Greg Olsen back among the top 3 fantasy TEs

Welcome to the Week 4 edition of PPO Potpourri, where we look at the previous week’s fantasy points per opportunity (PPO) data to find the players that made the most of their opportunities and go over how you can use that data to win in Week 4.

This article will list the top 10 players in terms of last week’s PPO from the wide receiver, running back and tight end positions. It’ll also dig a little deeper to find some players worth knowing that weren’t in the top 10.

We’ll also take a look at season-to-date PPO data to find the players that have been performing at a high level on a consistent basis.

An opportunity is defined as Carries+Routes Run, so PPO is Fantasy Points/(Carries+Routes). In order to qualify for the top 10, a player must have been in the game on at least 25 percent of the number of snaps the snap count leader at their respective position took each week. For example, if we were both wide receivers and you took 100 snaps and I took 24, I would not qualify for the list. This data is for points-per-reception (PPR) leagues.
