New York Jets Fantasy Football News 2019

Jets ILB Neville Hewitt is doubtful once again for Sunday's game against the Jets. Hewitt missed the past 3 contests and has been putting in limited practices for a while. In his absence, James Burgess and Brandon Copeland figure to start again. Both guys played 100% of the snaps in last week's loss to the Dolphins. CB Darryl Roberts is also doubtful with a calf injury he suffered during practice this week.

Jets CB Darryl Roberts suffered a non-contact calf injury in practice Wednesday. He sat out Thursday's workout. "I'm not really sure his availability for the game," HC Adam Gase said Thursday, according to the New York Post. "I just know those are tough ones to come back from that fast." We've removed Roberts from the Week 10 DB rankings. We'll see how things progress.

Jets LB Neville Hewitt (neck) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The team will also miss LB Blake Cashman, who landed on IR this week with a shoulder injury. With those 2 out, plus LBs Avery Williamson and Albert McClellan on IR and C.J. Mosley out at least another month, James Burgess will start against Miami. The Jets also signed LB Zach Brown, who got dumped by the Eagles after their Week 6 loss at Minnesota. We've added Burgess to the Week 9 IDP rankings.

Jets HC Adam Gase said Monday that ILB C.J. Mosley will miss the next 5-6 weeks with his groin injury, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. The report added, "No surgery for now." That implies surgery remains an option. If the Jets continue to disappoint over the next 5-6 weeks, then they and Mosley might decide it's not worth bringing him back this season. Mosley looks droppable for most redraft IDP leagues. Rookie Blake Cashman should maintain his starting role for at least those 5-6 weeks. ILB Neville Hewitt (neck, knee) missed Week 8 but took part in limited practices all last week and seems to be nearing a return. We'll watch his status leading up to Sunday's visit to Miami.

The Jets on Monday traded DE Leonard Williams to the Giants for a 2020 third-round pick plus a 2021 fifth-rounder that becomes a 4th-rounder if the Giants extend Williams, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Williams has traditionally been a better real-life player than fantasy producer. We'll see if moving to the Giants' defense can improve his sack numbers at all. The Giants' edge OLBs have delivered on the sack front so far this season, which could help. Back with the Jets, Folorunso Fatukasi and Kyle Phillips look like the prime candidates for playing-time boosts.

The Jets have ruled ILB C.J. Mosley (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Fellow ILB Neville Hewitt (neck) is doubtful for the game. The Jets will also be without backup ILB Albert McClellan, who has been ruled out with a concussion. Rookie Blake Cashman will start, and OLB Brandon Copeland will slide in to start next to him, according to the New York Post. Cashman is usable in IDP lineups.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley left Monday night's loss to the Patriots in the 4th quarter, still feeling the effects of his Week 1 groin injury. And then he wasn't on the field for Wednesday's practice. "The doctors are doing a really deep dive, trying to figure out where things are coming from," HC Adam Gase said before practice, according to the team website. "It might just be more than a groin. We're just trying to figure all that stuff out." It doesn't sound like we should count on Mosley being available for Week 8. That would mean another start for rookie Blake Cashman -- and maybe more. Neville Hewitt (neck, knee), who missed Monday night's game, returned to a limited workout Wednesday. We'll see if Hewitt can make it back to face Jacksonville on Sunday.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley is active for tonight's game against the Patriots. He has been out since leaving the Week 1 loss to the Bills with a groin injury. Mosley returns to a lineup that will not include fellow ILB Neville Hewitt, who is out with neck and knee injuries.

Jets LB Neville Hewitt sat out Thursday's practice, listed with both neck and knee ailments. Both injuries are new. Hewitt left Sunday's win over the Cowboys for a stretch but returned to finish the game. We'll see about his status heading toward Monday night's clash with the Patriots.

The Jets officially listed LB C.J. Mosley as not participating in practice Thursday. But the veteran LB took part in individual drills, according to multiple reports. Afterward, per The Associated Press, he declared: "I'm playing Monday night. Unless I get hurt or something, I'm playing." Mosley hasn't hit the field since leaving Week 1 with a groin injury. Returning Monday night would pit him against a Patriots offense that has been a tackle-heavy top-10 scoring matchup for fantasy LBs so far. We'll continue to watch Mosley's participation through the weekend to gauge the risk for IDP lineups.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He still has yet to even return to practice since his Week 1 groin injury. That means another start for Blake Cashman. The rookie saw his playing time slip to 76% of the snaps. Cashman can still be a tackle option in deeper leagues but is nothing special as an IDP.

As expected, Jets LB C.J. Mosley is inactive for today's game against the Eagles. He entered doubtful with the groin injury that also cost him the previous 2 contests. LB Blake Cashman fills in again. Rookie DT Quinnen Williams is active after missing the past 2 games with an ankle injury. He's not a real IDP option.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Mosley still has yet to practice since suffering his groin injury in Week 1, so it's surprising that the team didn't just rule him out. You certainly shouldn't expect to have Mosley available for your IDP lineup.
