Summary

The Jets did a lot to add weapons for Sam Darnold to use, with LeVeon Bell and Jamison Crowder joining a solid, but unspectacular group of Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson and second year tight end Chris Herndon. There are a lot of question marks, though, with a new coach in Adam Gase, who has yet to prove he can manage a young quarterback to greatness, and an offensive line which still needs to get better. It's a lot of question marks to throw at a second-year quarterback who struggled early last season. On the bright side, Bell will be a great option out of the backfield, Crowder is the answer for slot duties and Darnold got much better as the season moved forward. Still, it's unlikely the former USC Trojan will be more than a spot start for fantasy purposes, even if his upside is high. Jets fans will be looking for some nice steps forward, but that won't be enough to make him a safe start for fantasy owners. (May 29)
