Week 3 is upcoming, fantasy football players, and it is time to start thinking about your week 3 lineups. Most of us have to put in our lineups early now, thanks to the consistent Thursday night games. So, here are the Jets players to watch for in their week 3 matchup against the Miami Dolphins:
Mark Sanchez has never been the greatest fantasy option, granted. He has been inconsistent so far in 2012, but you could do worse than Sanchez this week, here’s why. Over the first two weeks of 2012, Miami has been terrible against the pass, allowing 313.5 yards per game through the air. This is a big number, obviously, and shows that quarterbacks have played quite well so far against the Dolphins.
Sanchez, through his career, has not been bad against the Dolphins in Miami. In 2009, Miami threw for 172 yards and 1 TD. In 2010, Mark had a terrific game in Miami, with 256 yards and 3 TDs, a 120 QB rating. Even during the debacle in Miami in week 17 last year, Sanchez didn’t have a terrible fantasy game. Even with the stupid interceptions, he did throw for 207 yards and 2 TDs, and actually completed 65.6% of his passes that day.
Nobody is off for a bye, so if you have a better option, use it. But if you don’t, you could do worse than Sanchez.
