This is a premium feature for Fulltime Members but is free to all this week. We’ll be adding analysis throughout the week.
Snap counts tell us who is playing but they don’t always paint a clear picture of who is producing for our fantasy football lineups. By digging deep into the snap counts from Week 2, we are able to pull some interesting takeaways that can help us win moving forward.
(minimum 10 snaps in Week 3)
SNAPS Total offensive snaps played by player.
SNAP % Percentage of offensive snaps played.
RUSH % Percentage of snaps played where player had a rushing attempt.
TGT % Percentage of snaps played where player was targeted by a pass attempt.
TOUCH % Percentage of snaps played where player touched the football (includes pass attempts, rush attempts and receptions).
FPTS Fantasy points scored by player.
PTS/100 SNAPS Average fantasy points scored by player per 100 snaps
Chase Edmonds continued to receive more touches, but as long as James Conner gets those valuable goal-line opportunities and a handful of targets, both backs are quite relevant.
It’s clear that Zack Moss is the Buffalo back to play. Both had a big role last week in a 40-0 blowout, but facing a high-scoring Kansas City attack in Week 5, Devin Singletary doesn’t look like an appealing start.
Melvin Gordon is still being utilized at a higher rate, but it’s only a matter of time before Javonte Williams takes over as Denver’s main back. Williams leads the NFL with a 37% forced tackles missed rate.
With another 48 (80%) snaps, Najee Harris leads all running backs this season with an average of 59.5 snaps per game, a whopping 92.6% snap rate. He also leads the position in targets (34) and receptions (26).
Keep an eye on the status of Giovani Bernard. Bernard sat out last week and that resulted in Leonard Fournette being used as a workhorse. Fournette out-snapped Ronald Jones 64-13 and racked up 25 opportunities compared to just 6 for Jones. If Bernard is sidelined once again, fire up Fournette as a quality RB2 against Miami.
Alex Collins worked his way into a near-even split with Chris Carson last week. Carson is dealing with a neck injury and is very questionable for Thursday. Collins should be a priority waiver wire add, even in a poor spot.
Houston’s Brandin Cooks leads the entire NFL with a 37.1% target share but proceed with caution in Week 5. Cooks is about the only thing that has gone decently in the Texans’ moribund offense and Bill Belichick is widely known for his ability to remove what an opposing team does best. Volume assures Cooks should be in lineups, but he’s more of a WR3/4 this week than locked-in WR2.
Terry McLaurin leads all NFL wideouts with a 98.4% snap rate and is the No. 6 fantasy wide receiver in PPR scoring. That breakout we predicted is happening, though it’s not because of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Josh Reynolds saw his first action of 2021 and was on the field for 78% of Tennessee’s snaps. Reynolds led the Titans’ receiving corps with an 18% target share and should be the club’s main No. 3 receiver once A.J. Brown and Julio Jones return to the lineup.
Outstanding debut for Jamison Crowder, who played just 15% of the Jets’ snaps but was awfully busy when in. Crowder was targeted on 9 of those snaps and scored 19.1 PPR points.
