If you follow me closely on twitter, you know that I am done writing my Studs n’ Duds article for now. I have a new job and since I can’t quite get the podcast, my rankings and my Love/Hate post all done that day, I had to do a little shuffling of the schedule. I decided that I can bring more value to my readers with a new post on Tuesdays and this is the first one. From here on out, there won’t be paragraphs of text, just succinct thoughts and facts for you to analyze however you chose. Lastly, I am not in love with the name of the post so feel free to give me some ideas in the comments or by email!
Kendall Hunter is averaging 5.4 yards per carry, which is exactly the same as Frank Gore.
He is accounting for just about one third of the carries with both backs healthy.
Kendall Hunter is more than just a handcuff.
Drew Brees is the top scoring fantasy player in the NFL with 116 points.
Drew Brees is the only one of the top 7 QBs to have already had his bye week.
RGIII is completing over 70% of his passes.
He is the only QB completing over 70% of his passes.
If he didn’t run again the entire season, I would still rank him as a top 10 RB.
Alfred Morris is one of only 5 running backs in the NFL with 100 or more carries through the first 6 weeks of the season.
He is averaging 4.9 yards per carry.
He is the 5th highest scoring RB in the NFL for fantasy owners.
I love absolutely everything about Alfred Morris.
Jamaal Charles leads the NFL with 552 rushing yards.
Arian Foster is in 2nd place with 532 rushing yards.
Jamaal Charles has carried the ball 29 times less than Arian Foster, which is a full game-worth of touches.
AJ Green has scored a touch down in every game this season, except for week 1.
Andy Dalton is an average at best when it comes to throwing the deep ball.
AJ Green has either 5 receptions, a touchdown or 100 yards receiving in all but three games of his career.
None of those games were this season.
AJ Green is the best overall receiver in the National Football League.
Brian Hartline leads the NFL with 514 receiving yards.
He was not even targeted ONCE in week 6 against the Rams.
I do not trust Brian Hartline as a weekly starter, even at the flex position.
Washington’s two best defensive players are on IR.
They have allowed 1234 receiving yards and 8 TDs to opposing wide receivers this season.
Any starting receiver is worthy of a flex-play against the Washington Redskins secondary.
That is all the stats, observations and inferences that I have for you this week.
