Gonna post some season-long thoughts in a bit, but I'll note here that LT Greg Robinson was the only offensive player to play every snap in 2015.

Tavon hit his third-highest play rate yesterday. Britt, meanwhile, jumped from 41.51% against Seattle up to 78.87% this week. Marquez topped 40% for the third time.

For the fourth game in a row, Kendricks got more time than Cook...

Defense

Trumaine Johnson CB 82 100.00%
Maurice Alexander SS 82 100.00%
Mark Barron SS 82 100.00%
Rodney McLeod FS 82 100.00%
James Laurinaitis LB 82 100.00%
Janoris Jenkins CB 81 98.78%
Aaron Donald DT 74 90.24%
Eugene Sims DE 57 69.51%
Michael Brockers DT 54 65.85%
Lamarcus Joyner CB 52 63.41%
William Hayes DE 48 58.54%
Akeem Ayers LB 37 45.12%
Chris Long DE 34 41.46%
Ethan Westbrooks DT 30 36.59%
Matt Longacre DE 25 30.49%

Aaron Donald didn't top 90% of the defensive snaps in the first 14 games. He did in both of the last two. Fisher trying to get him that DPOY much?

Maurice Alexander took every snap in each of the last four games.

Gonna be interesting to look back at this with the coming personnel changes to the secondary this offseason.

Where is the wiggle room here? The Rams have built up this core over years. Is this the year guys like Cody Davis or Chase Reynolds or Daren Bates make way? Or maybe it's the opposite. Christian Bryant was on and off the roster early on. Maybe Bryce Hager and Cameron Lynch aren't all that vital to the long-term interests?
