PFF's fantasy football recap focuses on player usage and stats, breaking down all the vital information you need to achieve fantasy success in 2022.

Monitor Chase Edmonds’ health: Edmonds suffered an ankle injury on the first drive of the game and didn’t return.

  • Edmonds played mainly as a third-down back in Week 10 but seemed like he was going to have a larger role in this game.
  • Melvin Gordon III started for the Broncos as usual, but Edmonds replaced Gordon on a first down three plays in. He proceeded to play the following three snaps before suffering his injury.
  • Edmonds ran the ball twice for six yards on his three snaps.
  • The injury moved Gordon back to the primary third-down role, which allowed Latavius Murray more time on early downs.
  • Murray ran the ball 17 times. He averaged less than 3.0 yards per carry but did score a touchdown.
  • Murray would be worth a waiver wire addition if we find out the Edmonds injury is serious. If not, this is likely a backfield to avoid because it could be an even more crowded three-man committee.

Broncos replacement receivers: Denver was down two of its top three receivers, with both Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler inactive.

  • Kendall Hinton was elevated to a full-time starter. He played on the outside in two-receiver sets and moved into the slot for three-receiver sets.
  • He put together a solid performance with three receptions for 57 yards, finishing second on the team in receiving yards.
  • Undrafted rookie Brandon Johnson was the outside receiver in three-receiver sets. This was his first NFL game. He caught one of his two targets for two yards. 
  • In the next two weeks, the Broncos have favorable matchups against the Panthers and Ravens, who rank in the top 10 in allowing fantasy points to wide receivers.
  • Denver's No. 2 receiver in those games could provide some fantasy value despite the low-scoring offense.

Add Mack Hollins: The Raiders receiver caught six of nine targets for 52 yards.

  • He’s been a clear starter for Las Vegas all season.
  • Hollins has been up and down throughout the year but should be a more consistent contributor on offense with both Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller on injured reserve.
  • He caught eight passes for 158 yards and a touchdown in his best game of the year.
  • The Broncos had allowed the fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this season heading into the game, so Hollins’ life should only get easier from here on out.

Table Notes

Snaps include plays called back due to penalties, including offensive holding or defensive pass interference. The other three stats have these plays removed.

Targets may differ from official NFL sources. The most likely discrepancy would be from a clear thrown-away pass, where the NFL may give the target to the nearest receiver, while this data will not.

Carries are only on designed plays. Quarterback scrambles won’t count for the total number of carries in the game.
