Is Jamison Crowder playing Thursday night? Fantasy injury Boost for Broncos-Jets



 Jamison Crowder has been affect in the past two games due to hamstring injury suffered in practice after Jamison seven-catch, 115-yard opening-game performance, however, after getting in finite practices all weeks, he is officially "doubtful" for the Jets' Thursday night game against the Broncos.

   The shifty slot receiver will make for a tough start 'em, sit 'em call in standard fantasy leagues if he is active, but most in PPR leagues will roll the dice on Sam Darnold's favorite receiver.

  Getting timely updates on Jamison's health will be key to starting your Week 4 off right. 

  However, we will be here providing updates below about Jamison right up until the active/inactive report is released at around 6:50 p.m.

 Jamison Crowder was one of Week 1 is the most significant surprises after hauling in seven of 13 targets for 115 yards and a scored against the Bills.

 The vast majority of that production came on a 69-yard catch and run TD, but he is the type of receiver who is capable of those kinds of plays, so we cannot completely write it off as a fluke.

  A late week hamstring injury in practice ahead of Week 2 has kept Jamison Crowder on the sidelines the past two games, but after coach Adam said on Tuesday that Jamison is trending toward playing, it seems probably that he may available against a Broncos defense allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to WRs.

  Nevertheless, after watching the Jets offense struggle the past two weeks, fantasy owners might be leery about using Jamison Crowder.  

  It is fair to worry about him aggravating his hamstring injury on MetLife Field's notoriously bad turf, but his high-volume role in the Jets offense is secure. In Jamison's absence, fill in slot receiver Braxton Berrios caught 10 of 12 targets for 123 yards and two scores.

  We cannot say all of that production would have gone to Jamison, but you can bet he would have seen the lion's share of those targets.

  For as bad as Sam Darnold has looked the past few weeks, he is still capable of completing passes to his top target.  Jamison Crowder is worth using in all formats as long as he is active, but he is probably the only Jets player we can say that about. If Jamison is out, Berrios would have some appeal in deep PPR leagues, but he is a no-go if Jamison Crowder is active.
