2023 PPR Rest of Season Rankings

Travis Etienne Jr. Note

RB Travis Etienne was still a workhorse in Week 3 - 19 for 88 rushing, 4 for 50 on 5 targets, 71% snap share - but Tank Bigsby vultures a TD at the one-yard line. As always, the ETN explosive game is going to happen. Remains a trade-for target.

When Doug Pederson took over play calling in the second half... the plays were as follows.
Etienne rush for 11 yards, Etienne rush for 16 yards, Etienne rush for 5 yards, Penalty, Etienne catch for 17 yards. They came out the gates and scored a TD immediately after halftime. This offense will bounce back.

Calvin Ridley Note

Calvin Ridley posted another disappointing game...3 for 40 on 7 targets despite 108 air yards.

Was Week 1 a mirage? I'm not overly concerned about it because it's probably just Ridley rubbing off the rust. Again, the dude missed a lot of football the past two years. And after a great Week 1 against arguably the NFL's worst CB duo...he's suffered his lumps. Been plagued by drops in the end zone. False starts, mental mistakes. Just two targets in the second half of Week 3's loss versus the Texans

But over the entire three weeks...

24% target share and 37% air yards share. 5 red-zone targets but just 1 TD. Top-10 in expected fantasy points per game.

And now the Jaguars play "host" to Ridley's old team in London for Week 4. Can only imagine this will be an emotional game for Ridley as he faces the team that drafted and traded him.

Christian Kirk Note

Christian Kirk came away with the TD score. But just a 15% target share. Five targets in the second half.

Still expected more with Zay Jones out of the lineup that the rest of the guys would pick up the slack.

Considering the Jaguars are coming off back-to-back duds, I'd view Ridley as the buy-low and Kirk as the sell-high. But my most confident transaction is definitely going after ETN, whereas I think the Jaguars WRs will be up-and-down all year with how many of them are involved in the offense.
