Brandon Gibson has been a nice addition to the Miami Dolphins roster this year. He has started all 6 games and accumulated 29 receptions for 322 yards and 2 touch-downs. Brought in to replace fan favorite Davon Bess, Gibson has shown that he is a capable slot receiver and a go to guy for Tannehill on 3rd down situations. His extra effort acrobatic jump for a touchdown in Miami’s loss to the Buffalo Bills this past weekend gets him best play of the week for the Miami Dolphins.
New York Jets
Chris Ivory brought in from New Orleans has put together 219 yards on 68 carries. He is a favorite for the Jets in 1st down situations and has had great results when facing division rivals New England Patriots chewing up a combined 156 yard in two games. After this last game, Ivory has made his case that he deserves a bigger role in this Jets offense and i would be surprised if his carries increase from game to game.
Mario Williams is currently tied for 2nd in sacks in the NFL and he belongs to the Buffalo Bills. Williams had three tackles – which included two sacks – and a forced fumble in Sunday’s win over Miami. As expected, he was able to burn an outmatched Miami’s Tyson Clabo a few times, and Williams’ last sack allowed the Bills to make a comeback in a game that was slipping away. He now has an eye-popping 10 sacks on the season.
New England Patriots
Edelman has been the most reliable target for Tom Brady this year, catching 70 percent of the passes thrown his way, which is significant considering he has seen at least seven targets in every contest. Edelman stats for the NE vs Jets game are 5 receptions for 44 yards with an 8.8 average. He is not burning up the turf with huge numbers but has been the most integral part of the New England offense that boasts very little in the Wide Receiver department.
