Detroit Lions @ New York Jets: Offensive Snap Counts

Another tough loss to take. A couple of injuries to boot, lets see how that affected the play time.

David Nelson went down early and so there was no-one out there just running routes without getting open or targeted. With No Nelson and no Stephen Hill, I have no idea how we'll cope next week.

Player Position Snaps Percentage of Offensive Plays
D'Brickashaw Ferguson Left Tackle 64 100%
Brian Winters Left Guard 64 100%
Nick Mangold Centre 64 100%
Willie Colon Right Guard 64 100%
Breno Giacomini Right Tackle 64 100%
Geno Smith Quarterback 64 100%
Eric Decker Wide Receiver 51 80%
Jeff Cumberland Tight End 50 78%
Jeremy Kerley Wide Receiver 49 77%
Greg Salas Wide Receiver 41 64%
Chris Ivory Running Back 37 58%
Jace Amaro Tight End 22 34%
Chris Johnson Running Back 18 28%
Tommy Bohanon Fullback 16 25%
David Nelson Wide Receiver 16 25%
Bilal Powell Running Back 11 17%
Zack Sudfeld Tight End 4 6%
Walt Powell Wide Receiver 4 6%
Salim Hakim Wide Receiver 1 2%

Jace Amaro was targeted 5 times, he caught 5 passes, please can we incorporate him in more than 30% of our offensive plays. When you consider he is the better blocker, I don't see how he's not seeing at least 50%. Every single week he looks more comfortable and he looks more dominant, at least to me. Get him the ball more. A positive? Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson were no longer split 50/50 and Ivory got more offensive snaps, like he should.

Salas saw his play time increase by over 20%, thanks in large part to the injury to David Nelson. He did really well, especially on those underneath crossing patterns, getting the ball in his hands would be a priority for me when game-planning this week. Cumberland's play time decreased by 10% from last week to this week, but in my mind it's not enough.

Although Decker looked a little rusty, it was great to see him in 80% of the plays. Another week and he should be 100% with his hamstring, that's a massive positive for us. Those are my main observations there, anyone have any others?
