La'Mical Perine, Sam Ficken Placed On Injured Reserve

The New York Jets placed rookie running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) and kicker Sam Ficken (undisclosed) on Injured Reserve on Tuesday. Perine and Ficken will miss at least the next three games. Perine was starting to see a bigger role on offense, so this injury is a tough break as he continues to develop in his rookie season. The youngster is only worth hanging onto in dynasty/keeper leagues. Veteran Frank Gore will go back to being the workhorse back in the Jets backfield, but he's nothing more than a low-upside, low-floor RB3/flex in much deeper leagues in this mediocre Jets offense. Ficken missed two extra points in Week 11 and wasn't on the fantasy radar to begin with. Sergio Castillo is next in line for kicking duties but should also be avoided in fantasy.

Josh Adams Joining Active Roster

The New York Jets are signing running back Josh Adams to the active roster on Tuesday from the practice squad, according to a source. The move comes with rookie La'Mical Perine (ankle) out several weeks with a high-ankle sprain. Veteran Frank Gore will continue to be Gang Green's lead back, with Ty Johnson and Adams backing him up. The 24-year-old Adams played in the first two games of the season, carrying the ball just three times for eight yards while catching both of his targets for 14 yards. Like most of the Jets offensive weapons, it's really hard to trust them to help you out in fantasy. Adams can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.

Jets Release Mike White

Despite New York Jets head coach Adam Gase all but saying that 2020 fourth-round pick James Morgan is essentially getting a redshirt year as a rookie, the organization made the call Monday to release quarterback Mike White, who had been serving as Joe Flacco's backup. While Sam Darnold (shoulder) continues to battle injuries, Morgan may now slot into the backup role without White on the roster. New York's quarterback situation continues to remain fluid, but Morgan could get a look in the final weeks of the year if the team's losing woes continue and Darnold remains embattled with his shoulder injury. White, who has not yet thrown an NFL pass, will be looking for a new home prior to the conclusion of the year.

Sam Darnold Set To Practice Wednesday; Week 12 Status Unknown

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold (shoulder) continues to work his way back from a shoulder injury, with the expectation that he can return to practice Wednesday. Darnold has expressed some optimism that his shoulder has improved with the time off, although how aggressive the Jets will be in rushing their young QB onto the field remains to be seen. Joe Flacco has filled in for Darnold, leading the offense to 27 and 28-point performances, respectively, in the past two weeks with the team's full allotment of wide receivers at his disposal. Even when healthy in 2020, Darnold has done little to inspire confidence in fantasy managers, making the Jets quarterback room an avoidable conundrum heading into Week 12 no matter who eventually gets tabbed to make the start.

La'Mical Perine Heading To Injured Reserve

New York Jets rookie running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) is expected to land on Injured Reserve due to a high-ankle sprain, ruling him out for at least the next three weeks. The move paves the way for Frank Gore to become the bell-cow out of the backfield, with Ty Johnson set to serve as his backup. Perine notched his second rushing score of the season Sunday and figured to continue seeing a solid amount of repetitions down the stretch in 2020 as New York attempts to gauge his skill level heading into next year. But the injury will complicate the Jets offense even more than before, making them a targetable group for fantasy managers deploying defensive streamers in season-long leagues. It's possible that Perine could return before the conclusion of the year, but in the meantime, Gore can be added off of the waiver wire as an RB3/flex in deeper formats.
