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.

Mar 24, 01:52 PM New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall could be in line for a breakout season in 2015, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said he thinks Marshall remains a 'top-flight receiver.' 'He understands the game. He's a student of the game. He understands when he has small guys on him. He can get vertical when he needs to get vertical. He's a sharp route runner. He has great hands. He knows how to block. He brings a work ethic and he brings a fire to us that we need on the other side of the ball,' Bowles said.
Mar 24, 01:32 PM Free-agent DE Stephen Bowen (Redskins) is signing an undisclosed deal with the New York Jets Tuesday, March 24.
Mar 24, 01:22 PM New York Jets QB Geno Smith will be the starting quarterback ahead of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick entering training camp this summer, according to new head coach Todd Bowles. 'You can't have equal first-team reps with a quarterback,' Bowles said. 'Geno will start out taking them, but that doesn't mean that Ryan can't take his spot. If Ryan's playing better and performing better?' Bowles continues to say that it's too early to judge Smith off his tape alone.
