Summary

The Jets defense didn't play near the levels of past seasons. New York did rank eighth overall defensively, but allowed 23.4 points per game. This unit had plenty of struggles as they just seemed to get old. The Jets get an infusion of younger talent this season, though, with three rookies expected to start. Sheldon Richardson will start at defensive tackle and Quinton Coples and Demario Davis should start at linebacker. This three youngsters will hopefully provide a boost for the defense, which still has plenty of talent and upside. The Jets biggest issue last season was stopping the run, ranking 26th against the rush. The addition of Richardson should help the rush defense but the linebackers will need to improve their play as well. The pass defense won't have Darrelle Revis for the first time in a long time, so the secondary has some concerns for the coming season. The Jets drafted cornerback Dee Milliner in hopes of finding a new top corner, though. The special teams unit is just alright with Joe McKnight and Jeremy Kerley handling the return duties. Kerley might have a little more upside of the two right now. He is an emerging playmaker in this offense. Fantasy Outlook: The Jets are a defense/special teams going in the wrong direction. They are still worth some spot starts but don't expect great sack totals or many touchdowns from the special teams unit. Don't draft them based on past production. This is more of a spot starter for fantasy teams.
