Fantasy football projections, Week 16: Browns vs. Jets featuring Jason Campbell, Josh Gordon and Chris Ivory

We break down the Week 16 matchup between the Cleveland Browns and the New York Jets.

The Week 16 matchup between the Cleveland Browns and the New York Jets should be a defensive battle. We've got all the fantasy projections for you courtesy of numberfire.

Cleveland Browns

Quarterback Jason Campbell was below average against a porous Chicago Bears defense last week. He threw a pair of picks in the game and only found the end zone once. He has been incredibly inconsistent each week, but the Jets' inconsistent defense could help in Week 16.

When Campbell throws the ball down the field against the Jets, he'll no doubt find his No. 1 receiver Josh Gordon for some big plays. Gordon has proven himself to be a fantasy superstar this season. His numbers are comparable to many other star receivers, yet he missed the first two games of the season due to a suspension. Gordon is a no doubt must-start player in the fantasy finals.

New York Jets

Quarterback Geno Smith has managed to eclipse the 200-yard passing mark just once in the last seven games. That's not exactly the stuff that fantasy football dreams are made of. Earlier this season it looked like Smith might surprise a lot of teams and keep the Jets in the playoff hunt. Unfortunately, he's not looking good these days and his lack of production affects every other offensive player on the team.

When Smith inevitably struggles against the stout defense of the Browns, he'll be forced to hand the ball off to Chris Ivory. Ivory is easily the lone bright spot on the Jets' offense right now. He averaged six yards per carry last week and although he typically gets fewer than 15 carries per game, he does provide production when he gets the chance. The challenge with starting him in the fantasy finals is that his ceiling is low and he doesn't find the end zone often enough.
