Player Outlook
Coleman stayed with the Jets this season, and he'll be the No. 3 running back at best behind Breece Hall and Michael Carter. If Coleman stays in that role -- Ty Johnson might also be ahead of Coleman on the depth chart -- then he's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues. In 2021, Coleman was the No. 2 running back for the Jets behind Carter, and Coleman had three games with double digits in carries. In those games, Coleman averaged just 7.2 PPR points per game. He failed to score a touchdown and had just 11 catches on 16 targets. At 29, Coleman's best days are likely behind him, and we don't expect him to have much Fantasy value if Hall and Carter are healthy this year.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Returns from reserve list

    The Jets reinstated Coleman (illness) from the active/non-football injury list Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports. Coleman now is in the clear to resume practicing with the Jets as the team begins its first full week of training camp. The veteran will head into the Jets' Aug. 12 preseason opener versus the Eagles as the No. 3 option on the depth chart, but he'll face competition from the likes of Ty Johnson, La'Mical Perine and Zonovan Knight to retain the role heading into Week 1.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Approaching return

    Coach Robert Saleh expects Coleman (illness) to return to practice in the first week of August, Zach Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports. Coleman is the favorite to secure the third spot on New York's running back depth chart behind Breece Hall and Michael Carter, though he'll face competition from the likes of Ty Johnson, La'Mical Perine and Zonovan Knight. The veteran running back opened training camp on the active/non-football illness list, so Coleman will need to be activated before he's eligible to practice.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Dealing with illness

    The Jets placed Coleman on the active/non-football illness list Tuesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. When he was placed on the NFI list earlier Tuesday, it was reported that Coleman suffered an injury while training prior to camp, per Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site. That may have been the case, but the NFL's transaction report officially notes Coleman in fact is on the illness version of the list. He's eligible to practice or play in preseason games at any point, but whenever he's available he'll be working behind rookie Breece Hall and Michael Carter at running back.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Lands on NFI list

    Coleman (undisclosed) has been placed on the active/non-football illness list, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. The report notes that Coleman, who sustained an unspecified injury away from the team facility, can be removed from the list at any time during training camp. Once he re-takes the field, Coleman will look to secure a depth role in the Jets' backfield behind Breece Hall and Michael Carter.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Returning to Jets

    Coleman will re-sign with the Jets, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Coleman, who turns 29 next month, finished last season with 84 carries for 356 yards to go along with 11 catches (on 16 targets) for 49 yards in 11 games. Whereas last year, when Coleman approached Week 1 with starting aspirations, he appears destined for a complementary role behind ascending 2021 fourth-rounder Michael Carter in his second campaign with the Jets.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Sees little action in Week 18

    Coleman carried the ball five times for six yards and failed to catch his only target in Sunday's 27-10 loss to the Bills. The Jets' offense mostly sputtered in this one, but Coleman didn't exactly provide a spark with his rare touches. The former Falcon and 49er heads into free agency having managed to produce only 405 scrimmage yards and zero touchdowns in 11 games this season for the Jets.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Off COVID list

    The Jets activated Coleman (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday. Coleman, who was sidelined for the Jets' Week 17 loss to the Buccaneers, is slated to be available for Sunday's season finale against the Bills. His workload for the Week 18 contest will likely be tied in large part to the status of fellow running back Michael Carter, who suffered a concussion over the weekend but is reportedly "progressing well," per head coach Robert Saleh.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Still on COVID list

    Coleman remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list in advance of Sunday's game against Buccaneers. Until Coleman is activated from the list, look for Michael Carter to log added touches out of the Jets' backfield, with Ty Johnson available to handle complementary work. Austin Walter and La'Mical Perine are also candidates to mix in.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: On COVID list

    Coleman (undisclosed) has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, per Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston and the NFL's official transaction log. Until Coleman clears the NFL's COVID-19 protocols, look for Michael Carter to see added touches out of the Jets backfield, with Ty Johnson on hand to handle complementary work and Austin Walter and La'Mical Perine also candidates to mix in.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Doesn't do much with 15 touches

    Coleman rushed 14 times for 57 yards and caught his only target for four yards in Sunday's 26-21 win over the Jaguars. Coleman's 15 touches marked his second-highest total of the season, but he finished a distant third on the team in rushing yards behind Michael Carter (16 carries for 118 yards) and quarterback Zach Wilson, who had 91 yards and a touchdown on four rushing attempts. The Jets would like to maintain their run-heavy approach in Week 17 given all their injuries at wide receiver, but a Tampa Bay team with a far superior offense and run defense will make such a game plan much tougher to execute than it was against Jacksonville.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Effective in limited action

    Coleman rushed eight times for 50 yards and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 31-24 loss to Miami. Coleman came inches short of scoring his first touchdown of the season in the second quarter, but he was tackled just before crossing the goal line and quarterback Zach Wilson took it himself on the following play. He split carries with Michael Carter, who mustered just 18 rushing yards on his eight attempts in his return from an ankle injury. Carter had established himself as New York's lead back prior to his injury, and it's unclear whether the team was simply easing the rookie back in after he had been out since Week 11, or if Coleman will remain part of a backfield timeshare for the team's favorable Week 16 matchup against the Jaguars.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Cleared to face Dolphins

    Coleman (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Dolphins, David Furones of the Sun Sentinel reports. Coleman was able to practice fully in every practice this week after sitting out the Week 14 loss to New Orleans. He's expected to play second fiddle to Michael Carter (ankle) in the Jets' backfield against the Dolphins, but New York will first need to officially active Carter from IR.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Logs full practice

    Coleman (concussion) was listed as a full practice participant Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Coleman was inactive for the Jets' Week 14 loss to the Saints, but his full practice participation to begin Week 15 prep indicates that he's progressing through the NFL's five-step concussion protocol in advance of Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Meanwhile, Michael Carter (ankle) is a candidate to come off injured reserve in advance of the weekend, so Coleman could be headed for a smaller role after he logged a total of 27 carries between both of his previous two appearances Weeks 12 and 13.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Expected back this week

    Jets head coach Robert Saleh said Wednesday that he expects Coleman (concussion) back for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Coleman -- who missed the Jets' Week 14 loss to the Saints -- is thus in line to practice in advance of the contest and is poised to return to action this weekend, barring any setbacks. Along with Coleman, the Jets also expect fellow running back Michael Carter (ankle) to come off injured reserve this week, according to Saleh. Assuming that's the case, Coleman will presumably re-enter the Jets' backfield mix in Week 15 in a lesser role, after having logged double-digit carries in Weeks 12 and 13.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Won't play Sunday

    Coleman (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. Coleman landed in the concussion protocol following last week's loss to the Eagles, and he'll be sidelined for at least one game. The 28-year-old has been operating as the No. 1 tailback with Michael Carter (ankle) on injured reserve, but the Jets will now have to go further down the depth chart. Ty Johnson, who usually works as the passing-down back, should have an increased role versus New Orleans, and Austin Walter also figures to be involved in the offensive game plan.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: No practice activity Thursday

    Coleman (concussion) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Coleman was placed in the NFL's concussion protocol at some point after the Jets' Week 13 loss to the Eagles, even though he wasn't forced to exit that contest early due to an injury. In any case, Coleman's inability to practice even in a limited capacity at this stage of the week isn't a promising sign with regard to his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Saints. The Jets will see if Coleman can take a step forward in terms of activity at Friday's practice before giving him a designation heading into the weekend.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Dealing with concussion

    Coleman entered the NFL's concussion protocol Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. As a result, Coleman won't practice Wednesday, which leaves Ty Johnson, Austin Walter and La'Mical Perine as the Jets' current healthy backfield options as Sunday's game against the Saints approaches. Coleman led the New York backfield in touches in the Week 13 loss to the Eagles, finishing with 11 carries for 58 yards and three receptions for 19 yards.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Leads backfield again

    Coleman carried the ball 11 times for 58 yards in Sunday's 33-18 loss to the Eagles. He added three receptions for 19 yards. Coleman was limited by game script, as the team attempted only 17 rushes on the day. Zach Wilson was the only other Jets' player to record multiple carries, leaving Coleman as the clear primary back once again. Despite the limited volume, he picked up chunk gains of 17 and 15 yards to account for the majority of his production. Coleman figures to have at least one more contest in the top role, as Michael Carter (ankle) is not eligible to return from injured reserve until Week 15.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Gets 18 touches in Houston

    Coleman rushed 16 times for 67 yards and caught two of three targets for three yards in Sunday's 21-14 win over Houston. Coleman led the Jets' backfield in carries and rushing yards, though Ty Johnson and practice squad elevation Austin Walter combined for 80 rushing yards on 15 carries, including a two-yard Walter touchdown run late in the first half. Coleman performed decently as the leading option in a crowded backfield with Michael Carter (ankle) on IR, and he should maintain that role in Week 13 against the Eagles.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Carter injury presents opportunity

    Coleman rushed five times for 16 yards and caught his lone target for two yards in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Dolphins. Coleman posted a forgettable stat line, but it's noteworthy that Ty Johnson only got one rushing attempt to Coleman's five, because starter Michael Carter exited the game with an ankle injury. If Carter's forced to miss additional time, Coleman would likely take over as the primary early-down running back for the Jets in an appetizing Week 12 matchup with the Texans.
