Week 14: at Buffalo Bills
FBG says: Bad matchup. Sam Darnold looks likely to return this week, and surprisingly, the Jets truly need him back under center. Darnold has suffered through a mostly poor rookie year, completing just 55% of his throws for just 4.5 adjusted net yards per attempt, third-lowest among 34 qualifying passers. But 39-year-old Josh McCown has been just as bad in relief, and Darnold isn't without promise. His arm talent has been as advertised, as he's flashed the ability to hit tight windows downfield. Still, he's been wildly erratic on far too many throws and shown a habit of firing into traffic he didn't seem to see. He's produced little beyond dump-offs and underneath slot routes, and none of his receivers have carved out any usable fantasy value. Even with solid volume, this is a low-efficiency, low-impact passing game that lacks real weapons. None of it usable in fantasy. On paper, the Buffalo pass defense has been historically great over the past month, allowing just 134 yards per game and picking off 6 passes. But it's worth noting the quarterbacks they've faced over that span: Mitchell Trubisky, Josh McCown, Blake Bortles, and Ryan Tannehill. That gives some perspective on the numbers, but doesn't take away from how stout this unit has become as they have allowed the fewest passing yards per game at just 203 on the year. This is definitely a talented, aggressive pass defense that often makes life difficult for opposing passers. Tre'Davious White has been an All-Pro shutdown guy all year, while safeties Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde have been solid in downfield coverage and can swipe at the ball. Up front, a dynamic pass rush (31 sacks) comes from all angles and disrupts things further. The Bills have feasted on great matchups of late, but have also pushed a handful of top passers (Aaron Rodgers and Kirk Cousins, for example) into inefficient days.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 13 vs TEN (6 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)
One of the aspects of the Jets offense which is hardest to figure out is the lack of impact plays by Enunwa. The one guy who really seems to be a great fit for a dink and dunk offense, Enunwa once again saw just six targets and the three directed towards him in the second half were not high quality chances.
2018 Week 12 vs NE (4 / 4 / 73 / 0 rec)
Enunwa did a lot of his damage from the slot, catching all four of his targets and leading the team in yards. However, the minimal targets are surprising considering how shallow the receiving depth is, how often he was on the field (60 of 64 offensive snaps) and how often the Jets chose to throw.
2018 Week 10 vs BUF (8 / 4 / 18 / 0 rec)
Enunwa is battling an ankle sprain, so it could be that his lack of production since returning to the team is in part due to that. However the overall struggles of Josh McCown against what should have been a very beatable defense, as well as the unimaginative playcalling hampered him a ton on Sunday. Enunwa's injury made it hard for him to break coverage, but the Jets continue to struggle in creating ways to help him or anyone else.
2018 Week 9 vs MIA (4 / 3 / 40 / 0 rec)
Enunwa, in his first game post-injury, looked good in limited action, and made a spectacular leaping grab to extend a drive, as well as another catch where he added some yards after the catch and dragged some defenders with him.
2018 Week 6 vs IND (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Enunwa left the game at the start of the second quarter with an ankle injury after fumbling the ball. His injury has been reported as a high ankle sprain and he is expected to miss three weeks or more.
2018 Week 5 vs DEN (5 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
It was a notable day just for what didn't happen -- quarterback Sam Darnold and Enunwa never connected. Enunwa did drop a pass and on one pass Darnold missed him, but the Broncos dedicated themselves to shutting this connection down and they were successful at that.
2018 Week 4 vs JAX (8 / 4 / 66 / 0 rec)
You know the day has gone sideways for the Jets when rookie quarterback Sam Darnold can't even hit security blanket Quincy Enunwa when he's wide open. Darnold sailed a pass on a fourth-and-one near the end of the third quarter which would have set the Jets up for at least a field goal, but the throw was off target. He continues to be the most consistently targeted of any Jets wide receiver, but most of those throws are, at most, intermediate distance.
2018 Week 3 vs CLE (8 / 4 / 57 / 0 rec)
The Jets' plan to dink and dunk their way to victory didn't work when Baker Mayfield came in and torched the defense, but when it did work, Quincy Enunwa was the reason. Enunwa took several screen passes and did a lot of damage after the catch. More than once, Enunwa caught a screen pass and bullied his way to a six or seven yard gain. His 57 yards were all on him, with some downfield blocking help from his fellow receivers.
2018 Week 2 vs MIA (11 / 7 / 92 / 0 rec)
Enunwa was the only thing resembling a reliable receiver for quarterback Sam Darnold, and was also the target of Darnold's first interception. While he didn't find the end zone, he's been targeted frequently during both weeks and is clearly someone Darnold trusts. At one point, Enunwa got open along the back of the end zone while Darnold was scrambling, but the rookie saw him when he was already in the middle of throwing the ball away, and so the pass sailed high.
2018 Week 1 vs DET (10 / 6 / 63 / 1 rec)
After a year off, plus some missed time during both the preseason and training camp, Enunwa seems to be back on track as the Jets go-to guy on short and intermediate routes. He definitely has rookie quarterback Sam Darnold's trust, receiving 10 targets with the next closest getting just three. Enunwa's touchdown came on a short out route, which the receiver then turned upfield on after he received the pass. While a Lions defender caught up with him at the 10-yard line, Enunwa spun through his grasp and slipped a different tackler on his way to the end zone. It's very clear that Darnold trusts Enunwa and will probably look to him early and often in games.
Latest NewsJets | Week 14 injury report for NYJ (Fri Dec 7, 04:29 PM) - New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle), RB Isaiah Crowell (toe), TE Jordan Leggett (knee) and CB Buster Skrine (shoulder) were listed as limited participants for practice Friday, Dec. 7 and each is considered questionable for Week 14 against the Buffalo Bills. OT Kelvin Beachum (knee), RB Trenton Cannon (hamstring), CB Morris Claiborne (shoulder, neck), QB Sam Darnold (foot), WR Quincy Enunwa (ankle), LB Jordan Jenkins (shoulder), LB Darron Lee (not injury related), C Spencer Long (knee, finger, illness), QB Josh McCown (back), LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (thumb), WR Andre Roberts (foot) and TE Eric Tomlinson (elbow) practiced in full and each are off the injury report ahead of Sunday's game. Our View: Anderson and Crowell should play but both have unfavorable matchups at Buffalo this week. The Jets offense will get Sam Darnold back this week, but the Bills defense destroyed them in Week 10 and they are the best D/ST play in this AFC Least matchup.

Our View: Enunwa could get targets against the Bills by default, but he's nothing but a desperation play with the Jets offense struggling to get out of neutral gear these days.

WR Robby Anderson (ankle) and QB Sam Darnold (foot) were limited in practice Friday, Nov. 30, and are listed as questionable. RB Trenton Cannon (hamstring), WR Quincy Enunwa (ankle), LB Jordan Jenkins (shoulder), QB Josh McCown (back, hand), OT Kelvin Beachum (knee), CB Morris Claiborne (shoulder), C Spencer Long (knee, finger), DT Steve McLendon (ankle), TE Eric Tomlinson (elbow) and WR Andre Roberts (foot) fully participated in practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.
