Week 13 Snap Count Analysis
Marquee Matchup of the Week: Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers
In what looks very likely to be a preview of the Super Bowl, the Niners-Ravens game had everything a fan could ask for: Lamar Jackson, Jimmy G, rain, a playoff atmosphere, and more Lamar Jackson. Mark Andrews led the Ravens’ pass catchers with 14 fantasy points on just 28 snaps (43%). Baltimore’s bulldozing rushing attack, led by Mark Ingram, had more snaps than usual due to the inclement weather. Ingram saw his snap percentage increase by around 50% (36 snaps). Gus Edwards saw 25 snaps, and rookie running back Justice Hill played 4 snaps. Meanwhile, only three wide receivers played in the rainy weather: Marquise Brown (37 snaps), Seth Roberts (32 snaps), and Willie Snead (25 snaps).
New Orleans Saints
On Thanksgiving day, the New Orleans Saints suffered an injury to a key player who doesn’t get the credit he deserves. Fullback Zach Line went down, forcing Drew Brees to drop back and pass more often than the Saints would have liked to do. Alvin Kamara saw the field 41 times (82%), but only managed a meager 12.4 fantasy points. Change-of-pace back Latavius Murray played 13 snaps but gained just two rushing yards. The passing game wasn’t all that great either, as All-Pro wideout Michael Thomas managed just six receptions for 48 yards. After allowing the Falcons to recover two onside kicks (three if you include the one that Atlanta jumped offsides on), New Orleans was lucky to get a win in Week 13.
Brandin Cooks vs. Robert Woods vs. Cooper Kupp vs. Josh Reynolds vs. Tyler Higbee
Ever since Cooks returned from his concussion, he has not been the same. He certainly has not performed as a fourth-round draft pick in the Fantasy world. However, the rest of the Rams got it going against a Cardinals defense that seems to be the answer to all struggling offenses. Goff threw for over 400 yards, Woods put up a monster performance, Kupp got back on track, and Higbee finished with over 100 receiving yards and a touchdown (granted Gerald Everett was out).
Patrick Laird vs. Myles Gaskin vs. De’Lance Turner
After the unproductive Kallen Ballage went down with an injury in the Dolphins’ upset victory over the Eagles, Miami’s backfield was full of no-names in the fantasy world. Laird is the best pass catcher, and his 60% snap share in Week 13 was a huge jump from 37% the week before and represented a career-high. While he was far from effective in the running game — finishing with just five yards on 10 carries — he did add a score and showed effectiveness in the passing game, where he caught 4 passes for 43 yards. If the Dolphins are smart, they’ll continue using his skills in the passing game, which were on display his last two years in college, when he recorded a combined 96 receptions.
If you made your way into the fantasy playoffs and your running back corps is weak, you could do worse than to add a player who should be the team’s bell cow until further notice. The Dolphins are no longer the laughing stock they were at the beginning of the season. Hopefully, they can finally learn how to utilize a running back this season as they have a trio of winnable matchups coming up as they take on the New York Jets, New York Giants, and Cincinnati Bengals.
Jordan Wilkins vs. Johnathan Williams vs. Nyheim Hines
So much for the Jonathan Williams experiment. After two weeks in a row with more than 100 yards on the ground, Williams gained just 14 on eight carries in Week 13. The ineffectiveness was on display early, and Frank Reich didn’t hesitate to make a quick change.
After seeing 46% and 67% snap shares in Weeks 11 and 12, respectively, Williams was on the field just 22% of the time on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. The player to come in and take immediate advantage was Jordan Wilkins. While Williams could only muster 1.75 yards per tote, Wilkins came in and averaged 4.27 on his 11 carries. He was also targeted three times in the passing game to Williams’ one. Making matters worse for Williams is the fact that Nyheim Hines played 43% of the snaps, his second-highest number this season.
