Back again in Week 9 with the Jets Fantasy Four Downs. Here are four fantasy options for the Jets with advice on how to use them heading into Week 9.
First Down- Brandon Marshall- Play- Brandon Marshall has been vocal about returning to Miami, and this is his first game back since they traded him in 2012. That’s a long time to hold a grudge and with the news that he was shaken by the possibility of being traded from the Jets, expect big things from the big wide out this week. His targets were down last week facing Joe Haden, but this week match ups on the outside are favorable to a big bodied receiver.
Second Down- Quincy Enunwa- Play- Quincy Enunwa is blossoming as a receiver right in front of our eyes. Jets fans saw this coming a while back but his explosive plays are now gaining attention around the country. He’s scored a touchdown in the last two weeks and was just 7 yards short of 100 last week. He will get more touches in the passing game so in a PPR league he is a good start. On the flip side, if you have Kenny Stills for MIA it might be a good week to start him. He has speed to take the top off of the defense and we all know how poorly the Jets have played against big passes.
Third Down- Bilal Powell- Play- Now Powell is a tough Fantasy prospect. He gets in the game and makes big plays, however he just doesn’t get a RB1 amount of touches. The Dolphins are 30th in yards allowed on the ground, and with six teams on a Bye this week he is a waiver wire pick up you throw right into your line up for a better player on the Bye. Chan Gailey has not forced the ball into Powell’s hands, and similar to Enunwa he has been making the most of his opportunities. Making Powell a mainstay in your starting Fantasy lineup is a stretch but he’s a great value pick up and start this week.
Fourth Down- Jets Defense- Sit- Despite the forecast calling for rain which can lead to a low scoring game, this is not the best week to start the Jets. The aforementioned big play potential against us this week is real and the special teams unit has been lackluster. The defense will have one or two big sacks, but after we let the Browns put 28 points on us, I would stay away from the Jets Defense. If your defense is on a Bye and you’re looking for a replacement look at the Dallas Defense against the Browns, Only owned in 35% of leagues.
