New York Jets RB Michael Carter averaged three yards after contact per carry - tied for eighth among running backs with at least 100 carries in 2021 - according to Sports Info Solutions.
Huddle Up: Fantasy managers are well aware of the Jets used a second-round pick to secure Breece Hall, but they appear to be underrating him in some formats as a player who is sometimes available after the 10th round in 12-team leagues. Offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur has shown a propensity to use a committee backfield and Carter is too good to serve as nothing more than a breather back. While the rookie will undoubtedly be the main guy, Carter should be expected to hold a role worthy of a bench spot in most fantasy leagues.

New York Jets WR Garrett Wilson is "projected as an immediate contributor" in the offense, in the opinion of ESPN's Rich Cimini. "Wilson has a ways to go in terms of mastering the route tree, but there's no doubt about his physical traits. The one that jumps out is his body control, the ability to adjust to off-target throws. He projects as an immediate contributor in the wide receiver rotation."
Huddle Up: As a top-10 pick in the NFL draft, this shouldn't come as a surprise. But we do know rookie WRs take a little longer to contribute for fantasy during their first seasons. Wilson is a late-round flier right now until we know the true nature of his role, but the opportunities seem to be there.

New York Jets QB Zach Wilson struggled with accuracy in the practice session Wednesday, June 1. His first four passes were off the mark before he made three throws over the middle. He looked poised and confident in the pocket on the throws that didn't include pressure.
Huddle Up: It's one practice, but he did complete just 55.6 percent of his passes. Wilson remains a QB2 project in fantasy.

New York Jets WR Garrett Wilson had his work habits praised by offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur on Wednesday, June 1. "He is so locked in," LaFleur said.
Huddle Up: That's a great sign for the rookie, but how well he does in his first season is tough to predict with Elijah Moore, Corey Davis and quite possibly Braxton Berrios in front of him. Wilson is a first-round pick in dynasty rookie drafts but a bench stash at best until his role is known.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims received praise from head coach Robert Saleh on Wednesday, June 1. "He's in fantastic shape," Saleh noted. "He's a lot further along today than he was a year ago."
Huddle Up: The 2022 campaign will be a make-or-break one for the former second-round pick after a pair of disappointing seasons. Mims isn't a viable fantasy option until he shows he can produce.
Posted 5/13/2022 1:03 am GMT
New York Jets WR Elijah Moore ranked sixth in the NFL with 459 receiving yards and tied for eighth with 34 receptions from Week 8 to Week 13 last season.
Huddle Up: A leg injury derailed the end of Moore's rookie season, but he gave fantasy owners a glimpse of his potential. The addition of Garrett Wilson will provide some competition for targets, but Moore is still in the WR3 mix.

New York Jets QB Zach Wilson drew praise from head coach Robert Saleh on Saturday, May 7. Saleh says Wilson ''looks good'' and ''beefy'' after adding more to his frame, while also noting it hasn't impacted his throwing. In addition, Saleh praised Wilson for his ''really good command'' of the offense. ''There's little things that he's doing where you're seeing a little more security. And he's not a rookie, so he's being a little more vocal. So, he looks good. He's getting more comfortable.''
Huddle Up: While the jury is still out on Wilson, the Jets have done a good job putting more weapons around him this offseason, and their offensive line should be improved. However, until we see Wilson take that next step, he remains a QB3 and a bench stash at best.
Posted 5/07/2022 6:51 pm GMT
New York Jets TE Jeremy Ruckert (foot) has been dealing with an unspecified foot injury and will be reevaluated next week, head coach Robert Saleh revealed on Saturday, May 7. Saleh says the Jets are ''hoping'' the rookie will be able to get some work in this spring.
Huddle Up: Ruckert missing time this offseason could hinder his chances of earning any semblance of a role early on. Making matters worse, Ruckert is behind in the pecking order to C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Conklin. For now, Ruckert is not a viable fantasy option in season-long leagues and is a bench stash in dynasty formats.

Iowa State RB Breece Hall was selected by the New York Jets with the 36th overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Hall likely will be sharing playing time with Michael Carter for the foreseeable future. He could see a role in the passing game and can be a possible No. 3 running back in some deeper leagues.
Posted 4/29/2022 1:18 am GMT
Ohio State WR Garrett Wilson was selected by the New York Jets with the 10th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: The Jets do not have a true No. 1 receiver, so Wilson will push for a significant role in the passing game. He should see plenty of targets each game and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in most leagues.
Posted 4/25/2022 6:52 pm GMT
Ohio State WR Garrett Wilson is a name to watch for the Houston Texans at No. 13 overall in the 2022 NFL Draft, according to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated.
Huddle Up: While the Texans haven't been a popular landing spot for Wilson, the addition would likely help the development of QB Davis Mills. The shifty route runner is arguably the top WR in the draft, and even though Brandin Cooks is tied to the Texans through 2024, there would be ample opportunity for Wilson to make an immediate impact.

New York Jets QB Zach Wilson's resilience was praised by general manager Joe Douglas in an interview Friday, April 22. 'I 100 percent see greatness. I see a young quarterback that really went through the ringer to start the year, and what was most encouraging about Zach was when he came back, he maybe had one turnover over the last six games. He was taking care of the football, he was playing within the scheme,' Douglas said. 'You really saw him take a step within the season after going through a lot of adversity early, getting injured, coming back and not having our top two receivers in Corey [Davis] and Elijah [Moore] and playing with a lot of backups at the skill position but still executing the offense at a high level. And so, seeing that, seeing his resiliency and his perseverance through that and keeping it all together -- it gives you a lot of hope.'
Huddle Up: Wilson enters a pivotal second year with a team that's desperately trying to right the ship, but it still lacks a key playmaker at wide receiver and could use some help along the offensive line. For now, he's a risk-reward backup with matchup utility, but all of that could change with a splash move at wide receiver.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims is showing some added dedication ahead of his third season. Not only is he adding mass to his frame, he also showed up extra early to begin preparation for 2022, his personal trainer, Chad Marr, revealed. 'He came almost immediately,' Marr said. 'He was here so early he was training with my major league ball players. That's how early he was. Usually, I start seeing the guys after the Super Bowl. Denzel was here long before that.'
Huddle Up: Mims is in a make-or-break year with the Jets after two disappointing seasons to start his career. Unless he shows something leading up to the season, Mims isn't a viable fantasy option, even in deeper leagues.

Free-agent TE Tyler Conklin (Vikings) agreed to terms with the New York Jets Wednesday, March 16, according to sources. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The Jets added C.J. Uzomah this offseason, but Conklin should also be involved in the passing game in 2022. He probably should be considered a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/14/2022 11:05 pm GMT
Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent TE C.J. Uzomah plans to sign a three-year contract with the New York Jets worth $24 million, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Uzomah will be the Jets' starting tight end but is leaving one of the best offenses in the NFL in order to join the Jets. He could be a possible low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues but probably will be a No. 2 tight end in most leagues.
Posted 3/12/2022 1:25 am GMT
Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent TE C.J. Uzomah likely will be a priority for the Bengals this offseason, in the option of's Geoff Hobson.
Huddle Up: Uzomah was a reliable part of the passing game over the second half of the season and should find a starting option no matter where he signs this offseason. He can be a possible low-end No. 1 tight end depending on his situation.
Posted 3/10/2022 10:42 pm GMT
Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent TE Tyler Conklin said he is interested in re-signing with the Vikings, but the team has not made an offer at this point.
Huddle Up: Conklin should receive interest from teams and may be able to find a starting job. He posted decent numbers this past season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some leagues depending on his situation.
Posted 2/18/2022 11:50 pm GMT
New York Jets RB Michael Carter likely will enter training camp as the leading candidate for the starting running back job next season, in the opinion of's Rich Cimini.
Huddle Up: Carter led the team with 639 rushing yards and also posted 325 receiving yards during his rookie season. He should receive most of the work at running back next season and can be at least a No. 3 fantasy running back in fantasy leagues.
Posted 2/17/2022 12:24 am GMT
New York Jets impending free-agent WR Braxton Berrios said he would like to re-sign with the Jets but is not sure what will happen this offseason. Berrios and the Jets are expected to meet at the NFL Scouting Combine to have discussions.
Huddle Up: Berrios is coming off a strong second half of the season and should receive interest from multiple teams if he is available in free agency. He could be a late round option in point per reception leagues depending on his situation.
Posted 2/16/2022 10:04 pm GMT
Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his knee, but head coach Zac Taylor said his recovery has been encouraging.
Huddle Up: Uzomah likely will receive interest in the free-agent market if he does not re-sign with the Bengals, so fantasy players can monitor his situation this offseason. He should see a handful of targets each game no matter where he plays and can be a low-end No. 1 or high-end No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.
Posted 2/13/2022 11:06 pm GMT
Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) is officially active for Super Bowl LVI.
Huddle Up: Uzomah should be involved in the passing game despite the injury and likely will see a handful of targets. He can be considered a starting tight end in fantasy leagues this week.
Posted 2/13/2022 2:52 pm GMT
Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) will play in Super Bowl LVI versus the Los Angeles Rams Sunday, Feb. 13.
Huddle Up: Uzomah had been listed as questionable on the injury report due to a medial collateral sprain sustained in the AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs but he was able to fully participate in practice Friday, Feb. 11. He has been a reliable option in Cincinnati's passing game when healthy and can be started with confidence in postseason fantasy games.
Posted 2/12/2022 12:36 am GMT
Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Feb. 11, but is listed as questionable for Super Bowl LVI.
Huddle Up: The Bengals are optimistic about Uzomah's availability for the Super Bowl, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He has been a reliable option in the passing game when healthy this season and can be a starting fantasy option if he plays.
Posted 2/11/2022 7:20 pm GMT
Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) is expected to take part in the team's final practice Friday, Feb. 11, and is 'trending toward playing Sunday,' according to NFL Network's James Palmer.
Huddle Up: If Uzomah is active, it will be an impressive turnaround for a player who sprained his MCL just two weeks ago. With that said, it is hard to imagine he is anywhere close to 100 percent, so the odds are relatively strong that he will be a part-time player and share snaps with Drew Sample.
Posted 2/07/2022 6:36 pm GMT
Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) said he's 'not missing the biggest game of my life,' in reference to the Super Bowl.
Huddle Up: Uzomah will be a high-risk, high-reward option in fantasy as he's playing through a sprained MCL, which is usually a four-to-six-week injury.
Posted 2/06/2022 10:46 pm GMT
New York Jets impending free-agent WR Braxton Berrios appears to have a decent chance to hit the free-agent market this offseason but could still re-sign with the Jets at some point, in the opinion of the New York Post's Brian Costello.
Huddle Up: Berrios played well during the second half of the season and should be an option for teams looking for a possible slot receiver. His return ability will also help his value, so fantasy players can monitor his situation. He could be an option in point-per-reception leagues depending on his team.
Posted 2/05/2022 1:11 am GMT
New York Jets WR Elijah Moore said he plans to work on improving his chemistry with QB Zach Wilson this offseason.
Huddle Up: Moore played well at times but missed time at the end of season because of an injury. There is a good chance that Moore will be a starter or No. 3 receiver for the Jets and should see a good amount of targets. He could be a No. 4 fantasy receiver in some leagues.
Posted 1/31/2022 7:08 pm GMT
Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) was diagnosed with a medial collateral sprain after undergoing an MRI on Monday, Jan. 31. Head coach Zac Taylor called the MRI 'encouraging' and believes Uzomah 'has a chance' to play in Super Bowl LVI.
Huddle Up: Uzomah had been coming on as an important part of the offense during the playoffs before going down early in the AFC Championship against the Kansas City Chiefs. Unless the sprain was minor, it seems unlikely Uzomah will be anywhere close to full speed in two weeks - if he plays at all. Drew Sample logged most of the snaps in his absence Sunday and figures to play a lot in the Super Bowl if Uzomah is limited in any way.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow threw for 348 yards, no touchdowns and an interception on 28-of-37 passing at the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round on Saturday, Jan. 22. He ran twice for five yards and was sack nine times. RB Joe Mixon ran 14 times for 54 yards and a touchdown, adding six catches for 51 yards on seven targets. WR Ja'Marr Chase landed five of six looks for 109 yards, while WR Tee Higgins caught seven of nine passes for 96 yards. WR Tyler Boyd finished with 17 yards on two of three targets, and TE C.J. Uzomah racked up 71 yards on seven catches (eight targets). LB Logan Wilson paced the team with eight stops, including six solos, a tackle for loss, one pass defensed, and a QB hit. DL D.J. Reader made five solo tackles, one assist, two tackles for loss, and a quarterback hit.
Posted 1/21/2022 4:30 am GMT
New York Jets WR Elijah Moore averaged 76.5 receiving yards and scored five touchdowns from Week 8 to Week 13 of the 2021 season.
Huddle Up: The rookie was coming into his own before a quadriceps injury sidelined him down the stretch. The quarterback situation is a question mark, but even if Zach Wilson doesn't improve, Moore showed he can be a WR3.
