Houston Texans @ New York Jets

The Houston Texans look to be the class of the AFC and are 4-0 coming into this Monday night match-up. The New York Jets have struggled, coming in at 2-2 with a beat up defense and an underachieving offense.

Houston Texans (4-0): Matt Schaub has a simple formula to follow. Don't turn the ball over and hit play-action passes. He has executed this formula so far this season and will manage this Monday night's game the same way. 

Arian Foster is facing the 31st ranked rush defense in the league and will have an absolute field day on Monday night. Ben Tate could even be a good play if you're desperate.

Andre Johnson is a play every week that he is healthy. Temper expectations though as this week's game plan will probably rely heavily on the run game.

Owen Daniels has had a good start to the season and is coming off a solid performance last week. Daniels leads the team in targets and is a primary weapon in the play-action game.

Good starts: Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, Owen Daniels

Middle of the road: Matt Schaub, Ben Tate

Bad starts: Kevin Walter

 

New York Jets (1-3): Mark Sanchez is starting to hear the Tebow train coming as New York Jets fans and the New York media are starting to question a quarterback change sooner rather than later. Not a fantasy option this week.

Shonn Greene is not a fantasy option this week.

Santonio Holmes is out for the season after suffering a lisfranc (foot) injury last week.

Jeremy Kerley has explosiveness and could see more snaps with the absence of Holmes. Kerley can take it to the end-zone every time he touches the ball.

Stephen Hill could see most of what use to be Holmes's targets but with a tough match-up this is not the week to plug him in to your lineups.

Dustin Keller is questionable for the game and you should not be waiting on him to put in your lineup.

Good starts:

Middle of the road: Shonn Greene, Jeremy Kerley

Bad starts: Mark Sanchez, Stephen Hill, Dustin Keller
