is a high 24 extensive receiver.

Robert Woods: Woods is only a mediocre WR5/6 at this juncture. He’s seen a 13.5% goal share with the very best route run fee among the many extensive receivers (75.4%). His 1.13 yards per route run and 0.30 weighted alternative show a large receiver that’s sadly cooked at this level. He’ll run about 65% of his routes in opposition to Nate Hobbs and Rock Ya-Sin. Hobbs has allowed a 69.2% catch fee and 77.7 passer score. Ya-Sin is taking part in nicely with a forty five.5% catch fee and a 66.5 passer score in protection.

Amon-Ra St. Brown: St. Brown has been a revelation about betting on expertise. He’s fourth amongst wideouts in goal share (34.3%), fifteenth in weighted alternative, and seventeenth in yards per route run. He has a 25.5% air yard share working about 75% of his routes from the slot. He’ll match up with Chandon Sullivan, who has given up a 90% catch fee and 107.9 passer score. St. Brown is a top-ten extensive receiver till additional discover (WR4 in fantasy factors at present).

D.J. Chark: After a giant Week 1 with 52 receiving yards and a rating (WR22), Chark disappeared final week. He was focused 4 instances whereas failing to report any receptions. He’s exterior the highest 50 extensive receivers in goal share (16.9%) and goal per route fee (17.9%). 41.6% of his goal quantity has been on deep targets. Minnesota is Thirteenth in DVOA in opposition to deep passing this season. Chark will see Patrick Peterson and Cameron Dantzler on about 85% of his routes. These two corners have mixed to permit a 70% catch fee and 85.6 passer score in protection. Chark is a WR5.

Notes

Joe Mixon: Mixon has been a quantity monster. Regardless of zero touchdowns on his resume, he’s the RB9 in fantasy. He’s averaged 28 touches and 114 whole yards with a 14.8% goal share (eighth-best). His effectivity has been good within the passing recreation (14th in yards per route run) however mediocre as a rusher. He’s forty second in yards created per contact, thirty sixth in breakaway run fee, and 57th in true yards per carry. Mixon ought to have one other stable day in opposition to a plus matchup on the bottom. The Jets are second-worst in explosive run fee whereas additionally rating 14th-worst in rush EPA and Twelfth-worst in speeding yards allowed per recreation. New York is twenty second and 18th in second-level and open area yards allowed. When Mixon is focused out of the backfield, he can create some large performs in opposition to a group that’s twenty ninth in DVOA in opposition to receiving backs. Mixon is a top-ten RB choice in Week 3.

Michael Carter: Carter stays the chief of this backfield as one of the underrated backs within the NFL. He’s averaged 14.5 touches and 75 whole yards. He’s a top-13 again in yards created per contact, breakaway run fee, and evaded tackles. Whereas his share of the speeding makes an attempt dipped that’s possible a one week outlier than sign at this level. His cross recreation function remained. The Bengals are an atrocious matchup for the second-year again. They’ve surrendered the fifth-lowest speeding success fee, tenth-lowest speeding EPA, and Thirteenth-fewest fantasy factors per recreation. The nice factor is they’re solely common in explosive run fee (fifteenth) and DVOA (fifteenth). Carter is a low-end RB3/high-end RB4.

Breece Corridor: Corridor has been rendered a middle-of-the-pack RB4. He’s averaged ten touches and 60.5 whole yards. The issue for Corridor is the two-way break up in passing down work has now turn out to be a three-way committee, with Corridor shedding routes to Ty Johnson. Whereas his early down function is unaffected, with a tricky matchup on the bottom and an offense that’s something however high-flying, Corridor is a low-upside flex.

Josh Jacobs: After getting demolished in Week 1 in opposition to Saquon Barkley, the Titan’s run protection bounced again in Week 2. They allowed the fifth-lowest speeding success fee and Eleventh-lowest rush EPA. These numbers are in keeping with final 12 months, the place they gave up the bottom explosive run fee and speeding yards per recreation within the NFL. After Josh Jacobs couldn’t make the most of a cakewalk Arizona run protection final week working behind an offensive line that’s no increased than seventeenth in any adjusted line yard metric, it doesn’t appear any extra promising in Week 3. Jacobs is fifth in alternative share and twentieth in route participation averaging 15.5 touches and 77 whole yards. He’s tenth in yards after contact per try and fourth in PFF’s elusive score (minimal ten carries). With 15-20 contact upside in a recreation that initiatives for impartial and constructive recreation script, Jacobs is an unspectacular RB2.

Derrick Henry: Has the massive canine misplaced his chew? That’s the concern. Operating behind an offensive line that’s sixteenth in adjusted line yards and twenty first in second-level yards, Henry has seemed like a mere mortal. He’s averaged 17 touches and 53.5 whole yards via two video games. Amongst 51 working backs with no less than ten carries, he ranks twenty seventh in yards after contact per try, twenty eighth in breakaway share, and thirty sixth in PFF’s elusive score. These aren’t the kind of numbers you hoped for whenever you chosen him within the first spherical of drafts. The matchup this week is hard. The Raiders are high six in adjusted line yards, second-level yards, and open area yards allowed. They’ve permitted the seventh-lowest rush EPA and sixth-lowest explosive run fee. Henry stays a low-end RB1 primarily based on projected quantity and goal-line work, however he could possibly be slipping into RB2 territory within the coming weeks.

Devin Singletary: Singletary is a mid-tier RB3. His snap share (55.3%) and alternative share (40.8%) are meh marks. The Payments merely aren’t a group that prioritizes getting their working backs work in any side. Singletary has solely seen two high-value touches per recreation and two whole purple zone alternatives. Neither of those is sufficient to push him any increased regardless of residing in one of many league’s finest offenses. He’s averaged 9 touches and 41.5 whole yards. Regardless of permitting the tenth-highest explosive run fee, the remaining components I have a look at concerning the Dolphins’ run protection don’t paint a fairly image for Singletary. Miami has allowed the fourth-lowest speeding EPA and sixth-lowest speeding success fee.

Zack Moss: After an eyebrow-raising 12 touches in Week 1, Moss fell again to earth with 19% of the snaps performed and three touches (17 whole yards) in Week 2. Don’t play Moss.

James Prepare dinner: Prepare dinner obtained work in rubbish time final week with a season-high 11 carries (42 speeding yards) and 26% of the snaps performed. For fantasy, we are able to’t depend upon blow-out clock sapping carries in any week. Stash Prepare dinner. Sit Prepare dinner.

He’s Twelfth in targets, tenth in goal share, and Eleventh in routes run. These components overshadow that he’s sixteenth in yards per route run and solely thirty second in yards per reception. Engram can proceed his high 12 methods this week in opposition to a pliable Chargers secondary. They’re 18th in DVOA in opposition to the place after ending twenty third final season. The Bolts are sixth in receptions and fifth in receiving yards allowed to tight ends. Engram is a high 15 choice at tight finish this week.

Gerald Everett: Everett was a draft season darling of mine who’s placing up stable numbers. He’s the TE4 in fantasy factors per recreation with an 18.4% goal share (seventh-best). He’s seventh in yards per route run and second in YAC. He has a tricky however not insurmountable matchup this week. The Jaguars are tenth in DVOA this 12 months in opposition to tight ends after holding the place to the ninth-fewest receiving touchdowns final 12 months.
