Week 9: at Kansas City Chiefs

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. The Jets will send Michael Vick into the grinder this week as their new starting quarterback, but he has shown little to inspire confidence in the way of an instant upgrade for New York. 26/56 (a 46.4 completion percentage) for 200 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown, with 12/92/0 rushing over six games appeared in to date. To make things even worse, this weekend the Jets' offense has to operate within deafening Arrowhead Stadium - where the Chiefs' pass rushers take special advantage of the roaring crowd and make life miserable for opposing passers (of the three opposing quarterbacks to visit Arrowhead this season, only Jake Locker won or had more than one passing TD, with two thrown). Tom Brady had his meltdown in Arrowhead (14/23 for 159 yards passing, one TD and two interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -8 yards), and Austin Davis was harassed to 15/25 for 116 net yards passing, one TD and one interception, with seven sacks taken for -44 yards last weekend). The Jets have given up 22 sacks already this year, 27th in the NFL, and figure to hike that total dramatically with a rusty Vick under center this weekend. This is an awful matchup for fantasy owners. Stay far away if at all possible.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs DEN (2 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)

While Amaro was featured as the pass catching tight end, Cumberland spent the majority of the afternoon blocking. Cumberland was deployed on a few routes and came away with minimal gains. During the first quarter, Smith checked down to Cumberland on third and long for a five-yard gain. During the third quarter, Cumberland once again received a check down from Smith for a five-yard gain.

2014 Week 7 vs NE (4 / 3 / 50 / 1 rec)

Based on snap count and usage, Cumberland was New York's top tight end. Cumberland appeared on 77 of 87 offensive snaps and hauled in his first touchdown during the fourth quarter. On a 3rd-and-6 play from New England's 10-yard line, Cumberland ran a drag route across the front of the end zone and easily beat the smaller Patrick Chung to complete the scoring play. During the first quarter, Cumberland ran a deep post route and hauled in a 28-yard pass for a first down. When deployed as a receiver, Cumberland was able to win his match-ups against New England's safeties.
