According to ESPN’s Matthew Berry:
“Averaging just 13.3 touches per game the past three games, Crowell is in a legit, full-on time-share and this is a terrible matchup. The Jets are allowing just 3.2 yards per carry (second best in the NFL) and David Johnson is the only RB to score a rushing TD against the Jets since Week 1.”
Crowell has had some big weeks in 2016, but he’s also had some major duds. Given the matchup and the presence of Duke Johnson, it is going to be hard to trust him this week.
Of course the injuries and bye weeks make it impossible to ignore him completely, but he’s more of a low-end RB2/FLEX play as opposed to anything else (and even that could be a stretch). Look at your alternatives before sticking him in your lineup.
