RB - NYJ
Week 14 Outlook
Tevin Coleman received 11 carries, which was 10 more than any other Jets' running back. He finished with 58 scoreless yards. He also received four targets and caught three of them for 19 yards.
Following the IR announcement for rookie, Michael Carter, many expected Ty Johnson to become the lead back, but that hasn't happened. In Week 13, Coleman was also highly involved in the passing game. The utilization he saw this week was a positive step for Coleman's fantasy prospects. He will most likely be relegated to a backup role once Carter returns, but until then, fantasy managers can treat Coleman as an RB3/4 who likely needs a touchdown to finish with a good fantasy performance.
Tevin Coleman received 16 carries that he took for a modest 67 scoreless yards. He received three targets, catching two of them for three yards.
Coleman was signed in the off-season to be the Jets' No.1 runner, until at least Michael Carter could take over. Over the past few weeks, that's exactly what happened, but when Carter went on IR, it opened the door for Coleman to be relevant again. Most fantasy managers were expecting Ty Johnson to inherit a bigger workload, but the coaching staff went back to their offseason acquisition. Despite the positive development, Coleman is nothing more than a desperation play at running back during Carter's IR stint.
New York Jets running back Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.
Coleman will return to action after missing the last three weeks due to a hamstring injury. He was a full participant in Friday's practice and will play in Sunday's game against the Bills. The 28-year-old has taken a backseat in the Jets backfield to Michael Carter and Ty Johnson. He is expected to be worked into the rotation but won't see a heavy workload. Carter is a boom-or-bust flex option in very deep-leagues, and 63rd among all running backs in the latest FantasyPros expert consensus rankings.
Jets coach Robert Saleh expects RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) to play in Week 10 against the Bills.
Coleman has missed a couple of weeks due to a hamstring injury, but he looks ready to return against Buffalo. Michael Carter was seeing additional usage with Coleman sidelined, so it remains to be seen how his return will affect the rookie. Coleman himself isn't a fantasy option at this time.
Tevin Coleman was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Good news for Tevin Coleman to get back healthy and on the field. However, Michael Carter and Ty Johnson have taken over the backfield with the majority of touches so even if Coleman does play in Week 10 the fantasy production should be minimal for Coleman.
