Week 3 Takeaways

Orlando’s 21-17 Win Over Memphis

  • Garrett Gilbert has worked as the AAF’s best quarterback since pretty much the first play of Week 1. He ranks third and first in yards per attempt on 20-plus yard throws and play-action passes, respectively. This willingness to attack every inch of the field in Steve Spurrier’s Sun ‘N’ Gun offense has helped Orlando easily stand out as the league’s most-productive offense after three weeks of action.
  • D’Ernest Johnson has overtaken Akeem Hunt as the lead man in Orlando’s backfield. Johnson (54% snaps) was one of only six running backs in Week 3 to play more than half of their offense’s snaps. And while De’Veon Smith remains plenty involved as a short-yardage specialist and early-down grinder, Spurrier indicated after the Apollos’ Week 3 win that Johnson had played well enough to keep the starting job.
  • The Apollos have one of the league’s clearest defined pecking orders at wide receiver. Neither Jalin Marshall nor Charles Johnson missed a snap last week, while Rannell Hall played 64% of the snaps compared to measly 5% rate for Chris Thompson. Thompson (No. 2), Johnson (No. 5), Marshall (No. 16) and Hall (No. 24) rank among Pro Football Focus’ top-25 receivers in yards per route run this season.
