2014 DRAFT GUIDE

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.

Team Notes

Feb 25, 02:13 PM New York Jets QB Geno Smith may not have big competition for the starting quarterback job, because the team is not committed to selecting a quarterback with the sixth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Jets are committed to make Smith a successful starting quarterback.
Feb 25, 02:03 AM The Miami Dolphins are expected to pursue free-agent LB David Harris (Jets), as team management has told multiple people they want to add a starting linebacker. Dolphins president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum drafted Harris out of Michigan in 2007.
Feb 24, 03:13 PM New York Jets WR Percy Harvin will draw interest from the New England Patriots if he is released by the Jets this offseason. Harvin is unlikely to return to the Jets unless he takes less than the $10.5 million he's owed next season. New England will be one of several teams interested in Harvin if he is let go. The Patriots tried trading for Harvin before he was traded to the Jets last year.
Feb 22, 11:22 PM Updating previous report, the Atlanta Falcons are expected to pursue New York Jets impending free-agent LB David Harris if he hits the market. Head coach Dan Quinn was the defensive line coach for the Jets during Harris' first two seasons.
Feb 20, 04:52 PM New York Jets impending free-agent LB David Harris is expected to receive interest from the Chicago Bears if he hits the free-agent market, according to a source.
Feb 20, 04:52 PM New York Jets impending free-agent LB David Harris is expected to receive interest from the Atlanta Falcons if he hits the free-agent market, according to a source.
Feb 19, 03:13 AM Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan is excited about QB EJ Manuel, as he told reporters Manuel 'has some potential', but the club is still looking for a long-term signal caller.
Feb 18, 11:23 PM New York Jets QB Geno Smith might soon have company despite the fact general manager Mike Maccagnan said the team is 'committed' to trying to turn Smith into a winning quarterback. The team met with free-agent QB Josh McCown (Buccaneers) Wednesday, Feb. 18.
Feb 18, 11:23 PM Updating a previous report, New York Jets CB Dee Milliner (Achilles') might not be ready until early summer. The team sounds as if they will use the worst-case scenario as a guide as they venture into free agency. They're not counting on Milliner to be 100 percent. When asked, both head coach Todd Bowles and general manager Mike Maccagnan identified cornerback as one of the team's most pressing needs.
Feb 18, 03:03 PM Impending free-agent LB David Harris would like to be re-signed by the New York Jets this offseason, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Feb 18, 03:03 PM New York Jets CB Dee Milliner's (Achilles') status for the spring practices is still up in the air at this point, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said it is too early tell if Milliner will be ready by the spring.
Feb 16, 06:33 PM Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) said he expected to have a bigger role with the New York Jets this past season but saw his playing time decrease as the season went on. Johnson said he sat down with former head coach Rex Ryan to talk about his role with the team but was never given the chance to show his talent.
Feb 14, 03:12 PM New York Jets RB Chris Johnson's option not being exercised will save the team $3.5 million in salary cap space, adding to the $45-50 million they have already.
Feb 14, 02:42 PM New York Jets RB Chris Johnson's option will not be exercised, as expected. Johnson will become a free agent.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson should get a shot with some team but likely in a platoon role.
Feb 14, 10:22 AM New York Jets impending free-agent QB Michael Vick will be allowed to test the free-agent market this offseason, according to a source. The Jets could consider re-signing Vick at some point this offseason.
Feb 14, 09:22 AM New York Jets impending free-agent LB David Harris could be an option for the Buffalo Bills if he hits the free-agent market since head coach Rex Ryan coached him when he was with the Jets.
