The New York Jets released WR Ben Obomanu and RB Kareem Huggins Tuesday, Oct. 1, and re-signed LB Troy Davis in a corresponding move.
Mon, 30 Sep 2013 12:41:10 -0700
New York Jets WR Stephen Hill (concussion) is unlikely to play in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons after sustaining a concussion in Week 4. Hill has 13 catches for 233 yards and one touchdown this season as the team's second leading receiver. WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is also dinged up, and WRs Jeremy Kerley and Ben Obomanu or Clyde Gates would likely start if both Hill and Holmes don't play.
Fantasy Tip: Hill and Holmes are both risky plays this week, for obvious reasons. Kerley is probably the only Jets receiver worth starting, but he doesn't receive a ringing endorsement.
Tue, 10 Sep 2013 09:05:15 -0700
The New York Jets re-signed WR Ben Obomanu Tuesday, Sept. 10. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. In a corresponding move, the team released LB Scott Solomon.

Shugarts.
Fri, 23 Aug 2013 15:03:21 -0700
New York Jets WR Braylon Edwards' (leg) roster spot is now in jeopardy after the team signed WR Mohamed Massaquoi Thursday, Aug. 22. Edwards hasn't taken part in practice in the last four days due to a leg injury. Aside from WR Santonio Holmes (foot), who remains week to week, WRs Jeremy Kerley, Stephen Hill and Clyde Gates are locks at receiver. WR Ryan Spadola is looking more safe, and WR Ben Obomanu is in jeopardy. Head coach Rex Ryan sees similarities between Massaquoi and former Jets wideout Jerricho Cotchery.
Fantasy Tip: Edwards and Massaquoi can be ignored in fantasy circles. Kerley is probably the only Jets receiver worth owning, and that's in extremely deep leagues. The team's QB position is just too volatile.
