Fantasy Football Impact: New York Jets 2013 Draft

This sure did not look like a draft of a team that is trying to win now, and that is how I will feel if any of my teams end up with a Jet on them. The Jets did manage to get a solid replacement for Darelle Revis, snagging Dee Milliner with the ninth overall selection, but beyond that they did little to improve at any position. That is, unless you are a believer in Geno Smith.

Fantasy Impact

Lets for a minute pretend that Geno Smith is able to beat out Mark Sanchez (Editor’s note: or the coach is stupid enough to get ASanchez hurt in a meaningless preseason game), does anyone really think he can succeed with the talent on the Jets offense? I know Sanchez was bad last year, but so was the rest of the team. Smith has a slight bit of upside for the fantasy game due to his rushing ability, but the weapons are just not there. Santonio Holmes is a burden in the locker room, SSP color scheme¬†is an enticing–but raw–talent and Chris Ivory is yet to prove that he can stay on the field. The only format where Smith is a must-draft is in dynasty formats.

Milliner is a solid player and just might have the tools to fill the hole left by the departure of Revis. He’s worth a shot in IDP leagues, but in standard formats, the defense as a whole will be hurt due to the offense’s inability to sustain drives.
