The New York Jets look have looked like the worst team in the NFL through eight weeks and will take on the struggling New England Patriots in Week 9 at MetLife Stadium. Sam Darnold is doubtful to take the field because of a shoulder injury and that could affect the production of the Jets’ receivers significantly.
Fantasy Football analysis: Jets WRs Jamison Crowder, Breshad Perriman, Denzel Mims, Braxton Berrios
Crowder has been electric when he can play and has three 100-yard games in four starts, He busted the last time he took the field when Joe Flacco was under center against the Miami Dolphins. He’s been limited by a groin injury in practice this week but is expected to play after missing Weeks 7 and 8. The Patriots are banged up and could have to use a hobbled Stephon Gilmore, who missed Week 8 with a knee injury. Crowder has easily been the most consistent receiver the Jets have when he’s available. Perriman, Mims, and Berrios all seem like punt plays given how bad the Jets have been on offense.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Crowder because of how successful he’s been in the games he has played. Sit the rest.
