Heading into Week 10 fantasy football, New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell should finally bounce back against the Buffalo Bills.
For the past four weeks in fantasy football, New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell hasn’t been worth anything of major value. After his monster game back in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos, he hasn’t been the same since.
All that is about to change in Week 10 as he’s set to face the lackluster defense of the Buffalo Bills in front of the home crowd in MetLife Stadium. Not only are the Bills pretty bad when it comes to their overall run defense, but this is a must-win situation for the Jets.
If the Jets are to have any shot at leaving this game victorious, it will be thanks to Crowell and committing to the run. Offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates will likely be coaching for his job in this Week 10 AFC East division rivalry game as the Jets can’t afford to head into their bye week with yet another consecutive loss.

Expect to see Crowell get the bulk of rushes in this matchup with hopes that he can hopefully get back into a groove that set the fantasy football world on fire just a few weeks ago. It won’t be easy as the Jets offensive line is inconsistent but there is a lot on the line this week.
Fantasy owners would be wise to start Crowell this week but only as a FLEX option. He can’t be trusted as an RB2 and is nowhere near an RB1 option this week. At the FLEX position, however, he should be good for a healthy amount of fantasy points and a touchdown or two.
Start Crowell and don’t even think twice about it. He might not have a monster game as he did in Week 5 but has the potential to have a very good game against a team that is known to not know how to defend against the run.
