Thinking Inside the Box: Week 11
Every Monday, Senior Editor John Paulsen takes to Twitter (@4for4_John) for Thinking Inside the Box, where he tweets different stats and tidbits from Sunday's box scores. There's always a wealth of interesting information, so we decided to compile it here for subscribers.
Still bullish on Eddie Lacy despite rough outing (16 touches, 48 yards, TD). NYG a tough matchup. Rodgers' return + good upcoming schedule.
Hakeem Nicks 4-50 (5) hasn't cracked 51 yards since Week 6. Another good matchup wasted this week.
Teams with Spiller are probably out of the playoffs, but there are some nice matchups after BUF's Week 12 bye (ATL, JAX, MIA).
Looks like Chris Ivory has taken over. Has carried the ball at least 15 times (and gained at least 98 yards) in 3 of his last 4 games.
Ray Rice lives! 28 touches, 148 yards & TD. Maybe the "hot hand" talk lit a fire under him. Terrible matchup W12, but sched. gets easier.
