New York Jets QB Geno Smith could be benched if he struggles early in the season, according to head coach Todd Bowles Tuesday, July 28. "If you feel that his position or any other position is hurting the team, as a head coach, it's up to you to do something about it," Bowles said about Smith. "It's not a year-long thing for anybody. You earn your keep by the week. You earn your keep by the day. … If somebody is not doing their job, it's up to me to rectify the situation," said Bowles.
Fantasy Tip: Veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick could find himself in the starting role early on in 2015, but he won't be worth drafting in standard leagues, and he's only a late-round flier in two-QB leagues.

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson will report to training camp, but is still hoping he'll receive a contract extension, admitting he is still frustrated that the latter has not happened yet. "I thought a deal would be made, but at the end of the day, it's a business. These things take time," Wilkerson said.

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall tweeted that he was in Jamaica for his sister's wedding, and he was worried the second-hand marijuana smoke could force him to fail a drug test. It's unclear how serious he was, but he can't be suspended for his first positive marijuana test under the league's substances of abuse policy.
Fantasy Tip: Marshall loses some luster with age and a questionable passer throwing to him, but he's still a steady WR2 in fantasy.

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson is expected to report for the start of training camp, but head coach Todd Bowles is not taking anything for granted. Wilkerson is entering the final year of his contract.

Fantasy Tip: Amaro had a pretty quiet 2014 season with 345 yards and two touchdowns but could be more involved this season. Amaro could be a No. 2 tight end for owners in deeper leagues next season.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall's comments seem like a jab at Jay Cutler more than a compliment of Orton, but if Geno Smith can't play consistent football this season, Marshall could be begging for Orton. Draft him as a lower-end WR2 in 2015 and expect a few duds over the course of the year.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory was given fewer carries last year to limit the chances of getting injured. The Jets have a new coaching staff this year, however, and Ivory has been used more this offseason, particularly in the passing game.
Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine Ivory being too much more involved in the passing game as he's not the best pass-catching running back in league. Ivory's specialty is to ground and pound. Plus, the Jets have plenty of other running backs to use as receivers. If Ivory can stay healthy again this season, he should end up in RB2 territory.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall is signed through the 2017, which would put him at age 33. He has shown signs of wear, but he's still a very good WR2.

New York Jets LB Quinton Coples has been improving under head coach Todd Bowles. "He plays with very good violence," outside linebackers coach Mark Collins said. "He can set the edge in the run. He can finish plays in the run game. He can push the pocket. He can affect the quarterback. It doesn't mean he's always going to sack the quarterback, but he can affect the quarterback. I definitely think his arrow is pointing up."
