Foster instantly becomes a must-start and likely LB1 once fully healthy.

:yes:

Was so looking forward to having my 4 LBs locked and loaded.... and then Jatavis Brown takes a dump.

PHI at CAR

Malcolm Jenkins was the only Eagle to play all 82 snaps. Rodney McLeod, Jalen Mills, Patrick Robinson and Nigel Bradham played 90%+. Jordan Hicks only played 34 snaps before leaving with an ankle injury. This allowed Mychal Kendricks to play 55 snaps, only the second time he had topped 28 snaps in a game this year (The other time was Week 3 when Hicks was also banged up.). Kendricks produced with 12 solos, 5 assists and 1 TFL. Kendricks almost doubled Bradham, the #2 in tackles, who ended with 7 solos and 3 assist with 1 TFL and 2 PDs. Ronald Darby was expected back in Week 7, but it doesn’t sound like he’ll be ready yet. It may be another week of Mills and Robinson with rookie Rasul Douglas coming in for nickel snaps. Brandon Graham left the game temporarily with a shoulder injury. He ended with 62 snaps. The other three DEs, Vinny Curry, Chris Long and Derek Barnett, all played between 39 and 41 snaps. Fletcher Cox returned from injury and was on the field for 62 snaps.

 

Mike Adams and James Bradberry played all 62 defensive snaps. The big news here was Luke Kuechly left the game after 30 snaps and was in the concussion protocol. Kuechly avoided a concussion which is great. David Mayo came in and played the remaining 32 snaps in Kuechly’s place. Thomas Davis actually outsnapped Shaq Thompson for the first time since Week 3, 55 to 53. Daryl Worley was benched in this game after the first 2 series. He ended with 23 snaps. Kevon Seymour, who was traded from Buffalo prior to the season, replaced him and played 39 snaps. With Kurt Coleman and Demetrious Cox still out, Colin Jones and Jarius Byrd played almost exactly the same snaps they played the week before. Mario Addison’s snaps dropped this week. Addison only played 24 snaps this week, the fewest of the four DEs. Charles Johnson played 43 snaps, Julius Peppers played 30 snaps and Wes Horton played 27 snaps.

 

CHI at BAL

Eddie Jackson, Adrian Amos, Kyle Fuller and Prince Amukamara all played 73 snaps. Danny Trevathan and Leonard Floyd played 72 snaps. Floyd only had 2 assists. So even with all the snaps, he’s going to be boom/bust. Christian Jones played the other ILB and was on the field for 56 snaps. Jones ended with 4 solos and 4 assists. Amos continues to put up stats. He had 6 solos, 2 assists, 1 TFL and 2 PDs including a 90-yard pick-six. Amos was a 5th round pick in 2015. He had been forced to play FS early on. Now that the Bears have drafted Jackson, Amos is allowed to play SS/box-Safety which he’s much more comfortable at. He’s earning his spot going forward. The Bears need to take a shotgun approach and spend all of their draft picks on WRs. Amos might be solidifying his spot going forward. Eddie Goldman had his best game on the year with 6 solos and 1 TFL on 47 snaps.

 

Eric Weddle and Tony Jefferson played all 80 snaps. CJ Mosley played 79 snaps. Brandon Carr played 78 snaps. Matt Judon played 70 snaps. Judon put together 12 solos, 2 assists, 2 sacks and 4 total TFLs. 70 snaps is a ton for an OLB, obviously helped by this game going into overtime. Judon’s most snaps previously this year had been 58 back in Week 2. I’m not rushing to my waiver wire to pick up Judon. This feels like an outlier, but maybe he earned more snaps going forward. Patrick Onwuasor played 66 snaps, that’s 83%. Kamalei Correrra played 7 snaps. If Onwuasor is still on your waiver wire, he’s worth a roster spot in decent-sized leagues. He put up 5 solos and 2 assists. Jordan Howard had 36 carries in this game. With Mitchell Trubisky slinging passes, it looks like the Bears are going to be very conservative. Start your ancillary tacklers against Chicago.

 

MIA at ATL

Kiko Alonso, Lawrence Timmons, Reshad Jones, Nate Allen, Xavien Howard and Cordrea Tankersly all played 57 snaps. Tankersly only had 1 solo and 1 PD so he was a disappointment. I’m curious how this plays out. I don’t think Howard is scary enough to force targets to Tankersly. I’m keeping an eye on him but I’m dropping him where I picked him up. Alonso only had 4 solos and 1 assist. His numbers are down a touch after moving from MIKE to WILL. He did carry Taylor Gabriel over his shoulder 10 yards in what will surely be Week 6’s most-giffed moment. If your league gives points for being giffed on Twitter, I want in your league... Rey Maualuga ended with 1 solo. Maualuga played only 16 snaps in his second game, down from 31 in Week 5. Stephone Anthony hasn’t dressed for the last two games so those hoping a change of scenery would return his production to his rookie year numbers have to be disappointed.

 

Keanu Neal, Ricardo Allen and Robert Alford played 67 snaps. Desmond Trufant played 64 snaps and Deion Jones played 65 snaps. With Allen back healthy, Damontae Kazee didn’t play any defensive snaps. De’Vondre Campbell played 60 snaps while Duke Riley played 35 snaps. Not sure that battle still needs to be reported on… Tak McKinley still only played the 4th most snaps at DE. Tak played 27 snaps. Adrian Claybourn retook the #1 DE role after a down week and played 34 snaps while both Brooks Reed and Derrick Shelby played 29 snaps. With a rotation like this, it really leads to boom/bust weeks solely dependent on sacks. Atlanta didn’t sack Jay Cutler once. That’s not a good sign. Vic Beasley came back from injury and played 26 snaps.

 

GB at MIN

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was the only Packer to play all 77 snaps. Blake Martinez, Kentrell Brice and Josh Hawkins all played north of 90%. A couple unexpected names on that list. Brice played 75 snaps while Josh Jones played 30 in Morgan Burnett’s absence. I think it’s past time to realize, Jones isn’t going to happen this year. Week 3 gave us a great idea of his potential, and if Martinez or Jake Ryan are going to miss any games, Jones is probably startable, but for now, Jones needs to stay on your bench. The worst part is Jones still outproduced Brice. Jones had 2 solos and 1 PD while Brice had 1 solo, 1 assist and 1 PD. Davon House and Kevin King both missed this game with injury. Hawkins played the most snaps of any of the remaining CBs. Damarious Randall played 59 snaps. The 3rd CB was Lenzy Pipkins with 46 snaps. Pipkins, a UDFA rookie with the twitter handle @Pippy_LONGsock (I mention this because how do you not mention this?) played more than double the snaps of Quinten Rollins (22 snaps). Pipkins put together 5 solos, 1 assists and 1 TFL, just surpassing Hawkins, 5 solos, 1 assists and 0.5 TFL.

 

Eric Kendricks, Harrison Smith, Anthony Harris and Xavier Rhodes played all 66 snaps. Harris played in the absence of Andrew Sendejo. Don’t rush to the waiver wire, Harris only had 2 solos. Sendejo was questionable for this game so there’s a good chance he’s back on Sunday. Trae Waynes played 61 snaps. After breaking Aaron Rodger’s collarbone, Anthony Barr later had a concussion and was forced to leave after only 28 snaps. In case he misses next week, Emmanuel Lamur stepped up and played 38 snaps, a touch more than the 9 defensive snaps he had through the first 5 weeks. Lamur ended with 3 solos and 2 assists. Everson Griffen played 56 snaps, 85% while Danielle Hunter played 50 snaps, 76%.

 

DET at NO

Jarrad Davis played 71 snaps for Detroit. Darius Slay played 69 snaps. Glover Quin had to leave this game with a concussion after playing 37 snaps. Miles Killebrew Truthers, don’t get your hopes up. Killebrew’s snaps actually dropped a bit this game. He played 27 snaps, dropping below 50% snap rate for the first time since Week 1. Charles Washington came in and played more snaps to replace Quin. Tavon Wilson played 65 snaps. After Davis, Tahir Whitehead played 63 snaps, followed by rookie Jalen Reeves-Maybin at 27 snaps, his most of the season. JRM put together 3 solos, 1 assist and 1 TFL. Haloti Ngata missed this game. Ngata has played right around 50% of snaps all season. His absence allowed A’Shawn Robinson and Akeem Spence to step up and play more snaps. Robinson made it count with 4 solos, 3 assists and the always impressive DT pick-six.

 

AJ Klein and Kenny Vaccaro were the only Saints to play all 81 snaps. Marcus Williams, Vonn Bell, Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley all played more than 90% of the snaps. Bell may be the story here with a big increase in snaps. His snaps have gone up every week this season after playing just 6 in Week 1. I already checked, he wasn’t dropped in my leagues. Bell had 4 solos, 1 assists, 2 TFLs and 1 sack (1 of 2 QB hits). If his snaps stay in the 90% range next week, he’ll be a pretty safe start going forward. Klein has played more snaps than anyone on this defense but the production just isn’t there, 3 assists and 1 PD this week. Being on the field all 3 downs is crucial for a LB, but playing SAM in base limits tackle opportunities. PJ Williams played only 2 snaps this week. He seems to have lost his job. Delvin Breaux should be back pretty soon for the Saints. Craig Robertson played 62 snaps in place of the IRed Alex Anzalone. Robertson amassed 4 solos, 7 assists, 1 sack, 1.5 TFL and 1 PD. Sheldon Rankins played 58 snaps bringing his season total to 244. He’s got 1 solo and 3 assists to show for it. He was a big name coming out of an impressive DT class last year but he’s just not producing. Alex Okafor keeps producing though, 2 solos, 1 sack and 1 PD. Okafor played 55 snaps, 2nd to Cameron Jordan’s 69 snaps. One thing to keep an eye on here was rookie Trey Hendrickson. Hendrickson surpassed Hau’oli Kikaha, 29 snaps to 21. Hendrickson had 2 PDs and 1 QB Hit.

 

NE at NYJ

Devin McCourty and Malcolm Butler played 100% of snaps. Johnson Bademosi played 90% of snaps in Stephon Gilmore and Eric Rowe’s absence. These were Bademosi’s first defensive snaps. Bademosi had 3 solos and 2 assists. Kyle Van Noy and Dont’a Hightower both played over 85% of snaps. They both had solid games with 6 solos and 1 assist. Van Noy added 2 solos and 2.5 TFLs while Hightower had 1 sack and 1.5 TFL. Elandon Roberts played 24 snaps. Jordan Richards returned to his role as a LB and played 34 snaps, his most since Week 1. Richards ended with 3 solos. The real story here is at DE. Trey Flowers played his lowest snap percentage on the season, 83%. Flowers still produced with 4 solos, 1 assist, 1 PD and 2 QB hits. Deatrich Wise played the most snaps of any game this season. Wise played 79% of snaps, just behind Flowers. Wise only had 2 assists and 1 QB hit. Based on the production Wise has had on his limited snaps, this may be the last time to “buy low” on Wise. If he keeps getting close to 80% of snaps, his production could be substantial.

 

Demario Davis, Darron Lee and Jamal Adams played 68 snaps. Morris Claiborne played 67 snaps and led the team with 7 solos, adding a PD. Marcus Maye played 66. Josh Martin returned from injury to start at OLB across from Jordan Jenkins. Jenkins, Kony Ealy, Martin and David Bass formed a rotation ensuring none of the four played enough snaps to be useful. Jenkins led the way with 38 snaps.

 

SF at WAS

Jimmie Ward and Brock Coyle played 100% of snaps. Jaquiski Tartt played all but 1 snap. The 9er who played the 4th most snaps was Solomon Thomas. Thomas played 68 snaps, 7 more than DeForest Buckner’s 61 snaps. Thomas had a day with 7 solos, 2 assists, 1 sack and 2 TFLs. Buckner had a ho-hum 4 solos, 1 assist and 1 TFL. In case you’ve been under a rock for a few days, San Francisco released Navarro Bowman, leaving rookie Reuben Foster and Ray-Ray Armstrong (82% of snaps) as their starting MIKE and WILL, respectively. Don’t get too excited about Coyle. He only played because Foster ended up missing one more game due to injury. Foster was expected to play on Sunday so there’s a good chance he plays next week. Coyle ended with 3 solos, 3 assists and 1 TFL. Arik Armstead only played 22 snaps before leaving with an injury. Armstead may end up on IR. None of the remaining DEs saw a big increase in snaps in Armstead’s absence. It actually looks like LB Eli Harold saw the biggest increase in snaps. Harold played 65% of defensive snaps. Harold’s snap percentage the rest of the year has been, 45%, 34%, 40%, 31% and 32%. Harold ended with 3 solos, 6 assists, 1 TFL and 1 QB hit. I’m going to see if Harold is available in my leagues. It would be interesting to see a LB produce enough to be useful while playing DE. It looks like Akhello Witherspoon again ate into the starting CBs snaps. Witherspoon played 34 snaps while Rashard Robinson played 53 snaps (72%) and Dontae Johnson played 56 snaps (76%). This could quickly become a situation to avoid if 3 CBs are splitting all the outside snaps with K’Waun Williams still getting all the slot CB snaps. Williams ended with the best stat line with 5 solos while Robinson had the interception.

 

Mason Foster and Zach Brown both played all 72 snaps. Martrell Spaight didn’t play a single defensive snap. My bad on that one. I still think he could be a hold for next year, but he hasn’t earned snaps this year when both Foster and Brown are healthy. DJ Swearinger played 71 snaps. Quinton Dunbar played 64 snaps. Dunbar will be filling in for Josh Norman. Dunbar ended with 6 solos, 2 assist and 2 PDs. Bashaud Breeland left the game with an injury after 39 snaps. Breeland had 6 solos and 1 PD before he left. Rookie Fabian Moreau came on to replace him and played 34 snaps. Kendall Fuller retained his nickel role and played 44 snaps. Montae Nicholson played 63 snaps. Nicholson amassed 4 solos, 2 assists and 1 PD. There may be some production there for Nicholson this year.

 

CLE at HOU

Christian Kirksey, Joe Schobert, Jason McCourty, Jamar Taylor and Jabrill Peppers played 100% of snaps. Schobert led the team in tackles with 6 solos and 7 assists. In Jamie Collins’ first game back from injury, he played 54 out of 66 snaps. Myles Garrett played 33 snaps in his second game. He added another sack to go with 2 solos, 3 assists, 2.5 TFL and 4 QB hits. Emmanuel Ogbah played the most snaps on the D-line with 40 snaps. Carl Nassib and Nate Orchard both played 50% of snaps. Trevon Coley played 36 snaps, still more than Danny Shelton at 33 snaps. Coley’s play has dropped off the last two weeks. He only had 1 solo TFL. Shelton on the other hand had 2 solos, 1 assist and 1 TFL. Safety is still a mess for Cleveland. Derrick Kindred only played 38% of the snaps and ended with 3 solos and 1 TFL. Ibraheim Campbell was on the field for 26% of snaps. Campbell had 1 assist.

 

In Houston’s first game without JJ Watt and Whitney Mercilus, Benardrick McKinney played the most snaps with 62. McKinney also led the team in tackles with 7 solos, 1 assist and 1 QB hit. Andre Hal, Zach Cunningham and Marcus Gilchrist played more than 80%. Dylan Cole only played 9 snaps. Cole still outproduced Cunningham. Cole had 2 solos, 1 assist, 1 TFL and an interception. Cunningham only had 1 solo and 1 PD. Kevin Johnson may be back soon for Houston. Kareem Jackson continues to be a solid CB. Jackson played 79% of snaps and had 2 solos, 3 assists and 1 PD. Johnathan Joseph played 70% of snaps and came away with 2 solos, 1 assist, 1 TFL and 2 picks, with one run back for a TD. Kurtis Drummond played his most snaps of the season. It was only 21 snaps, 31%. Drummond had only played 16 snaps in the first 5 weeks. Drummond amassed 5 solos, 1 TFL and a sack. Drummond is a 3rd year UDFA who was called up from the practice squad before the game.

 

TB at ARI

Kendell Beckwith played 65 snaps. Vernon Hargreaves III, Brent Grimes and Lavonte David all played more than 60 snaps. Gerald McCoy played 59 snaps. With David back, Adarius Glanton dropped down to 21 snaps. At safety, rookie Justin Evans played the most snaps with 57. He put together a second very good game with 6 solos, 1 assist, 1 TFL and 1 PD. TJ Ward returned from injury and split snaps with Chris Conte. Conte played 37 snaps. Ward played 36. Noah Spence’s snaps dropped almost in half to 32. Last week, Spence played the most snaps of any Tampa DE. This week, he was third behind Robert Ayers (47 snaps) and William Gholston (43 snaps). Each had 1 solo on the game.

 

Deone Bucannon and Tyvon Branch played all 70 snaps. Karlos Dansby, Chandler Jones, Tyrann Mathieu and Justin Bethel all played more than 90% of snaps. Tramon Williams played his first game since Week 2. He earned his snaps at Patrick Peterson’s expense. Just kidding. Peterson had to leave with a quad injury after 41 snaps. Williams played 30 in relief. Haason Reddick played 36 snaps. I can’t find anyone definitively saying they were at OLB but with Bucannon and Dansby playing all but 4 total snaps, I’m going to call it.


 

LAR at JAX

Alec Ogletree, Mark Barron and John Johnson played all 69 snaps. Trumaine Johnson played 67 snaps. JJ took a bad angle on the first Leonard Fournette run that went the distance but he played solidly after the early mistake. JJ ended up with 2 solos, 1 assist, 1 TFL, 1 PD. Lamarcus Joyner missed another game and Cody Davis played 49 snaps in his place. I dropped Kayvon Webster this week. Pretty sure that’s the second time I’ve dropped a CB about to face the Jags… Webster played 64 snaps and put together 6 solos. Connor Barwin had himself a day. On 51 snaps, Barwin had 7 solos, 1 sack and 3 TFLs.

 

Myles Jack, Telvin Smith, Tashaun Gipson, Barry Church, Jalen Ramsey and AJ Bouye played 100% of snaps. There’s not much to say here. Calais Campbell played 49 of 59 snaps. He ended with 4 solos, 1 assist, 2 sacks and 1 PD. Yannick Ngakoue played 48 snaps and ended with 1 solos and 2 QB hits. Dante Fowler Jr only played 22 snaps, which is a lot closer to Duane Smoot’s 10 snaps than Ngakoue’s.

 

PIT at KC

Ryan Shazier, Mike Mitchell and Artie Burns played 54 snaps. Sean Davis and Joe Haden played 53 snaps apiece. Vince Williams had his second really solid performance in a row despite a hip injury limiting him to 26 snaps, less than 50%. Williams had 5 solos and 2 sacks. He’s been making my bench look good lately… Tyler Matakevich came in and played 7 snaps in Williams’ absence. Matakevich had 3 solos and 1 assist on 7 snaps. He had played 6 total defensive snaps over the first 5 weeks. Davis led the team in tackles with 6 solos, 2 assists and 1 PD. JJ Wilcox only played 1 defensive snap. He’s droppable. Pittsburgh’s starting OLBs usually play 95% or more of snaps. For some reason, Bud Dupree (43 snaps) and TJ Watt (40 snaps) both came off the field more than usual for James Harrison (15 snaps) and Anthony Chickillo (11 snaps). In the two prior games where Watt and Dupree were both 100% healthy, the remaining OLBs on the depth chart had totalled 11 snaps. If you’re relying on Watt or Dupree, this is worth watching to see if it becomes a trend.

 

Derrick Johnson, Justin Houston and Ron Parker all played 64 snaps. Daniel Sorensen, Marcus Peters and Terrence Mitchell all played over 60. Sorensen is definitely back to his solid if unspectacular self with 4 solos, 4 assists and 1 TFL. Eric Murray played 13 snaps, his lowest total since Week 1, when Eric Berry was healthy. Correspondingly, Reggie Ragland played 27 snaps which is the most he or Ramik Wilson had played in any game this year. KC stayed in base as much as possible to try and prevent Le’Veon Bell from running all over them. Ragland had 3 solos and 1 assist to show for it. Kevin Pierre-Louis played 18 defensive snaps. KPL missed Week 4, but the last 3 games he’s played, he’s been on the field for 19, 21 and 18 snaps. KPL had 2 solos and 3 assists against the Steelers. They’ve been using him as a nickel and dime LB. DJ played the entire game so he’s been playing next to DJ. Again, any team I’m building for next year, I’m looking at getting him on my roster. He could be DJ’s replacement next year. The Chiefs gave up a Pro Bowl special teams LB to get KPL. That trade only makes sense if they thought KPL could be more than a Pro Bowl special teamer. Full disclosure, I picked up DJ Alexander on a few rosters last year thinking he would be DJ's heir apparent.

 

LAC at OAK

Tre Boston, Jahleel Addae, Casey Hayward and Trevor Williams played all 58 snaps. Hayes Pullard was next up with 54 snaps, followed by Joey Bosa with 51 and Melvin Ingram with 50 snaps. Jatavis Brown is battling an ankle injury so he only played 20 snaps. Korey Toomer picked up 34 snaps due to Brown’s limitations. Adrian Phillips had seen his snaps go up the last two games. Last week, he played 53 snaps. Phillips only played 7 snaps against the Raiders. Corey Liuget only played 21 snaps before exiting with a back injury. Addae only had 3 solos, 1 assist and 1 PD. Addae hasn’t been nearly as productive as Jonathan Cyprien was in the same role in Jacksonville.

 

Reggie Nelson played 65 snaps. Karl Joseph, TJ Carrie and David Amerson all played 64 snaps. Obviously LB is up in the air with Navarro Bowman signing. Odds are, it’ll be Bowman and Cory James as the primary LBs when all are healthy. So take everything from this game with a grain of salt. James played only 7 snaps with a knee injury. Tyrell Adams played 1 snap before being released. That must have been one bad snap... Nicholas Morrow played the most LB snaps with 62. An undrafted rookie named Xavier Woodson-Luster played 40 snaps. XWL put together a solid game with 4 solos and 2 assists.

 

NYG at DEN

Darian Thompson played 81 snaps. Those relying on BJ Goodson rejoice. Goodson played all but 1 snap. Goodson ended with 5 solos, 1 assist and 2 PDs. If he keeps playing close to 100% of snaps, he’ll get back to where he was in Week 1. After Goodson, Keenan Robinson played 68 snaps while Devon Kennard played 60 snaps. Eli Apple and Janoris Jenkins both played 78 snaps with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suspended by the team. Jason Pierre-Paul played 68 snaps. JPP had a day with 7 solos, 1 assist and 3 sacks. He had to make up for Olivier Vernon who missed his 2nd straight game. Landon Collins only played 52 snaps with an ankle injury. Collins had no tackles and 1 PD on the day. It's really rare you can say Collins didn't have a tackle.

 

Justin Simmons, Aqib Talib and Chris Harris played 54 snaps. Von Miller, Shaq Barret and Darian Stewart all played 50 or more. Simmons led the team in tackles with 11 solos, 2 TFLs and 2 PDs. Todd Davis outsnapped Brandon Marshall for the first time this season, 45 to 44. Odds are, this was a result of the Giants not having any WRs and Denver staying in base. Davis was 2nd on the team in tackles with 4 solos and 5 assists.

 

IND at TEN

Jon Bostic and Malik Hooker each played 70 snaps. Vontae Davis played 69 snaps. I think last week was a Jabaal Sheard week. This week, Sheard played 63 snaps while John Simon played 61 snaps. Sheard’s stat line wasn’t amazing this week, 2 solos, 1 assist and 2 QB hits, but Simon put a nice day together with 6 solos, 5 assists, 1 sack, 2.5 TFLs, 3 total QB hits and a pick six. Antonio Morrison actually outproduced Bostic on fewer snaps. Bostic had 4 solos, 1 assist and 0.5 TFL while Morrison had 4 solos and 3 assists on 59 snaps. Matthias Farley played 59 snaps to Darius Butler’s 13 snaps.

 

Wesley Woodyard, Kevin Byard and Logan Ryan all played 58 snaps. Jurrell Casey, Brian Orakpo and Adoree Jackson all were on the field for more than 50 snaps. Woodyard led the team in tackles with 6 solos and 2 assists. Jayon Brown came the closest he’s gotten to Avery Williamson’s snaps this week, 28 to 31. Williamson was more productive with 4 solos and 2 assists to Brown’s 2 solos, 1 assist and 2 PDs.

Haloti Ngata missed this game. Ngata has played right around 50% of snaps all season. His absence allowed A’Shawn Robinson and Akeem Spence to step up and play more snaps. Robinson made it count with 4 solos, 3 assists and the always impressive DT pick-six.

 

With Ngata being placed on IR and most likely done for the year is Robinson's performance a sign of things to come (other than the pick-six of course)?  That is a very good game for a DT even without the int.  Should he be picked up in DT or DT friendly scoring leagues?

He was talked up as a rookie. He was expected to emerge at some point.

The real story here is at DE. Trey Flowers played his lowest snap percentage on the season, 83%. Flowers still produced with 4 solos, 1 assist, 1 PD and 2 QB hits. Deatrich Wise played the most snaps of any game this season. Wise played 79% of snaps, just behind Flowers. Wise only had 2 assists and 1 QB hit. Based on the production Wise has had on his limited snaps, this may be the last time to “buy low” on Wise. If he keeps getting close to 80% of snaps, his production could be substantial.

 

This is interesting on Wise - thanks for picking this up. In a lot of leagues you can probably wait a week or two to see if this snap increase is real, since he hasn't had much actual production yet (and he faces the Falcons this week, which generally isn't a great marchup for pass rushers), but if he's on your waiver wire in a dynasty league, it might be worth stashing him to see what happens.

One thing with this - it's a stand alone primetime game that is going to be heavily rated.  So if he has a good game then everyone will see it.  That's why I added him.  I need to make room to fill byes next week, so if he doesn't do much then  I'll send him back and look for him after his bye.  But if he balls...

For the record... last week Chargers.com had Jatavis listed as the back-up WLB on their depth chart.

This week shows Jatavis Brown back in the starting slot. With Toomer at MLB and Pullard as the b/u MLB.

:shiny:

Based on how they’ve been using Pullard, I can’t see him as a back-up to Toomer so that’s odd.

When does Perryman return and does he make all of this Pullard/Jatavis/Emanuel/Toomer talk moot? 

I'm really curious if Jatavis is just being rested or if he'll get reduced snaps now, he played well last year and the beginning of this year but struggled in coverage, not that Pullard and the others are any better...but the fact Jatavis wasn't on the injury report makes me wonder now more than ever

For the first time, I'm legitimately concerned about Jatavis. He wasn't on the injury report and practiced in full so I assume that he was fine to go. There's no reason why he shouldn't be playing full time snaps - he's clearly their best LB and it isn't particularly close. He's on the smaller side so maybe they have concerns about him holding up over a season? It seems like they have changed things up in an attempt to fix up their defense, but I'm not sure how Jatavis playing limited snaps helps that. He's not bad in coverage either so I don't think that's the issue. On every level this is kind of baffling to me.

Well, they are 3-0 since he was "demoted".

Just more reason to be concerned if you own him (as I do)!

Quick question before we start: where do you guys look for snap count numbers? I usually look at Footballguys snap count numbers because I love their format. It makes it really easy to spot trends although you have to do the percentages yourself. Their numbers are far from perfect. They’re still missing Deatrich Wise, Matt Iaonnidis (which is why I haven’t mentioned him until now) and others. They’ve given Charles Johnson 0 snaps on multiple occasions even though he’s played both of those games. They’re also not 100% on players’ positions. Some teams have great snap counts numbers up after every game (Browns, Pats, Raiders, etc). When I need to confirm a number for other teams, I usually look at Pro Football Reference. PFR requires you to look at each player on a game by game basis on a separate page though.

 

KC at OAK

Ron Parker, Marcus Peters and Terrence Mitchell played all 82 snaps. Justin Houston, Dee Ford and Daniel Sorensen played over 90% of snaps. Philip Gaines, KC’s nickel CB, played as many snaps as Derrick Johnson, 73, which probably gives you a good idea of how many snaps Reggie Ragland, 9. That’s the fewest snaps the Ramik Wilson/Ragland role has played this season. Kevin Pierre-Louis didn’t pick up any of the slack at LB. KPL only played 5 defensive snaps, which is his lowest total since Week 2. For playing 82 snaps, Sorensen, Mitchell and Bennie Logan were the only three with really notable stat lines. Sorensen led the team in tackles with 6 solos, 3 assists and 2 TFLs. Mitchell had 6 solos and 1 assist. Logan had 4 solos, 2 assists and 0.5 TFLs on 41 snaps. Eric Murray played 55 snaps. His snap count goes up and down every other week. His last five weeks, he’s played, 46, 28, 45, 13 and 55 snaps. Murray had 4 solos and 1 assist. Allen Bailey outsnapped Chris Jones, 62 to 55. Neither had a notable stat line.

 

Khalil Mack, Karl Joseph, Reggie Nelson and TJ Carrie played 100% of snaps. In his first game in Black and Silver, Navarro Bowman played 60 of 62 snaps. Bruce Irvin played 59 snaps. Bowman led the team in tackles with 6 solos, 5 assists, 1 TFL and 1 QB hit. Nicholas Morrow played the next most snaps at LB with 38 snaps. Justin Ellis played 44 snaps at NT. This was Ellis’ third straight week with 40+ snaps after not topping more than 28 snaps through the first four weeks. In Week 5, Ellis had 1 solo and 2 assists. In Week 6, Ellis produced 4 solos and 1 assist. This week, Ellis was 3rd on the team in tackles with 3 solos, 4 assists and 1 TFL. Rookie Eddie Vanderdoes’ snaps have dropped each of the last three weeks. Rookie 7th Rounder Treyvon Hester has also seen in increase of snaps the last two weeks. Hester had 1 solo and 1 QB hit against KC. 2nd Round rookie Obi Melifonwu has been IR-designated to return. Logic would say they bring him along slowly, but it will definitely cause some changes in their snap counts. Nelson is a UFA at the end of the season so odds are, Obi will eventually replace Nelson. Nelson and Joseph have played almost every snap this season. They’ve had a 3rd safety on the field for around 25 snaps all season. Obi may force them to play big nickel on a more regular basis. If not, Nelson’s snaps could start to drop.

 

CAR at CHI

Shaq Thompson, Thomas Davis and James Bradberry played 100% of snaps, 38 out of 38. Yes. 38 total snaps. Three teams played more than double the number of snaps the Bears played on Sunday alone. Mitchell Trubisky completed 4 passes on 7 attempts. The Bears are almost an automatic avoid as an opponent for IDPs. I think I’m going to post the average number of offensive snaps per game run by every team so far this season in another post. Mike Adams played 37 snaps. Daryl Worley played 34 snaps. With Luke Keuchly out from a concussion, David Mayo played 29 snaps. Shaq led the team in tackles with 4 solos, 2 assists and 1 TFL. What can really be gathered from so few snaps?

 

Eddie Jackson, Adrian Amos and Prince Amukamara played all 72 snaps. Danny Trevathan played 70 snaps. Last week, Amos had a 90 yard interception return for a TD. This week, the rookie Jackson had himself a game, 4 solos is a nice start, a 75 yard fumble recovery for a TD coupled a 75 yard interception return for a TD means a lot of points. Amos was second on the team in tackles with 6 solos including 1 TFL. Christian Jones led the team in tackles with 9 solos, 2 assists and 1.5 TFLs. Jones did all that on a modest 58 snaps. Nick Kwiatkoski returned for this game but I don’t think he played any snaps. I can’t find any news on why but it’s definitely worth watching if you’re relying on Jones. Three quickish notes on the Chicago D-Line. Akiem Hicks played 63 snaps and I’m pretty sure he got banged up at one point and had to leave the field before returning. Hicks ended with 4 solos, 1 assist, 1 sack and 2 TFLs. Eddie Goldman played 52 snaps and had his second strong performance in a row with 5 solos, 1 assist and 0.5 sack. Goldman seems to be back to the form he was to start last year before ending on IR. He’s an automatic start in DT-required/premium leagues while he’s hot. Finally, Johnathan Bullard outsnapped Mitch Unrein for the first time this season, 38 to 28. Unrein produced more, 2 solos, 1 assist and 0.5 sack compared to Bullard’s 1 solo and 1 assist. It still bears watching as Bullard was a highly regarded when he was drafted in the 3rd Round last year.

 

TB at BUF

Kwon Alexander and Justin Evans played all 68 snaps. Lavonte David and Brent Grimes played 67 snaps. Gerald McCoy played 66 out of 68 snaps. That’s insane for a DT. McCoy had a down game statistically with 1 solo, but that’s still really impressive. David led the team in tackles with 12 solos and 2 assists. The Rookie Evans had a decent if not spectacular game with 2 solos and 4 assists. Rookie Kendell Beckwith played 53 snaps with both Alexander and David healthy again. Beckwith ended with 3 solos, 1 assist and 1 TFL. TJ Ward only played 24 snaps, splitting time with Chris Conte. Ward complained after the game that he didn’t come to Tampa to be a part time player. Chris Baker quote tweeted a story about Ward’s remarks and said “I feel the same way bro.” Baker played 30 snaps. Robert McClain played 65 snaps as Vernon Hargreaves III only played 36 snaps. Hargreaves has been struggling this year so Tampa demoted him to play nickel this game.

 

Preston Brown, Jordan Poyer, Micah Hyde and TreDavious White played 72 snaps. Lorenzo Alexander played 60 snaps. His snaps seem to have taken a hit from the Rookie, Matt Milano. Milano’s snap percentage has risen each of the three weeks he’s been filling in for Ramon Humber, 42.7%, 62.1% and 65.3%. Alexander outproduced Milano. Alexander had 7 solos and 2 assists, 2nd on the team in tackles. Milano put together 4 solos, 1 assist, 2 TFLs and an interception. After Jerry Hughes 50 snaps, Shaq Lawson played 30 snaps at DE. Eddie Yarbrough played 29 snaps. Yarbrough played 54 snaps when Lawson missed Week 4. Yarbrough hadn’t topped 23 snaps any other game this season. CFL-Eddie only had 1 solo, 2 assists and 1.5 TFLs compared to Lawson’s 1 solo and 3 assists. EJ Gaines left this game with a hamstring injury after 41 snaps. Shareece Wright came in and played 30 snaps to replace Gaines. Leonard Johnson put together 6 solos and 2 assists. Johnson played 54 snaps covering the slot. Johnson has played 45 or more snaps in all but one game this season.

 

TEN at CLE

Wesley Woodyard, Kevin Byard and Logan Ryan played all 73 snaps. Adoree’ Jackson played 70 snaps. Jayon Brown outsnapped Avery Williamson for the second time this season. Williamson led the team in tackles with 6 solos, 8 assists and 1 TFL on 35 snaps. Brown had 2 solos and 2 assists on 38 snaps. Byard had 2 solos, 2 assists, 1 TFL and 3 picks. Byard may be a semi-sneaky buy low when Johnathan Cyprien comes back from injury, which should be following their bye. Odds are, most people with Byard on their roster are true believers, but that one guy who believes more in Cyprien may be willing to trade Byard. He should continue producing once Cyprien returns.

 

Joe Shobert and Christian Kirksey played 100% of snaps. Jamie Collins played 71 out of 72 snaps. Jamar Taylor and Briean Boddy-Calhoun both played 69 snaps. Kirksey left everyone else behind. Kirksey amassed 8 solos, 9 assists and 1.5 TFLs. Jabrill Peppers missed this game with a toe injury, allowing Derrick Kindred and Ibraheim Campbell to play substantial snaps. Campbell played 69 snaps and had 2 solos and 2 assists. Kindred only played 60 snaps but put together 6 solos, 1 assists and 1.5 TFL. This may be a Kindred sell-high opportunity if someone sees his big game and doesn’t put it together with Peppers being out. Odds are Kindred’s snaps will drop when Peppers come back and there’s a good chance the Browns will draft another Safety since they haven’t shown that much trust in Kindred. At this point, I’d take a future 6th for Kindred (I do have a glut of solid safeties). Emmanuel Ogbah played 58 snaps at DE. Myles Garrett played 57 snaps, more than his first two games combined. Garrett ended with 3 solos, 1 assist and 1 sack. Nate Orchard (19 snaps) and Carl Nassib (14 snaps) are both injury stashes at this point.

 

NO at GB

AJ Klein, Craig Robertson and Marshon Lattimore played 55 snaps. Marcus Williams, Kenny Vaccaro and Ken Crawley played 54 snaps. Cameron Jordan played 52 snaps. Hauoli Kikaha was a surprise inactive. Rumor has it NO is trying to trade Kikaha. The Saints relied on Jordan, Alex Okafor (41 snaps) and rookie Trey Hendrickson (20 snaps). Okafor topped Jordan this week with 3 solos, 1 assist, 1 sack and 2 TFLs. Sheldon Rankins played 45 snaps. He had one of his better games this season with 2 solos, 1 assist and 0.5 TFL. Vonn Bell played 76 of 81 snaps (93.8%) last week. This week, he played 37 of 54 snaps (68.5%).

 

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix played 76 snaps. Blake Martinez and Kentrell Brice both played 73 or more snaps. Martinez had 13 solos and 3 assists. Just gawdy tackle numbers. Everyone’s favorite rookie Josh Jones played 52 snaps and had 3 solos. Davon House and Kevin King both returned from injury for this game. House played 67 snaps while King was on the field for 50 snaps. Action hero Josh Hawkins only played 17 snaps with everyone healthy. Quinten Rollins ended up on injured reserve.

 

JAX at IND

Myles Jack, Telvin Smith, Jalen Ramsey and AJ Bouye played 100% of snaps. Tashaun Gipson played 62 out of 67 snaps. Barry Church played 58 snaps. For the second week in a row, Yannick Ngakoue played 1 fewer snap than Calais Campbell. Campbell played 43 snaps. Ngakoue played 42 snaps. Surprisingly, Dante Fowler Jr. played 37 snaps. Ngakoue had 2.5 sacks among 7 total QB hits. Yes, 7 QB hits. Campbell had 2 sacks. Fowler had 1.5 sacks. Malik Jackson had 1.5 sacks on 41 snaps. This is the second time the Jacksonville defense has hit double digit sacks in a game this season. These guys find weaknesses in an O-line and once they smell blood in the water, it’s all over. They’ve got more sacks in those two games than 24 teams have on the season through Week 7. They hit 10 sacks in this game and the NY Jets have 10 sacks on the season. The Bucs have 7 sacks on the season. Ngakoue and Fowler both make perfect DE2s to couple with a consistent DE1. Their boom weeks could just about win it for you and their bust weeks won’t hurt as much if you’ve got a solid producer across from them.

 

Jon Bostic played 68 snaps. Vontae Davis played 65 snaps. Bostic only had 2 solos and 2 assists while Antonio Morrison played 58 snaps and had 8 solos and 5 assists. Indy got some real bad news when rookie 1st Rounder Malik Hooker tore his ACL and MCL. He's done for the season. Hooker played 28 snaps before tearing up his knee. It looks like TJ Green and Darius Butler split snaps following Hooker’s injury. Matthias Farley played 62 snaps, north of 90%. Green played 33 snaps, the most since Week 1 when Indy tried him out at CB. Butler has been up and down the last few weeks, 37, 15, 30, 13 and 23 snaps. Rashaan Melvin left this game with a concussion after 7 snaps. Rookie UDFA Kenny Moore came in and played 46 snaps, his first defensive snaps of the season. The story here may be 2nd Round rookie Quincy Wilson. Wilson played in the first game, started the second and got injured. He missed two games with the injury. He’s been healthy enough to play the last three games but hasn’t. Wilson doesn’t play much on special teams so lesser CBs are dressing ahead of him because of their ST contributions. If Melvin misses a game, there’s a good chance Wilson will get another chance. Chuck Pagano has said Wilson needs a good week in practice to get back on the field. John Simon suffered a stinger after 17 snaps. Former 1st Rounder Barkevious Mingo came in and played 41 snaps. There’s a good chance Simon misses Week 8. Mingo ended with 3 solos, 1 assist and 2 QB hits.

 

ARI at LAR (London)

Deone Bucannon, Tyvon Branch, Patrick Peterson and Tramon Williams played all 80 snaps. Chandler Jones and Tyrann Mathieu both played over 90%. Antoine Bethea played 68 snaps. Williams had 10 solos as a CB, so that’s pretty good… Bucannon and Bethea both had double digit tackles as well. Bucannon added an interception. Branch had a relatively down game with 4 solos and 1 TFL. Karlos Dansby played 62 snaps and Haason Reddick played 31 snaps. Neither is startable at this point.

 

No Rams played 100% of snaps. They didn’t need to. Alec Ogletree, Lamarcus Joyner, Trumaine Johnson and Kayvon Webster all played 44 snaps. They brought backups in to play the last 5 snaps. Connor Barwin played 42 snaps. Aaron Donald played 40 snaps and John Johnson III played 39 snaps. Not a lot of tackle opportunities in this game especially after Carson Palmer broke his arm. JJIII led the team in tackles with 4 solos and 1 assist. Try to avoid playing LBs against Arizona. This game was obviously a mess, but Ogletree and Mark Barron combined for 3 solos, 2 assists and 2 PDs.

 

NYJ at MIA

Demario Davis, Marcus Maye, Jamal Adams and Morris Claiborne played all 73 snaps. Buster Skrine played 70 snaps. Darron Lee only played 60 snaps, the same as Leonard Williams. Lee ended with 9 solos, 2 assists, 2 TFLs and 1 QB hit. The rookie safeties both had solid games. Adams had 5 solos, 2 assists, 1 sack, 2 TFLs and a PD. Maye had 3 solos, 4 assists and a pick. Mo Wilkerson played 54 snaps. He caught an interception to go with 2 solos, 2 assists and 1 QB hit. If you’re still holding onto David Bass, you can drop him. Bass played 29 snaps, behind Josh Martin (40 snaps) and Jordan Jenkins (38 snaps). Kony Ealy played 33 snaps.

 

Kiko Alonso, Lawrence Timmons and Reshad Jones played 56 snaps. Nate Allen, Xavien Howard and Cordrea Tankersly played 55 snaps. Ndamukong Suh played 53 snaps. Jones led the team in tackles with 7 solos with 1 PD. No one else even had 5 total tackles. Cameron Wake had 2.5 sacks on 32 snaps. Rey Maualuga played 24 snaps at MIKE in base packages. Mike Hull hasn’t played a defensive snap in three weeks. Andre Branch only played 18 snaps before leaving the game with a groin injury. The remaining snaps were split between Wake, Charles Harris (34 snaps), Williams Hayes (27 snaps) and Terrence Fade (7 snaps). None really saw a spike in snaps. Fade played 7 defensive snaps more than he played last week, but that’s not really a noteworthy spike.

 

BAL at MIN

CJ Mosley, Eric Weddle, Tony Jefferson and Brandon Carr played all 66 snaps. Patrick Onwuasor played 56 snaps while Kamalei Correa was on the field for 2 defensive snaps. That gives him a three game total of 10 over the last three weeks. Matt Judon followed up his breakout last week where he played 70 snaps, with a 49 snap performance, totaling 1 solo, 1 assist and 1 QB hit. Terrelle Suggs played 51 snaps. Brandon Williams returned from injury and played 45 snaps, matching Michael Pierce. The entire D-line is in flux. Carl Davis returned from missing a game and played 23 snaps. Willie Henry, after playing 68 snaps last week dropped to 11. I can’t find information on an injury to Henry. Chris Wormley’s snaps jumped last week to 54, but dropped back to 26 with Davis’ return.

 

Eric Kendricks, Anthony Barr, Harrison Smith, Andrew Sendejo, Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes played 65 snaps. Rinse and repeat. Everson Griffin played 59 snaps. Danielle Hunter played 55 snaps. None of these snap percentages waiver very much. Kendricks had a great game with 10 solos, 3 assists and 3 TFLs. Barr followed him up with 6 solos, 5 assists, 1 sack, 2.5 TFLs and 1 PD. Griffen had 2 sacks among 5 solos and 1 assist.

 

DAL at SF

No Cowboys played 100% of snaps. They didn’t need to. Byron Jones led the way with 62 snaps. Anthony Brown played 60 snaps, Jeff Heath played 59. Both Jourdan Lewis and Orlando Scandrick were on the field for 58 snaps. At LB with the all three starters healthy, Sean Lee played 49 snaps, Anthony Hitchens played 41 and Jaylon Smith played 32 snaps. Hitchens had the best stat line, leading the team in tackles, with 8 solos and 3 TFLs. Hopefully you play in IDP leagues that give kicking points. Because of an injury to Dan Bailey, Heath had to kick extra points for Dallas. He made 2 of 3.

 

Jaquiski Tartt and Jimmie Ward were the only two to play all 75 snaps. There’s a lot to unpack here. Reuben Foster was in and out of this game after getting dinged up and, by the end of the game, why risk him. Foster ended 53 snaps. Brock Coyle played 22 snaps in Foster’s absence. Ray Ray Armstrong only played 27 snaps. Armstrong has a shoulder injury which didn’t prevent him from playing. Armstrong lost snaps to Eric Reid. This was Reid’s second game since Week 2. Tartt has taken Reid’s job and Reid is a UFA at the end of the season. San Fran may be looking to drum up some trade interest in Reid, or they may just like Reid more than they like Ray Ray. Reid played 48 snaps. Ray2 ended with 5 solos vs Reid’s 4 solos. I was hoping Armstrong would be a solid dynasty stash knowing the 9ers have a ton of needs and Armstrong was under contract for one more year. Solomon Thomas outsntapped DeForest Buckner, 61 to 50. With Arik Armstead on IR, Leger Douzable played 47 snaps. I’m curious how this cobbled together D-Line worked. Douzable was resigned after playing for San Fran in the preseason. He’s a 31-year-old DT. 47 was the 3rd most snaps on the D-Line behind Thomas and Buckner. Douzable ended with 1 solo. I’m curious who was playing DE opposite Thomas. Eli Harold dropped back to his standard 31 snaps after peaking at 48 last week.  At CB, Akhello Witherspoon (35 snaps) continued to split time with Dontae Johnson (63 snaps) and Rashard Robinson (51 snaps). K’Waun Williams was on the field for 20 snaps before leaving with a quad injury. 7th Round rookie Adrian Colbert came in and replaced Williams in the slot. It looks like Williams will miss Week 8 at Philly. Johnson ended with 7 solos. San Fran seems to be doing a little spaghetti throwing. They’re throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks. I wouldn’t invest heavily in anyone outside of Buckner, Thomas, Foster and the safeties.

 

SEA at NYG

Bobby Wagner, Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman and Shaq Griffin played 59 snaps. Michael Bennett played 52 snaps while Frank Clark and KJ Wright played 50 snaps.  In Cliff Avril’s second missed game, Seattle relied heavily on Bennett and Clark. Former 1st Rounder Marcus Smith was on the field for 16 snaps after playing 37 snaps in Week 5. UDFA sophomore Brenden Jackson played 17 snaps. Jarran Reed played 32 snaps. His low on the year has been 27 while his high has been 50. I bring up Reed because he posted 7 solos, 1 sack and 3 TFLs. FA signee Bradley McDougald played 17 snaps, more than he had played in the first five games combined. McDougald played in big nickel and big dime situations, primarily lining up to cover Evan Engram. McDougald ended with 3 solos. Not much of a sign of life at this point.

 

Landon Collins and Darian Thompson played 75 out of 76 snaps. Eli Apple played 74 snaps. Jason Pierre Paul was on the field for 73 snaps. BJ Goodson was limited to an ankle injury after playing 41 snaps. Keenan Robinson led the LBs with 67 snaps followed by Devon Kennard with 53 snaps. In Olivier Vernon’s continued absence, Kerry Wynn is getting the majority of snaps opposite JPP at 51. Romeo Okwara ended up on IR, providing an opportunity to 5th Round rookie Avery Moss. Moss played 42 snaps last week and 34 snaps this week. Moss ended with 2 solos, 2 assists and 1 QB hit, topping Wynn’s 3 assists and 0.5 TFLs. The CB situation has turned into a bit of a mess. Apple was obviously on the field for the whole game. Janoris Jenkins played 67 snaps. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie only played 16 snaps back from his benching, behind Ross Cockrell and Donte Deayon. After Apple and Jenkins, none of these guys are startable.

 

CIN at PIT

Vontaze Burfict was the only Bengal to play all 69 snaps. Burfict kicked a Steeler, so he's looking at yet another suspension. This has to be the least surprising news from Week 7. Nick Vigil and Shawn Williams each played 68 snaps. Dre Kirkpatrick was the only other Cincy to top 60 snaps. Darqueze Dennard only played 39 snaps. I can’t find any news on an injury or benching to explain the reduced snap percentage. Dennard did end up with 5 solos and 2 assists. William Jackson III saw an increase in snaps with 59 out of 69. Pat Sims played 40 snaps, 1 fewer than Geno Atkins at DT. I mention Sims because he tied Vincent Rey and Vigil in total tackles with 4 solos and 4 assists. Rey had his 4 solos and 4 assists on less than half the total snaps. Vigil had 3 solos and 5 assists.

 

Ryan Shazier and Sean Davis played 51 snaps. Cameron Heyward, Artie Burns and Joe Haden all played more than 90% of snaps. Stephon Tuitt missed this game so again Tyson Alualu replaced him and played 41 snaps. Vince Williams played 38 snaps. Skipping Week 6 when he had a hip injury, this was Williams’ lowest snap count in any game this season. No real notable stat lines. Shazier led the way in tackles with 5 solos, 3 assists and 1 TFL.

 

DEN at LAC

Brandon Marshall and Justin Simmons played 58 snaps. Darian Stewart played 57 snaps. Shaq Barrett played 53 snaps, more than Von Miller’s 51 snaps. Miller had 2 more sacks than Barrett. Shaq’s snap number will probably go down going forward as Shane Rey will be coming off IR. Todd Davis played 28 snaps, yet led the team in tackles with 7 solos and 3 assists. Will Parks was back to around his season average in snaps after only playing 10 last week. The Broncos are like the Vikings. You know who will be getting the snaps. There’s very little change.

 

Jahleel Addae, Casey Hayward and Trevor Williams played all the snaps. Tre Boston played 63 out of 64 snaps. Yes, Jatavis Brown only played 18 snaps. Yes, he was off the injury report. He’s unstartable for the time being. Hopefully this doesn’t turn into a Stephone Anthony situation. 5th Round LBs don’t usually hit and turn into year-after-year starters. Everyone with Blair Brown stashed, take notice and potentially sell high if he starts getting snaps and producing. Speaking of late round LBs producing, Hayes Pullard led the team in solos with 8 on 48 snaps. Last week, Melvin Ingram played 51 snaps while Joey Bosa played 50 snaps. This week, Ingram played 50 snaps while Bosa played 51 snaps. Feel free to analyze this yourself. Chris McCain only played 23 snaps. He had 2 sacks, bringing him to 5 on the season. He’s an ultimate boom/bust play if he’s facing a weak O-line and you need a boost from the DE spot. You know on a line with Bosa and Ingram, no one is paying attention to McCain. No offense if you read this Chris. Jeremiah Attaochu played his first snaps of the season with 21. He may move ahead of McCain as he gets up to playing speed.

 

ATL at NE

Keanu Neal played 74 snaps. Deion Jones, De’Vondre Campbell, Ricardo Allen, Robert Alford and Desmond Trufant all played more than 70 snaps. Duke Riley left this game with a knee injury after 7 snaps. He's having surgery to repair a torn meniscus so he'll miss multiple weeks. Converted-safety Kemal Ishmael will take his 2-down role. Ishamel played 28 snaps and was 3rd on the team in tackles with 7 solos, 2 assists and 0.5 TFLs. Tak McKinley played only 19 snaps, his fewest since Week 1. Joe Vellano played 18 snaps at DE and was waived when the Falcons signed Sean Weatherspoon for LB depth. For what it’s worth, Tak is my second favorite rookie to follow on Twitter, closely behind Juju Smith-Schuster. Juju’s bike was stolen, if you’ve seen it and turn it into the Steelers facility, AB will give you free tickets to the next game. Juju doesn’t have a car or a driver's license, he needs that bike.

 

Devin McCourty and Malcolm Butler played all 57 snaps. Kyle Van Noy, Patrick Chung, Duron Harmon and Johnson Bademosi all played 50 snaps or more. There is a conspicuous name missing from that list. Trey Flowers only played 40 snaps, fewer than Deatrich Wise (45 snaps) and Cassius Marsh (44 snaps). Flowers still produced the most, 5 solos, 1 assist and 1 QB hit compared to 2 solos for Wise and 1 QB hit for Marsh. Interesting to see though as Flowers had played north of 95% of snaps through the first six weeks. Elandon Roberts missed this game with an ankle injury. David Harris played 19 snaps in his stead, adding 2 solos and 1 assist. Dont’a Hightower only played 34 snaps as he was in and out with a shoulder injury. UDFA Rookie DT Adam Butler played 28 snaps. His snaps peaked over 40 a week in Weeks 2 and 3 but had but had dropped to the 10-20 range from Weeks 4-6. Butler contributed 2 solos, 1 assist and 1 sack. Lawrence Guy and Malcolm Brown both played their fewest snaps of the season although Brown was limited with an ankle injury.

 

WAS at PHI

Zach Brown, Mason Foster and Montae Nicholson played all 65 snaps. DJ Swearinger and Quinton Dunbar (filling in for Josh Norman) played 64 snaps. Kendall Fuller added 54 snaps while Bashaud Breeland contributed 53 snaps. Brown was a signed very late. He was a free agent for awhile. He amassed 10 solos, 3 assists, 1.5 sacks and 4.5 TFLs. That’s more than double the team’s 2nd highest tackler and triple the team’s 2nd highest sacker. Matt Ioannidis led D-linemen with 44 snaps. With Jonathan Allen on IR, Ioannidis should continue seeing plenty of snaps. Matt (I can’t keep typing Ioannidis, it requires too much concentration) should rebound from his 1 assist performance.

 

Nigel Bradham, Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod and Jalen Mills played 64 snaps. Jordan Hicks played 2 snaps before he ended up on IR with an achilles injury. Mychal Kendricks missed this game with a hamstring injury, but if he can play going forward, he’s going to produce. Najee Goode played 49 snaps in relief of Hicks. Goode had played 26 defensive snaps through the first six weeks. Goode ended with 5 solos, tied for 2nd on the team for tackles. Jenkins, meanwhile, amassed 10 solos with 1 sack. Speaking of sacks, 1st Round rookie Derek Barnett played 36 snaps, 3rd among DEs behind Brandon Graham (44 snaps) and Chris Long (38 snaps). Barnett outpaced both with 2 sacks. Vinny Curry only played 27 snaps. He seems to have been passed by the rookie. Timmy Jernigan also saw his snaps drop for the second straight week. The Eagles ended with more of a rotation next to Fletcher Cox. Jernigan played 17 snaps. Beau Allen played 21 snaps. And Destiny Vaeao played 22 snaps in his first game back from injury. Philly really needs Ronald Darby back. After Mills, four different CBs played with none playing more than 46 snaps.

Juju’s bike was stolen, if you’ve seen it and turn it into the Steelers facility, AB will give you free tickets to the next game. Juju doesn’t have a car or a driver's license, he needs that bike.

:lmao:

Great work as always. Ishmael, a safety, moving to linebacker sounds like an incredible opportunity for ww production.

Quick question before we start: where do you guys look for snap count numbers?

I like Football guys format too, but occasionally use Football Outsiders. It's format sounds a lot like PFR's as it relates to snap counts. It's a bit cumbersome, but there's a ton of great info there.

Khalil Mack, Karl Joseph, Reggie Nelson and TJ Carrie played 100% of snaps. In his first game in Black and Silver, Navarro Bowman played 60 of 62 snaps. Bruce Irvin played 59 snaps. Bowman led the team in tackles with 6 solos, 5 assists, 1 TFL and 1 QB hit. Nicholas Morrow played the next most snaps at LB with 38 snaps. Justin Ellis played 44 snaps at NT. This was Ellis’ third straight week with 40+ snaps after not topping more than 28 snaps through the first four weeks. In Week 5, Ellis had 1 solo and 2 assists. In Week 6, Ellis produced 4 solos and 1 assist. This week, Ellis was 3rd on the team in tackles with 3 solos, 4 assists and 1 TFL. Rookie Eddie Vanderdoes’ snaps have dropped each of the last three weeks. Rookie 7th Rounder Treyvon Hester has also seen in increase of snaps the last two weeks. Hester had 1 solo and 1 QB hit against KC. 2nd Round rookie Obi Melifonwu has been IR-designated to return. Logic would say they bring him along slowly, but it will definitely cause some changes in their snap counts. Nelson is a UFA at the end of the season so odds are, Obi will eventually replace Nelson. Nelson and Joseph have played almost every snap this season. They’ve had a 3rd safety on the field for around 25 snaps all season. Obi may force them to play big nickel on a more regular basis. If not, Nelson’s snaps could start to drop.

Derail #1 - It's Silver and Black, not Black and Silver.  That's like saying Team America's or Gate of Spying.

Derail #2 - This my pet peeve, but there is no IR-return designation.  It's just IR.  All players on IR are eligible to return up until the team activates a second one

Football outsiders is what I use as well.  Only issue with it is that it's not available until Wednesdays and my waivers go through Tuesday night.  But it has been super helpful me in the past with getting a jump on my league with guys like Burfict in the past. 

Thanks again ChicagoArch.  Great writeup.  Learned some good info like Duke Rily out a few weeks which makes Campbell look good for a while especially with Atlanta's offense struggling.  Also M Kendricks could be a stud now that Hicks is out.  Every time he gets a chance to play, he just produces.

agreed on #2, but while the designation isn't used anymore and subject to change, the Raiders have him back practicing and have said he will be....clearly he could get re-injured or whatever and they can likely change that but it's not really a derail.

DAL at SF

Ray Ray Armstrong only played 27 snaps. Armstrong has a shoulder injury which didn’t prevent him from playing. Armstrong lost snaps to Eric Reid. This was Reid’s second game since Week 2. Tartt has taken Reid’s job and Reid is a UFA at the end of the season. San Fran may be looking to drum up some trade interest in Reid, or they may just like Reid more than they like Ray Ray. Reid played 48 snaps. Ray2 ended with 5 solos vs Reid’s 4 solos. I was hoping Armstrong would be a solid dynasty stash knowing the 9ers have a ton of needs and Armstrong was under contract for one more year.

Even though Ray Ray played the shoulder injury did hinder his playing time. I wouldn't take this is a trend and would wait to make any decisions until you see this as a pattern when fully healthy.

. I don’t think Marcell Dareus and Adolphus Washington have both been healthy since Week 1, when Dareus played 34 snaps to Washington’s 15 snaps. In Week 5, Dareus played only 22 snaps to Washington’s 33 snaps. Both had 1 solo and 1 assist, but Dareus’ solo was a sack. It might be time to try and sell Dareus on his name. Brown and Humber will both be UFAs at the end of the year. Milano was a 5th Rounder this year. Tanner Vallejowas a 6th Rounder. If they don’t resign Brown, I can’t imagine his replacement is currently on the roster.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Dareus a Jag now...everything I've read doesn't even mention Adolphus as a replacement...that'll be annoying!

PUBLISHED SUN OCT 29 6:31:26 P.M. ET 2017 

(USA Today Fantasy Sports) Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers DE Solomon Thomas (knee) has a sprained medial collateral ligament, after a preliminary evaluation. It appears to be better news, although he is still expected to miss some time.

Douzable 81% and last I saw he had five tackles and two sacks so considering the amount of snaps he played he could be very usable in Thomas's stead.

Anyone know what happened with Farley yesterday?  He's been a pretty solid producer this year before the goose egg yesterday.  Colts.com shows him in for all 56 snaps yesterday.

Seems to be a fluke, he played a hundred percent of the snaps. It happens

Cheat code detected, but unfortunately we may never get to use it.  Shareece Wright, tre'davious White, and Trae Elston all played 98% of the snaps, and Slot corner Leonard Johnson played 91% that's because Trae Elston who's listed as a corner played the whole game in Jordan poyers position at safety and had a field day.

I had him and Jarrad Davis both play all or the majority of their games and got 1 solo and 1 assist out of the two of them. Chances are good that I'm going to lose this week because of those two fluky stat lines. Very frustrating.

I am in the exact same boat.......but that boat also included Melvin Ingram (1 solo) and Danielle Hunter (1 solo).  Terrible day.

Ugh! I also have Hunter. 

Fortunately for me, most of the rest of my IDPs (we play 11 total) had good days, but Farley and Davis are going to haunt me if I lose this matchup tonight...and I think it's probable.

I guess it's officially panic time on Jatavis Brown. Very disappointing.

Brown was never going to be a long term factor in the middle. He is built as a rotational pass rusher and that is what he's going to be for the foreseeable future. It's going to be Denzel Perryman time from as soon as he's back.

Also, the Chargers right now are subpackaging safeties instead of LBs, so there is that too.

Huh?  He's 5'11" and 220.  He's a run-and-hitter, he's not a pass rusher.  I don't watch the Chargers but I don't think he's lining up at Mike, I think that's Pullard.  Brown is a pure Will.  His problem is that he's not healthy, nothing more.  Dude was a missile before the ankle injury.

I hope that is the problem but he's been a full practice participant the last two weeks. I don't know why he's basically in an even three man rotation at WIL - it makes no sense to me. He's their best LB and I don't think it's close. Especially weird because the Chargers get criticised for the run defense and that's where h can really help.

MIA at BAL

Lawrence Timmons and Kiko Alonso played all 65 snaps. Reshad Jones, Xavien Howard and Cordrea Tankersly all played more than 90% of snaps. Timmons and Alonso were 1st and 2nd on the team in tackles. Timmons had 8 solos and 5 assists. Alonso amassed 8 solos and 1 assist. Ndamukong Suh played 54 of 65 snaps. Andre Branch missed this game with a groin injury. This led to 1st Round rookie Charles Harris leading the DEs in snaps for the second straight week. Harris was on the field for 49 snaps. William Hayes and Cameron Wake both played 34 snaps. Terrence Fede played 19 snaps. None of them produced a notable stat line. Nate Allen left this game with a calf injury. His loss allowed Michael Thomas to play more snaps than he played in the six games combined. Thomas had 3 solos and 1 assist on 49 snaps.

 

Tony Jefferson, Eric Weddle and Brandon Carr played all 66 snaps. CJ Mosley, Jimmy Smith and Terrell Suggs all played between 80-90% of snaps. Carr actually led the team in tackles with 7 solos. Patrick Onwuasor played 67% of defensive snaps and ended with 3 solos. His role is similar to Vince Williams. He’s a desperation bye week fill-in in anything but the absolutely deepest of leagues. In better matchups, he can still put up stats but he’ll never be an LB1. For those that picked up Matt Judon following his big week a few weeks ago, Judon played 43 snaps (half as many snaps as his blowup game) and had 2 solo TFLs. Second Round rookie Tyus Bowser got his first sack of the season. Bowser only played 13 snaps.

 

MIN at CLE (London)

Erik Kendricks, Xavier Rhodes and Harrison Smith played 59 snaps. Anthony Harris, Trae Waynes, Anthony Barr and Everson Griffen all played over 90% of snaps. Danielle Hunter was next with 47 of 59 snaps. Harris played because Andrew Sendejo was suspended for the game because of a hit on Mike Wallace. Griffen has now had a sack in every game this season. It was Griffen’s only tackle, but it was only 1 of his 5 QB hits. Kendricks led the way in tackles with 8 solos, 1 assist, 1 TFL, 2 PDs and 1 QB hit. He should be proud of himself, because this was a London game, each team only got 2 assists and he got 1 of them. Smith had 7 solos and 1 TFL. The Vikings are probably the most boring team to write about because it’s so repetitive. You know who’s playing the snaps every week.

 

Joe Schobert and Christian Kirksey played 85 snaps. The Vikings dominated time of possession. Jamie Collins Sr. and Jamar Taylor played 84 snaps. Schobert led the way with 11 solos and an interception. Briean Boddy-Calhoun injured his hamstring after playing 72 snaps. Myles Garrett missed this game with a concussion. Emmanuel Ogbah played the most snaps at DE with 67. Carl Nassib was second with 57 snaps. Nate Orchard was third with 46 snaps. Nassib was the only one with a notable stat line with 3 solos, 1 sack and 2 PDs. With fellow rookie 1st Rounder Jabrill Peppers out again, Ibraheim Campbell played the most snaps of any safety with 68. Derrick Kindred was on the field for 65 snaps. Campbell had 7 solos and 1 TFL while Kindred had 4 solos and 3 TFLs. This is still a situation to avoid going forward. Rookie UDFA Kai Nacua played 18 snaps, his first of the season. He didn’t get on the stat sheet but he is “well known” for sucker punching Memphis player Alan Cross during the 2014 Miami Beach Bowl. Trevon Coley missed this game with a neck injury while Larry Ogbunjobi missed with a groin injury. This allowed 6th Round rookie Caleb Brantley to log 47 snaps, the same as Danny Shelton. Both DT ended with 2 solos. Shelton added a TFL and a QB hit.


 

CHI at NO

Eddie Jackson and Adrian Amos both played 61 snaps. Danny Trevathan and Kyle Fuller played 60 snaps. Leonard Floyd and Akiem Hicks played 59 snaps. Prince Amukamara played 54 snaps. Trevathan led the way in tackles with 9 solos, 4 assists and 1 TFL. Nick Kwiatkoski was active for the first time since Week 2. Kwiat didn’t take snaps away from Christian Jones though. Jones played 37 snaps while Kwiat only played 1 snaps. Jones amassed 5 solos and 2 assists. Hicks had his 4th straight game with a sack. Floyd added a sack as well which is impressive against Drew Brees. Eddie Goldman played 41 snaps and put together 4 assists. Not his best game but still solid for a DT. If you’re in a league where Bryce Callahan is useful, I’m impressed. Callahan left with a knee injury after 12 snaps. CreVon LeBlanc came in and 33 snaps. LeBlanc ended with 1 solo. I’m not rushing to the waiver wire.

 

Kenny Vaccaro, Marcus Williams, AJ Klein, Ken Crawley and Marshon Lattimore played 67 snaps. Cam Jordan played 64 snaps. Alex Okafor played 54 snaps. Sheldon Rankins played 50 snaps. Vaccaro had the only really notable stat line. He put together 6 solos, 3 assists, 0.5 sacks, 2.5 TFLs and 1 PD. Trey Hendrickson was the only other DE to play snaps. Hendrickson was on the field for 33 snaps. He added a sack and 2 assists. Vonn Bell played 45 snaps. New Orleans didn’t play a 3rd CB in this game so any time they go to the nickel, it’s Bell as the 5th DB. Bell was tied for 2nd for total tackles with 5,  including 2 solos. Craig Robertson also had 5 total tackles with 4 solos and 2 TFLs. Robertson played 46 snaps.

 

HOU at SEA

Zach Cunningham and Andre Hal played 69 snaps. Benardrick McKinney and Marcus Gilchrist played 68 snaps. Jadeveon Clowney played 67 snaps. DJ Reader played 55 snaps. That’s the most he’s played this season. He led the team in total tackles with 2 solos, 4 assists, 1 TFL and 2 QB hits. Reader played so many snaps because DE Christian Covington tore his bicep after playing 24 snaps and is out for the season. Along the D-line, 2nd string NT Brandon Dunn played 33 snaps and DE Carlos Watkins played 28 snaps. Houston has now IRed both starting DE and one starting OLB. They will need Clowney playing in multiple spots going forward. Kevin Johnson returned from injury and played 45 snaps. Seattle tested him a bit and he ended with 3 solos, 2 assists and 1 PD. Johnson was third in snaps at CB behind Kareem Jackson (66 snaps) and Johnathan Joseph (61 snaps). When Johnson is fully healthy, he’ll play the most snaps of the three. Of course, being fully healthy is something Johnson has struggled with to start his career. In the bit of news that’s meaningless for IDP, Jeremy Lane was involved in the Duane Brown trade and was headed to Texas, but he couldn't pass a physical. Seattle seems like they're done with Lane.

 

Bobby Wagner, KJ Wright, Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman and Shaquill Griffin played 71 snaps. Earl Thomas suffered a “slight” hamstring pull and only played 64 snaps. Along the D-line, Michael Bennett played the most snaps with 59. Sheldon Richardson was second with 54 snaps, followed by Frank Clark (49 snaps) and Jarran Reed (41 snaps). 37-year-old Dwight Freeney was signed to help cover the loss of Cliff Avril. He played 18 snaps in his first game, 4 snaps behind Marcus Smith II, who hasn’t really seen an increase in snaps sans-Avril with the exception of Week 5. The four notable stat lines here belonged to the two LBs and the two primary DEs. Wright had 9 solos, 5 assists and 1 TFL. Wagner had 8 solos, 4 assists and 0.5 TFL. Bennett had 4 solos, 2 assists, 1.5 sacks and 3 TFLs and Clark had 4 solos, 1 assist and 2 sacks.

 

DAL at WAS

Anthony Brown and Orlando Scandrick played 58 snaps for Team America. Sean Lee, Byron Jones and Jourdan Lewis all played over 50 snaps. The Cowboys were in sub packages quite a bit. Anthony Hitchens only played 26 snaps, only 9 more snaps than Jaylon Smith. 6th Round rookie Xavier Woods played his second highest snap total on the season with 37. Woods ended tied for 3rd in total tackles with 4 solos and 1 assist. Demarcus Lawrence played 37 snaps while David Irving and Tyrone Crawford were both on the field for 36 snaps. All three D-linemen added a sack while Irving had 2 for Team America. Washington’s O-line is so banged up. I think they’ve lost all but one of their starters on the season and they were down to their last O-linemen who was dressed Sunday night. It’s definitely a target for pass rushing D-linemen going forward and they play a bit of a murderer’s row coming up, at Seattle, Minnesota, at New Orleans, Giants, at the Chargers, Arizona and Denver.

 

Zach Brown, DJ Swearinger and Josh Norman played 68 snaps. Quinton Dunbar played 67 snaps in relief of Bashaud Breeland who missed this game with a knee injury. Norman played every snap in his first game back from injury and ended with 2 solos and 2 assists. With Deshazor Everett healthy for the first time in three weeks, he split snaps with 4th Round rookie Montae Nicholson at S. Nicholson played 54 snaps to Everett’s 12 snaps, so it’s really just a limitation of Nicholson’s ceiling rather than a chance to start Everett. With Mason Foster on IR, Martrell Spaight and Will Compton split snaps. Spaight played 38 snaps while Compton played 29 snaps. They both produced but that’s probably more due to playing Dallas than anything else. Spaight had 5 solos and 2 assists to sit behind Brown on the stat sheet. Compton had 3 solos and 4 assists. Matt Ioannidis broke his hand after 23 snaps. He may try and play through it with a club which would obviously limit his effectiveness. Ryan Kerrigan had 2 sacks on 54 snaps.

 

OAK at BUF

Navarro Bowman and Reggie Nelson played 67 snaps for the Black and Silver. Karl Joseph missed this game with a groin injury. Shalom Luani started in his place and played 68 snaps for the Black and Silver.  Luani ended with 6 solos, 1 assist and 1 PD. TJ Carrie also played 68 snaps for the Black and Silver. David Amerson and 1st Round rookie Gareon Conley missed this game with injury. Dexter McDonald played 67 snaps and put together 5 solos and 1 PD for the Black and Silver. Bowman led the team in tackles with 7 solos, 4 assists and 1.5 TFLs. The addition of Bowman or a side effect of the knee injury that is still bothering him, has taken away Cory James’ 3 down role. James played 49 snaps, fewer than Bruce Irvin’s 61 snaps. James still had 8 solos and 3 TFLs. Obi Melifonwu is expected to play next week, back from IR for the Black and Silver.

 

Preston Brown and Micah Hyde played 65 snaps. TreDavious Wright, Shareece Wright and Trae Elston played 64 snaps. Elston filled in for Jordan Poyer who missed with a knee injury. Elston, the UDFA sophomore, had a day. He led the team in tackles with 8 solos and 3 assists and added an interception for good measure. I think I saw Poyer was already practicing again so Elston’s starting snaps may already be done, but he’s potentially worth keeping an eye on. Poyer is signed through 2021 so it unless the coaches really liked him, it would need to be an injury or an opportunity on another team. Bills nickel CB Leonard Johnson played 59 out of 65 snaps. He ended with 6 solos. He had a little relevance last year with Carolina when they used him to blitz the QB quite a bit.  Johnson has topped 50 snaps in three games this year, 45 snaps in three more games and sputtered to 15 snaps in one game. Matt Milano outsnapped Lorenzo Alexander for the first time in Ramon Humber’s continued absence. Milano played 52 snaps to Alexander’s 36 snaps. Milano ended with 3 solos, 1 assist and FR for a TD. In their first game without Marcell Dareus, Kyle Williams played 47 snaps, Adolphus Washington played 38 snaps, Cedric Thornton played 23 snaps and Jerel Worthy played 14 snaps.

 

IND at CIN

Matthias Farley, Vontae Davis and Pierre Dessir played 56 snaps. Dessir played as Rashaan Melvin missed this game with a concussion. Jon Bostic played 53 snaps. Antonio Morrison played 44 snaps. Both Bostic and Morrison had 3 solos and 5 assists. Bostic added a sack and 2.5 TFLs while Morrison just added 1.5 TFLs. IRed Malik Hooker’s snaps were split fairly evenly between Darius Butler and TJ Green. Green had the better stat line with 4 solos on 23 snaps. Butler put together 1 solo and 2 assists on 33 defensive snaps. Henry Anderson played the most snaps of any Indy D-Line. Anderson also had his best game of the year with 5 solos, 2 assists, 1 sack and 3 total TFLs. Anderson was a hyped 3rd Round rookie back in 2015 but has battled injuries his entire career. With John Simon out with a stinger, former 1st Rounder Barkevious Mingo started in his place and played 43 snaps. Mingo contributed 2 solos, 3 assists and 1 QB hit.

 

Nick Vigil, Vontaze Burfict and Shawn Williams played 74 snaps. I may have pronounced Adam Jones dead too soon. Jones played 44 snaps, 3rd among CBs. Dre Kirkpatrick (62 snaps) and Darqueze Dennard (54 snaps) played ahead of him while William Jackson III (41 snaps) was right behind him. Jones is returning from a back injury. If he’s available in your league, I wouldn’t pick him up quite yet. Cincy plays Jacksonville next week. Keep an eye on his snap count next week and that should give you an idea of his usefulness going forward. Bengals’ Safeties are usually an unproductive position. It’s getting worse. George Iloka split snaps with Josh Shaw this week. Iloka was on the field for 42 snaps while Shaw played 32 snaps. Shaw’s been getting pretty consistent snaps but never at Iloka’s expense. I couldn’t find any news on an Iloka injury. Michael Johnson played 24 snaps before leaving with a back injury. Another back injury, it’s almost like having a defense loaded with 30+ year old guys isn’t the best idea… My back is sore just leaning over my laptop. Johnson has been playing a lot of DT this year, not just playing DE. In his absence Chris Smith (34 snaps) played more than Jordan Willis (20 snaps). Smith ended with 2 solos, 1 assist and 2 QB hits. If Johnson misses some time, we may have to do the Smith/Willis waltz again. When Johnson was hurt in Week 1 and missed Week 2, Smith outsnapped Willis in Week 1 but Willis outsnapped Smith in Week 2. On the season, Smith has played 174 snaps to Willis’ 170 snaps.

 

LAC at NE

Jahleel Addae played 86 snaps. 86. Tre Boston, Casey Hayward and Trevor Williams all played 85 snaps. Next on the list are Melvin Ingram (78 snaps) and Joey Bosa (72 snaps). That’s more than most DEs play in two games combined. Bosa set the record for most sacks in the first 20 games of a career, surpassing Aldon Smith. Good new/bad news situation here. The bad new is I didn’t identify Adrian Phillips’ new role early enough to put it in last week’s snap count thread. The good news is I realized it on Saturday and picked him up and started him against the Pats and enjoyed his 12 solos, 1 TFL and 1 PD on 59 snaps. I know you guys all appreciate my team’s success. Maybe I need to start doing a quick Saturday notes post… With Jatavis Brown still banged up and Denzel Perryman still out, the 4th year UDFA Safety started playing OLB three weeks ago to increase team speed. In Week 5, Phillips played 53 snaps, after playing 36 snaps in Weeks 1-4. In Week 6, Phillips was on the field for 7 snaps before leaving with a concussion. In Week 7, Phillips played 46 snaps. The Chargers are on bye next week so Brown and Perryman may be able to get healthy, possibly taking away Phillips’ opportunity. I may try to offload Phillips onto someone who is Safety needy and isn’t fully aware of his situation. The odds of the Chargers playing 86 defensive snaps in a game again this year are pretty low. Hayes Pullard played the most snaps at LB with 66, more than any two other LBs combined. Pullard ended second on the team in solos with 10, 2 assists and 1 TFL. Williams, still starting for the IRed Jason Verrett had a great game, 8 solos and 1 PD. Desmond King played 58 snaps and had 4 solos and 1 sack. You can do worse if you’re desperate at CB.

 

Kyle Van Noy, Devin McCourty, Malcolm Butler and Johnson Bademosi played 56 snaps. Patrick Chung played 51 snaps while Duron Harmon played 50 snaps. Van Noy had the top stat line on the team with 6 solos, 1 TFL and 1 PD. Six solos led the team. With Dont’a Hightower on IR, Elandon Roberts played 40 snaps and put together 5 solos, 1 assist and 1 TFL. Deatrich Wise has started losing some of the hype lately. Wise only played 34 snaps, good for second among DEs but only 2 more snaps than Lawrence Guy and only 6 more snaps than Cassius Marsh, both of whom outproduced him. Guy had 1 solo and 4 assists. Marsh had 2 solos and 1 TFL. Wise ended with 1 assist.

 

ATL at NYJ

Deion Jones, De’Vondre Campbell, Keanu Neal, Ricardo Allen and Robert Alford played 61 snaps. This is the second week in a row Campbell played 100% of the snaps. His stat line wasn’t amazing with 2 solos, 2 assists and 1 TFL but he’ll produce given the opportunity. Jones led the way in tackles with 9 solos, 2 assists and 1 TFL. After Neal’s 8 solos and 1 assist, the third leading tackler was Grady Jarrett, with 4 solos, 3 assists, 0.5 sack and 2 TFLs. He also picked off a spike when Josh McCown was trying to stop the clock. The play was nullified because the Jets weren’t lined up prior to the snap, but pretty amazing for a DT to dive in and intercept a spike. Jarrett did all that on 47 snaps. Dontari Poe also played 47 snaps but only produced 2 solos, 2 assists and 0.5 sack. Brooks Reed’s snaps dropped quite a bit. He played 18 snaps, his lowest of the season. I couldn’t find any news on an injury. Takk McKinley still only played 25 snaps. He’s warming up though with 2 solos, both for a loss, 1 sack and another QB hit. Kemal Ishmael played in Duke Riley’s spot. Ishmael played 4 defensive snaps.

 

Demario Davis, Darron Lee, Marcus Maye and Jamal Adams played 66 snaps. Leonard Williams and Darryl Roberts both played over 90% of snaps. Mo Wilkerson played 54 snaps. Wilkerson ended with 5 solos, 1 sack and a second TFL. There isn’t much to say here. David Bass didn’t play any defensive snaps. He was fun for a few minutes. He’s droppable now. Jordan Jenkins led the way at OLB with 46 snaps. Jenkins had 1 solo, matching the output of OLB Josh Martin, who was on the field for 32 snaps. Kony Ealy played 39 snaps. The Jets traded for 49er CB Rashard Robinson.

 

SF at PHI

Jaquiski Tartt and Brock Coyle both played 70 snaps. Third Round rookie Akhello Witherspoon played 69 snaps. Rashard Robinson only played 16 snaps. Update: San Fran traded Robinson to the Jets so apparently Witherspoon passed his audition. Witherspoon produced in his first full game with 3 solos and an interception. Dontae Johnson still played 53 snaps and finished with 2 solos and 1 PD. Jimmie Ward broke his forearm after 15 snaps and went on IR. Eric Reid didn’t come in and replace Ward. Seventh Round rookie Adrian Colbert came in and played 55 snaps. Colbert ended with 2 solos. Reid played 27 of his 33 snaps today at LB. He put together 3 solos and 1 QB hit. He was outpaced by Ray Ray Armstrong who had 4 solos on 36 snaps. The question becomes, how will San Fran replace Ward, Reid or Colbert? Solomon Thomas left with a knee injury. He played 32 snaps. With Arik Armstead already on IR, this will be significant. After joining San Fran two weeks ago, Leger Douzable played the most snaps at DE with 57. He amassed 2 sacks among 5 solos. His 81% snap rate could even go up a little more with Thomas expected to be out a few weeks. The next DE end on the list was former Packer Datone Jones, who was signed one week ago. Jones played 28 snaps and had 1 solos and 1 assist, both for a loss. Jones is a DT in MFL. If you’ve got an open roster spot in a DT-premium/required league, he may be worth a pickup to see if he starts to produce. His snaps were at DE because DeForest Buckner played 55 snaps and DT Earl Mitchell played 51 snaps.

 

Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod and Nigel Bradham all played 66 snaps. Jalen Mills was the only other Eagle north of 90% of snaps. With Jordan Hicks on IR, Mychal Kendricks played 52 snaps. As is usually the case, when Kendricks gets his opportunities, he produces. Kendricks led the team in tackles with 6 solos, 1 assist, 1 sack, 1 PD and a 2nd QB hit. Philly’s DEs are going to be frustrating until this 4-person committee gets narrowed down. In order, they played Bruce Graham (44 snaps), Derek Barnett (34 snaps), Chris Long (33 snaps) and Vinny Curry (32 snaps). Curry had the best game though as he had 5 solos, 1 sack, 2 TFLs and 2 more QB hits. Patrick Robinson played 18 snaps before entering into the concussion protocol. Rasul Douglas didn’t see a big jump in snaps through. Douglas played 30 snaps, 2 more than he played in Week 7. 2014 3rd Rounder Dexter McDougle came in and played 32 snaps after playing 13 snaps combined over the last six weeks. McDougle only ended with 1 solo however. Ronald Darby was questionable for this game so watch his practice reports. He could play next week, or they could hold him out one more week since they have their bye week in Week 10. The #2 DT has devolved into a committee. Fletcher Cox played 45 snaps. Both Beau Allen and Timmy Jernigan played 29 snaps while Destiny Vaeao played 17 snaps.

 

CAR at TB

Luke Kuechly, Thomas Davis, Mike Adams, Kurt Coleman and James Bradberry played 67 snaps. Coleman and Kuechly both returned from injury and played 100% of snaps. Daryl Worley played 53 snaps. They also led the Panthers in tackles. Coleman had 7 solos and 2 assists. Keuchly had 6 solos, 2 assists, 1.5 TFL and a PD. The interesting snap count here is Shaq Thompson’s. In Weeks 1-2, Davis outsnapped Thompson. In Weeks 3-5, Thompson outsnapped Davis, convincingly so at times. This was when Davis was dealing with broken ribs. In Weeks 6-7, they both played basically 100% of snaps, while Kuechly was dealing with a concussion and absent. Against Tampa, with all three healthy, Thompson’s snaps dropped to 36, just over half as many as Davis.

 

Kwon Alexander, Lavonte David and Justin Evans played 65 snaps. Evans only ended with 1 solo and 1 PD. He is a FS after all, but playing all the snaps, he should produce more than this most weeks. Brent Grimes and Robert McClain both missed this game, allowing Vernon Hargreaves III and Ryan Smith to play 63 snaps apiece. Javien Elliott dressed for the first time and played 37 snaps as the nickel CB. If Grimes and McClain miss again, Smith looks like a decent play. He ended with 6 solos and 2 PDs. Kendall Beckwith’s snaps dropped even further, down to 34. He ended with 1 solo and 1 assist. Chris Conte (38 snaps) and TJ Ward (27 snaps) continue to split time opposite Evans. With Noah Spence on IR, Robert Ayers played 51 snaps, Ryan Russell (back from a dislocated shoulder) played 35 snaps and William Gholston played 29 snaps. I think Jacquies Smith is available again. You have to imagine if he has anything left, the Bucs would sign him. Otherwise, they’re hoping 43-year old Simeon Rice is serious about his potential comeback a decade after retiring.

 

PIT at DET

Ryan Shazier played 71 snaps. Bud Dupree, TJ Watt, Sean Davis, Artie Burns and Joe Haden played over 90% of snaps. Burns actually led the team in tackles with 8 solos, 1 assist, 1 TFL and a PD. Vince Williams played 54 snaps and ended 2nd in total tackles with 4 solos and 4 assists. Mike Mitchell strained his calf after playing 38 snaps. Interestingly, JJ Wilcox still only played 1 defensive snap, for the 3rd week in a row. Robert Golden came in to replace Mitchell and played 33 snaps. Mitchell isn’t expected to miss any time. Stephon Tuitt didn’t play in this game due to a back injury. As with the other three games Tuitt has missed on the season, Tyson Alualu played in his place. Alualu had 2 solos, 1 assist, 1 sack and 1 PD on 53 snaps.

 

Jarrad Davis, Glover Quin and Tavon Wilson played 64 snaps. Darius Slay took 1 snap off. Wilson was the only Lion over 5 total tackles. He had 7 solos and 4 assists. Jalen Reeves-Maybin played 22 snaps, behind Davis and Tahir Whitehead (47 snaps) and only slightly ahead of the former 49er Nick Bellore (15 snaps). JRM did end with 4 solos, 1 assist and 1 TFL. A potentially concerning number is 17. That’s how many snaps Miles Killebrew played. It’s his lowest total on the season, coming off the bye. Outside of Slay, CB is a bit of a mess. Quandre Diggs played the second most snaps with 42 at the slot. Nevin Lawson (27 snaps) and DJ Hayden (23 snaps) split time as the other outside CB. Lawson ended with 5 solos which creates a concern for his coverage abilities. Last year, Lawson was a solid cover CB who wasn’t a ballhawk. Obviously, no one can cover Antonio Brown, but it is something to watch. 2nd Round Rookie Teez Tabor was a healthy scratch for the 5th game this season. At some point, they need to see what they have there.

 

DEN at KC

Brandon Marshall and Justin Simmons played 62 snaps. Darian Stewart played 61 snaps. Aquib Talib played 59 snaps. Marshall had 7 solos and 1 assist. He was the only Bronco over 5 total tackles. Shane Ray returned from IR. Ray played 51 snaps compared to Von Miller’s 53 snaps. Shaq Barrett dropped down to 24 snaps as a backup. Of the three, Barrett got the sack, but his production will surely drop with the decreased snaps. Todd Davis missed this game with an ankle injury. Zaire Anderson came in and played 27 snaps. Anderson ended with 1 solo and 2 assists. Will Parks played his most snaps since Week 2. Weeks 3-7, Parks hadn’t topped 32 snaps. Against KC, he played 44 snaps. He ended with 2 solos.

 

Derrick Johnson, Ron Parker, Daniel Sorensen, Marcus Peters and Kenneth Acker played all 73 snaps. The two safeties led the way with tackles. Parker had 7 solos and a pick. Sorensen had 5 solos and 2 assists. Terrence MItchell was demoted which is too bad because I think he was the highest scoring CB going into Week 7. Acker took his place. Acker was traded from San Fran in August after he lost his starting job to Dontae Johnson. Acker ended with 5 solos, 1 assist and an interception. Honestly, I think I intercepted a Siemian pass Monday night… Acker is definitely worth a pickup in most CB premium/required leagues. QBs don’t want to throw it at Peters and KC will force teams to throw. Nickel CB Phillip Gaines was also demoted. Steven Nelson was activated off IR and came into play 53 snaps in the slot. Nelson had 2 solos, 2 assists and a PD. Reggie Ragland played 20 snaps and ended with 2 solos and 2 assists. Justin Houston had 2 sacks to go with 5 total solos and 1 assist in 63 snaps. Allen Bailey played 55 snaps at DE. Chris Jones saw his snaps drop though. His 36 snaps are tied for his second lowest snap total on the season. Jarvis Jenkins had played 26 snaps spread over 3 games prior to Monday Night. On Monday night, Jenkins added 20 snaps to his total. 2nd Round Rookie Tanoh Kpassagnon had played 4 snaps over the previous 7 games. Kpassagnon played 10 snaps on Monday night. None of the three put up a huge stat line. Dee Ford hurt his back in this game and only played 28 snaps. Frank Zombo played 45 snaps in his place. Zombo didn’t have a stat.

 

Did I do it right @Hankmoody?

Farley leads the team in snaps and doesn’t acquire a single stat?  wth?

Yeah, that little factoid literally cost me a win. If he had gotten even just 3 solos and an assist or 2 solos and 3 assist, I would've won. But no. He and Jarrad Davis killed me.

Huh?  He's 5'11" and 220.  He's a run-and-hitter, he's not a pass rusher.  I don't watch the Chargers but I don't think he's lining up at Mike, I think that's Pullard.  Brown is a pure Will.  His problem is that he's not healthy, nothing more.  Dude was a missile before the ankle injury.

Yep, legit concern he's not a full time guy barring injury to others going forward, but that's who he is.  I wouldn't get teased too much about the full participant stuff.  Lots of guys are full's while still battling an injury.  If his usage remains the same post bye then I think it's time to question things, but I suspect it'll increase - just not sure how much.  I moved on in two of my three leagues, but it's because I worked good offers - not to try and get out from a sinking ship.
