Week 5 Game Notes

Jets: Patrick Mahomes threw 50 TD passes in his first season as the starter (580 attempts)

-          At his current pace, Zach Wilson will throw TD pass #50 on his 2,140th attempt … 3rd quarter of his 63rd career game (somewhere around Thanksgiving, 2024)

FalconsKyle Pitts now has 4.9 more PPR points than Travis Kelce did through 5 career games

-          Pitts scored 29.9 DK points (season prior: 33.9)

PackersDavante Adams had 117 yards and a TD … at halftime. His 9th game since the beginning of last season with 100 yards and a TD (most in the NFL).

Bengals: Ja’Marr Chase has a 30+ yard catch in every game this season (40+ yarder in 4 of 5)

Odell Beckham is the only active player that had 1,000 receiving yards AND 10 TD catches as a rookie … I like Chase’s chances at making that a list of two

  • His 17-game pace: 1,550 yards and 17 TDs

LionsJamaal Williams has more rush attempts D’Andre Swift in consecutive games

-          Swift has led the Lions in rushing yards just once this season

VikingsAlexander Mattison in the 2 games without Cook: 64 touches for 324 yards

Broncos: Let Javonte Williams cook … he’s yet to have more than 15 touches in a game. But last 2 weeks: 15 carries for 109 yards

-          Week 5: 1 fewer carry than Gordon but 27 more rushing yards

SteelersChase Claypool’s receiving yardage total has increased each game he’s played this season (caught his first TD on Sunday)

DolphinsMyles Gaskin had 10 CATCHES (enter ing the game, he was averaging 7.3 CARRIES per game)

-          He had 71% of their RB carries

-          He had 37% of their total reception

Bucs: Rare breed … with almost 0 rushing upside, Tom Brady has scored over 27 fantasy points in 4 of 5 games this season

-          75+ yards in 4 straight games for Mike Evans

Saints: Season-high 5 catches for Alvin Kamara

-          70+ rushing yards in 4 of 5 games this season

WashingtonTerry McLaurin caught 15 of 18 targets in Weeks 1-2 … since: 14 catches on 31 targets

Eagles: Rush TD or multiple pass TD in all 5 games this season for Jalen Hurts

-          3 pass TD for Hurts in Week 1 … just 4 in the 4 games since

PanthersRobby Anderson has turned 20 targets into just 74 yards over the past 3 weeks

TitansDerrick Henry is the first player with MULTIPLE games of 130 rushing yards AND 3+ rush TDs in a season since 2007 (Adrian Peterson) … it’s only Week 5!

Jags: Is Marvin Jones not cut out to be the WR1? Obviously wasn’t the undisputed guy in DET … last two weeks (totals), largely without DJ Chark to attract defensive attention: ____ catches for ___ yards with __  TDs

-          First 3 weeks: 5.7 catches per game for 64.7 yards (scored in 2 of 3 games)

PatriotsHunter Henry has 5+ targets in 3 straight games and has scored in back-to-back games

-          Henry had more catches than any other Patriot had targets in Week 5

TexansChris Conley and Chris Moore combined for 8 catches, 193 yards and 2 TD … Brandin Cooks: 3 for 23

Bears: In 2015, Allen Robinson had 1,400 yards and 14 TDs in a Blake Bortles offense in 16 games. How bad is this season? His current 16-game pace: 579 yards and 3 TD

-          Hell, his current 40 game pace (2.5 seasons): 1,448 yards and 8 TDs

RaidersDerek Carr has a total of 402 passes yards the past 2 weeks (he averaged 400 through 3 weeks)

-          5+ catches in all 5 weeks for Hunter Renfrow. It’s boring, but you know what you’re getting and it doesn’t seem to matter how Carr plays

ChargersMike Williams has four career games with at least 7 catches and 80 receiving yards … they’ve all come this season

-          Austin Ekeler makes history

Browns: 2021 Nick Chubb is 2019 Derrick Henry? Henry averaged 16.8 carries per catch that season while averaging 5.1 yards per carry. Chubb this season: 18 carries per catch and 5.8 yards per carry.

49ersDeebo Samuel has at least 8 targets in every game and has a rush attempt in 4 straight games. The offense has looked different week-to-week, but they continue to use him in a fantasy friendly manner.

Cardinals: Did you know that Kyler Murray doesn’t have a 20-yard rush this season? Or that he has just 3 TD passes over the past 3 weeks after throwing 7 in his first two games of the season?

GiantsKadarius Toney had 14 yards on 4 catches in his first 2 games. In his last 2 games (without Shepard): 267 yards and 16 catches

CowboysAmari Cooper has caught exactly 3 passes in 4 straight games. This is a run first team and his volume is … concerning (though the fantasy numbers on the whole look fine).

Bills: Josh Allen produced his 6th game since the beginning of last season with 310 pass yards AND a rush TD last night. That not only leads the league, it’s more over that stretch than Mahomes (3), Rodgers (1) and Wilson (1) combined!
