Vikings (1-2) At Jets (3-1): Fantasy Football Focus

This contest should settle a number of Week 5 fantasy matchups.

For Minnesota, you can bet Moss will get his touches, though expecting major numbers while working with Favre for the first time, and against a quality Jets defense, is probably foolish. His presence makes Harvin a less attractive option, though Peterson and Shiancoe should remain fantasy lineup staples. Favre has become little more than a backup option at QB, and it’s probably best to wait and see what type of impact Moss has on the offense before you consider him for the starting lineup again. Not a great week to start the Minnesota defense or kicker Ryan Longwell either.

On the Jets side, Tomlinson and Keller have become must-starts until further notice, but Sanchez is probably just a notch below sure-fire fantasy starter status at this point. Holmes might actually be a better play than Moss here, since he actually worked (and worked well) with Sanchez in the preseason, and the Jets will probably have to put it in the air a little more than usual against a strong Minnesota run defense. Given the Vikes’ turnover problems, the Jets defense is probably a decent play here as well.
