New York Jets

AFC East

The New York Jets lost a tough road game on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by the final score of 15-10. The Jets' D/ST couldn't generate many turnovers, having just one sack, one interception, and one forced fumble in the loss.

Fantasy Impact: In a game where the Jets were favored to win on the road against a slumping Bucs team and facing their former QB, they came up short. The Jets' D/ST was projected to be a good bye-week option for fantasy teams looking to stream a defense, but they came up flat and was mostly disappointing. Leave them on the waiver wire, especially in a tough Week 12 matchup against the Carolina Panthers at home.

Chandler Catanzaro went 1-for-1 on field goal attempts and 1-for-1 on extra point attempts in the Jets’ Week 10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: The Jets offense struggled to move the ball effectively against the Buccaneers Sunday afternoon and Catanzaro had a disappointing fantasy day as a result. With the Jets on bye in Week 11, Catanzaro can be safely dropped in all leagues for the time being, but could warrant a streamline start against the Carolina Panthers when the Jets return from bye in Week 12.

Chad Hansen caught three of four targets for 33 yards in the Jets’ Week 10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Hansen was pressed into action for the first time this season due to Jeremy Kerley’s four-game suspension and played surprisingly well in his expanded role on offense. While the rookie’s production is an encouraging sign for the Jets receiving corps, Hansen won’t have any fantasy relevance going forward, especially when Kerley returns from suspension.

Elijah McGuire was busier than usual on Sunday, rushing for 22 yards on eight carries and catching four passes out of the backfield for 36 yards.

Fantasy Impact: McGuire got the extra playing time with Matt Forte missing the game due to injury and spelled Bilal Powell throughout the game. But for fantasy purposes, he had a better game than Powell, especially in PPR formats. If Forte cannot return to action in Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers, look for McGuire to get another chance to showcase what he can do. McGuire would be a low-end flex option for PPR formats if you are desperate for help and Forte is out.

ArDarius Stewart had one catch on one target for zero yards and had one rushing attempt for four yards in the Jets’ Week 10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Even with Jeremy Kerley’s suspension opening the door for him, Stewart was unable to produce in the passing game despite his increased snap count against the Buccaneers Sunday afternoon and was outshined by fellow rookie receiver Chad Hansen. With Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse seeing the majority of wide receiver targets in the Jets offense, Stewart has no fantasy value whatsoever.

Jermaine Kearse caught four of eight targets for 35 yards in the Jets’ Week 10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: It’s the fourth week in a row that Kearse has been held under 40 yards receiving, and he has clearly taken a backseat to both Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Robby Anderson in New York’s passing attack. While his lack of production in recent weeks is concerning, Kearse is still seeing a surprisingly high amount of targets to warrant a start in deep PPR leagues. Kearse should be considered a desperation WR3/Flex play against the Carolina Panthers when the Jets return from bye in Week 12.

Bilal Powell had a rough game on Sunday, as he only managed to run for 30 yards on 10 carries, with his longest run of the day going for 21 yards. Powell also caught one pass out of the backfield for just six yards in the loss with no touchdowns and one fumble lost.

Fantasy Impact: BP and the rest of the Jets' running game was flat on the road, which isn't a good sign. In a game where Matt Forte was out due to injury and Powell was heavily projected to run a muck on a struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers team, he just couldn't get anything going. Look for him to bounce back when the team returns from their Week 11 bye and play the Carolina Panthers at home in Week 12.

Robby Anderson caught four of seven targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in the Jets’ Week 10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Despite two drops and inconsistent play from quarterback Josh McCown Sunday afternoon, Anderson rewarded his fantasy owners with a 38-yard touchdown grab to pull the Jets within a score in the dying seconds of the fourth quarter. Anderson has now scored in four straight games and is clearly the number one option in the Jets receiving corps. The second-year man out of Temple has earned WR2/WR3 status going forward and should be worth a start against the Carolina Panthers when the Jets return from bye in Week 12.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught six of his nine targets for 67 yards in the Jets' Week 10 loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: There was good news and bad news for Austin Seferian-Jenkins, the bad news being that he has not scored a touchdown in his last 3 games. The good news is that Seferian-Jenkins got a season-high 67 yards against the Buccaneers. The Jets have a bye on Week 11.

Josh McCown struggles in loss

Josh McCown completed 23 of his 39 passes for 262 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Jets' Week 10 loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: The whole game was a struggle for both offenses as both teams scored their only touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Josh McCown, saved his day a little bit, as he threw a touchdown to Robby Anderson with less than a minute left to play. Jets will have a bye next week.

Fantasy Impact: Forte had his best game of the season last week against the Bills, but complained of swelling in his knee this week and couldn't practice. His absence is a huge boost to Bilal Powell, who becomes a solid RB2 play, and Elijah McGuire, who should get plenty of work, too.

Jeremy Kerley saw no targets in the Jets’ Week 9 win over the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact: Kerley saw only six snaps against the Bills before leaving the game with an ankle injury in the first quarter. With an injured ankle and a possible suspension looming over his head, Kerley has little-to-no fantasy value at this point and probably won’t have any going forward as long as Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse continue to produce.

Eric Tomlinson caught his one target for 20 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 8 loss.

Fantasy Impact: Eric Tomlinson only had one target and put it to use as he scored a touchdown. He still should be on waivers as he barely on the field and receiving passes.

Travaris Cadet got into the mix in the Jets’ Week 6 home division loss against the New England Patriots, as he grabbed three catches for 26 yards with a long catch of 13 yards. Cadet also managed to rush for three yards on just one carry in the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Cadet got some burn in this game, and actually played well as a receiver out of the backfield. But don’t expect this type of production every week, as he is the fourth RB on the depth chart and needs an injury or two to really be considered relevant for fantasy purposes. Leave Cadet on the waiver wire and don’t overthink this one. Also, do not play him in any DFS contests.

Will Tye silent in loss

Jets TE Will Tye had one reception for four yards in the Jets' Week 2 loss.

Fantasy Impact: Tye is going to go deeper down the depth chart as Austin Seferian-Jenkins is coming back from his two-game suspension. He is simply not fantasy relevant.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting New York Jets quarterback Bryce Petty (knee) is suffering from a Grade 1 MCL sprain and should be ready for the start of the regular season. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Schefter is adding that Petty could be ready to play in Thursday's preseason finale. However, I'm not sure I'm risking it if I'm the Jets. Petty is proving to be New York's most reliable signal caller entering 2017 and barring a setback, he is primed to step into the starting job sooner rather than later. Josh McCown will start for the Jets in Week 1.

Christian Hackenberg went 12-for-21 with 126 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in a 32-31 loss.

Fantasy Impact: Hackenberg did end up throwing a touchdown, but that was only because Bryce Petty got hurt and he was facing the backup defense. When he played against the starting defense it was very bad, he had two interceptions, both of them being returned for touchdowns. He is going to be the backup for the Jets, so do not draft him.

Marcus Murphy rushed for 15 yards on three carries on Saturday night as the Jets lost on the road in Week Two of the preseason. All of his playing time came in the second half as all of the starters were already out of the game.

Fantasy Impact: Murphy is fighting for a roster spot on a Jets team that figures to have a less-than-average offensive line and will be playing from behind most of the season. Furthermore, he has no real fantasy value in DFS or in season-long leagues, as he may not make the team by the end of the preseason. It would be wise (and obvious) to leave him off of your fantasy rosters until further notice.

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles told the media wide receiver Lucky Whitehead (foot) is dealing with a broken foot and will miss an extended period as a result. (Source: Jets on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: New York's woes at wide receiver continue. Whitehead suffered a broken foot and will miss an extended period of time as a result. Although it is uncertain whether or not he will need surgery, his outlook for 2017 appears grim.

Romar Morris rushed for 20 yards on a team-high 12 carries during the Jets' preseason victory against the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night. Morris got plenty of opportunities to showcase what he was made of throughout the night, but was mostly uninspiring, as his longest run of the night was for just six yards.

Fantasy Impact: For what it is worth, Morris could not break free when given the opportunity against a third-string defensive unit for the Titans, as he often missed the hole and showed very little burst. Morris has no fantasy value for the 2017-2018 season, and should not be rostered. He should also be avoided in daily fantasy.
