Game Recaps

2011 Week 12 vs SEA (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)

Sellers only had one catch, and it was on the same type of crossing pattern behind the backers that Davis made hay on early in the game.

2010 Week 2 vs HOU (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 6 / 4 / 38 / 0 rec)

Sellers was surprisingly involved in the passing game. He made two nice catches in the flat for first downs and McNabb even targeted him downfield. He got one goal line carry but wasn't able to get in.

2010 Week 3 vs STL (1 / 1 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)

Sellers was involved here and there in the passing game. He made a catch and broke a tackle for 11.

2010 Week 4 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

Mike Sellers had just two targets and one short catch of five yards in the fourth quarter.

2010 Week 5 vs GB (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)

Sellers had a nice swing pass early in the second quarter. He broke out of the backfield and was not covered by the defense, and McNabb hit him on a catch and run for 22 yards. It was his only reception or carry of the game. He was targeted two other times in the game, but the first was well defended and the second was too low and hit the turf before he could catch it.

2010 Week 6 vs IND (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Sellers mainly blocked all evening for the Skins but he did turn a small dump off pass into a nice gainer after breaking away from 3 tacklers to scamper for a first down.

2010 Week 7 vs CHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)

Sellers had one reception on a screen pass against the Bears. He was targeted twice more on similar routes but both passes fell incomplete.

2010 Week 13 vs NYG (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Sellers was involved a little bit in the passing game, catching a pair of passes late in the game and dropping one early in the game when he turned upfield before he actually caught the ball.

2010 Week 14 vs TB (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)

Was called upon in the passing game and also provided some good run blocking for the Skins during the game.

2009 Week 2 vs STL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Sellers may have been a Pro Bowl fullback, but in fantasy circles that does not mean much at all. His value is to the tailback as a lead blocker. In touchdown leagues he may have slight value as he does get occasional targets, as shown by a pass that was heading his way inside the five yard line that would have been a touchdown catch for Sellers if not for a deflection by a St. Louis defender.

2009 Week 9 vs ATL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 56 / 0 rec)

Sellers lined up at tight end at times, and caught the best gain of the day for the Washington passing game on a bonafide deep route down the middle of the field. He also made the key block to open the hole for Ladell Betts TD run. Sellers did struggle in pass protection on some snaps. He'll remain a versatile and semi-productive part of this offense, especially while Chris Cooley is out, but there's little fantasy value to mine here.

2009 Week 10 vs DEN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 1 / 35 / 1 rec)

Sellers only had one catch on the day, but it was a big one. The Redskins lined up in a field goal formation, but then switched to a pooch punt/shotgun formation. Sellers was lined up as an H-back on the right side of the line. When the ball was snapped he then ran to the left side (while Hunter Smith rolled right) and pretended to block for a split second. Confusion between Darrel Reid and Marcus Thomas ensued when Sellers ran a route down the left side of the field. Reid passed Sellers to Thomas in coverage, but Thomas failed to follow Sellers down the field. Smith was able to find open deep and threw a good pass (for a punter that is). Sellers had to slow down a little, but he cradled the ball in and plodded into the end zone for six.

2009 Week 11 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Fullback Mike Sellers had one target in the first quarter that fell incomplete. Sellers has minimal fantasy value but could see goal line work going forward with so many injuries to the Redskins running backs.

2009 Week 12 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Fullback Mike Sellers caught one 12-yard pass in the fourth quarter against the Eagles in Week 12 for his only touch of the game.

2009 Week 13 vs NO (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Sellers was quiet in this one, but he did have the fumble when he was toppled in overtime that was discovered when the booth reviewed the play after a Sean Payton timeout.

2008 Week 2 vs NO (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)

Sellers had an outstanding game from a blocking perspective but had very few opportunities for touches.

2008 Week 3 vs ARI (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Mike Sellers was not a huge factor in moving the ball for Washington. On one of his targets he dropped the ball in the flat while wide open. This won't help him get future looks.

2008 Week 4 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Sellers left the game with an injury.

2008 Week 5 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Sellers was the intended target on a second and goal pass from the four yard line. However, Jason Campbell's pass was batted at the line.

2008 Week 11 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 15 / 1 rec)

Sellers capped off the opening drive with a two yard touchdown reception. He scored on a play action fake where Campbell rolled out to the right and Sellers beat Bradie James to the flat. Easy pitch and catch for the score.

2008 Week 12 vs SEA (1 / 5 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 30 / 0 rec)

Sellers has been an interesting player over the last couple of weeks. His targets have increased and he is consistently getting looks in the red zone. He scored last week and should have scored this week on the very same play, if were not for a dropped pass.

2008 Week 13 vs NYG (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 20 / 0 rec)

The bruising fullback used primarily as a lead blocker was able to slip out of the backfield and catch one of his two targets for a 20 yard gain.

2008 Week 14 vs BAL (2 / 16 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)

RB Mike Sellers saw only limited playing time in the loss.

2007 Week 1 vs MIA (2 / 8 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)

Sellers caught both of his targets coming out of the backfield, and proved just as tough as ever to bring down. He had several broken tackles on his two touches.

2007 Week 2 vs PHI (4 / 8 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Sellers had four carries for eight yards in all short yard situations in the first half but did not get a carry in the second half.

2007 Week 5 vs DET (5 / 24 / 1 rush, 3 / 3 / 36 / 1 rec)

This was possibly the biggest game of Mike Sellers' career in terms of offensive production, he posted 24 yards on five carries, including a one yard touchdown run. Sellers also hauled in three passes for 36 yards, capped off by an eight yard touchdown reception. It has been reported in the media that Sellers has been lobbying Coach Joe Gibbs for more short yardage touches, and it appears that Coach Gibbs is listening.

2007 Week 6 vs GB (3 / 14 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)

Sellers averaged just over 4.6 yards on three first half rushes and caught his only pass in the second quarter.

2007 Week 7 vs ARI (5 / 11 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 11 / 0 rec)

Sellers continues to factor into the Washington Redskins game plan, especially in short yardage situations. Sellers posted 11 yards on three receptions and had a surprising five carries for 11 yards. Sellers was held out of the end zone however.

2007 Week 8 vs NE (1 / 4 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Sellers started as Portis' lead blocker, and added one rushing attempt.

2007 Week 9 vs NYJ (1 / 5 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)

Sellers started as Portis' lead blocker, but contributed most of his stats through his three dump off catches.

2007 Week 10 vs PHI (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Sellers failed to gain a first down on his only carry, a third and one where he attempted to dive over the pile but failed. He later left the game with an undisclosed injury.

2007 Week 11 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)

Sellers caught both of his targets for 13 yards. Despite his size, Sellers is a good athlete, and a dangerous weapon catching the ball out of the backfield. Though he did not have an opportunity to score this week, he is generally worked into the gameplan in goal line packages.

2007 Week 14 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Sellers scored on a one yard run from the Bears one yard after a 54 yard reception by RB Clinton Portis on Washington's first drive of the second half. It was his only carry of the game.

2007 Week 15 vs NYG (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)

Sellers caught one pass out of the backfield and spectacularly hurdled a Giants defender en route to a 19 yard gain.

2007 Week 16 vs MIN (3 / 3 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)

Sellers played his normal role of getting a few touches and blocking most of the night. There was a scare he was hurt in the third quarter, but he eventually got off of the field under his own powers.

2006 Week 1 vs MIN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)

Sellers caught his only target for a two yard gain.

2006 Week 2 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)

Sellers was a solid target out of the backfield, turning both his looks into first downs.

2006 Week 3 vs HOU (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 9 / 0 rec)

Nine yards was all Sellers could gain on the three passes he caught, but he was part of the Redskins' passing barrage, which involved eight different receivers.

2006 Week 4 vs JAX (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Sellers' contributions were as a blocker for Portis and Betts.

2006 Week 6 vs TEN (3 / 15 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Sellers lined up and played fullback in this game seeing more carries today than he's seen all season long. Generally he's only utilized as a lead blocker.

2006 Week 7 vs IND (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 5 / 0 rec)

Sellers had two short receptions early in the fourth quarter.

2006 Week 9 vs DAL (3 / 12 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)

Sellers combined for 21 yards on five touches.

2006 Week 10 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)

Sellers caught both passes thrown his way for 18 yards.

2006 Week 13 vs ATL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Sellers had no carries, but caught a pass in the fourth quarter for 12 yards.

2006 Week 14 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)

Sellers caught a three yard pass in the second quarter, which proved to be his only reception of Week 14. He had two more passes come in his general area in the third quarter, but both were just throwaways by a hurried QB Jason Campbell as neither was very catchable for Sellers.

2006 Week 17 vs NYG (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 11 / 1 rec)

Sellers caught a ten yard pass on the first Redskins' drive. He followed that up with a first down two yard run on their next possession. Late in the game on the goal line the Redskins went with play action and QB Jason Campbell hit Sellers all alone for an easy touchdown. Sellers went in motion out of the backfield, but nobody from the Giants' defense went with him.

2005 Week 4 vs SEA (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 1 rec)

Sellers' only touch of the game came off play action from the four yard line. The Redskins did a nice job of selling run to freeze the linebacker for just a moment allowing Sellers to get outside and score.

2005 Week 5 vs DEN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 1 rec)

Sellers was only targeted once all day, but that was enough for him to score his second touchdown in as many games. It came on the same play as his score last week, on a bootleg left quarterback option. Sellers was covered initially, but the defender had his eyes on Brunell and Sellers was able to quietly slip away just enough to score.

2005 Week 6 vs KC (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)

Sellers was used sparingly and saw his streak of two straight games with a touchdown catch come to an end. When Chris Cooley got dinged up early in the fourth quarter Sellers came into the game, but was used mainly as a blocking fullback.

2005 Week 7 vs SF (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 21 / 2 rec)

Sellers continued his remarkable season with two touchdown catches, giving him four touchdowns in as many games. He now has five catches for four touchdowns on the season, only really being utilized in the red zone. His first touchdown catch was on a pass to the left flat where he was able to outrun a linebacker towards the pylon. His second touchdown was mostly his doing after the catch, as he caught a short pass over the middle and bowled his way into the end zone from ten yards out. He also was used extensively on special teams.

2005 Week 8 vs NYG (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)

Sellers was used in tandem with James Thrash and Robert Royal as Chris Cooley's replacement after he got injured. He did decently, mainly being used as a pass blocker. Sellers was called for a key penalty on special teams that negated a decent sized return.

2005 Week 9 vs PHI (1 / 1 / 1 rush, 3 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)

Sellers made the most of his first carry of the season, scoring a touchdown on an inside handoff from the one yard line. As Sellers extended the ball across the goal line, the ball was knocked loose and Philadelphia recovered. However, the play was called a touchdown on the field and the call was upheld following review by instant replay. Sellers also made several big receptions for Washington in the fourth quarter that helped sustain clock-killing drives.

2005 Week 10 vs TB (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 7 / 1 rec)

Sellers scored his sixth touchdown of the season on the Redskins' first drive of the second half. He motioned to the left flat, caught a pass roughly ten yards shy of the goal line, and was able to power his way into the end zone. He has tripled his previous career high in touchdowns for a season and shows no sign of slowing. He was a valuable special teams contributor, blowing up the wedge and wrecking havoc in general.

2005 Week 11 vs OAK (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Sellers was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure after being injured on punt coverage. He was hit after the play was over by Isaiah Ekejiuba, and appeared to be in immense pain on the sideline. He returned to the game on a later punt coverage team and got into fisticuffs with Ekejiuba, and was called for a personal foul. Apparently the injury was to his kidneys, and he currently remains in the hospital under observation.

2005 Week 15 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 3 / 1 rec)

Sellers was wide open for a screen catch out of the flat to run in easily for a touchdown score.

2005 Week 17 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 4 / 1 rec)

Sellers made the most of his lone reception of the day, catching a four yard pass in the flat for a touchdown. Sellers also recovered the Eagles' muffed kickoff return that set up the touchdown.
