What Patriots and Jets are you playing tonight as Geno Smith faces his elder, Tom Brady? – Fantasy Football Chick, September 12, 2013
Rookie Geno Smith faces off with veteran Tom Brady tonight as the Jets play the Patriots. The Patriots are out several key players tonight including Danny Amendola, Rob Gronkowski, and Shane Vereen. Can you count on Julian Edelman, who was awesome last week to pick up the slack? Zach Sudfeld is a bit hobbled and we have to trust Stevan Ridley to hold on to the ball. Hopefully Kenbrell Thompkins, who was a mess last week can replicate some of his preseason game.
Do the dents in the Patriots offense even the playing field even a bit for the young Smith and a mediocre at best offensive line? The Patriots were not as successful at stopping the Bills last week as I thought they would be. So do you trust any Jets in your lineup tonight? I’d maybe play Kellen Winslow, as Geno and had a chemistry going last week. I wouldn’t recommend any running backs or wide receivers however.
Who are you rolling with other than the obvious Tom Brady and capable Julian Edelman for your players tonight?
