Insights & Analysis:
“Justin Jefferson has the 5th most receiving yards through a WRs first 9 career games of all time. Every other player in the top 10 had at least 70 targets to get there. Justin Jefferson has only 54 targets. He is having one of the best rookie WR seasons ever.”
“Salvon Ahmed saw 84% of Miami's running back rushes today. Myles Gaskin's season high in running back rush share is 81.8%.”
Twitter thread making the case to acquire more shares of Clyde Edwards-Helaire in Dynasty.
“Most receiving yards per game by a rookie WR all-time: 1. Odell Beckham (108.8) 2. Anquan Boldin (86.1) 3. Randy Moss (82.1) 4. Justin Jefferson (78.4) 5. Michael Thomas (75.8) 6. Tee Higgins (75.4) !!!” (JJ’s numbers were before MNF)
“Justin Herbert has the most fantasy points of all time for a QB through 7 career starts.”
Something to keep in mind when considering RB combine metrics — speed is definitely overrated: “Speed Score Percentile of 2020s Top Fantasy RBs: 1. 59th% 2. 73rd% 3. 97th% 4. 42nd% 5. 94th% 6. - 7. 47th% 8. 48th% 9. 35th% 10. 31st% 11. 43rd% 12. 62nd% Avg %ile: 57.3”
“Patrick Mahomes is averaging a career-high 26.5 fantasy points/game.”
“Really unlucky runout for Miles Sanders yesterday. Handled 72% of the snaps and 77% of the RB touches. But Boston Scott had a 1 TD on 4 touches and Corey Clement had 1 TD on 1 touch.”
Don’t look now, but Rams WR Josh Reynolds might be a thing: “Rams WR usage over their last three games: * Josh Reynolds - 123 routes / 29 targets * Cooper Kupp - 122 routes / 33 targets * Robert Woods - 122 routes / 19 targets”
James Robinson continues to shine as a rookie UDFA. Something that won’t show up in the box score is 2 touchdowns that were called back on holding penalties. One was a pretty bad call. Here’s a great film breakdown on James Robinson’s season.
“Through 9 weeks, the 2020 rookie class has scored more fantasy points than any rookie class over the past 20 years.”
“Over the past two weeks, Davante Adams is the WR1 & MVS is WR3.”
Sliver of hope for Dynasty managers rostering Jonathan Taylor under all the dark clouds: “Jonathan Taylor, through last night: 113 carries, 428 rush yards, 4 TD Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines combined: 113 carries, 427 rush yards, 3 TD Taylor has also caught 96% of targets for a strong 9.2 yards per reception. To be clear, I’m not arguing JT hasn’t been a fantasy disappointment. He clearly has been. Just think it’s worth considering perception of how bad he’s been, esp in relation to his teammates.”
Bruce Arians sounds like he’s giving Ronald Jones a longer leash and believes in him. Reiterates that Jones is “Their guy.”
“Through 9 weeks, Michael Thomas has not yet scored as many total fantasy points as his average points per game in 2019”
“Travis Fulgham's target shares over his last five games: 36.1%, 26.3%, 26.8%, 26.9%, 13.9%”
