Jets to sign QB Trevor Siemian

Field Level Media

The New York Jets are signing quarterback Trevor Siemian to a contract, ESPN reported on Tuesday.

The move, pending a physical, will begin Siemian's second stint with the Jets. Siemian previously played with the team in 2019.

Siemian, 31, joins Tim Boyle as backups behind Zach Wilson, who was thurst into the starting role after offseason acquisition Aaron Rodgers was injured during New York's season-opening win over the Buffalo Bills on Sept. 11.

Wilson, however, has completed just 52.4 percent of his passes for 467 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions for the Jets (1-2).

Siemian signed a one-year contract with the Cincinnati Bengals in May but didn't make the roster.

He appeared in two games for the Chicago Bears in 2022, going 0-1 as the starter in place of Justin Fields. Siemian threw for 184 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Siemian is 13-17 as a starter for the Denver Broncos, Jets, New Orleans Saints and Bears.

Waiver Wire Adds: Week 4

Player Notes
Jamael Dean Sep 26 12:56pm ET
Jamael Dean

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Jamel Dean (shoulder) left Monday night's game in the third quarter due to a shoulder injury and has officially been ruled as questionable to return. Before leaving, he registered three solo tackles. Despite the two interceptions that the Tampa Bay defense has forced, Jalen Hurts and the Eagles have been able to pass for over 230 yards so far. Dean is one of the starting corners on this defense which means Christian Izien will be next up to see some opportunities in his absence.

D'Andre Swift Sep 26 12:56pm ET
D'Andre Swift

Dynasty | Eagles running back D'Andre Swift had 130 rushing yards in the Eagles easy win against Tampa Bay. Dynasty Analysis: He added one catch for eight yards. It was the second straight big game for Swift, who now has over 300 rushing yards over the past two weeks. Kenneth Gainwell had just two fewer carries (14) than Swift but averaged five fewer yards per carry and looked like the clear #2 back tonight. This is a big development in dynasty leagues as Swift finally looks like a potential RB1 for the first time in 2023.

Raheem Mostert

The Miami Dolphins offense averaged 30 points and 462.5 yards of offense per game in two contests on the road to begin the year before their home opener on Sunday against the Denver Broncos in which they put up 70 points and 726 yards of offense. According to NextGen Stats, Dolphins players are now responsible for the five-fastest individual speeds recorded on a given play so far this season, with three by wide receiver Tyreek Hill and one apiece from rookie running back De'Von Achane and RB Raheem Mostert. Achane and Mostert accounted for four touchdowns apiece in the thumping of the Broncos in Week 3, and Achane is going to be the No. 1 waiver priority in fantasy leagues this week.

Jalen Hurts

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (illness) confirmed that he played the Monday night win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers through flu-like symptoms. "Just us executing," Hurts said, describing what it took to gut it out. "It's not the first time I've dealt with this or had to play with something like this. And it always happens on Monday night for whatever reason." Despite Hurts and several other members of the team being under the weather, the Eagles offense put up 472 yards, led by running back D'Andre Swift (130 rushing yards) and receiver A.J. Brown (nine catches for 131 yards). Hurts had an up-and-down performance, throwing and rushing for a touchdown while also throwing a couple of interceptions.

Trevor Lawrence Sep 26 11:10am ET
Trevor Lawrence

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson said after the disappointing Week 3 loss to the Houston Texans that reports of him taking over as the play-caller were "false." Through three weeks, the Jaguars have scored more than two touchdowns in just one game, including a six-quarter stretch between Weeks 2 and 3 where they didn't score a single touchdown. The good news is Jacksonville found success in the second half against Houston after failing to score a single point in the first half due to two miscues on the field-goal unit and going 1-for-6 on third downs. As a result of the offense's woes in the first three weeks, quarterback Trevor Lawrence ranks as the QB20 in fantasy heading into a Week 4 meeting with the Atlanta Falcons in London this Sunday.

Tyler Higbee

Although the Los Angeles Rams ended up falling short by a score of 19-16 in the Monday night loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, tight end Tyler Higbee had his best game of the young season in Week 3. Higbee caught all five of his targets for a season-high 71 yards. His five receptions were tied for the team lead with rookie wideout Puka Nacua, and his 71 receiving yards came one yard shy of the team lead on the night. Through three weeks, the 30-year-old has caught 11 of his 15 targets for 132 yards and no touchdowns, ranking him as the TE10 in fantasy so far in half-point PPR scoring. Higbee will have at least one more week to soak up more targets against the Indianapolis Colts before top wideout Cooper Kupp (hamstring) is eligible to return from Injured Reserve.

Puka Nacua Sep 26 4:40am ET
Puka Nacua

Wide receiver Puka Nacua (oblique) caught five passes for 72 yards in the Los Angeles Rams' Week 3 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Nacua, who had 35 targets in the first two games of his career, settled for a more modest seven on Monday night. His longest gain came late in the fourth quarter when Matthew Stafford found the receiver open near the five-yard line for a 37-yard reception. A better throw from Stafford might have resulted in Nacua's first touchdown, but instead of making the catch on the run he had to go to the ground to make the play and was easily touched down by a defender at the three-yard line. Nacua is a must-start in Week 4 when the Rams face the Indianapolis Colts, who have allowed two 100-yard games and four total touchdowns to opposing wide receivers this season.

Kyren Williams Sep 26 4:10am ET
Kyren Williams

Los Angeles Rams running back Kyren Williams had a disappointing showing against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3. In the Rams' first game since Cam Akers was traded to the Vikings, Williams had only 10 rushing attempts for 38 yards. The second-year back was targeted seven times in the passing game but came away with just two catches for another 27 yards. Sean McVay gave his running back just two red zone rushing attempts on Monday night, ran 13 running plays in the entire game, and perplexed fans with his insistence on utilizing the pass to attempt short-yardage first-down conversions on multiple occasions. In Week 4, the Rams take on the Indianapolis Colts who have limited opposing running backs to 68 yards per game and have not allowed a touchdown to the position since Week 1. Still, with Williams operating as a three-down back he should be in starting lineups in Week 4.

Tutu Atwell Sep 26 3:40am ET
Tutu Atwell

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Tutu Atwell caught five of his nine targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Monday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The third-year player added 22 more yards on the ground on a reverse which was initially ruled a touchdown until the video review showed that he was out of bounds at the Bengals' two-yard line. He finally connected with quarterback Matthew Stafford for a score with little more than a minute remaining in the game. Atwell is averaging almost nine targets per game and is thriving in the shadow of the rookie phenom Puka Nacua. In Week 4, the Rams play the Indianapolis Colts, who allowed a touchdown to two different wide receivers in each of their first two games this season. Atwell can put up WR3 numbers against a generous opponent and should be started in Week 4.

Matthew Stafford Sep 26 3:20am ET
Matthew Stafford

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford opened the 2023 season with back-to-back 300-yard games, but talk of the 15-year veteran's rejuvenation stalled out in Week 3. In Monday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, he was intercepted twice and sacked four times while going 18-for-33 for 269 yards and one touchdown. Stafford did lead the Rams into the red zone four times and got within 30 yards of the goal line twice more, but could not get the Rams across the goal line until their final possession of the game. Monday's score was just his second touchdown in 126 total pass attempts this season, the second-worst rate in the league after Ryan Tannehill. Even though Stafford has another favorable matchup against the Colts in Week 4, by now he can't be trusted to finish any higher than as a QB2.

Tyler Boyd Sep 26 1:20am ET
Tyler Boyd

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught 5-of-9 targets for 39 yards in Monday's 19-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The 28-year-old slot man saw a busy first half amidst Cincinnati's conservative, dink-and-dunk approach, bringing in four of his six targets for 29 yards. Boyd later pulled in a short 10-yard reception in the fourth quarter but was on the wrong end of a spectacular play later in the series made by Ahkello Witherspoon, who ripped a pass away from Boyd for a pick. Boyd has 17 targets across the past two games but may find himself as the odd man out more often than not this year. The veteran has strong contingency upside if Ja'Marr Chase or Tee Higgins were to ever miss time, but Boyd is going to need the Bengals offense to start clicking if he wants to return WR3 value in full-PPR leagues.

Kyren Williams

Dynasty | Rams running back Kyren Williams posted 38 rushing yards, two catches and 27 receiving yards in a MNF loss to the Bengals. Dynasty Analysis: Ugh. Williams came back to earth in a big way in this one. While the trade of Cam Akers was huge for his dynasty value, this game is going to stop a lot of the momentum he carried into the week. Williams will now take a sub 4.0 yards per carry into a huge game against the Colts next week. His past and future performance will be one of the biggest dynasty storylines of the week as dynasty managers attempt to truly assess his true dynasty value.

Tee Higgins

Dynasty | Bengals receiver Tee Higgins posted two catches for 21 yards in the Bengals win against the Rams. Dynasty Analysis: Higgins has had a weird season to say the least. He had an 8/89/2 game last week but has just these two catches for 21 yards combined in his other two games after his week one shutout. He's also now caught just ten passes on 28 targets on the season. To make matters worse, Higgins left this game early. While the Bengals are saying he just experienced cramps, dynasty managers have to be concerned about the lack of consistency they've seen from an elite playmaker. Higgins will get the benefit of the doubt here but dynasty eyebrows are clearly being raised here.

Joe Mixon

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon took 19 carries for 65 yards with one catch for an additional five yards in Monday's 19-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The ground game fell victim to a pass-centric Bengals first half that saw 33 Joe Burrow dropbacks to seven Mixon rush attempts, but that ratio evened out a bit in the second half with Cincinnati's defense disrupting the Rams all night. Mixon made a nice cut on a 14-yard dash to the end zone to top off a 10-play scoring drive out of the half to ignite the crowd and ease the pressing Bengals offense for the moment. The 27-year-old has produced solid, yet unspectacular returns in each of campaign's initial three games, amassing at least 70 total yards in each. Mixon may find running room hard to come by on the road in Week 4 against the Tennessee Titans, who have sold out to plug the trenches at the expense of a sieve-like secondary.

Tee Higgins Sep 26 12:50am ET
Tee Higgins

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins caught 2-of-8 targets for 21 yards in Monday's 19-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The 24-year-old didn't make his first catch until the middle of the second quarter on a third-and-long checkdown, and he dropped a pass on the ensuing series. Higgins proceeded to push off on Ahkello Witherspoon to set back a drive following a Bengals takeaway that put them in great field position. He chipped in a 13-yard play on Cincinnati's only touchdown drive of the game but committed another drop in the third quarter, which stalled what amounted into a field-goal drive. Higgins had to make a brief exit with cramps to rub salt in the wound but returned at the start of the fourth. His uneven start to the year may have fantasy managers questioning their trust in him, but Higgins nonetheless belongs on the WR1/2 fringe in Week 4's cushy draw with the Tennessee Titans.

Ja'Marr Chase

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase caught 12-of-15 targets for 141 yards in Monday's close 19-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The two-time Pro Bowler shined as one of the offense's lone bright spots on the evening. Chase made a few beautiful toe-dragging catches along the sideline in the second quarter, but they didn't ultimately provide a spark for Cincinnati's dormant first-half offense. He found some open space for a 43-yard catch-and-run to catalyze an eventual third-quarter scoring drive. Chase had more catches through Monday's first three quarters (11) than he had over his first two games collectively (10), and the 23-year-old may have emphatically slammed shut his fantasy buy-low window on Monday. Chase looks in Week 4 to be the latest WR1 to victimize a leaky Tennessee Titans secondary, who have consistently dispensed 100-yard receiving days in the opening three weeks.
