Jace Amaro dropped six passes on 52 targets last year, the second-highest percentage in the NFL.
Only Lamar Miller had a worse drop rate. Amaro's head was spinning as he went from Texas Tech's spread offense to Marty Mornhinweg's West Coast system and he finished with just 38-345-2. Now he has to learn another system, but Chan Gailey's spread scheme fits Amaro's skill set much better. As the clear-cut starter and a playmaker who needs to be detached from the line, there's TE2 appeal here. A higher comfort level should result in fewer drops for Amaro. Apr 23 - 8:56 AM

A potential spread offense is expected to benefit Jets TE Jace Amaro.

New offensive coordinator Chan Gailey is an expert at getting his playmakers in space via spread formations. So it's a no-brainer to expect Amaro to take a leap forward in this scheme. He's essentially an oversized possession wideout at 6'5/265 and Gailey will be desperate for difference-makers -- especially if Percy Harvin is cut loose. Amaro is firmly on the TE2 radar heading into his second NFL season.

Jace Amaro caught 3-of-4 targets for 34 yards in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

The 49th overall pick in last May's draft, Amaro completed his nondescript rookie year with 38 catches for 345 yards and two touchdowns. Amaro didn't show much field-stretching ability, but is a quality possession-receiver prospect and a likely building block for the Jets' organization. The club will hope for a 2015 step forward from Amaro as its tight end of the future, although Amaro's statistical outlook is tough to gauge with so much uncertainty in New York's front office and at quarterback. We suspect he'll improve to the point where Amaro will become a fantasy TE2 option as a sophomore.
