Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 7 PPR Rankings
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.

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.

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.
