Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 14 PPR Rankings
Christian McCaffrey photo 1. Christian McCaffrey RB - (at ATL)
Week 13 was one to forget for McCaffrey, who had a rare bad game. If only everyone else's bad games netted a top-15 finish in PPR formats, eh? Despite not scoring in his first matchup with the Falcons, McCaffrey totaled 191 total yards and finished as the RB1 on the week in PPR formats. Going over his last three matchups with the Dan Quinn defense, McCaffrey has totaled a ridiculous 37 receptions for 300 yards, though he oddly hasn't scored a touchdown on them. Those would be elite numbers for a wide receiver, let alone a running back. If he has another game like he did in Week 11, we could see McCaffrey make a push for the elusive 1,000/1,000 season. As of now, he's on pace for 1,556 rushing yards and 859 receiving yards. The only two running backs to ever do it were Marshall Faulk (1999) and Roger Craig (1985). Running backs have not been particularly efficient against the Falcons this year, as their 0.77 PPR points per opportunity against them ranks as the 12th-fewest. Still, McCaffrey isn't every running back and it's not like you're contemplating sitting him. I just need something to write here is all.

D.J. Moore photo 16. D.J. Moore WR - (at ATL)
He just continues to climb the yearly leaderboard, as he's now the No. 9 receiver on the year. It surely helps that he ranks fifth in the league with 115 targets, but that's necessary when you have Cam Newton and Kyle Allen throwing to you. He's seen at least eight targets in each of the last eight games and is now about to play a Falcons team that's allowed the seventh-most points to the wide receiver position. The high-floor with his target share should mean an extremely high-floor in his performance this week, as the Falcons have allowed the second-most yards per target and PPR points per target. The combination of Desmond Trufant and Isaiah Oliver has played much better since their bye week, allowing 26-of-37 passing for 298 yards and no touchdowns, though Moore was still able to rack-up eight catches for 95 yards in a game Allen clearly didn't have "it" against them in that stretch. Continue playing Moore as a high-end WR2 though this matchup doesn't look quite as good as it did just a month ago.

Curtis Samuel photo 69. Curtis Samuel WR - (at ATL)
It seemed as if Samuel was going to make up for lost production last week when he caught a touchdown early-on, but Allen's struggles limited his output. While he did finish with 65 yards and a touchdown, it could've been so much more, as Allen completely overthrew him on what would have been an 81-yard touchdown where Samuel's defender fell down. That's been the case with Samuel all year, as Allen has been the league's most inaccurate deep-ball passer, as he's completed just 8-of-38 passes that have traveled over 20 yards. The Falcons have allowed 45 pass plays to go for 20-plus yards, but again, you're relying on Allen to hit Samuel in stride. Knowing he's seen at least six targets in 10 of the last 11 games, Samuel should still be in high-end WR4 territory. It's more about Allen than it is about the matchup, which has gotten much harder over the last month.

Ian Thomas photo 159. Ian Thomas TE - (at ATL)
Thomas stepped in for the injured Olsen and caught all four of his targets for 24 yards in Week 13, and he thrived in a similar situation last year. In the final four games last season, Thomas caught 20 of 27 targets for 200 yards and two touchdowns. That was good for 13.0 PPR fantasy points per game, which would rank as TE10 on a per-game basis this season. If Olsen is unable to go, Thomas would slide in as a viable streaming option the rest of the way.

Greg Olsen photo 216. Greg Olsen TE - (at ATL)
Greg Olsen suffered a concussion in last week's loss, and is considered questionable this week. Recovery from concussions differs from each individual so much, so we probably should just assume the Panther do not try to rush their veteran back in this matchup. In his absence, Ian Thomas is expected to benefit the most.
