FANTASY FOOTBALL THURSDAY WRAPUP: JETS/BILLS

Ryan Fitzpatrick:  24/34 for 374 yards and 1 TD.  Fitz up to 3 passing scores on the season and totally carved up the Buffalo defense all night with little trouble.  The emergence of Quincy Enunwa now give Fitz THREE big wideout options and the numbers should flow.  I always have liked the veteran more than most others and did say to start him last night.  Continue to go with him.

Tyrod Taylor:  18/30 for 297 yards with 3 TD and 1 INT.  Taylor can throw a nice deep ball and no one can argue with three passing scores so we will leave it at that.  Of course you know you can't have Taylor as your starter in single passer leagues.

Matt Forte:  30 carries for 100 yards and 3 TD to go with 2 catches for 9 yards.  My goodness was I wrong about this guy this season.  Honestly it all came down to how the Jets were going to deploy Forte as there was talk of a split with Bilal Powell but that obviously has not happened.  Despite being 30, Forte still looks spry and 3 TD's from a running back is like 3 home runs for a hitter in fantasy football.  Doesn't get much better.  The fact the Jets are using Forte like a workhorse means he is a clear RB 1 in all leagues.  Only worry is that the age will show up late in the season under all these carries.

LeSean McCoy:  15 carries for 59 yards to go with 4 catches for 31 yards.   Nothing happening here for the second week in a row and the alarms are going off.  The blocking was actually good from a pass protection perspective but the run game was off and has been through both games.  Not looking so hot for McCoy owners right now. 

Brandon Marshall:  6 catches for 101 yards.  Wow what a night of emotions here.  Anyone who owns Marshall as I do in the Fantasy Sports Boss Vs. Fans League held their breath until they almost passed out when they saw him go down awkwardly in the second quarter and grab his knee.  Visions of a torn ACL tormented us but the always durable Marshall came jogging back out of the locker room minutes later.  All's well that end's well as he had a big game but still has not scored a TD.  That is more an indication of the development of other receiving options then anything else.

Eric Decker:  6 catches for 126 yards and 1 TD.  Because of the giant presence of Marshall, Eric Decker gets a bit lost in the shadows and overall he has been severely underrated for awhile.  The guy catches a ton of touchdowns every season in a Jordy Nelson way and he has 2 already and is outproducing Marshall.  As good a WR 2 as you can get.

Quincy Enunwa:  6 catches for 92 yards.  This after hauling in 7 balls a week ago.  The Jets have something here and the fantasy football community should start taking a look.  Yes the Jets can have three fantasy football receivers because they get nothing out of their tight ends.  We are past the point now where Enunwa should be picked up.

Sammy Watkins: 2 catches for 20 yards.  Can't tell you how many back-and-forths with readers I had over my suggestion to bench Sammy Watkins.  It was simple to me in that I kept saying one false step and Watkins would be done early plus the bad QB play and simply being less than 100 percent.  Well Watkins didn't finish the game, was unproductive, and likely is out Week 3 and maybe longer.  I win.

Marquise Goodwin:  5 catches for 112 yards and 1 TD.  The speedster will move into a prominent role if Watkins does in fact miss next week as I expect him to do.  Again I don't like investing in Buffalo wideouts but in deeper formats you can try this.
