The only wide receivers who've seen 40-plus targets and averaged more fantasy points per target than Claypool are Justin Jefferson, D.K. Metcalf, Tyreek Hill, and Adam Thielen. He's seen eight-plus targets in each of his last four games and has finished with at least 14.9 PPR points in each of them. Will Jimmy Smith be back for the Ravens? His loss is a major one, as he's allowed just 0.90 PPR points per target thrown his way, which is easily the lowest mark in the NFL. It's always interesting to see a team that targets their receivers as much as the Steelers do, go up against a team like the Ravens, who've faced a wide receiver target on just 53.8 percent of attempts (third-lowest percentage in NFL). The Ravens have allowed just five wide receiver touchdowns all season. They've also allowed a minuscule 11.92 yards per reception to them, so this matchup actually benefits Johnson's role more than it does Claypool's. If he doesn't score in this game, it could be a disappointing one, and the Ravens have allowed a touchdown just once every 38.4 targets to wide receivers, which makes them the toughest team in the NFL to score against. You're still starting him, as it does seem less than likely that Jimmy Smith plays but understand it's a tough matchup. He should be considered a low-end WR2/high-end WR3.

Chase Claypool scores in Week 11

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool caught 4-of-8 targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in a 27-3 win over the Jaguars in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact

Claypool caught a 31-yard touchdown in the second quarter, giving him 10 total touchdowns on the year. The rookie has emerged as an impressive weapon for a Pittsburgh offense that has been throwing more frequently as the season goes on. He will be a solid WR2 in fantasy in Week 12 against the Ravens.
