Target Breakdown: Week 7 WR/TE Usage Recap and Week 8 Waiver Preview

Target Breakdown: Week 7 WR/TE Usage Recap and Week 8 Waiver Preview

This article is part of our Target Breakdown series.

Week 7 was a brutal one for injuries, especially among wide receivers, though it at least appears we avoided issues of the season-ending variety. Rookie RB Breece Hall wasn't so lucky, and you can see my take on the fallout from his injury (and more) in our weekly Backfield Breakdown, posted every Monday here on RotoWire.

Now let's take a look at all the happenings with wide receivers and tight ends, including game-by-game breakdowns, weekly vs. season share comparisons and a look-ahead to waivers for Week 8. Wide receivers should get more attention than usual with waiver bids this week, considering how many of us are left scrambling for starters after Week 7 action saw Mike Williams, DK Metcalf and Amon-Ra St. Brown (among others) succumb to injuries.

Share Comparisons

Below we show target, route and air-yard shares for Week , compared to numbers for the season as a whole. Sorting by the delta columns is a quick way to find outliers (or trends... or injuries).

Shares shown below only include active games for the following prominent players who have missed time this season:

8Rashid Shaheed14.1%816.3%5.2%12.2%0.8%4212.5%053
  • With Thomas and Landry out again, Callaway and Smith joined Olave as the primary three-wide grouping, though White and Shaheed also got playing time, with the latter contributing a 53-yard TD on his only target.
  • Olave either has a TD or 80-plus yards in every game he's played since Week 1, and now is averaging 5.3 catches for 82.5 yards on 9.3 targets per game.
    • The downside? Four passes intended for him have ben intercepted, and he's dropped two others.
  • Johnson put up 5-32-2 on five targets, though his shares weren't all that much better with Adam Trautman (ankle) inactive.
    • Vannett got the inline TE work and ran only three routes.
  • Hill completed two passes for 48 yards, took three carries for nine yards and caught his lone target for a three-yard TD. Better than the week before, but still a workload that leaves him on thin ice as a starter at TE (at least in PPR leagues... the rushing TDs go a long way in standard scoring).

  • Hopkins jumped right into an every-down role and caught 10 passes for 103 yards in his season debut.
  • Moore was targeted just twice, after five or more looks in each of his first three games this year. He's also gone back-to-back weeks without a carry now.
    • Per PFF, Moore lined up on the perimeter for 49 of his 58 snaps, after seeing 108 snaps in the slot over the previous two weeks (and only 23 out wide).
  • Ertz finished with fewer than six catches and fewer than six targets for the first time since Week 1, going 2-21-0 on four targets (plus a two-point conversion).
    • This was the TE's first game below double-digit PPR points this year. He'd previously fallen in the range of 10.5 to 16.7 points each week.
  • Dortch rejoined the rotation as the No. 3 receiver, playing 53% of snaps after just 3% and 6% in the previous two games.
    • Anderson didn't play much in his Cards debut, with one incomplete target on six routes. Dortch likely will lose snaps to Anderson going forward, with Moore presumably seeing a bunch of slot work.

  • Godwin topped 85% snap share and double-digit targets for a second straight game, though he was held to 7-43-0 on 13 targets.
  • Evans dropped an easy 64-yard TD on the opening drive, and ultimately needed 15 targets to get to 9-96-0. He still hasn't scored since Week 3, but his per-game averages for catches (5.5) and yards (75.7) are up from the past two years playing with Brady.
  • Otton got most of the TE work for a second time in three weeks with Cameron Brate (neck) inactive.
    • The rookie put up 4-64-0 on five targets and 81% snap share, two weeks after a 6-43-0 line on 94% of snaps against Atlanta.
  • Gage reinjured his hamstring and may not be available Thursday night against the Ravens.

    • Marshall should've had a gain of around 25 yards on his first target but couldn't complete it. He did catch the other two for 31 combined yards.

    • Myarick took 87% of snaps after halftime, with Hudson getting 54%.
    • The Giants may need outside help here, with Bellinger expected to be out for weeks, if not longer. They already had one of the weakest TE rooms in the league.
  • Slayton caught three of six targets for 58 yards and a TD, though Johnson and Robinson both ran more routes.
    • Robinson jumped to 67% snap share and 6-50-0 on a team-high eight targets, after 3-37-1 on four targets and only 23% of snaps the week before.

    • Zay is averaging 5.2 catches per game, but for only 46.8 yards and with just one TD among his 31 receptions. (He did see two EZ targets in Sunday's loss).
    • He's still searching for his first gain of more than 20 yards this season.
  • Marvin played less snaps than usual after missing Week 6 with a hamstring injury, though he finished with 4-57-0, his second best yardage total of the season.
  • The targets and yardage were Kirk's second best totals of the year - 7-96-0 on 10 looks.
  • That's three in a row for Engram with at least four catches and 40 yards. He's averaging 4.0 catches for 39.3 yards on 5.6 targets per game, and still searching for his first TD of the season.

  • Campbell saw double-digit targets for a second straight week, after getting only 15 over the first five games of the season (while playing more than two-thirds of snaps in every contest.
    • Additionally, Campbell scored for a second straight game and topped 90% snap share for a third week in a row.
    • He finished with 10-70-1, after 7-57-1 the week before. It's pretty much all been short stuff, but he does have the speed (4.31 40) to do more than that, at least theoretically. It's harder when your team doesn't have a QB with an arm.
  • At tight end, the route split between MAC, Granson and Woods was more even than ever before, and the trio combined for only three targets and 10 yards.
  • Pierce got a big bump in snap/route share, but not because he replaced Campbell in two-wide sets....
    • The Colts strictly used 11 personnel (three-wide) in this one. Odd. They used it on 71 of 79 snaps the week before, which is also a lot, but not unheard of. 100 percent is unusual, even for the Rams.

  • The good news for Pitts? 42 percent target share!
    • The bad news? Literally everything else. This is a nightmare for him and London, and it's not clear whom Smith is serving by refusing to pass when trailing big. Is he trying to sabotage his most talented young players, or does he merely hope to get himself fired as soon as possible? Sure, run-game design is his specialty and he's good at it, but right now he has a terrible group of RBs behind a mediocre O-line. I can't believe I gave this guy so much credit in the past. /rantend

    • He cost only $5,600 on FanDuel for Week 8, FWIW.
  • Turner left with a concussion, while Bates was seemingly limited in his first game back from a hamstring injury.
    • Rogers, a college QB and rookie UDFA, ended up leading the TE group in snaps. (Logan Thomas has missed three weeks in a row with a calf injury.)

  • Wilson's snap share jumped back up after 56% and 44% the previous two weeks, but the rookie nonetheless finished with less than 7 PPR points for a fourth straight game.

  • Sutton was held to 3-23-0 on nine targets, despite seeing two passes in the end zone from backup QB Brett Rypien (who stinks, in case you were wondering).
  • Dulcich was one of the few bright spots for Denver, with nine targets on 32 routes after a 2-44-1 line the week before in his NFL debut.
    • It'll probably be inefficient production if he stays involved, but there's a chance for a decent number of targets in this broken Denver offense, especially now that the RB position is so devoid of receiving threats (not to mention rushing ability).

  • Allen played for the first time since Week 1 but was taken out after halftime.
  • Williams then suffered a high-ankle sprain late in the game, likely ruling him out for multiple weeks, though the Chargers do have a Week 8 bye to help his cause.
  • Bandy and Carter both played 25 of 25 snaps in the fourth quarter, with Moore taking 15 (60%).
    • Bandy caught one of six targets for a five-yard loss, and Carter was held to 3-37-0 on seven targets and 50 routes. Poor Justin Herbert.

8Justin Watson15.5%821.6%15.9%25.9%3.6%1725.0%14
  • Smith-Schuster had 100-plus yards and a TD for a second straight week, but with his snap share dipping from 88% all the way to 57% and even his route share (68%) taking a sizable hit.
    • The Chiefs have had a deeper rotation than most teams this year, with even Kelce missing out on some routes every week. Still, we'll keep a close eye on this after the Week 8 bye, as Moore and Hardman are talented enough to poach more work from JuJu and MVS
  • Valdes-Scantling, like Smith-Schuster, finished with season-low snap share, though MVS played two-thirds of snaps in the first half and had his first 100-yard game of the year.
    • Pre-halftime, Hardman and MVS both played 22 of 33 snaps, with JuJu getting 20 (61%) and Moore eight (24%).

  • Freiermuth didn't play quite as much as usual in his first game back from a concussion, but his route share was normal because the Steelers mostly just took him off the field for run plays.

  • Gesicki got seven targets for a second straight week, after four or fewer in each of Miami's first five games.
    • He managed only 3-27-0 after 6-69-2 (nice) the week before.
    • The increased work may be related to Smythe's hamstring injury (which kept him out Week 6 and perhaps limited his role Week 7.
      • Gesicki has taken 89% of snaps in 11 personnel the past two weeks, up from 66% over the first five games (with Smythe getting 33% those first five weeks).

  • That's four in a row for Mooney with over 50 yards. Still no TD or 100-yard outing, but his fantasy value isn't totally shot.
  • St. Brown nearly doubled his previous season high for targets despite handling his smallest snap share of the season with Harry taking away a bunch of playing time in his Bears debut.
    • Pettis also lost work, down to 31% of snaps and one target after a 4-84-1 on 61% in a loss to Washington the week before.
