Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 PPR Rest of Season Rankings

Cooper Kupp Note

Kupp had arguably his worst game of the season in Week 9 and he finished with 13 targets, 11 catches, and 95 yards. He's an obvious hold with a strong case to be the No. 1 valued fantasy player entering the second half.

Darrell Henderson Jr. Note

This was supposed to be Henderson's smash week. Unfortunately, the lowly Lions wound up playing inspired football and kept things close enough to the point where the Rams weren't in clock-killing mode for the entire second half (as many of us anticipated). Week 7 was Henderson's first performance where he failed to finish as a top-20 PPR back. Better days are ahead and the utilization remains elite.

Van Jefferson Note

Through four games Jefferson's target share sits at 13.4%, which isn't that much lower than Robert Woods' 18.7% mark. Jefferson is also out-producing Woods in PPR leagues entering Week 5, which isn't necessarily predictive, but it's noteworthy. The Rams' offense is one to invest in right now. Jefferson is an injury away from WR2 upside.

Sony Michel Note

It finally happened for Michel, who I've been recommending as a must-have handcuff for months now. The former Patriot has now handled 23+ touches in both games that Darrell Henderson has missed this year. Henderson's current thigh injury isn't considered long-term, but Michel should be rostered throughout the fantasy playoffs just in case something else happens to the former down the stretch.

Matthew Stafford Note

Per ESPN Stats & Info, Stafford threw two 50+ yard touchdown passes in Week 1 against the Bears. Incredibly, this matched their 2020 total. The upcoming schedule isn't necessarily great - Colts, Bucs, Cardinals, Seahawks, Giants - but the Stafford/McVay partnership is off to a fantastical start.

Odell Beckham Jr. Note

It was reported on Sunday morning that Matthew Stafford is dealing with nagging injuries, which have likely played a part in the Rams' offensive struggles as of late. OBJ is in line for consistent targets with Robert Woods done for the year, and he saw 10 targets in Week 12 against the Packers. The highlight was a 54-yard touchdown, but Beckham wasn't efficient otherwise. "Selling" him is a bet against his talent at this point in his career. His name value is likely worth more than what his production will be rest-of-season.

Tyler Higbee Note

Over the Rams' past two games, Higbee has played 100% of the offensive snaps while running a route on 92% of Matthew Stafford's dropbacks. He has an 18.6% target share during this time and is someone to target moving forward.
