Rex Ryan - DT - Jets

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports a "couple of sources" reiterated that Rex Ryan to the Falcons as their head coach "seems natural."

This isn't the first we've seen a Rex-to-Atlanta rumor. Ryan interviewed for the head-coaching job that Mike Smith eventually got in 2008. Now, Smith is likely out. The Falcons recently made the switch to a 3-4 defense. While the offense is in fine shape only needing a piece or two, the defense needs an overhaul. Nobody has ever doubted Ryan's coaching ability. He just needs to find the right guy to run the offense. Cole reports the Falcons would try to keep OC Dirk Koetter on staff.

Percy Harvin returned to Jets practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Harvin will be fine for Week 16, but going up against one of the league's best secondaries with Geno Smith at quarterback, he's not a realistic WR3 for the fantasy finals.
Dec 18 - 1:42 PM

Percy Harvin (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

He should be fine for Week 16 against the Patriots after playing through the injury in Week 15. Harvin isn't a realistic fantasy option with Geno Smith at quarterback.
Dec 17 - 1:49 PM

Jets promoted S Rontez Miles from the practice squad.

CB Josh Thomas was waived in a corresponding roster move. A second-year undrafted free agent, Miles made one appearance in 2013. He'll serve on special teams if he's active for Week 16.
Dec 16 - 4:07 PM

Nick Mangold briefly left the Jets' Week 15 win over the Titans with a finger injury.

Mangold went down to one knee following a fourth-quarter play and was holding his hand gingerly as he walked off the field. Mangold has his hand examined on the sideline before re-entering the game. Mangold went for an X-ray following the game, and his status will be updated by Wednesday at the latest.
Dec 14 - 9:19 PM

Jace Amaro gained 20 yards on his lone target Week 15 against the Titans.

It is good to see Amaro back on the field, but he will not be a viable fantasy option this season. He is still a strong hold in Dynasty formats.
Dec 14 - 7:38 PM

Percy Harvin rushed once for 10 yards and was held without a catch Week 15 against the Titans.

Harvin did not appear to be bothered by his ankle injury. He looked fine on the 10-yard rush and had a good kickoff return in the third quarter. He could not haul in any of his three targets, though, and was a non-factor all game. Harvin has been inconsistent in his time with the Jets and cannot be trusted as anything more than a WR4 Week 16 against the Patriots.
Dec 14 - 7:36 PM

Eric Decker caught 7-of-11 targets for 100 yards Week 15 against the Titans.

Decker just stepped out of bounds on what would have been an 81-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but he still managed to crack the century mark for the first time as a Jet. Decker has turned around his season with 13 catches for 189 yards over the last two weeks, but he will not be a recommended option against the tough New England secondary Week 16.
Dec 14 - 7:32 PM

Chris Johnson rushed 10 times for 55 yards Week 15 against the Titans.

Johnson broke a late 37-yard run to set up the game-winning touchdown but was otherwise quiet in his return to Tennessee. Johnson has reclaimed an equal timeshare with Chris Ivory in the Jets' backfield, but he is not doing much with the work. He will be an RB4 against the Patriots Week 16.
Dec 14 - 7:26 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 12 times for 25 yards and a touchdown Week 15 against the Titans.

Ivory struggled against what had been a terrible rush defense, only managing 2.1 yards a carry. Ivory saved his fantasy day with a game-winning touchdown late in the fourth quarter, but overall it was a disappointing performance. Ivory will look to get back on track against the Patriots Week 16.
Dec 14 - 7:20 PM

Geno Smith completed 16-of-28 passes for 179 yards and a touchdown Week 15 against the Titans.

He added 16 yards on four rushing attempts. Geno struggled for long stretches of the game, holding the ball too long and throwing passes at receiver's feet. He also made an excellent throw to Eric Decker on a 48-yard catch and led an 11-play game-winning drive in the fourth quarter. Smith will play out the rest of the season as the Jets' starter, but he is not worth a look in fantasy leagues.
Dec 14 - 7:15 PM

Jets SS Calvin Pryor exited Week 15 against the Titans with a shoulder injury.

Pryor got his arm caught up behind him as he fell to the turf late in the first quarter. He stayed down on the ground for a while before walking off under his own power. He returned in the second half.
Dec 14 - 4:56 PM

Percy Harvin (ankle) is active for Week 15 against the Titans.

There were fears Harvin's season could have been over after suffering an ankle injury last week, but he will not even miss a game. Despite a big game against the Vikings last time out, Harvin is difficult to trust with Geno Smith running the show. The Jets declared DB Antonio Allen, OG Dakota Dozier, OL Wesley Johnson, WR Walter Powell, QB Matt Simms, DB Josh Thomas and DT Muhammad Wilkerson inactive for Week 15.
Dec 14 - 2:44 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Percy Harvin (ankle) is expected to play Week 15 against the Titans.

Harvin was able to practice Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. Even after his Week 14 outburst, Harvin can't be trusted with Geno Smith at quarterback.
Dec 14 - 10:38 AM

The New York Daily News doesn't expect Percy Harvin to take a pay cut in the offseason.

Harvin is due a non-guaranteed $10.5 million next year. He's established himself as the Jets' featured receiver since coming over from Seattle, but could be released if he's unwilling to restructure. GM John Idzik is on the hot seat and could be fired along with Rex Ryan. The Jets will be on the hook for a 2015 fourth-round pick if Harvin is on their roster next season.
