Jets | Jace Amaro doubled playing time in Week 6

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 11:29:54 -0700

New York Jets TE Jace Amaro played 36 snaps in the team's Week 6 loss to the Denver Broncos after being stuck between 20 and 25 snaps in every game this year before that. He also doubled his season high in catches and scored a touchdown against the Broncos. Amaro could be emerging into QB Geno Smith's No. 2 target behind WR Eric Decker in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Amaro's big Week 6 performance put him on the map as a popular waiver wire target this week. It might be time to capitalize on his cheap FantasyScore price ($3,000; 6.0% of cap) against the New England Patriots Thursday night.

Jets | Geno Smith finding Jace Amaro

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 07:22:47 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith connected on 10 of 12 targets to TE Jace Amaro in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Amaro is starting to emerge as a solid TE1 candidate on FantasyScore. The Jets travel to New England Thursday, Oct. 16, and Amaro should have plenty of attention paid to him.

Jets | Jace Amaro will be more involved

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 16:10:20 -0700

New York Jets TE Jace Amaro will become a major factor in the offense eventually, according to head coach Rex Ryan. "I like to stay away from the production thing because a lot of things go into that," Ryan said. "But he's going to be a major factor for our football team, and probably very soon." Amaro had two catches on four targets for seven yards in Week 1 in his NFL debut. He's making the transition from being flanked out wide in college to having to block on running plays.

Fantasy Tip: Amaro is worth watching. He could be more involved in the passing game against the Green Bay Packers in Week 2, but even at $3,700 (7.4% of cap) at FantasyScore, he's not worth gambling on just yet.

Jets | Jace Amaro struggling

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 09:16:05 -0700

New York Jets rookie TE Jace Amaro is struggling in his initial workouts. The no-huddle, spread system at Texas Tech is significantly different from the Jets' deeper pro-style playbook. He looked lost in three-wide packages and needs to polish his routes, in-line position, footwork and releases.

Fantasy Tip: Amaro may be overvalued in fantasy drafts based on his college history and raw talent. But if he loses any time to Jeff Cumberland, Zach Sudfeld or Chris Pantale, that's burying him further into waiver-wire territory. For keeper leagues, of course, he's an intriguing hold if you can sit on a TE backup.

Jets | Jace Amaro seeing time out wide

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 10:08:47 -0700

New York Jets TE Jace Amaro received some repetitions while lined up at a wide receiver during practice Wednesday, June 18.

Fantasy Tip: Rex Ryan has been impressed with Amaro during offseason workouts. The rook has a real chance to start as the main tight end, and he's a real pass-catching threat as a safety valve for Geno Smith. Amaro should be drafted as a cheap TE2 option.

Jets | Moving Jace Amaro around

Sun, 15 Jun 2014 18:04:04 -0700

The New York Jets have been lining TE Jace Amaro up at different spots during organized team activities, because they believe he can be an offense weapon. "He's lined up everywhere," tight ends coach Steve Hagen said. "He's lined up flexed out, hand down, out by himself (on the) single-receiver side, on the three-receiver side, on the two-receiver side. We use him everywhere we can use him. So we have asked him to do a lot, and we expect him to do a lot. He's asking that of himself, and he's delivering, too. It's been fun to watch him."

Jets | Jace Amaro selected 49th overall

Fri, 09 May 2014 17:23:19 -0700

The New York Jets selected Texas Tech TE Jace Amaro with the 49th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Amaro is more of a pass-catching tight end, and he could enter the mix and start immediately to give Geno Smith (if he wins the job) a nice safety blanket and red zone target. Amaro will be a weak backup tight end to start.

NFL | Eric Ebron is consensus best TE

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 20:26:17 -0700

According to a poll of 17 NFL personnel men, North Carolina TE Eric Ebron was unanimously selected as the top tight end available in the 2014 NFL Draft. After that, the personnel men rated University of Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins next, then Texas Tech TE Jace Amaro and Notre Dame TE Troy Niklas. "Once you get past the first two or three everyone else you just put them in a bag and kind of shake them up," one scout said. "There's nothing that really stands out. The tough part is all the guys that are talented have off-field issues."
