Jets signed WR Rishard Matthews.

This comes just a week after Matthews said he was unlikely to sign with a team this season. With Quincy Enunwa (ankle) out indefinitely and Terrelle Pryor no longer on the roster, this is a good landing spot for Matthews, but it will likely take him some time to settle in. He is only deep-league stash at this point.

Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot, injured reserve) returned to practice last week.

McGuire cannot be activated until next week, but returning to practice when first eligible is a great sign for his health. With Bilal Powell's availability in question because of a neck injury, McGuire could return to a significant role behind Isaiah Crowell. He is worth a look in deep leagues.
Oct 23 - 10:03 AM

Jets S Doug Middleton is out for the season with a torn pectoral.

Middleton suffered the injury against the Vikings on Sunday. Middleton was filling in for Marcus Maye, who suffered a broken thumb Week 6 against the Colts. The Jets will have to turn to Terrence Brooks is Maye cannot make it back this week.
Oct 22 - 12:41 PM

Jets rookie RB Trenton Cannon rushed two times for four yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 69 yards in the Week 7 loss to the Vikings.

With Bilal Powell suffering a first-half neck injury, Cannon was elevated to Isaiah Crowell's change-of-pace. Cannon's 73 yards led the team while his 69 yards receiving were also a team-best. He did a bit of work on the final meaningless drive. But if Powell remains out, Cannon could play a bigger role next week in Chicago. He won't be a recommended fantasy play.
Oct 21 - 5:22 PM

Robby Anderson caught 3-of-10 targets for 44 yards in the Jets' Week 7 loss to the Vikings.

His 10 targets were a team-high, but Sam Darnold was not good while completing just 40.5% of his passes and overthrowing Anderson on a potential 81-yard touchdown bomb over the top when Anderson had separation. Anderson appeared to be shaken up in the second as he got tangled up with CB Xavier Rhodes, but he came back in the game. Anderson will try to rebound next week on the road against the Bears, but that's a tough matchup with a rookie quarterback.
Oct 21 - 5:19 PM

Chris Herndon caught 4-of-7 targets for 42 yards and one touchdown in the Jets' Week 7 loss to the Vikings.

Herndon is emerging as one Sam Darnold's favorite targets with touchdowns in back-to-back games. He nearly had a second score on Sunday, but it was called back as Herndon stepped out of bounds just before reaching the pylon. Herndon is very much a streaming option moving forward at a weak tight end position. The Jets will travel to face the Bears in Week 8.
Oct 21 - 5:09 PM

Isaiah Crowell rushed 11 times for 29 yards in the Jets' Week 7 loss to the Vikings.

He caught a 21-yard pass on three targets while committing a bad drop on another pass. Crowell has been battling ankle and foot issues in recent weeks but had to carry the load in this one with Bilal Powell leaving early in the first half with a neck injury. Crowell gets the Bears on the road in Week 8. Assuming he's healthy for it, Crowell will be a tough sell as an RB2/FLEX.
Oct 21 - 5:00 PM

Sam Darnold completed just 17-of-42 passes for 206 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in the Jets' 37-17, Week 7 loss to the Vikings.

Darnold was horrible with one of the worst quarterback performances of the season. He missed open receivers, overthrew Robby Anderson on a potential 81-yard touchdown, and was also hurt by a couple drops. The interceptions were a pass thrown right to CB Holton Hill, another tipped by Xavier Rhodes to Harrison Smith, and a drop-turned-INT by Charone Peake to Trae Waynes. Darnold was able to score a one-yard rushing touchdown to boost his stats, but his 40.5% completion rate is ugly. Darnold will be harassed next week in Chicago.
Oct 21 - 4:45 PM

Jermaine Kearse failed to catch either of his two targets in the Jets' 37-17, Week 7 loss to the Vikings.

Sam Darnold was horrendous in this one, throwing three interceptions, and completing just 40.5% of his passes, doing a lot of work on the final meaningless possession with dump-offs to Trenton Cannon out of the backfield. Kearse was a hot name in fantasy this week after he caught 9-of-10 targets for 94 yards against the Colts last week. He was expected to play a major role with Quincy Enunwa (ankle) and Terrelle Pryor (groin) both out. He wasn't targeted in the second half and had no chance on his two first-half ones. Kearse will be tough to get behind next week on the road in Chicago.
Oct 21 - 4:38 PM

Bilal Powell exited Week 7 against the Vikings with a neck injury and will not return.

Powell left early in the second quarter. Before exiting, he managed 20 yards on five carries and caught his lone target for a five-yard gain. With Powell out, it'll be all Isaiah Crowell and Trenton Cannon in the backfield.
Oct 21 - 2:34 PM

Isaiah Crowell is active for Week 7 against the Vikings.

Crowell has been dealing with an ankle injury, but he was always expected to play after handling 15 touches in Week 6. The Jets' Week 7 inactives are WR Quincy Enunwa, DL Folo Fatukasi, CB Derrick Jones, CB Trumaine Johnson, FS Marcus Maye, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, and CB Buster Skrine.
Oct 21 - 11:37 AM

Isaiah Crowell (foot) is expected to play against the Vikings in Week 7.

Crowell followed the same practice schedule as last week, getting in a limited session on Friday before eventually suiting up against the Colts. He'll again play through his questionable tag in a much tougher matchup against the Vikings' nightmarish front-seven. Crowell has been a boom-bust weekly performer reliant of long runs and/or short TDs, and that won't change in Week 7.
Oct 20 - 11:55 PM

Jets CB Buster Skrine (concussion) is out for Week 7 against the Vikings.

Skrine remains in the league's concussion protocol. Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs both get blow-up spots this week against New York's injury-gutted secondary.
Oct 19 - 1:17 PM

Trumaine Johnson (quad) is doubtful for Week 7 against the Vikings.

Johnson didn't practice all week and will likely miss a third straight game. With Buster Skrine (concussion) also sitting, Kirk Cousins should be able to tee off on New York's depleted secondary.
Oct 19 - 1:16 PM

Isaiah Crowell (foot) is questionable for Week 7 against the Vikings.

Crowell was unable to practice Wednesday and Thursday, but followed essentially the same routine last week before eventually playing against the Colts. Even if he does play, Crowell is a tough RB3 sell in a difficult matchup.
