|Coleman signed a modest one-year, $2 million deal to join former coaches Robert Saleh and Mike LaFleur in New York after a disappointing injury-riddled two years with the 49ers. The six-year veteran managed just 53 rising yards on 28 carries last season with San Francisco and failed to score a touchdown despite seeing action in eight games.
We anticipate he will get the first chance to start based on seniority, but reports out of camp are positive for rookie Michael Carter. In addition, Coleman has a long history of injuries and has just one full 16-game season on his resume.
Both Coleman and Carter are worth drafting in all formats, with the latter possessing far more upside than the former. The Jets also have La'Mical Perine in the backfield and Ty Johnson, both of whom could eat into the workload of Coleman.
|Tevin Coleman listed as RB1 on Jets depth chart|
Veteran snags top role heading into Week 1

|Tevin Coleman is listed as the RB1 on the Jets Week 1 depth chart.
FFToday's Take: Ty Johnson and rookie Michael Carter just didn't have enough of a grasp of the offense heading into Week 1, leaving Coleman as the default RB1 headed into the matchup against Carolina. Coleman isn't the sexiest option but he should be considered in some deeper fantasy formats against the Panthers.

Beat writer makes comp to 2019 San Francisco backfield

|Michael Carter had a nice training camp; he’s among the more elusive backs I’ve seen in my time on the beat; but this is going to be a three-man rotation. Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson and Carter will all see their share of snaps in the regular season, with La’Mical Perine working in as the goal-line, short-yardage back. (The Athletic - Connor Hughes)|
FFToday's Take: Hughes goes on to say "the best way to describe how the Jets plan to use their running backs is to look to the 2019 49ers. In that season, Coleman ran for 544 yards and six touchdowns, Raheem Mostert rushed for 772 yards and eight TDs and Matt Breida tallied 623 yards and one score. Carter should still be expected to be the most valuable member of this group for fantasy purposes, but it appears he will have an uphill battle to be worthy of regular flex consideration.
| Elijah Moore (quad) expected back this week|
Day-to-day according to HC Robert Saleh

|Jets injury update: Rookie WR Elijah Moore, who suffered a quadriceps injury on Thursday and underwent an MRI, is day-to-day. Robert Saleh hopes to get him back this week. Game injuries: DE Jabari Zuniga (knee) and DT Michael Dwumfour (calf). RB Tevin Coleman wasn't at the game due to a personal reason. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: MRI results must have been positive as Moore is expected back at practice this week. By most accounts, he's been the best receiver at camp thus far with Denzel Mims taking a back seat. He's worthy of a late-round add.
