Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 10 vs NE (1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Derby caught a short crossing route towards the end of the 2nd quarter for a minimal gain. Osweiler hasn't shown the same fondness for Derby that Siemian displayed, instead peppering Sanders and Thomas with nearly all his targets.
2017 Week 9 vs PHI (3 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Derby split out wide left and was targeted in the end zone on a deep pass down the sideline late in the 2nd quarter. Derby secured a crossing route for a gain of 11 early in the 4th quarter.
2017 Week 8 vs KC (4 / 2 / 21 / 1 rec)
Derby had a quiet day until he scored a touchdown late in the 4th quarter on a seam route from the inline position. He caught one more short curl route in the waning seconds of the 4th quarter.
2017 Week 7 vs LAC (7 / 6 / 66 / 0 rec)
Derby led the team with 7 targets, though most of them came in garbage time. He started the game out horribly with a fumble on Denver's first offensive drive after hauling in a deep comeback route. The Chargers recovered, but Denver managed to hold them on a goal line stand during the ensuing drive. Derby caught a shallow crossing route in the waning seconds of the 1st half. Siemian found him on a short out route for a gain of 5 late in the 3rd quarter. Siemian looked for Derby deep down the left sideline early in the 4th quarter, but overthrew the ball. Derby's longest reception was a 23 yard catch and run down the right seam late in the 4th quarter.
2017 Week 6 vs NYG (4 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Derby caught an out route for a 10 yard gain in the 1st quarter, his only catch of the day. He flexed out into the slot in the 3rd and was targeted on a curl route that was well defended by a linebacker.
2017 Week 4 vs OAK (6 / 4 / 75 / 1 rec)
Derby, who has shown flashes as a solid receiving tight end since being traded from New England, had a big day and scored his first NFL touchdown. He hauled in a deep out route for a catch and run down the right sideline in the 1st quarter, then scored on the next play with a crazy one-handed catch. Derby lined up at the fullback position, then ran out and up the right sideline. Siemian lofted the pass high, and Derby deftly plucked it out of the air with his right hand, never breaking stride or bringing the ball in until he was in the end zone. Derby caught a couple more passes from the slot in the 4th quarter, bringing his totals to a team-high 6 targets, 4 catches, and 75 receiving yards.
2017 Week 3 vs BUF (2 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Derby caught a short out route in the 2nd quarter, his only target of the day.
2017 Week 1 vs LAC (3 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec)
Derby flexed out in the slot and caught a curl route for 1st down yardage in the 2nd quarter. Derby nearly scored on a similar play later in the drive, carrying the ball down inside the 1 yard line. He picked up another 12 yards on a catch and run in the 3rd quarter, finishing with a short but efficient stat line- 3 targets, 3 catches, and 31 yards.
