Eric Decker - WRPosted 5/23/17 8:23am ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is participating in passing drills full speed Tuesday, May 23.
Huddle Up: Decker could be a forgotten man on draft day, but the 30-year-old could still have some magic left in the tank. Monitor his progress through camp and look for him as a WR4 or a WR5.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 5/23/17 11:31am ET
New York Jets RBs Matt Forte and Bilal Powell will serve as a two-man backfield committee this season, according to offensive coordinator John Morton. Morton added that the offensive gameplan will vary from week to week, but a timeshare is expected.
Huddle Up: This isn't positive news for Powell, who was expected by many to take over New York's backfield. He still could, but Forte won't be pushed aside easily. Powell remains the more valuable back from a fantasy perspective and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 with added profit in PPR leagues. Forte is more of a flex consideration, although he could see more goal-line carries.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 5/23/17 12:56pm ET
New York Jets QBs Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg will be given equal first-team repetitions during organized team activities, according to offensive coordinator John Morton.
Huddle Up: McCown is by far the most experienced quarterback in this group. He has the most fantasy upside, too. The veteran isn't close to QB1 territory, but he may be a valuable bye-week replacement if the matchup is right.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 5/10/17 8:23pm ET
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa believes he's going to have 'an opportunity to do a lot more than he was able to do last year', and SNY's Ralph Vacchiano suggests the 24-year-old may be the team's top receiving option if WR Eric Decker can't make it all the way back from hip and shoulder surgery.
Huddle Up: Decker fully expects to be back by training camp, so this figures to be a non-story so long as the Jets don't designate make him a post-June cut, which seems unlikely at this point. Enunwa led the team with 857 receiving yards in 2016, and a repeat of that production at the very least seems possible whether Decker is playing or not. The third-year Nebraska product should be considered a WR5 in most fantasy leagues.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 5/8/17 7:39pm ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson was arrested Sunday, May 7, at a music festival in Miami, Florida after allegedly 'fighting with security and police officers.' He is being charged with one felony count of resisting arrest with violence, and obstruction of justice, according to the police report.
Huddle Up: Anderson is coming off a nice rookie season in which he was one of the very few bright spots on the Jets, hauling in 42 catches for 587 yards and a pair of scores. However, if he is to face discipline from this, it could halt his momentum, considering the Jets will have a new starting quarterback entering 2017.
Jordan Leggett - TEPosted 5/7/17 8:23am ET
New York Jets TE Jordan Leggett 'needs some work,' according to NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes, who observed the rookie struggled with technique, route-running and drops in the two practices open to the media last week.
Huddle Up: It's not uncommon for a rookie to struggle with drops in his first few pro practices due to nerves, nor is it surprise Leggett needs fine-tuning with technique and route-running after spending his career in Clemson's spread offense. Leggett's biggest problem in college was bringing the same level of effort in every game. Regardless of his early struggles, he's got a decent chance to start Week 1 with Austin Seferian-Jenkins facing a two-game suspension and virtually no other competition behind him.
ArDarius Stewart - WRPosted 5/7/17 8:38am ET
New York Jets rookie WR ArDarius Stewart had a good couple of days of practice and is the most pro-ready receiver of the wideouts who participated in rookie minicamp this week, according to NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes.
Huddle Up: Stewart has a shot at contributing right away with Brandon Marshall moving on to play for the New York Giants and Eric Decker working his way back from offseason hip and shoulder surgeries. The Jets' quarterback situation figures to hold him back, however, so he's likely to be a fringe fantasy contributor at best in 2017.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 5/7/17 10:37am ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is still a candidate to be a post-June 1 cut, but ESPN's Rich Cimini would be 'surprised' if the team ends up cutting him.
Huddle Up: Decker is due to make $7.25 million in 2017, so releasing him when he could stick around to take a significant amount of pressure off players like Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa, ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen would seem to hurt more the Jets' rebuilding project more than it would help. If he remains a Jet, Decker will likely be a hit-or-miss WR3 in fantasy.
Jordan Leggett - TEPosted 5/6/17 11:03am ET
New York Jets offensive coordinator John Morton reportedly told rookie TE Jordan Leggett he 'loves' tight ends and wants to make them a 'go-to guy' in his offense.
Huddle Up: Former play-caller Chan Gailey rarely dialed up any plays for his tight ends, as the position has accounted for fewer than 30 targets in each of the last two seasons. Leggett could get an early shot to take advantage with Austin Seferian-Jenkins suspended the first two games, but the Jets' quarterback situation figures to render the point moot. As a result, Seferian-Jenkins and Leggett can be avoided in fantasy.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 5/3/17 9:05am ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) has been a full participant in the team's offseason conditioning program and will be ready to practice at the start of training camp in July. 'My health is good. I?m back and I?m doing everything right now. There are no (structural) issues. I?m just getting my strength back. But as far as everything else, I?m a full go,' Decker said.
Huddle Up: Without Brandon Marshall around this year, Decker will go back to being the team's top wideout, assuming the Jets don't cut or trade him before Week 1 as had been rumored at the start of the offseason. His current quarterback situation isn't going to do him any favors, however, so he should be considered a middling WR3 at best in fantasy for now.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 5/3/17 1:25pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown said he expects to compete with QBs Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty for the starting quarterback job.
Huddle Up: McCown will be the favorite for the job because of his experience, so he would need a bad training camp and preseason to lose the job. He will have some decent weapons to work with on offense but should not be more than a low-end No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 5/2/17 4:56pm ET
New York Jets QBs Josh McCown, Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty will compete for the starting quarterback position this offseason, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Huddle Up: The veteran McCown is the best bet to win the starting gig, but he will turn 38 years old in July and has only played in 13 games the last two seasons. Whoever starts for the Jets can be avoided in all formats.
ArDarius Stewart - WRPosted 4/28/17 7:29pm ET
The New York Jets selected WR ArDarius Stewart with the 79th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Stewart is an explosive, versatile receiver, and he has the tools to become a No. 2 receiver for the Jets. However, a lot of pieces have to fall into place, starting with the quarterback situation in New York. Stewart is a high-upside stash candidate in keeper leagues, but he doesn't need to be selected in redraft leagues.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 4/7/17 7:58am ET
Updating previous reports, New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder, hip) still has a large possibility of being with another team next season, in the opinion of beat writer Manish Mehta.
Huddle Up: Decker is now 30 years old, and he's coming off injuries to his shoulder and hip, and he had a knee injury late in 2015. He's still a reliable target, but his upside is fizzling. He's a WR4 for now.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 3/24/17 12:00pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown has not been assured that he will begin training camp as starter, and it is a decision which will be made by head coach Todd Bowles, according to general manager Mike Maccagnan.
Huddle Up: The Jets are 'highly unlikely' to add another free-agent quarterback per Maccagnan, but he acknowledged drafting another one is a possibility. McCown should still be considered the odds-on favorite, but he will turn 38 in July and has never played a full season. In short, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg should expect to make starts this season. It's going to be hard for fantasy owners to find any value in this passing game in 2017.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 3/18/17 5:36pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is expected to get a chance to complete his rehab from hip and shoulder surgeries before the Jets decide whether to keep or release him, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.
Huddle Up: With all the lives they've made this offseason, the Jets are not hurting for salary cap room. New York may be doing himself a favor by keeping Decker, if only to make it a bit easier for whatever quarterback it decides to settle on in 2017. Given the current state of the Jets, Decker will be hard-pressed to maintain WR3 value this season.
Sheldon Richardson - DEPosted 3/11/17 3:01pm ET
The New York Jets would 'consider' a trade of DE Sheldon Richardson to the Cincinnati Bengals for QB AJ McCarron, according to ESPN.com's Rich Cimini.
Huddle Up: At the moment, this proposed trade is nothing more than a 'hot internet rumor', according to Cimini, but one he believes the Jets have considered. Cimini also notes that both players will be free agents at the end of the 2017 season and Cincinnati would need to include a draft pick in order to make it work. If the trade ever comes to fruition, McCarron would be hard-pressed to be anything more than a low-end QB2 for the foreseeable future.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 3/3/17 7:10am ET
Free-agent WR Brandon Marshall (Jets) could receive interest from the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: That would be a solid fit for Marshall, who still has enough left in the tank to be a WR2 in fantasy.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 3/3/17 3:06pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is able to run straight ahead and should be able to participate in the non-contact organized team activities this offseason, according to general manager Mike Maccagnan. Maccagnan said he believes Decker will be ready for the start of the 2017 season.
Huddle Up: Decker underwent two surgeries during the regular season and could be on the roster bubble once he recovers from the surgeries because of his salary. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during the offseason to see if he suffers any setbacks. Decker can be a No. 2 receiver when he is healthy but probably would be a better option as a No. 3 receiver.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 3/2/17 7:11pm ET
The New York Jets are releasing WR Brandon Marshall, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Marshall could easily deliver WR2 numbers in 2017 if he lands with the right team. His departure opens the door for Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson to assume bigger roles in the offense
Eric Decker - WRPosted 3/2/17 8:17pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) has a 'good chance' of missing training camp.
Huddle Up: Decker has WR2 potential when healthy, but you may want to prepare for a slow start to the season as he works his way back from multiple injuries.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 3/2/17 9:05pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) could be cut this offseason whenever he passes his physical, according to beat writer Manish Mehta.
Huddle Up: Brandon Marshall has already been released. If Decker also leaves, Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson could both be fantasy starters in 2017.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 2/22/17 12:21pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall dropped seven passes this past season, according to ESPN Stats and Information.
Huddle Up: Marshall's future with the Jets is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to monitor the situation. He finished this season with 59 receptions, 788 yards and three touchdowns. Marshall probably will be a starting receiver for a team in 2017 and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 2/22/17 12:08pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) could be asked to restructure his contract this offseason because he is scheduled to count $8.75 million against the salary cap in 2017 and is coming off hip and shoulder injuries.
Huddle Up: Decker was limited to three games because of his injuries but was able to post 194 yards and two touchdowns in those games. He should be back with the Jets in 2017, but his value will depend on the team's quarterback. He probably should be considered a No. 3 receiver with the potential to be a No. 2 receiver.
Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 2/22/17 12:25pm ET
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa dropped five passes this past season, according to ESPN Stats and Information.
Huddle Up: Enunwa was a consistent option for the Jets this past season and led the team in receiving yards with 857 yards and touchdowns with four. He should continue to have a solid role in the passing game in 2017 and can be a No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 2/22/17 8:42pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell amassed 82 carries for 411 yards and two touchdowns while adding 21 catches for 141 yards over the final four games of the regular season.
Huddle Up: It's worth remembering Powell pulled off this feat with Bryce Petty and Ryan Fitzpatrick under center and behind a banged-up offensive line as well as a defense that didn't look like it cared at times toward the end of the season. Powell's strong finish should put him in line to begin 2017 no worse than a split backfield partner, although the film suggests he should start over Matt Forte. As such, Powell should be considered a high-upside flex for now.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 2/14/17 6:22am ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall has about a 60 percent chance of being cut this offseason, in the opinion of The Star-Ledger's Darryl Slater.
Huddle Up: Marshall went from the best season of his career to the worst since his rookie season. He turns 33 next month, and there appears to be plenty still in the tank. However, that WR1 window has probably closed. He'd be a solid WR2 candidate in a better situation.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 2/11/17 5:21pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said he will 'absolutely' change his leadership style after his vocal approach caused friction in the locker room in 2016.
Huddle Up: Marshall could end up being released in the offseason, and if he lands with a better offense, he could still be a WR2 candidate. If he is back with the Jets, he shouldn't be trusted as more than a WR3.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 2/10/17 8:08pm ET
New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's contract voids Friday, Feb. 10, but he likely won't become an official free agent until March 9.
Huddle Up: After struggling throughout 2016, Fitzpatrick is unlikely to land a starting gig no matter where he plays in 2017. His surprise 2015 campaign was probably his last run as a viable fantasy option.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 2/8/17 3:34pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said he believes he will be back with the Jets in 2017 because the organization has not given him any indication that he will not return.
Huddle Up: Marshall is scheduled to count $7.5 million against the salary cap in 2017 but he could be released since the team would save that amount of cap space. Owners will need to keep an eye on his situation because he could have more value based on his team. Marshall likely will start no matter where he plays and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.
