PFF fantasy football The recap focuses on player usage and stats, breaking down all the vital information you need to achieve fantastic success in 2021.
- Snaps include games recalled due to penalties such as offensive holding or defensive pass interference. The other three stats have these games removed.
- Targets may differ from official NFL sources. The most likely spread would come from a clear thrown pass, where the NFL can give the target to the nearest receiver, when that data won’t.
- Scopes are only on designed games. Quarterback scrambles will not count towards the total number of runs in the game.
Saints of New Orleans To Seattle Seahawks
- Alvin Kamara: 20 carries, 51 yards, 10 receptions, 128 receiving yards, 1 TD on receiving (4.13 YPRR)
- DK Metcalf: 2 receptions, 96 yards, 1 TD (57 yards after contact)
Avoid the Seahawks running backs: Rashaad Penny returned from the casualty reserve, turning the Seahawks’ three-man backfield into a four-man backfield. Alex Collins started up, and he or Penny played two records at a time. They ran more on records with Collins but had more success on records with Penny, which led to Penny ending with more shots.
Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas both saw action on third and long play as well as two-minute drills, which is similar to the Houston Texans backfield but on a more successful offense. It will be difficult to trust any of these backs and predict which weeks Collins will do better than Penny. Ideally, one of those full-backs is playing well enough to get back to work – at least until Chris Carson Return.
Also avoid Saints wide receptors: Chris Hogan retired last week, and the Saints had not Deonte Harris due to injury. Tre’Quan Smith was activated from the injured reserve a few hours before the game to provide help, and he went straight to No.2 on the Saints’ depth chart. New Orleans used many one-receiver sets, which limited the number of snaps from all wide receivers except Marquez Callaway.
The New Orleans wide receivers haven’t had much success in the passing game as Kamara has accounted for more than half of the Saints’ completed passes. We are also a week closer to Michael thomas‘come back, but he is still in a few weeks. All of the Saints’ wide receptors are capable of deep threats, but unfortunately their production is sporadic.
Ty Montgomery mostly played back due to the Saints’ injuries in the backfield as he only recorded a few shots on the wide receiver. Before Monday night, he’s only played two snaps in the backfield this season.
Buy low on Tyler Lockett: He finished with a disappointing performance of two catches and 12 yards. This was due to Seattle’s offensive struggles in general, but there’s plenty of reason to believe Lockett will do better for the rest of the season. Russell Wilson will have his pin removed soon and has a chance to come back ASAP. Seattle also had the fourth easiest program for wide receivers the rest of the season, including the fourth easiest of the fantastic playoffs. This means better days are ahead for all of the Seahawks’ wide receivers.
