Jets WR Corey Davis took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce that he's retiring from the NFL. HC Robert Saleh had shared earlier in the afternoon that Davis had stepped away from the team for personal reasons. Though various hamstring and groin injuries plagued Davis throughout his career, he was a reasonably productive player when healthy. The 5th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft played six seasons between the Titans and Jets, accumulating 273 catches, 3,879 receiving yards, and 17 TDs. With Davis gone, we project a small uptick in favor of WR Allen Lazard. Fellow wideout Mecole Hardman and the TEs should also see marginal improvements in their opportunity shares, but this news doesn't move the needle much for fantasy purposes. See how our WR rankings shake out in the aftermath of Davis' retirement.

Jets WR Corey Davis has left the team for personal reasons, HC Robert Saleh said Wednesday. Saleh wouldn’t say whether Davis will be back for Week 1, adding that he can take “however long he needs." We'll keep an eye on this and let you know when Davis returns. He's been no more than a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Jets WR Corey Davis shared his thoughts following an offseason of trade/cut rumors. “All of that was out of my control,” Davis said. “It was kind of a long offseason. There was a point where there was uncertainty. Obviously, with all the moves going on, it’s hard not to think that. It’s still a business, but I’m happy to be here. Happy they kept me.” New York added WRs Allen Lazard and Mecole Hardman. But HC Robert Saleh said all offseason that the team intended to keep Davis. The 28-year-old is under contract for one more season, and he’s essentially free in current fantasy drafts.

Are you expecting Jets WR Corey Davis to play for a different team in 2023? His HC disagrees. "He's gonna be on the team, yeah," Robert Saleh said Friday about Davis, according to Davis has been rumored as a trade or cut candidate all offseason. That's primarily because he sports a 2023 cap hit of more than $11 million, vs. less than $700,000 in dead cap if released. The Jets aren't in big cap trouble, though, to the point that they need to dump him. We'll see how this plays out. And the crowded WR corps will make it tough for Davis to be fantasy-relevant if he does stick around. But treat him (and other Jets) as though he's staying, at least for now. Check out where all the Jets WRs sit in our 2023 fantasy football rankings.

The Jets have agreed to a four-year, $44 million deal with WR Allen Lazard. The contract includes $22 million in guaranteed money. Lazard logged career-highs in receptions (60) and receiving yards (788) as the Packers' de facto WR1 in the absence of Davante Adams. This move carries a couple of pieces of impact. First, this signing is likely to effectively end WR Corey Davis' tenure with the Jets. Moving on from Davis would free up $10.5 million in cap space for the Jets. Second, Lazard being brought in signals that the franchise is continuing to appeal to the interests of QB Aaron Rodgers. Whether or not Rodgers ultimately becomes the Jets' next signal-caller, Lazard will have to battle with WR Garrett Wilson for targets and likely doesn't carry much appeal beyond being a WR3/WR4 for fantasy managers. Either way, this deal likely means more for real-life football than fantasy football.

The Seahawks haven't played particularly well overall on defense this season, but they have given WRs difficulty in fantasy football. Seattle stands as the worst matchup for the position by adjusted fantasy points allowed. No WR has reached 10 PPR points against the Seahawks since Week 13. No WR has reached 75 yards receiving against them since Week 7, and just 3 have gotten there all season. Rookie CB Tariq Woolen has been the biggest factor, limiting players to a 56.4% catch rate and 74.6 passer rating on balls thrown into his coverage, according to Pro Football Focus. The matchup doesn't come close to knocking Jets lead WR Garrett Wilson out of starter range in our Week 17 fantasy football rankings. But it's well worth noting for DFS lineup-building. And we wouldn't go chasing any other Jets wideouts. The difficult matchup for WRs combined with the league-best scoring matchup for TEs could also turn Jets TE Tyler Conklin into a Week 17 sleeper.

Jets QB Mike White (ribs) has been medically cleared and will start this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks, insider Brian Costello reports. White's return comes after QB Zach Wilson was so bad in Thursday night's loss to the Jaguars that he was benched for QB Chris Streveler. The news is a boost for all of New York's skill-position guys, particularly WR Garrett Wilson.

The forecast for tonight’s Jaguars-Jets game calls for light rain early, potentially getting heavier throughout the night. The bigger concern is the wind. We’re looking at sustained 15-20 mph winds with gusts of 30+ mph. It's ugly weather that figures to impact the passing and kicking games — while also possibly pushing both teams to run more than they would in better conditions. We’ve updated our Jaguars and Jets projections for the forecast.

Jets WR Corey Davis (concussion) practiced fully again on Wednesday and does not carry an injury designation ahead of Week 16 vs. the Jaguars. Teammates Denzel Mims (concussion) and Jeff Smith (knee) did not practice and have ultimately been ruled out. While the Jaguars rank as the 3rd-easiest matchup in fantasy points allowed to WRs, the inconsistencies of QB Zach Wilson make Davis a risky play. Fantasy managers should sit Davis outside of the deepest of leagues.

Thursday Night Football is just around the corner, and the Jets WR corps has a mixed bag of injuries to sort through. Corey Davis (concussion) upgraded to a full participant in practice on Tuesday after being limited on Monday. However, Denzel Mims (concussion) and Jeff Smith (knee) did not practice two days in a row to open the week. Today's injury report will shed light on who QB Zach Wilson will have to throw to in tomorrow's game vs. the Jaguars. Stay tuned.

Jets HC Robert Saleh said Monday that he's "very hopeful" WR Corey Davis (concussion) will be able to return for Thursday's game vs. the Jaguars. WR Denzel Mims figures to miss that one after sustaining a concussion in the loss to the Lions, so New York could really use Davis. We'll track his status over the next couple of days.

Jets WR Corey Davis (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Lions. We'll see if he can get cleared for Week 16. Davis figures to be replaced on the outside by WR Denzel Mims, who isn't a viable fantasy play. WRs Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore have more target upside without Davis -- although both guys take a hit with Zach Wilson under center.

Jets WR Corey Davis (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He's not a good bet to play vs. the Lions this weekend, which is good news for WRs Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore.

Jets WR Corey Davis suffered a concussion in the 1st quarter of today's game against the Bills. He'll miss the rest of the game and need to pass through the league protocol before returning. His absence is good news for the playing time of WRs Denzel Mims and Elijah Moore.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson racked up 162 yards on 8 catches in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. His target count (15) was helped by QB Mike White attempting 57 passes for the game. But Wilson still claimed a 26.3% share. WR Corey Davis ranked 2nd with 10 targets, catching 5 for 85 yards. TE Tyler Conklin tied RB Ty Johnson for 3rd with 7 targets. WR Elijah Moore caught only 2 of 6 targets for 7 yards. The Jets travel to Buffalo in Week 14.
