We are back with another week of fantasy action as it relates to the NY Jets. I must sincerely apologize for my blunder of suggesting to start James Robinson with confidence — I don't think any of us foresaw the offense only getting two yards for the entire second half.

I started Robinson and Carter on the same team so I was really in bad shape but was luckily carried to victory by some other players. If you weren't as lucky, I promise to be better for you this week. Wow, accountability. See Zach Wilson? It's not so tough after all.

To pick up from next week, those who I had you sit with confidence (Zach Wilson, C.J. Uzomah) are even less relevant now. We will start with a brand new list of players who fall into these four main categories: Sit with Confidence, Sit with Reservations, Start with Reservations, and Start with Confidence.

NY Jets to sit with confidence

  • Braxton Berrios
  • Denzel Mims

The logic here is short and sweet — the Bears are 29th in the league in rushing yards allowed per game. I don't expect Mike White to be airing the ball all too much, so as a result, some of the deeper passing options have a low probability of producing.

Denzel Mims' greatest strength is his speed and size in the deep game, but White is the worst deep-ball thrower on the team. Even if they do connect (Mims has been known to catch a duck or two), he has yet to score a touchdown in the NFL so he wouldn't be too useful on your team with one catch for 40 yards.

Braxton Berrios is always a reverse threat and a kick return threat, but the odds of him converting either of those into touchdowns is considerably rare, so you can feel confident letting him hang out on the waiver wire (or your bench if you so choose).
