Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Claypool came crashing back down to earth last week after a few solid performances and there are now serious questions about whether or not he can be trusted in your starting lineup. In this matchup, Claypool should be viewed as a FLEX play that will need to find the end zone to finish much higher than that.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's coming off a game where he totaled just three receptions and 31 yards. Sure, it was in the snow, but you know what he did the last time he came off a three-catch performance? He caught eight passes for 108 yards and a touchdown. This is one of those matchups where if you simply look at fantasy points allowed, you'll see the Jets rank 13th against them, which is not great, but also not bad. When you see they've faced the eighth-fewest targets despite playing all seven games, that's the giveaway. From an efficiency standpoint, they've allowed 2.42 PPR points per target to tight ends, which ranks as the third-most in the NFL, behind only the Jaguars and Falcons. Kelce leads the NFL in both red zone targets and targets inside the 10-yard line. Well, the Jets have allowed 5-of-11 red zone targets to tight ends go for touchdowns. Start Kelce as an elite TE1 and expect game-breaking upside.We talked about it a lot last week, and we were correct in assuming that Claypool would rank third in wide receiver snaps. The snap count went Smith-Schuster 65, Johnson 59, Claypool 51, and James Washington 18. The one target he saw is hardly ideal, especially knowing they threw the ball 49 times, but given his snaps, you shouldn't be too concerned. Claypool should see a lot of Marcus Peters in coverage this week, and while he's a good cornerback, he can get beat down the field at times. He's allowed 15.3 yards per reception in his coverage this year and has allowed a touchdown every 10.7 targets, so you shouldn't simply scratch Claypool off your potential start list. There have been five wide receivers who've posted top-30 numbers against the Ravens, and four of them were straight-up burners (Terry McLaurin, Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman, and Brandin Cooks). Claypool ran a 4.42-second 40-yard dash but has looked even faster in pads. He should be considered a boom-or-bust WR4 in this matchup.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jets are just 19th against fantasy tight end, Kelce should be a fantasy star at home this week.Claypool bombed last week with 1 reception for -2 yards, he is a boom / bust WR3 against the Ravens 7th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
