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 the health of the Jaguars wide receivers: Jamal Agnew left the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury and didn’t return.

  • Both Agnew and Tim Jones were splitting playing time as the Jaguars' third receiver in place of Marvin Jones, who was out with a hamstring injury.
  • The two backups also split time in Week 4 when Zay Jones missed a game, where Agnew caught four passes for 50 yards and two touchdowns.
  • Tim Jones took all of the snaps in three-receiver sets after Agnew’s injury.
  • Zay Jones is the player to target off waivers regardless of the health of the other wide receivers. He led the Jaguars in receptions (5) and yards (53) against the Colts and also leads the team in receptions this season.

Monitor the health of the Colts running backs: Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines both missed this game, while Deon Jackson left early in the fourth quarter with a quad injury.

  • Jackson dominated snaps over Phillip Lindsay more than last week, playing a clear majority in all situations.
  • Lindsay saw a slight majority in two-minute drill snaps, only because he received 11 snaps in that situation to end the game after the Jackson injury.
  • Jackson should have been picked up prior to the game, but if he’s available it’s worth adding him just in case he is healthy while the other Colts are out.
  • This puts a big dent in Hines' fantasy value, as he is unlikely to be a clear handcuff after Jackson's good game.

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.
