Denzel Mims Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Jets WR Denzel Mims got an early start with personal trainer Chad Marr in Texas this offseason. "He was here so early he was training with my major league ball players," Marr told the New York Post, adding that the football players don't normally join his sessions until after the Super Bowl. "Denzel was here long before that." Marr says Mims has added muscle while also slimming his frame after losing "quite a bit of size" amid bouts with food poisoning and COVID-19 last year. "It's really hard to come back from all of that during a season," Marr said. "We spent a considerable amount of time, about six weeks, just making him feel good." The trainer (of course) says Mims will "just tear it up" this year. We'd obviously expect his personal trainer to project such things for his client. And after catching just 31 passes through his 1st 2 NFL seasons, Mims has to prove he's worth any fantasy attention. He's a near-free shot to take as a dynasty stash or deep-league watch player, though. We'll see what coaches have to say about the wideout as we get into team workouts and then training camp.

Jets WR Corey Davis (hip) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Colts. WR Denzel Mims replaced him last week, actually leading the Jets with a 77% route rate. He came away with just 2 catches on 3 targets for 30 yards, though. Mims is only an option in 1-game DFS tournaments.

Jets WR Corey Davis (hip) is listed as doubtful for Thursday night's game vs. the Colts. His absence will again leave Jamison Crowder, Denzel Mims, Keelan Cole and Elijah Moore as New York's top 4 WRs.

Jets WR Corey Davis (hip) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bengals. He hurt his hip in Thursday’s practice, and his status going forward is uncertain. HC Robert Saleh suggested Friday that WR Denzel Mims will step into Davis' role -- but he can't be trusted in fantasy lineups with QB Mike White under center.

Jets WR Corey Davis suffered a hip injury in Thursday's practice. HC Robert Saleh admitted Friday morning that it's "not looking good" for Davis to play vs. the Bengals this weekend. Saleh suggested that WR Denzel Mims will step into Davis' role -- but he can't be trusted in fantasy lineups with QB Mike White under center.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder (groin) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Broncos. Braxton Berrios has been filling in as New York’s slot receiver, totaling 12 catches on 18 targets for 124 scoreless yards over the past 2 weeks. WR Denzel Mims is a healthy scratch again for the Jets.

Jets WR Denzel Mims will be a healthy scratch vs. the Patriots today, according to insider Brian Costello. Mims played just 3 snaps in the opener, so there's no fantasy impact here. Mims might be on the move before this year's trade deadline.

Jets WR Denzel Mims had a rough spring, working mostly with the 2nd and even 3rd-team offenses. But Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline hears that Mims has been much better lately, showing a better understanding of the new offense and producing on the field. He's "been the best receiver at camp in the past four days alongside Elijah Moore," Pauline writes, adding that Mims got reps with QB Zach Wilson and the 1st-team offense at a recent scrimmage. Pauline also reports that Mims dealt with food poisoning in June and lost 15 pounds -- which certainly explains some of his earlier struggles. This Jets WR corps remains fluid, so we'll monitor Mims and the rest of them in preseason action.

Jets WR Denzel Mims was working with the 3rd-team offense in Friday's practice, according to multiple reports. So in case you were still wondering whether the spring reports that he wasn't in line to start this season were true, here you go. As of now, it looks like Corey Davis and Keelan Cole will be the Jets' outside receivers, with Jamison Crowder and rookie Elijah Moore battling for the slot job. Mims isn't rosterable in redraft leagues.

The Athletic's Connor Hughes came away from Jets OTAs believing Keelan Cole -- not Denzel Mims -- is the favorite for the outside WR spot opposite Corey Davis. "The Jets want to run a carbon copy of Kyle Shanahan’s offense, which requires route-running specialists at receiver who can create yards after the catch," Hughes writes. "Mims isn’t really that kind of a player. He might never be a route technician. Scouts always viewed him as more of a vertical, linear player." Mims missed some time in OTAs with a hamstring injury, while Cole "looks really, really good so far," according to Hughes. This will be a situation to monitor in training camp and preseason action.

The Jets selected BYU QB Zach Wilson with the 2nd overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Wilson enjoyed a breakout 2020 with 3,692 yards, 33 TDs and 3 INTs across 12 games. He added a 73.5% completion rate while performing as one of the nation’s most accurate QBs. The low level of competition he faced wasn’t ideal, but Wilson (6’3, 212) truly stood out as a special passer. He also rebounded nicely from an injury-riddled 2019 that began with right labrum surgery in January. Now, he heads to a strong fit with the Jets and new OC Mike LaFleur, whose offense will take advantage of Wilson’s movement skills. He’s a heavy favorite to be under center come Week 1 and could provide some spot-start value this season.

The Jets and WR Corey Davis agreed to a 3-year, $37.5 million deal with $27 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Davis had an up-and-down 4 seasons in Tennessee but is coming off a career-best 65-984-5 line. He ranked 5th in yards per route run among 84 WRs with 50+ targets. We'll credit OC Arthur Smith for some of that, but Davis has never lacked ability. It's why he was the 5th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. And he remains in his prime at just 26 years old. New York isn't an ideal landing spot, with new OC Mike LaFleur and the QB spot standing as question marks. But Davis has the potential to carve out a big target share. He figures to be joining Jamison Crowder and Denzel Mims in the Jets' 3-WR set.

Jets WR Denzel Mims returned to the team after leaving last week to deal with a family matter, insider Ralph Vacchiano reports. As long as Mims doesn't test positive for COVID, he'll play Week 15. Unfortunately, a matchup with the Rams will leave him outside fantasy-starter territory.

Jets WR Denzel Mims won't play against the Seahawks on Sunday after traveling home to Texas to attend to a family emergency, HC Adam Gase said. Mims has averaged 6 targets over the past 6 weeks, so it's a notable loss. WR Jeff Smith figures to replace Mims in the starting lineup but would be a desperation fantasy play. WRs Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman gets boosts with Mims out.

Jets WR Denzel Mims has left the team to attend to a family emergency in Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The question now becomes whether Mims returns in time and clears COVID protocols to play against the Seahawks on Sunday. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but fantasy owners who were hoping to use Mims this week should have a backup plan.
