New York Jets Week 11 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the New York Jets rank in terms of average, best and worst:

  • Average ranking: 32.0 (32nd)
  • Best ranking: 32nd (Multiple)
  • Worst ranking: 32nd (Multiple)

Below you will find a Week 11 roundup for the Jets in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 32

They were so close to gaining a two-game lead in the race for the top pick, but the Jaguars couldn't pull off the upset at Green Bay. The Jets have the fourth-easiest remaining schedule, according to Football Outsiders, meaning they'll have to work hard to hold on to their draft position.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 32

They didn't lose this past weekend. That's a first this season. Of course they had a bye. Will they win a game? Not likely. Trevor Lawrence is coming next year.

USA Today -- Rank: 32

Last year, GM Joe Douglas promised QB Sam Darnold's parents he would take care of him. It appears Douglas is trying to live up to that vow ... even if it's worth wondering if Darnold has played his last game for this franchise and could be some other club's responsibility in 2021.

ESPN -- Rank: 32

What would they take back: Not re-signing WR Robby Anderson

GM Joe Douglas already has admitted this mistake, saying the Jets miscalculated Anderson's market value. New York let Sam Darnold's favorite target go to the Panthers for two years and $20 million -- hardly an outrageous contract. Anderson has emerged as one of the league's leading wide receivers, while the Jets have struggled mightily with their passing attack. The Jets signed Breshad Perriman to replace Anderson, but Perriman has missed four games due to injuries. -- Rich Cimini -- Rank: 32

The Jets finally had their full complement of wide receivers on the field against the Patriots in Week 9, and it turns out a starting trio of Breshad Perriman, Jamison Crowder and rookie Denzel Mims is pretty solid! Now that we've seen geriatric Joe Flacco throw for 262 yards and three touchdowns in a narrow 30-27 loss, it gives you hope Sam Darnold could have similar success once he returns. Of course, with the Jets, there's always a catch. Adam Gase announced Monday that Darnold's lingering right shoulder injury will keep him off the field when the Jets return from their bye on Sunday against the Chargers. And on it goes ...
