NFL Week 2 Snaps, Touches, and Targets Report

Week 2 gave us our first opportunity to try to determine whether some of the things we saw the week prior were sustainable or the product of circumstance. The short answer is that it’s often both. We saw players like rookie phenom Marquise “Hollywood” Brown see an uptick in snaps and targets as a result of an impressive Week 1 performance. Brown’s cousin, Antonio, made his 2019 debut with the New England Patriots in Week 2. His presence contributed to a reduction in targets for every other Patriots pass-catcher. Of course, injuries are always a factor when it comes to usage. Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor were the last men standing for the Eagles on Sunday night, which led to inflated totals for each. Below are the Week 2 snaps, touches, and targets for each player.

Before I present the data, I want to mention a couple of things regarding each team’s chart. First, the tables are currently sorted by Week 2 snap count. You should have the ability to sort by whichever category you see fit. Also, you can increase the number of names listed from 10 (the current default setting) to 25. This will allow you to see everyone who has played so far this season. Most teams have used between 10-12 players, but there are a couple of outliers. You should be able to use this data in conjunction with matchup analysis to determine waiver wire pickups as well as which players should be in your starting lineup. With that out of the way, let’s get to it!

NFL Week 2 Snaps, Touches, and Targets Report

Michael Crabtree, WRIAIA193130N/AN/AN/AN/A

David Johnson exited this game for a bit due to an injury. That is the reason he saw a reduced snap count in Week 2. Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald are both looking like draft day bargains in Kliff Kingsbury’s Air Raid offense. This fast-paced offense is going to lead to a ton of targets for Arizona’s primary wideouts. Damiere Byrd looks to be the other receiver getting full-time work. He is not stretching the field at all, but he does have seven targets in each game so far. Michael Crabtree made his 2019 debut but was a non-factor. His playing time came at the expense of Keesean Johnson. Despite Arizona going with four wide receivers more than half of the time in each of their first two games, Andy Isabella cannot get onto the field. He did not play at all Sunday after playing just seven snaps in the opener.

Atlanta Falcons (78 plays in Week 1, 66 in Week 2)

Jaeden Graham, TE0020002040
Kenjon Barner, RB000031IAIAIAIA

Devonta Freeman owners were treated to a more typical snap split between Freeman and Ito Smith. However, this is still far from a monopoly. Freeman saw the field on 62 percent of snaps, with Smith getting the other 38 percent. That is a bit unnerving when you consider that Atlanta trailed for a grand total of 63 seconds. Smith also popped a 28-yard run while Freeman totaled just 22 on 11 carries. Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley dominated Philadelphia’s secondary. No other receiver did much of consequence in the receiving game. Mohamed Sanu threw a key block on Jones’ game-winning 54-yard touchdown catch and run. He is a valuable part of the offense who will run into big games from time to time.

Following an extraordinary debut in limited action (14 snaps) in Week 1, Marquise Brown was on the field for 65 percent of Week 2 snaps. He was Lamar Jackson’s favorite target, garnering 13 targets. Through two weeks, the passing game has gone through two players – Brown and Mark Andrews. Both have massive target shares (28 and 27 percent, respectively) and average over 100 yards per game. We got a little more clarity on the backfield situation since this was a relatively close game. Mark Ingram is still the running back you want to own in Baltimore for now. He was on the field nearly three times as much as Gus Edwards or Justice Hill. All three tight ends saw significant work, but only Mark Andrews is a relevant fantasy commodity.

Devin Singletary, RB486256IAIAIAIAIAIA

Devin Singletary was on the field for just 33 percent of Week 2 snaps. This was a far cry from the 70 percent he saw the week before. He spent some time on the sidelines dealing with a hamstring injury, but Frank Gore saw a lot of action in this game. His snap share more than doubled (59 percent from 28 percent) in Week 2. Gore appears to be the preferred option when Buffalo leads, though Singletary has impressed when given the chance. Once again, T.J. Yeldon was not involved. He can safely be dropped as long as Singletary is on track to play. Buffalo rotated their wide receivers a little more in this game. John Brown is still the lone trustworthy option among this group. He is the only receiver who has played at least half of Buffalo’s offensive snaps in each game.

Christian McCaffrey has now played on all 146 offensive snaps Carolina has taken this season. Jordan Scarlett has played on five. Sufficed to say, preseason talk about potentially reducing McCaffrey’s workload was just that. The same can be said for Greg Olsen. It was thought that the veteran would be eased into action following back-to-back injury-riddled seasons. His 88 percent snap rate so far this season suggests otherwise. His snap rate is especially high given Carolina’s short turnaround last week. Olsen should once again be treated as a TE1 for as long as he can remain healthy. D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel are the other full-time players in this offense, and each saw a ton of targets (Moore 14, Samuel 13) in a game that was a one-score affair from start to finish. Cam Newton may not play on Sunday, but I would not downgrade anyone. Newton has not looked healthy (or good) so far this year.

Chicago’s offense was downright abysmal in this game. Their three longest plays from scrimmage were two rushes by wide receivers and a 25-yard pass on the penultimate play of the game. The one saving grace for fantasy players in Week 2 was the added workload for David Montgomery. The rookie led the backfield in snaps and dominated touches. Even more encouraging was his usage around the goal line. Montgomery finally scored the Bears’ first touchdown of the season on his fifth rushing attempt from inside the five-yard line. He had gained just three yards on his previous four carries. Matt Nagy’s willingness to keep feeding Montgomery in that situation is encouraging. Anthony Miller and Trey Burton are being eased into the flow as they work their way back to full strength.

Joe Mixon suited up after being questionable all week due to an injury. He was not himself and netted just 27 total yards on 14 touches. Giovani Bernard failed to capitalize and totaled just 13 yards on seven touches. The only player who was effective throughout was Tyler Boyd. Boyd hauled in all 10 of his targets for 122 yards. John Ross caught a 66-yard touchdown pass with less than a minute remaining and Cincinnati down 31. It still counts for our purposes. Before that, Ross had three catches for 46 yards on seven targets. It remains to be seen how the former first-round pick will be used once A.J. Green returns, but owners should continue to ride the wave. Green is likely to be sidelined longer than originally anticipated, and Ross is a threat to take it to the house every time he touches the football.

Cleveland’s offense is pretty cut and dried for the most part. Nick Chubb continues to dominate the backfield and will do so at least until Kareem Hunt returns from suspension. Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry will get most of the looks in the passing game. The only fly in the ointment in Week 2 was the early injury suffered by David Njoku. He suffered a concussion and did not return. In his stead, Demetrius Harris saw most of the work. Pharaoh Brown and Ricky Seals-Jones were sprinkled in. None contributed anything of note in the boxscore. If Njoku cannot clear concussion protocol before Sunday, Harris would be worth a DFS dart throw. Cleveland figures to be in a shootout with the Rams, who have struggled to cover tight ends in the past.

Predictably, Dallas eased Ezekiel Elliott into action in the opener but went full throttle with their star running back in Week 2. Elliott had 25 touches, which is roughly what he averaged a season ago. The usual suspects did their thing in the passing game, and yet another threat may have emerged. Devin Smith replaced an injured Tavon Austin and corraled all three of his targets. In the process, he scored his second career touchdown. Smith’s comeback would appear to be a one-off, except that Michael Gallup needs surgery to trim his meniscus. The breakout candidate is expected to miss 2-4 weeks. Smith may earn a few looks while Gallup is sidelined. I would not rush to acquire Smith in redraft leagues, but he is worth a shot in DFS against Miami. You may not know this, but the Dolphins are not very good.

Denver continued a virtual 50/50 backfield split between Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman. Freeman was the more effective runner for the second consecutive week. Perhaps more surprising was his involvement in the passing game. Freeman had a career-high 48 yards on five receptions. Before that game, and removing last year’s Week 17 effort, Freeman had totaled just seven grabs for 34 yards in his other 14 NFL games. If he continues to be involved as a receiver, he will be a great bargain this year. Emmanuel Sanders continues to defy the injury odds and surpass expectations. He and Courtland Sutton have lapped DaeSean Hamilton, who is nothing more than an underneath threat. Joe Flacco renewed his love affair with tight ends, connecting on 9 of 10 passes to Denver trio of tight ends. Noah Fant is the only one worthy of fantasy consideration but is not a trustworthy option by any means.

Those expecting a repeat from T.J. Hockenson and Danny Amendola in Week 2 were greatly disappointed. The duo combined for seven yards on just three targets. The easy answer is to say that their weekly production going forward should be somewhere between their Week 1 and Week 2 output. Just because it is obvious does not make it any less true. Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones combined for a 13-160-1 line on 16 targets. They will have the most reliable week-to-week numbers among Detroit pass catchers. Kerryon Johnson still saw roughly half of the team’s rushing attempts, but Ty Johnson split second-team reps with C.J. Anderson and looked good in doing so. So good, in fact, that Anderson was released after the game. This is good news for both Kerryon and Ty. Kerryon Johnson is likely looking at a weekly floor of 15 touches.

Aaron Rodgers started on fire as Green Bay got up early. He threw for 134 yards and two scores in the first quarter. Once ahead, Matt Lafleur slammed on the brakes. Rodgers threw for just 75 scoreless yards over the last three quarters. This worked out quite nicely for Aaron Jones and, to a lesser extent, Jamaal Williams. Jones had a career-high 27 touches which he turned into 150 total yards and a score. Williams had 12 touches including a first-quarter receiving touchdown. I would expect a similar split going forward, but the actual number of touches each back receives will vary based on game flow. In Week 1, Jones out-touched Williams 14-7 in a game that was close throughout. Geronimo Allison finally saw some targets and scored a touchdown. However, he still saw fewer snaps and targets than Marquez Valdes-Scantling. No tight end was targeted in this game. Jimmy Graham is still more of a TE2 than TE1.

It may be time for me to start a Duke Johnson truther support group. Johnson was an afterthought as Carlos Hyde dominated the backfield in Week 2. Hyde has looked rejuvenated and has played well against two good defenses. I think Hyde is a Flex play depending on your roster. Johnson’s role appears more game-specific, making him a dicier option. Will Fuller has been great on a per-game basis throughout his young career. A clean bill of health heading into 2019 made him a popular sleeper, but so far he has been relatively quiet. The good news is that he is on the field a lot. It is only a matter of time before he has a blowup game. Keke Coutee returned in Week 2, rendering DeAndre Carter irrelevant. Coutee and Kenny Stills will be inconsistent options, though they will likely have higher ceilings than most WR4/5 types.

On the bright side, Marlon Mack leads the NFL in carries. The bad news is that he was significantly outgained by Jordan Wilkins in Week 2, who carried the ball just five times. Mack had a long run of 10 yards on his 20 carries, while Wilkins had two carries of at least 15 yards. Wilkins may earn some more touches this week. T.Y. Hilton has managed to stay afloat with three touchdown receptions. However, the shots down the field figure to be few and far between with Jacoby Brissett at the helm. The Colts have just one pass play of over 20 yards so far. With Devin Funchess sidelined, Deon Cain saw the biggest increase in snap count. However, it did not show up in the boxscore. Pass catchers after Hilton will be difficult to trust. Jack Doyle is the only other pass-catcher who has played more than 40 percent of snaps, but it has only netted him a 3-41-0 line through two games.

It sure looks like Leonard Fournette is going to get all the work his body can handle. Fournette has played on 92 percent of snaps and has 36 touches so far this season. He may struggle on a per-play basis with defenses loading the box, but the volume should be enough to allow him to produce at a high level. Dede Westbrook was a popular draft pick in fantasy leagues. But early on, this looks very much like a three-way split among Jaguars receivers. Westbrook has seen the most snaps among Jacksonville wideouts but is a distant third behind D.J. Chark and Chris Conley in receiving yards. The three have relatively similar target shares. As mentioned last week, both Jaguar tight ends will get targets, but neither are fantasy relevant.

Damien Williams left Sunday’s game with a knee injury and LeSean McCoy is dealing with an ankle issue. Williams is more likely to suit up in Week 3 against the Ravens. If McCoy is out, it may be Williams’ last shot to gain control of this backfield. The distribution between the two has been fairly even so far. It was a bummer to see Sammy Watkins finish with 49 scoreless yards last week, but once again he led the team in snaps and targets. Demarcus Robinson blew up instead, catching all six of his targets for 172 yards and two scores. He will be this week’s most popular free agent add. Mecole Hardman also stepped up with 61 yards and a touchdown. In addition, Hardman had a would-be 72-yard touchdown catch negated by a penalty. He and Robinson will be viable weekly options while Tyreek Hill is out, but their floors are lower than last week’s game would suggest.

Melvin who? Once again it was the Austin Ekeler show in Los Angeles. Ekeler has been a beast while replacing Melvin Gordon, particularly in PPR leagues. Ekeler caught six passes for the second consecutive week and out-touched Justin Jackson 23-8 in Week 2. With Gordon and Hunter Henry out, Ekeler and Keenan Allen are carrying the offensive load. Allen saw a whopping 15 targets against Detroit, parlaying them into eight catches for 98 yards. Mike Williams was iffy coming into the game but played close to his normal share of snaps. Williams, Allen, and Ekeler were the only Chargers to catch multiple passes. The trio should continue to dominate targets until Henry and/or Gordon come back. Virgil Green saw the bulk of reps at tight end but is not a reliable fantasy option.

So far, The Great Todd Gurley Debate of 2019 has yet to produce a clear winner. The verdict is probably that both camps will have weeks where they look “right”. Gurley will not see the volume (and most likely the fantasy points) that he did in 2017-2018, but he is still the lead back in a potent offense. He is the RB18 in PPR formats through two weeks. Malcolm Brown sits at RB25. I expect the gap to widen a bit, but Brown will have big weeks as well. The three receivers have all played on at least 90 percent of snaps in each game. All are must-starts as long as they remain healthy. I equate Gerald Everett and Tyler Higbee to Jacksonville’s pair of tight ends, though Everett and Higbee have a higher probability to score a touchdown in any given week.

Nobody on the Dolphins has eclipsed 100 total yards through two games, so I’m not sure how relevant their snap counts are. Kenyan Drake is the leader of the backfield and the team’s best playmaker. Kalen Ballage was comically bad on Sunday, but there’s no guarantee he sees fewer snaps as a result. DeVante Parker leads the team with 14 targets but has three receptions to show for it. Rookie Preston Williams has shown a bit of promise in his first two games. He leads the team with 87 yards. Sure, that’s less than Odell Beckham had on one play last week, but it’s something. Right?

Dalvin Cook is looking like a perfect fit for new OC Gary Kubiak’s zone rushing scheme. Cook had 23 touches and 191 yards from scrimmage in Minnesota’s Week 2 loss. Nobody else on the team touched the ball more than five times. The Vikings fell behind 21-0 early, so Cook’s usage was incredibly encouraging. Alexander Mattison is a distant second behind Cook, but he should be added if you have room on your bench. He has performed well in limited duty and would be in line to carry the load if the often-injured Cook went down. Kirk Cousins has completed just 22 passes through two weeks. That is a problem for those who invested top-40 picks on Adam Thielen and/or Stefon Diggs. Both had decent days on Sunday, but the blowup potential is greatly reduced on a team that prioritizes the run game.

Antonio Brown made his Patriots debut and was involved early. He led the team in targets and receiving yards. His involvement predictably took a bit from each of New England’s other receiving options. There are a lot of mouths to feed in New England, so one or two of them are likely to disappoint in a given week. However, they must still be started in all formats. The Patriots can score at will, so the touchdown upside is there for all of their pass catchers. Sony Michel had a big game including 21 carries. He benefits from a positive game script, which there will be no shortage of. James White managed a touchdown, but he does not figure to approach his 2018 level of production with Rex Burkhead in the fold. Burkhead has had more touches than White in each of New England’s first two games.

Drew Brees is out six weeks after surgery to repair his right thumb. Teddy Bridgewater will be the primary quarterback in Brees’ absence. Despite the real-world implications, I would not downgrade Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas too much. Their ceilings are a bit lower without Brees but they still have to be treated as elite options at their respective positions, especially in PPR leagues. I would downgrade everyone else and would try to avoid starting them if possible. Scoring opportunities will be less plentiful with Brees out. Plus you just know that Sean Payton is going to run some random Taysom Hill plays in the red zone. No thanks.

Sterling Shepard missed Week 2 with a concussion. His snaps were mostly soaked up by the combination of Russell Shepard, T.J. Jones, and Cody Core. Jones scored a touchdown and had an impressive showing in the preseason. Cody Latimer also left with a concussion on Sunday. With he and Sterling Shepard’s statuses still in doubt, Jones may be able to make an impact this week. Bennie Fowler has caught five passes and played on over 70 percent of snaps in each game so far. I still would not use a waiver claim or spend much FAAB on any of these receivers outside of deep leagues. The insertion of Daniel Jones at quarterback may breathe a little life into the passing attack, but Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram are still the top threats in this offense. Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate figure to get the most work out of the receiving corps when they return to action.

Owners who invested an early pick on Le’Veon Bell are getting their money’s worth, at least from a volume standpoint. Bell has 54 touches through two games. The efficiency, however, is not likely to be there. The Jets are already on their third quarterback, and their offensive line has predictably struggled. Defenses will key in on Bell without fear of being beaten down the field. Bell should keep elite value in PPR leagues for as long as he remains upright. He has a legitimate shot at catching 100 balls this year. Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder are the only other Jets worth rostering in fantasy leagues, but even they will be largely inconsistent. Anderson will have problems making big plans with Luke Falk at the helm. Crowder is a decent PPR play but averages a paltry 7.7 yards per reception.

Week 1 may turn out to be an atypical game script for the Oakland Raiders. Therefore, we should put more stock into their Week 2 usage. That may throw a bit of cold water onto Josh Jacobs’ rest of season outlook. Jacobs saw just 46 percent of snaps after being on the field for 74 percent of Week 1 snaps. Almost all of the extra snaps went to pass-catching specialist Jalen Richard. If Oakland falls behind, it appears Jacobs may not get a full workload. The good news is that he ran for 99 yards on just 12 carries. If he continues that level of production, he should prove to be game script-proof. Tyrell Williams and Darren Waller are here to stay and are worthy of starting each week. It is worth noting, however, that Derek Carrier was targeted five times despite only playing nine snaps. Hunter Renfrow appears to benefit during games in which the Raiders are playing catchup.

Please, please, please, do NOT read anything into the snap counts or target share of any pass-catchers in this game. The Eagles had a crazy rash of early injuries in this game which skews virtually all of the numbers. Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson will remain out, but hopefully, you have better Week 3 options than the likes of Nelson Agholor. I do trust the usage of their running backs, however. For a second consecutive week, Miles Sanders led the backfield in snaps and touches. And, for a second consecutive week, Jordan Howard trailed both Sanders and Darren Sproles in snaps. Howard is borderline droppable as far as I am concerned. I don’t know how much we can realistically expect from Sanders given the timeshare, but he certainly has way more upside than Howard.

The Steelers used some two-tight end formations in Week 2. As a result, Vance McDonald led all Steeler skill players with 52 snaps. He did not stretch the field at all, but he caught all seven targets and scored two touchdowns. That works for us. Donte Moncrief and Ryan Switzer lost the most snaps due to the adjustment, although Moncrief’s poor play may have had more to do with him riding the pine than any conscious effort to bolster the blocking efforts. It is certainly possible that James Washington can overtake Moncrief and make some noise, especially with Mason Rudolph now manning the controls. James Conner suffered a knee injury but declared himself good to go for Week 3. Conner and Jaylen Samuels saw usage virtually identical to what they experienced in the season opener.

Matt Breida, Raheem Mostert, and Jeff Wilson each ran the ball at least 10 times and each had at least 14.2 PPR points in San Francisco’s Week 2 win. Wilson was on the practice squad a week ago but now looks like the preferred red zone back in a potent offense. He will be a popular add this week. It is hard to say how long Mostert and Wilson will remain relevant. Much depends on the health of Tevin Coleman, who may return as soon as Week 5 following the team’s bye week. Deebo Samuel led the club in receiving and had seven of the 16 targets intended for wide receivers. Jimmy Garoppolo spread the ball to eight different pass catchers, but Dante Pettis was not one of them. Pettis did complete a pass, so at least there’s that. I would not blame anyone for cutting bait, particularly those with short benches. Any owners who are worried about George Kittle need to relax. It’s not like you own O.J. Howard.

It might be time to worry if you are a Chris Carson owner. He has put up decent numbers so far, including 167 total yards and two touchdowns. But there is another glaring number that is quite problematic. It is the “2” found in the “fumbles lost” column. Carson played just 54 percent of snaps, much lower than his 77 percent total from Week 1. Perhaps worse was that Rashaad Penny and C.J. Prosise handled the extra workload with relative ease. Penny ran for 62 yards including a 37-yard touchdown run, while Prosise secured all three of his targets. Carson may be heading into Week 3 on a short leash. Seattle’s passing game thrived after being dormant in Week 1. Tyler Lockett did most of his damage underneath, catching 10 passes for 79 yards. DK Metcalf is looking the part early in the year. He has averaged 75 yards over his first two NFL games. Will Dissly caught two touchdowns and continues to be an underrated fantasy tight end.

Peyton Barber started strong and Bruce Arians decided to ride the hot hand. The result was Barber shredding (you’re welcome) the Panthers defense for 82 yards and a touchdown. He still averaged just 3.6 yards per carry because he’s Peyton Barber. But it does look like he will get the first opportunity most weeks to establish himself as Tampa’s primary option out of the backfield. Ronald Jones did not get the playing time boost many of us anticipated following a strong Week 1 effort. Those who called for the Chris Godwin breakout are looking smart so far. He has led Tampa in snaps, targets, and receiving yards in each game so far. Godwin also has a touchdown catch in both games. Meanwhile, Tampa’s other breakout candidate, O.J. Howard, has not fared as well. Howard was not even targeted in last week’s win and is the TE42 through Week 2.

Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis split snaps 50/50. They definitely did not split touches 50/50. Henry received 17 touches in Week 2, while Lewis had just four. Henry even had more receptions than Lewis. This was a grind-it-out, one-possession game throughout. These are exactly the kinds of games that Tennessee wants to play. When they do, Henry will get the vast majority of the workload. Delanie Walker had four catches on six targets for 39 yards. He led the Titans in all three categories. That sums up Tennessee’s passing game in a nutshell. If you thought this would be the year Corey Davis would break out, believed Adam Humphries would be a viable WR3 in PPR formats, or if you bought high on A.J. Brown after his stellar Week 1 outing, you are likely to be disappointed.

After being a healthy scratch for the first time in his Hall of Fame career in Week 1, Adrian Peterson returned to the lineup. He scored a touchdown but did little else on 12 touches. I still think Chris Thompson is the best weekly bet in PPR leagues. Wide receiver Steven Sims was second on the team with three carries despite being on the field for just five snaps. Rookie wide receiver Terry McLaurin continues to impress. Once again he led Washington in receiving yards and targets. He also caught his second touchdown of the young season. Paul Richardson also scored, but had just three targets and nine receiving yards. Vernon Davis continues to fill in nicely for the injured Jordan Reed. Reed’s status for Week 3 is still up in the air, but either would be a recommended option against Chicago.
