It feels like the Jets are starting to get their groove back in the run game. After some ugly early season output, things are rounding into form. Shonn Greene had his strongest game of the season last time out against the Chargers.

This week the Jets face Buffalo, a team with one of the worst statistical run defenses in the league. It is a team that could very well be without its best lineman, Kyle Williams.

For what it is worth, the Jets have had a lot of recent success running it against Buffalo. I am not sure how relevant this is because there are many different players and coaches now. I do think if the Jets block the way they have been the last few weeks, there are going to be running lanes. Greene is a guy who hits his holes hard and runs through arm tackles. I could also see the Jets trying to emphasize the run game to control the ball and keep Buffalo's high powered offense off the field.

Greene would probably be my top Jets recommendation to play in fantasy this week.
