Shonn Greene explodes; can he be a fantasy RB2?

Shonn Greene went HAM on the Colts for his best day as a pro. We break down the fantasy implications.

Shonn Greene had a field day against the Colts with 32 carries that he turned into 161 yards and three TDs in the easy win over the Colts.

Greene was ice cold in a bad way coming into this season with a hideous 2.9 YPC on 76 carries. He only scored once in the five games prior to today.

Fantasy Impact: Umm , wow. Shonn Greene was arguably the worst starting back in the league before today and it was an easy argument to make. Today, however, he was making crisp cuts and aggressively getting through the hole. Bilal Powell also went down due to injury and Greene's competition may be out for a while.

The Jets will take on their division rivals as they head to Foxboro. Greene will be a low-end RB2 for that game.
