Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 14 PPR Rankings
Courtland Sutton photo 36. Courtland Sutton WR - (at HOU)
He's playing like a miniature Calvin Johnson this year, and I don't throw that name around to just anyone. If you have the chance, go look up his targets on NFL Game Pass, YouTube, or something. He's getting it done with every quarterback who comes under center. He saw just five targets against the Chargers, which is the most concerning part, as it was just the second time all season he's seen less than seven targets. It was the first game with Lock under center, so hopefully it was just him checking down a bit more in a tough spot against the Chargers defense. The Texans secondary is not one to fear, though it's worth noting how they treated Julian Edelman for the first three quarters last week when they double-teamed him all over the field. That's the only concern for Sutton, though it's not enough to consider sitting him against a team that's allowed 12 top-24 performances to wide receivers. The Giants, Bucs, and Vikings are the only teams to allow more 15-plus point receivers. Sutton should be locked-in as a WR2 who may have some ups and downs due to quarterback play, but he's overcome them time-and-time again. Sutton is one of just three receivers (Michael Thomas, DeVante Parker) who've totaled at least 55 yards in 10-of-12 games.

Phillip Lindsay photo 40. Phillip Lindsay RB - (at HOU)
The heavy workload for Lindsay continued last week, as he out-touched Freeman 20-9, though it is worth noting that Freeman out-snapped him 31-25. Neither of them was particularly efficient in that game, but it's good to see Lock target his running backs more than Brandon Allen did. We saw 7-of-28 pass attempts go to the running backs, which is a phenomenal 25 percent target share. The Texans have allowed at least 139 yards on the ground to running backs in each of the last three games they played, but the question is: Can the Broncos run the ball enough to take advantage of the Texans weakness? On the year, opponents have only averaged 20.3 rushing attempts per game against them, which is one of the lower marks in the league, and doesn't bode well for timeshares, though as we've seen the last few weeks, this may not be that. The area the Texans have been destroyed most by running backs is through the air, as they've allowed a league-high 202.1 PPR points through the air. That amounts to 16.8 PPR points per game through the air alone. We don't have a big enough sample size from Lock to say with any certainty he'll continue to target the running backs, but from what we did see, it's a plus for Lindsay. Knowing he's received 14-20 opportunities in each of the last three games, Lindsay should be played as a solid RB2 against the team allowing the fourth-most points per opportunity to running backs.

Noah Fant photo 120. Noah Fant TE - (at HOU)
Fant has 19 receiving yards over the past two games, and that in itself should scare you away from using him in a fantasy playoff matchup, even against a weak Texans pass defense.
