Percy Harvin's role still undefined with Jets
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Jets aren't sure what role Percy Harvin will play on offense Sunday, according to the Associated Press. 

Harvin is still in the process of digesting the playbook, and it's unclear how the team will opt to feature him in his first game. "He's just getting himself sort of integrated right now, so we'll see," offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said. 

Receivers coach Sanjay Lal has been working with Harvin one-on-one to help him learn the playbook. There's a chance Harvin's snap count will be limited his first game out based on how well he understands the team's offense.

Eric Decker's circumstances are changing with Harvin on board
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Despite poor quarterback play and little help from the rest of the receiving corps, Jets wide receiver Eric Decker has managed to stay relevant in Fantasy. But in those weeks when he goes without a touchdown, such as Week 7 at New England, his yardage alone isn't enough to sustain his Fantasy owners.

His circumstances could change with the Jets welcoming Percy Harvin to the roster Week 8 against Buffalo. Now, defenses have someone else to fear, and on plays when Decker and Harvin are on the field together, Decker will get as little attention from them as he has gotten all year.

That should bode well for his numbers in the long run. How quickly it'll take effect remains to be seen, but because the Bills are so good against the run, allowing just 80.4 yards per game and 3.2 yards per carry, the Jets may try to throw the ball more than usual, making Decker an intriguing option for this week.

In leagues with 12 teams or fewer, he'll probably never be must-start, but Dave Richard is willing to rank him as high as 19th for this week.

One and done for Jets running backs?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson each turned in his best game of the season (or close to it) Week 7 at New England, with Ivory contributing 107 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries and Johnson going for 61 yards on 13 carries. Ivory had averaged just 44.4 rushing yards in his previous five games, and Johnson had averaged just 26.4.

You know the number that jumps out to me in all of that? How likely are those two to get a combined 34 carries again? Their previous combined high was 25, and that came way back in Week 2. They managed to keep it close against the Patriots in Week 7, but that won't be the norm for a 1-6 team with Geno Smith at quarterback.

Besides, they host Buffalo in Week 8. The Bills rank fourth against the run, allowing 80.4 yards per game and 3.2 yards per carry. They haven't allowed a touchdown on the ground all season.

It was nice to see Ivory and Johnson can still perform well when they get the opportunity, but they won't get the opportunity often and wouldn't be able to make the most of it this week anyway. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank Ivory among their top 24 running backs for the week, but for me, that's too high.
