The Changes that occur during the NFL's stretch-run
We're at a point of the NFL season where a lot of subtle shifts take place. Young players are physically or mentally wearing down. Most quarterbacks will see a slight deterioration in arm strength down the stretch due to their workload — and defenses know it. And speaking of defenses, they've seen enough tape on their upcoming opponents to have solid game plans to stop or limit an offense's staple plays.
You'll see some of these developments as underlying themes of this week's topics. Among this week's topics, you'll get a break-down Travis Kelce's gigantic day and the underlying question of Patrick Mahomes II' decision-making mindset. You'll learn how the Lions thwarted some dangerous elements of the Rams' passing game and why Josh Reynolds is still worth you weekly consideration in larger lineup formats.
Dallas was another defense that figured out a high-powered attack when it stifled the Saints' tandem of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram II. You'll learn how it happened and if it's translatable for opponents facing New Orleans in December.
Rookies Justin Jackson and Dante Pettis are emerging, and you'll learn more about their skills and how that matters in the short-term and long-term future. Quarterback development can be like watching grass grow. We'll examine a blade of grass in Deshaun Watson's game.
Wrapping up this column is a series of miscellaneous thoughts about players based on this week and the month ahead and of course, Fresh Fish.
