Hidden Stat Line: NFL Week 8 Recap
Hidden Stat Line: NFL Week 8 Recap

This article is part of our Hidden Stat Line series.

Here's a quick list of some of our Week 8 highlights, because writing a list takes less time than writing a real introduction:

  1. DK Metcalf with more snaps (and two TDs!)
  2. Devin Singletary up to 68% of snaps
  3. Courtland Sutton dominates, but not on the stat sheet
  4. Christian Kirk looking healthy
  5. Baker Mayfield lighting up the Patriots defense
  6. Minshew, the Creator
  7. Todd Gurley disappearing after his TD
  8. Danny Amendola gobbling up targets and yards... again
  9. Auden Tate: WR1 volume, WR3 production
  10. I lied about No. 5
  11. It's tacky to make everything in multiples of five or 10.
  12. All the lists below are in multiples of five or 10.
  13. Now we have a Baker's dozen.
