Week 7: vs Minnesota Vikings

All TE vs MIN

FBG says: Good matchup. Sam Darnold may have already arrived. The youngest starting quarterback of the Super Bowl era, Darnold opened his NFL career with a whimper, completing just 56% of his throws over the first 5 weeks. But over the last 2, he's averaged a studly 9.54 yards per attempt and thrown 5 touchdowns. Darnold is a strong-armed prospect, one who's unafraid to test downfield and flashes excellent placement when his mechanics are sound. He's still getting by mostly on quick, short routes, and his slot men remain the Jets' most consistent producers. Quincy Enunwa easily led the team in targets and yardage before his Week 6 injury, and Jermaine Kearse stepped in last week to catch 9 balls. But as Darnold's confidence and fundamentals improve, there will be more opportunity for splash plays. As it stands, this certainly isn't the league's most explosive attack, but it's one that's finally showing fantasy utility. If Darnold keeps developing quickly as a franchise passer, the fortunes of Robby Anderson and Terrelle Pryor will rise, if only gradually. In general, the Vikings pass defense has been disappointing to open 2018. They were last year's second-most dominant unit, but thus far have allowed 4 of 6 quarterbacks to top 260 yards. They faced rookies in the other two games, and even Buffalo's Josh Allen was able to beat them on a handful of tough downfield throws. The pass rush remains dynamic, even without Everson Griffen, but the coverage units have been undermanned and shaky. The cornerbacks have alternated solid performances with bad ones, and it likely won't get better without first-round rookie Mike Hughes. This a group still quite capable of dominating, as it did last week in haranguing Cardinals rookie Josh Rosen. But it's no longer the fantasy-shutdown unit it once was.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 5 vs DEN (3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)

Mostly known for blocking, Tomlinson had a nice catch on a delayed route where he first blocked Von Miller, then went into the flat. He nearly dropped the ball, but was able to hold onto it and turn upfield for a nice gain. Tomlinson had a bigger impact in the run game as he filled in as a fullback on a few runs and sprung the running back loose.

2018 Week 3 vs CLE (2 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)

Like most Jets tight ends, Tomlinson is brought in as a blocker first and foremost. He did have a nice 14-yard catch in the third quarter but that was following a drive where his false start set the Jets back on to their 9 yard line.

2018 Week 2 vs MIA (2 / 1 / 24 / 0 rec)

Tomlinson saw a couple of targets on the day, taking one for 24 yards on a short pass. Other than that, he was relegated to blocking duty.

2018 Week 1 vs DET (1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Tomlinson had just a single target on the day, a short out route for seven yards in the first quarter. He saw the field a fair amount throughout the game but the Jets didn't target their tight ends often, and not at all in the second half.
