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.
The Lions didn’t get off the plane until halftime. Tate continues to roll (7-151-1) with Calvin out. Expect WR2 numbers from Tate ROS.
Theo Riddick (11 touches, 79 yards, TD) is basically Reggie Bush when Bush is out. Week 8 #12 RB in standard, #6 in PPR.
Joique Bell’s final numbers (16 touches, 61 yards) were disappointing, but he didn’t have much room to run, especially in 1st half.
Antone Smith’s TD:touch ratio is regressing.
Lions were a tough matchup for the ATL WRs, but Matt Ryan did throw two touchdowns (to a backup RB and a backup TE).
Knile Davis had one carry before halftime, but finished with 16 for 49 yards and a TD. Game flow helped his workload.
