New York Jets TE Daniel Brown, normally a blocking tight end, has impressed with his ability as a receiver. Brown has displayed more downfield speed than expected.
Huddle Up: Chris Herndon could be facing discipline after pleading guilty to a DUI in January, and Brown has an opening early in the season. Target him as a mid-to-low TE2 with upside.

New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (undisclosed) did not practice Thursday, June 13, because of an undisclosed injury.
Huddle Up: The nature of Anderson's injury remains unclear, but unless it lingers into training camp, fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned. Anderson started to connect with Sam Darnold on some big plays late last season, and he's a WR3 candidate in 2019 as the top option in the passing attack.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold has impressed Jets wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson in his second season. 'It's everything,' Jefferson said of Darnold. 'The way that he works -- he's here early in the morning, he stays after, he probably doesn't leave this building until six, seven at night. He's in the old quarterback room. I've been so impressed with this kids work ethic and the way he attacks everything. It's just been awesome to see a young kid like that. It's almost like he's been here before. He's a young guy, but he has a lot of veteran attributes to him.'
Huddle Up: Darnold now has a year under his belt, and his supporting cast has improved, but he's still a low-end QB2 at best right now for fantasy purposes.

New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (undetermined) is present at the team's minicamp practice Tuesday, June 11 but is not participating in team drills.
Huddle Up: There are high hopes for Anderson in the Jets' new offense, and he's a strong WR3 to covet in drafts this summer.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold spoke glowingly of his team's re-signing of RB Bilal Powell this past week. 'Great to have BP back,' Darnold said. 'Can't wait to get to work with him. I haven't seen him in a while, so it's going to be nice to be able to see him. I know BP is a great guy and obviously a great player, so it's great to have him back.'
Huddle Up: Powell played seven games in 2018 before suffering what was initially believed to be a career-threatening neck injury. The 30-year-old rushed for 343 yards and zero touchdowns, but he caught 11 of 18 targets for 110 yards and one score. He'll enter camp battling for a depth position behind No. 1 back Le'Veon Bell.

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell said he does not plan to participate in practices next week and will return to Florida to train.
Huddle Up: Bell participated in the mandatory minicamp but will not practice with the team again until training camp. He has not played since 2017 but should still be one of the better running backs in the NFL. He should be a No. 1 running back in all leagues.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold said Tuesday, June 4, it'll take time to form chemistry with new RB Bell. 'I don't think there's necessarily a certain time period that you can put on it,' Darnold said. 'It's just kind of when we click, we click. ... I think, me and (Bell), we get along well. So, that's kind of the first step in building that relationship. It's good to kind of go on the same page with him and just see how he kind of runs routes and how he runs out there. I haven't seen him really run and it was good to kind of see him run some routes and throw the ball to him a little bit.' Darnold added that he wants to get some offensive players together for workouts ahead of training camp later this summer.
Huddle Up: Bell should be able to reassert himself as an RB1 after sitting out the entirety of the 2018 season. His presence, should he be able to form chemistry with the sophomore QB, could put Darnold on the fantasy radar. The signal-caller will turn 22 years old ahead of the 2019 season and enters as a low-ceiling QB2.
Posted 6/04/2019 7:06 am UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell reported to the team's facility Monday, June 3, ahead of the team's voluntary minicamp start on Tuesday, June 4.
Huddle Up: Bell is at the facility getting ready to work with second-year QB Sam Darnold and learn the team's new offense, while also getting back onto the football field after a one-year hiatus due to his contract dispute in Pittsburgh. It will be good for him to knock off the rust this summer. He'll be a high-round fantasy draft pick again in 2019.

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon looked 'really good' during organized team activities this week and 'can be a huge red-zone weapon for Darnold and new coach Adam Gase,' according to Brian Costello of the New York Post. Gase called Herndon a 'unicorn type player' in March and seems excited about what he can do with him inside his offense, per Costello.
Huddle Up: Herndon is coming off the board somewhere around the 14th round in recent drafts, making him a screaming value for owners who like to wait to take tight ends. Owners should get good bang for their buck even if they take him four rounds earlier. Even with additions of Le'Veon Bell and Jamison Crowder, the University of Miami product could easily push for low-end TE1 numbers.

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to be at the team's mandatory minicamp in June. 'I don't expect him not to be there,' head coach Adam Gase said Friday, May 10.
Huddle Up: Bell's absence from voluntary workouts of his new team has rekindled some unpleasant memories for a number of fantasy GMs, but he remains a solid RB1 fantasy pick, who may be a little undervalued.
Posted 5/08/2019 1:05 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Bilal Powell (neck) was fully cleared from a neck injury that was once thought to threaten his career.
Huddle Up: Powell could return to RB4 relevance in the right situation. Keep tabs on him through the offseason.
Posted 4/23/2019 5:04 pm UTC
New York Jets QB Sam Darnold called new head coach Adam Gase 'awesome' and added he is looking forward to his second NFL season. 'It's going to be fun to attack this year,' Darnold said Tuesday, April 23, at the team's voluntary minicamp. '... Good things to come.'
Huddle Up: Darnold showed some definite flashes as a rookie, throwing for 2,865 yards, 17 TDs and 15 interceptions in 13 games while finishing 27th among fantasy QBs. A jump to QB2 range in Year 2 is certainly on the table.
Posted 4/23/2019 4:04 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell was a no-show Tuesday, April 23, on the first day of the team's voluntary minicamp, but head coach Adam Gase didn't appear overly concerned. 'It's voluntary,' Gase said, noting that Bell was with the team earlier this month for the first week of the offseason program and adding that Bell has a strong self-training regimen.
Huddle Up: This absence is just a little different than the one that burned fantasy owners last year in Pittsburgh, and Bell remains a no-doubt RB1 until further notice.
Posted 4/11/2019 9:04 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Ty Montgomery (Ravens) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the New York Jets Thursday, April 11, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Montgomery likely will serve as the No. 2 or No. 3 running back for the Jets and may only receive a handful of touches each game. He likely will be avoided in most fantasy drafts.
Posted 4/05/2019 10:04 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson said he expects to post at least 1,000 yards next season.
Huddle Up: Anderson has been targeted at least 94 times in each of the last two seasons and should continue to be the main option in the passing game. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues and has a chance to improve on his 2018 stats.
Posted 4/01/2019 6:04 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder 'has something unique as far as he has an explosiveness after the catch that you don't see (among slot receivers),' according to head coach Adam Gase. In 56 games over four seasons with the Washington Redskins, Crowder had 34 receptions of at least 20 yards and six of at least 40. 'A lot of slot players, historically, have not been guys that are threats down the field. He's actually a threat down the field, but at the same time, he can catch it and create, which is going to be interesting for us. We've never had a guy that really can juice it up like he can,' Gase said.
Huddle Up: It's interesting Gase decided to use the term "juice" (Jarvis Landry's nickname) when talking about slot receivers he has coached. Beyond that, Crowder is very much a player that seems to have flown under the radar during free agency this spring. Wes Welker, Landry and Danny Amendola have all enjoyed varying levels of success in Gase's offense, and it's not a stretch to say Crowder is the most explosive of the bunch. He should be viewed as a WR3 with WR2 upside in 2019.
Posted 3/26/2019 11:03 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell won't be burnt out with his new team if head coach Adam Gase has his way. Gase said the Jets will keep an eye on Bell's practice snaps and snap count in games. 'This is not going to be [a situation] where we burn him out in the first six months,' Gase said.
Huddle Up: Bell's tires have plenty of tread after being one of the most dutiful running backs in the NFL for five years before taking last year off. His legs should be fresh coming off the hiatus, and while his fantasy ceiling may not be as high as it was with the Pittsburgh Steelers, he's still a top RB1 with added value in PPR leagues.
Posted 3/25/2019 2:03 am UTC
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder said he is excited to play in head coach Adam Gase's offense because of how it utilizes slot receivers.
Huddle Up: Crowder's 2018 season was marred by an ankle injury, but if he stays healthy, he could become a dependable target for Sam Darnold. Crowder is worth a look as a WR4 in PPR formats.
Posted 3/15/2019 2:03 am UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell said he wants to be a 'security blanket' for QB Sam Darnold.
Huddle Up: Bell probably isn't going to finish as the top fantasy back after ending up with the Jets, but his ability to also help in the passing game should help him stay firmly in the RB1 mix.
Posted 3/13/2019 3:03 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell was a strong target of the San Francisco 49ers before the Jets eventually signed him, according to sources.
Huddle Up: It would have been an even more interesting backfield in San Francisco had this worked out, but the situation is now moot. Bell is the featured back for the Jets and deserves to be drafted later in the first round or early in the second round.
Posted 3/13/2019 4:03 am UTC
Impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell (Steelers) reportedly plans to sign with the New York Jets, according to a league source. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the contract will be worth $52.5 million over four years.
Huddle Up: The Jets have been considered the frontrunners for a while and were potentially the only team willing to come close to paying him what he wanted. While New York isn't a dream destination for his fantasy outlook, Bell has no real competition for massive volume with the Jets. He doesn't figure to be the elite fantasy back he was with the Steelers, but he should have no issue being a mid-tier RB1.
Posted 3/12/2019 4:03 am UTC
Impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell (Steelers) is expected to decide on his new team Tuesday, March 12.
Huddle Up: The New York Jets are considered the frontrunners for his services, but they have made it clear they don't want to bid against themselves and/or break the bank to land Bell. The reality is he probably has a handful of teams willing to spend between somewhere in the neighborhood of $10 million per year for him but no one willing to set the market. Wherever he lands, he should see enough volume to be a solid fantasy RB1, but not at the elite level he displayed in Pittsburgh.
Posted 3/11/2019 8:03 pm UTC
Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Jamison Crowder is close to reaching an agreement with the New York Jets, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Provided this holds up, Crowder could be a sneaky buy in the second half of fantasy drafts, particularly around the fourth quadrant. He's capable but has struggled with injuries and is a PPR-only consideration in deep leagues -- think WR4 territory with upside.
