-Jamison Crowder caught eight of 10 targets against Buffalo, totaling only 66 yards but scoring once. He finishes his first season with the Jets with 78 catches for 833 yards and six touchdowns on 122 targets. He stayed healthy after injuries derailed much of his final two seasons in Washington, and he set a career high in receptions as a result. Perhaps his numbers this year were a bit maxed out, but I'm optimistic that he can maintain his target volume while increasing his efficiency next year, especially if Sam Darnold improves. Something like 85 catches for 1,000 yards and six touchdowns would be closer to my 2020 expectations.
-Baker Mayfield might be worse than I thought he was, but I still think the fired Freddie Kitchens is the person most responsible for the unique extent of Cleveland's 2019 failure. The team typically played as if it hadn't practiced at any point, and the problem was compounded by GM John Dorsey's poor handling of the offensive line personnel. Still, even with excuses factored in, 22 touchdowns to 21 interceptions (59.4 completion percentage, 7.2 YPA) is tough to sell in an optimistic light. Mayfield was often inaccurate this year, even when he had ample time to throw. It would help if Odell Beckham leaves the yips behind in 2020, because his uncharacteristic drops issues were a meaningful setback this year. He finishes his cursed season in Cleveland with 74 receptions for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns on 133 targets
