Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 14 Half PPR Rankings

Roschon Johnson Note

The last time we saw this backfield in action, Johnson was the clear leader, playing 74% of the snaps with 15 touches and 75 total yards. Will that repeat in Week 14? I have no clue. Johnson's heavy involvement against the Vikings could easily be the fallout of the Bears trying to help Fields against the blitz. Minnesota has led the NFL in blitz rate for most of the season, so running out your best pass-protecting back for a ton of snaps makes sense. Johnson allowed a sack against Minnesota, which is the only sack allowed all season. Among 58 qualifying backs, Johnson ranks 32nd in missed tackles forced per attempt and 33rd in yards after contact per attempt. Johnson will have a tough day on the ground against a Lions' run defense that, since Week 8, has allowed the ninth-lowest missed tackles per attempt, the third-lowest yards after contact per attempt, and ranks 15th in yards per carry allowed to zone runs (Johnson 59.3% zone). I will not be surprised if Johnson plays a bell-cow role this week, but I also would not be shocked if this becomes a three-way committee and no one from this backfield is playable. Week 14 Positional Value: RB3 / Worrisome flex play

Khalil Herbert Note

After seeing Herbert's usage in Week 12, there's no way anyone can feel comfy about tossing him into a fantasy lineup. Herbert saw his snap share drop to 21% with only eight touches and 38 total yards. This could be related to Minnesota's love of the blitz and Chicago's leaning on Johnson as a pass protector, but it also could be the backfield shifting in Johnson's direction. There's no way to know which is the truth. The reality is that with this uncertainty surrounding Herbert's workload and the matchup being terrible for him, Herbert is a sit. Since Week 8, Detroit has allowed the ninth-lowest missed tackles per attempt and the third-lowest yards after contact per attempt. Week 14 Positional Value: Sit
