Sit of the Week: Michael Carter, RB, NY Jets
To be clear, I like the matchup against a porous Falcons' run defense. Michael Carter should receive a fair share of the workload and has a chance to enter the realm of serviceable running backs by finding his way into the end zone.
However, the return of veteran rusher Tevin Coleman is a serious concern for Carter owners. While his counting stats have been pedestrian, he made several key plays during the Jets' Week 4 victory against the Titans.
He is also familiar with both head coach Robert Saleh and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur from their successful time together with the 49ers.
A combination of trust, veteran savvy, and subpar production by the running back room as a whole, has left the door open for Coleman to emerge as the go-to running back as the season progresses.
Carter was already a touchdown-dependant player. The looming threat of both Coleman and Ty Johnson makes him a super risky play. Keep him on your bench if at all possible.
DFS Play of the Week: Jamison Crowder, WR, NY Jets
Unlike recent weeks, this game is without a clear building block play. While London games tend to be a bit fluky, I recommend plugging in either of the Jets' wide receivers mentioned above.
Both Davis and Crowder will be low-cost options that should provide good value while freeing up funds for big money players in other matchups.
In a vacuum, I give the slightest of edges to Crowder at a lower price point (only in PPR).
