Jets D/ST gets shredded in Week 2 loss to San Francisco

The New York Jets D/ST recorded an interception and three sacks in the Jets' 31-13 Week 2 loss to the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact

This could've been so much worse. Already without George Kittle and Deebo Samuel, the 49ers lost both Jimmy Garoppolo and Raheem Mostert due to mid-game injuries. New York's defense was barely there while this game was still competitive, and they certainly aren't a fantasy option this season. The Colts are next.

Jets D/ST recovers two fumbles in Week 1 defeat

The New York Jets D/ST recovered two fumbles and registered three sacks in the team's 27-17 Week 1 loss to the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Josh Allen basically handed the defense both of these fumble recoveries. Nevertheless, they still count for fantasy purposes. The Jets defense isn't one to invest in, though. This unit should be avoided in Week 2 against the 49ers.

New York Jets shut down backups in Buffalo

The New York Jets allowed six points and 309 yards of offense in their Week 17 win over the Buffalo Bills. The defense recorded one sack, one fumble recovery, and two interceptions in the contest.

Fantasy Impact

The Jets defense has been able to take advantage of some of their good matchups this season, but they are not one of the league's top units. The Jets have some talent on the defensive side of the ball, so with a few additional pieces via free agency or draft, this defense could be a viable option for 2020.

New York Jets have field day against pair of backups for Steelers

The New York Jets allowed 10 points and 260 yards of offense in their Week 16 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The defense racked up four sacks and two interceptions.

Fantasy Impact

The Jets had one of their strongest outings of the year against the combination of Devlin Hodges and Mason Rudolph in this game. While the Jets are not one of the league's better defense, they have been able to get it done in some plus matchups. Next week, they draw the Bills, who are volatile, but improved in the back half of the season. Owners would be wise to fade the Jets in most formats.

New York Jets carved up by Lamar Jackson and Baltimore Ravens

The New York Jets allowed 42 points and 430 yards of offense in their Thursday night loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15. The Jets defense managed one sack.

Fantasy Impact

The Jets boast a middling defensive unit at best, and no one in their right mind was starting them against the league's most explosive offense. The Jets are in a better spot next week against third-stringer Devlin Hodges and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but still would be a risky start for Week 16.
