  Jets | Joe Flacco out minimal time    Sat Aug 8, 01:00 PM

New York Jets QB Joe Flacco (neck) is expected to just miss one or two games this season. He has his final checkup in September.

Footballguys view: Flacco is going to work as the primary backup to Sam Bradford when healthy. He looked bad as a starter for the Broncos in 2019 before his neck injury. Flacco is now at the backup phase of his career.

  Jets | Josh Doctson put on reserve list    Thu Aug 6, 05:28 PM

Updating a previous story, New York Jets WR Josh Doctson was placed on the Reserve/Opt-Out list Thursday, Aug. 6.

Footballguys view: Doctson was a first-round pick for Washington in the 2016 NFL draft but has bounced around the league. He played one game for the Vikings in 2019 and was no lock for the 53-man roster with the Jets.

  Jets | Competition for Denzel Mims?    Wed Aug 5, 09:54 PM

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims' lack of reps during the abbreviated offseason could force general manager Joe Douglas to add a veteran receiver before the start of the season, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: This is something to watch as the team goes through training camp. Mims is a talented receiver but the rookie has some catching up to do because of the abbreviated offseason. We love Mims upside as a pass-catcher in the pros. He's got a fine size/speed combination and his 'my ball' mentality might be the best in his draft class. We'll see if Mims can show enough in camp to prevent the Jets from adding another veteran to the room.

  Jets | Le'Veon Bell ready to play    Wed Aug 5, 01:39 PM

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is in great shape and is extremely motivated to play this season, according to head coach Adam Gase.

Footballguys view: Bell is motivated and has been working out like a mad man according to reports. He's set to be the centerpiece of the Jets offense and Fantasy GMs are looking for him to have a bounce-back season. It's been a few years since Bell produce at the expected level. He's got a current ADP of RB20 (3.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Jets | Quincy Enunwa released    Mon Aug 3, 04:34 PM

New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa was released Monday, Aug. 3.

Footballguys view: No surprise here as the veteran receiver was put on the PUP list back in May. Enunwa has made just 12 NFL appearances since the end of the 2016 season. It will be difficult for him to latch on with a new team at this point in his career.

New York Jets QB Joe Flacco (neck) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, July 30.

Footballguys view: This was expected when the Jets signed Flacco. His status for the start of the regular season is unknown as he continues to recover from his neck surgery. If need be, Flacco could be placed on the PUP at the start of the regular season which would cause him to be out for the first six weeks.

  Jets | Jamal Adams traded by Jets    Sat Jul 25, 04:36 PM

New York Jets S Jamal Adams was traded to the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, July 25, in exchange for S Bradley McDougald, a 2021 first-round draft choice, a 2021 third-round draft choice and a 2022 first-round draft choice. The Seahawks will also receive a 2022 fourth-round pick in the trade.

Footballguys view: Adams wanted to be traded for some time and frankly couldn't mesh with head coach Adam Gase any longer. The Jets trade away the superstar safety but they get a haul in return. This will set them up nicely for the future if they can make these picks pay off.

  Jets | High ceiling for Chris Herndon?    Fri Jul 24, 09:16 PM

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon has a chance to become QB Sam Darnold's 'Travis Kelce or Zach Ertz' in 2020, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Let's not go crazy with the Kelce/Ertz comparisons here. Yes, Herndon does have upside -- he always has because of his athletic profile and role on the team as the starting tight end. We'd feel better about Herndon and the rest of the Jets offense is they were not under the guidance of Adam Gase. Herndon is a TE2 with TE1 upside you can get late in your drafts.

  Jets | NYJ willing to move Jamal Adams    Fri Jul 24, 09:56 AM

New York Jets S Jamal Adams confirmed New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas said the team would move Adams if the right deal were offered. However, Adams doesn't have permission to discuss trades with other teams. Adams said that his problem with head coach Adam Gase is that he doesn't have a relationship with everyone on the team. 'I don't feel like he's the right leader for this organization to reach the Promised Land,' Adams said. 'As a leader, what really bothers me is that he doesn't have a relationship with everybody in the building. He doesn't address the team. If there's a problem in the locker room, he lets another coach address the team. If we're playing (bad) and we're losing, he doesn't address the entire team as a group at halftime. He'll walk out of the locker room and let another coach handle it.'

Footballguys view: Adams was very candid in this piece and it doesn't paint a pretty picture. The Jets are probably asking too much for Adams in trades unless a team wants to give up something similar to what the Jaguars got for Jalen Ramsey, which included multiple firsts.

  Jets | NY Jets lock up Ashtyn Davis    Thu Jul 23, 10:11 PM

New York Jets third-round draft pick S Ashtyn Davis signed his four-year rookie contract Thursday, July 23. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Davis could be a starter sooner than later with the news that Marcus Maye is not exactly an Adam Gase favorite. Davis is hyperathletic and a late bloomer who could end up being one of the best safeties in this draft. He can also provide value in the return game.

  Jets | Jabari Zuniga reaches agreement    Mon Jul 20, 06:03 PM

New York Jets third-round draft choice DE Jabari Zuniga agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Jets Monday, July 20, worth $4.73 million.

Footballguys view: Zuniga was a quiet but productive player in college at Florida. He's known for freakish strength and the ability to disrupt the passer from the interior of the line. Zuniga needs to win early with his hands to be productive but he's adept at hand-fighting and plays with a relentless motor.

  Jets | Four-year contract for James Morgan    Mon Jul 20, 05:20 PM

New York Jets fourth-round draft choice QB James Morgan signed a four-year contract with the Jets Monday, July 20, worth $4 million.

Footballguys view: We'll keep an eye on Morgan in deep dynasty formats. The FIU passer has a rocket arm and loves to attack a defense downfield. His childhood idol was Brett Favre, and he certainly has a gunslinger's mentality as a quarterback. Morgan has little control as a passer and will take way too many chances with the football. His mechanics need work but he's a highly intelligent player with upside to develop into a starter someday. That's worth monitoring if your dynasty league is deep enough.

  Jets | Jamal Adams expected to appear at camp    Sun Jul 19, 10:43 AM

New York Jets S Jamal Adams is expected to report to training camp despite his ongoing contract dispute, according to Bleacher Report's Connor Rogers. However, he is still seeking a contract extension or trade before the beginning of the season.

Footballguys view: The Jets appear to be set on keeping Adams through at least this year, if not the end of his rookie deal. His tune could change in 2021 if Adam Gase is gone, but the trade market could also change if a team sees Adams as the missing piece during the season. For now expect Adams to be starting against Buffalo in Week 1.

  Jets | Mekhi Becton top option at LT    Mon Jul 13, 05:27 PM

New York Jets OT Mekhi Becton will enter training camp as the leading candidate for the starting left tackle job.

Footballguys view: The Jets will have a lot of change on the offensive line this year. Becton is massive and athletic, and he might have the highest ceiling of any of the top four offensive tackles off of the ball, all of which went in the top 14 picks.

  Jets | NYJ unlikely to pursue top DE free agents    Sun Jul 12, 01:32 PM

Free-agent DEs Jadeveon Clowney (Seahawks), Everson Griffen (Vikings) and DE Markus Golden (Giants) likely will not receive interest from the New York Jets because the team wants to move their unspent salary cap space to next season, in the opinion of the New York Post's Brian Costello.

Footballguys view: The Jets are still looking to the future and don't want to invest to upgrade the leagues' most underwhelming edge rush group. Golden is likely to return to the Giants, Clowney could still end up with the Seahawks, but Griffen is almost certainly not coming back to the Vikings.

  Jets | Shyheim Carter may be option at CB    Sat Jul 11, 04:45 PM

New York Jets S Shyheim Carter could receive snaps at cornerback in addition to safety during training camp in hopes of making the final roster. Carter likely will be a practice squad candidate if he does not make the team.

Footballguys view: Carter's path to making the team is clearer at cornerback than safety. His lack of top-end athleticism caused him to fall out of the draft. He was lauded by Nick Saban as one of the most knowledgeable players on the defense and he played every position in the secondary.

  Jets | Jared Hilbers could make roster    Sat Jul 11, 04:26 PM

New York Jets OT Jared Hilbers has a decent chance to make the final roster because the team does not have a lot of depth at offensive tackle.

Footballguys view: Hilbers has experience starting at right and left tackle in college and was rated 25th among college tackles last year by PFF. He is set to be the team's fourth tackle, which is a good path to a roster spot in a season when depth could be more important than ever.

  Jets | Breshad Perriman excelled in 2019    Fri Jul 10, 02:40 PM

New York Jets WR Breshad Perriman ranked second among wide receivers in 2019 with a 90.2 Pro Football Focus grade versus man coverage.

Footballguys view: Perriman didn't get a chance to shine until December when Chris Godwin and Mike Evans were both sidelined, and he did rise to the occasion. Robby Anderson was inconsistent in the field stretcher role last year, but Perriman is a lot cheaper in drafts than Anderson was at this time. Keep him on your late round target list, especially in best ball leagues.

New York Jets fourth-round draft choice RB La'Mical Perine signed a four-year contract with the Jets Thursday, July 9. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Perine is going to be behind Le'Veon Bell and maybe Frank Gore this year, but the Jets don't have a long term solution at running back on the roster. He has excellent passing down skills and could play a small role this year.

  Jets | Chris Herndon in a bad spot?    Sat Jul 4, 09:27 PM

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon could underwhelm in 2020 because of the way head coach Adam Gase utilizes the tight end position, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com. When Gase was with the Miami Dolphins from 2016 to 2018, his tight ends finished with a league-low 150 catches in that span.

Footballguys view: Herndon will also share with Ryan Griffin, who was solid in Herndon's absence and signed to an extension during the season. While he still has some dynasty upside, Herndon probably isn't the answer at tight end this year in redraft leagues.

New York Jets LB Avery Williamson (knee) will have a chance to earn a spot on the final roster during the preseason, according to inside linebackers coach Frank Bush.

  Jets | Jamal Adams' rift with head coach    Thu Jun 25, 09:07 AM

New York Jets S Jamal Adams' rift with the New York Jets stems over his contract, but head coach Adam Gase also is a major factor in the issue. Adams does not want to play for Gase anymore for myriad reasons, according to sources. According to this and other reports there are few players who respond well to their head coach. Some team sources believe that QBs Sam Darnold and David Fales are among the few returning players that actually tolerate Gase.

Footballguys view: This is certainly a make-or-break year for Gase who has now failed with two franchises (Jets, Dolphins) as their head coach. He's been riding the cache he built as the OC for a Peyton Manning Broncos team, but their success should have been attributed more to the future Hall of Fame quarterback and not as much for Gase.

  Jets | Breshad Perriman excited about offense    Wed Jun 24, 05:59 PM

New York Jets WR Breshad Perriman said he believes the Jets can have a dangerous offense this upcoming season. He said he worked out with QB Sam Darnold earlier in the offseason and is looking forward to the season.

Footballguys view: Perriman has the speed to take the top off a defense. With a strong rushing attack, that should lead to some play-action opportunities for the wide receivers in the Jets passing attack.

  Jets | Denzel Mims agrees to $5.4M deal    Fri Jun 19, 02:03 PM

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims on Friday, June 19, agreed to a four-year, $5.4 million contract, according to a source. The deal includes $3 million in guarantees.

Footballguys view: Mims should have a chance to be a starter with a good camp and preseason. Josh Doctson and Vyncint Smith are his main competitors for playing time and Breshad Perriman should be the starter on the other side of the formation. He has great size, speed, and athleticism, but needs refinement as a route runner.

  Jets | Jamison Crowder productive in slot    Sun Jun 14, 02:06 PM

New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder caught 58 passes while lined up as the slot receiver during the 2019 season, which ranked fourth among wide receivers.

Footballguys view: Crowder is the only returning wide receiver from last year's top three for the Jets, so he should easily lead the team in receptions this year. His production came in spurts last year and he was inconsistent, but Crowder is still underrated at his current ADP.

  Jets | C.J. Mosley may be eased back    Sun Jun 14, 01:23 PM

New York Jets LB C.J. Mosley (groin) could be eased back into practice during the early part of training camp even though he has been cleared for football activities, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Rich Cimini.

Footballguys view: The Jets defense was a better unit with Mosley out there last year, even though it was only a partial game. He should be considered a strong LB1 in IDP leagues even though he carries some additional injury risk after missing most of 2019.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold is working out with WR Denzel Mims this weekend.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the chemistry they build in these workouts translates quickly onto the football field. Mims was a speedy receiver with great 'my ball' mentality and body control in college. He should be a fine weapon for Darnold in 2020, perhaps as the no.1 receiver if he can get up to speed.
