Game Recaps

The New York Jets allowed 23 points and 375 yards of offense in their Week 2 loss to the Cleveland Browns. The defense at least recorded one interception and three sacks.

Fantasy Impact: The Jets have so far posted one huge week and one bad week this season, the bad one coming without their star linebacker C.J. Mosley. The Jets are not a particularly strong defense, and can only be used in good matchups -- which next week's tilt against the New England Patriots is decidedly not.


Sam Ficken converted his only field goal (from 40+ yards) in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Ficken assumes the kicker job after a horrendous string of kicker options throughout the preseason, and so far, so good. Ficken is unlikely to present enough upside or reliability in the Jets' offense, which is trending down. Ficken is not likely to be a Top-12 kicker this season.


Ryan Griffin blanked by Browns

By Mark Leipold

Ryan Griffin was not targeted in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin is droppable if owned in all formats, especially with only two games left as the starter.


Demaryius Thomas caught one of his two targets for -1 yard in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas was traded mid-week to the Jets from New England, so it's no surprise he was lightly used in Week 2 as he picks up the offense. Until he is a regular player for the passing game, he has no fantasy appeal.


Jamison Crowder caught four of his six targets for 40 yards in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Crowder came way back to Earth after a massive outing in Week 1 against the Bills. Crowder's upside is significantly capped with third-stringer Luke Falk calling the shots, and he's not far from being droppable unless Falk decides to lock on to him.


Robby Anderson caught four of his six targets for 81 yards in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson's performance doesn't jump off the page, but is a strong outing against a tough matchup in Denzel Ward, who held Corey Davis catchless in Week 1. Anderson seemed to be the clear favorite of Luke Falk early on, and does not appear poised to take much of a hit in Sam Darnold's absence.


Ty Montgomery rushed three times for 25 yards and caught all three of his targets for 15 yards in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Montgomery is a true handcuff to Le'Veon Bell, but little more at this point. In standard sized leagues, it's hard to make a case for Montgomery as a bench stash, but in deeper leagues, he's one of the highest confidence handcuff players.


The Browns defense put up a dominant performance against the Jets in a 23-3 win in Week 2. Cleveland managed four sacks and forced one turnover.

Fantasy Impact: Myles Garrett picked up three sacks in the game to lead the way. The Cleveland defense played well, but it also came against backups Trevor Siemian and Luke Falk. They will have a much tougher test against the Rams in Week 3.


Cleveland Browns kicker Austin Seibert made all three of his field goals in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2. He also added two extra points.

Fantasy Impact: Seibert didn't attempt a field goal in Week 1 but it was good to see him hit all of his attempts on Monday night after a rough preseason. He has some upside on this Browns offense if he can keep hitting kicks. Cleveland faces the Rams in Week 3.


Cleveland Browns tight end Demetrius Harris caught a four-yard pass in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Harris saw a full workload with David Njoku leaving during the first quarter with a concussion. If Njoku isn't cleared in time for Week 3's game against the Rams, expect Harris to play most of the game.


Cleveland Browns wide receiver Damion Ratley caught two passes for 50 yards in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Ratley operated as the No. 3 receiver with Rashard Higgins inactive. The second-year wideout wound up finishing second on the team in receiving yards. He now has four catches for 67 yards through two games.


Cleveland Browns running back D'Ernest Johnson carried the ball three times for eight yards and added three catches for 42 yards in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson played the No. 2 role behind Nick Chubb with Dontrell Hilliard dealing with a concussion. He would presumably do the same in Week 3 against the Rams if Hilliard doesn't get cleared in time.


Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry caught 3-of-7 targets for 32 yards in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Landry had a quiet game, with his longest reception of 25 yards coming with Odell Beckham Jr. on the sidelines getting checked out by the trainer. With Beckham in town, there is a legitimate concern for Landry's output going forward. He now has just seven catches for 99 yards through two games. He will be a WR4 in Week 3 against the Rams.


Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb carried the ball 18 times for 62 yards and a touchdown in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: He also added four catches for 36 yards in the win. Chubb's touchdown run was impressive as he weaved through the defense and broke a few tackles on his way to the end zone. Chubb now has 137 rushing yards, a touchdown, seven catches, and 46 receiving yards through two games. He will look to find the end zone again in Week 3 against the Rams.


Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught 6-of-10 targets for 161 yards and a touchdown in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Beckham hauled in a 33-yard reception on the first drive and then ripped off an impressive 89-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. The star receiver now has 13 catches for 232 yards and a touchdown through two games. He will be a WR1 again in Week 3 against the Rams.


Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 19-of-35 passes for 325 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Mayfield got the win but the Cleveland offense still isn't firing on all cylinders. His touchdown pass was an 89-yarder to Odell Beckham in the third quarter. Mayfield now has 610 passing yards, two touchdowns, and four interceptions through two games. He will face the Rams in Week 3.


Jamal Adams was limited to just five solo tackles and a TFL in a MNF loss to the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Impact: The number one ranked safety on FantasyPros has started off the 2019 season with two underwhelming games in terms of fantasy production. Perhaps a matchup with the New England Patriots will cure his woes.


Le'Veon Bell rushed 21 times for 68 yards and lost a fumble as the Jets fell to the Browns 23-3 on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Bell also caught 10-of-10 targets for 61 yards. Bell served as the lone bright spot on a night that saw the offense move backward more than it moved forward. His ability to generate yardage out of thin air seems no worse for the wear, despite his year-long absence and below average offensive line. While sustainability will certainly become an issue as the season progresses, Bell will remain a low-end, volume-based RB1 as the Jets take on New England in Week 3.


Christian Kirksey posted only four total tackles in a win against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Kirksey has not had a big game through the early goings of this season, as his teammate, Joe Schobert, has been the one posting double-digit figures. Kirksey looks to get back on track this Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.


Joe Schobert racked up ten solo tackles and three individual tackles, as well as one TFL.

Fantasy Impact: Schobert led his team for the second week in a row in solo and total tackles. He is among the best LB's in terms in of fantasy production and should remain in your lineups this Sunday.
