There is clearly risk in deploying Ellington, yet I also find some intriguing upside to consider given what should be a respectable snap share. He led the Jets with 10 targets, seven receptions and 59 receiving yards. Nelson was targeted on a team-high 28.6 percent of his routes in Week 1, while his average depth of target -- or a DOT to the cool kids -- is 15 yards downfield since becoming a key cog in the offense in Week 12 of last season.
Those are impressive achievements that point to an expanded role in upcoming games, as he can actually be factored into the offensive game planning. In this sample, Nelson leads the Cardinals with five receiving touchdowns, as no other peer has more than two. Zach Miller, Chicago Bears As stated last week, before suffering a season-ending injury in Week 11 of the 2016 season, Miller was the sixth-highest scorer at the tight end position. Fiedorowicz and Ryan Griffin to concussions in Week 1, Anderson could consume a rewarding share of targets for a Houston offense that ranked second last season in targets allocated to the position. Baltimore Ravens The Ravens just absolutely dominated the Cincinnati Bengals during their opening week matchup and now get the Cleveland Browns at home in Week 2.
Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams The beauty in Goff's Week 1 performance against the Indianapolis Colts for fantasy owners wasn't his 72 percent completion rate or the fact that he posted the third-highest passer rating for the week, but rather that he threw the ball 10 times in the second half when the Los Angeles Rams had a lead of 27 or more points.

Afforded time to operate against a suspect pass defense in the friendly confines of Baltimore, Flacco is poised to post QB1 numbers at merely the price of a few clicks and a roster spot. Allen intrigues me because of the volume of usage he received in a game that was being thoroughly handled by his team.
With the loss of Danny Woodhead to a hamstring injury, Allen out-snapped teammate Terrence West 29 to 25 and was called on to stay in as a blocker only once during the seven passing plays he participated in. Andre Ellington, Arizona Cardinals Truly for those in deep PPR leagues and desperate situations -- or some blend of both -- Ellington is an interesting flex candidate for managers who can't acquire Williams.
“We are going to find out right away because we just landed not too long ago and pretty soon here we will be going to meetings and then starting up with our practice on Friday,” Flacco said Thursday per NFL Network.
“So, I’m definitely curious to see how my body reacts and how the rest of the team does too.” The Ravens have appeared to think of this ahead of time, however. each morning, something coach Harbaugh noted Monday, according to the Ravens’ official transcripts, when discussing how the team has prepared for the time change. their time, so some of us will have been up for quite a few hours before we play the game.

While the Cleveland Browns seemingly clamped down on Le'Veon Bell, that was likely a product of Bell missing all of training camp and the preseason more than a positive development for the Browns, who allowed the second-most points to opposing running backs in 2016.
