Denver Broncos Week 12 Rookie Report

Robert Griffin continues to be the superstar that the hype said he would be. Who else was great?

Al Messerschmidt

RONNIE HILLMAN did not play as much as many expected. He was a waiver claim in fantasy football for everybody but Hillman only ended up getting 7 snaps against KC, all on offense. He had 3 carries for 9 yards in the victory.

DEREK WOLFE had 53 total snaps, with 48 on defense. Wolfe had three tackles and one really solid run stop in the victory over Kansas City. MALIK JACKSON had one special teams snap.

DANNY TREVETHAN contributed both on defense and special teams. He had 10 plays on defense and 12 on special teams for one tackle. STEVEN JOHNSON had 15 special teams snaps with one tackle.

OMAR BOLDEN had no returns and had 12 special teams plays.


ROBERT GRIFFIN III had 311 yards, 4 touchdowns and an interception in the Thanksgiving defeat of the Cowboys. I am more of an Andrew Luck fan, but I think you can pencil in RG3 for the Offensive Rookie of the Year award. His numbers are very impressive.

ANDREW LUCK continues to help the impressive Colts march towards the playoffs with their seventh win of the season. He threw 37 passes and completed 20 of them with 240 yards and one touchdown.

RUSSELL WILSON was 21 of 27 with 2 touchdowns and 224 yards. Russell Wilson is one of the rare cases of a preseason stud living up to the hype. He has been very impressive and has Seattle in a wild card position at this point.

DOUG MARTIN scored two touchdowns and continued to keep fantasy owners grinning. He had 21 carries for 50 yards but also gave up a sack in pass protection.

ALFRED MORRIS had cooled down in previous weeks but he had another 100 yard game rushing for 113 yards and a score.

BOBBY WAGNER for the Seahawks had a fantastic game. He had 7 tackles, 2 assisted tackles, a pair of pass deflections,

LUKE KUECHLY 5 tackles, 2 assists and a fumble recovery. The sure tackling linebacker now has 106 on the season.

MOHAMMED SANU is making my list for the first time. He had two touchdowns. The Bengals wideout has 4 TDs in 3 three games now

JANORIS JENKINS had a really nice game, He faced Cardinals rookie QB RYAN LINDLEY who threw to pick sixes to Jenkins. Both Interceptions were just under 40 yards. Jenkins is the first rookie with two pick sixes since 1960 according to Fox Sports.
