What are the limitations of NFL depth charts?Not all teams fit into the mould of having the exact same starting positions on the field. For example, the 2018 and 2019 LA Rams made 11-personnel (three wide receiver sets) their base formation. That means that a WR3 on the LA Rams was far more valuable to your NFL DFS and fantasy football lineups, than a WR3 on another team (Robert Woods, Brandin Cooks, Cooper Kupp). The Philadelphia Eagles are another example of a team that has run an unconventional offence of late, opting for a great deal of 12-personnel (two TE sets) in their formations. Both Dallas Goedert and Zach Ertz might have fantasy value, despite the important to check out all the information available to you on Awesemo.com.
