The New York Jets will be without CB Darrelle Revis (concussion) in Week 12 when they host the Miami Dolphins.
The Jets have struggled against the pass in recent weeks, allowing 295.4 passing yards per game over the last five weeks, and the absence of Revis won't help their cause. The Jets D/ST will be a middling fantasy option in Week 12 at home against Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins. Nov 26 - 2:04 AM

The New York Jets travel to Houston in Week 11 to face the Texans, who will likely be led by backup QB T.J. Yates.

The Jets are tied for the NFL lead in sacks over the last five weeks and should be able to pile up fantasy points against Yates. Yates threw his first regular season touchdown pass since 2011 last week and has a career completion rate of just 60.2 percent. The Jets D/ST is a top-tier fantasy option in Week 11.

The New York Jets will put their run defense to the test on Thursday night when they host the Buffalo Bills, the NFL's second-best rushing offense.

The Bills are averaging a hefty 141.6 rushing yards per game in 2015 and ran wild for 266 yards against Miami in Week 9. Both LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams went over 100 yards last week and will present a challenge for the Jets defense that is number one among NFL teams in stopping the run, allowing just 80.6 rushing yards per game. This battle of strengths will be exciting to watch on Thursday, when the Jets D/ST will be a top-10 fantasy option.
Nov 12 - 12:25 AM

The New York Jets defense will look to end a recent two-game slump in Week 9 when they host the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Jets D/ST was humming along nicely in 2015 until road trips to New England and Oakland, where the Jets were destroyed for 64 total points. The New York defense still boasts a stout front line and is very solid against the run, so fantasy owners should bet on a rebound from the Jets D/ST that is a top-10 option in Week 9.
Nov 7 - 10:20 AM

The New York Jets D/ST will look to bounce back in Week 8 after a rough performance at New England last Sunday.

The Jets allowed 30 points to New England, which was the first time in 2015 that DC Kacy Rodgers' group allowed more than 20 points to an opposing team. The Jets are still posting solid defensive numbers across the board, and boast the NFL's leading run defense. A road matchup with Oakland isn't as cushy as it once was, but the Jets D/ST is still a startable fantasy option this week.
Oct 30 - 2:26 AM

The New York Jets will travel to New England in Week 7 to face the Patriots, who lead the NFL in points per game.

This matchup will be an intriguing one on Sunday as the New York defense is first among NFL teams in scoring defense, allowing just 15 points per game. The Jets D/ST has been fantastic in fantasy leagues this season and will have a chance to face a top-notch offense in this difficult Week 7 matchup. This group is solid, but the rough matchup drops the Jets D/ST to the bottom of the top-12 in fantasy leagues this week.
Oct 23 - 4:31 AM

The New York Jets are allowing an NFL best 13.8 points per game in 2015 and will look to continue their solid play against Washington in Week 6.

Washington is 25th in scoring offense, averaging just 19.4 points per game and has yet to score more than 24 points in a single game this season. The Jets D/ST has been an outstanding fantasy contributor in 2015 while benefiting from 13 forced turnovers in four games. After a Week 5 bye, the Jets D/ST returns as a top Week 6 fantasy option.
Oct 17 - 1:49 AM

The New York Jets head into their Week 5 bye with 13 forced turnovers, the best mark in the NFL.

The Jets D/ST has racked up six interceptions and seven fumble recoveries through four games and has been an extremely productive fantasy contributor. With the exception of a Week 7 trip to New England, the remainder of the Jets' schedule looks very friendly from a defensive perspective. Expect the New York Jets D/ST to remain a strong fantasy option moving forward.
Oct 8 - 2:58 AM

New York Jets CB Buster Skrine will cover Miami wide receiver Jarvis Landry on Sunday when the Jets and Dolphins take the field in London.

"I’ll be ready for it," Skrine told the New York Daily News. "I’m just ready for the challenge. You always like to go against the best receiver." Landry has 230 receiving yards on the season and has hauled in at least eight passes in three Miami games in 2015. The Jets D/ST has been great against the pass this season, registering fourth among NFL teams in passing yards allowed, and third in opponent yards per pass attempt. This week, the Jets D/ST will be a top-five fantasy option when they play Miami.
Oct 3 - 10:44 PM

The New York Jets D/ST leads the NFL in creating turnovers, with 10 through the first two weeks of the NFL season.

The Jets recovered two fumbles and forced Andrew Luck to throw three interceptions in Week 2, which led to Todd Bowles' team getting the win on Monday night. This week, the Jet D/ST is a top fantasy play as they host the Philadelphia Eagles at MetLife Stadium. The Eagles were a disaster in Week 2, led by Sam Bradford who committed three turnovers in a loss to Dallas. The Jets D/ST will be a great option in Week 3 and beyond as they are looking at three straight home games.
Sep 25 - 1:35 AM

Cornerback Antonio Cromartie won't rush back to the playing field while dealing with a sprained left knee.

The Jets get an extra day of rest this week as they travel to Indianapolis to face the Colts on Monday night, but Cromartie told ESPN New York, "We'll see if I get a chance to practice. If I don't feel like I'm 100 percent and full speed, it wouldn't make sense." The Jets pass defense did a decent job in Week 1 against Cleveland but will face far better opposition this Week in Andrew Luck. The Jets D/ST isn't worth a start on the road this week in fantasy leagues.
Sep 16 - 11:44 PM

The New York Daily News called the release of linebacker Jason Babin "a surprise move" as the veteran failed to make the Jets roster.

The New York Jets will score some cap savings with the release of Babin, and new DC Kacy Rodgers apparently feels the Jets linebacker group is in fine shape without the vet. The Jets D/ST will be a solid Week 1 fantasy option at home against the Cleveland Browns.
Sep 5 - 5:18 PM

The Jets defense has given up 24 points on four drives when their starters have faced opposing starters this preseason.

This interesting nugget is courtesy of the New York Daily News, and is cause for alarm as the Jets begin to implement the scheme of new defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers. The Jets defense hauled in an NFL-low six interceptions in 2014, so forcing turnovers will be key for this unit as they attempt to build success under a new coaching staff. The Jets D/ST will be a worthwhile fantasy option in Week 1 as they host the Cleveland Browns at MetLife Stadium and attempt to pick on quarterback Josh McCown.
