Sione Pouha is questionable. We break down the fantasy implications.
Analysis: Pouha is by far the most important part of the Jets run D and it sounds like he isnt' going to suit up. The Jets have been slayed by the Bills and their running game in the past few years and it looks like it might be a similar story. Kendrick Ellis would take over in the middle of their 3-4 scheme and David Harris might be busy making tackles at the second level. Fred Jackson is a fantastic start and C.J. Spiller is an option in deeper PPR leagues. The Jets are not a must-start defense at all, but it's tough to carry a defense on your bench.
