The Jets are hiring Nathaniel Hackett as their new OC, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Hackett was a disaster as Denver's HC this past season but had a successful stint as Green Bay's OC the previous 3 years. The Packers finished middle of the pack in total yards and points in Hackett's 1st season but climbed into the top 10 in both categories in 2020 and 2021. Those teams, of course, were quarterbacked by Aaron Rodgers, who's a big fan of Hackett. This move was presumably made by the Jets at least in part to help their chances of luring Rodgers to New York.

The Seahawks haven't played particularly well overall on defense this season, but they have given WRs difficulty in fantasy football. Seattle stands as the worst matchup for the position by adjusted fantasy points allowed. No WR has reached 10 PPR points against the Seahawks since Week 13. No WR has reached 75 yards receiving against them since Week 7, and just 3 have gotten there all season. Rookie CB Tariq Woolen has been the biggest factor, limiting players to a 56.4% catch rate and 74.6 passer rating on balls thrown into his coverage, according to Pro Football Focus. The matchup doesn't come close to knocking Jets lead WR Garrett Wilson out of starter range in our Week 17 fantasy football rankings. But it's well worth noting for DFS lineup-building. And we wouldn't go chasing any other Jets wideouts. The difficult matchup for WRs combined with the league-best scoring matchup for TEs could also turn Jets TE Tyler Conklin into a Week 17 sleeper.

Jets QB Mike White (ribs) has been medically cleared and will start this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks, insider Brian Costello reports. White's return comes after QB Zach Wilson was so bad in Thursday night's loss to the Jaguars that he was benched for QB Chris Streveler. The news is a boost for all of New York's skill-position guys, particularly WR Garrett Wilson.

The forecast for tonight’s Jaguars-Jets game calls for light rain early, potentially getting heavier throughout the night. The bigger concern is the wind. We’re looking at sustained 15-20 mph winds with gusts of 30+ mph. It's ugly weather that figures to impact the passing and kicking games — while also possibly pushing both teams to run more than they would in better conditions. We’ve updated our Jaguars and Jets projections for the forecast.

Jets HC Robert Saleh confirmed on Tuesday that QB Zach Wilson will start Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars. QB Mike White (ribs) has still not been medically cleared. Wilson wound up compiling 317 yards and 2 TDs in last week's loss to the Lions -- but he completed just 51% of his passes, threw 1 INT and could have been picked off a few more times. Wilson remains a detriment to New York's offense. See where he and the Jets skill-position guys land in the Week 16 Rankings.

Jets QB Zach Wilson threw for 317 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's loss to the Lions. He completed just 18 of his 35 pass attempts (51.4%) and threw an INT. WR Garrett Wilson led the way with 9 targets, catching 4 for 98 yards. WR Elijah Moore finished 2nd in targets (7), catching 4 for 51 yards. WR Jeff Smith went 4-77 receiving on 5 targets. TE C.J. Uzomah snagged both of the team's TDs as his only 2 catches (on 2 targets). The Jets get upside matchups with the Jaguars and Seahawks the next 2 weeks. We'd still prefer not to trust Zach Wilson in fantasy football lineups, but they'll at least be good spots for his WRs.

Jets WR Corey Davis (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Lions. We'll see if he can get cleared for Week 16. Davis figures to be replaced on the outside by WR Denzel Mims, who isn't a viable fantasy play. WRs Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore have more target upside without Davis -- although both guys take a hit with Zach Wilson under center.

Jets WR Corey Davis (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He's not a good bet to play vs. the Lions this weekend, which is good news for WRs Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore.

WR Elijah Moore led the Jets in targets by himself Sunday for the 1st time all season. He caught 6 of his 10 looks for 60 yards. WR Garrett Wilson ranked 3rd in targets (7) but matched Moore for the catch lead and paced the team with 78 receiving yards. TE Tyler Conklin caught 5 of 8 targets for 28 yards. WR Denzel Mims added 3-35 receiving on 5 looks. The early departure of WR Corey Davis (concussion) helped Moore's opportunities. Davis is likely to miss at least 1 more game, based on the usual return time for concussions.

Jets WR Corey Davis suffered a concussion in the 1st quarter of today's game against the Bills. He'll miss the rest of the game and need to pass through the league protocol before returning. His absence is good news for the playing time of WRs Denzel Mims and Elijah Moore.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson racked up 162 yards on 8 catches in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. His target count (15) was helped by QB Mike White attempting 57 passes for the game. But Wilson still claimed a 26.3% share. WR Corey Davis ranked 2nd with 10 targets, catching 5 for 85 yards. TE Tyler Conklin tied RB Ty Johnson for 3rd with 7 targets. WR Elijah Moore caught only 2 of 6 targets for 7 yards. The Jets travel to Buffalo in Week 14.

Jets WR Corey Davis (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Bears. Davis should step back as a starting outside WR opposite Garrett Wilson, with Elijah Moore in the slot.

Jets WR Corey Davis (knee) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Bears. Davis should join Garrett Wilson as New York's outside WRs, with Elijah Moore in the slot.

Jets WRs combined for only 64 yards in an ugly Week 11 loss to New England. Zach Wilson went just 9 of 22 for 77 yards in one of the worst displays of QB play you’ll find all year. A tough matchup with New England didn’t help, but there was simply nothing positive to takeaway here. Denzel Mims (2-35) led the team in receiving, while Elijah Moore (2-17) remained a part-timer (54% snap share). Most disappointingly, Garrett Wilson registered only 2 catches for 12 yards on 3 targets. This unit will look to rebound Sunday against Chicago. We’ll see if Wilson gets the nod under center.

Jets HC Robert Saleh would not commit to QB Zach Wilson as his Week 12 starter on Monday. “We’re keeping everything on the table," Saleh said. The Jets had been winning in spite of Wilson -- but that ended in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, when Wilson went 9 of 22 for 77 yards. He's completed just 55.6% of his passes this season, averaging 6.8 yards per attempt with 4 TDs and 5 INTs. Saleh wouldn't say whether he'd go with QB Joe Flacco or QB Mike White if Wilson is benched. None of those guys should be in your Week 12 fantasy plans, but Flacco or White would be at least a slight boost for New York's skill-position players.

Jets WR Corey Davis (knee) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. It should be Garrett Wilson and Denzel Mims on the outside, with Elijah Moore in the slot. Wilson is the only Jets WR that should be in Week 11 fantasy lineups.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson gobbled up nearly all of his team's receiving production in Sunday's win over the Bills. He drew 36% of QB Zach Wilson's pass attempts (9 targets), caught 44.4% of his completions (8) and amassed 59.7% of the team's yardage (92). Wilson was polite enough to let RB James Robinson claim the only TD reception. Zach Wilson threw for just 154 yards overall, with no 2nd Jet exceeding 16 receiving yards. Robinson and C.J. Uzomah were the only other 2 Jets to catch multiple passes. WR Denzel Mims ranked 2nd behind Garrett Wilson in playing time and routes but caught just 1 of 4 targets. TE Tyler Conklin continued to play clearly ahead of Uzomah, especially as a receiver (24 routes to Uzomah's 10, according to Pro Football Focus). The Jets now get a Week 10 bye. Perhaps someone will reacquaint them with WR Elijah Moore during that time off. He actually ranked 3rd among Jets WRs in playing time Sunday but didn't garner a target.

Jets WR Corey Davis (knee) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Bills. HC Robert Saleh expects him back after the Week 10 bye. Garrett Wilson should again be New York's top WR this weekend. Denzel Mims operated as the #2 WR last week, with WR Elijah Moore playing just 10 snaps.
