Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Jets were a mess last season and didn't do a whole lot to get better this offseason. The quarterback situation remains a mess, they lack a true No. 1 back and playmakers in the passing game, and traded their top cornerback. This all adds up to another disappointing season for the Jets. We expect a similar season to last year, going around 6-10 and missing the playoffs.

FANTASY BREAKOUT

Chris Ivory, RB. Ivory is a bit of a one-dimensional runner but he is the best fit for the Jets' offense right now. He should be the starter in New York and get plenty of work in their run-first offense. He has 1,000-yard potential and could near double-digit scores. He won't be a huge weekly threat for big numbers but should be pretty consistent, churning out the yards. He could end up a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams.

FANTASY DUD

Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith. Don't bother with either of these quarterbacks. Neither is going to be a help for fantasy teams. The Jets lack weapons in the passing game and neither of these guys have much upside for the coming season. Whoever wins the job could have a few big games along the way but expect more bad than good in terms of fantasy production. Let someone else deal with this mess come draft day.

Team Notes

Apr 17, 11:42 PM The New York Jets have exercised the fifth-year option in DE Muhammad Wilkerson's contract.
Apr 17, 08:52 PM New York Jets RB Chris Johnson said he is fine with sharing carries with other running backs this upcoming season if it helps the team win games.
Apr 17, 08:52 PM New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) said he expects to receive medical clearance to resume football activities in the near future. He underwent knee surgery in January but expects to be fully healthy for training camp.
Apr 17, 01:42 PM New York Jets RB Chris Johnson said a report that he has arthritis in his knee is not true. Johnson said he has no arthritis in his knee.
Apr 16, 09:53 PM Updating a previous report, the deal for New York Jets RB Chris Johnson includes $3 million in guaranteed money in the form of a signing bonus, and $1 million in salary. The team also holds an option for the 2015 season.
Apr 16, 04:43 PM The New York Jets signed RB Chris Johnson to a two-year deal worth $8 million, with another $1 million in incentives available.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson lands in a spot that he might get his most chances, so he still has some value for fantasy teams. He should get his touches with the Jets.
Apr 16, 03:53 PM The New York Jets will use RBs Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory as a tandem this upcoming season and have them split carries. RB Bilal Powell will be the team's No. 3 running back.
Apr 16, 12:03 AM The New York Jets are sticking to their budget/value system. While they want free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans), they will not 'overpay' for him. The depressed running back market suggests Johnson will fetch $3-4 million per year maximum.
Apr 15, 07:53 PM Free-agent RB Chris Johnson's (Titans) visit with the New York Jets reportedly went well Tuesday, April 15, but he left without a deal. Other teams are involved with him, too.
Apr 15, 12:23 PM The Buffalo Bills have shown some interest in signing free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans), according to sources.

Fantasy Impact: We aren't sure how he would fit with the Bills but you never know.
Apr 15, 09:33 AM The New York Jets are visiting with free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans) Tuesday, April 15.

Fantasy Impact: This might be his best bet to earn a lot of playing time. We'll see how it shakes out.
Apr 10, 04:52 PM New York Jets LB Garrett McIntyre's one-year deal is worth $645,000 or the veteran's minimum.
Apr 09, 10:23 PM Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans) will not be engaging in private tryouts for anyone, according to a league source. The thinking is that he has generated six years of game film, and he's a proven commodity.
Apr 09, 04:43 PM The New York Jets re-signed LB Garrett McIntyre Wednesday, April 9. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Apr 09, 02:13 PM The Denver Post's Mike Klis speculates the Denver Broncos aren't a fit for free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans). Klis doesn't think Johnson will accept a No. 2 role, and Denver probably won't give him the money he'll demand.
Apr 08, 11:33 PM The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to be serious players for free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans), as their secondary is a more pressing concern than running back.
