Shark Bites

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 TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) remained sidelined on Thursday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported last week that Herndon is unlikely to play against the Patriots on Monday night. We'll see if he's able to make his 2019 debut in Week 8.

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.

Jets TE Chris Herndon has a Grade 1 hamstring strain and is expected to miss Weeks 6 and 7, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a disappointing development for fantasy owners that had Herndon stashed over the first 5 weeks -- but we'd try to hang on to him. The talented 2nd-year TE still has a shot to emerge as a weekly fantasy starter at an ugly position.

Jets TE Chris Herndon won't practice on Wednesday after injuring his hamstring running routes on Friday, HC Adam Gase said. Gase called it "a legit hamstring," so it sounds like Herndon is in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Cowboys. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow, but fantasy owners should be making other plans for Week 6.

Jets QB Sam Darnold (mono) has been cleared to play, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. So he'll return for Sunday's game against the Cowboys after missing the last 3 games and 4 weeks. It's obviously a huge boost to a Jets passing game that had been forced to turn to QB Luke Falk. Darnold's return puts WRs Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder back on the fantasy radar, although we'd still try to take a wait-and-see approach with this passing game for now.

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 WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is "likely" to play against the Eagles on Sunday, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. Thomas is officially listed as questionable after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. He should slide in as New York's #3 WR but isn't a fantasy option with Luke Falk under center.

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.

The Jets have ruled QB Sam Darnold out for Sunday's game against the Eagles. He reportedly took plenty of practice reps this week, but the swelling in his spleen has not yet decreased to the point where it's safe for him to return to contact. That means another Luke Falk start for the Jets and a tremendous fantasy matchup for the Eagles' team defense.

Jets QB Sam Darnold (mono) remained limited in Thursday's practice. "It's a tough thing because you want to stay safe," Darnold said afterward. "I want to make sure I'm safe out there and I'm not gonna die." We're not expecting Darnold to play against the Eagles this weekend, leaving Luke Falk under center again.

Jets QB Sam Darnold (mono) was officially limited in Wednesday's practice. Last we heard, he still hadn't been cleared for contact. Consider Darnold no better than 50/50 to return for this weekend's game against the Eagles.

Jets QB Sam Darnold (mono) has been cleared for non-contact drills, HC Adam Gase said Monday. "Not quite the all-clear they were hoping for," Ian Rapoport tweets. It sounds like Darnold is still iffy to be ready for this weekend's game against the Eagles. We'll continue to monitor his progress.

Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. That leaves Josh Bellamy as the #3 WR. He’s obviously not a fantasy option.

The Jets have ruled LB C.J. Mosley out for Week 3. He remained out of practice all week with the groin injury he suffered in the opener. Mosley's absence raises the tackle ceiling for fellow ILB Neville Hewitt.

Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. He missed practice all week and won’t play. Josh Bellamy served as the Jets’ #3 WR when DT exited last week but obviously isn’t a fantasy option.

Jets QB Sam Darnold (mono) said Wednesday that he has "full confidence" that he'll be back for Week 5 against the Eagles. That'd be on the short end of the original timetable for his return. "I'm not going to promise anything because I don't know exactly where this mono thing is going," Darnold admitted. "But that's the goal that the doctors have set, and that's the goal that I have set the game to be back for."

Jets HC Adam Gase labeled WR Demaryius Thomas "week to week" after he aggravated his hamstring injury in Monday night's loss to the Browns. Between the hammy and the Jets' mess at QB, there's no reason to roster DT right now.

Jets HC Adam Gase announced that QB Trevor Siemian needs surgery on the ankle he hurt in Monday night's loss to the Browns and will miss the rest of the season. So the Jets will turn to QB #3, Luke Falk, for as long as Sam Darnold remains out with his mono. Falk completed 20 of 25 passes for 198 yards in relief of Siemian on Monday -- but most of that came with Cleveland playing soft defense with a big lead late in the game. Falk isn't a fantasy option, and you should try to avoid the Jets passing game until Darnold returns.
