Every league and every team is different. These are just a few of the players that interest me this week.
Jones’ 5.3 PPR fantasy points against the Chiefs in Week 9 was his lowest score since Week 1, but unlike that game where the Packers practically gave up their star while they were in the drags the Jordan LoveThe Managed Packers continued to rely on Jones as he saw 14 opportunities, which was still below his previous four-game average of 18.2, but not too low, especially given the flow of play and the quarterback situation. Jones is one of nine running backs to average 17 expected PPR fantasy points in his last five games, which is doubly impressive considering he ranks outside the top 15 at his position in terms of sharing of opportunities.
Jones’ efficiency per touch has been somewhat lacking this season, ranking 25th in yards per opportunity and 31st among running backs in actual yards per carry, but he continues to rank among the elite full-backs in terms of elusiveness, ranking 16th among all players in yards created. per touch, and sixth in total yards created. Best of all, the 4for4 Hot spot tool indicates that the Packers have the eighth easiest remaining calendar force (via aFPA) for running backs, making it a great time to step in for one of the game’s elite talents.
I’m trying to pack a lower tier RB1 and a FLEX WR to try and acquire Jones’ services for the remainder of the season.
What initially looked like negative variance for the Chiefs’ offense now looks like a trend, with Kansas City continuing to fight offensively against the Green Bay Packers, scoring a meager 13 points, their lowest total of the season. To the Packers’ credit, they are now ranked in the top 10 in the PFF team’s defensive standings and in the AFPA for opposing attacks, but Mahomes played poorly during parts of last Sunday’s game, throwing in for a record. of 166 passes. construction sites and 54.1% completion percentage.
Mahomes has now finished outside the top 15 quarterbacks scoring for three straight weeks and hasn’t even managed to reach 6.0 yards per passing attempt in four of his last five starts and five of his last seven starts. And even so, I can almost guarantee that someone in your fantasy league will see Mahomes ending September (and his previous season ending) and be willing to bet on Mahomes returning to his elite status beforehand.
While that’s certainly part of his lineup of results, it’s now far from a guarantee for Mahomes, who now ranks 21st among quarterbacks in adjusted yards per attempt, and 24th in catch rate. The Hot spot tool ranks Kansas City’s remaining schedule as the toughest in the league, with Mahomes securing playoff clashes against three elite defenses, the Broncos, Chargers and Steelers, in Weeks 13-16.
I’m taking advantage of Mahomes’ elite mark to get a low-end QB1 and an extra running back where possible.
CeeDee lamb trade
Lamb is one of the game’s brightest young stars and already has a week this season finishing as the top wide receiver in fantasy. But even on the Cowboys’ offense, which had been elite ahead of their Week 9 home shellacking against Denver, Lamb continues to be a very volatile player in your starting lineup, having finished outside the top 50 wide receivers in fantasy scoring four times in the past seven weeks. The Cowboys inexplicably avoid giving Lamb full-time snaps, as he currently ranks WR35 in Road Turnout and WR38 in Red Zone Targets, and ranks outside of the Top 24 in Targets. per course and in expected fantasy points per match.
Despite the volatility of its use, it’s pretty impressive that over the past six weeks, Lamb is one of five wide receivers to average expected double-digit fancy points (via PFF’s EP model), and still scored at least three more fantasy points than expected. His talent is undeniable and he made the most of fluctuating use, but as we head into the fantastic playoffs we should be aiming for more consistent volume, and Lamb, despite a week on the rise, can help us out. to acquire exactly that. Still the WR10 in our rankings for the rest of the season, I don’t move lamb unless I get fair value, but traders should be able to use lamb as the main piece of a deal for a high end RB1.
