WR Kevin Curtis - Kansas City Chiefs
|5-11, 186||Born: 7-17-1978||College: Utah State||Drafted: Round 3, pick 0|
2010 Week 15 vs BUF (2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
They went to him a long pass play that fell incomplete and Miami tried to get Curtis the ball on a reverse. Curtis looked pretty rusty and has not seen action in over a year. His story is gut wrenching as he battled cancer after he rehabbed form a knee injury last season. Proud to see him in the game but fantasy wise he offers very little right now serving as Brian Hartline's replacement.
2010 Week 18 vs BAL (2 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
Curtis had just one very forgettable reception, but it could have been so much more. He was seen on one replay streaking downfield wide open and showing a rare second gear on a post pattern. Unfortunately, Cassel was in the process of rolling out to his right and trying to avoid a pass rush and didn't have much of a chance to find him.
2009 Week 1 vs CAR (4 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)
Curtis had a quiet day with just five balls heading in his direction, but odds are that he is not as healthy as he could be. Curtis never attempted to truly stretch the field and even dropped an easy 15-20 yard pass from McNabb early in the contest. Curtis was on the field as the second starting wideout opposite of DeSean Jackson, but the timing between him and McNabb was either a little off or Curtis was not quite up to the caliber that usually makes him a deep threat and explosive receiver after the catch.
2009 Week 2 vs NO (9 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec)
Curtis looked gimpy in Week 2, struggling to make cuts and turn upfield on a knee that is less than full strength. Unless the ball hit him in space, Curtis could not go and get separation and make a play on the ball, which cost Kevin Kolb several completions. Curtis has one more game before the bye comes in Week 4, so the Eagles may have to evaluate the game tape and give Curtis extra rest as he is not the explosive and speedy wideout that he is when he is healthy.
2009 Week 15 vs SF (2 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Kevin Curtis returned to action for the first time since Week 2, and the Eagles were certainly happy to have him back after the recent injury to Jeremy Maclin. Curtis had just two passes thrown his way, both in the second quarter, and he reeled in one of them for a short gain. The bigger news is his being on the field at all, which could be a nice boost to an already potent Philadelphia passing attack.
2008 Week 8 vs ATL (6 / 3 / 45 / 0 rec)
This was his first game of the year after returning from a sports hernia. Curtis the good route runner was astute at finding the soft spots in the Falcons defense. His big play of the game went for 25 yards.
2008 Week 9 vs SEA (11 / 6 / 83 / 0 rec)
Curtis, still likely trying to get back into starting WR rhythm, started slow. He dropped the first two passes that QB Donovan McNabb tossed his way, and then appeared to injure his wrist on the third (another incompletion that was close to being intercepted.) As the game moved into the second quarter, however, Curtis became much more sure-handed and narrowly lost out on a TD reception in the final minute of the first half as he was pushed out of bounds at the one yard line after a 26 yard gain. While that play would be his longest on the day, Curtis continued to be productive in the second half, and appeared more and more to be settling back into his featured role in the Eagles' passing attack.
2008 Week 10 vs NYG (7 / 3 / 25 / 1 rec)
Curtis caught a two yard touchdown pass that was his first scoring reception of the year. His long reception of 17 yards came on the Eagles final drive and set Philadelphia up at their own 31 yard line.
2008 Week 11 vs CIN (12 / 7 / 64 / 0 rec)
Even though QB Donovan McNabb spread the ball around today, completing passes to ten different receivers, the sheer volume of McNabb's pass attempts still allowed Curtis to see 13 targets. Unfortunately, Curtis was unable to turn those targets into big plays. While he led the Eagles with seven receptions, none were for more than 14 yards and he seemed to play the role of possession receiver all day long, allowing fellow WRs DeSean Jackson and Hank Baskett to take over as the deep targets.
2008 Week 12 vs BAL (7 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
During the first half, while QB Donovan McNabb was still under center, Curtis continued to be the most targeted Eagles receiver, as he has been in recent weeks. Unfortunately, McNabb was so off on his throws that these targets only translated into two receptions. In the second half, once Kevin Kolb took over at QB, Curtis saw very little attention -- including no passes thrown his way in the fourth quarter when the Eagles were airing it out on almost every play.
2008 Week 13 vs ARI (9 / 5 / 59 / 0 rec)
The Philadelphia passing attack was designed to spread the ball around to several different targets rather than just one guy, so Curtis's stat line looks very similar to his Philadelphia teammates. He had one big play where he caught a pass in the flat, was squared up by Ralph Brown, and proceeded to fake Brown out of his shoes for an extra 15 yards or so.
2008 Week 14 vs NYG (4 / 2 / 42 / 0 rec)
Curtis was having a solid and productive day before leaving the game after suffering a concussion early in second quarter. In his limited action he was a main threat in the passing game, seeing four balls come his way, and catching half of them for 42 yards.
2008 Week 15 vs CLE (5 / 4 / 45 / 1 rec)
Curtis caught the first Eagles touchdown on the night on a 14 yard pass from Donovan McNabb. Curtis was a beneficiary of single coverage on his route and went up and made a play on the ball for the score.
2008 Week 17 vs DAL (2 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Curtis had only one catch for 15 yards.
2008 Week 18 vs MIN (7 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)
Curtis was targeted a team high seven times and finished with four receptions for 49 yards. Three of his targets came on third downs, and one third down pass thrown his way was picked off by Minnesota. Three of his receptions netted Philadelphia first downs.
2008 Week 19 vs NYG (8 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)
Curtis was targeted a team leading ten times, but finished with just four receptions for 40 yards. He was targeted twice on third downs and twice on deep routes, had one red zone target and a pass intended for him was picked off by the Giants on a tipped ball at the line of scrimmage.
2008 Week 20 vs ARI (7 / 4 / 122 / 0 rec)
With the Eagles facing a third and eighteen Curtis made a tough catch on a 50 yard pass which led to the first Philadelphia touchdown. He averaged over 30 yards per receptions as he caught four passes for 122 yards.
2007 Week 1 vs GB (5 / 2 / 53 / 0 rec)
Curtis was targeted most often by McNabb when Curtis was down the field. They connected on a 37 yard play and a 16 yard play, the other three times he was covered well.
2007 Week 2 vs WAS (11 / 4 / 28 / 0 rec)
Curtis had a team high ten targets but only had four catches. He only had two catches for 14 yards in the first half but, QB Donovan McNabb's inaccuracy in the first half hurt him and his fellow wide receivers yardage in the first half. For there part, Curtis and the other receivers did not do a good job of getting separation from defenders throughout the game. Curtis had a great chance to score with less then two minutes left with the ball on the Redskins nine, but McNabb led him too far and missed the open receiver. On the Eagles last play of the game, Curtis had the ball knocked loose on a big hit by rookie S LaRon Landry on the Washington five yard line on what was a fourth down play.
2007 Week 3 vs DET (14 / 11 / 221 / 3 rec)
Curtis is developing into one of QB Donovan McNabb's favorite receivers and he used his exceptional speed to make several big plays in this game. He caught two passes for 27 yards on Philadelphia's first drive of the game, and helped set up a touchdown run by RB Brian Westbrook. His biggest play of the game came toward the end of the first quarter when he burned the defender on a double move and got open deep down the field. McNabb hit him a perfect strike and he scored on what was a 68 yard completion. Curtis came back in the next drive and added two more passes for 31 yards. He had a huge first quarter with six catches for 132 yards and one touchdown. Curtis was just getting started in the first half as McNabb hit on a perfectly thrown pass on a 12 yard pass to the back left corner of the end zone. Curtis then got wide open again down the left side line for a 43 yard touchdown midway through the second quarter. He finished the half with nine catches for 205 yards and three touchdowns. Curtis had only two more catches for 16 yards in the second half, but the game was well out of hand and Philadelphia stopping throwing it. He and Westbrook were clearly McNabb's favorite targets and he finished with a game high 14 targets.
2007 Week 4 vs NYG (4 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)
Curtis was not able to create separation this week like he did last week versus the Lions. It seemed like the safety was often shaded to his side of the field. Curtis had one bad drop in the game which stopped the first drive for the Eagles.
2007 Week 6 vs NYJ (8 / 5 / 121 / 1 rec)
Curtis shared a team high in targets, seeing eight balls go his way and catching five of them for 121 total yards and a touchdown. His only touchdown, which proved to be the only offensive score of the game, was a pretty catch and run in which he broke a tackle and flat outran the Jets secondary.
2007 Week 7 vs CHI (7 / 5 / 62 / 0 rec)
Curtis was targeted eight times in the game, catching five passes for 62 yards.
2007 Week 8 vs MIN (6 / 3 / 76 / 0 rec)
Curtis hauled in three of the six balls thrown his way. His biggest reception of the game was a quick slant, beating the coverage of Cedric Griffin and racing 33 yards before being tackled. Curtis also turned in the catch of the game on a pattern up the sideline. The ball was slightly overthrown, and Curtis appeared to reach over the defenders should to break up what should have been an interception, but when he pulled his arm back, took the ball away and made a fantastic one handed reception. He also could have had another long reception, but was obviously interfered with by the defender.
2007 Week 9 vs DAL (10 / 5 / 51 / 0 rec)
Kevin Curtis caught five passes for 51 yards, on eight targets. Donovan McNabb didn't try utilizing Curtis' deep speed, and was only targeted on short and intermediate plays, generally to the left side of the field. He did not have any deep targets.
2007 Week 10 vs WAS (6 / 3 / 20 / 0 rec)
Curtis was the unfortunate recipient of a disproportionate amount of McNabb's poor throws. It was his lowest output of the 2007 season to date.
2007 Week 11 vs MIA (9 / 5 / 69 / 0 rec)
Curtis' first catch of the game would be a 23 yard catch in the first quarter. It would also be his longest catch of the game. He would get a first down on a 14 yard reception on the Eagles' first drive of the third quarter. Curtis would catch a 17 pass later on in that same drive to help set up Philadelphia's first touchdown. He would add two other short catches in the game.
2007 Week 12 vs NE (9 / 5 / 71 / 0 rec)
Curtis was targeted by A. J. Feeley on a number of deeper throws, but most of those passes fell incomplete. His longest reception of the game went for 19 yards and he was the intended receiver in the end zone on Feeley's second interception. Four of Curtis' five catches went for first downs.
2007 Week 13 vs SEA (12 / 6 / 111 / 1 rec)
Curtis was the only receiver who was able to make plays. He started out great by taking his first target for a 47 yard gain, slipping tackles on his way to the Seattle 14. Later in the half he used his body to shield the defender on his 24 yard touchdown reception. He closed the first half by drawing a pass interference penalty in the end zone to set up a first and goal situation on the one yards line. He picked up where he left off in the second half by getting wide open on a 25 yard reception and making a sliding catch to set up a third and two play in the fourth quarter. He was also the victim of poor decision making by Feeley, as it seemed like the quarterback was trying to force the ball to him, even when he was double covered.
2007 Week 14 vs NYG (4 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)
Curtis was only able to see four balls come his way as he brought in three of them for 26 yards. He was a clear third option behind receiver Reggie Brown and running back Brian Westbrook
2007 Week 15 vs DAL (9 / 5 / 40 / 0 rec)
Kevin Curtis caught five passes for 40 yards on nine targets. Curtis was targeted on a deep pattern down the left sideline once in the third quarter, but otherwise was only used on short and intermediate routes with the Eagles offense not looking down the field very often.
2007 Week 16 vs NO (9 / 6 / 78 / 1 rec)
Curtis draws the main attention of the defense as the top receiver in the Eagle lineup. His reception percentage is not great, but that is more the result of him being the deep target and not a main indicator of his receiving ability. He did have two potential catches that did not happen due to one of them being ruled out of bounds and him juggling the other one.
2007 Week 17 vs BUF (12 / 7 / 62 / 0 rec)
The free agent from St. Louis led all receivers with seven balls for 62 yards and has become a McNabb favorite. For the second week in a row he alertly recovered a teammates' fumble in the end zone for a Philadelphia touchdown.
2006 Week 1 vs DEN (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Curtis had two targets but did not have a reception in the game.
2006 Week 2 vs SF (6 / 3 / 13 / 0 rec)
Brought in on passing downs as a slot receiver, Curtis' longest gain was six yards.
2006 Week 3 vs ARI (1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
In the Mike Martz offense, the third wide receiver is a terrific option in the passing game. In this offense, Kevin Curtis has seen his opportunities become very limited. This game was no exception, as he caught a short pass and was quickly tackled on his only target of the game.
2006 Week 4 vs DET (2 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
Curtis caught two passes in the first half for a total of 25 yards.
2006 Week 5 vs GB (5 / 3 / 21 / 1 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
Three of Curtis' five targets came in the red zone. He finished with 21 yards on three catches and a touchdown.
2006 Week 6 vs SEA (3 / 2 / 52 / 0 rec)
Curtis caught half of his four targets for 52 yards.
2006 Week 8 vs SD (8 / 7 / 79 / 1 rec)
Curtis was targeted early and often, including a first quarter fourth down pass attempt that the receiver converted. It's clear that Bulger has just as much faith in Curtis making plays as just about anyone else on the field, and that was evident in him getting the looks in several key situations. His targets were spread out fairly evenly throughout the game, and even though he scored his touchdown during "garbage time", he actually was putting up solid stats prior to that. About his only blemish was his inability to hang onto what would have been a 40 yard pass from Marc Bulger to about the San Diego ten yard line. Curtis dove for the ball and appeared to haul it in, but upon hitting the turf the football came loose for an incompletion. The Rams challenged the call, but the ruling was still no catch.
2006 Week 9 vs KC (9 / 7 / 59 / 1 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Curtis was the most targeted receiver for the Rams, getting nine chances against the Chiefs. Curtis caught seven of them for 59 yards, highlighted by a two yard "dart" pattern catch for a touchdown in the third quarter. Curtis caught his first six targets before two fell incomplete late in the game. The first incompletion was another end zone target, whereas the second came in the final ten seconds of the game. Curtis was drilled after catching his longest pass of 23 yards as the game ended and was taken to the hospital for observation.
2006 Week 10 vs SEA (4 / 3 / 22 / 0 rec)
Curtis caught three of his five targets for 22 yards. QB Marc Bulger looked his way twice in the red zone.
2006 Week 11 vs CAR (3 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Curtis made his lone reception at the start of the fourth quarter just when the Rams' offense started to show some life. He did a nice job of diving for the sticks to make sure he gained enough for the first down on the play.
2006 Week 12 vs SF (3 / 3 / 41 / 1 rec)
Curtis caught all three targets, including a 27 yarder at the end of the first half that led a 51 yard Jeff Wilkins field goal, and the winning touchdown with 29 seconds in the game.
2006 Week 14 vs CHI (5 / 4 / 77 / 0 rec, 1 / -9 / 0 rush)
Curtis had the Rams' longest play of the day on his first catch. The ball was beautifully thrown by Bulger and Curtis caught it for a 42 yard gain. Curtis was targeted deep on fourth down in the second half and he made the catch for 22 yards. He replaced Isaac Bruce on a few plays but was mainly used as the third receiver.
2006 Week 16 vs WAS (1 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)
Curtis caught the only ball thrown to him for an 18 yard gain.
2006 Week 17 vs MIN (2 / 2 / 39 / 0 rec)
Curtis made a big play catching a 31 yard pass late in the second quarter putting the Rams in scoring range. Curtis caught an eight yard pass for a first down in the third quarter. Those were Curtis' only receptions in the game.
2005 Week 1 vs SF (14 / 7 / 63 / 0 rec)
Curtis had a very good game as the Rams third receiver with seven receptions for 63 yards. He got a lot of looks from Bulger and came up big as three of his seven catches were for first downs. Curtis had three endzone targets from Bulger in the game but each were overthrown or deflected by a 49er.
2005 Week 2 vs ARI (4 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)
Curtis continues to contribute to the St. Louis offense as the #3 wide receiver. He received five targets, but could only catch two. Curtis caught his first opportunity for 19 yards and a first down in the opening quarter, then finished the game with a six yard catch in the fourth. He also lost a seven yard catch in the first quarter due to a penalty. Both of the other targets were defended well and he had little chance to make a play.
2005 Week 3 vs TEN (5 / 5 / 56 / 1 rec)
Characterized with a legitimate 4.35 speed in the 40, Curtis has every opportunity to make the most of a potential starting assignment should Isaac Bruce be sidelined for any length of time. Against the Titans, Curtis added an explosive piece to the Rams' offense.
2005 Week 4 vs NYG (7 / 6 / 78 / 0 rec)
Curtis started the game for the Rams due to WR Isaac Bruce being inactive with a turf toe injury. Curtis was targeted seven times, catching all but one pass. He caught his first two targets for 18 yards each, but he fumbled the second one resulting in the first turnover of the game. Curtis made four more catches, but none longer than 14 yards. He was used predominantly as a possession receiver, running underneath and middle depth routes.
2005 Week 5 vs SEA (9 / 5 / 63 / 1 rec)
Curtis was QB Marc Bulger's favorite target early in the game, but Bulger and Curtis couldn't hook up. Curtis was only able to catch one of his first five targets. However, Curtis opened the second quarter by pulling in a 25 yard touchdown pass. Curtis was also targeted in the end zone during the third quarter, but didn't see a ball come his way during the fourth.
2005 Week 6 vs IND (5 / 3 / 73 / 1 rec)
Curtis is the clear number two wide receiver option with Isaac Bruce out. His touchdown came in the first quarter, as he stutter stepped and then blew past his defender and Marc Bulger hit him in stride for an easy 57 yard touchdown.
2005 Week 7 vs NO (4 / 3 / 69 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 1 rush)
Curtis made the most of the balls thrown his way. The one ball he dropped was one that was catchable. He was used deep on a couple of occasions, and executed a reverse perfectly that resulted in a touchdown. On one play, he had beaten his defender on a deep route, but the defender committed a penalty on him, dragging him down at the Saints' six yard line before he could attempt to catch the ball.
2005 Week 8 vs JAX (7 / 3 / 105 / 1 rec)
Curtis showed off his speed and route running ability by running by the Jaguars' top cornerback, Rashean Mathis for an 83 yard touchdown. While he was only targeted five times, he appeared to be a threat to have a big play each time he was involved in a pass play.
2005 Week 10 vs SEA (9 / 6 / 51 / 0 rec)
Curtis led Rams' receivers in receptions, but he was also manhandled in press coverage by the Seattle defensive backs. At its worst Curtis was knocked to the ground by a Seattle DB in bump and run at the line of scrimmage while a pass from QB Marc Bulger sailed over his head. Curtis dropped his first target on a crossing route inside the ten yard line. On Bulger's interception Curtis fell down allowing the deep ball to be picked off easily. Curtis was able to draw a pass interference flag on a deep ball in the third quarter setting up a field goal by Jeff Wilkins.
2005 Week 11 vs ARI (12 / 9 / 98 / 1 rec)
Curtis had 13 balls thrown his way, and came through with 9 catches for 98 yards and a late touchdown from 26 yards out. Until the late scoring strike, Curtis did most of his damage on short and medium pass routes.
2005 Week 12 vs HOU (3 / 1 / 56 / 1 rec)
Curtis was noticeably absent for most of the game, as the return of WR Isaac Bruce to full duty relegated Curtis back to the #3 WR option. Curtis was not targeted until the third quarter, a deep ball down the middle that sailed over his head. His second target was batted away, but his final chance was the biggest. Curtis caught a short pass near the line of scrimmage in overtime, and then took the ball 56 total yards for a touchdown to win the game.
2005 Week 13 vs WAS (5 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)
A combination of Isaac Bruce's return from injury and QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's inexperience may spell doom for Curtis' productivity. Over the last two games with Fitzpatrick at the helm, Curtis has caught only three short screen passes. Last week he turned one of those into a long touchdown, but was not so prosperous in this game. Curtis finished with only six yards on two catches.
2005 Week 14 vs MIN (5 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Curtis' stats continue to suffer with the return of Isaac Bruce. He had two catches for 13 yards as most of the targets went to Holt and Bruce. Curtis was the target on two of Fitzpatrick's interceptions in the second quarter. He also had an end zone target late in the game but could not hold on to the ball.
2005 Week 15 vs PHI (1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Curtis grabbed both balls thrown his way, but one was called back by penalty. His production appears to be suffering the most from his new quarterback's ineffectiveness.
2005 Week 16 vs SF (4 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Curtis had a modest game, and though he was the intended target of some deep passes, was unable to catch any of them.
2005 Week 17 vs DAL (3 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)
To watch the game, it is surprising that Curtis and McDonald only had a total of five receptions. They caught all five balls thrown their way and while the gains were modest, they provided needed outlets for Martin.
