WR Jamison Crowder - New York Jets
|5-8, 185||Born: 6-17-1993||College: Duke||Drafted: Round 4, pick 2015|
2019 Week 1 vs BUF (17 / 14 / 99 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
Along with LeVeon Bell, Jamison Crowder was the only real bright spot for the Jets offense. Crowder was by far the most targeted member of the team as well as the one with the most catches. Unfortunately he has the dubious honor now of being the first player in history to have 14 catches but under 100 yards. Crowder had a knack for getting open out of the slot, and even when he didn't, he did a fine job snagging the ball even while being blanketed by coverage.
2019 Week 2 vs CLE (6 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)
After a massive amount of targets in Week 1, Crowder disappeared in Week 2. He saw just one target in the first half, and like Robby Anderson, only saw real action when the playbook opened up with Luke Falk. What was most baffling about the day for Crowder is that his ability to find the open middle of the field on quick slants seems like it would have been an ideal way for the Jets to overcome a fearsome Browns pass rush. He did have one very nice catch in the second half when he used the cushion afforded by a zone defense to split two defenders, make a catch and gain some more yards before stumbling and getting tackled.
2019 Week 3 vs NE (5 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
Normally the Jets slot receiver, Crowder was outside more than usual Sunday, though to no real effect. He has seen his targets dip each week since Week 1, though that's largely because quarterback Sam Darnold has been out with mono. Still, the Jets don't seem to be scheming him open either, or trying to come up with new ways to get him the ball.
2019 Week 5 vs PHI (3 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)
Crowder is back in the slot, but that really didn't result in anything. He saw almost no passes as Luke Falk locked onto Demaryius Thomas and LeVeon Bell. Even when he got separation, Falk never saw him.
2019 Week 6 vs DAL (9 / 6 / 98 / 0 rec)
What a difference a quarterback makes. Sam Darnold has returned and Crowder is again his top target, with the receiver gashing the Dallas defense coming out of the slot. He and Robby Anderson were hard for the Cowboys to deal with when they were on the same side of the field as well, and more than once the secondary was behind covering one while focused on the other. Crowder isn't leaving the coverage behind with speed like Anderson, but continued to be more than capable of adding a few yards after the catch on average. He was also the target on Sam Darnold's interception and while it originally appeared to be a miscommunication between the two, it seems as though it was just a poor throw by the quarterback.
2019 Week 7 vs NE (5 / 4 / 26 / 0 rec)
Crowder was the only reliable player in the passing game, and even then he had a hard time breaking out of coverage. Even when he did, Darnold was under such duress that it was all he could do to get the ball out, which unfortunately went to the other team when he did. Crowder wasn't even very effective on shorter routes against a tough Pats defense.
2019 Week 8 vs JAX (5 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)
While everyone hoped the return of Sam Darnold would mean a rise in Jamison Crowder's prominence, that hasn't been the case. Crowder still seems to get open on a semi-regular basis but either Darnold isn't seeing him or the play is schemed away from Crowder. Given Crowder's ability on short-to-intermediate routes, you would think the Jets would use him as an outlet for Darnold when under pressure, but that's not happening. Whatever magic they had in Week 1, it's long gone.
2019 Week 9 vs MIA (9 / 8 / 83 / 1 rec)
This was the week where Crowder and Sam Darnold connected, doing so four times in the very first drive, which was capped off with a 12 yard touchdown pass to Crowder. On the play, Crowder lined up inside, and crossed underneath to the outside. The coverage appeared to get caught in the crowd, allowing the receiver to get wide open on his way into the end zone for a simple reception. He also made a very nice catch on a throw later in the quarter, when Darnold had to throw off his back foot, and Crowder reached back to make the catch. The two seem to be on the same page now, and that could mean good things for Crowder going forward.
2019 Week 10 vs NYG (6 / 5 / 81 / 1 rec)
While Crowder wasn't the most targeted Jet, it certainly looks like he is the one most frequently on the same page as quarterback Sam Darnold. The best moment for the two on Sunday was on Crowder's touchdown. On the play, Darnold did an excellent job of delivering the ball almost on sheer upper body motion in a tight pocket, and Crowder ran a tremendous drag route, splitting the zone defense up to get open. Darnold delivered the pass, and then Crowder suddenly stopped, making defenders react too late to stop him from changing direction and scoring.
2019 Week 11 vs WAS (8 / 5 / 76 / 1 rec)
Crowder continues to get targets from Sam Darnold and is clearly the receiver the second year quarterback trusts the most. Crowder's sharp route running and sure hands continually allow him to make the most of his chances, and he made a nice catch down the sideline for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. On the play, Crowder sped past the defender and Darnold dropped a nice pass right in Crowder's hands along the sideline, which the receiver then took the rest of the way to the end zone.
2019 Week 12 vs OAK (4 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Crowder got a lot of attention from the Oakland Raiders and was one of the few players they seemed able to contain. Once Sam Darnold saw Crowder was not as open as he often is, he merely found other targets.
2019 Week 13 vs CIN (9 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)
Crowder was targeted the second most frequently in the offense, but struggled to reel the ball in. The potential was there, but he and Darnold were never really quite on the same page, and the Bengals did a good job of limiting Crowder's ability to get free on intermediate routes. With Robby Anderson playing well, the Jets don't need to keep forcing the ball to Crowder like they did this week.
2019 Week 14 vs MIA (7 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Crowder continues to get targets but he and quarterback Sam Darnold just don't seem to be on the same page anymore, and so are connecting on less then half of their attempts. That, coupled with the re-emergence of Robby Anderson has made Crowder an afterthought in this offense.
2019 Week 15 vs BAL (11 / 6 / 90 / 2 rec)
Jamison Crowder didn't see a target until the end of the first quarter, but after that he was off to the races. He scored his first touchdown with a toe tap catch in the end zone, as quarterback Sam Darnold put it where only Crowder was grabbing it. On the second touchdown, Darnold was under duress, but stayed calm and moved up in the pocket until Crowder could break free. Then Crowder made a nice catch, slipped a tackle and sauntered into the end zone. The most impressive thing about Crowder's game against Baltimore was his ability after the catch. Crowder continually make tacklers miss, accelerated into the open field and gained extra yards. More than once he made a move that resulted in some nice bonus yards for his team. Crowder did a lot of different things this game, and ran routes at all levels, showing the versatility he brings to the Jets offense on each catch.
2019 Week 16 vs PIT (8 / 4 / 60 / 0 rec)
Crowder led the team in yardage, but he and Sam Darnold are struggling to be on the same page. He also had a massive drop which stalled out a drive in the second quarter, one he should have reeled in. He did have two longer plays -- a 17-yard catch on a nice out route and a 15-yard play where he got wide open across the middle and was able to turn upfield for a big gain -- and recovered a Sam Darnold fumble on the opening drive.
2019 Week 17 vs BUF (10 / 8 / 66 / 1 rec)
If nothing else looks good in the Jets offense, at least the chemistry between Jamison Crowder and Sam Darold continues to. Crowder was the target on Darnold's interception, a ball thrown just behind the receiver which allowed the defender to disrupt the pass, resulting in a tip by Crowder a pick by the defense. However the two hooked up in the fourth quarter on a 2nd and 1 at the goal line. On the play, Crowder ran a short slant and Darnold delivered the ball a little high, but Crowder easily reached up and caught it.
2018 Week 1 vs ARI (4 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder wasn't utilized as much in this game. He had three catches for thirty-two yards and was targeted just four times. Jamison's production will be inconsistent throughout the year if Jordan Reed and Chris Thompson are healthy. Jamison is Washington's slot receiver which means he runs most of his routes over the middle of the field. This is problematic considering Jordan dominates the targets in this area.
2018 Week 2 vs IND (4 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec, 2 / 29 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder was extremely quiet in this game outside of a twenty-nine-yard reverse. Jamison had two catches, but he struggles to consistently produce with Jordan Reed's presence.
2018 Week 3 vs GB (4 / 4 / 39 / 1 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder caught all four of his targets for thirty-nine yards. Alex found him for a ten yard slant in the redzone as well to record his first touchdown of the year. Jamison had his most productive day of the year as he became more involved throughout this game. The passing game was conservative today but it was encouraging to see Jamison get opportunities. His weekly productivity can be highly volatile as the receiving core doesn't have a definitive 'go-to' guy.
2018 Week 5 vs NO (8 / 4 / 55 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder had one of his more productive games as he caught four passes for fifty-five yards. However, he was targeted eight times and struggled to get separation on a few potential catches. Alex was off target as well, but Jamison could have had a bigger night if played better. Jamison is one of Washington's more reliable receivers, so this was a down game for him considering the amount of targets he received.
2018 Week 13 vs PHI (4 / 4 / 36 / 0 rec, 1 / -5 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder made it back from injury to face the Eagles. He caught all four of his targets for thirty-six yards. He didn't make much impact with his receptions but showed that he is healthy and ready to contribute. As the slot guy in the Washington offense he could be really busy down the stretch as the offense is simplified.
2018 Week 14 vs NYG (7 / 2 / 87 / 1 rec)
Jamison Crowder scored one of the two touchdowns for Washington in this game. Jamison took a drag route seventy-eight yards for the score. He had seven targets in this game and only came down with two. The offense was horrendous all day and the inefficiencies for everyone was on display.
2018 Week 15 vs JAX (4 / 4 / 46 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder was Josh's favorite target in this game as he tallied four receptions for forty-six yards. He caught all four of his targets but the offense was so vanilla versus the Jags that Crowder didn't really have a chance to do more. He hasn't had a major impact this season but Josh looked comfortable targeting him over the middle of the field.
2018 Week 16 vs TEN (7 / 5 / 78 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder was the most productive receiver for Washington as he caught five of his seven targets. They were without Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis so there were opportunities for Jamison to make plays in the middle of the field. Josh often found him for short passes to keep the chains moving. Three of Jamison's passes were converted for first downs.
2018 Week 17 vs PHI (8 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Crowder was yet another Washington skill position player to have no impact in the blowout loss to finish the season. Crowder logged a quick hitch reception to find the box score, but his best opportunity was getting separation deep only to have Josh Johnson hang a pass and nearly throw an interception. Crowder enters the offseason as a free agent coming off a non-descript year and a slot-centric profile at his productive peak.
2017 Week 1 vs PHI (7 / 3 / 14 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder was hampered by a hip injury and that might explain his three-reception day. He also had a fumble which compounded his quiet game. He was in and out of the lineup throughout the game which showed his isn't fully healthy. Kirk threw an awful interception off his back foot looking for Jamison in the end zone. The ball sailed over his head and he had no chance at making a play on the ball. Jamison's entire game is built on quickness and change of direction in the slot. It will be interesting to see how effective he can be moving forward.
2017 Week 2 vs LAR (5 / 4 / 47 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder benefitted from a ball control offense that highlighted a short passing game. He had four receptions and looked a little healthier this week. He also played more snaps and had a twenty one yard reception that showed the extreme quickness he brings to Washington's offense. As he gets healthier he should continue to be a bigger part of this offensive attack.
2017 Week 3 vs OAK (6 / 6 / 52 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder was more involved in this game as he recorded six catches. He didn't accumulate much yardage but he looked healthy and didn't rotate out of the game often. Crowder's biggest play of the day was a thirty yard pass in which he was able to use his supreme after the catch ability to get down field. His health is trending up and it is a positive sign to see him involved in the passing game more often this week.
2017 Week 6 vs SF (5 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec, 1 / 11 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder put up another silent game as he tries to work himself back into form. It was believed that he should be healthy coming out of the bye and ready to roll but he was still unable to get on track. Gruden says that he wants to get Jamison more involved but that didn't happen today. It is a major concern that Jamison was ineffective this game considering how suspect the 49ers' secondary has been all season. He only had three receptions for fifteen yards. He was often single covered but Kirk didn't target Jamison much at all in this game.
2017 Week 7 vs PHI (6 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder is still struggling to get going in this offense. Jamison's night started off fast as he caught a twenty yard reception, but he only recorded one more reception following his fast start. It seems as if Vernon Davis has taken some of his looks over the middle of the field where Jamison mainly operates. His role has clearly took a step back this year.
2017 Week 8 vs DAL (13 / 9 / 123 / 0 rec, 2 / 12 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder finally had a breakout game as he led the team with nine catches and over one hundred yards receiving. His longest play went for forty-one yards on a catch and run demonstrating his 'YAC' ability. Being able to get open quickly for short passes in a rain storm was very valuable for him and Kirk as there wasn't much time to go downfield. Hopefully this is the start to a great second half for him as he has been underwhelming the majority of this year. Now that Jordan Reed is out he may become a bigger part of the passing game.
2017 Week 10 vs MIN (11 / 4 / 76 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder looks to be hitting his stride in the 2nd half of the season. Coming off injury, he continued his strong play as he paced the Redskins receivers in reception yards. He only had four receptions but his big play ability after the catch seems to be back. Washington has made more of an effort to get him involved with Jordan Reed unavailable. Jamison hasn't had to worry about Jordan soaking up targets over the middle of the field lately. He had a thirty-six yard reception which was his longest reception and demonstrated his sudden burst as he gained separation at the top of his route. Jamison was targeted an additional two times but his production and activity level is trending up. This was a tough matchup and he still found way to be a factor. That is an encouraging sign going into the 2nd half of the season.
2017 Week 11 vs NO (8 / 7 / 72 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder led the team in receptions with seven against the Saints. Often running safety valve type routes, Jamison was able to get open and quickly get up field after the catch. Jamison became even more important in the passing game when Chris Thompson went down. His longest catch went for nineteen yards and Kirk leaned on him heavily in the fourth quarter. Jamison has come alive in the last few weeks and Kirk has reestablished their connection. Jamison's role should grow even more moving forward if Jordan Reed doesn't return soon.
2017 Week 12 vs NYG (10 / 7 / 141 / 1 rec)
Jamison Crowder has become the focal point of the passing game late in the season. He led Washington in receptions and yardage for the second consecutive game. He had a quiet first half versus the Giants, but in the third quarter he started to heat up and beat coverage repeatedly for chunk gains. His longest reception went for thirty-eight yards. He also had one of the two touchdowns scored in this game for Washington. The touchdown was a fifteen-yard reception of the middle of the field in which he beat zone coverage. Jamison's ability to gain separation in coverage made it comfortable for Kirk to find him. Jamison also had a clutch reception late in the fourth quarter that help set him the game winning touchdown. As it becomes clearer each game that Jordan Reed isn't coming back, Crowder has taken on a prominent role in the Washington passing game.
2017 Week 13 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 67 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder was tied for the most receptions in this game. He biggest play came on a reception he took thirty-three yards up field as he bailed out Kirk Cousins. He was relatively quiet in this game as Washington's offense was stagnant majority of the evening. Jamison was still heavily targeted which illustrates his importance moving forward.
2017 Week 14 vs LAC (6 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder tallied three catches for thirty-four yards but wasn't a heavy contributor. He has been highly productive the last few weeks but in this game he was held in check. His longest reception went for eighteen yards but the splash plays were nonexistent for Jamison today.
2017 Week 15 vs ARI (7 / 5 / 55 / 1 rec)
Jamison Crowder got back on track this week as the leading receiver for Washington. He led the team in receptions and yards as he scored one of only two touchdowns on the day. Jamison's score came on the team's first possession as Kirk found him on a crossing route in the end zone. Crowder's longest completion went for twenty-four yards but the offense was fairly inconsistent throughout the game. Crowder had an opportunity to have a bigger day but Kirk struggled to connect with Jamison on a few inaccurate passes.
2017 Week 16 vs DEN (4 / 4 / 47 / 1 rec)
Jamison Crowder came into this game less than full health but was still able to make an impact. He tallied four receptions for forty-seven yards but was also able to score a touchdown. His touchdown came on a fifteen yard catch across the middle as he beat man coverage off the line of scrimmage. He was tied for the game high in receptions but came off the field a little more than usual because of the injury.
2017 Week 17 vs NYG (7 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder wasn't able to get going in this game as he only recorded three catches. It seems he would have been more involved in the short passing game but the Giants took him away as they understood he'd be key considering the conditions. Jamison ended the year on a roll but this game he was held in check and found it difficult to find opportunities.
2016 Week 1 vs PIT (10 / 6 / 58 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder was another guy who benefitted from the high volume passing game that Kirk orchestrated. He had six catches but nothing he did made much difference in the momentum of the game. Crowder is a good slot receiver that has the ability to make people miss but he couldn't find any daylight in this game.
2016 Week 2 vs DAL (8 / 6 / 39 / 1 rec)
Jamison Crowder one of his more productive days as he recorded six catches and also had a touchdown. His ability to find openings in the zone and beat slot man coverage gave Kirk a safety valve while moving the chains. Jamison's touchdown grab was fantastic as he went up and caught it at the high point in coverage to make a contested catch in the red zone. Jamison's biggest gain only went for eleven yards but he found a nice rhythm with Kirk throughout the game.
2016 Week 3 vs NYG (7 / 4 / 78 / 1 rec)
Jamison Crowder is starting to become a real factor in the Washington passing attack. He had another productive day as he had four catches but continuing to be a threat in the slot. Jamison's biggest play came early in the third quarter as he took a bubble screen fifty-five yards for a touchdown. His dynamic ability to elude defenders in tight spaces has become pivotal in Kirk's reads. He is somewhat of a safety valve over the middle of the field as teams continue to find ways limiting Jordan Reed.
2016 Week 4 vs CLE (3 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder wasn't as involved in this game as he only recorded two catches on the day. One of his catches went for fifteen yards but his opportunities as a third receiver will fluctuate weekly.
2016 Week 5 vs BAL (3 / 3 / 35 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder only had three catches on the day and none were as explosive as some the last few weeks. His longest gain went for twenty-three yards but he found the end zone on a eighty-five yard punt return. Crowder continues to find ways to make an impact for Washington and has become extremely valuable to their attack.
2016 Week 6 vs PHI (4 / 3 / 52 / 1 rec, 1 / -9 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder seemed to be primed for a busy day in the slot due to the absence of Jordan Reed. That wasn't the case as he only tallied three catches. He did score a touchdown on the day as he ran an out-and-up route from the slot. It was a twenty yard score and he showed the speed that makes him so dangerous in this offense. Jamison was the projected safety valve for this game considering the fact that the Eagles would blitz a ton but that duty went to Pierre Garcon.
2016 Week 7 vs DET (9 / 7 / 108 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder had one of his more productive days against Detroit as he tied for most catches in Washington's receiving group with seven. Jamison basically played the role of Jordan Reed as Kirk constantly found him as the safety valve in the defense. Jamison did a great job settling down in zones and reading hot routes to make himself available throughout the game. Jamison also did a great job after the catch often eluding defenders as well. His longest catch went for twenty-six yards and he made a couple of big catches in the fourth quarter to keep drives alive. Jamison won't always have days like this as the third option in the passing game but he is certainly capable due to his explosive ability in the slot.
2016 Week 8 vs CIN (13 / 9 / 107 / 1 rec)
Jamison Crowder was very involved in the game plan this week as he totaled nine catches. It was interesting to see how involved he became despite the fact Jordan Reed was back from injury. This game was tailored made for his role as he was often an outlet to the constant pressure Kirk faced all game. His ability to turn short throws into long gains was vital in Washington's attack. Jamison's longest reception went for thirty-three yards and he caught the one of the two touchdown receptions on the day. He was able to elude two defenders on his way to the end zone which shows his elusive ability in the open field. Jamison's productivity fluctuates weekly but he seems to find ways to make plays. It is encouraging to see he was still able to stay involved in the game despite Jordan's return. He was also the beneficiary of DeSean Jackson's exit from the game as well. The Bengals don't have a slot corner that can keep up with Jamison and Washington knew that.
2016 Week 10 vs MIN (6 / 4 / 37 / 1 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder received extra attention in this game due to his increased production. Therefore, the Vikings made a point to slow him down especially knowing DeSean wasn't active for this game. He had four catches and managed to score a touchdown in the second quarter. Beyond the touchdown he was held in check most of this game.
2016 Week 11 vs GB (3 / 3 / 102 / 1 rec)
Jamison Crowder only had three catches in this game but totaled over a hundred yards. This is clear indication of how explosive he can be in the Washington passing attack. In the fourth quarter Kirk found Jamison practically wide open on a fifty three yard reception in the end zone. Jamison's explosive ability after the catch allows for long gains and this game showed that as well. He doesn't need many touches to make an impact and today was great for him. However this is also a demonstration of how up and down his productivity can be due to limited volume in opportunities.
2016 Week 12 vs DAL (10 / 8 / 88 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder had a fairly productive game as he had eight receptions. He was second on the team in receptions with his longest going for thirty eight yards. Jamison was busy all game as the frequent short yardage receiver out of the slot for Kirk. Jamison displayed exceptional ability to break tackles and gain yardage that wasn't there due to his elusive ability after the catch. He almost sprung free twice for potential touchdowns before being tripped up by a diving defender. He has been the most productive receiver for Washington of late and Kirk clearly trusts him and his ability to get open.
2016 Week 13 vs ARI (8 / 3 / 42 / 1 rec)
Jamison Crowder only had three catches in this game but did manage a touchdown. The catch came on a seam route from about twenty-six yards out. Jamison has been the most productive receiver for Washington over the last month. The absence of stud defensive back Tyrann Mathieu had many believing Jamison would have a bigger day but he was somewhat held in check.
2016 Week 14 vs PHI (5 / 2 / 37 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder had his quietest game in weeks as he only had two receptions. The Eagles paid closer attention to him but this game was also sloppy as Kirk only completed fourteen passes. This game wasn't passing heavy nor did Washington have many possessions so Jamison wasn't able to get on track.
2016 Week 15 vs CAR (5 / 4 / 24 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder had his least productive day in over a month versus Carolina. He had four receptions but the total yardage was lower than normal. Jamison is known for his extreme ability after the catch but the Panthers did as good job rallying to the ball when he caught passes. Jamison is an explosive slot receiver that relies on explosive plays but this game didn't present those opportunities.
2016 Week 16 vs CHI (2 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon dominating the high-efficiency, low-volume Washington pass game this week, Crowder was the odd man out of the receiver corps. The slot maven saw just two targets. One featured a poor throw from Kirk Cousins on a deep out route on three down, a bread-and-butter play for Crowder to convert and move the chains. It was a rare stalled drive for Washington this week. Two targets marked Crowder's lowest total of the season and now he has gone a month since eclipsing 50 yards in a game.
2016 Week 17 vs NYG (3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder didn't have much impact in this game as he totaled two receptions for less than twenty yards. Jamison had a tough matchup trying to generate offense facing off against Leon Hall and Domonique Rogers-Cromartie. Jamison's ability to elude defenders after the catch is what makes him so lethal but Kirk had trouble locating him all game.
2015 Week 3 vs NYG (6 / 6 / 45 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder was relatively busy in this game as he caught 6 passes. These were mainly short throws but he did manage to catch a 15 yarder that kept a drive going. It isn't clear if he has taken over the #2 wide receiver spot but it is something to monitor moving forward.
2015 Week 4 vs PHI (12 / 7 / 65 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder got the start opposite Pierre Garcon as he has seemingly moved ahead of Andre Roberts on the depth chart. Roberts was a healthy scratch for this game and it could be permanent. Crowder was busy in the passing game today as he hauled in 7 catches which is the most for him in this early season. Crowder also had the most receiving yards in this game as his longest went for 22 yards. Kirk seems to have a solid connection with Crowder as he targeted him deep several times. Most notably was the ěcould have beenî touchdown that was ruled no good because he stepped out of bounds. Crowder's speed and suddenness in coverage was on display all afternoon as he had no issues gaining separation from defenders.
2015 Week 5 vs ATL (8 / 8 / 87 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Jamison Crowder is emerging in this offense as one of Kirk's favorite targets. It can also be said that his role was seemingly expanded in this game due to the absence of Jordan Reed. However, he played a significant role last week as well. Crowder led the team in targets and catches at 8. His tight space quickness and elusiveness makes it easy for Kirk to find him getting separation. It should be noted that the team is finding ways to manufacture touches for him as they gave him a jet sweep play while also implementing screen passes. He may be their most explosive receiver aside from Desean Jackson. Crowder caught 2 screen passes as one went for 12 yards and the other was over 20. He has brought a spark to this offense that is dearly needed so expect to see more of him in the Redskins attack.
2015 Week 6 vs NYJ (9 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder was the most productive receiver in this game, but considering the underwhelming play of the quarterback it didn't matter. Crowder's four catches were mainly wide receiver screens and he continues to show his big play ability. He often made something out of nothing with his quickness and suddenness with the ball in his hands. His biggest play went for 18 yards but his imprint on the game was minimal.
2015 Week 7 vs TB (5 / 5 / 48 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder made his usual assortment of plays in this game as he had 5 catches along with Garcon. None of his catches were greater than the 18 yard pass he caught that put Washington down to the 6 yard line to set up the game winning touchdown. Crowder did most of his damage on short passes where he uses his elusiveness to gain yards after the catch.
2015 Week 9 vs NE (8 / 6 / 50 / 0 rec)
Jamison Crowder led Washington in catches with 6 but that was mainly due to the quick passing game. Crowder got open underneath often in this game as the Patriots tried to take away Jordan Reed in the intermediate area of the field. Crowder's longest play was 16 yards but it didn't provide much impact.
2015 Week 10 vs NO (5 / 4 / 60 / 1 rec)
Jamison Crowder seemingly has had his role increase in Washington's offense weekly. He had 4 catches in this game and each pass was short to take advantage of his ěrun after catchî ability. Crowder had an impressive 31 yard catch that demonstrated exactly what he does well. Jamison's touchdown came on a slant at the goal line in which he set his defender up nicely before cutting inside to get open. He doesn't get many red zone looks so this was interesting to see and shows they are looking to get him more involved.
2015 Week 11 vs CAR (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

2015 Week 13 vs DAL (4 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)

2015 Week 14 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)

Jamison Crowder had 2 catches but they made minimal impact on this game. He is low on the totem pole with everyone in the receiving core now healthy.
2015 Week 17 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 109 / 1 rec)
Jamison Crowder was the busiest of all receivers in this game and also the most productive. He had five catches but went over 100 yards on the day. Jamison's first catch went for 44 yards on a screen pass in which he almost scored before being tackled at the 1 yard line. He also found the end zone as well on the 2nd possession of the game as Kirk Cousins continues to be on a good groove. Jamison played extensively in this game as the starters were out after the first quarter. That gave him a chance for a few additional looks even though Washington was run dominant majority of this game.
