Josh McCown - QBPosted 3/24/17 12:00pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown has not been assured that he will begin training camp as starter, and it is a decision which will be made by head coach Todd Bowles, according to general manager Mike Maccagnan.
Huddle Up: The Jets are 'highly unlikely' to add another free-agent quarterback per Maccagnan, but he acknowledged drafting another one is a possibility. McCown should still be considered the odds-on favorite, but he will turn 38 in July and has never played a full season. In short, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg should expect to make starts this season. It's going to be hard for fantasy owners to find any value in this passing game in 2017.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 3/18/17 5:36pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is expected to get a chance to complete his rehab from hip and shoulder surgeries before the Jets decide whether to keep or release him, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.
Huddle Up: With all the lives they've made this offseason, the Jets are not hurting for salary cap room. New York may be doing himself a favor by keeping Decker, if only to make it a bit easier for whatever quarterback it decides to settle on in 2017. Given the current state of the Jets, Decker will be hard-pressed to maintain WR3 value this season.
Sheldon Richardson - DEPosted 3/11/17 3:01pm ET
The New York Jets would 'consider' a trade of DE Sheldon Richardson to the Cincinnati Bengals for QB AJ McCarron, according to ESPN.com's Rich Cimini.
Huddle Up: At the moment, this proposed trade is nothing more than a 'hot internet rumor', according to Cimini, but one he believes the Jets have considered. Cimini also notes that both players will be free agents at the end of the 2017 season and Cincinnati would need to include a draft pick in order to make it work. If the trade ever comes to fruition, McCarron would be hard-pressed to be anything more than a low-end QB2 for the foreseeable future.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 3/3/17 7:10am ET
Free-agent WR Brandon Marshall (Jets) could receive interest from the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: That would be a solid fit for Marshall, who still has enough left in the tank to be a WR2 in fantasy.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 3/3/17 3:06pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is able to run straight ahead and should be able to participate in the non-contact organized team activities this offseason, according to general manager Mike Maccagnan. Maccagnan said he believes Decker will be ready for the start of the 2017 season.
Huddle Up: Decker underwent two surgeries during the regular season and could be on the roster bubble once he recovers from the surgeries because of his salary. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during the offseason to see if he suffers any setbacks. Decker can be a No. 2 receiver when he is healthy but probably would be a better option as a No. 3 receiver.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 3/2/17 7:11pm ET
The New York Jets are releasing WR Brandon Marshall, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Marshall could easily deliver WR2 numbers in 2017 if he lands with the right team. His departure opens the door for Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson to assume bigger roles in the offense
Eric Decker - WRPosted 3/2/17 8:17pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) has a 'good chance' of missing training camp.
Huddle Up: Decker has WR2 potential when healthy, but you may want to prepare for a slow start to the season as he works his way back from multiple injuries.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 3/2/17 9:05pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) could be cut this offseason whenever he passes his physical, according to beat writer Manish Mehta.
Huddle Up: Brandon Marshall has already been released. If Decker also leaves, Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson could both be fantasy starters in 2017.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 2/22/17 12:21pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall dropped seven passes this past season, according to ESPN Stats and Information.
Huddle Up: Marshall's future with the Jets is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to monitor the situation. He finished this season with 59 receptions, 788 yards and three touchdowns. Marshall probably will be a starting receiver for a team in 2017 and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 2/22/17 12:08pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) could be asked to restructure his contract this offseason because he is scheduled to count $8.75 million against the salary cap in 2017 and is coming off hip and shoulder injuries.
Huddle Up: Decker was limited to three games because of his injuries but was able to post 194 yards and two touchdowns in those games. He should be back with the Jets in 2017, but his value will depend on the team's quarterback. He probably should be considered a No. 3 receiver with the potential to be a No. 2 receiver.
Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 2/22/17 12:25pm ET
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa dropped five passes this past season, according to ESPN Stats and Information.
Huddle Up: Enunwa was a consistent option for the Jets this past season and led the team in receiving yards with 857 yards and touchdowns with four. He should continue to have a solid role in the passing game in 2017 and can be a No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 2/22/17 8:42pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell amassed 82 carries for 411 yards and two touchdowns while adding 21 catches for 141 yards over the final four games of the regular season.
Huddle Up: It's worth remembering Powell pulled off this feat with Bryce Petty and Ryan Fitzpatrick under center and behind a banged-up offensive line as well as a defense that didn't look like it cared at times toward the end of the season. Powell's strong finish should put him in line to begin 2017 no worse than a split backfield partner, although the film suggests he should start over Matt Forte. As such, Powell should be considered a high-upside flex for now.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 2/14/17 6:22am ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall has about a 60 percent chance of being cut this offseason, in the opinion of The Star-Ledger's Darryl Slater.
Huddle Up: Marshall went from the best season of his career to the worst since his rookie season. He turns 33 next month, and there appears to be plenty still in the tank. However, that WR1 window has probably closed. He'd be a solid WR2 candidate in a better situation.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 2/11/17 5:21pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said he will 'absolutely' change his leadership style after his vocal approach caused friction in the locker room in 2016.
Huddle Up: Marshall could end up being released in the offseason, and if he lands with a better offense, he could still be a WR2 candidate. If he is back with the Jets, he shouldn't be trusted as more than a WR3.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 2/10/17 8:08pm ET
New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's contract voids Friday, Feb. 10, but he likely won't become an official free agent until March 9.
Huddle Up: After struggling throughout 2016, Fitzpatrick is unlikely to land a starting gig no matter where he plays in 2017. His surprise 2015 campaign was probably his last run as a viable fantasy option.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 2/8/17 3:34pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said he believes he will be back with the Jets in 2017 because the organization has not given him any indication that he will not return.
Huddle Up: Marshall is scheduled to count $7.5 million against the salary cap in 2017 but he could be released since the team would save that amount of cap space. Owners will need to keep an eye on his situation because he could have more value based on his team. Marshall likely will start no matter where he plays and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 2/2/17 7:20pm ET
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa finished the 2016 season with 58 catches for 857 yards and four touchdowns, setting career highs in all three categories.
Huddle Up: Enunwa ran hot and cold, but if Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker aren't back with the team, Enunwa should slide into a bigger role and will be a worth a look as a WR4 in 2017.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 2/2/17 6:25pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall could be targeted by the Baltimore Ravens if Marshall is released because he is the type of veteran receiver general manager Ozzie Newsome has pursued in the past, according to beat writer Jeff Zrebiec.
Huddle Up: Marshall's 2016 campaign was derailed by injuries and the lack of quality quarterback play, but he could jump back into the WR2 mix if he lands in Baltimore.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 1/27/17 4:46pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte rushed for 419 yards and six touchdowns on the road this season while rushing for 394 yards and one touchdown at home.
Huddle Up: Forte lost some of his touches during the season half of the season and finished the season on the Reserve/Injured list because of a knee injury. He probably would be part of a committee if he stays with the Jets but could still be a No. 3 running back for owners depending on his role.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 1/18/17 5:57pm ET
Contrary to a report earlier this month, New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall is not open to accepting a pay cut. He is set to make $7.5 million in 2017, the final season of a three-year, $26 million contract. 'People need to get away from (my being) due $7.5 million. Get away from my salary. That's underpaid. Any team should be happy to have me for $7.5 million,' Marshall told WFAN radio's Boomer and Carton Show on Wednesday, Jan. 18.
Huddle Up: According to ESPN, Marshall's 2017 salary is tied for 13th among receivers in terms of actual cash payout. The 32-year-old (33 in March) probably isn't going to repeat 2015 again (109 catches, 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns), but nagging injuries and poor quarterback play make him look a lot worse than what he was in 2016 (59 catches, 788 yards and three TDs). With an upgrade at quarterback this off-season, Marshall could return to the WR2 ranks.
Devin Smith - WRPosted 1/12/17 7:38pm ET
New York Jets WR Devin Smith is planning an offseason training program to continue to strengthen his surgically repaired knee.
Huddle Up: Injuries have derailed Smith's career, but the Jets spent a second-round pick on him and will likely give Smith every opportunity to prove his worth once he is healthy. Smith has big-play speed, and he will be worth a late-round flier in deeper formats in 2017.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 1/2/17 10:46am ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) underwent surgery for a torn meniscus Friday, Dec. 30, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Huddle Up: Forte should have no issues returning in time for spring workouts, but his role for 2017 is unclear. Bilal Powell finished the season strong even as the Jets' offense feel apart around him and has earned the right to a 50-50 split of the workload in New York, if not the starting job. It will be surprising if Forte is much more than a flex option in 2017.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 1/2/17 3:16pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall is set to make $7.5 million next season, but none of that money is guaranteed. The Jets can save the money by cutting Marshall, but the receiver is willing to take a pay cut. 'It's not about the money anymore,' Marshall said. 'It's all about winning.'
Huddle Up: Marshall really regressed in 2016, largely due to inconsistent quarterback play. It's unclear who will start for the Jets next season, or if Marshall will even be back with the Jets. That being said, be cautious with his valuation. If he does return to New York, he should be tentatively viewed as a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 1/2/17 3:12pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell may receive a bigger role in 2017 after he played well over the last month of the season, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Powell rushed for 411 yards over the last four games of the season, which was third most in the league during that span.
Huddle Up: Powell could receive a chance to compete for the starting job during training camp but will still have a solid role in the offense even if he does not start. He will be involved in the running and passing game in 2017 and should be considered a middle-round pick in drafts.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 1/1/17 9:00am ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall (hip, shoulder) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson probably will receive most of the targets during the game with Marshall out. Enunwa can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option, while Anderson could be a flex option in deeper leagues.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 1/1/17 8:57am ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (knee) will play in Week 17's game against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Powell only participated in one day of practice on a limited basis during the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. He is expected to start and receive the bulk of the carries this afternoon, making him worthy of consideration as a viable RB2 option in most fantasy formats.
Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 1/1/17 3:06pm ET
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa caught five passes for 81 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Enunwa was a nice surprise for owners this season and should be at least the No. 3 receiver for the Jets next season. He probably can be considered a late-round option in drafts next season and can be used as a flex option at times.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 1/1/17 3:03pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell rushed for 122 yards on 22 carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 17. He also caught three passes for 15 yards and one touchdown during the game.
Huddle Up: Powell should have a chance to compete for the starting running back job next season depending on Matt Forte's status with the team. He will has a solid role on offense even if he does not start and can be a middle- to late-round option in leagues.
Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 1/1/17 9:43pm ET
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa posted five receptions for 81 yards on eight targets in the Week 17 game against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Enunwa finished up with 58 receptions for 857 yards and four scores. He was a bit erratic with his production, following up good games by completely disappearing. If he can show some consistency in 2017 he might be a fantasy regular in 2017.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 1/1/17 9:42pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell rushed for 122 yards on 22 carries in the Week 17 game against the Buffalo Bills. He also had three receptions for 15 yards and a touchdown on three targets.
Huddle Up: Powell proved he is more than capable of handling the full-time load when Matt Forte was unavailable. The Jets are likely to have plenty of upheaval on their roster in the offseason. If Powell finds himself competing for the starting tailback job, he could be a nice fantasy sleeper in 2017.
