Start: Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Miami Dolphins

Tua Tagovailoa isn't really a classic fantasy quarterback. His scoring output is just too low for that. In his six games this season, he has only scored more than 16 fantasy points twice. And yet, he should be on your radar as a streaming quarterback this week.

That's because the Jets have allowed a total of eight passing touchdowns and 26.1 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks over the last three weeks. With stats like that, Tagovailoa might even equal his season-best.

That's why even Tua Tagovailoa is a must-start this week.

Sit: Michael Carter, RB, NY Jets

No team has allowed fewer fantasy points to running backs over the last three weeks than the Miami Dolphins. 11.8 fantasy points per game for running backs is a strong figure and should be concerning to anyone with Michael Carter on their roster.

Even though Carter has only stayed under 10 fantasy points once in his last six games, considering the Dolphins have yet to allow a touchdown to a running back this season, this could be a very frustrating game for the Jets rookie.

So you better leave Carter on the bench this week.

Sit: Joe Flacco, QB, NY Jets

Joe Flacco is starting for the Jets this week. But should he also start on your fantasy football team? No. "New" quarterbacks have almost always looked pretty good in their first games this season, but I'm too unsure about Flacco, especially in a matchup against the Dolphins.

The Dolphins defense has allowed just three passing touchdowns in their last three and has recorded four interceptions in that time. Last season, Joe Flacco averaged 11 fantasy points per game.

I expect Flacco to top that 11 points in the game against the Dolphins, but he is still better off on your fantasy football team's bench.
