Fantasy football start/sit, Week 10: New York Jets

Nick Laham

Who to start and who to sit on the New York Jets.

With only four weeks remaining in most fantasy regular seasons and bye weeks winding down in the National Football League, here is your weekly primer for fantasy starts and sits on the New York Jets as they face the Seahawks on Sunday afternoon in Seattle.

Move along. There is nothing to see here and certainly nobody to start in fantasy.

Running Backs
Shonn Greene has averaged 19.3 fantasy points over his last three games, while also scoring four touchdowns. The Seahawks have the No. 11 ranked rushing defense in the league, but last week got torched by Adrian Peterson (182 yards) and the Vikings (243 total).

With the struggles of Mark Sanchez, expect the Seahawks to expend most of their defensive energy on stopping the Jets groud game.

Start him if you have no other options

The Seahawks come into the game with the No. 7 ranked passing defense, while Sanchez and the Jets have the No. 25 ranked passing offense. That does not bode well for any Jets pass catchers, but if you have to start someone because you are without Larry Fitzgerald, Santana Moss, Josh Cribbs, Randall Cobb or Jordy Nelson — Arizona, Washington, Cleveland and Green Bay are on bye — then Jeremy Kerley, the Jets leading receiver, would be the one to start.

Consider Kerley, but nobody else

Nick Folk is 11-for-12 on field goals and has not missed an extra point, so in terms of accuracy, he is having a fine season. The problem, though, is that he is not put in scoring position enough, so he remains on the bench.

Drop him if you own him

Defense/Special Teams
This unit has had some moments this season, but the Jets have allowed more than 29 points each of the last two weeks. Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson has improved and has not turned it over as much as one would expect from a rookie signalcaller. Marshawn Lynch is a dynamic running back and the Jets are ranked 29th in stopping the run, so he is sure to put the Seahawks into scoring position on more than one occasion.

Sit them
