Week 7: vs New York Jets
FBG says: Tough matchup. There is not much more to say about Jay Cutler that has not already been written, but the Dolphins are currently last in the NFL at just 155.4 yards per game passing which there are only six teams in the NFL that are under 200 yards per game. The Dolphins are also averaging just 5.1 yards per attempt which would be the lowest number since 2009 when the Browns had Brady Quinn as their starting quarterback. The Dolphins have not had an overly difficult schedule that are driving these numbers either as they have only faced one top ten passing defense which was in week two against the Chargers which also was Jay Cutler's most productive game this season. The Jets passing defense so far this season has been solid in terms of limiting big games to opposing quarterbacks as we saw last season as they held Tom Brady to just 257 yards last week and a completion percentage of just 52%. The Jets have avoided allowing big play thanks to rookies Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye who have been a big part of why the Jets are 7th in terms of yards per attempt allowed at just 6.4 yards per attempt this season. While at the cornerback position the Jets do not have a standout cornerback, they also do not have a weakness as Morris Claiborne, Buster Skrine and Darryl Roberts have all been consistent performers so far this season.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 6 vs ATL (14 / 8 / 62 / 1 rec)
Jarvis Landry caught eight passes for 62 yards and one touchdown on 15 targets against the Falcons. With DeVante Parker on the sideline with an injury, Landry's already heavy volume of targets increased to the point where he was targeted on nearly half of Jay Cutler's passes. Jay Ajayi is the focal point of the Dolphins offense, but Landry is not far behind, and he acts as a safe target for Jay Cutler in the short passing game. Landry attracts a lot of attention from opposing secondary's, and the Dolphins were able to exploit this on Landry's touchdown grab. With Landry coming in motion from the left side of the formation, Jay Cutler took the snap and faked a handoff to Jay Ajayi. As Landry got to the middle of the formation, he immediately cut back to the left and took off for the end zone. Atlanta's defense didn't have a chance, as Landry was as wide open as you will ever see in an NFL game. He made an easy catch for his second touchdown of the season.
2017 Week 5 vs TEN (10 / 5 / 44 / 1 rec)
Jarvis Landry five passes for 44 yards and also scored his first touchdown of the season on Sunday against the Titans. Landry was in many ways, the passing game for Miami on a day when Jay Cutler completed a total of seven passes to other Dolphins receivers. Landry made two significant plays on the day, the first a 17 yard reception where he caught the ball on a hook-route in the middle of the field, before shaking two defenders with a spin move and picking up a total of 17 yards on the play. It was the longest play of the day for the Miami passing attack. That play, set up a six yard touchdown reception where Landry ran a shallow in-route from the slot, and Jay Cutler threw a nice ball in between two Titans defenders. Both defenders hit Landry, but he was able to secure the ball for what went down as the only touchdown of the day for the Dolphins.
2017 Week 4 vs NO (7 / 6 / 40 / 0 rec)
Jarvis Landry caught six of his nine targets for 40 yards against the Saints on Sunday. Landry's long gain was 11 yards, as the Saints did a great job of containing him after the catch. The Dolphins were not able to get their run game going, which allowed the Saints to stack the box and keep a lot of defenders around the line of scrimmage. This in turn affected Landry, as he was not able to create any space by running drag routes and short slants and screens. On the season, Landry is averaging 6.6 yards per catch, and only 3.2 yards after the catch, which matched his exact numbers from this game. Landry was targeted three times on third down, but was unable to convert a first down on any of his three targets.
2017 Week 3 vs NYJ (11 / 6 / 48 / 0 rec)
Jarvis Landry continued to be heavily targeted by Jay Cutler, catching six of 11 targets for 48 yards. The Jets cornerbacks did a great job containing Landry on short passes. There was no room for Landry to gain yards after the catch, which is where is dangerous. Landry was unable to create separation down the field on his two deep targets, one of which is resulted in Cutler throwing an interception. Landry has a great matchup next week against the Saints, so look for him to have a big game with plenty of targets from Cutler.
2017 Week 2 vs LAC (15 / 13 / 78 / 0 rec, 1 / -7 / 0 rush)
Jarvis Landry paced the Dolphins in receptions and targets, catching 13 passes for 78 yards. His 16 targets were nearly half of Jay Cutlers 33 attempts, so it is clear that Cutler has already developed a good rapport with Landry, despite only playing one preseason game together. Landry was his typical self against the Chargers, finding weaknesses in zone coverages and consistently beating his man off the line of scrimmage. Jay Cutler's quick release went a long way in giving Landry chances to make plays after the catch, although the Chargers did do a good job of not letting Landry beat them with the big play. Landry is targeted mainly on drag and crossing routes where he can get into space and gain yards after the catch. Much was made of Cutler's preference for big body targets, and why that played to DeVante Parker's strengths more so than Landry's, but it looks as though Cutler will target them both frequently and they should both have opportunities that play to their strengths.
