Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 14 PPR Rankings
Melvin Gordon photo 16. Melvin Gordon RB - (at JAC)
This backfield split over the last four weeks has gone like this: Gordon 89 opportunities (76 carries, 13 targets), Ekeler 55 opportunities (32 carries, 23 targets). Knowing that targets are worth an average of 2.3 times as much as carries in PPR formats, their opportunity is closer than it seems, and more like a 55/45 split. It's Gordon's area of dominance this week, though. The Jaguars have been straight-up dominated against the run over the last four games, allowing 638 yards and 106 carries (6.02 yards per carry) and seven rushing touchdowns. They've allowed multiple rushing touchdowns in each of the last three games, as the loss of Marcell Dareus has proven to be too much. Knowing Gordon's hit 20-plus carries in three of the last four games and that he's gotten 15 of the 20 goal-line carries in that time, he should be locked into lineups as an RB1 this week. Knowing that Ekeler's opportunity is worth more than most think, his role shouldn't be needed as much in this contest.

Keenan Allen photo 24. Keenan Allen WR - (at JAC)
After going through a seven-game touchdown draught, Allen has scored in each of his last two games. He still hasn't topped 71 yards since way back in Week 3 but the fact that he's racked up 22 receptions over the last three games is a step in the right direction. The Jaguars have proven to be a tough matchup for wide receivers despite losing Jalen Ramsey. They've allowed the 13th-fewest points per game to the position as a whole and Allen is slated to see the cornerback who has arguably played better than anyone else on the team, D.J. Hayden (if he plays). On 31 targets in the slot, he's allowed just 20 receptions for 179 yards and no touchdowns. Allen runs nearly 55 percent of his routes from the slot, which is why that's so significant. We've watched the Jaguars slow down some of the better slot-heavy receivers in the game, as Chris Godwin posted 4/50/0, Tyler Boyd 5/55/0, and Jamison Crowder 3/24/0 have struggled to get much going against them. There have been nine top-24 performances against the Jaguars, so they're not unbeatable or anything, but it is a tougher matchup than most realize. Allen should be considered a middling WR2 for this matchup in what should be a run-heavy game for the Chargers offense. He would receive a big upgrade if Hayden is forced to miss the game with a neck injury that had him leave last week's game, so stay tuned.

Austin Ekeler photo 44. Austin Ekeler RB - (at JAC)
The Jaguars have allowed the sixth-fewest points through the air to running backs, which is where Ekeler has been doing his damage as of late. He still deserves middling RB3 consideration, but his ceiling is likely a bit lower in this game.

Hunter Henry photo 47. Hunter Henry TE - (at JAC)
Henry didn't play for four weeks, and he's still a top ten tight end. He has at least 60 receiving yards in all but one game, and he's been a huge steal if you held on to him or had the foresight to grab him while he was hurt. He's a strong TE1.

Mike Williams photo 75. Mike Williams WR - (at JAC)
Williams has at least 69 receiving yards in each of his past five games, but he's only averaged three receptions per game in that span and hasn't scored a touchdown all season. Expect more of the same in Week 14, making him a fairly risky WR4.
