New York Jets season preview
The NFL can be notoriously fickle. One season’s pumpkin can be next year’s Cinderella. And in areas with two teams in close proximity, the toast of the town can certainly change in the space of a few months. Look no further than the Big Apple and neighboring New Jersey for an example. As a new season dawns, the Jets arguably have more buzz surrounding them than the team they share their home field with, the Giants.
Sam Darnold took his lumps by starting from Day 1 on a bad team. But that experience could pay off in spades in 2019. The rookie put together two of his best performances of the season over the last three games. That’s exactly the kind of trajectory one would want to see from a young quarterback. Jets brass also got him an offensive-minded head coach with plenty of experience working with quarterbacks. Then, it didn’t hurt that they also corralled a former Pro Bowl running back in Le’Veon Bell, who has the unique advantage of resting his body for a full year, for non-injury reasons, during the prime of his career.
Jamison Crowder and Ryan Griffin are interesting veteran offseason additions to a pass-catching corps that already featured a solid core of Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa and Chris Herndon. Ty Montgomery and Bilal Powell boast elite receiving ability out of the backfield as well. And then there’s the defense. That side of the ball, now helmed by veteran coordinator Gregg Williams, could be downright elite. First-round pick Quinnen Williams and free-agent addition C.J. Mosley are now part of a unit that already boasted the likes of Avery Williamson, Leonard Williams, and Jamal Adams.
It’s a mixed bag for Gang Green on the schedule front. On the divisional end of things, two games against the Patriots naturally stand out in terms of difficulty. The Bills and Dolphins are beatable opponents at this point, though. The non-division AFC opponents include a questionable Bengals squad. However, New York will also do battle with the rest of the AFC North, including Bell’s old Steelers teammates—no easy feat overall. Where they could catch a break is on the interconference level. Coach Adam Gase’s team will have what appear to be winnable matchups versus the Redskins and Giants.

New York Jets 2019 Best Futures Bet
Le’Veon Bell Over 7.5 rushing touchdowns: +110 at Play SugarHouse
The Jets will undoubtedly give Bell a ton of touches, especially after a full season on the sidelines. The former Steelers star has logged a whopping 355 red-zone touches across 62 career games. New York will lean on his versatile skill set heavily when it gets near the end zone this season. Bell has at least eight rushing scores in three of his first five seasons. He played six and 12 games, respectively, in the two campaigns that he failed to hit the mark. If he’s anywhere close to full health, Bell is a very safe bet to clear the 7.5 threshold.
