Market Share Report: Stefon Diggs' Breakout Is Here
Even in its most bizarre weeks, there's always an element of predictability in the NFL.
Sure, the New York Giants and New Orleans Saints may not have had the big-time shootout we expected, but Odell Beckham once again led the Giants in targets with 11 while Brandin Cooks was the Saints' top dog with nine targets.
The New England Patriots' offense may have been in disarray after Jimmy Garoppolo's injury, but they still fed LeGarrette Blount four carries in the red zone, exactly as you'd expect given his role in the past.
And even though the ever-dependable Antonio Brown had a rough go, he still finished Week 2 with 11 targets, more than twice as many as any other player on the team. He's going to be just fine.
We can't predict results in the NFL, but past usage can give us a solid idea of what to expect in the future. That's why looking at things such as market shares is so vitally important, regardless of what type of fantasy league in which you're playing.
