SKILL POSITIONS:

Khalil Herbert, Chicago Bears

Kansas City slaughtered Chicago’s offense, and Herbert suffered heavily. He rushed for 31 yards on seven carries, with his longest rush being an 11-yard breakout. Herbert has also yet to score a touchdown this season.

Logan Thomas, Washington Commanders

Thomas was ruled out against the Bills due to a concussion he sustained against the Broncos the previous week. Get well soon Logan!

OFFENSIVE LINEMEN:

Christian Darrisaw, Minnesota Vikings

Darrisaw returned from his ankle injury in week one to anchor the Vikings' o-line. While his pass-blocking was better than average, Darrisaw wasn’t so great on the run, as he was graded a 52.1 per PFF for run-blocking – a drop by 13 points compared to week one – in Minnesota’s heartbreaking loss to Los Angeles.

Brock Hoffman, Dallas Cowboys

Hoffman was thrust into Dallas’s starting lineup vs. Arizona after starting center Tyler Biadasz was ruled out due to injury. Hoffman fared well on the pass defense, posting a 75.9 rating, but struggled to protect the run with a 52.1 rating.

Wyatt Teller, Cleveland Browns

Teller posted his worst overall rating this season, as he struggled to protect against the Titans’ defensive-line on run-plays.

Duane Brown, New York Jets

Brown was placed on injured reserve the day before the Jets kicked off against the Patriots due to a hip injury, and he will miss at least the next four games. Get well soon Duane!

FRONT SEVEN (D-Line and Linebackers)

Tim Settle, Buffalo Bills

Settle played on 18 snaps against his former team in the Commanders, and did not register any stats.

Tremaine Edmunds, Chicago Bears

Edmunds made six tackles, assisted on two, and missed three tackles in the Bears’ embarrassing loss to the Chiefs.

Divine Deablo, Las Vegas Raiders

Deablo has continued to shine on the Raiders’ defense. He accounted six tackles in Las Vegas’ loss to Pittsburgh Sunday night, and made a huge hit as well.

DEFENSIVE BACKS AND SECONDARY

Terrell Edmunds, Philadelphia Eagles

Edmunds didn’t see much action in the secondary, but he wrapped up the Buccaneers twice in the Eagles’ Monday night win over Tampa Bay.

Kendall Fuller, Washington Commanders

Recording his best game Sunday, Fuller was one of the lone bright spots in Washington’s ugly loss to Buffalo, as he accounted for an interception. He posted a 92.1 overall rating on PFF, and when the Bills targeted him, they actually lost yardage: in five total targets, Fuller averaged -1 yards per reception. Currently, he is graded as the 2nd-best CB in the NFL.

Greg Stroman Jr., Chicago Bears

Stroman Jr. made two tackles Sunday against Kansas City. His side was targeted six times, and on five receptions, he gave up 56 yards.

SPECIAL TEAMS

Joey Slye, Washington Commanders

Slye knocked down a field goal late in the contest to put the only points Washington would post up on the board Sunday against Buffalo.
