Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt had been splitting the workload
fairly evenly the first two weeks of the season. This week,
we saw a slight increase for Chubb, playing on 63% of the snaps
and Hunt playing on 44% of the snaps. Still within their normal
range of outcomes.
Jaylen Warren’s snap share the first three weeks: Wk
1 (37%), Wk2 (29%), Wk 3 (20%). He’s still just a handcuff
without any standalone value.
The Ravens running game outside of Lamar is still broken
but J.K. Dobbins did return in Week 3 and played on 43% of
the snaps splitting time almost evenly with Justice Hill (48%).
Mike Davis was inactive. Expect Dobbins’ usage to increase
Stevenson (41) continues to out-snap Damien
Harris (25). Both backs scored in Week 3. For the season,
Harris has 41 touches, Stevenson 36. Rhamondre seems to be pickup
Jerick McKinnon (52% of snaps) continues to see the field
a significant amount of time resulting in Clyde Edwards-Helaire
(40%) struggling to produce RB2 value without extreme efficiency.
Nyheim Hines played on 45% of the snap for the Colts and
is getting 5 to 6 targets a game, but is still struggling
to be valuable in PPR leagues.
Alvin Kamara (15-61-0; 2-12-0) played on 70% of the snaps
while Mark Ingram played on 33%. Kamara is off to a rough
start in 2022 but does have decent matchups against Minnesota
and Seattle coming up.
After a Week 1 blip, Dameon Pierce (59%) has a firm grip
on the lead back role in Houston. Even though Rex Burkhead
(41%) is still a thorn, Pierce is getting the majority of
touches and best used in projected positive or neutral game
David Montgomery (11 snaps) left early with an ankle injury
but it doesn’t appear to be serious. Khalil Herbert
(38 snaps) would be a workhorse if Montgomery were to miss
Raheem Mostert (24 snaps) and Chase Edmonds (19 snaps) continued
their timeshare with Edmonds finding the endzone twice. This
is going to be a frustrating backfield to project moving forward.
Swift (41% of snaps) suffered a shoulder injury in this
game and is going to miss a couple weeks. That leaves the door
open for Jamaal
Williams (45%) to be a viable RB2.
Dalvin Cook (shoulder) played on 61% of the snaps for the
Vikings with Alexander Mattison (39%) showing a glimmer of
standalone value. Monitor Cook’s shoulder injury.
Samaje Perine played on 34% of the snaps for the Bengals
seeing 11 touches (his most since Week 7 last season). Joe Mixon (66%) was banged in the fourth quarter leading to Perine’s
increased snap share.
Breece Hall (51%) and Michael Carter (49%) continue their
even snap share but it was the rookie Hall who saw 11 targets
in the passing game compared to 2 for Carter. That’s
22 targets for Hall in three games.
Despite not traveling with the team, and being listed as
Questionable, Josh Jacobs assumed his normal role for the
Raiders playing on 64% of the snaps. Brandon Bolden (36%)
was the clear backup with Ameer Abdullah and Zamir White failing
to get on the field.
The Eagles running back rotation continues to be three-headed
with Miles Sanders (59% of snaps), Kenneth Gainwell (31%)
and Boston Scott (10%) all seeing action. Gainwell had 3 rushing
attempts and didn’t see a target in Week 3.
Antonio Gibson (44% of snaps) hasn’t seen more than
14 carries in any game this season. J.D. McKissic (53%) saw
9 targets as the Commanders trailed the Eagles all day.
James Robinson (58% of snaps) is still operating the as the
lead back for the Jaguars over Travis Etienne (43%). Robinson
has out-touched Etienne 57 to 34 through three games.
Aaron Jones played on 63% of the snaps for the Packers, AJ Dillon (53%). This is inline with what we’ve seen the
over the first two weeks.
Leonard Fournette (91% of snaps) continues to dominate the
running back playing time and touches in Tampa Bay. HC Lovie
Smith is chirping that the other RBs need to get involved.
The Rams are working a two-back committee with Cam Akers
and Darrell Henderson playing the same number of snaps (24)
in Week 3. Akers did out-touch Henderson 12 to 4. This will
be a weekly pick your poison with very little upside.
Rashaad Penny played on 69% of the snaps for Seattle with
Kenneth Walker playing 13%. This offense doesn’t have
enough juice to make both backs fantasy viable. Third-down
RB Travis Homer sustained a rib injury that will cause him
to miss some time.
Ezekiel Elliott saw a 64% snap share Monday night compared
to Tony Pollard’s 44%. Touches were very close –
16 for Zeke, 13 for Pollard with only 1 reception between
the two. Pollard averaged 8.1 yards per carry.
Saquon Barkley played on 92% of the snaps for the Giants.
He’s one of the true workhorses in fantasy football.
The Steelers main three wideouts Diontae Johnson (98%), Chase Claypool (93%) and George Pickens (76%) continue to dominate
playing time. However, the offense isn’t explosive or
efficient leading to lackluster fantasy output.
Jarvis Landry (30% of snaps) and Michael Thomas (68%) were
both banged up in this game which partially led to Chris Olave
(77%) notching 13 targets for the second week in a row. Even
so, Olave has entered into weekly Flex consideration.
Shi Smith (36%) had been running as the clear No.3 receiver
for the Panthers the first two weeks but saw his snap count
reduced in Week 3 with Laviska Shenault (18%) and Rashard Higgins (10%) getting some game action.
For deep leagues, Chris Moore (53% of snaps) is working as
the third wide receiver for the Texans.
The Bears run-heavy offense is making all of their receiving
option worthless for fantasy football. Darnell Mooney played
on 94% of the snaps in Week 3.
Corey Davis (68) and Elijah Moore (73) continue to log the
most wide receiver snaps for the Jets but Garrett Wilson (49)
has seen double-digit targets the last two weeks and has been
the most productive wideout on the team.
Ben Skowronek is working exclusively as the WR3 for the Rams
playing on 85% of the snaps in Week 3. Van Jefferson doesn’t
seem close to returning.
Greg Dortch is a full-time player and will continue to play
this role as long as Rondale Moore remains out. A.J. Green
left this game with a knee injury but it remains to be seen
how the Cardinals will play it once Moore returns.
Drake London (84%) is dominating snap counts for the Falcons
wideouts and has weekly WR2 value. All other Atlanta wide
receivers can be ignored.
David Njoku’s blow-up game (9-89-1) was likely matchup-based
as he played a high percentage of snaps (88%) just like he has
the first two weeks.
Isaiah Likely came into Week 3 a little banged up but did
play on 33% of the snaps. Josh Oliver (40%) is also involved
making Likely unstartable at this time.
Hunter Henry (70%) and Jonnu Smith (49%) continue to share
time for the Patriots but neither are producing enough be
low-end TE1 considerations.
The Colts used three tight ends against the Chiefs in Week
3 with Mo Alie-Cox
Granson (42%) and Jelani
Woods (23%) all seeing time. Despite the 2 TDs from Woods,
none of them are fantasy viable.
