Week Eight Rankings

Week Eight Rankings In week seven we saw Odell Beckham take another step towards fantasy football stardom and we also witnessed Tre Mason stake his claim to the starting running back job for the St. Louis Rams. We also saw Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller both fall to injury and Jerick Mckinnon looking like he belongs as a starting running back in the NFL. At wide receiver Jordy Nelson...

Tre Mason finally rises to top of backfield committee in St. Louis (NFC West touches and targets)

Touches and Targets Week 7: St. Louis Rams Tre Mason’s rise from inactive to (presumed) starter in St. Louis is swift and complete. After a strong showing in limited action in Week 6, Stacy took the ball on the team’s opening drive and failed to relinquish it. The rookie would finish with 18 carries for 85 yards, and scored an impressive touchdown on a run up the middle. He hits...

Ahmad Bradshaw continues to split snaps; score (AFC South touches and targets)

Touches and Targets Week 7: Indianapolis Colts Ahmad Bradshaw notched another receiving touchdown, to give him six through seven weeks and had another RB1 worthy outing with 88 total yards and two scores. He again played fairly even snaps with Trent Richardson, though Richardson held a four play edge and out-touched Bradshaw 18-13. Richardson had his most efficient game of the season...

Darren McFadden enjoying heavy relative workload (AFC West touches and targets)

Touches and Targets Week 7: Darren McFadden remains widely available in fantasy leagues, and while he isn’t running particularly well the Raiders are giving him the chance to do it often. He had 14 carries this week, and added four receptions on four targets, while Maurice Jones-Drew was the only other back to touch the ball and did so just three times on 12 snaps. McFadden has...

Torrey Smith increasing his role in Baltimore offense? (AFC North touches and targets)

Touches and Targets Week 7: Baltimore Ravens A week ago in this space, I suggested that Bernard Pierce’s role ahead of Lorenzo Taliaferro was a product of game flow with the Ravens throttling the Bucs. I was mistaken. While this game wound up as a throttling as well, Pierce was the second back on the field and saw action on 17 snaps, compared to just five for the rookie. He carried...

Colt McCoy's entry makes for productive day for Pierre Garcon (NFC East touches and targets)

Touches and Targets Week 7: Washington After dominating the snap count for the first month of the season, Alfred Morris has played equal or lesser snaps than Roy Helu in each of the last three weeks. This week, with Washington playing catch up in the second half, Morris didn’t see a lot of the field and finished having participated in 32 plays to 34 for Helu. Now, he had 18 carries...

Cordarrelle Patterson finds the end zone in Week 7; use remains limited (NFC North touches and targets)

Touches and Targets Week 7: Minnesota Vikings Mid-week, Mike Zimmer indicated that the team was going to have to find some carries for Matt Asiata, largely as a result of concerns over Jerick McKinnon’s pass blocking. That’s not how it played out, though. While the snap distribution wasn’t all that skewed (40-27) McKinnon had 19 carries and saw four pass targets, totalling...

Who Dat in the Saints Backfield

When it comes to fantasy football, the New Orleans Saints are known for Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham.  Sure they have one of the most consistent receivers in Marques Colston and an explosive rookie in Brandin Cooks, but even we didn't place to much value on them when we ranked our WRs.   Brees has produced just 3 double digit WRs this season, Cooks (15.5) in Week 1 on 7...

Roddy White sees heavy second half usage on quiet day for Julio Jones (NFC South Touches and Targets)

Touches and Targets Week 7: Atlanta Falcons The other shoe finally dropped with Antone Smith, who finished Week 7 with five touches and nine total yards, on the field for a total of 11 of 69 offensive snaps. No doubt, anyone who started Smith counting on the TD streak continuing is still kicking themselves today, but, the narrative here hasn’t changed. He remains an explosive back...

Kyle Orton's mission: get the ball to Sammy Watkins (AFC East Touches and Targets Week 7)

Touches and Targets Week 7: Buffalo Bills The silver lining for C.J. Spiller owners is that they can now stop being frustrated by the fact that, despite drawing the start, it took Fred Jackson’s injury to get him his first carry. With both Jackson and Spiller out of the game, Anthony Dixon was the team’s primary ball carrier and acquitted himself fairly well with 16 touches and...

DraftKings: To The Lynch, Wench!

If you know anything about me, or at least have read more than a few articles, you'll know that I have a few movies in my referential lexicon that I lean on heavily. Number will will probably always be Anchorman. I mean, seriously, within 17 weeks of fantasy football, San Diego gets referenced at least 17 times. How could you NOT go with the German definition when presented...
