New York Jets first-round pick QB Zach Wilson is absent from training camp Tuesday, July 27.
Huddle Up: Wilson figures to be given every opportunity to start, but he isn't much of an option in single-year leagues.

New York Jets second-round pick WR Elijah Moore signed a four-year, $8.94 million deal with a $3.86 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Moore doesn't have a lot of competition and could be worthy of a late-round flyer to watch in training camp.

New York Jets WR Keelan Cole received snaps with the first-team offense during offseason workouts and could compete for a starting job during training camp.
Huddle Up: Cole likely will have a role in the passing game but could be a top-three receiver if he performs well during camp. Fantasy players can monitor the situation because Cole could be a late round pick in fantasy leagues.

New York Jets WR Corey Davis averaged 2.58 receiving yards per route run in 2020, improving on his 2019 mark by more than a yard.
Huddle Up: Davis enjoyed a breakout 2020 campaign, but he now finds himself as the No. 1 receiver for an offense with fewer weapons and a rookie quarterback. He should be viewed as a WR4.

New York Jets RB Josh Adams is expected to be a candidate for the starting running back job during training camp and likely will have a solid role in the offense even if he does not win the starting job.
Huddle Up: The Jets will have multiple candidates for the starting job, so Adams can earn the job with a productive training camp and preseason. Adams would have to share playing time with the other running backs on the roster even if he starts, which would hurt his fantasy value. He could be a No. 3 fantasy back if he receives a majority of the carries.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims has the speed and skills to excel as a deep threat, but the Jets' new offense calls for more precise routes in the short and intermediate game and work inside the numbers. 'He plays big on the outside. He's got the length and the radius,' new offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur said of Mims. 'We're gonna get him playing better inside the numbers.'
Huddle Up: Mims, a second-round pick in 2020, was limited to 23 catches for 357 yards and no TDs in nine games due to injury last season, but has been running with the second and third team with N.Y. adding wideouts Corey Davis, Elijah Moore and Keelan Cole this offseason. He should go undrafted in the majority of standard-size re-draft leagues unless we get an inkling that he's going to be more involved in the Jets' offense.

New York Jets RB Michael Carter could push for the starting running back job if he performs well during training camp and the preseason, in the opinion of JetsWire's Tyler Calvaruso.
Huddle Up: The Jets do not have a clear No. 1 running back, so Carter could have a chance to start as a rookie. Fantasy players can monitor the situation during the preseason because Carter can be a No. 3 or No. 4 back if he starts.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims 'isn't even among the best five receivers' on this year's roster, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Mims was stuck working with the second-team during minicamp, and there doesn't appear to be a lot of optimism surrounding the second-year receiver. At this point, he doesn't need to be selected in redraft leagues.

New York Jets RB Ty Johnson 'made a strong impression' during minicamp, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Johnson showed some flashes at the end of last season, and he logged at least eight touches in four of the final five games. The Jets will likely utilize a committee in the backfield in 2021, but Johnson could be a flex option if he ends up headlining the group.

New York Jets QB Zach Wilson has done a 'really good job' of directing the team's offense in offseason drills -- with periods of calling his own plays -- even though he's had the team's playbook for less than two months, according to offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur. 'It's been a learning curve for him,' LaFleur said. 'We've thrown a lot at him.'
Huddle Up: With only James Morgan and Mike White behind him on the depth chart, it's Wilson or bust in N.Y. He's a QB3 consideration for two-quarterback leagues.

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, June 16, by hamstring 'tightness,' but head coach Robert Saleh added that he expects Herndon to be 'perfectly fine' going forward.
Huddle Up: Herndon is coming off a disappointing 2020 season (31 catches for 287 yards and three TDs) after missing all but one game in 2019 due to a substance-abuse suspension and a hamstring injury. That makes 2021 a big season for Herndon, and he's a low-end TE2 flyer in deeper and two-tight end leagues for now.

New York Jets WR Corey Davis (shoulder) participated in practice Tuesday, June 15.
Huddle Up: Davis has been dealing with a shoulder injury this offseason but appears to be ready for minicamp and training camp. He should serve as the top receiver for the Jets and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims was one of the team's few receivers not to get any snaps with the first team on the first day of minicamp Tuesday, June 15, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.
Huddle Up: Mims has reportedly worked behind free-agent addition Keelan Cole for much of the offseason, so it appears the second-year receiver is not a favorite of the new coaching staff. It's a bit shocking from the standpoint that he flashed in the second half of last season once he got healthy despite how inept the Jets were offensively. At this point, it would not be surprising if New York looks to trade him this summer.

New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder renegotiated an undisclosed contract that will allow him to become a free agent after the 2021 season.
Huddle Up: Crowder had a 59-699-6 season that was riddled with injuries. He's a solid WR3 in PPR, but you'll need an upside receiver to replace him when injuries pop up.

New York Jets QB Zach Wilson took all the first-team reps during OTAs, and the Jets are in 'Get-Wilson-ready-to-start' mode, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Wilson was the frontrunner to start after being selected No. 2 overall, and he remains on track to be under center in Week 1. He is a fringe QB2 in redraft leagues as the Jets try to rebuild their offense, but Wilson is an intriguing asset in keeper formats.

New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder is expected to attend the mandatory minicamp this week even though he skipped some offseason workouts because of a contract situation.
Huddle Up: Crowder's status with the team is uncertain at this point because the team wants him to accept a pay cut. He is a reliable slot receiver, so fantasy players can keep an eye to see which team he will play for in 2021. He can be a No. 4 fantasy receiver in most leagues.

New York Jets WR Elijah Moore has been 'near unstoppable' in the red zone during OTAs, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: The hype has already begun building around Moore, and the Jets aren't exactly loaded at the receiver position. He could carve out a steady role sooner rather than later, and he is an interesting late-round flier in redraft leagues.

New York Jets second-round WR Elijah Moore has been getting 'consistently open by creating constant separation with his lightning quickness' throughout organized team activities.
Huddle Up: Beat writer Connor Hughes of The Athletic took it a step further with his praise of Moore, suggesting the rookie has "been the most impressive player at OTAs and it's not really close." It seems only a matter of time before the Jets move on from Jamison Crowder and feature Moore in the slot. While it would be a bit premature to anoint him a potential fantasy starter already in 2021, there's little question he will have a real shot at 60-plus catches if Crowder is out of the picture.

New York Jets RB Ty Johnson may be the leading candidate for the starting running back job at this point because how he finished the 2020 season but will have to compete with multiple other running backs for the job, in the opinion of JetsWire's Tyler Calvaruso.
Huddle Up: The Jets do not have a clear No. 1 running back on the roster, so fantasy players will need to monitor the competition during training camp and the preseason. The team probably will use a committee at the position during the season, but the winner of the job could be a No. 3 back in fantasy leagues.

New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder was asked to take a 'significant' pay cut from his $10 million salary, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Crowder's projected to be the Jets' starting slot receiver if retained. He'll battle sophomore Denzel Mims and free-agent addition Corey Davis for targets. If Crowder is cut, rookie Elijah Moore would become the hot fantasy target in the slot receiver role for rookie QB Zach Wilson.

New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder will have a role in the offense this upcoming season even though he is currently not with the team because of a contract issue, according to head coach Robert Saleh.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Crowder will be with the Jets this season. He has been a reliable slot receiver over the last few seasons but did see a small dip in his receiving yards in 2020. He can still be a late round option in point-per-reception leagues.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims (illness) is dealing with an illness not related to COVID-19 but was expected to practice Friday, June 4, according to head coach Robert Saleh.
Huddle Up: Mims was limited to nine games during his rookie season and finished with 23 receptions and 357 yards. He likely will be a top-three receiver for the Jets in 2021 but probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

New York Jets WR Corey Davis (shoulder) was on the field during practice Wednesday, June 2, but did not participate in any drills.
Huddle Up: The team is taking things slow with Davis, so he may not return to practice until training camp. He likely will be the main receiver for the Jets this upcoming season and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder has not attended the offseason workouts at this point but has been in communications with the team.
Huddle Up: Crowder has been a reliable receiver over the last several seasons and probably will still be a top-three receiver for the Jets in 2021. He could be a late round pick in deeper leagues but will not be a weekly starting option.

New York Jets WR Corey Davis (shoulder) suffered a mild shoulder strain in organized team activities Thursday, May 27. Dr. James Andrews is taking a look at the scans today, but team docs believe Davis will be OK with some rest.
Huddle Up: Davis went up for a ball and landed awkwardly. So this is just some freak thing that shouldn't be a big deal. He's still a WR4 in fantasy.

New York Jets RB Michael Carter busted 29 runs of at least 20 yards over his final two seasons at North Carolina - the most in college football over that time - according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Carter led Division I with 18 such runs in 2020 despite carrying the ball only 156 times, which works out to a big run once every 11.5 rushing attempts. He finds himself in a very favorable situation in New York, as Tevin Coleman and La'Mical Perine are the only players that appear to be real threats to his potential workload. His biggest question figures to be whether or not he can hold up to a 200-touch workload in the NFL at 200 pounds. If he can, he should be able to serve as a solid committee back for the Jets and a strong RB3 for fantasy owners.

New York Jets QB Zach Wilson said he does not expect the Jets to hand him the starting quarterback job, and he plans to earn the job during offseason workouts and training camp.
Huddle Up: Wilson is the clear favorite for the starting job and should be under center Week 1 as long as he is healthy. It probably will take some time for him to be comfortable playing in the NFL, so he should only be considered a No. 2 quarterback in standard fantasy leagues.

New York Jets WR Elijah Moore has the ability to line up at several different spots in the offense, according to general manager Joe Douglas.
Huddle Up: Moore could see a majority of his snaps in the slot but may also see time at outside receiver and possibly in the backfield. He will be working with a rookie quarterback but could be a late round option in deeper leagues.
