  Jets | Percy Harvin's role uncertain    Mon Oct 20, 02:24 PM

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin's role on offense will depend on how fast he can learn the playbook, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan said Harvin will return kicks for the team.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the team wants to force the ball to Harvin. They may look to use him in as many ways possible since they lack explosive players on their offense. Fantasy owners are best looking at Harvin as a WR3/flex play until we see what he can do with his new team.

  Jets | Percy Harvin deal official    Sat Oct 18, 06:54 PM

Updating previous reports, New York Jets WR Percy Harvin's trade to join the Jets is official.

Footballguys view: And there you have it. The Jets add a disgruntled--but incredibly talented--wide receiver to an offense that is in dire need of weapons. We'll see how he fits in alongside Eric Decker.

  Jets | Percy Harvin gets fresh slate    Fri Oct 17, 08:12 PM

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin is onto his third NFL team, and he looks for more success than with the Seattle Seahawks. In Minnesota, he averaged 7.3 targets per game with 61.2 receiving yards per game and 34.2 yards per game after the catch (YAC). He ranked sixth in YAC. In Seattle, he managed just 4.5 targets per game, with only 25.0 receiving yards per game, 17.0 yards per catch and he ranked 99th in the league in YAC.

  Jets | Jets on hook for Harvin's 2014 salary    Fri Oct 17, 07:57 PM

The New York Jets will pay WR Percy Harvin $7.1 million for the rest of the 2014 season, the last of the guaranteed money in a deal which runs through 2018. Harvin's salary for 2015 is $10.5 million.

  Jets | Acquire Percy Harvin    Fri Oct 17, 05:43 PM

The New York Jets acquired WR Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks Friday, Oct. 17, for a conditional draft pick.

Footballguys view: Harvin would seem to take a hit in value, but he wasn't exactly soaring with the Seahawks, and the Jets could be more inclined to force him the ball the way the Vikings did. Jermaine Kearse and Doug Baldwin both get bumps in targets, but the whole Seahawks offense loses an edge with Harvin's speed and big play threat gone. Rookie Paul Richardson's speed could help fill that void, but Russell Wilson seems like a less exciting fantasy QB today either way.

  Jets | Chris Ivory has 100-yard game    Thu Oct 16, 11:48 PM

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory had 21 carries for a season-high 107 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 7 game Thursday, Oct. 16. He also added four catches for 18 yards.

Footballguys view: The Jets continue to give Ivory twice as many touches as Chris Johnson, and he is delivering as one of the better lead backs in the NFL right now. He's a strong RB2 if he can keep this up and the Jets can stay in games.

  Jets | Jace Amaro doubled playing time in Week 6    Thu Oct 16, 02:29 PM

New York Jets TE Jace Amaro played 36 snaps in the team's Week 6 loss to the Denver Broncos after being stuck between 20 and 25 snaps in every game this year before that. He also doubled his season high in catches and scored a touchdown against the Broncos. Amaro could be emerging into QB Geno Smith's No. 2 target behind WR Eric Decker in the passing game.

Footballguys view: In a PPR league, Amaro was gold against the Broncos as he caught 10 catches. The yards weren't great considering all the targets (just 68)but he was targeted more than any other receiver in the red zone last week and that is a positive sign. We have him as a borderline TE1 this week despite Geno Smith being Geno Smith.

  Jets | Jace Amaro probable tomorrow night    Wed Oct 15, 04:58 PM

New York Jets TE Jace Amaro (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15, and is probable against the New England Patriots tomorrow night.

Footballguys view: The Jets need all the help they can get. Amaro looked good against the Broncos last week. We'll see if he can carry that momentum over to this week.

  Jets | Eric Decker limited at practice    Wed Oct 15, 04:41 PM

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: It's a short week for the Jets. They play against the Patriots on Thursday night. Decker has to be considered some sort of game-time decision. Fantasy owners planning on starting Decker need to have another option available just in case.

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, Oct. 14.

  Jets | Eric Decker limited at practice    Tue Oct 14, 04:38 PM

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) was limited in practice Tuesday, Oct. 14.

Footballguys view: Decker's hamstring is going to limit him for some time. That doesn't mean he's a bad fantasy start. We like Decker--even on a short week--as a WR3/flex play against the Patriots in Week 7.

Footballguys view: LOL at the NFL's 'virtual reality' practice report. Amaro was solid against the Broncos in Week 6. We're not as optimistic he can keep up that production level against the Patriots on Thursday night.

The New York Jets placed CB Dee Milliner (Achilles') on Reserve/Injured Monday, Oct. 13.

Footballguys view: The Jets already have a bad secondary. This injury won't help them hold up against the pass. Achilles' injuries aren't career-ending like they used to be, but it could be 9-12 months before Milliner is 100 percent.

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will start Thursday, Oct. 16, against the New England Patriots, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Footballguys view: Nobody can say that Geno Smith is not tough. The Jets OL was helpless to stop Von Miller and the Broncos pass-rushers on Sunday. He was under constant duress and performed poorly because of it. We'll see if the Jets can protect him better in Week 7.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and is questionable for Week 6 against the Denver Broncos. Head coach Rex Ryan said he had been hoping to see Decker do more in practice Friday.

Footballguys view: Don't risk Decker in your lineup unless you have no other viable option. There is no real fallback option to look at in the Jets passing offense with Jeremy Kerley ice cold, although Jace Amaro could become an interesting deep TE option if he can start to catch on.

  Jets | Eric Decker limited    Thu Oct 9, 02:06 PM

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: As we've said before, even if he plays will he 1) finish the game before the hamstring acts up again or 2) be able to produce with the disaster that is the quarterback position? We have him as a shaky WR4, but if you have any more reliable option, take it.

  Jets | Geno Smith has dealt with pressure    Thu Oct 9, 01:54 PM

New York Jets QB Geno Smith has been pressured on 31 percent of his dropbacks in his career, which is the third highest among quarterbacks in the NFL during that span.

Footballguys view: It's clear also that he isn't handling that pressure very well. He won't see less pressure this week against the Denver Broncos front seven, and given that he has played so poorly, missed meetings and is a few poor plays away from getting the hook again, we'd avoid him if for some reason you weren't already doing that.

  Jets | Eric Decker taking part in drills    Thu Oct 9, 12:15 PM

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) is participating in position drills during practice Thursday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: Even if Decker plays, he isn't a good bet in your fantasy lineup. He could play and then not finish the game as the hamstring flares up again. He could play and be fine, but his numbers could be sunk by poor quarterback play and a potent defense. He could be active but limited. We're betting he wants to play against his old team and prove ESPN analyst Mark Schlereth's "cry-baby" comment wrong but there are too many factors out of your control on this one. If you have to play him, don't expect more than WR4 numbers at best.
