The Jets have started to practice with the Wildcat package. We break down the fantasy implications.

The New York Jets began practicing with a Wildcat-type formation on Monday. Practice was closed to the public, and media personnel could not report any specifics of schemes used, as the Jets want to keep this strategy under wraps.

Analyis: Tony Sporano was notorious for using the Wildcat offense when he was the head coach for the Miami Dolphins, and now as the new Jets offensive coordinator he will continue to utilize this operation. Rex Ryan has also been known to use the Wildcat in the past, so this news shouldn't surprise anyone.

Tim Tebow will clearly be a threat running this style of offense. He racked up points for fantasy owners last season with the option attack in Denver, and now New York will attempt to find similar success with Tebow's versatility. Mark Sanchez is still the starting quarterback, for now, but Tebow needs to be stored on your depth chart if this Wildcat idea continues to play out.
