Week 13: Snaps Impact & Target Analysis

Learn more about how many snaps and targets were had by some key Fantasy players as we push toward the last week of the Fantasy regular season.

Running Back Snaps and Targets

Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower, Saints

Ingram out-snapped Tim Hightower this week and had a huge game, rushing for 146 yards on 14 carries and scored rushing touchdowns, as well as, catching one of his two targets for 21 yards and a touchdown. Hightower has also been productive in three of the last four games and before this past week, he had out-snapped Ingram in two of the previous three games. Despite playing fewer snaps this past week, Hightower got more touches. The current pattern suggests that the two backs are taking turns in snap counts. Since Week 9, neither of the two have led the backfield in offensive snaps for consecutive weeks. It looks like we have a full blown committee in New Orleans.

Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon, Ravens

Since Week 7, Dixon has played more and more offensive snaps each week. He played in nearly 50 percent of the snaps and received the same amount of touches that Terrance West did, but was more efficient. It looks like the Ravens are going to continue to give Dixon opportunities down the stretch, and he is someone who could continue to see his role increase, especially as a pass catcher. He has now been targeted 12 times in the last three games and has come down with nine catches.

Wide Receiver Snaps and Targets

Eagles Wide Receivers

Jordan Mathews suffered an ankle injury against the Packers, and Nelson Agholor was a healthy scratch, leaving the Eagles with three wide receivers. Dorial Green-Beckham led the Eagles receivers in offensive snaps on Monday night, while Bryce Treggs came in at a close second. Green-Beckham also led the team in targets (10) and with six receptions for 82 yards. It appears that Green-Beckham has solidified a role in this offense and if Matthews is forced to miss time due to the ankle injury, he could be in line for a heavy workload.

Bills Wide Receivers

With Robert Woods out and a limited Sammy Watkins, we saw Marquise Goodwin play the most offensive snaps of all Bills receivers, and he also got the most targets, but not by much. Sammy Watkins played 18 fewer snaps, but saw just one fewer target and led Buffalo with 80 receiving yards. I fully expect that Watkins will return as the team's lead receiver in no time.

Tight End Snaps and Targets

http://www.scout.com/player/138656-richard-rodgers?s=532

Jared Cook and Richard Rodgers, Packers

Cook played more offensive snaps than Rodgers this week, but that did not necessarily translate to more fantasy production. Neither of the two tight ends saw many targets. Moving forward I would expect that Cook will lead the Packers tight ends in snaps and all over stats. He offers the most upside of the group.
