David Njoku over 49.5 receiving yards
The Holiday season has been very kind to David Njoku. Over the last 3 weeks, the Browns TE has scored 4 touchdowns and recorded 240 total yards. It’s the kind of play Cleveland fans have been waiting to see from Njoku on a consistent basis since his arrival. Having just posted a career-high in TD’s, it’s safe to say that Njoku is going to be a prime target against a Jets team that has allowed more than this total against opposing TE’s in 4 of their last 6 games.
Joe Flacco’s ability to come in and not only manage the offense, but elevate it, is beyond commendable. He’s clearly comfortable looking for Njoku and Cooper, who are dominating target-share right now. Bet on that trend to continue by backing this relatively conservative total.
Amari Cooper over 58.5 receiving yards
In a near-identical fashion to Njoku, Coop has been rolling back the years over the last month. A 265-yard explosion against the Texans highlights just how efficient he’s been, and it’s clear, as aforementioned, that Flacco has a favorite pair of targets.
The Jets might have a strong pass defense, but Flacco’s ability to take what the opponents give him is unmatched. He’s happy to sling passes underneath all day if he has too, and with Cooper drawing 4+ receptions in each of his last 3, he’s bound to get some work with high YAC potential.
Breece Hall anytime TD
On the Jets side of things, Hall might only have 4 scores on the season, but 2 of those came last week. If he can get around 15 carries against the Browns, who rank 19th in rushing touchdowns allowed per game, then we should see Hall get plenty of chances to find the endzone.
What also correlates here is that Cleveland’s offense has become so one-dimensional that all the Jets need to do is dictate tempo and keep Flacco and company sidelined. This means even more looks for Hall, who has looked like one of the NFL’s best at times this year.
New York Jets under 17.5 points
The Jets were showing signs of life with Zach Wilson at QB and while Trevor Siemiean did lead them to a win against Washington, he only threw for 217 yards. I can’t see the Browns being as poor defensively as the Commanders, and while they should find the end zone a couple of times, the Browns are red-hot and in playoff mode. They need to keep racking up wins and can’t afford to slip against a struggling Jets team. The odds aren’t great here, but I think the Jets stall out at around 14 points.
