Bilal Powell - RBPosted 10/27/16 3:11pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (toe) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 27.
Huddle Up: Powell took a backseat to Matt Forte again last week, but Forte could be limited in Week 8. Powell's fantasy ceiling will always be stinted if and as long as Forte plays, but Powell is still a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 option in PPR leagues.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 10/27/16 3:06pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall (foot) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 27.
Huddle Up: It will be surprising if Marshall doesn't suit up for Week 8. Keep an eye on Joe Haden's status too. If Haden is sidelined then Marshall will have an easier time getting open. Even if Haden plays, Marshall is a mid-range WR1 consideration.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/27/16 2:59pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 27.
Huddle Up: It's certainly discouraging that Forte went from being limited yesterday to not practicing today. If he misses practice again tomorrow then there is cause for real concern. If he does play he has one of the better matchups of the week against a Cleveland Browns defense that is surrendering over 100 yards and one touchdown per game to running backs.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/26/16 3:04pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Forte had one of his best games of the season in Week 7 and will continue to receive most of the playing time at running back. He will have a favorable matchup in Week 8 and can be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy league.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 10/26/16 2:58pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (toe) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Powell is in any danger of missing the team's Week 8 game. He has received decent playing time this season and could be a flex option in deeper leagues if he plays.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 10/26/16 2:57pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Marshall has dealt with the injury over the past few weeks but has been able to play, so he should have a good chance to play in Week 8. He likely will receive a solid amount of targets if he plays and can be a No. 2 receiver for owners.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 10/26/16 9:22pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall will meet the Cleveland Browns in Week 8. The Browns have yielded 285.7 yards per game through the air, ranking 29th in the NFL. The Browns have given up an AFC-high 29 pass plays of 20 or more yards.
Huddle Up: Marshall is a solid WR1 in all fantasy formats. At a minimum he should hit the century mark with at least one visit to the end zone.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 10/26/16 9:19pm ET
New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will face the Cleveland Browns in Week 8 with QB Geno Smith (knee) out for the season. Fitzpatrick gets a chance to shred a Browns pass defense allowing 285.7 yards per game through the air, ranking 29th in the NFL. They are also tied for the league lead with 18 pass touchdowns allowing with an AFC-high 29 pass plays of 20 or more yards.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick has been a turnover machine, but the Browns have managed just six interceptions in seven games. If ever there was a week to stream Fitzpatrick, Week 8 is the time. He is also a sensible DFS option if you want to save salary to spread across other positions.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/26/16 9:32pm ET
In Week 8, New York Jets RB Matt Forte will face a Cleveland Browns rush defense that ranks 31st in the NFL. The Browns have allowed 139.9 yards per game with seven rushing touchdowns. The Browns are also 29th in the league in pass defense, giving up 285.7 yards per game with 18 touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Forte could be ready for his biggest performance since finding the end zone three times against the Buffalo Bills in mid-September. He is a must-start in all fantasy formats this weekend despite some shaky games recently.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 10/25/16 11:07pm ET
Updating previous reports, New York Jets QB Geno Smith (knee) did suffer a torn ACL, according to head coach Todd Bowles, and will not play again this season. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will start in Week 8.
Huddle Up: If for some reason you picked up Smith before last week you can go ahead and drop him. Fitzpatrick, meanwhile, could have at least a little short-term value with a matchup against the Cleveland Browns on tap.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 10/23/16 11:19am ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith (knee) suffered a knee injury in Week 7 and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: The severity of Smith's injury is not known, so owners will need to look for an update on his status after the game. Ryan Fitzpatrick would regain the starting job if Smith is out for an extended period of time but should not be a starting option in fantasy leagues.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 10/23/16 3:02pm ET
New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 9-for-14 for 120 yards and one touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7. Fitzpatrick entered the game when QB Geno Smith (knee) left with an injury.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick may have his starting job back if Smith is sidelined for an extended period of time. He should be considered a No. 2 quarterback at this point.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 10/23/16 3:17pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall caught three passes for 39 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Marshall has been targeted at least eight times in six of the seven games this season but has been held to under 40 yards in three games. Marshall will continue to be the team's No. 1 receiver and should be a weekly starting option for owners.
Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 10/23/16 3:14pm ET
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa caught two passes for 73 yards and one touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Enunwa has been a consistent option for owners this season and will continue to receive a solid amount of targets moving forward. He should be a solid No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/23/16 3:08pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte rushed for 100 yards and one touchdown on 30 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7. He also caught four passes for 54 yards and one touchdown during the game.
Huddle Up: Forte rushed for at least 100 yards for the first time since Week 2 and rushed for a touchdown for the first time since that game. He will continue to receive most of the carries in the running game and can be a No. 2 running back in leagues.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 10/22/16 10:30am ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is not worried about missing any regular-season games next season despite needing surgery on his hip and shoulder.
Huddle Up: Decker is on crutches after undergoing surgery for a torn labrum on his hip, which has delayed the surgery he was originally supposed to have on his shoulder. He expects an eight-month recovery from his shoulder surgery once he is able to have surgery on it, which will certainly put his availability for the start of training camp in jeopardy if it doesn't happen soon. He's obviously a strong WR2 when healthy, but there are too many questions with his health right now to forecast where he will stand next year.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/21/16 12:22pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was able to get in another full practice for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: This basically ensures he'll be able to suit up on Sunday. However, with the Jets offense currently being a mess, and now leaning on Geno Smith at quarterback, owners can't expect Forte to provide his usual production, especially against a stingy Ravens defense. He'll be a low-ceiling RB2 option.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/20/16 12:37pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Forte should continue to be the starting running back but has been losing snaps to Bilal Powell. Forte has rushed for less than 30 yards in two of the last three games and should only be considered as a flex option at this point.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 10/19/16 5:45am ET
Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) had a torn labrum and a lesion in his left hip repaired Tuesday, Oct. 18. Once he's off crutches, he'll have the shoulder surgery, but it's unclear how long that will take. The shoulder surgery will require eight months of recovery, which puts his status for the beginning of the 2017 season up in the air.
Huddle Up: Decker will likely be a boom-or-bust WR3 in drafts next season. However, a lot will depend on who is under center for the Jets. There is a lot to dislike about his draft stock after two major surgeries to recover from.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 10/19/16 8:29am ET
New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has lost the starting quarterback job Wednesday, Oct. 19, according to league sources.
Huddle Up: With the Jets' season likely in shambles, it's probably Geno Smith's job the rest of the way, barring injury. Fitzpatrick can be released in most formats.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 10/19/16 8:28am ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith is expected to be named the starting quarterback Wednesday, Oct. 19, according to league sources.
Huddle Up: The move sends Ryan Fitzpatrick to the bench and rids him of much value to fantasy rosters. The Baltimore Ravens don't pose a huge matchup liability, but Smith has not shown much to suggest he's worth owning in fantasy outside of two-QB leagues.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/19/16 2:57pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: Forte has really disappointed the last few weeks after a hot start to the season. Bilal Powell's usage has increased while Forte may be showing the impact of heavy workloads throughout his career. Even if he's healthy, the Baltimore Ravens have been stellar against the run this year. Forte can't be considered as more than a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/18/16 7:27am ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte played 21 snaps in Week 6 for 39 percent of the offense.
Huddle Up: He's averaging a career-low 3.5 yards per carry and has just 14 catches for 93 yards in six games. That three-touchdown performance looks like an aberration, and he's trending toward the RB3 area.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 10/18/16 1:43pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) underwent hip surgery Tuesday, Oct. 18. Decker is expected to recover in six months. Once Decker sheds his crutches, he'll have another procedure on his injured shoulder. The estimated recovery time for the shoulder surgery is eight months.
Huddle Up: In other words, Decker is a basket case right now. The good news is that he should be healthy and ready in time for offseason activities next year. As for this season, Brandon Marshall will continue to see a plethora of targets, while Quincy Enunwa serves as the No. 2 receiver. Robby Anderson and Jalin Marshall will have expanded roles, but neither of them is reliable enough to warrant starting.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 10/17/16 8:19pm ET
New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched early in the fourth quarter of the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Oct. 17, with his team trailing 28-3. Fitzpatrick completed 16 of his 30 pass attempts for 174 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. QB Geno Smith replaced him.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick has been a turnover machine, and the Jets offense has been anemic in recent weeks with Fitz under center. Head coach Todd Bowles is looking for a spark, and if Smith gives them one it might signal the end of Fitzpatrick's fantasy usefulness even in the deepest of formats.
Quincy Enunwa - WRPosted 10/17/16 9:26pm ET
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa managed three receptions for 42 yards in the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Oct. 17. He was targeted five times.
Huddle Up: Enunwa has filled in nicely with Eric Decker on the sidelines, but he has seen a decrease in receiving yardage in each of the past three games and he hasn't visited the end zone since Week 1. Right now he is only worth using as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 10/17/16 9:25pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall posted three receptions for a game-high 70 yards in the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Oct. 17. He was targeted six times.
Huddle Up: Marshall has 70 or more yards in each of the past three games despite some shaky quarterback play. He remains a must-start fantasy option in all leagues even with the offense struggling as a whole.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 10/17/16 9:24pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte rushed nine times for just 19 yards in the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Oct. 17, and he posted just one catch for three yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Forte exploded for 100 rushing yards and three touchdowns back in Week 2, but it's been all downhill since then. He has 64 total yards from scrimmage or less in each of his past four games, and he hasn't visited the end zone since Buffalo. He is still worth using as a RB2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 7 against Baltimore, but he needs to get untracked in a hurry.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 10/17/16 9:39pm ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith took over in the fourth quarter of the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Oct. 17. He completed four of his six pass attempts for 31 yards with one interception. Smith isn't expected to move into the starting lineup. '(QB Ryan Fitzpatrick) will be back next week,' head coach Todd Bowles said. 'The game was 28-3. There was eight minutes left in the game. We weren't doing anything else. I just wanted to get Smith some reps.'
Huddle Up: It isn't exactly like Smith is a savior. We've seen him before, and he turns it over quite frequently, too, especially on the road. For now, avoid Smith in all fantasy leagues, although he would be worth a look in two-QB leagues if he gets the starting nod.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 10/17/16 9:27pm ET
Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to start in Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens. 'Fitz will be back next week,' head coach Todd Bowles said Monday, Oct. 17. 'The game was 28-3. There was eight minutes left in the game. We weren't doing anything else. I just wanted to get (QB Geno Smith) some reps.'
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick has been a disaster and turnover machine for the Jets. Even if he hangs onto his starting job for a while, at this point he is only worth a look in fantasy leagues which require two starting quarterbacks.
