The Dolphins again can’t take advantage of solid starting field possession. Miami commits a holding penalty on first down and it never recovers. The Raiders will take over inside their 20 following a punt.
Kayvon Webster, CB, Los Angeles Rams: Webster was declared out for the game because of a concussion.
Shawn Lauvao, OG, Washington Redskins: Lauvao exited the game in the second quarter with a stinger and was originally declared questionable to return before being downgraded to out.
And as the team has learned to live with the Elliott case, it has started to hit its stride on the field, with three straight double-digit wins to improve to 5-3 entering Week 10. Elliott is managing to have another excellent season, ranking second in the league in rushing, with 783 yards, after leading the NFL in his rookie year. His yards per carry average is down a full yard, as defenses have been keying on him, but his reception total is up this season.
Josh Doctson, WR, Washington Redskins (28.1 percent): My colleague and the unparalleled Matthew Berry has been on Doctson for quite some time, touting his skills and potential upside in the Washington offense. Doctson is an unquestionable talent who had 81 yards on seven targets in Week 11. His role should blossom even further, and this is a talent-based evaluation: This dude can play. He’s a smart addition to any roster in 12-team or larger leagues.
Through Wednesday night, per play-by-play data on Basketball-Reference.com, players had made about 80 percent of their free throws (80.3 percent, to be exact). That’s better than the league average of 76.9 percent (which is slightly down from last season’s 77.2 percent mark, the best free throw percentage in a season the NBA has ever seen), but that’s not the right comparison since teams get to choose who shoots their technical fouls.
