New York Jets quarterback Tim Boyle is set to make his second start of the season against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The 29-year-old struggled for much of his Week 12 performance but did manage to connect with wide receiver Garrett Wilson for a touchdown. He does have a favorable matchup this week with the Falcons surrendering the eighth-most fantasy points per game to the quarterback position. Still, it's extremely difficult to trust Boyle and the Jets' offense at the moment. Fantasy managers should view him as a desperation QB2 in superflex leagues.

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said the team is going to stick with Tim Boyle as their starting quarterback after a poor performance in the Week 12 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Friday. "Yeah, we're giving Timmy a chance to roll again next week," Saleh said. Boyle went 27-for-38 for 179 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in the 34-13 loss to Miami. One of the 29-year-old's interceptions came on a Hail Mary attempt just before halftime that was returned 99 yards for a touchdown. It wasn't really an upgrade over Zach Wilson, but the Jets aren't going to pull the plug just yet, so Boyle will make another start on Dec. 3 against the Atlanta Falcons, where he'll be a desperation QB2 in superflex leagues. The good news is receiver Garrett Wilson scored his first TD since Week 2 with Boyle under center on Friday.

New York Jets quarterback Tim Boyle completed 27 of his 38 pass attempts for 179 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in a 34-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Boyle had just 43 passing yards entering the fourth quarter but managed to sustain a few drives with the game already out of reach. He connected with wide receiver Garrett Wilson for a one-yard score to give the Jets their only offensive touchdown of the contest. Head coach Robert Saleh was non-committal on a Week 13 starter following Friday's loss as New York's offense did not look improved with Zach Wilson on the bench. Fantasy managers will need to consider removing all Jets from their starting lineups should Boyle get the nod next week against the Atlanta Falcons.

New York Jets quarterback Tim Boyle will make his first start of the 2023-2024 campaign in a Week 12 divisional showdown with the Miami Dolphins. Boyle replaced Zach Wilson in the second half of last week's loss to the Buffalo Bills and completed seven of 14 pass attempts for 33 yards and an interception. The Dolphins have been vulnerable to quarterback production this season, but the 29-year-old Boyle has shown very little over his 18 career appearances since 2018. He cannot be relied upon for fantasy purposes and unfortunately makes it difficult to trust New York's offensive weapons such as Garrett Wilson and Breece Hall.

The New York Jets will start Tim Boyle at quarterback for their Week 12 matchup with the Miami Dolphins this Friday, according to a source. The Jets have seen enough of Zach Wilson, at least for the time being. Wilson flopped yet again in the team's 32-6 beatdown at the hands of the Buffalo Bills in Week 11 on Sunday, with Wilson going 7-for-15 for just 81 yards, one touchdown and an interception for a QBR of 3.8. Boyle wasn't much better when he replaced Wilson in the second half, going 7-for-14 for 33 yards and a pick. The 29-year-old could easily be just as bad as Wilson or worse against Miami, and all of New York's offensive skill players -- mainly Breece Hall and Garrett Wilson -- could suffer as a result. Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) remains a long shot to return in 2023 after tearing his Achilles in Week 1.

New York Jets quarterback Tim Boyle completed seven of his 14 pass attempts for 33 yards and an interception in a 32-6 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Boyle replaced starter Zach Wilson late in the third quarter with the contest already well out of reach. Although he didn't do much to impress in his time on the field, Boyle apparently has a chance to start in Week 12. Following the loss, head coach Robert Saleh told reporters that he is undecided about who will handle QB1 duties against the Miami Dolphins. The 29-year-old Boyle has just three career touchdowns to seven interceptions, so it will be difficult to consider him an upgrade for New York's fantasy-relevant weapons.

New York Jets quarterback Tim Boyle was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster ahead of Sunday's showdown with the Dallas Cowboys. With Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) sidelined, the Jets needed someone to back up Zach Wilson, who is expected to remain under center. But Boyle hasn't seen much action since entering the league in 2018, appearing in 17 games and throwing three touchdowns and eight picks off 62.3% passing. It seems New York won't sign a veteran free agent, at least at the moment. However, Boyle hasn't proven he can be trusted, so that may change if Wilson gets injured moving ahead.
