Heading into Week 2 fantasy football, New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell is worth starting against the Miami Dolphins.

Last week against the Detroit Lions, New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell put on an absolute clinic of a performance. In Week 1 action, Crowell totaled 102 rushing yards, 10 attempts, and two touchdowns. Should fantasy football owners trust him to continue the momentum in Week 2?

In the grand scheme of things, Crowell is a must-start as he will face the Miami Dolphins. With the Jets making sure not to overwork rookie quarterback Sam Darnold, they will rely on their potent ground game to set the tone of this division rivalry game.

Expect to see more of this same this time around with Crowell leading the charge in the Jets running back corps. Crowell will share reps with running backs Bilal Powell and Trenton Cannon but will likely have the most carries in Week 2 action.

Fantasy football owners would be wise to start Crowell this week as he will once again have a big game. At this point in time, he should be trusted as either an RB2 or even a FLEX option depending on how your lineup is shaping up.

Crowell, if healthy, could very well end up as a top-10 fantasy running back as the season progresses. If you own him, make sure to hold onto him as he will only continue to have an increased role throughout the season as the Jets do their best to field an offense capable of scoring a plethora of points week in, week out.

The Dolphins run defense is inconsistent which could mean another big day for Crowell and his fellow running backs. Crowell is entering a favorable matchup and has the potential to drop another big game as the Jets try to go 2-0 early on in the season thanks to their commitment to the run.
