NEW YORK GIANTS @ NEW YORK JETS

Move on miguel carter below your scratch board: Carter started the game for the Jets and had more playing time than the rookie Breece’s roombut the gap between them narrowed compared to their first preseason game.

    • Carter played seven snaps with the starters in his first game compared to two for Hall.
    • The two saw playing time on the first two series, then Hall received the third series and Carter the fourth.
    • None of the backs played once the substitutes arrived.
    • There was a tendency for Carter to play passing plays and Hall to play running plays, but Hall played more third downs while Carter played more early downs.
    • Hall can be expected to see a higher percentage of snaps as time goes on, and the fact that Hall played more on third downs means he could take both the early and the late job.

Move on Garrett Wilson below your scratch board: Wilson remains a backup for the Jets. He saw some playing time with the starters, but continued to play more when the benches came along.

    • The Jets don’t use their wide receivers interchangeably like some teams. Instead, each backup wide receiver is a backup to a particular starter.
    • Wilson was specifically Corey Davis‘ backup in this game, he only entered the field with the starters when Davis left.
    • This is the same thing that happened in the first preseason game: Wilson’s only snap with the starters came when Davis missed a snap.
    • Similarly, Jeff Smith was the support of Elijah Moore.
    • Davis took nine snaps on 11 personal compared to two for Wilson. And similarly, Davis took eight snaps on 12 personals to Wilson’s two.
    • Braxton Berrios remains locked in a slots role, playing 100% of the snaps with the starters at 11 people and 0% at 12 people. This is basically how jamison crowder it was used last year.
    • Wilson will likely take more time from Davis as the season goes on, but he may never get the amount of playing time he’d like to see from a fantasy starter in 2022.

Consider Tyler Conklin A deep sleep: Conklin walked off the field only once with the Jets’ starters and was the most-wanted player among the starters.

    • The Jets’ offense would need to improve significantly this season for Conklin to be a fantasy starter, as he would need several touchdown opportunities.
    • He seems to be looking at the amount of playing time needed to be a fantasy starter, at least.
    • CJ Uzomah he ran a lot of two-tight-end joint routes, but he didn’t see enough playing time to make him worth drafting in most leagues.

The Giants showed us more of the same: The Giants played multiple starters in all three preseason games while resting players who were too important or injured. They basically used their players the same way in all three games.

    • matt breida he’s still the Giants’ clear backup running back. He played the first six offensive snaps and finished the day.
    • Wan’Dale Robinson has remained as the initial slot receiver. sterling shepherd was recently activated, and the two will compete for slots turns, but Shepard did not play against the Jets.
    • Darius Slayton he didn’t play in the first two drives, but did so later in the game. He could be among the Giants’ roster cuts.
    • Daniel Bellinger he remains the unquestioned starting tight end. He played longer than other starters, which could be a bit of a concern, but he’s also a mid-round rookie, which makes the extended playing time more understandable.

DETROIT LIONS @ PITTSBURGH STEEL

Monitor the diontae johnson shoulder injury: Johnson left in the first quarter after landing awkwardly on his shoulder and was ruled out of the game shortly after. The severity of the injury at this point is unclear, but it’s no surprise that an injured starter would not return to the game, regardless of the severity.

    • Chase Claypool He also missed this match with a shoulder injury. Gunner Olszewski replaced Claypool in the starting lineup.
    • Olszewski played ahead of George Pickens in the first two 12-man snaps, but Pickens played ahead of Olszewski for more snaps later in the game, even when Claypool was out. It probably doesn’t mean much, but it’s worth monitoring.

Recruit najee harris: There had been talk this offseason of a reduced workload for Harris this season. He was used similarly to last season in the first half, seeing the vast majority of the plays. He should continue to see a workload few running backs will match.

    • jaylen warren he was the only other running back to see playing time in the first half, suggesting he’s the new favorite to be the backup. He also started the second half with reinforcements.
    • The Steelers would probably use multiple running backs in the event of an injury, with the best-looking running back getting the most playing time. All backups should be avoided in fantasy drafts.

table notes
  • Snaps include plays ruled out due to penalties, including offensive holding or defensive pass interference. The other three stats have these plays removed.
  • Goals may differ from official NFL sources. The most likely discrepancy would be from a clear pass discarded, where the NFL can give the target to the nearest receiver, while this information will not.
  • The carries are only on designed plays. Quarterback scrambles will not count towards the total number of carries in the game.
