Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 13 Half PPR Rankings

Najee Harris Note

Harris had a season-low eight carries against the Bengals last week and produced only 37 yards from scrimmage. It was a rare misfire for the rookie workhorse, who's still the RB8 in fantasy points per game. Harris also had a modest workload in Week 11, with 12-39-1 rushing and 5-20-0 receiving. That ended a streak of five straight games in which Harris had more than 20 carries. With the Steelers at 5-5-1, fighting for their playoff lives and facing a critical divisional game against the archrival Ravens, it seems unlikely that Harris will see another moderate workload. He's the RB8 this week and a reasonable value at $7,700 on DraftKings.

Diontae Johnson Note

Johnson saw a season-high 14 targets against the Bengals last week, turning them into 9-95-0. It was the eighth time this season that Johnson has seen double-digit targets. He's averaging 80.9 receiving yards per game. Johnson is one of fantasy football's most bankable assets. He won't have an easy individual matchup this weekend against Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey, but Johnson is still a low-end WR1. He's a worthwhile DraftKings cash-game anchor at $6,800.

Chase Claypool Note

Investors are no doubt frustrated by Claypool's lack of touchdowns. After scoring nine TDs as a rookie, Claypool has hit pay dirt just once in 2021. But Claypool has been more efficient in other departments. In 2020, he averaged 14.1 yards per catch and 8.0 yards per target. In 2021, he's averaging 16.4 yards per catch and 8.8 yards per target. He's also been playing through turf toe, so credit Claypool for toughness. He's the WR26 but not a particularly good DraftKings value at $6,000.

Pat Freiermuth Note

Last Sunday, Freiermuth scored a garbage-time touchdown with under 3 minutes left in the Steelers' 41-10 loss to the Bengals, but a garbage-time touchdown is a touchdown just the same. It gave the rookie from Penn State his fifth TD in his last five games. Freiermuth has had at least four receptions in each of his last six games. He's a low-end TE1 against a Baltimore defense that's giving up 9.5 fantasy points per game to tight ends.
