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.

Apr 06, 02:52 PM New York Jets QB Geno Smith has a lot at stake this offseason as far as money is concerned. About 32% of Smith's compensation this year is tied to offseason attendance. Smith must participate in around 80% of offseason workouts or he could miss out on approximately $276,328.
Apr 06, 01:32 PM New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he has been working with WR Brandon Marshall in order to start building chemistry with him. Smith has also worked with throwing coach Tom House in California this offseason.

Apr 04, 10:42 AM New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley could receive more playing time in 2015 than he did this past season, according to general manager Mike Maccagnan. 'In particular, I do like Kerley a little bit,' Maccagnan said. 'I've kind of scouted him coming out of college a while ago. I'm kind of excited to see him get a few more reps than he got last year in terms of his playing time.'
