Badgers in the NFL: Week 10

New, comments

T.J. Watt continues his push for DPOY, Andrew Van Ginkel blocks a punt and Jonathan Taylor is falling out of favor in Indy.

Veterans

  • Russell Wilson, QB (Seahawks): Wilson has certainly seen better days than his performance against the Rams this past weekend. The nine year veteran had his worst completion percentage of the season (59%) and committed three turnovers (two INTs, one fumble) in Seattle’s loss.
  • James White, RB (Patriots): White played a season-low 17% of offensive snaps and finished Sunday night’s game with two catches for just eight yards.
  • Melvin Gordon, RB (Broncos): Gordon had a fairly uneventful performance in Week 10, rushing for 46 yards on 11 carries and catching no passes.
  • Corey Clement, RB (Eagles): The four year veteran logged just one snap at running back on Sunday, but he made it count. Clement scored a one-yard touchdown on his only offensive snap of the day, while also playing 64% of special teams snaps.
  • Dare Ogunbowale, RB (Jaguars): Ogunbowale played a season-high 16% of offensive snaps and caught one pass for five yards in Jacksonville’s loss to the Packers. The former walk-on also logged 22 special teams snaps and recorded two tackles.
  • Derek Watt, FB (Steelers): Watt returned from a hamstring injury that kept him out last week and played six snaps at fullback for the Steelers. He also was on the field for 69% of special teams snaps and recorded one tackle.
  • Alec Ingold, FB (Raiders): After suffering two fractured ribs last week, Ingold gutted it out and logged 12 offensive snaps and seven special teams in the Raiders’ win over the Broncos.
  • Ryan Ramczyk, OT (Saints): Ramczyk started at right tackle and played every offensive snap in the Saints’ win over the 49ers.
  • Rick Wagner, OT (Packers): With the Packers’ starting offensive linemen finally healthy, Wagner was back on the bench in Week 10. The eight year veteran saw just four special teams snaps in Green Bay’s win over the Jaguars.
  • Rob Havenstein, OT (Rams): Havenstein started at right tackle and played 100% of offensive snaps in the Rams’ win over the Seahawks. Through six weeks, the nine year veteran has yet to miss a single snap on offense.
  • Kevin Zeitler, OG (Giants): Zeitler started at right guard and logged 59 offensive snaps before exiting Sunday’s game against the Eagles with a concussion. The Giants have a bye in Week 11, so there is a good chance Zeitler misses no games.
  • David Edwards, OG (Rams): Edwards started his seventh straight game at left guard and played 69 offensive snaps in Week 10.
  • Michael Deiter, C (Dolphins): The Dolphins’ backup center logged just seven special teams snaps on Sunday.
  • Troy Fumagalli, TE (Broncos): Fumagalli was activated to the Broncos’ active roster and played 12 snaps at tight end in Week 10. The third year pro was targeted three times and hauled in two catches for 12 yards.
  • Alex Erickson, WR (Bengals): The former walk-on saw no playing time at wide receiver, but returned two punts for 13 yards and fumbled once in the Bengals’ loss to the Steelers.
  • J.J. Watt, DE (Texans): Watt tallied five total tackles and one tackle for loss in Houston’s loss to the Browns.
  • Joe Schobert, LB (Jaguars): Schobert played 97% of defensive snaps at inside linebacker and tallied nine total tackles in the Jags’ Week 10 loss.
  • T.J. Watt, LB (Steelers): Watt was all over the field on Sunday, finishing with four total tackles, two sacks and four quarterback hits. Through ten weeks, Watt leads the league in tackles for loss (16) and ranks second in sacks (nine).
  • T.J. Edwards, LB (Eagles): Edwards notched twelve total tackles and played 75% of defensive snaps in the Eagles’ loss to the Giants.
  • Ryan Connelly, LB (Vikings): Connelly was a healthy inactive for the Vikings’ Monday night game against the Bears.
  • Andrew Van Ginkel, LB (Dolphins): Van Ginkel just continues to make plays for the Dolphins. This past Sunday, the former fifth round pick had five total tackles, one quarterback hit, and a blocked punt on special teams.

Rookies

  • Jonathan Taylor, RB (Colts): Taylor played a season-low 24% of offensive snaps and rushed for just 12 yards on 7 carries in the Colts’ win over the Titans. The former second round pick is in a full-on running back by committee situation with Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins. On the bright side, Taylor did have an awesome truck stick on Thursday night.
  • Quintez Cephus, WR (Lions): With Kenny Golladay out for the second straight week, Cephus saw significant playing time at wide receiver (51% of snaps). The former fifth round pick was targeted twice and finished with one catch for ten yards.
  • Tyler Biadasz, C (Cowboys): The Cowboys had a bye in Week 10.
  • Zack Baun, LB (Saints): Baun saw only one snap on defense, but logged 16 special teams snaps and recorded one tackle in the Saints’ win over the 49ers.
