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 Daniel Bellinger’s health: Bellinger suffered a ribs injury in the third quarter. He attempted to return but was ruled out for the rest of the game soon after.

  • Bellinger played 100% of the Giants' offensive snaps in the first half, including running a route on 100% of the team’s pass plays.
  • He caught all three passes thrown his way for 19 yards on a respectable 17.6% target share.
  • Nick Vannett took over as the receiving tight end for the rest of the game.
  • If Bellinger misses any time, Lawrence Cager would likely take over as the receiving tight end. He was a healthy inactive Sunday, but only to allow better run-blocking tight ends to be active.
  • Bellinger is the best waiver wire tight end who is widely available if he’s healthy due to his combination of playing time and talent.

Monitor Saquon Barkley’s health: Barkley showed up on the injury report Thursday with a neck injury and was later ruled a game-time decision.

  • Barkley usually dominates offensive snaps, but New York used a true three-man rotation.
  • New York started him, but he played only three snaps in the first quarter.
  • He played just over half of the offensive snaps over the second and third quarters.
  • The game was out of reach by the end of the third quarter, so New York didn’t play him at all in the fourth quarter. Other starters were also taken out by the middle of the fourth quarter.
  • Gary Brightwell would likely be the player to target if Barkley’s injury becomes more serious, as he saw a slight edge over Matt Breida for carries and early-down snaps.

The Eagles give Grant Calcaterra a chance: Jack Stoll has been the team’s primary tight end with Dallas Goedert on injured reserve, but the Eagles have given their sixth-round rookie more opportunities each week.

  • His playing time increased both from the Eagles running a lot of 12 personnel with a huge lead as well as him taking snaps away from Stoll in 11 personnel.
  • This led to him running double-digit routes for the first time. He also more than doubled his career targets, with four.
  • He caught two of those passes for 24 yards, finishing third on the team in receiving yards.
  • Goedert is eligible to return from injured reserve this upcoming week and was already spotted working off to the side of practice last week.
  • This means Calcaterra is likely to see fewer snaps, but he could be the team’s No. 2 tight end next season.

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.
