The Jets have used the franchise tag on S Marcus Maye. That comes a year after they traded away S Jamal Adams for a package that included 2 first-round picks. Maye has played more than 1,000 snaps in 3 of his 4 seasons with the team and improved his Pro Football Focus coverage grade each year. He finished 2020 ranked 6th among safeties in overall PFF grade. Maye's fantasy production proved merely pedestrian after a huge opener at Buffalo, but there will be upside to him if you can get him in DB3 range in 2021.
Jets S Marcus Maye is active for today's game at Buffalo. He was listed as questionable with calf and ankle injuries but appears ready to go. Maye likely carries some re-injury risk, however. So don't bump him too high up your DB hierarchy.
Jets S Marcus Maye will miss at least 3 weeks after fracturing his right thumb in Sunday's win over the Colts, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. S Doug Middleton started the 1st 3 games in place of an injured Maye this season, but Terrence Brooks replaced Maye in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game. We'll see what the fill-in plan looks like come Week 7. IDP owners need not track this situation too closely, though.
Jets S Marcus Maye (ankle) is active for today's game against the Colts. It's the 3rd straight time he'll play through a questionable tag. Maye's a low-level IDP option.
Jets S Marcus Maye (ankle) is active for today's game against the Broncos. That'll mean a 2nd straight start after he missed the season's 1st 3 games. He's not much of an IDP option, though.
Jets S Marcus Maye is inactive for tonight's game against the Lions because of a foot injury. He shouldn't have been in your IDP plans anyway. If he was and you need a fill-in, potential options include Lions DBs Tavon Wilson and Quandre Diggs.
