Jets fourth-round pick Jalen Saunders was involved in a one-car accident on his way to the team's training facility on Friday morning. He was taken to the hospital and is being monitored as a precaution, and the Jets have said that the wide receiver won't be travelling to Cincinnati for their second preseason game against the Bengals on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact:

Health-wise, Saunders will more than likely be okay following the accident, so it shouldn't have much of a bearing on his season, other than him missing out on a preseason game which is a chance to get some playing time and experience. His fantasy value as a wide receiver is low, as his primary role on the team should he make the roster is expected to be as a punt returner.
