Badgers in the NFL: Week 10

Derek Watt and Alec Ingold battle for fullback supremacy and TJ Watt is on fire.

AP
  • Russell Wilson, QB (Seahawks): In one of the best games of the NFL season, Wilson led the Seahawks to an overtime win over the undefeated 49ers on Monday night. The former Super Bowl champion didn’t have his best game, throwing a bad pick in the red zone in overtime, but after Seattle got the ball back Wilson converted a crucial third down with an 18-yard scramble to set up the game-winning field goal. Russ has had an incredible 2019 season and is firmly in the MVP race with seven weeks to play.
  • James White, RB (Patriots): The Patriots had a bye in Week 10.
  • Melvin Gordon, RB (Chargers): Gordon had his first 100-yard game of season, rushing for 108 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers’ loss last Thursday night. The former Pro Bowler looks like he’s finally back in form after a slow start to the season coming off his four week holdout.
  • Dare Ogunbowale, RB (Buccaneers): Ogunbowale once again worked as the third down back for the Bucs, playing 22 offensive snaps and finishing with three catches for 24 yards. He also continued to have a role on special teams and played 62% of such snaps.
  • Derek Watt, FB (Chargers): In a Thursday night battle between Wisconsin fullbacks (Watt and Ingold), Watt played just three offensive snaps but converted a fourth and one attempt on his only carry of the game. He continues to be a mainstay on the Chargers’ special teams units and leads the league in special teams tackles through ten weeks.
  • Ryan Ramczyk, OT (Saints): Ramczyk continues to shine at right tackle for the Saints this season and allowed no pressures in Week 10.
  • Travis Frederick, C (Cowboys): Frederick once again started at center for the Cowboys and played all 71 offensive snaps.
  • Ryan Groy, C (Chargers): The six year veteran played one offensive snap and six special teams snap in Week 10.
  • Lance Kendricks, TE (Chargers): Kendricks played just six offensive snaps at tight end and was targeted once.
  • Troy Fumagalli, TE (Broncos): The Broncos had a bye in Week 10.
  • Alex Erickson, WR (Bengals): Coming off two straight productive games, Erickson was limited with a back injury in Week 10. He played just 51% of offensive snaps and finished with no catches on two targets.
  • Beau Allen, DT (Buccaneers): Allen once again backed up starter Vita Vea at nose tackle and played 14 defensive snaps.
  • Joe Schobert, LB (Browns): Schobert played every defensive snap at inside linebacker and finished with five tackles in Cleveland’s season-saving win over the Bills. The four year veteran is tied for sixth in the league in total tackles, despite playing only nine games.
  • T.J. Watt, LB (Steelers): Watt has been an absolute monster this year and tallied five tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble in Pittsburgh’s win over the Rams. The third year pro leads the league in quarterback hits with 22 and ranks fifth in sacks with 9.5. Watt, coupled with fellow pass rusher Bud Dupree and star defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick, have led a stellar defensive unit that has saved the Steelers season.
  • Vince Biegel, LB (Dolphins): Biegel has had a great year for the Dolphins and finished with five tackles and one quarterback hit in Week 10. Playing for his third team in as many years, it’s been awesome to see Biegel settle in with the Dolphins and take full advantage of his increased role in Miami’s defense.

Rookies

  • Michael Deiter, OG (Dolphins): Deiter is one of only two Dolphins players to have started all nine games this season, as the third round pick played every snap at left guard in Week 10.
  • Alec Ingold, FB (Raiders): Ingold scored his first career touchdown last Thursday on a nine-yard pass from Derek Carr just before halftime. The undrafted rookie has been a revelation for the Raiders and is in contention to make the Pro Bowl with the way he’s been playing this season.
  • David Edwards, OG (Rams): Edwards started at right guard and played 100% of the offensive snaps for the Rams. After playing tackle in college, the rookie has fit in nicely at guard after a rash of injuries to the Rams’ offensive line.
  • T.J. Edwards, LB (Eagles): The Eagles had a bye in Week 10.
  • Andrew Van Ginkel, LB (Dolphins): Van Ginkel is returning from his injury!
