- Updated: Saturday, August 27th

In addition to viewing our 2016 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2016 fantasy football projections for the New York Jets.


Ryan Fitzpatrick344557406627.916.2522181.6289.44
Despite all of the uncertainty about his status for the season, Fitzpatrick re-signed with the Jets on a one-year deal worth $12 million. Fitzpatrick has had his most productive seasons in a Chan Gailey offense and he threw a franchise-record 31 touchdown passes last year in his first season with the Jets.

Running Backs

Matt Forte1797525.7564823.1176.2
One of the most versatile running backs in the league, Forte turned 30 in December and signed as a free agent with the Jets this offseason. Even though he missed three games last season, Forte averaged close to 100 yards -- 69.1 rushing and 29.9 receiving -- per game in 2015. Forte won't dominate touches in the Jets' backfield the way he did in Chicago, but he's a solid RB2 in 2016.
Bilal Powell984362.5524422.1115.4
Powell was a PPR machine down the stretch as he finished as a top-25 weekly PPR performer in five of his final six games, which included three top-eight finishes. During that six-game stretch, Powell scored the fourth-most PPR points among RBs (10th-most in standard).
Khiry Robinson782963.16450.153.3
Tommy Bohanon13054104.4

Wide Receivers

Brandon Marshall9813239.8000191.1
In all but two games last season, Marshall had either 100 yards and/or a touchdown (or more) as he set a career high in touchdowns (14) and nearly missed a career high with 1,502 yards. In fact, it was the first time since Randy Moss (2003) that a receiver had at least 109/1,502/14 and only the fifth time in NFL history. Repeating last year's numbers seems unlikely, but Marshall should finish in the neighborhood of 100/1,300/10.
Eric Decker7710017.9000147.5
Scoring a touchdown in 12 of 15 games, Decker's weekly production was extremely consistent: 8.1 to 15.7 fantasy points every week (11.7-plus in PPR). While he finished as a weekly top-12 fantasy wide receiver only twice, he never finished worse than WR31 last season. That consistency led to a top-10 full-season finish in fantasy points scored among wide receivers.
