RotoViz staff and writers join with the rest of the NFL community in praying for Damar Hamlin. His Chasing M’s Foundation, originally established to fund children’s initiatives like toy drives and kid camps, is one of many examples of Hamlin’s generosity and spirit. The go-fund-me campaign has now raised over $6 million. You can contribute here.

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.

Before we get into it, I, the RotoViz team, and the football community wish Damar Hamlin a speedy recovery. Damar is a fantastic person, and our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

Welcome to the final installment of the Wide Receiver Usage Trends And Takeaways series of the 2022 season.

While most people concluded their fantasy season this past week, some leagues have Week 18 championships. This week’s article will give some great info for both Week 18 championships and DFS, as well as some long-term outlooks and takeaways for certain players.

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 RB 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).

*Routes for Monday’s game are not included
