Answers for Miami & Jets

Miami at N.Y. Jets 4:15 p.m.

The Jets did well to restore the faith in RB Ronnie Brown.  A 1st or 2nd round pick in all fantasy drafts, he had done nothing to merit his inclusion as a top RB2 much less and RB1.  His 22/127/1 likely buys him another start before the doubts creep back.

Interestingly, QB Joey Harrington didn't let rookie WR Derek Hagan's lack of 2006 experience (two receptions) prevent him from hitting him with six receptions and another pass that Hagan had his hands on falling backwards in the endzone.  I ranked him as the 53rd WR, and it was amongst my worst through the first six weeks.  Now....

Harrington also hit TE Randy McMichael for eight receptions, WR Chris Chambers for five, and WR/KR/PR Wes Welker for six.  That type of distribution makes all the Dolphins receivers playable in deeper leagues.

Jets RB Kevan Barlow has his best yardage game of the season with 13 rushes for 45 yards.  Unfortunately, rookie RB Leon Washington had eleven for 58 yards.  This RBBC is permanent, and, outside of next week, there should be no fantasy teams starting Jets RBs.

QB Chad Pennington bounced back from the disaster at Jacsonville to produce his typically efficient line - 17/29/175/2 with no INTs.  WR Laverneus Coles had proven his is Chad's man with 5 receptions for 106 yards and both TDs.

Early season WR sleeper Jerricho Cotchery caught just one ball for six yards.  He may be in the Marques Colsten class of early season surrpises who never see that statistical glory once they've become 100% owned.
