Fantasy Tip: Kerley skipped OTAs for personal reasons, so it doesn't seem to be too big of a deal. He'll play behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker this year and could win the No. 3 wide receiver spot, but isn't fantasy relevant unless there's an injury.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory skipped OTAs for personal reasons, so it doesn't seem to be too big of a deal. He'll head into offseason activities as the Jets' starting running back and is in RB3 territory for now.

New York Jets DT Sheldon Richardson did not attend the team's fifth session of organized team activities Wednesday, May 27. Richardson also skipped the first two workouts, but attended the third and fourth sessions. OTAs are voluntary.

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said he feels like he's better now than he's ever been. "I feel great, and now I'm starting to see the game differently, being older and having a lot of experience," Marshall said. "So having all of that working for me, and going against those guys every single day, I'm excited about doing my job this year."
Fantasy Tip: Marshall has all the tools to be a WR1 in 2015. The only question mark will be at quarterback, where either Geno Smith or Ryan Fitzpatrick is likely to start. Marshall is still a WR1 candidate, but the quarterback situation could hinder his production a little bit.

New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson was present for organized team activities Thursday, May 21, after missing the two previous days. Head coach Todd Bowles said Richardson has missed around half of the offseason workouts.

New York Jets RB Stevan Ridley (knee) should be healthy enough for training camp as he continues to recover from knee surgery. Head coach Todd Bowles said Ridley is not ready for team drills, but participated in positional drills.
Fantasy Tip: Ridley is expected to be the No. 2 running back behind Chris Ivory once the season is underway. He'll be an important part of the Jets' running offense, and may steal some goal line carries, but isn't more than a low-end RB4.

New York Jets coach Todd Bowles plans to use a package with two tight ends, including TE Jeff Cumberland and TE Jace Amaro. Cumberland will be a traditional tight end and Amaro will line up in a halfback-style position.
Fantasy Tip: In this set, Amaro could be more explosive because he could run all over the field and cause havoc on defenses. Both players will be decent options, but Amaro could post good numbers.

New York Jets coach Todd Bowles said his team's running back situation may take until the preseason to sort out. RBs Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Zac Stacy, Stevan Ridley and Daryl Richardson all have experience at the position, but no one has broken out yet.
Fantasy Tip: Bowles said the team could keep as many as four backs, but it begs the question of which one to start. For now, this situation is too volatile, but be prepared to move one up your draft board if someone looks explosive in preseason games.

Fantasy Tip: This is somewhat of a surprise after the Jets signed Ryan Fitzpatrick this offseason, and taking into account the tumultuous start of Smith's career. Smith has all the tools he needs to be successful in his third year, particularly at wide receiver with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. He's still not starter worthy in fantasy leagues, however.

Updating an ongoing story, New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson's contract dispute with the organization doesn't appear to have a resolution in its near future. Jets owner Woody Johnson said any contract extension will be something that makes sense for both sides. At the NFL's owners meeting in San Francisco Tuesday, May 19, Johnson said, "If something works out that's agreeable to both sides, it'll get done. If not …"

New York Jets RBs Chris Ivory, Stevan Ridley, Zac Stacy and others could be busy this season, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said the reason he hired offensive coordinator Chan Gailey is because he has a track record of being able to run the ball, at least in his college coaching days. Bowles supposedly prefers a balanced, ball-control offense, which puts more of the onus on the running backs.
Fantasy Tip: Again, Ivory should see the majority of work out the backfield, but this figures to be more of a committee approach with how deep the Jets are in the backfield. Ivory could end up in RB3 territory while the rest of the running backs currently shouldn't be seen as more than flex options.
