RB - NYJ
Let's just call it as it is: Coleman is essentially undrafted at this point in the offseason. He's not great, but he's going to be the starting running back for the Jets when the season begins. As time goes on, I fully expect Michael Carter to push him for that job (he's better than Coleman), but Coleman was brought to New York because he knows the offense. But still, a starting running back should be taken as a top-50 option.
After having an injury riddled season last year with the 49ers, Coleman has made the transition over to the New York Jets. As he reunites with Mike LaFleur, Coleman should be given the starting job to begin the season. He knows the system well and there isn't an entrenched starter above him on the depth chart. Unfortunately, Coleman has proven that he simply can't stay healthy up to this point in his career and he does have some competition on this roster behind him with Michael Carter. You might be able to plug Coleman in as a decent starting option to begin the season, but he'll most likely find his way to the fantasy football waiver wire before too long. My Very Early Projection: 149-567-3 rushing & 28-240-0 receiving.
This should be Michael Carter's job down the stretch, but Coleman has familiarity with the zone-blocking scheme as he carries over with Matt LaFleur, and the line continues to improve around an offense that should be infinitely more explosive with Adam Gase gone and Zach Wilson here. Could be the sneaky biggest winner of the offseason and no one wants him.
Gaining less than 100 yards in a season despite playing eight healthy games is a remarkable achievement for a player who was being drafted in the fifth round as a backup in Atlanta a couple of years ago. Now a free agent, it's hard to see Tevin Coleman getting anything better than a backup role moving forward.
