New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles will not be heavily involved in the offense despite uncertainty at the quarterback position. "I know what's going on and I trust Chan completely. I know the plays we run and I know what everybody is supposed to do, right or wrong. I understand busted assignments and things like that. I'm up to speed because I've been in the offense a year as well."

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has received multiple offers to choose between from the New York Jets. The Jets have offered a three-year, $24 million deal with $15 million guaranteed and at least one other offer.
Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick was great last season, but he's 33 and had never come close to last season's showing before. With a dearth of quarterbacks in the low-end QB1 mix on the cusp, you shouldn't take him as anything more than a QB2.

New York Jets QB Geno Smith remains in line to start with the contract impasse between the organization and free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Head coach Todd Bowles said he is confident in Smith as the starter. "I think Geno can be a good starter, but he's got to prove it in training camp like everybody else," Bowles said. "It's not just about the quarterback position. You got to have a team around that position to play ball, but he's been in the system a year. He has a better grasp of it going into training camp and we'll see what he does."
Fantasy Tip: Smith has completed 57.9 percent of his 852 career pass attempts for 5,836 yards, 27 touchdowns and 36 interceptions. His first full season was a train wreck, but his 2014 wasn't all that bad. He also has that dual-threat dimension to make him a really, really poor man's Cam Newton when he is under center. If he hangs onto the starting job he is a Top 25 fantasy option at his position.

New York Jets WR Devin Smith (knee) is expected to begin the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. If he does start on the PUP list, he will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season.
Fantasy Tip: Quincy Enunwa seems to be the favorite to be the No. 3 wide receiver with Smith ailing. Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker will see most of the targets, though, so Enunwa should only be considered as a deep flier in later rounds. Smith can be avoided altogether if he does indeed start the season on the PUP list.

Fantasy Tip: It's to be expected that a running back at Forte's age and with Forte's workload wouldn't be a bellcow anymore. He's still the Jets' top option at the position, though, and should be viewed as a high-end RB2.

New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa currently has the inside track on being the No. 3 wide receiver. He will battle with WRs Kenbrell Thompkins, Jalin Marshall and Devin Smith (knee) for roster spots and playing time behind WRs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
Fantasy Tip: Marshall and Decker are both viable No. 2 receivers for your fantasy squad and also provide a reliable floor. There's a tremendous falloff after them, though. Additionally, there isn't a lot of fantasy value for the third receiver in the passing game, especially if tight end Jace Amaro reestablishes himself as a pass catcher. At this point, Enunwa and Thompkins are potential late-round fliers in deep leagues, but they are likely best left to the waiver wire. Marshall and Smith don't currently move the fantasy needle.

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (leg) said he expects to be ready for the start of the regular season but is not sure when he will be able to practice during training camp. He said the rehab from his broken leg is going well and that he is running four times a week.

New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson will receive his normal snaps during training camp even though he has been suspended for the first game of the 2016 season. Richardson was limited during training camp last season and said his conditioning was an issue after he served a four-game suspension.

New York Jets RBs Zac Stacy (leg) and Khiry Robinson (leg) will compete for the No. 3 running back job during training camp, but Robinson may have an edge because the team does not believe he has reached his full potential yet.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the preseason to see if Stacy or Robinson will win the job. Whoever wins the competition likely will receive limited playing time during the season and should not be a fantasy option.

New York Jets TE Jace Amaro is the projected starter for the Jets after he missed all of last year with a shoulder injury. He has worked hard on his blocking and believes he's improved in that area. However, he must earn the trust of offensive coordinator Chan Gailey and head coach Todd Bowles. The Jets tight ends combined for just eight catches on 23 targets in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Kellen Davis became the starter last year for lack of better options, and he had just three catches for 18 yards and a score. Amaro is the better pass-catcher and should be utilized more often, but with the QB spot still unsettled, there's not much to like here. Leave Amaro undrafted.

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (leg) said he will be ready for the season opener but can't predict when he'll be available in training camp. He is recovering from a broken right leg suffered in the season finale in 2015.
