Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 1 PPR Rankings

Nick Chubb Note

The Bengals had an above-average run defense last year, but Chubb is nearly matchup-proof. In his first meeting with Cincinnati last season, Chubb trampled the Bengals to the tune of 23-101-2 on the ground. He wasn't as effective in the Week 14 rematch, finishing with 14-34-0 on the ground, his second-lowest rushing output on the year. But of course you're throwing Chubb into your lineup this week and feeling darned good about it.

Amari Cooper Note

Cooper has volatile home/road splits for his career. He's scored 34 career touchdowns at home, 21 on the road. Cooper has 31.4% more receiving yards at home than on the road. He has averaged 9.9 yards per target in 61 career home games, 7.5 yards per target in 64 career road games. The good news: Cooper opens the season in front of the faithful at Cleveland Browns Stadium. When Cooper faced the Bengals at home last season on Halloween night, he had five catches for 131 yards and a touchdown. Play him with confidence.

Elijah Moore Note

It will be interesting to see what sort of chemistry Moore has with Bengals QB Deshaun Watson. Moore couldn't get on the same page with Zach Wilson last year and more or less sulked his way into a trade to Cleveland. As a rookie in 2021, Moore had a six-game stretch where he had 34 catches for 459 yards and 5 touchdowns. Moore has the talent to become a valuable fantasy contributor, but it's easy to understand why his investors would want to see positive signs before plugging him into their starting lineups. Consider Moore a midrange WR with a wide range of outcomes.

David Njoku Note

Njoku had 58-628-4 receiving last year in only 14 games, and this weekend he'll face a Bengals defense that lost both of its starting safeties from last year, Jessie Bates and Vonn Bell. Njoku profiles as a midrange to low-end tight end for Week 1 and probably belongs in your lineup.
