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.

Jump to another recap:



Add Chuba Hubbard: Hubbard was inactive with an ankle injury, but this game illustrated how large of a role he can have once healthy.

  • D’Onta Foreman started the game but was not used in passing situations. This is a role Hubbard will fill once he’s back.
  • Foreman was the clear player on early downs to start the game but didn’t play as much in the second half, as the Panthers were playing from behind.
  • Foreman is the player to start in Carolina if the team is expected to win, but Hubbard will be the better fantasy asset while they are playing from behind.

Add Terrace Marshall Jr.: Marshall gained over 50 receiving yards in his second straight game and scored the first touchdown of his career.

  • He should remain a clear starter for Carolina over the rest of the season.
  • He’s still only 22 years old after a rookie season to forget. At his age, he can be treated like any other rookie to gamble on breaking out over the second half of the season.
  • The Panthers have a top-10 schedule for fantasy wide receivers both over the rest of the season and during the fantasy playoffs.

Monitor Chris Evans’ health: Evans hurt his right left on the opening kickoff. He attempted one offensive play later in the first quarter but went back to the medical tent and didn’t return.

  • He’s rarely been involved in the offense this season, but he did catch a 26-yard pass on one of his two offensive snaps last week.
  • This game would have been a perfect opportunity to get him some garbage time touches.
  • Backup running back Samaje Perine also went to the medical tent in the first half, but he returned to the game.
  • If the Evans injury is serious, then it makes Joe Mixon an ever-so-slightly safer option, as he’s less likely to lose snaps in garbage time.

Ignore the Bengals' snap counts: The Bengals had a blowout victory, which led to their backups playing a third of the game.

  • Cincinnati has been one of the most consistent teams for years in how it uses its players. Today was the exception due to garbage time.
  • All of the Bengals’ usual fantasy starters are safe options going forward.

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.
