Fantasy Football Start or Sit Week 6: D/ST New York Jets
By Matthew Ordazzo
When it comes to Week 6 of Fantasy Football, the D/ST of the New York Jets serves as a must sit against the offense of the New England Patriots.
Coming off a tightly contested 17-14 matchup, in which the defense of the New York Jets allowed a mere 14 points while forcing one fumble, two interceptions, and sacking the quarterback once, Gotham now sits at 3-2 heading into Week 6. Speaking of which, should fantasy football owners consider starting the D/ST of the Jets against the upcoming New England Patriots?
With back to back to back victories over Miami, Jacksonville, and Cleveland, the Jets play at home against their division rivals, confident as ever with first place possibly in their grasp. New England will without a doubt be one of the most difficult contests for New York, as a victory will without a doubt put the Jets on the map of legitimacy in the NFL.
Despite the huge matchup this coming Sunday, bench the Jets defense in fantasy football this week as the Patriots possess arguably the best offense in the NFL currently.
