Henderson got the start for the Rams and operated as the
lead back playing on 82% of the snaps. He played exclusively
on three out of the first four drives with Cam
Akers (18%) getting a short-lived drive that ended in a
turnover. Taking an early-season “L” on Akers.
(5%) fumbled on his first carry for the Bills. Yikes. Kareem
Hunt started his career in similar fashion. Cook was a distant
third in usage behind Devin
Singletary (59%) and Zack
Moss (37%). Moss had 6 targets in the passing game… very
notable for PPR leagues… we’ll see if that continues.
and Rex Burkhead
handled all of the running back touches for the Texans but Burkhead
played a bigger role than expected and operated as the lead
back with a 71% snap share to Pierce’s 29%. This is significant
considering the Texans had the lead most of the game. 8 targets
for Burkhead, 1 for Pierce. Burkhead will a priority add on
the waiver wire this week.
(52.5%) and Kareem
Hunt (56.2%) played a similar number of snaps and handled
their typical roles with Chubb logging 22 carries and Hunt seeing
(22 snaps) had 11 touches and Rhamondre
Stevenson had 10 touches. Ty
Montgomery was more involved than fantasy owners would like,
playing on 21 snaps ahead of Rhamondre’s 14 snaps. Update:
Montgomery has been placed on IR and will miss four weeks.
Mostert got the bulk of work at running back for the Dolphins
with Edmonds leading the way with a 63% snap share. Edmonds
finished with 16 touches, Mostert with 6.
led the three-headed backfield in Philadelphia with a 52% snap
share while Kenneth
Gainwell (30%) and Boston
Scott (18%) also seeing action. Sanders and Gainwell are
the only two worth considering on a weekly basis.
It looks like we’re getting a three-man committee for the
Chargers, especially early in the season as they try and keep
(18 touches) fresh. Only a 49% snap share for Ekeler, 44% for
and 27% for Joshua
played 37 snaps while AJ
Dillon played 31. It’s going to be difficult for either
to reach RB1 status with them sharing playing time this evenly.
Dillon out-touched Jones 15-to-8 but don’t expect this to be
a trend. I’d expect a more even distribution moving forward.
The Chiefs used a three-man RBBC with Clyde
Edwards-Helaire (39%), Jerick
McKinnon (39%) and Isiah
Pacheco all seeing action. McKinnon was used mostly in passing
situations. This was also a lop-sided win so it’s possible we’ll
see more CEH in neutral game scripts.
Despite the box score, Allen
Robinson (2 tgts, 1-12) was on the field for the Rams… 97%
of the snaps. Bills were getting pressure with four, and Stafford
noted Buffalo played a lot of cover-2, which seeminlgy meant
Robinson was double-teamed on the sideline. Not panicking on
A-Rob, but slightly concerned. Ben
Skowronek (88%) was the clear third wideout with Van
Jefferson (knee) sidelined.
played on 92% of the snaps for Steelers and notably had 6 rush
attempts to go along with his 4-18-0 line as a receiver. Are
we going to see Claypool morph into a Deebo, C-Patt type weapon?
The Commanders operated as expected with Terry
McLaurin (90% of snaps) and Jahan
Dotson (88%) working on the outside with Curtis
Samuel handling the slot. With a favorable schedule the
next few weeks (@DET, PHI, @DAL, TEN), Dotson and Samuel are
waiver wire considerations if available.
(60% of snaps) was operating as the third wide receiver for
the 49ers. However, he’s not a recommended fantasy option given
the struggles of Trey
Lance and the run-first philosophy of the offense.
London led the Falcons’ wideouts with 72% snap share.
Thomas (hamstring) played on 61% of the snaps and was a
non-factor in the first half. That changed in the 2nd half when
he scored twice. Rookie Chris
Olave (74%) and Jarvis
Landry (73%) both had a higher snap share. Landry finished
with a 7-114-0 line.
played 94% of the snaps for the Rams and received 11 targets.
Whoa. He only had one double-digit target game last season (Wk9
finished Week 1 with an 86% snap share for the Bills. Only two
O.J. Howard scored twice for Texans but played on only 17% of
the snaps behind Brevin Jordan (60%) and Pharaoh Brown (66%).
This was likely an outlier for Howard who isn’t worth
chasing after on the waiver wire.
Isaiah Likely played on 45% of the snaps for the Ravens and
saw 4 targets that resulted in 0 catches.
Tyler Conklin operated as the main tight end for the Jets
playing on 92% of the snaps and posting a 4-14-1 line on 7
targets. He’s worth a look if you’re streaming
TEs. C.J. Uzomah played on 27% if the snaps and wasn’t
With George Kittle out, Tyler Kroft (37 snaps) played the
most of the remaining 49ers’ tight ends. You can look
elsewhere for a streamer.
Cole Kmet was out there – 83% of the snaps - but had
only 1 target.
