New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said he is feeling good after he dealt with various injuries during the 2014 season. "I really feel like I'm better now than I've ever been," Marshall said. "There's the physical part, feeling healthy. … Now I'm starting to see the game differently being older and having a lot of experience. 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 likely will be the team's No. 1 receiver this upcoming season and could lead the team in receptions. Marshall may not be one of the top fantasy receivers at this point but could still be an option in the early to middle rounds of drafts.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Geno Smith is currently working as the starter, according to Jets head coach Todd Bowles Wednesday, May 27. However, Smith will face competition during the summer. The job is Smith's to lose, per Bowles.
Fantasy Tip: This is slightly different than the comments made by Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey last week, but it makes perfectly good sense. Smith will have to flop before handing over the keys to QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick or Bryce Petty. Smith has enough talent around him to warrant occasional fantasy spot starts when the matchup is right.

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 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.
