Fantasy Impact: Cimini is reporting that the Jets view Powell as a "complementary back," not an RB1 -- citing that he is "more effective" when he receives fewer than 170 carries. And with the team expected to move on from Matt Forte, the Jets will only have Elijah McGuire remaining on their roster as their most reliable rusher aside from Powell. As a result, I expect the Jets to be in the market for a running back, whether it's in the draft or via free agency, this offseason.

Josh McCown announced he plans on playing in 2018 and enjoys playing for Todd Bowles and the Jets organization, this after every decision-maker with the team has expressed their desire to see the 39-year old McCown return.

Fantasy Impact: This is a tremendous opportunity for the Jets, to use a seasoned vet like McCown to serve as a bridge and a mentor to a young quarterback from the draft unless the team decides to go the free agency route.


Robby Anderson arrested

New York Jets beat reporter Rich Cimini is reporting WR Robby Anderson was arrested in South Florida on Thursday night for charges that include resisting an officer, harming a public servant or family and fleeing the police. Cimini is adding that the team is aware of Anderson's arrest but have yet to comment. (Source: Rich Cimini on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is Anderson's second South Florida arrest in a year. Last offseason, the troubled wideout was picked up while at a music festival for similar charges. As a result, Anderson, who is coming off of a breakout season, recording a 63-941-7 stat line -- he finished as the WR16 with 137 fantasy points -- could face disciplinary actions from the NFL for his conduct off the field. From a fantasy perspective, Anderson's ADP could be affected if he is banned for any amount of games. His ADP will also depend on the Jets' quarterback situation, plus, the role of Quincy Enunwa in the wake of his eventual return from a season-ending neck injury suffered in the preseason.

The Jets D/ST ends it’s disappointing 2017 season with a lackluster outing against the New England Patriots in which they were only able to log two sacks and no turnovers or touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: 2017 was not a good fantasy year for the Jets’ D/ST, which was supposed to be the strength of this young team heading into the season. To make matters worse, they did not log a D/ST touchdown for the entire season. With that being said, this Jets defense has all the tools to come back stronger and bounce back next season, so it is something to keep an eye on.

Elijah McGuire had four carries for negative three yards on Sunday. McGuire also grabbed three catches for 16 yards, including a long catch of 11 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the poor showing, there is much to be excited about for McGuire heading into the 2018 offseason, as more playing time may be on the horizon if Matt Forte does not return. Therefore, fantasy owners in dynasty leagues should stash him, as he could be a nice change-of-pace to Bilal Powell next season.

Chandler Catanzaro went 2-for-3 on field goal attempts in the Jets’ Week 17 loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Considering New York’s problems moving the ball in 2017, Catanzaro put up quality numbers in his first, and probably only, season with the Jets. The fourth-year kicker will be looking for a new job this offseason and unless he signs with a team with a high-powered offense, Catanzaro may be nothing more than a streaming option next season.

ArDarius Stewart caught one of two targets for 46 yards in the Jets’ Week 17 loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: After a promising start to the year, Stewart had a season to forget in 2017. The third-round rookie out of Alabama saw his role on offense slowly diminish as the season progressed and was eventually outshined by fellow rookie receiver Chad Hansen. Stewart clearly has his work cut out for him if he wants to see more snaps in his sophomore campaign.

Chad Hansen caught one of four targets for 15 yards in the Jets’ Week 17 loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Hansen finished his rookie season with nine catches for 94 yards, but the Cal product came on strong down the stretch, working himself into an expanded role in the Jets passing game. It’s safe to say that Hansen has no keeper value, but depending on who starts under center for the Jets next year, he could be a player that fantasy owners should keep an eye on.

Jermaine Kearse caught five of seven targets for 59 yards in the Jets’ Week 17 loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Kearse had an excellent first season in New York, recording a career-high 65 receptions and 810 receiving yards despite having to learn the playbook on the fly. Even though he had a productive year, Kearse’s fantasy stock is very much undetermined for 2018. Quincy Enunwa is likely to return in 2018 and could cut into the number of snaps that Kearse sees next season. Needless to say, Kearse has a lot of work ahead of him if he wants to keep his place on the depth chart.

Neal Sterling had five receptions on his eight targets for 74 yards in the Jets' Week 17 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Neal Sterling had an opportunity for a big game as Austin Seferian-Jenkins was declared inactive, and he did that. Sterling led the team in receptions, receiving yards, and targets in the season finale.

Bryce Petty completed 19 of his 36 passes for 232 yards, while throwing no touchdowns or interceptions in the Jets' Week 17 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Petty finally had a 200-yard game this season, and it happened to be on the season finale. It's doubtful that he'll be the starting quarterback next season for the Jets, so don't bother with him in fantasy formats.

ESPN's Field Yates is reporting New York Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (foot/ ribs) is officially inactive for Week 17. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: As expected, Seferian-Jenkins will not play in Sunday's season finale against the Patriots. Eric Tomlinson and Neal Sterling are left to handle the TE duties for the Jets, but neither are quality fantasy options for Week 17.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the New York Jets have paced RB Matt Forte (knee) on the injured reserve list. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Forte will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots as he was placed on IR with a knee injury. Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire will handle the RB duties in his absence.

JoJo Natson caught one of two targets for 19 yards and had one rushing attempt for 15 yards in the Jets’ Week 15 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact: While he was somewhat involved in the Jets offensive game plan against the Saints, Natson is primarily utilized as New York’s return man. Needless to say, Natson has no business being on anybody’s fantasy radar.

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

NE

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.

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.
