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.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 11/19/14 9:44pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) said Wednesday, Nov. 19, his hamstring improved over the bye week. 'I feel good, I feel good physically, more so mentally,' Decker said. 'You step away for a bit and get a refresh, a restart.'
Huddle Up: Decker has been dealing with a bad hamstring all season. It sounds like he's finally healthy but it may not matter much in the Jets offense. He'll be a WR3/4 this week against Buffalo.
Michael Vick - QBPosted 11/7/14 4:30pm ET
New York Jets QB Michael Vick (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is probable for the team's Week 10 game.
Huddle Up: Vick will play after missing time in the fourth quarter this past Sunday, and he'll face a Steelers' defense giving up the 13th-fewest fantasy points to opposing QBs.
Jeremy Kerley - WRPosted 11/6/14 4:06pm ET
New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley (personal) missed practice Thursday, Nov. 6 and will not participate in practice Friday but should be able to play in Week 10.
Huddle Up: For those using Kerley in deeper leagues, the WR is out for an undisclosed personal reason but is expected to play against the Steelers on Sunday.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 11/6/14 7:04pm ET
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) practiced fully Thursday, Nov. 6.
Huddle Up: Johnson will play Sunday as he has all season, but it's a dart throw projecting his usage as he's had alternating weeks of single- and double-digit touches over the last month. He is coming off a season-high 101 total yards on 13 touches (11 rushes, 2 receptions) in the Week 9 loss in K.C. so take your best guess what that means for this week.
Michael Vick - QBPosted 11/4/14 4:22pm ET
New York Jets QB Michael Vick (foot) will start in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers unless he has any setbacks this week. Head coach Rex Ryan said he is 'really not concerned' about Vick's foot for this weekend. "I'm just going to continue to get treatment all week and just keep doing the same things I did last week and just try not to get it stepped on," Vick said. "Yeah, I'll be good (to play against the Steelers)."
Huddle Up: Vick threw for only 196 yards and one TD while rushing for 18 yards on four carries, but most importantly to the Jets, he didn't turn the ball over. With six teams again on bye in Week 10, Vick could be a decent deeper-league start as he'll likely be trying to keep up with Ben Roethlisberger and the suddenly hot Steelers this Sunday.
Michael Vick - QBPosted 11/2/14 8:27pm ET
New York Jets QB Michael Vick will start in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, head coach Rex Ryan said Sunday, Nov. 2.
Huddle Up: Vick was knocked out of Sunday's game for a while but returned to finish. It's not surprising that he'll be starting in Week 10. Vick will really have to struggle for Geno Smith to be under center again. Vick is a QB2 going forward because of his rushing stats.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 10/31/14 11:21pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin played 44 of 84 snaps in his debut with the team in Week 8, lining up in the backfield and running some deep routes. The Jets are making it a point to immediately get the ball into his hands.
Huddle Up: The Jets won't wait to get Harvin involved. Their season is in shambles and they don't have many playmakers on offense. Expect Harvin to be a big part of the Jets offense going forward.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 10/30/14 7:37pm ET
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson, who carried the ball just three times for seven yards in Week 8, said he's frustrated with his limited role in the offense. 'This is the first time I've ever felt this type of frustration, but there's nothing I can really do about it right now,' Johnson said. Johnson and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg discussed the possibility of expanded his role 2 weeks ago, but that hasn't come to fruition. Head coach Rex Ryan insisted that Johnson isn't being phased out of the offense.
Huddle Up: Chris Ivory has been much better than expected -- currently ranking 11th among all fantasy backs -- and has emerged as the Jets' no-doubt No. 1 option. The recent trade for WR Percy Harvin also takes some opportunities away from Johnson on short passes and even some rushing attempts. The bottom line is that Johnson certainly isn't startable in the majority of leagues, but he still has value as an Ivory handcuff in deeper leagues.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 10/28/14 11:53pm ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith's (shoulder) availability for Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs is in question, and he's experiencing 'minor soreness.' However, head coach Rex Ryan downplayed the severity of Smith's injury, and said the team hopes he can resume throwing by Wednesday, Oct. 29. QB Matt Simms will be ready just in case.
Huddle Up: This could be a factor Sunday given Michael Vick's recent injury track record, but see what Smith can do in practice this week.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 10/27/14 9:21am ET
Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Geno Smith (shoulder) had X-rays on his right shoulder Sunday, Oct. 27, after the Week 8 game against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Regardless of whether or not it was a shoulder injury that ultimately landed Smith on the bench Sunday he certainly played his way out of the lineup with multiple first-quarter turnovers. The shoulder issue might be legit, or it could very well be the Jets' way of cushioning the blow as Smith gets benched for Michael Vick.
Michael Vick - QBPosted 10/27/14 5:23pm ET
New York Jets QB Michael Vick will start this week against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to head coach Rex Ryan.
Huddle Up: It doesn't come as much surprise after Geno Smith's performance and the Jets 1-7 record. While Vick hasn't been much better this year, his ability to put up rushing numbers gives him much more fantasy value than Smith. However, his turnovers makes him only a QB2 right now.
Michael Vick - QBPosted 10/26/14 8:43pm ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith completed just two of his eight pass attempts for five yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions before being benched in favor of QB Michael Vick in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills. Vick completed half of his 36 pass attempts for 153 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. Head coach Rex Ryan said Sunday, Oct. 26, that he has 'no idea' who the starting quarterback will be in Week 9.
Huddle Up: At this point, does it really matter? The Jets offense is a mess. Vick isn't the answer but he provides a spark with his legs. That could give him a slight edge.
Jeremy Kerley - WRPosted 10/21/14 6:09pm ET
New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley officially signed a four-year, $16 million extension Tuesday, Oct. 21. Kerley will receive $5.4 million of guaranteed money. He has 22 catches for 201 yards and a touchdown this year.
Huddle Up: Kerley has sort of been lost in the team's WR shuffle this year with the additions of Eric Decker and, now, Percy Harvin, but he certainly still figures heavily in the Jets' long-term plans. In the meantime, though, Harvin's arrival nixes any fantasy value Kerley still had for this season.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 10/18/14 9:20am ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin is onto his third NFL team, and he looks for more success than with the Seattle Seahawks. In Minnesota, he averaged 7.3 targets per game with 61.2 receiving yards per game and 34.2 yards per game after the catch (YAC). He ranked sixth in YAC. In Seattle, he managed just 4.5 targets per game, with only 25.0 receiving yards per game, 17.0 yards per catch and he ranked 99th in the league in YAC.
Huddle Up: Multiple reports are now surfacing that suggest Harvin's "anger management issues" led to his trade to the Jets. Only time will tell if being shipped off to his third team will result in any personal growth in that area. Maybe playing under a Rex Ryan regime will help, maybe not. At a minimum his talent on the field should be a benefit to QB Geno Smith and the Jets offense.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 10/17/14 12:45am ET
New York Jets RB Chris Ivory had 21 carries for a season-high 107 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 7 game Thursday, Oct. 16. He also added four catches for 18 yards.
Huddle Up: Ivory rebounded quite nicely from his 8-carry, 7-yard game in Week 6 -- at least for those fantasy owners who hadn't lost faith. Chris Johnson also had a decent game with 80 total yards on 15 touches Thursday night, but Ivory had 10 more touches and retains his strong grip on the Jets' starting job.
Jace Amaro - TEPosted 10/16/14 4:17pm ET
New York Jets TE Jace Amaro played 36 snaps in the team's Week 6 loss to the Denver Broncos after being stuck between 20 and 25 snaps in every game this year before that. He also doubled his season high in catches and scored a touchdown against the Broncos. Amaro could be emerging into QB Geno Smith's No. 2 target behind WR Eric Decker in the passing game.
Huddle Up: Amaro, who ranks fourth among all TEs with 15 targets over the last two weeks, is developing into a sneaky-good fantasy TE starter as one of the few pass-catching weapons Smith and the Jets can count on.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 10/14/14 7:44pm ET
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Since putting up 61 total yards and a TD in Week 4, Johnson has only 33 total yards on 12 touches over the last 2 games as the Jets have been running in place. He shouldn't come anywhere near a starting lineup -- or even a roster in smaller leagues -- until he shows some signs of life.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 10/14/14 7:52pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) was limited in practice Tuesday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Nothing really new here as the Jets' receiving yardage leader should be good to go Thursday night in Foxborough.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 10/13/14 8:45pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) would've been limited Monday, Oct. 13. The team did not practice Monday, but was required to provide the status of injured players as if they had practiced.
Huddle Up: Decker played Sunday after sitting out Week 5 and was productive, catching 6 of his 10 targets for 54 yards and a TD. He appeared to get through the game without aggravating his injury and figures to be ready to face Darrelle Revis and the Pats on Thursday night.
Jace Amaro - TEPosted 10/13/14 10:41pm ET
New York Jets TE Jace Amaro (knee) would have been limited Monday, Oct. 13. The team did not practice Monday, but was required to provide the status of injured players if they had practiced.
Huddle Up: The rookie had a season-high 10 catches for 68 yards and his first NFL TD in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. He was targeted a team-high 12 times and is definitely a player on the upswing considering he entered the contest with 14 catches for 144 yards.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 10/10/14 4:13pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) is questionable for the team's Week 6 game.
Huddle Up: Decker has been a limited practice participant all week and appears certain to be a game-time call Sunday morning. Even if he does play, though, start him at your own risk.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 10/9/14 5:56pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: That's 2 straight days of limited work for Decker, who's hoping to return and play Sunday against his former team. Fantasy GMs, however, should start him with caution as the hammy could act up again at any time.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 10/8/14 2:05pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) was in pads for practice Wednesday, Oct. 8, but did not participate in position drills. Decker ran sprints and did some cutting on the sidelines. Decker is expected to play in Week 6 unless he suffers a setback.
Huddle Up: The WR's fantasy owners are going to have closely monitor the proceedings and practice reports this week as his hammy hasn't been able to live up to hopes and expectations in recent weeks, including this past Sunday when he sat out the loss in San Diego.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 10/8/14 8:49pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) has a 'pretty good' chance of returning to action in Week 6 against the Denver Broncos after missing Week 5.
Huddle Up: It's a good news, bad news situation for Decker if he plays. The good news is the Jets will likely have to throw the ball a lot this week. The bad news is the current state of who is throwing him the ball. Decker will be a low end WR2 this week against Denver if he's active.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 10/6/14 10:36am ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith missed a team meeting Saturday, Oct. 4, and said he was confused by the three-hour time change, according to a source. Smith was benched in Week 5 and had a big time-management blunder in the game. However, he will start in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Business as usual for the Jets. Hey, it's not like Mike Vick came in and set the world on fire in relief of Smith during the shutout loss to the Chargers.
