5 things you need to know for Tuesday
Good morning football fans! Here are the five things you need to know coming out Monday to get your morning started right:
- PFF’s Bryson Vesnaver takes a look at the league’s most sure-handed receivers by looking at dropped pass rate over the last two seasons. It’s no surprise to see players like Antonio Brown and Larry Fitzgerald at the sharp end of the list, but there are some surprises and notable honorable mentions in there too.
- Roberto Aguayo continues to struggle for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the kicker position and is under increasing pressure from Nick Folk for the job in 2017. Aguayo was put in a tough spot after being drafted in the second round of the 2016 draft, and so far his performance as a field goal kicker has been anything but worthy of that status.
- Washington QB Kirk Cousins is looking to get new WR Terrelle Pryor as many touches as possible within the offense. Pryor excelled last season for the Browns at some routes that Cousins did not produce on, so the combination has the potential to elevate the play of both players going forward, and could be an exciting combination for the 2017 season.
- Second-year Colts offensive tackle Le’Raven Clark has been working with the first team during OTAs at right tackle. Clark filled in at the position for the final three games of his rookie season, and while his run-blocking was solid, his pass protection was far from ideal, surrendering 14 total pressures on just 117 pass-blocking snaps.
- Ben Roethlisberger’s relative fantasy struggles on the road have been well-documented by this point. PFF Senior Fantasy Analyst Scott Barrett takes it to the next step, applying what we know about Roethlisberger’s subpar road performance to 2017 draft strategy, to determine where it makes sense to take the volatile Pittsburgh quarterback.
