3.1% Projected Ownership
Pitts had his blowup game in London in Week 5, finally aligning with the elite usage he’s been seeing. Pitts is only playing 28.5% of his snaps as an in-line, traditional TE. This means that he is playing in the slot or out wide over 70% of the time, which has kept him running routes and commanding targets, rather than blocking.The Dolphins have been stingy against TEs, but they are allowing top 6 adjusted fantasy points to WRs, which is essentially what Pitts plays.
2.1% Projected Ownership
Higbee ran a season-high 86% of the routes for the Rams offense last week and has seen a 15%+ target share in 2 of his last 3 games. The Rams currently have the biggest mismatch on the slate with a 74.8% combined DVOA advantage of their offense against the Lions' defense.
