Fantasy Football Workload, Week 9: Data for All 32 NFL Teams Over the Past Month

Nov 02, 2018 6:21 PM EDT
  • This fantasy football workload data is broken down into interactive visuals with all snap, rush, target and red-zone data for every NFL team.
  • Several players stand out over their past four games, including James Conner, Todd Gurley, Kareem Hunt and Jarvis Landry.

The Fantasy Football Market Share Report presents team-specific usage splits in easy-to-analyze visual form. For more information, see the first piece in the series.


Eight weeks of the regular season are in the books, and some market-share dominators have certainly emerged.

To view all snap, rush, receiving and red zone data, check out the graphs below. They’re interactive, so hover over any aspect for more data, and rotate through teams using the navigation at the top of every chart.

For weekly analysis using this data, check out the FantasyLabs NFL homepage. I’ll tweet out some findings as well, if that’s your thing. Either way, this data is best used in conjunction with FantasyLabs’ suite of Tools, especially our Models.

Good luck in Week 9!

Snaps

A guy can’t touch the ball if he’s not on the field. Snap data is more important than a lot of people think. If 80% of success is just showing up, then we want guys who actually show up on the field.

  • Nine of the 28 teams in action in Week 8 had 70 or more offensive snaps: Buccaneers (88), Colts (78), Rams (78), Patriots (76), Broncos (73), Vikings (73), Steelers (71), Titans (71) and Giants (70).
  • Perhaps the best way to use snap data is to tease out situations where players are putting up unsustainable fantasy production in limited playing time.

Targets

Players compete for one ball on a per-play basis, and there’s only so much of the pie to go around. Targets are important.

  • Ten players have received at least 28% of their team’s targets over the past four weeks: A.J. Green (31.9), Jarvis Landry (29.9), Davante Adams (29.9), DeAndre Hopkins (29.8), Julio Jones (29.6), Golden Tate (28.7), Adam Thielen (28.6), James White (28.4), Corey Davis (28.3) and Odell Beckham (28.2).
  • Of those players, note that Tate was traded to the Eagles this week. Justin Bailey writes here how Kenny Golladay could see a high market share this week with him gone.

Rushes

Again, there’s only so much of the rushing pie to go around.

  • Ten players have received at least 70% of their team’s rushes over the past four weeks: Joe Mixon (88.2), Saquon Barkley (87.3), James Conner (86.9), David Johnson (83.5), Ezekiel Elliott (83.2), Kareem Hunt (76.8), Todd Gurley (75.6), Adrian Peterson (74.0), Christian McCaffrey (73.0) and Latavius Murray (71.6).

Opportunities Inside the 10-Yard Line

Touchdowns are critical for success in guaranteed prize pools. Getting opportunities inside the 10-yard line is pretty much DFS gold.

  • Twelve players have received eight or more opportunities (rushes and targets) within the 10-yard line over the past four weeks: Todd Gurley (19), Alvin Kamara (12), James Conner (12), David Johnson (11), Marlon Mack (10), Kareem Hunt (10), Melvin Gordon (9), Jordan Howard (8), Ezekiel Elliott (8), Sony Michel (8), James White (8) and DeAndre Hopkins (7).
