The Indianapolis star is trying to prove that running backs do matter, leading the Colts into playoff contention and approaching some long-standing Football Outsiders records.
Detroit's second-year back had 133 yards from scrimmage against Pittsburgh but still finishes last in our running back rankings for the week.
We look at the best rookie wideouts (and one tight end) to find who's really having the best season.
The fifth signal-caller selected in April has outplayed the four passers taken before him. We break down where Jones has been successful while Lawrence, Wilson, Fields, and the others have failed.
Not much is going right for Carolina this season, and that's especially true for their veteran wideout who is threatening to set all sorts of negative records. We explain and also list the best passers, runners, and receivers of Week 7.
Dolphins running back Myles Gaskin couldn't find any space as a runner against Jacksonville, and he showed terrible hands as a receiver too. We look back at the history of backs who struggled similarly in both categories. Plus: Kyler Murray's surprisingly terrible rushing day; the yo-yo season of Daniel Jones; and the best passers, rushers, and receivers of Week 6.
At an age when most quarterbacks have long since retired, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers legend remains one of the best passers in the league. We look back at the long, tumultuous history of Brady-Manning discourse at Football Outsiders and point out why best-ever debates remain unsettled. Plus, the best passers, runners, and receivers of Week 5.
It has been a long time since we have seen a player switch from runner to receiver (and back?) and succeed the way Cordarrelle Patterson has done for Atlanta this year. We look back at Patterson's career day against Washington and the history of players who have made similar transitions. Plus, the best passers, runners, and receivers of Week 4.
It has been a long, long time since we saw a quarterback give up so many sacks with so few completions as Justin Fields had in his first NFL start. We look at the history of high-sack, low-completion games in search of any hope for the Bears' young signal-caller. Plus the best passers, runners, and receivers of Week 3.
The Tennessee Titans overcame a big halftime deficit to escape Seattle with an overtime win, and running back Derrick Henry was the key to their comeback. Henry has a reputation for playing better at halftime, but has that really been the case? And do other running backs have a similar knack for playing better late in games? Plus the best passers, runners, and receivers of Week 2.
