Note: I’ll update the snap counts in this spreadsheet all season including the first tab tracking the season totals. While I’ll paste individual game PT in each week’s recap, I’ll likely refer to the season totals moving forward from that link. So uh, peep it.
TE Lance Kendricks hit a season low on Sunday dropping below 85%. The extra snaps didn’t go to TE Tyler Higbee or DEATHSERGEANT Cory Harkey.
Instead, most of them went to the WRs. Kenny Britt logged his second-highest playing time share. Brian Quick hit a season high. Bradley Marquez notched his second-highest. The Rams went heavy in the passing game with 53 passes to 20 rushes and needed the wideouts to make that happen.
On the flip side, RB Just Todd Gurley hit his second-lowest work rate of the year. His lowest rate of the year was the Week 1 blowout in San Francisco.
Well, we’ve got another snap count discrepancy courtesy of the NFL. There must have been a phantom snap on which the Rams’ defensive core didn’t play...
In any case, DT Aaron Donald hit a season high. In three of the Rams’ first four games, Donald came in under 80% of defensive snaps. He’s topped that mark in each of the last three.
The rest of the line? I hot bowl of rotational mess. Might be an opportune moment to point out the Rams failed to log a sack and have just three across this three-game losing streak...
Starting to wonder if Troy Hill and Marqui Christian are legit shots to make the 53-man in 2017. They’re definitely getting tons of opportunity, though Hill’s has also come at corner with the injuries early to E.J. Gaines and Trumaine Johnson as of late.
As always, drop your observations on the playing time from this week as well as anything you’re seeing from the season snaps.
