AFC East

Fantasy Impact: Davis was in and out of the game in Week 13 against the Eagles. In total, he caught 2-of-3 targets for 15 yards. Davis' absence for the rest of the year could lead to an eruption month for rookie wideout Elijah Moore.

Ryan Griffin only received two targets, but made the most of them. He caught both passes for 15 yards, finding the end zone on one reception.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin is the clear No. 1 tight end for the Jets, which is a good thing. The problem is there's very little value in such a role. The Jets have Elijah Moore, Corey Davis and Jamison Crowder who will all command a higher target share than Griffin, which will constantly leave him fighting for the scraps. He's nothing more than a low-percentage touchdown-dependent TE2.

Jamison Crowder took a backseat to Elijah Moore's continued emergence, but he finished as the second-leading receiver in all categories.

Fantasy Impact: Crowder finished with six targets, which was second to all players behind Elijah Moore. He caught four of his targets and finished with 62 scoreless yards. While Corey Davis was active, he was limited, offering a bigger opportunity for Crowder. The veteran receiver is best in PPR-leagues, but is still nothing more than a WR5 who will become almost impossible to trust once Davis returns to full health.

Ty Johnson took a backseat to Tevin Coleman as he registered only one carry for a single yard. He also received four targets and caught two of them for 14 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson has been a massive disappointment since Michael Carter went on IR. He has been minimally involved, ceding almost all of the backfield work to Tevin Coleman. Fantasy managers can safely send Johnson to waivers. He's strictly a handcuff and with Carter's eventual return and the anemic Jets' offense, there's little value to be had here.

Zach Wilson completed 23 of 38 attempts for 226 yards. He threw two touchdown passes and one interception. He also rushed three times for zero yards, but did find the end zone once on the ground.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson put together one of his better fantasy performances of the season. It was a pleasant surprise for fantasy managers rostering him in dynasty and two-quarterback leagues, as he showcased some of the promise he was drafted with. Despite the positive performance, he's still best left on the waiver wire in redraft leagues.

Tevin Coleman received 11 carries, which was 10 more than any other Jets' running back. He finished with 58 scoreless yards. He also received four targets and caught three of them for 19 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Following the IR announcement for rookie, Michael Carter, many expected Ty Johnson to become the lead back, but that hasn't happened. In Week 13, Coleman was also highly involved in the passing game. The utilization he saw this week was a positive step for Coleman's fantasy prospects. He will most likely be relegated to a backup role once Carter returns, but until then, fantasy managers can treat Coleman as an RB3/4 who likely needs a touchdown to finish with a good fantasy performance.

Elijah Moore commanded 12 targets, which paced all Jets. He caught six of them for 77 yards and a score. The rookie also added one carry for nine yards.

Fantasy Impact: Moore has been borderline unstoppable since their Week 6 bye week. Since that time, he's scored 7.3 or more half-PPR points in every contest and has scored in double-figures in five out of seven games over that time. The rookie is the unquestioned alpha receiver for the Jets and that production has now transferred across multiple quarterbacks. Fantasy managers can treat Moore as a WR2/3 moving forward.

Fantasy Impact: Keelan Cole is not expected to play in Week 13, opening up an expanded role for Denzel Mims. Mims should be viewed as nothing more than a DFS flier with Zach Wilson continuing to struggle.

Fantasy Impact: Costello also reports that Jets QB Mike White is still dealing with the virus and remains out. This news gives some clarity surrounding who would back up rookie QB Zach Wilson in Week 13 vs the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Jets' defense was able to hold the Texans to only 14 points, en route to a 21–14 victory.

Fantasy Impact: The Jets' defense was effective on Sunday. They held Tyrod Taylor to only 158 passing yards and was able to pick him off on one occasion. They were also able to keep the running game in check, holding the Texans to just 96 team rushing yards on 24 carries. Despite the positive effort, fantasy managers shouldn't be expecting a repeat performance. This was, after all, the Texans they were playing.

Fantasy Impact: Carter will miss a minimum of three games while sidelined with his ankle injury. Ty Johnson and Tevin Coleman will form an uninspiring committee during his absence.

Fantasy Impact: Zach Wilson (knee) will start in Week 12 against the Texans. As long as he shows some improvement from earlier this season he should keep the job for the rest of the year.

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said wide receiver Denzel Mims' availability for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins is in doubt. (Source: Rich Cimini on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Mims was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and missed Week 10 against the Buffalo Bills. He will need to submit one more negative COVID test before being cleared for Sunday's game. Mims has been a non-factor this season; fantasy managers weren't starting him anyways. Corey Davis, Elijah Moore, Jamison Crowder, and Keelan Cole will lead the Jets receiver corps in Week 11 if Mims is out.

Jets coach Robert Saleh has pushed back Mehki Becton's timeline for returning to practice by 1-3 weeks. (Source: Ralph Vacchiano via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Becton was a breakout rookie last season and someone the Jets thought would anchor their line this season. At this point, it's probably better that he sits and gets to full strength.

Josh Johnson threw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns in relief duty of starter, Mike White.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson came into the game against the Colts early after the starter, Mike White hurt his wrist. Johnson played admirably and put forth a good outing. He completed 27 of his 41 attempts and finished with three touchdowns. He did throw one interception. He chipped in with another 18 yards rushing on four attempts.

Tyler Kroft suffered a lung laceration in Thursday's game against the Colts and is expected to miss multiple weeks. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Kroft was seeing more action than Ryan Griffin before the injury. Griffin could see more playing time, but he isn't necessarily on the fantasy football radar regardless.

New York Jets safety Marcus Maye has torn his Achillies in Thursday's game against the Colts and is out for the season. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: It was not a great sign at first when Maye left the game with a non-contact calf injury. It is brutal timing for Maye who was playing on a contract year.

New York Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury. (Source: Rich Cimini on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Mosley picked up the injury in London and should be viewed as questionable for Week 7. For what it's worth, Mosley is confident that he will be able to play against the New England Patriots. Mosley has been a little inconsistent in the solo tackle department this season but has been providing solid combined numbers. If Mosley cannot go, Jamien Sherwood will get the start in his place.

Jets running back La'Mical Perine did not practice on Thursday due to a non-COVID illness. (Source: Ralph Vacchiano on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Perine appeared in 10 games as a rookie last season, but he's been a healthy scratch every week this season. It looks like the 23-year-old is trending towards being inactive against the Titans.

Braxton Berrios caught seven of 11 targets and finished with 73 yards.

Fantasy Impact: On a day where Bill Belichick and the Patriots' defense took away Zach Wilson's No. 1 option in Corey Davis, Berrios stepped up and had a productive day. He received 11 targets out of Wilson's 33 attempts, good for a 33% target share. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect this type of fantasy production moving forward. Berrios is best left on waivers, especially with Jamison Crowder likely returning next week.
