Each offseason brings change to NFL rosters, and those changes often have fantasy implications. Below, I lay out the changes at the skill positions and how those moves impact the fantasy status of the new roster.


2017
    QB: Josh McCown, Bryce Petty
    RB: Matt Forte, Bilal Powell, Elijah McGuire
    WR: Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, Jeremy Kerley, ArDarius Stewart
    TE: Austin Seferian-Jenkins


2018
    QB: Josh McCown, Sam Darnold, Teddy Bridgewater
    RB: Isaiah Crowell, Bilal Powell, Elijah McGuire, Trenton Cannon, Thomas Rawls, Akeem Judd
    WR: Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, Quincy Enunwa, Terrelle Pryor, ArDarius Stewart, Devin Smith
    TE: Clive Walford, Chris Herndon, Jordan Leggett




Pre-Draft Offseason:

The Jets re-signed Josh McCown to be their bridge quarterback to whomever they pick this season, and it's a good move to keep the offense from collapsing, as McCown played well last season. He's not winning any Super Bowls in the near or distant future, but he will keep the starters in fantasy consideration. The Jets also signed Teddy Bridgewater on a team-friendly deal, which was a strong signing, as his potential is worth investigating.

McCown was able to make Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse relevant in fantasy last season, and this year, he'll have Quincy Enunwa back from injury and the addition of Terrelle Pryor. Pryor was a bust last season and has plenty of competition for touches in this group, so I'm not high on him, but the Jets should end up with a top-three receiver who will help McCown be a streamable fantasy player again this coming season. Figuring out which receivers will step up and see enough targets to be useful might be tough, but Robby Anderson and McCown have a strong connection and should be able to keep it going this season even if Anderson sees a game or two off for off-field trouble.

The running back situation is also going to be tough to decipher. The Jets picked up Isaiah Crowell and let Matt Forte go, but still have Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire. If they don't draft a running back, I like Crowell enough that I'll be drafting him if his ADP fits, although he's going to have to be great value.



Post-Draft Update

The Jets had a great draft because they were able to get Sam Darnold with the third-overall pick. Darnold was considered the best quarterback prospect in the 2018 NFL Draft by a large swath of draftniks, and the Jets were in great need to find their signal-caller of the future. He may not start Week 1, but then again, maybe he will. Either way, he has a lot of upside for the NFL, and if you are in need of a quarterback in dynasty leagues, be sure he's on your radar.

With the 107th-overall pick, the Jets took tight end Chris Herndon out of Miami. Herndon is the player they want to be TE1, but he'll likely be behind Clive Walford to start. Herndon will get to grow with Darnold and will look to take the job by next season, so there is long-term upside there.



2018 Fantasy Outlook:

Stud: None

Solid: Robby Anderson

Sleeper: Isaiah Crowell
