Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 14 PPR Rankings
Leonard Fournette photo 6. Leonard Fournette RB - (vs . LAC)
We all know Christian McCaffrey is like running back/wide receiver combo, right? Did you know Fournette has 65 receptions, which is just 10 off what McCaffrey has? After the Jaguars gave him just 15 touches in Week 11, they vowed to get the ball into his hands moving forward. They didn't lie, as he's racked up 56 touches over the last two weeks. The Chargers have been a mediocre run defense this year, and they've faced an average of 28.5 running back touches despite their opponents averaging a league-low 57.3 plays per game. That's because the Chargers opponents have run the ball on 46.1 percent of plays against them, which is the fifth-highest percentage in the league. Because of that, we've watched nine different running backs finish as the RB14 or better against them, including the RB1 performance to James Conner back in Week 6. You're playing Fournette as a rock-solid RB1 with the volume he's seen, and this matchup does nothing to move you off him.

D.J. Chark photo 33. D.J. Chark WR - (vs . LAC)
It's so hard to tell what's good or what's bad for Chark nowadays, as Foles targeted him 15 times in their first game, leading us to believe he'd raise Chark's value. Over the last two weeks, in plus matchups, he finished with just seven catches for 85 yards in the two games combined. He has Minshew back under center, which is likely a good thing, but the matchup against the Chargers is a tough one. They've allowed just one 100-yard receiver all season, and that was Kenny Golladay all the way back in Week 2. In fact, they've allowed just six wide receivers to finish better than the WR29 all season. That's a bit ridiculous. There have been just six receivers who've hit the 13-PPR-point threshold, which ranks as the second-best mark in the league, behind only the Patriots who've allowed five. You're likely going to see Casey Hayward cover Chark much of the day, and that's not a good thing. He's allowed just 20-of-39 passing for 258 yards in his coverage this year, and though he allowed two touchdowns to Courtland Sutton last week, he was right there where he was supposed to be in coverage, but Sutton just played out of his mind. You should dial back expectations for Chark in this tough matchup, as he should be considered a high-end WR3 rather than the borderline WR1 we thought he was.

Dede Westbrook photo 78. Dede Westbrook WR - (vs . LAC)
Westbrook has averaged 8.5 targets per game over the past two weeks, and last week he scored his first touchdown since Week 1. He has a good matchup against the Chargers, but the Jaguars receiving corps is pretty crowded. Consider him a high-floor WR4.

Chris Conley photo 116. Chris Conley WR - (vs . LAC)
His seven-plus target streak ended at five games in Week 13, though he still saw five targets and finished with four catches for 57 yards. He's been a solid bye week filler over the last month-and-a-half, but you shouldn't be trusting him in the first week of the fantasy playoffs, as the Chargers are about as tough as it gets. There have been just nine receivers all year who've been able to finish as top-36 options against them, which obviously amounts to less than one per game. The only receivers who've been able to hit double-digit PPR points without seeing a minimum of seven targets were Courtland Sutton and DeVante Parker, two receivers who've been every-week starters. They both needed to score touchdowns to get there. Conley has scored just twice all season. It does help that Chark will likely get Casey Hayward in near shadow coverage, but it's no time to get cute against a defense allowing the fourth-fewest points per game to wide receivers. He's just a high-end WR5.

Nick O'Leary photo 181. Nick O'Leary TE - (vs . LAC)
The idea behind O'Leary was good last week and he did see four targets, but the Jaguars quarterbacks struggled, and it led to a big disappointment. Despite being with the team for just the last two weeks, O'Leary has seen eight targets in the two games, as it's necessary with all the injuries to their tight end unit. Fortunately, you don't have to consider him this week, as the Chargers are one of the better teams in the league against tight ends and they just got Derwin James back last week. Carry on.
