New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell hasn't played in the team's first two preseason games, and head coach Adam Gase is noncommital about Bell playing in the third. 'We'll kind of see how next week goes,' Gase said Friday, Aug. 16. 'He's played a lot of football. And I like where he's at right now. I love how he's working. If I feel like there's a need to play him next week, we will. If he has a good week of practice and it's not worth it for us to get him out there, then we won't.' If Bell doesn't play in Week 3 of the preseason, then there's little chance of him playing in Week 4 when starters typically rest.
Huddle Up: Fantasy GMs and Jets fans are anxious to get a glimpse of Bell in a N.Y. uniform, but it likely will have to wait until the regular-season opener against the Buffalo Bills. In the meantime, he remains steady as a solid RB1 fantasy pick.

New York Jets RB Ty Montgomery rushed seven times for 36 yards and a touchdown in a 22-10 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Aug. 15.
Huddle Up: Montgomery's ability to play both running back and receiver should help him see some touches, but unless something happens to Le'Veon Bell, it is unlikely any other back for the Jets will have fantasy relevance.

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15.
Huddle Up: Bell has not played since 2017 but his status for the other two preseason games is uncertain. He should be a focal point in the Jets offense this season and likely will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

The New York Jets signed free-agent PK Taylor Bertolet (Broncos) Sunday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: The 26-year-old Bertolet becomes the favorite to win the Jets' placekicking job following the retirement of Chandler Catanzaro, who was in the midst of an underwhelming training camp which included two missed extra-point attempts in the preseason opener. Bertolet spent last preseason with the Jets but has never kicked in a regular-season game and should not be viewed as a great fantasy option.

New York Jets RB Ty Montgomery told the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta that he feels like 'a true hybrid in this offense (under head coach Adam Gase).' 'It was a surprising deal when he came in here. I was surprised he wasn't signed yet. The fact that we had a shot at him coming here and when we got him signed, the wheels started turning on offense as far as all right, what are we going to do? How are we going to use these guys? What's it going to look like? So, we're experimenting with all that stuff. His versatility and his flexibility and his knowledge ... and he's extremely smart. So, we put a lot on his plate and he's able to play a lot of different roles for us,' Gase said.
Huddle Up: It seems unlikely he'll see enough touches behind Le'Veon Bell to be relevant in fantasy, although that could change if Bell is forced to miss time due to injury. However, there is no question Montgomery's experience as a running back and receiver could help him serve as a mismatch weapon for defenses.

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8, but will participate in the pregame warmups, according to a source. It is not known if Bell will play at all during the preseason.
Huddle Up: Bell has not played in a game since 2017 but still likely will not receive many snaps during training camp. He needs to learn a new offense during training camp but should continue to post solid numbers in the running and passing game. Bell likely will be a No. 1 running back on all leagues.

Updating previous reports, New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (groin) is expected to be back next week, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Enunwa has talent, but injuries plague him. He's a WR5 option in most leagues.
Posted 8/06/2019 4:08 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (groin) left practice early Tuesday, Aug. 6, with a groin injury. Head coach Adam Gase said Enunwa will have tests, but he didn't sound overly concerned about the situation, noting that Enunwa was seeking to return to practice.
Huddle Up: Something to watch as Enunwa has had injury issues in recent seasons, missing a combined nine games over his last three campaigns. He's a dart-throw, end-of-the bench wideout in 10- and 12-team leagues.
Posted 8/01/2019 4:08 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell was praised Thursday, Aug. 1, by head coach Adam Gase. 'LeVeon Bell picks things up so fast...he has done some of the stuff we do in the passing game,' Gase said. 'He looks like a running go thats what a RB is supposed to look like that. He is one of the best, if not the best running back in the league.'
Huddle Up: There are concerns about Bell coming off a missed season and not being able to duplicate his massive touch workloads from his Steeler days, but he's still a solid back-end RB1 selection in fantasy.
Posted 8/01/2019 12:08 am UTC
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder (foot) participated in practice Wednesday, July 31.
Huddle Up: Crowder likely will be the team's slot receiver and should have a solid role in the passing game. He has a chance to be a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues this season and could be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.
Posted 7/29/2019 10:07 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder (foot) is scheduled to undergo tests on the foot injury he suffered Monday, July 29. Head coach Adam Gase said he does not know the severity of the injury.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players need to monitor the situation to see how long Crowder will be sidelined. He is expected to have a solid role in the passing game as the slot receiver in 2019. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Posted 7/28/2019 5:07 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell was forced to leave back-to-back practices recently to submit to league drug tests. 'Since he wasn't here in the spring, they have to do everything now,' Jets coach Adam Gase explained Saturday, July 27. 'You guys don't see it all the time. You know, in the season sometimes we can be out at practice where a guy gets pulled off. It happens a lot in OTAs, you know, guys will come out late because they've got to do that.'
Huddle Up: Bell was suspended four games in 2016 for skipping a drug test, but it sounds like the league is getting all caught up. Barring a positive test result, Bell remains a RB1 in all league formats.
Posted 7/25/2019 5:07 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell says he's ready to resume a hefty workload after sitting out the 2018 season. 'I'm up for 500 if it's going to take us to the Super Bowl,' Bell said Thursday, July 25.
Huddle Up: Bell set a career high with 406 touches in 2017, but 300 would be a reasonable number as head coach Adam Gase and the Jets have said they don't want to wear Bell out. Regardless, Bell remains a solid RB1 in all formats.
Posted 7/24/2019 7:07 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell will be on a snap count during training camp since he did not play last season, according to head coach Adam Gase. Gase would not say if Bell will play in any preseason games.
Huddle Up: Bell should be a focal point on offense this season as long as he can stay healthy. He should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues in 2019.
Posted 7/16/2019 12:07 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa will be used more on the outside this year, whereas he was used on screen routes more last season. Head coach Adam Gase said that Enunwa needs to go down more instead of fighting for the extra inch in order to stay healthy.
Huddle Up: Enunwa showed promise early last season, but high ankle sprains derailed him. He's a WR5 target with some upside in the up-and-coming offense.
Posted 7/12/2019 6:07 pm UTC
New York Jets TE Chris Herndon received a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy as a result of pleading guilty to DUI in June of 2018, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: The Jets don't have any proven playmakers at tight end behind him, so it's a tough pill to swallow. While New York probably won't get much from the position while he is away, the Jets will likely just lean more heavily on Le'Veon Bell, Quincy Enuwa and Jamison Crowder in September. Herndon was already a TE2 in fantasy drafts, so this news may actually make him even more of a bargain. He will have low-end TE1 upside when he returns.
Posted 7/09/2019 11:07 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson will be more involved in the offense in 2019, according to head coach Adam Gase. 'We're just going to keep trying to think of ways to get him the ball, ways to create variety in his routes,' Gase said. 'Instead of just doing one or two things, maybe we can open that thing up to five, six, seven things to where he's a threat on multiple levels whether it be underneath, intermediate or down the field.' Anderson said his goal is to become 'the best receiver in the NFL.'
Huddle Up: Anderson struggled early in QB Sam Darnold's rookie season, finishing the year with just 50 of 94 targets for 752 yards and six touchdowns. His play improved by the end of the year, catching 20 passes for 312 yards and three scores from Weeks 14-16. A big-play threat, Anderson has WR2 upside at a mid-tier WR3 price.
Posted 7/09/2019 6:07 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder had an 'impressive spring' and 'looked fully healthy' during the offseason, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.
Huddle Up: Crowder will be hard-pressed to be anything more than the Jets' third target behind Robby Anderson and Le'Veon Bell, but he should have some appeal in PPR leagues. Slot receivers have typically done well in Adam Gase's offenses, and Sam Darnold tended to lean on his inside wideouts as a rookie. He's a WR4 with upside.
Posted 7/06/2019 1:07 am UTC
New York Jets TE Chris Herndon said he has been focusing on film study and learning the playbook this offseason. 'Before you can get out there and make plays, you have to know where to be and that's probably the most important part,' Herndon said.
Huddle Up: Herndon flashed his upside as a receiver as the year went on, and despite having a possible suspension looming, he offers intriguing upside heading into 2019. He could be a sneaky TE1 candidate.
Posted 7/05/2019 5:07 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder has run more than 75 percent of his routes in his career from the slot, according to Pro Football Focus. Head coach Adam Gase has said they'll lean on receivers inside the numbers in his scheme. 'He has an explosiveness after the catch that you don't see a ton of,' Gase said. 'A lot of the slot receivers, historically have been not guys that are threats down the field. He's a threat down the field, but at the same time he can catch it and create, which is going to be interesting for us because we've never had a guy who can really juice it up.'
Huddle Up: Crowder might be worth a late-round flyer if he shows something in camp and the preseason.
Posted 7/01/2019 3:07 pm UTC
New York Jets TE Chris Herndon is pegged to open the season as the starter at tight end. Head coach Adam Gase referred to Herndon as a 'unicorn' with his rare combination of talents.
Huddle Up: There is fear that Herndon could be facing a suspension for a guilty plea to driving while intoxicated, and that potential two-game absence could nullify the upside Herndon has as a TE2.
Posted 6/17/2019 3:06 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson was deemed a 'very pleasant surprise' by new general manager Joe Douglas. 'He's a tough weapon for defenses to match up with, he can get behind you and he can challenge the defense vertically,' Douglas said. 'That was a very pleasant surprise.'
Huddle Up: It would be a very pleasant surprise if Anderson fulfilled his fantasy potential finally. He had a so-so 50-752-6 line last year, but he's a WR4 with hope of more.
Posted 6/14/2019 2:06 pm UTC
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.
Posted 6/14/2019 1:06 am UTC
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.
Posted 6/13/2019 5:06 pm UTC
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.
Posted 6/11/2019 4:06 pm UTC
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.
Posted 6/09/2019 8:06 pm UTC
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.
Posted 6/06/2019 7:06 am UTC
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.
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.
