Shonn Greene Fantasy Update: New York Jets RB Emerges From Abyss

The New York Jets have had an up and down 2011 season and part of that has been due to the immense struggles of running back Shonn Greene. the Jets number one back has not had an awful year, but he simply has not been able to get much positive momentum going. Entering Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins, Greene had only two rushing touchdowns on the season and was averaging four yards per carry. Four yards each carry equates out to league average.

Sunday, he finally had a monster game for fantasy owners. Although Greene's 88-yard rushing total wasn't spectacular, he added three rushing touchdowns to the mix. After weeks and weeks of waiting, fantasy owners finally benefited. There has been some concern of Joe McKnight and Ladanian Tomlinson grabbing carries from Greene, but he might have re-established his place in the pecking order with that game.

The Jets have some intriguing matchups over the remaining few weeks. They face a Chiefs rush defense that is a bit up and down, and then they follow that up against a poor Eagles rushing defense. As fantasy owners head into their playoffs, Shonn Greene is not a fantastic option, but he has some decent matchups.
