Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Bears. New York is down to Jermaine Kearse, Andre Roberts, Charone Peake and the newly signed Rishard Matthews atop the WR depth chart.
Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle) didn't practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bears. With WR Quincy Enunwa (ankle) also out, the Jets are down to Jermaine Kearse, Andre Roberts, Charone Peake and the newly signed Rishard Matthews. Kearse is the "best" fantasy bet, but try to avoid the situation.
The Jets have placed WR Quincy Enunwa (neck) on IR, ending his 2017 season. We still don't know much about the neck injury that he dealt with this spring and evidently aggravated on Sunday. Enunwa leaves behind inarguably the worst WR corps in the league. Robby Anderson is the best guess to lead the group in targets -- only because the rest of the group reads: Marquess Wilson, ArDarius Stewart, Chad Hansen, Charone Peake. We'll see who emerges from the ragtag bunch, but Jets WRs won't be a source of much fantasy goodness this season. Enunwa's injury does boost the target projections for RBs Bilal Powell and Matt Forte -- as well as sleeper TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
Update: HC Todd Bowles said Monday afternoon that Enunwa has a bulging disk in his neck and is expected to be out 6-9 months. It's a big blow to a guy who's set to hit free agency next offseason.
The Jets have informed WR Eric Decker that he'll be traded or released this week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The move will save the rebuilding Jets a little over $7 million this season. It'll also see them lose their only proven pass-catcher. New York's WR depth chart now reads: Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson, ArDarius Stewart, Chad Hansen and Charone Peake. That group will try to catch passes from some combination of Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg. God speed, Jets fans. Decker, meanwhile, should find a new job relatively quickly. And it figures to be in a spot much more conducive to fantasy production.
The Jets added WR Charone Peake in the 7th round of the 2016 draft. Peake was limited by injuries and a loaded Clemson WR corps through his first 4 seasons but broke out for a 50-716-5 line this past year. He goes 6'2, 209 pounds and clocked a 4.45-second 40 time at the Combine. Peake joins a Jets WR corps led by Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, but OC Chan Gailey runs a bunch of 3- and 4-WR sets. Peake will compete for snaps with Devin Smith and Quincy Enunwa.
