Heading into Week 9 fantasy football, it’s best to sit New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell against the Miami Dolphins.

It was only a few weeks ago that New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell was the talk of the fantasy football world. Unfortunately, after a breakout performance in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos, Crowell has fizzled out.

Due to a nagging foot/ankle injury, Crowell hasn’t done much of anything since then. It also doesn’t help that the Jets offensive line has been an absolute train wreck unable to consistently open up the right rushing gaps and lanes for Crowell to thrive.

Since Crowell is likely still dealing with that injury and combined with the lack of the Jets offensive line to get the job done, makes it an easy decision for fantasy football owners in Week 9. If you need an RB2 or even a FLEX option this week, it’s best to look elsewhere.

Sit Crowell and don’t even think twice about it. With Bilal Powell out for the season, it’s apparent that Crowell isn’t a consistent running back as many had envisioned this fantasy season. The Jets, 3-5 at the midseason mark, are on their way to another losing season.

The weakest part of their roster is easily on offense as things will only continue to get out of control. Rookie quarterback Sam Darnold can only do so much and without a solid rushing game to alleviate some of the pressure off of his shoulders, Sunday’s road game against the Miami Dolphins could be another disaster of a game like it was last week against the Chicago Bears.

Expect another loss by the Jets and another lackluster game by Crowell. The Jets continue to have major issues when it comes to starting any of their players in fantasy football as most of their playmakers are hurt or dealing with lingering injuries as the season progresses.
