Austin Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to return from suspension this week.

Considering the Jets' situation at tight end, it would be a shock if he was not activated this week and in the starting lineup against the Dolphins on Sunday. Owning any piece of this passing game is not appealing, but Seferian-Jenkins is at least a weapon for a team which needs one. He has low-end streaming appeal.

Bilal Powell played 18-of-56 snaps Week 2 against the Raiders.

It was nine fewer than Matt Forte and just seven more than Elijah McGuire. In a timeshare on the worst offense in the league, Powell cannot be trusted in fantasy lineups right now, and he is a drop candidate in shallow leagues.
Sep 18 - 10:03 AM

Josh McCown completed 17-of-25 passes for 166 yards and two touchdowns in a 45-20 loss to the Raiders in Week 2.

He added 31 yards on the ground with no interceptions and one fumble to actually give him a decent fantasy day -- the bar is very low. The Jets fall to 0-2 for the first time since 2007, and they'll likely be major underdogs in every road game this season. The Raiders blitzed McCown throughout this game and sacked him four times, so expect McCown to face pressure all season. He would be a low-end QB2 at best against the Dolphins in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 8:19 PM

Matt Forte rushed nine times for 53 yards against the Raiders in Week 2.

He added four catches and 38 receiving yards. Forte was one of the bright spots for the Jets, but it really doesn't matter in this offense. He out-snapped Bilal Powell 28-17, which was a bigger difference than the 35-30 lead in Week 1 -- the Jets being blown out could've been a factor. Forte can't be trusted in fantasy right now and may need to be on another team to have value.
Sep 17 - 8:13 PM

Bilal Powell rushed six times for 13 yards and failed to catch his two targets against the Raiders in Week 2.

Not good. Powell played just 17 snaps, which trailed Matt Forte's 28 and only led Elijah McGuire by five. Powell is coming off a rough 41-yard game in Week 1, so his arrow is trending down. Powell's fantasy owners should hang tight unless someone like Chris Carson is available, but there's almost no way he could be started in the lowly Jets offense.
Sep 17 - 8:08 PM

Jeremy Kerley caught 3-of-4 targets for 14 yards against the Raiders in Week 2.

In his first active game this season, Kerley was just one snap behind Robby Anderson and five behind Jermaine Kearse. He's still not someone fantasy owners need to add in just about all leagues.
Sep 17 - 8:03 PM

Elijah McGuire rushed six times for 29 yards and caught one pass for seven yards against the Raiders in Week 2.

He looks to be in the mix now and saw 12 snaps. McGuire started the third series and the Jets used him in different situations throughout the game, so this wasn't about the garbage time. You're obviously not going to use him in almost any league, but owners in super deep leagues can think about stashing him if Matt Forte or Bilal Powell are not on the active roster at some point.
Sep 17 - 8:00 PM

Robby Anderson caught 2-of-4 targets for 28 yards against the Raiders in Week 2.

For the second game a row, Jermaine Kearse overshadowed him. Anderson is having a tough time getting open and corners continue to jam him. Most fantasy owners should be able to do better.
Sep 17 - 7:54 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 4-of-5 targets for 64 yards and two touchdowns against the Raiders in Week 2.

You could call him the big fish in the little pond of the Jets receiver corps. Kearse led all of the offensive weapons with his 49 snaps on the 56 plays, and Josh McCown looked for him on shorter and longer routes. His first TD came on a 34-yard ball down the sideline on third down, and his second one was for 11 yards. The Jets defense has the look of a turnstile, so they'll be playing behind from a lot this year. Kearse is worth a speculative look in most leagues, but it'll be hard to start him and expect much upside.
Sep 17 - 7:52 PM

Coach Todd Bowles said Bryce Petty will be the Jets' No. 2 quarterback "for the foreseeable future."

Petty was a Week 1 inactive behind Christian Hackenberg, but the Jets have made it clear that was injury related. Now that he's healthy, Petty is locked in as Josh McCown's backup. With the Jets tanking, it won't be surprising if Petty makes starts this season.
Sep 17 - 7:49 PM

Freddie Bishop (ankle) is questionable to return to Week 2 against the Raiders.

He is a practice squad call-up, but the Jets were using him on first down today. Bishop isn't an every-down player, though.
Sep 17 - 5:20 PM

Brian Winters (groin) is questionable to return to Week 2 against the Raiders.

He was laying on his stomach on the sidelines, and later talked to the team doctors. Dakota Dozier will take over while Winters is out.
Sep 17 - 5:18 PM

Jets declared QB Christian Hackenberg, CB Derrick Jones, S Rontez Miles, LB Bruce Carter, OL Jonotthan Harrison, TE Eric Tomlinson and TE Jordan Leggett inactive for Week 2 against the Raiders.

Hackenberg was the No. 2 quarterback last week, but this week it'll be Bryce Petty. Needless to say, Hackenberg has quite the uphill climb on his hands.
Sep 17 - 2:51 PM

Jeremy Kerley is active to face the Raiders in Week 2.

After the Jets signed him on Sept. 5, he was inactive as a healthy scratch last week. Kerley did have some success as the slot guy in New York from 2011-15 and the Jets don't have that particular role figured out in their lowly offense. He could have value in deeper PPR leagues, but being on such a bad offense severely lowers his upside.
Sep 17 - 2:45 PM

Bryce Petty is the No. 2 quarterback against the Raiders for Week 2.

He was inactive for Week 1, but the Jets will flip him and Christian Hackenberg. Petty didn't exactly dazzle in the preseason and isn't on the fantasy radar.
