Jets Fantasy Outlooks

Chris Raybon breaks down Adam Gase’s playcalling tendencies to forecast who will benefit most.

  • The best comp for Le’Veon Bell among RBs who Gase has coached is Matt Forte. Gase fed Forte 20.2 touches per game in 2015, which would have ranked sixth in the league last season.
  • Since 2013, the top slot receiver in Gase’s offense has averaged 7.2 targets, 5.1 catches, 50.3 yards, and 0.33 touchdowns per game. Last season, those numbers would have equated to only a WR47 finish in standard but WR30 in PPR. Either way, it makes Jamison Crowder undervalued. According to FantasyPros’ consensus ADP, Crowder is being drafted as the WR65 in standard and WR57 in PPR.
  • Quincy Enunwa flourished in the slot last season. The big-bodied wideout posted a 33-20-271-1 line from the slot but just 35-18-176-0 from outside. The real issue for Enunwa is his connection with Sam Darnold. Enunwa received 10 deep targets, but only two were catchable and he dropped one, catching the other for 41 yards. In 2016 he also received 10 deep targets, but eight were catchable, and he hauled in all eight for 278 yards and a touchdown. Over the past three seasons, no team in the NFL ran fewer plays per game than Adam Gase’s Dolphins (58.0). Darnold completed only 47.6% of his passes over 10 yards and threw a pick on 7.3% of them, and then the team went out and got Darnold an array of check-down options in Bell, Crowder, and Ty Montgomery, which, coupled with Gase’s slow pace, could cause perimeter options like Enunwa and Robby Anderson to struggle for weekly consistency. UPDATE (Aug. 19): The Jets have showed a lot of up-tempo offense in the preseason, and Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports that Gase “wanted to win games by shortening them” in Miami due to personnel limitations, so — barring injury — pace shouldn’t be an issue for this team.
