Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 14 Half PPR Rankings
Josh Jacobs photo 17. Josh Jacobs RB - (vs . TEN)
We talked about the win/loss splits with Jacobs last week and they continued in Week 13. For whatever reason, he is not used in the passing-game in games they fall behind. There was one play where Jacobs went out into the flat and was essentially doing jumping jacks to try and get Carr's attention, as he was uncovered. The Raiders are underdogs in this game, but it's a winnable one, so we shouldn't automatically assume the win/loss splits apply. The Titans had been a really good run defense under Mike Vrabel, though they've slipped a bit since Week 8. Over their last four games, they've allowed 414 yards on 96 carries (4.31 yards per carry) with five rushing touchdowns. Running backs have been targeted quite a bit against the Titans, as the 8.3 targets per game ranks as the second-most. There have been just seven running backs who've finished better than the RB24 against the Titans, which is not great odds, but it's possible that Jacobs is catching them at the right time. You're not considering sitting Jacobs, who's seen at least 17 touches in eight of the last nine games, so plug him in as a solid RB2 who has RB1 upside if he's used in the passing game.

Darren Waller photo 50. Darren Waller TE - (vs . TEN)
As expected, Waller walked right back into the role he had earlier this season with Hunter Renfrow on the shelf. He totaled nine targets, hauling seven of them in for 100 yards. It was his third 100-yard performance of the year. He's the only tight end in the NFL that can say that. The Titans have allowed four different tight ends to rack up 70-plus yards against them this season, including Jack Doyle's 6/73/1 last week. Even outside of those 70-plus yard games, there've been four other tight ends who've hit pay dirt against them, which has provided a stable floor. Knowing how many injuries they have in their secondary right now, it's going to be tough for the Titans to devote more attention to stopping Waller. He belongs in lineups as a high-end TE1 every week and this matchup is no different.

Tyrell Williams photo 77. Tyrell Williams WR - (vs . TEN)
You would've thought that Williams would see an increase in targets with Hunter Renfrow on the shelf, but that didn't happen. He's now seen in-between 4-6 targets in each of his last six games and has averaged just 2.7 receptions per game during that time. He has topped 48 yards just twice since Week 1, which hardly suggests he's a must-start every week. In fact, you need to find a reason to play him. Do we have that reason against the Titans? Maybe. It seems like their top cornerback Adoree Jackson is 50/50 at best this week, and they were already down Malcolm Butler (injured reserve) and LeShaun Sims (ankle). That would leave a trio of Logan Ryan (who mans the slot in three-wide), Tye Smith, and Kareem Orr at cornerback. Smith is a former fifth-round pick from 2015 who's played 289 career snaps, while Orr is an undrafted rookie who played his first snaps last week. When healthy, the Titans were an average matchup for receivers, but if Jackson is forced to miss this game, Williams is likely to get back into the high-end WR4 conversation.
