Vyncint Smith, Drops kickoff in season debut

Smith (abdomen) had a seven-yard kickoff return and didn't touch the ball on offense in Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Dolphins.

Analysis: Making his season debut after being taken off IR, Smith dropped the ball on a kickoff and was smothered soon after picking it up, forcing the Jets to start that drive from their own nine-yard line. Smith was involved in some gadget plays that capitalized on his speed last season, but he only played five snaps on offense and wasn't targeted in this one.

Ryan Griffin, Two catches in shutout loss

Griffin caught two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 24-0 loss to Miami.

Analysis: Griffin was actually New York's most productive tight end with Chris Herndon failing to record a catch, but that's not saying much. While Griffin has five catches to Herndon's three over the past three games, neither tight end is doing enough to warrant attention in the fantasy realm, even considering the league-wide dearth of production from the position.

Kaimi Fairbairn, Scores six points in OT loss

Fairbairn converted his lone field-goal attempt and three of four extra-point kicks in Sunday's 42-36 overtime loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Fairbairn's six-point effort snapped a two-game run in which he posted double-digit points and converted all six field-goal tries. The difference against Tennessee was the Texans ability to finish drives. They scored touchdowns on all four of their red zone looks, reversing a trend that had them settling for field goals on four of five red-area appearances the previous two weeks. Fairbairn currently ranks 20th in scoring among kickers with 7.3 points per game.

Brandin Cooks, Has 21 catches in last two games

Cooks caught all nine of his targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-36 overtime loss to Tennessee.

Analysis: Cooks' one-yard touchdown put the Texans up 36-29 with 1:50 left in regulation, but Houston's offense wouldn't touch the ball again, as the Titans tied the game with four seconds left, then drove it down for the winning touchdown on the first possession of overtime. While his team didn't get the result it was looking for, Cooks enjoyed a second consecutive standout performance, and he now has 21 catches for 229 yards and two touchdowns in his last two games. The 27-year-old wide receiver will look to stay hot in Week 7 against the visiting Packers.

Will Fuller, Pushes TD streak to four

Fuller caught six of 11 targets for 123 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-36 loss to Tennessee.

Analysis: Fuller did most of his damage on a 53-yard touchdown in the third quarter, and his touchdown streak now sits at four games. The speedster has performed admirably as the top target for quarterback Deshaun Watson, and staying healthy will be the key for Fuller against the Packers in Week 7 and beyond.
