What will happen to the current depth chart?
Robby Anderson, Charone Peake and Jalin Marshall will be the top three wide receivers. This is a great opportunity for draft picks ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen, both of whom should see an increase in practice reps. Because he played in a similar system at Alabama, Stewart is viewed by the organization as the rookie most likely to contribute. Both players have been quiet in camp; this is a good time to get noisy. General manager Mike Maccagnan appears committed to the youth movement, so he'll probably see what he has on campus before going outside the organization.
Are there any decent free agents out there?
Not really. The biggest names are Cecil Shorts (11 catches, 152 yards in 2016), Eddie Royal (33, 369 yards, two touchdowns) and Vincent Jackson (15, 173). Shorts, 29, is the youngest of the group. Jackson used to be a terrific player, but he's 34. These aren't appealing options.
Which players could shake loose in the preseason?
Danny Amendola (New England Patriots), Sammie Coates (Pittsburgh Steelers), Harry Douglas (Tennessee Titans) and Darrius Heyward-Bey (Steelers) are among the names that could be released or traded in the coming weeks. A couple of familiar names are worth watching: Jeremy Kerley (San Francisco 49ers) and Victor Cruz (Chicago Bears). What, you expected Odell Beckham Jr. on this list?
Can the Jets make scheme adjustments to compensate for their receiver issues?
They could become more of a two-tight end offense than initially expected. Thing is, they're not real strong there, either. Austin Seferian-Jenkins looks like he could be a factor, but there's a dropoff after him. Rookie Jordan Leggett has receiving skills, but he has a ways to go. Look for offensive coordinator John Morton to feature his top running backs, Matt Forte and Bilal Powell, in the passing game. When in doubt, check it down to one of them.
What are the fantasy implications?
Attention fantasy owners in PPR leagues: Forte and Powell will rack up a lot of catches. Anderson's value will increase if only because he slides into the so-called No. 1 spot. He showed last season he can stretch a defense, but now he must become an all-around receiver.
