2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
New York Jets
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Jets improved some offensively this offseason but still don‚??t have that franchise quarterback on the roster, which is a concern. Until that position gets figured out, the Jets are going to have a hard time making the playoffs. They‚??ll be in most games because of a great defense but an inept offense will cost them plenty of games. Expect the Jets to be around the .500 mark this season. New York needs to find that franchise quarterback to lead the team for years to come.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Tight end Jace Amaro should some flashes of good things as a rookie. He had one 10-reception game and topped the 50-yard mark four times. Amaro was inconsistent in a passing game that struggled much of the year. He‚??ll be a big part of the passing game this year, though, and should be able to produce better in what should be a better passing attack. The passing attack can‚??t be any worse than last year, right? Amaro is a big-play tight end that should be a top red-zone target for the Jets. Expect his numbers to take a nice jump forward his second season in the league.
FANTASY DUD
Stevan Ridley might be in for quite a surprise this season. He moves from one of the best offenses in the league to maybe the worst. He moves to a run-heavy scheme that doesn‚??t have a history of throwing a ton of passes to the running back. This isn‚??t a great ingredient for Ridley to have similar success to past seasons. He‚??ll get some weekly touches but don‚??t expect similar numbers to his last few seasons with the Patriots, especially since he has some quality backs to compete with for playing time.

Jul 29, 06:23 PM New York Jets OG Willie Colon (knee) and DL Kevin Vickerson (hamstring) were placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 29.
Jul 29, 09:33 AM New York Jets TE Jace Amaro will be used as an H-back, which might give him a bigger role in the offense than he had last season. Amaro struggled with drops last year.
Jul 28, 08:03 PM New York Jets QB Geno Smith could be benched if he struggles early in the season, according to head coach Todd Bowles Tuesday, July 28. 'If you feel that his position or any other position is hurting the team, as a head coach, it's up to you to do something about it,' Bowles said about Smith. 'It's not a year-long thing for anybody. You earn your keep by the week. You earn your keep by the day. ? If somebody is not doing their job, it's up to me to rectify the situation,' said Bowles.

Fantasy Impact: Not a surprise. Smith is going to be on a short leash this season.
Jul 28, 12:53 PM New York Jets CB Dee Milliner (Achilles') could begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. The Jets received trade inquiries on him this offseason, but they're holding onto him for now.
Jul 28, 08:53 AM New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall tweeted that he was in Jamaica for his sister's wedding, and he was worried the second-hand marijuana smoke could force him to fail a drug test. It's unclear how serious he was, but he can't be suspended for his first positive marijuana test under the league's substances of abuse policy.
Jul 22, 01:52 PM New York Jets TE Jace Amaro was targeted only nine times in the red zone last season. Amaro could be used more often in the red zone under offensive coordinator Chan Gailey.
Jul 18, 06:02 PM Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery has been working out with former teammate and now New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall. The two remain close friends and have been working out at Fit Speed Athletic Performance in Chicago.
Jul 17, 03:32 PM New York Jets RB Chris Ivory was given fewer carries last year to limit the chances of getting injured. The Jets have a new coaching staff this year, however, and Ivory has been used more this offseason, particularly in the passing game.
Jul 17, 08:52 AM New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall posted on his Twitter page that the Jets are his last team.
Jul 16, 12:22 PM New York Jets RB Chris Ivory lined up at wide receiver at times this offseason when the team worked out of a spread formation.
Jul 16, 08:52 AM New York Jets RB Chris Ivory's workload was limited by the former Jets coaching staff because they were worried about him getting injured. Ivory has also struggled in pass blocking.
Jul 04, 09:13 PM New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he doesn't feel any pressure heading into training camp. 'I feel like we have a lot of room for improvement, but I love the way we're working and competing,' Smith said. 'To have guys around me that are so, so good, it takes all the pressure off of me.'
