    Evans needs to take more snaps

  3. #3
    Week 1, Baltimore



    Snap count takeaways:
    • Although he is listed as the starting running back, Jeremy Hill received the least snaps of the Bengals’ three-man rotation at the position (10). Joe Mixon (22) and Giovani Bernard(29) both saw significantly more action, although Hill (4.3 yards per carry) significantly out-performed Mixon on the ground (1.1 yards per carry).
    • Cody Core and Alex Erickson both received a fair number of offensive snaps, but neither was targeted in the passing game. Erickson did contribute as the Bengals’ only kick/punt returner, but Core was unable to find any way to contribute statistically.
    • T.J. Johnson found a significant amount of playing time following Trey Hopkins’ second-quarter knee injury. Hopkins looked to be on pace to hold down the starting right guard job before his injury. Alex Redmond is listed as Hopkins’ backup on the Bengals’ official depth chart, although he was inactive on Sunday. He could potentially see more time on the active roster if Hopkins’ injury is serious.
    • The Bengals’ offensive line looked awful on Sunday, allowing five sacks and supporting an ineffective running game. However, Clint Boling, Jake Fisher, Cedric Ogbuehi, and Russell Bodine still played 100 percent of the team’s snaps. Only the right guard position saw lineup changes, largely due to Hopkins’ injury.
    • Darqueze Dennard had an intriguing day. He was effective in pass coverage, recording four tackles and a pass deflection. But, perhaps the most notable stat was the 98 percent of defensive snaps he played against the Ravens.
    • Defensive end Chris Smith continues to impress at defensive end. He only recorded a single tackle on the day (for a loss), but he played more snaps (28) than any other defensive end on the team other than Carlos Dunlap (55). Both Jordan Willis (26) and Michael Johnson (24) saw less playing time than the former Jaguars practice squad member, though Johnson suffered a stinger and possible concussion that kept him out for the second half.
    • Although they are listed as playing zero snaps on the chart, Derron Smith and Cethan Carter both contributed on special teams. Clark Harris, Kevin Huber, and Randy Bullockalso saw snaps, although they are exclusively special teams players.

    • Andrew Billings appears to be the Bengals’ last choice at defensive tackle. Despite the hype surrounding a player who was once considered a potential first-round pick in 2016, he seems to be off the starting track. He lost his rookie season to a torn meniscus, but many thought he had a chance to take over Domata Peko’s vacated starting role in 2017. Instead, Pat Sims has been receiving the most snaps next to Geno Atkins, while Ryan Glasgowhas also been receiving significantly more.
    • There seems to be no stopping the unexpected rise of defensive end Chris Smith. For the second week in a row, the player whom the Bengals paid a conditional seventh-round pick was on the field for around half of the defensive snaps. In the process, he recorded six tackles and a sack.
    • Despite seeing some time on special teams, William Jackson III did not play any snaps on defense, despite playing 44 percent last week. This is likely due to the return of Adam Jones and the continued solid play of Darqueze Dennard. But, the complete lack of snaps for a former first round draft pick is still notable.
    • In addition to Jackson, Hardy Nickerson Jr, Jordan Evans, Clayton Fejedelem, and Cethan Carter all saw playing time on special teams, despite not seeing any snaps on offense or defense.
    • John Ross, the ninth-overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft, played a whopping five snaps. The Bengals drafted him to help upgrade an offense that badly needed it, but they’re not giving him enough chances to do so.
    • If you haven’t noticed already, the Bengals are relying heavily on veteran players over youngsters that deserve more playing time. There’s no excuse for Jackson, Ross and Cody Core (7 snaps) to play that little. Mixon also needs more touches, and with the o-line being so bad, guys like Redmond and Christian Westerman deserve some snaps as well. Hopefully, we see the young guys play more against the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

    Snap count takeaways:


    • Joe Mixon becomes the feature back. After Giovani Bernard had dominated the majority of snaps it seems that Bill Lazor was given the green light to unleash the rookie. Mixon got most of the snaps (34), and compared to Bernard (13) and Jeremy Hill (14), it is clear the future is now at the tailback position as Mixon finished with 101 total yards on 21 touches. Bernard was the one who ended up catching the touchdown pass early in the first quarter though on a missed assignment from the Packers.
    • Jackson finally gets a chance. The weather on Sunday in Green Bay was unbearable, which led to the Bengals rotating their corners a little bit. Jackson came in for Adam Jones, and he got beat on a flea flicker. However, he came back and returned an interception for a touchdown. It was only Rodgers’ second pick-six of his career. Curiously enough though it didn’t get Jackson many more snaps (14).
    • Andre Smith got in the mix at tackle. The Bengals claim due to the weather that they decided to rotate their offensive tackles on Sunday. Smith got his first snaps at tackle (26), which was unusual because Cedric Ogbuehi (49) and Jake Fisher (47) both had played every snap the past few games. It is hard to actually determine if this will become a trend, or if it was because of the weather as the team says. For what it’s worth Russell Bodine, T.J. Johnson and Clint Boling played every snap Sunday.
    • Tyler Boyd shared the third receiver role. The Bengals without Tyler Eifert or John Rosshad a lot of offensive firepower to fill in. Boyd was a healthy scratch last week, which led to Alex Erickson receiving more snaps in the slot. While Boyd was out there more this week (30) Erickson (13) and Cody Core (5) also kicked in a few plays.
    • The Bengals changed it up with the defensive line. Pat Sims was essentially benched only appearing on a few plays (10). Most of this could be due to Michael Johnson playing plenty of defensive tackle. Johnson was out there most of the game (57), but he spent most of his time in the middle of the defensive line. This could’ve been due to Carl Lawson bursting onto the scene with 2.5 sacks (technically 3.5, but one was called back because of a penalty.) Lawson was rewarded with plenty of playing time (55), but it also took snaps away from Chris Smith (22) and Jordan Willis (13) each seeing significantly less playing time.
    • Nick Vigil has played every snap (70) the past two weeks for the Bengals on defense. It is clear the Bengals like him over Kevin Minter (13) for the nickel linebacker position. The team also relied on Vincent Rey (61) for the last week of Vontaze Burfict’s suspension.
    • The Bengals did a lot this week in terms of getting new guys out there, and it will be interesting to see if they continue to change things up with players who aren’t performing up to snuff. It’d also be nice for them to reward more young productive players like Jackson.

    Hewitt and Bernard need to see more snaps

    I like Hewitt, but I'm not sure Lazor does. Clearly, Zamp never could figure out a role for him... but he was a Hue favorite.

    Interesting that last week, Uzomah lined up at FB on some snaps. Will be interesting to see if that continues, and how snap counts for Hewitt will evolve... or dissolve.

  8. #8
    Per Hewitt, I would expect his snap count to go down, not up. Kroft finished with 60 snaps and looked as good as I've ever seen him play. And they're still trying to get Uzomah back into the mix. I think Uzomah will continue to take snaps away from Hewitt.

    As for Bernard, I think he's got a defined role to play going forward but Mixon is the straw that stirs the drink now. He hasn't done a thing the earn it and if we're honest about things his slip cost the Bengals the Packers game. But the Packer game was the start of a new era.

  9. #9
    The #3WR spot is still a mess. Boyd got 30 snaps and 1 target. Core gets 5 snaps and 0 targets. Ross didn't play a single snap or fumble this week. That's progress, I guess. Erickson chips in from time to time. Meanwhile, savvy but unproductive Brandon LaFell is still playing roughly 90% of all snaps. Factor in an Eifert-less TE squad and you're left with AJ Green.

    It's a one-man band.
