WR Byron Pringle - Kansas City Chiefs
|6-2, 205||Born: 11-17-1993||College: Kansas State||Drafted: ---|
2019 Week 5 vs IND (9 / 6 / 103 / 1 rec)
Byron Pringle caught six passes on 9 targets for 103 yards and one touchdown. The Chiefs #5 receiver came on in a big way against the Colts, scoring the Chiefs only offensive touchdown while also generating big plays down the field. Pringle caught passes of 28, 27, and 27 yards, which were three of the Chiefs four longest plays of the game. Pringle's touchdown catch came on wild play (described above) where Mahomes was able to elude the Colts pass rush with an improbably set of moves before throwing a pin point pass to Pringle in the end zone. Pringle gets some credit on this play too, as he ran his route and then recognized that Mahomes was scrambling and worked back to his quarterback, which his defender had no way of recovering on. His 28 yard catch was of a similar variety, with Mahomes scrambling outside the pocket and Pringle doing a good job of working back to his quarterback and getting open. He also managed to slip out of a leg tackle that had him tied up, showing nice strength when he has the ball in his hands. Now that he's popped, lets hope he can't stop. Sorry, I couldn't resist the Pringle joke.
2019 Week 6 vs HOU (3 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)
Byron Pringle caught two passes for 24 yards on three targets in the Chiefs loss to the Texans on Sunday. Pringle went the way of Hardman and Robinson, which is to say the three of them were left with less than 30% of Mahomes targets on pass attempts. Pringle played very well when given a chance in the Chiefs lineup, but that time has largely come to an end with Hill returning to the lineup and Watkins due back as early as this week against the Broncos.
