Outlook

The Jets improved some offensively this offseason but still don‚??t have that franchise quarterback on the roster, which is a concern. Until that position gets figured out, the Jets are going to have a hard time making the playoffs. They‚??ll be in most games because of a great defense but an inept offense will cost them plenty of games. Expect the Jets to be around the .500 mark this season. New York needs to find that franchise quarterback to lead the team for years to come.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Tight end Jace Amaro should some flashes of good things as a rookie. He had one 10-reception game and topped the 50-yard mark four times. Amaro was inconsistent in a passing game that struggled much of the year. He‚??ll be a big part of the passing game this year, though, and should be able to produce better in what should be a better passing attack. The passing attack can‚??t be any worse than last year, right? Amaro is a big-play tight end that should be a top red-zone target for the Jets. Expect his numbers to take a nice jump forward his second season in the league.
FANTASY DUD
Stevan Ridley might be in for quite a surprise this season. He moves from one of the best offenses in the league to maybe the worst. He moves to a run-heavy scheme that doesn‚??t have a history of throwing a ton of passes to the running back. This isn‚??t a great ingredient for Ridley to have similar success to past seasons. He‚??ll get some weekly touches but don‚??t expect similar numbers to his last few seasons with the Patriots, especially since he has some quality backs to compete with for playing time.

Team Notes

May 05, 07:53 PM New York Jets WR Devin Smith (knee) may not be ready for the start of the regular season as he continues to recover from anterior cruciate ligament surgery.
May 03, 07:23 PM New York Jets QBs Geno Smith, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, and possibly free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) could all be on New York's roster when the 2016 regular season commences. General manager Mike Maccagnan said if it's in the best interest of the team then they will keep four quarterbacks. 'It's been done before,' Maccagnan said. 'To me, it's a position where you have to take some time to really invest, grow and develop players.'

May 03, 04:43 PM New York Jets QB Geno Smith could start for the Jets in 2016 if free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is not re-signed. That prospect has general manager Mike Maccagnan excited. 'Right now, Geno has been a starter for us, and actually played quite well prior to getting hurt last year, and was doing a good job in the offseason,' Maccagnan said. 'So we're kind of excited to see what Geno can do, coming back. And we feel good about that.'

Fantasy Impact: We aren't sure why anyone would be excited with Smith starting.
May 02, 05:53 PM New York Jets CB Dee Milliner's fifth-year option was declined Monday, May 2, and general manager Mike Maccagnan said it was primarily based on Milliner's injury history. If Milliner plays well in 2016, though, Maccagnan said both sides can try to negotiate a contract following the season.
May 02, 12:53 PM Updating a previous report, New York Jets CB Dee Milliner did not have his fifth-year option picked up by the Jets Monday, May 2. He will become a free agent after the 2016 season. Milliner missed 27 of 48 games due to surgeries on his Achilles' and wrist.
May 02, 10:53 AM New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson had his fifth-year option exercised Monday, May 2.
Apr 30, 10:43 AM New York Jets QB Geno Smith will be the starting quarterback when offseason workouts begin, but the team is still looking to re-sign free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Apr 29, 09:33 PM The last time free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets had any meaningful talks was 'weeks ago,' according to one source.
Apr 29, 09:03 PM New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg is expected to sit and grow in his first season in the NFL. If free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is re-signed, it could very well only be a one-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Apr 28, 04:33 PM Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has told people he would rather not play football this season than play for the New York Jets under their latest contract offer.
Apr 27, 12:43 PM New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson is unlikely to be traded after the team fielded calls and experienced little action.
Apr 24, 03:13 PM New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (wrist) had pins removed from his surgically repaired wrist last week. He still has two months of rehabilitation, however, after having a torn ligament repaired March 17. Revis will miss offseason practices, but he's still on schedule for the start of the regular season.
Apr 22, 02:43 PM New York Jets OT Ryan Clady (knee) has been cleared to participate after offseason knee surgery, according to general manager Mike Maccagnan. Clady is likely to be used cautiously this offseason, but there are no concerns.
