Blake Cashman Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Jets LB Blake Cashman (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Dolphins. He has been out since Week 7 and entered the day questionable. Cashman could be ready to regain the starting spot that Harvey Langi has occupied recently. Cashman is tough to trust in IDP lineups right away, though. He has played just 3 total defensive snaps on the year.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets are "working toward a trade" that would send LB Avery Williamson to the Steelers. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirmed the report. The NFL trade deadline looms Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET, so we'll see whether the move gets finalized. If it does, Williamson would likely take over the ILB spot vacated by Devin Bush's injury, which Robert Spillane has filled the past 2 weeks. The Jets figure to go back to Blake Cashman to fill in Williamson's spot, as soon as Cashman is ready. He was inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs with a hamstring injury.

Update: The deal will be Williamson and a 2022 seventh-rounder for a 2022 fifth-rounder, according to The MMQB's Albert Breer.

Jets LB Blake Cashman left in the 1st quarter of Sunday's loss to the Bills after suffering a groin injury. He started next to Neville Hewitt at ILB with Avery Williamson out but only made it through 3 snaps. Harvey Langi filled in the rest of the way, managing 6 tackles and a pass breakup among 83 snaps. We'll see about Williamson's status heading into Week 2.

Jets ILB C.J. Mosley has opted out for the upcoming season, according to multiple reports. That removes the Jets' big free-agent addition from last offseason for the 2nd straight year. Mosley missed basically all of 2019 after suffering a groin injury in the 1st half of the opener. The defense does get back ILB Avery Williamson from the ACL tear that cost him last season. Neville Hewitt, Blake Cashman and offseason addition Patrick Onwuasor figure to compete for Mosley's role. Williamson gets a big boost to his fantasy ceiling. He finished top 15 among fantasy LBs in 2018 and certainly has that potential again.

Jets LB Neville Hewitt (neck) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The team will also miss LB Blake Cashman, who landed on IR this week with a shoulder injury. With those 2 out, plus LBs Avery Williamson and Albert McClellan on IR and C.J. Mosley out at least another month, James Burgess will start against Miami. The Jets also signed LB Zach Brown, who got dumped by the Eagles after their Week 6 loss at Minnesota. We've added Burgess to the Week 9 IDP rankings.

Jets HC Adam Gase said Monday that ILB C.J. Mosley will miss the next 5-6 weeks with his groin injury, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. The report added, "No surgery for now." That implies surgery remains an option. If the Jets continue to disappoint over the next 5-6 weeks, then they and Mosley might decide it's not worth bringing him back this season. Mosley looks droppable for most redraft IDP leagues. Rookie Blake Cashman should maintain his starting role for at least those 5-6 weeks. ILB Neville Hewitt (neck, knee) missed Week 8 but took part in limited practices all last week and seems to be nearing a return. We'll watch his status leading up to Sunday's visit to Miami.

The Jets have ruled ILB C.J. Mosley (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Fellow ILB Neville Hewitt (neck) is doubtful for the game. The Jets will also be without backup ILB Albert McClellan, who has been ruled out with a concussion. Rookie Blake Cashman will start, and OLB Brandon Copeland will slide in to start next to him, according to the New York Post. Cashman is usable in IDP lineups.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley left Monday night's loss to the Patriots in the 4th quarter, still feeling the effects of his Week 1 groin injury. And then he wasn't on the field for Wednesday's practice. "The doctors are doing a really deep dive, trying to figure out where things are coming from," HC Adam Gase said before practice, according to the team website. "It might just be more than a groin. We're just trying to figure all that stuff out." It doesn't sound like we should count on Mosley being available for Week 8. That would mean another start for rookie Blake Cashman -- and maybe more. Neville Hewitt (neck, knee), who missed Monday night's game, returned to a limited workout Wednesday. We'll see if Hewitt can make it back to face Jacksonville on Sunday.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He still has yet to even return to practice since his Week 1 groin injury. That means another start for Blake Cashman. The rookie saw his playing time slip to 76% of the snaps. Cashman can still be a tackle option in deeper leagues but is nothing special as an IDP.
