•Mike Whiteenables the Jets top receivers:Garrett Wilsonscored his first and second touchdowns since Week 2, whileElijah Moorescored his first touchdown of the season.

•Brian Robinson Jr.s best game yet:The Commanders rookie running back either tied or broke his career highs in rushing yards, receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns all before the start of the fourth quarter.

•The Dolphins dominate:Miamis offense and defense helped build a 30-0 lead by halftime, and backups entered in the fourth quarter.

PFFsfantasy footballrecap focuses on player usage and stats, breaking down all the vital information you need to achieve fantasy success in 2022.

•Jordan Akins:5 receptions, 61 yards, 1 touchdown

•Tyreek Hill:6 receptions, 85 yards, 1 carry, 5 rushing yards

The Dolphins backfield withoutRaheem Mostert:Mostert missed this game with a knee injury, leadingJeff Wilson see an even larger role than usual.

Wilson played 35 of a possible 45 snaps in the first half.

This seemed like it would be a great matchup for Wilson, but he averaged only 3.0 yards per carry. He averaged a decent 1.5 yards before contact per carry but wasnt doing much after contact.

Luckily, he scored a rushing touchdown to give the fantasy managers who started him some value.

He suffered an injury that kept him out for most of the third quarter, but he returned by the end of the period.

. He took a few snaps in the first half and took over for Wilson during his injury.

Gaskin also played the majority of the fourth quarter, as Miami mostly used backups throughout the frame. Thats why all of the starting wide receivers saw fewer snaps than usual.

Wilson can remain a fantasy starter depending on the matchup. He has some favorable matchups but also plays the 49ers next week and the Patriots during the fantasy championship week the two best teams at stopping fantasy production from running backs.

Dameon Pierces poor performances:Pierce has gained 16 yards on 15 carries over the past two weeks.

His playing time was worse than usual this week due to the blowout. He typically doesnt play as much in clear passing situations, and Houston faced a lot of those.

Pierce typically sees over 90% of snaps on early downs, but

was taking most of those snaps in the fourth quarter while Houston attempted a comeback.

Pierce has received no help from his offensive line the past two weeks. He has minus-six yards before contact and 22 yards after contact in that span.

He hasnt been tackled for a loss despite constantly getting hit in the backfield.

The Texans play the Browns next week, the only team to allow more fantasy points to running backs than Houston. This will be a great opportunity for Pierce to bounce back as long as its not another 30-point deficit by halftime.

•Tee Higgins:7 receptions, 114 yards, 1 touchdown

•Samaje Perine:17 carries, 58 yards, 1 touchdown, 4 receptions, 35 receiving yards

The Bengals withoutJoe Mixon:Mixon didnt play after suffering a concussion last week.

was the clear lead back, as expected. He ran the ball 17 times while finishing third on the team in targets.

was the primary backup, followed by

. The fact that Evans was at the bottom of the depth chart isnt a great sign for his long-term future.

The Bengals next two matchups are favorable for running backs, so it is definitely worth holding onto Perine until Mixon is cleared to play again. Even then, Perine is a fine handcuff to hold onto over these next few weeks.

AddTreylon Burks:The rookie receiver led the Titans in targets and was second in routes run.

Burks set a career high in receiving yards last week (111) and put together his second-best performance this week with 70 yards on four catches.

He managed his first NFL touchdown, albeit on a recovery of a

His playing time increased this week largely because the Titans used 11 personnel more often. He played 100% of snaps in 11 personnel and 24% of snaps in any other grouping.

Houston has some tough matchups upcoming, including one against the Eagles, but also has a few matchups against some of the worst secondaries in the league. Burks probably wont be a fantasy starter every week over the rest of the season, but hes reached a point where he can be a situational starter.

•D.J. Moore:4 receptions, 103 yards, 1 touchdown

•DOnta Foreman:24 carries, 113 yards

The Broncos new backfield:Latavius Murraydominated playing time for the Broncos after they releasedMelvin Gordon IIIandChase Edmondslanded on injured reserve.

Murray handled a clear majority of snaps in all situations. This wasnt a surprise on early downs but was less expected on passing downs.

He gained 75 receiving yards receiving last season and has 70 this season, including his six-yard reception today, which is why the receiving role was noteworthy.

Murray on the ground was the Broncos primary source of offense. He gained 92 yards on 13 carries, including a 52-yard run.

served as his backup on early downs, while

had been the Broncos third-down back earlier in the season before landing on injured reserve. Boone is eligible to return from injured reserve this upcoming week and could take a lot of the passing-down work going forward.

schedule for running backs going forward, with only bad or average matchups remaining. Murray might be only a borderline starter once Boone returns.

Panthers relying on the run:Carolina ran the ball 41 times with its top two running backs, andSam Darnoldthrew only 19 times in his first start of the season.

unsurprisingly led the Panthers with a 100-yard performance, but

also contributed with a season-high 17 carries.

Hubbards playing time was partially due to Foreman missing a little time in the second quarter. It was also because Carolina wanted to stick with the run game.

had been making this a three-man backfield in recent weeks, but he played just three snaps in this game. That definitely helps the fantasy value of the other two backs.

The Panthers have a bye next week, but then their next three opponents are among the top half of teams at allowing fantasy points to running backs. Two of those three teams are outside of playoff contention, so there is a chance Carolina will be able to stick with this strategy for most of the remaining fantasy season.

Its unlikely Hubbard can be trusted in fantasy starting lineups because a lot could go wrong for him, but he could be a cheap DFS play in those games.

Foreman should remain a starter for that three-game stretch.

•Garrett Wilson:5 receptions, 95 yards, 2 touchdowns

•Ty Johnson:5 carries, 62 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 reception, 16 receiving yards

MonitorMichael Carters health:Carter left the game early in the third quarter. Head coach Robert Saleh said after the game Carter sprained his ankle, but the severity of the sprain is unclear.

was a surprise healthy inactive, as he apparently fell to fourth on the depth chart.

Robinsons absence didnt lead to any increased playing time for Carter or receiving back

took the snaps that typically had gone to Robinson.

Knight took over for Carter after he left with injury. He played 18 of a possible 22 snaps on first or second down once Carter exited.

Knight put together a solid performance, with 14 carries for 69 yards.

Johnson might seem like a good waiver target after he scored a touchdown, but his role remained unchanged throughout the past few weeks. He played only on third downs and a very occasional early down.

Knight should be the popular waiver wire target, regardless of Carters health.

Keep Robinson on rosters just in case the Carter injury is serious.

Three of the Jets next five opponents are among the 10 best teams when it comes to allowing fantasy points to running backs.

Corey Davis return:Davis regained his role in the Jets starting lineup after getting injured in Week 7.

He returned to playing over 50% of offensive snaps but didnt play quite as often as normal.

Davis played 24 of a possible 28 snaps in 11 personnel but shared time with both

The Jets offense primarily focused on

. Davis was tied with three other players for the second-most targets (three).

sixth-easiest schedule for wide receivers

over the next five weeks, so there is a chance Davis could put up some good numbers moving forward.

Davis was a top-30 fantasy wide receiver in three of his first six games this season.

Monitor the health of the Bears wide receivers:Darnell Mooney,Chase ClaypoolandEquanimeous St. Brownall suffered injuries and didnt finish out the game.

Mooney and Claypool both played all 11 snaps from 11 personnel in the first half, while St. Brown played eight such snaps.

Claypool played 5-of-13 snaps in other personnel groups, while Mooney played in 4-of-13.

Mooney already saw his playing time decrease slightly in those situations last week, but this marks a more dramatic change in playing time prior to his injury.

Mooney suffered an ankle injury early in the third quarter and was quickly ruled doubtful to return.

took over as the primary slot receiver for the rest of the game.

St. Brown was getting his ankle or foot checked out between quarters. He tried to play early in the fourth quarter but didnt last long.

Claypool went to the medical tent for an undisclosed reason early in the fourth quarter and didnt return.

was the primary backup on the outside, followed by

This is all a situation to avoid, as the Bears finished with just 179 passing yards and have the

seventh-worst schedule for wide receivers

over the next five weeks, which includes a bye week.

The Bears new backup running back:Darrynton Evanssurpassed rookieTrestan Ebneron the depth chart and served as the primary backup against the Jets.

Evans ran the ball nine times for 34 yards and caught a 33-yard pass.

Ebners only offensive snap happened in a two-back set on a pass play.

Evans doesnt have any standalone value, as

is still playing the clear majority of snaps in every situation. But Evans is the new handcuff in the short term.

is the usual backup. Herbert will miss at least two more games while on injured reserve.

•Brian Robinson Jr.:18 carries, 105 yards, 2 receptions, 20 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown

•Olamide Zaccheaus:5 receptions, 91 yards

DropCurtis Samuel:The Commanders wide receiver has slowly but surely been phased out of the passing game.

He was held without a target against the Falcons, although he did have four carries for 13 yards.

Samuel averaged 9.3 targets per game in September, 6.0 per game in October and 2.2 per game in November.

Washington was largely staying in 11 personnel early in the season with multiple tight ends injured, but theyve been more comfortable using 12 personnel in recent weeks. Samuel typically isnt on the field in this personnel group.

The Commanders face the Giants in two of the next three games. New York has allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this season.

Washington also has its bye week in Week 14.

A committee replacesKyle Pitts:The Falcons had three tight ends see significant playing time in their first game without Pitts.

continued to see his usual playing time in two-tight end sets, which was enough time for him to run a number of routes but not see a target.

was the primary player to take over for Pitts last week. He was on the end of a touchdown pass in the red zone but ran the fewest routes of the three. He largely just played in two-tight end sets with Hesse.

hadnt played since Week 5, but he became the primary receiving tight end. He barely played in two-tight end sets but was typically the player on the field in 11 personnel. This led to only a 16-yard catch.

Pitts was a hard player to trust despite his talent and a large role in the offense. Since his role was split between two players who arent as talented, this is clearly a situation to avoid.

•Nick Chubb:26 carries, 116 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 reception, 16 receiving yards

•Chris Godwin:12 receptions, 110 yards, 1 touchdown

The Buccaneers withoutLeonard Fournette:Rachaad Whitedominated snaps for the Buccaneers, but it might not be enough fro him to hold onto a significant role.

White was the clear RB1 in every situation, only losing a few snaps to

He put together a great first quarter running the ball. He gained 48 yards on four carries, which was the most yards by a Buccaneers runner in the first quarter this season.

White gained only 11 yards on eight carries over the next three quarters, and he averaged just 0.25 yards before contact per carry.

He caught nine passes for 45 yards throughout the game. It was the second-most receptions by a Buccaneers running back this season.

There hasnt been a noticeable difference between White and Fournette this season. There is a chance White continues to see a high number of snaps and becomes a fantasy starter from volume alone, but we could also go back to more of a split.

returned from injured reserve for the Buccaneers, but he didnt see a snap in this game. There is a chance he could contribute in the future.

David Njokucloser to normal:The Browns tight end returned from injury last week but only in a part-time role. His playing time was much closer to normal this week.

Njoku played just 11 of a possible 52 snaps out of 11 personnel on first or second down last week. That increased to 37-of-48 this week. That percentage of snaps was consistent with his workload early in the season.

His playing time was down by only a snap or two compared to his average. That was because

took two snaps out of 11 personnel on third downs, while

took two snaps from two-tight end sets. Those were both situations where Njoku typically plays 92%-plus of the time.

Njoku remained a clear part of the passing game, catching five passes for 29 yards and a touchdown.

against the Texans next week, but the schedule progressively gets worse, and he plays the Commanders and Saints in Weeks 16 and 17. Those are the clear two best teams at preventing fantasy points to tight ends.

•Zay Jones:11 receptions, 145 yards, 1 two-point conversion

•JaMycal Hasty:12 carries, 28 yards, 5 receptions, 67 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown

MonitorTravis Etiennes health:Etienne suffered a foot injury in the first quarter and didnt come back in the game.

He did return to the sidelines with his pads still on after a trip to the locker room, and after the game

indicated he thinks he will be OK for next week

took over as the main running back for the rest of the game. He was ineffective running with the ball, averaging 2.3 yards per carry, but made his mark as a receiver, which helped lead Jacksonville to victory.

became the primary backup. The fifth-round rookie saw his first career carries and ended with 11 yards on three attempts.

from the Rams off waivers this past week. He was inactive today due to the short turnaround, but there is a chance Henderson could take on a significant role if Etienne misses time.

Both Hasty and Henderson could be considered waiver wire targets with a decent upcoming matchup against the Lions, but we would probably need both bad news regarding Etiennes injury and some announcement of how the backs would be used before feeling comfortable with starting one of the backups.

AddZay Jones:Jones dominated the Ravens secondary and put together a career-high 145 receiving yards.

Jones was a top-32 wide receiver heading into Week 12 in terms of routes, targets and receptions.

His main problems were a low yards per catch figure and only one touchdown reception.

His playing time has declined a little bit in recent weeks, but hes still seeing enough snaps and routes to be a factor.

Jones is specifically a good option for fantasy teams looking for help the next two weeks, especially while eight NFL teams still have bye weeks. The Jaguars play the Lions and Titans, who both rank top five in allowing fantasy points to wide receivers.

Gus Edwards return:Edwards returned from hamstring and knee injuries that kept him out since Week 8.

He returned to the top of the Ravens depth chart, running the ball 16 times for 52 yards and a touchdown.

in passing situations. The two combined for three carries and one target.

It would be fine to release Drake from fantasy rosters at this point, as it would likely take another injury to Edwards for Drake to see significant time again.

remains on injured reserve but is eligible to come back whenever he is healthy.

easiest schedule for fantasy running backs

over the rest of the season. Edwards should be one of the top waiver wire pickups this week, as he can at least help in the short term before Dobbins is back and likely still see double-digit carries even when Dobbins returns.

The Ravens withoutIsaiah Likely:The Ravens rookie showed up on the injury report Friday with an ankle injury. He received a questionable designation for the game but ultimately was inactive.

saw an increase in snaps, which was also the case recently when

Oliver ended up leading the team in receiving yards (76) while also scoring the teams only receiving touchdown.

Ideally Likely will be back next week, resulting in a decrease in snaps for Oliver. Even if Likely misses time, its unlikely Oliver will consistently be a receiving asset for Baltimore.

•Josh Jacobs:33 carries, 229 yards, 2 touchdowns; 6 receptions, 74 receiving yards

•Ken Walker:14 carries, 26 yards, 2 touchdowns

AddFoster Moreau:The Raiders starting tight end caught three of his seven targets for 33 yards and a touchdown.

His 77 snaps played tied for second-most for a tight end in a game this season.

It was his second straight week playing 100% of the Raiders offensive snaps.

Hes played 380 of a possible 386 snaps over the last six weeks.

On this amount of playing time, he can survive with average production to be a fantasy starter in the right matchup.

The Raiders play the Chargers next week. This year, Los Angeles has allowed the third-most receiving yards per game to tight ends.

Seahawks change things slightly at TE:The Seahawks had used a three-man rotation at tight end, making it impossible to trust any of them in fantasy. But that might now be changing.

ranked in the top 12 in terms of PFF receiving grade heading into Week 12. Either could operate as a fantasy starter if they werent competing against one another for snaps.

Their tight end room has caught five touchdowns, which is the sixth-most for a team this season.

also played significant snaps, but his playing time has declined in recent weeks to the benefit of the two older tight ends.

Its unlikely that you can trust Dissly or Fant in redraft this season without an injury, but this makes both players more attractive options in DFS.

•Austin Ekeler:5 carries, 20 yards; 11 receptions, 60 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown

•DeAndre Carter:7 receptions, 73 yards, 1 touchdown

The return ofMarquise Brown:Brown was activated off injured reserve after suffering a foot injury in Week 6.

Brown returned as a full-time starter and led the team in targets.

He primarily played in the slot in three-receiver sets while both

This isnt great news for Moore or Dortch once they are healthy. However, the chances are that Brown will move outside once one of the slot receivers is healthy, which could lead to fewer targets.

as an outside receiver in 11 personnel.

Brown played every snap in 12 personnel, but Hopkins split playing time with

. This meant that Hopkins mostly missed a number of run plays, but it also cost Hopkins a few pass routes.

Hopkins will remain a must-start player, but it does cut into his ceiling.

The Cardinals have a bye week next week, giving their slot receivers time to get healthy.

Their next two games are the Patriots and Broncos, two of the top three teams at preventing fantasy points to wide receivers. This could make it harder to trust these wide receivers in the short term.

The return ofGerald Everett:Everett suffered a groin injury in Week 10 and missed Week 11. He returned in Week 12, but only on a limited basis.

He played only half of the Chargers snaps out of 11 personnel. He was often the player on the field on third down but didnt take as many early-down snaps.

He was typically on the field in 12 personnel but rarely when the team had a fullback on the field.

He caught four passes for 18 yards but also caught the game-winning 2-point conversion.

The Chargers have a favorable matchup against the Raiders next week, so its probably safe to keep Everett in starting lineups, even if he doesnt see a significant increase in snaps.

The return ofJoshua Kelley:The Chargers backup running back returned from injured reserve and re-joined the running back rotation.

largely because of his ability to pass protect. They were near-even in carries and routes run.

Kelley was frequently targeted on his limited routes, gaining two receptions on 16 snaps.

to healthy inactive for the first time this season.

These backups are probably best to avoid in most leagues, as we could see some kind of committee if

Kelleys return had no impact on Ekelers playing time.

•Jauan Jennings:6 receptions, 49 yards, 1 touchdown

•Brandon Aiyuk:5 receptions, 65 yards

MonitorElijah Mitchells health:Mitchell reportedly suffered a possible MCL sprain, although its not believed to be as serious as his previous MCL sprain.

Mitchell played 11-of-42 snaps in the first half, more first-half snaps than he had been playing recently. He had largely been playing in the second half while the 49ers were playing with a lead.

He left the game early in the third quarter and didnt return.

took over as the backup and largely split snaps with

gets activated if Mitchell misses time. Coleman became the No. 2 back earlier in the season before the McCaffrey trade.

McCaffreys playing time was consistent with recent weeks, but he didnt run the ball as much and wasnt targeted on as many passes.

The 49ers have much more competitive matchups coming up, which could lead the team to rely more on McCaffrey and less on the backups, regardless of Mitchells status.

Monitor the health ofAlvin Kamara:Kamara went to the medical tent at one point and was also sick yesterday.

Kamara put together a forgettable performance, averaging less than 2.0 yards per carry and losing two fumbles.

This was his fourth straight game under 45 rushing yards and 3.5 yards per carry.

ran the ball nearly as much as Kamara. They had kept Hill at three carries or fewer in three of the last six games but have run him a bit more in the last two games.

had missed nearly a month of football but returned to the Saints to be the primary backup for this game. He gained 10 yards on four carries.

The Saints have an equally difficult matchup next week against the Buccaneers and then have a bye week. Its not out of the question to bench Kamara, though it depends on the other running backs you have.

New Orleans will have much more favorable matchups in the fantasy playoffs.

DropJuwan Johnson:The Saints tight end had scored five touchdowns in the previous five weeks, but his playing time has slowly been on the decline.

The Saints rotate players more than most teams but typically have clear players playing in passing situations. Thats how someone like Chris Olave can play only 38 snaps but still be a must-start.

Johnson used to have similar splits, as he played a lot on passing downs and not much in rushing situations, but that has slowly changed.

He played only half of the teams snaps from 11 personnel. This has been a combo of

getting more involved in the passing game, as well as

slowly but surely getting more snaps.

Johnson was an okay option as a touchdown-dependent player when he was almost always in for passing situations. Playing barely over half of the passing snaps isnt enough to trust him.

•Isiah Pacheco:22 carries, 69 yards, 1 touchdown; 1 reception, 17 receiving yards

•Travis Kelce:4 receptions, 57 yards, 1 touchdown

The Rams withoutAllen Robinson II:The Rams were already without All-ProCooper Kupp(injured reserve), but they were also without Robinson this week because of an ankle injury.

The Rams stuck with their usual strategy of staying in 11 personnel but rotated wide receivers in and out much more frequently than usual.

They rotated five players, which meant usual starter

led the team with three catches for 29 yards and a touchdown.

was the only other wide receiver with double-digit yards, catching both of his targets for 23.

After the game, the Rams announced that Robinson will undergo season-ending surgery on his foot. So, we will likely see this rotation over the rest of the season.

With QBMatthew Staffordalso injured, these are all players to avoid this season.

Each of the top five wide receivers is under contract for next season, so Skowronek, Jefferson and Atwell are fighting for the third receiver spot in 2023.

AddKyren Williams:The Rams rookie played a bigger role, partially due to the release ofDarrell Hendersonbut also because he took snaps away fromCam Akers.

Williams got all of the passing-down work as he did last week but he also took half of the early-down snaps.

He led the team in carries with 11, although he was largely ineffective at 3.2 yards per carry.

He also finished second on the team in receiving yards at 25 after catching three passes.

The Rams next three games are all against teams that rank in the top eight in terms of fantasy points allowed to running backs. So, while the offense hasnt played well recently, they could take advantage of some poor matchups.

The return ofJuJu Smith-Schuster:The veteran receiver returned after missing Week 11 and most of Week 10 but didnt play as much as usual.

He didnt play nearly as much as he usually does in two-tight end sets and rotated with

as the third receiver in three-receiver sets.

dominated snaps for Kansas City, as he was almost always the wide receiver in 13 personnel.

Moore led the team in targets, but six players on offense ran more routes.

It wouldnt be surprising for Moore to fall back to fifth on the depth chart once

is healthy and Smith-Schuster isnt on a pitch count.

The Chiefs withoutClyde Edwards-Helaire:The former first-round pick landed on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain, which cost him this game and at least the next three.

was active for the Chiefs as their third running back.

Jones played a little more than Edwards-Helaire had in recent weeks, but it largely came at the expense of

not only maintained his role in the offense but took several goal-line snaps, something he hasnt done in past weeks.

This allowed Pacheco to score a 3-yard touchdown, his first score since garbage time in Week 1.

Pacheco also set a career high in receiving yards at 17.

His number of rushing attempts in recent weeks was enough to make him a borderline fantasy starter, but the possibility of scoring touchdowns moves him closer to a must-start.

•Miles Sanders:21 carries, 143 yards, 2 touchdowns; 3 receptions, 17 receiving yards

•Christian Watson:4 receptions, 110 yards, 1 touchdown

MonitorAaron Rodgers health:Rodgers left the game with an oblique injury in the second half and didnt return.

There have also been reports that Rodgers has been playing through a fractured thumb on his throwing hand.

took over as the Packers quarterback for the rest of the game. He instantly found WR

It wouldnt be surprising if the Packers are conservative with Rodgers health, given that they are 4-8 and outside of the playoff race.

This isnt great news for their wide receivers, as no pass-catcher tallied more than 32 receiving yards tonight.

will likely continue to see a lot of volume, but they might not be as effective if the defenses focus on them.

It would be too early to drop either of the Packers wide receivers, just in case one emerges as Loves clear favorite. Watson seems to be the early front-runner in that regard.

Kenneth Gainwellbecomes more involved:Gainwell set season-highs in snaps, yards and carries.

The second-year back also scored the Eagles first touchdown of the game.

was mainly because the Eagles ran a hurry-up offense early and had the lead late in the game.

This came after a week where the former Memphis Tiger recorded a season-low in offensive snaps and didnt gain a single yard on offense, so this might not necessarily be a thing to come.

Gainwell isnt a complete handcuff in Philadelphi.
