Heading into Week 4 fantasy football, New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell is a must-start against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Last week against the Cleveland Browns, New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell put on a show in more ways than one. While Crowell only totaled 34 rushing yards, he was a fantasy football dream if you started him as he scored not one but two touchdowns.

Crowell also added 17 receiving yards on two receptions to prove that slowly but surely, offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates will incorporate him in such a role on offense. Ideally, it’s expected that Bates has learned from the error of his ways last week in a shocking and embarrassing loss to the Browns.

Things bode well for Crowell’s fantasy impact as he prepares for another road game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4 action. Fantasy football owners would be wise to start Crowell since it’s expected the Jets will go back to what works and commit to their ground game in order to beat the Jaguars.

Crowell at this point in time is an RB2 mostly due to the unpredictability of the Jets offense. They don’t have a clear identity yet this early in the season and until they develop into a run-centric offense, there is always that chance that their running backs might not do much of anything.

With two straight losses and all eyes on if the Jets can get back on track, expect to see Bates go back to what worked and let his running backs set the tone in this Week 4 matchup. Since Crowell is the Jets starting running back, he’s worth starting as an RB2 or even in the FLEX position this week.

Overall, the Jets rushing attack led by Crowell and Bilal Powell should hopefully put them in a position to leave this game victorious. It is what worked in their dominant Week 1 victory over the Detroit Lions and should help them potentially end their current two-game losing streak.
