Heading into Week 2 fantasy football, it’s best to sit New York Jets wide receiver Terrelle Pryor against the Miami Dolphins.

As the New York Jets prepare for their Week 2 AFC East rivalry game against the Miami Dolphins, all eyes will be on if they can ride some serious momentum after their big Week 1 win. The Jets will have an even bigger test against the Dolphins as their pass defense is indeed better than that of the Lions. Should fantasy football owners consider starting wide receiver Terrelle Pryor?

In the grand scheme of things, no. Last week against the Lions, Pryor totaled just three receptions for 49 yards and failed to score a touchdown. Pryor is part of a pretty crowded situation at wide receiver for the Jets.

With playmakers like Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa, to the likely return of Jermaine Kearse this week, Pryor will once again have a limited role on offense. Yes, he’ll get a few passes his way but if anything, the Jets will continue to commit to the ground game as a priority on offense in order to beat the Dolphins in front of the home crowd in MetLife Stadium.

Fantasy football owners shouldn’t waste their time starting Pryor this week as he likely won’t do much of anything against the Dolphins. At this point in time, Pryor isn’t even worth starting as a WR2 or even a FLEX option since the truth of the matter is, he’s not going to take away reps from Anderson, Enunwa, or even Kearse unless it’s in a relief role.

If you own Pryor hoping that he heats up at some point during the fantasy season, he might be worth stashing around. For now, however, unless an injury happens, Pryor is best reserved on your bench or just left on the waiver wire this week.

Pryor is coming off an ankle injury and that could be what has limited his ability to have a bigger impact on the gridiron. It could very well be a few more weeks into the season before Pryor is relevant in fantasy football again.
