In this weekly article, Ryan Ramsarran uses the Advanced Stat Explorer and other RotoViz tools to dive deep into wide receiver usage trends. Usage is key for making waiver wire adds, start/sit decisions, and finding the next blow-up WR in DFS.

Week 3 has concluded and once again had some exciting games, amazing plays, and unfortunately some injuries. Some notable WR injuries/absences in Week 3:

  • Keenan Allen (hamstring)
  • Mike Evans (1 game suspension)
  • Tee Higgins (left the game early with a possible concussion – returned in the second half)
  • Amon-Ra St. Brown (left the game briefly with an ankle injury – currently questionable)
  • Hunter Renfrow (concussion)

Before we get into the advanced stats (which you can find in our Advanced Stat Explorer), take a look at this fantastic catch by Tee Higgins, which unfortunately did not count:

Routes Run and Routes per Target

Routes run is the first key statistic I’ll focus on because WRs need to be on the field to produce. The second statistic is routes per target. Unlike RBs usage, targets are earned as a WR and routes per target is a helpful measure in figuring out which players are good (or which players coaches want to get the ball to).
