Nothing beats the excitement when that late-round fantasy football selection breaks out and accumulates absurd numbers.

Whether it's due to an injury, or when a player takes advantage of the opportunity given, finding that one player that can elevate your team to fantasy football stardom is something every manager hopes for.

The NY Jets are a team that has opportunities in every nook and cranny on the offense, and even a potential fantasy football star on defense.

1. NY Jets' defensive tackle Quinnen Williams in IDP leagues

2021 Statistics: 113 Total Fantasy Points, 7.5 PPG

2022 Prediction: 140.0 Total Fantasy Points, 8.2 PPG

Quinnen Williams has been one of the most consistent defensive linemen in all of fantasy football since entering the league.

Last year alone, Williams was ranked as one of the top defensive tackles in fantasy football after he recorded 36 solo tackles, 17 assisted tackles, six sacks, and three pass deflections.

In fantasy football metrics, Williams dominated and recorded 113 total points, averaging roughly seven points-per-contest which ranked 30th among all defensive linemen.

This coming season, he is ranked as the sixth-best defensive lineman, with the potential to be even better according to Fantasy Pros. Since most leagues play with defensive teams rather than defensive players, Williams takes the honorable mention spot.

This season, with an even better offense to lean on, and a few key additions to the defense, Williams' opportunities to explode up the rankings are higher than ever.
