Joe McKnight had a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown during the third quarter of the Jets' loss to the Texans on Monday Night Football. We break down the fantasy implications.

Joe McKnight returned a third-quarter kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown during the New York Jets' loss to the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football in Week 6. He was quiet outside of special teams, however, with 5 yards on four carries and no receptions.

Fantasy Impact: McKnight saved what had been a bad night for anyone who started the Jets as a Team D/ST option in standard fantasy leagues. The Texans racked up 378 total yards and scored 23 points. The Jets forced just one turnover -- an interception -- and notched zero sacks. You should be able to find better fantasy options simply by playing matchups off waivers every week. As for McKnight, he has value in leagues factoring in return yardage, but otherwise should be left on waivers in other fantasy formats.
