Kyle Juszczyk

“Juice” has always been long on talent but short on opportunity.  Relentlessly hyped up for his athletic ability each season, the hybrid fullback has had some moments but never what could be considered a huge game.

Juszczyk has a shot at making a bigger than usual impact in week 7 thanks to the Cardinals’ stingy pass defense.  The Cards are particularly good at guarding tight ends, giving up only 143 yards and 1 touchdown this season.

That bodes poorly for Crockett Gillmore but also provides a huge opportunity for Justin Forsett and Juszczyk.  Joe Flacco is going to have to have some sort of safety valve underneath when things break down in the pocket, and those two are the obvious benefactors.
