Despite all the Steelers receivers being healthy last week, Ebron saw a season-high eight targets against the Titans. Sure, it helps that Roethlisberger threw 49 passes, but it's still a good sign for Ebron. The 42 routes he ran last week ranked second among tight ends, which is a great sign for production. The Ravens are a fairly dominant defense against almost all positions, but they're simply average against tight ends, allowing the 14th-most fantasy points to them. The 7.06 yards per target is close to the league average, while the touchdown every 15.7 targets is right there as well. They've allowed four tight ends hit double-digit PPR points against them, though it did require touchdowns for two of them. The concern here is Roethlisberger's struggles in Baltimore over the last five years, but Ebron's role is growing and he seems locked into five-plus targets. Consider him a mid-to-high-end TE2.Fun fact I found while doing research this week: Akers has averaged 4.15 yards after contact, which is one of the best marks in the NFL, though it is a very small sample size (26 carries). Henderson appears to have a stranglehold on the job, though don't get too comfy as a fantasy manager, as continually on a short leash. Still, his weighted opportunity is up there with guys like Jonathan Taylor. Of the production the Dolphins have allowed to skill-position players, 40.4 percent of it has gone to running backs, which is the third-highest mark in the league. But here's one of the craziest stats you might read this week: The Dolphins have faced just one running back all season who's totaled more than 11 carries. That running back was Chris Carson, who went for 80 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries. Still, the Dolphins have allowed at least 93 rushing yards to running backs in 5-of-6 games this year. If Henderson gets volume, he'll produce like a high-end RB2, as the Dolphins have allowed the third-most fantasy points per opportunity to running backs, behind only the Packers and Raiders. He's totaled at least 14 opportunities in five of the last six games, so we must assume he'll be in that range again, so start him as an RB2 until McVay gives us a reason not to, but I'm not touching him in DFS cash games. After the Week 1 game where Brown had 22 opportunities, he's finished with 11 or less in five of the last six games. He hasn't been forgotten, as he's still received at least seven carries in 6-of-7 games and has 19 targets on the season, so he can be thought of as a last-minute RB4 replacement. Akers hasn't had a touch the last two weeks, so it's hard to recommend him to even be rostered at this point.
