RB T.J. Duckett - Free Agent
|6-0, 254||Born: 2-17-1981||College: Michigan State||Drafted: Round 1, pick 18|
2008 Week 2 vs SF (2 / 3 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett didn't see much action in this game, though he did score on a short run in the fourth quarter to tie the game.
2008 Week 3 vs STL (19 / 79 / 2 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett scored one touchdown in the second quarter and another in the fourth, but in this game he was more than just a short yardage specialist. He carried 19 times, mostly in the second half, and averaged 4.2 yards per rush. His role will be reduced when Maurice Morris returns, but Duckett will continue to be the goal line guy.
2008 Week 5 vs NYG (4 / 14 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett did not see his first carry until the fourth quarter, where he had four for 14 yards. Even with Maurice Morris inactive for this game, Duckett was not a part of the gameplan. Although the Seahawks never got close enough to the goal line, to see if he would have got the carries there.
2008 Week 6 vs GB (2 / 9 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
T.J. Duckett had a couple touches but was not a big part of the game plan.
2008 Week 10 vs MIA (1 / -1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett was brought in for the first time late in the game and got a goal line carry, which was promptly stuffed by the Miami defense.
2008 Week 11 vs ARI (5 / 5 / 2 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett had two touchdown runs in the fourth quarter of one and two yards. He finished the day with five yards on five carries.
2008 Week 12 vs WAS (1 / 4 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett was a non factor in this game and only saw the field on a short yardage situation.
2008 Week 15 vs STL (3 / 4 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Like clockwork, Duckett came in for the goal line work. He needed a couple of tries at it, but eventually scored the TD.
2008 Week 17 vs ARI (6 / 13 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett got the only Seattle rushing touchdown of one yard. He was the Seahawk's go to back in short yardage and red zone opportunities. Duckett finished the game with six rushes for 13 yards
2007 Week 1 vs OAK (3 / 4 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Hardly a factor in this game, Duckett spelled Bell on a couple of plays, recording three carries for four yards.
2007 Week 7 vs TB (4 / 30 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett didn't make a huge impact on the game aside from one sequence of runs where he basically ran roughshod over the Tampa Bay defense. And it wasn't just that Duckett looked very good running the football (which he did), it was the fact that it was his number that was called upon when Kevin Jones needed a temporary breather. Tatum Bell didn't see the field all game long, and it is apparent at this point that Duckett is the primary backup.
2007 Week 8 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett had only one carry for one yard in the game.
2007 Week 9 vs DEN (5 / 48 / 1 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett made the most of his five carries. He had runs of 19 and 24 yards. On the 24 yard play, quarterback J. T. O' Sullivan was hit as he handed the ball to Duckett. Duckett was unable to hold onto the ball, but it bounced right back to him. He found a big hole up the middle for a long gain. Duckett also had a three yard touchdown run.
2007 Week 10 vs ARI (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett's only carry was on fourth down when he failed to convert a fourth and one turning the ball over to Arizona.
2007 Week 12 vs GB (7 / 29 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett saw a lot of action on the first series of the game, but his workload quickly dwindled as the pace of the game went on. Kevin Jones had a lot of success running the football, and it was Jones who got the goal line carry (and touchdown) late in the fourth quarter.
2007 Week 14 vs DAL (9 / 60 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett was used to provide an occasional breather for Kevin Jones in order to keep Jones fresh for the second half. Duckett showed that he still has a burst of speed on his first carry when he blasted though a hole for a 32 yard touchdown in the first quarter. But, he does not always run with a sense of authority and determination as he was unable to gain more than a couple of yards when the hole was not there.
2007 Week 15 vs SD (4 / 10 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett isn't featured very prominently in the passing game, and the Lions fell behind by far too many points early on for him to become much of a factor running the football either.
2007 Week 16 vs KC (15 / 102 / 1 rush, 2 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Duckett was running with authority. He became the starting running back after Kevin Jones' injury and seems to be the better back at this time. Duckett finished with 102 yards on just 15 carries, including a rushing touchdown. He also caught both passes sent his way for 22 yards. Duckett may see more activity next week depending on the severity of the injury to Jones.
2007 Week 17 vs GB (13 / 29 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 32 / 0 rec)
Duckett averaged a paltry 2.2 yards per attempt on 13 carries and his long run went for a gain of five yards. His biggest contribution on offense came in the passing game as he took his first target for a gain of 22 yards early on in the second quarter. Duckett's second grab of the game came in the third quarter and went for 10 yards.
2006 Week 2 vs DAL (5 / 24 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett got five carries in the game, and ran powerfully. He had a nice 15 yard gain for his best play.
2006 Week 10 vs PHI (2 / 16 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -3 / 0 rec)
Duckett had one twelve yard run on the first of his two carries, and caught his only target for a loss. In a game where Portis was not available for nearly three quarters, it speaks volumes that Duckett got only two carries.
2006 Week 11 vs TB (5 / 26 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett was not a big factor in the game, rushing the ball five times for 26 yards.
2006 Week 12 vs CAR (7 / 24 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett was not a big factor in the game, rushing the ball seven times for 24 yards.
2006 Week 13 vs ATL (4 / 9 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The former Falcons' first round draft choice gained nine yards on four carries.
2006 Week 14 vs PHI (3 / 1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett had four carries, interspersed throughout the game. He did gain 10 yards on a second quarter rush, but the play was called back on a penalty. The Redskins opted to pull out RB Ladell Betts in the fourth quarter on a goal to go situation for Duckett, which proved to be a questionable decision. Duckett gained no yards on his only carry from the Eagles' three yard line, and the Redskins failed to punch it in for a touchdown.
2006 Week 15 vs NO (4 / 18 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The running game is clearly the job of Ladell Betts, and Duckett is nothing more than an injury fill-in. He had just four carries to Betts' 22.
2006 Week 16 vs STL (5 / 18 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)
Duckett had just five rushes for 18 yards, but came up big for Washington early in the game, scoring on a five yard touchdown run on the first offensive series of the game for the Redskins. He also caught one pass for 19 yards.
2006 Week 17 vs NYG (3 / -4 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett entered the game during the initial Redskins' series. They ran a draw play for him, but he was met and stopped at the line of scrimmage. He stepped in again to give starting RB Ladell Betts a quick breather late in the third quarter and popped a nice fourteen yard run up the gut, but it was called back and negated on a face mask penalty. Duckett pulled Washington to within a score when he plunged in for a one yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter. Duckett got another carry on the next drive from the five yard line, but lost three yards and gave way to Betts on the next play. Washington ran play action to Duckett on the touchdown pass to Sellers.
2005 Week 1 vs PHI (8 / 15 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett entered the game when the Falcons were inside the 10-yard line on two separate occasions. The Falcons were intent on feeding the ball to Duckett. His one yard touchdown was a great example of "power" football behind his right guard. Duckett also had a similar five yard touchdown run called back due to a holding penalty. However, Duckett was largely ineffective on most of his other carries being slammed into the center of the line. He hesitated on several plays when there was nowhere to run.
2005 Week 2 vs SEA (4 / 18 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett only had four carries in the game. His first was on Atlanta's last series before halftime. Duckett took a first down carry straight up the gut and plowed his way for a nice nine yard gain, but followed that up by being stuffed on second and short. His third carry came on second and ten during the third quarter for another solid eight yard pickup straight ahead. His last carry was a one yard touchdown that followed a pass interference call in the end zone setting up a first and goal at the one. Duckett has entered the game specifically for short yardage purposes in both the first and second week of the season.
2005 Week 3 vs BUF (12 / 75 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett was not used until the closing minutes of the first half when he gained 11 yards and a first down on his first touch of the game. He was used more in the second half to spell Warrick Dunn, gaining a first down on a 13 yard carry before running in a 12 yard touchdown on the Falcons' third drive of the second half. His biggest gain of the day came when he ran outside to the right for 25 yards near the end of the game.
2005 Week 4 vs MIN (14 / 40 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett played his usual role as a power back and provided 40 yards to the Falcons' total and a touchdown. He scored on Atlanta's second possession taking the handoff from Vick and powering his way into the end zone for the one yard score.
2005 Week 5 vs NE (5 / 30 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett was barely heard from, for a couple of reasons. 1) The pace of the game was more of a passing style, as evidenced by the two quarterbacks combining for over 600 yards passing and six touchdowns between them. 2) The Falcons didn't really get in close to the goal line for Duckett to take advantage of a short score.
2005 Week 6 vs NO (2 / 5 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett ran for five yards on two first half carries, and then was seen walking to the locker room in the second quarter. Later news explained that Duckett suffered a right ankle sprain. Halftime x-rays were negative, but he did not return to the lineup after halftime.
2005 Week 10 vs GB (4 / 31 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)
Duckett returned to the lineup this week after missing the last two games with sprained ankle. He did not show signs from the injury during his limited playing time. Duckett was successful running the ball for 31 yards on just four carries and provided an additional 27 receiving yards on two catches.
2005 Week 11 vs TB (14 / 51 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)
Duckett seems to be running well after missing a few weeks because of an injury. Dunn is still the team's man for yardage, but when the Falcons are near the goal line, they feed the ball to Duckett. He finished the day with 51 yards and a one yard touchdown run right before halftime, which put his team back in the game.
2005 Week 12 vs DET (19 / 72 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett's first action came on at the end of the third Falcons' possession. He had two carries inside the five yard line. The second carry was over left guard for a one yard touchdown plunge. Duckett got a chance to be the focus of the Atlanta offense at the open of the fourth quarter. He ran hard with great shoulder lean pounding the Lions defense for several long runs and first downs between the tackles.
2005 Week 13 vs CAR (4 / 4 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Duckett's first action came at the start of the second quarter. He had two carries pounding between the tackles for no gain and four yards. Duckett was stopped for no gain on both of his other two carries including a short yardage situation of third and two in the second half.
2005 Week 14 vs NO (10 / 13 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett was truly the short yardage back, averaging only 1.3 yards a carry over his ten rushes. He scored the first touchdown of the game, from one yard out.
2005 Week 15 vs CHI (8 / -2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett had a horrendous game, rushing for negative two yards on eight carries. His best run of the game was six yards and it was nullified by a penalty. He got two consecutive carries on third and one and fourth and one and netted minus three yards on the plays as the Falcons turned the ball over on downs.
2005 Week 16 vs TB (11 / 32 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Duckett ran for 32 yards on 11 carries, but had a big Atlanta score in the fourth quarter on a two yard run that gave his club the lead.
2005 Week 17 vs CAR (6 / -4 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Duckett had a horrible game, finishing with a negative yardage total on six carries. The worst carry came in the fourth quarter, as Duckett gained one yard, fumbled the ball backwards for eight yards, where it was scooped up by the Panthers' CB Ricky Manning for a Carolina touchdown.
