Date: Team: Pos:

Jets placed WR Rishard Matthews on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

So ends Matthews' deeply-bizarre 2018. Matthews signed a bafflingly team-friendly extension with the Titans in August before forcing his way off the roster in September. He caught two passes in five games as a Jet after signing in late October. Going on 30, Matthews' strange season has his future NFL prospects looking uncertain.
Dec 18 - 4:49 PM

Trenton Cannon rushed seven times for 13 yards, tacking on three catches for another 24 yards in the Jets' failed comeback attempt against the Texans in Week 15.

Playing backup to Elijah McGuire (18/42/1), Cannon received seven carries and was involved through the air (four targets). McGuire still out-snapped Cannon 56-23, though, as this has clearly become the former's backfield gig to lose with Isaiah Crowell (foot, IR) now done for the year. Cannon would only have flex appeal if McGuire misses time.
Dec 15 - 9:18 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 2-of-5 targets for nine yards in the Jets' Week 15 loss to Houston.

It's the third straight game Kearse has finished with 10 yards or fewer. He's not an option for fantasy at this point of the season.
Dec 15 - 8:45 PM

Chris Herndon soaked up 3-of-4 targets for 53 yards in the Jets' Week 15 loss to the Texans.

It was the second time Herndon's eclipsed 50 yards in his last four games. This encouragingly comes only one week after he hauled in a single catch against the Bills. He'll continue to be a low-end streaming option against the Packers in Week 16 given his on-field usage.
Dec 15 - 8:44 PM

Robby Anderson vacuumed seven of his team-high 11 targets for 96 yards and one score in the Jets' Week 15 loss to the Texans.

As was the case last week, Sam Darnold again honed in on Anderson when pressured — which was often. The rookie scrambled for what seemed like an eternity on the Jets' final first-half possession, eventually looking up and sinking it into Anderson's basket from five-yards out for pay dirt. The burner again led the Jets in total air yards on Saturday (193), too. Having suddenly soaked up a team-high 29% target share since Darnold returned from injury two weeks ago, Anderson is firmly in play as a WR3/flex and DFS tournament option against the Packers in Week 16.
Dec 15 - 8:32 PM

Elijah McGuire handled 18 carries for 42 yards and one touchdown, adding three catches for 29 yards in the Jet's failed comeback attempt against the Texans in Week 15.

McGuire was strictly an RB2/flex in Week 15 due to projected volume, and he delivered by handling 21 of New York's 31 backfield touches (67.7%). Even though both backs split work in the Jets' passing game, McGuire notably out-carried Trenton Cannon 18-7 on the ground. With Isaiah Crowell (foot/toe, IR) done for the year, this is clearly McGuire's job to lose moving forward. He'll again be a volume-based RB2 against the Packers in Week 16.
Dec 15 - 8:01 PM

Sam Darnold completed 24-of-38 passes for 253 yards and two scores in the Jets' Week 15 loss to the Texans.

Despite having only tossed for 253 yards, Darnold was superb on Saturday, scrambling for his life on most plays only to find a receiver at the sticks once Houston's coverages broke down. His final fourth-down throw to Robby Anderson (7/96/1) would've kept the Jets' potential comeback-win alive had the receiver not dropped it. Although his fantasy potential is already ruined for this season, the franchise's future is clearly in good hands. Darnold will again be a low-end QB2 in deep/2-QB leagues against the Packers' secondary in Week 16.
Dec 15 - 7:49 PM

Rishard Matthews (hamstring) is doubtful to return for Week 15 against the Texans.

Matthews had one catch for seven yards while filling in for Quincy Enunwa (ankle, out). Andre Roberts will take his place.
Dec 15 - 6:18 PM

Trenton Cannon (toe) is active for Week 15 against the Texans.

Cannon was a game-time decision after a limited week of practice. With Isaiah Crowell on IR, he'll have a change-up role behind Elijah McGuire. The Jets inactives are WR Quincy Enunwa, WR Deontay Burnett, CB Derrick Jones, DB Jeremy Clark, OL Ben Braden, DL Folorunso Fatukasi, and LB Jeremiah Attaochu.
Dec 15 - 3:14 PM

Isaiah Crowell (foot) was placed on injured reserve, ending his 2018 season.

New York will move forward with second-year pro Elijah McGuire, sixth-round rookie Trenton Cannon, and practice squad call-up and ex-Broncos RB De'Angelo Henderson manning their backfield to close out the year. Crowell was a formidable scoring option for the Jets, having hit pay dirt six times this season, but ultimately recorded a majority of his rushing yardage (685) in his Week 5 219-yard explosive against the Broncos. It's possible the Jets simply move on from Crowell in the offseason after inking him for $12 million in 2018.
Dec 14 - 11:10 AM

Trenton Cannon (toe) is questionable for Week 15 against the Texans.

We'd count on him playing after getting in limited sessions on both Wednesday and Thursday. The rookie will handle a change-of-pace role behind starter Elijah McGuire, who is filling in for injured workhorse Isaiah Crowell (toe).
Dec 13 - 3:06 PM

Updating an earlier item, Elijah McGuire (ankle) has been left off the Jets' final Week 15 injury report.

The Jets initially listed as McGuire as questionable and Trenton Cannon (toe) off the report. They have since flip-flopped. It confirms that McGuire will be leading the Jets' Isaiah Crowell-less backfield against the Texans. He should get enough touches to put himself in the RB2/3 mix.
Dec 13 - 3:04 PM

Elijah McGuire (ankle) is questionable for Week 15 against the Texans.

Trenton Cannon (toe) was left off the final report after a full practice Friday, but McGuire was only able to get in a limited session to close out the week. Even so, it would be surprising if McGuire is not active and leading the backfield on Saturday. McGuire will be a FLEX option in a tough matchup.
Dec 13 - 12:52 PM

Quincy Enunwa (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Texans.

It is a bit of a surprise considering Enunwa was able to play through the injury last week, but there is no reason for the Jets to push him at this point. Jermaine Kearse should pick up a few more targets behind Robby Anderson.
Dec 13 - 12:40 PM

Isaiah Crowell (foot) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Texans.

It is not a surprise considering he did not practice all week. Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon will handle the backfield work in his place. Even in a tough matchup, McGuire is a volume-based FLEX option.
