    His stats receiving this year:

    4 catches
    116 total yards
    29.0 avg
    43 long

    Last game:

    Why do we not use him on screens more often?

    Mainly because when they're running the 4 WR and the 3 WR Shotgun stuff, Faulk is the RB instead of Maroney, mainly for his run blocking ability. Maroney has been getting better, and has been seeing more time as a result.

    Also, don't know if you noticed, but the Patriots have RARELY screened all year. The Jacksonville game was the first one all year I can recall them using more than one. Maybe they were holding it for the playoffs.

    if you remember, I think it was the ravens game he broke a couple big ones like this, but I just don't think it's something they fit into the game plans.
    doesn't mean you'll never see it, though --- I think there's plenty of stuff still up the wizard's sleeves.

    You have to figure that they have a couple things up their sleeves for the next couple games. Using LoMo out of the backfield may be one. I still think there is some stuff for Stallworth that we havent seen yet.
