AFC East

Chandler Catanzaro went 2-for-3 in field goal attempts and 2-for-2 in extra point attempts in the Jets’ Week 3 win over the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: Despite missing his first field goal attempt of the season, Catanzaro had his best fantasy output of the season so far against the Dolphins. Catanzaro has been surprisingly productive despite the ineptitude of the Jets offense. It’s a stretch to consider Catanzaro as a viable fantasy option considering there are other kickers on better offenses still available. However, he may be worth a bye week flier in the coming weeks if continues to produce.

Jeremy Kerley caught all five of his targets for 42 yards in the Jets’ Week 3 win over the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: After a poor showing in his first game as a Jet this season, Kerley had a significant impact against the Dolphins Sunday afternoon. Two of Kerley’s targets were third down looks and, though it might be a little early to determine, it seems he’s become Josh McCown’s go-to option over the middle of the field. Despite the good showing, fantasy owners with a need at receiver should look elsewhere for help until Kerley proves he can produce on a consistent basis.

Robby Anderson caught three of six targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in the Jets’ Week 3 win over the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson hasn’t been getting many looks in the early going from Josh McCown, but he surprisingly led the Jets in targets Sunday afternoon. Despite the breakout performance, Anderson’s game against the Dolphins could just be a flash in the pan as most of the second-year receiver’s production came on a 69-yard touchdown pass from McCown. Fantasy owners in deep leagues should wait and see if he continues to produce before adding him.

Jermaine Kearse caught all three of his targets for 42 yards in the Jets’ Week 3 win over the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: Surprisingly, Kearse didn’t lead the Jets in targets against the Dolphins Sunday afternoon. Despite his dip in production from the previous two weeks, Kearse made the most of the opportunities he was given and is still only the Jets wide receiver worth owning. He doesn’t have the best matchup next week when the Jaguars come to town, but Kearse has gotten plenty of red zone looks this season. Consider him a boom-bust WR3/WR4 for desperate fantasy owners.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught five of his six targets for 31 yards in the Jets' Week 3 win.

Fantasy Impact: Austin Seferian-Jenkins was the number one Tight End in Waiver Wire Rankings this past week and he met expectations as far as Tight Ends go. As of now, Seferian-Jenkins should be a bench player or a very low TE1 starter, but he will have a very interesting matchup as the Jets face the Jaguars next week, who has allowed the third most points against Tight Ends.

Josh McCown impressive in win

Josh McCown completed 18 of 23 passes throwing for 249 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 3 win.

Fantasy Impact: Josh McCown shared the ball with everyone and was clicking with the offense. Even though McCown played great today, he should still stay on waivers as he will have a tough schedule ahead.

The Jets made a statement on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, as they won impressively at home for their first victory of the 2017 season by the final score of 20-6. The Jets' DST finished the game with three sacks and two interceptions.

Fantasy Impact: The Jets' DST nearly pitched a shutout, holding Miami scoreless until the very last play of the game when the Dolphins scored a last-second touchdown. With that being said, do not depend on this sort of outcome every week, as the Jets will not play the Miami Dolphins every week. Lightning rarely strikes the same location twice; only stream this DST when necessary and only if they have a good matchup. The Jets play at home in Week 4 against the red-hot Jacksonville Jaguars.

Elijah McGuire was able to see extended action in the Jets' Week 3 victory at home over the Miami Dolphins, as Matt Forte left in the second half with a toe injury. McGuire took full advantage, as he rushed for 34 yards on only seven carries (4.9 yards per carry) and had a long rush of 10 yards. Unfortunately, he also lost a fumble.

Fantasy Impact: McGuire becomes an intriguing option if Matt Forte cannot play in Week 4, as he will spell Bilal Powell and get some looks on 3rd down. But unfortunately, unless you are desperate, there is no need to rush to pick him up off the waiver wire, as Powell is the back you will want to start. We need to wait and see some more from McGuire before he becomes fantasy-relevant.

Bilal Powell and the New York Jets finally got into the win column in Week 3, beating the Miami Dolphins by the final score of 20-6. Powell led all Jets backs with 37 yards rushing on a game-high 15 rushes and one touchdown. His longest run of the day was good for nine yards.

Fantasy Impact: Powell had more opportunities once Forte left the game with a toe injury in the second half, and delivered a good game for fantasy. Strangely enough, BP was not able to log a catch on the day, which hurt his PPR value. If Forte cannot go against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4, look for Powell to get the start and split carries with Elijah McGuire. He immediately becomes an RB2, especially in PPR formats.

Matt Forte and the New York Jets won their first game of the season, beating the Miami Dolphins in Week 3 at home by the final score of 20-6. Forte rushed for 25 yards on eight carries, including a long rush of 12 yards, before leaving in the second half with a toe injury.

Fantasy Impact: Forte was having a decent game before exiting with the toe injury, giving way to Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire. It did not appear to be serious, but we will have to closely monitor his status for the team's Week 4 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars at home. If Forte can give it a go, he will probably be no better than an RB3 or flex option heading into the contest, with more value in PPR formats.

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.

Ardarius Stewart caught two of five targets for 10 yards in the Jets' Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact: Stewart got the start due to Jeremy Kerley being inactive and definitely made the most of his performance. However, the rookie receiver was clearly behind both Jermaine Kearse and Robby Anderson for targets and he’s bound to see a reduced role if Kerley starts Week 2 against the Raiders. Barring any injuries, Stewart shouldn’t have any fantasy value going forward.

Eric Tomlinson had two receptions for 25 yards, but then suffered an elbow injury, in the Jets' 21-12 loss to the Bills on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Tomlinson seemed to be the tight end to target for the Jets while Austin Seferian-Jenkins serves his two-game suspension. If healthy, he would be relevant in only the deepest of leagues, so monitor his status this week if you're desperate.

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.

Jordan Todman rushed for 20 yards on eight carries in the Jets' preseason victory over the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night. His longest run of the night was for six yards, as he averaged fours yards per carry.

Fantasy Impact: Todman may be on the roster bubble as the Jets inch closer towards the season opener, as the team is currently carrying more than five running backs during the preseason. If so, he needs a strong showing every time he steps on the field to secure a spot with the team. What does this mean for your fantasy team going forward? Absolutely nothing, as he should not be on any fantasy roster come Week One. Do not draft Todman in season-long leagues. Also, stay away from him in daily fantasy, as the risk for playing time far outweighs the potential for success.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo is reporting New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa (neck) will miss the entire 2017 season with a neck injury. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Enunwa will miss the 2017 season with a neck injury suffered during Saturday's practice. This is a huge blow to a rebuilding Jets' organization. Robby Anderson is the clear-cut favorite to emerge as the Jets' WR1 in Enunwa's absence. ArDarius Stewart is in line to open the year as the WR2.
