2015 Fantasy Football Preview: New York Jets

The New York Jets might just be a good QB away from having a nice offense. However, the lack of a serviceable QB hurts both the team and its fantasy football value. The Jets added a few RBs, which hurts Chris Ivory's value. On the plus side, they have some solid pieces at wide receiver. 


Geno Smith

Nope. Don't even think about it. 

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Fitzpatrick has proven himself in the past, but he looks stuck behind Smith. Even if he was the starter, Fitzpatrick wouldn't be worth drafting. 

Running Back:

Chris Ivory

Ivory finished 19th among fantasy RBs last season, but I expect a decline this season. The Jets already had Bilal Powell and added Stevan Ridley and Zac Stacy. The whole situation screams running back-by-committee. Plus, Chan Gailey's offenses tend to favor smaller, quicker backs. 

Stevan Ridley

He's coming off an injury and I want to see how he does away from New England before I trust him. 

Zac Stacy

He forced his way out of St. Louis, but New York isn't much of an improvement for his fantasy stock.

Bilal Powell

Chris Johnson took most of Powell's chances last season, but Johnson is no longer in New York. Powell is worth monitoring, but not drafting. 

Wide Receiver: 

Brandon Marshall 

Marshall is still talented, but going from Chicago and Jay Cutler to New York and Geno Smith is a massive downgrade. He's still worth picking as a low-end WR2, but his days as a WR1 might be over. 

Eric Decker

With Marshall in town, Decker is no longer the top WR option. He finished 28th among fantasy WRs last year and should only suffer a slight drop. He's still worth taking as a quality backup. 

Jeremy Kerley

If the Jets had more success passing the ball, Kerley might have some value, especially in PPR leagues. Instead, he's not worth drafting. 

Devin Smith

A classic burner, Smith is a few years (and a good QB) away from making an impact. 

Tight End:

Jace Amaro

The former second round pick has upside, but he's not worth investing in yet.
