Cincinnati Bengals running back Brian Leonard posted 39 snaps at running back on Sunday, eight more than the team's feature back. Though the impression might generate a, "oh my god, Leonard is becoming the feature back" reaction or two, the snap count is undeniably understandable. Through 84 offensive snaps, 50 were passes and the more plays that are called passes, the more likely Leonard will be a heavy contributor for the offense.
With A.J. Green out, your primary receivers were Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell; both of whom made significant contributions one way or another against the Ravens. That being said, fan-favorite Andrew Hawkins posted a career-high 52 snaps last weekend (his previous high was 15 against the Steelers).
