San Diego alumnus Ross Dwelley snagged his first touchdown the season to pace the group of five PFL alumni on active NFL rosters saw during Week 8 of the campaign. Here's a brief look at how they performed:

Donald Parham Jr., Tight End, Los Angeles Chargers (Stetson)
Parham started Sunday's game at Denver and was on the field for 10 offensive snaps, but was not targeted with a pass in the Chargers Week 8 loss.

Adam Trautman, Tight End, New Orleans Saints (Dayton)
Trautman was on the field for 16 offensive snaps and an impressive 18 special teams snaps in New Orleans' overtime victory at Chicago, Sunday.

Ross Dwelley, Tight End, San Francisco 49ers (San Diego)
Dwelley snagged his first career touchdown reception (see below) in the 49ers loss at Seattle. The 16-yard reception in the fourth quarter narrowed the 49ers deficit to 10 points. Dwelley was targeted four times and saw action on 39 offensive snaps. With the injury to George Kittle, Dwelley moved to No. 1 on the San Francisco depth chart ahead of Thursday night's game against Green Bay.

Jamal Agnew, Wide Receiver, Detroit Lions (San Diego)
Agnew compiled 75 all-purpose yards in Detroit's loss to Indianapolis, including 62 yards on kickoff returns. He also had an 11-yard carry that was his longest run of 2020.

Jason Myers, Kicker, Seattle Seahawks (Marist)
Myers continued to be clutch from long distance last week, hitting a 48-yard field goal to start the fourth quarter in Seattle's win over San Francisco. All five of his field goals in 2020 have been from 40-plus yards. However, Myers did miss his first PAT of the season only to rebound with a 4-for-5 outing on the extra point which moved him atop the NFL charts with 29 PATs made.
