A month ago, the Denver Broncos hosting the Indianapolis Colts would have been a potential playoff preview. Now, we have a matchup between two disappointing teams that are scuffling offensively. Still, that doesn’t mean there are major fantasy ramifications to consider with our Thursday Night Football Preview: Week 5.

Denver’s offense did show some signs of life last week but now has to move forward without star running back Javonte Williams. How will Nathaniel Hackett adjust his already scrutinized play-calling without Williams?

The Colts will also be without their star running back, which certainly won’t help an offense that has struggled and is turning the ball over way too often.

The Broncos are 3.5-point favorites and the over/under stands at 42.5 points.

Matchup 

TEAMOFFENSEPASSRUSHYDS/PLAYPOINTS
Indianapolis Colts 19 10 27 24 32
Denver Broncos 21 181816 30

 

It’s hard to believe that these are two of the three lowest-scoring teams in football. Indy’s struggles start up front, as the Colts’ offensive line ranks 27th in sack percentage. They haven’t opened up any holes for the ground game and rank 30th in fourth-down conversion.

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 NFL Snap Counts Report Week 4, we are able to pull […]

NFL Snap Counts Frequently Asked Questions

What are NFL snap counts?

Snap counts represent the total number of offensive plays a player participated in during a given week.

Why should I care about NFL snap counts?

The number of times a player is on the field for a player can be incredibly useful. It helps track usage, and how players are used and provide fantasy football managers with the ability to look beyond the usual on-field production by adding context to those more traditional statistics.

How are your NFL snap-count numbers compiled?

NFL snap counts are tracked by the NFL Game Statistics and Information System (GSIS). For the last two years, each player has had a chip inserted in his shoulder pads so that radio transmitters in stadiums can track his every move on the field. This is how the GSIS compiles snap counts (and other on-field information).

How can I use NFL snap counts to leverage my success in fantasy football?

Understanding playing time can be a key factor in setting your weekly lineup. In particular, understanding and identifying trends that might give you an early jump on acquiring free agents or making trades for players who might quietly be gaining playing time.

What are the possible drawbacks to using NFL snap counts as part of my fantasy football lineup strategy?

As FantasyPros recently noted, studying snap counts and the percentage of snaps played is one of the easiest ways that we can determine one of the most basic, but important questions for potential fantasy success: Is this player even on the field often enough to make a difference? That said, NFL snap counts only outline playing time, and being on the field is only the first step to fantasy relevance. It’s not the only step. Don’t emphasize snap counts over production.

The Snap Counts report and tool is invaluable in breaking down what’s happening behind the numbers.

 

SNAPS Total offensive snaps played by player.
SNAP % Percentage of offensive snaps played.
RUSH % Percentage of snaps played where player had a rushing attempt.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 5

With four games in the books, it’s doubtful anyone has escaped the rash of injuries and disappointing starts. With so many first-rounders underperforming or unavailable, the Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 5 has never been more important. Here are the […]

With four games in the books, it’s doubtful anyone has escaped the rash of injuries and disappointing starts. With so many first-rounders underperforming or unavailable, the Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 5 has never been more important.

Here are the top fantasy-relevant, low-rostered free agents to target ahead of Week 5, with FAAB recommendations.

FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget

 

Mike Boone (RB) Denver Broncos (15% FAAB) – Melvin Gordon would be the obvious add but he is rostered in three-quarters of ESPN leagues. Gordon also saw himself benched after another costly fumble. That opened the door for Boone to average 6.7 yards per carry against the Raiders in relief of Javonte Williams. Boone also ran 12 routes to Gordon’s 5. Williams’s season is over with a serious knee injury, so Boone should be a priority add in all formats.

Raheem Mostert (RB) Miami Dolphins (13% FAAB) – Now rostered in 53% of ESPN leagues, Mostert took a real step towards being Miami’s best fantasy RB. He out-snapped Chase Edmonds 46-18 and had 10 more opportunities in Cincinnati. Edmonds will remain involved in the passing game but for now, Mostert looks like the better overall fantasy asset.

Week 4: Def vs WR Matchups Report

This Fantasy Football tool shows you how well (or how poorly) each pass defense is performing against each position this NFL season.

RECEIVING YARDS ALLOWED BY POSITION


This new featured tool displays how each defense performs against their opponent’s receiving yardage gained by position.


So for example, if you see a team is ranked 1st vs. WR #1, that defense is currently the best at limiting their opponent’s WR #1 yardage compared to other teams. Or if you see a team is ranked 32nd against WR #2, that defense is the worst against WR #2’s or more accurately, the defense is allowing the most yards to WR #2’s compared to the other teams in the league. This a great tool to find and exploit useful matchups. Don’t forget to check out all the positions as well (WR #1, WR #2, Other WRs, TE & RB).
