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.
- 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.
• 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.
