Josh McCown - QBPosted 11/14/17 6:08am ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown will remain the starting quarterback when the team returns from its Week 11 bye, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Huddle Up: With bye weeks nearly in the rearview mirror, McCown's roster viability is pretty marginal in fantasy.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 11/12/17 12:38pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown went 23-for-39 for 262 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 10.
Huddle Up: McCown continues to be a solid starting quarterback for the Jets and has seven touchdowns and two interceptions in his last three games. He will be facing the Carolina Panthers in Week 12 and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 11/10/17 8:14am ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is out of practice Friday, Nov. 10.
Huddle Up: Forte looks doubtful to go in Week 10. Bilal Powell would be an attractive RB2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are one of the worst teams against the position the last five weeks.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 11/10/17 6:33pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte's (knee) knee injury is creating concern that it could keep him sidelined beyond Week 10, according to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com.
Huddle Up: Forte has already been ruled out for Week 10, making Bilal Powell a RB2 candidate in PPR formats against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 11/9/17 9:06am ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is out of practice Thursday, Nov. 9.
Huddle Up: He has swelling in his troublesome knee, and he might be in danger of missing Week 10 after a big week last week. Friday will be pivotal for the RB2 in fantasy.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 11/8/17 12:34pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 8.
Huddle Up: Forte has missed or been limited in practice plenty of times this season, but he has only missed one game. The veteran back has been steadily involved in the Jets' offense over the last few weeks and demands at least flex consideration with more value in PPR leagues.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 11/8/17 6:30pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown could return to the team next season, as suggested by general manager Mike Maccagnan.
Huddle Up: There's no question that McCown has exceeded any and all expectations in his first year with the Jets, especially since he was merely supposed to be a bridge quarterback. The 38-year-old has been enjoying a renaissance season, posting a 96.1 QB Rating, which would be the second-highest of his career if it holds, but owners shouldn't invest too much into the longtime journeyman. Sooner than later, it seems likely McCown will begin to regress towards his norm.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 11/8/17 11:16pm ET
Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is dealing with swelling in his surgically repaired right knee. He did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 8.
Huddle Up: Forte has only missed one game this season, but when you hear the word 'swelling' in conjunction with 'surgically repaired' it's a concern -- especially when you consider the team hasn't done anything since last Thursday. Keep a close eye on the situation as the week progresses and be ready to deploy alternatives if Forte has to sit this Sunday.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 11/2/17 8:56pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte rushed 14 times for 77 yards and two touchdowns and caught four passes for 19 yards in a 34-21 win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 9.
Huddle Up: It was Forte's best rushing performance of the year by a wide margin, and he found the end zone for the first time. This was probably the ceiling for the veteran, but with 29 catches on the year, he remains a viable flex option in PPR formats.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 11/2/17 10:12pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown attempted 20 passes, completing 14 of them for 140 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 9 win over the Buffalo Bills. McCown added 13 yards and a touchdown as a runner.
Huddle Up: McCown was in full game manager mode Thursday night, throwing for a season-low 140 yards in the process. He did account for multiple TDs for the fifth straight game, though, so he at least deserves a roster spot as a QB2.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 11/2/17 10:36pm ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson caught four passes for 48 yards and a touchdown during the team's 34-21 victory over the Buffalo Bills Thursday, Nov. 2.
Huddle Up: That's three straight games with a score for Anderson, who made the most of a quiet night for the passing game. While Anderson isn't a must start he's a legitimate option in the right matchup, such as Week 10 against a shaky Tampa Bay secondary.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 11/2/17 10:30pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell logged nine carries for 74 yards (8.8 yards per carry) against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, Nov. 2.
Huddle Up: Despite receiving fewer carries than Matt Forte (14) or Elijah McGuire (13), Powell still managed his second-best output of the season. While he has been making the most of his limited opportunities, Powell is a tough start for fantasy owners who should be leery of his uneven work load.
Elijah McGuire - RBPosted 11/2/17 10:44pm ET
New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire gained 30 yards on 13 carries (2.3 yards per carry) in Week 9 against the Buffalo Bills. McGuire had one reception for nine yards.
Huddle Up: In his last five games, McGuire has averaged 1.8, 2.2, 2.3, 2.0 and 2.3 yards per carry, respectively. That's Trent Richardson territory. With Bilal Powell and Matt Forte both producing it's unclear how long the team will continue to invest touches on McGuire, who did enjoy some success earlier this season. Whatever Todd Bowles decides, you should keep McGuire away from your lineup.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 11/1/17 12:09pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Nov. 1.
Huddle Up: Forte will be good to go tomorrow night, but he faces a top notch Buffalo Bills rush defense. He's mainly been involved in the passing game anyway and should only be started as a PPR flex.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/31/17 3:44pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was a limited participant in practice Tuesday, Oct. 31.
Huddle Up: Forte isn't going away after dealing with an injury earlier this season too. He has played an integral role in the Jets' passing game out of the backfield even with Bilal Powell healthy, but his rushing leaves something to be desired. Forte cannot be viewed as more than a flex in PPR leagues.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/30/17 4:20pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was limited during the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 30.
Huddle Up: Forte received 10 touches in Week 8 and has been involved in the passing game over the last several weeks. He will continue to share playing time with Bilal Powell but could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 10/29/17 1:53pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell rushed for 33 yards on 14 carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8. He also caught three passes for 28 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Powell has been held to under 44 yards rushing in each of the last three games but has been more involved in the passing game. He should receive a similar role next week against the Buffalo Bills and can be a flex option in most fantasy leagues.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 10/29/17 1:46pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown went 26-for-33 for 257 yards and two touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8.
Huddle Up: McCown has thrown for at least two touchdowns in each of the last four games and has been a solid starting quarterback for the Jets this season. He will be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense next week and probably should be kept on the bench.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 10/29/17 2:07pm ET
New York Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught five passes for 28 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Seferian-Jenkins saw his three-game touchdown streak snapped this week but was able to catch all five of his targets during the game. He has been a solid target for the Jets in the passing game since returning from his suspension and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 10/29/17 2:04pm ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson caught six passes for 104 yards and one touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Anderson posted his first 100-yard game of the season and has caught a touchdown in each of the last two games. He appears to be the Jets' top receiver and has been targeted at least five times in all but one game this season. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues despite the tough matchup.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/29/17 1:59pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte caught six passes for 45 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8. He also rushed for seven yards on four carries.
Huddle Up: Forte had a big role in the passing game over the last three weeks and has caught at least five passes in each of those games. He should be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues because of his role.
Jermaine Kearse - WRPosted 10/29/17 2:11pm ET
New York Jets WR Jermaine Kearse caught two passes for 14 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Kearse has had some good games this season for the Jets but has been limited to three catches and 43 yards over the last two games. He should continue to see a decent amount of targets but probably should be benched next week.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/29/17 7:58pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte criticized the team's offensive coordinator publicly for abandoning the run during the Week 8 loss against the Atlanta Falcons. 'I only had four carries this game, so I don't really think we ran the ball enough with the weather being the way it was,' Forte said. He added, 'It continued to rain the entire game. I think we only ran the ball 20 times. (There) should have been at least one person getting 20 carries - something like that - with the way the weather was. I thought we were going to grind them out on the ground like that, but it ended up not turning out that way.'
Huddle Up: The Jets actually passed 37 times while running 21 times, which was surprising during a sloppy, rainy game. Forte's public criticism of the OC isn't likely to be popular with the brass, however, even if he was correct. He remains a fantasy reserve in most formats at this point of his career.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 10/27/17 12:12pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.
Huddle Up: McCown has been a solid starter for the Jets this season and has thrown seven touchdowns and four interceptions over the last three games. He will be facing a solid Atlanta Falcons pass defense and probably can be avoided in most leagues.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 10/27/17 12:16pm ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.
Huddle Up: Anderson has been a solid receiver for the Jets and has been targeted at least five times in each of the last five games. He will be facing a solid Atlanta Falcons defense this week and can be benched if owners have better options available.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/27/17 12:12pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.
Huddle Up: Forte recorded 82 total yards last week and should receive a similar role against the Atlanta Falcons. Owners in deeper leagues can consider Forte as a flex option in Week 8.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/26/17 11:16am ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: You never want to see a player take a step back in his practice participation. If Forte can get back to being full go on Friday then he can be considered as a flex, but his ceiling is greatly lowered when Bilal Powell is healthy.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 10/26/17 2:39pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown (back) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: McCown has been an under-the-radar fantasy quarterback in 2017. The Jets have been forced to pass early and often frequently and McCown has held his own. In fact, he currently sits at the QB10 spot through seven weeks. Don't be afraid to plug him into your starting lineup, especially if byes and/or injuries abound at the position.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 10/26/17 2:33pm ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle) was a full practice participant Thursday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Anderson scored for just the second time all season last week but only managed 35 yards. He leads the Jets in targets (46) and yards (331) this season, but is only the WR39 on the year in PPR scoring. Starting Anderson as more than a flex is risky business.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 10/25/17 1:11pm ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 25.
Huddle Up: It's difficult to trust anyone in the Jets' passing game other than Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Anderson and the rest of the wide receivers are too inconsistent to be viewed as viable starters on a week-to-week basis. If Anderson does play, he could be matched up against talented Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant most the game. Only start Anderson as a flex if you're desperate.
