News: 2 days agoWilson caught three of seven targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 13-8 loss to the Falcons.
Spin: After being targeted only once in the first half, Wilson came alive on the Jets' first possession of the third quarter, starting the second half with a 31-yard catch before adding a nine-yard reception to convert a fourth down. He had a 22-yard toe-tapping catch along the sideline overturned on a challenge later on the same drive, so the Jets had to settle for a field goal to cut Atlanta's lead to 10-8. Wilson didn't add another catch the rest of the way, nor did the Jets score again, as a change in quarterback from Tim Boyle to Trevor Siemian in the fourth quarter proved futile. Regardless of which quarterback the Jets tab to start in Week 14 against the Texans, Wilson's potential will remain held back by poor play under center with Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) still recovering.
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.
