Jets CB Darrelle Revis ruled out for Week 2

Jets head coach Rex Ryan said earlier this week that if cornerback Darrelle Revis @Revis24 is on the team flight to Pittsburgh, he'll play Sunday against the Steelers. Well, Revis is not going to be on that plane as Ryan ruled him out during his Friday press conference. Revis suffered a concussion in Week 1 and while he has been cleared for non-contact practice, he has yet to be fully cleared by medical personnel. Kyle Wilson will start in place of Revis.

Fantasy Analysis:

Good news for the Steelers offense. You're most likely starting Antonio Brown @AntonioBrown84 and Mike Wallace @Wallace17_daKid if you've got them, but I think this is really good for Brown since Revis probably would have been all over him. Antonio Cromartie will likely set up across from the bigger Wallace. Raise expectations for Brown, but again, both guys are at least WR2 plays.

I'm in the same boat. I am trying to decide between Wallace, Wayne, and Steve Johnson. I have two spots to fill. I figured Johnson was a safe bet and I think they are both great choices. Wallace and the steelers not having to face Revis is huge. But with Collie boubtful for Indy it could mean huge numbers for Wayne again... I'm going Wallace because of the risk/reward factor. More risk=more reward. Go big or go home! Good luck!
