As the NY Jets get ready for their Week 2 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, it is time to prepare some daily fantasy football lineups.
Despite Zach Wilson now getting the start as the Jets quarterback, there are still many high-upside options for players looking to roster a Jets player.
Below are three viable options with some legit upside for daily fantasy players on the Jets. Although they don't make the list below, don't shy away from this Jets defense either.
1. Breece Hall, RB, NY Jets
Available on DraftKings for just $5,900, Breece Hall marks an almost automatic pickup for all Jets fans and all daily fantasy players. Anyone who watched the game Monday night saw just how explosive Hall is, even on limited touches.
Against a really good Buffalo defense, Hall ran 10 times for 127 yards and also added a 20-yard reception as well, good for 18.7 fantasy points.
The fact that Hall is still priced as the 16th overall running back has a lot to do with his injury designation as questionable, although there are absolutely no indications of any chances Hall will not play.
With Zach Wilson now under center, I expect the Jets to implement a ground-and-pound style offensively, favorable for Hall, who should match or exceed his 10 Week 1 carries. I wouldn't be surprised to see Hall get 15 touches during the game.
Additionally, the Cowboys happen to be one of the worst defenses against the run in the entire NFL. Despite beating the Giants 40-0 last week, they still surrendered 108 rushing yards on just 28 carries. I would expect the Jets to easily surpass that number this week.
The Cowboys struggled against the run last year as well, finishing 22nd in total rush yards, allowing over 124 yards per game. I expect the Jets to easily surpass 100 yards rushing and get close to their 175 yards number from last week, led by Hall.
If Hall can find his way into the endzone this week, something he couldn't do last week, it should pay off big for fantasy owners. I predict Hall finishes with 12 carries for 65 yards and a touchdown and adds two catches for 17 yards — good for 16.2 fantasy points.
