RB Tony Fiammetta - Free Agent
|6-0, 245||Born: 8-22-1986||College: Syracuse||Drafted: Round 4, pick 2009|
2013 Week 6 vs NYG (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 30 / 0 rec)
Fiammetta lines up primarily as a lead blocking back for Matt Forte, but near the end of the first quarter, the Bears ran a play action pass and Jay Cutler was looking to go deep to Brandon Marshall. However, Marshall was covered and when Fiammetta broke through the line on the simulated run, he found himself wide open. He ran about 12 yards, turned around and Cutler checked the ball down to him. Fiammetta turned and began to rumble down the middle of the field, breaking to the right side as the down-field receivers began to block. He rumbled through arm-tackles and by the time the defense caught up with him, he had run for a huge 30 yard gain.
2013 Week 10 vs DET (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Fiammetta is primarily used as a blocking back, but he sometimes breaks out of the backfield for a short pass. On the first drive of the 4th quarter, he has a short come-back for four yards and it was his only offensive touch of the day.
2013 Week 11 vs BAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Fiammetta was targeted on a short pass in the flat near the goal line when Chicago was deep in Baltimore territory. The pass was just a little off target and he couldn't come up with it.
2013 Week 12 vs STL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)
Fiammetta is starting to get more involved on the offensive side of the ball. He is primarily used as a blocker, and was even flagged for a holding penalty in the second quarter, negating a big 28 yard run by Alshon Jeffery. But Fiametta also contributed in the passing game, with a nice 14 yard catch and run on the opening drive of the second half. On the play, Fiametta initially stayed in to block, but released after one second and he found a soft spot in the flat. Josh McCown flipped him the ball and Fiametta turned and barreled up field for a big 14 yard gain. He had another reception in the 4th quarter - a check down catch and run for six yards.
