Jets claimed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins off waivers from the Bucs.

Jets OC Chan Gailey has a reputation for "not using tight ends," but he also has a reputation for maximizing talent, which Seferian-Jenkins obviously has in spades despite all of his issues off the field. Seferian-Jenkins was popped for DUI last week, leading to his release from the Bucs. Picking him up is an extremely low-risk, high-upside maneuver by Jets GM Mike Maccagnan. Assuming Seferian-Jenkins is intent on continuing his football career, he should be able to earn a role in the offense by the middle of next month. ASJ still lacks re-draft value, but he remains a hold in Dynasty leagues.

Bilal Powell hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 41 yards and rushed four times for 30 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

With the Jets in comeback mode in the second half, Powell saw plenty of targets down the stretch and actually ended up leading the team in catches and receiving yards. He was more involved on third downs and in obvious passing situations this week, but Matt Forte remains the clear lead back. Powell is just a handcuff at this point.
Sep 25 - 7:49 PM

Quincy Enunwa hauled in 3-of-11 targets for 37 yards Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Enunwa's 11 targets led the team, but he was not able to do much with the work outside from a good run in the third quarter culminating in a fourth-down conversion down to the Chiefs' five-yard line. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw an interception two plays later. The passing game will have better days, but next week against Seattle is unlikely to be one of them. Enunwa should be sat in that contest.
Sep 25 - 7:47 PM

Brandon Marshall hauled in 3-of-8 targets for 27 yards Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Marshall sat out a few snaps, but he did not seem particularly limited by the knee injury which kept him out of practice most of the week. He was not given a chance on most of his targets, dropped another, and was questionably ruled out of bounds on a one-handed grab in the end zone in the second half. That catch would have made his fantasy day look a lot better, but the reality is no one on the Jets played well enough to deserve a good fantasy day. Marshall should play next week, but he has another tough date with the Seahawks.
Sep 25 - 7:42 PM

Matt Forte rushed 15 times for 65 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for -1 yard Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Forte again looked good, getting everything that was blocked and creating yards on his own with great moves in the backfield. Unfortunately, the offense struggled to get anything going all game, and OC Chan Gailey apparently forgot Forte existed when the team was in the red zone. Gailey did, on the other hand, allow Ryan Fitzpatrick to throw three end-zone interceptions. Things will not get any easier against the Seahawks next week, but Forte’s workload keeps him in the RB1 conversation.
Sep 25 - 7:39 PM

Eric Decker caught 1-of-6 targets for 31 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

And with this horrendous performance by the Jets offense, Decker’s streak of 18 consecutive games with 80 yards or a touchdown is snapped. Decker had just one target in the first half, and he did not get his first catch until early in the fourth quarter. Decker was targeted in the end zone in the second half, but Eric Berry went up high to break up the pass. Ryan Fitzpatrick was terrible Sunday, and it will not get any easier with the Seahawks coming to town next week. Still, Decker will be a good bet to start a new streak in that game.
Sep 25 - 7:37 PM

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 20-of-44 passes for 188 yards, zero touchdowns, and SIX interceptions in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

It is the most interceptions in a game since Ty Detmer tossed seven in 2001. Needless to say, Fitzpatrick was dreadful Sunday. His stared down his targets, overthrew receivers, and tried to force the ball into tight windows when the offense was not working late in the game. He was intercepted thrice in the end zone, threw two passes that should have been picked in the three plays before his fourth interception, and effectively ended the game with a pick-six late in the fourth quarter. The Jets’ final five drives all ended with interceptions. Fitz has now sandwiched a poor and a career-ending performance around a stellar game in Buffalo. The ups and downs should continue all year, but it will likely be all down next week against the Seahawks. He can be safely sat in that contest.
Sep 25 - 7:25 PM

Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) is officially active for Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Marshall is expected to be on a snap count, but he should see plenty of work on third downs and especially in the red zone. Those high-value snaps keep him in the WR2 conversation despite the limited work. New York declared ILB Erin Henderson, QB Bryce Petty, QB Christian Hackenberg, RB Troymaine Pope, CB Darryl Roberts, LB Mike Catapano, and OT Brandon Shell inactive for Week 3.
Sep 25 - 3:01 PM

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini reports ILB David Harris (shoulder, questionable) will play Week 3 against the Chiefs.

It is good news with Erin Henderson (foot, questionable) unlikely to play after sitting out all week. First-round ILB Darron Lee should get the start next to Harris.
Sep 25 - 10:14 AM

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) could be used situationally Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Adam Schefter reported earlier Sunday Marshall would be on a snap count, so it would make sense to use him primarily on third downs and in the red zone. Cimini also floats the idea Marshall could be a decoy to occupy Marcus Peters. Even with Marshall active, Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa should see a bump in targets.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Brandon Marshall (knee/foot) is expected to play at Kansas City, but he will be on a snap count.

Schefter also tweeted something about the weather in Kansas City being "bad," although Weather.com has Arrowhead experiencing a 0-15 percent chance of rain with mild winds (8-10 MPH) and temperatures in the 70s during Sunday's game. We're not concerned about the weather at all. The snap-count concern should downgrade Marshall from a WR1 to a WR2/3, but snap counts do have a tendency to be thrown to the wind if a player starts hot. Schefter reported Marshall's knee "felt much better" on Saturday.
Sep 25 - 7:54 AM

ESPN New York expects Brandon Marshall (questionable, knee/foot) to play Sunday.

Marshall only got in one limited practice, but the missed reps aren't a huge concern to his Week 3 status. Marshall clearly isn't fully healthy despite playing through his knee injury last week and remains a game-time decision. He's trending toward being active.

Updating a previous item, Austin Seferian-Jenkins is still on waivers.

NFL Network reported that Seferian-Jenkins cleared waivers, but teams have until Monday to make a claim. Either way, it's unlikely anyone picks up the $1.9 million left on ASJ's rookie deal. Seferian-Jenkins has two DUIs in the last four years.
Sep 24 - 5:10 PM

Jets coach Todd Bowles said he is not concerned about Matt Forte's early-season workload.

Forte is on pace for 472 touches, but neither OC Chan Gailey nor Bowles seems to care. "I like to see us successful," Bowles said. "If we can ride somebody, we’ll ride him, whether it be a receiver, quarterback or running back. It really doesn’t matter." Bilal Powell has been an afterthought this season, but he is a hold with the Jets seemingly intent on running the 30-year-old Forte into the ground.
Sep 24 - 11:06 AM

Brandon Marshall (knee, foot, questionable) said he is "not where I want to be" in his recovery.

Marshall was able to get in a limited practice Friday, but he did not sound like a player confident about playing. "You want to be an asset to the team, not a liability. But I will do everything I can to be out there, and it will be coach’s decision," Marshall said. "The good thing is there’s still time." Marshall is shaping up as a true game-time decision in an afternoon kick. Owners need to have a backup plan in place.
