Box Score Breakdown: Snaps, Routes, Air Yards & Usage Rates from Week 18

Box Score Breakdown: Snaps, Routes, Air Yards & Usage Rates from Week 18

This article is part of our Box Score Breakdown series.

I'm trying something new for the final week of the regular season, essentially combining large portions of Backfield Breakdown and Target Breakdown into one article — posted Monday — and then following up Tuesday with another article (or two) with additional analysis, injury updates, key takeaways from the box scores, waiver picks, etc. (minus the waiver picks now that we're into the playoffs).

All feedback is welcomed! Let me know what you think in the comments below on or on twitter @JerryDonabedian.

  • RoJo got some playing time in the first half, including his first TD as a Chief, but six of his 10 carries came in the fourth quarter. Don't expect to see much of him, if any, during the playoffs.
  • Before the fourth quarter, Kelce took 85% of snaps, JuJu took 81% and MVS got 63%.
  • Toney scored on a carry and had a receiving TD on a trick play called 'snowglobe wiped out by a penalty. He played only 29% of snaps but was again a priority when on the field.
  • Watson had a 67-yard catch on a go route early in the game. He's been playing a lot of snaps the past two months but even Saturday remained lightly targeted (just one look besides the big play).

  • Etienne took only one of nine snaps in the fourth quarter. That might be about blocking, but keep an eye out for any injury news.
    • Even before the final quarter, Etienne was at 67% snap share, whereas he'd topped 70 percent in four straight games Weeks 13-16 (before his workload was scaled back in the near-meaningless Week 17 matchup).

  • Bell and Woods split the No. 3 receiver role, while Njoku, Cooper and DPJ were all above 85% route share, per usual.
  • Njoku finishes the season as PFF's No. 9 graded TE, which I actually agree with. His QB play and target volume were inconsistent, but he played well and held up in an every-down role for the most part.

    • Fournette barely played, with his typical work going to Vaughn and Bernard (rather than White, who also should have an important role in the playoffs).
  • Otton played 11 of 17 snaps (65%) in the first quarter but just eight the rest of the game.
  • Godwin played all 17 snaps in the first quarter and had 4-37-0 on five targets.

  • London got his first career 100-yard game in his fifth consecutive week with at least eight targets and five catches. The late uptick in usage put him at 72-866-4 for the year.
  • Allgeier reached 1,000 rushing yards for the year, and the workload split went even more in his favor, though Patterson did score a TD in the second half.
    • Patterson is a potential cap casualty, turning 32 in March and with one year remaining on his two-year contract.. I thought he looked better than ever in September, but then he needed knee surgery and hasn't done much since.

  • Olave was targeted on 12 of 22 routes but didn't have a ton of success (nor did anyone else on the Saints) after the opening-drive TD.
    • Olave again fell around 60-70% snap share. Shaheed, the other rookie, led the team in routes and was second in targets (albeit a distant second).

  • Harris got more snaps and carries than Stevenson, who was targeted six times on 14 routes (only one more than Harris ran).
  • Parker returned from a concussion and put up 6-79-2 on a team-high-tying seven targets. 
  • Meyers, playing through a shoulder injury, took 79% of snaps. The shoulder has bothered him for a while, so don't be shocked if offseason surgery is ahead.
  • Henry played every single snap with Jonnu Smith (concussion) inactive again.

  • RB J.K. Dobbins and TE Mark Andrews were held out to rest.
  • Watkins had long gains on both of his catches but lost a fumble on the second.
  • Robinson had three drops and two catches on nine targets.
  • Likely was the only Raven above 65% route share, also leading the team in targets, catches and yards by wide margins.
    • Any hope Baltimore has for the playoffs depends on Lamar Jackson (ankle) coming back healthy and Likely being the second option in the passing game (which is probably beyond Greg Roman's level of ability/creativity).

  • Hurst handled his fourth-largest snap share of the season in his first official appearance since Week 13. (He missed Weeks 14-16 with a calf injury.)
  • Week 8 was the last time Mixon played more than two-thirds of snaps, and Week 9 was the last time he got more than 16 carries.
    • He's made up for it with receiving production, finishing with career highs for targets, catches and yards despite losing third-down work to Perine throughout the year.
    • On the other hand, Mixon averaged only 3.9 YPC and got his fewest carries per game (15.0) since his rookie year.

  • I can't believe someone who went to my Quaker high school scored a touchdown in the NFL. That'd be Tyler Badie, whose first TD might be described as pacifist given that it did no harm to the sixth-seeded Chargers (unlike their own head coach).
  • Jeudy almost got to 200 yards. Injuries messed up his season, but I saw enough to know I was wrong putting Sutton ahead of Jeudy last year. JJ looked friggin' awesome this past month.
    • Jeudy played only 20 snaps Week 13 his first game back from an injury, and put up 4-65-0 on four targets against Baltimore. After that, Jeudy averaged 91.6 receiving yards and 8.2 targets over the final five games, also adding the 3-39-0 rushing line in this one.

  • Patterson and Williams shared the backfield with Antonio Gibson (foot) and Brian Robinson (knee) both inactive.
  • Samuel's final two weeks resulted in three touches for a net of zero yards. He has one year left on his contract and a non-guaranteed salary of more than $10 million.
  • McLaurin scored an early TD, and he and Dotson each had a long gain. Washington didn't do much on offense otherwise.

  • Giant slayer Boston Scott got more work than usual. Maybe because of his history against the Giants? The Eagles otherwise doled out full workloads to starters in QB Jalen Hurts' return from a shoulder injury.
  • Watkins has 10 targets and three catches in three games since Goedert returned. And he still loses some of the WR3 snaps to Pascal.

  • Williams had a long TD brought back on a holding penalty. He was still only fifth among the team's WRs in routes, and saw only one target otherwise. He's fast. Very fast.
  • Chark had only 14 yards, but two of his three catches went for first downs at crucial moments of the game. His performance late this year has at least been good enough to earn another one-year contract with decent guarantees

    • Doubs and Cobb essentially were co-No. 3s
