Want to collect someone who’s very affordable and relatively solid on the field?
Atlanta Falcons defensive lineman Adrian Clayborn made a case for himself on Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys when he did something that’s only been equaled or topped by three other players since 1982 when the sack became an official NFL stat. He had six sacks of Dak Prescott — just one short of the NFL record — and he wasn’t boisterous about the big game afterward.
“I only have one move and it worked,” Clayborn told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I play the same way every game and it lucked out for me today.”
It wasn’t the flashiest day in the NFL for rookies, but a slow-building superstar scenario might be happening with the New Orleans Saints with their recent trading of a future Hall of Famer.
Rookie RB Alvin Kamara put up his strongest game of the year so far in a 30-10 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday with 10 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown and six catches for 84 yards and a score.
He’s still sharing time with Mark Ingram — a seventh-year pro and former Heisman winner — but both have picked up steam since the Saints traded Adrian Peterson on Oct. 10. For the year, Kamara has 311 yards on 52 carries — Peterson had 37 on Sunday alone for the Cardinals — and 341 yards on 37 catches with a total of five TDs for the year.
