2020 NFL DFS Usage Trends: Week 3
In this space, headed into Week 3, we look at volume, team-by-team. The little volume of volume we have and see what that means for DFS, limiting our scope to volume. There will be analysis on how productive players were and should be, what sort of value they hold on the coming slate, and the ownership they project in other spaces. Here, we will look at volume in context to better frame our team outlooks.
Oh, and “IAY/PA” is intended air yards per pass attempt.
The Cardinals have run 151 plays through two weeks, second only to the Bengals, so there’s plenty of fantasy goodness to go around and it’s all going to three players: Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins, and Kenyan Drake. Murray has dropped back 94 times, which is tied for 4th in the NFL; and that’s still left room for Drake to run 36 times, which ranks 5th. He only has four targets, which stinks, but keeps his price down on both sites. DeAndre Hopkins leads the NFL with 25 targets in this high-volume offense, seeing double-digits in both games. This is high-volume, highly-concentrated offense we want to target again against Detroit at home in a game that opened at a 51-point total and is already up to 54.5 early in the week.
