NFL Weather Report for Week 4

Tyler Conklin caught 4-of-6 targets for 58 yards in the Jets’ Week 4 loss to the Chiefs.
Conklin routinely worked open down the middle of the field against the heavy zone rates of the Chiefs, highlighted by a 25-yard catch-and-run. Both Jeremy Ruckert and C.J. Uzomah also contributed for the Jets, meaning Conklin’s tantalizing upside could be held in check through a messy rotation for the time being.

Allen Lazard caught all three targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Jets’ Week 4 loss to the Chiefs.
Quarterback Zach Wilson didn’t look Lazard’s way often, but managed to fit a tight throw between two defenders for a touchdown pass in the third quarter. The Jets would tack on a two-point conversion to knot the game but would not score again. Lazard’s fantasy value is almost entirely tied to his ability to find the end zone considering modest volume with Wilson under center.
Added 3:49 am (EST)
Breece Hall rushed six times for 56 yards in the Jets’ Week 4 loss to the Chiefs, adding 13 yards on three receptions.
The highlight of the game for Hall came in the third quarter when he sprung loose up the middle for a 43-yard gain, only to see Dalvin Cook trudge along to 3.2 yards per carry behind him for the remainder of the game. The Jets backed themselves into a corner in signing Cook, who at this point is just syphoning touches from the more dynamic Hall. Maybe Hall can see a higher rate of touches against the anemic Broncos run defense in Week 5.

Zach Wilson completed 28-of-39 passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns in the Jets’ 23-20, Week 4 loss to the Chiefs, adding 14 yards on two carries and losing a fumble.
The fumble occurred on a botched snap half way through the fourth quarter and allowed the Chiefs to run out the clock on the subsequent possession, leaving the Jets at a disappointing 1-3 record. Head coach Robert Saleh continues to have his quarterback’s back, but the longer the season goes on without results could force a change of scenery under center. Wilson’s two touchdowns went to Allen Lazard in a tight window and backup tight end C.J. Uzomah in the back of the end zone. Wilson fed his alpha wide receiver, Garrett Wilson, 14 targets but managed just 6.7 yards per completion to the standout second-year pass-catcher. Up next for the Jets is a showdown of mediocrity against the reeling Broncos in Week 5.
Added 3:44 am (EST)
Skyy Moore failed to catch either of his targets in the Chiefs’ Week 4 win over the Jets, adding 19 yards on two carries.
Moore fell victim to reduced pass volume but also was not on the same page as quarterback Patrick Mahomes on this night. He continues to play the most snaps of players not named Travis Kelce but has yet to return any meaningful counting stats with the opportunity. His next opportunity to disappoint comes in Week 5 when the Chiefs travel to Minnesota to face the Vikings.
Added 3:40 am (EST)
Kadarius Toney caught both targets for 22 yards in the Chiefs’ Week 4 win over the Jets.
Toney can’t seem to garner a full snap rate as the Chiefs continue rotating through their wide receivers faster than Bob Ross did with paint brushes. One would think the team would feature their happy little accident at greater frequency considering they sought him out through trade last year. Until then, Toney can be left alone on fantasy benches.

R. Rice - WR
Rashee Rice caught 3-of-5 targets for 32 yards in the Chiefs’ Week 4 win over the Jets.
Rice has seen a steady increase to his snap rate over the previous three games and continues to tease fantasy upside without yet delivering fully. For what it’s worth, he is now playing well ahead of Kadarius Toney and Justin Watson and appears to be a ticking time bomb ready to erupt at any moment. Maybe he can finally return a fantasy-worthy score in Week 5 when the Chiefs take on the Vikings on the road in Minnesota.
Added 3:35 am (EST)
Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught 1-of-2 targets for six yards in the Chiefs’ Week 4 win over the Jets.
Valdes-Scantling continues to be an afterthought in the Chiefs vaunted pass offense, routinely running empty downfield routes designed to influence opposing safeties. His snap rates have seen a steady decline as the season has progressed, leaving Valdes-Scantling bereft of any fantasy value until further notice.
