Just missed it: Week Ten

Week 10 was an active week in terms of the Just Missed it plays for TDs or big plays. Here are our raw notes from our film reviews. If you have Victor Cruz, wouldn’t you like to know that he almost scored like 3 TDs as opposed to just looking at the Boxscore? I would.

Heath Miller just missed a potential TD grab, as the FS raked it out of his arms.

RG3 throws a heater off of Logan Paulsen’s hands in the end zone, obviously catchable but no touch from RG3 from just a few yards away
RG3 throws high to Garcon on slant for game-tying TD on GL target.
Santana Moss can only get one foot down in corner of end zone on potential game-tying TD

1st and goal, Ben Tate tackled at 1
Carson Palmer to Andre Roberts, who nearly makes catch in end zone, defensive holding called
Palmer to Roberts for 3-yard TD, incomplete
Case Keenum overthrows DeAndre Hopkins from 5-yard line

Vincent Brown should’ve had TD on long fade from Rivers in 2nd quarter but it fell through his hands…defender was in his face but the ball was perfectly placed—had to settle for another FG
Peyton Manning should’ve been intercepted early in the third as [...]

Just missed it: Week 9

It was a pretty light week in terms of the just missed it plays, but here’s what we picked up watching the tape from Week Nine.

Marvin Jones had a long TD taken off the board because of a holding call by Jermaine Gresham.

Leodis McKelvin punt return taken off the board by penalty
Jeff Tuel just missed Woods in back of end zone for potential TD, nearly made acrobatic catch for TD later in game

Steven Jackson has a TD run taken off the board because of a holding call.

Stl PK Greg Zuerlein missed a 43-yard attempt in the waning seconds of the first half.
Stl’s last drive in the game’s final 15 seconds, 4th and 4 at Ten 26, Clemens throws for WR Austin Pettis who gets a hand on the ball but can’t haul it in.
Preceding the final drive, Tavon Austin nearly broke a punt return for a TD but stepped out of bounds along the way.

Was PK Kai Forbath has his 25-yard FG attempt blocked on Redskins opening drive. Tough to take for Washington which had a 16-play, 92-yard drive consume 9:03 and come up with nothing.
Forbath missed a long one to end the first half, no good from about 59 [...]

Just missed it: Week Eight

Here is another look at our raw notes from our Week Nine tape study. Wouldn’t you want to know it if you guy at least almost scored a TD or made a big play last week? That’s why we do this.

WR Ted Ginn lets one go right between his on potential 73-yard TD bomb, perfect throw
Cam Newton just overthrows Greg Olsen in the end zone, can’t get both feet down

Heath Miller has a TD taken off the board by replay

Carson Palmer just a bit high on deep ball downfield to Larry Fitzgerald for a potential score

Reggie Bush had two goal-to-go carries late in the first qtr: 1st and G at Dal 3, got one yard; and 2nd and G at Dal 2, no gain.
Dez Bryant’s first target of the game: :55 seconds left in 2nd qtr, to the end zone, little alley oop but Bryant couldn’t get to it. He scored on the next play.
Calvin Johnson had his 87-yard play where he was caught from behind at the Dal 3 in the first quarter and wound up scoring on the drive a few plays later.
Johnson, in mid-4th qtr., 1st and G at the 10, slant route, makes catch at 2 [...]

Just missed it: Week Seven

Here is another look at the week that was in terms of the “just missed it” plays. Yes, I know a “just missed it” TD is worth 0 points, but I think these notes are worth publishing because I’d want to know if a guy who didn’t do anything for me in a given week at least almost scored, or was in a position to score.

Marshawn Lynch had a touchdown taken off the board by review
Tate punt return for TD taken off the board by penalty
Brandon Browner trips over himself on way to end zone on potential pick-six, Marshawn finishes it off two plays later
Palmer leads Ellington a yard too far in end zone on wheel route against LB-man coverage

 

Jacoby Jones had a step for potential long TD pass but Flacco throws it way too short.
Derek Moye has a potential long TD pass slip through his fingertips for TD. Did make an acrobatic catch earlier in the game
Emmanuel Sanders kickoff return for TD taken off the board, stepped out of bounds.

 

Case Keenum had Garrett Graham wide open deep downfield for potential TD, just overthrew him off of play-action roll to opposite side
Graham dives for end zone on run along sideline, [...]

Just missed it: Week Six

Here are raw notes from our Week Six tape study on all of the “just missed it” plays from this past week.

Packers D had an awesome goal-line stand midway thru 2nd quarter, stopping Rice (3 attempts) and Pierce (1 attempt) on four goal-to-go situations from the 4-yard line and closer.
GB PK Mason Crosby missed a 44-yd FG late in 2nd qtr.
With 12:54 left in 3rd on 3rd and 4 at BAL 28, GB QB Rodgers threw deep for WR Jordy Nelson on a corner route in the end zone but BAL CB Jimmy Smith intercepted the pass and ruined a potential TD.
Rodgers again to Nelson on 1st and 20 at BAL 35, but Lardarius Webb knocked the ball away, preventing a TD.
Ravens WR Marlon Brown nearly went 65 yards for a TD taking a short 1st and 10 pass from the BAL 35 over the middle in stride from Flacco. He was forced out of bounds after gaining 59 yards to the GB 6-yard line at 5:58 of the third quarter.
On 1st and goal at the GB 6, Ravens WR Tandon Doss takes an over the shoulder pass in left corner of end zone but stepped out of bounds on [...]

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
