Mike Maccagnan predicted the Jets — with lots of needs and plenty of
He wasn’t kidding.The New York general manager has been wheeling and dealing since the NFL’s legal tampering period began Monday http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline....gay-jersey , making several moves during a splashy spending spree that has the Jets plugging key roster holes.Two people with direct knowledge of the deals say the Jets have agreed to sign wide receivers Jamison Crowder and Josh Bellamy.They also agreed to sign Baltimore middle linebacker C.J. Mosley, a four-time Pro Bowl selection. The Jets also had an agreement with Minnesota linebacker Anthony Barr, but he instead opted to return to the Vikings on a five-year deal worth $67.5 million with $33 million guaranteed and more money available through escalators, according to a person with direct knowledge of the contract.The team also will re-sign defensive end Henry Anderson and backup cornerback Darryl Roberts, according to the people who spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because teams can’t announce deals until the NFL’s new year begins Wednesday afternoon.This all comes after Maccagnan and the Jets swung a deal with Oakland on Saturday to acquire left guard Kelechi Osemele, giving up a fifth-rounder while also getting the Raiders‘ sixth-round pick.And New York likely is not done.The Jets entered free agency with over $82.5 million in salary cap space, and still have the type of cash to remain in the hunt for running back Le’Veon Bell, who was considered a top target to add to new coach Adam Gase’s offense.For now, though, New York’s defense has a big-time upgrade with the addition of Mosley, who’ll pair with Avery Williamson to comprise a formidable duo.The 26-year-old Mosley is headed out of Baltimore after the Ravens abandoned hope of matching an eye-popping offer made by the Jets, a reported five years and $85 million, including a whopping $51 million guaranteed.The Ravens had hoped to keep Mosley, who led the team in tackles twice since being selected in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. But first-year general manager Eric DeCosta couldn’t come up with enough money to keep the five-year veteran.Instead, Mosley will be in the middle of Gregg Williams’ defense in New York.“The Jets just made such a powerful offer that as an organization it just didn’t make sense for us,” DeCosta told the AP. “That’s no reflection on how we feel about C.J. as a person and as a player in this community.”Mosley has had at least 100 tackles in every season but 2016 http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com...own-jersey , when he missed two games with an injury and finished with 92.After it appeared Barr would come to the Jets, it was uncertain how Williams would use the four-time Pro Bowl selection and tackling machine. It also clouded the long-term future of 2016 first-rounder Darron Lee, who has been mostly disappointing because of inconsistency. He had a career-high three interceptions last season, but also was suspended for the final four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.Lee has one year left on his rookie deal, and it would appear unlikely the Jets will pick up his fifth-year option for 2020 — even without Barr coming to New York.Crowder, who turns 26 in June, gives second-year quarterback Sam Darnold a playmaking slot receiver to pair with the speedy Robby Anderson and reliable Quincy Enunwa.Crowder, whose deal is for three years and $28.5 million according to published reports, had 221 catches for 2,628 yards and 14 touchdowns in four seasons with Washington. He was limited to nine games last season because of an ankle injury, but the Jets envision his production to be more like the previous two seasons when he combined for 133 catches, 1,636 yards and 10 TDs.Bellamy has 76 career catches for 999 yards and five touchdowns, and is also a special teams contributor. He spent the last five years with Chicago.Anderson tied with linebacker Jordan Jenkins for the team lead with a career-high seven sacks last season. He was acquired from Indianapolis last April for a seventh-round draft pick and thrived in New York’s defense.When Indianapolis switched to a 4-3 base defense, it shopped Anderson — whose size and speed make him a better fit in a 3-4. He was dealt to New York and Todd Bowles’ 3-4 base and had the best season of his career.Williams has traditionally run a 4-3 defense, but Gase said last month that the defensive coordinator would be keeping the Jets’ 3-4 base. That made keeping Anderson a priority for New York.Roberts has been a key backup and spot starter the last three seasons http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com...ker-jersey , with two interceptions and 21 passes defensed with New York. It’s getting harder to gain an edge in daily fantasy football with more research tools and advanced statistics.Similar research processes lead many daily players to the same plays each given week.Last week, DailyRoto’s Colin Drew won more than $250,000 using a lineup optimizer to identify pivots — key spots to use players who won’t be widely owned in large tournaments. Pivoting away from popular players and toward alternatives in a similar price range lets fantasy owners differentiate their lineups, distinctions that become important when trying to break away from the pack in large tournament fields.Drew’s highest scoring lineup featured Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers at just 3 percent ownership, stacked with Packers wideouts Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. This trio was a profitable pivot from the more popular stacks in the Steelers-Falcons game.In Week 6, one of the league’s top tight ends and a certain defense are being priced reasonably across daily fantasy platforms and will likely prove to be popular. If fantasy owners dig a bit deeper, they can find alternatives that are also enticing.PIVOT: ERIC EBRON TO CAMERON BRATEThus far, the Colts tight end Ebron leads all tight ends with 12 red zone targets and has scored more DraftKings fantasy points than any player at the position over the last three weeks, since teammate Jack Doyle went down. During that span, Ebron has garnered the third-highest target share of any TE and the second most targets overall. This week, he faces a Jets defense that ranks 20th against the TE according to Football Outsiders’ defense-adjusted value over average (DVOA) metric, although they have only allowed 33.4 yards per game to the position.Due to Ebron’s heavy usage, especially down by the goal line, he will inevitably be popular this week. There’s a strong case for using Tampa Bay’s Cameron Brate instead.Brate is cheaper across the industry and will be squaring off against a Falcons team that has been playing in shootouts — nearly 60 total points have been scored on average in Atlanta’s games. Atlanta has a high-powered offense and its already mediocre defense lost safety Keanu Neal and linebacker Deion Jones for the season.The Bucaneers have already switched to Jameis Winston at quarterback, meaning brighter days should be ahead for Brate even before factoring in the injury to O.J. Howard. According to Rotoviz, Brate has averaged 5.21 targets per game Taylor Rapp Jersey , 42.3 yards per game, 3.4 receptions per game, 0.5 touchdowns per game and 10.7 point-per-reception fantasy points per game in games where Winston has thrown at least 15 passes. Brate saw less usage in the five games where Winston did not meet that threshold, due to being inactive or getting hurt.Even with Howard on the team, Brate ranked 17th among TEs in red zone target share and 13th at targets at the position last year. With Howard out of the picture, Brate can reasonably be projected for a similar market share to Ebron — and Winston has shown an affinity for him. The matchup is nowhere near as favorable on paper, as the Falcons rank fifth in DVOA versus the position, but they do not have a single linebacker who grades inside the Top 50 at the position in coverage, per Pro Football Focus. The combination of cheaper price and increased opportunity trumps the supposedly inferior matchup.PIVOT: TEXANS DEFENSE TO BILLS DEFENSEThe public is undoubtedly going to have interest in targeting a defense against the lowly Bills offense that has averaged fewer yards per game than any team other than the Cardinals. Through five games, the Bills have turned the ball over eight times, and the thought of J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney getting after Josh Allen is tough to ignore. Allen has been sacked more than any other QB in the league and his 60.4 QB rating rates worst of all the 35 qualified signal-callers.Even so, defense is a tough position to spend up on in daily fantasy because that leads to skimping on offensive players who possess more upside. The difference between the Texans and the Bills is the equivalent of the pricing difference between Jarvis Landry and Julio Jones or even the difference between Nyheim Hines and T.J. Yeldon this week on DraftKings. There is no need to miss out on a true WR1 or a workhorse back because of a defense when the Bills legitimately find themselves in an ideal spot to succeed, too.Houston’s offensive line has allowed a 7.5 percent pressure rate, the fifth highest in the league, and the Bills convert pressures into sacks at a league-average 12 percent rate. However, the last time they faced a bottom-tier offensive line Shareef Miller Jersey , they sacked Kirk Cousins four times and forced him to fumble twice.Deshaun Watson is battling a chest injury and a total has not yet been released for the game likely due to the uncertainty around his status. Obviously, his absence would enhance the matchup, but even if he were to play, the Bills have yet to allow 300 yards passing in a game and they have played Philip Rivers, Cousins and Rodgers. Since Week 3, Buffalo has allowed exactly one passing TD versus Cousins, Rodgers and Marcus Mariota and they have induced eight turnovers over that time frame. PFF grades the Texans offensive line as the sixth worst run-blocking unit and the Bills defensive line as the ninth best pass-rushing unit. The Texans have passed the ball on about 60 percent of their plays in two of the last three games, and Lamar Miller has been brutal (10th worst Pro Football Focus grade of any back with at least 50 rushing attempts), so there will be plenty of drop-backs for the Bills to get after the QB.If needing salary relief, or just simply looking to be contrarian, look no further than a Bills defense that is greatly underappreciated due to the poor public perception of the team.
