Miami Dolphins @ New York JetsMiami:  The Dolphins come off their bye week having won a close game with the St. Louis Rams Week 6.  Now they take on a division rival that they lost in overtime to a few weeks ago in Miami.  Ryan Tannehill has gotten much better since that game five weeks ago, and should be better equipped to challenge the Jets secondary.  Unfortunately, the Jets secondary has also gotten better, and Antonio Cromartie is proving to be every bit of a #1 shutdown CB as Darrelle Revis has been.  In the weeks since Revis’ injury, Cromatie has held #1 WRs to the following stat lines:  2-15, 1-15, 5-87, and 1-6.  So if Cromartie lines up across from your WR, you’re best to not start them.  So this week that would mean Brian Hartline probably isn’t a very good play.Just because Hartline and probably Tannehill aren’t the strongest plays doesn’t mean there aren’t any good fantasy plays for the Dolphins.  Reggie Bush has been very good this year, but in the last month has tailed off a bit.  Since tweaking his knee in the Jets game a month ago, Bush hasn’t had more than 67 yards rushing or 72 total yards and has only scored once.  Considering how many good backs are missing due to bye weeks (Foster and Rice), Bush is going to be one of the stronger plays of the week.  Just don’t expect more than around 80 total yards and a chance at a touchdown.  Another decent play in PPR leagues is Devone Bess, as the Jets have been fairly friendly to secondary receivers.Good Start:  RB Reggie BushMiddle of the Road: WR Davone BessBad Start:  QB Ryan Tannehill, WR Brian Hartline, TE Anthony Fasano New York:  The Jets come off of a hard fought loss on against division rival and Rex Ryan thorn New England, and in overtime no less.  Now, the Jets will have to recover from that emotional loss to face another division rival in the Miami Dolphins.  The Dolphins sport one of the better defenses in the league this year, ranking 7th in points allowed per game at 19.5.  That’s bad news for the Jets, who have had trouble scoring and rank just 18th in points scored at 22.7. Mark Sanchez still leads the way as he has not yet ceded anything to Tim Tebow.  In fact, it’s amazing that Sanchez hasn’t done worse considering the state of his receivers.  Currently, only Jeremy Kerley is worth anything in the passing game, and he’s actually developing into an nice weekly PPR flex play.  None of the other receivers are worth considering at this point.The biggest area of strength for the Dolphins defense is against the rush, where they rank 3rd in yards allowed per game, and have only allowed 3 rushing TDs all season long.  This is not a game where Shonn Greene will continue his recent bout of success, so don’t expect anything more than his normal plodding 50 or 60 yards.Good Start:  WR Jeremy KerleyMiddle of the Road:  QB Mark SanchezBad Start:  RB Shonn Greene, WR Stephen Hill, WR Chaz Chilens, TE Dustin Keller
