Week 15: vs New York Jets

All WR vs NYJ

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Lamar Jackson's Week 14 box score wasn't special, with just 146 passing yards over his 16 completions. But it speaks loudly of his development that he beat the league's third-ranked pass defense for three touchdowns en route to a statement win. Jackson had little to work with against the Bills' dominant secondary, but routinely found his backs and tight ends for chain-moving plays and short touchdowns. That conservative attack will be the norm going forward if Mark Andrews can't suit up, and if speedster Marquise Brown can't get uncorked. Brown has produced just 64 yards over the past 4 weeks, and this depth chart is one of the league's thinnest. It's fair to expect Jackson and the Ravens to lead with the run even more than usual, at least for the time being, which indeed dings their passing upside. Jackson remains fantasy's every-week QB1, though it's worth noting he hasn't topped 247 yards since Week 3. It's his rushing chops and touchdown upside that make him such an asset. In the depths of a full-on rebuild, the Jets' young pass defense has tightened noticeably of late. Over the past 4 weeks, they've allowed opponents just 5.9 yards per attempt and 212 a game, with only 3 touchdowns through the air. They've had some help, of course, from an extremely forgiving recent schedule of passers: Dwayne Haskins, Derek Carr, Andy Dalton, Ryan Fitzpatrick. But it's worth noting the massive statistical leaps they've taken. The no-name pass rush is starting to take flight, with Nathan Shepherd and Jordan Jenkins forming a dynamic bookend duo and a stout front pushing the pocket. The team is still trying things out at cornerback, though rookie Blessuan Austin has been a revelation on the outside, with Brian Poole and the safeties consistently locking down the slots. Of course, this will be the unit's first real test in two months, and much hinges upon whether All-Pro safety Jamal Adams (knee sprain) can suit up. Either way, this matchup isn't really a deterrent for Lamar Jackson's outlook, though it's not quite as porous as it once looked.
