Snap Count Observations: Week 6
We are at or approaching, the midway point of the fantasy regular season. By now, most of us know exactly what our teams are about. If you are dominating, it is time to bury opponents by continuing to build strong, smart depth. If you are losing but feel you could be a contender, it may be time to swing for the fences. Here is how snap counts in week 6 can help us accomplish our goals.
Taylor Gabriel 84% / Julio Jones 79% / Justin Hardy 74%
The Falcons offense seems to be stuck in mud over the last two games. Those are the same two games they did not have Mohamed Sanu in the lineup. If he somehow made it onto the waiver wire, add him immediately. He should step right back into his role in the offense.
Larry Fitzgerald 89% / John Brown 72% / Jaron Brown 52%
Everything about Arizona looked different this week with Adrian Peterson in the lineup. This may be the final stand for Bruce Arians and his group of “old men”. Try to get your hands on a piece of the Arizona offense.
C.J. Anderson 47% / Devontae Booker 28% / Jamaal Charles 25%
I stand by my early season prediction that Booker will continue to take snaps away from Anderson. I think Charles’ usage will remain static, but Booker may actually be better than Anderson and if that is the case, he must get the ball more.
Leonard Fournette 59% / Chris Ivory 41%
Seeing Fournette gimping around with an injury on Sunday reminded me that he is actually human. It also reminded me that he does have an injury history behind him. Chris Ivory is the kind of handcuff who could win leagues if he is given the ball often. Get him!
Adam Thielen 94% / Laquon Treadwell 57% / Michael Floyd 49%
Stefon Diggs has a history of lingering groin injuries. Treadwell and Floyd both have amazing measurables and pedigree. If either of them will ever make a great stride in production, it could very well be now.
Tanner Gentry 95% / Tre McBride 72% / Kendall Wright 72%
Gentry is an undrafted free agent rookie who made plays more than any other WR during Chicago’s training camp. This past game was only his second game on the active roster and he has yet to make any kind of statistical impact. His snap count displays the trust the coaching staff has in him, though. If Chicago allows Mitchell Trubisky to start passing more, Gentry will surely benefit.
