Fantasy Football Lessons, Week 14: Good Penny, Bad Saquon

Rashaad Penny had his breakout and led the Seattle backfield, Taysom Hill continues to run spectacularly, Mark Andrews and George Kittle showed they are on another level and Brandon Aiyuk returned. Here are the most important lessons learned in Fantasy football – Week 14 NFL 2021.

Taysom Hill is a league winner

This QB handles 19% of the Saints’ carries and averages 5.50 yards after contact per carry, being the best in the entire NFL among players with at least 15 carries in the past two weeks. His performance throwing the ball has been extremely poor, but with his running ability he is a Top 5 QB that will make champions who have him on their team. No player in the NFL other than RB has more carries since Hill took over.

Rashaad Penny is the RB you need in the Playoffs

Penny had one of the best games of her career this week against Houston. He handled 57% of the team’s snaps, largely because Travis Homer was unavailable, but from now on the Seahawks are likely to want to involve their first-round running back more, especially in passing game, where nothing more ran on 43% of the routes and had 4% of target share. For now, it is a low RB2.

Saquon no longer has the same volume and his situation is difficult

Two weeks ago, Saquon was driving with 75% of snaps, with 68% of routes run and with 27% of targets per route run. This week marked an already worrying stage for all those who have this player in their ranks since he had only 54% of snaps, he ran only on 42% of routes and had 18% of targets per route run. He’s a short RB2 who I wouldn’t trust for the playoffs.

Greater risers Y fallers from week 13

Here are the players who fell the most and fell the most in my Fantasy Football rankings:


    • RB Devin Singletary – Bills: It dominated with 81% of snaps and was in 58% of possible routes with 17% of targets per route run. Nothing else had 28% carries.
    • RB Craig Reynolds – Lions: He led the backfield without Jamaal Williams with 52% of carries and 48% of snaps.
    • RB Ameer Abdullah – Panthers: It dominated with 58% of the snaps and was in 59% of the possible routes having a high utilization. It is a jewel in PPR that must be taken advantage of.
    • WR Amon-Ra St. Brown – Lions: It handles with 31% of target share and has 30% of targets per run route. Without Swift, it’s a bargain still available.
    • WR Robby Anderson – Panthers: He led the team in targets with 12 and DJ Moore was injured in the game so he may be the WR1 of this team.
    • WR Nico Collins – Texans: He was on 81% of the team’s routes and is a great option in deep leagues.
  • WR Donovan Peoples-Jones – Browns: It was the WR of the Browns with the most routes run with 91% and it once again showed its quality.


  • RB Joe Mixon – Bengals: He had a drop in snaps with only 60% snaps, the offense is being forced to pass the ball more, so Mixon is hurt by this.
  • WR Laquon Treadwell – Jaguars: This team is a disaster and they reduced the routes run to the WR who was playing the best and in this match he was only on 77% of the routes.
  • WR Tre’Quan Smith – Saints: This is a horrible WR committee and Smith already became the team’s WR2, I wouldn’t trust any of these players.
  • WR Breshad Perriman – Buccaneers: Tyler Johnson stole the role from this player in the only thing he depended on to be relevant in Fantasy Football.

Additional notes

  • Josh Palmer may be a great player for 2022.
  • Ty Johnson without Tevin Coleman has a lot of volume.
  • In case Austin Ekeler doesn’t play, Justin Jackson leads in rushing and Joshua Kelley in carries.
