O'Brien says he's "unsure" right now if Will Fuller V will be available for MNF game at Baltimore.
Fuller and the Texans play on Monday night so Fuller will be risky to wait on if you need him in your lineup. On top of that, he just hasn't been productive the last few weeks since Deshaun Watson went down for the season and Tom Savage took over.
Over the first 10 weeks of the season, no team dropped back to pass as often as the Seattle Seahawks. Their offense went through Russell Wilson more than ever before, especially during the three games they played without their top two running backs, Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde.
But signs point to a shift back to their more familiar run-heavy approach.
HC Pete Carroll's comments over the last few weeks seem to indicate the Seahawks are better with a more balanced offense. The story said the team's dropback rate over the first 10 weeks was tops in the NFL at 69.2%. Seattle was 31st in dropback rate at 54.9% from 2018 to 2019, Brian Schottenheimer's first two seasons as their offensive coordinator. Their rate increased to 71.9% in Weeks 8-10 as Carson (foot sprain) and Hyde (hamstring) were both sidelined. But with Hyde back against Arizona, Seattle's dropback rate fell to 62.3%.
All three Bronco QBs had close contact with Jeff Driskel, who was infected with COVID, without masks, breaking league protocols. But, none of them caught the virus, according to reports. As Klis points out, the Broncos and the three QBs could have played a Tuesday night game. Either way, Lock is expected to start against the Chiefs in Week 13.
Justin Jefferson became Minnesota's No. 1 receiving threat and saw double-digit targets (13) for the third time this season. And he had his second multi-touchdown day, with seven catches for 70 yards and two scores.
Of course Thielen is out of the lineup and on the COVID list, but Jefferson is showing he can step in. The story said Jefferson's longest reception of the day was 18 yards, a departure from the deep shots off play-action that usually come his way. The added attention is something Jefferson has been anticipating for weeks, working to perfect different releases and footwork to keep defenses guessing. Recently, we had a story about how teams are beginning to treat Jefferson as the Vikings WR1. With Thielen out of the lineup, Jefferson is showing he can deal with that kind of role and attention from defenses.
