Opponent: Seattle Seahawks
Location: CenturyLink Field (Away)
This may be one of the more controversial quarterback situations in the NFL but for fantasy owners it means very little. Mark Sanchez has the job but he is largely irrelevant for fantasy. With the very tough Seattle Seahawks on the slate for this week, Sanchez is one of the worst fantasy quarterback options this week. As for Tim Tebow, he’s barely worth a mention at all.
Ever since his three touchdown game a few weeks back, Shonn Greene appears to finally have taken a stranglehold on the Jets starting job. Seattle is so tough against the run that this is largely irrelevant – this matchup makes Greene barely a top 25 running back this week. If you have a viable alternative, leave him on the bench. With Greene’s resurgence, Bilal Powell is now merely a handcuff and one not worth bothering with since the Jets offense is so awful.
There are some intriguing options here. Ever since Santonio Holmes went on IR, Jeremy Kerley has emerged as the most reliable fantasy option. This week’s matchup is so bad that even Kerley must stay on your bench. If Kerley isn’t starting for you, then the same goes for the remaining mediocre wide receivers Stephen Hill, Chaz Schillens and Clyde Gates.
Of all the fantasy players on the Jets, the only one I would consider starting this week is Dustin Keller who clearly has the best chemistry with Sanchez of all the Jets receivers. With that said he is only a low end starter and if you have someone else in the low end category you may be better off going with them since Keller isn’t a safe bet this week due to the matchup.
