What You Need to Know:
-Coleman appeared in only 8 games last season.
-He suffered a sprained knee in Week 2 that cost him 5 games. He re-injured the same knee in Week 8 and didn’t return until Week 13.
-Coleman missed 2 games during the 2019 season with an ankle sprain.
-Phased out down the stretch in 2020, Coleman totaled just 28 carries for 53 yards and 4 catches for 34 yards.
-Coleman signed a 1-year deal with the Jets in March. The deal includes only $400K guaranteed.
-In New York, he’s reunited with new HC Robert Saleh OC Mike LaFleur, who’s coached Coleman across 4 seasons (2 in Atlanta, 2 in San Francisco). LaFleur is a Shanahan disciple, so look for a lot of pre-snap motion and outside zone running to gain leverage on the defense.
-The system fit and familiarity is strong here. But the Jets snagged a potential Round 4 steal in UNC RB Michael Carter. A 4-year player, he’s pro-ready and brings excellent vision and agility.
-This offense doesn’t figure to rank anywhere close to the top of the league in scoring. There are young players throughout the unit, starting with rookie QB Zach Wilson.
-This offensive line looks excellent on the left side with LT Mekhi Becton and LG Alijah Vera-Tucker. But they’re much weaker at C, RG and RT.
-Coleman doesn’t project as a high-volume pass catcher. Carter thrives in that area, while Coleman’s never topped 32 catches in a season.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:
At 28, Coleman’s best fantasy days are likely behind him. He’s missed 10 games over the past 2 seasons and averaged just 4.0 YPC across 14 games in 2019.
Perhaps his familiarity with the new coaching staff propels him to a solid start. But betting on Coleman staying consistent over a full season has rarely paid off. He’s an end-of-the-roster flier.
