  • Denzel Mims Won't Request Trade

    New York Jets wide receiver Denzel Mims has not requested a trade and is not expected to do so, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic. Mims' agent was at Jets training camp today and a report surfaced suggesting Mims might look to be dealt, but Hughes clarifies that's not the case. The 24-year-old has suffered from a lack of both playing time and production through two pro seasons, catching just 31 passes for 490 yards over the course of 20 games. It's hard to imagine he'll have much of a role this coming season now that he's blocked on the roster by breakout receiver Elijah Moore, rookie Garrett Wilson, veteran Corey Davis, gadget player Braxton Berrios, and others.

  • OT Duane Brown Visiting Jets

    Could Duane Brown be heading east? The veteran offensive tackle is visiting with the Jets and will attend their Green & White scrimmage tonight, according to ESPN’s Rich Cimini (on Twitter). Brown started all 17 games last season for Seattle and earned his first Pro Bowl nod since the 2017 campaign. He ended up ranking a […]

  • Denzel Mims Is Looking Strong In Camp

    New York Jets wide receiver Denzel Mims has reportedly been "working his tail off" in camp, according to head coach Robert Saleh. The former second round pick has struggled to make an impact during his first two seasons. He has 67 receptions for 490 yards and zero touchdowns in 20 games. He'll likely be battling for a roster spot with the Jets upgrading at wide receiver. It's tough to imagine Mims having fantasy value with Corey Davis, Elijah Moore, and Garrett Wilson on the roster.

  • 'Showman' Sauce Gardner brings swagger to Jets' defense

    The Jets haven't had a true identity on defense for years. Gardner's personality and talent can change that.

  • Jeremy Ruckert Added Back To Active Roster

    New York Jets tight end Jeremy Ruckert (foot) was removed from the PUP list on Wednesday. The former Buckeye was selected in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft after amassing 54 catches for 615 yards and four touchdowns at the collegiate level. While it's good to see Ruckert on the field for training camp, he will compete against C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Conklin for looks from Zach Wilson this season. However, he will likely remain behind them on the depth chart, so his value in redraft formats is minimal. Yet, the 21-year-old is at least worth a late dynasty pick for those with room on their roster.

  • Tevin Coleman Activated From Non-Football Injury List

    New York Jets running back Tevin Coleman (illness) was activated from the non-football injury list on Wednesday. The veteran was expected to be the team's No. 1 option out of the backfield last season. However, he played only 11 games and finished with a miserable 305 yards off 84 attempts. With the Jets taking Iowa State's Breece Hall in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft, Coleman will primarily battle Michael Carter for the backup spot, although the latter appears to have the edge. Ty Johnson (hamstring) and La'Mical Perine will also be hunting for snaps this year, so Coleman's fantasy stock may arguably be at the lowest point of his career.

  • Mekhi Becton Slowly Progressing

    New York Jets offensive tackle Mekhi Becton isn't handling the heat well in training camp practices, but the Jets should be happy with their right tackle's progression, especially considering where he was in the spring and at the start of training camp. If Becton can stay healthy and George Fant eventually returns to full strength, the Jets offensive line should be in good shape. "He's getting better every day, he's getting more confident every day and I'm really pleased with his progression," head coach Robert Saleh said. The 23-year-old former first-rounder had a solid rookie year in 2020 and started 14 games, but he played in just one contest in 2021 before tearing his MCL.

  • Carl Lawson Emerging For The Jets

    New York Jets defensive end Carl Lawson was given $45 million last year to be a dominant pass-rusher, but instead he missed the entire season due to injuries. However, he appears to be emerging after six training camp practices this summer. The team's deep defensive end group has looked good so far in training camp, but none more than Lawson. "He's a freak. I'm excited for him. He does all the right things," quarterback Zach Wilson said. "He hangs out in the backfield with us a little too much." The 27-year-old will start on the defensive line this year for Gang Green, but he's unlikely to be a force in IDP leagues. Lawson had 8.5 sacks for the Cincinnati Bengals in his rookie season in 2017, but he posted just 11.5 sacks combined the following three seasons, and he's never had more than 18 solo tackles in a single season.

  • Elijah Moore Could Emerge As No. 1 Option

    New York Jets wide receiver Elijah Moore has established himself as a No. 1 option, according to Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic. The former second round pick has shown flashes of being a star early in his career.. Last season, Moore finished with 43 receptions, 538 receiving yards, and five touchdowns in 11 games (six starts) with the Jets. Those are fairly solid numbers considering he was stuck with some of the worst quarterbacks in the league. The hope is that Moore will take another take forward in 2022. Although, he might have to fight with Corey Davis and Garrett Wilson for targets in New York. Despite that, Moore is looking like the best fantasy option out of the three in redraft leagues.

  • Michael Carter Dealing With Minor Ankle Injury

    New York Jets running back Michael Carter (ankle) is dealing with a minor ankle injury, which is why he was held out of training camp practice on Tuesday. Carter enters the 2022 season as the backfield leader after he led the team in rushing in his rookie season with 639 yards and four touchdowns on 147 attempts. He also caught 36 of his 55 targets for 325 yards through the air. Second-rounder Breece Hall projects to overtake Carter in the Jets backfield at some point this year, however, so Carter is being ranked as an RB3/flex in fantasy drafts, while Hall has RB2 upside in his rookie season. Carter is probably a better depth addition for fantasy managers in PPR leagues.

  • Breece Hall Expected To Overtake Michael Carter

    New York Jets running back Michael Carter is the incumbent after leading the team in rushing as a rookie in 2021, but the sense is that rookie Breece Hall will overtake him at some point this year. Carter ran for 639 rushing yards and 4.3 yards per carry, but he's on the smaller side and doesn't have breakaway speed. Hall, on the other hand, is bigger, faster and a better receiver than Carter. The Jets have high hopes for Hall, although there will likely be early growing pains as he learns to transition away from his ultra-patient running style. Given the expectation that Hall will eventually become the primary backfield threat for the Jets in 2022, he should be targeted as a low-end RB2, with Carter being more of an RB3/4 or handcuff in fantasy drafts.

  • Elijah Moore More Comfortable Heading Into Second Season

    New York Jets second-year wide receiver Elijah Moore, who led the team in receiving yards (538) in his rookie campaign despite playing in only 11 games, said he's way more comfortable heading into the 2022 season. "I had to go experience it," Moore said. "It was my first time going to do it. Seeing this look. Understanding the speed. I feel like as time went on, just like you did with Zach [Wilson], you get more comfortable. So now just hearing it over again, it's more like clockwork. I'm just grateful for that." Quarterback Zach Wilson should take a step forward in his second season, and the Jets added first-round wideout Garrett Wilson to a passing attack that should be more explosive. With Moore being Wilson's go-to target in 2021, he should enter fall drafts as a solid WR3 target in fantasy.

  • Zach Wilson Inconsistent Early In Training Camp

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson looked more comfortable dealing with pressure from the defensive line at training camp practice on Friday than he did the day prior, but two of his three incompletions on the day were interceptions. It wasn't all bad, though, as Wilson showed improvement in the red zone and threw an impressive touchdown pass to receiver Corey Davis. Wilson's final interception was a bad one and looked to be a miscommunication, but he ended practice with two touchdown passes -- one to rookie Garrett Wilson and the other to Davis. The 22-year-old signal-caller will be expected to decrease his turnovers in Year 2, and he has plenty of offensive weapons to take a leap forward in his sophomore season. But until we actually see it in the regular season, he'll be a low-end QB2 in fantasy.

  • Corey Davis Loses 10-15 Pounds

    New York Jets wide receiver Corey Davis said he lost 10 to 15 pounds and is now down to 205 pounds at training camp. He said he feels faster and that "my joints are thanking me." Davis played in only nine games due to injuries last year in the first year of a three-year, $37.5 million contract. The 27-year-old finished 2021 with a career-low-tying 34 receptions (59 targets) for 492 yards and four touchdowns. With Elijah Moore on the rise and with the Jets adding rookie wideout Garrett Wilson, Davis could struggle for consistent targets on a weekly basis. Davis also had surgery to fix groin and core-muscle injuries. There's a chance that he could shift to the slot in 2022, but his fantasy stock has fallen considerably, and he's likely to go undrafted in standard 12-team leagues.

  • Kwon Alexander Signs With Jets

    Veteran free-agent linebacker Kwon Alexander signed an undisclosed one-year deal with the New York Jets on Thursday, according to multiple reports. Alexander played for head coach Robert Saleh in San Francisco but spent most of the last two seasons with the New Orleans Saints after the Niners traded him in 2020. He was originally a fourth-round pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2015 out of LSU. In 12 games (eight starts) for the Saints last season, the 27-year-old had 50 tackles (39 solo), a career-high 3.5 sacks, seven tackles for loss, seven QB hits, one interception, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Alexander is expected to push Quincy Williams and/or Hamsah Nasirildeen for a role at outside linebacker in New York.

  • Zach Wilson Getting Better At Improvising

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson "looks much more comfortable doing that than he did a year ago," head coach Robert Saleh said about Wilson's ability to improvise and make plays on his own. Improvisation is expected to become a bigger part of Wilson's game in his second NFL season. Wilson was facing constant pressure in training camp practice on Thursday, but he didn't turn the ball over and completed seven of 10 passes. The 22-year-old added muscle in the offseason and is looking to make a Year 2 leap with plenty of weapons in the passing game. Wilson has all the physical tools to be successful as a starter, but until he improves his accuracy and decision-making, he'll continue to be a QB2 with upside.

  • Mekhi Becton Still A Possibility At Left Tackle

    New York Jets left tackle Mekhi Becton's left-tackle days "aren't over," according to head coach Robert Saleh. Becton was drafted 11th overall in 2020 out of Louisville and had a strong rookie season, starting 13 games for the Jets. However, it's been all downhill since then, as he played in just one game last year before tearing his MCL and never returning. Backup George Fant stepped in nicely on quarterback Zach Wilson's blind side in 2021 after Becton was injured, but there's still a chance that Becton could win his starting job back if he proves he's fully healthy in training camp. If Becton isn't up to the task, the Jets could move him to right tackle.

  • Rashard Davis Inks Deal With Jets

    The New York Jets reached an agreement with wide receiver/punt returner Rashard Davis on Tuesday, according to his agent. Davis won a National Championship at James Madison, a Super Bowl with the Philadelphia Eagles and led the USFL in return yardage for the Tampa Bay Bandits. The 26-year-old has played in only one game in the NFL, back in 2019 with the Tennessee Titans, when he returned two punts for nine yards. He also caught his only target for 16 yards in that same game. Davis will attempt to latch on with the Jets as mostly a special-teamer.
