Geno Smith - QBPosted 1/22/15 10:58pm ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith has a lot of talent and promise, according to new head coach Todd Bowles. At the same time, Bowles acknowledged that the quarterback position is currently an open slate, with Smith and Matt Simms the only quarterbacks currently rostered.
Huddle Up: Certainly look for the Jets to bring a QB or two this offseason -- maybe a free agent and a draft pick -- to give Smith some serious competition for the starting gig. Bowles saw first-hand with the Cards last season how bad QB play can short-circuit a team's season, and he'd rather not relive the anguish in debut year with the Jets.
Chan Gailey - OCPosted 1/20/15 10:19pm ET
Former Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey has been named the new offensive coordinator of the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Gailey, who was the Bills' head coach from 2010-12, has previously been an offensive coordinator with four different NFL teams and will be the Jets' fourth OC in the last five years. The 63-year-old will also bring some much needed experience to the staff of first-time head coach Todd Bowles.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 1/16/15 11:00pm ET
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson, who had just 663 rushing yards this year, is expected to be released this offseason. Johnson is due to make $4 million in 2015.
Huddle Up: Definitely expect Chris Ivory to have a new running mate in the Jets' backfield next season as Johnson's pricetag has outlived his production.
Todd Bowles - HCPosted 1/14/15 12:37pm ET
Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles will be hired by the New York Jets for their head coaching position, a source involved in the process said Tuesday, Jan. 13. He is expected to officially sign a four-year deal Wednesday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Bowles extends the Jets' string of defensive-minded head coaches to six, but while the cupboard is not necessarily bare he doesn't inherit nearly the same level of defensive talent he worked with in Arizona. On the bright side, he's used to trying to overcome lackluster quarterback play.
Chan Gailey - OCPosted 1/14/15 12:37pm ET
Former Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey is expected to be the offensive coordinator with the New York Jets on the new staff of head coach Todd Bowles, a source said.
Huddle Up: Gailey has historically been more of a thrower than a ground and pound guy, which could mean some big changes for the Jets' offensive personnel. On the bright side, Gailey actually had success when forced to use Tyler Thigpen for 11 games so he could certainly squeeze something out of Geno Smith as well.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 12/30/14 2:13am ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith made a strong impression on the team's owner with his stellar Week 17 performance against the Miami Dolphins. 'I think he's a young quarterback who in the last five games has gotten much, much better. ...I've got confidence in Geno. I really think he can be good.'
Huddle Up: One big game and now it looks like the Jets' owner will force his new coach and GM to build around Geno. That might take a bite out of the potential talent pool, as most coaches/GMs prefer to base their success on a player of their choosing rather than an existing player with a sketchy track record.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 12/29/14 9:24am ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith set a career high in passing yards (358) and tied his personal best of 3 touchdown passes in a single game with his performance in Week 17 versus the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: What do you think the Vegas odds were of Geno posting a perfect passer rating in Week 17? "Astronomical" barely scratches the surface. And yet there were signs of life for the Jets' sophomore quarterback, enough so that Rex Ryan's replacement might just give Smith a spin in 2015.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 12/29/14 9:24am ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker recorded 10 receptions for 221 yards and a touchdown versus the Miami Dolphins in Week 17. He finished the year with 74 catches, 962 yards and 5 touchdowns.
Huddle Up: It certainly was different than catching passes from Peyton Manning, but Decker established himself in New York and gives Geno Smith and the new coaching staff something to build on in the passing game.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/26/14 7:32pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ribs) said he is confident he will be able to play in the team's Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: The Jets offense is closing out a miserable season against the Dolphins. Harvin will be a WR3/Flex option if he suits up this week.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/25/14 9:11pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle, ribs) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: That's two straight missed days for Harvin, whose status remains very much in doubt for Week 17.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/23/14 7:51pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ribs) has not been ruled out for Week 17, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan did say that if he was a betting man, he'd probably look for another option.
Huddle Up: Unless you're truly desperate, it's best to look elsewhere for Week 17 WR help.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/18/14 2:04pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Harvin was able to get back on the field after sitting out Wednesday, but his status for Sunday is still yet to be determined.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/18/14 11:38pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, but barring a setback, he's expected to play in Week 16 against the New England Patriots. Harvin suffered a third-degree ankle sprain just two weeks ago, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Harvin was limited to a special teams role last week.
Huddle Up: Harvin had a season-best 6-124-1 performance in his last healthy outing in Week 14 and his presence is key for the Jets and prevents the Patriots from focusing on WR Eric Decker.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/11/14 2:44pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, but is catching passes from a JUGS machine.
Huddle Up: Following his best outing of the season (6-124-1), Harvin has yet to practice this week and remains a longshot to play Sunday in Tennessee.
Jace Amaro - TEPosted 12/9/14 4:14pm ET
New York Jets TE Jace Amaro (concussion), who has missed the last two games with a concussion, could be cleared to play in Week 15 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Check in as the week progresses, but things are looking up for the rookie TE.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/8/14 10:34am ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) injured his left ankle late in the game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Dec. 7, and he may be out for the remainder of the season pending further tests. Harvin, who left the stadium on crutches, caught six passes for 124 yards against the Vikings.
Huddle Up: Harvin hurt? In other breaking news, taxes are high and the sun came up in the east this morning. Percy was going off against his former team prior to the injury, but it should come as no shock that with high volume usage comes the propensity for the hard-playing yet extremely brittle Harvin to suffer yet another injury.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/8/14 8:22pm ET
Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Percy Harvin has been diagnosed with a low-ankle sprain. Head coach Rex Ryan said it is not looking good for Harvin to play in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Tough timing for Harvin and the Jets as the WR is coming off his best fantasy day (6-124-1) of the season.
Muhammad Wilkerson - DEPosted 12/4/14 2:24pm ET
New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (toe) is making progress in his rehab from a toe injury but will not be able to play in Week 14, according to head coach Rex Ryan.
Huddle Up: The Jets' leader in sacks will miss a second straight game, making life easier for Vikings rookie Teddy Bridgewater & Co. on Sunday.
Nick Folk - PKPosted 12/3/14 12:29am ET
New York Jets PK Nick Folk had discomfort in his hip following Monday night's game against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: A heads-up if your PK is Folk, who missed two of his four attempts Monday night.
Jace Amaro - TEPosted 12/3/14 4:13pm ET
New York Jets TE Jace Amaro (concussion) is not expected to play in Week 14, according to head coach Rex Ryan.
Huddle Up: The rookie will miss a second straight game, leaving the Jets' TE duties to Jeff Cumberland and Zach Sudfeld.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 12/2/14 1:13am ET
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson had 17 carries for 105 yards in the team's 16-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins Monday, Dec. 1. His 17 carries were a season high, and he topped 100 yards for his first time with the Jets.
Huddle Up: A clutch performance for those fantasy GMs who rolled the dice Monday night with the player formerly producing as CJ2K, but how many owners this actually benefited is in serious question.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 12/2/14 4:23pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker had just two catches for 18 yards in the team's Week 13 loss to the Miami Dolphins Monday, Dec. 1. Decker has been targeted 10 or more times just four times this year.
Huddle Up: Hey, that's life going from Peyton Manning to the run-heavy Jets, who put the ball in the air only 13 times Monday night. They'll be better days for Decker, but, overall, you can't say you weren't warned.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 12/2/14 9:04pm ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith will remain the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Rex Ryan, despite his dismal and mundane performance Monday night against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Smith or any other QB is definitely far from fantasy usable if a team is only going to call 15 passing plays and 49 runs as the Jets did Monday night.
Greg Salas - WRPosted 12/1/14 10:28pm ET
New York Jets WR Greg Salas (hamstring) has been ruled out for the remainder of the team's Week 13 game with a hamstring injury Monday, Dec. 1. He was injured while scoring on a 20-yard reverse in the first quarter.
Huddle Up: Still no breaks for Rex Ryan and the 2-9 Jets as players can't even score a touchdown without getting hurt.
Jace Amaro - TEPosted 11/29/14 8:39pm ET
New York Jets TE Jace Amaro (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Jeff Cumberland will start against the Dolphins. He's far off the fantasy radar.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 11/26/14 4:05pm ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith will return to the starting quarterback role in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins, after QB Michael Vick saw only three starts. The feeling around the team is that general manager John Idzik insisted that head coach Rex Ryan start Smith over Vick. 'The main factor is you want to give your guys a chance to win the game,' Ryan said. 'That's the No. 1 factor you look into. But that's what we did. We feel good. Geno last time out had a good game against Miami (in Week 17 last season).'
Huddle Up: The Jets need to find out if Smith has a long-term future with the franchise, and need him off the bench and in live action to make that determination. It mainly boils down to decision-making and keeping the turnovers to a minimum. If he can do that, it shouldn't affect what limited fantasy values there are for the team's other offensive skill players.
Jace Amaro - TEPosted 11/26/14 6:49pm ET
New York Jets TE Jace Amaro (head) is not expected to play in Week 13, because he is going through the concussion protocol.
Huddle Up: Get another option lined up if you were planning on using the N.Y. rookie.
Jace Amaro - TEPosted 11/25/14 3:39pm ET
New York Jets TE Jace Amaro left the team's Week 12 game Monday, Nov. 24, with a head injury.
Huddle Up: Sounds like a week in the concussion protocol is ahead for the rookie, who finished without a reception or target Monday night.
Michael Vick - QBPosted 11/25/14 3:45pm ET
New York Jets QB Michael Vick (calf) is expected to start in Week 13 if he is healthy, according to head coach Rex Ryan, who downplayed Vick's injury.
Huddle Up: Vick is trending in the wrong direction, going from 196 to 132 to 76 passing yards over the last three games and failing to guide the Jets into the end zone Monday night while throwing an interception. Surely you have better options.
Jace Amaro - TEPosted 11/19/14 2:13pm ET
New York Jets TE Jace Amaro is participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. He missed practice Monday, Nov. 17, because of an illness.
Huddle Up: Fantasy's top rookie TE should be good to go with Monday's issue being nothing more than an illness and the Jets coming off the bye.
