Jets WRs Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore drew a matching 10 targets in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, trailing only rookie RB Breece Hall (11). Wilson caught 6 balls for 60 yards. Moore secured 4 for 49. Moore once again led the group in playing time, staying on the field for 28 more snaps and running 19 more routes than Wilson. But the rookie has consistently been targeted on a higher percentage of his routes. According to Pro Football Focus numbers, Wilson has been targeted on 25.6% of his routes, vs. 13.1% for Moore. We'll see how QB Zach Wilson's impending return from a knee injury affects that. Corey Davis remained between Moore and Wilson in playing time but trailed them in targets (5) and production (2 catches, 27 yards). TE Tyler Conklin led the Jets in receptions (8) and receiving yards (84) on 8 targets in the loss to Cincinnati.

Jets QB Zach Wilson is expected to be cleared by doctors next week to return from the meniscus tear and bone bruise in his knee, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "That puts him in line to play against the Steelers in Week 4," Rapoport adds. We'll track Wilson's practice participation this week and then see how he fares after what was reportedly an up-and-down offseason.

Jets WR Corey Davis (knee) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bengals. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again in Friday’s practice. Davis isn’t an enticing fantasy option at less than 100%. His absence would be a boost for WRs Elijah Moore and Garrett Wilson.

Jets WR Corey Davis (knee) was added to Thursday's injury report and limited in practice. We'll have a better idea of his status for this weekend's game vs. the Bengals tomorrow. Davis' absence would be a boon to WRs Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson erupted for 8 catches, 102 yards and 2 scores against Cleveland. His 14 targets — yes, 14 — represented a 31.8% team share. Teammate Elijah Moore, meanwhile, mustered only 3 catches on 5 targets. Wilson’s effortless ability to create separation was on display all day, particularly on a 3rd-and goal pass where he was isolated out wide. Later, the rookie found a hole in the middle of Cleveland’s zone and snagged the game-winning score. Through 2 games, Wilson's posted 22-12-154-2 vs. 12-8-90-0 for Moore. We’ll see how this unit is shaken up by the eventual return of Zach Wilson, but for now, Joe Flacco is playing above expectation.

Corey Davis led Jets wideouts in targets in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. Davis tallied 9 in a game that found QB Joe Flacco spread 59 attempts around pretty evenly. Only rookie RB Breece Hall (10) beat Davis, while RB Michael Carter tied the veteran WR. Rookie WR Garrett Wilson drew 8 looks, with 7 going to WR Elijah Moore and 6 to WR Braxton Berrios. TE Tyler Conklin garnered 7 of 8 TE targets, with the other going to Lawrence Cager. Davis tied for 2nd among Jets with 6 receptions and led the team with 77 receiving yards. Only 1 other Jet reached 50 yards, and no one else exceeded 52.

The Jets selected Ohio State WR Garrett Wilson with the 10th overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft. Wilson is a dynamic mover both in his routes and after the catch. He’s been compared to Odell Beckham in that regard, and we saw shades of Kadarius Toney watching Wilson’s tape. Wilson tested as a 78th percentile athlete at the Combine, with a 4.38-second 40 time. He didn’t put up huge numbers at Ohio State but battled for targets with WRs Chris Olave (who will go later in the 1st round this year) and Jaxon Smith-Njigba (who figures to be a 1st-rounder next year). Wilson ranked top 24 in Pro Football Focus’ receiving grades in each of the last 2 seasons. He played primarily in the slot in 2020 before kicking outside this past year. Wilson was more effective on the inside both years, though. He’s 6’0, 183 pounds and struggled at times vs. physical coverage in college, so he projects best in the slot as a pro. We’ll see exactly how he fits alongside WR Elijah Moore, who played 26.3% of his snaps in the slot last year. Check out the initial projections and ranking for Wilson.

The Jets on Saturday placed WR Elijah Moore on IR for his quad injury. That knocks him out for at least the next 3 games, which makes the rookie droppable in most cases if you don't have an extra spot to stash him. Week 17 would be the earliest Moore can return. His absence boosts the target outlooks for Keelan Cole and Jamison Crowder, as well as Jets RBs.

Jets WR Elijah Moore (quad) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Saints. He didn’t practice all week but is expected to test the quad on Saturday. Stay tuned for updates on his status. His game kicks off at 1 pm ET on Sunday, so we’ll know whether he’s active around 11:30 am.

Jets WR Elijah Moore (quad) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. His injury isn't believed to be serious, but the rookie's Week 14 status is in question. We'll see if he practices on Friday and then how he's listed on the final injury report.

Jets WR Elijah Moore is "day to day" with a quad injury, HC Robert Saleh said Wednesday. Saleh added that he's "hopeful" Moore will be able to play vs. the Saints on Sunday but will know more by the end of the week. We'll keep a close eye on Moore's practice participation over the next few days. The rookie ranks 2nd among WRs in half-PPR points over the last 5 weeks.

Jets WR Corey Davis will undergo season-ending core-muscle surgery on Tuesday, HC Robert Saleh said. This sounds like a sports hernia, but we'll look for further updates. Davis should be fine for the 2022 offseason. He ends up playing just 9 games in his 1st year with the Jets, averaging 3.8 catches and 54.7 yards per game. Davis is signed through 2 more seasons and should start alongside WR Elijah Moore next year. Moore should be New York's clear target leader the rest of this season.

11:36am EST 11/28/21

Jets WR Corey Davis (groin) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Texans. Look for Elijah Moore and Keelan Cole to operate as New York’s primary outside WRs, with Jamison Crowder in the slot.

Jets WR Corey Davis (groin) has been downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Texans. His likely absence will leave Elijah Moore and Keelan Cole as New York's outside WRs, with Jamison Crowder in the slot.

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 Elijah Moore (concussion) isn’t listed on the final Week 5 injury report after getting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’ll return for Sunday morning’s game vs. the Falcons in London but is only a desperation fantasy play at this point.

Jets RB Elijah Moore (concussion) graduated to a full practice on Thursday. Barring a setback, he'll play vs. Atlanta in London on Sunday morning.

Jets WR Elijah Moore (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. He's tentatively expected back for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons in London, but we'll continue to monitor his progress through the concussion protocol.

Jets WR Elijah Moore (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Titans. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 5. WR Corey Davis should dominate targets this weekend.
