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.

So Cody Wichmann over Jamon Brown...when did that happen? I mean, we know it happened this week, but what went down? Last week was a rotational play, which you thought would have been more appropriate for the preseason, but whatev. Strange to be surprised like this.

Just Todd Gurley topped 70% this week. Last week, he hit 37 snaps and 17 carries leading Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher to rest him during the first practice of the week. After 44 snaps and 19 carries yesterday, is he due for another day off? Is this going to become the norm?

A bit more work for WRs Bradley Marquez and Mike Thomas this week. How does this rotation look once Pharoh Cooper and Nelson Spruce come off the injury report?

The Coty Sensabaugh-Troy Hill swap at cornerback...not only was it a huge decision, but it worked.

D-line rotation looked pretty standard.

I pointed out last week the lack of a linebacker available to beef up the defense, so shout out to Josh Forrest for making his NFL debut.

Any time you keep your opponent to 3 points, you did a damn fine job as a crew.

One thing to keep an eye on with injuries likely factoring in the mix soon is the waterfall effect here.

You already got a sense of that with the Sensabaugh/Hill swap. Once Hill went in the game at CB, his special teams slot got backfilled. With some changes on the position depth chart coming, that will have an effect with specials. And expect some practice squad shifting as the 53-man changes in the next month.

What jumps out to you from the playing time in Week 2? Anything you’d like to see next week like the Josh Forrest package sub?
