New York Jets Player Notes
For The Last 365 Days
 
Michael Vick, QB11/25/2014 5:12:00 PM
Description: Jets coach Rex Ryan has not decided who will start at quarterback for Week 13.
Insight: Vick was absymal on Monday, but Ryan seems to be leaning towards sticking with him. We think Vick will get the nod, but cannot guarantee anything.
Eric Decker, WR11/24/2014 10:03:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker had four catches for 63 yards on Monday.
Insight: Decker is a victim of poor quarterback play, is really a WR3, at best.
Chris Johnson, RB11/24/2014 10:01:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Johnson led the team the team in rushing on Monday.
Insight: He had seven carries for 40 yards and three catches for 22 yards. Chris Ivory chipped in seven carries for 31 yards and thee catches for seven yards. Neither running back is a great option.
Geno Smith, QB11/24/2014 9:59:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith came in during the second half and through for 89 yards.
Insight: He was 10-of-12, and should remain the starter for the rest of the season.
Jace Amaro, TE11/24/2014 9:51:00 PM
Description: Jets tight end Jace Amaro left Monday's game with a head injury.
Insight: He will not have to go through the league's concussion protocol.
Michael Vick, QB11/24/2014 9:34:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick was benched during the third quarter of Monday's game.
Insight: He was pulled after throwing an interception in the third quarter, and threw for only 76 yards before that. Geno Smith took over, and should remain the starter moving forward.
Muhammad Wilkerson, DL11/24/2014 8:59:00 PM
Description: Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson left Monday's game with a toe injury.
Insight: The injury happened in the first half, and he is questionable to return.
Eric Decker, WR11/20/2014 12:09:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker told the New York Post he's finally 100 percent over his hamstring injury.
Insight: Great news, but heading to what should be less-than-ideal (read bad) weather conditions we will still worry about Decker.
Jace Amaro, TE11/9/2014 7:15:00 PM
Description: Jets tight end Jace Amaro salvaged his day with a touchdown.
Insight: He had only two receptions for six yards, but the socre will ease fantasy owners' minds.
Percy Harvin, WR11/9/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin totaled three catches for 23 yards on Sunday.
Insight: Harvin also had six carries for another 33 yards. The Jets are making it a point to get him touches, which is a good sign for fantasy owners.
Eric Decker, WR11/9/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker had just 24 yards in Week 10.
Insight: Decker had three catches on four targets, but with the Jets only throwing 18 total times, the opportunities were not there on Sunday.
Chris Ivory, RB11/9/2014 7:11:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory rushed fora team-high 51 yards Sunday versus Pittsburgh.
Insight: He did so on 14 carries, and is clearly the lead back in the Jets' backfield. Chris Johnson had seven carries for 23 yards.
Michael Vick, QB11/9/2014 7:09:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick played well in Sunday's win over the Steelers.
Insight: He was 10-of-18 for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Vick also rushed eight times for 39 yards, and became the first quarterback to rush for over 6,000 yards. Vick's big highlight came on a 67-yard touchdown pass to T.J. Graham.
Michael Vick, QB11/9/2014 12:12:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick (foot) practiced in full and is active for Sunday versus Pittsburgh.
Insight: He will start Week 10, and with six teams on a bye, Vick could be a solid "plug-in" option. With the way the Steelers are scoring, Vick will have to be aggressive to keep the Jets in the game and that makes him a viable option.
Percy Harvin, WR11/9/2014 12:10:00 PM
Description: Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin (heel) is active for Sunday against Pittsburgh.
Insight: The injury is minor, and Harvin is ready to go on Sunday against Pittsburgh, and should be considered a WR3/Flex option.
Michael Vick, QB11/5/2014 2:50:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick (foot) practiced in full on Wednesday.
Insight: He will start Week 10, and with six teams on a bye, Vick could be a solid "plug-in" option.
Percy Harvin, WR11/5/2014 2:48:00 PM
Description: Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin (heel) got in a limited session on Wednesday.
Insight: The injury is minor, and Harvin will be ready to go on Sunday against Pittsburgh, and should be considered a WR3/Flex option.
Michael Vick, QB11/3/2014 5:09:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick is dealing with a foot injury, which could impact his Week 10 status.
Insight: Coach Rex Ryan said it was "the biggest concern right now" among all of the Jets' injuries. Vick's foot was stepped on during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, and owners should continue to check on his availbility for this coming Sunday, starting after Wednesday's practice session.
Michael Vick, QB11/3/2014 10:23:00 AM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick completed 21-of-28 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown against the Chiefs on Sunday.
Insight: Vick moved the ball, and more importantly, did not turn it over. Coach Rex Ryan has already announced Vick as the Week 10 starter.
Jeff Cumberland, TE11/2/2014 6:44:00 PM
Description: No Jets tight end had a catch against the Chiefs in Week 9.
Insight: Jeff Cumberland received two targets but caught neither one. Jace Amaro did not receive a target.
Eric Decker, WR11/2/2014 6:39:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker had nine catches for 63 yards and a touchdown against the Chiefs.
Insight: Decker is a hit-or-miss receiver this season with the situation under center for New York. Decker is still the best receiving option even with Percy Harvin now on the roster, but fantasy owners have to rely on Decker finding the end zone in order for him to make a fantasy impact because he is not getting enough yards.
Percy Harvin, WR11/2/2014 6:36:00 PM
Description: Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin had a huge impact in his second game with the team.
Insight: Harvin caught 11 passes for 129 yards. Harvin also out-targeted Eric Decker 13-to-12. Decker caught the touchdown pass, but it is clear that Harvin can make a fantasy impact with the Jets.
Chris Johnson, RB11/2/2014 6:31:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Johnson led the team with 11 carries and 69 rushing yards in Week 9 against the Chiefs.
Insight: This comes as a surprise as Johnson has barely been used the last few weeks. He didn't get a ton of carries in Kansas City, but the 6.3 yards per rush certainly sticks out. That is a feat, however, Johnson will likely be unable to repeat and that's assuming he even gets the opportunity again.
Michael Vick, QB11/2/2014 6:25:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick completed 21-of-28 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown against the Chiefs on Sunday.
Insight: Vick moved the ball and more importantly, did not turn it over, so he will likely start again next week against the Steelers. He left briefly with a concussion but returned. Vick could be a decent streaming option versus a Pittsburgh defense that allows about 24 points per game.
Michael Vick, QB11/2/2014 3:48:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick, left the game with a head injury, but has returned.
Insight: Vick was being tested for a concussion, but obviously passed as teams error on the side of caution these days.
Michael Vick, QB11/2/2014 3:25:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick has left the game with a head injury
Insight: Vick is being tested for a concussion. With Geno Smith inactive, Matt Simms is the Jets new quarterback
Michael Vick, QB10/27/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick will start in Week 9 against the Chiefs according to the New York Daily News.
Insight: This is great news to anyone with the Kansas City defense or hoping to pick the Chiefs in a survivor league. Actually, it doesn't really matter if Geno Smith or Vick, Kansas City's defense is a great start next week. Vick can more the offense better than Smith, but Vick is just as turnoever prone.
Eric Decker, WR10/26/2014 5:39:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker hauled in seven passes during Sundays's loss to Buffalo.
Insight: He had only 40 yards however, but did manage 11 targets. There is no denying Decker's talent, but with him being on such a lousy team, he should be considered a WR3.
Jace Amaro, TE10/26/2014 5:38:00 PM
Description: Jets tight end Jace Amaro led the team in receing with 51 yards, on Sunday.
Insight: He had five catches on all five targets, and will be a TE2 moving forward.
Percy Harvin, WR10/26/2014 5:36:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Percy Harvin totaled seven touches in his team-debut.
Insight: He had three catches for 22 yards and four carries for 28 yards. Harvin should see more touches than he did in Seattle, but his production will continue to remain hit-or-miss.
Chris Ivory, RB10/26/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory was unable to buildoff his impressive Week 7 performance.
Insight: After 107 yards and a touchdown last week, Ivory rushed for only 43 yards on Sunday. Chris Johnson was not any better, totaling only three carries for seven yards. Ivory is clearly the lead dog in New York.
Michael Vick, QB10/26/2014 5:30:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick came in relief of a benched Geno Smith, and totaled 153 passing yards and 69 rushing yards.
Insight: Vick also threw an interception and fumbled the ball four times (lost two), as turnovers continue to haunt him. Heading into Week 9, both Smith and Vick will hav a chance to start under center.
Michael Vick, QB10/26/2014 1:43:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Michael Vick was thrusted into action Sunday, after Geno Smith was benched.
Insight: Smith threw three interceptions in the first quarter, giving Vick the opportunity to be the Jets' starting quarterback, moving forward.
Geno Smith, QB10/26/2014 1:41:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith was benched in the first quarter, in favor of Michael Vick.
Insight: Coach Rex Ryan had no choice as Smith was 2-for-8 for five yards and a dreadful three interceptions. With the Jets playoff hopes all but lost, Smith could still find himself under center, as the season progresses.
Eric Decker, WR10/26/2014 12:15:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker (hamstring) is active against the Bills.
Insight: Decker seems to be fine after dealing with the hamstring ailment for a few weeks. Start him as you normally would.
Percy Harvin, WR10/22/2014 3:04:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Percy Harvin is not expected to be a major factor for Week 8's matchup against Buffalo.
Insight: Coach Rex Ryan declared that it is "unrealistic" to expect Harvin to play 50 offensive snaps, without knowing the entire offense. He will likely handle kickoff and punt return duties, along with seeing around 20-to-25 snaps on the offensive side of the ball. Consider Harvin a WR4 until he is guarenteed more game action.
Percy Harvin, WR10/17/2014 6:01:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks have traded Percy Harvin to the Jets for a conditional pick, according to Jay Glazer. UPDATE: The coniditional pick will be in the range from a second-to-fourth-round pick, according to John Clayton.
Insight: The timing is weird, as Harvin is dealing with a thigh injury, but it is a nice pickup for the Jets nonetheless. Harvin has not produced much from a fantasy standpoint, and his value takes even more of a hit with this move to New York.
Bilal Powell, RB10/17/2014 10:01:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Bilal Powell left Thursday night's game in the second half due to a foot injury.
Insight: Powell is No. 3 on the depth chart behind Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson and has no value for fantasy owners.
Jace Amaro, TE10/17/2014 9:38:00 AM
Description: Jets rookie tight end Jace Amaro had a tough night against New England catching just three passes for 22 yards.
Insight: Like all rookies, Amaro is inconsistent and it doesn't help that he's got Geno Smith as his quarterback.
Jeff Cumberland, TE10/17/2014 9:32:00 AM
Description: Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland has taken a backseat to Jace Amaro of late, but he was the better tight end Thursday night.
Insight: Cumberland caught 3-of-4 targets for 50 yards and a touchdown. He's still not fantasy owrthy.
Eric Decker, WR10/17/2014 9:29:00 AM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker saw a team-high seven targets en route to his four-catch, 65-yard game.
Insight: Decker had Darrelle Revis on him for much of the night which is why he wasn't a great play.
Geno Smith, QB10/17/2014 9:26:00 AM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith was mistake-free while throwing for 226 yards and a touchdown in a tough loss to New England.
Insight: Smith played well, but these totals are the upper limit for fantasy owners which is why his value in minimal.
Chris Ivory, RB10/17/2014 9:24:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory reappeared after being two ugly games to post 107 yards and a score on 21 carries and catch four balls for 18 yards.
Insight: Ivory was "the guy" with Chris Johnson as an afterthought and we liked what we saw.
David Nelson, WR10/16/2014 2:17:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver David Nelson (ankle) shouldn't keep him from being the No. 3 receiver behind Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley.
Insight: That said, given how the Jets offense is playing he's probably not a good play in the rain against New England in Week 7.
Jace Amaro, TE10/16/2014 2:14:00 PM
Description: Jets rookie tight end Jace Amaro, dealing with a knee issue, should be ready to go after a full practice Tuesday.
Insight: The Jets offense is a mess, Amaro is coming off 10-catch, 68-yard one touchdown game against the Broncos in Week 6.
Greg Salas, WR10/16/2014 2:03:00 PM
Description: Jets wideout Greg Salas will miss Thursday's game against New England due to wrist and ankle injuries.
Insight: Salas has yet ro score or amass more than 60 yards or two receptions in a game, so isn't considered fantasy worthy even when healthy.
Chris Ivory, RBCold10/15/2014 8:18:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory has disappeared over the last two games.
Insight: The promise of two double-digit fantasy point days to start the season has faded and Ivory can't be started at this point in time.
Jace Amaro, TE10/13/2014 6:24:00 PM
Description: Jets rookie tight end Jace Amaro had 10 catches for 68 yards and a touchdown against the Broncos in Week 6.
Insight: The Jets offense is a mess, but Eric Decker and Jace Amaro are the only players worth owning on the unit. Decker and Amaro will give owners spotty productive just because Geno Smith cannot be counted on week-to-week.
Chris Johnson, RBCold10/13/2014 6:22:00 PM
Description: It has gotten worse and worse for Jets running back Chris Johnson.
Insight: Johnson has three carries for nine yards as the Jets gained just 31 yards rushing on 15 attempts. Chris Ivory had eight rushes for seven yards. The Jets offense is a disaster. It would be better to stay away from the entire unit.
Geno Smith, QBCold10/13/2014 6:19:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith was a little better in Week 6, throwing for 190 yards on 23-for-43 attempts, two touchdowns and one interception.
Insight: That's not saying much considering Rex Ryan pulled Smith from his Week 5 start, and Smith likely only received another chance because Michael Vick admited he wasn't prepared. Smith also gained 11 rushing yards. Hopefully, owners don't have him in leagues.
Josh Thomas, CB10/13/2014 4:24:00 PM
Description: Former Panther cornerback Josh Thomas has been signed by the New York Jets.
Insight: Thomas was signed to replace just-injured Dee Milliner in the secondary, though he'll likely be the nickle guy at first.
Dee Milliner, CB10/13/2014 4:17:00 PM
Description: Jets cornerback Dee Milliner suffered a torn right Achilles' tendon in Sunday's game against Denver,
Insight: He's already been placed on injured reserve. He's been injury prone since arriving in New York as the No. 9 pick of the 2013 draft.
Eric Decker, WR10/12/2014 6:08:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker scored a touchdown against his former team.
Insight: He had six receptions for 54 yards, on 10 targets. If Decker can stay healthy, he will be a WR3, as a result of the Jets' poor quarterback play.
Dee Milliner, CB10/12/2014 1:29:00 PM
Description: Jets cornerback Dee Milliner was forced from Sunday's game against Denver, with a non-contact injury.
Insight: It was his right leg, and appeared to be his achilles. With Milliner sidelined, Peyton Manning will look to feast even more on a less than average secondary.
Eric Decker, WR10/12/2014 12:12:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker is active for Week 6 against his old teammates the Broncos.
Insight: After sitting out Week 5, Decker has been targeting this game and will be on the field. Whether he can play the entire 60 minutes is another question as is whether he can be effective versus a top-10 passing defense.
Eric Decker, WR10/8/2014 2:56:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker returned to practice on Wednesday.
Insight: It was a limited session, but is still a positive sign. After sitting out Week 5, Decker is now on pace to start Week 6 against Denver.
Chris Johnson, RBCold10/6/2014 10:03:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Johnson was not pretty in Week 5 rushing for just 24 yards on seven carries.
Insight: Johnson and Chris Ivory are getting very similar workloads and neither can produce fantasy-worthy statistics in this RBBC situation. It doesn't help that the Jets are 30th in scoring with just 79 points, so opportunities to score are few and far between.
Chris Ivory, RB10/6/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory rushed a team-high nine times for just 44 yards.
Insight: It was better production than fellow running back Chris Johnson, but neither posted fantasy-worthy numbers in a 31-0 blowout.
Michael Vick, QBCold10/6/2014 9:59:00 AM
Description: Had Jets backup QB Michael Vick produced any points in the second half, we might have a controversy in New York.
Insight: Vick was almost as ugly as starter Geno Smith, going 8-of-19 for just 47 yards. At this point the team might as well stay with Smith to see whether the youngster will eventually develop into a starting NFL quarterback.
Geno Smith, QBCold10/6/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith was pulled from the game after a horrible first half in which he was 4-of-12 for 27 yards and an interception.
Insight: Backup Michael Vick wasn't any better, going 8-of-19 for 47 yards as the Jets were shutout 31-0. He also missed a team meeting Saturday. Things are not looking very good for the Jets offense.
Eric Decker, WR10/5/2014 3:19:00 PM
Description: After missing the last two practices this week, Jets receiver Eric Decker will sit out Week 5.
Insight: As a late afternoon start it was a gamble to play him because of the lack of options should this situation come up. It did, and hopefully you have another plan for the wideout spot.
Eric Decker, WR10/3/2014 3:52:00 PM
Description: After missing the last two practices, Jets receiver Eric Decker, can only be considered questionable, at best, for Sunday in San Diego.
Insight: Even if Decker plays at this point, fantasy owners have to question whether he can last 60 minutes. He's a late afternoon start which leaves little options so start him at your own risk.
David Nelson, WR10/2/2014 11:19:00 AM
Description: Jets receiver David Nelson's ankle sprain will keep him out of the Week 5 matchup in San Diego, according to Rich Cimini.
Insight: The Jets will have to go with Eric Decker, Jeremy Kerley and Greg Salas in three-receiver situations.
John Conner, FB9/30/2014 1:48:00 PM
Description: The Jets have signed fullback John Conner to replace injured Tommy Bohanon (collarbone).
Insight: Conner has been with the team and should be able to step right in and block for Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell. He has no fantasy value.
Tommy Bohanon, FB9/30/2014 1:47:00 PM
Description: Jets fullback Tommy Bohanon broke his collarbone in last Sunday's game against the Lions.
Insight: The Jets signed John Conner to replace him on the roster.
Chris Ivory, RB9/28/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory rushed 17 times for 84 yards and caught two passes for 16 yards in Week 4 against Detroit.
Insight: He touched the ball 11 times more than Chris Johnson, but unfortunately Johnson stole the touchdown. It remains a pretty evenly distributed backfield, at least, fantasy wise.
Calvin Pryor, FS9/28/2014 3:59:00 PM
Description: Jets strong safety Calvin Pryor left Sunday's game against the Jets with a thigh injury.
Insight: Jaiquawn Jarrett moves into the safety spot. Lions QB Matthews Stafford has been solid despie the absence of Calvin Johnson and this will help.
Eric Decker, WR9/28/2014 10:40:00 AM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker will play in three-receiver packages and third downs, according to Rich Cimini.
Insight: Decker is fully expected to be active for Week 4, but if true this puts a limit on his upside if he's not an every down player. Start him at your own risk.
Eric Decker, WR9/26/2014 8:32:00 PM
Description: Jets coach Rex Ryan admitted that receiver Eric Decker will "probably be limited bit" in Sunday's game against the Lions due to a hamstring injury according to ESPN New York.
Insight: Decker was active last week but only played 12 snaps. At this point, fantasy owners would like Decker to not play at all rather than reaagravate the injury and miss more time. Do not start Decker this week.
Eric Decker, WR9/25/2014 1:42:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker returned to practice on Thursday according to ESPN New York.
Insight: This is a good sign, but Decker will likely still be a game-time decision for Week 4. With again the chance of reaggravation, fantasy owners wouldn't mind seeing Decker sit out this week to recover for Week 5.
Eric Decker, WR9/22/2014 10:43:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker left Monday night's game against the Bears after aggravating his hamstring injury and is questionable to return.
Insight: He caught one lone pass for 19 yards. Even playing sparingly in the first half, Decker hurt his hamstring again. Don't expect him to return on Monday.
Eric Decker, WR9/22/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker (hamstring) told ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters that he will play in Monday night's game against the Bears. UPDATE: Decker is active for Monday night football
Insight: He plans to play on Monday, but it is still unclear how involved he will be. Being how much the Bears have struggled against the run the past year, the Jets will likely run the ball a lot, which keeps Decker's ceiling low.
Eric Decker, WR9/19/2014 2:48:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker (hamstring) did not practice again on Friday and is listed as questionable for Monday's game against Chicago.
Insight: The current plan is for Decker to test out his hamstring on Saturday. Head coach Rex Ryan is confident that his receiver will be ready for Monday night's game against the Bears and as the last game of the weekend doesn't leave fantasy owners many options should he not be ready to go.
Dee Milliner, CB9/19/2014 2:46:00 PM
Description: Jets cornerback Dee Milliner is questionable for Monday's game against Chicago.
Insight: Having to face Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery with backup defensive backs isn't an exciting thought for coach Rex Ryan, but there are more than a few fantasy owners who can't wait to see what the Bears receivers can do.
Eric Decker, WR9/18/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday according to ESPN New York.
Insight: The current plan is for Decker to test out his hamstring on Saturday. Head coach Rex Ryan is confident that his receiver will be ready for Monday night's game against the Bears, but Saturday will be the final word. For now, fantasy owners should go with another wide out this weekend.
Chris Johnson, RB9/16/2014 1:14:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Johnson was not pretty in Week 2 against the Packers, rushing for just 21 yard,s on 12 carries.
Insight: Johnson and Chris Ivory are getting very similar workloads, but it will limit both players' fantasy values. Ivory had the better game Sunday and still produced just 10 fantasy points.
Chris Ivory, RB9/16/2014 1:11:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory got the better of Chris Johnson in Week 2, rushing for 43 yards and a score on 13 carries.
Insight: Johnson saw 12 rushed for 21 yards. This is very close to a 50-50 situation and until one of the guys takes control, it will be difficult to start either back in fantasy lineups.
Eric Decker, WR9/15/2014 9:14:00 AM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker left Sunday's game due to a hamstring injury.
Insight: Decker's injury was the same one that he dealt with in the preseason which seems to be lingering. We should know later in the week about his status for Week 3. He was on his way to a solid game with four receptions for 63 yards and a score at the time of the injury.
Muhammad Wilkerson, DL9/13/2014 3:14:00 PM
Description: Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson (back) has been added to the injury report and is probable for Week 2 against the Jets.
Insight: Wilkerson is likely less than 100 percent, but we would be very surprised if he did not play. The Jets held the Raiders to 25 rushing yards in Week 1.
Dee Milliner, CB9/13/2014 3:03:00 PM
Description: Jets coach Rex Ryan expects cornerback Dee Milliner to play Week 2 against the Packers, but hinted the corner could be limited.
Insight: Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls will start at the two cornerback positions for the Jets. Milliner hopes to come in off the bench. Milliner has been out since Aug. 10 with a high-ankle sprain.
Dee Milliner, CB9/12/2014 3:38:00 PM
Description: Jets cornerback Dee Milliner is expected to return for Week 2 against Green Bay.
Insight: Milliner, the team's first-round pick in 2013, will be needed if the Jets hope to slow down Aaron Rodgers and the Packers passing game.
Chris Ivory, RB9/8/2014 12:53:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory played 30-of-70 offensive snaps in the Jets' Week 1 victory over the Raiders. Chris Johnson barely had more playing time with 33 offensive snaps.
Insight: Even though Johnson out-touched Ivory 18 to 10, it is really looking like the workload is going to be split right down the middle. The duo, along with Bilal Powell, averaged 7.4 yards per carry. As much as the Jets would like to give quarterback Geno Smith more responsibilities, this team is going to be a run-first offense. Both Johnson and Ivory are worth stashing away on the bench.
Daryl Richardson, RB8/30/2014 2:06:00 PM
Description: Jets waived running back Daryl Richardson Saturday.
Insight: St. Louis handed Richardson the starting job following the departure of Steven Jackson in 2013, but he lost the role to Zac Stacy. He apparently couldn't beat out Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell and is now a free agent.
Dimitri Patterson, CB8/25/2014 2:56:00 PM
Description: Jets starting corner Dimitri Patterson has been suspended indefinitely by the team.
Insight: Patterson skipped New York's game Friday night and the team is investigating. The Jets are thin in the secondary with Patterson suspended and Dee Milliner sidelined with a high-ankle sprain.
Geno Smith, QB8/23/2014 11:32:00 AM
Description: The Jets named Geno Smith the starting quarterback following the team's third preseason game Friday night against the Giants.
Insight: Smith has gone 23-of-33 (.697) for 268 yards, a touchdown and an interception this preseason and he was 9-of-14 for 137 yards and a touchdown Friday night. Smith's grasp on the starting job was never in jeopardy, especially because Michael Vick showed up to camp with a backup's mindset. Smith isn't a reliable fantasy option but his development is important to the fantasy value of Eric Decker.
Dimitri Patterson, CB8/19/2014 11:23:00 AM
Description: Jets starting corner Dimitri Patterson (calf/ankle/quadriceps) joined Dee Milliner on the sidelines for Saturday's preseason game, but expects to be ready for the season opener versus Oakland.
Insight: It would be extremely tough for the Jets defense if they were missing both their starting cornerbacks ... although maybe not against the Raiders. They had better be ready by Week 2 in Green Bay or Aaron Rodgers & Co. will have a field day.
Chris Johnson, RB8/17/2014 1:23:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Johnson looked healthy and ran well in the second preseason game.
Insight: Chris Johnson will probably lead the backfield in touches, but Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell will remain involved. We're still waiting to see CJ2K get involved in the passing game (four receptions in two games) because we know he has the ability to take screen passes a long way.
Eric Decker, WR8/16/2014 10:17:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker missed Saturday's preseason game with a quad injury.
Insight: Decker has been nagged by minor injuries throughout camp and played 11 snaps in the preseason opener. He's missing out on valuable reps with Jets quarterback Geno Smith.
Dee Milliner, CB8/11/2014 11:21:00 AM
Description: Jets cornerback Dee Milliner left practice with a high ankle sprain and could miss 3-4 weeks, according to Ryan Wilson of CBSSports.com.
Insight: Milliner, the team's first-round pick in 2013, should now be considered questionable for opening day. The Jets appear to be short-handed in the defensive backfield due to multiple injuries.
Chris Ivory, RB8/10/2014 1:48:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory has a rib cartilage injury and is uncertain to play in the second preseason game. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPN New York
Insight: Ivory, who has always been injury-prone, left the preseason opener with the rib injury. Chris Johnson's best chance to return RB2 numbers is Ivory going down. Johnson scored a one-yard touchdown after Ivory left in the first preseason game.
Shaq Evans, WR8/8/2014 9:42:00 AM
Description: Coach Rex Ryan said rookie wide receiver Shaq Evans suffered a significant shoulder injury in Thursday's preseason game.
Insight: Evans had looked pretty good in training camp, but it sounds as if this may be season ending.
Chris Ivory, RB8/8/2014 9:32:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory injured a rib in Thursday's preseason opener.
Insight: Chris Johnson ended up scoring from a yard out which would normally be Ivory time. It's early, but Ivory's history of injuries makes this a concern. Update: X-rays were taken and coach Rex Ryan said he "would be fine."
Chris Ivory, RB8/7/2014 8:34:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory injured a rib in Thursday's preseaosn opener.
Insight: Chris Johnson ended up scoring from a yard out which would normally be Ivory time. It's early, but Ivory's history of injuries makes this concerning.
Chris Johnson, RB8/5/2014 8:57:00 PM
Description: Jets coach Rex Ryan said that he thinks the team will use a "committee approach" at running back this season, according to Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News.
Insight: Chris Johnson will probably lead the backfield in touches, but Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell will remain involved and Ivory will likely see goal-line carries. Johnson is a flex play at best in 10-team leagues.
Eric Decker, WR8/5/2014 8:52:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker (foot, hamstring) has been cleared for the preseason opener, according to the Bergen Record.
Insight: Decker has put together two straight seasons with 85+ catches, 1,000+ yards and 10+ touchdowns with the Denver Broncos. He has a good shot to see more than the 137 targets he drew last season, but he's going to see a major dropoff in production with Geno Smith as his quarterback instead of Peyton Manning.
Jermaine Cunningham, LB8/3/2014 3:04:00 PM
Description: Jets linebacker Jermaine Cunningham is likely out for the year after tearing an Achilles tendon in Saturday's practice, according to Rich Cimini.
Insight: Cunningham was contributing in a couple of defensive packages, but the Jets are deep at the position and can likely overcome the injury.
Geno Smith, QB 7/31/2014 9:26:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith took all 16 of the first-team reps Thursday, according to the New York Post.
Insight: Michael Vick was relegated to the second team. Smith had been getting about 75 percent of the first-team snaps previously and is the favorite to start in Week 1. Smith was very inconsistent as a rookie, racking up 17 or more fantasy points six times but seven fantasy points or less seven times.
Jace Amaro, TE7/30/2014 5:57:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN.com, Jets rookie tight end Jace Amaro had a rough day at practice on Wednesday.
Insight: Amaro ran the wrong route and got an earful from OC Marty Mornhinweg and he was razzed by a defensive player after dropping a pass. He's struggled learning the X's and O's of New York's offense so far after playing in a basic offense at Texas Tech. Jets tight ends combined to catch 62 passes for 849 yards and six of New York's 13 passing touchdowns last season so Amaro is a sleeper, but he'll need to show improvement.
Chris Ivory, RB7/29/2014 11:40:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory was confirmed as the team's goal line back, according to RBs coach Anthony Lynn.
Insight: Chris Johnson is the No. 1, but this will hurt his fantasy value. Ivory is a clear No. 2 and goal line back ... when healthy. The Jets also have Bilal Powell and Daryl Richardson in the backfield, but they don't figure to see much time, barring injury.
Jace Amaro, TE7/27/2014 7:47:00 PM
Description: Jets rookie tight end Jace Amaro hurt his right knee Sunday, according to the Associated Press.
Insight: He tore the ACL in his left knee a few years ago and said he initially feared the worst on Sunday. "It felt like something was wrong," he said. "It was a similar pain, but it didn't hurt as bad. Once I started walking on it, it felt OK." Jets tight ends combined to catch 62 passes for 849 yards and six of New York's 13 passing touchdowns last season, so Amaro is a nice sleeper.
Chris Ivory, RB7/24/2014 1:45:00 PM
Description: Injury-prone Jets running back Chris Ivory is already sitting out drills with a hamstring problem.
Insight: Ivory dealt with a hamstring injury last season and despite his talent we want no part of him this season. Chris Johnson is the No. 1 and Ivory a clear No. 2, when healthy. The Jets also have Bilal Powell and Daryl Richardson in the backfield.
Chris Johnson, RB7/23/2014 10:13:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Johnson (knee) has been medically cleared for training camp, according to ESPN.com.
Insight: Johnson sat out offseason activities after undergoing knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus, which he says he suffered in Week 3 last year. He rushed for a career-low 3.9 ypc in 2013 but was still a fantasy factor because he received 279 carries, caught 42 balls and scored 10 touchdowns (six rushing). He's going to split carries with Chris Ivory on early downs and Bilal Powell will handle third downs, so Johnson may not reach 250 touches this season.
Chris Johnson, RB6/28/2014 10:02:00 PM
Description: Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn said that the team is "going to have to be strategic" in how it uses Chris Johnson to "keep him fresh so that he can be the explosive guy that I know that he can be." SOURCE: nj.com
Insight: Lynn said earlier this month that the Jets would use a hot-hand situation at running back. Johnson averaged 298 carries the past five seasons, but he may not reach 220 carries this year with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell also getting touches.
Mike Goodson, RB6/17/2014 11:56:00 AM
Description: Jets running back Mike Goodson (torn ACL/MCL) is a no-show at mandatory minicamp according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.
Insight: Goodson doesn't figure to get much work this season anyway, as he's well down the depth chart. He's more likely to be cut that have any fantasy value this season.
Chris Johnson, RB6/16/2014 1:55:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Johnson will have first shot, but its likely to be a "go with the hot hand situation" according to RB coach Anthony Lynn.
Insight: That makes this situation a lot different than the one he had in Tennessee where he was definitively the No. 1 guy. In six seasons with the Titans the fewest attempts he saw were 251 in his rookie season. Johnson will battle with Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Daryl Richardson for reps.
Daryl Richardson, RB5/18/2014 2:47:00 PM
Description: The Jets claimed running back Daryl Richardson off waivers from the Rams on Friday.
Insight: Richardson was waived Thursday. St. Louis handed him the starting job following the departure of Steven Jackson, but he averaged just 3.1 ypc and lost the job to Zac Stacy. He's not guaranteed to make the Jets roster, as New York has Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell on the roster.
Jace Amaro, TE5/9/2014 8:33:00 PM
Description: The New York Jets took tight end Jace Amaro with the No. 49 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Insight: Tight ends Kellen Winslow and Jeff Cumberland combined for 57 catches on 87 targets for 786 yards and six of New York's 13 passing TDs last season. The 6-5 Amaro should start right away for the Jets, who have fortified their offense with Eric Decker, Chris Johnson and Amaro this offseason.
Chris Johnson, RB4/16/2014 3:18:00 PM
Description: The Jets have reached an agreement with three-time Pro Bowl running back Chris Johnson.
Insight: According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, it's a two-year, $8 million deal. Johnson's yards per carry dipped to 3.9 last season with Tennessee and the bigger Chris Ivory (6-foot, 222 pounds) will probably see most of the carries around the goal line. For the first time in years, Johnson isn't a must-start fantasy player.
Jacoby Ford, WR4/2/2014 9:35:00 AM
Description: Former Raiders receiver Jacoby Ford has signed with the New York Jets.
Insight: Ford's one constant is that he's been injured more than healthy and he's yet to prove he can be a full-time NFL receiver. Since being drafted in 2010, he's totaled just 57 receptions for 848 yards and three touchdowns. He does own four career kickoff returns for scores.
Michael Vick, QB3/21/2014 7:10:00 PM
Description: Michael Vick has agreed to a one-year, $5 million contract with the Jets. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Vick wanted a starting job and now he has one. With Eric Decker in the fold, he'll have a pretty good receiver to throw to as well. Geno Smith's fantasy value will be zilch unless Vick gets hurt. Fortunately for Smith, Vick hasn't played an entire 16-game season since 2006.
Mark Sanchez, QB3/21/2014 6:51:00 PM
Description: The Jets have officially released quarterback Mark Sanchez. SOURCE: Jason La Canfora, CBS Sports
Insight: He became expendable when the team signed Mike Vick earlier today. Most of the league's quarterback openings have already been filled, meaning Sanchez will likely have to settle for a backup job in 2014.
Santonio Holmes, WR3/10/2014 3:20:00 PM
Description: The Jets have released wideout Santonio Holmes.
Insight: Holmes had just 23 receptions and one touchdown in 11 games last season, though he did average 19.8 yards per catch. His time in New York was a complete failure compared to his production in Pittsburgh.
Nick Folk, K3/1/2014 6:58:00 PM
Description: Nick Folk received the Jets' franchise tag on Friday. SOURCE: Anwar Richardson, Yahoo Sports
Insight: Folk's annual salary will increase from $780,000 to just under $3.4 million. He was the 11th-highest scorer among fantasy kickers last season.
Sheldon Richardson, DL2/1/2014 9:43:00 PM
Description: Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson was honored as the 2013 Defensive Rookie of the Year on Saturday.
Insight: He barely beat out Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso for the award. Richardson clawed his way to 77 tackles and 3.5 sacks this season while also adding two touchdowns on four rushing attempts as a part-time fullback. The 6-foot-3, 294-pounder was drafted 13th overall out of Mizzou last April.
Santonio Holmes, WR1/22/2014 4:02:00 PM
Description: The Jets plan to release Santonio Holmes, Mark Sanchez and Antonio Cromartie to create $26.1 million in cap room, according to Rich Cimini of espnny.com.
Insight: Holmes had just 23 receptions and one touchdown in 11 games last season, though he did average 19.8 yards per catch.
Chris Ivory, RB12/22/2013 5:41:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory had his third 100-yard game of the season Sunday against the Browns.
Insight: Ivory dealt with a hamstring injury early in the season and didn't take the reigns of the team's backfield until Week 6, but he's been a solid flex option since then with 699 rushing yards and three touchdowns over his last nine games.
Antonio Cromartie, DB12/9/2013 9:48:00 AM
Description: Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie suffered a head injury in Sunday's game.
Insight: Cromartie stayed on the field all game, but after the game the injury came to light. If its a concussion he'll obviously have to go through the protocol before being allowed to play against Carolina next weekend.
Santonio Holmes, WR12/5/2013 2:42:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is expected to be actice Sunday against Oakland.
Insight: Lets hope active means more than the three snaps he saw last week while "active." Fantasy owners should not trust him to be on the field or that quarterback Geno Smith could get him the ball even if he was open.
Geno Smith, QBCold12/2/2013 3:03:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith will get the start next week against Oakland. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPN New York
Insight: It certainly can't be off his work Sunday against Miami. That performace was one of the worst we've seen this season (4-of-10, 29 yards, 1 INT) and got him replaced by Matt Simms at halftime. New York's struggling second round pick is making Jets fans miss Mark Sanchez.
Santonio Holmes, WR12/1/2013 12:08:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Dolphins.
Insight: Holmes is far from 100 percent and had just one catch for 12 yards on four targets last week against the Ravens. He shouldn't be started in any leagues.
Chris Ivory, RB11/29/2013 4:21:00 PM
Description: New York halfback Chris Ivory is listed as probable on the team's Week 13 injury report.
Insight: Ivory suffered a sprained ankle Sunday against Baltimore but has been able to practice on a limited basis throughout the week. He'll split carries with Bilal Powell this week against the Dolphins.
Santonio Holmes, WR11/29/2013 3:45:00 PM
Description: A hamstring injury prevented Jets wideout Santonio Holmes from practicing on Friday. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPN New York
Insight: He's going to be a game-time decision Sunday against Miami. Fantasy owners probably won't be holding their breath as Holmes is only owned in about 18 percent of ESPN leagues.
