ESPN - [Full Article]

At 6-foot-5, 265 pounds, the Jets' second-round pick TE Jace Amaro has the measurements of a sturdy, in-line blocker, but that's not his game. He's at his best when he's detached from the line, either flexed or in the slot or split wide.

He'll bring a different dimension to the offense, creating potential mismatches with his size. The big question is the learning curve. Amaro came from a no-huddle, spread offense at Texas Tech, so the transition may take a while. He looked lost at minicamp, so don't expect him to be an overnight sensation. Coordinator Marty Mornhinweg will feed him the playbook at a gradual rate, trying not to overwhelm him.

Fantasy Impact: 

The team also kept around Jeff Cumberland for his receiving. This story makes it seem like Cumberland may not get as many opportunities because of Amaro. That may be the case, especially as the season goes on. The fantasy potential is clearly with Amaro, but he may have to wait things out. Right now, neither TE is getting drafted in typical leagues according to their ADPs.
