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.

Jump to another recap:


Monitor the Wan’Dale Robinson injury: Robinson suffered a knee injury early in the fourth quarter and was quickly ruled out. He was seen on crutches after the game. The injury is feared to be serious.

  • Robinson was having the best game of his career, catching nine passes for 100 yards, and was the primary source of offense for the Giants through three quarters.
  • He was rarely leaving the field, as New York was staying in three- or even four-wide receiver sets. Robinson rarely leaves the field in those situations and is almost always on the field in two-receiver sets.
  • He was on pace to set a career high in offensive snap rate had he not been injured.
  • Robinson is a waiver wire target this week if we find out the injury isn’t serious.
  • Richie James Jr. took over as the team’s slot receiver after the injury. James had that role for most of September and the start of October when Robinson was out with a knee patella sprain.
  • If the injury is serious, the Giants will be even more desperate to sign Odell Beckham Jr. The team appears to be one of the two frontrunners for him.
  • The Giants used Darius Slayton and Isaiah Hodgins as their outside receivers to start the game.
  • Kenny Golladay started rotating in during the second quarter and ended up with more snaps than Hodgins over the last three quarters of the game.

D.J. Chark Jr.’s return: Chark returned from injured reserve after missing the past six games with issues with his ankle.

  • The Lions eased him in very sparingly, playing two or three snaps each quarter.
  • Typically when a team is bringing back a starting wide receiver on a snap count, they tend to bring him in on third downs or other clear passing situations.
  • The Lions didn’t seem to follow any kind of pattern, bringing him in for a mix of pass and run plays on a variety of downs.
  • Chark caught four passes for 52 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, and three passes for 46 yards in Week 3. There is a chance he could find fantasy relevancy this season if he gets closer to 100%.

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.
