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 Aaron Jones’ health: Jones left the game at the end of the second quarter with a shin injury.

  • The Packers used their running back significantly in the first half. Jones handled 12 touches, compared to 10 for A.J. Dillon. All other Packers combined had six.
  • Dillon took every snap for the Packers in the third quarter.
  • Jones returned for five snaps spread out over the fourth quarter, but Dillon still took the majority of the snaps (15).
  • Dillon would be a clear fantasy starter if Jones has to miss time.
  • Patrick Taylor is the Packers' third-string back. He would be the primary backup but would only play when Dillon needs a break, as he did today.

The Bears without Darnell Mooney: Mooney landed on injured reserve this past week, leaving Chicago with a six-man rotation at wide receiver.

  • Dante Pettis took over as the Bears' slot receiver. He played 34-of-35 snaps in 11 personnel and didn’t see a snap in any other personnel grouping. That led to just two targets for Pettis.
  • The five other receivers rotated throughout the game on the outside, with Chase Claypool and Equanimeous St. Brown as the two clear favorites, particularly on passing plays.
  • Claypool suffered an injury that cost him nine minutes of the game in the second quarter. He played 23-of-30 snaps in the second half, including 16-of-18 pass plays.
  • He is by far the best fantasy option of the six going forward, but since he doesn’t have the same role as Mooney, he might not see the same production.

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.
