NFL Rookies on display in week 1

Leonard Fournette

Leonard Fournette stood out in the pre-season and brought it over to the regular season against the Houston Texans in week 1.

Fournette had an impressive day, 26 carries for 100 yards and 1 touchdown. Seems like small numbers, but given that the Jaguars don’t shell out 100-yard rushing performances on a regular basis with that offensive line.

Fournette ran through the Texans defense literally

T.J. Watt

T.J. Watt reminded us all of J.J. Watt, and what the Watt brothers do best which is dominate.

T.J. Watt had 7 tackles, 2 sacks, and an interception in his first game as a pro. The top pick for the Stealers is going to have a great career if he can stay healthy.

Deshone Kizer

Kizer might be the Browns savior. Although, the Browns loss to the Stealers again, Deshone Kizer played well. 20/30 for 222 yards and 1 touchdown and only 1 interception.

Kizer will look for his first win next week versus divisional rival Baltimore Ravens.

 

Dalvin Cook

In Adrian Peterson return to Minnesota, it was Dalvin Cook who stole the show.

The Vikings rookie running back looked like the dominate running back on the field on Monday night. He had 22 carries for 127 yards but zero touchdowns. Cooked ran hard, like a young A.P.

As for Peterson, his days as the league’s best running back are long gone. After his on one season and off the next season antics slowed his play. Peterson had a measly 6 carries for 18 yards. At one point in the game, it looked as if Peterson was yelling at his head coach, Sean Payton.
