Jets' Charone Peake: Should have plenty of chances in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peake has an opportunity to earn a key role in a revamped Jets receiving corps, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

With Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall gone, the Jets need someone to step up alongside Quincy Enunwa. Robby Anderson did flash potential as an undrafted rookie last year, but he may face league discipline for an offseason arrest, and fellow 2016 UDFA Jalin Marshall is already suspended through Week 4. Meanwhile, 2017 draft picks ArDarius Stewart (thumb/groin) and Chad Hansen (knee) missed most of the offseason program with injuries and may thus find themselves limited to second- or third-team reps when training camp opens. Peake, a seventh-round selection last year, could open camp as the No. 3 or 4 receiver, despite producing only 5.5 yards per target on 34 looks as a rookie. He's a former top recruit who was buried on a deep roster for much of his time at Clemson, and then ran a 4.45 40-yard dash at the 2016 Combine while checking in at 6-foot-2, 209 pounds.

Jets' Elijah McGuire: Will not be ignored on offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGuire is expected to carve out a role on offense behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell this season, reports.

McGuire, a sixth-round pick in this year's draft, could be used as a pass catcher out of the backfield, though with Forte and Powell expected to get a vast majority of the touches, it's tough to see the rookie making a meaningful fantasy impact if the incumbents stay healthy.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Could be backup this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell could play a complementary role to starter Matt Forte this season, reports.

Powell took over the backfield at the end of last season when Forte was out injured, and while he played well enough for many to think he could win the starting job this year, is apparently not believing it. Whether Powell wins the starting job or not, both backs, plus rookie Elijah McGuire, figure to split touches, which obviously limits their respective upsides.

Jets' Matt Forte: Could be workhorse
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte (knee) is expected to be the Jets' primary running back this season, with Bilal Powell playing a complementary role, reports.

Powell took over the Jets' backfield toward the end of last year in place of the injured Forte, and while there have been plenty of expectations that Powell could win the starting job, is obviously not buying it. Nevertheless, Forte's upside will certainly be capped due to Powell's presence, as well as that of rookie Elijah McGuire, who figures to get more work as the season unfolds.

Jets' ArDarius Stewart: Not sure if he'll be ready for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (groin/thumb) is not sure if he will be ready for the start of training camp, though coach Todd Bowles is optimistic, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Selected in the third round of this year's draft at No. 79 overall, Stewart couldn't have landed in a better position to earn immediate playing time, though the likelihood of poor quarterback play figures to limit his productivity even if he's regularly on the field. His bid for a starting role did take a bit of a hit when he missed time at OTAs due to a thumb injury which ultimately required surgery in June. With the rookie already slated to miss minicamp, the Jets decided it was best that he also have surgery on a lingering groin injury that likely would've required attention at some point in his career. In the meantime, Eric Decker's release further thinned out a shaky receiving corps, leaving Quincy Enunwa as the No. 1 target and Robby Anderson -- who may be facing a suspension -- as the team's only other wideout with any real NFL track record. Even if he misses a good chunk of camp, Stewart should be in the mix for a key early-season role, with the Jets hoping his polish as a receiver makes up for his middling athletic measurables.
