Smith replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick in Monday's game against the Cardinals after throwing yet another red-zone interception, and while Smith was also picked off in his limited playing time, Fitzpatrick's struggles over the course of the season have landed him on the no. 2 spot on the depth chart. Smith was a fairly weak fantasy option when he was the starter a few years ago, and with Brandon Marshall his only established wideout, it's tough to see a fantasy breakout happening anytime soon.
It has not yet been determined why Henderson was placed on the list, but the list works like the IR, meaning the linebacker is likely done for the year. With fellow linebacker Darron Lee also out with injury, Bruce Carter figures to take on a big role against the Ravens on Sunday.
Richardson missed the team's opener due to a one-week suspension for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy. He'll be back at practice Monday and should return to the starting lineup at defensive end for the Jets' Week 2 matchup with the Bills. Richardson started 11 games during his 2015 campaign following a four-game suspension to start the year and finished with 35 tackles and five sacks.
Forte is in line to play in Sunday's game against the Ravens, though a more pressing concern is that he's been losing snaps to Bilal Powell, who saw 39 out of a possible 54 snaps on offense in this past Monday's loss to the Cardinals. Meanwhile, Forte was on the field for 21 snaps in the contest, rushing nine times for 19 yards and catching one of three targets for three yards.
Marshall is coming off a season where he appeared in 13 games with Jacksonville, recording a total of nine sacks on the year. He also served as the Jaguars' primary kickoff return man, where he averaged 26.6 yards per return. So, while he likely won't see much time on the field at cornerback, he has shown some promise in contributing on special teams.
Carter was active in Week 1 but never saw the field, and he likely isn't in line for much playing time against Buffalo unless an injury forces him onto the field for extended time.
Burris a big corner who might not have the athleticism to run alongside the league's faster receivers, but college quarterbacks generally declined to throw his way at North Carolina State. The Jets will presumably count on Burris to provide some push in press coverage.
Jenkins started all 15 games he played for the Bears last season, recording a career-high 32 tackles and four sacks while doing so. In joining the Jets, Jenkins bolsters their front-seven options with another experienced defender.
The former sixth round pick out of Maine serves primarily as a depth cornerback for the Jets. James will have to prove his worth throughout training camp and the preseason to ensure a spot on the team come September.
"Every time I step on the field now it's with purpose and with extra vigor that I never really had," Catapano said. "It feels great. I feel better than ever."
Catapano played in 15 games during his rookie season in 2013 and he totaled four tackles and one sack. He said he's ready to surpass that in 2015.
"I'm ready to show that I offer a lot to this team. I'm ready to step up in big situations and starting situations," Catapano said. "I just want to keep getting better every day… and play to the best of my abilities."
Jenkins missed practice during the week and was doubtful to play on Thursday, making his inactive status unsurprising. Now missing his second straight game, it's unclear when the rookie will make his debut, but the long week prior to the team's Week 3 game may be enough for him to return by then.
The Jets' offense really struggled against the Cardinals, both through the air and on the ground, and while Peake was a popular option in the passing game, he wasn't able to make much of an impact. Eric Decker's continued absence due to a shoulder injury opens up plenty of targets, and with Quincy Enunwa unable to take a lead for those opportunities, Peake could garner more playing time in the coming weeks.
Bryce Petty played the entire second half for the Jets and appears to be in serious contention for the backup job. With the Jets expected to play most of their starters into the second half against the Giants, Hackenberg will only have their final preseason game to make a case for a roster spot.
Prior to his release, Pope led Seattle with 162 rushing yards during preseason play. Despite the Seahawks' interest in keeping the Jacksonville State product on the team's practice squad, the Jets were able to snag the rookie before he could clear waivers. Given the Jets' depth at running back, Pope figures to make his biggest impact on special teams.
Although Blake Bortles through 40 passes in this game, Gilchrist failed to record an interception in his third straight contest. In addition, he now has recorded fewer than four tackles in five of his last seven games.
Stanford will look to provide depth to a thin linebacker corps for the Jets. Erin Henderson is likely out for the year after being placed on the NFI and Darron Lee remains sidelined with an ankle injury, so Stanford could see some immediate action in Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.
Allen spent the entirety of the 2015 season recovering from a torn achilles he suffered during training camp, and signed with the Texans in March of 2016 before being released by the team during final roster cuts. However, it didn't take long for Allen to get scooped up by his old squad. He spent the first three seasons of his career with the Jets, starting 18 of 38 games, but returns to New York firmly entrenched behind Marcus Gilchrist on the free safety depth chart.
Seferian-Jenkins' ankle injury has limited him to just one appearance since signing with the Jets and will keep him sidelined once again Sunday. As a result, Kellen Davis and Brandon Bostick should be first-up when it comes to tight end snaps, but given the low upside there, the Jets will likely continue to make use of multi-receiver sets on offense.
Lee sprained his ankle in Monday's loss to the Cardinals and hasn't practiced since. Bruce Carter figures to be in line for an increased workload with Lee out.
Decker was already ruled out for the season due to a torn rotator cuff that needs surgery. He apparently also needed surgery on his hip, and he won't have the shoulder procedure until he no longer needs crutches, according to Vacchiano. Considering the hip procedure comes with a six-month recovery timetable and the shoulder procedure with an eight-month timetable, Decker may be in some danger of missing the beginning of the 2017 season.
There was a possibility that Anderson could have gotten more opportunities with Eric Decker (shoulder) sidelined, but it didn't materialize Sunday, as five other players finished with at least as many targets. Given all the options at quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's disposal, there's little reason to think Anderson will be a viable fantasy option in most formats.
With Victor Cruz looking healthier, and Tavarres King playing well, there was no room for White.
The absence of Eric Decker (shoulder) was supposed to open up more targets for Enunwa, but he just hasn't been able to get enough passes thrown his way to make himself a viable fantasy option in most formats. In fact, Robby Anderson (six) and Charone Peake (10) finished with more targets Monday, and with Matt Forte and Bilal Powell also available for passes, there's little optimism that Enunwa will break out soon.
Williams has been absolutely dominant this year, as he's picked up at least half a sack in four of the five games he's played. In addition, he's forced fumbles in two of his last four contests. As part of a supremely talented Jets front line, will continue to be a dominant force could be a huge contributor to fantasy teams.
Petty hasn't been active yet this season and Thursday marks the first time he's practiced since bruising his shoulder in the preseason. He's unlikely to play in Week 6 despite practicing since he remains a distant No.3 option behind quarterbacks Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith.
Revis was absent from week 5's loss to the Steelers, and was limited at practice throughout the week. He was ultimately deemed questionable for Monday's contest, but has since been ruled active. He figures to take on his usual workload in the contest.
Wilkerson has started every game this season, but didn't practice Wednesday with a vague ankle injury. He returned to the field Thursday, though, so the injury doesn't seem serious. Jarvis Jenkins will likely take his place in the starting lineup if Wilkerson is ultimately unavailable.
Mangold tweaked his knee in Week 5 against the Steelers, but ended up playing against the Cardinals on Monday night. Thus, though listed as questionable, he doesn't seem to be in danger of missing this weekend's action.
McDougle was originally drafted in the third round of the 2014 draft, but his rookie season was quickly derailed by a torn ACL. The Jets had hoped that McDougle would rebound in 2015, but the 25-year-old never seemed to return to his old self after the injury.
After spending the last week on the Buccaneers' 53-man roster, Butler was waived in the hours leading up to Monday's win at Carolina. He now joins a Jets receiving corps dealing with shoulder injuries to Eric Decker and Jalin Marshall, but if one or both are trending toward an appearance Monday versus the Cardinals, Butler could again find himself without an NFL home.
Matt Forte continues to dominate the carries out of the backfield (he rushed nine times for 19 yards), and Powell finished with only one more target. That being said, neither back was effective Monday night. Powell's fantasy upside isn't that high to begin with, but if Forte gets more action on passing downs, it'll only hurt Powell's value.
No Jets tight end caught a pass in the first four games of the season, and while Bostick was finally able to get his first reception, newly signed Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught both of his targets for 17 yards Sunday. While the progress is good, there's little reason to think either player will be a viable fantasy option in most formats.
Although Pryor only played in 13 games this year, he showed improvement in his second season, as he intercepted the first two passes of his career and increased his tackle total by nine from his rookie year. He's clearly in position to continue his progression, especially with head coach Todd Bowles preparing for his second season with the team's defensive system. Pryor's under contract for two more years with the Jets before the team can choose to exercise a fifth-year option in 2018.
Keeton had his eyes set on providing depth in the defensive backfield for the Jets. Specifically, he was competing with Marcus Williams to backup Buster Skrine at right cornerback. The 23-year-old rookie recorded one pass defended and four tackles in as many preseason games.
Fitzpatrick has struggled considerably this season after holding out this summer, and despite Bowles saying Monday that Fitzpatrick was still his starter, he's backtracked to the point of replacing him with Smith, who hasn't shown anything in his previous starts to make it seem like a fantasy breakout is coming.
Davis, who was limited on the field Monday, was given the green light for Tuesday's practice session after he injured his ribs during Sunday's loss to the Bengals. The Jets have a quick turnaround this week, as they face the Bills on Thursday, so look for more updates on his health to come in the next couple of days.
Harris was back on the field as a full participant since injuring his hamstring in Week 5. The veteran appears likely to take the field against the Ravens, but could see his reps monitored due to the injury. If that is the case, expect Bruce Carter to see some expanded reps this Sunday.
Ochi's signing comes in the wake of linebacker Erin Henderson being placed on the Non-Football Injury list, which will likely hold him out the rest of the year. Ochi will provide depth for a decimated Jets linebacker corps.
Just a day after head coach Todd Bowles originally said that Thomas would miss "at least a couple weeks" with a torn labrum, Thomas was placed on injured reserve, so the timetable for his return is still up in the air. Sheldon Richardson and Jarvis Jenkins will likely see an increase in snaps with Thomas out. Jeremy Ross was signed Thursday to the team's open roster spot.
Clady tore his ACL this past Wednesday during an organized team activity practice. The Broncos signed Ryan Harris to the roster soon after announcing Clady sustained a season-ending injury.
Harvin is nursing a rib injury he suffered during Week 16’s game against the Patriots.
Deals can't be signed until 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.
Williams missed the previous two games with a knee injury, but he was able to practice fully all week in preparation for Saturday's game. However, with Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie fully healthy heading into the marquee matchup, Williams only figures to see the field in obvious passing situations.
Mauldin was a solid pass-rusher last season, but the Jets will need him to develop into a three-down player after they let Quinton Coples go last season and were forced to use defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson on the weak side. With Damon Harrison off to the Giants, the Jets will need their linebackers to step up in their run defense, which could generate plenty of tackles for Mauldin.
Wilds could be stashed on the injured reserve/designated to return list if his knee injury is more serious than originally thought and if the Falcons want to keep Wilds along with Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman and Terron Ward. However, if his injury isn't all that serious, there's a chance he could edge Ward and earn the third running back role outright.
Morris was competing for a spot in the crowded Jets backfield prior to being released. He injured his shoulder and will require surgery, which was the reason for the team deciding to part ways. He'll be eligible for the injured reserve list if he clears waivers.
The Jets' offense has really struggled to move the ball over the past few weeks, leaving Folk with multiple field-goal attempts just once in the last four games. Given their inability to get him into field-goal range, Folk is a fairly weak fantasy option in most formats.
The nature of Qvale's injury is uncertain, as is a timeline for his return. He fills only a reserve role along the Jets' offensive line, though, so his absence likely won't impact the result of the game.
Smith has yet to play this year, as he continues rehabbing from an ACL tear he suffered last season. However, he saw his individual workload increase on Wednesday. Head coach Todd Bowles is optimistic the 24-year-old can return to practice next week.
The 23-year-old appeared in just eight games for the Jets last season, serving mostly as a backup safety. Martin is eligible to be a member of the team's practice squad should be go unclaimed.
McLendon was an unsung player among the Jets' defensive line, with Muhammad Wilkerson (1.5 sacks) and Leonard Williams (2.5 sacks) getting most of the attention Sunday. Despite the strong performance, his playing time isn't likely to be as high in Week 2 when the Jets will have Sheldon Richardson available after a Week 1 suspension.
Bowman has been dealing with a knee injury since the lead-up to Week 5. With Bowman likely done for the year, Kellen Davis and Brandon Bostick are the Jets' remaining options at tight end with Austin Seferian-Jenkins out due to an injury.
The Jets' offense really struggled, and while Marshall was the lone bright spot, it wasn't nearly enough to keep them in the game. In fact, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick struggled so much that Geno Smith eventually replaced him. Marshall is without question the Jets' best receiver, but until Fitzpatrick gets back to his 2015 self (if he can), Marshall's fantasy upside will be limited.
The secondary will feature the additions of cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie, nickel corner Buster Skrine and free safety Marcus Gilchrist. Plus, first-round pick Leonard Williams will move into the starting lineup due to Sheldon Richardson's four-game suspension.
"I believe we can be as good as we want," defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson said, per NJ.com. "We can be great. We can be the No. 1 defense in the league. We've just got to come in each and every week improving and do our jobs every Sunday."
The Jets defense is expected to be aggressive, especially with the blitz, under first-year coach Todd Bowles.
"This defense should be a playoff defense," Skrine said. "The defense should get us in the playoffs. We have the defense to it. We've got a lot of talent on this defense. It's just about all coming together."
