TE Doug Jolley - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
|6-4, 250||Born: 1-2-1979||College: Brigham Young||Drafted: Round 2, pick|
2006 Week 3 vs CAR (1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Jolley saw his only target and reception just short of the goal line in the third quarter.
2005 Week 1 vs KC (3 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
For the precise reason you should keep an eye out for Baker, that's exactly why you should pretty much avoid Jolley at this point. His role in the offense is very hazy, and only three passes went in his direction (none in the first half). If an injury should befall Baker, then Jolley might be someone to keep an eye out for. But at this point, he is just a solid NFL backup tight end - and a fantasy afterthought.
2005 Week 4 vs BAL (3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Jolley played more than teammate Chris Baker, but was unable to use that to his advantage. He stayed in to block more than he released in pass routes.
2005 Week 5 vs TB (3 / 3 / 46 / 0 rec)
Jolley was the most productive tight end for the Jets catching all three passes thrown his was for 46 yards, and his longest catch was for 22 yards in the fourth quarter, but the drive ended with an interception.
2005 Week 9 vs SD (4 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Jolley saw a lot of targets after starting TE Chris Baker left with an injury. Jolley was targeted five times, only catching one pass. Four of Jolley's five passing targets came from Brooks Bollinger. The Jets seemingly were content to look underneath once Bollinger came in the game, rarely looking very far downfield. They seemingly didn't want to put him in a position where he needed to make big plays. Therefore, much of his action was to the TE and the fullback. If Bollinger is going to be the new Jets' starter, combined with the Baker injury, Jolley may become a much bigger part of the passing game.
2005 Week 10 vs CAR (4 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
Jolley filled in for the injured Chris Baker (broken fibula, out for the season) as the starting TE for the Jets. He was targeted five times, catching three passes for 32 yards - but a fourth quarter seven yard completion was turned down by HC Herman Edwards as the Jets accepted a penalty on Carolina instead. Jolley was also targeted in the second quarter on a TE screen, but the play was slow in developing and QB Brooks Bollinger threw at his feet while he had pressure in his face. His other target was intercepted by LB Will Witherspoon who took the pass back for a Panthers' score.
2005 Week 11 vs DEN (2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Starting tight end Doug Jolley had only one four yard reception.
2005 Week 12 vs NO (6 / 4 / 62 / 0 rec)
Starting tight end Doug Jolley had four catches for 62 yards. Jolley had a nice grab for 21 yards, snatching the ball from Saints' Mike McKenzie and preventing an interception, putting the Jets in position for the final field goal attempt.
2005 Week 13 vs NE (3 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)
Jolley had receptions of 15 and eleven yards.
2005 Week 14 vs OAK (5 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Jolley had two receptions. He bobbled and dropped an easy touchdown catch in the third quarter.
2005 Week 15 vs MIA (12 / 9 / 102 / 1 rec)
Jolley fumbled the ball in the Jets 42 yard line early in the game to give the Dolphins great field position. He made up for it with his first touchdown as a Jet with a 60 yard reception from Bollinger after the safety fell down on the play. He went on to have a career day as he was targeted ten times and finished the day with nine receptions for 102 yards. He looked to be Bollinger's favorite target as he threw him the ball when he wasn't sure where to throw.
2005 Week 16 vs NE (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jolley was targeted twice, but did not record a catch. He has been a disappointment since the Jets traded for him this past offseason.
2005 Week 17 vs BUF (2 / 1 / -1 / 0 rec)
Jolley dropped an easy pass and caught his only other target for a loss of a yard.
