Thinking Inside the Box: Week 6
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. We compile it here for subscribers.
Let’s start with that Packer game, which aged me about a month in the final quarter.
Eddie Lacy didn’t get it going (14 carries, 40 yards), while Starks saw 10 touches (42 yards). See a 65/35 or 60/40 split going forward.
Davante Adams played 78% of the snaps as the Packers’ WR3. Posted 6-77 (8) and had more targets than Randall Cobb. Near TD was tipped away.
Andrew Quarless played 68% of the snaps and caught the game-winner. No sign of Brandon Bostick so far. Richard Rodgers playing part-time.
Lamar Miller out-touched Knowshon Moreno 17 to 7. Dolphins probably easing Moreno back in, but Miller has played well.
Brandon Gibson was out, which allowed Jarvis Landry to play a season high 78% of the snaps. He reminds me of Anquan Boldin. 6-75-1 (8)
#FreeSankey happened, sort of. He turned 19 touches into a paltry 68 yards and Jackie Battle got the TD plunge. Sigh.
