Jets WR Corey Davis (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. Reportedly dealing with a sprained MCL, he's unlikely to play vs. the Patriots this weekend. That'll leave Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore as the top-2 WRs for the run-heavy Jets.

Jets WR Elijah Moore re-joined the team on Monday. HC Robert Saleh expects him to play vs. the Patriots this weekend. "We love him," Saleh said. "We know how much he can help us and we just want to help him ... he's still part of this family." We wouldn't be surprised to see the Jets make an effort to get Moore going on Sunday, especially if WR Corey Davis (knee) is out. That said, Moore would still be a shaky Week 8 fantasy play.

The Jets believe WR Corey Davis suffered an MCL sprain in Sunday's win over the Broncos, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. HC Robert Saleh said afterwards that it's not a long-term injury. We should get a more concrete timeline for Davis on Monday. His absence will leave Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore (assuming he stays with the team) as the Jets' clear top-2 WRs. This has been an extremely run-heavy offense under QB Zach Wilson, but New York might throw it a bit more going forward without RB Breece Hall.

Jets HC Robert Saleh announced Friday that WR Elijah Moore won't play vs. the Broncos this weekend. Moore requested a trade earlier this week after going without a target in last week's win over the Packers. The Jets, as of now, say they're not trading him. We'll see where this goes. WR Denzel Mims is expected to replace Moore in the starting lineup on Sunday but isn't a viable fantasy play. WRs Garrett Wilson and Corey Davis get slight boosts with Moore out but remain uninspiring fantasy options in this run-heavy offense.

Jets WR Elijah Moore has asked the Jets for a trade, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Moore is "frustrated with his role and usage," per Rapoport. The Jets have gone run-heavy with QB Zach Wilson, resulting in just 8 targets for Moore over the past 3 weeks. Rapoport adds that the Jets have no plans to trade Moore -- which makes sense considering he's still on his rookie contract. A move out of New York would almost certainly be good news for Moore's fantasy value, but it doesn't sound like we should expect that to happen.

Jets HC Robert Saleh announced Wednesday that QB Zach Wilson has been medically cleared from the meniscus tear and bone bruise he suffered in his knee in mid-August. Barring a setback this week, Wilson will start Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. He shouldn't be in fantasy lineups, but we'll see what he means for New York's skill-position guys. QB Joe Flacco currently leads the NFL with 155 pass attempts but completed just 59% of them and averaged an ugly 5.8 yards per attempt. Wilson is certainly capable of beating those numbers.

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.
