  • The Jets were a league-worst 2-of-14 (14.3%) in converting third downs in Week 1.
  • 61.1% of the Cleveland yardage in Week 1 was gained via rushing, the highest rate in the league.
  • The Browns averaged 3.9 yards per passing play in Week 1, ahead of only the Cowboys (3.8).
  • 50% of Jacoby Brissett’s pass attempts came on non-first downs needing seven or more yards, trailing only Dak Prescott (65.5%) in Week 1.
  • 41.2% of his attempts came on 3rd down, the highest rate of Week 1.

Trust = spike production for that player


Jacoby Brissett: The Browns did their best to avoid passing the football unless they were forced. When they did pass, the results weren’t pretty as Brissett closed Week 1 ranking 31st in completion percentage (52.9%) with the lowest yards per pass attempt (4.3 Y/A) in the league. Just 11.1% of Brissett’s throws produced an EPA value of 1.0 or higher (lowest in the league) while only Daniel Jones and Dak Prescott produced a lower EPA per dropback in Week 1.

Even as a home favorite, Brissett carries low-level fantasy appeal outside of desperation in QB2 formats.
