New York Jets

AFC East

Jamal Adams only recorded five solo tackles and one assisted tackle, as the Jets took a 33-0 beating from the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Adams usually supplements his tackling prowess with secondary stats, such as QB hits, pass breakups, or TFLs but was unable to do so tonight, leaving his fantasy point total a little to be desired. He and the Jets will hit the reset button against a much less formidable opponent, the Jaguars, next week.

C.J. Mosley finished with only three assisted tackles in a 33-0 blowout loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Mosley made his long-awaited return after suffering a groin injury in week one but barely registered on the stat sheet. Despite his inability to record any significant statistical output, a bit of rust was to be expected and he should be back in your lineups come week eight.

Fantasy Impact: Herndon has yet to suit up this season after serving a suspension and then suffering a hamstring injury in practice. He will have a chance to suit up for the team's Week 8 matchup against the Jaguars in Jacksonville.

Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is questionable for Monday's game against the Patriots. (Source: New York Jets on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thomas practiced all week and has a good shot of playing in Monday's Week 7 contest against the Patriots. He caught all four of his targets for a season-high 62 yards in Week 6. Thomas has a tough matchup against a stingy Patriots defense, but he does appear on track to be highly involved in the Jets' plans on offense.

The New York Jets allowed 22 points and 398 yards of offense in their Week 6 win over the Cowboys. The defense recorded just one sack and no turnovers.

Fantasy Impact: The Jets didn't do much to slow down the Cowboys, who have been a strong offense thus far in 2019 in terms of output. The Jets aren't expected to be a powerhouse defense, so their performance should come as no surprise. Stay away in Week 7 when the Jets face Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Sam Ficken perfect in win

By Mark Leipold

Sam Ficken converted all three of his extra point attempts and his lone field goal attempt in the Jets' Week 6 win over the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Ficken has not been a strong option thus far in 2019, but with Sam Darnold back, the Jets look to be a more reliable offense, improving Ficken's outlook. Next week will be tough against the Patriots, but Ficken may be usable beyond that if the Jets keep scoring.

Ryan Griffin caught all three of his targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 6 win over the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin was not heavily targeted, but he found the end zone, and such is the life of a fantasy tight end. Griffin looks to remain the starter for another couple of weeks while Chris Herndon recovers from a hamstring injury, but does not see enough targets to be a usable fantasy option in most weeks.

Jamison Crowder caught six of his nine targets for 98 yards in the Jets' Week 6 win over the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Crowder, who had his best game of 2019 in Week 1 with Sam Darnold active, got back in the fantasy good graces with a strong outing today. If Crowder continues to see strong target volume, he's a viable WR3/Flex play in PPR formats. Next week, he gets a tough slot matchup against the New England Patriots, though.

Robby Anderson goes off in win

Sun, Oct 13th 8:15pm EDT
By Mark Leipold

Robby Anderson caught five of his eight targets for 125 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 6 win over the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson, who has been a fantasy darling with Sam Darnold active, is right back at it. Though most of his production came on a 92-yard touchdown catch, that is what Anderson is, and his big play upside should be embraced. The bad news is Anderson could draw shadow coverage next week from Stephon Gilmore, so he will be tough to use in Week 7.

Le'Veon Bell rushed 14 times for 50 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 6 win over the Cowboys. He caught his only target for three yards.

Fantasy Impact: Bell has been laughably inefficient in 2019 thus far, though has still produced for fantasy purposes, thanks in large part to his receiving work. The one target today is not encouraging, but better days are likely ahead. The great news though, is that the Jets finally ran a goal-line play, and it went to Bell for a score. Keep starting Bell with confidence.

Sam Darnold completed 23-of-32 pass attempts for 332 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Jets' Week 6 win over the Cowboys. Darnold also rushed five times for one yard (including three kneel downs).

Fantasy Impact: Darnold picked up right where he left off -- being a very solid quarterback, that is. Even with a relatively weak supporting cast (though improved from 2018), Darnold delivered a solid day against a decent defense. Darnold should probably be benched in Week 7 against the Patriots, though. And by probably, I mean definitely. The Patriots are an elite pass defense. Better days are ahead beyond Week 7, though.

Luke Falk waived by the Jets

Luke Falk was waived by the Jets on Friday. (Source: New York Jets on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Sam Darnold (illness) returning to action this weekend, the Jets decided to waive Falk and resign backup David Fales. If Falk clears waivers, he will likely return to the teams practice squad.

Vyncint Smith rushed one time for a 19-yard touchdown in the Jets' Week 5 loss to the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Smith was not used except for a trick play where he got the edge and scored as a runner. Don't worry about adding him in fantasy football.

Josh Bellamy (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. (Source: New York Jets on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bellamy was unable to advance beyond limited participation in practice and will carry a questionable designation into the weekend. He could be in line for a reduced role if Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is able to return Week 5.

Braxton Berrios caught two of his six targets for 29 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Berrios has not shown any indication he's a regular offensive weapon before this week, so keep an eye on the target shares, but no need to rush out and pick him up. The Jets still have Jamison Crowder manning the slot and the offense is now run by Luke Falk, so Berrios is lukewarm at best even if he earns a starting role.

Category: Game Recaps


Ty Montgomery rushed twice for one yard and was targeted once in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Montgomery is nothing more than a clear handcuff to Le'Veon Bell. Do with that as you will -- it depends on league size and depth whether handcuffing make sense.

Trevor Siemian has been ruled out for the season due to his ankle injury suffered Week 2 against the Browns. (Source: Brian Costello on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Siemian suffered the ugly injury Monday night against Cleveland on a hit from Myles Garrett in which his ankle was bent back in an awkward fashion. He was immediately ruled out, so it's no surprise to see he's sidelined for an extended period. With Sam Darnold continuing to deal with mono, Luke Falk is likely to be the Jets' starting quarterback for the next few weeks. You were already downgrading their wide receivers in Darnold's absence, but the team should continue to lean heavily on running back Le'Veon Bell as was on display Monday night.

Jets running back Bilal Powell is inactive for the team's Week 2 matchup against the Cleveland Browns due to a coach's decision. (Source: Andrew DiCecco on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Bell playing and Montgomery set to back him up, Powell remains the odd man out in New Jersey.

Quinnen Williams to miss MNF

Quinnen Williams has been ruled out for this Monday's matchup against the Cleveland Browns. Williams exited week one with an ankle injury. (Source: Manish Mehta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Though the #3 overall pick didn't record a single stat in his 24 snaps in last week's game against the Bills, his absence still creates a giant hole along the D-line. The Jets are already in a dire situation, as they will be without Sam Darnold and C.J. Mosley for this primetime game. Go ahead and leave the Jets D/ST on the waiver wire this week.

Quincy Enunwa suffered a neck injury in Sunday’s 17-16 loss to the Bills and will be shut down for the season. (Source: Brian Costello on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Enunwa was sent for tests on Monday and the Jets determined the injury was serious enough for him to be shut down for the season. He previously missed the entire 2017 season with a neck injury, but returned healthy in 2018. Enunwa signed a four-year, $36 million dollar contract in December. It is unclear at this time if the injury is career-threatening. The Jets acquired Demaryius Thomas on Tuesday, he could immediately take on a sizable role with Enunwa out.
