Dak Prescott (1.4 OTD) has scored on three of his 23 carries this season. On a per-look basis, Prescott’s 13.0 percent scoring rate is seventh highest in the NFL. Prescott also defied the numbers by rushing for six touchdowns (3.7 OTD) on 56 looks last year, though his scoring rate was a bit more reasonable.
Jonathan Stewart became the first Carolina player other than Newton to score a rushing touchdown and Christian McCaffrey broke the team’s single-season record for receptions in a single season with his five-catch, 49-yard effort, giving him 49 catches for the season. It wasn’t a chunk playfest by any means, but Newton probably will be happy to talk about this one.
He moved his family to Miami this year, though he retains his house outside Boston, where the oldest of his four children—a daughter—attends college. Florida, though, offers year-round baseball, attractive to his soon-to-be 14-year-old son. “He’s developing really good, so I want to be around the next couple of years to see how much I can help him,” Ortiz says.
Julio Jones (3.4 OTD) has managed only one touchdown this season. That 2.4 gap is the eighth largest in the NFL. Only five players have exceeded Jones’ eight end zone targets. Jones is fantasy’s No. 17 scoring wide receiver despite averaging 8.7 targets per game (only a slight decrease from 9.1 last year).
Javorius Allen (4.5 OTD) ranks 15th in the NFL in OTD but has scored only two touchdowns. Despite his primary gig as a passing-down back, Allen has handled four of the Ravens’ eight carries inside the opponent’s 5-yard line and also has an end zone target.
