Fantasy football start/sit, Week 11: New York Jets

A guide of who to start and who to sit in fantasy football Week 11 from the New York Jets.

Kevin Casey

For more, there are only three games left in the fantasy football regular season. Teams have started to hold Miami Marlins-style fire sales and the contenders are making their final pushes toward the playoffs.

Here is who to start and who to sit among the New York Jets as they face the Rams in St. Louis on Sunday afternoon.

Quarterback
Unless you league rewards a player for incompletions and interceptions, then there is no reason to own Mark Sanchez, let alone consider starting him in fantasy. You would probably be better off starting New York City's other quarterback, Eli Manning, though the Giants are on a bye.

Verdict - C'mon, really?

Running Backs
Shonn Greene was unable to get anything going last week in Seattle, but the Rams do not pose as formidable a unit versus the run, ranking just 18th in the league. With Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch, Chris Johnson and Ahmad Bradshaw on byes, you might need Greene, and he is a decent option here, as one would expect the Jets to run early and often, reducing the pressure on Sanchez.

Verdict - consider him a low-end RB2 option

Wide Receivers
This is probably the worst receiving corps in the league, so all of the Jets' offensive problems cannot be blamed on Sanchez. The team's leading receiver is Jeremy Kerley, but the Rams do rank 13th against the pass.

Verdict - if desperate, Kerley is a low-end WR3 or flex option

Kicker
Nick Folk has been accurate and reliable all season, but the same problem with him in fantasy pops up week after week. The Jets do not score enough points to make him a viable start.

Verdict - Sit him or drop him

Defense/Special Teams
Last week, the only points the Jets produced were on a fumble return for a touchdown by Muhammad Wilkerson. This unit has five touchdowns on the season, but has not intercepted a pass since Week 6 and only has 16 sacks. On the road, this is not a unit worth starting.

Verdict - Sit them

Good luck to all in Week 11.
