In week 5 a total of 787 points were scored. The result is 52.47 per game. That’s quite a bit; only three scheduled games have had an over / under over 54.
Still, there seemed to be a lot of complaints about how week 4 went for Fantasy. Injuries didn’t help, of course – Nick Chubb and Austin Ekeler were sidelined in the first half of their games and certainly cost a lot of players, also leaving potential multi-week holes in their lineups – but it’s not like it’s a week Scene in 3 styles. And, for the most part, the leaders in the Fantasy score were also Fantasy-relevant names, which is always welcome.
However, there were some high-profile busts, which always hurt. Darrell Henderson (our Start of the week for week 4) was the main among them, but we didn̵
Let’s dive into each Week Four game so far to see who helped their Fantasy title, who might have damaged it, and what you might have missed while looking at your Fantasy board.
Broncos 37-Jets 28
The Broncos came out on top, but it cost them because they lost two other contributors to the injury.
- Winner: Tim Patrick. Patrick was actually the go-to catcher for the Broncos in this one, receiving six passes for 113 yards and a touchdown as he led the team into targets with seven. Patrick has had flashes in the past, and at six foot eight and four with a 4.52 40, he has size and speed as well as a pretty good college production profile, but he’ll have to do it a couple more times before buying into the.
- Losers: Everyone on the Jets except Jamison Crowder. It’s true that the Jets have problems beyond training, but it’s also true that until the coaches change, there won’t be much to get excited about here. Le’Veon Bell may be back in week 5, but even then we can’t trust this team to get the most out of him. Crowder seems like a must to start, and Bell should be in discussion RB # 1. 2 when it’s healthy, but beyond that you can just ignore this team until things get better A lot better.
- One thing you may have missed: Jerry Jeudy’s 61-yard line and scoring was more impressive than it looks, given the degree of difficulty on his long touchdown catch. However, the fact that he needed to make a circus catch to avoid a one-off match shows just how risky it is for Fantasy, at least until Drew Lock returns and proves he has a relationship with the rookie.
- Number to know: Patrick had been involved in the offense more than his numbers could have made it seem: he entered week 4 with three interference passes drawn to lead the NFL.
Seahawks 31-Dolphins 23
Even in an unusually quiet game from his big receivers, Russell Wilson had another good Fantasy performance.
- Winner: DeVante Parker. I’ve talked about Parker every week in this column, apparently, so it was nice to see him finally put together a great match, taking 10 out of 12 passes for 110 yards, and he did it all despite briefly walking away in the first half with an injury to the ankle. Parker has 24 tricks for 279 yards with a touchdown in four games despite having a slow start due to a hamstring injury, and has 86 tricks for 1,280 yards and nine touchdowns in his last 16 games. He’s a stud, and even with a tough schedule coming up – @SF, @DEN, v LAC, v LAR – you probably can’t get him to sit down. He has done consistently well against the best corners over the past year.
- Loser: Mike Gesicki. We were hoping that Week 2 would be Gesicki’s successful match, but he followed his game of eight tricks and 130 yards with a single catch for 15 yards in each of his last two. Gesicki only has three targets in each game in that trait and cannot be seen as a reliable early Fantasy option at this point. Put it in the “Hope for a touchdown” stack of options until it proves it doesn’t belong.
- One thing you may have missed: This could have been an even bigger game for Wilson, but he was eliminated in the end zone in one drive and then DK Metcalf was tackled at the 1-yard line on another. He will have to settle only 16 touchdowns in four games.
- Number to know: Chris Carson played 35 shots despite coming out of a knee injury and briefly walking away after a headshot in the second quarter. In the absence of Carlos Hyde, Travis Homer played 17 shots and DeeJay Dallas played 11. Hyde may waste more time moving forward, but there’s no obvious option in case something happens to Carson.
Bengals 33-Jaguars 25
Joe Mixon made up for lost time with a three touchdown match while dominating this one.
- Injuries: Laviska Shenault Jr. (Hamstring) – Shenault came out at the end of the fourth quarter after another solid match, so we’ll keep our eyes peeled for that. It’s a solid opt-out option if healthy.
- Winner: Mixon. 25 carries for 151 yards and two scores and six catches for 30 yards and a touchdown. And were you worried? Look, Mixon’s going to go through periods where he didn’t put up huge numbers in this offense; that’s how things went for him during his career, and it’s just the norm for a team that doesn’t create many scoring opportunities and often plays from behind. But it has a huge touch floor – at least 19 in each game – and the explosive matches will be huge. He is also on pace for 53 receptions, which would be a career high.
- Loser: A.J. Green. Yes, we’re done here. I’m not saying him I can not be a useful Fantasy option ever again, but I see no reason to think it needs to be placed in a regular 12-team Fantasy league right now. At least in the first two games, he was hitting a lot of goals, but now he only has 11 in his last two combo. Green has 14 catches for just 119 yards across 33 targets and was one of the NFL’s worst wide catchers during the first quarter of the season. His 3.61 yards per target is the second worst for any player with at least 33 targets in his team’s first four games since targets began tracking in 1992.
- One thing you may have missed: Joe Burrow could and probably should have made an even bigger match, but he had a touchdown on the second drive nullified by an attendance penalty, had nearly touchdowns from both Tee Higgins and Drew Sample that they couldn’t hold on to, and also he had a wiretap that was just removed from Sample’s arms in the end zone. It’s hard to complain about anything Burrow did as a rookie, because you probably don’t want to trust him in week 5 against the Ravens.
- Number to know: Joe Mixon ran 24 courses and was targeted six times, compared to just five goalsless courses for Giovani Bernard. It was probably more about the Bangladeshi being in the lead for once, but as with its overall role, it’s something to watch.
Vikings 31-Texans 23
The Vikings got their ideal result, as Dalvin Cook, Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson all went over 100 yards.
- Injuries: Jordan Akins (Concussion) – Impossible to return.
- Winner: Will Fuller. There was another injury scare when Fuller wasted time this week in training with a hamstring injury, but came out and put together another big game – six takes for 108 yards and a touchdown this time. Fuller has at least 15.4 PPR points in three of the four games, with the one exception being that odd Week 2 where he wasn’t targeted at all and seemed to be dealing with some sort of unconfirmed injury.
- Loser: Brandin Cooks. I thought Cooks could get the season back, but basically he was invisible when Fuller was on the pitch. His only fantasy-relevant performance came in that week 2, and he only has 43 yards across 13 targets in the other three games. You can leave it at this point.
- One thing you may have missed: Fuller’s big game could have been a huge one, and it was almost. He was given a touchdown on an incredible contested hold at the end of the fourth quarter on the fourth down, just for the replay to prove he didn’t come down with it.
- Number to know: Justin Jefferson had over 20 yards on each of his catches and averaged 17.6 yards per target. This Viking passing game is built around deep shots during gameplay, so Jefferson and Adam Thielen will both have the opportunity to make great plays.
Browns 49-Cowboys 38
Yes, that score is real. The Browns became the seventh team in the past decade to run over 300 yards in one game, and Nick Chubb missed the entire second half.
- Injuries: Nick Chubb (knee) – He has an MCL injury that will likely cost him six weeks. Kareem Hunt will be number one back here, and he’s in the top five for Fantasy until Chubb is out. D’Ernest Johnson will be a top priority as a potential flexible option. Johns led the team with 13 carries for 95 yards on Sunday.
- Winner: Odell Beckham. Beckham helped put the Browns in a position where they could just pass the ball over and over, as he got behind the defense on Jarvis Landry’s 37-yard pass – yes – on the team’s first drive. He found the end zone again two drives later for a 4-yard score, and then helped to freeze the game with a 50-yard run on a backhand that was nearly blown up in the backfield. Beckham doesn’t get force-fed targets like he did with the Giants, but he has scored 214 yards out of 20 targets in his last three games and simply looks more dynamic than last year. Check out the replay of that long rehearsal touchdown run, because it’s something we haven’t seen him do in a while:
- Loser: Michael Gallup. I still think there’s enough room for Gallup and CeeDee Lamb to thrive in this offense, but it’s getting harder and harder to argue this case now that Gallup has seen five or fewer targets in three of the four games. He had a huge performance in week 3, but other than that it hasn’t hit double digits in a PPR championship. With Amari Cooper earning 51 goals in four games and Lamb, Dalton Schultz and Ezekiel Elliot all seeing five goals each week, Gallup gets crushed. Its role as a primary deep option makes it inconsistent, but the bright side is there every week.
- One thing you may have missed: In what is becoming a recurring theme for the Cowboys, the game activated some units where they couldn’t stick to the ball. Dak Prescott’s fumble led to a Browns touchdown, and Ezekiel Elliott’s on the next drive led to another and there’s your final edge. The Cowboys have seven fumbles in four games, having only fumbled 15 times in 16 games a year ago.
- Number to know: Michael Gallup led the Cowboys on the run despite only seeing five targets. If you are looking for a silver lining, it is that Gallup remains the main deep threat to this attack, which means that it will have the possibility of huge matches every week – it had 16.8 yards per target. It might be worth buying.
Ravens 31-Washington 17
Even in a game they’ve won comfortably, no one on the Ravens got more than nine carries.
- Winner: Antonio Gibson. The race was supposed to be the hardest part, but Gibson was the team’s main supporter in every game except the opening one. The limited role in the passing game was the surprise, but we’re starting to see that change, as he had five targets, four holds, and 82 yards. His 17 touches on Sunday were his highest after just 12 the week before, and you have to think that more than 15 will become the norm going forward. Gibson looks solid RB2 with quarter turn upside.
- Loser: Mark Ingram. I thought this was going to be an Ingram game, and the game actually went as I expected. Except, he finished with just eight runs, one less than Gus Edwards. He has been between seven and ten years in every game, with Edwards and J.K. Dobbins mixing constantly, and I don’t see how you can see Ingram as anything more than a touchdown-dependent low-end flex option at this point.
- One thing you may have missed: Gibson had a 40-yard catch in the first half of driving, showing his big play prowess, but was pulled on the goal line for Peyton Barber, a nightmare scenario. Except, Barber was embalmed for a 1-yard loss and Gibson returned the next game to get the touchdown. Gibson got three retrieves inside the 5-yard line in this game after only two in the first two, and hopefully they are done giving Barber that role.
- Number to know: Ravens RB snaps – Gus Edwards (22), J.K. Dobbins (21), Mark Ingram (14). This was the one where the Ravens came up with starters early, but that continues to worry the trend for using Ingram. I’m just not sure how you can trust him at this point.
Saints 35-Lions 29
The Lions got another double-digit advantage, and the Saints almost did the same.
- Winner: Drew Brees. I admit, I was ready to call him on Brees. I also left it for Gardner Minshew when Michael Thomas went down in week 2. I was feeling pretty good about it in week 2, but the Saints figured out how to get him comfortable with lots of short passes to Alvin Kamara in space in week 3 , and Brees just looked great on Sunday without Thomas or Jared Cook. Now he’ll likely get Thomas back in week five against a Chargers team that was destroyed without Chris Harris on Sunday and also has Emmanuel Sanders and Tre’Quan Smith playing. The only problem? Not sure it’s a must for goodbye in week 6.
- Loser: Marvin Jones. Jones has been one of my mid-round favorites this draft season, but so far he’s been a total failure and the return of Kenny Golladay hasn’t improved his life. He will have some big games, but with only five goals in Golladay’s two games, Jones is dropping with Detroit’s farewell in week 5. Although the upcoming schedule – Jaguars and Falcons in weeks 6 and 7 – makes it a little more difficult. pull the trigger.
- One thing you may have missed: It was disappointing to see T.J. Hockenson only has 9 yards on his four targets, but the Lions made a point of targeting him in important situations – he had two end zone targets, he had one, and even had a two-point conversation. Matthew Stafford pitched to 11 different players, including multiples of eight, so you’d like to see them consolidate goals and engage Hockenson more. He earned it.
- Number to know: Alvin Kamara averaged 9.3 air yards per target, a healthy sign for a running back. This was a disappointing match as Kamara only took three balls and saw Latavius Murray score twice, but he’s still a unique off-pitch weapon making him an elite option even when Murray is present.
Panthers 31-Cardinals 21
Cardinals’ passing game should have been explosive, but it continues to be anything but, even in a game where they needed more.
- Injuries: Kenyan Drake (Undisclosed) – Drake took a hard hit on the final puck and lay on the ground for a few moments before being helped on the sidelines. It’s unclear what exactly happened, but we’ll have to keep an eye on him over the next few days, as Chase Edmonds would obviously be a player to add if Drake gets it wrong at any point.
- Winner: Robby Anderson. I’m not at all ready to give up on D.J. Moore, but we have to accept what’s clearly evident: Anderson is the go-to guy in this offense. It was exactly what we expected Moore to be, in fact, lining up all over the pitch and walking the entire tree of ways, while Moore was actually more of the deep type. I’m still starting Moore down the line, especially in week 5 against the Falcons, but Anderson is the best option right now.
- Loser: Non-DeAndre Hopkins receivers in Arizona crime. In a game where Hopkins had injured his ankle, the Cardinals still gave him nine targets out of 31 passing attempts. This is despite the fact that he only had 41 yards on his seven tricks. This was an opportunity for someone – anyone! – take a step forward, and no one has. Christian Kirk was returning from his own groin injury and may not have been at full speed, but it seems almost the only hope here. What was expected to be a high-powered passing game turned into something of a disaster, with Murray averaging 6.4 yards per attempt, including only 5.07 to all non-Hopkins receivers.
- One thing you may have missed: The Panthers were missing two early offensive linemen and the Cardinals managed zero layoffs. Some thought this might be a better defense than the Cardinals, but this was a step backwards. The schedule remains very light with the Jets arriving in week 5, but then it’s the Cowboys and Seahawks who may be exhibiting them. The offense may need to be more aggressive in the future.
- Number to know: D.J. Moore only saw six targets in week 4, and unlike in previous games, Teddy Bridgewater wasn’t looking deeply into this one, which helps explain the lackluster show. If Moore is going to be the # 2 option in the passing game, he needs more of those deep goals or he’ll continue to disappoint.
Buccaneers 38-Chargers 31
After a rough start, Tom Brady put together a vintage performance in the second half for the win.
- Injuries: Austin Ekeler (Hamstring / knee) – Did not return and was seen on crutches after the game. You’ll likely miss multiple games with a hamstring injury and possible knee hyperextension – and hopefully that’s all it is. … LeSean McCoy (ankle) – He’s not back. … O.J. Howard (Achilles) – Howard’s season is probably over due to a broken Achilles. If Rob Gronkowski can’t get on with Howard and Chris Godwin outside, he never will.
- Winner: Mike Evans. Of course, I was worried about Evans getting into this game, because his target quota was very low and he saw far fewer targets on the ground than he was used to. In week four, Brady showed he was willing to throw the ball deep, especially when he started picking up the pace in the second half, and that’s a great sign. You’d probably still prefer to see more than eight targets out of 46 attempts – that’s a 17.4% goal, just a tick from his season score coming into play and well south of where Evans has historically lived, especially with Chris Godwin out. But if there are big shows, it won’t really matter.
- Loser: Leonard Fournette. Ronald Jones wasn’t great in passing play in this one, with three drops, but that wasn’t exactly where we feared Fournette would really push him. And Jones performed very well otherwise, racking up 111 yards out of 20 carries to finish with 128 total yards. Jones’s nine targets were at least somehow the result of McCoy’s absence, but the fact is, he probably wasted no time playing going forward, and that’s bad news for Fournette.
- One thing you may have missed: Evans’ production was even better when he remembers that he walked off the pitch limping in the first quarter with a foot or ankle injury and went into the locker room. You could see him favoring him and running below full speed at various points, which could explain why he had no more targets.
- Number to know: 40% of Justin Herbert’s attempts in week four were behind the scrimmage line, the highest scoring in football. It will be interesting to see what happens with Ekeler out, because if Jackson or Kelley can step up in the passing game, it will be a super valuable role.
Rams 17-Giants 9
The Rams were not supposed to deviate from their conservative game plan, so they didn’t.
- Winner: Devonta Freeman. Such are the meager joys in this. Freeman finished with 68 yards, 11 carries for 33 yards and four catches for 35. Wayne Gallman has been more productive in the running game, but has only played 10 snaps and isn’t a real threat. Freeman played 37 shots and ran 22 routes until Dion Lewis’ 4pm, so at least for this week he was the benchmark. It will likely stay that way, although it’s hard to see Freeman as anything more than a flexible option in this attack.
- Loser: Darrell Henderson. Yikes. Malcolm Brown had 14 touches to Henderson’s nine and surpassed him by 35 to 22. Not great for a guy who we thought had taken the initial job to do it last week. The Rams clearly trust Brown more in passing situations, and they’re not just handing Henderson all the carries, which leaves him in the small side of a platoon that could add a third participant when Cam Akers is healthy. The good news is week 5 against Washington should have a lot of chances for Henderson, but you’re seeing both of them as more like the # running backs. 2 low-end.
- One thing you may have missed: 22.9% of Rams yards came on a Cooper Kupp catch and run, with an emphasis on running. The Rams simply do not throw the ball onto the court, as they made running play and short pass play their focus in the beginning. It probably won’t change in week 5, and frankly, they may not need to be super aggressive until week 9 against the Seahawks – they have the 49ers, Bears and Dolphins after Washington.
- Number to know: Malcolm Brown had 35 shots while Darrell Henderson was only 22. Clearly, the Rams trust Brown in passing situations more than anyone else, and that has been clear all season. The surprising thing is that Henderson has seen even less carry than Brown. With Cam Akers returning to the end, it’s hard to see anyone here as anything more than a flexible option.
Bills 30-Raiders 23
Josh Allen couldn’t do four 300-yard games in a row, but he was still a dominant force in this one.
- Winner: Josh Allen. Add three more touchdowns to Allens’ ledger. They didn’t need him to throw the ball into the air more than 40 times this week, but he remained efficient, fielding 8.5 yards per attempt with two touchdown passersby and no dribble. It has a wide receiver No. 1 legitimate in Stefon Diggs and doesn’t even need the game running in this one. The only downside is that the Bills Week 5 game is currently at least somewhat under discussion due to the ongoing COVID outbreak on Titans.
- Loser: Josh Jacobs. Jacobs has 34.9 PPR points in his last three games, after having 35.9 in Week 1. So, it’s time to panic, right? No not at all. He has had at least three tricks in every game so far and has a pace of 1,200 yards. Jacobs hasn’t had a big game as a rusher yet, but the volume will always be there, and the passing game role gives him a word he didn’t have as a rookie. If someone starts panicking about Jacobs, go for a low buy offer. You will not regret. It’s in the same spot where Mixon was entering this game.
- One thing you may have missed: The only thing that might be able to slow Allen down right now is the injury, and he avoided a scare in week four when he went to the locker room with a wrist injury but was able to return without missing a snap.
- Number to know: Josh Allen had the second shallowest airfield per attempt in the championship and still managed to make a great game with just 34 attempts. Allen has taken a step forward, but he also has a much improved weapon set around him that can make great plays even without him making big hits.
Colts 19-Bears 11
It turned out that Nick Foles was not the answer to everything that plagues the Bears offense.
- Winner: Allen Robinson. Foles was good for Robinson, at least. Sure, it was almost all in junk time – he had five catches for 69 yards on Bears’ last-minute drive to cut the score to eight – but you’ll get it. If nothing else, the fact that Foles is more likely to throw the ball when under pressure than Mitchell Trubisky, who will tuck it in and run from time to time, is good news for Bears’ pass-pickers, even if it’s unlikely. that Foles greatly elevates the attack. In any case, Robinson is a WR not to be missed.
- Loser: T.Y. Hilton. I still want to find reasons to be optimistic, but the results are what they are. Hilton is still making its impact felt, drawing another interference on the pass, but the overall volume of Colts’ pass has decreased and they’re not exactly peppering him with targets. I’d rather not abandon Hilton, but it’s hard to argue with just 13 goals in the last three games.
- One thing you may have missed: The Bears got Cordarrelle Patterson to carry on their third offensive game and then targeted him in the next game, but he only had two targets and three carries while playing 10 offensive shots in total. David Montgomery played 52 shots, and although he only had 10 carries, he earned six seasonal goals. If that’s Patterson’s role moving forward, Montgomery will be in the top 15 in the volume alone.
- Number to know: David Montgomery played 86% of the Bears’ shots and earned six goals in Week 4, both of which are record numbers. Without Tarik Cohen, Montgomery should play a major role for the rest of the season.
Eagles 25-49 years 20
The short-handed 49ers only made a few more mistakes than the short-handed Eagles.
- Winner: George Kittle. Kittle made up for lost time on Sunday, racking up 15 catches for 183 yards and a touchdown on his return from a two-game absence. He now has 227 yards in reception and will likely finish week four in fourth place in the yard reception standings for the season, in the competitive half of games. It felt like it took him an extra week to get back to full capacity, and the wait was worth it.
- Loser: Zach Ertz. Ertz has as many receptions as Kittle does with 88 yards less. After his four tricks, with 9 yards shown on Sunday, he dropped to an average of 7.3 yards per catch; it was at 10.4 last season and has never been below 10.0. If you’re looking for a reason to be optimistic, he went through a similar period at the end of the 2018 season, averaging 8.0 yards per catch over 23 catches over a four-game span, and then had 18 catches for 192 yards and a touchdown in his next three games in the playoffs. It’s a bad shot, but the goals are probably not going anywhere, and as long as that’s the case, you can’t sit him down, even with two tough comparisons in the next two games.
- One thing you may have missed: Kendrick Bourne was awarded a 3-yard touchdown on 2nd and a goal in the fourth quarter, but the review showed he was just below the goal line. This allowed Jerick McKinnon the chance to complete the 12-game drive with a touchdown, giving him one in every game so far. He finished with 54 yards on 14 carries plus seven catches for 43 yards on nine targets as he dominated touches off the 49ers’ backfield. It will be really interesting to see what his role will be like if Raheem Mostert returns in week 5 – I expect McKinnon to have earned a dozen touches every week no matter what.
- Number to know: Jerick McKinnon played 66 shots, while Jeff Wilson played only six. McKinnon won’t stay ahead when Raheem Mostert is healthy enough to play, but he’s more than proven to handle a significant role and won’t walk away as long as he can stay healthy.
Chiefs 26-Patriots 10
The Chiefs didn’t need to do much up front, as the Patriots’ offense mostly crackled without Cam Newton.
- Winner: Damien Harris. Harris made his season debut and proved to be worth the wait, running 100 yards on 17 carries, including a long 41-yard run. He wasn’t involved in the passing game, and with White and Burkhead still playing significant roles, he probably won’t change. But we know the Patriots want to run the ball no matter who is under the center, and if Harris is the lead option on the pitch, he will have a lot of work.
- Loser: Julian Edelman. Without Newton, Edelman drew with N’Keal Harry for third place on the team in goals with just six. He took three for 35 yards and has only 58 yards in the last two games. Quando Newton sarà autorizzato a tornare, Edelman dovrebbe trarne beneficio, ma questo reato probabilmente non sarà abbastanza buono perché Edelman possa essere un’utile opzione Fantasy senza di lui.
- Una cosa che potresti aver perso: L’offesa dei Patriots sarà probabilmente quella che prendi di mira quando cerchi lo streaming dell’ora legale con Newton fuori, ma i Chiefs sono stati un po ‘fortunati in questo – Di Tyrann Mathieu pick-six è stato colto dalla deviazione da una rara caduta di Edelman.
Packers 30-Falcons 16
Niente Davante Adams? No Allen Lazard? Nessun problema per Aaron Rodgers? Per quanto riguarda Matt Ryan, beh … alcuni problemi.
- Vincitori: Robert Tonyan. Sono tre partite di fila con un touchdown per Tonyan, che ha segnato tre gol lunedì sera. Aveva ancora il suo gioco più completo, portando in sei passaggi su altrettanti bersagli per 98 yard per andare insieme ai tre punteggi. Il grande yardage e il massimo stagionale negli obiettivi sono stati probabilmente il risultato dell’assenza di Davante Adams e Allen Lazard, ma Tonyan ha la fiducia di Rodgers nella zona rossa, e questa è una buona cosa da avere. Anche quando Adams ritorna, Tonyan dovrebbe essere terzo o quarto in linea per gli obiettivi, rendendolo un valido tight end iniziale. Dopotutto, se devi sperare in un touchdown da qualcuno, il ragazzo che cattura i passaggi da Rodgers è una buona opzione. L’unico problema? I Packers sono in arrivo nella settimana 5.
- Perdenti: Matt Ryan. Certo, Julio Jones non ha giocato la seconda metà e Calvin Ridley chiaramente non era al 100%, ma Ryan semplicemente non stava benissimo in questo, e questa è stata una tendenza per la maggior parte della stagione finora. Starà meglio quando le sue armi migliori saranno sane, ma Ryan era anche stranamente esitante a premere il grilletto quando i ragazzi erano lunedì aperto; come se non avesse fiducia che sarebbero venuti giù con esso. Il programma imminente (contro CAR, @MIN, contro DET, @CAR) è abbastanza morbido che stai ancora iniziando Ryan, molto probabilmente, ma questo è stato un duro spettacolo.
- Una cosa che potresti aver perso: Il momento peggiore potrebbe essere stato quando Ryan ha esitato a fare un open Calvin Ridley in end zone e poi sotto di lui, permettendo a un difensore di mettere fuori gioco la palla. Ciò è costato a Ridley la sua unica presa del gioco – e mi è costato due diversi matchup Fantasy, per l’avvio. Ridley dovrebbe stare meglio nella quinta settimana dopo aver saltato gran parte dell’allenamento con un infortunio al polpaccio e alla caviglia, ma Jones che se ne è andato all’intervallo è stato un brutto segno per le sue possibilità di superare questo infortunio al tendine del ginocchio.
- Ancora una nota … Abbiamo visto i Packers coinvolgere i running back nel gioco dei passaggi, con Aaron Jones is Jamaal Williams combinando per 10 catture, 135 yard e un touchdown. Ciò includeva diversi passaggi ben oltre la linea di scrimmage, qualcosa che abbiamo visto spesso quando Adams era fuori lo scorso anno – e raramente in altro modo. Nelle quattro partite perse da Adams la scorsa stagione, Jones ha avuto 22 catture per 280 yard e tre touchdown, mentre Williams ha avuto 11 catture per 72 yard e tre punti in sole tre partite; si sono combinati per 55 catture, 375 yard e due touchdown per il resto della stagione. Mi piacerebbe vederlo diventare una parte più consistente dell’offesa anche quando Adams tornerà, ma non ho speranza.
