Jets | Facing tough stretch of run stoppers

The next three opponents for the New York Jets rank among the top six in run defense, which puts pressure on the team to duplicate its 252-yard outburst in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts. The New England Patriots, their Week 7 opponent, allows 3.4 yards per carry, while the Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks, the next two opponents, allow 3.3 yards per tote. RB Bilal Powell (shoulder) is unlikely to play in Week 7, and RB Joe McKnight (ankle) is uncertain to play, so the team will rely heavily upon RB Shonn Greene.

Fantasy Tip: Greene's trade value is at its pinnacle after a career-high 161 yards and 32 carries last weekend. It might be a good idea to float him in trade offers based on his hot game, as it appears he is in for a long slog over the immediate future. With that, his fantasy value will cool.
