The Jets DST used to be considered an elite unit, but for the past two years they haven't been a solid Fantasy option. In 2013, the Jets finished No. 27 in Fantasy points with 13 interceptions, 41 sacks, two fumble recoveries, two defensive touchdowns and one safety. They lost Antonio Cromartie as a free agent, who was their best cornerback, and this looks like a shaky secondary even with the addition of rookie free safety Calvin Pryor with Dee Milliner, Dimitri Patterson and rookie Dexter McDougle at corner and Pryor and Dawan Landry at safety. The front line is solid with Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson, but they need to create more sacks and turnovers. The positive for the Jets is the upgrades on offense with Michael Vick, Chris Johnson and Eric Decker should hopefully keep the defense off the field a little more, but the Jets DST is just a No. 2 Fantasy option in the majority of leagues. They should be considered a bye-week replacement or a waiver wire addition if your starting unit struggles to open the season.
