Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 13 vs WAS (5 / 27 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 47 / 0 rec)
Clement had one of his best games of the season, surpassing 70 total yards for the fourth time. Clement was active in the pass game and the red zone, converting a third-and-short carry in the red zone and breaking off chunk gains on all three of his screen receptions. Clement's chemistry with offensive line blocking in the screen game, blending his patience and vision of the blocks with their timing was outstanding against Washington.
2018 Week 12 vs NYG (5 / 45 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 31 / 0 rec)
Clement was highly efficient on seven touches against the Giants, surpassing 70 total yards. Clement's highlight on the ground was an untouched third-down draw play gaining more than 30 yards, adding a broken tackle on a screen play for more than 20 yards. Clement converted a two-play play with a perimeter run, but was the clear second back to the rising Josh Adams entrenching himself as the starter.
2018 Week 11 vs NO (2 / 11 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 4 / 0 rec)
With Wendell Smallwood a distant third in the running back rotation, Clement was the secondary option to Josh Adams' lead status against the Saints. Clement did little on offense, being stuffed on two of his four touches, but did add a big kickoff return.
2018 Week 10 vs DAL (5 / 13 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / -5 / 0 rec)
Clement struggled against the Cowboys, only finding room on a first quarter draw play and perimeter run later in the game. Clement has been efficient as a receiver, but was stuffed on his lone screen opportunity and found no room on a red zone carry. With Josh Adams out-producing Clement and the Eagles favoring a pass-centric approach, Clement has shifted from viable early in the season to inconsequential in a matter of weeks.
2018 Week 8 vs JAX (4 / 6 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -1 / 0 rec)
Clement struggled against the Jaguars both from a committee rotation with Josh Adams firmly added as a key piece and Clement's lagging efficiency when seeing the field. Clement had so chances for optimized production with a screen pass and later a rushing attempt inside the 10-yard-line, but was stuffed on both occasions by the Jacksonville defense.
2018 Week 7 vs CAR (8 / 6 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Despite 10 touches, Clement barely grazed 20 total yards on offense against Carolina in his worst statistical game of the season. Clement's lone moment of impact came on a well-blocked screen pass for more than 10 yards. Clement was stuffed on third-and-short as a rusher, his most notable on the ground. Clement is firmly in a committee with Wendell Smallwood, but does see more optimal touches in the red zone and in the passing game as reasons for optimism.
2018 Week 6 vs NYG (11 / 43 / 1 rush, 3 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)
Clement remained in the secondary role to Wendell Smallwood, but was the more optimized running back in terms of opportunities. Clement saw more red zone and receiving work, including one notable drive where Clement gouged the Giants defense for an edge run in the red zone to the one-yard-line before finishing the drive with a goal line rushing plunge. Clement also added a 20-yard screen reception and a red zone catch. Despite Smallwood seeing 19 touches to Clement's 14, Clement had more impact and higher upside opportunities this week.
2018 Week 3 vs IND (16 / 56 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)
With Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles out against the Colts, Clement projected for a strong workload. He ended up with 19 touches, but the opening drives featured plenty of snaps from Wendell Smallwood and Clement looked to be a full-on committee. Clement remained on special teams, but was the clear better running back as he was the hurry-up back and broke three chunk runs breaking tackles along the way. Clement also had a 20-yard rush called back by penalty. Clement was in for one red zone drive but did not have any strong opportunities for a touchdown in the game. Even with a trimmed depth chart, Clement was in a heavy rotation with Smallwood and lacked clarity on his role beyond of a healthy mix of both backs atop the depth chart.
2018 Week 2 vs TB (6 / 30 / 1 rush, 6 / 5 / 55 / 0 rec)
From Week 1, Clement was the significant uptick player with Darren Sproles out of the lineup against Tampa Bay. Clement's 11 touches led the Eagles backfield and showed the best combination of power, elusiveness, and hands of the group. A heavy majority of Clement's yardage was concentrated on three touches. Clement was outstanding in the screen game, gaining more than 30 yards total on two catches including eluding a defender. Clement showed a little bit of everything from perimeter runs to receiving and a power run to convert on short yardage. Beyond the box score Clement had a chunk run where he ran over a defender called back by a holding penalty. With Jay Ajayi's usage and snaps being heavily managed, Clement is becoming more impactful to the Eagles backfield by the week.
2018 Week 1 vs ATL (5 / 26 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Clement was mixed in with Darren Sproles as the primary running backs for the Eagles in the first half against Atlanta. Clement had a rough outing, however as he saw minimal holes created by the offensive line and regular penetration stopped his runs before they started. In the second half, Jay Ajayi took over with most of the snaps and Clement saw minimal time on the field. On one of his few opportunities, Clement exploited a huge interior hole on third-and-short for a long gain and setting the Eagles up in the red zone.
