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:


Donald Parham’s return: Parham was elevated off injured reserve Saturday and joined the Chargers’ tight end rotation.

  • He was placed on injured reserve in early November with a hamstring injury. He had played only two games this season.
  • The tight ends were largely used interchangeably by formation.
  • Gerald Everett played the majority of snaps in 11 personnel, but Parham took several snaps from that group, including some snaps on third downs.
  • All three of them took significant snaps in two-tight end sets. Typically, if only one of them ran a pass route, it was Everett.
  • Parham mostly ended up taking snaps from Tre’ McKitty, but he also cut into Everett’s snaps and routes.
  • Three of Everett’s six worst games in terms of offensive snap percentage have come in Parham’s three outings this season.
  • Everett is still likely good enough to be a fantasy starter these last two weeks, but his ceiling is lower now.

Chigoziem Okonkwo’s fantasy value continues to rise: Okonkwo led the Titans in targets and ran more pass routes than Austin Hooper.

  • He caught four of his five targets for 54 yards. He finished second on the team in receiving yards.
  • He’s played 32 snaps in 11 personnel over the past two weeks after playing 40 snaps from 11 personnel over the first 13 weeks.
  • The Titans even gave him a carry, from which he gained six yards.
  • He remains the top tight end in terms of yards per route run (2.63) among those with at least 50 routes. The next closest player is Travis Kelce at 2.26. 
  • Tennessee has a favorable matchup against Houston next week. There is plenty of room for Okonkwo to grow in terms of playing time and routes run, but he’s been the clear top target in Tennessee recently and he can be in fantasy starting lineups.

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.
