Heading into Week 12 fantasy football, if you’re in dire need of a FLEX option and feeling risky, take a chance on New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell.

In case you didn’t know, the New York Jets are pretty bad at the moment with their offense being a main area of concern. They can’t run well, can’t pass well, and the overall offense lacks weapons and even suffer from abysmal mistakes by their offensive line. Can fantasy football owners even trust starting anyone wearing a Jets uniform?

In the grand scheme of things, due to the uncertainty of how the Jets offense has been as of late, there is a chance that like in Week 10, running back Isaiah Crowell ends up with a decent game. Despite the Jets losing to the Buffalo Bills, Crowell did just enough to earn at least starting in the FLEX role.

Crowell scored a touchdown and well, that’s the name of the game when it comes to what is worth having in such an unpredictable role on your fantasy football roster. The truth of the matter is, the Jets have very little hope in beating the Patriots as they might try and stick to the run to try and play a competitive game.

There is that chance that Crowell puts up a dud or maybe, just maybe, offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates draws up some plans to put him back in the spotlight. For all we know, Crowell could total a monster game but then again, could end up with another disappointing performance.

It’s worth risking since, at this point in the fantasy season, anything can happen. There isn’t much to work with in regards to the waiver wire as it might be worth taking a huge risk on Crowell and starting him in the FLEX position and hoping for the best.

Start Crowell there and hopefully, it turns out to be worthwhile. It’s likely the Jets will heavily commit to the run to try and beat the Patriots which potentially could mean Crowell ends up having a big day.
