New York Jets

AFC East

Jets backup QB David Fales will return to New York after agreeing to a one-year deal. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fales has been on five teams in his six-year NFL career. He played with the Jets in 2019, serving as Sam Darnold’s backup for most of the season. He’ll look to claim that gig again in 2020.

Fantasy Impact: Jenkins was the sacks leader for the Jets in 2019 with eight on the year. He’ll return to New York on a one-year deal and he’ll look to pick up right where he left off.

LB James Burgess Jr. has re-signed with the Jets on a one-year deal, per his agent Drew Rosenhaus. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Burgess Jr. started 10 games at MLB for the Jets in 2019 after starting his NFL career in Cleveland in 2017. He recorded a lofty 80 tackles in those 10 games, and he’ll look to bring his hard-nosed style of play back to New York for at least one more season.

The Jets have exercised the 2021 contract year on TE Ryan Griffin. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Griffin will now be under contract through 2021 with New York. The 30-year old TE started all 13 games that he played a season ago, and he’ll look to continue to build a rapport with third-year QB Sam Darnold. Griffin is nothing more than a low-end TE2 going into the 2020 season.

Robby Anderson and the New York Jets are both interested in working out a deal that would keep Anderson in New York for multiple years. Nothing official has been agreed to. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Anderson could reprise his role in a Jets' uniform despite the early concerns that he would depart in free agency. Anderson would likely be more predictable for fantasy if he maintained his spot with New York, however he could easily explode in value on another team with a more mature quarterback and offense. He's currently the WR38 in our early expert consensus rankings.

Running back Le'Veon Bell may not take part in the Jets' offseason program, but head coach Adam Gase told reporters "it’s not a huge deal." (Source: Ralph Vacchiano on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gase has made it clear that he didn't think Bell was a great fit from the time the running back was signed, and the team would likely love to trade the veteran, but Bell's contract and lack of production will likely not allow for a move this offseason. As such, Bell basically can do what he wants. Given the situation, Bell should continue to be used heavily as the Jets really have nothing to lose, assuming he's able to provide at least average production. As such, he's entering the new season considered a low-end RB2 by our current expert consensus rankings.

Sam Darnold underwent a procedure Tuesday to repair a ligament in his left thumb, according to sources. The procedure was performed by the Jets team doctors, and he is not expected to miss any time this offseason, sources said. (Source: NY Post)

Fantasy Impact: Sam Darnold had a lot to overcome during his sophmore season. Playing behind one of the leagues absolute worst offensive lines (ranked 30th overall according to football outsiders) and in a new offensive system under HC Adam Gase. Darnold played much better in the final two months of the season after struggling for a stretch in October when he returned from mono. The decision on resigning UFA Robby Anderson and possibility that GM Joe Douglas decides to move on from Le'veon Bell will have a major impact on Darnold's 2020 outlook.

The New York Jets allowed six points and 309 yards of offense in their Week 17 win over the Buffalo Bills. The defense recorded one sack, one fumble recovery, and two interceptions in the contest.

Fantasy Impact: The Jets defense has been able to take advantage of some of their good matchups this season, but they are not one of the league's top units. The Jets have some talent on the defensive side of the ball, so with a few additional pieces via free agency or draft, this defense could be a viable option for 2020.

Category: Game Recaps


Sam Ficken converted two of his four field goal attempts and his lone extra point try in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: Ficken has not been a strong kicking option, either for the Jets or for fantasy purposes, in 2019. He's an exclusive rights free agent, so the Jets can bring him back on the cheap, but they may not be inclined to do so. Ficken is unlikely to be a viable fantasy kicker in 2020.

Category: Game Recaps


Jamison Crowder caught eight of his ten targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: Crowder is signed through 2021 with a potential out after 2020, but will surely be back in a Jets uniform for at least one more season barring a trade. Crowder has been a favorite target of Sam Darnold for much of the season, and depending on other roster moves, could be in line for another solid workload next year. Crowder will likely be a late-round pick with mild PPR format appeal.

Category: Game Recaps


Bilal Powell rushed seven times for 27 yards in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: Powell is now headed to free agency, and the market will likely be lukewarm at best. Powell may land on a roster for 2020, but likely as nothing more than a backup or veteran presence. Powell figures not to carry any relevant fantasy value in 2020.

Jamal Adams was a non-factor in the Jets' 13-6, tallying just three solo tackles and one pass breakup.

Fantasy Impact: Though Adams was unable to play all 16 games for the first time in his career, he did actually see a slight uptick in his fantasy points per game. He may have not ended the season with a bang, but there should be plenty of optimism in the coming season for the Jets' dynamic playmaker.

Demaryius Thomas is inactive for the Jets' game against the Bills in Week 17. (Source: Rich Cimini on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thomas has been battling a hamstring injury for several weeks and wasn't a consideration in any fantasy format at this point. His continued absence should again lead to increased targets for both Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder against a largely resting Buffalo defense.

Trevon Wesco caught his lone target for 32 yards in the Jets' Week 16 win over the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact: Wesco has rarely been used as a receiver this season and has little to no fantasy football appeal in any format.

Category: Game Recaps


Vyncint Smith caught three of his five targets for 40 yards in the Jets' Thursday night loss to the Ravens in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: Smith was elevated to a starting role in three-wide sets thanks to the absence of Demaryius Thomas for the game. Smith was a distant third in receiving and was not likely in any starting lineups. He's fine to leave on waivers for Week 16, as the matchup against the Steelers is a very difficult one, even if Smith sees playing time again.

Category: Game Recaps


Ty Montgomery rushed twice for five yards and caught his only target for five yards in the Jets' Thursday night loss to the Ravens in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: Montgomery remains nothing more than a rarely-used change-of-pace player for the Jets. Even with Bell out in Week 14, Bilal Powell carried most of the load, so Montgomery isn't even a handcuff and shouldn't be owned in essentially any league by now.

Chris Herndon IV (ribs) was placed on the injured reserve Tuesday. (Source: Brian Costello on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Herndon was suspended for the first four games of the season. He suffered a hamstring injury and missed the next four contests after the suspension. Herndon made his season debut for Sunday’s Week 10 contest against the Giants, where he suffered a broken rib and was ultimately placed on the injured reserve. He finishes 2019 with one catch for seven yards on two targets. Ryan Griffen should see additional snaps and targets while Herndon is sidelined.

Josh Adams is getting promoted to the Jets active team roster. (Source: Manish Mehta on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Le’Von Bell fantasy owners take note, Adams being signed points to Bell missing some time. Adams is worth an add in most leagues because the Jets have a favorable schedule coming up. Ty Montgomery also needs to be rostered.

Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley is expected to miss 5-6 weeks with his groin injury, according to Jets beat writer Manish Mehta on Twitter. (Source: Manish Mehta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Mosley returned for a Week 7 matchup against the Patriots but appears to have aggravated the injury. He missed Week 8 and is now expected to be sidelined for more than a month before being reevaluated for a possible return. If the Jets are out of playoff contention at that point, it's likely that they will just shut him down for the rest of the year.

The Jets have traded defensive lineman Leonard Williams to the Giants in exchange for a 2020 third-round pick and a 2021 fifth-round pick. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams was selected sixth overall out of USC in the 2015 NFL Draft by the Jets. He's been a solid lineman for the Jets over the years, not missing a game for the team over his five-year career. Given his role and position he hasn't been fantasy-relevant in IDP formats, but he should only help the Giants' defense which has been below-average in 2019.
