What a game on Thursday Night Football! Overtime and everything! Did you see the play where they almost scored a touchdown? Amazing. Russell Wilson and Matt Ryan battling it out on the gridiron, former defensive player of the year Stephon Gilmore with the game-winning pass break up. That’s Amazon Prime football at its finest. 

For anyone that had to suffer through the entirety of last night’s game, here is a little football candy for your brain in the form of covering the snap counts for every position player on every team.  You deserve it.




WR: Four weeks in a row and it’s been the same - Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk play full snap shares, they use too many fullbacks and tight ends for a third. Jauan Jennings is likely the next man up.

RB: Jeff Wilson Jr. is dialed in. Kyle Juszczyk continues to be one of the most active fullbacks.

TE: Folks have been saying George Kittle is blocking more than usual but he’s only blocked on three pass plays in each of his games since coming back. This is the only played to finish top 5 at TE in about 10 years while blocking on 15% of his pass plays (2019) and he’s blocking on fewer than that. Stay the course for now.


WR: As they have for most of the season, Darnell Mooney and Equanimeous St. Brown played full snap shares. If this is what we get from Mooney on 22 pass attempts, just imagine a game with 30 or 40? The Jets are averaging 48 pass attempts per game. The Bears? 17.

RB:  Whenever David Montgomery is out, Khalil Herbert is a rock solid start. He played 48 of 62 snaps.

TE: Cole Kmet played every single snap except 1 and ran 32 of 36 routes. Doesn’t get much better in terms of deployment. He needs VOLUME.


WR: Chase, Higgins, Boyd. This is an easy one. The only question is whether Boyd plays a full snap share from week to week or if they use more two tight end sets. 

RB:  Joe Mixon played 53 of 64 snaps. He hasn’t been super efficient but you start that guy every week.

TE: Hayden Hurst once again split snaps with guys like Mitchel Wilcox and Devin Asiasi. He’s still the primary pass catcher but he only ran 26 of 37 routes. Mediocre option.


WR: Gabriel Davis and Stefon Diggs play virtually every snap on the outside when healthy. Between the two of them, they only missed 3 snaps. In the slot, both Isaiah McKenzie and Jamison Crowder left with injury so we could see a big dose of rookie Khalil Shakir this week.

RB:  Devin Singletary played 55 of 63 snaps. He’s also run the most routes of any RB so far this season. Who would have guessed?

TE:  Dawson Knox only blocked on one pass play but he’s also banged up so he didn’t play a full snap share (he only ran 29 of 43 routes). Between the usage and the injuries, he can’t be trusted.


WR: Amari Cooper (62) and Donovan Peoples-Jones (61) once again were your full time outside pass catchers. The next highest snap count for a WR was David Bell with 19. Stefanski loves his two TE sets.

RB:  Same as it ever was. Nick Chubb skews run downs, Kareem Hunt skews pass downs.

TE:  David Njoku looked good again - he ran 35 of 40 routes which is all you can really ask for. Big test this week with the Chargers who not only have a good pass rush but have safety Derwin James. Harrison Bryant plays a good amount but for now is more of an Njoku handcuff in fantasy.


WR: Mike Evans and Chris Godwin returned triumphantly to their full-time roles. Russell Gage was the WR3 but he only played a partial snap share (37 of 57 routes).

RB: Leonard Fournette asked and he received  - Rachaad White played a bigger role so that Fournette didn’t need to play every snap. Is this the new normal or just game script dependent? Fournette of course still out-snapped White (39 to 24).

TE: Cameron Brate left with a concussion and Cade Otton stepped up in his place. Otton could be a sneaky DFS play though you probably can’t trust him in redraft.


WR: Courtland Sutton played virtually the whole game though Jerry Jeudy only played 44 of 74 snaps. He has been a little banged up. Kendall Hinton comes on as the field stretcher but doesn’t play enough.

RB: Javonte Williams out for the season with a serious knee injury. You hate to see it. Melvin Gordon will be the starter with Mike Boone mixing in. They also signed Latavius Murray

TE: One snap for Albert Okwuegbunam this week. I’m not sure what happened but he has been relegated. Eric Saubert is the best bet for fantasy production but he’s more of a blocking tight end.


WR: Marquise Brown played his normal full snap share. As predicted, Rondale Moore returned and took his job back from Greg Dortch (65 snaps to 27). It will be interesting to see how the snaps shake out when DeAndre Hopkins returns.

RB: James Conner is the man here. 50 of 76 snaps.

TE: Zach Ertz played 62 of 76 snaps including running 37 of 40 routes. That usage is *chef’s kiss*. He’s a locked in starter in fantasy until Hopkins gets back at least.


WR: CeeDee Lamb and Noah Brown continued to be full-time guys as Michael Gallup works his way back to a full snap share. But it should eventually be Lamb and Gallup with Brown as the part time player.

RB:  Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard continue their spit with the slight edge to Zeke in workload - especially in the red area. Pollard has now shown up on the injury report so something to monitor.

TE: Dalton Schultz is back and he played 55 of 61 snaps. The results weren’t great but the usage is what matters.


WR: No Keenan Allen again. Mike Williams played 65 of 70 snaps. Josh Palmer took a step back here as it was DeAndre Carter (49) playing more snaps than him (39).

RB:  Finally a “get right” game for Austin Ekeler. You start him every week in any format regardless.

TE: Gerald Everett’s usage was solid again and he is a guy you start any time Keenan Allen is out. We haven’t really seen them play together yet but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.


WR: JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Mecole Hardman are your three wideouts once again. Skyy Moore saw a slight increase in usage but you can’t start a guy who plays 22 of 80 snaps in fantasy.

RB:  Jerick McKinnon had been playing a lot of snaps but he and Isaiah Pacheco took a big backseat to Clyde Edwards-Helaire this week. Helaire is still the guy to own.

TE: Travis Kelce is a stud that you start every week.


WR: Michael Pittman and Parris Campbell both play virtually every snap - just need Matt Ryan to get it going. Next up is Alec Pierce but he played about half the snaps. 

RB:  Jonathan Taylor got banged up and is out - Nyheim Hines will be the pass down back with Deon Jackson and Phillip Lindsay working the run downs.

TE: This continues to be all over the place. After two touchdowns from Jelani Woods, this week Mo Alie-Cox was the guy. At any given time Kylen Granson can lead the group in routes run though. Hard to trust anyone.


WR: It’s been Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson, and Curtis Samuel all year but now Jahan Dotson is set to miss a couple games. The next man up is second year wideout Dyami Brown.

RB: The split has been Antonio Gibson on run downs with JD McKissic on pass downs but this week we could see Brian Robinson, which could muddle the whole thing up.

TE: Logan Thomas continues to increase his routes run - he went from ~50%, to ~60% for two games, now to ~70%. With no Dotson and a good matchup, Thomas would be a great play but now he’s questionable with an injury. It would be John Bates and rookie Cole Turner if he can’t go.


WR: Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill play the big snaps, Trent Sherfield rotates with Mike Gesicki in the slot but it’s not enough to use for fantasy.

RB: Raheem Mostert is clearly the hot hand right now but that could change at any time with Mike McDaniel. Pretty annoying.

TE:  As usual, Durham Smythe is the full-time inline tight end but he doesn’t do much in the pass game. Mike Gesicki plays a partial snap share from the slot.


WR: AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith are the studs here. Quez Watkins is the slot guy but he only played 49 of 82 snaps. 

RB:  Miles Sanders had a monster game this week - Kenneth Gainwell spelled him but played less than half the snaps Sanders played (22 to 55). If it wasn’t for Jalen Hurts vulturing TDs, Sanders would be an RB1.

TE: Dallas Goedert played 74 of 82 snaps and ran 33 of 33 routes. About as safe as it gets.


WR: No one played a full snap share - not even Drake London (44 of 55 snaps). Olamide Zaccheaus played 31 of 55. In run heavy games like this it gets ugly but London is a guy you should start where you can. That’s it. 

RB: Cordarelle Patterson ended up on the IR after a minor procedure so it should be the Tyler Allgeier show now - though Caleb Huntley did get 10 carries himself.

TE: Parker Hesse is the inline tight end with Kyle Pitts mostly playing wide receiver. Pitts only ran 12 of 20 routes which is terrifying. Get this man involved please, Arthur Smith.


WR: What an absolute mess this is. Sterling Shepard is out. Kenny Golladay isn’t even flying to London. Kadarius Toney doesn’t look like he will play. Richie James Jr. rolled his ankle. We are looking at David Sills as the WR1 and Wan’Dale Robinson if he can play. Expect a lot of two tight-end sets.

RB: Saquon Barkley is a superstar. 

TE: Tanner Hudson once again quietly ran more routes than Daniel Bellinger (18 to 10). Hasn’t led to production yet but one week he is going to be a hit in DFS at his price. In fact, this week for the London showdown slate Bellinger is $3,600 and Hudson is $1,200…


WR: With Zay Jones out, Christian Kirk and Marvin Jones were the two full time guys with Tim Jones as the third WR. How many WRs named Jones does this team have?

RB: For the first time, Travis Etienne played more snaps than James Robinson (24 vs 22). It likely had to do with the game script but Etienne seems to be favored for pass work at least.

TE: Evan Engram once again had good usage and once again didn’t do much. You can bring a horse to water but can’t make him drink. Still worth a stash based on his snaps and routes run but hard to start.


WR: Elijah Moore (40 snaps) continues to be the snap leader every week but this time Garrett Wilson (38) ran the second most routes, not Corey Davis (32). That is out of 44.

RB: Breece Hall seems to be running away with the job as he got both more run snaps (17 vs 13) and pass snaps (29 vs 18) than Michael Carter. Might be last call to get him for cheap.

TE: Tyler Conklin ran 32 of 44 routes which isn’t bad but his production so far has been based on the huge volume. It will be scary in games they don’t drop back 40-50 times, which are coming. 


WR: With all the wideouts banged up, the rag tag crew of Josh Reynolds, Tom Kennedy, and Kalif Raymond held down the fort. At the end of the day, it will be DJ Chark, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and Jameson Williams. But those guys might be worth a spot start while we wait for them to get healthy, especially Josh Reynolds.

RB: Jamaal Williams is quietly the RB3 in half PPR. He’ll likely continue to be worth a flex even when D’Andre Swift returns. Craig Reynolds actually played more pass snaps than Jamaal Williams but he didn’t get enough carries to be consistent.  

TE: TJ Hockenson finally blew up the way we knew he was capable this week. Hopefully he keeps it rolling.


WR: Allen Lazard and Romeo Doubs played 70 of 73 snaps. No one else played more than 25. Those are the dudes.

RB: Aaron Jones (45 snaps) and AJ Dillon (42 snaps) combined for 87 snaps when the team only ran 73. So they are making good on their promise to get both guys on the field at the same time sometimes. 

TE: Robert Tonyan is not increasing his snap share. 32 of 73 snaps this week. That really caps his ceiling.


WR: DJ Moore and Robby Anderson played 50 of 52 snaps. Shi Smith is the slot guy with 39 of 52. The rest is tight end work.

RB: Christian McCaffrey is the man here. 45 of 52 snaps.

TE: These guys are all useless for fantasy. Giovanni Ricci led in snaps but he only ran 13 routes.


WR: DeVante Parker is the one dude playing a full snap share and probably the only fantasy option even worth considering until Jakobi Meyers is back. Nelson Agholor played 38 of 58 snaps as the second highest total. 

RB: They are splitting the run work but Rhamondre Stevenson played 28 pass snaps to 14 for Damien Harris so he’s likely the better start.

TE: Hunter Henry played 49 of 58 snaps but only ran 14 routes because he was asked to block five times. Impossible to trust him, even with Jonnu Smith out.


WR: It’s Davante Adams and Mack Hollins on the outside with Hunter Renfrow in the slot. Keelan Cole has been filling in for Renfrow while he’s been dealing with a concussion but he should return soon.

RB:  Josh Jacobs is a beast - he played 67 of 75 snaps. No two-back system for McDaniels.

TE:  Darren Waller ran 35 of 40 routes - in this tight end landscape, you start him where you have him.


WR: Cooper Kupp played every single snap. Allen Robinson played every snap but one but you would hardly have noticed. Ben Skowrenek is the third man until Van Jefferson returns - he played 65 snaps of 74 so not bad.

RB: Darrell Henderson is the preferred back on pass downs and he also had 7 carries while Akers had 8. Henderson is looking like the better option.

TE: Tytler Higbee is the defacto second target while Allen Robinson is a ghost. He played 69 of 74 snaps so a fairly safe option.


WR: Rashod Bateman left the game with a foot injury. That leaves Devin Duvernay as the top dog now. Demarcus Robinson played the next highest snap share so he’s the dart throw.

RB:  JK Dobbins returned and looked excellent. It’s his backfield. The last hurdle would be the return of Gus Edwards.

TE: Andrews continued his good deployment even if he didn’t produce much. Ran 42 of 43 routes, no pass blocking. Top option.


WR: With Michael Thomas out and Jarvis Landry dealing with nagging injuries, Chris Olave and Marquez Callaway led the show. That’s how it should look until MT gets back.

RB: Alvin Kamara was out last week so Mark Ingram led the team (29 snaps to 26 for Latavius Murray) but Kamara hould be back this week. They let Latavius Murray get signed away by the Broncos in fact.

TE: Juwan Johnson ran 19 routes to only 10 for Adam Trautman. But Andy Dalton did not look his way as much as Jameis Winston was.


WR: Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf are the only wide receivers worth worrying about here. 

RB: Rashaad Penny continues to be the man. Kenneth Walker mixes in and he is the biggest threat long term.

TE: Will Dissly (49 snaps) and Noah Fant (40 snaps) continue to split but Dissly is obviously the preferred target. Would be nice if Dissly would just get all the work.


WR: Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, and George Pickens continue to operate as the three wide receivers but the interesting note is that the new quarterback, Kenny Pickett, seems to like the rookie George Pickens. Something to monitor.

RB: Najee Harris is the guy. 48 of 64 snaps.

TE: Pat Freiermuth only blocked on two pass plays but still only ran 28 of 36 routes. Would like to see that a little higher but he’s still a backend TE1, high end TE2.


WR: Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins are the outside wide receivers but Davis Mills has not been the gunslinger he was last year. Chris Moore is the slot guy but he only plays about half the snaps because they like using multiple tight ends.

RB: Dameon Pierce hs taken control of this backfield- Rex Burkhead plays on pass downs but he didn’t get a single carry.

TE: OJ Howard led in snaps and routes run (28) compared to 17 routes for Jordan Akins and 13 for Mason Schreck. They outright released Pharoah Brown. 


WR: Treylon Burks left with an injury that should keep him out for a bit so it will be Robert Woods and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine moving forward. Kyle Phillips should work in the slot but he only played two snaps this week.

RB: Derrick Henry continues to be a beast. Dontrell Hilliard mixes in on some pass plays.

TE: Geoff Swaim is the blocking tight end, Austin Hooper is the pass-catching tight end but he’s not playing a full share (17 of 29 routes). Neither viable in fantasy.


WR: They played 72 snaps. Justin Jefferson (68) and Adam Thielen (70) play virtually every snap but KJ Osborn is not far behind (61). That’s how Kevin O’Connell rolls.

RB: Dalvin Cook has been a little banged up but he still got virtually every carry. Of course, Alexander Mattison scores on a screen. 

TE: Irv Smith continues to only play a little more than half the snaps. He ran 30 of 46 routes. Not quite enough.
