Week 7: vs Minnesota Vikings

All TE vs MIN

FBG says: Good matchup. Sam Darnold may have already arrived. The youngest starting quarterback of the Super Bowl era, Darnold opened his NFL career with a whimper, completing just 56% of his throws over the first 5 weeks. But over the last 2, he's averaged a studly 9.54 yards per attempt and thrown 5 touchdowns. Darnold is a strong-armed prospect, one who's unafraid to test downfield and flashes excellent placement when his mechanics are sound. He's still getting by mostly on quick, short routes, and his slot men remain the Jets' most consistent producers. Quincy Enunwa easily led the team in targets and yardage before his Week 6 injury, and Jermaine Kearse stepped in last week to catch 9 balls. But as Darnold's confidence and fundamentals improve, there will be more opportunity for splash plays. As it stands, this certainly isn't the league's most explosive attack, but it's one that's finally showing fantasy utility. If Darnold keeps developing quickly as a franchise passer, the fortunes of Robby Anderson and Terrelle Pryor will rise, if only gradually. In general, the Vikings pass defense has been disappointing to open 2018. They were last year's second-most dominant unit, but thus far have allowed 4 of 6 quarterbacks to top 260 yards. They faced rookies in the other two games, and even Buffalo's Josh Allen was able to beat them on a handful of tough downfield throws. The pass rush remains dynamic, even without Everson Griffen, but the coverage units have been undermanned and shaky. The cornerbacks have alternated solid performances with bad ones, and it likely won't get better without first-round rookie Mike Hughes. This a group still quite capable of dominating, as it did last week in haranguing Cardinals rookie Josh Rosen. But it's no longer the fantasy-shutdown unit it once was.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 5 vs DEN (1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)

Leggett made one catch on a short out route to the right of the formation, but was otherwise used as a blocker.

2018 Week 4 vs JAX (4 / 3 / 13 / 1 rec)

Leggett had a nice grab across the middle to set up a third and short, and had the lone Jets touchdown on the day. On that play, it seemed as though the short coverage for the Jaguars assumed the safety would take over coverage of Leggett but nobody did. Leggett had an easy time snagging in the throw from rookie quarterback Sam Darnold.
