Monitor Travis Etienne’s health: Etienne suffered an ankle injury in the fourth quarter and was ruled questionable to return. He was able to return to the game in overtime.

  • Etienne ran the ball 19 times for 103 yards. He had rushed for 55 yards or less in each of his past four games.
  • He left the game with 10 minutes left to go in the fourth quarter, which led to JaMycal Hasty taking over for the rest of the fourth quarter. Fourteen of Hasty’s 16 snaps occurred during the fourth quarter.
  • Etienne played all three snaps of overtime.
  • The fact that Etienne returned hopefully means he is fine, but it wouldn’t be the first time a player returned to a game and later found the injury was more serious than anticipated.
  • Hasty is the best waiver wire target for someone who has a free bench space and is looking for a high-upside option in Week 17.
  • Hasty played 78% of offensive snaps in Week 12 when Etienne was out with an injury. The Jaguars play the Texans in Week 17.
  • Houston has allowed the most fantasy points to running backs.

The Cowboys’ evolving wide receiver room: Dallas surprisingly stuck with CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and Noah Brown as their top three receivers for one more week.

  • The Cowboys notably signed former Pro Bowl receiver T.Y. Hilton earlier in the week, but he was inactive for this game.
  • Dallas has also made it clear they might still sign Odell Beckham Jr., another sign they aren’t happy at wide receiver.
  • James Washington was elevated off injured reserve before last week’s game. Surprisingly, Washington saw fewer snaps this week than last.
  • Gallup played ahead of Brown in two-wide receiver sets for the third time this season.
  • The fact that Hilton didn’t play, Washington barely played and Gallup stayed ahead of Brown should have led to a big game from Gallup. Instead, he caught one pass for two yards.
  • It was Lamb and Brown who had the big games. Lamb gained over 100 yards for the third time this season, while Brown caught two touchdowns.
  • It’s best not to trust any wide receiver on this team outside of Lamb, as we could see some big changes as soon as next week.


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.
