Snaps Per Minute Week 2 2018

Snaps Per Minute Week 2 2018 report covers players like running backs, wide receivers and tight ends in a team’s lineup.

A majority of snaps are going to what players and which ones are in line to produce statistically weekly in fantasy football?

Fantasy just got a whole lot better thanks to Monkey Knife Fight. With fast-paced games like Rapid Fire and Either/Or, it’s never been easier to play fantasy and win. New to MKF? Get Exclusive $100 Deposit Match + Free $5 Game >

The Snaps per Minute of Possession report will help you: identify the early leaders for such production.


Identify the leaders for such production.

Identify Weekly Change at the Team, Positional and Player Levels

The Snap Report can be a positive indicator because it’s easier for players to score more when given the opportunity.

Conversely, the weekly ‘Snap Report’ can identify when players fall out of favor or when game flow or player movement occurs due to injuries.

It’s useful to compare the weekly snap leaders to rushing attempt leaders and target leaders to get a feel for how a player is used for fantasy football purposes. See other reports


TEAM Snaps Per Minute Table and Graph

This is a data “Snapshot” of each teams activities and speed of play. The Avg Team Snaps/Minute give insight into the team’s speed. A highly involved pass catcher player on a fast team is worth knowing! Also looking at slow teams can give the insight to run heavy teams.

I also included the team’s Fantasy Points per Game as well. Many of these “fast” team have poot FP production. They are going fast as nothing is working well. But a team like TB is the exception. This team cannot continue being this fast and good? Can they? They stand out in the Fast Teams.

Note the Slower teams have more that have done better in FP production. They can control the game scripts. Use wisely for week 3 DFS and lineups.

Snaps Per Minute Slide1


ARI, SEA, BUF, TB, DET, Hou, and DAL are the Fastest NFL teams from Weeks 1 and 2 Again key players in those teams are being given more opportunity but the team could be fast as they are NOT very good. Fast teams can have more passing opportunities. Also, the inverse can be found that fast teams are poor productive teams. One must tease out the data. See above

The slowest teams GB, NYJ, PHI, CIN, MIN, BAL, WAS, and CHI certainly have key players but they must be more efficient to overcome the slow team pace. Alternatively, the teams are so good that they jump ahead and slow it down! Slow teams tend to have stronger rushing players.

Players from slower teams that are highly ranked may be worth more than thought. Dynasty players take note here!

Note for your watch list, I added green stars to Teams that seem to not fit in within the surrounding fast or slow teams. Maybe there issues that will come to light. Caution on these teams. 


TEAM vs Positional Speed in Snaps per Minute For the Season

Table Usages

Use these tables to determine what teams are using their RB, TE, and WRs faster (Snaps per Min). Faster could equal more chances to score! I have included a nice visual view of this data to further burn into your thinking!

I want you to realize within this and other reports on targets and attempts, that I can not catch everything. Readers need to dig and question the reasons why these metrics exist. These reports to annotate the tops and bottom via colorization as well as display team, team positional and player level metrics. This report takes time for me and it is done because I would not depend on Data lists and Player names, I want more ways to “see” the metrics!

Metrics Included

Included here in this section are the positions in each team with the Avg of Player Snaps Per Minute from Weeks 1 and 2 data. I also include team usage metric for each position. 

Understanding team usages give you a view at the landscape level to fine-tune waivers and lineups. WRs on high usage team might be better than those lower usage teams! Note Dark Blue is high Usages vs Red indicate lower usages. I included the league average of positional usages in the first figure.

RB, TE, and WR POSITIONAL USAGEs in Weeks 1 and 2.

Running Backs

RB Highest Speed By Team and % Usage


I added tier markers of yellow arrows in the landscape plot! 

The plotted data clearly defines 

CHI, TEN, PIT, SF, DAL, MIA, GB, BAL, LAR, NYJ, and Min are biased to the rushing RB in the league.

SEA, OAK, NYG, KC, ARI, JAX, NO, and BUF were biased other positions



TEs Highest Speed and % Usage


NO, SEA, IND, ARI, TEN, and KC are more biased to the TE usage

DET, LAR, GB, MIA, LAC, CHI, HOU, and CLE are biased to other positions. 


Wide Receivers

WRs Highest Speed and % Usage


DET strongly biased to the WRs. NYG, LAC, BUF, HOU, OAK, LAR, WAS and CLE are biased to the WRs

TEN, ATL, DAL, PIT, and SF are using other positions more than WRs relative to league average usages. 


Players Snaps per Minute Segmented by Position

The following are all the RBs, TEs, and WRs who recorded a snap in week 1.

In the tables below, Running Backs, Tight Ends, and Wide Receivers position snap numbers are presented!

Green coloring of the Snaps Per Minute numbers denotes the players at the top of the position of the weekly snap count while red coloring of the weekly snap numbers denotes the players at the bottom of the position snap count.

The DIFF METRIC measures the change from Week 2 vs Week 1. Players with positive DIFF improved vs negative DIFFs declined in Snaps per Min!

I like to ease through the table to spot interesting information. I would modify opinions based on the data unless you should not! 🙂

FYI I have as the last figure the interesting players I noted using the DIFF metric. Proceed to that figure if needed.

Color-coded view of each team’s positional players and their Snaps per Minute. Easily compare the Team’ RBs TEs, and or WRs.

Spot the surprises. FYI I sorted by W1/2 Average Data for a better view.
