The Market Report is your one-stop Monday shop for all the movement from a big weekend of NFL football.
These are the players who stood out for fantasy-relevant reasons — the good reasons, the bad reasons, and the in-between.
This column will be posted every Monday afternoon.
Players about whom we’re feeling more optimistic based on recent play or news.
Tom Brady (TB) — Brady and the high-flying Buccaneers scored 46 points in their victory over the Panthers but it felt like the Bucs could’ve scored 406 points if Brady had connected on a few more passes to wide-open Buccaneers receivers. Brady and company still made a statement after their dismal showing against the Saints in Week 9 as he completed 28/39 passes for 341 yards (8.7 YPA) and three touchdowns while adding a fourth touchdown on a QB sneak. Brady now has multiple TDs in four of his last five games, and the Buccaneers offense showed an offensive ceiling that we hadn’t yet seen this year with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown, and Rob Gronkowski each scoring 13+ FP against the Panthers. Brady has shown us he’s capable of some duds with four performances of 15 or fewer FP, but he’s tough to take out of fantasy lineups now with his loaded cast after topping 30+ FP for the third time in 2020. (Tom Brolley)
Josh Jacobs (LV) — The Raiders, even without a fully healthy offensive line, are just mauling teams at the point of attack right now, and their run game is a big reason they’re sitting at 6-3. Jacobs carried the rock 21 times for 112 yards and 2 TD against the Broncos in Week 10, and he now has his only two 100-yard performances of the campaign in his last three games. He also tied his season high with 4 receptions (for 24 yards), and the Raiders ran the ball so well that even Devontae Booker was able to get into the end zone twice in a revenge game scenario. QB Derek Carr has now thrown 25 or fewer passes in three straight games, in each of which the Raiders ran the ball more than they threw it. You think their identity is obvious right now? Jacobs is an RB1, though the presence of Booker is at least mildly concerning. (Joe Dolan)
Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt (Cle) — In their second-straight windy, wet, and low-scoring affair at home, the Browns ran the ball 38 times en route to a win over the Texans. Nick Chubb (19/126/1) looked fantastic and showed no signs of any lingering problems coming off of his knee injury in his first game action since Week 4. And, Chubb’s day could have been even bigger. 59 of his yards came on a game-sealing run with one minute left to go in the fourth quarter where he could have easily waltzed into the endzone but instead stepped out at the two-yard line to salt away the win. Houston didn’t have any timeouts left and Baker Mayfield took a couple of knees to finish out the game. Meanwhile, Kareem Hunt also turned in a great game in Chubb’s return — turning his 23 touches into 132 scrimmage yards. In their five games together this season, Kareem Hunt is averaging 17.2 fantasy points per game while Chubb is at 16.0. Both of those figures shake out as low-end RB1 numbers. This duo can undoubtedly co-exist together and they have an incredible schedule both in the short (Eagles and Jaguars next in Week 11-12) and long-term (Giants and Jets in Week 15-16). (Graham Barfield)
Miles Sanders (Phi) — Well, at least one thing went well for the Eagles — in his return from a knee injury against the Giants in Week 10, Sanders looked explosive, rushing 15 times for 85 yards and adding 2 for 10 receiving on 5 targets (he had a couple of bad drops). He played 72% of the snaps, so he wasn’t limited at all. The downside is that both of his backups — Boston Scott and Corey Clement — scored rushing TDs, with Clement’s coming on his only snap of the game. But for sustainability, Sanders playing a huge snap share and coming out of the game healthy should keep him on the RB1 radar. (JD)
D’Andre Swift (Det) — About 45 minutes before kickoff yesterday, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero dropped a report that Swift was expected to start for the Lions in the backfield. While it’s always overrated when a RB is a “starter,” we took this to mean that the Lions coaching staff finally admitted to itself that the early-down obsession with Adrian Peterson was hurting the football team. Well, lookie what happened. Swift played a career-high 73% snap share — only the second time in his career he’s been above 50% — and had a true breakout game with 16/81 rushing and 5/68/1 receiving. Meanwhile, Peterson had only 5 touches. Sometimes, these things are simple: put the ball in the hands of your best players. It’s even more obvious for the Lions to do this with Kenny Golladay (hip) injured. They need explosive plays from somewhere, and Swift is contributing them basically every time he touches the ball. (JD)
James Robinson (Jax) — Robinson has been the biggest fantasy revelation this season as he mostly went undrafted this summer thanks to the lack of a preseason. It’s hard to imagine his role getting any bigger but it very well could happen with Chris Thompson likely headed to the injured reserve after suffering a back injury in Week 10. Thompson played just one snap before suffering his injury, which left Robinson to handle 28 of the 30 RB opportunities against the Packers — Dare Ogunbowale saw two targets. Robinson posted 23/109 rushing and 2/3 receiving on five targets, but he could’ve had a much bigger day if he didn’t have two longer touchdown runs wiped out by holding calls. Robinson now has 22+ carries in three straight games and 20 opportunities per game might be his floor going forward with Thompson out of the lineup. (TB)
Kenyan Drake (Ari) — Drake returned to the lineup after a game layoff for his ankle injury, and he jumped right back into his old role as the lead runner for the Cardinals. He did lose a fumble in the second half to kill a promising drive, but he ran well overall with 16/100 rushing against the Bills in Week 10 while playing 52% of the snaps. Chase Edmonds slid back into his passing-back/change-of-pace role with 8/56 rushing and 3/21 receiving on a 49% snap share. Drake has now averaged more than 6.0 YPC in two out of his last three games after failing to average more than 4.5 YPC in any of his first five games. Drake still continues to be a non-factor as a receiver as he hasn’t reached 10+ receiving yards or 3+ targets in a game this season. Drake and Edmonds are both on the radar as low-end RB2s going forward, including this week against the Seahawks. (TB)
JD McKissic (Was) — It’s great to see Alex Smith back out there and playing pretty well for the Team overall. But even with all the time off, Smith’s old habits are dying hard. Smith never met a checkdown he didn’t like, and McKissic has been the roaring beneficiary of that, as he’s seen 29 targets over the last two games, including 15 against the Lions in Week 10. He posted 7/43 receiving on those targets, and added a short TD run to come through for fantasy purposes. He played 70% of Washington’s offensive snaps to just 38% for Antonio Gibson. While McKissic’s receiving ability is part of the reason he plays so many snaps, it’d be foolish to say he’s a more gifted receiver than Gibson, who was a WR in college. What McKissic does do, however, is protect the QB better than Gibson — the rookie Gibson blew the protection that got Kyle Allen hurt last week. And with Smith back there, the Team is going to place a premium on pass protection. McKissic is like a new version of James White right now. He’s not going to do much on the ground, but he has such massive target upside that he’s a worthwhile RB2 in PPR leagues. (JD)
Duke Johnson (Hou) — Even though Johnson flopped for just 5.4 fantasy points in his first start in place of David Johnson (concussion; IR), the usage was certainly there. Duke Johnson was Houston’s bell-cow and handled every single one of the Texans handoffs (14) and played on 54-of-57 snaps. Deshaun Watson notoriously doesn’t checkdown to his RBs often, but Duke only getting one target was definitely a little flukey. With David out for the next two weeks, Duke has a path to low-end RB1 numbers in this every-down role. The Texans play the Patriots and Lions in Week 11-12. (GB)
Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, and JuJu Smith-Schuster (Pit) — The Bengals sold out to slow down the Steelers rushing attack with Ben Roethlisberger missing practice all week and with windy conditions in the forecast. It turned out to be a poor tactical decision for the Bengals as Pittsburgh’s big three WRs each cleared 21+ FP in Week 10. Diontae led the way with 6/116/1 receiving on 11 targets (23.9% share) for 23.6 FP while JuJu posted 9/77/1 receiving on 13 targets (28.3% share) for 22.7 FP and Claypool added 4/56/2 receiving on 10 targets (21.7% share) for 21.3 FP. Big Ben has attempted 42+ passses in three out of his last four games with their rushing attack stuck in mud after failing to reach 42+ attempts in his first five games. All three Steelers are in the WR2 conversation going forward with JuJu being the safest option while Claypool and Diontae are the more volatile options. (TB)
Brandon Aiyuk (SF) — With George Kittle (ankle) and Deebo Samuel (hamstring) both out of the lineup, HC Kyle Shanahan schemed Aiyuk all he could handle against the Saints. Aiyuk saw a ridiculous 14 targets en route to yet another strong performance (7/75/1) even with Nick Mullens under center. Aiyuk is deserving of being force fed targets because he’s playing so well but he has been a locked-in WR2 in fantasy without Samuel. Over his last four games with Samuel out, Aiyuk has finished as the weekly WR13, WR19, WR6, and WR12 and has seen 39 targets. The 49ers are out on bye this next week, but Aiyuk’s arrow continues to tick upwards. (GB)
None of note.
Players about whom we’re feeling less optimistic based on recent play or news.
Ryan Tannehill (Ten) — Tannehill’s magic is starting to run out since his left tackle Taylor Lewan left the lineup with a torn ACL in Week 6. Tannehill had 19+ FP in four of his first five games, even though A.J. Brown missed time during that stretch, but he hasn’t hit that mark in four straight games since Lewan left the lineup. Tannehill had his worst game yet in Week 10 as he completed 15/27 passes for 147 yards (5.4 YPA) and one TD for just 10.78 FP in a 17-point loss to the Colts. Tannehill is nothing more than a mid-QB2 with the Titans offense trending in the wrong direction, and it’s tough to be optimistic with their rough stretch of games continuing against the Ravens and the Colts in the next two weeks. (TB)
Carson Wentz (Phi) — Well, Wentz went an entire game without holding onto the football too long, without trying to extend plays, and without making aggressive, but bad decisions. The result? No turnovers, but absolutely no juice. Wentz went 21/37 for 208 yards with no TDs against the Giants. He’s playing in an offense that looks broken, and Doug Pederson is really struggling. The Eagles didn’t get Wentz on the move until the third quarter, and right now we have an offense that isn’t supporting its QB and a QB who isn’t playing well enough to hold up a bad offense. The Eagles are getting healthier, but the offensive line is still a problem, and in terms of creativity, this offense is near the basement in the NFL. There could be a huge article written on all the problems, but the fact is if Wentz isn’t going to play aggressively, his fantasy upside gets crippled. (JD)
Russell Wilson (Sea) — This is the slightest downgrade possible because there is absolutely no way you’re benching Wilson. But there are a few causes for concern in Seattle. First, Wilson has been unusually careless with the ball as of late. The Seahawks have dropped three of their last four games and it’s due in part to Wilson throwing 7 interceptions and losing 3 fumbles. Wilson has always been one to hold on to the ball for as long as possible, but it also doesn’t help that he’s also absorbed 9 sacks over their last two games as well. Maybe Wilson is just trying to do too much since they haven’t been able to run the ball with Chris Carson sidelined? We’ll see. Carson is due back this week. But just as importantly, their offense has struggled at times when D.K. Metcalf is a non-factor. Now, shutting down Metcalf is obviously much easier said than done. And there is only one Jalen Ramsey. But the Rams did a masterful job of making Wilson’s life hard by letting Ramsey shadow Metcalf on 30 of his 42 routes and blending in zone coverage elsewhere. After looking unstoppable in the first month and a half, the recipe for slowing Seattle down is there. (GB)
Drew Brees (NO) — The Saints are going to be without their future Hall-of-Fame signal-caller for a little while. Drew Brees suffered “multiple fractured ribs” on both sides of his chest and has a collapsed lung after taking a big hit on a sack against the 49ers. Ouch? Keep in mind, Brees has also been dealing with a shoulder injury over the past few weeks and will now have time to get that right as well. New Orleans is right in the thick of the playoff hunt in a crowded NFC and will obviously want Brees fully healthy for the stretch run. We’ll see Jameis Winston get the start this coming week against the Falcons but we shouldn’t count out HC Sean Payton doing some galaxy brain stuff with Taysom Hill now that Brees is sidelined. (GB)
Christian McCaffrey and Mike Davis (Car) — ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that McCaffrey is unlikely to play in Week 11 because of his shoulder injury and he could be looking at a multi-week absence. Davis, who suffered his own thumb injury last week, we’ll remain in the bell-cow role he’s held in seven of Carolina’s last eight games. The jig is up on Davis, though, as he’s slammed into a wall after scoring 22+ FP in his first three games as the team’s bell-cow back in Week 3-5. He’s averaging just 53.0 scrimmage yards per game with just one touchdown in his last four games without CMC. Davis will still continue to see plenty of volume while CMC is out of the lineup, but he’s only an RB2 now since he’s been ineffective recently. (TB)
Jonathan Taylor (Ind) — It’s just not happening for the rookie as he’s playing like the third-best back in an ugly three-man committee. Nyheim Hines got the hot-hand in Week 10 against the Titans as he posted 12/70/1 rushing and 5/45/1 receiving on 56% of the snaps. Taylor frustrated again with 7/12 rushing and 2/25 receiving on 24% of the snaps while Jordan Wilkins managed 8/28 rushing without a catch on 20% of the snaps. The Colts invested a second-round pick in Taylor and he gives this offense their best chance of reaching their full potential, but his mediocre play has opened the door for more snaps for Wilkins and Hines. HC Frank Reich is going to keep using the hot-hand approach going forward and Taylor hasn’t played well enough to be anything more than a frustrating RB3 until he starts showing signs of getting out of his current funk. (TB)
James Conner (Pit) — Conner has managed just 10.8 FP in his last two games after running of 14+ FP in six straight games in Week 2-8. He managed just 13/36 rushing and he caught his only two targets for 12 yards despite playing 88% of the snaps with the Steelers racking up six scoring drives against the Bengals. The Bengals sold out to stop the run without Geno Atkins in the lineup and with Ben Roethlisberger playing in windy conditions after not practicing all week, but the plan clearly backfired in a 36-10 loss. Conner has just 37/105 rushing over the last three weeks for a 2.8 YPC average, and he’s averaging a career-low 6.1 YPR as a receiver. Conner will be better going forward since he’s playing plenty in one of the league’s better offenses, but he can no longer be considered a slam-dunk, low-end RB1 option until he gets back on track. (TB)
Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay (Den) — Yikes. A backfield split on a bad team is bad news, and the Broncos are uniquely bad this year, with QB Drew Lock a walking turnover machine. In a blowout loss to the Raiders in Week 10, Gordon posted 11/46 rushing on 56% of the snaps. Lindsay managed 2 yards on 4 carries on 30% of the snaps (Royce Freeman played 14% of the snaps). Neither Gordon nor Lindsay caught a pass. This team hasn’t put together a complete day offensively in quite some time, and they’re committed to a backfield rotation leaving both backs as FLEX plays. And it’s beyond obvious the Broncos have decided Lindsay isn’t a good receiver — he has 2 receptions on 8 targets this year, so he’s backing up that assertion. (JD)
Ravens Backfield (Bal) — A three-man RB rotation in a bad offense. Blech. In a brutal loss to the Patriots in Week 10, Gus Edwards carried 7 times for 42 yards and added a rare 31-yard reception (just his 3rd catch of the year). He played 23% of the offensive snaps. Returning from an ankle injury, Mark Ingram played 26% of the offensive snaps, but posted just 5 yards rushing on 5 carries, with 2/24 receiving. Rookie JK Dobbins “led the way” with a 44% snap share, but managed just 5/13 rushing and 1/1 receiving on 2 targets. Meanwhile, the Ravens lost blocking TE Nick Boyle (knee) for the season, turning an already bad situation worse. Teams have adjusted to the Ravens’ run game schemes, and with the offensive line struggling and Lamar Jackson regressing as a passer, the production just isn’t there. When you add in the fact that the Ravens are rotating three guys, they’re all useless for fantasy. (JD)
Marquise Brown (Bal) — It’d be easy to blame the performance of Brown in Week 10 on the hurricane conditions in New England — he had just 2 catches for 14 yards on 6 targets. But it’s simply a continuation of one of the most disappointing seasons we can remember in some time. Raven QB Lamar Jackson seems completely incapable of throwing the ball outside the numbers, and it’s crippled one of the most unique weapons in the NFL. Brown has gone under 10.0 PPR FP in four straight games, and in six of nine games this year. What’s more, his 14 receiving yards in Week 10 weren’t his season-low, or even his second-lowest total of the year. This offense is broken, and Hollywood is a low-end WR3. The big plays have been nonexistent. (JD)
A.J. Green (Cin) — Green fooled some in Weeks 6-7 when he totaled 15/178 receiving, but he now has 16/138 receiving in his other seven games this season after posting a big goose egg on five targets against the Steelers in Week 10. Green’s game logs are enough to throw in the towel and it doesn’t help that Auden Tate clearly looks like the superior player at this stage of the game. Green should be nowhere near a fantasy lineup heading into Week 11 against the Football Team. (TB)
Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods (LAR) — The Rams have been one of the most frustrating teams for fantasy all year long. They have a three-man rotation at running back, a two-man tandem at tight end, and now apparently have a legitimate three-man target tree at receiver. Over the last three weeks, Josh Reynolds snaps and targets have been on the rise and he actually ended up leading this team in receiving (8/94) against Seattle while Kupp (5/50) and Woods (5/33) both flopped. In fact, Reynolds leads the Rams in routes run (123) just ahead of Woods (122) and Kupp (122) over their last three games. This is in stark contrast to the first six games of the year where Woods (188 routes) and Kupp (183) were clearly ahead of Reynolds (144) in usage. With Reynolds more involved, Robert Woods has seen just 19 targets over the Rams last three games while Reynolds has 29 passing looks and Kupp has seen 33. Keep in mind, 20 of Kupp’s targets in this span came in one game against Miami. We have to downgrade Kupp and Woods as boom/bust WR3’s while Reynolds remains in play as a WR4 and DFS punt with his uptick in usage. (GB)
Noah Fant (Den) — Fant’s playing through a bum ankle, and he’s playing with a bum QB. That’s a bad combination for fantasy production. He bottomed out with a season-low 18 receiving yards in Week 10, catching 3 passes on 7 targets against the Raiders — Drew Lock completed more passes to the opposition (4) than he did to Fant. While Fant has been consistently targeted this year, he’s gone over 10 FP in a PPR league just once in his last six games. And with his season-worst performance coming the week after Albert Okwuegbunam (ACL) went on IR, it’s obviously not going to be a situation where he’s going to be force-fed targets. The Bronco offense is a really tough watch right now. (JD)
Players whom we’re not ready to upgrade or downgrade, but their situations demand monitoring based on recent play, injuries, or news.
None of note.
Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard (Cin) — Mixon went from being day-to-day when he first suffered his foot injury to being week-to-week as we head into a second month since he initially injured his foot in Week 6. Mixon never even made an appearance at practice last week so there’s a legitimate chance he misses his fourth game in five weeks. Bernard managed a pair of 20+ FP performances in his first two games without Mixon, but he finally disappointed as his fill-in last week in a brutal matchup with the Steelers. Mixon needs to see the practice field this week if he has any chance of playing or else we’re going to get a fourth game with Gio operating as the top back for the Bengals. (TB)
Ronald Jones and Leonard Fournette (TB) — RoJo looked headed for the deep recesses of Bruce Arians’ doghouse in Week 10 after his second lost first-quarter fumble in his last three games. Arians gave his third-year back more chances, which paid off when he raced 98 yards for a game-changing touchdown in their victory over the Panthers. Jones had been trending in the wrong direction with just 64 scrimmage yards in Weeks 8-9, but Arians has mostly remained committed to Jones as his lead runner. Fournette continues to operate primarily as the team’s passing/hurry-up back, and he had a three-game streak with 10+ FP snapped against the Panthers. Jones will be in better shape in positive game scripts like we saw in Week 10 while Fournette is the better option when it looks like the Buccaneers will be in negative game scripts like we saw in Week 9 against the Saints. (TB)
Austin Ekeler (LAC) — Some good news! It sounds like Ekeler might be close to returning. Last week, Ekeler posted a video of him sprinting off to the side of Chargers practice and said that the “time draws near.” We sure hope so. Joshua Kelley has essentially been benched in favor of Kalen Ballage over the past two weeks, so whenever Ekeler returns, this backfield is going to be his. The Chargers have a nice little stretch of matchups during the fantasy playoffs (Falcons, Raiders, Broncos in Week 14-16) so now might be your final chance to buy low. (GB)
Chris Carson (Sea) — After missing three games with a foot injury, it sounds like the Seahawks are going to get Carson back this coming week. ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentioned that Carson has “an excellent chance” to make it back in time to play on Thursday Night Football when the Seahawks take on the Cardinals in a pivotal NFC West game. It sure would be a welcome sight because Seattle has now used three different RBs as their lead back in Carson’s absence (DeeJay Dallas in Week 8; Travis Homer in Week 9; and Alex Collins in Week 10). Carson is fantasy football’s RB7 in fantasy points per game this season (17.5), just behind Derrick Henry (18.0). (GB)
Raheem Mostert (SF) — There is a good chance that the 49ers will get Mostert back soon. The team is out on bye this coming week, giving Mostert another week to rest up his injured ankle that put him on I.R. for three games. Mostert will automatically resume his role as the lead back with JaMycal Hasty (broken collarbone), Jeff Wilson (calf), and Tevin Coleman (knee) all out indefinitely. Mostert has looked awesome and has been one of the fastest players in the league when healthy, turning in performances of 151, 107, 119, and 76 scrimmage yards in his four appearances this year. (GB)
John Brown (Buf) — Brown has been battling through leg injuries for most of the last two months before finally getting healthy and looking like himself with 14/171 receiving on 19 targets over the last two weeks. Unfortunately, he got twisted up on his last catch of the game in the middle of the fourth quarter against the Cardinals in Week 10. Brown will at least get two weeks to heal and to get ready for their next game against the Chargers in Week 12. The Bills offense has started to hit its stride once again with Brown stretching the field across from Stefon Diggs so Allen owners will want to follow Brown’s status next week. (TB)
Robby Anderson, D.J. Moore, and Curtis Samuel (Car) — Teddy Bridgewater has been able to support these three fantasy-relevant WRs through the first 10 weeks of the season, but their owners will be closely monitoring the status of Bridgewater this week after he suffered a minor MCL sprain. An MRI showed no structural damage to Bridgewater’s injured knee, but his status for their Week 11 showdown with the Lions is up in the air depending on the levels of swelling and pain that he’s dealing with. It wouldn’t be surprising if Bridgewater pushes hard to play this week given his long road back to being a starting quarterback, but the medical and coaching staffs will make the ultimate decision with the Panthers all but out of contention at 3-7 overall. Anderson would have the leg up on Moore and Samuel this week if P.J. Walker would get the start since they have a history as they starred together for a season at Temple in 2015. (TB)
Travis Fulgham (Phi) — Fulgham had his first bad game of the season in Week 10, posting just 1/8 receiving on 5 targets from Carson Wentz, with a couple of drops to his name. It was the first time this season Fulgham had fewer than 50 receiving yards, let alone fewer than 10. It was simply a bad game from an offense that lacks any sort of rhythm or creativity right now. Unfortunately, coach Doug Pederson told reporters on Monday that Alshon Jeffery will be playing more snaps going forward — hopefully, that doesn’t affect Fulgham’s playing time, but the Eagles have made multiple illogical decisions this year, so we’re not going to ignore the possibility. (JD)
Michael Thomas (NO) — This has been a season to forget so far for Thomas. Through three full games, Thomas has mustered just 10 catches for 95 yards and now will have to get by without starting Drew Brees (ribs, lung) for the foreseeable future. We’ll get to see what Jameis Winston has got in his first start with New Orleans next week. Going from Brees to Winston is a downgrade, but I’m not convinced it’s a big one. Brees’ arm just hasn’t been as strong this season and Winston will obviously aggressively target Thomas and stretch the field. The Saints play the Falcons next, a team Thomas has owned in his career. (GB)
DeVante Parker (MIA) — Even though his stat line didn’t reflect it (2/31 on 7 targets), Parker looked fantastic as Tua Tagovailoa’s No. 1 target against the Chargers. He had a ridiculous one-handed touchdown catch overturned in the first half that really could have gone either way — does one calf = two feet? — and caught a beautiful 23-yarder down the sideline on a 50/50 ball. The Dolphins didn’t have to throw much to beat the Chargers, but Parker ended up seeing a strong 28% share of Tua’s passing looks on a day where he only attempted 25 passes. With Preston Williams on I.R., Parker is going to be a high-upside WR2 for the next few weeks and has an amazing schedule to boot (vs. Broncos, Jets, Bengals in Week 11-13). (GB)
TJ Hockenson (Det) — Hockenson was questionable for Sunday’s game with a toe injury, and if his production has anything to say about it, he was affected. Hockenson tied his season-low with 4 targets and 2 receptions, and his 3.3 PPR fantasy points were a season-low. His 66% snap share was on the low end for him but still within his normal range, so his playing time didn’t seem to be hurt, but he simply took a backseat in the game to D’Andre Swift and Marvin Jones. He’s still a TE1, since there doesn’t appear to be any indication he came out of the game worse for the wear. (JD)
