Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings

Leonard Fournette Note

With Giovani Bernard sidelined in Week 4, "playoff Lenny" handled 93% of the LDD snaps and 100% of the two-minute work. Bernard returned in Week 5, and suddenly Fournette wasn't seeing the field for long-down-and-distance opportunities anymore. He still handled all the two-minute work, which is a good sign for his going-forward outlook. Bernard's usage in the passing game will be something to monitor on Thursday Night Football this week.

Mike Evans Note

As expected, Saints corner Marshon Lattimore gave Evans some fits in Week 8. Nonetheless, 'Big Mike' just missed hauling in a long touchdown reception. The Bucs have a bye this week before drawing the burnable Washington secondary in Week 10. Keep Evans rostered for that pristine matchup.

Chris Godwin Note

Through six weeks, Godwin is seeing a 17% target share with a 9.0 ADOT. The Bucs can't feature everyone every week, but his time will be coming again soon.

Rob Gronkowski Note

Including playoffs, Gronk now has 11 touchdowns over his past 16 games. In his past three contests, he has secured 15-of-16 targets for 186 yards and four TDs. That's fantastic, but the future Hall-of-Famer is still fighting the age model in a crowded receiving corps. It was tempting to tag him as a "sell", but the Week 1 results are just impossible to ignore.

Antonio Brown Note

Brown's role on the Bucs is similar to what it was in 2020; he isn't running a lot of routes, but Tom Brady is looking for him whenever he's on the field. This leads "AB" to being a more volatile fantasy option than we'd typically like, but it also increases his chances at spiked games. Consider him an upside WR3 moving forward.

Ronald Jones II Note

Giovani Bernard Note

Bernard had a very useful fantasy performance in a Week 3 loss to the Rams, catching nine passes for 51 yards and a touchdown. However, his role remains unchanged. Bernard is Tampa Bay's third-down and two-minute back. Unfortunately, we don't anticipate the Bucs trailing much this season. This will make Bernard's week-to-week production a difficult guessing game.
