Robby Anderson - WRPosted 6/17/19 8:46am ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson was deemed a 'very pleasant surprise' by new general manager Joe Douglas. 'He's a tough weapon for defenses to match up with, he can get behind you and he can challenge the defense vertically,' Douglas said. 'That was a very pleasant surprise.'
Huddle Up: It would be a very pleasant surprise if Anderson fulfilled his fantasy potential finally. He had a so-so 50-752-6 line last year, but he's a WR4 with hope of more.
Sam Darnold - QBPosted 6/13/19 10:51am ET
New York Jets QB Sam Darnold has impressed Jets wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson in his second season. 'It's everything,' Jefferson said of Darnold. 'The way that he works -- he's here early in the morning, he stays after, he probably doesn't leave this building until six, seven at night. He's in the old quarterback room. I've been so impressed with this kids work ethic and the way he attacks everything. It's just been awesome to see a young kid like that. It's almost like he's been here before. He's a young guy, but he has a lot of veteran attributes to him.'
Huddle Up: Darnold now has a year under his belt, and his supporting cast has improved, but he's still a low-end QB2 at best right now for fantasy purposes.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 6/13/19 6:10pm ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (undisclosed) did not practice Thursday, June 13, because of an undisclosed injury.
Huddle Up: The nature of Anderson's injury remains unclear, but unless it lingers into training camp, fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned. Anderson started to connect with Sam Darnold on some big plays late last season, and he's a WR3 candidate in 2019 as the top option in the passing attack.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 6/11/19 9:39am ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (undetermined) is present at the team's minicamp practice Tuesday, June 11 but is not participating in team drills.
Huddle Up: There are high hopes for Anderson in the Jets' new offense, and he's a strong WR3 to covet in drafts this summer.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 6/9/19 1:59pm ET
New York Jets QB Sam Darnold spoke glowingly of his team's re-signing of RB Bilal Powell this past week. 'Great to have BP back,' Darnold said. 'Can't wait to get to work with him. I haven't seen him in a while, so it's going to be nice to be able to see him. I know BP is a great guy and obviously a great player, so it's great to have him back.'
Huddle Up: Powell played seven games in 2018 before suffering what was initially believed to be a career-threatening neck injury. The 30-year-old rushed for 343 yards and zero touchdowns, but he caught 11 of 18 targets for 110 yards and one score. He'll enter camp battling for a depth position behind No. 1 back Le'Veon Bell.
Jermaine Kearse - WRPosted 6/6/19 6:50am ET
Free-agent WR Jermaine Kearse (Jets) is signing with the Detroit Lions Thursday, June 6, according to a source. Terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Kearse could be a value pick late in PPR drafts as a WR5.
Chris Herndon - TEPosted 5/31/19 12:08pm ET
New York Jets TE Chris Herndon looked 'really good' during organized team activities this week and 'can be a huge red-zone weapon for Darnold and new coach Adam Gase,' according to Brian Costello of the New York Post. Gase called Herndon a 'unicorn type player' in March and seems excited about what he can do with him inside his offense, per Costello.
Huddle Up: Herndon is coming off the board somewhere around the 14th round in recent drafts, making him a screaming value for owners who like to wait to take tight ends. Owners should get good bang for their buck even if they take him four rounds earlier. Even with additions of Le'Veon Bell and Jamison Crowder, the University of Miami product could easily push for low-end TE1 numbers.
Adam Gase - HCPosted 5/23/19 9:27am ET
New York Jets head coach Adam Gase on Thursday, May 23, called a recent report 'ridiculous' that the Jets will consider trading RB Le'Veon Bell before he played a down with the team.
Huddle Up: The offseason headlines surrounding Bell and his new team haven't been the brightest, but perhaps you can be the fantasy GM who takes advantage of other's fears and swoop up the RB1 Bell at an RB2 price.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 5/8/19 6:13am ET
Free-agent RB Bilal Powell (neck) was fully cleared from a neck injury that was once thought to threaten his career.
Huddle Up: Powell could return to RB4 relevance in the right situation. Keep tabs on him through the offseason.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 5/3/19 2:45pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Isaiah Crowell (Achilles) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, May 3.
Huddle Up: Josh Jacobs should receive most of the carries this season for the Raiders and can be at least a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 5/1/19 5:31am ET
Oakland Raiders RB Isaiah Crowell (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' in a workout Tuesday, April 30, and is out for the season.
Huddle Up: Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington will have a chance to fend for touches behind Josh Jacobs. Both backs will be in the RB5 mix in camp.
Sam Darnold - QBPosted 4/23/19 10:02am ET
New York Jets QB Sam Darnold called new head coach Adam Gase 'awesome' and added he is looking forward to his second NFL season. 'It's going to be fun to attack this year,' Darnold said Tuesday, April 23, at the team's voluntary minicamp. '... Good things to come.'
Huddle Up: Darnold showed some definite flashes as a rookie, throwing for 2,865 yards, 17 TDs and 15 interceptions in 13 games while finishing 27th among fantasy QBs. A jump to QB2 range in Year 2 is certainly on the table.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 4/5/19 3:50pm ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson said he expects to post at least 1,000 yards next season.
Huddle Up: Anderson has been targeted at least 94 times in each of the last two seasons and should continue to be the main option in the passing game. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues and has a chance to improve on his 2018 stats.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 3/28/19 1:23pm ET
Free-agent RB Isaiah Crowell (Jets) signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Oakland Raiders Thursday, March 28, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The addition of Crowell makes one wonder if Marshawn Lynch will not be back. If Lynch - and even Doug Martin - does not return then Crowell is the running back to draft in Oakland. He'll still have company, but there is potential for RB2 status in a new-look offense.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 3/14/19 7:50am ET
New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell was released Thursday, March 14.
Huddle Up: Crowell could land in a spot to be worth a look as an RB4 in the right timeshare.
Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 3/3/19 12:51pm ET
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa is expected to be more involved in the passing game under head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Enunwa was limited to 11 games this past season because of injuries and finished with 449 yards and one touchdown on 388 receptions. He could be a slot receiver for the team in 2019 and a possible late-round option in fantasy leagues.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 2/28/19 12:24pm ET
New York Jets restricted free-agent WR Robby Anderson was given a second-round tender Thursday, Feb. 28.
Huddle Up: Anderson was one of the few bright spots for the Jets a year ago, tallying 752 yards and six touchdowns in 14 games. Another offseason with Sam Darnold could catapult Anderson into the WR2 realm, but it's safer to take him as a WR3 at best. Of course, another team could send him an offer sheet.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 2/27/19 1:28pm ET
New York Jets restricted free-agent WR Robby Anderson has impressive speed and also the ability to track deep passes, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Anderson probably will return to the Jets next season as long as he receives a tender offer. He has posted 13 touchdowns over the last two seasons and has missed only two games since entering the league in 2016. Anderson has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy receiver next season.
Sam Darnold - QBPosted 2/15/19 8:41pm ET
New York Jets QB Sam Darnold's 80.7 Total QBR over the final four weeks of the 2018 season was the best mark in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Darnold has his share of ups and downs as a rookie, but the strong finish could be a glimpse of what's to come. He should be viewed as a QB2 for now, but he could make the jump to QB1 sooner rather than later, especially if the Jets add some offensive weapons this offseason.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 2/13/19 8:05am ET
Updating previous reports, New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell is expected to be released before a $2 million roster bonus kicks in March 15.
Huddle Up: Crowell could still have RB4 or RB5 value, but it depends on where he lands.
Sam Darnold - QBPosted 2/10/19 9:21am ET
New York Jets QB Sam Darnold has a bright future, according to former standout CB Darrelle Revis. 'I think he (Darnold) can bring a Super Bowl in the near future for the Jets,' Revis told TMZ last week in Atlanta before Super Bowl LIII. 'It's going to take some time, but I feel like he's capable of doing it.'
Huddle Up: As a rookie last season, Darnold threw for 2,865 yards, 17 TDs and 13 interceptions in 13 games while compiling a 4-9 QB won-loss record. Still, playing with a depleted surrounding cast and not much help, Darnold was better than the numbers showed and will be on the QB2 radar this summer.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 2/9/19 6:18pm ET
Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent RB Tevin Coleman could be signed by the New York Jets to lead their backfield in 2019, according to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com. Cimini also believes the Jets will cut RB Isaiah Crowell and not pursue impending free-agent RB Bilal Powell.
Huddle Up: Coleman was solid, although not spectacular, as the lead back for the Falcons last year. If he does end up as the No. 1 back for the Jets, he should at least be a volume-based RB2.
Elijah McGuire - RBPosted 2/6/19 4:41pm ET
New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire likely will be the No. 2 running back for the Jets next season.
Huddle Up: McGuire played well during the second half of the season and probably will see a handful of touches in each game in 2019. He can be a late-round option in some leagues and could be a flex option against certain opponents in point-per-reception leagues.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 2/3/19 1:12pm ET
New York Jets restricted free-agent WR Robby Anderson could receive the second-round tender offer this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Rich Cimini.
Huddle Up: Anderson was limited because of injuries this season but still posted 752 yards and six touchdowns. He has been targeted 208 times over the last two season and has become a reliable receiver for the Jets. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues in 2019.
Sam Darnold - QBPosted 2/1/19 6:33pm ET
New York Jets QB Sam Darnold said he is 'excited' to work with head coach Adam Gase and believes Gase can make him a better quarterback. 'I think he's going to help me with everything, mechanics, but mainly how to play the position in the NFL,' Darnold said.
Huddle Up: Darnold had an inconsistent rookie year, but his potential flashed at times. Another year of experience should only help, especially if the Jets add some more weapons in the offseason. Consider him a QB2 heading into 2019.
Elijah McGuire - RBPosted 1/25/19 6:51pm ET
New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire said he used the time he missed with a foot injury at the start of the 2018 season to log 'mental reps' in the film room, which helped him become a better blocker and better understand what opposing defenses are trying to do.
Huddle Up: The Jets have plenty of question marks at running back heading into 2019, and there is a chance that both Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell could be gone. Depending on how the offseason plays out, McGuire could have a chance to carve out a steady role.
Chris Herndon - TEPosted 1/9/19 10:50pm ET
New York Jets TE Chris Herndon pleaded guilty to DWI on Tuesday, Jan. 9, stemming from an incident this past June 2 when he crashed his SUV into another vehicle. Herndon will lose his license for 90 days as a result and is likely to be suspended by the NFL, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.
Huddle Up: Herndon enjoyed a solid rookie campaign and looks to be a player on the rise, but a suspension of any length could push him from late-round flier to watch list candidate in a hurry.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 12/30/18 1:26pm ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson caught three passes for 24 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Anderson had a strong second half of the season despite his Week 17 performance and appears to have a good chemistry with Sam Darnold. He can be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues next season.
Deontay Burnett - WRPosted 12/30/18 1:21pm ET
New York Jets WR Deontay Burnett caught five passes for 73 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Burnett received a bigger role against the Patriots because of the injuries at the position and made the most out of the opportunity. He probably will have to compete for roster spot next season and can be avoided in most leagues.
Elijah McGuire - RBPosted 12/30/18 1:17pm ET
New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire rushed for 41 yards on 18 carries against the New England Patriots in Week 17. He also caught two passes for 24 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: McGuire probably will not be the starting running back for the Jets next season but could be the No. 2 back. He could be a late-round option in deeper leagues next season if he receives around 10 touches per game.
