Similar to the problems with assigning rigid labels on defense, pigeonholing offensive players to one spot is frequently an incorrect assumption. There is increasing fluidity to player’s positions and the New York Jets offense will need that type of versatility to help compensate for their lack of overall depth.
At first glance, it is easy to look at the Jets offense, assume Santonio...
With Mike Goodson's future up in the air, Chris Ivory doesn't have much competition to be the Jets' feature back, according to the New York Post.Fantasy Spin:Goodson was arrested last week on drugs and weapons charges, leaving just Ivory, Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight in the backfield, and new GM John Idzik has been trying to dump McKnight. Ivory showed flashes in limited...
Newjersey.news12.com is reporting that Jets running back Mike Goodson was arrested early Friday morning on drug possession and weapons charges.Fantasy Spin:Goodson is in the mix with Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight to be the starting tailback. This problem could certainly make it tougher to win the spot for the former Oakland Raiders running back.
With such a mix at QB, the running game this season needs to match, if not be better, than the "ground n' pound" mentality that Rex Ryan initiially came into Florham Park with. Thomas Jones, and then L.T., were successful at running this gameplay, with the compliment of bruiser, Shonn Greene.
Heading into the 2013-2014 season, one with the words "attack offense...

The Wacky World of Jets Offseason Workouts
Jets offseason workouts begin today with Jets, soon to be future ex-Jets, Jets in limbo, and a head coach on the hot seat. Awkward..to say the...
Over the next couple of weeks I'll be doing my own rankings of draft eligible players at their positions, today we'll start with the running backs.Shonn Greene is gone (pause for your mini re-celebration) and the Jets signed career backup Mike Goodson to join Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight in the backfield. I called Goodson a career backup because technically speaking that...
The New York Jets depth chart will still see many changes to it via free agency, the NFL Draft and potential trades. However, let’s take a current look at where they stand, what the common misconceptions are and where the most help is truly needed.
Mark Sanchez – David Garrard – Tim Tebow – Greg McElroy – Matt Simms
This won’t be the same five guys taking...
Mike Goodson, RB, New York Jets
School: Texas A&M
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Goodson finally gets a shot to be the guy for the Jets. He’s going to battle to be the top dog with third-year back Bilal Powell in training camp, and if he can stay healthy, I believe he has the better skill set to be the dynamic player...
Bilal Powell, RB, New York Jets
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
In his second season out of Louisville, Bilal Powell made some significant strides. He finished the season with 437 yards rushing while averaging 4.0 YPC. He also caught 17 receptions for 140 yards. Not great numbers and one should remember...
These are the facts:
The Jets had a terrible running game before Shonn Greene joined the Titans.
Steven Jackson is still available and the Jets must get him.
Rex Ryan consistently promises a return to the ground-and-pound running style that was so effective during the team’s 2009 and 2010 runs to the AFC Championship – but the Jets running game has been in decline since...
In a previous article this off-season, we discussed the necessary components of a rebuilding process for the New York Jets. When citing an example from how they quickly turned a disastrous 2005 season into a productive 2006, we mentioned younger players “making the jump” and having career years. A few examples of this in 2006 were Jerricho Cotchery becoming a capable, productive...
New York Jets running back Shonn Green is set to hit free
agency this offseason, and Rich Cimini of ESPN New York considers him to be “as
good as gone.”
Cimini doesn’t view Green as a fit in new offensive
coordinator Marty Mornhinweg’s West-Coast system. He also expects Green to draw
“moderate to heavy” interest on the open market considering the mediocre free
With the New York Jets starring at a bleak salary cap position before the start of the 2013 season, some changes are going to have to be made with the current roster. It appears that Shonn Greene, playing in the final year of his rookie contract is likely done in New York according to ESPN New York.
I have never been enamored with Green as a running back. He lacks an exception burst...
The New York Jets’ playoff hopes ended in the most fitting way possible. Immediately after a shanked punt gave New York a great chance to come back and beat the Titans on “Monday Night Football,” the Jets turned the ball over on an embarrassing fumble.
The Jets were down 14-10 and had the ball at the Tennesse 25 with 47 seconds left in the game. Quarterback Mark Sanchez was...
Jets halfback Bilal Powell is dealing with a broken left toe according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.Fantasy Spin:Shonn Greene (883 yards, six TD) will become a more attractive backfield option for fantasy owners if Powell is unable to play against the Titans on Monday.
SECOND-YEAR BACK BILAL POWELL SUFFERED A FRACTURED TOE IN SUNDAY'S VICTORY. FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Bilal Powell will be held out of practice Thursday after suffering a fractured toe in Sundays 17-10 victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars."I think he'll be okay. I'm no trainer or doctor, but I feel like he'll have a chance to go," Rex Ryan said.Coming off...
Jets coach Rex Ryan revealed Thursday running back Bilal Powell has a fractured toe, but he expects him to play Week 15 at Tennessee (Monday). Powell was held out of practice Thursday.
It sounds like Powell has an injury that might not only keep him out Week 15, but the rest of the season. However, Ryan seems to disagree and believes Powell will be available Monday. Powell has...
Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here is a list of LestersLegends’ under the radar players that could possibly pull out a win for you in Week 15.
Carson Palmer, QB, Oakland Raiders
Palmer throws for a lot of yards (292.7 per game) and throws nearly as many touchdowns as interceptions (22 to 14). He has five games with 350-plus yards this year. Palmer is a...
The Turn On The Jets offensive film breakdown this week is going to focus on a handful of questions I received on Twitter - All the questions generally broke out into the following four categories, which I will review section by section. Make sure to check back later today for Chris Gross‘ defensive film breakdown.
1 – Wide Receiver Separation
Many people were curious if the...
RB Bilal Powell (New York Jets) – 19 carries for 78 yards and 1 TD
WR Harry Douglas (Atlanta Falcons) – 2 catches for 29 yards
S Kerry Rhodes (Arizona Cardinals) – 4 tackles (1 solo)
CB William Gay (Arizona Cardinals) – 1 solo tackle
K David Akers (San Francisco 49ers) – 2/2; long 37
RB Michael Bush (Chicago Bears) – 1 carry for 6 yards. Michael Bush was injured after...
The semifinals are here. The question is are you still here or did your team get eliminated this final week of the regular season? Whether you’re going for a title or just playing consolation rounds, let’s scrape the last bits of meat off of the waiver wire’s bones.
Availability is based on ESPN leagues and FAAB off the $100 budget you’ve been nursing since September.
It wasn’t the prettiest game of the season, but like “they” say: a win is a win. Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell helped the New York Jets (6-7) get past the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-11).
The Jets were down 3-0 at halftime for the second consecutive week, but they were able to pick up the slack again in the second half.
Run Game Stepping Up
Greene and Powell almost split carries...
Stinkbowl 2012 is over and done with. The Jets' terrible offense slightly bettered the Jacksonville Jaguars' terrible offense.
No need to bench Mark Sanchez, who went 12/19 with 111 yards (he did lose another fumble) this time around. He was a complete non-factor in the second half as the Jets took the ball out of the maligned QB's hands and reverted to ground...
Jets running back Bilal Powell led the team with 78 yards on 19 carries, and also scored a touchdown Sunday against Jacksonville.Fantasy Spin:Powell has handled 13.5 carries per game over his last four games. He's turned in 218 yards and four touchdowns in that span and isn't a bad flex play next week against the Titans.
Jets running back Shonn Greene split carries with Bilal Powell Sunday against the Jaguars but there was plenty to go around for both rushers. Greene finished with 77 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.Fantasy Spin:Greene may be the guy nobody wants on their fantasy team but he's on pace for a career-high 1,086 yards rushing.
