Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) isn't listed on the final Week 15 injury report. RB Bilal Powell (ankle) has been ruled out, while RB Ty Montgomery (foot, hip) is questionable. Bell should dominate backfield touches against the Ravens on Thursday night.

Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee) is listed as doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Ravens. He's averaged 5.3 targets per game this season, so his absence opens up a few extra looks for WRs Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder.

Jets TE Ryan Griffin (ankle) is out for Thursday night's game against the Ravens. Daniel Brown figures to serve as New York's lead TE but shouldn't be used as anything other than a flier in single-game DFS contests.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) put in a full practice on Tuesday. He's on track to return for Thursday night's game against the Ravens. The Jets figure to have trouble scoring in that one, but Bell's volume keeps him in the RB2 mix.

Jets HC Adam Gase said Monday that RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) is "pretty close to 100 percent." That puts him on track to return for Thursday night's game against the Ravens. Bell will be a volume-based RB2 in that tough spot.

Jets RB Bilal Powell suffered an ankle injury late in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. He went for an x-ray after the game, but HC Adam Gase didn't have an update on his status. Powell led the Le'Veon Bell-less backfield with 19 carries for 74 yards vs. Miami but will drop back off the fantasy radar assuming Bell is back from the flu next week.

Jets TE Ryan Griffin injured his ankle in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Dolphins and is officially doubtful to return. We'll update his status when we learn more.

The Jets have downgraded RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) to out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. That leaves the backfield to RBs Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery. Over the past 5 weeks, Powell has totaled 25 carries and 6 targets to Montgomery's 8 carries and 4 targets. We'd bet on Powell leading the way tomorrow, but there's no way to know for sure what the split will look like. There's at least upside vs. Miami's 28th-ranked RB defense.

Jets RB Le’Veon Bell (illness) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins after missing practice on Thursday and Friday. Players almost always play when on the injury report with illnesses — but HC Adam Gase said Friday that he’s “unsure” if Bell will be available vs. Miami. We’ll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. Bell’s absence would leave the Jets with a committee backfield of Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery.

Jets HC Adam Gase said Friday morning that he's "unsure" if RB Le'Veon Bell will play against the Dolphins this weekend. Bell missed Thursday's practice with an illness and will be sidelined again on Friday. Players almost always play through illnesses -- but it's possible that Bell is dealing with something more serious. We'll get another update on his status this afternoon. His absence would leave the Jets with RBs Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery.

Jets HC Adam Gase said Monday that S Jamal Adams "is a legit week-to-week" with his sprained left ankle, according to the Washington Post. "I am going to lean on him a lot too as far as how he feels," Gase said. "We want to make sure that he is good to go before we put him back out there." Adams seems likely to miss Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The Jets then play on Thursday night in Week 15. We'll watch for updates on his status later this week.

Jets S Jamal Adams hurt his left foot in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Adams didn't leave the game, but he said afterward that he "couldn't perform" like himself and that he "was in a lot of pain," according to the New York Daily News. We'll see if the injury endangers Adams' Week 14 availability.

Jets QB Sam Darnold suffered a left foot injury late in the loss to the Bengals but never exited the game. Neither Darnold nor HC Adam Gase sounded concerned afterward. "He just took some shots on the last drive,” Gase said. “He kind of got torqued a little bit, but he should be all right.” We’ll keep an eye on Darnold this coming week.

Jets CB Darryl Roberts (calf) and DE Henry Anderson (shoulder) are active for today's game against the Bengals. The matchup gives upside to Anderson for deep IDP leagues. He's still a low-floor option. Roberts returns after losing 3 games to a calf injury. He remained limited in practice all week, and the Jets improved in coverage with an altered CB lineup against the Raiders last Sunday. It's not clear whether Roberts will regain his starting gig. You should avoid him in IDP lineups this week.

Jets ILB Neville Hewitt (neck) is active for today's game against the Raiders, as expected. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups.

The Jets have signed TE Ryan Griffin to a 3-year extension worth up to $10.8 million with "reachable" incentives, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. The 29-year-old Griffin has turned it on since QB Sam Darnold returned and has averaged 4 catches, 55.8 yards and 0.8 TDs over his past 4 games. Griffin previously spent 6 seasons with the Texans, including a 50-catch 2016. Griffin's new contract damages the immediate outlook for 2nd-year TE Chris Herndon, who lost this season to suspension and then injury. It's tough to get excited about either player in dynasty right now. The new deal certainly confirms Griffin's entrenched role in the offense for the rest of this season, though.

Jets CB Darryl Roberts (calf) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He has missed the past 2 weeks with his calf injury. ILB Neville Hewitt (neck) is questionable for the game, but he returned to full playing time in Week 11 and should be good to go.

Jets LBs Neville Hewitt (neck, knee) and Brandon Copeland (hip) are active for today's game against Washington. Hewitt missed the past 4 games with his injury but should see full-time snaps. Copeland likely returns to a backup role, with James Burgess the expected starter next to Hewitt.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (ribs, knee, illness) is active for today’s game against the Redskins. He’s obviously not at 100% but was never in danger of missing this one. He should play his usual high-volume role today.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness, ribs, knee) is expected to play today against Washington. He has been an inefficient producer for most of the season and might be hampered further by these issues, but you'll need to be pretty strong at RB to be able to sit Bell in season-long fantasy.
