Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 7 vs NYG (9 / 7 / 55 / 0 rec)

Lance Kendricks continues to build his role in this offense as he had a season-high in receptions and targets. Last week was an ideal matchup for Kendricks, and it looks like he is proving that he will have a sustained role as a pass catching receiver moving forward and it was not just one matchup. Kendricks was used a lot in the dump off a short passing game as a check down receiver. He is not known for any deep route running and is expected to continue in this role, but it is good to see his volume and role increasing from earlier in the season.

2016 Week 6 vs DET (8 / 5 / 34 / 1 rec)

Kendricks pulled in 5 of his 8 targets for 34 yards and a touchdown against the Lions this week. He finally saw his numbers in the red zone increase and got those tough short yardage plays they brought him in for. Kendricks tied Britt for the team lead in targets this week, adding to his value going forward. Just like the rest of the receiving core, Kendricks' numbers are going to depend on which Case Keenum shows up each week. This was one of the best matchups of the year as Detroit has really struggled against tight ends this season, so do not overreact to this on a going forward basis.

2016 Week 5 vs BUF (3 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)

Kendricks pulled in 2 of his 3 targets for 24 yards but was largely quiet in the red zone. Kendricks is a big body tight end that was supposed to help score touchdowns but has not lived up to that bill thus far this year. He did have the one big 21-yard catch, but this came as the Bills were in a prevent defense towards the end of the season. Kendricks has yet to find the end zone this season and just has two red zone targets on the season which is concerning for the tight end on a team that is struggling inside the red zone.

2016 Week 4 vs ARI (7 / 5 / 52 / 0 rec)

Lance Kendricks was the surprise of this game, as coming into the game the Cardinals had been one of the best teams against tight ends and the Rams had been one of the worst tight end offenses in the league. Kendricks had seven targets in this game which coming into this game he only had 10 total targets. Kendricks had a 27-yard reception called back due to an illegal man downfield. Kendricks is a player to watch as Case Keenum continues to improve within this offense that he could be a sneaky player over the next few weeks.

2016 Week 2 vs SEA (6 / 4 / 61 / 0 rec)

Kendricks was able to take advantage of a favorable matchup this week and found a soft spot in the Seattle zone for a 44-yard play inside the five-yard line. Kendricks almost had another 30-yard reception but was only able to get one foot in bounds along the sidelines. Seattle historically has struggled against the tight end position as they allowed the eighth most fantasy points to tight ends in 2015, and their linebackers were primarily focused on stopping the run in this game thus allowing Kendricks to find a few holes in this defense.

2016 Week 1 vs SF (3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)

Lance Kendricks only had 3 targets in this game, and wasn't really a factor as when he was in the game he was often kept in to block. The one pass that Kendricks did not catch was thrown behind him for an interception. Kendricks is more of a blocker and there isn't much of an expectation going forward for the tight end.
