Despite only 50 passing attempts inside the Red Zone, Carson Wentz still has ridiculous 20 TDs (tied with Wilson/Brady for most TDs inside Red Zone.) Dak Prescott has only 14 TDs inside the RZ along with the 2nd most interceptions (3) behind only Deshaun Kizer (5). Tom Brady continues to beat Father Time as he remains stellar inside the 20 yard line throwing 67 times with zero picks and 20 TDs! A whopping 15 of Russell Wilson’s 20 RZ TDs have been converted inside the 10 yard line.  Tom Savage has only completed 8 of 29 passes inside the 20 yard line (4 of 14 inside the 10 yard line), a concern for Hopkins owners heading into the playoffs.

Mark Ingram has the 2nd most Red Zone Rushing TDs, but only 25 attempts inside the 20. Despite playing last in Week 9, Zeke Elliott still has the 3rd most rushing attempts inside the RZ. His usage is ridiculous! Deshaun Kizer and Marshawn Lynch have 16 Red Zone Rushing Attempts, Kizer has converted for 5 TDs while Lynch has 4! Todd Gurley has scored 5 of his 8 TDs from inside the 5 yard line. Latavius Murray somehow has the 5th most RZ rushing attempts. LaGarrette Blount has only 28 RZ attempts this season. He had 71 last year! Mike Gillislee hasn’t played since Week 8, but still has more RZ attempts than Jordan Howard, Kareem Hunt, Devonta Freeman, Alvin Kamara and Lamar Miller. Gillislee was seemingly benched for a Red Zone fumble and has played sparingly since. He only has 2 fumbles during his 5 year tenure in the NFL.

Jordy Nelson (32) and Davante Adams (22) led the NFL in RZ targets last season. Nelson only has 12 RZ targets this year. Expect another regression next season for Nelson, while I’m expecting Adams to pop off! Jimmy Graham has the highest catch rate of any receiver inside the RZ catching 15 of his 25 targets! Graham has 9 TDs inside the RZ, 7 have came inside the 10. Last season Kyle Rudolph led all TEs in RZ targets with 25. He’s caught 12 of 13 targets this year! Throw him the ball! Tom Savage has thrown 29 passes inside the 20 yard line – 17 have gone to DeAndre Hopkins. Tom Savage has only completed 8 passes inside the 20 yard line – 7 have been caught by DeAndre Hopkins. Why are teams not adding extra coverage inside the RZ on Hopkins? Travis Kelce has converted only 4 of his 7 Tds inside the RZ. Rare for a Tight End with 3 TDs outside the Red Zone. Alvin Kamara leads all RBs with 13 targets, catching 10 for a total of 3 TDs. Julio Jones is seeing less than 1 Red Zone Target per game. Seriously?!
