New York Jets

AFC East

Fantasy Impact: Uzomah, who was inactive last week, will be the Jets' clear No. 2 tight end upon his return. Tyler Conklin has looked solid atop the depth chart through two weeks, totaling 10 catches, 56 yards, and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Davis has formed a strong rapport with Joe Flacco, amassing eight catches, 160 yards, and one touchdown. The Jets hope he can suit up as they look for their second consecutive win, but if he's inactive, Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore should do a fine job leading the passing attack.

Fantasy Impact: Ian Rapoport reported that Wilson is expected to ramp up his participation in practice this week and that starts with a limited practice on Wednesday. Joe Flacco has been more than serviceable for the Jets offense through two weeks, but it was known that Wilson would take over undercenter once he is healthy.

Jets D/ST allowed 30 points while collecting one sack and one interception in New York’s 31-30 comeback victory over the Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The Jets’ sole interception came on their final play as they picked off Jacoby Brissett to seal the comeback victory. This win was on the offense scoring 14 unanswered points in the final 1:22 of the game but the special teams came up big with an onside kick recovery late. Unfortunately for fantasy managers, that isn’t fantasy relevant. Look elsewhere for D/ST help, especially with the buzz saw of a schedule New York has, at least until they show more fantasy scoring prowess.

Greg Zuerlein made his only field goal attempt from 57 yards and was 4-for-4 on extra points in New York’s 31-30 comeback victory over the Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Zuerlein connected on a 57-yard field goal to tie the game at 17-17 early in the 4th quarter and added four extra points. Zuerlein finished with a nine-point kicking day despite scoring just two points in the first three quarters. Suddenly, the Jets offense looks capable of sustaining a relevant fantasy kicker, and managers who drafted Zuerlein should at least hold on and see how he does against the Bengals in Week 3 if they still considering a change.

Tyler Conklin caught 6-of-9 targets for 40 yards in New York’s 31-30 comeback victory over the Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Conklin’s nine targets were second on the team only to Garrett Wilson’s 14 but his 40 yards were good for only 4th. Flacco used Conklin as a security blanket at times in Week 2 and the new Jet tight end responded with a double-digit PPR performance. At a shallow fantasy position like tight end, days like these can be like gold, and managers in search of tight end help should take a look at Conklin, especially as long as Joe Flacco is at the Jets’ helm.

Braxton Berrios rushed twice for 22 yards in New York’s 31-30 comeback victory over the Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Berrios was not targeted in the passing game in Week 2 after seeing six targets in Week 1. Berrios did get two carries for 22, including a 19-yard scamper. Berrios gained 91 yards on three kick returns and a punt return for managers in leagues that count return yards, which is the only type of league he is relevant in so far this season. Berrios’ true value will come for managers with the Jets D/ST when he finally breaks a return for a touchdown this season. Managers in need of receiving help should look elsewhere for the time being.

Garrett Wilson caught 8-of-14 targets for 102 yards and two touchdowns in New York’s 31-30 comeback victory over the Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson had his breakout party in Week 2, turning a whopping 14 targets into 102 yards and two scores, including the game-winner with 22-seconds remaining, despite leaving at with an injury at one point. Wilson showed why the Jets drafted him 10th overall this year and why he is arguably the best receiver to come out of a loaded draft. Wilson clearly has a rapport with Joe Flacco, connecting on 12-of-22 targets for 154 yards and two touchdowns this season with the majority of that coming in Week 2. Wilson is still available in a ton of leagues and managers should scoop him up off waivers if they are in one of those leagues. Wilson is going to be a problem for opposing defenses this season as long as he stays healthy.

Elijah Moore caught 3-of-5 targets for 41 yards and rushed once for minus-6 yards in New York’s 31-30 comeback victory over the Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Moore tied for third in targets and finished a distant third in yardage among all Jets in Week 2. It was an even more disappointing week for fantasy managers who drafted Moore expecting more of his breakout performances from 2021, especially with Joe Flacco at the helm who he had been a part of said breakout. Through the first two games, Moore has caught 8-of-12 targets for just 90 yards and also has minus-6 rushing yards on one attempt. It has not been an ideal start to the season for Moore’s fantasy managers but his ADP means he deserves at least one or two more weeks against a reeling Bengals’ defense that just allowed Cooper Rush to beat them. See what Week 3 brings before making a decision on Moore unless you have a clear-cut replacement.

Michael Carter rushed for 23 yards on seven carries and caught 5-of-5 targets for 27 yards in New York’s 31-30 comeback victory over the Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Carter continues to start for New York and out-touched Breece Hall 12 to 8 but Hall out-gained him 60 to 50 and found paydirt as well. Carter will continue to split backfield worth as RB1/1A with Breece Hall but there appears to be enough fantasy production to go around so far for the Jets’ offense this season, especially as receiving backs with Joe Flacco who loves to check down to his running backs.

Category: Game Recaps

Breece Hall rushed for 50 yards on seven carries and caught his only target for 10 yards and a touchdown in New York’s 31-30 comeback victory over the Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Hall scored his first NFL touchdown and produced his second straight double-digit fantasy performance i(n PPR formats) to begin his career. Hall has turned 23 touches into 152 yards and a touchdown through two weeks, catching 7-of-10 targets. Hall’s Week 2 touchdown capped off his day on Sunday and New York continues to waste no time getting the rookie heavily involved in the offense.

Joe Flacco completed 26-of-44 passes for 307 yards with four touchdowns and one lost fumble in New York’s 31-30 comeback victory over the Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Flacco threw for 300+ and four touchdowns and led New York from 13-down with 1:55 to play in one of his most fantasy-relevant games since his days in Baltimore. After questions of whether or not Flacco should even start in Week 2, he goes into Week 3 leaving no doubt. Don’t look now but there could be a quarterback controversy brewing in New York with Zach Wilson (knee) expected back in the coming weeks.

Denzel Mims inactive for Week 2

Fantasy Impact: Another week, another game where Mims is a healthy scratch. If he remains on the Jets' roster for the entire season, it would be a mild surprise, but either way, there's almost no chance he will offer anything for fantasy purposes. Move on from him in all but the deepest of dynasty leagues.

Duane Brown (shoulder) has been placed on IR and aims to return as soon as Week 5. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brown is dealing with a shoulder injury he sustained earlier this preseason, and it's serious enough that he will miss at least a few weeks because of it. He has been a very durable player over the course of his career, and he will look to return soon and play through it rather than get surgery done on it. This obviously is bad news for Zach Wilson and the Jets' RB's, and we'll see if the team has a viable backup option in line to fill in during the veteran's absence.

Fantasy Impact: Curry landed on IR with a hamstring injury and will miss the first four games of the season. The Jets signed Marcell Harris to fill his spot on the roster.

Fantasy Impact: Coleman was on the roster bubble with the performance of undrafted rookie Zonovan Knight in training camp. Coleman will now look to find a place on another roster before the season opens next week.

Chris Streveler is expected to be released by the New York Jets on Tuesday. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Streveler has struggled to stay on an NFL roster consistently throughout his young career, and he will once again find himself on the open market. He had a good preseason for the Jets, leading them to an unbeaten record, and that may help him to get an opportunity with a new team. There was never much opportunity for him to surpass Joe Flacco or Mike White on the depth chart for the backup job, but he may have done enough to earn himself another chance in the NFL.

La'Mical Perine was waived by the New York Jets Monday. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Perine only say eight carries in four games with the Jets in 2021. The former fourth-round pick will likely get an opportunity with a team in need of RB depth. Perine should remain on the waiver wire in fantasy leagues this season.

Mike White completed 13-of-17 passes for 170 yards and two touchdowns in the Jets’ 31-27 win against the Giants in Sunday’s preseason finale.

Fantasy Impact: White orchestrated a touchdown drive on his first possession in relief of Joe Flacco on Sunday. White connected with Braxton Berrios (21-yards) and Jeff Smith (19-yards) for his two touchdown passes which took the Jets from a 10-3 deficit to a 17-10 halftime lead. Flacco will start Week 1 if Zach Wilson is not ready but White looked more ready to play on Sunday. White’s fantasy relevance would only come from an unexpectedly extended absence from Wilson and ineffectiveness from Flacco and even then he would be most useful in DFS formats.

Eddy Pineiro was released by the Jets Tuesday ahead of the 4 p.m. deadline for roster cuts. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Releasing Pineiro leaves veteran kicker Greg Zeurlein as the lone kicker on the Jets’ roster. Pineiro converted on all eight field goal attempts in five games with the Jets in 2021. The 26-year-old may get another look with a team before the start of the regular season.
