Week 3: vs New York Jets
All TE vs NYJ
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Alex Smith went from dynamic to dud from Week One (34/48 for 363 yards passing, two TDs and one interception, wth three sacks taken for -33 yards, and 4/15/1 rushing) to Week Two (20/37 for 186 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions thrown, with four sacks taken for -14 yards, with 2/2/0 rushing). Of course, the Chiefs humiliated the Texans in the playoffs last year, so there was a lot of sentiment powering the Texans' defense last weekend. Jeremy Maclin (15 targets for 6/68/0 receiving), Spencer Ware (three for 2/48/0), and Travis Kelce for 5/34/0) were the only receivers to go over 30 yards in the flop Week Two.
The Jets' pass D crumpled in Buffalo, allowing 19/31 for 307 yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown, with zero sacks generated. In particular, the Bills attacked Darrelle Revis on multiple occasions, and made some long completions in so doing. To date, the Jets average 315.5 yards passing allowed per game, with four passing scores given out vs. two interceptions and seven sacks generated. The pass rush has worked at points, but the secondary is ailing this season, friends. Over the first two weeks of the season, New York has averaged 25.5 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (seventh-most in the NFL); and 35.4 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (second-most in the league); with 4.3 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (ninth-least). Suddenly, the Jets' pass defense looks very vulnerable.
Advantage, Kansas City.
