The Fantasy Football Utilization Report: Week 17 waiver, trade and drop candidates

Volume is king in fantasy football, and this report will help you understand which players are due more or less according to their roles. It is a great way to know who is overperforming (sell high) and underperforming (buy low) based on historical data tied to metrics we know drive volume.

  • Overall offense: Which teams are enabling winning volume and efficiency across game scripts
  • Quarterbacks: How involved is each quarterback in the running game and who is unlocking upside for their weapons
  • Running backs: Which backs are handling early downs, short-yardage and passing downs
  • Tight ends: Who is running enough routes and meeting critical targets per route thresholds
  • Receivers: Which receivers are in the most routes and operating broadly within the offense

WEEK 16 TAKEAWAYS

Waiver Wire

Note: Waivers are listed in order of priority without FAB allocations this week since it is the championship week for most leagues. Prioritize what you need and get it.

Tier 1: Likely to start in all formats

WR – Elijah Moore is available in 45-55% of formats and is eligible to return from IR. He is an instantaneous WR2 with upside if active.

RB – Boston Scott will take over Miles Sanders' role and is a low-end RB2 this weekend. If Jordan Howard (questionable) can't suit up, Scott is a high-end RB2 option in the second-most run-heavy attack in the NFL.

RB – Darrel Williams could handle over half of the Chiefs' backfield work, including the passing downs, if Clyde Edwards-Helaire (week-to-week) can't go. He is a mid-range RB2 with upside in that scenario.

Tier 2: Likely to start in deeper formats

 WR – Isaiah McKenzie has WR4 and WR11 finishes in two spot starts for Beasley. Beasley has a chance to play if he can clear COVID protocols, but if he is out, McKenzie is a high-end WR3 with upside.

WR – K.J. Osborn has WR21, WR17, WR64 and WR15 finishes in games Adam Thielen (questionable) has missed or not been a full participant this season. He is a solid WR3 if Thielen is out.

WR – Josh Palmer will start again in Week 17 with Mike Williams (COVID-19) already ruled out. Palmer filled in for Keenan Allen in Week 14 and posted a WR15 finish. Last week he finished as WR22 replacing Williams.

RB – Rex Burkhead has handled over 60% of the work in the last two games with David Johnson out. If Johnson can't go in Week 17, he is a low-end RB2 option again. If Johnson does play, he returns to RB3 territory.

RB – Dare Ogunbowale led the Jaguars backfield in Week 16 with James Robinson (heel) knocked from the contest. However, the team didn't have any other options available, making the backfield tougher to forecast for Week 17. Ryquell Armstead could be more involved, and Jacksonville is one of the worst offenses in the NFL.

Tier 3: Likely can't make championship starting lineups in most formats

QB – Trey Lance could start for Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb). His heavy involvement in the running game will create a solid floor with upside if he must start. He is a high-end QB2 for Week 17.

RB – Cam Akers is a stash play if you have a Week 18 championship format. There is a chance he plays this weekend, and the Rams are thin behind Sony Michel at running back.

See more waiver recommendations below under each team.

Upgrades

RB – Sony Michel is an every-down back in a top-five offense and is a set-it-and-forget RB1 for championship weekend.

RB – Michael Carter handled over 70% of the snaps, including most of the passing-down work in Week 16. The Jets reduced their backfield rotation to two backs rather than three, making Carter a mid-range RB2.

See the team summaries below for more upgrade news.

Downgrades

RB – Saquon Barkley played only 34% of the snaps in Week 16, and Devontae Booker spelled him often in the passing game. He remains the lead option on early downs, but that isn't worth much in one of the worst offenses in the NFL. The former No. 1 overall fantasy pick is a low-end RB2.

Downgrade: Patterson saw his lowest share of rushing attempts (37%) in four games, and his once astronomical TPRR has come back to earth (9% and 8%). The veteran wonder could get things going again with more explosive runs (0% over the last two games) and more targets — the underlying route data is similar to earlier in the season.

Note: Gage had another solid target-share day (24%), but the Falcons ran a season-low 45 plays. The late-season breakout got open on 57% of single-man opportunities and saw a target on 29% of those routes.

Note: Pitts had a tremendous game, getting open on 63% of his single-man coverage looks. The rookie saw help coverage on 27% of his routes.

Monitoring: Brown's routes and target shares remain strong despite struggles in the box score over the last few games. The Ravens are on pace to throw the ball 14% more than 2020, meaning Brown is still in a good spot and should break free from this slump soon.

Monitoring: Moss returned to the lineup over Breida but was a nonfactor.

Upgrade: Singletary withstood the return of Moss to the lineup and is an every-week RB2 moving forward after three consecutive top-15 finishes.

Rest of season:

  • Singletary: mid-range RB2
  • Breida: free agent
  • Moss: stash RB5

Waiver: McKenzie is an upside WR3 if Beasley (COVID-19) misses another game. McKenzie has been nothing short of extraordinary in two spot starts over the past two seasons.

Note: Davis won't play in Week 17 (COVID-19) and is droppable unless your league plays a Week 18 championship. Even then, we don't know if Davis will reclaim his role. Most likely, he will rotate with Sanders.

Downgrade: Moore has only three top-24 finishes since Week 5 and hasn't cracked the top-12 since Week 3. His utilization remains elite, but the Panthers have to make quarterback changes in 2022. Out of 36 receivers with at least 200 routes and an ADOT between nine and 12, Moore Ranks 32nd in catchable pass percentage (70%).

Monitoring: Mixon reclaimed some passing-down work (64% routes) from Perine with 20% of the LDD work and 78% of the two-minute offense. He is a mid-range to high-end RB1 in games where his routes push towards 50%. The veteran back as RB3, RB35, RB23, RB4, RB2, RB4, and RB2 finishes when he gets to 49% or more of the routes.

Upgrade: Schultz has returned to relevance despite the crowded receiving corps. His range of outcomes is broad, but the upside is high enough to push him into the mid-TE2 territory.

Downgrade: Williams returned to action and reclaimed the lead spot, but the backfield is now a three-way committee. The veteran had a team-high 58% rushing attempts. Reynolds served as the change of pace back and split passing-down duties with Igwebuike. Swift practiced last week and could return in Week 17.

Note: St. Brown has eclipsed the 30% target share mark in four consecutive games (32%, 31%, 40%, 31%) and has three top-six finishes. The rookie began the season operating almost exclusively as a slot receiver, but 32%, 46%, 37% and 32% of his routes have come from outside during this stretch.

He will be an intriguing player to track this offseason. It will be a plus if he stays on the field in two-wide sets.

Note: Robinson is done for the season (Achilles).

Waiver: Ogunbowale handled every-down duties without any other backs available in the game. Ryquell Armstead will help replace Robinson moving forward, but how the backfield will shake out is anyone's guess. Given how bad the Jaguars' offense is, Ogunbowale is a low-end RB2 even if holds onto his elite utilization. Given that won't likely happen, consider him a high-end RB3.

Rest of season:

  • Robinson: out for season
  • Ogunbowale: low-end RB2 to high-end RB3

Downgrade: Jacobs has lost the passing-down work back to Richard, but his routes haven't fallen much due to the Raiders' ability to avoid LDD situations (14% and 13%) over the last two games. They also didn't use the two-minute offense in Week 16, despite using it the 10th-most on the season (11%). As a result, Jacobs should continue to see most of the rushing work but is now a mid-range RB2 rather than a high-end RB2 option.

Rest of season:

  • Jacobs: mid-range RB2
  • Richard: low-end RB4
  • Barber: upside-stash RB5

Monitoring: Moreau has two top-10 finishes and continues to see elite route participation while Darren Waller is out. He is still only a high-end TE2 option if Waller can't go given his low TPRR in a below-average offense.

Downgrade: The Raiders opted to use more 12 personnel (25%) in a non-trailing script, possibly due to the strength of Denvers' secondary, which pushed Renfrow's routes below 80%. With Renfrow's value again attached to the use of 11 personnel, his weekly floor takes a hit.

Upgrade: With Henderson out at least the next three weeks, Michel's every-down role should be safe.

Waiver/Monitoring: Cam Akers — amazingly — has a chance to play this weekend, according to Sean McVay. The second-year back is six months removed from an Achilles injury, and the Rams need the help with Henderson on IR. Initially, some reported Akers was activated so he could count 2021 towards his pension, but as of now, he is next up if Michel goes down.

It is hard to fathom Akers having much of a role unless injury strikes, but he is worth a pickup if your league championship happens to be on Week 18.

Rest of season:

  • Darrell Henderson: free agent
  • Sony Michel: low-end RB1 while Henderson is out; potentially a high-end RB3 after
  • Cam Akers: stash RB5

Note: Cooper Kupp has four touchdowns on receptions thrown inside the five-yard line — tied for first in the NFL with Davante Adams. The Rams' pass-heavy nature in close is another driver to Kupp's massive success in 2021.

Note: Beckham now has four top-36 finishes in five games since the Rams' bye week. The Rams utilize 11 personnel the most in the NFL (83%), which means Beckham is almost always on the field in passing situations.

Downgrade: The Dolphins are resolute in their commitment to rotate their backfield. On Monday night, Johnson, Gaskin and Lindsay all played a significant percentage of snaps (35%, 31% and 29%, respectively). Johnson and Lindsay each handled 42% of rushing attempts, and Gaskin saw the most routes (47%).

Rest of season:

  • Gaskin: low-end RB3
  • Johnson: low-end RB3 with a chance to be the lead back for Miami (no one knows)
  • Lindsay: low-end RB4

Monitoring: Cook (unvaccinated) was placed on the COVID-19 list last Thursday, so he has a chance to play if he tests negative on Sunday before the game against the Packers. Mattison is an RB1 again against the Packers if Cook doesn't play.

Rest of season:

Waiver/Upgrade: Osborn posted a top-15 finish in Week 16 with Thielen knocked from the game. In games Thielen has missed or left early, Osborn now has WR21, WR17, WR64 and WR15 finishes.

Downgrade: Barkley tumbles further down the ranks, with Booker stealing more routes and the offense tanking. The former No. 1 overall pick is nearing two-down banger territory. There isn't a need for the Giants to push Barkley, and he should prioritize his health in a contract season.

Note: Golladay is the target leader on the team, but his catchable target rate has been atrocious over the last three games at 29%, 43% and 38%.

Monitoring: Toney returned to action but was only in a route on 53% of dropbacks. However, he led the team in TPRR (27%), as he has often done when available. The rookie isn't more than a boom-bust WR4 option in Week 17 but could be the top option for the Giants in 2022 if he can stay healthy.

The Jets remain pass-heavy, but only out of necessity. In Week 16, they trailed by four or more on 0% of plays for the first time all season and ran the ball 56%. This team wants to be run-balanced at heart, and their roster moves will likely support that goal this offseason.

Upgrade: Carter took over 73% of the snaps in Week 16, as the Jets did not involve a third back for the first time in over a month. Coleman will continue to spell the rookie at times on early downs, but Carter appears to have a firm grip on the passing-down work after two encouraging weeks of LDD and two-minute utilization.

Rest of season:

  • Carter: mid-range RB2
  • Coleman: low-end RB4

Note: Sanders is out (IR) due to a broken hand.

Waiver/Upgrade: Scott will likely take over Sanders' role as the lead back in a committee in the run-heavy Eagles attack. If Howard can't go due to his shoulder injury (questionable), Scott has RB1 upside.

Upgrade: Howard becomes a high-end RB3 if his shoulder is well enough to play.

Waiver/Upgrade: Gainwell becomes a mid-range RB3 option if Howard can't play. The Eagles backfield has been tough to decipher outside of being a rotation. Gainwell could see up to half of the work.

Rest of season:

  • Sanders: free agent (IR)
  • Scott: low-end RB2; high-end RB2 if Howard is out
  • Howard: high-end RB3
  • Gainwell: mid-range RB3 if Howard is out

Monitoring: Elijah Mitchell (knee) has a chance to return in Week 17, but Trey Lance could cut into his workload significantly if he returns. Lance creates challenges for the entire running back room.

Rest of season:

  • Mitchell: low-end RB1

Monitoring: Samuel is back on track after 24% and 36% target shares in the passing attack. However, if Lance plays, we could see more rushing and less accuracy in the passing game. Unfortunately, we only have 1.5 games worth of data for the rookie quarterback, making it tough to take a bold stance on his impact.

Upgrade: Penny and Dallas form a two-way committee in the Seahawks backfield. The team's plays per game average is dismal (last by a mile), so this can go wrong in many ways, but both assets are usable.

Rest of season:

  • Pass-volume environment: Good
  • Run-volume environment: Below average
  • Run/pass tendencies: Pass-heavy

The Bucs only dropped back to pass on 52% of plays (season-low). They led by four or more on 84% of plays, but that hasn't stopped them before. Dropback rates in previous games when leading on 70% or more of plays: 67%, 68%, 57%, 56%, 67%, 67%

With Godwin gone for the season and Mike Evans questionable (COVID-19) for Week 17, we could see a slightly more run-oriented offense.

Tampa Bay dropback rates versus the NFL average for the 2021 season:

  • Trailing by four or more: +6%
  • Within three points: +8%
  • Leading by four or more: +10%

Note: Jones handled most of the early-down work, with Vaughn taking over passing downs in the first week without Fournette. Given their depleted passing weaponry, the Bucs could seek to run the ball more as they did in Week 16.

Monitoring: Vaughn came through with a big run, but his utilization is too limited to trust as more than an RB4 option.

Rest of season:

  • Fournette: free agent (IR)
  • Jones: high-end RB2

Note: With Godwin and Evans out, Brown came through with a 50% target share in his first game back.

Monitoring: Johnson's routes didn't climb due to the heavy utilization of 12 personnel (57%), with Tampa leading by four or more points on 84% of plays. He could become more involved in a closer game script.

Monitoring: Grayson took over on the outside, but Breshad Perriman will be back for Week 17, making the outside receiver situation murky if Evans (COVID-19) can't go.
