2015 Week 3: New York Jets Fantasy Preview vs. Philadelphia Eagles

The Jets are off to a 2-0 start this season, and while their league-leading 10 takeovers have a lot to do with it, their offense has been extremely competent as well. For fantasy purposes, Ryan Fitzpatrick has been a mid-range QB2, Chris Ivory has been a low-end RB1 and both Brandon Marshall (WR1) and Eric Decker (WR2) are outplaying their ADPs.

This week, the reeling Eagles come to MetLife Stadium looking to get their running game going and pull their offense out of reverse. Unfortunately for Philadelphia, the Jets’ defense isn’t exact the cure for what ails a struggling offense. Add in the fact that the Eagles are a bit banged up on both sides off the ball, and there should be more fantasy goodness than usual on the Jets’ side.

Using the follow grading system, let’s take a look at how New York stacks up in fantasy football this week against Philadelphia. 

- A: Must start
- B: Recommended start
- C: Start if necessary
- D: Don’t start
- F: Why do you own this player?

Quarterback - Ryan Fitzpatrick: C

Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown for just 423 yards this season, which ranks him just inside the NFL’s top 25. Even with two multi-touchdown performances, he still hasn’t put up a top-15 scoring week. Last week’s matchup with the Colts was as juicy as it got, with three of their top four cornerbacks out and Vontae Davis leaving with a concussion. Still, Fitzpatrick ended up as QB19 for the week. He’s just not being asked to do much.
