Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 12 vs KC (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -1 / 0 rec)
Janovich saw plenty of snaps as a lead blocker, but he only touched the football once on a short swing pass out of the backfield that lost yardage in the 1st quarter.
2016 Week 10 vs NO (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Janovich saw plenty of snaps as a lead blocker, and leaked out of the backfield to haul in a short pass over the middle in the 3rd quarter for a gain of 9.
2016 Week 7 vs HOU (1 / 1 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Janovich had 2 targets on the day, the 1st of which was really a throwaway by Siemian. Janovich caught the 2nd target for a 12 yard gain in the 2nd quarter after bursting through the line and drifting out into the flat from the fullback position. Janovich had a chance to vulture a goal-line touchdown run at the end of the 3rd quarter, but he came up inches short of the score and had to lead the way for Devontae Booker on the next play. Janovich was featured in the offense frequently to boost the blocking in the run game.
2016 Week 5 vs ATL (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Janovich spent most the first half lead-blocking for Anderson and Booker. He was targeted once in the passing game early in the 1st quarter, but Lynch overthrew him badly. He was called upon to carry the ball once in the 2nd quarter, converting on 4th and 1 to extend a drive into Atlanta territory. Denver had fallen behind and abandoned the run game by the 2nd half, and Janovich did not see much action as the offense operated in the shotgun with 4WR and 5WR formations.
2016 Week 3 vs CIN (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Janovich secured his lone target of the day for 13 yards and a 1st down. He plowed through the line from his fullback position and then leaked out into the flat on the left side of the field, snagging the pass and dancing up the sidelines for the gain. Janovich also logged a carry late in the 4th from the Cincinnati 3 yard line. He motioned from TE to FB before the snap and took the fullback dive off right guard, making a nice second effort after contact but eventually being drug down by multiple defenders.
2016 Week 2 vs IND (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Janovich drifted out of the backfield into the left flat during Denver's first drive, catching the pass from Siemian and taking it up the sideline for 11 yards. The Broncos alternated between 3WR/TE sets and 2WR/TE/FB sets for most of the day, with Janovich getting plenty of snaps as a lead blocker for Anderson and Booker. Janovich had a nice downfield block to protect his QB on Siemian's lone scramble of the day in the 3rd quarter.
2016 Week 1 vs CAR (1 / 28 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Here's an odd stat for you- fullbacks have scored a touchdown in the opening game of the NFL season for the last 4 years. Vonta Leach(Ravens) caught a short TD in 2013. John Kuhn(Packers) pounded one in for a short rushing TD in 2014. Will Johnson(Steelers) had a short TD plunge in 2015. In 2016, Broncos' rookie fullback Janovich only touched the ball once, but continued the trend with a glorious 28 yard gallop for Denver's first score of the night. The run tied CJ Anderson(who also had a 28 yard run) for the longest offensive play of the game. The Broncos brought all their receivers in tight and lined Anderson and Janovich up in the I-formation, drawing most of the Carolina defense into the box. Janovich, who had already thrown a couple of great blocks on the drive, took a quick handoff from the fullback position and burst through the line over the right guard, shedding a tackle attempt by the safety and turning on the jets before many of the defenders even knew what happened. Janovich saw a lot of offensive snaps, and threw some key lead blocks, including a nice block on CJ Anderson's longest run of the night in the second quarter. Janovich's touchdown run capped off the same drive.
