2020 NFL DFS Usage Trends: Week 16

In this space, we look at usage patterns that stick out to me, team-by-team, to help us for the following week. This isn’t the comprehensive look at every target tree we performed earlier in the season. Now, we’re looking at actionable items for the upcoming slate. Trends to ride and outliers to ignore (with teams to ignore). At times, there’s just nothing to say.

For brevity (if you can call it that), we zero in on the ball more than the snaps and routes. In the Grind Down and on our shows, we get deeper into those. If you want to see all of this data, you can find it in position-by-position in LineupHQ, game-by-game in GridironIQ, and JoshADHD’s excellent usage app. It’s very early in the week, so tread lightly with projections of any sort right now—whether it be points, market share, or ownership.

I will also note that this was published before Wednesday practices.
