Badgers in the NFL: Week 11

Jonathan Taylor has his best rushing performance since Week 2 and Andrew Van Ginkel continues to make plays for the Dolphins.

Veterans

  • Russell Wilson, QB (Seahawks): Wilson had an eye-opening 82% completion percentage and threw for two touchdowns in Seattle’s Thursday night win over the Cardinals. The nine year veteran also ran for 42 yards in the win.
  • James White, RB (Patriots): The former Super Bowl hero was targeted nine times and finished with six catches for 64 yards in Week 11. White also added 19 rushing yards on five carries.
  • Melvin Gordon, RB (Broncos): Gordon rushed for 84 yards on 15 carries, good for a season-high 5.6 yards per carry, and two touchdowns in the Broncos’ win over the Dolphins. The six year veteran is still having issues putting the ball on the ground though and fumbled once on Sunday.
  • Corey Clement, RB (Eagles): Clement was placed on the Reserve/COVID list last week and was forced to miss Sunday’s game against the Browns.
  • Dare Ogunbowale, RB (Jaguars): The former walk-on played a season-high 13 snaps at running back and was targeted twice, but finished with no catches. Ogunbowale was also on the field for 62% of special teams snaps.
  • Derek Watt, FB (Steelers): Watt logged eleven snaps at fullback and played 69% of special teams in Week 11.
  • Alec Ingold, FB (Raiders): Ingold played 34% of offensive snaps and finished with one catch for 11 yards in the Raiders’ loss to the Chiefs.
  • Ryan Ramczyk, OT (Saints): The former All-Pro started at right tackle and played every offensive snap in the Saints’ win over the Falcons.
  • Rick Wagner, OT (Packers): Wagner played just five special teams snaps in Green Bay’s loss to the Colts.
  • Rob Havenstein, OT (Rams): The six year veteran started at right tackle and played all 72 offensive snaps in the Rams’ Monday night win.
  • Kevin Zeitler, OG (Giants): The Giants had a bye in Week 11.
  • David Edwards, OG (Rams): Edwards started at left guard and played every offensive snap in Week 11.
  • Michael Deiter, C (Dolphins): Deiter logged only three special teams snaps in the Dolphins’ loss to the Broncos.
  • Troy Fumagalli, TE (Broncos): Fumagalli played 31% of offensive snaps and was targeted once, but had no catches in the Broncos’ Week 11 win.
  • Alex Erickson, WR (Bengals): The former walk-on played five offensive snaps on Sunday, finishing with one catch for eight receiving yards and one carry for two rushing yards. He also logged five snaps on specials and returned two punts for 19 total yards.
  • J.J. Watt, DE (Texans): The 3x Defensive Player of the Year tallied two tackles, a tackle for loss, and four passes defended in the Texans’ win over the Patriots.
  • Joe Schobert, LB (Jaguars): Schobert was on the field for every defensive snap in Week 11 and had a season-high 13 tackles for the Jaguars.
  • T.J. Watt, LB (Steelers): Watt had a relatively quite game by his standards in the Steelers’ win over the Jaguars and finished with just two tackles and two quarterback hits.
  • T.J. Edwards, LB (Eagles): Edwards started at inside linebacker and played 70% of defensive snaps in Week 11. The second year pro notched five tackles and a tackle for loss in the Eagles’ loss to the Browns.
  • Ryan Connelly, LB (Vikings): Connelly logged 13 snaps on special teams and recorded one tackle in the Vikings’ loss to the Cowboys.
  • Andrew Van Ginkel, LB (Dolphins): Van Ginkel has turned into a major contributor on Miami’s defense this season. The second year outside linebacker played 69% of defensive snaps and tallied two tackles, one quarterback hit, and a forced fumble that prevented a touchdown in Week 11.
  • Natrell Jamerson, DB (Panthers): Jamerson was activated from the practice squad last week and played eight total snaps (1 defensive, 7 special teams) on Sunday.

Rookies

  • Jonathan Taylor, RB (Colts): Taylor had a bounce back game on Sunday, rushing for 90 yards (his highest total since Week 2) on 22 carries and catching four passes for 24 receiving yards. After rushing for 27 yards or less in his past three games, this was a much-needed performance from the former two-time Doak Walker award winner.
  • Quintez Cephus, WR (Lions): Cephus played 30% of offensive snaps and finished with one catch for nine yards in Week 11.
  • Tyler Biadasz, C (Cowboys): Biadasz was placed on injured reserve last week due to hamstring injury and did not play in Sunday’s game versus the Vikings. He will have to miss at least three games until he is eligible to return.
  • Zack Baun, LB (Saints): Baun saw only three snaps on defense, but logged 18 special teams snaps in the Saints’ win over the Falcons.
  • Chris Orr, LB (Panthers): A week after making his NFL debut as a replacement player, Orr was once again promoted to Carolina’s active roster for Week 11. The undrafted rookie played 14 total snaps (1 defensive, 13 special teams) and recorded no tackles in the Panthers’ win over the Lions.
