  • Randall Cobb Expected To Be Included In Rotation

    Headshot for Randall Cobb

    New York Jets wide receiver Randall Cobb inked a one-year deal with the team this offseason. With New York adding Aaron Rodgers in April, many felt the club signed Cobb solely to appease the future Hall of Fame signal-caller. However, while that may be partially accurate, Rich Cimini of ESPN reported that Cobb "is very much part of the receiver rotation." The 32-year-old entered the league in 2011 and has totaled 625 catches, 7,585 yards, and 53 touchdowns in 155 games, mostly with the Packers. He's battled injuries over the years and is coming off one of the worst seasons of his career. But Cimini labeled Cobb the "only pure slot receiver on the roster" while mentioning his longstanding relationship with Rodgers. Of course, Cobb's best days are probably well behind him. That said, if he can stay healthy, he could easily have a few productive fantasy showings in 2023-24. On the other hand, the veteran likely won't be a consistent performer, considering the Jets' depth at the position.

    Aaron Rodgers‘ Green Bay departure would have been far messier had it occurred in 2021, when he requested to be moved. But the divorce, coming after a prolonged trade negotiation, has still produced a stream of headlines. The new Jets quarterback attempted to set the record straight regarding a few key 2020s Packers plotlines. Shortly […]

  • Aaron Rodgers Is Fine

    Headshot for Aaron Rodgers

    New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said that quarterback Aaron Rodgers (calf) is "fine," but he will be limited in organized team activities on Wednesday. The Jets are working to get Rodgers practicing in full by next week. The hope is that the 39-year-old future Hall of Famer will be back practicing in full by this Friday after he suffered a minor calf strain in practice last week. It's a reminder that Rodgers isn't a spring chicken anymore, but he should be just fine for training camp this summer and the start of the regular season this fall. The former Green Bay Packers signal-caller has better offensive weapons around him in 2023 than he did in his final year with the Cheeseheads, but fantasy managers should still view him as more of a high-end QB2 than a QB1 in what could be the final season of his illustrious career.

  • Robert Saleh Optimistic Breece Hall Will Be Ready For Week 1

    Headshot for Breece Hall

    New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said he is "very optimistic" that running back Breece Hall (knee) will be ready for Week 1 of the 2023 regular season. The Athletic's Zack Rosenblatt mentioned in an article on Tuesday that he'd be surprised if Hall was ready to go on Day 1 of training camp, but apparently the Jets are optimistic that he'll still be ready to go for the start of the regular season. The second-year back isn't taking part in organized team activities after tearing his ACL last October, and the Jets aren't going to rush him back onto the field before he's ready. Despite the injury concerns, Hall has legitimate RB1 upside, especially now that the Jets have quarterback Aaron Rodgers running the offense this year.

  • Michael Carter Could Bounce Back In 2023

    Headshot for Michael Carter

    New York Jets running back Michael Carter's numbers took a step back in 2022 after he turned in a solid effort in his rookie season. According to the Athletic's Zach Rosenblatt, the Jets believe that a bounce-back season is in store for Carter in 2023. With rookie star Breece Hall likely to be eased back early in the year after suffering a torn ACL last season, Carter could be asked to help pick up the slack. With 77 catches on 109 targets through two seasons, Carter has some low-end flex appeal in PPR leagues.

    The top remaining priority in what has been a busy Jets offseason is finalizing a new deal for defensive tackle Quinnen Williams.

    Headshot for Quinnen Williams

    According to Brian Costello and Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post, there's "still confidence" the Jets and defensive lineman Quinnen Williams will get a deal done, possibly by "mid-June." The 25-year-old is coming off a fantastic season, totaling 55 tackles and two forced fumbles. He also had a career-high 12 sacks and made the Pro Bowl. Williams is expected to command well over $20 million per season in a new contract. But with the Jets looking to make a deep postseason run, keeping him happy may be in the team's best interest.

    Things changed significantly for the Ravens at the safety position during the 2022 offseason. One of the results of their moves made on the backend was veteran Chuck Clark being traded at the start of the 2023 league year.

  • Jets Sign Jerome Kapp

    Headshot for Bradlee Anae

    The New York Jets signed undrafted rookie wide receiver Jerome Kapp to an undisclosed deal this week and placed defensive lineman Bradlee Anae (undisclosed) on the Injured Reserve in a corresponding move. Kapp took part in the team's rookie minicamp earlier this month. In his final collegiate season at Kutztown, he produced 47 catches for 916 yards and nine touchdowns. In three total seasons at Kutztown, Kapp caught 122 passes for 2,190 yards and 22 touchdowns over 36 games. He'll be a long shot to make the team's active roster out of training camp this summer, but he could stick on the team's practice squad.

  • Allen Lazard OK After Injury Scare Tuesday

    Headshot for Allen Lazard

    New York Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard (groin) said on his official Twitter account that he's fine after an injury scare on Tuesday during organized team activities. Lazard was hit in a sensitive area and was able to finish the day of practice. The 27-year-old should be just fine for the rest of the week as he gets used to a new offense with the Jets. He was quarterback Aaron Rodgers' favorite target in Green Bay last year, recording a career-high 60 catches for 788 yards and six touchdowns in 15 starts, but he'll have more competition for targets in his new home among the likes of Garrett Wilson, Mecole Hardman and Corey Davis, among others. Lazard's big contract and familiarity with Rodgers should serve him well, though.

  • Aaron Rodgers Suffers Calf Strain Tuesday

    Headshot for Aaron Rodgers

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (calf) reportedly suffered a strained calf at organized team activities on Tuesday, according to sources. However, the injury is considered minor as of now, and the expectation is that he should be back fairly soon. Rodgers remained on the field after getting hurt in warmups and walked slowly from drill to drill. It was probably just a precautionary measure for the Jets to hold the future Hall of Famer out of drills after acquiring him in a trade with the Green Bay Packers this offseason. The 39-year-old signal-caller has a good chance to bounce back from one of his worst seasons in 2022 because of better offensive weapons in New York, but from a fantasy perspective, Rodgers is probably more of a high-end QB2/low-end QB1 at this point in his career.

  • Breece Hall Doing Work On The Side At OTAs

    Headshot for Israel Abanikanda

    Updating a previous report, New York Jets running back Breece Hall (knee) was seen doing side sprints on a side field at OTAs, which is a good sign for his recovery seven months after he suffered a torn ACL. Hall rushed 80 times for 463 yards (5.8 YPC) and four scores and caught 19 passes for 218 yards and one touchdown before the major knee injury in Week 7 against the Denver Broncos ended his rookie campaign. The team has publicly stated he could be back for Week 1 of the 2023 season, but it's too early to know if that will be the case. If he does miss time, Michael Carter, Israel Abanikanda, and Zonovan Knight will all get an opportunity to see work in the New York offense led by new quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

  • Breece Hall Not Taking Part In OTAs

    Headshot for Breece Hall

    New York Jets second-year running back Breece Hall (knee) and offensive tackle Mekhi Becton (knee) both will not be taking part in organized team activities this week. Head coach Robert Saleh told reporters in early April that Hall "looks fantastic" after tearing his ACL in October of his rookie season, but the team isn't going to push the 21-year-old this early in the offseason. We'll have a better idea of where Hall is at in his recovery in training camp this summer, but barring setbacks, he's expected to be ready for Week 1. Even if Hall is ready to go, though, the Jets could manage his workload early on and incorporate more Michael Carter or rookie Israel Abanikanda into the backfield. As a result, Hall should be considered more of a low-end RB1 heading into fantasy drafts this fall.

  • Carl Lawson Agrees To Restructured Deal

    Headshot for Carl Lawson

    New York Jets defensive end Carl Lawson agreed to a restructured contract on Thursday, according to a source. Lawson was due a non-guaranteed $15 million this year, but he'll now be due a base value of $9 million, with $8 million of it guaranteed. Lawson will have $3 million more available in incentives. The restructure creates $12.7 million in salary cap space in 2023 for the Jets. The 27-year-old is entering his second year for Gang Green in 2023 after he had 33 tackles (18 solo), seven sacks, nine tackles for loss, 24 QB hits and a fumble recovery in 17 regular season games in 2022. Lawson should once again have a pretty prominent pass-rushing role for the Jets' improved defense this year.

  • Jets Release Cedric Ogbuehi

    The New York Jets released veteran offensive lineman Cedric Ogbuehi on Thursday. Ogbuehi signed on for a second season with the Jets earlier this offseason, but he finds himself back on the open market already after the team signed Billy Turner and drafted Carter Warren to beef up their offensive line. The 31-year-old played in only seven games (five starts) for the Jets in 2022. He was originally a first-round selection by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2015 out of Texas A&M and spent the first four seasons of his career with the Bengals before jumping around with the Jaguars, Seahawks, Ravens and Jets. Ogbuehi has played in 67 games (35 starts) in his eight NFL seasons.

  • Jets Excited About Rookie Tight End Zack Kuntz

    New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh and general manager Joe Douglas are calling seventh-round draft pick Zack Kuntz a "freak" who could contribute his rookie year. "He's got freakish ability and he's got a love for football, so now we just got to work with him," Saleh said. At 6-foot-8, he matches the height of the two tallest tight ends in the NFL, Zach Gentry and Donald Parham. His 4.55 time in the 40-meter-dash is comparable to Mike Gesicki, but he is five pounds heavier, at 255. "We were sitting there at the top of the seventh round and just going through some of the guys who just had that freak factor to him and he was right there at the top," said Douglas. Kuntz had caught 11 passes for 141 yards and two touchdowns in the first four games of his senior season at Old Dominion before injuring his knee and missing the rest of the season.

  • Denzel Mims The "Odd Man Out"

    Headshot for Denzel Mims

    According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, New York Jets wide receiver Denzel Mims could be the "odd man out" when the team shrinks the roster to 53. Gang Green added Allen Lazard, Mecole Hardman Jr., and Randall Cobb in free agency. The club is also keeping Corey Davis on the roster. As a result, there may not be room for Mims. The 25-year-old was drafted by the Jets in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. In his three seasons, he's compiled only 42 catches for 676 yards while being held without a touchdown. Mims has expressed his displeasure with his role in the past, so a change of scenery may do him some good.

  • Garrett Wilson Focused On Adding Size

    Headshot for Garrett Wilson

    New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson is focused on adding size this offseason without sacrificing "speed and quickness." The Rookie of the Year ended his inaugural season at 181 pounds. However, he currently weighs 188 pounds, two pounds away from his goal. Wilson is coming off a magnificent season, finishing with 83 catches for 1,103 yards and four touchdowns. He also averaged 13.3 yards per reception. Even more impressive, the 22-year-old did that despite an unstable quarterback situation. Nevertheless, with Aaron Rodgers now under center along with some added mass, Wilson should be a force to be reckoned with in 2023-24.

  • Quinnen Williams, Jets Not Close On New Deal

    Headshot for Quinnen Williams

    According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, New York Jets defensive lineman Quinnen Williams and the team aren't close to a new deal. The 25-year-old is coming off a stellar season, totaling 55 tackles (35 solo) and two forced fumbles. He also had a career-high 12 sacks and made his first Pro Bowl. He already made it known he won't report for voluntary workouts. However, the Jets have Williams' rights for this season and can utilize the franchise tag in 2024, so the organization has some leverage. But considering New York has Super Bowl aspirations, remaining in a stalemate with the All-Pro isn't ideal.
