New York Jets stun Cleveland Browns, 23-16

The Browns were in a tough spot, losing a bunch of players (namely receivers) to the COVID-reserve list suddenly Saturday, but they were still near-touchdown favorites. They entered halftime with only four rushing yards despite having two top-20 RBs in Fantasy Pros’ expert consensus ranks and became the second team in a row to lose to Adam Gase … Frank Gore and La’Mical Perine had more rushing yards than Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, although at least the Cleveland backs were active as receivers and both scored. Fantasy managers, however, expected a much different game script … Austin Hooper predictably saw a bunch of targets with so few alternatives in the weird Browns situation, but he disappointed by turning 15 of them into just 71 scoreless yards against a Jets defense that’s been by far the friendliest to fantasy tight ends … Baker Mayfield lost a crucial fumble late, while Jamison Crowder had a nice game, catching a touchdown and throwing another.
