Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings

Joe Mixon Note

It might be tempting to sell high after Mixon has "burned" fantasy managers so many times before, but we would all be best served to resist that urge. From Weeks 1-5 Mixon received a double-digit target share just once. Over his past four games, however, he has hit that number three times. He's a legitimate RB1. Don't overthink it.

Ja'Marr Chase Note

Chase's mind-meld with college teammate Joe Burrow led to a season-high 10 targets, 159 yards, and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Packers. From Weeks 2-5 he ranks second in the NFL in YPRR, trailing on Davante Adams (2.98 compared to 3.1, per PFF). The rookie is once again moving up the WR2 ranks.

Tee Higgins Note

Higgins has gone nuclear the past three weeks, totaling at least 114 yards in each contest. Months of Ja'Marr Chase breaking explosive plays has finally caused opposing defenses to devote more attention to him, which has opened the door for this end-of-season Higgins revival. He can be confidently fired up as a WR2 the rest of the way.

Tyler Boyd Note

In five games with Tee Higgins, Boyd has seen a combined 28 targets. Ja'Marr Chase has seen 37 and Higgins has seen 53. Boyd is the odd man out when all three receivers are healthy. He isn't a difference-maker in fantasy football.
