Week 4 Half PPR Rankings

Derrick Henry Note

Henry is extremely game script-sensitive these days. In the Titans' two losses, Henry has played 48% and 38% of the snaps, averaging 12 touches and 69.5 total yards. In their one win, Henry logged 71% of the snaps with 28 touches and 95 total yards. The Bengals' offense will determine how many snaps Henry plays this week. Henry hasn't looked like the Henry of old this season. Among 59 qualifying running backs, he ranks 36th in missed tackles forced per attempt and 32nd in yards after contact per attempt. His offensive line isn't helping him at all. Among that same sample of rushers, Henry has seen the 15th-lowest yards before contact per attempt. If Tennessee can keep this game close, Henry could post some nice rushing stats. The Bengals have allowed the fourth-highest explosive run rate and the 14th-highest yards after contact per attempt. Cincinnati has allowed the eighth-highest yards per carry and 11th-highest success rate to gap runs (Henry 52.9% gap). Week 4 Positional Value: low-end RB1

DeAndre Hopkins Note

Hopkins has a 28.9% Target share and a 37.5% air yard share, which are fantastic usage numbers. His efficiency numbers are more in line with WR3 production, as he's 33rd in receiving grade and 30th in YPRR. Hopkins has two red zone targets so far this season. Hopkins will run about 67% of his routes against Chidobe Awuzie (80% catch rate and 135.4 passer rating) and Cam Taylor-Britt (56.3% catch rate and 83.6 passer rating). The Bengals have allowed only two receiving touchdowns to wide receivers this season (ninth-fewest). Week 4 Positional Value: Volume-driven WR3

Tyjae Spears Note

In the Titans' two losses, Spears has averaged 55% of the snaps, but the volume hasn't followed with the playing time. He's averaged only six touches and 13.5 total yards in those games. Spears is best left on the bench. His value remains only as a stash or handcuff. Week 4 Positional Value: Handcuff only

Chigoziem Okonkwo Note

Small sample size efficiency hype at the tight end position looks to be failing us again in 2023. Last year, it was Albert Okwuegbunam that led us astray. This season, so far, it's looking like Oknokwo will be it. Oknokwo has a 12.0% Target share, a 13.1% first-read share, and only 0.68 YPRR this year. He hasn't drawn an endzone or red zone target this season. The matchup is nice for Oknokwo this week, so he does fall into the streaming category. The Bengals have been a good matchup for tight ends over the last three years. This season, they have allowed the seventh-most receptions, the tenth-highest yards per reception, and the sixth-most fantasy points to tight ends. Week 4 Positional Value: Matchup-based TE2 streaming option
