The Jaguars had been struggling against opposing tight ends this season. But they certainly didn't struggle against
Coming off a 100-yard performance last week against Pittsburgh, Cameron managed one fourth-quarter snag for five yards. He has just nine catches for 110 yards in the other five games combined.
The Pro Bowler from a year ago will attempt to recapture his 2013 form when the Browns host Oakland in Week 8.
The Jaguars looked incapable of stopping tight ends earlier in the season, but the onslaught has slowed a bit recently. What does that mean for
Cameron has been a disappointment this season, though he showed major signs of life by going off for 102 yards and a touchdown in Week 6. He will look to keep that going against a Jaguars defense that is allowing 12.0 Fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends, however that number might be a bit misleading. Since being torched by the Colts' duo for 22 points in Week 3, the Jaguars have allowing just 18 Fantasy points combined to their last three tight ends, including just one touchdown.
Cameron hasn't been quite as big a part of the team's offense as we expected this season, and was targeted just five times even in his breakout last week. He is by no means a must-start option, but Cameron should be viewed as a top-10 tight end for Week 7.
Yeah the 102 yards look good -- they look like the Cameron we saw much of last year -- but the three catches and five targets don't. He had three catches on seven targets Week 5 at Tennessee, and it's safe to say Fantasy owners weren't pleased with his production then.
Of course, three catches and five targets take on a whole new meaning when the quarterback is just 8 for 17 passing, as Brian Hoyer was in Week 6. The Browns didn't need him to throw any more than that, in part because of Cameron's big play.
So did Cameron earn himself more targets the next time the Browns throw the ball a normal amount? It's certainly plausible. This game shows why he's at least worth stashing in Fantasy even if you're not quite ready to activate him for Week 7 at Jacksonville (though you have to like that matchup).
Cameron got his team rolling in the second quarter by working his way wide open for a 41-yard catch to the Pittsburgh 5, setting up the touchdown that put Cleveland ahead to stay. Just minutes later he got a step on Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen and gathered in a pass that eventually landed him in the end zone.
His season receiving total was nearly doubled - he entered with 103 yards through the air. Cameron will seek to maintain his momentum next Sunday against the host Jaguars.
