Week 3: at New England Patriots
FBG says: Bad matchup. The Jets passing game has taken a turn for the worst as we saw on Monday. Sam Darnold is out with mono, Trevor Siemian who was ineffective prior to his injury is out for the season with an ankle injury and the team has signed David Fales off the street to backup Luke Falk who primarily played the role of game manager just checking the ball down to Le'Veon Bell who caught 10 passes in this game. For Falk's first time ever being active for an NFL game, he was not terrible, and actually played better than Siemian did for most of the game. This will be an offense that will go through Bell in the passing game and taking an occasional shot play to Robbie Anderson. The Patriots pass defense is one of the more dominant units in the NFL. Led by the best cornerback in football in Stephon Gilmore, and Jason McCourty who has been tremendous since he came to New England to play alongside his brother Devin McCourty and Duron Harmon at the safeties. This is a unit that is second in sacks, eighth in passing yards allowed, and have only allowed three total points as most of their passing yards have come in the second half while the game was out of hand. This is a unit that is built to be an elite pass defending unit and thus far have shut-down Ben Roethlisberger and the abysmal Dolphins. The Jets will have their handful in this game in what might be the best defense in football.

Latest NewsJets | Week 3 New York Jets inactives (Sun Sep 22, 11:43 AM) - The New York Jets have declared QB Sam Darnold, WR Demaryius Thomas, DE John Franklin-Myers, LB Jordan Jenkins, DT Quinnen Williams, DE Jordan Willis and LB C.J. Mosley inactive for Week 3. Our View: Mosley being out is a big blow for this defense. His loss turned the tide in the Week 1 game vs. the Bills.
link to story Jets | Demaryius Thomas listed as doubtful (Fri Sep 20, 06:26 PM) - New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 20, and is listed as doubtful for Week 3. Our View: Thomas is not the player he used to be and the Jets are likely to shut him down for Week 3. We'll continue to see Robby Anderson outside, along with Josh Bellamy, and Jamison Crowder mans the slot. With Luke Falk starting at quarterback, Anderson is a WR4 or Crowder is a low-end WR3...and obviously both would be considered deep flex plays this week against the Patriots.
link to story Jets | NY Jets' Thursday practice report (Thu Sep 19, 04:16 PM) - New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (illness), LB C.J. Mosley (groin), WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee), DL Quinnen Williams (ankle) and LB Jordan Jenkins (calf) were unable to practice Thursday, Sept. 19. WR Josh Bellamy (shoulder), RB Trenton Cannon (ankle, hamstring), OL Kelvin Beachum (ankle), DL Steve McLendon (hip), S Rontez Miles (hip), CB Brian Poole (groin) and OL Brian Winters (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis. WR Braxton Berrios (hamstring), DL John Franklin-Myers (foot), LB Harvey Langi (knee), OL Alex Lewis (shoulder), LB Frankie Luvu (hand) and S Marcus Maye (calf) fully participated in practice. Our View: Mosley was the key to the Week 1 game vs. Buffalo. If he's out vs. New England, it should be a lot easier going for the Patriots offense.
link to story Jets | Demaryius Thomas still out (Thu Sep 19, 12:13 PM) - New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring/knee) was not spotted at practice Thursday, Sept. 19, missing workouts for the second straight day. Our View: Thomas is old and broken down. When healthy, he could provide the Jets with some punch at the WR position but not that much and certainly not as much as we remember when he was at the top of his game with the Broncos years ago.

WR Braxton Berrios (hamstring), LB Harvey Langi (knee), OL Alex Lewis (shoulder), LB Frankie Luvu (hand), S Marcus Maye (calf) and DE John Franklin-Myers (foot) were all full participants. link to story More News
