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 Travis Etienne’s health: Etienne suffered a foot injury in the first quarter and didn’t come back in the game.

  • He did return to the sidelines with his pads still on after a trip to the locker room, and after the game indicated he thinks he will be OK for next week.
  • JaMycal Hasty took over as the main running back for the rest of the game. He was ineffective running with the ball, averaging 2.3 yards per carry, but made his mark as a receiver, which helped lead Jacksonville to victory.
  • Snoop Conner became the primary backup. The fifth-round rookie saw his first career carries and ended with 11 yards on three attempts.
  • The Jaguars added Darrell Henderson from the Rams off waivers this past week. He was inactive today due to the short turnaround, but there is a chance Henderson could take on a significant role if Etienne misses time.
  • Both Hasty and Henderson could be considered waiver wire targets with a decent upcoming matchup against the Lions, but we would probably need both bad news regarding Etienne’s injury and some announcement of how the backs would be used before feeling comfortable with starting one of the backups.

Add Zay Jones: Jones dominated the Ravens’ secondary and put together a career-high 145 receiving yards.

  • Jones was a top-32 wide receiver heading into Week 12 in terms of routes, targets and receptions.
  • His main problems were a low yards per catch figure and only one touchdown reception.
  • His playing time has declined a little bit in recent weeks, but he’s still seeing enough snaps and routes to be a factor.
  • Jones is specifically a good option for fantasy teams looking for help the next two weeks, especially while eight NFL teams still have bye weeks. The Jaguars play the Lions and Titans, who both rank top five in allowing fantasy points to wide receivers.

Gus Edwards’ return: Edwards returned from hamstring and knee injuries that kept him out since Week 8.

  • He returned to the top of the Ravens’ depth chart, running the ball 16 times for 52 yards and a touchdown.
  • Kenyan Drake was reduced to splitting time with Justice Hill in passing situations. The two combined for three carries and one target.
  • It would be fine to release Drake from fantasy rosters at this point, as it would likely take another injury to Edwards for Drake to see significant time again.
  • J.K. Dobbins remains on injured reserve but is eligible to come back whenever he is healthy.
  • The Ravens have the easiest schedule for fantasy running backs over the rest of the season. Edwards should be one of the top waiver wire pickups this week, as he can at least help in the short term before Dobbins is back and likely still see double-digit carries even when Dobbins returns.

The Ravens without Isaiah Likely: The Ravens rookie showed up on the injury report Friday with an ankle injury. He received a “questionable” designation for the game but ultimately was inactive.

  • Josh Oliver saw an increase in snaps, which was also the case recently when Mark Andrews was out.
  • Oliver ended up leading the team in receiving yards (76) while also scoring the team’s only receiving touchdown.
  • Ideally Likely will be back next week, resulting in a decrease in snaps for Oliver. Even if Likely misses time, it’s unlikely Oliver will consistently be a receiving asset for Baltimore.

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.
