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

Oct 22, 04:13 PM New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.
Oct 22, 04:13 PM New York Jets LB Trevor Reilly (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. OT Oday Aboushi (shoulder), CB Phillip Adams (groin), OG Willie Colon (knee), LB David Harris (shoulder) and WR Greg Salas (ankle, wrist) were limited. LB Antwan Barnes (knee), C Nick Mangold (shoulder), RB Bilal Powell (foot) and CB Darrin Walls (knee) were full participants.
Oct 22, 02:43 PM New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Impact: Decker will be fine for the Week 8 game.
Oct 22, 02:33 PM New York Jets WR Percy Harvin won't play 50 snaps in his debut with the team in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Fantasy Impact: Harvin won't be worth using until he starts getting a full compliment of snaps.
Oct 22, 03:23 AM Free-agent OT Bruce Campbell (Panthers) worked out for the Carolina Panthers on Tuesday, Oct. 21. He had been previously released by the club.
Oct 21, 04:23 PM New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley officially signed a four-year, $16 million extension Tuesday, Oct. 21. Kerley will receive $5.4 million of guaranteed money. He has 22 catches for 201 yards and a touchdown this year.
Oct 21, 02:43 PM The New York Jets are expected to sign WR Jeremy Kerley to a four-year extension Tuesday, Oct. 21, according to a source. Financial details were not disclosed.
Oct 20, 02:33 PM New York Jets WR Percy Harvin's role on offense will depend on how fast he can learn the playbook, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan said Harvin will return kicks for the team.
Oct 19, 02:22 AM Clarifying a previous item, the Seattle Seahawks will receive a conditional sixth-round draft pick that could turn into a fourth-round selection from the New York Jets, in exchange for WR Percy Harvin. It was originally thought the pick was a fourth-round selection that could go as high as the second round.
Oct 18, 07:02 PM Updating previous reports, New York Jets WR Percy Harvin's trade to join the Jets is official.
Oct 17, 08:22 PM New York Jets WR Percy Harvin is onto his third NFL team, and he looks for more success than with the Seattle Seahawks. In Minnesota, he averaged 7.3 targets per game with 61.2 receiving yards per game and 34.2 yards per game after the catch (YAC). He ranked sixth in YAC. In Seattle, he managed just 4.5 targets per game, with only 25.0 receiving yards per game, 17.0 yards per catch and he ranked 99th in the league in YAC.
Oct 17, 08:02 PM The New York Jets will pay WR Percy Harvin $7.1 million for the rest of the 2014 season, the last of the guaranteed money in a deal which runs through 2018. Harvin's salary for 2015 is $10.5 million.
Oct 17, 06:42 PM New York Jets WR Percy Harvin was traded by the Seattle Seahawks in part because he had anger issues while with the Seahawks.
Oct 17, 05:48 PM The Seahawks have traded Harvin to the Jets for a conditional draft pick.

Fantasy Impact: Wow. Needless to say, this hurts his fantasy value going forward, moving to a less explosive offense. He should get the ball a number of ways with his new team, though.
Oct 17, 04:52 PM Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 17, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Oct 17, 12:42 PM Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin has a great ability to turn short plays into big gains, and his speed makes him a home run threat every time he touches the ball, which is why the team plans to utilize him downfield more often. However, the deep ball never has been part of Harvin's repertoire in the NFL; he's mainly been used as a quick-hit receiver and non-traditional running back. He's caught half of his 22 catches behind the line of scrimmage this year, and he's averaging just six yards per catch, the lowest of any receiver with at least five catches. Of the 434 passes intended for Harvin in his career, only 36 have gone for more than 21 yards, according to STATS Inc. Seattle also likes to use Harvin as a decoy to create mismatches elsewhere on the field.
