What is your favorite game-script build and why?

STLCards: The most logical build has the Browns playing with a lead throughout this game. That will lead me to prioritize Nick Chubb in all formats, and it will likely force the Jets to the air come the second half. When you account for that game script and the fact that Le’Veon Bell is dinged up, it’s safe to assume that we will see a lot more than five snaps out of Ty Montgomery this week. Fire him up as an elite value play.

headChopper: I like script of a Browns blowout proceeded with a high volume 2nd half running game. So I like the Cleveland defense paired with the top 2 Cleveland RB’s (Chubb, Johnson).

MrTuttle: Baker comes out firing followed by Chubb milking the clock in the 2H. I think Kitchens will want to get this passing game on track for the Browns and they won’t struggle to rack up a comfortable lead with the Jets Trevor Siemian offense unable to score. Chubb will be heavily involved in the offense in the 1H and will also be relied upon to milk the clock in the 2H. Conversely, while I expect the Jets passing game to be inefficient, I do expect volume to be there which makes New York pass-catchers viable in tournaments.

What is your favorite way to differentiate from the field?

STLCards: The ownership on the Cleveland skill players and the Cleveland defense will be massive. Don’t be afraid to build some lineups with Jets players. You don’t have to go nuts, but there is certainly merit to taking guys like the cheap pass catchers, Ty Montgomery, or even Trevor Siemian with a few lineups.

headChopper: If Lev Bell is active then I want to be different by still playing Ty Montgomery with depressed ownership.

MrTuttle: Take shots at cheap and low-owned Jets pass-catchers. As stated above, while I expect New York’s passing game to be inefficient, I think there will be some volume worth chasing. With Chris Herndon suspended, Ryan Griffin quietly ran a route on 46-of-50 Darnold drop backs and is extremely cheap across the industry. If Demaryius Thomas suits up, he should also be on the field plenty and has some rapport with Siemian from their days in Denver. For his career, DT has averaged 13.48 PPR points per game in 26 games with Siemian under center.

What is your hot take for the game?

STLCards: Nick Chubb finds the end zone three times and goes for 150+ total yards.

headChopper: The Cleveland Browns defense outscores the Jets starting QB

MrTuttle: If active, Demaryius Thomas turns back the clock and tops 100-yards.
