WR Corey Coleman - New York Giants
|5-11, 194||Born: 7-6-1994||College: Baylor||Drafted: Round 1, pick 15 (2016)|
2018 Week 14 vs WAS (2 / 2 / 43 / 0 rec)
Corey Coleman made some nice plays against the Redskins on Sunday and could have had a bigger day. He wasn't targeted much from Manning who managed to spread the ball very evenly amongst his teammates in the absense of Beckham. Coleman was open on a go route in the first quarter and dove for a long ball along the sideline but failed to come up with it despite getting his hands on it. It was ruled he was interfered with previously so that kept the Giants moving. He later caught an over the shoulder grab along the sideline which was a perfect ball from Manning, this helped set the Giants up nicely in the redzone. Coleman had to wait a moment for the ball. He caught another curl route for a first down later in the game but then became relatively invisible. Coleman showed he has the talent to get open deep and could be a bigger factor next year but he has to prove his consistency in these games first before the Giants will trust him more.
2018 Week 15 vs TEN (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Corey Coleman just shouldn't be owned or started in any fantasy league right now. He had a nice catch on a slant against double coverage over the middle, doing well to secure the ball before a big hit in wet conditions. Coleman had a chance at a redzone touchdown pass but the pass was inaccurate and he fell over on the out route.
2017 Week 1 vs PIT (6 / 5 / 53 / 1 rec)
Coleman and rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer continue to show nice chemistry together. Coleman and Kizer hooked up for several completions, including an impressive back-shoulder catch in the third quarter. Coleman also had what would have been a big gain erased by a pass interference penalty against the defense. Coleman did notch a receiving touchdown in the fourth quarter on a short-slant from three yards out. He took a huge hit at the goal line but was able to hold on for the score.
2017 Week 2 vs BAL (7 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Coleman had a tough day. Despite being second on the team with seven targets, he wound up with just one catch. He then was forced to leave the game with 13:15 remaining after coming down hard on his right hand following an in-air collision with a Baltimore defender. There's concern that he may have broken his hand on the play. That would be the same hand that he broke in 2016, which cause him to miss six games. Coleman's only catch came in the first quarter on a short pass. He thought he had a catch in the second quarter but it was ruled incomplete. The Browns challenged the call on the field, but the play was upheld. He saw an end zone target from Kevin Hogan in the third quarter but the pass was overthrown. He was closely covered on the play.
2017 Week 11 vs JAX (11 / 6 / 80 / 0 rec)
Coleman made his first appearance on the field since breaking his hand back in Week 2. He looked excellent, leading the Browns in targets, receptions, and yardage against an elite Jaguars secondary. He did most of his damage on short and intermediate routes but his presence instantly injected some life into a Cleveland receiving corps that had been struggling throughout the season. Kizer looked Coleman's way early and often, which bodes well for Coleman's rest of season outlook, especially in less foreboding matchups.
2017 Week 12 vs CIN (8 / 3 / 64 / 0 rec)
Coleman got off to a nice start against the Bengals, hauling in a 44-yard pass on his team's second offensive possession. He burned the defender down the sideline and pulled in the easy grab. He saw another target in the second quarter but the pass was a bit high and was broken up by the defender. Later in the second quarter, Coleman caught a ball in the red zone, picking up eight yards to bring the Browns down to the Cincinnati three-yard line. The second half of the game wasn't as kind to Coleman as he committed a brutal drop in the end zone during the third quarter. Quarterback DeShone Kizer threw a perfect pass to Coleman in the middle of the end zone but Coleman bobbled the ball and allowed it to slip through his hands for an incompletion. It should have been a 29-yard receiving touchdown for him. Kizer later went back to Coleman in the third, overthrowing him on a deep target down the right sideline.
2017 Week 13 vs LAC (4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Whether it be due to the return of Josh Gordon or the tough matchup against an excellent Chargers secondary, Coleman was held without a catch for the first time in his short NFL career. The second-year receiver had a few chances to get on the stat sheet throughout the game but just couldn't do much. He actually caught a ball for no-gain during the first quarter but the play was nullified by an illegal formation penalty on the offense. He later drew a deep shot down the field but the ball was thrown too close to the sideline. In the fourth quarter, Coleman was able to help his offense by drawing a 24-yard pass interference penalty against the defense. Hopefully Coleman will eventually benefit from the return of Gordon as defenses shift their attention toward him.
2017 Week 14 vs GB (6 / 5 / 62 / 1 rec)
Coleman bounced back from a zero-catch game in Week 13, hauling in a two-yard touchdown and operating well opposite Josh Gordon. In the second quarter, he made a great diving catch on a low ball to pick up 20 yards. He followed that up with an 18-yard catch that brought the Browns down to the Green Bay seven yard line. Coleman was wide open as he found a soft spot in the Green Bay zone. His two-yard touchdown catch came in the third quarter. He was double covered but still managed to make the catch in the end zone before taking a big hit and holding onto the ball.
2017 Week 15 vs BAL (3 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Coleman was held to one or fewer catches for the second time in three games since Josh Gordon returned to the field. Coleman had a few chances to make plays but it is clear he's going to struggle to play anything more than a secondary role in an offense that has had trouble sustaining drives. One of Coleman's best contributions in this game didn't show up in the box score. In the first quarter he drew a pass interference flag which resulted in an 11-yard gain for the Browns. In the second quarter he was wide open on a short slant route but the pass was thrown way too high for him to make the grab. It wouldn't have mattered, though, as the play was nullified by an offensive holding penalty. His only catch came in the second quarter. He made a diving grab to set his team up for a field goal. In the fourth quarter it looked like he could have made another catch but he appeared to be tripped up by the defender before the ball got to him.
2017 Week 16 vs CHI (6 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
As has been the case in three of the four games with both Coleman and Josh Gordon on field, Coleman was an afterthought in the Cleveland offense. Coleman was mostly invisible on offense until the fourth quarter when he made his only catch. He also saw a target in the middle of the field which was thrown too high. Coleman was closely covered on the play and would have had to make a contested catch had the pass been on target.
2017 Week 17 vs PIT (6 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
It was another forgettable day for Coleman, who finished with just one catch. His lone grab was a great one as he dove for the ball to pick up 18 yards on a 3rd-and-17 play in the third quarter. A few of Coleman's missed targets can be blamed on DeShone Kizer's inaccuracy as Kizer missed him short and low at least twice. Unfortunately for Coleman, he committed a brutal drop at the end of the game on 4th-and-2. Kizer appeared to be sacked but he somehow managed to escape. Coleman had run a wheel route out of the backfield and was all by himself around the Pittsburgh 11-yard line. Kizer threw him a perfect pass that would have gone for a first down, but Coleman let the ball go through his hands. He appeared to turn his head to look upfield before securing the catch.
2016 Week 1 vs PHI (5 / 2 / 69 / 0 rec)
Coleman's first target resulted in a drop on what appeared to be a perfect pass. It looked like Coleman turned upfield to start running before fully securing the grab. Coleman's big splash play came on a deep pass in the second quarter where he was double covered with a third Eagles defender in the area as well. The pass was underthrown by Robert Griffin and Coleman was the only one who was able to come back on the ball to bring it in. Griffin later took a deep shot to Coleman in the fourth quarter down the right sideline, but the ball was overthrown.
2016 Week 2 vs BAL (8 / 5 / 104 / 2 rec)
Coleman had a big day, scoring twice in the first quarter. The first touchdown came on a 31-yard strike from Josh McCown which hit Coleman right in stride. The rookie did a nice job keeping his second foot in bounds after the catch. Coleman's second touchdown came on a screen to the left side where Coleman simple outraced Jimmy Smith to the end zone. He later hauled in a deep 47-yard pass where he showed good concentration and jumping ability to leap up and bring in the ball. Coleman could have had a bigger day, but he had a 17-yard catch nullified by an illegal touch penalty as the referees determined he went out of bounds and didn't reestablish himself inbounds before making the catch. Coleman's last catch came during the two-minute drill where he displayed some elusiveness to juke a defender before showing nice awareness to get out of bounds to stop the clock.
2016 Week 9 vs DAL (7 / 3 / 41 / 0 rec)
Coleman played well in his first game back from a broken hand which held him out since Week 2. He ran some really good routes, including one on his first catch where he stopped on a dime to turn around for the ball. The defender was not prepared for Coleman to stop so quickly and his momentum carried him forward, off the TV screen. Coleman later saw a deep pass near the end zone in the first quarter, but Cody Kessler overthrew him. Coleman was closely covered on the play, so it's hard to say whether he would have been able to make the catch had it been on target. Coleman showed his toughness on a second quarter catch over the middle of the field. He went up for the ball, knowing he was going to take a big hit. The big hit came and Coleman showed no problem holding onto the ball for a nice pickup. He saw one last end zone target at the end of the second half, but the pass was batted away by the defender before it reached Coleman.
2016 Week 10 vs BAL (5 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)
Coleman made two of his three catches on consecutive plays on the Browns' first drive. It appeared he was on his way to a big game, but he made just one catch the rest of the game. Coleman had a chance to add another catch to his line in the second quarter, but he dropped a ball on a slant route. He was closely covered and the pass was slightly behind him. Coleman wanted pass interference on the play but didn't get it. He did, however, draw a pass interference call later in the quarter as a defender jumped on his back as he was awaiting a pass about 15 yards downfield. The play set up the Browns' only score of the game a few plays later.
2016 Week 11 vs PIT (12 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Coleman led the Browns in targets on the afternoon, although many of the targets were uncatchable. He didn't help his cause by committing two drops in the game. His first drop was especially tough as the ball hit him right in the chest. Cody Kessler's lone interception on the day came on an underthrown pass meant for Coleman near the end zone. The rookie did show his toughness on a fourth quarter catch as he took a huge hit from Mike Mitchell but was able to hold onto the ball.
2016 Week 12 vs NYG (7 / 3 / 38 / 1 rec)
Coleman got a chance to show some of his explosiveness in this game. His first catch came on a bubble screen to the left. He got a great block from Joe Thomas around the line of scrimmage to turn the screen into a 13-yard gain. Coleman scored Cleveland's lone touchdown of the game on a beautiful route. He cut toward the middle of the field before making an out cut toward the left side of the end zone. Defender Janoris Jenkins bit hard on the cut toward the middle of the field, got spun around, and was unable to recover. Coleman was wide open for the 21-yard score. Watching the play certainly gave a glimpse of what Coleman is capable of doing with his quickness and explosiveness on the football field.
2016 Week 14 vs CIN (11 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Coleman had quarterback Robert Griffin's eye in this game as he was targeted a team-high 11 times. Unfortunately, many of those targets were uncatchable as Griffin was forcing the ball in Coleman's direction whether he was open or not. Coleman had two deep shots come his way on the team's first three drives. He was closely covered on both of them and was unable to reel either in. Coleman actually did a good job to prevent an interception on one of the attempts. His first catch came on a screen to the left in the third quarter. His second catch was a productive one as it went for 15 yards, plus he picked up a penalty on the defender, who brought him down with a horse collar tackle. That put Cleveland on Cincinnati's two yard line and led to them eventually scoring their only touchdown of the game. Coleman's final catch came on the last drive of the game.
2016 Week 15 vs BUF (4 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)
Coleman saw his first target on the Browns' second drive of the game. It came on a short screen pass to the left and went for eight yards. Coleman showed some nice athleticism on his second catch, making a defensive back miss before turning upfield for an 11-yard gain. It appeared he was grabbed by the facemask on the tackle and initially a flag was thrown on the play, but the referees decided he was grabbed by the shoulders, not the facemask. Coleman disagreed with the call. Coleman saw a deep shot on a Hail Mary at the end of the first half but he was double covered and unable to make the play. He was hardly heard from in the second half of the game.
2016 Week 16 vs SD (5 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Coleman had a slow game. The opportunity was there for more production, it just didn't come to fruition. The rookie receiver saw two deep shots but was unable to connect with Robert Griffin on either. The first deep shot came in the first quarter, but Coleman was tripped by a San Diego defender. No flag was thrown and the play looked promising had Coleman stayed on his feet. He saw another deep pass near the pylon in the second quarter. He was able to make the catch, but his momentum carried him out of bounds before he could get his feet down. In the fourth quarter he dropped a catchable ball before rebounding to make a big grab on third down to extend a drive.
2016 Week 17 vs PIT (9 / 5 / 40 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Coleman was quiet for most of the afternoon before coming to life in overtime. He made three of his catches in overtime and also drew two penalties on the Pittsburgh defense, putting the Browns in great position to score. Coleman's first touch of the game came on an end around in the first quarter. He took the rush for a nine-yard gain. He made a great leaping, reaching catch in overtime for an 11-yard gain. He followed that up by drawing a holding penalty on the defense for an automatic first down on 3rd-and-2. He made one catch in the red zone in overtime and drew a facemask penalty at the end of the play to put the Browns on Pittsburgh's two-yard line.
