The New York Jets host the New England Patriots in a Week 12 rivalry matchup on Thanksgiving. With three games on the schedule, odds are high that you have multiple players going in these early matchups. Fantasy football playoffs are approaching, which means every week is a vital matchup. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup for Week 11, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.
New England Patriots
The big news for the Patriots is of course that Rob Gronkowski is out with a forearm injury, likely to keep him out until at least fantasy playoffs. Aaron Hernandez is questionable this week but should be back on the field. All the Patriots offensive weapons become a bit more intriguing with the absence of Gronk. At the same time, this rivalry game can get a little crazy in New Jersey. Tread carefully.
New York Jets
The Jets are mostly healthy, but that does not make them all that much more valuable in fantasy. Now that bye weeks are finished, Shonn Greene's value is low end RB2 and flex option. This matchup provides some intrigue for him, but he is still a low-rent running back. Beyond that, Jeremy Kerley has a little bit of flex value, and WR2 value in the deepest of leagues. Other than that, stay away from the Jets.
