WR Snap Counts Cont.

Tim Patrick

After losing their #1 receiver Courtland Sutton, the Broncos have been searching for someone to fill their playmaking Pro Bowler’s shoes.

Enter Tim Patrick who has produced double-digit fantasy points in 6 out of 7 of his last starts.

In those 7 games, Patrick has averaged 80.5% of the Broncos total Offensive snaps showing that though his health has been in recent question, his usage has remained consistent.

After being a role player the last two seasons, the Broncos receiver has begun to come into his own and make athletic plays turning heads all around the league.

Denver being in an obvious rebuilding year, Patrick looks to build on his career season for his future whether it is for the Broncos or elsewhere. 

Curtis Samuel

Other than the Panthers Week 10 blow out loss, it has been surprisingly hard to find a more reliable WR2/Flex option than Curtis Samuel in the last 6 weeks.

Samuel has only scored less than 17.3 PPR points once out of the last five weeks. What might be more surprising is that Samuel hasn’t seen more than 76% of the snaps in that period and 68% in his most recent outing.

Samuel has separated himself talent-wise from DJ Moore and Robby Anderson by being more dynamic by making the most of his touches but there could be more 4 point games like in Week 10 with this type of snap share.

I think that he has been scoring fantasy points at an amazing rate but I do believe his productivity will come back down to earth once Christian McCaffery comes back as the team’s centerpiece. 

Damiere Byrd

Jacoby Myers truthers were left shaking their heads Monday morning at the Damire Byrd performance in Week 11.

Quarterback Cam Newton had made Myers the #1 receiver the last two weeks but that came to a halt with the breakout performance from Byrd.

This season Byrd has averaged a 91.6% of the total Patriots snap share this season. Myers has been the latest standout in this anemic offense, but Byrd’s participation has been consistent, though his output has been far from.

This could be due to the conservative play-calling of the New England Offense that runs 50.7% of the time (3rd most in the NFL) giving Byrd limited receiving opportunities. Byrd is worth a stash spot but I would hold off on starting him on anything less of an emergency.
