The New York Jets have surprisingly had a decent amount of players that can start in your fantasy lineups. Whether its full ppr, half ppr or standard, there are some studs in the Jets offense that can make a case for starting in your lineup every week.

Let’s start with rookie WR, Garrett Wilson. The Ohio State rookie sensation has been a reliable flex play through the first three weeks of the season in an offense that has been accumulating a ton of yards per game as of late. The Jets are 9th in the NFL in offensive yards per game with 370 YDS/G, they’re 5th in passing yards per game with 286 YDS/G and 21st in points per game with 17.3 PTS/G. Joe Flacco, the Jets QB for the first three weeks of the season is 5th in the NFL in passing yards with 901 yards. Zach will make his first start of 2022 this week in Pittsburgh, so Wilson’s stats should be even better when Zach returns under center. Garrett Wilson has 18 catches on 32 targets, putting him at ninth in the NFL in total targets. He also has 214 yards and averages 71.3 YDS/G which are both top-20 stats in the NFL. I just threw a bunch of numbers at you but let me break this down for you. As you know, the Jets aren’t a good football team, therefore they will be playing from behind almost every week. When teams are playing from behind, what do offenses tend to do? They throw the football. Rookie WR’s are playing really well so far this season and Garrett Wilson is becoming a favorite target for the Jets’ signal callers.

Next is former Minnesota Vikings TE, Tyler Conklin. If you’ve been watching my weekly FFN videos about the Jets, you would know that I predicted that Tyler Conklin would win the TE job in New York and finish as a top-10 TE in fantasy football. Conklin is 2nd out of all TEs in catches and 3rd in targets. He’s averaging 12.6 fantasy points per game in full ppr formats which is 3rd in the all of fantasy. The Jets have averaged 51.6 passing attempts per game to start the season. That is a ton of volume for pass catchers in the Jets offense. Conklin also attracts a lot of red zone looks as well. If he’s available in your leagues, which I doubt, but if he is go get him.

Both Michael Carter and Breece Hall have been heavily involved in both the run game and the passing game. I can feel a massive breakout game for Breece Hall coming soon. He’s a violent runner with the ability to make people miss, those are some traits that only some of the leagues best tailbacks have. He has the ability to be a league winner so if you don’t have him then you should be able to buy low on him right now. If you have Hall then don’t give up on him. He’s only getting you about 10 points per game and I know you spent a valuable pick on him and he hasn’t been dominant but stay patient, he’ll be a dawg soon. Michael Carter is good enough to be rostered and if Hall goes down, he’s easily a RB2 every week.

One last player is Elijah Moore. He’s been a disappointment so far this season but with Wilson returning under center and Moore being his favorite target, Moore should start to become the guy everyone thought he was going to be this season. He should be a must start once Wilson returns back to himself and if he progresses throughout the season then this offense will be scary.

There aren’t many seasons where there are Jets players that are easy must starts but so far this season there have been a few of them.
