The Fantasy Football Utilization Report: Week 11 dropout, trade and drop graduates | Fantasy Football News, Rankings and Projections

Volume is king fantasy football, and this report will help you understand which players are to be paid more or less according to their roles. It’s a great way to know who’s overperforming (selling high) and underperforming (buying low) based on historical data related to metrics as we know drive volume.

  • Total offense: Which teams enable winning volume and efficiency across game scripts
  • Quarterbacks: How involved is each quarterback in the running game and who unlocks their weapons
  • Running backs: Which backs handle early downs, short-yardage and pass downs
  • Sealed ends: Who runs enough routes and meets critical goals per. route thresholds
  • Recipients: Which recipients are in most routes and operate widely within the offense

WEEK 10 Takeaways

Waiver line

QB Cam Newton was to take over as the starter in Week 11. He provides the rapid upside we are looking for and gets a significant weapon upgrade compared to his time in New England last season. FAB: 5-10%

RB AJ Dillon will play an almost every-down role, while Aaron Jones recovers from a mild MCL sprain. Expect Dillon to see 75% of rushing attempts and 5-10% of goals as a low-end RB1. FAB: 50% +

RB Wayne Gallman shared work with Mike Davis after Cordarrelle Patterson left the game (high ankle sprain). He managed 80% of the urgent attempts, while Davis saw more passing work. FAB: 2-5%

WR Tre’Quan Smith has two top-36 finishes in the last three matches and leads the team on routes over the last two competitions. FAB: 2-5%

TE Gerald Everett has overtaken Will Dissly and is the primary tight-end in Seattle. FAB: 2-5%

– See proposals for re-issuance of exemption below under each team: Justin Fields, Elijah Moore, Michael Gallup, from Jefferson, Mark Ingram II, Rhamondre Stevenson, Jeff Wilson Jr.

Sell ​​high

RB Joe Mixon (re-release) has three top-five rankings in his last four games and ranks as RB4, but his underlying utilization and efficiency indicate that he is most likely a touchdown-dependent high-end RB2.

Buy low

RB Miles Sanders is a speculative buy-low at an RB3 price thanks to the Eagles’ newfound dedication to the race. At worst, he is in a selection and corresponds to his previous production due to the larger effervescent pie. At best, he regains an almost every-down role to give above expected returns.

TE Mike Gesicki‘s utilization remains elite despite the recent two boxing score duds. He is a top-six tight end with an overall number 1 upside every week.

Upgrades

RB Mark Ingram II is in an all-down role as long as Alvin Kamara is out. He is a high-end RB2.

WR DeVonta Smith is becoming a target funnel for Jalen Hurts, and his underlying WR2 utilization has shone through over the past two weeks. Delivery volume has dropped in Philadelphia, but efficiency is up for the rookie. He is a high-end WR3.

WR Keenan Allen has three consecutive 30% -plus-target-share games. This was only a matter of time. He is approaching WR1 status.

TE Dan Arnold is Trevor Lawrence’s favorite goal, topping a goal percentage of 20% in consecutive games. His utilization is close to the elite route (80%) and TPRR (20%) thresholds we covet. He is a low-end TE1 who could push higher.

Downgrades

QB Jalen hurts has on average almost 100 fewer yards per. games that pass over the last three competitions. He remains the second most involved quarterback in design-rushing attempts, but the big pass top is gone. He is a low-end QB1.

Trend: Conner consolidated his “ever-down” status with Chase Edmonds out of line, handling 84% of the snaps and most SDD and LDD work.

The rest of the season:

  • Edmonds: low-end RB2 on return
  • Conner: low-end RB1 while Edmonds is out; touchdown-dependent low-end RB2 after
  • Benjamin: save RB5 while Edmonds is out

YTD 28% 20% 7% 6.5 5% 5% 18% 42% 11

Sales height / monitoring: Ertz obscured the 80% route barrier for the second game, but 66% of his routes came from castle. That may change when Hopkins returns, given how often Kirk also operates from within. In addition, Ertz is rarely open to one-man coverage (27%), while Kirk is number two on the team behind Hopkins with 40%, and Kirk leads the team in open rate versus press-one-man coverage (44%).

The rest of the season:

  • Hopkins: low-end WR1
  • Kirk: bom-bust WR3
  • Green: low-end WR3
  • Moore: stash WR5
  • Edge: advanced TE2
