Week 3 PPR Rankings

A.J. Brown Note

Brown clocks in as the WR15 in fantasy, with elite efficiency metrics littering his profile. He's second in target share, 14th in target per route run rate, and fifth in yards per route run. He will destroy Kendall Fuller and William Jackson on nearly 73% of his routes this week. Fuller and Jackson have combined to allow a 66.7% catch rate, 138 passer rating, and two touchdowns (21 targets). Brown is a top-five fantasy wide receiver this week.

Miles Sanders Note

Sanders is the RB13 in fantasy after averaging 17.5 touches and 95.5 total yards after two games. He's led the team in rushing share and route run rate in each game, although the route rate was diluted out to three players in Week 2. He's 16th in opportunity share and 18th in weight opportunities among running backs. With minimal pass game involvement (8.3% target share, 31st), his production and source of fantasy value is on the ground. This looks like another plus-matchup for Sanders as a solid RB2. Washington has the sixth-highest rush EPA and 13th-highest explosive run rate allowed. They are 28th or worse in adjusted line yards, second-level yards, and open field yards allowed. Sanders is running behind an offensive line that is top-nine in each of those metrics.

Dallas Goedert Note

I've said this before, but it's worth repeating. Dallas Goedert would be discussed in the same breath as Travis Kelce and Mark Andrews if he received the same volume. He's 14th in target share and 26th in targets per route run, but he's fourth in yards per route run and first in YAC. Pick nearly any efficiency metric for the tight end position, and you'll find Goedert hovering around the top of the list. Washington was eighth in DVOA against the position last year (25th in 2022), but they allowed the ninth-most receiving yards to tight ends. Goedert is a mid TE1.

DeVonta Smith Note

Smith showed some life in Week 2 after flopping in the season's first game. He saw a 22.6% target share with 19.5% of the air yards. Brown still hogged the air yards with a 38.7% share against the Vikings. Smith also turned in 2.11 yards per route run. With Brown still the unquestioned alpha of this receiver room, Smith is a volatile WR3/WR4 who will run about 74% of his routes against Fuller and Jackson.

Kenneth Gainwell Note

Gainwell isn't anything more than an upside stash or dart throw flex. He's only averaged five touches and 25 total yards per game. His 26.2% snap share and 22.8% opportunity share are too low to take a chance on in lineups.

Boston Scott Note

Scott is barely rosterable, even in deep leagues. He's the third man up in this backfield with only a 21.3% snap share and 15.8% opportunity share. Without an injury, he's a zero in fantasy waiting to happen.

Quez Watkins Note

Despite the monstrous long touchdown in Week 2, Watkins isn't playable. He's seen two targets all year. He's the clear sixth option in this passing attack.
