Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 3 PPR Rankings

Travis Kelce Note

Kelce played 64% of the snaps last week, and he still led the team with a 22.0% Target share. He had a 36% TPRR and 1.04 YPRR as he drew nine targets. Hopefully, another week post-injury, we see Kelce closer to a full snap share, but even on limited reps, he's still a lock for eight or more targets. The lesson is that if Kelce is active, you play him. End of story. Week 3 Positional Value: Must-start always

Isiah Pacheco Note

Pacheco missed Wednesday's practice (hamstring). We'll see if he can get in some limited sessions later this week. I'll update his outlook and this backfield on Friday. If Pacheco can't go, it could be the Jerick McKinnon or (gulp) Clyde Edwards-Helaire show. Week 3 Positional Value: TBD

Skyy Moore Note

I wish I could recommend Moore as a start after his 54-yard scamper last week, but I can't. He only has a 63.3% route run per team dropback rate, a 10% Target share, and an 18% air yard share. Moore is tied for fifth on the team with Noah Gray with an 11.1% first-read share. There's nothing here to twist or turn to talk yourself into playing Moore. Could he go off against this burnable secondary? Yep. It's possible, but it's not probable. Week 3 Positional Value: Must-sit

Kadarius Toney Note

As soon as Toney gets back on the field, he's dealing with another injury (toe). He missed practice on Wednesday. Toney is a walking injury report, so I'll update his status on Friday because he's no sure thing to play in Week 3. Week 3 Positional Value: TBD

Marquez Valdes-Scantling Note

Valdes-Scantling is a must-sit. He's been supplanted as the team's deep threat (13.8 aDOT). Last week he had a pretty matchup against a team that struggled against the deep ball and he did nothing. Week 3 Positional Value: Must-sit

Jerick McKinnon Note

With Pacheco dinged up (hamstring), McKinnon could see an elevated role if he sits. Check back on Friday for my update on this backfield. Week 3 Positional Value: TBD

Justin Watson Note
Justin Watson photo 181. Justin Watson WR - (vs . CHI)
I know this is a deep pull, but hear me out. Watson leads the team with a 24.6 aDOT. I understand he only has a 38.9% route run per team dropback rate. He has a 10% Target share and a 23% TPRR. Watson has a 67% TPRR on deep routes and leads the team with four deep targets. Playing Watson in a deep league is praying for him to connect on one or two deep shots from Mahomes, which can happen. Chicago has allowed the seventh-highest passer rating, 13th-highest adjusted completion rate, and the 11th-highest yards per attempt on deep targets this season. Week 3 Positional Value: deep league flex or desperation flex play
