Good morning and welcome to Thinking Inside the Box, where I peruse the box scores for interesting tidbits of information…

Julian Edelman (7-79-2) will be a hot pickup this week, but don't forget about Kenbrell Thompkins (4-42), who had 14 targets in W1.

It was Shane Vereen, not LeGarrette Blount, who was the main ballcarrier with Ridley benched for fumbles. Vereen 159 yards on 21 touches.

We knew this: Danny Amendola (10-104, 14 targets) will be a PPR beast IF he can stay healthy. W1 completely encapsulated this.

I do think Stevan Ridley will get sizable work next week, though he's obviously on thin ice right now.

Fred Jackson (17 touches, 108 yards) vastly outplayed C.J. Spiller (22 touches 55 yards), which is not something I thought I'd be typing.
