Fantasy football start/sit, Week 15: New York Jets

A fantasy football guide to the New York Jets for Week 15.


It is the second week of the fantasy football playoffs for most teams, so here is your guide to who to start and who to sit on the New York Jets.

Keep moving. There is nothing to see here.

Running Backs
Both Bilal Powell and Shonn Greene carried the ball for more than 70 yards and a touchdown last week versus Jacksonville as the Jets took the ball out of the hands of embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez and focused on the running game.

Tennessee ranks ninth in the NFL against the rush, allowing an average of 127 yards per game. They have yielded 12 rushing touchdowns on the season.

Verdict - Powell and Greene are quality flex options

Last week, Sanchez completed passes to guys named Cumberland, Schilens, Gilyard and Reuland, and none of those players should be even on a fantasy roster at this point in the year.

As has been the case virtually the entire season, Nick Folk has had a solid year, but he has not been in position to score enough to warrant a start in fantasy, especially in the fantasy playoffs.

Defense/Special Teams
This unit is now ranked eighth in the league in total defense. Last week against the Jaguars, the DST had two interceptions and three sacks. On Sunday, they face second-year quarterback Jake Locker, and they are primed for another solid outing.

Verdict - Start them and consider them a low No. 1 option

Good luck during Week 15.
