2012 Fantasy Football: Week 7 Inside the Numbers

Print Friendly

Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots

Seattle held Tom Brady and the Patriots to one first down (a touchdown) in eleven red zone pass attempts.

 

Robert Griffin III produced the sixth game in 22 years by a quarterback that produced more than 50 rushing Defense-Adjusted Yards Above Replacement.

 

Matt Stafford’s yards per attempt decreased from 9.2 to 2.4 when he was under pressure.

 

Christian Ponder’s Accuracy Percentage under pressure has increased from 50.8% in 2011 to 69.4% this year.

 

Andrew Luck is receiving great protection from tackle Winston Justice, he tops the league in Pass Blocking Efficiency.

 

Ahmad Bradshaw led the league in big play runs (10+ yards) for the second straight week.

 

Felix Jones graded as the second best running back by Football Outsiders.  If he shows similar skills he will be well worth the waiver claim.  He is aided by center Phil Costa’s return.

 

Fred Jackson played 40 snaps to C.J. Spiller’s 31 and touched the ball five more times.  The Clemson product was decidedly more productive on the ground.

 

Randall Cobb had ten targets, two in the red zone, and has over 60 receiving yards each of the last three games.

 

Nate Burleson is holding off Titus Young, he is averaging 10.7 targets per game in the last four.  Young “earned” a spot on Pro Football Focus’ “Had a Bad Day” Team.

 

Kenny Britt produced well for fantasy owners with 62 yards and a touchdown but Football Outsiders rates his four catches in eleven targets as one of the least valuable games by any wide receiver.

 

Coaches used Darrius Heyward-Bey like he was fully healthy, he led Oakland receivers with fifty snaps.  Carson Palmer only looked his way once though.

 

A.J. Green has two drops in his last fifteen games.

 

Pregame speculation indicated that Aaron Hernandez would be limited to 20 snaps.  He played 38 with nine targets and appears safe to start this week.

 

Washington’s defense missed eighteen tackles with DeAngelo Hall setting the pace at five.  Just more statistical proof that this is a poor unit.
