Heading into Week 2 fantasy football, wide receiver Charone Peake is a safe sit as he goes up against the Oakland Raiders.

As the New York Jets prepare for one of their toughest games of the season against the Oakland Raiders this week, a lot of their offensive players aren’t worth much of anything when it comes to fantasy football. Out of their offensive players worth starting, only two names are worth mentioning this week in wide receiver Jermaine Kearse and running back Bilal Powell. The rest? All best to leave on the waiver wire or bench this week.

When it comes to the fantasy football value of wide receiver Charone Peake, he’s nowhere near starting material. It’s not only due to this unfavorable matchup but the fact that he’s literally buried on the depth chart of the Jets.

Ahead of him are Kearse, Robby Anderson, Chad Hansen, and even ArDarius Stewart. It’s hard to imagine him turning into some kind of hidden fantasy gem this week but at the end of the day, reality says he’s worth sitting this week and probably not even worth stashing on your team.

The truth of the matter is when your starting quarterback is Josh McCown, it’s hard to believe he’s going to pass to anyone outside of his trusted receivers. It’s nothing against Peake but he has a long way to go to prove his worth not only on the Jets but in fantasy football.

The Raiders will more than likely make quick work of the Jets and remember, their pass defense is very good. The Jets had major problems converting third downs and trust me when I say that’s going to still be the case this week against the Raiders.

Don’t expect any miracles this week by the Jets, let alone Peake who more than likely will get very little, if any reps on Sunday. Sit him and don’t even think twice about it.
