Peake is expected to benefit from added snaps on offense Sunday against the Patriots with Jermaine Kearse (Achilles) inactive for the contest and Quincy Enunwa (ankle) having been moved to injured reserve earlier in the week, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.
Primarily a special-teams contributor this season, Peake has notched only two receptions for 25 yards through 12 games. The absences of Kearse and Enunwa will create an opening for the likes of Peake, Andre Roberts, Deontay Burnett and J.J. Jones to all see more work, but none of the quartet amounts to much more than a dart throw for fantasy purposes. No. 1 wideout Robby Anderson and top tight end Chris Herndon are far better bets to deliver useful stat lines among the Jets' pass catchers.
Peake caught his lone target for 14 yards in Sunday's 24-10 loss to Chicago.
Peake's impact lies primarily on special teams -- this was his first reception of the season. He should continue to play an offensive snap here and there while New York battles injuries at the wide receiver position, but Peake shouldn't pique owners' interest.
Peake was unable to catch his only target during Sunday's 37-17 loss to Minnesota.
Peake has just 23 receiving yards the whole season and things don't look to be getting any brighter. Not only does Sunday bring a Chicago pass defense that has confounded opponents with its rush at times this season, but the signing of Rishard Matthews is likely to push Peake even further down the depth chart. Peake should not be on your radar.
Peake (hamstring) is a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Peake is participating in practice after sitting out three consecutive regular season games. It's a step in the right direction for Peake, but the depth wideout's availability for Sunday's game against the Vikings remains up in the air. Whenever Peake does retake the field he's likely to play the majority of his snaps on special teams.
Coach Todd Bowles has ruled Peake (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Colts, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Peake didn't participate in practice Thursday for the second straight day, so it's no surprise that he'll be sidelined for the third week in a row. In the three games he's dressed this season, Peake has logged just 13 offensive snaps compared to 42 on special teams, so his absence won't have much of an impact on New York's passing game.
