Fantasy owners sure are a fickle bunch. In the weeks leading up to the NFL draft, after it was reported that the New York Jets were interested in trading for Chris Ivory, my Twitter time line was flooded with #FreeIvory hash tags. It seemed that there was finally something the entire fantasy community could agree on – give Chris Ivory starter’s carries, and fantasy goodness would surely follow.
When the Jets finally acquired the former Saints fourth stringer for a mid round pick, I braced myself for a crushing wave of Chris Ivory puff pieces that would send his fantasy price tag soaring. While there are definitely a few glowing write-ups in circulation, I’m surprised by the amount of hedging I’ve seen from analysts and folks in social media, many of whom were banging the table for Ivory’s liberation only a few short days ago. The prevailing scuttlebutt from recent articles I’ve read on Ivory looks something like this:
“He’s a two down back. 1,100 rushing yards is his ceiling.”

END OF THE ROAD?
Geno Smith has impressed the Jets so much during minicamp that the starting quarterback job reportedly is his to lose, possibly making Mark Sanchez expendable.
Although Tim Tebow's time with the Jets has ended, it's not stopping rival executives from looking back on arguably one of the worst moves in Gang Green's history.
Giants co-owner Steve Tisch told TMZ that he feels "badly" for Tebow, implying the free agent quarterback's career was damaged by the Jets.
"I think him going from the Broncos to the...

Rex Ryan reportedly needed the Jets to draft a quarterback to have any chance at saving his job. The Jets chose Geno Smith in the second round, and its no surprise that Rex and the Jets are feeling lovey dovey.

The offers haven’t been pouring in for quarterback Tim Tebow since the Jets released him last month. In actuality the only offer the NFL’s most polarizing player has received has been from the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL, who own Tebow’s negotiating rights by the way, and that was to come in and compete for a spot as the backup QB to starter Anthony Calvillo. Not exactly...
It seems like every offseason New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan keeps losing more weight. Well, now he looks even more slender.

There’s been so much talk about Tim Tebow and his religious beliefs but maybe we’ll see soon how much soul he really has. Ron Jaworski of the AFL’s Philadelphia Soul has offered the “quarterback” a chance to play for the team. This isn’t the first AFL offer that Tebow has received but it could be the most intriguing.
The Omaha Beef put an offer on the table for the...
It's been written about over and over, especially on this site, but it bears repeating again; the biggest difference between the first two years of the Rex Ryan era, that included two straight AFC Championship appearances, and the past two years of missing the playoffs was the quality and depth along the offensive line.Mark Sanchez struggles are well documented, but it was the...
Let’s spin around the NFL…
Jets to try and trade Sanchez? Good luck.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter suggested on NFL Live that the Jets will look to trade Mark Sanchez before Week 1 if Geno Smith shows that he’s ready to play as a rookie. To that, I reply: Good luck. Teams won’t want to take on the $8.5 million in guaranteed money that Sanchez is currently owed on his contract. ...
For a lot of NFL reporters, the post-draft lull is a dark, depressing time filled with fluff pieces and human interest stories, as there’s only so much Titus Young to go around.
