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.

New York Jets @ Green Bay Packers

Monitor Randall Cobb's health: The veteran receiver suffered an ankle injury early in the third quarter and didn’t return.

  • Amari Rodgers took over in the second half, but he likely won't be the long-term replacement if Cobb misses time.
  • Sammy Watkins has spent the last four weeks on injured reserve and is eligible to return next week.
  • Christian Watson missed this game with a hamstring injury, but he also could be back soon.
  • Behind Cobb, Watson is second on the team in the percentage of snaps from the slot. He should benefit the most, but every receiver will now play some time in the slot.
  • The second-round rookie’s 21.1% target percentage is the highest among the Packers' top five wide receivers.
  • Watson is worth a waiver wire add if the Cobb injury is serious.

Sell high on Robert Tonyan: The Packers tight end caught 10 passes for 90 yards in his best game of the season, but a lot went “right” for Tonyan to put up those numbers.

  • Tonyan plays a lot in 11 personnel and not much in other personnel groupings, which remained true for this game.
  • The Packers ran a lot more plays in 11 personnel than usual, as they were playing from behind in the second half.
  • Green Bay was down three of their top five wide receivers by the end of this game, which increased the odds of Tonyan getting targeted.
  • The Packers didn’t get their running backs as involved as many expected, which also meant more targets for the tight end.
  • He will have a few more games this season as a starting fantasy tight end, but we will also have plenty of games where he is barely involved while the run-blocking tight ends take the snaps.

Cut Elijah Moore: The Jets wide receiver wasn’t targeted and lost playing time to Braxton Berrios.

  • Moore played 16-of-22 snaps in 11 personnel, mostly losing snaps to Berrios.
  • With the team in 11 personnel, Garrett Wilson had typically been the player to leave the game in favor of Berrios.
  • Moore also typically played in 21 personnel, but Berrios took all eight snaps from that personnel group, with Corey Davis or Wilson as the other receiver.
  • This is typically a run formation, but the Jets ran three pass plays from that group today.
  • His 12.2% target rate is the fourth-lowest among the Jets' top four wide receivers.

Cut Tyler Conklin: The Jets tight end lost significant playing time to C.J. Uzomah for a second straight week.

  • He ran a route on only 12 of the Jets' 21 pass plays. 
  • He’s only seen three targets over the last two weeks.
  • Conklin’s value over the first four weeks was entirely volume despite a low efficiency, and now he doesn’t have the volume anymore.

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.
