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.

Oct 01, 02:53 PM New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 1.

Sep 30, 08:43 AM New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) feels better than he did this time last week, according to head coach Rex Ryan.
Sep 29, 09:47 PM New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan publicly remained supportive of QB Geno Smith Monday, Sept. 29. He said he talked to the quarterback about his incident with yelling a profanity at a fan. 'Unfortunately, I made the same mistake,' Ryan said. 'Obviously, it's something I regretted when I did it, and I know Geno feels the same way.' Ryan said he is sticking with Smith, who has thrown at least one interception in 16 of his 20 career starts, despite the fact fans are clamoring for backup QB Michael Vick to get a chance.
Sep 29, 08:13 PM New York Jets WR David Nelson (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 4, and the signing of WR Chris Owusu could be an indication Nelson's injury is significant. Head coach Rex Ryan hinted as much in his press conference Monday, Sept. 29.
Sep 29, 05:23 PM New York Jets CB Dee Milliner (quadriceps) could return this week, according to head coach Rex Ryan, who said he's confident Milliner will be able to play Week 5.
Sep 29, 05:03 PM New York Jets WR David Nelson (ankle) has a sprained ankle. His status for Week 5 was undisclosed.
Sep 29, 05:03 PM New York Jets FB Tommy Bohanon (collarbone) has a fractured collarbone, according to head coach Rex Ryan.
Sep 29, 02:53 PM The New York Jets signed WR T.J. Graham and released WR Jalen Saunders Monday, Sept. 29.
Sep 29, 01:53 PM New York Jets QB Geno Smith will remain the team's starting quarterback despite another shaky performance in a Week 4 loss to the Detroit Lions. 'I'm confident in Geno. If Geno's healthy, then Geno Smith will start,' head coach Rex Ryan said after the game. 'I'm not gonna replace him. I feel good about Geno, and again, I think he's gonna get it turned. He's a tough, resilient young man, and I think we're gonna win.'
Sep 29, 10:53 AM New York Jets RB Chris Ivory played 37 snaps (58% of the offense) in Week 4. RBs Chris Johnson and Bilal Powell only played on 18 and 11 snaps, respectively.

Fantasy Impact: Ivory is the top back to own in New York right now. He is getting more and more work.
Sep 28, 05:42 PM New York Jets WR David Nelson (ankle) left the Week 4 game against the Detroit Lions due to an ankle injury and he was unable to return.
Sep 28, 05:42 PM New York Jets SS Calvin Pryor (thigh) left the Week4 game against the Detroit Lions due to a thigh injury and he was unable to return.
