New York Jets, Def, Jets
2014 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-inLast updated on Jul-13-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith
The Jets are a borderline DST2. The Jets' fantasy defense was not good in 2013, but expect Rex Ryan's defense to bounce back in 2014. Defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson and defensive rookie of the year Sheldon Richardson are as formidable as any duo in the NFL. Expect them to make it very hard for opposing offenses to run on them and they will wreak havoc behind the line of scrimmage. The Jets' linebackers are not great; however, they are sure-tacklers and know how to play within the defense. The secondary is a huge question mark. Cornerbacks Antonio Cromartie and Darrelle Revis are long gone. The Jets signed free agent CB Dimitri Patterson, a playmaker that has a tendency to get burned at times. They also drafted hard-hitting Louisville safety Calvin Pryor in the first round, and Maryland corner Dexter McDougle in the third round. McDougle is expected to compete against inconsistent corner Kyle Wilson for the nickel position. 2013 first round pick Dee Milliner will most likely be the starter opposite Patterson. They also have veteran safety Dawan Landry, who could make a formidable duo when teamed with Pryor. The Jets are hoping a dominant defensive line can mask a young and inexperienced secondary. They will likely be left on waivers in most leagues.
