Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 Rest of Season Rankings

Najee Harris Note

Harris saw a whopping 19 targets in Week 3 against the Bengals, which is more than Nick Chubb saw in all of 2020. The 19 targets were the second highest total for a running back since the stat started being recorded in 1992 (Alvin Kamara had a 20 target game in 2018, because of course he did). Anyways, entering Week 4, Harris has played on 190 offensive snaps while Benny Snell has been on the field for just seven. Volume is the rookie's calling card. Continue to fire him up as an RB1 despite Pittsburgh's offensive struggles.

Diontae Johnson Note

Johnson has hit at least a 32% target share in four of five healthy games entering Week 7. He's a locked-in, top-18 fantasy wideout moving forward.

Chase Claypool Note

There are some advanced metrics that pin Claypool as a talented player, but his skill set just doesn't align with the 2021 version of Ben Roethlisberger. Pittsburgh's offense has more or less collapsed down the stretch, which has capped Claypool's ceiling and floor. He has just one touchdown on the season and draws the Browns in the fantasy finals.

Pat Freiermuth Note

Eric Ebron returned in Week 10, but it didn't stop Freiermuth from maintaining the strong target shares he was putting up in the past three weeks. A high-end prospect coming out of college, Freiermuth is worth rostering everywhere as a low-end TE1 moving forward.
