All WR vs NYJ
FBG says: Good matchup. The Panthers come fresh off a 45-21 dismantling of the Dolphins, which saw Cam Newton throw for 254 yards and 4 touchdowns. And the decimated Carolina passing game, which has lost both Kelvin Benjamin and rookie slot man Curtis Samuel in recent weeks, should enjoy a nice boost if Greg Olsen returns as expected. Olsen's presence is a huge deal: he'll likely vie for the target lead off the bat, and dating back to 2014, no Panthers receiver has produced more adjusted yards per attempt (factoring in interceptions) from Newton. Even with the personnel losses, we have to like at least the short-term outlook here. There doesn't seem to be much drop-off from the Olsen/Kelvin Benjamin pairing to Olsen/Devin Funchess, and with Christian McCaffrey erupting out of the backfield, there's still plenty of dynamism at play here. Consistency, as always, is the sticking point. Newton has thrown for 239+ yards 4 times this year - and that's plenty considering his rushing output - but also been held below 172 in 4 others.
The Jets' young pass defense has actually overachieved a bit, considering its inexperienced and shaky personnel, but it's still a unit to target in fantasy. The team has allowed 5 of its last 6 opponents to top 250 passing yards, with 3 of them topping 285. It's not hard to see why: the team lacks strong coverage options at cornerback beyond Morris Claiborne, and has struggled quite a bit in the slot, allowing big recent receiving lines to Jarvis Landry (7 receptions for 93 yards and 1 touchdown) and Mohamed Sanu (6 for 74 and 1). And with two rookies starting at the safety spots, there's tons of opportunity for misreads and missed assignment. Tight ends tend to work them over as well - only six defenses have allowed more PPR points to the position - which bodes well for Greg Olsen's probable return to the field.
