Jordy Nelson has been great, but his drop on what may have been a 94-yard TD would have changed the entire complexion of that game.

In this case, Eddie Lacy’s “probable” tag was the better indicator of his role than all the workload analysis that led up to W15.

23 touches, 98 yards for Fred Jackson. 65 touches, 267 yards in L3 games. PPR RB12 over that span.

360 yards passing for Ben Roethlisberger but zero touchdowns. That’s actually hard to do. View more photos and videos

Embedded image permalink LeVeon Bell made the most of his four straight “green” matchups. 830 total yards, 7 TDs. #1 RB, even with a bye!

Harry Douglas has averaged 6.3-77-.18 in the 11 games Julio has missed in the L2 seasons. 6.6-96-.40 in the 5 games that Roddy has missed.
