Taylor Heinicke has shown he can play in the NFL.
Matt Harmon and Dalton Del Don get together after week 1 to dig through stats and identify some trends that they love to see (efficient passing from Jameis Winston and Teddy Bridgewater!) and some that they hate to see (Titans giving up on play-action). The guys finish with a preview of the Sunday night game between the Chiefs and Ravens and a single game DFS preview of Thursday’s matchup between the New York Giants and the Washington Football Team.
Zane Gonzalez thought there was a possibility he might wind up with the Carolina Panthers following a strong tryout with the team this past June in which he was “pretty much perfect” on his field-goal and extra-point attempts. Gonzalez will assume kicking duties this week when the Panthers host the New Orleans Saints in an early NFC South showdown. Carolina signed him after abruptly parting ways with rookie Ryan Santoso — a move that saved the Panthers a future seventh-round draft pick.
