TE Jeremy Shockey - Free Agent
|6-5, 252||Born: 8-18-1980||College: Miami||Drafted: Round 1, pick 14|
2011 Week 1 vs ARI (3 / 3 / 51 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey formed a good tandem at TE with Greg Olsen in this game, locating the soft spot in the defense and giving Newton a big target to throw to. Shockey's most impressive catch was a diving effort on a deep dig route as he laid out for the ball, securing it before it hit the turf. Like Olsen, Shockey was utilised mostly in the short to intermediate passing game. As far as fantasy impact goes, Olsen will be the more productive and will produce more explosive plays, but Shockey is a weapon the Panthers offense will make full use of.
2011 Week 2 vs GB (5 / 3 / 56 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey was an integral part of the game plan early just as Olsen was, but his role was de-emphasized in the second half. Shockey was the recipient of a pass on a shallow crossing route in the first half which he took up the field for 18 yards. Shockey was targeted by Newton on a skinny post route later in the game, but due to Newton's high pass, Shockey was unable to reel it in. Expect Shockey and Olsen to thrive more in future weeks, but remember that the tight end is a key part in this offense.
2011 Week 3 vs JAX (7 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey's impact on the game, like all other offensive skill positions, was capped by the rain and soggy conditions on the field for some of this game. Newton missed Shockey on a couple of targets, including a disappointing one hopper in the third quarter as Newton struggled. In the fourth quarter, Newton delivered a nice pass to Shockey for a 16 yard gain off play action as Shockey found the soft spot in the zone. The former Hurricane continues to be a good option for Newton in this passing attack, but the better chemistry is between Newton and Olsen.
2011 Week 4 vs CHI (5 / 2 / 41 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey cut a frustrated figure after the game as he remonstrated on Twitter with NFL officials as to why his touchdown catch in the second half was called back by offensive pass interference. On the play, Shockey ran down the seam with a trailing defender in his path. It looked as if he nudged the defender, but not enough to knock him off his feet. Shockey played a good game when called upon by his quarterback, starting the game off with a nice 15 yard catch in traffic near the red zone. Shockey, lined up a wide receiver, caught a beautiful touch pass from Newton down the left sideline and tapped his toes in bounds, showing great concentration and athleticism. He and Olsen will continue to be legitimate TE2 bordering on TE1 options if Newton and this offense continues to hum along as it has been.
2011 Week 5 vs NO (7 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey had a chip on his shoulder in this contest going up against his former team, who unceremoniously released him at the end of last season. Against Gregg Williams' pressure schemes, Shockey was often left in man coverage on a linebacker in the short to intermediate range of the field. Shockey made a terrific diving reception on a shallow crossing pattern early in the game to make clear his intentions. Shockey ran after the catch with attitude and desire, delivering punishment to his former teammates. Although he did not have the biggest day statistically, Shockey was a constant safety blanket for his quarterback and continues to be a reliable TE2. He was the target of two red zone passes, both of which fell incomplete, showing Newton's willingness to throw his way when it counts.
2011 Week 6 vs ATL (7 / 4 / 60 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey was the apple of Cam Newton's eye in this game as the rookie went to his veteran tight end several times with good effect. Shockey drew an early pass interference penalty on a dig route as he found himself matched up with the strong safety down the seam. Shockey caught some nice passes down the field, including a 31-yard reception off play action in the second quarter when he got loose in the secondary. Shockey showed his incredible hands when he somehow reeled in an off-target pass from Newton as he fell to the ground. Shockey kept his concentration, tipped the football to himself with one hand and extended to make the play. Shockey consistently got open and posted up in short zones for Newton to find, presenting an easy target.
2011 Week 7 vs WAS (4 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey, like Greg Olsen, never really asserted himself in the passing game. Shockey's best play was a screen pass for 15 yards when he dragged a couple of tacklers in his wake and showed his run-after-catch skills. This is the floor for the likes of Shockey and Olsen in this passing game.
2011 Week 8 vs MIN (3 / 1 / 1 / 1 rec)
Jeremy Shockey got in the end zone as well as his fellow tight end Greg Olsen in this game, catching a touchdown pass in the red zone. Shockey did a good job to find a hole in the zone, go up and attack the football for the score. Newton's pass was delivered high so that the pass could only be caught by his tight end. Newton has an excellent rapport with his tight ends, so Shockey's value should remain steady for the remainder of the season.
2011 Week 10 vs TEN (1 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey was injured early in this game and did not play for the majority of the first half. Shockey's only reception of the contest was a nice catch in traffic for 19 yards on a deep out route. The ball was perfectly placed by Newton.
2011 Week 12 vs IND (3 / 3 / 41 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey was mainly utilised as a run blocker today as the Panthers tried to establish the run against the undersized Colts front seven. Early on, he caught a 10 yard screen pass. Shockey had a costly fumble in the second half as the Panthers were driving into the red zone. He made up for his mistake with a nice 24 yard catch down the seam, taking the football to the 2-yard line.
2011 Week 13 vs TB (1 / 1 / 26 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey had a quiet afternoon, making only one reception for a 26-yard pick-up down the left sideline as he ran a deep crossing route from his in-line position.
2011 Week 14 vs ATL (4 / 2 / 10 / 1 rec)
Jeremy Shockey got into the end zone in this game, catching a nice jump pass from Newton in the red zone. It put the safety in a bind, forcing him to make a decision in a split second. Shockey was mainly used as a check down option apart from that catch for a score.
2011 Week 15 vs HOU (4 / 2 / 35 / 1 rec)
Jeremy Shockey was the Panthers tight end to start this week, as he rumbled his way into the end zone for an early touchdown, breaking tackles en route. Shockey also caught a backside pass off play action as the entire Texans defense bit on the run. Shockey escaped out the back door for a 20 yard completion.
2011 Week 16 vs TB (2 / 2 / 14 / 1 rec)
Jeremy Shockey caught a touchdown pass late, making two tacklers miss and rumbling in for the score. Apart from that, he was rather quiet as the Panthers' passing attempts were kept to under 20.
2011 Week 17 vs NO (6 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey, like Olsen, was limited to short catches over the middle against the blitz.
2010 Week 1 vs MIN (3 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)
With the ball being spread around so evenly, it's rather difficult to assess Shockey's performance and value going forward from this game. He caught all three passes thrown his way and looked to be his confident, cocky self, but conceded a few targets to fellow TE, David Thomas, and we've yet to see if he can stay healthy for more than a few games.
2010 Week 2 vs SF (5 / 3 / 37 / 0 rec)
Shockey plays in an offense with many weapons and a QB who likes to spread around to all of them. This scenario continues to limit his upside and in week 2 we saw more of the same. He continues to make a few catches per week but he is really a shell of his former self in this offense. Shockey made a nice leaping grab down the center of the field in the 3rd quarter but in end he saw just 1 more target than fellow TE David Thomas.
2010 Week 3 vs ATL (8 / 8 / 78 / 1 rec)
If it wasn't for Lance Moore's breakout performance than Jeremy Shockey may very well have been the hero of the day (minus the loss, of course). Shockey did lead the team with targets, though, and he looked like his prototypical, cocky Shockey self throughout the game. He was reliable catching the ball and he immediately looked for contact helmet-first with the nearest defender after his catches. If he can stay healthy, this performance should be the norm for Shockey and not the exception. The man just loves to play physical, old-school-tight-end-hit-you-in-the-mouth-style football.
2010 Week 4 vs CAR (8 / 6 / 58 / 0 rec)
Shockey had a couple of bad drops, but he also got open downfield a few times and gave Brees a large "move the chains" checkdown target all day. Shockey had one catch deep in Panthers territory, but never threatened to score. He's still a viable injury/bye week/emergency TE with sneaky value because of the offense he plays in.
2010 Week 5 vs ARI (5 / 3 / 30 / 1 rec)
Played thru pain and did a solid job. He was targets twice on the opening drive, then was hit for a touchdown in the 1st half. But overall he was not used a lot and there were long gaps at times where he wasn't used in the passing game much. New Orleans spreads it around a lot but Shockey still manages when healthy to be a factor for them. He makes a great target for Brees down in the end zone and this week he followed a trend. Shockey now has 17 catches for 160 yards and 2 touchdowns over the past 3 weeks so owners have gotta be loving the production right now.
2010 Week 6 vs TB (5 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)
Worked hard, blocked hard for the running game early and then once the Saints had a comfortable lead you saw more of Dave Thomas and even some Jimmy Graham action as the game progressed. I didn't read anywhere that Shockey was hurt but he always is nursing some injury and playing thru it on Sundays. Again with the game so on hand early there was no need for him to be called upon a lot.
2010 Week 7 vs CLE (4 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)
Shockey only had 2 receptions, but Shockey is currently the best downfield option of the NO tight ends. He had a 19 yarder and an 11 yarder. At this time, due to the fact that Brees' spreads the ball around, none of the tight ends for the Saints can be considered great options for your lineup.
2010 Week 8 vs PIT (4 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Shockey was used on occasion in this game, and his biggest catch of the night came on a play where he was able to show off what makes him dangerous. Being covered one-on-one in the slot by Polamalu, Shockey made a nice shake-off move at the line to give himself some space and then ran a drag to catch a big 3rd-down play and continue a drive. Yet another Saints pass-catcher whose targets will drop when Bush gets back, Shockey is still a dangerous weapon - even if he'll never be as good to the average on-looker as his actions and attitude would suggest.
2010 Week 9 vs CAR (2 / 1 / 7 / 1 rec)
Shockey injured himself on his lone catch of the day, a 7 yard strike from Brees, and he didn't return. Hey, at least he made his one catch count, right?
2010 Week 13 vs CIN (3 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)
Shockey had one target at the goal line and another catch inside the five, but he is sharing time with rookie Jimmy Graham and can not be counted on as a fantasy play except in desperation.
2010 Week 14 vs STL (5 / 4 / 29 / 0 rec)
Shockey managed to catch four balls for 29 yards in limited playing time on Sunday. With David Thomas used primarily for his blocking prowess, Jimmy Graham appears poised to take over the starting TE mantle in New Orleans. Unless you're heavily in need of tight end help, Shockey isn't worth much of a look -- especially at this point in the season.
2010 Week 15 vs BAL (6 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)
Shockey had a catch down the one, but overall he has become more a safety valve than a weapon for Drew Brees. His fantasy value has almost completely evaporated with the rise of Jimmy Graham.
2010 Week 16 vs ATL (1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Shockey is really taking a backseat to rookie Jimmy Graham and it showed this week more than ever as he was targeted just one time on the night. Shockey is sticking around to block quite a bit but his targets #'s are taking a dive.
2010 Week 18 vs SEA (4 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)
Shockey was used as more than just a pass-catcher in this game as the Saints needed all the help they could get with their run game. His two catches both came early in the game - one on the first play of the first quarter and the other on the first play of the second.
2009 Week 1 vs DET (4 / 4 / 31 / 2 rec)
The Saints moved Shockey around the formation and put him in pass patterns from a traditional three point stance and from tight bunch formations outside the tackles. Shockey's first touchdown pass came on a play action rollout on a third down goal line play, the second after he somehow got behind the Lions' defense in the back of the end zone during the two minute drill in the first half. He finished with four catches on four targets.
2009 Week 2 vs PHI (7 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)
Shockey started Week 2 in fine fashion, ripping through the middle of the field and collecting several short passes from Drew Brees. Oddly, the Saints stopped using him and bailed on the TE position entirely after halftime, sticking with RB and WR passes instead. Shockey is certainly the top dog at tight end for the best passing attack in the league and remains a solid upside TE most weeks.
2009 Week 3 vs BUF (8 / 6 / 48 / 0 rec)
Shockey finished with the most reception of any Saint, with six. Most were short passes, but on plays that appeared to be called to get the ball in his hands as opposed to a series of dump passes. He has the confidence of his QB and showed that when the opportunity is there, he'll come up with the catch more often than not.
2009 Week 4 vs NYJ (5 / 4 / 34 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey continued his resurgence against the Jets catching 4 passes for 34 yards and providing a number of devastating blocks in the run game. Quarterback Drew Brees targeted Shockey twice deep down the middle of the field, leading to one completion for 20 yards. Drew Brees appears to look to Shockey primarily as an outlet when deeper routes by the receivers are covered. Shockey's greater impact was felt as a blocker for interior rushes and on screen passes. Shockey helped spring Pierre Thomas for a 36 yard reception on a screen pass and appears to be back to full health.
2009 Week 6 vs NYG (5 / 4 / 37 / 1 rec)
Shockey was showcased early against his old mates. He caught a TD in the back of the end zone on a play action fake at the one-yard line, and he also made a very nice back shoulder catch when he was lined up as a wide receiver, using his size and physicality advantage to make the play. Shockey sat down in the zone coverage gaps for a few other catches, but he wasn't needed as the game went on, so his numbers leveled off at a modest total.
2009 Week 7 vs MIA (5 / 4 / 105 / 0 rec)
Shockey was very quiet during the first during his return to south Florida, but in the second half he made his presence known by getting wide open downfield and then abusing Gibril Wilson with his stiff arm for about 20-25 yards after the catch. He seemed very pumped up and helped energize the Saints on their march to victory.
2009 Week 8 vs ATL (6 / 5 / 72 / 0 rec)
Shockey looked as good as he has all year, making leaping catches and running well after the reception. Shockey is approaching the fluid, strong, athletic game he had with the Giants, and he has gained the trust of Brees to the point that Brees is now giving him 50/50 balls into tight coverage, and Shockey is finishing the play. He is an everyweek TE start unless you have an elite option to play ahead of him.
2009 Week 9 vs CAR (5 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)
Shockey was targeted a few times early in the game, but was mostly asked to stay in and block vs. a tough Carolina pass rush in week 9. When called upon in the passing game, Shockey made a couple of nice athletic grabs going up above coverage to bring the passes in. His quietest game of the season. Brighter days are ahead with several soft matchups in the Saints schedule forthcoming.
2009 Week 10 vs STL (5 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
Shockey turned in a modest offering in week 10. He found himself open often, however Brees was not given enough time to find him in most cases. Shockey reeled in 3 catches for 42 yards and looked strong doing so. He continues his career resurgence and is making the most of his chances when called upon. He remains a low-end TE1 in most leagues; lacking the consistent TD's to give him more value week to week.
2009 Week 11 vs TB (4 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Shockey was covered pretty well on most of his targets and took a backseat to David Thomas in tight end targets on Sunday. He is still only a barely adequate starting fantasy TE, and that status is even more precarious with the emergence of Thomas.
2009 Week 12 vs NE (1 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Shockey took a big hit to make an early catch, but otherwise he wasn't very involved on this deep passing filled night.
2009 Week 13 vs WAS (6 / 4 / 47 / 0 rec)
Shockey helped a lot getting targets split out wide and working the middle of the field with his toughness. He was called for offensive pass interference on a red zone catch, then came right back to convert a first down with a leaping catch on the same drive. He hasn't risen to fantasy TE1 status, but his presence is helping Drew Brees stay among the elite fantasy QBs.
2009 Week 14 vs ATL (6 / 4 / 46 / 0 rec)
Shockey worked out of the slot early on, and did all of his damage during the 1st quarter of the game. Shockey caught a quick 4 passes for 46 yards before departing with a hamstring issue. He can be counted as no more than a TE2 right now due to the plethora of options in the Saints passing attack.
2009 Week 19 vs ARI (3 / 3 / 36 / 1 rec)
Shockey made two big first down catches on first drive. On the second drive, he made a nice grab while falling into end zone for TD. No catches after that for Shockey, but he made his mark as a receiver early on and then helped pave the way for the 4-headed RBBC for the rest of the game. At one point he left with a knee injury, but did return.
2009 Week 20 vs MIN (2 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey was active despite his injury woes, but his contributions were minimal as he was often replaced by Dave Thomas. Shockey finished the game with just one catch for nine yards on a pass over the middle in the X quarter, after which he came up limping once again. He will have to rest up quite a bit in preparation for the Super Bowl.
2008 Week 1 vs TB (6 / 6 / 54 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey finished with six receptions for 54 yards, and caught all six passes thrown his way. He seems to be fully recovered from his late season injury from 2007 and should be another valuable weapon for QB Drew Brees.
2008 Week 2 vs WAS (3 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Shockey was a seeing a lot of double coverage with Washington linebackers and safeties. It was a rough game for Shockey as he lost a fumble and had another ball glance off of his hands for an interception. It has been a slow start to the year for the new TE.
2008 Week 3 vs DEN (11 / 8 / 75 / 0 rec)
Shockey was busy catching eight passes, despite looking a little less than 100%. He was easily Brees' second favorite target after Bush.
2008 Week 7 vs CAR (7 / 5 / 50 / 0 rec)
Obviously Drew Brees was glad to get Shockey back on the field as he caught five passes to lead all receivers and also lead the team in targets. After his first catch he left the game briefly but quickly returned. He also lost a fumble off a TE screen when Julius Peppers caught him from behind and chopped the ball loose. He's a little rusty but the Saints are a much more dangerous team when he's healthy.
2008 Week 8 vs SD (2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
It's tough to have a quieter game than Shockey had. He wasn't on the field all that much, only coming in to give Billy Miller a break. Shockey did not start in the game, and the other tight ends performed very well in his stead (9-96-1).
2008 Week 10 vs ATL (5 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Shockey started and produced little positive results for the offense. He was removed from the game during the fourth quarter after he dropped two consecutive passes that would have given the Saints either a first down or put them in a short yardage situation. After the first drop, on a third down play, he was seen on the sideline getting an earful from an animated and clearly upset Drew Brees.
2008 Week 11 vs KC (8 / 6 / 39 / 0 rec)
Shockey was New Orleans' second most targeted receiver. However, he was on the sideline in some notable passing situations. Nevertheless, he contributed six receptions for 39 yards. Shockey dropped his other two targets, one of which was not well thrown, but was catchable. Shockey had his 400th career reception in the game. Among tight ends, only Kellen Winslow, Sr. took fewer games to reach 400 catches than Shockey.
2008 Week 12 vs GB (5 / 5 / 57 / 0 rec)
TE Jeremy Shockey provided a big and reliable target over the middle for QB Drew Brees. Shockey did not appear to show any signs of a lingering injury.
2008 Week 13 vs TB (8 / 4 / 52 / 0 rec)
Shockey was targeted nine times and finished with four receptions for 52 yards.
2008 Week 14 vs ATL (6 / 5 / 64 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey made an impact by lining up as a wide out and creating mismatches with defensive personnel. His excellent route running ability allowed him to get into the open part of the defense for deep gains. The holes in the defense were there due to the safeties having to play deep against the threat of the deep ball. Shockey was almost able to connect with Brees on a touchdown pass when he was isolated on a linebacker along the right sideline, but the ball was thrown just a little too high.
2008 Week 15 vs CHI (4 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Shockey did not have a very good game as he dropped a couple of easy passes and caught only one ball for 11 yards.
2008 Week 16 vs DET (7 / 5 / 37 / 0 rec)
Shockey caught five short passes in the first half. His long gain went for 10 yards. He injured his ankle just prior to the two minute warning in the first half and did not return. Shockey was targeted in the end zone on a play action pass from the one yard line, but Brees overthrew the pass slightly.
2007 Week 1 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 41 / 0 rec)
Shockey was effective in the first half, catching five of his six targets. He converted two first downs and dragged defenders with him to gain as many yards as possible on each reception. Manning only went to him once in the second half but the pass was incomplete.
2007 Week 2 vs GB (11 / 5 / 60 / 0 rec)
Giants quarterbacks targeted Shockey early and often. On the Giants first play of the game, Manning hooked up with Shockey for 19 yards. His next catch came late in the second quarter and went for another 19 yards. On that same drive Shockey hauled in a pass that went for 14 yards, but the play was nullified after Shockey was flagged for delay of game when he batted the ball after the play was over. On the very next play Shockey was wide open near the goal line, but Manning's pass hung in the air too long and that allowed a Packers defender to close and Shockey couldn't hang on. On the Giants' last drive of the game, Shockey hauled in two Jared Lorenzen passes for a total of 15 yards.
2007 Week 3 vs WAS (10 / 5 / 79 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey was targeted ten times by quarterback Eli Manning and he managed to grab five balls for 79 total yards. He seemed to get more downfield looks and was targeted on an abnormal number of play action passes, including his long catch of the day that was good for 27 yards.
2007 Week 4 vs PHI (3 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)
Shockey was unable to get involved in the passing game, only being targeted three times. He was used as an effective blocker throughout the game against the Eagles aggressive pass rush, but he only caught one pass.
2007 Week 5 vs NYJ (5 / 2 / 33 / 1 rec)
Shockey managed to grab two of his five targets for 33 yards, 13 of which came on his first touchdown reception of the season.
2007 Week 6 vs ATL (5 / 5 / 63 / 0 rec)
Shockey caught all the passes that came his way in the game. His biggest catch in the first half was a 21 yard pass for a first down in the second quarter. He would add two more receptions for 19 yards in the first half. Shockey's fourth catch of the game was 19 yard reception on the left sideline for a first down. He had one more catch for four yards in the second half.
2007 Week 7 vs SF (6 / 5 / 39 / 1 rec)
Shockey caught the other Manning touchdown pass as he hauled in five of his six targets for 39 yards. He was open much of the day as the middle of the field was very soft allowing the Giants bruising tight end to find enough space to be effective.
2007 Week 8 vs MIA (4 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
Shockey caught three passes for 26 yards, on six total targets. His biggest play of the game came on an Eli Manning pass to the short left side which Shockey was able to gain 21 yards on. Shockey had one drop on the day on a bullet pass, that popped up in the air and was intercepted by a Dolphins defender. That play was nullified by a defensive holding penalty though. The Giants tried short screens to get the ball in Shockey's hands, but had trouble finding him on intermediate routes.
2007 Week 10 vs DAL (14 / 12 / 129 / 1 rec)
Shockey had a season high 14 targets and was able to pull in 12 of them for 129 yards and a score. He was the main target for quarterback Eli Manning and was open down the seam consistently. He now has two touchdowns in his last three games.
2007 Week 11 vs DET (6 / 5 / 41 / 0 rec)
Shockey again was targeted a good amount of times and was able to make the most out of his six targets, as he brought five of them in for 41 total yards. It was his 25th catch in his last four games; Shockey is clearly becoming used more in the New York passing attack.
2007 Week 12 vs MIN (10 / 4 / 44 / 0 rec)
Shockey was not on the same page as Manning at all during the game. Three of Manning's passes to Shockey resulted in touchdowns, however they were Minnesota Vikings touchdowns. Several times Manning threw to Shockey and the ball fell incomplete or was intercepted without Shockey even turning to look for the ball. Manning continued to go to Shockey, though and he finished with 44 yards on four receptions.
2007 Week 13 vs CHI (4 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
Jeremy Shockey caught two passes for 25 yards on five targets in what had to be a disappointing day for the tight end. With Plaxico Burress hobbled and playing at less than full strength, it was Amani Toomer who elevated his game and not Shockey in this one. Shockey was targeted on Eli Manning's first quarter interception on a play that appeared as though Shockey wasn't running the same route Manning expected him to. Later in the game Shockey made a few big plays though, one was a third quarter catch for 18 yards to put the Giants deep in the Bears end of the field. The other came in the fourth quarter on a drawn defensive pass interference penalty that would move the Giants offense into the red zone.
2007 Week 14 vs PHI (6 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Shockey stayed in on a more than usual amount of plays but was only able to see six balls come his way, bringing in only one ball for four yards. He did have a target in the end zone where he was open but Manning missed him.
2007 Week 15 vs WAS (2 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Shockey only had two catches for 18 yards before being hurt when Amani Toomer fell into on top of him in the third quarter. He was carted into the locker room, and it came back as a fractured fibula.
2006 Week 1 vs IND (7 / 5 / 59 / 1 rec)
Shockey was quiet in the first half but started the second half strong with a 15 yard touchdown. He continued to receive looks from Eli Manning and contributed well to the passing game.
2006 Week 2 vs PHI (3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Shockey did not produce much in this game, failing to catch a ball until the fourth quarter. He finished with two short catches of nine and eight yards.
2006 Week 3 vs SEA (6 / 4 / 58 / 0 rec)
Shockey was targeted six times for the game, catching four balls for 58 yards. His ankle did not seem to bother him much during the game, but Shockey was visibly upset on numerous occasions, both on and off the field. Most of his frustration seemed to be with QB Eli Manning, but Shockey was also seen yelling on the sidelines in the direction of coaches.
2006 Week 5 vs WAS (4 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Shockey had a subpar game, only snagging one of the passes thrown his way. He was flagged for offensive pass interference on a nullified touchdown pass to Amani Toomer. Shockey also had an offensive holding penalty.
2006 Week 6 vs ATL (6 / 6 / 55 / 2 rec)
Shockey pulled in six catches for 55 yards and two short touchdowns. He caught all six passes thrown his way.
2006 Week 7 vs DAL (5 / 2 / 23 / 1 rec)
Shockey was not heavily involved in the passing game in the first half. Manning targeted him just once in the half at the one yard line, but the ball was uncatchable. Shockey's role increased in the second half and he scored on the Giants' opening possession after making a 13 yard catch. Shockey caught a ten yard pass for a first down on the next possession. He again managed to finish the game, dispelling any fears about his fitness.
2006 Week 8 vs TB (10 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec)
Shockey had three catches for 15 yards. Manning looked his way five times on third/fourth down pass plays. He dropped a couple of passes that hit him in the hands.
2006 Week 9 vs HOU (10 / 8 / 66 / 1 rec)
Shockey had eight catches for 66 yards and a touchdown. With Burress out, he was Manning's favorite target, getting ten looks. The Houston defense was rarely able to stop Shockey in this game. He got drilled on a pass at the goal line that knocked the ball loose. Right before he got his second foot down, he was nailed and when he hit the ground, the ball popped out.
2006 Week 10 vs CHI (2 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Shockey didn't receive any targets until the second half. His first catch of the game temporarily sparked the Giants' offense, leading to their only score of the second half. Shockey appears to have the ability to be an emotional leader for the Giants.
2006 Week 11 vs JAX (13 / 7 / 82 / 0 rec)
Shockey saw just three targets in the first half due to the Giants' inability to move the ball. He dropped the first pass thrown in his direction and then made catches of seven yards and 10 yards. Shockey saw ten targets in the second half but the first four were incomplete. One was in the end zone but was well defended, giving Shockey no chance. Shockey gained 21 yards on third and 15 on the Giants' fourth possession of the half, but a Manning interception ended the drive. Shockey was able to make four more catches including first downs for 17 yards and 13 yards, but every drive broke down. Shockey was visibly angry on the sidelines throughout the game as the Jaguars frustrated the Giants' offense.
2006 Week 12 vs TEN (7 / 5 / 39 / 0 rec)
Shockey was reported to have suffered a compound dislocation of his left ring finger in pre-game warm-ups. The injury, however, did not appear to slow Shockey. He was highly involved in the Giants' offense early in the game; though his role in the game tailed off as the Giants went to a run-oriented attack in the second half. He finished with five catches for 39 total yards.
2006 Week 13 vs DAL (9 / 6 / 65 / 1 rec)
Shockey had a good game versus Dallas. He is the spark for New York and they got him involved early in the game. He caught the first touchdown of the game on a 17 yard pass play. Manning avoided the rush, rolled out to the left and found Shockey in the left side of the end zone. Shockey picked up four first downs and touchdown on five of his six catches. Manning tried to hit Shockey for a touchdown on their 17 play drive in the third quarter. The pass was incomplete on a third and five at the Dallas five yard line.
2006 Week 14 vs CAR (12 / 6 / 49 / 1 rec)
Shockey saw a heavy dose of targets near the end of the first half, but two were not passes that could be caught as QB Eli Manning was throwing the ball away. Just before halftime he got open down the middle making a 25 yard reception on a post pattern beating a linebacker one on one. A few plays later he pulled in a short touchdown pass across the back of the end zone after Manning scrambled to the left side of the field. Shockey made a good hustle play just before that play picking up a fumble by RB Brandon Jacobs on the goal line.
2006 Week 15 vs PHI (14 / 8 / 70 / 0 rec)
Shockey was heavily involved throughout the game. He was the intended target on Manning's first interception, but the ball was tipped before it ever reached him. Shockey caught two passes for short gains in the first half before gaining 14 yards on the final drive of the half to put the Giants in field goal range. Shockey was targeted ten times in the second half alone. He caught five of them, including four for first downs. Shockey was targeted in the end zone twice. He caught the first just out of bounds and drew a pass interference penalty after being held on the second.
2006 Week 16 vs NO (7 / 2 / -3 / 0 rec)
Shockey saw his first target on the first play of the second Giants series. They set up a tight end screen for him, but he was caught deep in the backfield for a seven yard loss. QB Eli Manning looked to Shockey more than any other receiver in the game, but they couldn't connect as Manning was off target on most of his throws. However, just before halftime Shockey had a ball hit him square in the hands on a fourth and two play, but dropped the pass in the right flat killing the drive. Shockey was the target of Manning's interception at the end of the game. He was open for a moment running a deep out on the left sideline, but the pass from Manning was late, overthrown, and behind him.
2006 Week 18 vs PHI (6 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)
Shockey showed why he is such a formidable competitor in the Wild Card game against the Eagles. He was limping and gimpy all game on a weak ankle, yet he toughed out the entire game to catch three of six targets for a combined 25 yards. All three of his catches (and all his targets) came in the first half. Shockey showed his true grit when he caught a pass over the middle, took two hits and lost his helmet, yet fought forward for a few more yards before getting finally tackled to the ground.
2005 Week 1 vs ARI (2 / 2 / 29 / 1 rec)
Shockey caught a 20 yard Eli Manning strike as he beat his man for a touchdown on the Giant's first drive. He had one other catch for nine yards. Late in the game while blocking, Shockey had his leg rolled upon and appeared to suffer a sprained foot or ankle. He did not return to the game and was visibly upset on the sideline. He stayed in uniform on the sidelines and ran off the field with his team after the game. He was favoring his ankle but was able to jog.
2005 Week 2 vs NO (6 / 5 / 64 / 0 rec)
Shockey caught back to back passes to gain a combined 26 yards during the Giants' second drive. He made a 20 yard reception that set up Tiki Barber's 12 yard touchdown run.
2005 Week 3 vs SD (9 / 6 / 101 / 0 rec)
Shockey looks to have excellent chemistry with Eli Manning. Manning trusts Shockey and delivers him the ball in places where he can make good catches. He had a phenomenal grab between and over two defenders in the early going. He also had a deep pass hit him in the facemask and fall incomplete while open.
2005 Week 4 vs STL (10 / 4 / 57 / 1 rec)
Shockey had ten passes thrown in his direction, but it never appeared that both he and QB Eli Manning were exactly on the same page. Shockey was open at times, yet the ball was not delivered in the right spot. On other occasions, Shockey was the intended receiver yet he was double covered or draped by a defender. In the first quarter, Shockey dove for a pass in the end zone and had it tick off of his fingertips for an incompletion. For his other five targets, he was double covered twice, draped by DB Adam Archuleta once, and hardly in the area of the ball on his final two targets. Shockey may also have been the intended receiver on another instance in the fourth quarter. He was running across the back of the end zone when the ball fell a few yards in front of him, over the head of TE Visanthe Shiancoe. Shiancoe was given the target officially, but the ball was just as close to a wide open Shockey as it was to the inexperienced Shiancoe
2005 Week 6 vs DAL (10 / 5 / 129 / 1 rec)
Shockey did not catch a pass in the first half; he was targeted twice. In the second half, Shockey became the focus of the Giants' offense. 129 of Eli Manning's 183 passing yards after halftime went to Shockey. He scored the only Giants' touchdown. His receptions went for 14, 59, 18, 14 and 24 yards. The final reception sent the game into overtime.
2005 Week 7 vs DEN (7 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec)
Shockey's involvement in the offense dropped as a whole as the game went on, but he still grabbed a key reception on the game winning drive. Shockey's 24 yard reception into the Denver red zone afforded the Giants four plays from inside the ten (and also salvaged a respectable stat line for Shockey in the process). Shockey lost eight receiving yards after one of his receptions was negated due to a Giants' penalty.
2005 Week 8 vs WAS (6 / 3 / 29 / 1 rec)
Shockey had no catches on only one target in the first half, but he added three catches on 5 additional targets in the second half. One of those catches was for a ten yard touchdown on the opening drive of the second half. Shockey was the recipient of a vicious hit from Sean Taylor late in the third quarter, and appeared shaken up immediately afterwards, but late in the game appeared fine. He didn't play in the fourth quarter because of the big lead.
2005 Week 9 vs SF (8 / 4 / 77 / 1 rec)
All of Shockey's receptions came in the first half. He had a 28 yard catch on the Giants' first play of the game. His 32 yard touchdown catch was a beautiful diving grab that came on a fourth and one play late in the second quarter on a ball that was overthrown by Eli Manning. Shockey frequently lined up in the slot and even lined up out wide a couple of times.
2005 Week 10 vs MIN (9 / 5 / 55 / 0 rec)
Shockey had receptions of 12, 5, 19, 11, and 8 yards. His final two receptions came during the Giants' game tying drive late in the fourth quarter. Four of Shockey's five receptions netted first downs. However, the Vikings did a good job of keeping Shockey from being a deciding factor in the game.
2005 Week 11 vs PHI (2 / 1 / 1 / 1 rec)
Shockey almost saw his 48 consecutive games with a reception streak come to an end, as he failed to catch a ball in the first half. Finally in the fourth quarter he caught his only catchable target, and he made the most of the reception. Shockey got open for QB Eli Manning and caught a one yard touchdown.
2005 Week 12 vs SEA (15 / 10 / 127 / 1 rec)
Shockey recovered from last week's single catch, one yard outing with a huge game. He fumbled his first half touchdown catch after taking a huge hit, but the play survived a booth review and his touchdown was recorded. He also caught the game tying two point conversion that sent the game into overtime. Shockey finished as the team's leading receiver with ten catches for 127 yards.
2005 Week 13 vs DAL (6 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
After his 127 yard performance last week, Shockey caught just two passes in the game for 20 yards. Shockey did have an end zone target in the second quarter but the pass was well overthrown by Manning.
2005 Week 14 vs PHI (19 / 10 / 107 / 0 rec)
Shockey made a catch on the first play of the game, and continued to be very heavily involved in the Giants' offense thereafter. Shockey made huge catches all over the field, and was critical to the Giants' success on this day. He was targeted multiple times in the red zone, but was unable to score a touchdown. On one series he was tackled at the Philadelphia four, then targeted on a fade route but Manning overthrew the ball badly.
2005 Week 15 vs KC (8 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)
Shockey caught just three balls for 33 total yards despite eight chances. However, only his first chance that fell incomplete could be attributed as his fault. Shockey was open more than three times, but the ball was once overthrown and another pass was tipped at the line. He caught two passes in the second quarter for 24 total yards, and later added a nine yard catch in the third quarter.
2005 Week 16 vs WAS (5 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Shockey left the game with an injury, but returned later. Oddly, he ended up being the Giants' second most productive tight end in the game.
