Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 3 Rankings

Tony Pollard Note
Tony Pollard photo 1. Tony Pollard RB - (at ARI)
Pollard is the RB6 in fantasy, playing 64% of the snaps per week. He's averaged 25 touches and 95.5 total yards while ranking first in expected fantasy points per game. His efficiency numbers are lagging, which has me slightly concerned. Among 48 qualifying running backs, he's 43rd in missed tackles forced per attempt and 32nd in yards after contact per attempt. I'm not sounding the alarm yet, but this is something to monitor. Arizona has put a tough run defense on the field weekly. They have the tenth-lowest missed tackles allowed per attempt, the eighth-lowest yards after contact per attempt allowed, and the eighth-lowest yards per carry allowed to gap runs (Pollard 64% gap). Week 3 Positional Value: RB1

CeeDee Lamb Note

Lamb leads the team with a 27% Target share and a 36.5% air-yard share as the WR12 in fantasy. Arizona has utilized zone coverage on 61% of their corner's snaps. Lamb last season ranked 14th in receiving grade and seventh in YPRR against zone. Against zone coverage, Lamb leads the team with a 34.2% Target share, and he's second behind only Brandin Cooks (36.4%) in first-read share (34.8%). Lamb will run about 75% of his routes against Jalen Thompson (2022: 68.1% catch rate and 103.2 passer rating in slot coverage). Week 3 Positional Value: Elite WR1

Michael Gallup Note

Gallup has become an afterthought in this passing attack. Against zone coverage, he has a 10.5% Target share and a 20.4% air-yard share (0.43 YPRR). Gallup has a 13% first-read share (fourth on the team) against zone. Week 3 Positional Value: Must-sit WR5/6

Jake Ferguson Note

Ferguson has only a 46.2% route run per team dropback rate. He's seen a 15.9% Target share with a 33% TPRR. Ferguson leads the NFL with seven red zone targets. His touchdown equity in this offense is massive. Last year, Arizona allowed the most receiving touchdowns to tight ends. This season, they have given up the third-most receiving yards and fifth-highest yards per reception to the position. Week 3 Positional Value: TE2 matchup-based streaming option
