Veterans

  • Russell Wilson, QB (Seahawks): It was just another day at the office for Wilson, who threw for 230 yards, one touchdown and competed 71% of passes in Seattle’s Monday night win over the Eagles. Through twelve weeks, Wilson ranks second in the league in completion percentage, third in passing yards, and second in touchdowns.

  • Melvin Gordon, RB (Broncos): With the Broncos playing without a quarterback due to coronavirus protocols, it was a dreadful day on offense for every Denver skill position player. Gordon rushed for just 31 yards on 12 carries in the Broncos’ blowout loss.
  • Corey Clement, RB (Eagles): The four year veteran logged just four snaps at running back and rushed for six yards on his lone carry. Clement also played 72% of special teams snaps in the Eagles’ Week 12 loss.
  • Dare Ogunbowale, RB (Jaguars): Ogunbowale was inactive for the Jaguars in Week 12 due to a hand injury.

Erickson also returned two punts for 44 total yards, including a 29-yard return late in the fourth quarter that put the Bengals nearly into field goal range.
  • J.J. Watt, DE (Texans): Watt had a monster performance in the Texans’ Thanksgiving day win, finishing with four tackles, one quarterback hit, and a pick six.
  • Joe Schobert, LB (Jaguars): The five year veteran played every defensive snap and finished with eight tackles and a forced fumble in the Jaguars’ loss to the Browns. Through twelve weeks, Schobert ranks ninth in the NFL in total tackles with 93.
  • T.J. Watt, LB (Steelers): Watt and the Steelers are scheduled to play the Ravens Wednesday night (aka tonight), after their game was postponed multiple times due to positive coronavirus cases among Ravens players and staff.

Rookies

  • Jonathan Taylor, RB (Colts): Taylor did not play in Week 12 after the Colts placed the rookie running back on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He did not test positive, rather he was a close contact with someone who tested positive and must test negative for five straight days to return to the field this upcoming weekend.
  • Quintez Cephus, WR (Lions): With Kenny Golladay still sidelined with an injury, Cephus once again saw playing time at wide receiver (30% of offensive snaps). The former fifth round pick finished with two catches for 27 yards in Detroit’s loss to the Texans.
