Week 18 Rankings

Josh Jacobs Note

The Raiders have no more meaningful games on the docket, so we may not see Jacobs in a 75% or higher snap role this week. Last week he played his lowest snap count since Week 8 (67%) with 21 touches and 95 total yards. Jacobs currently leads the NFL in rushing yards (1,608), and the closest competitor to steal the title would be Nick Chubb (1,448). Jacobs could get a limited workload this week, especially with it not taking much to put that crown out of Chubb's reach. Jacobs is still in play for large-field tournaments but won't make it on any of my single-entry or three-max builds. Jacobs is fourth in weighted opportunities, tenth in juke rate, and second in evaded tackles. Since Week 12, the Chiefs have been second in rushing success rate, 12th in EPA per rush, and 15th in explosive run rate allowed.

Jakobi Meyers Note

With Damien Harris returning last week, the Patriots' backfield has reverted to a split workload situation, so Meyers is the only Patriot I'm investing in. In the ten games Meyers has played at least 80% of the snaps, he has had a 25.4% target share, a 28.9% air yard share, an 85.7% route run rate, and 2.18 yards per route run. Meyers has two red zone targets and two touchdowns over his last two games. Meyers ranks 21st out of 82 qualifying wide receivers in open rate. Meyers will run about 69% of his routes against Taron Johnson (72.7% catch rate, 108.7 passer rating). Since Week 12, the Bills have allowed the tenth-most fantasy points per game to slot receivers. Meyers was limited in practice all week (shoulder). He's been listed as questionable. I expect him to be a full-go.

Hunter Renfrow Note

Renfrow is someone to consider if you're rolling 20-150 lineups. Josh McDaniels has cemented his status as a fake sharp this season utilizing 11 personnel on 65.1% of their snaps. This didn't look any better last week with Renfrow (49.3%). This has regulated one of the team's best wide receivers to part-time status all year. Renfrow has drawn a 14.9% target share and two red zone targets over his last three games. He will run about 77% of his routes against L'Jarius Snead (70.7% catch rate, 92.2 passer rating).

Austin Hooper Note

I know. You were expecting Chigziem Okonkwo's name here, right. Sadly Okonkwo only ran eight routes last week, while Hooper saw a beautiful 66.7% route run rate and 15.8% target share (six targets). Hooper is a fantastic contrarian play. Jacksonville is 31st in DVOA, allowing the tenth-highest catch rate, third-highest yards per reception, and fifth-most receiving yards to tight ends.

Brandon Bolden Note

If Jacobs is limited, this does bring Bolden into the GPP discussion. Last week Zamir White was inactive as he was dealing with an injury. If his practice reports are solid this week, you can throw him into the same bucket as Bolden. Last week Bolden saw his highest snap count (21%) since Week 3. Bolden isn't a sexy name, but he could play meaningful snaps this week with pass-game involvement. Last year he was 12th in true yards per carry, third in yards per route run, and first in fantasy points per opportunity. The Chiefs have been tough on the ground, but they are giving to receiving backs. Kansas City has allowed the second-most receiving yards and most receptions to running backs.
