Jets' Jeff Smith: One catch after bye
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith caught his lone target for five yards in Sunday's 34-28 loss to the Chargers.

Smith has been a nonfactor since the rest of New York's receiving corps have healed. He has topped 30 yards only once all season and will continue to work in a depth role against the Dolphins in Week 12.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Nonfactor in Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith wasn't targeted in Monday's 30-27 loss to the Patriots.

Smith was relegated to the No. 5 wide receiver role with all three of Denzel Mims, Breshad Perriman and Jamison Crowder healthy for the first time. He played just two offensive snaps as a result and likely will remain a nonfactor moving forward barring further injuries up the depth chart.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Eight targets in Week 8 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith caught three of eight targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 35-9 loss to the Chiefs.

Smith's starting on the outside with the Jets beat up at wide receiver, but he hasn't demonstrated the skills necessary to make the most of these opportunities. Despite being targeted at least eight times on three different occasions this season, Smith has topped 30 yards only once. Even if New York doesn't get any of its injured receivers back against New England in Week 9, Smith's impact figures to remain minimal.

Jets' Jeff Smith: No catches in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 18-10 loss to the Bills.

Smith didn't get much attention from starting quarterback Sam Darnold, who threw for just 120 yards in his return from a shoulder injury. Fellow wide receiver Breshad Perriman exited with a possible concussion, so Smith could have a path to more playing time in Week 8 against the Chiefs, but he's unlikely to turn that potential increase in snaps into much production based on what we've seen from the Jets so far.

Jets' Jeff Smith: One catch in Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith caught one of four targets in Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Dolphins.

Smith started on the outside opposite the returning Breshad Perriman (ankle) but did little with the opportunity. Chris Hogan (ankle) and Denzel Mims (hamstrings) are on IR, but the latter could be nearing a return and will likely push Smith down to a depth role at that point.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Does little with big volume
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith caught only three of 11 targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Cardinals.

After a big showing last week, Smith led the Jets in targets in this one, but the second-year receiver did very little with his opportunities. His workload over the last two games (20 targets) is primarily a result of Breshad Perriman (ankle) being unavailable, so there's no guarantee Smith's burst of relevance will continue in Week 6 against the Chargers.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Strong showing in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith brought in seven of nine targets for 81 yards in the Jets' 37-28 loss to the Broncos on Thursday.

The Boston College product had been activated off injured reserve earlier in the day, and he was put right to work with Breshad Perriman (ankle) out of action for Thursday's game. Smith, who recorded just one reception for 12 yards during his rookie 2019 campaign, ended up co-leading the team in catches alongside Jamison Crowder, while his receiving yardage tally checked in second only behind his teammate. It remains to be seen if this performance will garner Smith a solid role in a Week 5 home battle against the Cardinals on Sunday, Oct. 11 even if Perriman is back in uniform for that contest.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Comes off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (shoulder) has been activated off IR in advance of Thursday night's game against the Broncos, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

He'll bolster a Jets' wideout corps that will be without Breshad Perriman (ankle) and Denzel Mims (hamstring) this week. The team also has a couple of players who head into Thursday night banged up, in Jamison Crowder (hamstring) and Chris Hogan (ribs). It remains to be seen how heavily Smith will be used in his return to action, but he has a chance to be involved in the offense right away, considering all the injuries the Jets are dealing with.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Coming off IR soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase said Smith (shoulder) will practice Tuesday and should come off injured reserve soon, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Smith's return to practice opens up a 21-day window for the Jets to reinstate him from injured reserve and add him to the active roster. Based on Gase's comments, Smith could be an option to return from IR as soon as Thursday's game versus the Broncos. The Jets' pass catchers are still banged up, as Breshad Perriman (ankle) is already ruled out, and Jamison Crowder and Chris Hogan (ribs) still haven't logged full practices. If both Perriman and Crowder are sidelined Thursday, Smith could be in store for a decent amount of snaps if he ends up being activated ahead of the contest.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets placed Smith (shoulder) on injured reserve Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Smith received good news from an MRI in late August, but the Jets will give him additional time to recover, as the wideout isn't eligible to return until Week 4. The team's receiver corps is riddled with injuries, but at this time, Jamison Crowder (lower leg), Breshad Perriman (knee) and Denzel Mims (hamstring) are all projected to start in three-wide sets to begin the year.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Expected to miss two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (shoulder) is expected to miss two weeks but could be back even sooner after receiving encouraging MRI results on the injury he suffered Saturday, Rich Cimini of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

It sounds like Smith should be back just in time for the Sept. 13 season opener. With New York's already thin receiving corps also battling the injury bug, Smith could play a bigger role than expected if he's healthy for the opener. On the other hand, he's not even a lock to make the roster at the moment.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Suffers shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith left Saturday's practice with a shoulder injury, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Smith is largely unknown after going undrafted in 2019 out of Boston College, where he played quarterback, but he's among the Jets' most explosive athletes (4.36 40, 127-inch broad jump) and could emerge at some point if his wide receiver skill set develops. An absence of any duration would make it more difficult for Smith to do that, unfortunately. As a practice squad call-up in Week 15 of 2019, Smith caught one of two targets for 14 yards on 14 snaps against Baltimore before suffering a season-ending high ankle sprain.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (ankle) was added to injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

A high-ankle sprain is usually a multiweek injury, and Smith had already been declared out for the year. It's very unfortunate timing for the undrafted rookie as he had just been promoted from the practice squad and was making his NFL debut when he got hurt.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain Friday and is out for the season, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Smith sustained the injury during Thursday's loss to the Ravens, which was his first action of the season. The 22-year-old spent most of the season on the team's practice squad before being promoted to the active roster earlier this week.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Injures ankle Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to head coach Adam Gase, Smith suffered an ankle injury in Thursday's 42-21 loss to the Ravens and will be evaluated Friday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Smith was promoted to the Jets' active roster earlier this week and secured one of two targets for 12 yards in Thursday's contest. He could have had a much bigger night if not for a missed connection on a Sam Darnold deep ball in the second quarter, during which Smith appeared to slow down on his route and was subsequently overthrown. The severity of the receiver's injury will likely be known in the near future, and he will have a full 10 days to recover before the Jets take on the Steelers in Week 15.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Promotion official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets officially promoted Smith to their 53-man roster Monday. Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

There was speculation that the Boston College product would be joining the roster earlier Monday, and that has now been made official. Smith brings depth to the offense as well as special-teams upside for the Jets.

Jeff Smith: Expected to join 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets are expected to promote Smith to the active roster ahead of Thursday's tilt against the Ravens, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Smith offers versatility and special-teams upside for the Jets, having been utilized as both a receiver and rusher during his time at Boston College. It looks as though the undrafted rookie will get a shot to make his NFL debut versus Baltimore on Thursday.

Jets' Jeff Smith: Signs with New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith signed a contract with the Jets on Friday.

Smith, a former quarterback, recorded 72 catches for 1,078 yards as a receiver at Boston College. The undrafted free agent was also commonly used in the ground game, posting 902 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on the ground during his time there.
