Titans and former NY Jets WR Eric Decker reached agreement on a one-year deal, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

Decker is likely to man the slot with Rishard Matthews and Corey Davis on the outside. Decker's arrival is bad news for both players, as their share of the proverbial pie will be smaller with the very productive Decker soaking up targets. It's great news for Marcus Mariota, who has yet another weapon to throw to. Projections will be updated shortly.

Jets Beat: TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins 'the most impressive player on the field'

Saturday, June 10, 2017, 12:19pm

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Austin Seferian-Jenkins spent a good portion of this offseason getting his life together. He stopped drinking, and lost 25 pounds. In OTAs, he was the most impressive player on the field and caught everything in sight. It's early, but if Seferian-Jenkins can stay healthy, the Jets may actually have a tight end.

Fantasy Impact:

The athletic Seferian-Jenkins could surprise if the good vibes continue into training camp and the season. He played with his likely quarterback, Josh McCown, in Tampa. McCown enhanced Gary Barnidge's numbers in Cleveland -- the tight end's PPR production was 34.5% higher in games that McCown played. So there is reason to believe that ASJ could become a dependable option for McCown, especially considering the Jets' receiving corps (assuming they part ways with Eric Decker).

Jets cleaning house, will release or trade Eric Decker this week

And now the Jets are parting ways with WR Eric Decker, sources tell ESPN. Have told WR they either will release or trade him this week.

Fantasy Impact:

Decker is #good. He would instantly bolster any receiving corps in the league, so we'll be watching this situation closely. Quincy Enunwa and Robbie Anderson and ArDarius Stewart get a bump, but there are still major quarterback issues in New York.

Jets WR Eric Decker in red no contact jersey at start of OTAs.

Fantasy Impact:

Decker is coming off of hip and shoulder surgeries so it's a great sign that he's participating in OTAs. He should be fine for camp and Week 1, though the Jets have serious issues at quarterback.

Jets WR Robby Anderson arrested at a music festival

PFT - [Full Article]

According to a report from Andy Slater of WINZ-AM, Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson is being charged with resisting arrest with violence and also obstruction of justice after an incident at a music festival in Miami.

Anderson had a solid season for the Jets after making the team as an undrafted rookie from Temple. He caught 42 passes for 587 yards and two touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact:

Anderson is expected to play starter's snaps this year with Brandon Marshall gone. We'll have to wait and see how serious this incident turns out to be.

Jets Beat: Bilal Powell 'will become the lead back'

Monday, May 8, 2017, 10:21am

Rich Cimini, ESPN - [Full Article]

I think there will be a shift from last season, which is to say Bilal Powell will become the lead back.

Powell rushed for 411 yards over the final four games, third in the NFL, opening a lot of eyes around the league -- and probably some on his own coaching staff. Curiously, he was an afterthought at the start of the year as Matt Forte was used as the workhorse, but Powell -- perhaps because his legs were fresh -- came on strong when Forte went down with a knee injury.

Forte finished with more offensive touches than Powell -- 248 to 189 -- but Powell was on the field more than Forte -- 51 percent to 47 percent.

Look for the "touches" to flip in the coming season, with Powell moving ahead.

Fantasy Impact:

Powell was the #32 RB through Week 13, before he took over as the lead back, so he should have flex value even if Cimini's prediction doesn't come true. In the final four games, he averaged 23.7 fantasy points (PPR) and was second only to LeVeon Bell at his position. Powell is currently the 30th RB off the board, so there's quite a bit of value here.

Jay Cutler retires from the NFL

Jay Cutler has decided to transition from the field to the broadcast booth, and will now work for Fox Sports.

According to Adam Schefter: "Before deciding to go to FOX, Jay Cutler had real discussions with Jets, and less-promising ones with Texans. Cutler opted for analyst role."

Jets sign a QB: Josh McCown

Monday, March 20, 2017, 7:55pm

Albert Breer - [Full Article]

Josh McCown's 1-year deal with Jets is worth $6 million fully guaranteed. Also has $2M in playtime incentives, $5M in team-based incentives.

Fantasy Impact:

McCown had the best stint of his career playing for Marc Trestman in Chicago in 2013. That year, he posted a 13-to-1 TD-to-INT ratio and averaged 8.2 YPA, a career high. In his 74 other appearances, he averaged 6.54 YPA and posted a 66-to-68 TD-to-INT ratio. Don't expect any miracles in New York, but Eric Decker and the other Jet receivers could have done worse than McCown.

Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (DUI) suspended for two games

Jets announce the NFL has suspended Austin Seferian-Jenkins for two games for violating the substance abuse policy.

Fantasy Impact:

He wasn't much of a fantasy factor before the suspension was announced.

Giants agree to terms to a two-year deal with WR Brandon Marshall

Wednesday, March 8, 2017, 10:12am

Newsday - [Full Article]

After wearing green and white the past two seasons, Brandon Marshall has agreed to terms on a two-year, $12 million deal to join Eli Manning and the Giants, sources told Newsday.

Fantasy Impact:

In his age-32 season, Marshall struggled with injury and inefficiency en route to 59 catches for 788 yards and three touchdowns. It wasn't all his fault, however, as the Jets struggled to throw the ball all year. One year removed from a 109-catch, 1500-yard and 14-touchdown season, he might benefit from a move to the slot, a la Larry Fitzgerald. Eli Manning is an upgrade for Marshall and vice versa. The Giants were 8th in the league in pass attempts, so Marshall should have an opportunity to bounce back. The signing is not great news for Sterling Shepard, who is unlikely to see 105 targets again with a healthy Marshall in the mix. As for Odell Beckham, he'll benefit from the defensive attention Marshall will draw, but may see a drop in targets as well.

'Good chance' Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) misses training camp

Friday, March 3, 2017, 9:56am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jets WR Eric Decker was a 1,000-yard receiver for the Jets in 2015, but his status is uncertain because of health reasons. He underwent surgeries for hip and shoulder injuries last season, and it's unclear when he will return. There's a good chance he will miss training camp.

Fantasy Impact:

Over his last 18 games, which includes all of his games played during the 2015 and 2016 seasons, Decker has averaged 16.4 fantasy points per game (PPR). That's higher than what Doug Baldwin and Brandin Cooks averaged last year (as top 10 receivers). If he can get healthy, he'll be a good value once again in 2017, but his availability for Week 1 is a question mark.

Jets to release WR Brandon Marshall

Friday, March 3, 2017, 9:20am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Continuing their roster purge, the New York Jets intend to release wide receiver Brandon Marshall, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Thursday night.

Marshall's impending release was first reported by Newsday and confirmed by ESPN.

Later Thursday, Marshall posted a farewell message on his Instagram account, thanking the Jets organization as well as "the incredibly loyal Jets fans." He also wrote in part, "I'm looking forward to finding a great organization where I can contribute and bring home a championship."

Fantasy Impact:

In his age-32 season, Marshall struggled with injury and inefficiency en route to 59 catches for 788 yards and three touchdowns. It wasn't all his fault, however, as the Jets struggled to throw the ball all year. One year removed from a 109-catch, 1500-yard and 14-touchdown season, he might benefit from a move to the slot, a la Larry Fitzgerald.
