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 was targeted three times in the Chargers' loss to Las Vegas, while seeing the field for nine snaps. The three targets equaled his total from the season to date. This season he has two receptions for 41 yards and two touchdowns.

Adam Trautman, Tight End, New Orleans Saints (Dayton)
Trautman scored his first touchdown in the NFL during New Orleans' victory at Tampa Bay. He had his best day as a professional with three receptions for 39 yards and the touchdown score. He now has six receptions for 73 yards and a touchdown this season, with four of his receptions resulting in first downs.

Ross Dwelley, Tight End, San Francisco 49ers (San Diego)
Dwelley had three receptions for 52 yards in San Francisco's loss to Green Bay and also had a 20-yard kickoff return. It was his best day as a receiver in yardage and he now has nine receptions for 122 yards (five for first downs) this season.

Jamal Agnew, Wide Receiver, Detroit Lions (San Diego)
Agnew had two kick returns in Detroit's loss to Indianapolis, including a 33-yard kickoff return to start the third quarter that led to a Detroit touchdown. He also had an 11-yard run in the third quarter, his third carry of the season. He has 11 kick returns for 294 yards this season, five punt returns for 43 yards, six receptions for 38 yards and another 15 yards on three carries.

Jason Myers, Kicker, Seattle Seahawks (Marist)
Myers connected on another pair of field goals in Seattle's loss at Buffalo and to no surprise, both were from 40-plus yards as he improved to 7-for-7 on field goals, each from that range. He is one of four kickers to finish the first nine weeks without missing a field goal.
