Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings

D'Andre Swift Note

The draft capital the Lions spent on Swift suggested that he'd take the lion's share of the running back touches in Detroit even with the presence of Adrian Peterson. But Swift has battled injury and missed two weeks of practice heading into the season, and word is that the Detroit coaching staff preferred a committee approach to the backfield. With the Lions now signing Adrian Peterson, it's hard to see Swift getting a big workload early on even if he is healthy. He'll likely eventually be the back you want to roster in Detroit and should certainly be drafted as a low-end Flex play, but be prepared to ride with other options for the first several weeks of the season.

T.J. Hockenson Note

Hockenson battled injuries throughout his rookie season bit is extremely talented, seeing a high average depth of target and more than a 14% target share. He's a potential breakout candidate but there's been some pessimism on his recovery from his ankle injury, and he admitted at the start of camp that he's not 100%. Monitor his progress but unless he's fully recovered, he's not worth drafting against other TE2s going in the same area, such as Jonnu Smith and Jack Doyle.

You may have seen Williams hit the waiver wire in some leagues. While that shouldn't happen, we know it does. Even if he's on someone's roster, go and see what it'd take to acquire him. We already know how things would go down in the Packers backfield if Jones were to miss any time, and that amounts to an RB1 in Williams. These are the types of players who win fantasy championships.

Perriman injured his ankle in Week 2 and will miss at least a week or two. There's no reason to roster him in fantasy leagues at this point, so drop him for someone with more upside.

Darren Fells Note

Fells caught both of his targets for 19 yards in the opener, but it was Jordan Akins who found the end zone and had the more productive day. Neither is worth rostering in anything other that deep, tight end-premium leagues.
