Week 3: vs Miami Dolphins

All WR vs MIA

FBG says: Tough matchup. It's hard to find a less-inspiring passing game than that of the Jets. Take the fact that 38-year-old Josh McCown, he of the career 78.2 passer rating and 3.2% interception rate, is their runaway top option to start under center. Or, consider that Seahawks castoff Jermaine Kearse, ideally a special-teams ace and run-blocking WR3, has been by far the team's most efficient receiver. Altogether, this is an offense that's produced just 176.5 passing yards per game, and a pitiful 4.73 adjusted yards per attempt. There's a glint of optimism, at least, in the return of tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins from suspension. Considering his natural abilities and the team's yard-sale level of pass-catching talent, there's a decent chance he emerges as a voluminous splash-play threat out of the gate. His matchup is certainly cherry, fresh off a 2016 that saw the Dolphins destroyed by tight ends. Miami's pass defense was a mixed bag in their 2017 debut. The Dolphins got solid play from cornerbacks Xavien Howard and Byron Maxwell, but their lack of pass rush (three quarterback hits, one sack) allowed Philip Rivers to generally carve up the secondary (31-of-39 passing for a stout 8.49-yard average). Still, this unit is looking at a dream matchup and opportunity to tune up against the woeful Jets offense. On the back end, Howard and Maxwell are absolutely strong enough in man coverage to neutralize the Jets receivers, all of whom are ideally NFL WR3/4 types at best. And Cameron Wake and company will have another crack at pass-rushing success against a poor offensive line. Where the Dolphins are most vulnerable, regardless of matchup, is in defending the tight end position. Over their past 17 games, opposing tight ends have averaged 62.1 yards per game and caught a whopping 11 touchdowns. If Austin Seferian-Jenkins is in game shape, he could create a few mismatches up the seams and in short yardage.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs OAK (4 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)

Robby Anderson made a few nice catches over the middle, but Kearse seemed to be McCown's preferred target. Anderson worked the short-to-intermediate areas of the field, hauling in a 19-yarder on a cross route for his long-play of the game.

2017 Week 1 vs BUF (8 / 4 / 22 / 0 rec)

Robby Anderson made a few nice catches over the middle, but Kearse seemed to be McCown's preferred target. Towards the end of the game, Anderson ran a deep sideline route and made a leaping grab. Anderson and safety, Jordan Poyer battled for the ball, but Anderson came down with the ball. The official ruled Poyer made the interception, a curious call, given the outcome of the play.

Jets | Week 3 status report for NYJ (Fri Sep 22, 04:10 PM) - New York Jets TE Will Tye (illness) and DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder) are questionable for Week 3. Wilkerson and FS Rontez Miles (eye) were limited participants in practice Friday, Sept. 22. Miles is listed as doubtful. OG Brian Winters (abdomen), TE Eric Tomlinson (elbow) did not practice and are out, while TE Jordan Leggett (knee) also did not practice but is doubtful. DE Leonard Williams (wrist), TE Neal Sterling (knee), DL Steve McLendon (hamstring), OL Jonotthan Harrison (concussion), RB Matt Forte (knee), LB Bruce Carter (ankle), OG James Carpenter (shoulder), OT Kelvin Beachum (knee) and WR Robby Anderson (knee) all practiced in full and are not on the injury report.

Our View: Wilkerson is one of the best players left on the Jets defense. If he's less than full strength, the Dolphins offense's job gets even easier.

Jets | Robby Anderson limited (Thu Sep 21, 02:26 PM) - New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Our View: Anderson gets some targets but the situation the Jets passing offense offers isn't conducive to success from either an NFL or fantasy standpoint. We'll take a hard pass on this player.
