Predictions for the 2019 New York Jets offensive production…

1 – Sam Darnold

16 games started, 59.7 completion percentage, 3,860 yards, 27 touchdowns, 14 interceptions, 2 rushing touchdowns, 2 fumbles lost

Darnold will take a notable leap forward in his second year, flirting with 4,000 yards and spiking up 10 touchdowns while avoiding any missed time. Turnovers will continue to be a presence but not fluctuate completely out of control.

2 – Le’Veon Bell

290 carries, 1,189 rushing yards, 75 receptions, 500 receiving yards, 9 total touchdowns

It is probably fair to assume Bell will miss a game or two at some point and/or have a ramp up period early in the season. However, once he gets rolling there is no reason to expect he can’t be a comparable player to what we saw in Pittsburgh.

3 – Robby Anderson: 

65 receptions, 1,000 yards, 6 touchdowns

Anderson narrowly exceeds 1,000 yards for the first time in his career and functions as the team’s de facto #1 wide receiver for all 16 games.

4 – Jamison Crowder

73 receptions, 765 yards, 3 touchdowns

Crowder will be the Jets primary target along with Bell in the short to intermediate passing game, leading all receivers in catches and targets.

5 – Quincy Enunwa

45 receptions, 550 yards, 4 touchdowns

You have to assume Enunwa will miss at least a few games at some point this year. While remaining a playmaker who has a few big moments, he will ultimately be a lower priority for targets than Anderson, Crowder and Bell (along with potentially Herndon when he’s back).

6 – Chris Herndon

40 receptions, 500 yards, 4 touchdowns

Herndon will quickly become heavily integrated into the offense when he returns from suspension after 4 games. When he can play a full 16 in 2020, he will be a player who can get up near 1,000 yards.

7 – Ty Montgomery: 

30 receptions, 220 yards, 60 carries, 270 yards, 3 total touchdowns

He will function as Bell’s primary backup and have a bigger role than expected early in the season before Bell settles into a more traditional workhorse role. Montgomery will stay involved as a receiver down the stretch run of the season.

8 – Trevon Wesco: 

10 receptions, 80 yards, 1 touchdown

The rookie will predominantly be used as a blocker and not regularly see much, if any targets.

9 – Bilal Powell: 

50 carries, 225 yards, 8 receptions, 70 yards, 1 total touchdown

The veteran will stick as the third back and see situational work throughout the year and in stretches where Bell gets banged up.

10 – Josh Bellamy: 

10 receptions, 90 yards, 0 touchdowns

Bellamy is making the roster because of special teams and will see a little action on offense when Enunwa gets banged up and when the Jets mix in four wide looks.

11 – Deontay Burnett:

12 receptions, 100 yards, 1 touchdown

Burnett will start out behind Bellamy on the depth chart but gradually move into the fourth receiver role by the end of the year and score his first NFL touchdown.

12 – Ryan Griffin: 

12 receptions, 100 yards, 0 touchdowns

He will grab a few receptions early in the year before Herndon comes back and then settle in as the primary backup pass catching tight end.
