2022 Fantasy Football Targets and Touches Trends Through Week 11

Hi, everybody, and welcome to my 2022 Fantasy Football Targets and Touches Trends Through Week 11 article.

It is starting to become crunch time as Fantasy Football Playoffs are just a couple of weeks away. If you have not done so already it is time to start cutting bait on those players you hope will be a thing for those actually becoming a thing.

This is where this article comes in handy. Not only do I deliver you data for you to find those players gaining value for their teams, but I will point out specific scenarios where players' values are changing.

I discuss more of these teams' situations on our members-only Discord.

Running Backs

In the first game after backup running, Khalil Herbert, was placed on IR, the question was how involved was new backup Trestan Ebner was going to be.

The answer is, not enough to matter. Ebner only got on the field for 21% of the snaps and saw just six carries.

Looks like we are back to getting the workhorse David Montgomery again, which is music to those who roster him. As we've seen his value is really tied to him getting crazy good usage.

Now the question is just how good will the offense be with Justin Fields possibly missing time with an injured shoulder.

Denver Broncos

Ummm... what is happening in Denver. I mean we know they are hot garbage on the field offensively, but are we really going to get Latavius Murray season?

They cut Melvin Gordon after he lost his fifth fumble this season. To add to that, newly signed Chase Edmonds is going to be out multiple weeks with an ankle injury.

Unless you think Marlon Mack is going to be relevant, Murray appears to be it for the Broncos.

Kansas City Chiefs

I know this was partially due to injury, but I'm all in on Isiah Pacheco as the primary Chiefs running back. He only saw 40% of the snaps, but saw 15 carries to Jerick McKinnon's six.

Pachecho was able to turn those 15 carries into 107 yards rushing, the first 100-yard rushing game for the Chiefs since Week 4 of the 2021 season.

Now I say I'm all in on him as the Chiefs primary running back, that still likely leaves him in RB3/Flex consideration at best most weeks. This is due to the Chiefs passing the ball so much and Pacheco is not involved in the passing game at all.

Wide Receivers

New York Giants

I mention the Giants because if somehow Darius Slayton is available in your league you need to run out to get him now.

The Giants traded Kadarius Toney and lost Sterling Shepard earlier this season to injury. Now they have lost Wan'Dale Robinson to a season-ending ACL tear.

We already know we can't trust Kenny Golladay, so that leaves Marcus Johnson, Isaiah Hodges and Slayton.

We have seen his stock start to rise over the past weeks and this cements him as a potential difference-maker as the playoffs approach.

Los Angeles Rams

The first week with no Cooper Kupp and we got a bit of a jumbled mess with this receiving corps.

Allen Robinson and Van Jefferson led the way with five targets. Ben Skowronek saw four. And of course, Tutu Atwell got involved with one target, that happened to go for a long touchdown.

Now the targets are one thing, but the production is another. Only Robinson and Tyler Higbee caught four. Jefferson caught three and Skowronek was only able to haul in one target.

As I mentioned last week, I was willing to take flyers on these receivers to see if anything stuck but wasn't too confident in any of them. Just one week after, and I'm not holding out hope for much. It is even worse with Matthew Stafford being knocked out with a concussion, just a week after he missed a game for one.
