Week 12
Coleman got the start Sunday against Houston and beat Ty Johnson in just about every way. Coleman claimed 16 of 31 RB carries, with Johnson (6) also ranking behind practice-squad call-up Austin Walter (9). Johnson led the group in pass-play snaps (14 vs. Coleman’s 9, according to Pro Football Focus). But Coleman drew 3 targets to 1 apiece for Johnson and Walter.

Coleman didn’t do anything special with all that opportunity. He gained a decent 67 yards on his 16 totes (4.2 per carry), but that also came against a run defense that Football Outsiders rates 23rd in DVOA.

Coleman caught 2 of 3 targets but tallied just 3 yards on them. And he lost out both Jets rushing TDs: 1 for Walter, 1 for QB Zach Wilson. The QB’s rushing score came via an RPO play that also had Walter as his RB.

The Jets actually made 4 trips into the red zone in this game, and Coleman left the field each time. He did log 1 carry from the 8-yard line on the team’s final red-zone venture. But he then gave way to Walter for the ensuing 4 snaps.

So if you NEED a RB from this Jets offense right now, for some reason, then it’s Coleman for touch volume. But combine his meh production with a just-OK role, a bad offense and Michael Carter’s eventual return, and Coleman clearly doesn’t reach the level of being an attractive fantasy option.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

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.
