Results: Won all double ups

What worked:

Robert Woods
– With the Broncos struggling to defend the deep ball this year it made sense to target the Rams WR with the highest share of air yards on the team. Woods was clearly the top WR option against the Broncos as Goff targeted him 10 times, resulting in 7 catches for 109 yards.

James Conner – The Bengals have struggled defending runs to the edges this season as evidenced by big rushing totals allowed to Christian McCaffrey and Tevin Coleman in recent weeks.

Additionally, the nature of the Bengals defense focusing on taking away the big play but allowing teams to advance the ball downfield slowly in a bend but don’t break fashion. With the Bengals also struggling to get teams off the field on third down and preventing touchdowns, the matchup was shaping up as one that would feature high usage in both the run and short pass game for Conner. We were not disappointed as Conner racked up 111 yards on the ground with two touchdowns and added 4 catches for 18 yards on 7 targets through the air.

What didn’t work:

Even on winning weeks, we strive for perfection and always like to take a look back on some of the predictions that didn’t materialize:

Chris Carson - So far Carson has been the lead dog in the Seahawks backfield and the game against the Raiders set up well for the Seahawks to continue their run heavy ways. The game script was in our favor as the Seahawks jumped out to a large early lead. However, a lack of play calling creativity along with no pass game involvement or touchdowns for Carson led to a disappointing 14 carries for 59-yard outing for Carson.

TJ Yeldon – We selected Yeldon as a starting running back on a favored Jags team who was expected to see all meaningful running back volume on the ground and through the air against a good Cowboys defense that has been strong against the pass, funneling a higher than league average number of targets to the opposing RBs. A poor showing by the Jags defense and Blake Bortles resulted in the Jags only running 47 plays on offense compared to 72 plays run by the Cowboys. Yeldon still did see all the RB volume for the Jags, however, the poor game script and low amount of plays run by the offense only resulted in 8 carries for 41 yards and 3 receptions on 5 targets for 29 yards.
