Joe McKnight is questionable with a hamstring. We break down the fantasy implications.
RB Joe McKnight (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday, but it is worth noting that he was upgraded to full participation in practice for Thursday and Friday. He should play against the Bills.
Analysis: The Jets traded away Leon Washington to get McKnight in the 2010 draft. While the USC product has shown some promise, he hasn't been able to put it all together. Things got worse for McKnight as he was beaten out by Bilal Powell for the third-down job. McKnight should get some snaps on offense and he will be back deep for kickoff returns. Bilal Powell is a better player to own at this point and McKnight can be left on the waiver wire in the deepest of leagues. Shonn Greene should see most of the work on Sunday, but Rex Ryan said their is no clear No. 2 back behind him.
