Davante Adams drop two more passes in Week 16. By my count he’s dropped three touchdown passes the last two weeks. #Dreadful
Jay Ajayi ran for 206 yards, the third time he has run for 200-yards this season. He is the fourth player in league history to have pulled off that feat: Earl Campbell (four times in 1980), O.J Simpson (1973) and Tiki Barber (2005). Ajayi ran for 420 yards against the Bill this season, the fourth most in history against one club in a season (the record is 500 by Jamaal Lewis versus the Browns in 2003). #TakeThatHistory
Robby Anderson caught six balls for 99 yards in Week 14. In Week 15 he caught four balls for 80 yards and a score. In Week 16 he saw three targets and caught none. #IfILoseCauseOfYou...
Doug Baldwin caught 11 passes in Weeks’ 14 and 15. He caught 13 in Week 16. From Weeks 12-15, a span of four games, Baldwin caught 180 yards of passes. He went off for 171 yards in Week 16. Though he’s scored in 2-straight, he has just two touchdowns in six games.
Blake Bortles against the Titans this season: 662 passing yards, four scores, no picks.
Drew Brees is 142 yards away from 5,000. #JustSayingToTheHaters
The Chiefs are 21-4 since Week 7 last year, the best record in the NFL. #AlexSmithIsBetterThanYouThink
Charles Clay had his best game of the year catching eight passes for 85 yards and two scores. That’s three straight games with 50-yards and a touchdown. Heading into Week 14 he had one game of 50-yards all season and no scores.
Brandin Cooks has a 75-1,154-8 line. #AreYouReallyDisappointed
Jamison Crowder had his biggest bomb of the year in Week 16 as he caught one pass for three yards. I warned over and over, and folks kept arguing. Take this to heart. In the fantasy playoffs, Weeks 14-16, Crowder caught seven passes for 54 yards and no scores. Yes, that was his production in three games. #TriedToWarnYou
That Denver offense is screwed up. Devonta Booker saw 10 targets in Week 16 to lead the team. He caught six for 44 yards.
Stefon Diggs used to be a thing. Ill health or not, he has simply been disappointing for over a month now. He scored in Week 16 but he’s also failed to reach 60-yards five games in a row.
Oddly, as Carson Palmer’s play has improved Larry Fitzgerald’s production has dwindled. Fitz has caught just 14 passes for 100 yards the last three games. He hasn’t scored since Week 5. He still leads the league with 102 receptions. Meanwhile J.J. Nelson has scored in 4-straight outings even though he’s been under 45-yards in 6-of-7 outings.
Devonta Freeman has two scores or eight receptions in 4-of-5 games.
Taylor Gabriel vanished catching one pass for 15 yards. He saw a mere four targets and still hasn’t seen more than six all season long.
Mike Gillislee ran for 91 yards in Week 16, a career best. He’s scored or gone for 70 rushing yards in 6/7 games.
Jeremy Hill was on the field for 13 snaps last week. He carried the ball seven times for eight yards. He’s been under 45 yards in 4-of-5 games. #MassiveLetdown
Tyreek Hill produced 95 yards from scrimmage and a score. His owners are happy. However, for the second straight week he failed to catch a pass (he dropped two and one was picked off). A wideout who has failed to catch all eight of his targets over two weeks... that’s horrific. Still, the last two weeks he’s averaged 82 yards and a score as a runner despite a mere seven carries in total. #WhatIsGoingOn
T.Y. Hilton has gone for 100-yards in ¾ games. He has only one touchdown in five games. He leads the league with 1,353 receiving yards.
Jordan Howard broke a league leading seven tackles in Week 16. He ran for 119 yards and a score and has eclipsed 75 rushing yards in each of his last eight games. #NotBadRook
Seems like every Mark Ingram owner is ticked off. I’m not going to say things have gone smoothly this season, but the guy is 60-yards from a 1,000-yard season and his 5.1 YPC is more than a full yard better than the 3.9 mark of Melvin Gordon. By the way, in a PPR setup, Ingram is a top-10 running back. #WhatAreYouComplainingAbout
David Johnson produced another 136 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns. He and Barry Sanders are the only players in league annals to have produced 100-yards from scrimmage 15 times in a season. Johnson is also the fourth player to ever have 1,200 rushing yards and 800 receiving in the same season (1,233 and 841).
Travis Kelce went for and 11-160-1 line. He’s ripped off 100-yard efforts in 5-of-6. He’s also gone for 100-yards six times to tie the Chiefs single season record (last done by Tony Gonzalez in 2004).
Andrew Luck picked apart the Raiders when under pressure as he threw for 190 yards and a score while completing 14-of-15 passes. He’s up to 3,919 yards and 29 scores despite missing a game.
Marcus Mariota’s season is over but he threw for 26 touchdown passes, the most by a Titans/Oilers quarterback since 1990.
Doug Martin was an All-Pro last season with 1,402 rushing yards and 33 receptions. He was a healthy scratch in Week 16. He has one game all season with a YPC of 3.5 and his season best mark was 3.8 YPC in Week 12.
Jerick McKinnon has caught five passes in 4-straight outings. He’s averaged 6.3 receptions a game in that time.
Ty Montgomery carried the ball nine times for 23 yards and caught four balls for 17 yards. He didn’t force one missed tackle as he crashed back down to earth with a huge thud, just as I predicted.
Latavius Murray ran for 0.6 yards before contact in Week 16. Teammates DeAndre Washington’s number was 5.5. Murray carried the ball 15 times for 40 yards against the Colts while Washington rumbled away for 99 yards on 12 carries. #GreatTimeToSuckMurray
Jordy Nelson has scored 14 times, the third time he’s scored at least 13 times. He’s unable to get behind defenses and his yards per catch mark of 13.1 is his first season in five years below 15.2.
Greg Olsen caught six balls for 59 yards in Week 16 to push his season total to 1,051 yards. He is the first tight end in league history to have three consecutive seasons of 1,000 receiving yards. #HowAboutThat
Philip Rivers is dealing with a team without Allen, Gordon, Woodhead etc. He’s still thrown for 31 scores this season including at least two in each of the past eight outings. He’s also thrown 19 picks, including one each of the last six games. That’s the second worst interception mark of his 13 year NFL career (20 in 2011). He completed just 3-of-17 passes while under pressure in Week 16.
Allen Robinson caught nine balls for 147 yards in Week 16. #WhereHasThatBeenAllYear
Aaron Rodgers has 26 passing scores and three picks since Week 7.
Matt Ryan has set and NFL record by throwing a touchdown pass to 13 different players.
Rod Streater has caught a touchdown each of the last two games.
Tyrod Taylor has played 42 NFL games. Game #42 was the first time he had ever thrown for 300-yards as he threw for 329 yards and three scores. He also carried the ball 12 times for another 60 yards in a massive effort.
Adam Thielen was out of control in Week 16 catching 12-of-15 targets for 202 yards and two scores against the Packers. Those were his first two scores in five games but the game was also his third of 85-yards in four outings. That hard December push has him up to 960 yards which is four more than Michael Crabtree and five more than Julian Edelman. Speaking of the Pats wideout, Edelman has caught at least five balls for 73 yards each of the last seven games.
The last time Mike Wallace hit 65-yards was Week 9. He caught four balls for 21 yards in Week 16. He hasn’t scored in seven games.
