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 J.K. Dobbins‘ health: Dobbins’ knee tightened up, and he missed the last 40 minutes of the game.

  • Dobbins played 16 snaps to Kenyan Drake‘s seven snaps over the first three drives.
  • Drake played all but six offensive snaps the rest of the way.
  • Mike Davis served as the third-string back, and he continues to handle significant work at the goal line.
  • Justice Hill missed his second straight game with a hamstring injury but could be part of the rotation when he’s back.
  • Gus Edwards could soon be back and further complicate this running back situation.
  • It’s good to add Edwards and potentially Drake, but it would be hard to trust any of these backs in the short term.
  • There could be one or two fantasy starters in the group if it can stay a two-man rotation, but we could see three or four backs in some kind of rotation going forward.

Add Daniel Bellinger: The rookie tight end caught all five passes thrown his way for 38 yards and a touchdown and has gained the much-needed third-down snaps.

  • The fourth-round pick had been the Giants' primary tight end on early downs this season, but Tanner Hudson was taking the third-down snaps.
  • Bellinger played all 16 third downs this week against the Ravens.
  • Hudson’s only snaps in this game came in three-tight end sets.
  • Bellinger now has the playing time of a fantasy starter, and he’s been the highest-graded Giants receiver on the season.
  • He now needs only the target share to be a fantasy starter. It’s better to pick him up before he reaches that point.

Add Wan’Dale Robinson: The Giants rookie receiver returned to the Giants after a Week 1 injury. He was eased into action but looked good in a limited time.

  • In total, 13 of his 15 snaps came in 11 personnel, where he rotated in and out with Richie James Jr.
  • James had served as the team’s slot receiver in recent weeks and had been the one constant among the Giants' receiver rotation over the first third of the season.
  • Robinson caught three of his four targets for 37 yards and a touchdown.
  • We can expect Robinson to see more playing time next week and his time continue to rise until he gets all of the slot snaps in 11 personnel.
  • He could become the new lead target for the Giants going forward with all of the injuries the team has faced.
  • Darius Slayton, Marcus Johnson and David Sills continued to rotate as the outside receivers.

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.
