News: Jets receiver Scott McKnight, who was on the practice squad, was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday. The Jets signed WR Michael Campbell to the practice squad in his place. McKnight suffered a torn ACL in his left knee.
Analysis: McKnight was just a practice squad player for the Jets. He had no Fantasy value and that will continue now that he's officially done for the season.
News: The Jets signed WR Scott McKnight to their practice squad on Tuesday. McKnight had been cut from the preseason roster on Sept. 3.
Analysis: McKnight failed to make the team out of the preseason and does not seem likely to get onto the active roster anytime soon. He is not a player that should be owned in any Fantasy format.
News: According to ESPN.com, Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer likes what he sees from rookie WR Scotty McKnight, who was drafted in the seventh round out of Colorado. McKnight is also a childhood buddy of quarterback Mark Sanchez and the school's career leader in receptions and touchdown catches. "Youre talking about a guy whos going to make plays," Schottenheimer said. "A damn good slot receiver. Tough to handle in the slot and, obviously, hes going to have a great rapport with Mark."
Analysis: McKnight's arrival in New York is a nice story but the chances of him contributing in a major way are slim. Ignore him in all leagues on Draft Day.
News: The Jets spent a seventh-round pick on Colorado wide receiver Scotty McKnight, a childhood buddy of quarterback Mark Sanchez and the school's career leader in receptions and touchdown catches. McKnight, the 10th player in NCAA history to catch at least one pass in every game he appeared, has known his new quarterback since he was 8 years old. Sanchez threw passes to him at Colorado's pro day last month, and the two players' families were together watching the draft when McKnight was taken by New York. "We've never played on the same team, just always trained together," McKnight said. "It's a dream come true."
Analysis: McKnight's arrival in New York is a nice story but the chances of him contributing in a major way are slim. We wouldn't draft him unless you're in a Fantasy league with a member of Mark Sanchez's family and want to be polite.
