Stephen Hill Fantasy News
Thursday, May 23, 2013, 1:12pm
"We had a good-looking receiving corps that wasn't out there," Jets HC Rex Ryan said.
Santonio Holmes' absence was expected, as he's still recovering from a LisFranc injury that required surgery last September. Ryan said Holmes won't be ready for next month's minicamp, but he expects him to be ready for training camp in late July. Chances are, he'll be limited in camp. The team's goal is to get him ready for Week 1.
Stephen Hill underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last December, and said as recently as two weeks ago that he was 100 percent. But he has sat out the first two OTA practices, according to Ryan.

There are the things Jets WR Stephen Hill must do himself; obstacles he must overcome without the help of a coach or calendar. Last year, he encountered the typical potholes — nagging injuries, an overload of information in a maddening environment — and the not-so-typical. At one point last season a fan once obtained his personal cell phone number and harassed him, via text message, about his uneven play. Hill slogged through games injured, desperate to keep pace and shoulder more responsibility in a woeful offense. He disliked having to explain himself to reporters.
It amounted to a rookie season with flashes of both brilliance and frustration. Hill can smile now when he admits how he felt, like he was simply lost and running in space.
"It’s not hard, it’s just annoying," Hill told The Star-Ledger on a quiet afternoon last week in Florham Park. "We’re always on ESPN for something, and it was just a lot. It put pressure on learning, and then having to explain if I messed up, so that’s where most of the pressure was.
"It probably did throw me off during games, you’re just out there running. That’s what it felt like. I was out there running but I didn’t understand the whole football concept."
Jets to part ways with Sanchez, Tebow
Thursday, December 20, 2012, 11:37am
The Jets will explore all options with Sanchez, including a trade, and the team plans to part ways with Tebow after the season, league sources said Wednesday.
It would be difficult to trade Sanchez because of an $8.25 million guarantee in 2013 in his contract. However, the Jets, who benched Sanchez this week in favor of the unproven Greg McElroy, are taking an open-minded approach and may be willing to start over at quarterback.
Meanwhile, a clearly miffed Tebow, no longer masking his season-long frustration, left no doubt he's unhappy with his role. He will seek to play elsewhere next season, and the Jets appear willing to accommodate his wishes.
It's odd that the Jets never gave Tebow a start after trading for him earlier this year, but trying to get into the minds of the Jets' brass is not an easy thing to do. As for Sanchez, he's not an elite talent, but he wasn't exactly dealing with a good receiving corps this year. Santonio Holmes, Dustin Keller and Stephen Hill all missed extended time with injuries. He's likely to get another crack at a starting job in the next year or two.

Braylon Edwards figures to fill Hill's role in the offense, but is only worth a look in very deep leagues.
Injury Report for MNF: Jets @ Titans
Saturday, December 15, 2012, 7:28pm
New York Jets
TE Jeff Cumberland (wrist), DT Kenrick Ellis (knee/back), DT Damon Harrison (ankle), S LaRon Landry (heel), C Nick Mangold (shoulder), RB Joe McKnight (ankle), G Brandon Moore (hip), LB Calvin Pace (shoulder), RB Bilal Powell (shoulder/toe), QB Mark Sanchez (back), LB Ricky Sapp (ankle), LB Bart Scott (toe), G Matt Slauson (knee), QB Tim Tebow (ribs)
Cumberland will draw another start at tight end with Keller likely to be inactive, and Hill could miss the remainder of the season with a strained LCL injury. As for the Titans, Johnson returned to practice on Friday and is a full go as his ankle isn’t a concern. The Jets offer Johnson a good matchup and he should post solid fantasy production.
