Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
Robert Woods Note

There is a pretty big disconnect between what the average fantasy football player thinks about Woods and what the expert consensus thinks about him, with the latter being significantly higher. Woods scored just three touchdowns last year but there is bound to be positive regression, and he's seen at least 130 targets in each of the last two years. With Brandin Cooks gone, and with how Woods came on toward the second half of the season, he's much closer to a WR1 than fantasy managers are giving him credit for.

Darrell Henderson Note

Remember how we saw Ronald Jones' fantasy value disappear overnight? The same thing has started to happen to Henderson, who's stuck in a three-way timeshare with Malcolm Brown and Cam Akers. On top of that, the Rams have the fifth-hardest remaining schedule in football.

Cam Akers Note

Akers suffered a rib injury and will miss Week 3's game against the Bills. Akers' long-term availability doesn't appear threatened yet, but his absence will make it all the more difficult to gain the starting role when he returns, particularly if Darrell Henderson or Malcolm Brown can rack up a few big weeks.

Tyler Higbee Note

Higbee had one of the most unexpected and dominant short-term breakouts in recent memory last season. Over the final five games, he averaged 8.6 receptions and 104 yard per contest after being essentially a fantasy afterthought for his entire career prior. There are questions about heading into the season, including whether the Rams will continue running more of the 12 personnel they ran late in the year and the impact of a healthy Gerald Everett. But, there just aren't many tight ends who are even capable of doing what Higbee did at the end of last year, meaning he needs to be viewed as a mid-tier TE1, albeit with a bit of a skeptical eye.

Malcolm Brown Note

Brown hurt his finger in Week 2, and although he should be good to play going forward, he may have ceded the top role in the backfield to Darrell Henderson, who performed well against the Eagles. With Cam Akers nursing a rib injury, Brown is certainly worth rostering, but probably not starting absent Henderson struggling significantly.

Gerald Everett Note

Everett wasn't a startable tight end for most of the season anyway, but he dealt with injuries over the last several weeks of the year and was completely irrelevant. Unfortunately for Everett, Tyler Higbee emerged as a force down the stretch, furthering deepening the divide between Everett and fantasy-relevancy. He's beyond even TE2 consideration at this point.
