  • Russell Wilson, QB (Seahawks): It wasn’t pretty, but Wilson led the Seahawks to a road win over the Eagles in Week 12. The former Super Bowl champion threw for 200 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the win. Wilson along with Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson are the clear front runners for MVP as we head into the final five weeks of the season.
  • James White, RB (Patriots): White had his worst game of the season on Sunday, catching just one pass for negative six yards and rushing for five yards on two carries.
  • Melvin Gordon, RB (Chargers): The Chargers had a bye in Week 12.
  • Dare Ogunbowale, RB (Buccaneers): Ogunbowale played a season-low 14 snaps at running back for the Bucs. He had one carry for 12 yards and was targeted just once through the air.
  • Derek Watt, FB (Chargers): The Chargers had a bye in Week 12.
  • Ryan Ramczyk, OT (Saints): The third year right tackle started and played all 66 offensive snaps in the Saints’ win over the Panthers.
  • Rick Wagner, OT (Lions): After missing last week’s game with a concussion, Wagner returned in Week 12 and played every offensive snap at right tackle for the Lions.
  • Rob Havenstein, OT (Rams): Havenstein missed his second straight game with a knee injury in Week 12, but has a chance to return this coming Sunday.
  • Kevin Zeitler, OG (Giants): The eight year veteran once again started at right guard for the Giants.
  • Travis Frederick, C (Cowboys): Frederick started his eleventh straight game at center and played every offensive snap. He was called for a bogus tripping penalty that negated a first down on the Cowboys’ final drive in the fourth quarter.
  • Ryan Groy, C (Chargers): The Chargers had a bye in Week 12.
  • Troy Fumagalli, TE (Broncos): A week after scoring his first career touchdown, Fumagalli saw ten snaps at tight end and had no catches. The second year pro also played a season-high 54% of special teams snaps for the Broncos.
  • Lance Kendricks, TE (Chargers): The Chargers had a bye in Week 12.
  • Alex Erickson, WR (Bengals): Erickson was targeted eight times and finished with two catches for 43 yards in the Cincinnati’s loss to the Steelers.
  • Beau Allen, DT (Buccaneers): The six year veteran played 16 defensive snaps at nose tackle in Week 12.
  • Joe Schobert, LB (Browns): Schobert had two interceptions for the second straight game and tacked on five tackles, as he continued to make his case for the Pro Bowl. Through eleven weeks, the four year veteran ranks sixth in the league in tackles with 98.
  • T.J. Watt, LB (Steelers): The former Pro Bowler was at it again on Sunday. Watt finished with two tackles, a forced fumble, and a sack in the Steelers’ win over the Bengals. He now ranks second in the league with 11.5 sacks on the season.
  • Vince Biegel, LB (Dolphins): Biegel started his fifth straight game at outside linebacker and notched five tackles against the Browns.
  • Leon Jacobs, LB (Jaguars): Jacobs had a significant role in the Jaguars defense, playing 72% of defensive snaps in Week 12. The second year linebacker finished with four tackles in Jacksonville’s loss to the Titans.


  • Michael Deiter, OG (Dolphins): Deiter has started every game for the Dolphins this season and played every offensive snap on Sunday.
  • Alec Ingold, FB (Raiders): Ingold saw just nine snaps at fullback and had one carry for zero yards in Oakland’s upset loss to the Jets.
  • David Edwards, OG (Rams): The fifth round pick started at right guard and played every offensive snap for the Rams.
  • T.J. Edwards, LB (Eagles): Edwards played just two defensive snaps and had one tackle in Philly’s loss to the Seahawks. The undrafted linebacker also played 82% of special team snaps.
  • Andrew Van Ginkel, LB (Dolphins): Van Ginkel returned from injured reserve and played in his first career game on Sunday. The fifth round pick registered one tackle and saw seven snaps at linebacker and 13 snaps on special teams.
