NFL training camp is under way and that means news will start flowing from each team. How that news will be distributed in the time of Covid-19 restrictions is still to be seen, but news will get out one way or the other. We’ll take that news and give you our fantasy and betting analysis. And that news and analysis, including roster moves, injuries, all the way to hype videos, will be disseminated right here, on this very page for the New York Jets.
The Jets didn’t do much this offseason, but did upgrade their offensive line in the draft. If first-round pick Mekhi Becton can be a force early on, it will go a long way toward helping Sam Darnold this season. Overall though, they’ll need a lot go right to win games this year.
High fantasy/betting impact
* Seahawks acquired S Jamal Adams from the Jets in exchange for S Bradley McDougald, 2021 first- and third-round picks, and a 2022 first-round pick.
Adams was the Jets best defensive player and his absence will hurt an already weak unit. Darnold will need to pass a lot this season to make up deficits.
Low fantasy/betting impact
* Signed WR Donte Moncrief, Claimed DB Zane Lewis — August 31
* Claimed WR D.J. Montgomery off waivers — August 30
* Signed RB Pete Guerriero — August 25
* WR Vyncint Smith to have core muscle surgery and miss a month — Source — August 17
This boosts Breshad Perriman and Chris Herndon a little bit, but not enough to move them into a new fantasy tier.
* LB C.J. Mosley has opted out of the 2020 NFL season
Mosley had yet to do anything for the Jets, as he was injured last season and he played for the Ravens the season before. The bad news is that Mosley was a much needed piece that the team won’t have now.
