Week 4: at New York Jets
All TE vs NYJ
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Russell Wilson (knee, ankle) was diagnosed with a sprain to the medial collateral ligament in his left knee suffered during the team's Week 3 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Head coach Pete Carroll stated Monday, September 26 that Wilson 'feels great' and is recovering well. Keep an eye on his practice status in Footballguys.com's Players in the News as the weekend draws near - with a Week Five bye looming for Seattle, they may decide to rest Wilson and go with rookie quarterback Trevone Boykin (7/9 for 65 yards rushing, one TD and one interception thrown vs. the 49ers) who closed out the win over San Francisco last weekend. During the game last week, Doug Baldwin (10 targets for 8/164/1 receiving) and Jimmy Graham (nine for 6/100/1) both got to or over 100 yards receiving, with help coming from four other players (Alex Collins, Jermaine Kearse, Luke Willson, Christine Michael) who caught two passes each (none went over 20 yards receiving in the game).
The Jets' pass defense kept Alex Smith and company limited during last week's loss, allowing 25/33 for 221 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown, with two sacks for -16 yards. To date, the Jets' pass D averages 284 net yards passing per game, with five passing scores allowed vs. just two interceptions generated - they are tied for seventh in the NFL with nine sacks, though. Over the first three weeks of the season, New York has averaged 22.2 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (tied for 11th-most in the NFL); and 27 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (ninth-most); with 8.6 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (12th-most). This is a mediocre pass defense entering Week Four, friends.
This is a neutral matchup if Wilson plays, but downgrade to a tough matchup for Boykin as he'll have to withstand a fierce pass rush if he plays (and he has little experience in a real, live regular-season NFL game).
