Fantasy Tip: Hackenberg could have a chance to start if the Jets are not able to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick. Owners will need to keep an eye out on the Jets' quarterback situation leading up to training camp. Hackenberg would have receivers to work with if he starts but would only be a low-end No. 2 quarterback in most leagues. Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker would also see their fantasy value drop if Hackenberg starts in 2016.

New York Jets CB Dee Milliner's fifth-year option was declined Monday, May 2, and general manager Mike Maccagnan said it was primarily based on Milliner's injury history. If Milliner plays well in 2016, though, Maccagnan said both sides can try to negotiate a contract following the season.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets CB Dee Milliner did not have his fifth-year option picked up by the Jets Monday, May 2. He will become a free agent after the 2016 season. Milliner missed 27 of 48 games due to surgeries on his Achilles' and wrist.

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will be the starting quarterback when offseason workouts begin, but the team is still looking to re-sign free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Fantasy Tip: Smith will work with the first-team offense as long as the team does not re-sign Fitzpatrick and likely would lose that spot if Fitzpatrick returns. Smith could be the starting quarterback in 2016 if another quarterback is not added but would only be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: The drama increases, as the Jets selected Christian Hackenberg in the second round of the NFL Draft. With Bryce Petty selected in the draft last season, the Jets are stockpiling talent at the position. Fitzpatrick might not be returning to Gang Green, who also still have Geno Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Hackenberg has a lot of attributes you look for in an NFL starting quarterback, but he has some developing to do. He is worth scooping up late in dynasty leagues, but he may never have much fantasy relevance.

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg is expected to sit and grow in his first season in the NFL. If free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is re-signed, it could very well only be a one-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Fantasy Tip: The Jets were in need of a quarterback with the iffy Fitzpatrick situation. Fitzpatrick will start if he does return, but Hackenberg could be the future of the quarterback position. Stay away from him in fantasy this season, though.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets are still in a stalemate with Ryan Fitzpatrick, but he could still re-sign this offseason, which would relegate Hackenberg to a backup role and allow him to learn at the NFL level. Hackenberg is a project at the quarterback position and can't be expected to have much fantasy value, even if he somehow finds himself starting in New York in his rookie season.
