Here is a look at the offensive players from this weeks game, ordered by amount of snaps played.
Here is a look at the defensive players from this weeks game, ordered by amount of snaps played.
SPECIAL TEAMS – CURRENTLY
This week’s special teams players are listed below, sorted by the number of snaps they took. Here, we’ll only display players that participated in at least one special teams snap. Scroll to the bottom of the article to view the team total and the players who haven’t participated at all.
Since Moore and Flacco had such a great rapport, Moore has now started the season as the wide receiver snap leader. Moore will probably be Flacco’s favorite weapon while he is in there. They must continue to bolster the wide receiving group for the upcoming campaign. If Mike Evans becomes available via free agency, I would try to sign him, even if it means switching from Teller to a running back by committee.
When dealing with the injury to Cooper they used a mixture of wide receivers and tight ends, we saw an extra an extra 0.15 snaps per game for Bryant where as Njoku and Akins saw similar usage as usual.
Christian has passed Hudson on snaps across the season which is damning for Hudson’s future with the team as a tackle, if he doesn’t enter training camp battling for a guard spot then he is just injury cover or a camp body at tackle. Wills has now had four games on injured reserve which opens up the possibility to return.
For all the early talk of Myles being limited to third downs he actually played more snaps than he has on the season so far as a percentage. Okoronkwo outsnapped Smith yet again and it won’t be long before he is the teams second edge in terms of snaps. Smith only floating around 50% of snaps is likely to bring his value down as free agency approaches.
While we saw a similar numbers to Tomlinson and the 40% club there were some changes this week. More of a reliance on the two veterans where as Elliott and Hurst under their normal 40%.
After a rise last week, linebacker use has reverted to average.
This week, they must make a decision regarding linebackers because they cannot continue to play with seven guys in the long run when they need to add players like Mitchell and Flacco to the 53-man roster. First, let’s talk about the starting group. JOK has been playing a lot of snaps for the past two weeks, which is a good forecast because the other two-thirds of the snaps would have severely reduced his earnings. Of course, this isn’t 100% of what the $10 million+ linebackers all play. Walker wasn’t getting the 70% he usually gets in a game, so it seemed like he wasn’t completely healthy. The other linebacker we are certain is completely safe from is Takitaki.
The remaining linebackers on the squad can then be examined in terms of defensive snaps played when they were active:
Next, this week we ought to examine special teams as well:
Dialogue – 21
Diabate, who receives fewer defensive and special teams snaps than the other guys, seems like the clear winner in my opinion. Since I don’t think he will be claimed, they can re-sign him to the practice squad, where he can compete for a position on the roster at training camp the following season.
Here is a look at how many of each position has been used each week in one chart:
