Chris Johnson (ankle) is probable for Monday night's Week 3 game against the Bears.

Johnson missed a few practice reps this week, but will be ready to roll in a favorable matchup. Unfortunately for Johnson, he's clearly the less effective back between he and Chris Ivory. But the Jets continue to give Johnson more touches. We prefer Ivory in fantasy. Johnson is barely on the FLEX radar this week.

Jets CB Dee Milliner (quad, ankle) is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Bears.

Milliner missed practice again on Saturday and could be looking at a multi-week setback. He's not going to play against the Bears. With the Jets playing on Monday night, Milliner isn't a lock to return in Week 4.
Sep 20 - 3:39 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday night's Week 3 game against the Bears.

Decker was able to get in a limited practice on Saturday, and coach Rex Ryan is confident he'll be available this week. His status is shaping up as a game-time decision, and may not be known until Monday night. Decker should be considered a high-risk WR3. Jeremy Kerley would likely lead the Jets in targets if Decker is held out.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini believes its "time to unleash" TE Jace Amaro.

With Eric Decker's (questionable, hamstring) status up in the air, Amaro could be forced into an expanded role this week. He's played on just 30 percent of offensive snaps to this point, but would be the best candidate for red-zone looks if Decker doesn't play. Amaro has two catches on five targets through two games.
Sep 20 - 2:38 PM

Jets CB Dee Milliner missed practice on Friday with a quad injury.

Milliner just got over a high-ankle sprain and returned to the lineup last week. His status for Week 3 against the Bears on Monday night is now in question. The Jets have surrendered the most fantasy points to opposing receivers. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery should both eat, even if Milliner plays.

Eric Decker (hamstring) remained sidelined at Jets practice Friday.

Coach Rex Ryan remains confident Decker will be available Monday night against the Bears, and says Decker doesn't have to practice to play. With few pass-game alternates outside of Jeremy Kerley in the Jets-Bears game to hold in case Decker misses, owners with other WR3 options would be wise to plug them in over Decker. It'd be nice to see Decker practice Saturday afternoon.
Sep 19 - 1:55 PM

Chris Johnson was limited in Thursday's practice with an ankle injury.

The Jets are almost certainly just limiting CJ?K's reps. We haven't seen any reason to worry about his Week 3 status. Johnson has an enticing matchup in the Bears, but we expect Chris Ivory to be the main beneficiary. Johnson is an uninspiring RB3.
Sep 18 - 2:29 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) was held out of Thursday's practice.

Coach Rex Ryan is "confident" Decker will be available for Monday's game against the Bears, but that could change if Decker doesn't progress over the next two days of practice. The current plan is for Decker to "test" his hamstring by Saturday. For now, Decker should be considered a high-risk WR3.
Sep 18 - 1:38 PM

Eric Decker did not even need an MRI on the hamstring he injured in the Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

It's pretty surprising considering this is an aggravation of the right hammy issue that bothered Decker during training camp. But no need for an MRI confirms that this is a very mild strain, one that he could very well play through on Monday night. We'll know more based on practice reports over the next three days.
Sep 18 - 8:51 AM

According to ESPN New York, Eric Decker (hamstring) remains "on pace" to play in Monday night's game against the Bears despite missing Wednesday's practice.

Coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday he's "confident" Decker "will be ready ... but I should say I guess I’m hopeful that (Decker) will play." Decker may get in very little practice time ahead of Monday night's game, but the extra day to prepare should help. Although Decker has been a WR2 to this point, he should be treated more along the lines of a WR3 option this week due to the injury.
Sep 17 - 8:41 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Decker stretched with the team and spent the rest of the practice off to the side doing agility drills and some light running under the supervision of trainers. Decker first injured his hamstring in training camp. The Jets have been quiet on their No. 1 receiver's status. Decker will be updated again on Thursday.
Sep 17 - 4:07 PM

Jets coach Rex Ryan was vague Monday when asked if Eric Decker (hamstring) would play in Week 3.

The Jets face the Bears in their next game, Week 3 on Monday Night Football. "We don't know," said Ryan. "We'll see. Hopefully he'll be ready to roll on Monday." The long week helps, but our hope is the Jets don't push Decker to play if he's not near 100 percent. This is an aggravation of an August injury.
Sep 15 - 4:57 PM

Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson each played 27 snaps in Sunday's loss at Green Bay.

It's further proof that Johnson is the starter in name only. Through two weeks, CJ?K has 31 touches on 60 snaps and Ivory has 24 touches on 57 snaps. Of course, Ivory has been far more effective as he's averaging 6.30 YPC with two touchdowns on the ground vs. 3.56 YPC and zero rushing touchdowns for Johnson. Ivory will be a flex option against the Bears in Week 3.
Sep 15 - 8:32 AM

The right hamstring Eric Decker injured during Sunday's loss at Green Bay is the same one that nagged him throughout training camp.

Recurring hamstring woes are major issues for wide receivers. Decker is headed for further testing on Monday to determine the severity, but this pull is believed to be more severe than his training camp one. If the ex-Bronco has to miss time, Geno Smith will have Jeremy Kerley and David Nelson as his top wideouts. The Jets host the Bears in Week 3.
Sep 15 - 7:50 AM

Jace Amaro caught one pass for six yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

Jeff Cumberland saw two targets, Tommy Bohanon got two and Zach Sudfeld got one. In other words, the Jets aren't scheming the tight-end and H-back looks to their pass-catching rookie. Amaro has two catches on five targets through two games.
