Game Overview ::

By papy324>>
  • The Jets almost always allow at least one significant stat line.
  • Ty Johnson is underpriced for his role if Tevin Coleman sits.
  • Myles Gaskin is underpriced for his role if Malcolm Brown and Phillip Lindsay sit.
  • Devante Parker brings a nice floor/ceiling combination at his price.

The 3-10 Jets come into this game worse than their record. How can you be worse than 3-10? Robert Saleh’s squad has a sorry negative 171 point differential on the year. The only other three teams in their realm of ineptitude are the Lions (-141), Texans (-179), and Jaguars (-160). Those teams all have worse records than the Jets. The Jets are fortunate to be 3-10.

Robert Saleh wants to win with mistake-free football on offense and strong defense. The problem with that formula is his team has a turnover-prone rookie QB, and they’re appalling on defense. This week they get a Dolphins defense that is middling against both the pass and the run but is defined by their style of play rather than their middle of the pack DVOA rankings. The Dolphins play man coverage and blitz at one of the highest rates in the league, and Zach Wilson isn’t the type of QB that is likely to do well against pressure. When these teams met in Week 11, Joe Flacco was under center. Flacco is much better equipped to deal with this type of defense than Wilson. The Jets coaching staff seemed willing to let Wilson throw the past two weeks, making it reasonable to expect them to try and let their young QB win this game.

The 6-7 Dolphins enter this game off a late-season bye that every team covets late in the year. After starting 1-7, the Fish have ripped off five straight wins and are only one game behind a pack of AFC teams who are all battling for the final wildcard spot. No team has ever started 1-7 and made the playoffs (only three teams have started 1-5 before making the playoffs). Even with an extra game and expanded playoff field, it would be quite the feat for the Dolphins to reach the post-season.

The Dolphins playoff quest is aided this week by their opponent, who sports one the worst defenses in recent memory, managing to rank 32nd in DVOA against the pass, and 31st in DVOA against the run. The Jets allow offenses to choose how they want to move the ball so there is no reason for the Dolphins to deviate from their normal approach of a balanced pass-leaning offense that plays at a moderate speed (15th situational neutral pace). The Dolphins will look to roll over the sorry defense of the Jets while creating turnovers and eventually running out the clock up by multiple scores in the 4th quarter.

Likeliest Game Flow :: 

This game has a low total of 42 because the Jets are projected for their usual 17 points. The Jets have produced 17/17/21/18/9 points in their past five games, so their team total feels about right. The Dolphins should be able to have their way on offense, which will eventually force the Jets to cut bait and let Wilson throw around 40 times. That will lead to turnovers, and the Dolphins should be able to win this game going away in the fourth quarter.
