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.

Click to jump to a recap:


Monitor the Dalton Schultz injury: Schultz continued to deal with a knee injury, which greatly limited his playing time.

    • He played six snaps in the first quarter, one on a third down in the second quarter and one on a three-tight end, short-yardage play in the third quarter.
    • The fact that he was able to come back later in the game is a good sign his situation hasn’t gotten too much worse.
    • He’s appeared on the injury report the past two weeks with the knee injury.
    • It could be worth leaving him on the bench until he plays a full game and stops showing up on the injury report.

Consider Cutting Allen Robinson II: Robinson was held to under 25 receiving yards for the fourth time in five games with the Rams.

    • His 10.6% targets per route run is the fourth-lowest rate this season for those with at least 100 routes run.
    • The Rams started to rotate Robinson off the field more frequently.
    • Los Angeles stayed in 11 personnel the entire game, so this was subbing him out to put another wide receiver in rather than a rotation based on personnel group.
    • Second-year receiver Tutu Atwell played a career-high nine offensive snaps and ran eight routes after just 10 career routes in his other six games.
    • Atwell made his first career catch, for 54 yards.
    • Van Jefferson is currently on injured reserve and is expected to miss one more game. The Rams have a bye in Week 7, and Jefferson is expected to be back in Week 8.
    • He will further complicate the Rams’ wide receiver situation and potentially cut further into Robinson’s playing time.

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.
