The last time Favre played in Oakland he captured the hearts of America by playing the night of his dad's death and throwing for 399 yards for the Packers. Now he returns on a Jets' team that is 3-2 and fighting for the AFC East title. He leads the NFL with 13 TD passes, but he also has six interceptions in his last four games. He should have no problem against a Raiders' defense that ranks 25th vs. the pass and is on the field all of the time because of a terrible offense.
Jones had his first multi-TD game of the season last week vs. Cincinnati as he scored three times. He gained 65 yards and two TDs on 17 carries and then added 13 yards on three receptions, including a two-yard TD pass from Brett Favre. He won't get as many touches this week against a Raiders' defense that ranks 18th vs. the run, so tone down your expectations for Week 7.
Cotchery led the Jets last week with eight catches for 85 yards and he leads the team on the season with 26 catches for 328 yards and three TDs. He should put up solid numbers again this week as the Jets will throw early and often against a rather porous Raiders' pass defense.
Coles had eight catches for the second straight week as he finished with 61 yards last week. He certainly seems to be in sync with Favre now as he has 22 catches over the last three games. Look for plenty of targets this week as well because the Raiders rank 25th vs. the pass.
Feely has scored 20 points the last two weeks, but it's possible that Mike Nugent could return from his thigh injury this week. Watch this week's progress to see who gets the kicking duties for Week 7.
Russell just doesn't look ready, and new head coach Tom Cable admitted that they may have loaded him up last week with too much of the playbook. Yikes. Russell completed only 13-of-35 passes for 159 yards during his return to Louisiana in the 34-3 rout by the Saints. He has no fantasy value and will struggle this week even against a Jets' defense that ranks 28th vs. the pass.
McFadden seems to be improving from his turf toe injury as he didn't have his boot cast on during Monday's practice. Still, he's been very ineffective since Week 2 and has just 92 yards on 29 carries over the last three games. The Jets also rank 3rd against the run, allowing just 2.9 yards per carry, so nothing will come easily this week. Don't start him if you have better options this week.
Fargas returned from his groin injury last week and rushed 10 times for 35 yards against the Saints. He will play a more prominent role this week in the offense, but remember that the Jets rank third against the run and allow just 69 yards rushing per game. Nothing will come easily this week.
Curry had his best game of the season last week: three catches for 32 yards. That should tell you all you need to know about Curry's season with Russell at QB. Pitiful, and it won't get any better this week.
The only possible fantasy option from this passing game is Miller, who has eight catches for 141 yards and a TD over the last two games. With the weakness at TE this year, Miller actually is a starting option for fantasy owners in Week 7.
