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.
