  • Chris Herndon Could See Increased Role In Week 4

    New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon has fluctuated between being a critical component in the teams offense and disappearing from the gameplan. Heading into Week 4, Herndon may be relied upon more than usual with all three of New Yorks top receivers carrying questionable designations as of Tuesday night. Their respective statuses for Thursday could create an opening for Herndon to vulture additional targets. Quarterback Sam Darnold has targeted Herndon better than an average of five times per contest over the first three weeks, although he has become a touchdown-dependent fantasy commodity, albeit one without an actual touchdown. Season-long fantasy managers may choose to wait until Sunday for more consistent options to appear, but those interested in the DFS market could consider Herndon as part of a one-game slate roster.

  • Jamison Crowder: Adam Gase 'hopeful' Crowder can play on Thursday

  • Jamison Crowder To Be Limited Tuesday

    New York Jets head coach Adam Gase said that wide receiver Jamison Crowder (hamstring), rookie left tackle Mekhi Becton (shoulder) and offensive tackle George Fant (concussion) will all be limited in Tuesday's walkthrough practice. All three players are trending toward playing on Thursday night against the Broncos. It's good news for a Jets offense that has been pitiful without Crowder and running back Le'Veon Bell the last two games. If Crowder suits up this week, he should be quarterback Sam Darnold's top aerial target, which would put him on the flex radar in PPR leagues. Crowder could see even more targets if Breshad Perriman misses another contest with his injury.

  • Sam Darnold Won't Be Benched

    New York Jets head coach Adam Gase remains committed to struggling quarterback Sam Darnold after an 0-3 start. Darnold had three interceptions -- two which were returned for touchdowns -- in the Week 3 blowout loss to the Colts. Veteran backup Joe Flacco (neck) underwent surgery in April and has been out the first three games. Flacco didn't start practicing until last week and might be inactive again this Thursday against the Broncos. Mike White, who has no regular season experience, is currently the backup until Flacco gets healthy. It's not all Darnold's fault, as Gang Green's best offensive players -- Le'Veon Bell, Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman -- have all been sidelined by injuries in recent weeks. Until further notice, it's best to avoid this entire offense, even against a banged-up Broncos Defense in Week 4. Darnold has 32 interceptions in 29 career starts.

  • Mekhi Becton Has A Chance To Play Thursday

    New York Jets head coach Adam Gase said that the team received good news on rookie left tackle Mekhi Becton (shoulder), who was forced to miss the team's Week 3 loss to the Colts. "The MRI turned out better than really we were thinking last night. Well see how he gets through the week and possibly he can play in this game," Gase said. The Jets really needed some good injury news given all of their injured offensive skill players early this season. Becton has been a bright spot on the team's offensive line through two games, and they'll need him this Thursday as they attempt to win their first game of the season against the winless Broncos.

  • La'Mical Perine Held To 24 Yards

    New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine made his NFL debut last week, but wasn't able to do much damage. He was expected to see a higher volume of touches during the Week 3 matchup versus the Indianapolis Colts. Perine saw seven carries for 24 yards in the loss. Veteran running back Frank Gore continues to be the workhorse back with Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) sidelined. Perine has some upside, but probably won't be able to find much room to run in New York. He belongs on the waiver wire in 12-team formats.

  • Frank Gore Gets 15 Carries Versus Colts

    New York Jets running back Frank Gore was used as the workhorse back once again this week. He carried the ball 15 times for 57 yards in the loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. The veteran back is likely going to be asked to carry the ball quite often until Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) returns. He has been unable to get much going on the ground this season. At this point, Gore is basically a desperation flex option and it'll likely stay that way versus the Denver Broncos next week.

  • Sam Darnold Throws Three Interceptions In The Loss

    New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold continued his awful 2020 campaign during the Week 3 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He completed 17 of 29 passing attempts for 168 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. Darnold started off the game with a pick-6 on the opening drive. It honestly didn't get much better from there. To be fair, he had backup receivers, but it wouldn't have made much of a difference. Maybe he can rebound versus the Denver Broncos on Thursday night. However, Darnold belongs on the waiver wire or bench in basically all formats.

  • Mekhi Becton Won't Return To Jets/Colts Game

    New York Jets offensive lineman Mekhi Becton (shoulder) exited Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts and will not return. The Jets offense is already in a precarious position due to injuries, and Becton -- who already was dealing with the shoulder issue before this game -- is another piece they can't afford to lose. The rookie had played every snap for the team in the first two games and an extended absence would make an already anemic offense worse as the run and pass blocking would take a hit.

  • Braxton Berrios Active In Week 3

    A late addition to the injury report this week, New York Jets wide receiver Braxton Berrios (hamstring) will play on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. With Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman inactive, Berrios will have a good chance to see targets in this contest. The hamstring issue is a concern, but Berrios offers an intriguing deep-league streamer or DFS value play in Week 3. Just don't be surprised if the Jets offense struggles to get going and Berrios suffers as a result.

    Sep 27 · Source via Jets Braxton Berrios
  • Chris Hogan Should See Increased Role

    New York Jets wide receiver Chris Hogan (ribs) was limited during Thursday's practice. However, he is fully expected to suit up for the Week 3 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. Both Jamison Crowder (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (ankle) are going to be sidelined here. Hogan hauled in six receptions for 75 yards with both players banged up last week. He should see plenty of chances against Indy. However, the Colts pass defense is solid, so Hogan won't have great fantasy appeal. He might be worth a look as a desperation flex option in PPR leagues.

    Sep 27 · Source via Jets Chris Hogan
  • La'Mical Perine Could Get More Involved

    New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) was able to fully practice on Thursday, which means he should be fine for the Week 3 matchup versus the Indianapolis Colts. He made his NFL debut last week, but didn't see many chances. Perine carried the ball three times for 17 yards in the loss. He could take away some touches from Frank Gore this week. It's unlikely that the Jets want Gore to see 21 carries again. Perine won't be worth starting in most formats, but he could be someone to stash in 12/14 team leagues.

    Sep 27 · Source via Jets Lamical Perine
  • Frank Gore Should See Heavy Workload

    New York Jets running back Frank Gore saw plenty of chances versus the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2. The veteran back finished with 63 rushing yards on 21 carries in the loss. The Jets are still without Le'Veon Bell (hamstring), which means Gore is going to be leaned on in the running game. Sadly, he'll get a tough matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. The same defense that held Dalvin Cook to 63 yards. Gore is likely going to have a tough time finding room to run. He'll be a desperation flex option for this contest.

  • Sam Darnold Has Avoidable Matchup

    New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold has not put together much success through the first two games of the regular season. To be fair, the Jets offense is facing a ton of injuries and they didn't have much talent around Darnold to start the season. He'll now face off against an Indianapolis Colts Defense that destroyed Kirk Cousins in Week 2. Honestly, Darnold belongs on the bench or waiver wire in almost all formats. There really is no reason to start Darnold here unless you absolutely have no other option.

  • Jamison Crowder, Breshad Perriman Ruled Out Against Colts

    New York Jets head coach Adam Gase said that wide receivers Jamison Crowder (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (ankle) have been ruled out for Week 3 against the Colts. It'll be Crowder's second straight missed game. The Jets offense is an absolute disaster right now, as running back Le'Veon Bell is also out for multiple weeks. Chris Hogan and Braxton Berrios will be quarterback Sam Darnold's top targets this Sunday, making Indy's defense an excellent streaming option. You'd have to be really desperate to consider Hogan or Berrios in a flex spot in the deepest of leagues. Tight end Chris Herndon had a quiet Week 2, but he has some sleeper appeal with all of New York's pass-catchers injured.

  • Breshad Perriman, Chris Hogan On Week 3 Injury Report

    New York Jets wide receiver Breshad Perriman (ankle) will not practice on Thursday, while wide receiver Chris Hogan (rib) is limited while dealing with a rib injury. On top of it, Jamison Crowder (hamstring) is expected to miss his second straight game against the Colts. Braxton Berrios and Josh Malone are the only other wideouts on the roster, although Lawrence Cager could get called up from the practice squad. Running back Le'Veon Bell is also out. The Jets offense is downright ugly, making the Colts Defense a strong streaming option this week. Perriman is considered week-to-week, but you should've already been looking to avoid him in standard 12-team leagues. Other than maybe tight end Chris Herndon as a flex sleeper, it would be smart to avoid Gang Green.

  • Jamison Crowder Doubtful For Week 3

    New York Jets head coach Adam Gase said that wide receiver Jamison Crowder (hamstring) is doubtful to play in Week 3 against the Colts. Crowder didn't practice on Wednesday and is expected to sit out on Thursday, too, making him likely to miss his second straight game. As quarterback Sam Darnold's favorite weapon, Crowder is really the only Jets receiver worth starting in most fantasy leagues at this point, but it looks like you'll have to go in another direction for another week. Breshad Perriman, Chris Hogan and Braxton Berrios should operate in three-receiver sets if Crowder misses another game, with tight end Chris Herndon being a sleeper in DFS and deeper leagues.

  • Chris Herndon Struggles In Week 2

    New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon was unable to get anything going despite the team being destroyed by injuries. Herndon caught one of his four targets for five yards in the loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2. Both Breshad Perriman (ankle) and Jamison Crowder (hamstring) were sidelined in this one. However, Herndon was unable to capitalize on it. Sadly, it won't get any easier for Herndon next week as he faces off against the Indianapolis Colts. Herndon still has some potential, but should probably be benched in most 12-team leagues next week.

  • Breshad Perriman Finishes With 12 Yards

    New York Jets wide receiver Breshad Perriman (ankle) was forced to exit early during the Week 2 blowout loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Before exiting, Perriman was able to haul in both his targets for 12 yards. It's unknown if he'll be able to suit up for Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts. Chris Hogan and Braxton Berrios could offer some PPR upside, assuming Perriman and Jamison Crowder (hamstring) remain sidelined. Perriman wasn't playing well anyway and is quickly becoming a cut-candidate.

  • Braxton Berrios Scores Touchdown In Blowout Loss

    New York Jets wide receiver Braxton Berrios was asked to step up after multiple injuries destroyed the Jets offense. He made the most of his chances during the Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Berrios caught six of his eight targets for 59 yards and one touchdown. To be fair, the touchdown was when the game was already over, so it didn't matter too much. The Jets offense has been crushed by injuries, so maybe Berrios can have some PPR value. Although, he'll get a tough matchup against the Indianapolis Colts next week.

    Sep 20 · Source via Jets Braxton Berrios
  • Chris Hogan Capitalizes On Extra Targets

    New York Jets wide receiver Chris Hogan (ribs) was able to make the most of his chances versus the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2. He stepped into the No. 1 receiver role after Breshad Perriman (ankle) exited the game. Hogan briefly went to the locker room himself due to a ribs issue, but returned to the game. He hauled in six of his eight targets for 75 yards in the loss. The Jets offense has been destroyed by injuries, so Hogan might gain some fantasy value going forward. However, he'll get a tough matchup versus the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. He might have low-end flex value for that one, assuming the Jets don't get healthy.

  • Kalen Ballage Makes Jets Debut

    New York Jets running back Kalen Ballage was able to get involved in the gameplan for the Week 2 matchup versus the San Francisco 49ers. The Jets are desperate for help in the running back after Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) went down. Ballage saw one carry for five yards and two receptions for 12 yards in the loss. Frank Gore saw 21 carries and appears to be the player they plan to lean on. There won't be much upside for Ballage against the tough Indianapolis Colts Defense next week. Fantasy owners should leave Ballage on the waiver wire until he proves himself.

  • La'Mical Perine Gets Some Touches Versus 49ers

    New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) was banged up throughout the week, but was able to suit up for Sunday's contest. He carried the ball three times for 17 yards in the Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) is going to be sidelined for a few weeks, which means someone needs to step up. Frank Gore saw 21 carries in this one, but Perine does have potential. Sadly, he'll get a tough matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. Fantasy owners shouldn't jump to pick up Perine just yet, but keep an eye on him over the next few weeks.

    Sep 20 · Source via Jets Lamical Perine
  • Frank Gore Gets 21 Carries

    New York Jets running back Frank Gore was heavily involved in their Week 2 gameplan. The San Francisco 49ers destroyed them, but head coach Adam Gase continued to keep Gore involved in the game. Gore carried the ball 21 times for 63 yards in the loss. It's nice to see Gore getting that many attempts, but the road doesn't get easier against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. Gore could be a desperation flex option for this one, but it's tough to trust anyone on the Jets offense.

    Sep 20 · Source via Jets Frank Gore
  • Sam Darnold Throws Touchdown In Loss

    New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold didn't have a bad performance on paper, but that doesn't tell the whole story. He completed 21 of 32 passing attempts for 179 passing yards and one touchdown in the Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He did throw a touchdown, but it was at the point where the game was already out of hand. The Jets don't have many weapons on offense, so Darnold won't offer too much upside. He'll get another tough matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. Darnold belongs on the waiver wire or bench in most leagues going forward.

  • Breshad Perriman Will Miss Remainder Of Week 2

    New York Jets wide receiver Breshad Perriman (ankle) will miss the remainder of Sunday's game against the 49ers. With Denzel Mims (hamstring) and Jamison Crowder (hamstring) also out, the Jets may continue to lean on Frank Gore on the ground and Chris Hogan as the primary pass-catcher.

  • La'Mical Perine Set To Make NFL Debut

    New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) didn't play in Week 1, but is set to make his NFL debut against the 49ers on Sunday. With Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) on the injured reserve, Perine could play a small role right away as the passing-down option when veteran Frank Gore rests. In season-long leagues, Perine should be ignored, but he's an interesting punt play in DFS this week and should get at least a few touches.

  • Josh Adams Promoted From Practice Squad

    New York Jets running back Josh Adams was promoted from the practice squad on Saturday ahead of the team's Week 2 matchup with the 49ers. With Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) on Injured Reserve, the Jets are bringing up Adams for some depth. Frank Gore will see most of the carries, with the leftovers going to fellow backs La'Mical Perine (ankle) and newly acquired Kalen Ballage. Adams did score a garbage time touchdown in Week 1, though his role is far too unpredictable to count on for any production. This backfield is one of the more unappealing ones in fantasy football at the moment.

  • La'Mical Perine Questionable To Make NFL Debut

    New York Jets rookie running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) is questionable to face the 49ers in Week 2. Perine was limited in practice the last two days, so he has a real chance to make his NFL debut after he was inactive in the season-opener. The Jets could really use some depth with Le'Veon Bell on Injured Reserve. But even if Perine suits up on Sunday, he's unlikely to see much of a workload behind veteran Frank Gore. Plus, he'll be facing a really tough San Francisco defense after an offseason in which he didn't get many on-field repetitions.

  • Jamison Crowder Out For Week 2

    New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder (hamstring) will miss his team's Week 2 contest against the San Francisco 49ers. This leaves the Jets really shallow at receiver, with Breshad Perriman taking on the role as the team's No. 1 option this week. Perriman becomes an intriguing flex play, though the 49ers Defense is really good and the Jets passing attack as the ability to be really inconsistent. We might also see more of Braxton Berrios, but he's not really a fantasy option outside of being a cheap punt play in DFS contests.

    New York Jets wide receiver Breshad Perriman was listed as the No. 1 option for the team heading into their Week 1 matchup with the Buffalo Bills. He finished the game with three receptions on five targets for 17 yards. Both Jamison Crowder and Chris Herndon appear to be the favorable options in New York. Things aren't going to get easier for Perriman in Week 2 when he faces off against the San Francisco 49ers Defense. Perriman is basically a desperation flex right now, but has potential to be useful if he ever figures it out.

  • Chris Herndon Has TE2 Value Versus 49ers

    New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon could be headed towards a breakout season in 2020. He hauled in six of his seven targets for 37 yards in the loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 1. The Jets don't have many reliable options on offense, so they will probably look Herndon's way quite often. He'll get a tough matchup against the San Francisco 49ers Defense in Week 2. Herndon should still see plenty of targets, which makes him a TE2 in PPR leagues for this week.

  • Jamison Crowder Limited During Wednesday's Practice

    New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder (hamstring) was limited during Wednesday's practice. Crowder was battling a hamstring issue in training camp, but wasn't on the injury report during Week 1. He hauled in seven of his 13 targets for 115 yards and one touchdown in the Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Crowder is one of the few players on the Jets that offers decent fantasy value right now. Crowder has been reliable, so the Jets are likely going to look his way quite often. He gets a fairly tough matchup against the San Francisco 49ers Defense in Week 2. Fantasy owners should consider Crowder a WR3 for this one, assuming he is able to suit up.

  • Frank Gore Named Starter For Week 2

    New York Jets running back Frank Gore has been named the starter for their Week 2 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) has been placed on the injured reserve. That means, Gore, Josh Adams, and Kalen Ballage will be tasked with holding together the Jets rushing attack. The 37-year-old back rushed six times for 24 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. He'll get another tough matchup against the 49ers Defense. Maybe Gore can be a low-end flex option, but he'll probably only be worth using in deep leagues.

  • Sam Darnold Has Difficult Task In Week 2

    New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold was expected to have a bounce-back season with a new revamped offensive line. However, Darnold continued to struggle in their season opener versus the Buffalo Bills. He completed 21 of 35 passes for 215 yards with one touchdown and one interception. To be fair, Darnold has one of the worst supporting casts around him. Their rushing attack has been horrendous, so things aren't looking up for the Jets. Darnold will get a tough matchup against the elite San Francisco 49ers Defense in Week 2. Honestly, Darnold belongs on the waiver wire or bench in almost all single-QB formats until he proves he can do something positive.
