Kerry Hyder - DE (Detroit Lions)
After taking a couple weeks off from the sack chart, Kerry had 2 this week in the Lions OT victory over Minnesota. He now has 7 on the season, good for 6th in the NFL, just 2.5 behind leader Von Miller. Hyder is in good company in the sack statistics, among players such as Khalil Mack (7.0), Von Miller (9.5), Brian Orakpo (7.0), and Dee Ford (9.0). Look for Kerry’s speed to continue to make him a force on the outside every week for the Lions.
Michael Crabtree - WR (Oakland Raiders)
The Raiders went to a more running heavy game against the Broncos on Sunday night, as quarterback Derek Carr only had 31 pass attempts, down from his 59 the week before. Crabtree was targeted 10 fewer times this game, and only had 2 receptions for a total of 27 yards. He did however have a highlight worthy bobbled catch in the 4th quarter on a low pass from Carr
DeAndre Washington - RB (Oakland Raiders)
With the Raiders going to a more rush heavy attack in Denver, Washington had a better shot at putting up some numbers, and maybe even his first regular season touchdown as a professional. Unfortunately for DeAndre, Latavius Murray received the bulk of the carries, and he only had 10 rushes for 35 yards. This was twice the amount of carries as last week, but only 3 more yards. He has carried the ball 5-10 times each game this season for a total of 302 yards on 62 touches.
Jakeem Grant - WR/KR/PR (Miami Dolphins)
After some speculation that Jakeem might be used in some variation of a reverse or misdirection, he continues to only see the field as a returner. He had a return for a score against the Titans a few weeks back, and if it hadn’t been called back for a penalty, would have had another against the Jets this week. Grant currently sits 4th in the league in kick returns (25.2 yards) and 7th in punt returns (11.0).
