Shonn Greene receives fantasy boost with QB switch

Elsa

New York Jets running back Shonn Greene broke the century mark on Sunday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

On Sunday, the New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals collided in a defensive struggle where Gang Green came out ahead. Jets running back Shonn Greene was one of the more productive members of his team, carrying the ball 24 times for 104 yards.

More notably than Greene's yards or the Jets win was the benching of starting QB Mark Sanchez. The drama should continue to unfold this week as the Jets prepare for Week 14.

Fantasy Analysis: Greene has been the most reliable of fantasy options on the New York Jets. He gets the bulk of the carries in the ground game, while NY has been able to generate little in the passing attack.

If Greg McElroy is to start over Mark Sanchez in Week 14, Greene might be an even more reliable fantasy option. He will get a lot of looks, as a runner and check-down option. Consider Greene a decent flex option going forward.
