Report: Jets benched Calvin Pryor due to disciplinary reasons
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/14) The Jets benched defensive back Calvin Pryor in favor of Jaiquawn Jarrett in Week 10 against Pittsburgh, and it may have been because of disciplinary reasons. Although Pryor suffered a stinger in the first quarter of his previous game, the first-round pick was late to multiple meetings, which may have been the reasoning behind his benching in Week 10, according to ESPN New York.
With the Pryor on the bench, Jarrett thrived registering a pair of interceptions, a sack and a fumble recovery in a 20-13 victory.
"It was a coach's decision," Pryor said, according to the New York Post. "We were going to rotate, but Jaiquawn Jarrett had a hell of a game, two interceptions, picked-up fumble. Stay with the hot guy, just keep him out there."
Jets S Jaiquawn Jarrett plays role of hero in Week 10 win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/14) Don't be surprised if Jets safety Jaiquawn Jarrett is named AFC Defensive Player of the Week after a brilliant performance Sunday. He became the first Jets player to record an interception and fumble recovery in the same game in six years. And he added a second pick in keying a tremendous defensive effort that beat Pittsburgh.
Jarrett finished with 10 tackles and even contributed one of two sacks of Ben Roethlisberger.
Jets DST has lackluster performance
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/14) Through the Jets defense reversed a troubling trend as far as the scoreboard goes Week 9 at Kansas City, allowing 24 points (on 309 yards) after allowing an average of 33.0 in its previous four games, it wasn't as effective rushing the passer, recording just one sack.
It also went without a takeaway for the fourth straight game, giving it only three all season.
The Jets DST was considered one of the most reliable units in Fantasy not too many years ago, but these days, it's only viable with the right matchups. You can leave it on waivers for Week 10 against Pittsburgh.
Geno Smith among Jets players inactive Week 9
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/14) Jets quarterback Geno Smith was listed as inactive Sunday against the Chiefs due to a shoulder injury. Smith was going to be the backup quarterback to Michael Vick, if he was active.
(10/27/14) The Jets offense turned the ball over six times and the defense simply couldn't make up for it in a 43-23 loss to the Bills.
The Jets actually held the Bills to 280 yards of total offense, thought that might have just been the result of a plethora of short fields to work with. The Bills did not turn the ball over once in the blowout, and the Jets managed just four sacks on the positive side of the ledger.
The Jets have not turned in a double-digit Fantasy point game since Week 3, and are unlikely to do so in Week 9 with the Chiefs on the way.
