Player of the Week

Nick Kwiatkoski (LB, CHI) had a big part in the Bears manhandling of the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. He played really well, blowing up multiple plays, like the one below, and finished with a team-high 10 tackles (9 solo) and a strip sack of Kirk Cousins! Look for Nick to have an expanded role in Week 5 for Da Bears.

Those Who Played

Tavon Austin (WR, DAL) only played 11 snaps in the Cowboys Week 4 loss to the Saints, hauling in his only target of the day for 5 yards.

Rasul Douglas (CB, PHI) played nearly every snap for the Eagles, recording 5 tackles in a TNF win in Green Bay.

Mark Glowinski (OL, IND) started at right guard for the Colts in their home loss to the Raiders.

Karl Joseph (S, OAK) played every snap for the Raiders, recording 4 tackles, including a tackle for loss in a win vs. Indianapolis.

Bruce Irvin (LB/DE, CAR) played in his first game of 2019, after returning from a hamstring issue that kept him out the first 3 weeks. He played 39% of the downs, recording 2 tackles, one of which was a sack of Deshaun Watson. Bruuuuuuuce came up big in his first game in Carolina!

Wendell Smallwood (RB, WAS) played just 4 downs for the ‘Skins embarrassing loss to the Giants. He didn’t receive any carries, but did haul in a catch for 14 yards.

Quinton Spain (OL, BUF) played every offensive snap for the Bills in their home loss to the Patriots.

Kyzir White (LB/S, LAC) has seen a severely reduced role in the past two weeks. After playing 90% of the snaps in Weeks 1 & 2, he’s gotten less than 25% of those snaps since. This week, White played just 25% of the game and recorded no statistics.

Daryl Worley (DB, OAK) played every snap for Oakland in a win against the Colts. He had 2 solo tackles.
