Jets RB Michael Carter was the closest thing to an offensive bright spot on a night that saw the team total just 227 yards and pull its 1st-round QB for the 2nd time this season. Carter led the team with 5 catches and 44 yards, though he added just 6 rushing yards on 2 carries. RB Zonovan Knight rushed 6 times for minus-2 and caught his lone target for 15 yards. RB Ty Johnson worked in for 7 yards on 2 carries. WR Garrett Wilson led the team with 9 targets but managed just 4 catches for 30 yards. Practice-squad QB Chris Streveler entered in the 2nd half and wound up leading the team in rushing (54 yards). We'll see who's piloting this offense for a Week 17 trip to Seattle. That matchup is currently battling Houston for friendliest in the league to RB scoring, according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed.

At the beginning of Thursday, Chris Streveler wasn't even on the Jets' active roster. By the end of the night, he was running the offense. The team pulled QB Zach Wilson in the 2nd half of Thursday night's loss to the Jaguars after watching him complete 9 of 18 throws or 92 yards and an INT. Streveler closed out the game with 90 more yards (but no turnovers) on 10-of-15 passing and accounted for most of the team's rushing yardage. The former Cardinals QB ran 9 times for 54 yards. We'll see who's behind center for the Jets in a Week 17 trip to Seattle. We'd bet HC Robert Saleh is currently praying to the nearest deity that Mike White will be healthy enough to play.

Jets QB Zach Wilson was benched in favor of QB Chris Streveler in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars. Wilson completed just 9 of 18 passes for 92 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT against a bad Jacksonville defense (albeit in less-than-ideal conditions). We'd be surprised if Wilson found his way back onto the field again this season. We'll see if QB Mike White can get cleared for Week 17. If not, Streveler and QB Joe Flacco are options.

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 DT Quinnen Williams (calf) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Jaguars. See where he lands in the Week 16 DL Rankings.

Jets RB Zonovan Knight (ankle) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Jaguars. He was listed as questionable but put in a full week of practice, so we’re not expecting the ankle to be much of an issue. RB James Robinson is a healthy scratch again for Jacksonville, also suggesting confidence in Knight’s health.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid suggested Thursday that WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) won't be ready to play vs. the Seahawks this weekend. "I'm not sure he's where he need to be," Reid said. We'll see if Hardman can make it back for Week 17. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Justin Watson have been running as Kansas City's top 3 WRs lately.

Jets RB Zonovan Knight (ankle) practiced fully on Wednesday. The rookie is officially listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars but is expected to play. Knight ranks as PFF's 17th highest-graded running back (min. 10 attempts) since finding playing time in Week 12. The Jaguars' defense ranks as the 12th-best matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs this season. Consider Knight a quality RB3/flex option in fantasy lineups.

Jets WR Corey Davis (concussion) practiced fully again on Wednesday and does not carry an injury designation ahead of Week 16 vs. the Jaguars. Teammates Denzel Mims (concussion) and Jeff Smith (knee) did not practice and have ultimately been ruled out. While the Jaguars rank as the 3rd-easiest matchup in fantasy points allowed to WRs, the inconsistencies of QB Zach Wilson make Davis a risky play. Fantasy managers should sit Davis outside of the deepest of leagues.

Thursday Night Football is just around the corner, and the Jets WR corps has a mixed bag of injuries to sort through. Corey Davis (concussion) upgraded to a full participant in practice on Tuesday after being limited on Monday. However, Denzel Mims (concussion) and Jeff Smith (knee) did not practice two days in a row to open the week. Today's injury report will shed light on who QB Zach Wilson will have to throw to in tomorrow's game vs. the Jaguars. Stay tuned.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) has a “good chance” of being available for Week 16 vs. the Seahawks according to Chiefs HC Andy Reid. Hardman has not played since being placed on IR following Week 9 vs. the Titans. The game against the Seahawks is on Saturday, so today’s news will provide some important clarity on this front.

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.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 22 of 30 attempts for 229 yards with 1 TD and INT apiece in Sunday night's win vs. the Rams. Week 15 marks the 3rd consecutive game in which the former MVP didn't clear 15 points in 4-point per passing touchdowns leagues. Fantasy managers advancing in the playoffs can feel better about Rodgers' odds in next week's matchup against a Dolphins defense that ranks 4th-easiest in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs. Consider Rodgers a streaming option in 1QB leagues and a quality QB2 in superflex formats.

The Jets listed DT Quinnen Williams (calf) as a limited participant for Monday's practice. That's notable because Williams missed Sunday's loss to the Lions after sitting out practice all last week. We'll watch Williams' status leading up to the Thursday night meeting with the Jaguars.

Jets RB Zonovan Knight is not listed on the Week 16 injury report. HC Robert Saleh earlier in the day labeled Knight questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars with the ankle he banged up in the loss to the Lions, but he'll evidently be available.

Jets HC Robert Saleh said Monday that he's "very hopeful" WR Corey Davis (concussion) will be able to return for Thursday's game vs. the Jaguars. WR Denzel Mims figures to miss that one after sustaining a concussion in the loss to the Lions, so New York could really use Davis. We'll track his status over the next couple of days.

Jets HC Robert Saleh labeled RB Zonovan Knight questionable but "arrow up" for Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. Knight missed some time in yesterday's loss to the Lions with an ankle injury but eventually returned. We'll keep a close eye on his status over the next couple of days. If Knight can't play on Thursday, we'd likely see RB Michael Carter lead a committee alongside Ty Johnson and James Robinson.

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 RB Zonovan Knight led the team in rushing in Sunday's loss to the Lions, but he did so with just 13 carries for 23 yards. RB Michael Carter carried 4 times for 15 yards and caught his lone target for 16 yards. The Jets get a decent rushing matchup with the Jaguars in Week 16 but a terrific matchup at Seattle in Week 17. The Seahawks have been the league's most friendly to RB scoring by our adjusted fantasy points allowed.

Jets WR Denzel Mims was knocked out of Sunday's game vs. the Lions with a 1st-half concussion. WR Corey Davis is inactive with his own concussion, leaving the Jets with WRs Garrett Wilson, Elijah Moore, Braxton Berrios and Jeff Smith.
