New York Jets
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Maye's fourth NFL season last year was his best to date, as the safety produced career highs in tackles (88) and sacks (2.0) while tying his previous high-water mark with two interceptions. He'll remain with the Jets under the franchise tag in 2021 and should continue to deliver robust tackle totals as the most established member of New York's otherwise lackluster secondary.

Stuffs stat sheet in Week 2 loss
SNew York Jets
September 19, 2021
Maye had six tackles (four solo), two tackles for loss, a sack and a pass defensed in Sunday's 25-6 loss to New England.
ANALYSIS
Maye did a little bit of everything for a Jets defense that spent extensive time on the field with the offense struggling badly. New York's offensive struggles through two weeks suggest game scripts like this one will likely be common, which should allow the versatile Maye to continue stuffing the stat sheet moving forward.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2018
There will be extra pressure on Maye to deliver now that fellow young safety Jamal Adams is no longer with the Jets, but Maye's been a successful player in his own right since being selected in the second round of the 2017 draft out of Florida. He missed 10 games in his second season due a shoulder injury but was able to dress for all 16 games in the other two campaigns, recording 74 tackles as a rookie and 65 in 2019. While his stats don't jump off the page, Maye should be kept busy covering for an underwhelming Jets cornerback corps.
The Jets have infamously struggled with second-round selections, but New York appears to have bucked that trend with Maye. He excelled as a rookie last season, recording 79 tackles and a pair of interceptions. New York beefed up its secondary with the offseason addition of cornerback Trumaine Johnson, which should help Maye find even more success at the safety position in Year 2. Owners in IDP formats should keep Maye's name in mind - especially those in keeper/dynasty leagues.
