Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/24/16 1:32pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) hopefully will be able to play in the preseason game against the New York Giants Saturday, Aug. 27, as long as he does not suffer any setbacks, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Huddle Up: Forte probably will see limited playing time against the Giants because the Jets want him to be ready for Week 1. Forte should receive most of the work at running back this season and can be a No. 2 running back in a majority of fantasy leagues.
Randy Bullock - PKPosted 8/22/16 2:12pm ET
Free-agent PK Randy Bullock (Jets) will sign with the New York Giants, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Bullock will be the kicker for at least Week 1 since Josh Brown is suspended, but it is not known if Bullock will keep the job. The Giants offense should be productive this season, so Bullock could be a starting option in daily fantasy leagues for Week 1.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/22/16 4:44pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) increased his practice workload Monday, Aug. 22, and may play Saturday, Aug. 27, against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: He may not play much if he does play, but it will still be nice to see how Forte looks since he's been recovering from the hamstring ailment. Even with his cumbersome workloads over his career, Forte is still a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 consideration.
Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 8/20/16 10:22am ET
Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (concussion) suffered a concussion during the first quarter of the preseason game versus the Washington Redskins Friday, Aug. 19. Enunwa sustained the injury when he was accidentally kneed in the head by Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder on punt coverage.
Huddle Up: Although Enunwa is expected to serve as the Jets' No. 3 receiver, he should not be viewed as anything more than a WR5 in deeper fantasy leagues, with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker slated to see the vast majority of the targets this season.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/17/16 3:59pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) is participating in team drills during practice Wednesday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: The progress arrow continues to point in the right direction for Forte, who now has taken part in back-to-back days of practice after missing the early part of camp. If he continues at this rate, there should be no doubt about his availability for Week 1.
Bernard Pierce - RBPosted 8/16/16 7:27pm ET
New York Jets RB Bernard Pierce (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Aug. 16.
Huddle Up: Pierce's numbers have steadily dwindled since his 532-yard rookie season in Baltimore, and that trend will continue.
Antone Smith - RBPosted 8/16/16 7:27pm ET
Free-agent RB Antone Smith (Bears) was signed by the New York Jets on Tuesday, Aug. 16.
Huddle Up: Yes, it's that Antone Smith -- he of the seven TDs on 46 offensive touches in 2013-14 with the Falcons -- but he's had one carry since then and will be fighting for his roster life in N.Y. as a replacement for injured backup Bernard Pierce.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/16/16 7:37pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) said he will definitely be ready to play in Week 1. His goal is see some action in the third preseason game against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: It's been a slow start to be certain for the 30-year-old RB in N.Y., but there's still ample time for the veteran to get on track for the games that count. He remains a mid-range RB2 on The Huddle's standard-scoring cheat sheet.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/15/16 9:08am ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) is participating in individual drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 14.
Huddle Up: Forte has been sidelined for a few weeks because of his hamstring but appears to be making progress. Forte will be the starting running back for the Jets this season if he is healthy and should be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/14/16 10:22pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) did not practice Saturday, Aug. 13, and it remains uncertain when he will be able to return. However, head coach Todd Bowles said Forte has been receiving treatment and isn't concerned at this point about beginning the regular season without him.
Huddle Up: Yeesh, not exactly beneficial news for the 30-year-old back's draft stock if we're now talking about the start of the regular season being in jeopardy. In the meantime, start moving Bilal Powell up on your boards.
Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 8/12/16 8:51am ET
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa can develop into a "big-time weapon" for the offense, according to Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Enunwa had a team-high 69 yards in a 17-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: Enunwa is on track to be the No. 3 receiver, but with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker soaking up most of the targets, Enunwa's ceiling is capped. Leave him on the wire and remember his name should something go awry with either of the top two wideouts.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/9/16 7:24pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday, Aug. 9, and will not play in the Jets' first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 11, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Even though he's in a new offense, somehow we don't think the soon-to-be 31-year-old Forte is going to miss much by sitting out the preseason opener.
Khiry Robinson - RBPosted 8/8/16 3:10pm ET
New York Jets RB Khiry Robinson (leg) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 8. Robinson was placed on the PUP list in late July after suffering a broken leg late last season.
Huddle Up: The ex-Saint joins the Jets' RB mix, with Matt Forte and Bilal Powell firmly entrenched atop the depth chart. His best bet for playing time might be carving out a role as a short-yardage back with that not necessarily being a strong suit for Forte and Powell.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 8/7/16 12:55pm ET
New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said he is feeling good even though he did not participate in any offseason workouts with the team.
Huddle Up: Hey, Fitzpatrick is 33 and has needed some time to get rid of his sea legs after signing on the eve of camp. He's a QB2 who can post some big weeks with his WR duo of Decker and Marshall.
Darrelle Revis - CBPosted 8/5/16 8:46am ET
New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis said he would be open to switching positions and playing safety in the future.
Huddle Up: It is a few years off, and it would give him legitimate IDP value, but this is meaningless for 2016 draft plans.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/4/16 4:53pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) will not be ready for the preseason opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 11, according to head coach Todd Bowles, as he continues to nurse a hamstring issue.
Huddle Up: The Jets aren't about to rush their top back -- and a back who will be 31 before the season is over -- into action for the preseason opener. Forte remains a mid-level RB2 prospect.
Jace Amaro - TEPosted 8/2/16 7:43am ET
New York Jets TE Jace Amaro (shoulder) missed the entire 2015 season after shoulder surgery, but he has stood out during the early days of training camp making a lot of catches while serving as a noticeable target in red-zone drills. Last season WR Quincy Enunwa emerged as a hybrid receiver/tight end, and that might be whom Amaro is fighting for reps this year.
Huddle Up: Amaro was a standout at Texas Tech and entered the NFL with much fanfare. However, he didn't do much in 2014 and was sidelined completely in 2015, so fantasy owners can scoop him up on the cheap in drafts this season. He still has plenty of upside and could be that late-round gem to push you over the top.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/2/16 3:16pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 2. He missed the first four practices of training camp with a hamstring ailment.
Huddle Up: Something to keep an eye on with the now-30-year-old back, who's ranked squarely in the RB2 range.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/1/16 11:01am ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) has missed the first four practices of training camp after tweaking his hamstring while running on his own, and he is being cautious with the injury to avoid a setback. As a veteran of nine seasons, there is not a lot of urgency to get Forte on the field.
Huddle Up: While a hamstring strain before camp even opens sets an ominous tone for a well-seasoned running back like Forte, he's taking the smart approach by not rushing it. In PPR scoring, he's a fringe RB1 and a much safer second back.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 7/28/16 7:59pm ET
Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Matt Forte did not practice Thursday, July 28, because of a hamstring injury. Head coach Todd Bowles said Forte is considered day-to-day at this point.
Huddle Up: Forte isn't as young as he used to be -- he'll turn 31 before the end of this season -- and a late-July injury is just another indicator that his 2016 workload likely won't approach what it was in recent seasons in Chicago.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 7/28/16 7:59pm ET
New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the starting quarterback in 2016, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Fitzpatrick worked with the first team on the first day of training camp Thursday, July 28.
Huddle Up: All we were waiting for is the Jets and the QB to end their protracted contract squabble, and now that it's settled, it's good news for the fantasy values of WRs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker in particular.
Bernard Pierce - RBPosted 7/27/16 2:52pm ET
Free-agent RB Bernard Pierce (Jaguars) will sign with the New York Jets Wednesday, July 27.
Huddle Up: He'll just add to the RB depth mix. Matt Forte, Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson are already on board and expected to play significant roles this year.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 7/27/16 2:52pm ET
Updating an ongoing story, free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is believed to be close to ending his impasse with the New York Jets, according to some that know him well.
Huddle Up: The fantasy fortunes of Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall are running on the outcome of this impasse. Fitzpatrick is expected to sign at some point but until he does there is risk with the rest of this offense.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 7/27/16 9:32pm ET
Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the New York Jets Wednesday, July 27, worth $12 million. Fitzpatrick can earn an additional $3 million based on the team's performance.
Huddle Up: Great news for the entire Jets offense but in particular for Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker who combined for 189 catches for 2529 yards and 26 touchdowns. The second year for OC Chan Gailey's offense should be just as good - and possibly better with a returning Fitzpatrick.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 7/25/16 1:54am ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith remains in line to start with the contract impasse between the organization and free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Head coach Todd Bowles said he is confident in Smith as the starter. 'I think Geno can be a good starter, but he's got to prove it in training camp like everybody else,' Bowles said. 'It's not just about the quarterback position. You got to have a team around that position to play ball, but he's been in the system a year. He has a better grasp of it going into training camp and we'll see what he does.'
Huddle Up: What else can Bowles say at this point with the Fitzpatrick impasse dragging out far longer than expected? If only the fantasy owners of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker could share the same outlook.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 7/22/16 1:44pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte should receive plenty of rest this season with RBs Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson also in the mix.
Huddle Up: The new free-agent acquisition will still see the lion's share of the work, but his days as a sure-fire RB1 appear to be over.
Khiry Robinson - RBPosted 7/20/16 12:54am ET
New York Jets RB Khiry Robinson (leg) could be utilized as a short-yardage and goal-line back this season.
Huddle Up: Beware as this could throw a wrench into the Jets' fantasy backfield outlook and make it a three-headed RBBC with Matt Forte and Bilal Powell holding down the top two spots.
Zac Stacy - RBPosted 7/20/16 11:52pm ET
New York Jets RBs Zac Stacy (leg) and Khiry Robinson (leg) will compete for the No. 3 running back job during training camp, but Robinson may have an edge because the team does not believe he has reached his full potential yet.
Huddle Up: What's implied is that Matt Forte and Bilal Powell hold down the top two spots on the Jets' backfield depth chart. It's tough to see a third back carving out fantasy relevancy, especially with the Jets sporting a pair of receivers like Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 7/19/16 4:17pm ET
It looks as though the New York Jets may wait to view the practice repetitions of QB Geno Smith in training camp before there is more movement in talks with free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets), according to sources.
Huddle Up: That would be an absolutely awesome development for Fitzpatrick's keeper-league owners and also those who own or are considering drafting the Jets' main WRs, Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 7/12/16 1:22pm ET
Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has experienced no progress in contract talks with the New York Jets. Time may be running out since training camp felt like a deadline to get a deal done.
Huddle Up: Hard to believe that the QB and the Jets haven't found common ground with camp a little more than 2 weeks away, and that's not good fantasy news for Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall.
