2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
New York Jets
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

You would have thought the Jets were a disaster last season but they finished .500 and were close to earning a playoff spot. So they aren't too far off from a return trip to the playoffs. They still have plenty of talent defensively and should be better offensively than last year. The offense remains the key to the season, though. If that unit can show more consistency, another win or two could happen for the Jets. It will be important for Geno Smith to play more consistent and under control.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Quarterback Geno Smith showed some good things at times his rookie season but also really struggled at times. He should show more consistency this season, especially since he has some more talent to work with at receiver and tight end. Smith should show a little more consistency this season and produce a few more big games. He won't be a surefire fantasy starter but could emerge as a spot play or backup for fantasy teams. We expect him to get better.
FANTASY DUD
It is just going to be hard for newly acquired Eric Decker to finish anywhere near his numbers with the Broncos. He moves to a much worse offensive attack with an inexperienced quarterback at the helm. He'll have a few big games but don't expect consistency in this offense. He'll be all over the map, frustrating fantasy teams. Decker should get a bunch of targets with his new team but have a hard time getting his numbers near his past seasons with the Broncos.

Team Notes

Jul 20, 11:42 PM New York Jets CB Dee Milliner can become a shutdown corner in the NFL, according to head coach Rex Ryan. 'I think he's got a chance to be,' Ryan said. 'I don't think there's any doubt. But a lot of things can happen. A guy can get injured. A guy can do whatever where a guy gets derailed. But (I'm) saying that I'll be disappointed if he's not. Something like (injuries), in my opinion, would have to happen to him for him not to end up being that kind of player.'
Jul 19, 09:52 AM New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks his team can do special things in 2014, but also called this season a transition year. Ryan understands people not seeing that right now. What they're missing is - and this isn't their fault - is they don't see what I see in the building every day, Ryan said. I think it's a transition year, but we're going to bring it to another level. I know where I want this team to go and that's where I expect this team to go. So, you know, are we a better team? Dang right. . . . That may be a fact that we're rebuilding this team, but by no means does that mean that I don't expect to improve on where we were.
Jul 18, 02:02 PM New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan recently said he's confident the team will make the playoffs this season, adding that another 8-8 record would be a disappointment.
Jul 18, 09:52 AM New York Jets WR Jacoby Ford is the favorite to win the kick returner spot over WR Clyde Gates.
Jul 17, 01:42 PM New York Jets OG Oday Aboushi could compete for the starting left guard and right guard jobs during training camp. Aboushi worked at left guard with the first-team offense during offseason workouts, because OG Willie Colon (knee) had offseason knee surgery.
Jul 16, 02:13 PM New York Jets WR David Nelson said his teammates believe this is QB Geno Smith's team and that QB Michael Vick is seen as the backup. 'For all of us, it's Geno's team, Nelson said. 'And from what we've been told and what we've been working toward, it's Geno's team, and Mike's coming in to kind of (fill) a supporting role. If anything happens to Geno, we have a proven starter and a proven winner backing him up. That's the direction we're moving.'
Jul 16, 09:23 AM New York Jets WRs Clyde Gates, Greg Salas and Quincy Enunwa are on the bubble for a roster spot.
Jul 14, 10:53 PM New York Jets RB Daryl Richardson (toe) will have to regain the speed and explosiveness that he showed as a rookie in 2012 if he is going to make the roster, according ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini. Richardson's 2013 season was ruined by a turf-toe injury.
Jul 11, 10:32 PM The New York Jets will keep CB Kyle Wilson at nickel back because he has settled into the position nicely.
Jul 11, 02:22 PM New York Jets rookie QB Tajh Boyd acknowledged that the Jets' offense is completely different to that of Clemson's. Boyd said he's been working on footwork, reads and becoming more precise. Boyd added that he's doing everything he can to understand the offense, but knows it will take time.
Jul 10, 08:12 PM New York Jets S Calvin Pryor and SS Dawan Landry are projected as the team's starters, according to Darryl Slater of The Star-Ledger. Slater believes head coach Rex Ryan will want Landry to serve as a veteran presence alongside Pryor.
Jul 09, 01:13 PM New York Jets LB Antwan Barnes (knee) hopes to be ready to participate when training camp begins.
Jul 07, 04:33 PM New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he likes the team's chances to make it to the Super Bowl this upcoming season.
Jul 07, 04:22 PM New York Jets OG Oday Aboushi could work with the starting offense at right guard when training camp begins if OG Willie Colon (knee) is not able to participate.
Jul 03, 05:52 PM New York Jets TEs Zach Sudfeld, Chris Pantale and Colin Anderson will compete for one or two roster spots during training camp. It is not known if the team will keep three or four tight ends on their final roster.
Jul 02, 02:53 PM New York Jets QBs Tajh Boyd and Matt Simms will compete for the No. 3 quarterback job during training camp.
