Pro Football Focus takes some heat for its grading system, but it is a unique take on player performance that usually represents player performance much more accurately than the box score or an “eye test” accrued from sporadically focusing on a player during TV viewings. So, let’s take a look at how PFF thinks of some of the Jets’ biggest role players.
Listed is the player’s overall grade out of 100 and their rank at their position.
Robby Anderson, WR - 78.3, 32nd

Jeremy Kerley, WR - 73.6, 53rd
Elijah McGuire, RB - 72.6, 33rd

Buster Skrine, CB - 72.3, 78th
Marcus Maye, S - 70.0, 63rd

Juston Burris, CB - 42.5, 110th
Darron Lee, LB - 38.0, 84th
I think Marcus Maye is the most underrated player on the list. He has made a few more mistakes in recent weeks, but I think his consistency and positioning throughout the year make him far better than 63rd at his position. I think he would be an upgrade as a starter for many teams.
Muhammad Wilkerson is highly overrated on here. You can’t tell me Mo played like a top 50 defensive lineman this year, even though that in and of itself is an unimpressive title. He had a couple breakout games mid-year where he looked like the Mo of old, but other than that was completely invisible and lacking in pure effort to make an impact like the grade portray.
