New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell said he wants to stay around 210 to 215 pounds this season and that he improved his conditioning this offseason. He said he feels the best he has in his career and expects a lot from himself in 2020.
Huddle Up: Bell had a decent 2019 season but does not able to post the same numbers he did in previous seasons. He should be a focal point on offense this season and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is in great shape and is extremely motivated to play this season, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Bell posted decent numbers in his first season with the Jets but was not the same running back he was a few years ago. He posted 789 rushing yards, 461 receiving yards and four total touchdowns. Bell will continue to be the starting running back for the Jets and can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

New York Jets LB C.J. Mosley (groin) on Saturday, Aug. 1, announced he will opt out of the 2020 season due to family health concerns, according to sources.
Huddle Up: After signing a big-money free agent deal, Mosley's star-crossed tenure in New York continues after playing only two games in 2019 due to injury. The focus now shifts to 2021.

New York Jets TE Ryan Griffin (ankle) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, July 30.
Huddle Up: Griffin caught 34 of 41 targets for 320 yards and five touchdowns over 13 games last season. TE Chris Herndon was already projected for the starting role in 2020, and his value will be elevated for any amount of time Griffin is forced to miss.

New York Jets S Jamal Adams was acquired by the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, July 25, in exchange for S Bradley McDougald, a 2021 first-round draft choice, a 2021 third-round draft choice and a 2022 first-round draft choice. The Seahawks will also receive a 2022 fourth-round pick in the trade.
Huddle Up: Adams is one of the top safeties in the NFL but will be playing in a tougher division in 2020. He is a must-start option in all IDP leagues this season.
Posted 7/25/2020 1:16 am UTC
New York Jets TE Chris Herndon has a chance to become QB Sam Darnold's 'Travis Kelce or Zach Ertz' in 2020, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: While Herndon certainly flashed TE1 potential in 2018, he is coming off an injury and a suspension last year, and head coach Adam Gase doesn't have a history of relying heavily on tight ends. Herndon is worth a look as a high-upside TE2, but don't expect him to join the ranks of the elite fantasy tight ends this season.
Posted 7/10/2020 6:40 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Breshad Perriman ranked second among wide receivers in 2019 with a 90.2 Pro Football Focus grade versus man coverage.
Huddle Up: Perriman, who closed 2019 with a fantasy bang on the Bucs, is headed to his fourth team in five seasons, and the current pandemic is making it tough for players on new teams to develop chemistry. Regardless, Perriman definitely a high-upside flyer to target late in drafts.
Posted 7/09/2020 6:16 pm UTC
New York Jets fourth-round draft choice RB La'Mical Perine signed a four-year contract with the Jets Thursday, July 9. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Perine probably will not see a lot of snaps since he is behind Le'Veon Bell and Frank Gore on the depth chart but could have a role in the passing game. Fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation during training camp, but Perine will not be a starting option most weeks.
Posted 7/05/2020 1:27 am UTC
New York Jets TE Chris Herndon could underwhelm in 2020 because of the way head coach Adam Gase utilizes the tight end position, according to Rich Cimini of When Gase was with the Miami Dolphins from 2016 to 2018, his tight ends finished with a league-low 150 catches in that span.
Huddle Up: Herndon flashed TE1 potential as a rookie in 2018, but injuries ruined his sophomore campaign. Gase's history with tight ends isn't encouraging, but Herndon is one of the most dynamic weapons the Jets have in the passing game. He's still worth a flier as a TE2.
Posted 6/24/2020 9:59 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Breshad Perriman said he believes the Jets can have a dangerous offense this upcoming season. He said he worked out with QB Sam Darnold earlier in the offseason and is looking forward to the season.
Huddle Up: Perriman had a terrific end to the 2019 season and will be a starting receiver for the Jets this upcoming season. Perriman should be rostered in all fantasy leagues but may not be a weekly starting option.
Posted 6/14/2020 6:06 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder caught 58 passes while lined up as the slot receiver during the 2019 season, which ranked fourth among wide receivers.
Huddle Up: The Jets have made several changes to their receiving corps, so Crowder may receive a bigger role in the passing game in 2020. He is a reliable receiver and can be a No. 3 receiver for fantasy players.
Posted 6/13/2020 10:01 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is participating in workouts with his teammates this weekend.
Huddle Up: Bell will be the starting running back for the Jets this season but will have to share some of his snaps with Frank Gore. He should still be considered a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues but likely will not produce the numbers he did earlier in his career.
Posted 6/13/2020 9:52 pm UTC
New York Jets QB Sam Darnold is working out with WR Denzel Mims this weekend.
Huddle Up: Darnold will have several new receivers to work with this upcoming season and is starting to build chemistry with Mims. Darnold probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues in 2020, while Mims could be a late round option.
Posted 6/12/2020 2:13 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell has no guaranteed money in his deal after this season. If he stays, he is due to make an $8 million salary and receive a $3 million roster bonus that the team is likely not willing to shell out unless he has a monster season.
Huddle Up: Bell had a disastrous year last season, but he put together enough volume in PPR leagues to remain serviceable. His work is likely to be tapered back in 2020 in hopes of a resurgence. He'll be a great RB2 in PPR leagues as he's still just 28.
Posted 6/12/2020 1:09 am UTC
New York Jets WR Denzel Mims might be held back a little by not having a true offseason program, but SNY's Ralph Vacchiano believes he will be 'a big contributor at some point in Year 1.'
Huddle Up: It would be mildly surprising if Mims didn't make an impact in 2020, as the only real threat to his playing time on the outside is Breshad Perriman. As Vacchiano notes, the rookie offers size, speed and skills that just doesn't exist anywhere else on the depth chart. While Jamison Crowder and Chris Herndon figure to be the primary targets in the passing game, Mims should emerge as the clear No. 2 receiver by the end of the season and be a worthy fantasy WR5 at worst.
Posted 5/29/2020 1:30 am UTC
New York Jets WR Denzel Mims says his blocking ability is one of his top traits and it helps him in other areas of his game. 'I can say the strongest part of my game is really my blocking,' Mims said. 'I am a guy that really loves to block and I take pride in that. You got to block for your running backs and your quarterback because if I want the ball and I want them to be able to trust me, I feel like I need to think the game when it comes to blocking first. Then, I will be able to catch the balls.'
Huddle Up: Mims could become the Jets' No. 1 option in the passing game early in his rookie season, as he gets set to compete with Breshad Perriman, Josh Doctson and Jamison Crowder for looks from QB Sam Darnold. He's a late-round target as a WR4/5 in redraft leagues, but he has a promising future in keeper/dynasty leagues.
Posted 5/27/2020 7:44 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell said he is looking forward to playing behind the team's offensive line this upcoming season after they added several new linemen during the offseason, according to's Jeremy Fowler.
Huddle Up: Bell had a disappointing 2019 season compared to his play in the past and finished with 789 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He also recorded 461 receiving yards and one touchdown. He should have a better understanding of the offense this upcoming season and has a good chance of improving his stats. He can be a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Posted 5/27/2020 12:30 am UTC
New York Jets QB Sam Darnold was accurate on 52 percent of his throws that traveled more than five yards downfield in 2019. Every other qualified quarterback was 57.1 percent accurate on similar throws.
Huddle Up: This is the kind of thing that can happen to a quarterback when he has to deal with the combination of receivers not getting open quickly enough and the offensive line failing to hold up. Fortunately, he had Jamison Crowder to help him out with the short stuff, as the duo hooked up 70 times in the 13 games Darnold played. With the Jets making serious upgrades all along the offensive line, drafting Denzel Mims and getting Chris Herndon back, look for Darnold to be a solid fantasy QB2 in 2020.
Posted 5/22/2020 8:37 pm UTC
Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Joe Flacco (Broncos) agreed to a one-year contract with the New York Jets, his agency said Friday, May 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Flacco, reportedly healthy after neck surgery, enters as a backup. He is more of a name than a fantasy consideration -- which would require a Sam Darnold injury/illness. There's nothing to see here for 2020 fantasy football draft plans, of course.
Posted 5/22/2020 2:30 pm UTC
New York Jets fourth-round pick RB La'Mical Perine worked on his receiving skills in the offseason, according to Orlando Sentinel reporter Edgar Thompson, who works the Florida Gators beat. 'He has great hands, he's a very good receiver,' Thompson said. 'He worked with the receivers during the offseason, honing his route-running skills. So he's a threat out of the backfield.'
Huddle Up: Perine has a good chance to be second in the pecking order to Le'Veon Bell, who may have lost a step in his own right as well. Perine is a great dynasty chip with some sneaky upside in 2020.
Posted 5/21/2020 11:40 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Frank Gore said Thursday, May 21, he's happy to play the veteran role and help support RB Le'Veon Bell and the other running backs on the Jets' roster. 'It will be fun, man,' he said. 'I've been around a bunch of talented running backs in my career, college and NFL. I'm going to do whatever it takes to help him and help the other guys.'
Huddle Up: The Jets also drafted RB Lamical Perine in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, so it's unlikely Gore will have much fantasy value at any point this season unless Bell were to miss time.
Posted 5/21/2020 7:24 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Frank Gore said he did not consider retirement this offseason because he believed that he can play at least one more season.
Huddle Up: Gore should be the primary backup to Le'Veon Bell and will see a handful of carries each game. Fantasy players probably can avoid Gore in fantasy drafts or have him as a handcuff to Bell.
Posted 5/21/2020 12:33 am UTC
New York Jets TE Chris Herndon was limited to one game and one catch last season after suffering a setback with his hamstring following his season-opening suspension. However, his lack of time on the field has not dampened the enthusiasm of head coach Adam Gase. 'I think everyone can agree that we were all excited to see what he could do going into last year. We felt good about so many things, and it just didn't work out with the suspension and the injury. Then we finally get him on the field and he played like (18) plays. He's a guy that we're excited to get back and can't really wait to get going. And see how he'll fit in with everything,' Gase told the New York Post.
Huddle Up: Shortly upon taking the job last winter, Gase referred to Herndon as a "unicorn" because of all the things he can do. Assuming his injury luck turns around in 2020, it's not unthinkable he emerges as the Jets' top red zone option and finishes behind Jamison Crowder for the team lead in catches. Few tight ends - especially those that are taken near the end of fantasy drafts - possess the kind of upside he does, so he's well worth a late-round flier.
Posted 5/15/2020 10:42 pm UTC
New York Jets TE Chris Herndon is expected to be the starting tight end this upcoming season and should have a solid role in the passing game, in the opinion of the New York Post's Brian Costello.
Huddle Up: Herndon was limited to one game this past season but did play well during his rookie season. He should receive a solid amount of targets in 2020 and can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.
Posted 5/11/2020 8:14 pm UTC
New York Jets RBs Le'Veon Bell and Frank Gore should have success this upcoming season, according to head coach Adam Gase. 'Those two guys can really do some damage together,' Gase said. 'We have two guys that can play all three downs. They both have outstanding skill sets. There's a little bit of difference in their running style and how they do things, but we know Frank really well and we know how to use them.'
Huddle Up: Bell is coming off a disappointing 2019 season but should receive most of the carries in the 2020 season. He can still be considered at least a No. 2 fantasy running back. Gore will receive a handful of carries each game but probably is a depth option for fantasy player.
Posted 5/10/2020 10:44 pm UTC
New York Jets RBs Frank Gore (44 percent) and Le'Veon Bell (42.4) ranked 27th and 28th, respectively, out of 29 ball carriers in rushing success rate (RSR), according to NFL Next Gen Stats. RSR is defined as the percentage of run plays resulting in a successful play based on the yards to go by down: at least 40 percent on first down, at least 50 percent on second down and conversion on third and/or fourth down.
Huddle Up: Neither of these results should be all that surprising, as Gore was a 36-year-old back running in between the tackles for the Buffalo Bills for the bulk of 2019. Bell is significantly younger (turned 28 in February), but his offensive line was a far cry from what he had during his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jets made a number of additions up front this offseason, so it wouldn't be all that surprising if Bell is significantly more efficient with his 270 or so touches in 2020 than he was on 311 last year.
Posted 5/05/2020 3:45 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Frank Gore (Bills) is signing a one-year deal with the New York Jets, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN Tuesday, May 5. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.
Huddle Up: Gore will play for his third AFC team in as many years. Jets head coach Adam Gase tipped his hand with comments about Le'Veon Bell seeing a lessened workload, and the ageless Gore just happens to be the guy to help. This is a little bit of a setback for rookie RB Lamical Perine, but Gore is entering his age-37 season and is coming off of the lowest yards-per-carry average (3.6) of his NFL career. Gore and Gase worked together in Miami during the 2018 season, a year in which Gore ran 156 times for 722 yards (4.6 YPC) but failed to rush for a touchdown. He's merely a handcuff to Bell in 2020 drafts.
Posted 5/04/2020 1:51 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to receive a lighter workload this season as the team looks to include more backs into the scheme. 'I do think we have some guys that can help maybe lessen the load on (Bell) to where it's not all on him,' head coach Adam Gase said. 'Hopefully, we can get some of the younger backs to where we can make a good one-two punch to where we can really excel instead of feeling like it's just all on him all the time.'
Huddle Up: Bell rushed for 3.2 yards per carry on 245 rushes for 789 yards and three scores. He caught 66 balls for 461 yards and another touchdown. Bell has a lot of mileage on him at 28, but he's still a high-end PPR RB2 target that could creep back as an RB1.
Posted 5/03/2020 8:52 pm UTC
New York Jets QB Sam Darnold was 43.8 percent accurate on play-action passes last season - the lowest such mark in the league.
Huddle Up: This kind of thing can happen when a team doesn't have much of an offensive line and a receiver capable of threatening defenses downfield consistently. The Jets bolstered their offensive line this offseason and should now have a receiver in Denzel Mims who can make more plays downfield. Darnold figures to remain firmly in QB2 territory for fantasy purposes, but he should be more consistent in 2020.
Posted 4/26/2020 4:11 pm UTC
New York Jets WR Denzel Mims likely will receive immediate playing time as a rookie unless the team signs another veteran receiver this offseason.
Huddle Up: Mims has a chance to join the starting lineup during his rookie season and should be part of the three-receiver sets even if he does not start. He has a chance to be at least a No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.
