The Jets have ruled out S Calvin Pryor (ankle) for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Marcus Williams should start in his place for the 2nd straight week. He didn't do much (4 tackles) against Oakland and shouldn't garner much IDP consideration. The swap doesn't impact the team D, as Pryor has continued to provide nothing special in the Jets' secondary in his 2nd season.
The Jets have ruled S Calvin Pryor (ankle) out for Sunday's game at Oakland after he missed practice all week. That's no big loss for IDP owners, as Pryor hasn't delivered big tackle numbers or big plays in 2015. Feel free to drop him for help at DB or elsewhere.
The Jets watched starting defenders S Calvin Pryor (bruised knee), LB David Harris (quad) and DE Leonard Williams (ankle sprain) leave Sunday's win over Miami with injuries. According to ESPN New York, HC Todd Bowles said Monday that it's too early to know what their statuses will be after the Week 5 bye. We'll check back in on all 3 after the time off. At least none sounds like a longer-term issue. If Williams misses any time, that could allow DE Sheldon Richardson to step back into the lineup, now that his 4-game suspension is done.
Jets S Calvin Pryor, the team's 1st-round pick this May, played no snaps in Sunday's win over Pittsburgh. He said afterward, according to ESPN New York, that the team had planned to rotate him with Jaiquawn Jarrett. But Jarrett instead stayed in full time and delivered a huge performance: 10 tackles, 2 INTs, a sack and a forced fumble. Pryor also has reportedly been late for team meetings multiple times and failed to put enough effort into his off-field studies. It's not yet clear how much that factored into his absence against the Steelers, but HC Rex Ryan will probably have a tough time cutting Jarrett's playing time back down after his monster outing. Jarrett's obviously the better IDP option at this point, though the situation adds risk. We'll see how this plays out after the team's Week 11 bye.
Jets HC Rex Ryan benched DB Antonio Allen for the 2nd half of Sunday's loss at Kansas City. Allen has spent time at corner and safety this year for a struggling secondary, but Ryan said (per ESPN New York) he pulled him against the Chiefs because, "I wanted to stop somebody." The Jets also limited the snaps for rookie S Calvin Pryor after he initially left the game with a shoulder injury. Pryor returned but mostly just on special teams, while Jaiquawn Jarrett took over his safety role. Ryan didn't say anything after the game about that amounting to a benching. He did say that he was pleased with undrafted rookie CB Marcus Williams in his 1st start. Don't count on any of these guys in your IDP league.
Jets S Calvin Pryor returned to full action Monday, 9 days after suffering a concussion in practice. Pryor had returned to non-contact drills in recent days, but doctors cleared him for full contact Monday. HC Rex Ryan said, per ESPN New York, that Pryor might still play in Thursday night's preseason opener: "If he's cleared and he feels good, and he's not at risk, we'll throw
him out there some. It might not be with the (starters),
but he needs to get work. As soon as he's ready to go, we'll put him out
there." Barring any further physical setback, we still expect Pryor to start come Week 1.
Jets rookie S Calvin Pryor suffered a concussion Saturday during kick-return drills, Jets HC Rex Ryan told The Star-Ledger. Pryor didn't take the field Sunday, and the team has Sunday off. Pryor will have to pass through the league's concussion protocol before returning to the field. Assuming he can get past this issue, Pryor will remain an intriguing option in the 2014 IDP rankings.
Jets HC Rex Ryan couldn't help but gush over 1st-round S Calvin Pryor on Saturday. "It’s rare that it comes easy, and you can see it in there," Ryan said after a team workout, per The Star-Ledger. "The way he
communicates, just everything. He has really been everything that we’ve
wanted and then some. Really been impressed with him. I think he’d be
probably the No. 1 guy that jumps out at me (from rookie mini camp so
far).” Ryan said all of his top 3 safeties will play this season, but we're betting on starter reps for Pryor. He could deliver fantasy-starter value right away and will certainly appear in our 2014 IDP rankings.
The Jets nabbed Louisville S Calvin Pryor with the 18th pick of the NFL draft. Many draftniks publicly questioned Pryor's ability in deep coverage, but defensive guru Rex Ryan clearly believes in his all-around ability. Pryor stacks up as an early contender to be the top rookie defender in fantasy leagues. Look for him to land in starter range when our 2014 IDP rankings come out.
