The New York Jets are coming off a bye week and they had some time to allow the big win to soak in. In Week 9, they had a relatively shocking win over the New Orleans Saints and it had a lot to do with their offense and ground game.
This Jets offense has a chance to do it again. They took on the Bills in Week 4 at home and ran all over them with 182 yards on the ground, so heading to Buffalo could be a beneficial outcome. Geno Smith had one of his best games of the year with an 11.4 yards per attempt. While Bilal Powell did almost all of the damage at 149 rushing yards, things have changed a little in the past two months.
Ivory has two 100-yard games in his last three outings and should be the featured back after his 139-yard gem in the win. Meanwhile, Powell has just 54 rushing yards in those three aforementioned games. The changing of the guard seems to have already happened.
Fantasy impact: Considering the matchup and the hot hand of Ivory, he looks like a great guy to play. The Bills are on a three-game losing streak and they’re likely going to struggle on O, so the Jets should be able to control the clock.
