Two Buy Low WRs – Will Sparling

by Will Sparling

J-E-T-S! Jets! Jets! Jets! I have a feeling no one has chanted that in a while. The Jets season has been a rough one, losing Sam Darnold crushed their chances from having stability. When Darnold came back the first game gave them some hope, but then came the next two games. But Darnold is back, that will help once he gets on the same pages with his receivers, and maybe with Halloween ending he will stop seeing ghost. The Jets upcoming schedule is looking good with Miami twice, Washington, the Giants, and Oakland. The Jets are a team that can be scary to invest in but has a great opportunity to pay off for fantasy managers to take advantage for a by low market.

Jamison Crowder has averaged 9 receptions, 62 YPG with Darnold under center, and that is including the debacle of a game against New England. Crowder has always been a player that everyone has been waiting to breakout, whether it was his time in Washington or now with the Jets. Volume is king in any format you play in, and Crowder is one of Darnold favorite targets. Crowder might not see the red zone targets we would love to see, but he makes up for it with in targets. Crowder has 50 targets and a 70% catch rate. Crowder has the chance to be the “Julian Edelman” for the Jets, meaning lots of targets and consistent production. This is a great time to buy Crowder and for cheap.

Robby Anderson the big play threat, with plenty of preseason hype, has underwhelmed so far this season. Anderson only has 21 receptions for 309 yards and 1 touchdown this season. Most of his production has come from just two games. The reason he is a buy low or even a buy at all is the upcoming schedule. Darnold likes to target Anderson deep and often, with 29 targets in just four games with Darnold. Anderson has great talent and great speed, something the Jets haven’t taken fully advantage of this season. Anderson has the chance to finish with strong positive regression and has great upside if Darnold can keep it together.
