Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 7 Half PPR Rankings
James Conner Note

Conner continues to get the large workload for Pittsburgh and he's delivering with it. Last week, Conner had 20 carries for over 100 yards and a score. While he's losing some touches to Snell and Anthony McFarland Jr., he's still worth plugging into your lineup as a solid low-end RB1 every single week. This week is no different against a defense that is currently the 9th easiest matchup for opposing fantasy RBs.

Chase Claypool Note

Claypool has been dominant the past few weeks and he's consistently finding the end zone. However, there are serious questions about what his role in this offense will look like with Johnson back on the field. Claypool comes with ridiculous upside, but it's going to be impossible to trust him as anything more than a FLEX play this week. He can absolutely go off, but he's almost certainly going to see his snaps decrease with Johnson back in the lineup. That makes him a bit more of a risky play, which bumps him down the rankings a bit.

JuJu Smith-Schuster Note

Juju has been a disappointment the past few games with the emergence of Claypool beside him, but this is too good of a matchup to not plug Smith-Schuster into your lineup as a high-end WR3 with upside.

Diontae Johnson Note

Johnson appears to be trending towards suiting up in this game, which creates ripple effects throughout the rest of the receiving corps. Johnson's going to be hard to trust to plug into your lineup for the first time in several weeks, but he can be viewed as a high-upside WR3 start if he's fully healthy.

James Washington Note

He's seen 18 targets over the last three weeks, but those games were played without Diontae Johnson for much of them. Knowing how well Claypool has played, it's likely Washington who sees the largest dip in snaps with Johnson back. But it is crazy to see the target totals from these four wide receivers to this point: Smith-Schuster 28, Johnson 26, Washington 26, and Claypool 24. Knowing the Steelers don't run 4WR sets, it's Washington who's the odd man out.

Eric Ebron Note

We've been on a roller coaster with Ebron's targets through five games: 2, 5, 7, 6, 4. Those are the totals to this point, and it's tough to see that number rising with all four wide receivers healthy. Still, 22 targets over the last four weeks is something we can work with when it comes to streamers. Despite missing a week due to bye, he ranks 21st among tight ends in routes run, which should keep up considering the Steelers don't run 4WR sets. The matchup with the Titans is a good one, as they've already allowed four top-16 tight end performances through five games, and they haven't played top-tier talent. Darren Fells, Noah Fant, Tyler Eifert, Kyle Rudolph, and Dawson Knox... that's the competition they've played, yet they've still allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per target to tight ends (2.23). Ebron makes sense as a low-end TE1 streamer this week.
