Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 14 PPR Rankings

Ja'Marr Chase Note

Chase returned last week and immediately returned to his alpha role. Chase led the team with a 25.8% target share, 29% air yard share, and 2.94 yards per route run (91.7% route run rate). Chase is 14th in PFF receiving grade and 20th in yards per route run as the WR7 in fantasy points per game (minimum 25 targets). In the eight games Chase has played, he leads the team with ten deep targets. Despite his limited number of games played, Chase is seventh among wide receivers in red zone targets. If Burrow burns this secondary deep, Chase will be the reason why. Chase is a WR1 that will run about 73% of his routes against Denzel Ward (67.5% catch rate, 107.8 passer rating) and Martin Emerson (56% catch rate, 83.6 passer rating).

In the seven full games Higgins has played with Chase, he has an 18% target share (6.9 targets per game), an 11.8% endzone target share, and 24.5% air yard share (2.16 yards per route run). Higgins is the WR16, ranking 18th in receptions (60) and tenth in receiving yards (861) among wide receivers. Higgins is 16th in PFF receiving grade and yards per route run (minimum 25 targets). Higgins is a WR2 that will run about 78% of his routes against Ward and Emerson.

Joe Mixon Note

Mixon hasn't played since Week 11 as he recovers from a concussion. He was limited in practice all week and unable to gain final clearance. I'll update his status on Friday once we have more clarity on his practice reports this week.

Tyler Boyd Note

Boyd is the WR37 in fantasy points per game with a 14.9% target share and 20.6% air-yard share. With Chase out of the lineup, Boyd was a WR3 twice but never higher than that. Boyd has played third fiddle all season, seeing limited high-value usage as he ranks 66th in deep targets and 49th in red zone targets among wide receivers. Boyd is a WR3/4 that will run about 82% of his routes against Greg Newsome (66.7% catch rate, 102.1 passer rating).

Perine has been outstanding in filling in for Mixon. Over the last two weeks, he's averaged 24 touches and 124 total yards as the RB10 and RB3 in fantasy. Perine is 23rd in yards after contact per attempt and 22nd in PFF's elusive rating (minimum 25 carries). Check back on Friday to see if he gets another week in the starter's chair.
