Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 3 Half PPR Rankings
Corey Davis Note

After a great Week 1 performance, Davis was bailed out by a touchdown to salvage his Week 2 performance where Tannehill threw four touchdowns. The one Davis did snag was impressive, and we did talk about the volume concerns in that game, which came true when Tannehill threw just 22 passes. The Vikings are allowing more fantasy points per game than the Jaguars did, and I'm not talking about just the wide receivers. As for the receivers, the Vikings have allowed a massive 53.1 PPR points per game to them, which ranks as the second most in the league behind only the Seahawks. That's what happens when you flip your cornerback depth chart upside down. The combination of Mike Hughes and Holton Hill have allowed 19-of-24 passing for 233 yards and two touchdowns through two weeks, and they're the ones Davis will see much of the day. Much of that was done by Aaron Rodgers and the Packers receivers, but Tannehill has proven to be playing at a high level, so there's little reason to doubt he can get the ball to Davis. If Brown remains out, Davis is in the WR3 conversation. If Brown can suit up, Davis might still be the preferred play (depending on how limited Brown is), but his floor would drop him into the WR4 range.

Adam Humphries Note

Suddenly, he's tied for the most targets (13) on the team. He caught 5-of-6 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown against the Jaguars and is suddenly back on the radar with A.J. Brown missing in action. When the Titans opponent goes three-wide, it moves Mike Hughes into the slot. He's a former first-round pick from 2018 who's talented and at 5-foot-10 and 189 pounds, he should be agile enough to hang alongside Humphries. It's not a must-avoid matchup for those who are looking for a last-minute PPR option, as Hughes has allowed 5-of-6 passing in the slot for 74 yards through two weeks. If Brown remains out, we should have five-plus targets for Humphries, making him a decent floor WR5/6, but he lacks a ceiling.
