Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 7/21/17 8:57pm ET
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa could move to the outside this season because of the lack of depth at the position.
Huddle Up: Enunwa should be the top option by default after the offseason departures of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, but the passing attack for the Jets doesn't figure to be potent. He could be a volume-based WR4.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 7/13/17 7:33pm ET
New York Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins 'looks like the clear starter' ahead TE Jordan Leggett and TE Eric Tomlinson because of his edge in talent and experience, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.
Huddle Up: Seferian-Jenkins has had some off-field issues, but he appears focused on football. Meanwhile, a lack of weapons in the passing game could lead to plenty of targets this season. He is worth a flier as a TE2.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 7/10/17 11:39am ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson may lose his No. 2 wide receiver position quickly, in the opinion of the New York Post's Brian Costello. Costello believes Anderson needs to become a more complete receiver, including becoming a better route-runner.
Huddle Up: The Jets are ultra-thin at wide receiver after the losses of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. The Jets are ultra-thin at wide receiver after the losses of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. Quincy Enunwa is the only Jet receiver worth drafting right now, but Anderson deserves a late-round pick given the lack of depth, skill and talent at the position on the team.
Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 7/10/17 9:28pm ET
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa had the highest catch rate on deep targets in the NFL last season, hauling in eight such receptions on 10 tries for 278 yards.
Huddle Up: What makes it even more impressive is that Enunwa accomplished this feat with the likes of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Geno Smith and Bryce Petty throwing him the football. Either way, owners shouldn't put too much stock in Enunwa going into fantasy drafts, as the Jets are once again projected to have one of the league's worst offenses, with Josh McCown set to start under center.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 7/8/17 6:41pm ET
New York Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins said he knows this year's offense more than past offenses, and he likes how offensive coordinator John Morton is making an emphasis to use the tight end.
Huddle Up: The athletic talent has always been there, and Seferian-Jenkins appears to be focused on football for once. The Jets don't have many weapons on offense, so he isn't a terrible player to take a flier on in the final rounds of drafts.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 6/23/17 7:38am ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte will be the offensive workhorse this season, in the opinion of NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes.
Huddle Up: Forte will be 32 late in the season, and the signs of age have been showing for a couple of years now. Bilal Powell is also waiting in the wings, which doesn't lend to conventional wisdom to use Forte as the workhorse. Forte is still a useful PPR back, but it's only as an RB3.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 6/18/17 5:13pm ET
New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg made some strides during minicamp, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post, and Costello believes Hackenberg could beat out QB Josh McCown to be the Week 1 starter.
Huddle Up: With a young, unproven group of receivers, don't expect much fantasy value from whoever ends up under center for the Jets this season.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 6/18/17 5:59pm ET
Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) has signed a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, according to a source. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Decker, coming off of a serious injury, is a risky fantasy buy in any format. The Titans have a host of weaponry now for Marcus Mariota, but each one of these wideouts will be tough to play any given week. Decker is a WR4 with flex consideration, unless it becomes clear early on that he has a rapport with Mariota.
ArDarius Stewart - WRPosted 6/16/17 9:04am ET
New York Jets WR ArDarius Stewart (thumb, groin) told reporters he does not know if he will be ready for training camp after recently undergoing thumb and groin surgeries.
Huddle Up: Stewart has already missed all of OTAs and minicamp, so it would be next to impossible for him to make much of a rookie-year impact if he is unable to be ready for camp. Fellow rookie Chad Hansen should now be considered the favorite as the main back up to Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 6/15/17 4:18pm ET
New York Jets QBs Josh McCown, Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty are in a genuine quarterback competition, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said so far there is no frontrunner for the starting position and that the quarterback battle will be sorted out during training camp.
Huddle Up: McCown would be the most beneficial from a fantasy standpoint. Even if Bowles doesn't call McCown the favorite, McCown's experience and leadership probably give him an edge. Even so, McCown has topped 2,500 yards only once in his 14-year career and has never thrown more than 13 touchdowns in a season. He can be avoided.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 6/14/17 6:21am ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte is likely to remain with the team because he is guaranteed $4 million this season, in the opinion of beat writer Rich Cimini.
Huddle Up: Forte turns 32 in December and is oft-injured. His seven rushing touchdowns last season were the most he has had since 2013, but his 3.7 yards per carry was the second-lowest average of his career. He's still a serviceable RB3 in PPR leagues, but the upside is minimal.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 6/14/17 10:35am ET
Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) is meeting with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday, June 14.
Huddle Up: A marriage between Decker and the Titans makes sense on a number of levels, not the least of which includes Decker and his wife - country singer Jessie James - owning a home in Nashville. It'd be a decent fantasy landing spot for Decker, although it would complicate a wide receiver depth chart that is becoming increasingly crowded with good, if not very good, options. The ex-Jet and Bronco would almost certainly top out as a WR3, fighting for targets along with Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews and Delanie Walker.
ArDarius Stewart - WRPosted 6/14/17 1:13pm ET
New York Jets WR ArDarius Stewart (groin, thumb) recently underwent surgeries to repair his groin and thumb injuries. Head coach Todd Bowles said Stewart is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Stewart is expected to compete for the No. 3 receiver job if he is healthy for training camp. He would see a solid amount of targets if he wins the job but can be avoided in most fantasy leagues because of the team's quarterback situation.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 6/14/17 3:11pm ET
Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) left his visit with the Tennessee Titans Wednesday, June 14, without a contract.
Huddle Up: Decker could still sign with the Titans but probably will meet with other teams before he makes a decision. Decker has been a terrific receiver over the last few seasons but was limited to three games in 2016. He probably would be a No. 3 receiver at worst with his new team and can be considered a No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver depending on his team.
Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 6/13/17 2:47pm ET
New York Jets WRs Quincy Enunwa (neck) will not participate in minicamp this week, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Huddle Up: Enunwa will be the Jets wide receiver to target this year with the losses of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. He'll be bogged down by a subpar quarterback, though, and is merely a flex option at best.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 6/12/17 12:56pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker could still be traded for or signed by the Baltimore Ravens even with the Ravens signing WR Jeremy Maclin.
Huddle Up: Baltimore's receiving corps looks a lot better with Maclin, but they could use more help after losing Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken and Dennis Pitta this offseason. Maclin's presence and the possible addition of Decker would certainly aid Flacco, but Flacco is too unreliable as a starting fantasy quarterback. Decker would remain in the WR3 to WR4 conversation.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 6/12/17 2:10pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker was released Monday, June 12, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Decker is now able to choose who he plays for, as opposed to if he were traded. Quincy Enunwa now officially heads the Jets' receiving corps. Guys like Robby Anderson, Jalin Marshall and Charone Peake will have an opportunity to start now, but Enunwa is the only Jets receiver with weekly flex potential.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 6/11/17 1:16pm ET
The Cleveland Browns may consider pursuing New York Jets WR Eric Decker when he is released, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.
Huddle Up: Decker was limited to three games in 2016 because of an injury but posted at least 1,000 yards in three of the previous four season and would help the Browns passing game. He likely would be a top-three receiver for the Browns if he signed, but he could be more of a No. 4 fantasy receiver because of the team's quarterback situation.
ArDarius Stewart - WRPosted 6/10/17 12:07pm ET
New York Jets WR ArDarius Stewart appears to be the leading candidate for the No. 3 receiver job this season, in the opinion of NJ.com's Connor Hughes.
Huddle Up: Stewart has missed workouts this offseason because of a thumb injury but should be fine for training camp. He would receive a solid amount of playing time if he becomes the slot receiver but could be avoided in some fantasy leagues because of the team's quarterback situation. He should have some value in keeper leagues because he could be a top-three receiver for the Jets for years to come.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 6/9/17 7:02pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker is not likely to be pursued by the Minnesota Vikings, according to general manager Rick Spielman. 'We always look at everybody that is released, but we feel pretty confident with our receiving corps right now,' Spielman said.
Huddle Up: Wherever Decker lands, he should at least be a serviceable WR3 thanks to his impact in the red zone. He has double-digit scores in three of his last five seasons.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 6/9/17 9:51pm ET
New York Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins was the most impressive player on the field during OTAs, according to beat writer Connor Hughes.
Huddle Up: The talent has always been there, and after he dropped some weight in the offseason, Seferian-Jenkins seems committed to improving. The Jets don't have many weapons to throw to, so he could end up being a big part of the offense. He is worth a flier as a TE2.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 6/7/17 9:19am ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker will be traded or released this week. One of the teams the Jets are talking to regarding a possible trade are the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: The Ravens could use another receiver to help out Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman. Wallace and Perriman are both top-notch deep threats and Decker would serve as more of a possession receiver. In Baltimore, Decker would garner WR3 consideration.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 6/6/17 9:40am ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) did not have a red non-contact jersey for the start of practice Tuesday, June 6, but he put one on before the start in team drills.
Huddle Up: The fact Decker is even on the field is good news considering he is coming off multiple offseason surgeries. As a result, it appears he has a very good chance of practicing without restrictions when training camp rolls around next month. If he is anywhere close to his normal self, Decker should have no problem leading the team in receiving, but the Jets' quarterback situation makes him a weak WR3 option at best.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 6/6/17 3:00pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker has been informed that he will either be released or traded this week, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Jets have suddenly turned into money mongers, releasing two of their veterans in the same week to add cap space. Quincy Enunwa will not head the Jets' measly receiving corps. Aside from Enunwa, Bilal Powell and Matt Forte, there's really no other Jet to be drafted for fantasy purposes.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 6/6/17 8:30pm ET
Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Eric Decker is healthy following offseason hip and shoulder surgeries.
Huddle Up: Decker has been informed he will either be traded or released within the next two to three days. After initially appearing as if he might be out through training camp or longer, the 30-year-old is well ahead of schedule and should get a new lease on life in fantasy by getting out of New York. Decker will almost certainly start for whatever team signs him, and he figures to be no worse than a WR3 in fantasy wherever he lands.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 6/4/17 1:12pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown has an advantage over QBs Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty in the competition for the starting quarterback job because he is familiar with the West Coast offense, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles also said he expects Hackenberg to play at some point.
Huddle Up: McCown should win the starting job during training camp and will have some decent weapons to work with in the passing game. McCown has had some success during his career but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues. Hackenberg probably will see playing time if the Jets are eliminated from playoff contention but does not have much fantasy value.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 5/30/17 9:43am ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown has been 'far and away' best quarterback at OTAs, according to NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes.
Huddle Up: This is not a surprising development, as McCown has been around the block a few times, while Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg are projects who may or may not have much of an NFL future. McCown has a poor track record of staying healthy, however, so either Patty and/or Hackenberg will probably make some starts in 2017 as the Jets hope to remain in position to select their long-term answer at the position in the 2018 draft.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 5/27/17 9:43am ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown is the 'heavy favorite' to be named the starting quarterback even though the team plans on having an open competition, giving McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg an equal amount of practice reps, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.
Huddle Up: McCown has not shown much durability throughout his long career, so it might not matter much anyway. In reality, there's a decent chance all three players may log starts in 2017. Don't be surprised if Hackenberg ends up getting the most, if only so the Jets can see what they have in him before investing what figures to be a top-five pick into another college signal-caller. None of the three warrant a fantasy draft pick this summer.
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.
