Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 12 Rankings

Tony Jones Jr. Note

Alvin Kamara will miss another game with a knee injury, and Ingram is dealing with a knee injury of his own. Ingram practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday. Jones, who just played his first game since Week 4 after recovering from an ankle injury, would be ticketed for a heavy workload if Ingram couldn't answer the bell, although significant touch volume wouldn't necessarily mean worthwhile fantasy numbers. The Saints face the Bills, and the Buffalo run defense has been tough this year aside from maulings by Derrick Henry and Jonathan Taylor. Henry ran for 143 yards and three touchdowns against Buffalo in Week 6, and Taylor trampled the Bills for 204 total yards and five touchdowns last week. Monitor this situation carefully in the run-up to this Thanksgiving-night affair.

Tre'Quan Smith Note

Smith has 9-108-1 over his last two games. He's seen 15 targets over those two contests, amounting to a healthy 19.7% target share. The growing role is encouraging, but Smith hasn't topped 64 receiving yards in any of the five games he's played in 2021. He's a high-end WR5 against the Bills.

Marquez Callaway Note

Callaway has scored a touchdown in three consecutive games, but TDs have been the only source of fantasy value for him lately. During his three-game TD streak, Callaway has had 14 targets, six catches, and 88 receiving yards. He's been held to 37 or fewer yards in each of his last five games. Callaway's modest target/catch volume is concerning, and on Thursday he's going to run most of his routes against Bills CB Tre'Davious White, one of the top cover men in the league. Callaway is the WR53 this week. At $5,000 on DraftKings, he offers only contrarian appeal.

Deonte Harris Note

Going into Week 11, Harris had amassed 18-295-1 receiving and 2-28-0 rushing in his previous five games. He had 2-11-0 against the Eagles last week on five targets. Harris can fly, but this is a fragile production profile. He lands at WR59 in the Week 11 rankings.

Juwan Johnson Note

Adam Trautman had been emerging as a fantasy-relevant TE in recent weeks, catching 14-137-1 over his last three games, but he sprained his MCL in Week 11 and is expected to miss 4-6 games. Juwan Johnson is probably the Saints' best pass-catching TE with Trautman out, but he was a healthy scratch in Week 11 behind Nick Vannett and Garret Griffin. Avoid this mess.
