Jets Fantasy Football Outlook

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Note from John: Welcome Jet_X to the site. He will be providing us with a weekly fantasy football recap and look ahead to the next week.


Here are four fantasy options for the Jets with advice for how to use them heading into Week 4.

First Down- Matt Forte- Play- I like the fantasy prospect of Matt Forte. It was not his best game statistically ending with only 15 carries for 65 yards. However, he moved the pile forward, picked the right hole, and showed the ability to get skinny and pick up hidden yards. Chan Gailey forced two straight red zone possessions in the air when Forte was a viable option on the ground. Look for a bigger role next week.

Second Down- Quincy Enunwa –Play- For the third week in a row Enunwa had a role in the offense with 4 catches. He remains only 34% owned in most Fantasy Leagues and will continue as a may stay in the offense. For a Flex play or WR3 in a PPR league, he’s a great pickup and start. The Jets love using him on third down, and he has continued to be reliable. He will continue to get catches as his confidence grows.

Third Down – Bilal Powell- Sit- He had 10 touches in Week 3 loss to KC. Next week the Jets face the Seahawks. With the prevalence of Forte, I expect less looks for him next week. Forte will run the ball to control the clock next week against a strong defense.

Fourth Down- Ryan Fitzpatrick- Sit- Do I really have to go here or if anyone was really stating Fitz  before bye weeks have begun? If you did, my condolences. 20/44, 188 yards and 6 picks was a rough stat line for Ryan to say the least. I do expect a better game next week, but I would stay far away from him against Seattle. The Jets may try to control to clock on the ground. If you’re looking for an emergency starter behind center, look to Carson Wentz who had another great week and is only owned in 20% of most Fantasy Leagues.
