1) Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB
Ryan Fitzpatrick has the Jets starting quarterback locked up. Todd Bowles has said that he would like to give Fitzpatrick the entire first half on the field against the Falcons. Fitzpatrick needs to play well. He needs to play well for the team and for the fans. A good game from Fitzpatrick would give both the team and the fans confidence in him entering the season. Without Geno Smith, it all falls on Fitzpatrick. Bryce Petty is clearly not ready, and Matt Flynn is not healthy or a good enough option. The quarterback will have his weapons (Marshall, Decker, Ivory, etc.) at his disposal tomorrow night and needs to impress.
2) Jeremy Kerley, WR
For a couple of years now, Jeremy Kerley has been thought of as a safety blanket for Jets quarterbacks. In his four seasons as a Jet, Kerley has produced nicely in the slot. Last season his production was a little bit down as he put up 38 catches and a touchdown. Now, Kerley is competing for the slot job with youngster Quincy Enunwa even after signing a nice contract extension towards the end of last season. If Kerley wants to keep his job, he needs to produce.
3) Antoinio Cromartie, CB
It is awesome to see Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie playing for the Jets again. Cromartie signed a 4 year, 32 million dollar deal with the Jets in the offseason. Thus far in camp, Cromartie has been getting beat often. The 31 year old cornerback is not playing well in practice. He has played it off in interviews, but it has become a concern. Cromartie can silence some of the people saying he is washed up with a solid game against the Falcons.
