Week 6 vs. SD
Receiving: 4 / 72 / 1 on 5 targets
With many of the Saint Louis receivers banged-up, the talented Alexander had a chance to deliver a breakout game. And he did not disappoint. While all of his work was done in the first half, it was extremely impressive work nonetheless. He made a nice leaping catch on a floater on the sideline for his first grab. But it was his second catch that was most exciting. He beat his man down the seam and got behind him in the end zone, then laid out for a diving touchdown grab. He later added a quick catch near the sideline. Despite being well within the defender's reach, he simply turned on the jets and ran right by him to make the first down. He's probably not on a lot of owners' radar right now because he's been buried on the depth chart until now, but he's definitely a name to keep in mind because the Saint Louis receiver stable has been in a constant state of flux all season long.
Week 7 vs. TB
Receiving: 1 / 6 / 0 on 1 targets
Alexander was only on the field for a handful of snaps and didn't get any deep targets to show off the speed that was so impressive last week. His role in the offense is going to be too inconsistent to trust, so you can probably throw him back if you added him last week.
Week 12 vs. DEN
Receiving: 4 / 95 / 0 on 6 targets
Alexander only had 4 catches but he made them count against Denver's outmatched secondary. Alexander used his body to shield defenders from the ball on short routes over the middle. He routinely had 1 on 1 coverage, especially after PA fakes from Bradford in which Alexander was able to win most of them. He drew a pass interference play for his team but his biggest play came on a deep sideline catch where he blew by his defender for a relatively easy throw and catch.
Week 13 vs. ARI
Receiving: 2 / 20 / 0 on 7 targets
Danario Alexander made a nice catch on a shallow cross route for a decent gain and was targeted on a fade route deep as the Rams tried to take advantage of his size, but the nature of the game plan for the Rams meant that Alexander didn't need to play a big role.
Week 14 vs. NO
Receiving: 0 / 0 / 0 on 1 targets
Despite a promising Week 13 performance, Alexander was targeted only once in Sunday's game and was held without a catch. Going forward, it doesn't look like he has much value save for a very questionable bench spot if you're high on his keeper value.
Week 15 vs. KC
Receiving: 0 / 0 / 0 on 4 targets
Alexander was targeted deep a few times, but Bradford was off on the throws. He also had a catch overturned by reply and could not get to a ball thrown his way near the end zone. He is still a nice deep dynasty prospect, but Alexander has failed to come anywhere near the impact made in his debut since that auspicious arrival on the scene.
Week 16 vs. SF
Receiving: 6 / 99 / 0 on 7 targets
Danario Alexander looked the part for the Rams offense on Sunday. He didn't make a significant impact until the second half, but made several nice catches including a feisty 17 yard catch and run that showed how physical and determined he can be. His biggest catch came off play action as Bradford launched a pass down the left sideline. Alexander thought he hadn't been touched by the DB and ran it in to the end zone, but he stepped out of bounds. Alexander looked very polished and crisp in his route running.
Week 17 vs. SEA
Receiving: 3 / 14 / 0 on 5 targets
Alexander saw the field and took more snaps in week 17 than he had all-season so it looked like they wanted to feature him this week. However, he was held in check on a 3/14 night and he had a back-breaking miss on a deep ball when the game was on the line. On the play he flat out beat double coverage but had the ball go right between his hands.
