|New York Jets |
The Jets are an interesting team to watch with Tim Tebow now on board. This could turn into a circus if Mark Sanchez starts struggling or Tebow plays well when given his chances during the games. We aren't sure if the Jets are prepared for all this. They were a little mentally weak last season when adversity hit. Even with that said, the talent is there for the Jets to at least make the playoffs. We don't think they are good enough to advance very far, though.
Shonn Greene, RB. Is this the year Greene finally has that huge season? Well, we think it is a good possibility. The Jets are going to be a lot more run heavy this year and Greene seems a good fit for the new scheme they are running. It wouldn't surprise to see Greene get 1,000 yards and double-digit scores. Just remember that he'll get very few receptions and his over total yardage numbers won't be as good as some of the top backs. This is a make or break year for Greene, so he has a lot to prove to the Jets.
Mark Sanchez, QB. The Jets didn't get Tim Tebow to sit him on the bench, so expect him to play even if Sanchez is starting for the Jets. While Sanchez wasn't great for the Jets last season, he was a productive fantasy player, finishing 10th in scoring at quarterback. Sanchez scored 32 total touchdowns, so his fantasy value was intriguing before Tebow came around. But with Tebow vulturing yards and touchdowns, Sanchez's value takes a big hit this season. He could still have some big touchdown games on occasion but he'll be a big risk for fantasy teams.

||New York Jets RB Mike Goodson will plead not guilty to all charges, with the most serious being a second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. If convicted, Goodson would face a minimum three-year prison sentence under the Graves Act. Goodson's defense is confident they will show that he was not in possession of the gun. Goodson also faces a third-degree possession of a loaded handgun and marijuana and paraphernalia charges.|
Fantasy Impact: Goodson remains in a heap of trouble and is no sure thing to keep a roster spot going forward.

||New York Jets QBs Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith are expected to compete for the starting quarterback job this offseason, but the quarterback competition could be settled well before the team even heads to training camp in July. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg wants one of the two QBs to separate himself from the other, and if that happens this week, the team isn't against naming their starter early. 'Common sense tells you that you hope it's quick, but this is going to be a full blown competition. Period,' Mornhinweg said. Sanchez, because of his experience, has the advantage to take control of the early competition. Smith, who spent much of his college days in shotgun, is spending a ton of time taking snaps from under center during OTAs with quarterbacks coach David Lee. Mornhinweg knows that the longer their QB competition lasts, the less time the winner will have to work with the first-team offense. The team also won't just name a starter to name a starter, they want a clear winner in the competition.|

||New York Jets RB Mike Goodson was in attendance at the team's first OTA practice Monday, May 20, but only to meet with team officials following his arrest on drug and weapons charges last week. Goodson didn't participate or watch the team's workouts, and his future with the team is uncertain. If Goodson pleads guilty or is convicted of unlawful possession of a handgun, he'll be subject to the Graves Act, which is a New Jersey law that carries a minimum of three years in jail.|
Fantasy Impact: Goodson is facing possible jail time, so it doesn't look good for him playing this year. He had a chance to start for the Jets this season but blew it with this off the field transgression.

||New York Jets RB Mike Goodson was arrested Friday, May 17, and charged with possession of marijuana under 50 grams, possession of paraphernalia, unlawful possession of a loaded handgun and possession of a hollow-point bullet. Goodson was being held on $50,000 full cash bail.|
Fantasy Impact: He could face jail time for this, which doesn't help his NFL future. He had a chance to start in New York this season but seems likely to be released from the team now.

||New York Jets OG Willie Colon said he does not think RB Mike Goodson will remain with the team after being arrested earlier this week. 'It's one of the things where it's zero-tolerance with stuff like that,' Colon said. 'It's sad. Mike could have been huge for us.'|

Fantasy Impact: We wouldn't count on anything at this point.

||New York Jets RB Joe McKnight said he is not going to give up his roster spot because the team brought in competition. "I don't care who they bring in, they're going (to have to) kill me to take my spot. You understand that now?" McKnight said in the locker room Thursday. "Just because they bring Goodson and Ivory in they already think I'm gone. They just bringing people in for competition, they ain't bringing nobody in to say, 'Joe is done.'"|
|May 16, 02:42 PM
