Fantasy Impact: The team is still being cautious will Hall's recovery from the season ending knee injury he suffered last year. He's almost always limited at practice, but he always ends up playing. He will play in Week 4 barring any unforeseen circumstances and remains a high-upside flex option at best against the Chiefs on Sunday night.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson has not impressed since becoming the starter, though the situation around him isn't perfect. However, with high expectations surrounding the Jets pre-season, the pressure is on Wilson is to no fault of his own. Saleh stands by Wilson for now, though the threat of locker room tension always remains.

Michael Carter did not record a rushing attempt and caught his lone target for three yards in a 15-10 loss to New England.

Fantasy Impact: Carter was visibly frustrated on the Jets’ sidelined and got into an animated argument with the team’s running back coach. As the number three option at running back for the Jets, fantasy managers should expect Carter to have limited fantasy value in 2023.

New York Jets’ D/ST allowed 15 points while collecting zero sacks and no turnovers in Jets’ 15-10 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: The Jets’ defense allowed 201 passing yards and 157 rushing yards in the loss to New England. The defense only allowed one big play, a 58-yard touchdown reception by TE Pharaoh Brown. The Jets’ defense should be left on the waiver wire as the draw Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in Week 4.

Greg Zuerlein made 1-of-1 field goal attempts (52) and 1-of-1 extra point attempts in Jets’ 15-10 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Zuerlein drilled a 52-yard field goal late in the second quarter to get the Jets’ on the score board. The veteran kicker did not play in Week 2 but is perfect on his four field goal attempts through two games. With a struggling offense, Zuerlein should only be trusted in matchups where the Jets’ offense faces a weak defense.

C.J. Uzomah caught 1-of-1 target for nine yards in Jets’ 15-10 loss over to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Uzomah saw his first action of the 2023 season and was targeted just once in a tough day for the Jets’ offense. The 30-year-old will likely continue to operate behind TE Tyler Conklin, limiting Uzomah’s fantasy value. Fantasy managers can feel comfortable leaving Uzomah off their rosters for now.

Tyler Conklin caught 3-of-6 targets for 26 yards in Jets’ 15-10 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Conklin tied Allen Lazard for the second highest target total of the day. Conklin is the clear TE1 in the Jets’ offense, which could make him a viable option if Zach Wilson can begin to show some consistent play in the coming weeks. The Jets and Conklin will take on the Chiefs in Week 4.

Randall Cobb caught 1-of-2 targets for 12 yards in Jets’ 15-10 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Cobb’s reception Sunday was his first of the season, as he has seen just four targets in three games this season. The 33-year-old is in a struggling passing offense and can safely be left off fantasy rosters heading into Week 4 against Kasnas City.

Category: Game Recaps

Allen Lazard caught 3-of-5 targets for 39 yards in the Jets’ 15-10 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Lazard continues to see a limited target share in a struggling passing offense. The 27-year-old has yet to find the end zone this season and is a risky play in Week 4 when the Jets play the Chiefs.

Category: Game Recaps

Garrett Wilson caught 5-of-9 targets for 48 yards in Jets’ 15-10 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson led the team in receptions, yards, and targets in the loss Sunday. Even with the weather and the inconsistent quarterback play, Wilson was still able to turn in a solid fantasy day. The 23-year-old remains a solid starting option against the Chiefs in Week 4.

Nick Bawden rushed for one yard on one carry with one touchdown in Jets’ 15-10 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Bawden scored the lone Jets’ touchdown in the fourth quarter to cut the deficit to three. The 27-year-old saw his first carry of the season in the loss Sunday and should not be considered a fantasy option.

Dalvin Cook rushed for 18 yards on eight carries with zero touchdowns in Jets’ 15-10 loss to the Patriots. He also caught 3-of-3 targets for an additional 11 yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact: Cook continues to split time with second-year running back Breece Hall. Unfortunately for the Jets, neither back performed well and contributed to the 1.7 average yards per rushing attempt for the team in Week 3. Cook is likely a risky start in Week 4 against the Chiefs and should remain on the bench until he can turn in more consistent performances.

Jets CB Bryce Hall is officially inactive for a Week 3 matchup with New England.

Fantasy Impact: Hall is a healthy scratch, which leaves the Jets with just seven defensive backs for Sunday’s matchup with the New England. The team is choosing to dress an extra defensive lineman against a Patriots team that is looking to establish the run.

Jets WR Jason Brownlee is officially inactive for a Week 3 matchup with New England.

Fantasy Impact: Brownlee will remain a healthy scratch for the third consecutive game. Fantasy managers can leave the young wide receiver on the waiver wire for now.

Jets RB Israel Abanikanda is officially inactive for a Week 3 matchup with New England.

Fantasy Impact: Abanikanda will remain a healthy scratch for Week 3. The rookie will likely remain an inactive weekly with Breece Hall, Dalvin Cook, and Michael Carter ahead of him in the running back pecking order.

Fantasy Impact: With Brown sidelined, backup Billy Turner will receive the start at left tackle in what will likely be a long day for quarterback Zach Wilson and the Jets offense against a disciplined Patriots defense Sunday.

John Franklin-Myers (hip) was kept out of Wednesday's practice session but still expected to play Sunday. (Source: Brian Costello on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Franklin-Myers has been dealing with a hip issue. The Jets' staff gave him Wednesday off, but head coach Robert Saleh still expects the pass rusher to be on the field Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers, who underwent a successful surgery to repair his torn Achilles this week, has not ruled out the possibility of returning for the postseason. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: There is some precedent for athletes returning from Achilles injuries in around five or six months, but Rodgers' age may make the healing process challenging against a tight clock. Regardless, this is a far-fetched notion, as the Jets are not guaranteed even to make the postseason. With Rodgers all but guaranteed to miss the entirety of the regular season, he does not belong on any redraft rosters.

The Jets elevated Tim Boyle as the backup quarterback. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It will be Zach Wilson undercenter on Sunday for the Jets against the Cowboys with Boyle serving as his backup. The Jets could add a quarterback down the line, but it will be Wilson and Boyle for the time being.
