AFC East Projected Starters
In the middle of May I have decided to attack projected starters at skill positions for all 32 teams. Here are the results for the AFC East. Projected starters abound.
New York Jets Projected Starters
The Jets projected starters are a bit of a mystery as to what they will produce this year, So much of this offense is predicted on unknowns. Will Le’Veon Bell bounce back? Can Denzel Mims be a number one receiver? Will Adam Gase ruin the promising young Sam Darnold? You get the sense the answer to that last question is yes, because unlike what the Browns have done for Baker Mayfield in a make or break year, the Jets have not put their third-year signal-caller in a good position.
Buffalo Bills Projected Starters
Needless to say, there is a lot of pressure on Josh Allen. By far this is the best offense in the division. Zack Moss is the perfect complimentary back and Robert Foster is not a bad WR4 to have in your back pocket. If Allen puts it together, the Bills could be trouble.
New England Patriots Projected Starters
The Patriots have a good wide receiver core if Nkeale Harry develops into what people thought he could be coming out of college. Often you see receivers make a significant jump in their second year. I won’t lie this offense gets me excited, Devin Asiasi (I was informed later by beat writers) will most likely be the number one tight end on the depth chart. Listen, go out, get Cam Newton, return to the AFC Championship.
It is hard to see any way, especially with lack of rookie mini camps, that Tua starts week one. However, this team has the potential to be fun. Preston Williams is going to be awesome this year and who doesn’t love some Fitzmagic? Could this team end up going 5-11? Sure, but it is much more likely they scrape 7-9 wins together and are fighting for the exceedingly easy to grab seventh playoff spot with Tua leading the charge in December.
