New York Jets

This Week Outlook
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the New York Jets are hiring former 49ers DC Robert Saleh to a five-year contract.
The Jets themselves have already made the hire official. Saleh is an enthusiastic defensive mind who was responsible for a dominant San Francisco defense in 2019. Unfortunately, his unit was ravaged by injuries this year, but it didn't kill his future head coach shine. The next order of business for the Jets will be figuring out what to do with both Sam Darnold and the No. 2 overall draft pick.
The New York Jets have fired Adam Gase as their head coach.
The Jets lost to the Patritots in Week 17 to wrap up a 2-14 season that seemed doomed from the start. Gase was a total flop in his two years as New York's head coach. There are a number of candidates who will have interest in this position as it'll come with the No. 2 overall pick in next year's draft. Any new coach will have the chance to draft a potential franchise quarterback and build from scratch.
The New York Jets D/ST totaled four sacks and recovered two fumbles in the team's 23-16 Week 16 win over the Browns.
It was a surprisingly strong defensive performance against Cleveland. Of course, it helped that the Browns were without their entire starting receiver corps. Despite the promising performance, the Jets D/ST will remain a fantasy non-factor in Week 17 against the Patriots.
The New York Jets D/ST recorded an interception, three sacks, and a blocked kick in the team's shocking Week 15 win over the Rams.
Jared Goff turned into "bad Jared Goff" in this one, and it led to the Jets losing control over the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Regardless, the Jets D/ST isn't a fantasy option in Week 16 against the Browns.
The New York Jets D/ST totaled one interception and one sack in the team's 40-3 Week 14 loss to the Seahawks.
There is no need to consider playing the Jets' defense in fantasy football this year. They face the Rams in Week 15.
