PFF’s fantasy football recap focuses on player usage and stats, breaking down all the vital information you need to achieve fantasy success in 2022.

Be cautiously optimistic about Javonte Williams: The second-year running back started the game over Melvin Gordon III, something he didn’t do last season. Both backs were used significantly, but Williams was the man more often than last season.

The Broncos have a clear slot receiver: Jerry Jeudy was often the Broncos’ slot receiver despite K.J. Hamler having that role when he was last healthy in 2020.
Avoid all tight ends from this game: Two tight ends scored a touchdown while another gained over 50 receiving yards, but these tight ends will be impossible to predict from one week to another.
The Seahawks running backs haven’t changed from last season: The Seahawks running back usage was predictable, as Rashaad Penny played early downs while Travis Homer took third downs.
