2021 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings

DeAndre Hopkins Note

Hopkins' target share has hovered around 30% for most of the past four seasons. Unfortunately, in 2021, it's right around 20% through six games. Part of this is the rib injury he's battling, but Arizona also has more mouths to feed this season and therefore doesn't need to rely on him as much. His talent keeps him in the WR1 conversation moving forward, but he'll need to remain highly efficient to pay off his draft day acquisition cost. Six touchdowns (already matching his 2020 total) certainly helps.

Christian Kirk Note

I'm labeling Kirk as a "sell" just as a warning before fantasy managers spend too much FAAB on him. Yes, the two TDs were nice, but Kirk played on just 54% of the snaps in Week 1. This doesn't mean he won't have a role this season, and perhaps additional fantasy-relevant weeks, but expectations should be kept in check.

A.J. Green Note

The 33-year-old ranks second on the Cardinals in routes and targets, which gives him weekly FLEX viability as we approach a plethora of bye weeks. There likely isn't a ton of upside here, and Arizona has several mouths to feed, but Green is beating his draft day ADP so far.

Rondale Moore Note

Through five weeks it doesn't seem as if the Cardinals want to utilize Moore as a full-time player. However, he's simply electric with the ball in his hands; and as we learned on Sunday, at hauling in toe-tapping sideline catches. The rookie totaled 97 combined rushing and receiving yards in Week 5. The usage might be volatile for now, but as a first year player that will hopefully change as the season moves along. Investing in Moore now is simply a bet on talent.
