New York Jets RB Chris Ivory may get more playing time, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ivory and Chris Johnson both had 10 carries against the Chicago Bears in Week 3, but Ivory saw more action in the passing game.
Fantasy Tip: Ivory has impressed so far this year and was much more productive in the passing game than Johnson in Week 3, catching four passes for 52 yards. Ivory may be worth at least a flex start going forward.

Updating previous reports, New York Jets QB Geno Smith remains the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Rex Ryan. "Everybody is behind Geno. He's our quarterback and our football team believes in him," Ryan said.
Fantasy Tip: A disastrous performance in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions could quickly change the team's tune. Smith will cost you $5,300 at FantasyScore this week, but there are better options to be had at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Decker's injury and progress are definitely worth monitoring throughout the week. It might be best to keep him out of your starting lineup, however, if only for a week.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick could be more involved in the offense moving forward, as QB Geno Smith has five turnovers in the first three games. "I'm never going to say no because I learned that from (the media)," head coach Rex Ryan said. However, Ryan still supports Smith and thinks he'll be fine. Smith looks more comfortable in offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg's system, but the results haven't followed.
Fantasy Tip: Smith would probably need a few more poor performances for a change to be made. Smith's up and down performances continue to make him a shaky weekly fantasy play.

New York Jets QB Geno Smith didn't take a step back in his development in the Week 3 loss to the Chicago Bears Monday, Sept. 22, according to head coach Rex Ryan. "Guys, this ain't the same quarterback as he was at the beginning of last year, I don't care what people say," Ryan said. "Did he make a mistake? Absolutely. Their quarterback made a mistake but the difference was, they caught the ball and we didn't. ... I feel good about this football team and I feel good about Geno Smith."
Fantasy Tip: Smith was 26-for-43 for 316 yards, a touchdown and two costly interceptions - one for a touchdown and one in the red zone. Smith has talent, but he's been wildly inconsistent. He'll be a dice roll again in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions for $5,300 (10.6% of cap) at FantasyScore.

Updating previous reports, New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) said he didn't re-injure his hamstring Monday, Sept. 22, but it just wouldn't loosen up. He said he pulled himself from the game instead of risking further injury. "(I ran) a few plays and decided it was best to step aside and pull myself out. I gradually tightened up," Decker said. "It was to the point where it wasn't loosening up, and instead of doing something stupid and really hurting something down the road I decided to pull myself and give myself a chance."
Fantasy Tip: This gives Decker a chance to play in Week 4. However, the Detroit Lions have one of the best defenses in the NFL thus far. Decker ($6,700, 13.4% of your cap) is a huge gamble in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Decker's value is already limited by New York's below average passing offense, and a hamstring injury isn't going to help matters. Regardless of his Week 4 salary at FantasyScore, Decker could struggle to put up worthwhile numbers against a Detroit defense that has been one of the best in the NFL through three weeks.
