Week 10 Rookie Review
Nov 11th – Nov 17th
Joe Burrow: 21/40 213 yards 1 TD
Joe Burrow had an average day for a Rookie QB, completing just over half his passes for 213 yards and a touchdown.
It was his first time going against the division rivals Pittsburgh Steelers, undefeated on the year, largely due to their exemplary defense.
Look for Burrow to get back to filling the stat sheet next week against the Washington Football Team.
Justin Herbert: 20/32 187 yards 2 TDs 1 INT, 4 Rush 10 yards 1 TD
In the first of many potential games, Justin Herbert’s chargers didn’t have enough to overcome Tua’s Dolphins.
Herbert still performed well, while light on air yards, Herbert did manage to find the endzone three times, showing his legs off again as he was able to pick up another rushing TD this week.
Firmly established as the future for the Chargers, Herbert will have plenty of opportunities to show off his skills against the other QBs of his draft class.
Tua Tagovailoa: 15/25 169 yards 2 TDs
In his third start, Tua gets his third win.
The winner narrative seems to have followed Tua from college to the NFL, with wins over the Rams, Cardinals, and Chargers.
Tua and the Dolphins are in the hunt for a playoff spot, and if the dolphins can keep finding ways to win, Tua might find himself in the race for ROTY.
Tee Higgins: 7 rec 115 yards 1 TD
Connecting with Burrow for a short TD, Tee Higgins has continued to develop with Burrow.
Becoming more of a red zone target, along with running better routes, Higgins has shown that he has the ability to be a running mate to Burrow for years to come.
Antonio Gibson: 13 carries 45 yards 2 TDS, 4 rec 20 yards
Antonio Gibson has continued to shine for the Washington Football Team.
Being a jack of all trades has Gibson involved in both the passing and ground attacks for Washington.
With Alex Smith stepping in to QB Washington, look for Antonio Gibson to increase his passing targets, as right now J.D McKissic seems to have Alex Smiths eye on passing downs.
D’Andre Swift: 16 carries 81 yards, 5 rec 68 yards 1 TD
D’andre Swift is rapidly becoming D’automatic, he is in line to see increased load opportunities as he has continued to perform and put up gaudy numbers even with limited touches thanks to a loaded RB room.
Moving forward Swift should see his touches increase, as the lions shift to Swift as the lead back going forward.
Brandon Aiyuk: 7 rec 75 yards 1 TD
Missing last week due to proximity to Covid, Aiyuk came out this week on fire, catching a First quarter TD.
With the bye week ahead and Deebo Samuel coming back, Aiyuk might see a drop in targets, but he showed during his stint as the Teams WR1 that he can be leaned on and should see plenty of usage going forward.
Justin Jefferson: 8 Rec 135 Yards
Averaging a Whooping 18.1 yards a catch on the season, Justin Jefferson has quickly become a favorite target of Kirk Cousins.
Jefferson is having a great rookie season, and if he stays on the pace he currently is on he will be in line to break Anquan Boldins Rookie Receiving Record of 1377 yards, his current pace has him finishing with 1432 yards.
Salvon Ahmed: 21 carries 85 yards 1 TD
Getting the lone back duties for the dolphins Salvon Ahmed burst onto the scene with 85 yards rushing and a TD.
Probably in line to receive most of the carries for the dolphins until the return of Myles Gaskins, Ahmed has a chance to cement himself onto the roster as the backup to Gaskins with another strong showing.
Autos: $10 - 30
