The short left zone is one that’s populated by studs of all positions. D’Andre Swift and Najee Harris might not be receiving “studs” in the traditional sense, but they’ve been focal points in their respective offenses through the first five weeks of the season. The wide receivers speak for themselves here. The only tight end on the list is Travis Kelce. Just over 40% of his targets have gone to this section of the field.

This list doesn’t feature any running backs, but it does feature the next best fantasy tight end behind Travis Kelce. Darren Waller has seen a third of his targets go to this section of the field. Darnell Mooney is an interesting name here. He has an excellent WOPR and an aDOT over 10 yards, but he’s still being featured in the short right portion of the field, as well. Here’s a look at some of the most prominent names on the list and their outlook for this weekend.
