Veterans

  • Russell Wilson, QB (Seahawks): The Seahawks had a bye in Week 6.
  • James White, RB (Patriots): White had his best performance of the season on Sunday, despite the Patriots’ struggles on offense. The former Super Bowl hero finished with a season-high eight catches for 65 yards and tacked on eight rushing yards on four attempts.
  • Corey Clement, RB (Eagles): Clement played seven offensive snaps and 23 special teams snaps in Week 6. Eagles’ starting running back Miles Sanders injured his knee on Sunday and is expected to miss 1-2 games. Clement will certainly see an uptick in snaps in the games Sanders is forced to miss.
  • Melvin Gordon, RB (Broncos): Gordon had a newsworthy past week, getting arrested for a DUI last Tuesday and then coming down with strep throat later in the week. He was inactive in Week 6 and could face a suspension from the league.
  • Dare Ogunbowale, RB (Jaguars): Ogunbowale played 54% of special teams snaps and recorded no tackles in the Jaguars’ loss to the Lions.
  • Derek Watt, FB (Steelers): After missing Week 5 with a hamstring injury, Watt was active for the Steelers on Sunday. He logged four snaps at fullback and played 44% of special teams snaps.
  • Alec Ingold, FB (Raiders): The Raiders had a bye in Week 6.
  • Ryan Ramczyk, OT (Saints): The Saints had a bye in Week 6.
  • Rick Wagner, OT (Packers): After starting left tackle David Bakhtiari left Sunday’s game with a chest injury, Wagner was called upon as the replacement. The eight year veteran played 23 offensive snaps at left tackle in relief and is in line to start in Week 7 if Bakhtiari is forced to miss any time.
  • Rob Havenstein, OT (Rams): Havenstein started at right tackle and played every offensive snap in Week 6.
  • Kevin Zeitler, OG (Giants): Zeitler started at right guard and played 100% of the offensive snaps in the Giants’ win over Washington. Through six weeks, the nine year veteran hasn’t missed a snap on offense.
  • David Edwards, OG (Rams): For the fourth straight week, Edwards started at left guard and played every offensive snap for the Rams.
  • Ryan Groy, OG (Chargers): The Chargers had a bye in Week 6.
  • Michael Deiter, C (Dolphins): Deiter logged just four special teams snaps in the Dolphins’ win over the Jets.
  • Alex Erickson, WR (Bengals): The former walk-on played four special teams snaps and finished with two punt returns for 12 yards. Erickson also saw three snaps at wide receiver and was targeted once, but had no catches.
  • J.J. Watt, DE (Texans): Watt had his best game of the season in Week 6, finishing with four tackles, one pass defended, and a strip sack. The ten year veteran did all he could to help the Texans win, but they fell to 1-5 on the season after losing to the Titans in overtime.
  • Joe Schobert, LB (Jaguars): Schobert recorded ten total tackles, a quarterback hit, and an interception in the Jaguars’ Week 6 loss.
  • T.J. Watt, LB (Steelers): Watt had a relatively quiet game in Week 6. The two-time Pro Bowler notched three total tackles and one tackle for loss in the Steelers’ win over the Browns.
  • Ryan Connelly, LB (Vikings): The former walk-on played 39% of special teams snaps and recorded no tackles for the Vikings in Week 6.
  • Andrew Van Ginkel, LB (Dolphins): Van Ginkel started at outside linebacker and played 17 defensive snaps before leaving the game in the first half due to a concussion. He had recorded two tackles prior to exiting.

Rookies

  • Jonathan Taylor, RB (Colts): Taylor rushed for 60 yards on 12 carries and added 4 catches for 55 receiving yards on Sunday. His 5.0 yards per carry was high highest average of the season, and a negative game script (Colts fell behind 21-0) was the only thing that held him back from a breakout game.
  • Quintez Cephus, WR (Lions): Cephus saw only six snaps at wide receiver and wasn’t targeted in the Lions’ win over the Jaguars. He also logged six special teams snaps.
  • Tyler Biadasz, C (Cowboys): For the second straight week, Biadasz started at center for the Cowboys.
  • Zack Baun, LB (Saints): The Saints had a bye in Week 6.
