Week 12: at New England Patriots

All WR vs NE

FBG says: Good matchup. For whatever reason, Jay Cutler remains coach Adam Gase's preferred starter as he returns from a concussion. Cutler has been wildly ineffective all year, while backup Matt Moore has posted two great games during Cutler's inevitable injury timeout. We can't just apply late-game relief numbers to a full game, and Moore was indeed horrid in his lone 2017 start. But he was strong last year over 3 starts, completing 63.4% of his throws and tossing 8 touchdowns. In any event, Cutler is the chosen one for Week 12, so we should expect a sanitized, low-impact passing "attack" that's built around the king of low impact himself, slot receiver Jarvis Landry. He's topped 230 yards just once over 7 full starts, and it's not a volume problem: he's averaging a solid 34.3 attempts, but a pitiful 5.75 yards per attempt. Until he shows a willingness to uncork his downfield game, Cutler looks like nothing more than a volatile dink-and-dunker with a ceiling around 225 yards and 1-2 touchdowns. At least Moore shows a willingness to go downfield and create some degree of impact. Cutler has failed all year to incorporate big-play threats DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills in a meaningful way, so it's safe to project Cutler and company to nickel-and-dime their way to midfield a few times and give up possession plenty. It's hard to know what to expect week-to-week from this unit, which has been shredded at times throughout the year but tightened up majorly of late. After allowing their first 6 opponents to average a whopping 322.0 yards, they've given up just 225.8 to their last 4. As with the running game, flow is the determining factor here. When an opposing offense is close and utilizing its full playbook, the Patriots are generally toast in coverage. We saw that when Brock Osweiler of all quarterbacks chewed them apart over the first half of Week 10. But if/when the Patriots jump ahead comfortably, offenses have to adapt into a free-throwing passing attack into heavy coverage, one that's predictable and much easier for Bill Belichick's flawed defensive personnel to control.
