Week 14: vs New York Jets

All TE vs NYJ

FBG says: Great matchup. The Broncos remain a team without a quarterback; they're already in "tank for a QB" mode for all intents and purposes. Trevor Siemian has regressed even further from his ideal-backup outlook, posting a truly pitiful 4.40 adjusted yards per attempt over his last 5 turnover-plagued appearances. Backup Paxton Lynch is out with an ankle sprain and has looked like an abject failure when on the NFL field anyway (a career 5.00 AY/A and 73.3 passer rating). And Brock Osweiler somehow remains just as bad as either of them. It's a shame to see a wideout duo as talented and ball-dominant as Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders go wasted, but that's what we're seeing. The two have combined to draw a massive 39% of team targets since Week 5, but spun them into just 7.6 combined receptions for 89.0 yards. With such inept quarterbacking, neither can be looked at as anything more than a volatile WR2/3 option at best. The Jets pass defense has feasted and built respectable numbers over the past few weeks against shaky and/or subpar passing games, but remains a soft unit we can target with confidence in fantasy. We saw last week what an explosive offense can do to them: Alex Smith racked up 366 yards and 4 touchdowns, becoming the 6th quarterback over their last 8 games to top 250 and also the 6th to throw multiple scores. The Jets' rookie safety duo has been shoddy at best in coverage, and outside of Morris Claiborne, the cornerbacks have failed to hold downfield coverage. That's a big reason wideouts are having so much success in this matchup: since Week 5, they've allowed 68+ yards and/or a touchdown to a whopping 12 wide receivers, including the likes of Deonte Thompson, Zay Jones, and Chris Godwin.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 10 vs NE (3 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Heuerman split out to the left slot and got his hands on a seam route in the 3rd quarter, but a defender smacked him in the chest before he could bring the pass down, jarring the ball loose. Osweiler hit him on a shallow out route two plays later for a gain of 4. Heuerman was the target on Osweiler's 4th quarter interception, a questionable pass that was thrown into double coverage.

2017 Week 8 vs KC (2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

Heuerman was the target of Siemian's first interception. He motioned from the left side of the formation to the right receiver spot and took off up the sideline on the snap. Heuerman was blanketed by a cornerback, but Siemian forced the ball anyway, hitting the defender right in the hands for an easy pick. Heuerman picked up a 1st down in the 2nd half with his only other target of the day.

2017 Week 6 vs NYG (2 / 2 / 24 / 1 rec)

AJ Derby drew the early tight end targets, but Heuerman caught a touchdown late in the 4th quarter, lining up inline on play-action and beating tough coverage from a linebacker and safety for a difficult catch on a skinny post. Heuerman flexed a couple steps off the left side of the line and caught a crossing route earlier in the 4th for a gain of 13

2017 Week 2 vs DAL (1 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)

Heuerman took plenty of snaps as a blocker, but was only targeted once, hauling it in for a 15 yard gain from the inline position.

2017 Week 1 vs LAC (2 / 1 / 20 / 0 rec)

Heuerman secured his only target, a seam route from the inline position for a big gain in the 1st quarter.
