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 Michael Carter’s health: Carter left the game early in the third quarter. Head coach Robert Saleh said after the game Carter sprained his ankle, but the severity of the sprain is unclear.
- James Robinson was a surprise healthy inactive, as he apparently fell to fourth on the depth chart.
- Robinson’s absence didn’t lead to any increased playing time for Carter or receiving back Ty Johnson. Instead, undrafted rookie Zonovan Knight took the snaps that typically had gone to Robinson.
- Knight took over for Carter after he left with injury. He played 18 of a possible 22 snaps on first or second down once Carter exited.
- Knight put together a solid performance, with 14 carries for 69 yards.
- Johnson might seem like a good waiver target after he scored a touchdown, but his role remained unchanged throughout the past few weeks. He played only on third downs and a very occasional early down.
- Knight should be the popular waiver wire target, regardless of Carter’s health.
- Keep Robinson on rosters just in case the Carter injury is serious.
- Three of the Jets’ next five opponents are among the 10 best teams when it comes to allowing fantasy points to running backs.
Corey Davis’ return: Davis regained his role in the Jets' starting lineup after getting injured in Week 7.
- He returned to playing over 50% of offensive snaps but didn’t play quite as often as normal.
- Davis played 24 of a possible 28 snaps in 11 personnel but shared time with both Denzel Mims and Braxton Berrios in two-tight end sets.
- The Jets' offense primarily focused on Garrett Wilson. Davis was tied with three other players for the second-most targets (three).
- New York has the sixth-easiest schedule for wide receivers over the next five weeks, so there is a chance Davis could put up some good numbers moving forward.
- Davis was a top-30 fantasy wide receiver in three of his first six games this season.
- Mooney and Claypool both played all 11 snaps from 11 personnel in the first half, while St. Brown played eight such snaps.
- Claypool played 5-of-13 snaps in other personnel groups, while Mooney played in 4-of-13.
- Mooney already saw his playing time decrease slightly in those situations last week, but this marks a more dramatic change in playing time prior to his injury.
- Mooney suffered an ankle injury early in the third quarter and was quickly ruled doubtful to return.
- Dante Pettis took over as the primary slot receiver for the rest of the game.
- St. Brown was getting his ankle or foot checked out between quarters. He tried to play early in the fourth quarter but didn’t last long.
- Claypool went to the medical tent for an undisclosed reason early in the fourth quarter and didn’t return.
- Byron Pringle was the primary backup on the outside, followed by Velus Jones Jr.
- This is all a situation to avoid, as the Bears finished with just 179 passing yards and have the seventh-worst schedule for wide receivers over the next five weeks, which includes a bye week.
- Evans ran the ball nine times for 34 yards and caught a 33-yard pass.
- Ebner’s only offensive snap happened in a two-back set on a pass play.
- Evans doesn’t have any standalone value, as David Montgomery is still playing the clear majority of snaps in every situation. But Evans is the new handcuff in the short term.
- Khalil Herbert is the usual backup. Herbert will miss at least two more games while on injured reserve.
• 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.
