The NFL season eh? You wait months and months for it to arrive and then all of a sudden week five is finished already and the year is flying by. With about a third of the whole regular season done (and more of the fantasy regular season of course) we’ve got a pretty good idea of who’s good and who’s not. Let’s dive in shall we?
*Note: The Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos, New Orleans Saints and Washington Redskins were all on a bye week.
Haason Reddick played just 31 snaps this week as he transitioned to OLB. He’d been averaging 46 per week previously. Deone Bucannon is back at full-time inside and should be an every-week start as long as he can stay fit.
Kamalei Correa played just a single snap this week. Patrick Onwuasor managed 37.
On the edge we’re seeing a split amongst the veterans. Terrell Suggs (44), Za’Darius Smith (37) and Matt Judon (33) all had significant time. Rookies Tyus Bowser (9) and Tim Williams (5) did not.
