RED ZONE: Target Analysis – Week12

Week twelve is in the books and we have just one more week until the playoffs start.  We had seven teams score over 30 points and three teams go over the 40 point mark. The 49ers and Ravens continued their dominance on the rest of the league with both teams winning in convincing fashion.  There were a number of top end running backs that produced this week, some with multiple touchdown efforts and we welcomed back a tight end who came back with a bang.   


Scoring Opportunities The play started inside the 10 or ended inside the 5 yard line
RedZone Opportunities The line of scrimmage was inside the 20 yard line
Heart Breaks Play occurred more than 5 yards down the field and the play ended inside the 5 yard line

Leonard Fournette, Jacksonville Jaguars

Fournette hadn’t been in the end zone since week five and the two scores this week salvaged what would’ve been an otherwise pedestrian day for him.  Late in the third quarter with just under three minutes left, the game was pretty much out of hand at that point, but Fournette kept the drive alive on a 4th&2 from the Titan 10-yard line.  He made a catch on a screen pass and was tackled at the one and proceed to punch it in on the next play. Fournette would then get three cracks at breaking the plane again later in the fourth quarter.  He was able to convert on the third attempt hopping into the end zone on a third and goal from the half-yard line. The Jags went back to the run game in this one after giving Fournette just eight carries the week before, managing 97 yards on 24 carries.   

Nick Chubb, Cleveland Browns

Those owners that were worried about when Kareem Hunt came back and how it might affect Chubb and his usage, very well may have been right.  Chub still out-rushed Hunt in this one 21 to 8, however, Hunt did vulture a touchdown. Chubb finished the day rushing for 106 yards on 21 carries and scored a touchdown.  His touchdown came late in the fourth quarter with just over three minutes left in the game which was over by then, but points are points. The Browns were up by 17 at that point, so it was good fortune that they handed the ball to Chubb for a six-yard score.  The Browns have an easier schedule to close out the year getting the Steelers, Bengals, Cardinals, Ravens and then face the Bengals again. That’s three out of five remaining games playing against bad defenses in matchups Chubb should be able to exploit.

Jarvis Landry, Cleveland Browns

Landry had the ultimate revenge game against his former team on Sunday afternoon. He went off for 148 yards on 10 catches, scored two touchdowns and saw a team high 13 targets. His first score came on the opening drive of the game. Landry broke towards the end zone on a quick corner route as Beckham cleared out space taking defenders with him. Later in the second half from the five-yard line, Landry would find pay-dirt again. Mayfield found Landry running across the back of the end zone as Mayfield was scrambling around extending the play. Landry now has touchdowns in four consecutive games and again the Browns schedule is very favorable coming up the next few weeks.

Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

We never know which Bucs receiver is going to go off in any given week, but this week it was Godwin. Finishing the day with seven catches on eight targets for 184 yards and two touchdowns. His first touchdown was a beautiful 71-yard catch and run on a seam route up the middle of the field. Godwin made the catch, bumped a defender, and was off to the races. Later in the second quarter, Godwin from the two-yard line would make a great catch as he came across the line and made the grab off a deflected pass. Godwin went over 1,000 yards in a season for the first time in his career with his efforts in this one. Godwin is an electric player with the ball in his hands, the only thing that gets in his way is the inconsistency of Jameis Winston.
