New York Jets TE Jace Amaro will become a major factor in the offense eventually, according to head coach Rex Ryan. "I like to stay away from the production thing because a lot of things go into that," Ryan said. "But he's going to be a major factor for our football team, and probably very soon." Amaro had two catches on four targets for seven yards in Week 1 in his NFL debut. He's making the transition from being flanked out wide in college to having to block on running plays.
Fantasy Tip: Amaro is worth watching. He could be more involved in the passing game against the Green Bay Packers in Week 2, but even at $3,700 (7.4% of cap) at FantasyScore, he's not worth gambling on just yet.

New York Jets TE Jace Amaro (knee) left practice early Sunday, July 27. Amaro has his right knee wrapped in ice.

New York Jets rookie TE Jace Amaro is struggling in his initial workouts. The no-huddle, spread system at Texas Tech is significantly different from the Jets' deeper pro-style playbook. He looked lost in three-wide packages and needs to polish his routes, in-line position, footwork and releases.
Fantasy Tip: Amaro may be overvalued in fantasy drafts based on his college history and raw talent. But if he loses any time to Jeff Cumberland, Zach Sudfeld or Chris Pantale, that's burying him further into waiver-wire territory. For keeper leagues, of course, he's an intriguing hold if you can sit on a TE backup.

New York Jets TE Jace Amaro received some repetitions while lined up at a wide receiver during practice Wednesday, June 18.
Fantasy Tip: Rex Ryan has been impressed with Amaro during offseason workouts. The rook has a real chance to start as the main tight end, and he's a real pass-catching threat as a safety valve for Geno Smith. Amaro should be drafted as a cheap TE2 option.
