Highest Rated Offensive Players: Marshal Yanda (17.4), Kelechi Osemele (10.1), Ricky Wagner (8.4), Joe Flacco (7.1), Justin Forsett (5.5).
The story this week is how Joe Flacco catapulted himself into the top five with his historic, career game against the Bucs. Had the Bucs put up any sort of fight, it would have been even better as Flacco was absolutely shredding them with ease. It will likely go down as his best game of the season, but Flacco has been very good in Gary Kubiak’s offense when he is on his game.
The offensive line continues to dominate, particularly at the guard position. Marshal Yanda had his best game of the year against the Bucs, nullifying the number one 3-4 defensive/nose tackle in the NFL, Gerald McCoy. Yanda is currently the highest ranked guard in the NFL.
Justin Forsett continued his career resurgence with yet another impressive and efficient day. Forsett is the number seven running back in the NFL, and is number one in yards per carry by a long shot. This may be a product of limited carries, but it isn’t for a lack of snaps. Forsett is ninth in total snaps among NFL running backs with 242.
