ESPN's Colin Stephenson reports that Jets HC Todd Bowles doesn't seem optimistic for CB Darrelle Revis' chances to return Sunday after missing Week 12 with a concussion. Revis sat out practice Wednesday, and Bowles reportedly said he doesn't expect the star corner to get onto the field Thursday either. You should be starting Giants WR Odell Beckham in this matchup either way, but missing Revis would certainly hurt the Jets' pass D and help the Giants' lead wideout.

Jets DE Sheldon Richardson (hamstring) is probable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins after putting in full practices all week. He missed last Sunday's game at Houston but should be a full go this time around. That's good news for his IDP outlook and that of a team D that will miss CB Darrelle Revis (concussion).

Jets HC Todd Bowles said CB Darrelle Revis "wasn't feeling any better" Monday after leaving Sunday's game with a concussion, according to ESPN.com. Bowles added that he generally feels "pessimistic" for a player's chances of returning for the following game after suffering a concussion. We'll see how Revis progresses through the league protocol this week. It'll be tough to project his specific impact on Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins, however, as Miami sports no true #1 outside WR.

10:58am EDT 9/27/15

Jets CB Darrelle Revis is active for Sunday's clash with the Eagles despite a groin injury that had him questionable. He never really seemed in danger of missing the game. Revis isn't much of an IDP option, but his presence obviously helps a Jets team D with plenty of upside against the struggling Eagles.

CB Darrelle Revis has reached a deal with the Jets. Revis obviously upgrades any defense he joins in a big way. The Jets could still stand to upgrade their edge-rushing group, but the team D carries more fantasy intrigue than it did last week. Revis' skill as a cover man has hurt his IDP value for years. It will also, however, likely help the scoring of new teammate CB Buster Skrine.

The Patriots on Monday officially declined their 2015 option on CB Darrelle Revis, which would have paid the veteran $20 million. That move isn't surprising and doesn't necessarily mean he won't return to New England, but Revis will find no shortage of suitors on the open market. Even if he's not much of an IDP factor, a healthy Revis undeniably helps any defense he joins.

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports that the Patriots have reached a 1-year deal with CB Darrelle Revis.  It's no surprise that Revis took less than a day to find a new home, but we are a bit surprised that he settled for a 1-year pact so quickly.  Revis steps right in for another top-notch cover man, Aqib Talib, who found redemption in New England before landing a big contract in Denver on Tuesday.  This is a terrific pickup for the Patriots team D.  Revis won't climb too high in our 2014 IDP ranking, though.

As expected, the Buccaneers released CB Darrelle Revis on Wednesday.  The move obviously saves Tampa some money but also admits defeat on last year's trade.  The Bucs sent a 1st-round pick in last year's draft and a conditional pick that will be a 4th-rounder this May.  Revis will obviously land somewhere, but no team was apparently willing to pick up the remainder of his bloated contract.  Regardless of team, Revis won't stand prominently in our 2014 IDP rankings.

The Bucs will release CB Darrelle Revis by 4 p.m. Wednesday if they can't trade him, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.  If Revis remains on the roster past that deadline, Tampa Bay will owe him a $1.5 million roster bonus and must send the Jets a 3rd-round pick instead of a 4th-rounder.  It's a stunning turnaround just a year after the Bucs dealt a 1st-rounder for Revis and signed him to a huge contract.  Look for Revis to land somewhere quickly either way.

10:37am EST 12/1/13

As expected, Bucs CB Darrelle Revis (groin) is active against the Panthers today.  This doesn't change our fantasy football outlook for anyone involved.

Bucs CB Darrelle Revis (groin) will play against the Panthers today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.  Revis was unable to return to last week's game and only got in a limited practice on Friday this week, so it's tough to believe he'll be at 100%.  We're not moving Panthers WR Steve Smith down our Week 13 rankings.

Bucs HC Greg Schiano told NFL Network that the team plans to increase CB Darrelle Revis' participation this week.  “We’ll get him into the general practice population now, and get him doing some team stuff, just get him playing a little bit more,” Schiano said.  “He did a little 7-on-7 last week in the red area, we’ll give him some more, and just take it, add a little bit, see how he is the next day and add a little bit more.”  Schiano said that whether Revis plays in the 3rd preseason game will depend on his response to increased practice work.  The star CB certainly still appears on track to be ready for the opener.  That obviously helps the Tampa team defense for fantasy purposes and returns Revis to his boom/bust IDP status.  You still shouldn't get excited about Tampa's D/ST in your fantasy football league, though, because the pass rush projects to be among the NFL's worst once again.

Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis will be on the field with his new team when training camp begins next week.  It's not yet clear how fully he'll participate right away coming off last year's ACL tear.  But the fact that he'll practice at all in July certainly puts him on track to open the regular season in the starting lineup.  Obviously, that's great news for the Tampa Bay pass defense.  Revis also carries big-play upside for IDP owners, though he's really only useful if your league downplays tackle scoring or requires CBs.  We'll be curious to see if opponents test him more often early to see if Revis' repaired knee is all the way back.


The Jets used their 1st selection -- 9th overall -- to grab CB Dee Milliner.  The Alabama alum is working back from a shoulder injury and endured multiple surgeries in his college career.  He still entered the draft as a top-notch cover man.  Milliner should be the favorite to claim CB Darrelle Revis' old job right away.  Playing across from the talented Antonio Cromartie could help Milliner draw a few more targets.  NFL Network's Mike Mayock question's his hands, though, which could hurt IDP value.

6:20pm EDT 4/21/13

It's official.  The Jets have traded CB Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay for the 13th pick in this year's draft and a conditional 2014 selection.  ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that pick begins as a 4th-rounder but could turn into a 3rd-rounder.  The price seems a little cheap for a player many rank as the best in the league.  The Bucs have also agreed to a 6-year deal.  According to Gary Myers of the New York Daily News, the contract calls for $1.5 million in roster bonus and $1.5 million in workout bonus annually with $13 million in base salary each year.  None of the years is guaranteed.  It looks like the player and team will have a decision to make every spring.  Revis' addition seriously boosts the Buccaneers' defensive outlook and helps the IDP stock of CB Eric Wright, or whoever starts on the other side.  The Jets, meanwhile, get to continue the rebuilding effort with a pair of top-13 picks this season.  We'll take a look at the full impact on the Draft Sharks blog later today.

A deal that will send All-Pro CB Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay is nearing completion. The Bucs and Jets have reportedly agreed on compensation, while the Bucs and Revis are close on the terms of a new contract. Revis is on his way to Tampa for a physical, which sounds like the last hurdle to clear. The Jets are expected to receive the 13th overall pick in this week’s draft – plus a couple mid-rounders either this year or next. It’ll arm the Jets with 3 of the first 39 picks this year. But it’ll cost them one of the best players in the game. The Jets are in full rebuild mode under new GM John Idzik. The Bucs, meanwhile, are gambling on a guy coming off a torn ACL. But Revis is only 27 years old and was easily the best CB in the game before that injury. In Revis, FS Dashon Goldon and SS Mark Barron, Tampa will trot out one of the best secondaries in the league.

ESPN New York reports that Jets CB Darrelle Revis has been cleared to run "without restrictions."  An MRI reportedly confirmed that Revis is ahead of schedule in his recovery from last season's ACL tear.  The Jets have also reportedly put trade talks with the Bucs on hold.  It remains a goofy situation that we still expect to wind up with the star corner moving south.  For fantasy purposes, Revis delivers occasional big games in IDP formats that score pass breakups.  But opponents don't throw at him enough to make him a consistent factor.

Pro Football Talk reports that Jets-Buccaneers trade talks have included the possibility of QB Mark Sanchez heading to Tampa Bay.  The Jets would surely love to unload a contract that didn't even look good when Sanchez signed it before last season.  The Bucs don't seem to have bought completely into QB Josh Freeman, but it's not clear whether Sanchez would compete for the starting job upon arrival.  Trading Sanchez would leave the Jets with David Garrard, Tim Tebow and Greg McElroy consituting the QB depth chart.  CB Darrelle Revis, of course, remains the centerpiece of any deal.  And the trade would likely have to include Tampa's 1st-round pick this year (13th overall).  If they trade Sanchez, the Jets would look like a near-lock to draft another passer early in the NFL Draft later this month.

The Jets confirmed this morning that CB Darrelle Revis tore his left ACL in Sunday's OT win at Miami. Former 1st-round pick Kyle Wilson steps into the starting lineup and might just prove a better fantasy option than the far-more-talented Revis. Opponents figure to actually throw at Wilson. In his Week 2 start in place of an injured Revis (concussion), Wilson was thrown at 5 times and allowed completions on every one, according to Pro Football Focus. That will only encourage other teams to look his way in coverage. Wilson also brings big-play ability, though. He picked off 11 passes over 4 seasons at Boise State and returned 2 of them for TDs. He also posted a 12.6-yard career punt-return average, including 3 TD returns his junior year. If he continues to prove beatable in coverage -- but not bad enough to be replaced in the lineup -- Wilson could put together a DeAngelo Hall-type (valuable) IDP profile.
