This article is part of our Hidden Stat Line series.
If you didn't catch it already, check out Hidden Stat Line: Week 2 Backfield Usage for Every NFL Team. In addition to the usual stat leaderboards and team-by-team recaps, this week's edition includes a 1-10 ranking of the top RB waiver adds this week.
The injury bug didn't have as much of a fantasy impact at other positions, but we still have plenty to discuss in our usage breakdowns below, focusing on wide receivers and tight ends. It was an especially big week for the TE position, though in some cases the pretty stat lines weren't backed by heavy usage in terms of snaps, routes or targets (REGRESSION WARNING).
We also saw some encouraging performances from rookie wide receivers, including KJ Hamler, Chase Claypool and CeeDee Lamb. On the other hand, we'll take a closer look at disappointing veterans like DJ Chark and T.Y. Hilton, hoping to find explanations for the lackluster production.
Due to time constraints, the game-by game recaps will initially be posted Tuesday afternoon with only 11 of 16 games available (TNF plus the 10 early Sunday contests). We'll add the other five games and stat leaderboards as soon as they're ready for consumption.
