We are back with the Jets Fantasy Four Downs. Here are four fantasy options for the Jets with advice on how to use them heading into Week 6.
First Down- Brandon Marshall- Play- Statistically speaking, Marshall had a great game against the Steelers, 8 Catches, 114 yards with one score. Arizona is a top 5 passing defense making Marshall a difficult daily fantasy play. There are much better players available for a breakout game, but in a year-long league Marshall is a lock in your starting rotation. In a year where the Jets passing offense has been shaky to say the least, Marshall’s targets have gone up in every game.
Second Down- Jets Defense- Sit- Jets fans expected a lot from the defense this year, Many picked the unit with visions of sacks from the defensive line and turnovers caused from the pressure. That has not been the case. The Jets defense has been in the bottom of the league for fantasy points. The highlight of the defense is they are second in the league for rushing yards allowed per game, a stat that does not bring much fantasy value. The defense is at the bottom of the league in takeaways with only 3 on the year, making them an easy sit with Carson Palmer returning.
Third Down- Austin Seferian-Jenkins-Sit- Last week, Austin Seferian-Jenkins debuted for the Jets as their new tight end. He was targeted twice and caught both balls for 17 yards. He is new and still adjusting to the offense, but keep him on your radar if you are looking for a TE2 or Flex spot with injuries and bye weeks coming fast. I expect more and more targets for him going forward. He’s a big target and is only owned in 3% of major leagues. I am listing him as a sit for this game, but if you are looking to get ahead in the waiver wire, he could be a great pick up.
Fourth Down- Eric Decker- Season Sit- Eric Decker has been placed on the IR and is our first official Season Sit of this year. He won’t do much for you going forward unless you want to throw him in your lineup to taunt your opponent. Here are some waiver pickups available in most leagues at WR for those of you who lost this high scoring wide receiver:
Dorial Green-Beckham, Philly. He is now looking like Philly’s solid WR2 and is a big bodied red zone target who usually gains most of his fantasy points from getting into the end zone. He is only owned in 5% of Fantasy Leagues.
Phillip Dorsett, Indy. He is coming available in leagues as his owners are fed up with his Boom/Bust fantasy numbers (58% Owned, trending downward), but with the Texans coming into town this is a good week to scoop him up.
Kenny Britt, LA. He is only owned in 5% of leagues, but he leads the Rams in receiving. He is efficient in securing catches on his targets. Detroit has let up a lot of Fantasy points to receivers this year and I expect a big game against them from Britt.
