The NY Jets have a critical game in primetime this Sunday as they square off against the AFC favorites, the Kansas City Chiefs. Adding to the fanfare of the game, Taylor Swift will be in attendance at MetLife Stadium. All eyes will be on this one.
For Daily Fantasy Football players, this season has been tough if you've rostered anyone on the Jets. Zach Wilson has struggled to move the ball consistently, impacting both his numbers and the Jets' skill players.
The Kansas City Chiefs come to town with the sixth-ranked overall scoring defense, indicating it might be tough sledding for Wilson and the Jets this week again.
Nonetheless, there are some options for players looking to roster Jets players in the primetime game. Below are three Daily Fantasy Football options for Sunday's game.
1. Michael Carter, RB, NY Jets
Michael Carter has not had a very productive season so far out of the Jets backfield but has seen increased playing time as the season has gone on. He has only logged three carries for 14 yards and four catches for 18 yards.
However, I think he could be valuable this week. So far this season, Carter has seen his playing time increase week after week, to the point that both he and Dalvin Cook had equal snaps in last week's game as they fight for the backup running back spot behind Breece Hall.
Although Hall will still get a majority of the work, Cook has looked bad thus far, actually finishing close to last in running back stats around the league. That looks good for Carter, who should see more playing time and opportunities on Sunday night.
Carter is best utilized out of the backfield as a pass-catching threat, and with the Chiefs predictably playing a prevent defense that forces check-downs, Carter could be in line for some run-after-catch chances.
If Carter, who is only priced at $4,400 on FanDuel, could be a bargain for lineups if he can bring in four or five catches plus the yards he can rack up. If the game gets ugly, a few second-half carries can bolster his performance as well.
