NFL Season 2022/23 Preview 04 – New York Jets

After tanking for a large proportion of last season, the New York Jets latest rebuild began in earnest once again this summer with a bundle of picks in the early rounds of the draft giving them hope that they can seriously improve their roster.

With some excellent trades too, the Jets look much stronger this year and while challenging for the title looks a long way off still, the gap between themselves and their AFC East rivals the Patriots and Dolphins should be much smaller.

The Jets face a tough start this season but could come good over the second phase of the campaign following their bye week and they may well surprise a few teams this year.

New York Jets – Strengths

  • Jets have made some fantastic draft and free agent signings this summer and they should be a much better unit on both offense and defense as a result.
  • Zach Wilson should have more talent alongside him to work with in his second year as a quarterback, which will give the offense a much needed shot in the arm.
  • Have good quality defense and special teams which can keep them in games.

New York Jets – Weaknesses

  • The Jets are too often the Jets – they don’t perform – and they need to change this mentality perhaps more so than the personnel they have on their team.
  • They have a very tough start with their opening four games against all the AFC North teams and then they face their three divisional rivals plus the Broncos and Packers before their bye week. Second half of the season is far easier, but the Jets could be out of contention by then.
  • Roster has improved in a number of areas, but there are still question marks in key areas that need to be addressed.

Season Predictions & Top Betting Picks For The New York Jets

  • Regular Season Record Prediction – 6-11
  • Playoffs? – No
  • Super Bowl Winning Odds – 125/1
  • Conference Champion Odds – 66/1
  • Divisional Winner Odds – 18/1
  • Best Player on Offense – Zach Wilson QB
  • Best Player on Defense – C.J. Moseley MLB
  • Best Rookie – Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner CB
  • Surprise Of The Season – The Jets to make big strides towards challenging the Dolphins and Patriots for second spot in the AFC East and be a much more competitive team.

Robert Saleh needs a better season from his team with three first round picks from this year’s draft set to start, plus Zach Wilson in his second year at QB. This is the time for the Jets to take some major steps forward and to become a genuine contender in the East over the next few years.
