Jets finalizing deal with former Browns’ interim HC Gregg Williams to become their defensive coordinator, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

Schefter went on to say Williams was the defensive coordinator the Jets were targeting no matter who their head coach was; they got their man. Williams won the Super Bowl with the Saints back in 2009.

Jets hire Adam Gase as head coach

ESPN - [Full Article]

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets are expected to hire Adam Gase as their new head coach, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington.

The Jets reached out to Gase soon after he was fired by the Miami Dolphins on Dec. 31. He was only 23-25 in three seasons, but he dominated the Jets, winning five of six meetings.

Gase would become the Jets' first head coach since Bill Parcells (1997) with NFL head coaching experience. He would fill the need for an offensive-minded coach, something they haven't had since Rich Kotite (1995-1996). Gase is also expected to be the Jets' primary playcaller.

Fantasy Impact:

Dowell Loggains is expected to serve as Gase's offensive coordinator though Gase will continue to call plays. After a couple of great seasons as the OC in Denver with Peyton Manning, Gase served as the OC in Chicago (21st in yards, 23rd in points) before three seasons as head coach of the Dolphins (24th/17th, 25th/28th, 31st/26th). He may have more luck in New York with a good young QB in Sam Darnold to build an offense around.

Bucs pick Todd Bowles to run the defense

Todd Bowles, recently fired as the New York Jets head coach, had an interesting choice.

If Bowles wants to be a head coach again, he had to be a coordinator again first. He was a fine defensive coordinator with the Arizona Cardinals; that’s why he got the shot to lead the Jets.

When Bruce Arians took the job as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ head coach, it was expected that Bowles would reunite with him to run the defense. Then an interesting option came along: Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio became the Denver Broncos’ head coach. Bowles reportedly had an opportunity to lead the Bears’ defense. From the outside looking in, it would seem that running the Bears’ elite defense would give Bowles his quickest path back to being a head-coaching candidate.

ESPN reported Bowles will join the Buccaneers after all, as their new defensive coordinator. He must like a challenge.

Fantasy Impact:

Bowles' defenses have been a little up and down. Working backwards, here's how they ranked in yards allowed: 25th, 25th, 11th, 4th (all Jets), 24th, 6th (both with the Cardinals), 15th (Eagles) and 15th (Dolphins). It's not a great sign that the Jets' defense got significantly worse over his two-year tenure or that the Cardinals dropped from 6th to 24th in 2013 and 2014. Bowles did have five-year run from 2011 to 2015 where his defenses where in the top 10 in fewest points allowed in four out of five seasons.

Packers WR Equanimeous St. Brown suffered head injury

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

Equanimeous St. Brown was under evaluation for a head injury suffered Sunday against the Jets.

Fantasy Impact:

At the point of his departure midway through the fourth quarter, St. Brown led the Packers with 94 yards on his five receptions.

Friday, December 21, 2018, 6:10pm

Packers RB Jamaal Williams (toe) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. He was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go. He should see a major workload against the Jets. He’s a good plug-and-play option for owners in need of a starter this week.

Friday, December 21, 2018, 6:10pm

Jets RB Elijah McGuire (ankle, quadricep) took full practice reps all week. He was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go. Last week, McGuire delivered to the tune of 71 total yards and a touchdown on 21 touches. This serves as a reminder that when we’re looking for production from strange places, just follow the volume. McGuire now has two straight games with 14.1 or more fantasy points and is primed for a third as the Packers limp into MetLife Stadium his week.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 16. Nick Foles will start again this week. He put up a measly 9.3 fantasy points last week against the Rams, but he returns home to face a Texans defense that is tough to run on but vulnerable against the pass, yielding 253/2 to Sam Darnold, 399/2 to Andrew Luck, 397/1 to Baker Mayfield and 303/2 to Marcus Mariota in recent weeks.
