Trust = spike production for that player


Kenny Pickett: Sunday was more of the same from Pickett this season.

He completed 14-of-23 passes for 126 yards without a touchdown.

Pickett is still without a QB1 scoring week this season, and over the past three games, he has averaged 5.2 yards per pass attempt. That is ahead of only Tommy DeVito (4.8 Y/A) over that span.

We will not be picking a spot on the road against this Cleveland defense as a fulcrum point for Pickett to turn the tides this season. He is a back-end QB2.

The Browns are allowing a league-low 8.9 passing points per game to quarterbacks.

When these teams played in Week 2, Pickett was 15-of-30 for 222 yards with a touchdown and an interception, closing that week as QB29 (10.3 points).
