2019 Fantasy Football Projections: New York Jets

- Updated: Sunday, July 14th

In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the New York Jets.


Sam Darnold519.7322.23689.922.0914.2949.8159.41.12230.04
Even if there were some (expected) ups and downs as a rookie, Darnold ended 2018 on a positive note. Throwing six touchdowns to only one interception over his final four games, the (recently-turned) 22-year-old should build upon his late-season success with improved weapons in 2019.
Trevor Siemian2.61.517.
Davis Webb2.

Le'Veon Bell266.81093.9864.5509.62.42222.87
Returning to the field after sitting out 2018, Bell trades the high-powered Steelers offense for an improving-but-not-yet-as-potent Jets offense. In addition, Football Outsiders ranked the Jets offensive line 32nd (i.e., last) in run blocking (Adjusted Line Yards) in 2018. Even though he averaged only 4.0 yards per carry in 2017, Bell had a career-high 406 touches, 1,946 scrimmage yards and 11 touchdowns in his most recent season. Once a perenniel consideration at No. 1 overall, Bell is no longer a lock to be a top-five back.
Ty Montgomery45.5191.11.2515.3125.50.4641.92
Now with the Jets, Montgomery enters the season as the likely RB2 behind Bell, who should dominate touches in the Jets' backfield. There is limited fantasy usefulness despite his "strong spring."
Elijah McGuire36118.80.996.6640.2325.6
Bilal Powell16.972.70.310.681.60.2618.79

Robby Anderson59.5886.66.841.77.70.02130.59
Anderson's numbers were down year-over-year, but he finished strong when Sam Darnold returned from a foot injury. Over the final four games of the season, Anderson had 23 catches for 336 yards and three touchdowns. During that span, Anderson was the WR5 (WR6 in PPR). With improvement and more consistency from Darnold, Anderson has the potential to vastly exceed his current ADP and is one of my favorite targets as a third receiver.
Jamison Crowder58.87353.
Not only did he miss roughly half the season, but Crowder set a career low in receptions per game (3.2) and his 43.1 YPG was his lowest since his rookie season. A return to his 2016/2017 numbers -- 60-plus catches and 750-plus yards -- seems reasonable, however, if he can stay healthy. Perhaps he can better those numbers if second-year quarterback Sam Darnold takes a major step forward, Crowder had a strong offseason with his new club.
Quincy Enunwa48.3598.92.661.15.50.0176.46
A high-ankle sprain sustained in mid-October killed his early-season momentum, but Enunwa showed good rapport with Sam Darnold to start the year. Enunwa had at least eight targets, four receptions and 57 yards in four straight games to kick off the season.
Josh Bellamy4.251.20.250006.62
Deontay Burnett3.749.60.190006.1
Deonte Thompson2.227.90.10003.39

Chris Herndon38.4487.73.4600069.53
Fantasy's TE6 (TE7 in PPR) from Weeks 6 to 16, Herndon ranked 10th in receptions (33), fifth in yards (447) and fourth in touchdowns (four) among tight ends during that span. Although his second season will begin with a four-game suspension, Herndon could post top-10 per-game numbers once he returns from his suspension in Week 6 (Jets have a Week 4 bye).
Eric Tomlinson8.193.20.4100011.78
Daniel Brown7.166.70.210007.93
Trevon Wesco4.345.20.220005.84
