WR Bobby Wade - Free Agent
|5-10, 193||Born: 2-25-1981||College: Arizona||Drafted: Round 5, pick 0|
2009 Week 2 vs OAK (9 / 6 / 72 / 0 rec)
You have never known that Wade was signed just last week by the Chiefs. He was Cassel's security blanket on underneath crossing patterns, and he made his targets count. Wade found the dead spots in the zone in the middle of the field, and generally showed good timing and chemistry with Cassel, especially on a play action pass when Wade was exactly where Cassel expected him to be downfield. He looks like Cassel's favorite target to move the sticks, and he also got a red zone target.
2009 Week 3 vs PHI (4 / 2 / 13 / 1 rec)
Bobby Wade stepped into a starting role in Week 3 against Philadelphia due to Dwayne Bowe's injury. Wade had a late catch for a meaningless touchdown in the final two minutes of the game, but he likely will have even less production once Bowe returns to the lineup. Do not even bother adding him to your fantasy roster.
2009 Week 4 vs NYG (5 / 2 / 8 / 1 rec)
Bobby Wade played more than usual once again thanks to both Dwayne Bowe not being at full strength and also due to the big deficit on the scoreboard. He had five targets but did not do much with them. He'll likely head back to special teams and backup duties with Dwayne Bowe getting stronger and both Mark Bradley and Bobby Engram doing more with their chances.
2009 Week 5 vs DAL (8 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)
Wade didn't have much of an effect on this game until the desperation fourth quarter drive, when he caught a 25-yard pass over the middle to convert a third-and-14 to get the Chiefs into Cowboys territory. He was open over the middle on a play in the first half, but Cassel didn't put any touch on the fireball pass and the play resulted in an incompletion.
2009 Week 6 vs WAS (4 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
Bobby Wade started for Kansas City and had three short catches for the Chiefs in Week 6 against Washington, highlighted by a modest 16-yard gain in the second quarter. As with any wideout not named Bowe, he has no fantasy value.
2009 Week 7 vs SD (8 / 4 / 66 / 0 rec)
Wade allowed a pass to hit him in the head (it was that kind of a day for Kansas City), but made up for it shortly after with a nice move after the catch to pick up a first down. He was also able to haul in a couple of nice plays in the third quarter during the brief moments in the game when Matt Cassel was afforded a little bit of time. One of the catches was a big gain down the sideline on a ball thrown over his shoulder, but like most of the Chief receivers the quantity of passes headed his way left a lot to be desire.
2009 Week 11 vs PIT (6 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec, 1 / 8 / 0 rush)
Wade seemed to be the favorite target of Matt Cassel early in the game, but was not able to capitalize on the opportunity. He only made one catch in the second half, but it was in the red zone. Overall, he did nothing to distinguish himself, good or bad.
2009 Week 12 vs SD (5 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
Wade hauled in an early 12-yard reception along the sideline on third and long, but added just one more reception the rest of the game.
2009 Week 13 vs DEN (12 / 4 / 36 / 0 rec)
Wade could have had a much bigger day, but when he found himself wide open down the middle of the field, he couldn't catch the deep pass from Cassel. It was a blown coverage by Champ Bailey where he let Wade run by him while he stopped on a shorter route. Wade was streaking down the field but tried to haul in the pass with one hand, instead of diving with two hands after the ball. On the sidelines he got into a screaming match with head coach Todd Haley, and seemed frustrated the rest of the game.
2009 Week 14 vs BUF (6 / 4 / 34 / 0 rec)
Wade was the recipient of a handful of Cassel's throws close to the line of scrimmage that resulted in the meager gains. He also converted a third-and-long in the fourth quarter would-be comeback drive, but his role will shrink with the return of Dwayne Bowe next week.
2009 Week 16 vs CIN (3 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Wade worked out of the slot and was targeted just three times. He made a nice play to come back and catch a slightly underthrown ball on a slow developing out route just before halftime and rolled out of bounds to stop the clock.
2009 Week 17 vs DEN (5 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Wade only hauled in one pass on Sunday, but once again he and head coach Todd Haley were yelling at each other on the sidelines. Near the end of the 3rd quarter with Matt Cassel working out of the shotgun Bobby Wade was targeted with a short pass on the right side of the field. Wade slipped when running his route, and the pass was easily intercepted by Ty Law. The veteran cornerback returned the ball to the Chiefs 3-yard line, and the Broncos scored a touchdown three plays later to pull within three points. Wade and Haley had to be separated from each other after the interception on the Chiefs sideline.
2008 Week 3 vs CAR (6 / 3 / 35 / 0 rec)
Wade started in the place of injured Sidney Rice and led all wide receivers in targets with six. All three of his receptions resulted in Minnesota first downs.
2008 Week 4 vs TEN (7 / 7 / 75 / 0 rec)
With fellow wide receiver, and former starter, Sidney Rice still nursing an ailing knee, Wade received the start and took advantage of the opportunity as he hauled in all seven of his targets in the active Vikings passing game, six of them in the second half. While he was initially used to run shorter routes, as the game progressed and the Vikings continued to trail, Wade was sent downfield and hauled in two consecutive completions in the fourth quarter of 15 and 23 yards respectively. Wade was effective enough that Rice, who saw only two targets even though he was active for the game.
2008 Week 5 vs NO (11 / 8 / 64 / 0 rec)
Wade saw a ton of targets, most coming in the second half. He is basically responsible for getting Frerotte into a rhythm, catching eight of the 11 balls thrown his way.
2008 Week 6 vs DET (6 / 4 / 71 / 0 rec)
Wade was used mostly on shorter routes, and a couple of intermediate routes. He ran them precisely, getting open and showing good ability to run in the open field.
2008 Week 7 vs CHI (8 / 5 / 60 / 0 rec)
Wade caught five of his eight targets for 60 yards. His key catch of the afternoon came on a fourth and 14 play where he got open down the sideline and caught a pass for a 19 yard gain.
2008 Week 9 vs HOU (4 / 3 / 16 / 0 rec)
Bobby Wade was used again in some short receptions. There were only eighteen passing attempts total. There just wasn't a lot more Wade could do.
2008 Week 10 vs GB (9 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)
Bobby Wade was the most targeted by he also had the most drops today. He seemed to catch Visanthe Shiancoe's bug today and made some crucial drops. He only caught three balls and should have easily had twice as many. He did have one nice catch that he had to reach up to get.
2008 Week 11 vs TB (4 / 2 / 12 / 1 rec)
Wade was targeted five times and finished with two receptions for 12 yards, including a four yard touchdown reception on a third and goal play.
2008 Week 13 vs CHI (3 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
WR Bobby Wade was targeted once in the end zone but the pas fell incomplete.
2008 Week 14 vs DET (3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Wade caught just two passes, both of them fairly short looks. But the second reception came on a critical third down and four as Minnesota was trying to run time off the clock. Wade showed exceptional hands in reaching out in front of him to haul in a very tough catch and extend the drive. Had he not made the play, the Lions would have gotten the ball back with just under four minutes left in the fourth quarter, down by just one. As it stands, Detroit didn't get the ball back until 27 seconds remained in the contest following a tack-on field goal by the Vikings.
2008 Week 15 vs ARI (3 / 2 / 67 / 1 rec)
Wade was the Vikings' leading receiver and scored on a crucial 59 yard touchdown catch to end a Cardinals comeback in the second half.
2008 Week 16 vs ATL (7 / 5 / 38 / 0 rec)
Bobby Wade made some very good catches in traffic today. He was used many times on possession receptions. All of his targets were on short routes and his yards were minimal.
2008 Week 17 vs NYG (6 / 4 / 98 / 0 rec)
Bobby Wade had his most impressive performance of the year. He was targeted twice deep. He took a short pass for over ten yards making moves and breaking a tackle. He also fought hard for the ball and made a great catch at the sideline.
2008 Week 18 vs PHI (7 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)
Wade finished with just three receptions for 24 yards but was targeted seven times.
2007 Week 1 vs ATL (4 / 1 / 28 / 0 rec)
Wade finished with just one reception and 28 yards. He was targeted four times, but was not consistently looked for by Tarvaris Jackson. However, Jackson spread the ball around so much that Wade's 28 yards was the highest total for any Vikings wide receiver or tight end.
2007 Week 2 vs DET (7 / 5 / 34 / 0 rec, 1 / -9 / 0 rush)
Wade is the de facto number one receiver in Minnesota, but that number one status is certainly a relative term. As long as Tarvaris Jackson plays the way he did in this game, the number one receiver from this team is going to have a tough time doing enough to even make himself roster-worthy, let alone starting lineup-worthy. Wade turned seven targets into five receptions for 34 yards, and was never put in a position to make a game-breaking play.
2007 Week 3 vs KC (7 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec)
Wade was a frequent target for Holcomb, but their timing did not seem to be in tune. His first target was a short pass and Wade made the first defender miss with a nice spin move and turned it up field for a first down. Wade also had another five yard reception called back by an illegal shift penalty.
2007 Week 4 vs GB (7 / 5 / 83 / 0 rec)
Wade was the second most targeted receiver for Holcomb on the afternoon. Wade managed to pull in five of his eight targets, including one of the rare successful deep passes for the Vikings on the season. Wade beat his defender and got a step behind him, and Holcomb hit him in stride for a 40 yard gain. Wade also had a nice 18 yard reception late in the game, but otherwise was targeted mostly on short routes. He finished with career highs in both receptions (six) and yards (75).
2007 Week 6 vs CHI (7 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Wade was the most targeted Vikings receiver, though was used primarily on short passes over the middle and along the sideline.
2007 Week 7 vs DAL (4 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Wade finished with just 16 yards on his lone receptions. Like all Vikings receivers, Wade was hurt by Tarvaris Jackson's inability to accurately throw the ball downfield.
2007 Week 8 vs PHI (7 / 4 / 53 / 0 rec)
Wade was the most frequently targeted wide receiver for the Vikings. He also led the team with his 53 yards.
2007 Week 10 vs GB (3 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)
Wade, the Vikings' leading receiver entering the game, was not targeted until the third quarter. Wade hauled in two of the three balls thrown his way and finished with just 29 yards. He also negated his own 11 yard reception with a pass interference penalty.
2007 Week 11 vs OAK (5 / 5 / 45 / 0 rec)
On Wade's first catch of the game, he put the ball on the turf and the fumble was recovered by Oakland. He went on to catch the remainder of his four targets for a total of 41 yards.
2007 Week 12 vs NYG (2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Wade converted both of his targets into receptions, but finished with just 14 yards. The Vikings did not look to throw often, and Wade was not the first option most of the game.
2007 Week 13 vs DET (6 / 4 / 54 / 1 rec)
Wade was a primary benefactor from the improved play of Tarvaris Jackson. Instead of the normal shorter passing routes Wade has made his living on this season, Wade was able to run several deeper routes, and Jackson was able to hit him in stride. Wade's touchdown came on a short second and goal play. Jackson could not find a receiver, and finally looked back toward Wade who was open right at the end zone line.
2007 Week 15 vs CHI (7 / 6 / 70 / 0 rec)
Wade was open all night and had good chemistry with Jackson. He is clearly the favorite target in this offense.
2007 Week 16 vs WAS (4 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec)
Wade had a fairly unexciting night, catching three of the five balls passed his way for a total of 34 yards.
2007 Week 17 vs DEN (8 / 5 / 92 / 2 rec)
Wade had a good game, hauling in five of his eight targets for 92 yards and two touchdowns. He made three of his catches, and both of his touch downs in the fourth quarter.
2006 Week 1 vs NYJ (7 / 5 / 76 / 0 rec)
Wade was second on the Titans in targets, receptions, and yardage and set career highs in receptions and receiving yards. His receptions went for seven, 25, 16, 13, and 15 yards. Wade was targeted by Vince Young on Tennessee's first two point conversion attempt. He also returned three kicks for 75 yards.
2006 Week 2 vs SD (7 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wade caught no passes, but was tied with Brandon Jones as the top target of Vince Young. After failing to record a reception, that may change going forward.
2006 Week 3 vs MIA (2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Wade had two receptions for 17 yards.
2006 Week 4 vs DAL (4 / 3 / 45 / 0 rec)
Wade had a 24 yard catch in the second quarter and made a nifty run after the catch to pick extra yards. He led the Titans in receiving with 45 yards.
2006 Week 5 vs IND (4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wade was unable to catch any of the four passes thrown to him. In the fourth quarter, after Indianapolis took the lead, he returned the ensuing kickoff 48 yards to set up the Titans in Colts' territory with five minutes left in the game.
2006 Week 6 vs WAS (2 / 2 / 36 / 0 rec)
Wade caught both of his first half targets. Neither was spectacular or special in any way.
2006 Week 8 vs HOU (3 / 2 / 30 / 1 rec)
Wade caught his first career touchdown in the second quarter on a 20 yard strike from Vince Young. He finished the game as Tennessee's leading receiver with 30 yards.
2006 Week 9 vs JAX (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wade had a forgettable game, dropping two of his targets that were catchable passes, including one that would have kept a Titans' drive alive.
2006 Week 10 vs BAL (3 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Wade caught one pass for 18 yards, and was thrown to twice in the game.
2006 Week 11 vs PHI (3 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Wade caught his third target for 18 yards and a first down in the second quarter. His first target was nearly intercepted by Eagles S Brian Dawkins. Wade's second target was uncatchable, as the ball hit the ground well before it got close to Wade.
2006 Week 12 vs NYG (7 / 6 / 83 / 0 rec)
Wade had only 16 receptions on the season coming into this game, but emerged as Young's favorite receiver against the Giants. He tallied 83 yards on six receptions, as Young seemed to look towards Wade in clutch situations. Although he did not score, Wade was targeted on a deep go route that would have been a touchdown had he been able to hang on.
2006 Week 13 vs IND (1 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Wade caught one pass for 18 yards on the only ball thrown his way.
2006 Week 14 vs HOU (2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Wade caught both of his targets for a total of 17 yards. He returned four kickoffs for 110 yards.
2006 Week 15 vs JAX (4 / 3 / 48 / 0 rec)
Wade was the most targeted Titans' receiver, and seemed to be in sync with Young. The only target he did not catch was a deep pass that was thrown a little behind him. He showed good speed and route-running abilities on the plays where he was the primary option.
2006 Week 16 vs BUF (1 / 1 / 22 / 1 rec)
Wade made the most of his limited opportunity, catching the only pass thrown to him for a 22 yard touchdown.
2006 Week 17 vs NE (5 / 4 / 33 / 0 rec)
Wade caught four passes for 33 yards, but was involved in a play that may impact the Patriots in the playoffs. Wade was slotted out to the right as Travis Henry ran a stretch play to his side. Wade went up field to block Rodney Harrison, but Harrison suffered a knee injury on the play. It was a legal block where Wade went low on Harrison. Harrison felt it was a cheap shot but it was easily a legal play. This was not a crack back block. Wade went straight after Harrison, squared up to block him, and blocked him straight on about the level of his thighs.
2005 Week 2 vs DET (2 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Wade made a huge impact in the return game, running back a punt 73 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. He was targeted twice on third down passes, but one was batted down at the line of scrimmage and the other was well short of the first down. Orton did not look in his direction in the red zone.
2005 Week 3 vs CIN (7 / 4 / 47 / 0 rec)
All of Wade's action came in the second half, predominantly during garbage time. His only target of the first half resulted in an interception, and Orton didn't look to him again until the second half rolled around. Fumbling three times, losing one, certainly won't help him get any more playing time.
2005 Week 5 vs CLE (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wade was targeted in the fourth quarter.
2005 Week 6 vs MIN (1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Wade had just one catch for four yards in the passing game. He made a greater contribution in the return game with a 49 yard punt return that led to the Bears' first touchdown.
2005 Week 7 vs BAL (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wade was targeted three times but did not record a catch. One of the balls in his direction was very catchable and dropped.
2005 Week 8 vs DET (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wade was not a factor in the game, he was only targeted twice.
2005 Week 9 vs NO (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Wade is more of a return man, but is seeing more time at WR with the injuries to Bernard Berrian and Mark Bradley. He was only targeted twice, and one of the attempts resulted in an interception after he tipped the ball.
2005 Week 10 vs SF (2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Wade nearly lost this game for the Bears by causing three turnovers in the punt return game. One of the muffs resulted in the 49ers getting first down and goal from the two yard line. He did catch one pass for 11 yards on his two targets. His reception set up the Bears' field goal that gave them an eight point lead.
2005 Week 11 vs CAR (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wade was used sparingly in three wide sets and was targeted only once.
2005 Week 12 vs TB (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wade was targeted only once and did not catch a pass in the game. He also fumbled the ball on a punt return, but the ball was recovered by the Bears.
2005 Week 13 vs GB (2 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
Wade was targeted on two third down pass plays, catching one for only three yards. He also regained his punt returning job during the game. His opportunities are limited by the return of Bernard Berrian from an injury.
2005 Week 14 vs PIT (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Wade had a five yard reception.
2005 Week 16 vs MIA (2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Wade caught the only two passes thrown his way for 14 yards and was not used much in the game.
2005 Week 17 vs JAX (3 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)
Backup wide receiver, Bobby Wade led the Titans' wide receivers with two catches for 26 yards. Wade did have an end zone target in the fourth quarter as he almost made a spectacular grab after the defender deflected the ball but could not manage to hold on.
