The New York Jets are primed for big things to happen during the 2019-20 season as they are projected to have at least seven wins this season.
New York’s win total projection could change all-around, but some fans have betting on them by using platforms such as the ones from the Top online sportsbooks in NJ.
Their offseason was ‘eventful’ to say the least. Their free agency was an A+ effort with key new free agent additions such as linebacker C.J. Mosley, and running back Le’Veon Bell, who signed with the team after a season-long holdout from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Also adding to the addition line was head coach Adam Gase, who was hired after spending the last four seasons with the Miami Dolphins. Gase also went to the playoffs during his previous tenure.
Coming into training camp, the Jets have sustained a solid, young core. The offense is led by second-year quarterback Sam Darnold and veteran wide receiver Robby Anderson. The players shown off some flashes of upside as the former USC phenom threw for nearly 3,000 passing yards and 17 touchdowns.
Who have also shown signs of upside was the defense, despite being ranked in the top 25 overall in the league.
Coming to help the defense get back to shape was veteran defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who comes over after spending last season with the Cleveland Browns.
Players to look out for in taking a step forward include safety Jamal Adams, who has recorded 3 and a half sacks and his first career interception last season.
Other players to look out for on their defense include highly-touted rookie defensive lineman Quennen Williams, who was drafted number three overall out of University of Alabama.
Williams will be expected to be a productive asset to the defensive line who have struggled sacking the quarterback last year. Their big sack leaders were edge rusher Jordan Jenkins and Henry Anderson.
For the Jets this year, this should be a year in which they can take a step forward. And based on these observations above, this should be a year in which they can contend for a playoff spot.
We will see.
