Prokies: Week 5 (Smackdown Edition)

By Brett Smith | October 14
Kyle hit

We are already through five weeks of the Covid-19 era in the NFL and it's starting to feel like (somewhat) normal life again. This week, we saw some HUGE hits and big plays from our "Prokies" along with some new faces to the weekly updates!


Chuck Clark

Clark had another solid week in the Ravens rout against the Bengals. He recorded nine total tackles and a sack on Joe Burrow. He's still ranked in the top ten safety grades per PFF and shaping up to have his best year yet.

Terrell Edmunds

The Steelers were back in action this week against a struggling Eagles team. Terrell recorded five total tackles and also had a pass deflection in their win.

Tremaine Edmunds

Tremaine recorded eight total tackles in their brutal loss to the Titans on Tuesday Night Football.

Brandon Facyson

Woohoo! New Prokie adding to the stat line this week in a big way. With starter Casey Hayward going down in the fourth quarter with an undisclosed injury, Facyson was next man up. He recorded seven total tackles and forced a fumble in his first game recording more than 25 snaps. He played exceptionally well and expect to see more of him in the coming weeks.

Kyle Fuller

Kyle Fuller was the talk of the NFL all weekend helping the Bears to a big on win Thursday night. He recorded six tackles and forced a fumble. He also had one of the biggest hits of the year so far. Roll the tape!

Could you imagine that sound on the field with no fans? That was earth-shattering. Kyle ranks ninth in coverage per PFF grades, so needless to say QB's are still staying away from him. As will anyone coming across the middle.

Kendall Fuller

Since coming back from injury Kendall has been stellar on defense for Washington. He recorded four tackles, two pass deflections, and another interception against the Rams this week. He is now tied for first among the NFL in interceptions with three!

Oh yeah, he also ranks third in total defense for cornerbacks and third in pass coverage per PFF grades. An incredible season is in store for Kendall. Gotta love a brotherly rivalry!

Tim Settle

Settle got the nod again this week as the starter for Washington and recorded three total tackles. He now ranks tenth among interior defensive linemen in run defense per PFF grades.


Duane Brown

Brown was key to leading the Seahawks in their final, emphatic drive to defeat the Vikings Sunday night. He ranks 12th among offensive tackles per PFF grades and continues to show why he is a veteran.

Isaiah Ford

Ford continued increasing reps on the field this week recording two receptions for 23 yards in the Dolphins win over the 49ers.

Wyatt Teller

Teller is continuing his All-Pro season leading the Browns to another win over the Colts on Sunday. He is STILL ranked the number one guard in the NFL per PFF grades by a couple points. Unfortunately suffered a calf strain this weekend and is listed week to week.

Logan Thomas

Thomas only recorded one reception for four yards this week in Washington's loss to the Rams. He was targeted four times, but when Washington finds their answer at QB I expect is stats to increase.

The Joey Slye Section

Joey is still on track for a fantastic year. He recorded three more field goal makes that put him at 13 for 14 on the year. If you are looking for a solid fantasy kicker, Slye is becoming a great option.


Injury Report

Tyrod Taylor - Listed as 'out indefinitely' from punctured lung.

Dalton Keene
- Still listed on IR because of a nagging neck injury.
