Jump to another recap:



Monitor Evan Engram’s health: Engram suffered a back injury in the third quarter. He returned to the game but played just two snaps in the fourth quarter.

  • Engram caught only one pass for eight yards over the course of the game despite having his usual role before the initial injury.
  • Dan Arnold took over as the primary receiving tight end. 
  • The Jaguars were mostly running the ball in the fourth quarter to preserve their lead, but Arnold would likely see the exact same role Engram has had all season if Engram misses time.
  • The Jaguars have an OK matchup against the Chiefs next week, where there will be plenty of opportunity for volume. They have a bye week after that.
  • Arnold could be a waiver wire target specifically for next week or if the Engram injury is serious. This would largely be in deeper leagues, regardless.
  • Arnold has a higher PFF receiving grade over the past two seasons than Engram, largely based on his work as the Jaguars’ starter last year, so this could be an upgrade.

Sell high on Davante Adams: Adams took advantage of the second-best matchup for a wide receiver this week against the Jaguars. Still, he’s been hot and cold this season and could have more poor performances ahead.

  • Adams has five games this season with 95 or more receiving yards and three games with 36 or fewer.
  • His target share will likely decline slightly once Darren Waller is healthy. Waller hasn’t caught a pass in over a month due to a hamstring injury.
  • He was limited in practice all week, which is a good sign he could be back sooner rather than later.
  • The Raiders are in the bottom half of the league in terms of matchups for their wide receivers and their schedule difficulty.

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.
