This season, Zachary Krueger will use the RotoViz Screener Tool to evaluate player red-zone opportunity. Understanding how teams deploy their red-zone personnel, and who they give red-zone opportunities to, can offer a valuable edge over your opponents. This weekly Red Zone Report aims to give you that exact edge.

We’re back for another dive into some weekly red-zone data. Week 6 brought a lot of exciting performances for players in regards to overall volume and red-zone opportunity. Here’s a look at some players who flourished in the red zone in Week 6, and have me excited for Week 7.

D’Andre Swift

In Week 6 against the Jaguars, D’Andre Swift had his long-awaited breakout game. He turned 14 carries and four targets into 123 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns, finishing with 27.3 PPR (RB3).

Moreover, Swift received four opportunities in the red zone last week, after having just five red-zone opportunities through the first four weeks. Swift turned his four red-zone opportunities into 13.0 PPR points, with both of his touchdowns coming in the high-value area of the field.

On the year, the Lions’ backfield has been surprisingly valuable in the red zone, despite giving way to Adrian Peterson on 48.4% of their RB red-zone touches. Detroit’s running backs have posted the ninth most PPR points in the red zone (53.5), despite having the 13th most expected points in the red zone (43.2).

As an encore to his Week 6 breakout, Swift gets a juicy matchup in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons. Over the last five weeks, the Falcons have allowed the 17th most PPR points to opposing RBs. Of those five games, two featured games against less than stellar opponents in the Bears and Vikings.
