Jets: Big additions, small value
Since 2004, the Jets have alternated 10-6 and 4-12 seasons. Last year was the 4-12 season's turn, and it wasn't pretty.
At least the Jets didn't sit back and take it in the offseason. New York signed two veteran offensive linemen (Alan Faneca, Damien Woody) and two lead-blocking backs (Tony Richardson, Musa Smith). The Jets also signed two defensive linemen (Kris Jenkins, Calvin Pace) and drafted another in the first round (Vernon Gholston). Throw in a pair of tight ends (Bubba Franks, Dustin Keller) to the stockpile and you have a team that appears ready to get back to 10-6.
All the changes, however, do not change the fact the Jets have little to offer fantasy owners with the exception of a No. 2 running back (Thomas Jones) and a pair of No. 3 receivers (Jerricho Cotchery, Laveranues Coles). The quarterback battle between Chad Pennington and Kellen Clemens is worth watching, but only for backup purposes.
Maybe 8-8 is the most realistic forecast. No matter what, New York has that catchy cheer going for them, which is nice. How's it go again?
