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.

Aug 25, 03:03 PM New York Jets CB Antonio Allen (concussion) will not play in the team's final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28. However, team doctors are optimistic regarding Allen, who is reportedly doing well with the concussion protocol.
Aug 25, 02:52 PM New York Jets CB Dee Milliner (ankle) cannot sprint on his injured ankle but head coach Rex Ryan is still hopeful the cornerback will be ready for the regular season opener.

Aug 24, 09:48 PM New York Jets RB Chris Johnson is impressing the defense he practices against every day. Oh yeah, he still has it, linebacker David Harris said. We noticed it the first day when we were in Cortland. He's still the fastest guy on the field. He's still got a lot of juice in those legs.
Aug 24, 03:32 PM New York Jets WR Stephen Hill (illness) did not practice because of an illness Sunday, Aug. 24.
Aug 24, 12:12 PM The New York Jets released WR Jacoby Ford, WR Mike Campbell, TE Colin Anderson, FB Chad Young, DE Anthony Grady and CB Ras-I Dowling Sunday, Aug. 24.

Aug 23, 12:32 AM New York Jets QB Geno Smith will be the team's week-to-week starting quarterback for the regular season, head coach Rex Ryan said Friday, Aug. 22, after the preseason game against the New York Giants. Smith completed nine of his 14 pass attempts for 137 yards and a touchdown, and he also ran three times for 17 yards.
