DFS Roundtable: Decipher the Depth Chart

The DFS team discusses clarity for select NFL depth charts

Which depth charts do you have clarity of thought for Week 15 lineups? Which are clearly ones to stay away?

  • 49ers running backs
  • Steelers running backs
  • Patriots running backs
  • Dolphins wide receivers
  • Seahawks wide receivers
  • Bengals wide receivers
  • Buccaneers wide receivers (beyond Chris Godwin)


49ers running backs -- Kyle Shanahan loves to zig as we're expecting a zag, but how can you not view Raheem Mostert as the lead back? Mostert has 42 snaps in the last two games compared to 12 for Matt Breida and 11 for Tevin Coleman. And Mostert has made the most of his opportunity, putting up huge games and looking the part running inside, outside, and catching passes.

Bengals wide receivers -- Tyler Boyd's role is locked in. He's played at least 75% of the team's snaps in every game, regardless of who else is healthy. John Ross' return poses a threat to the other receivers, particularly Auden Tate. Tate's snap count fell to 39% from the 80% level upon Ross' return. Boyd is the only Bengals receiver you can trust right now, but Ross is a lottery ticket play because he can score two deep touchdowns on two targets. Ross is only viable if you're doing heavy multi-entry GPP builds.
