  • Tajh Boyd signs with FXFL team
    Tajh Boyd has signed with the Florida Blacktips of the Fall Experimental Football League.

    Advice: A sixth-round pick of the Jets, Boyd couldn't beat out Matt Simms for the No. 3 quarterback job and was released during final cuts. He'll look to continue his career after failing to get any practice squad offers. Boyd could eventually resurface on a reserve/futures contract. Rotoworld.com

Floyd had a 19-yard reception on the first play of the game, and from that point on turned in a goose egg. Until Carson Palmer (shoulder) returns, Floyd can only be viewed as a fantasy WR3.

  • Rex: Amaro will be 'major factor' in 2014
    Jets coach Rex Ryan expects rookie TE Jace Amaro to be a "major factor," and "probably pretty soon."

    Advice: Amaro was limited to just two catches on four targets in last Sunday's win over the Raiders, but had a strong preseason. The Jets lack weapons outside Eric Decker and their running game, and are going to need Amaro to make plays. It's encouraging Ryan is already publicly acknowledging that. Amaro will likely max out as an inconsistent TE2 in re-draft leagues, but is a strong hold in Dynasty formats. Rotoworld.com
