Week 17 Stat-Pack

We’ve made it. Championship week! Best of luck as we close out this crazy season.

Here’s your Week 17 Stat-Pack:

Arizona Cardinals

  • Kyler Murray’s target distribution over the last two weeks without DeAndre Hopkins – Ertz (28%), Kirk (24%), Wesley (14%), Green (13%), Edmonds (10%).

  • Ertz ran a route on 95% of the Cardinals pass plays last week, a season-high.

  • Chase Edmonds played on 92% of the Cardinals snaps last week, a season-high.

Atlanta Falcons

  • After a rough middle of the season, Kyle Pitts is starting to come on as of late. He’s finished as the TE9 > TE10 > TE3 over the last three weeks without scoring a TD.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson, however, is trending the wrong way. After finishing as the RB20 or better in 10-straight games from Weeks 2-14, C-Patt has finished as the RB55 and RB33 over the last two weeks.

  • Patterson is averaging 2.65 YPC over the last three weeks.

  • C-Patt’s passing game usage has dried up completely, too. He ran just 12 routes in Week 16.

Baltimore Ravens

  • Mark Andrews is on an all-time heater and has 29 receptions, 376 yards, and 4 TDs over the last three weeks.

  • Andrews is the third-highest scoring player in all of fantasy over the last three weeks. Only Josh Allen (95.3 FP) and Cooper Kupp (87.3 FP) have out-scored him (84.6 FP).

Buffalo Bills

  • Josh Allen is closing the fantasy season out on fire and has now finished as a top-6 QB in four of his last 5 games. Falcons next.

  • Devin Singletary stayed in control of this backfield last week as he led the way in snaps (68%) and touches (17) over Zack Moss (33% snaps | 4 touches). Matt Breida was a healthy scratch.

  • With Gabe Davis and Cole Beasley both out last week, the Bills simply made Isaiah McKenzie a full-time player. He ran a route on 87% of their pass plays and easily had his career best game (11/125/1).

Carolina Panthers

  • The good news? DJ Moore is 10th among all WRs in targets (42) over the last five weeks despite playing in just 4 games.

  • The bad news? Just 29 of those 42 targets have been catchable, per SIS. That means just 69% of Moore’s targets in this span have been catchable. Not so nice.

Chicago Bears

  • Since returning from injury in Week 9, David Montgomery has played on 81% of the Bears snaps. The only RB with a higher snap rate in this span? Najee Harris (84%).

  • Montgomery isn’t scoring many TDs because the Bears are atrocious, but he’s been highly involved in the passing game at least…

  • Over the last four weeks, Montgomery is averaging 7.8 targets per game and has at least five catches in each game. He’s averaging 43.5 YPG as a receiver.

Cincinnati Bengals

  • Joe Burrow’s 525 yard performance was the fourth-most all-time.

  • Burrow is now first in YPA (8.7) and second in passer rating (105) on the season.

  • Meanwhile, Tee Higgins’ 43.4 FP bomb is the 10th-most PPR points scored by a WR in Week 16 all-time.

Cleveland Browns

  • Nick Chubb is about to win some leagues. He’s averaged 21.3 touches and played on 65% of the snaps over the last three weeks. Steelers next.

Dallas Cowboys

  • Well, Dak sure busted his slump – didn’t he? Next up is a Cardinals secondary that has completely fallen apart recently.

  • Since their bye in Week 12, Arizona has allowed multiple passing TDs to every QB they’ve faced and it’s not exactly a murderer’s row (Dalton, Stafford, Goff, Wentz).

  • The Cardinals are giving up 46.7 FPG (!!) to WRs since their bye, which is a league-high in this stretch.

  • No stat here: But Ezekiel Elliott looks much better to my eyes. He’s moving a lot more swiftly and comfortably.

Denver Broncos

  • Javonte Williams getting just 7 carries in a game quarterbacked by Drew Lock in Week 16 with your playoff hopes on the line is coaching malpractice.

  • Courtland Sutton’s 7.3 FP against the Raiders marked a seven-week high. Lol.

Detroit Lions

  • Our guy Wes Huber nailed Amon-Ra St. Brown. Over the last four weeks, he’s the WR5 by FPG (21.6).

Green Bay Packers

  • Aaron Rodgers is absolutely chasing the MVP and certainly has made his case. Over the last five weeks, Rodgers is completing 71% of his passes for 8.4 YPA and a 125.3 passer rating. He has a 16:0 TD-to-INT ratio and he is averaging 26.6 FPG – making him the QB1 since Week 11. Not bad!

  • Next up? A Vikings secondary that Rodgers has owned for 364 yards & 4 TDs / 291 yards & 3 TDs / 385 yards & 4 TDs in his last three starts against them.

Houston Texans

  • After looking pretty hopeless to start the year, Davis Mills is quietly playing pretty well and is going to be a part of the Texans plans in 2022. Over the last three weeks, Mills has completed 69% of his throws for 7.5 YPA and a 102.5 passer rating.

  • Before last week, the Texans hadn’t scored more than 22 points against anyone besides the Jaguars.

Indianapolis Colts

  • Jonathan Taylor snapped his 11-game streak of finishing as the RB12 or better in weekly scoring with just 10.8 FP vs. the Cardinals.

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Pour one out for James Robinson. What a brutal end to his season.

Kansas City Chiefs

  • With Clyde Edwards-Helaire looking unlikely to play in Week 17, this is a reminder that Darrel Williams averaged 13.8 carries, 4.8 receptions, 94 scrimmage yards, and 17.8 FPG in his five starts earlier this year.

Las Vegas Raiders

  • The Raiders have now scored 17 or fewer points in seven of their last 8 games since their bye.

  • Vegas has scored a TD on just 41.7% of their red-zone possessions over their slump, which is second-worst in the league in this stretch.

Los Angeles Chargers

  • After a rough first three quarters, Justin Herbert back-doored his way to his fifth-straight finish as the QB10 or better with a literal last minute TD to Josh Palmer.

  • Herbert is now the QB2 in FPG (21.7) behind only Josh Allen (23.6).

Los Angeles Rams

  • Sony Michel has been a massive part of playoff marches as the Rams bell-cow. Over the last month, Michel is averaging 22.3 carries and 105.8 rushing yards per game.

  • The Rams get the Ravens next and Baltimore has now allowed a rushing TD in back-to-back games after not allowing a single RB to score on the ground since Week 7.

Miami Dolphins

  • Jaylen Waddle is averaging 17.5 FPG in Tua Tagovailoa’s starts, which would make him the WR9 over Stefon Diggs (16.8).

Minnesota Vikings

  • The last three meeting between the Vikings and Packers have resulted in 77, 50, and 65 total points scored. Hopefully we get one more shootout on SNF.

New England Patriots

  • While Damien Harris has barely been involved in the passing game – he’s yet to have more than 2 receptions in a game – he’s now scored at least one TD in eight of his last 9 starts.

New Orleans Saints

  • I can’t make sense of Alvin Kamara’s usage. He’s played on just 60% of the snaps over the last two weeks and has just four catches for 20 yards.

New York Giants

  • Jake Fromm is somehow worse than Mike Glennon. That is all.

New York Jets

  • After flopping in his first game back in Week 15 with 8/18 rushing, Michael Carter got 18 touches and went for 124 scrimmage yards against Jacksonville.

  • Carter’s 74% snap rate last week was a season-high.

Philadelphia Eagles

  • After Miles Sanders exited the game for the entire second-half with a broken hand, Boston Scott actually ended up getting more carries (11 to 6) and snaps (16 to 13) than Jordan Howard.

Pittsburgh Steelers

  • Najee Harris has been completely held back behind a bad offensive line this season and his 4.89 YPC vs. the Chiefs marked just the fifth time all year he’s gone over 4.0 YPC in a single game.

  • Ray-Ray McLoud getting 8 targets in an NFL game is laughable. The dude is averaging a pitiful 0.76 receiving yards gained per route run this season – which ranks 94th out of 95 qualifying WRs. Only Jalen Reagor (0.73) is worse.

San Francisco 49ers

  • It’s nice that HC Kyle Shanahan remembered that Deebo Samuel is a top-5 WR and should still do wide receiver things right in time for the fantasy playoffs.

  • It seems like Trey Lance will make his second start this season against Houston. In his first start back in Week 5, Lance ran it 16 times for 89 yards but only completed 15 of his 29 throws for 192 yards against Arizona.

  • Lance targeted Deebo a whopping nine times in that game, but that was without George Kittle and Brandon Aiyuk was still in the dog house.

Seattle Seahawks

  • It only took four years, but Rashaad Penny has arrived.

  • Penny’s career numbers are impressive: he’s turned his 232 carries into 1,212 yards (5.2 YPC) and has 8 TDs. Hopefully he can finally stay healthy.

  • Since returning in Week 10, just 77% of Russell Wilson’s throws beyond the line of scrimmage have been catchable. That is the fourth-lowest rate in the league per SIS and only Baker Mayfield, Taysom Hill, and Cam Newton (75%) rank worse in this span.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • Antonio Brown is averaging 2.97 receiving yards gained per route run, which is third-best behind only Kupp (3.13) and Deebo (3.01).

  • AB is the WR5 in FPG (19.3).

  • Ronald Jones got there with his late TD, but he has no juice as a receiver. Ke’Shawn Vaughn (11) ran more routes than him (9) last week.

Tennessee Titans



  • Terry McLaurin’ last five games: 12 catches, 164 yards, 0 TDs.
