Pick: Jets 20, Vikings 13
New York Jets
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBBrett Favre
175 pass yards, 2 INT
The bye week may have allowed Favre and the Vikings to work out some of their offensive issues and add a huge weapon with Randy Moss, but the already stout Jets defense gets Darrelle Revis back this week.
RBAdrian Peterson
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 60 rush yards, 1 rush TD
The Jets are giving up just 75 rushing yards per game. so it will be a challenge for Peterson to put up a big point total.
RBAlbert Young
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 10 rush yards
Young will backup Adrian Peterson, but he does not receive many carries and has a bad matchup. Use another option.
WRRandy Moss
5 rec, 45 yards
Increasingly phased out by the Pats, Moss becomes Favre's top target, but a second engagement with Darrelle Revis promises to limit what Moss can do in his Vikings homecoming.
WRBernard Berrian
2 rec, 20 yards
Berrian has caught just five passes this season, so use a different option until Brett Favre looks his way a bit more.
WRPercy Harvin
3 rec, 40 yards
Harvin had a week off to heal, but agianst a Jets defense allowing only 15.3 ppg, it's best to use another option if available.
WRGreg Camarillo
2 rec, 25 yards
Expect Camarillo continues to be a popular sleeper option, but it will be difficult to start him until he produces on the field.
TEVisanthe Shiancoe
2 rec, 20 yards
Expect Brett Favre to continue utilizing Shiancoe often in the passing game. The fact he has been Favre's primary target makes him worth a start this week.
KRyan Longwell
1 PAT, 2 FGs
Longwell's production has been limited by the Vikings' inability to consistently move the ball, so hopefully the bye week allowed the offense to fix a few issues. Longwell is a decent option.
Defense
2 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble
The Vikings defense has given up 32 points in three games this season. The Jets offense is hot, but the Vikings are playing at home this week and coming off a bye. Feel free to use them this week.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBMark Sanchez
160 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 5 rush yards, 1 INT
Sanchez's early performance has made him a fringe starter in standard leagues, but it may be best to use a more reliable option this week considering the Vikings' pass defense is eighth in the league against the pass.
RBShonn Greene
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 40 rush yards
Greene proved last week that he is still capable of putting up decent numbers, but he will continue to split the carries with LaDainian Tomlinson for the time being. Greene is a risky option this week against a stout Vikings run defense.
RBLaDainian Tomlinson
3 rec, 20 rec yards, 60 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Tomlinson has proven he is not done just yet, but he'll face a tough test this week against a Vikings team allowing fewer than 90 rushing yards per game.
WRBraylon Edwards
3 rec, 40 yards
Edwards has found the end zone three straight weeks but he's facing a tough defense in Minnesota.
WRSantonio Holmes
3 rec, 40 yards
Holmes will be a welcome addition to the Jets offense this week following the completion of his percentage. It's unclear what his role will be right away, but consider using him this week since he is now active.
WRJerricho Cotchery
3 rec, 35 yards
Cotchery has put up only minimal production this season and has a tough matchup this week, so use another option.
TEDustin Keller
3 rec, 30 yards, 1 TD
Keller continued his strong play last week with a two-touchdown game in a blowout of the Bills. Expect him to see plenty of action this week in what figures to be a much closer game.
KNick Folk
2 PATs, 2 FGs
Folk has put up decent numbers the last few weeks and this could be a battle of field goals. He is there if you need him.
Defense
3 sacks, 2 INT, 1 Fumble
The Jets defense will get both Darrelle Revis and Calvin Pace back this week, and they face a team that has struggled on offense early this year. Randy Moss is a huge variable, but it may take him at least a week or two to get fully involved in the offense.
