WR Charone Peake - New York Jets
|6-2, 209||Born: 10-16-1992||College: Clemson||Drafted: Round 7, pick 2016|
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 10 vs BUF (1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
If it wasn't for the lack depth and ability at wide receiver, Peake would likely not be on the roster. As it is, he's a warm body, rarely targeted or effective when he is.
2018 Week 8 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Peake had one nice catch but against the tough Bears secondary, he just couldn't get free on a consistent basis. That's a consistent issue for Peake, who would likely be on the bench if the receiving corps wasn't so injured.
