Garrard had a decent game against the Chiefs at home last week. He went 18-for-27 for 264 yards with 1 TD and 0 INT. In the three games before that, he threw for 0 TD and 4 INT. He could have a tough afternoon against Rex Ryan’s aggressive Jets’ defense coming off the bye. He hasn’t been great this year. Mild recommendation to avoid.
MJD has been as good as any back in the league over the last month. Against Kansas City, he carried 29 times for 97 yards and 1 TD, also catching 3 passes for 37 yards. He has 407 rushing yards and 6 TDs in his last three games and owns the NFL lead in TDs with 11. He’s a legitimate No. 1 fantasy RB and should be active in all formats.
Holt caught 4 balls for 37 yards against the Chiefs, one week after catching 2 passes for 17 yards against the Titans. He still hasn’t gotten into the end zone in 2009. He still on pace to get over 900 yards, but is no more than a lower-end No. 3 fantasy WR because of his lack of scoring, and not an option at all against the Jets’ tough corners.
A big, athletic target, Sims-Walker turned in a sick performance against Kansas City. He had 6 catches for 147 yards and a TD. He is the Jags’ No. 1 WR, one of a crop of young NFL wideouts enjoying breakout seasons (Rice, Jackson, Austin, Smith). He’s a No. 2 option against the Jets second-ranked pass defense.
Lewis has experienced little success the last three games, catching 1 ball for 3 yards against Kansas City, 1 ball for 20 yards against the Titans, one week after a 1-catch, 5-yard performance against the Rams. He’s had two decent games out of 8 and is an inadvisable option.
Sanchez had a nice game in the Jets’ loss to the Dolphins. He was 20-for-35 for 265 yards and 2 TD. The Jets have the best running game in the league and he doesn’t need to do a lot to succeed. Perhaps it’s because Jerricho Cotchery was back in the lineup, but he just seemed more comfortable against Miami. He’s a No.2 fantasy QB and a decent flex or bye-week guy.
Jones has had three straight 100-yard efforts after his 27-carry, 102-yard effort against the Fish before the bye. He’s now eighth in the league in rushing (704 yards) with 7 TD. He’s a No. 1 fantasy RB, especially against the 22nd-ranked Jags’ rush defense with an extra week of rest.
The absence of Jerricho ‘Knee to the’ Cotchery in the lineup after getting hurt in Week 5 really seemed to undermine the Jets. He’s developed a rapport with Sanchez and caught 3 balls for 70 yards upon his return to the lineup against the Dolphins. He is a No. 3 fantasy WR but not a terrible start against the Jags.
Edwards caught 4 passes for 74 yards and a TD against the Dolphins. Both of his TDs this year were against Miami. He’s a No. 3 fantasy WR with a decently high upside, maybe just a touch less valuable than the Cotch Man.
Keller? Sure she insulted me, but I’m not a murderer. Dustin had a season-high 8 catches for 76 yards and a TD against the Dolphins in Week 8. It was only his second productive game of the year, and until he does it for more than one week, the tight end shouldn’t be relied on much more than a situational sub or emergency injury replacement.
