Week 15: at New York Jets

All WR vs NYJ

FBG says: Neutral matchup. DeShaun Watson has not exceeded 300+ yards passing since week 5 and has multiple passing touchdowns in just three of his last nine games. The Texans are winning though because Watson is making the most of every pass, averaging 8.3 yards per attempt with a 70% completion percentage and only two interceptions in his last seven games. The Texans running game has vastly improved as the season has progressed, which in turn has limited Watson's passing volume. The limited passing volume has also affected star receiver DeAndre Hopkins. After starting the season off with five straight games of 78+ yards receiving, he has hit that mark in only three of his last eight games. There is reason for hope this week, as the Jets rank 30th in points allowed to opposing wide receivers, and have given up nine games of 100+ yards receiving. Demaryius Thomas has yet to really emerge as a secondary weapon for the Texans, averaging 39 yards receiving on 3.6 receptions per game. Thomas is not the player he once was, but similar to Hopkins, there just isn't enough volume for him to make much noise on a weekly basis. KeKe Coutee hasn't played since week 12 and continues to be limited in practice. Coach Bill O'Brien said Coutee is trending towards being able to play on Saturday and more news on his status should emerge as the week progresses. While the New York Jets rushing defense is one of the worst units in the league, the secondary has overachieved this season, as they currently rank 16th in the league in passing yards allowed (243.8 yards) per game. This is impressive considering the advantageous passing situations that have frequently occurred for opposing teams due to the Jets poor run defense, and while cornerbacks Morris Claiborne and Trumaine Johnson have had their problems in coverage as of late, this unit has played above their potential for much of their season. The problems in the last two weeks can directly be attributed to the loss of Marcus Maye, who despite playing in only six games this season, had flashed great potential alongside fellow safety Jamal Adams. Since week 12, the Jets have allowed four receivers to go over 70+ yards receiving, including 104 yards to Taywan Taylor and 104 yards to Robert Foster this past week. With superstar wideout DeAndre Hopkins coming to town this week, the Jets secondary has their work cut out for them, and they will receive no help from their defensive line who will be overmatched in the run game.
