Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 3 Half PPR Rankings
Tre'Quan Smith Note

Smith finally broke out last week and put together a dominant performance. He saw seven targets and was able to haul in five of them for 86 yards. Even with Brees struggling, Smith put up a great game and looked to finally step into the spotlight that many have been expecting from him for the past couple of seasons. In this matchup against Green Bay, Smith can be viewed as a low-end WR3/high-end WR4 that should continue to see a significant target share moving forward while Michael Thomas is out.

Emmanuel Sanders Note

It hasn't been a great start to the relationship between Sanders and Brees, as Sanders is averaging just 4.1 yards per target. He saw just three targets with Michael Thomas out of the lineup, making fantasy owners want to pull out their hair. Sanders is playing 40 percent of his snaps in the slot, which means he'll see a mixture of all Packers cornerbacks. If there's been a trend over the last two years, it's that the Packers are hurt deep down the field by wide receivers, and that's evidenced by the 14.95 yards per reception this year and 15.84 yards per reception last year. Sanders has an average depth of target of just 7.5 yards, which is among the lowest in the league. This doesn't seem like a matchup that fits his strengths very well, making him a mediocre WR4/5, and that's with Thomas out of the lineup.
