Initial Reaction – Jets Drop to 3-12, End Is Almost Here

The New York Jets competed today, as many expected but ultimately fell short against the New England Patriots 17-16. It was another frustrating loss in a season that is mercifully one week from ending. As we have seen time and time again, no matter how good your defense decides to be against certain opponents, you can’t win if your offense and special teams is porous.  The Jets...

NFL Week 15 Review: Fantasy Crib Notes

Chris Johnson’s lackluster outing against his former team was one of several fantasy disappointments this weekend (Photo: Frederick Breedon/Getty Images). When you’re tasked with assessing the relative value of some 400 players on a weekly basis, you make a lot of mistakes. In general though, I’ve done well enough that the big mistakes have been few and far between this season...

Chris Johnson Set to Explode Against Titans

Much like the entire New York Jets team, Chris Johnson has been a huge disappointment in 2014. It's not only Jets fans that Johnson has let down, fantasy owners everywhere who drafted him thought that they were at least getting a flex player out of him. When the Jets signed him in the offseason I was not foolish enough to expect him to come close to the numbers he put up during his...

Dolphins win ugly versus Jets 16-13

Let’s cut to the chase. Down 13-6 in the 4th quarter, Lamar Miller crashed into the end zone with 10 minutes or so remaining for a game-tying score (with extra point). This was a big win for the Dolphins tonight pushing their record to 7-5.  However, much needs to be corrected with the Dolphins defense, the same defense that made C.J.
