Are week 1 starting receivers on the roster?

Recommended Posts

Perriman and Crowder are almost locks to start. Mims is a lock to be available. Since he had no practice he may not get many reps on game day- they may just use him as a decoy or throw him a couple of screens or send him on a go route. Berrios should be ready as our punt return guy and backup slot. Hogan will also be available on the outside when they are not using Mims. 

That makes 5 WRs. We'll see what they do with V. and J. Smith as far as IR and who they are able to bring back on PS. But it would not surprise me one bit if they signed someone who go released yesterday as their 6th WR. 

Having said that, yes, they will use RBs and TEs heavily in the pass game. In general, I think the Jets will be a ground and pound team this year that cuts down on turnovers and relies on a stout defense. We may see Sam as a 'move the chains' QB more than we did last season.

The Jets will have no choice but to run 12, 21, and 22 personnel with the issues they have at WR, but trying to win via the ground & pound leaves absolutely no room for error. One holding penalty and you're done. The OL should be improved, and (like everything else) should get better over the course of the season, but the Bills had a good rushing defense last year. Can't let them just stack the box. If the Jets believe in Darnold -and I think they do- they need to let him throw the ball. I'm not talking seven-step drops, but quick, easy, timing throws that move the ball and keep the defense honest. Sure, run behind Becton, but use that to set up the play-action. We have a QB, I have no desire to go back to the boring offensive football of the Mangini/Rex days. 

I guess when I say ground and pound I'm talking about consistently utilizing the revamped O-line and RB group of Bell, Gore and Perine. Obviously Sam will throw the ball, obviously running the ball will set up play action and some deep shots will need to be taken to keep the defense honest. But with McGovern anchoring the middle of the line, Becton on the left side, TEs who can block and RBs who can grind it out, it makes sense to run the ball rather than have Darnold throw it 40-50 times a game. Not to mention the lack of elite talent at the WR position.
