QB Jay Cutler faces Jets for first time since New York briefly talked to him during offseason about making free agent visit. Instead, Jets signed Josh McCown and trip for Cutler never materialized.

Has 797 yards passing with seven TDs and two INTs in three starts vs. Jets. ... RB Jay Ajayi ran for 122 yards in Dolphins' opener, snapping streak of 17 games in which Chargers hadn't allowed 100-yard rusher. Has 1,277 yards rushing and six TDs in past 12 games, including five 100-yard games and three of 200 yards or more rushing. ... RB-KR Kenyan Drake had 96-yard kickoff return for TD in teams' previous meeting last November. ... WR Jarvis Landry tied career high with 13 catches vs. Chargers last week. Six of his receptions came on third down, which ranks him tied for third in NFL despite having played just one game. ...

RB Matt Forte had 91 yards from scrimmage yards last week, giving him 5.8 yards per touch and ranking him fifth among NFL RBs through two games.

Newly acquired WR Jermaine Kearse had two TD catches last week and leads Jets with 11 receptions for 123 yards. ... TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins likely to make season debut after being suspended first two games for violating league's substance abuse policy. ...

Fantasy Tip: Ajayi a bit banged up, but coach Adam Gase not concerned, making Dolphins RB a must-start against Jets' suspect run defense.
