Badgers in the NFL: Week 6

Russell Wilson is an MVP candidate, Dare Ogunbowale scores his first career touchdown and Vince Biegel starts for the Dolphins.


  • Russell Wilson, QB (Seahawks): Wilson continued his red hot start to the 2019 season by throwing for 295 yards and scoring three total touchdowns (two passing, one rushing) in Seattle’s win over the Browns. The former Super Bowl champion has now thrown for 14 touchdowns and zero interceptions on the season and has led the Seahawks to a 5-1 record. I know it’s still early, but Wilson is squarely in the MVP conversation through six weeks.
  • James White, RB (Patriots): On Thursday night, White had a season high 9 receptions and finished with 46 receiving yards in the Patriots win over the Giants. The six year veteran has primarily been a safety valve for quarterback Tom Brady through six games and has scored only one touchdown in 2019 after scoring 12 a season ago.
  • Melvin Gordon, RB (Chargers): Gordon continues to work his way back from a four week absence and ran for only 18 yards on eight carries in Week 6. He also had three catches for 30 receiving yards. Gordon has averaged just 2.45 yards per carry in his first two games, but it’s only a matter of time until Gordon has his breakout performance of 2019.
  • Dare Ogunbowale, RB (Buccaneers): Ogunbowale ran in the end zone from three yards out to score his first career touchdown on Sunday. He added three catches for 22 receiving yards on five targets. Ogunbowale led all Bucs running backs in snaps with 46 and continues to be the primary passing downs back for a pass heavy team.
  • Corey Clement, RB (Eagles): Clement was placed on injured reserve on Friday due to a lingering shoulder injury he suffered in Week 2. The third year pro has had trouble staying healthy during his career, as he heads to the IR for the second straight season.
  • Derek Watt, FB (Chargers): With the Chargers playing from behind in their loss to the Steelers, Watt saw just six snaps at fullback. He continues to be a mainstay on the Chargers’ special teams units though, playing 81% of special teams snaps.
  • Ryan Ramczyk, OT (Saints): For the sixth straight week, Ramczyk started at right tackle for the Saints. He played all 66 offensive snaps in New Orleans’ win over the Jaguars.
  • Rob Havenstein, OT (Rams): Havenstein started at right tackle and played every offensive snap for the Rams in Week 6.
  • Rick Wagner, OT (Lions): Wagner once again started at right tackle for the Lions and played all 59 offensive snaps on Monday night.
  • Kevin Zeitler, OG (Giants): For the sixth straight week, Zeitler started at right guard and played 100% of offensive snaps for the Giants.
  • Travis Frederick, C (Cowboys): Frederick started his sixth straight game at center and played all 82 offensive snaps for the Cowboys.
  • Ryan Groy, C (Chargers): The six year veteran was signed by the Chargers last week, after starting center Mike Pouncey was placed on IR. Groy saw no playing time in Week 6.
  • Lance Kendricks, TE (Chargers): With starting tight end Hunter Henry returning from injury, Kendricks played just two offensive snaps on Sunday night against the Steelers.
  • Troy Fumagalli, TE (Broncos): For the third straight week, Fumagalli was a healthy inactive for the Broncos.
  • Alex Erickson, WR (Bengals): Erickson had his best game of the year on Sunday, finishing with four catches for 47 yards on six targets. He also tacked on 17 rushing yards on one carry and played 79% of offensive snaps, by far his highest total of the season.
  • J.J. Watt, DE (Texans): The three time Defensive Player of the Year had quiet game in Week 6. Watt finished with just two tackles and one quarterback hit in Houston’s upset win over the Chiefs.
  • Beau Allen, DT (Buccaneers): The backup nose tackle played 17 defensive snaps in the Bucs loss to the Panthers.
  • Joe Schobert, LB (Browns): Schobert notched eight tackles and one quarterback hit in the Browns home loss to the Seahawks. Through six weeks, the four year veteran is tied for the league lead in tackles with 62.
  • T.J. Watt, LB (Steelers): In a matchup against his brother Derek and the Chargers, T.J. finished with three tackles, four quarterback hits, and half of a sack.
  • Vince Biegel, LB (Dolphins): The third year pro started his first game of the season for the Dolphins on Sunday. Biegel had five tackles, two quarterback hits and three pressures in Miami’s loss to the Redskins.
  • Leon Jacobs, LB (Jaguars): Jacobs had his highest snap count of the season (29) in Week 6, and finished with three tackles, a tackle for loss, and one pass defended.
  • Natrell Jamerson, DB (Panthers): Jamerson was inactive for the Panthers due to a foot injury he suffered last week.


  • Michael Deiter, OG (Dolphins): Deiter started at left guard for the fifth straight game, but he struggled against the Redskins pass rush on Sunday.
  • Alec Ingold, FB (Raiders): The Raiders had a bye in Week 6.
  • David Edwards, OT (Rams): The fifth round pick played just one special teams snap in the Rams loss to the 49ers.
  • T.J. Edwards, LB (Eagles): Edwards notched 10 snaps at linebacker and finished with four tackles. The undrafted rookie is in line for an increased role in Philly’s defense, with the news of linebacker Zach Brown’s release on Monday.
