Tua Tagovailoa Note

It was confirmed that he was benched last week, as Brian Flores felt like Ryan Fitzpatrick gave the team the best chance to win. I hope you weren't streaming him, as I'd mentioned last week he wasn't a very good play regardless. He's still yet to throw more than 28 pass attempts in a game, hasn't thrown for 250 yards, and hasn't thrown more than two touchdowns. "Well duh, Mike. He hasn't thrown the ball enough." That's my point. Will they try to get him going this week? The Jets and the Jaguars are the only two teams in the league who are well below average against every fantasy position. There are just four teams in the league who've allowed more than 8.0 yards per pass attempt this season, and the Jets are one of them. The league-high 72.8 percent completion-rate they've allowed certainly helps Tagovailoa's case, as no other team has allowed higher than 70.1 percent. Despite teams continually blowing the Jets out, they've thrown the ball 56.7 percent of the time, which ranks as the 12th lowest percentage in the league, which is again, not bad considering. When you add in the 67.6 plays per game their opponents are allowing, you get 36.8 pass attempts per game, which is enough for them to allow 295.0 passing yards per game. The downside is that Tagovailoa has limited pass-catchers in the offense, but it's a good enough matchup to bring him back into the QB2 conversation, just don't expect miracles with his limited volume.
