The 2011 NFL season is here, which means so is Fantasy Football season. Let's look at which New York Jets can help your fantasy football team rocket to the top of the league this season.

Mark Sanchez: Is Sanchez a good fantasy play? That remains to be seen. The Jets win with him, but they use the 'ground and pound' approach, and Sanchez has not yet put up the big touchdown or yardage numbers. In his third year he might be ready to take that leap, but my advice would be to wait and see. If you have another quarterback option, consider that for now.

Shonn Greene: Gained 766 yards a season ago, and should take even more of the rushing load this season. He will get you more yards, and more than the two touchdowns he scored in 2010.

LaDainian Tomlinson: He isn't going to match the 914 yards he gained a season ago. He will have his moments, but don't count on him.

Santonio Holmes: He will be the primary target for Sanchez, and could approach the 79 balls he caught for Pittsburgh in 2009.

Dustin Keller: I would not put Keller in the elite tight end category, but he got 55 catches and five touchdows a season ago.

Jets Defense: Never a bad play with Darrelle Revis at corner and with Rex Ryan constantly dialing up the pressure.
