News: 2 days agoWilson caught five of nine targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Patriots.
Spin: The majority of Wilson's yardage came on a 29-yard catch on the game's third-to-last play, after which the Jets spiked the ball with one second left to set up a Hail Mary that bounced off Randall Cobb's hand. Zach Wilson threw for just 157 yards, but at least Garrett led the team in targets, catches and receiving yards. The second-year wide receiver has also accounted for two of the Jets' three offensive touchdowns through three weeks, and Wilson should continue to work as the top option in New York's underwhelming passing game in Week 4 against the Chiefs.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: The Jets quarterback situation was rough last season, but that didn't stop Wilson from salvaging a terrific rookie campaign. The first-round pick out of Ohio State finished sixth in targets and fifth in end zone targets (13), which powered him to a 21st-place finish in fantasy points. Improved QB play would've pushed Wilson even higher, as he was held to four TDs (7.9 expected) and his 56% catch rate ranked near the basement of the league. Help is, of course, on the way, as the Jets traded for Aaron Rodgers during the offseason. With the future MVP under center, the sky is the limit for Wilson. The 23-year-old is a fringe fantasy WR1 with elite upside.
