Isaiah Crowell, RB, New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins
DraftKings Price: $4,600
The Jets dismantling of the Detroit Lions in Week 1 was one of the biggest storylines in the league. It didn’t help matters that it happened on the primetime Monday Night Football slate. While rookie Sam Darnold was the hero of the game, Isaiah Crowell was quietly the spectacular surprise in his debut with the team.
Crowell turned only 10 rushing attempts into 102 yards and 2 TD’s in a committee approach, outplaying incumbent RB Bilal Powell. The highlight was a 62-yard TD run.
After never quite living up to expectations in Cleveland, Crowell seems to have found his happy place in this revamped Jets offense. While he will still be stuck in an even timeshare with Powell, Crowell already established the potential upside he has in his new home. This week, Crowell is a great value pick at a $500 discount compared to Powell. The Jets will take on a Dolphins team that got beat up by Dion Lewis in Week 1.
