Snap Count Observations: Week 3
What an upside down week in the NFL. It did not lack in excitement or talking points. Every game is so matchup dependent, making fantasy football difficult to predict. We know one thing though; you can’t score if you aren’t on the field. Here are my week 3 snap count observations.
C.J. Anderson 70% / Jamaal Charles 30%
What a difference from Week 2 and 3 for Anderson. Charles actually looked like the better player. With Devontae Booker finally healthy, this could become a 3 man RBBC. We only have a handful of true stud RBs and although Anderson resembled one in week 2, I do not believe he is. Hope for another productive game in Week 4, then sell high if possible.
Brandon Coleman 79% / Michael Thomas 79% / Ted Ginn 59%
Although Coleman was on the field as much as Thomas, he was only targeted once. With Willie Snead’s suspension over, I’m sure Coleman will not see the field as much. The Saints offense should become more diverse with Snead back in.
Juju Smith-Schuster 80% / Martavis Bryant 70%
Bryant was targeted more (8:6) than Smith-Schuster, but the fact that Bryant was on the field less is notable. He dropped an easy TD on the first play of the game and has not looked like what we all expected after three games. I still have a lot of faith that he will start to shine, though. Use this snap count percentage to help sell the Bryant owner on trading him to you.
Joe Mixon 56% / Jeremy Hill 23% / Giovani Bernard 21%
Mixon is on the verge of a fantasy explosion. I’d willing to move mountains for him right now.
Ty Montgomery 93% / Jamaal Williams 7%
I expect much more of a timeshare from the Packer’s backfield in coming weeks. With Williams way off the radar, this is the time to make a move for him.
DeMarco Murray 66% / Derrick Henry 41%
I’m going to stop paying attention to this RB tandem as it makes no sense! Both players are very effective, so start either one with confidence any given week.
