Jets WR Garrett Wilson aims to rebound from a 2023 season that was high on volume and low on efficiency. He garnered 168 targets but tallied a poor 56.5% catch rate. Wilson also scored on only three of his 95 catches -- a 3.1% TD rate.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to be a full participant in OTAs later this month, HC Robert Saleh said. Rodgers is about eight months removed from his torn Achilles. "Once phase three hits, we're not anticipating any restrictions from what we can and can't do with him," Saleh said. It's been a smooth rehab for Rodgers by all accounts, and he should be ready to roll come Week 1. It's excellent news for WR Garrett Wilson, RB Breece Hall, and the rest of New York's skill-position players.

The Jets are signing WR Mike Williams to a one-year deal worth "up to" $15 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a desperately needed addition for the Jets, who were trotting out guys like Allen Lazard, Xavier Gipson, and Randall Cobb behind Garrett Wilson last year. Williams is coming off a late-September ACL tear but should be ready in plenty of time for the start of the 2024 campaign. He racked up 19 catches and 249 yards in just three games last year and averaged over 68 yards per game in both 2021 and 2022. The 29-year-old should still have plenty of gas left in the tank -- especially as New York's No. 2 WR. Williams should find enough volume even behind Wilson to have a shot at WR3-level fantasy production. And his arrival is excellent news for QB Aaron Rodgers, who's also seen his team bolster its offensive line this offseason.

Jets QB Zach Wilson (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. QB Trevor Siemian will presumably close out this Jets season that was doomed when QB Aaron Rodgers went down in the opener. Siemian isn't a fantasy option but has at least been peppering RB Breece Hall and WR Garrett Wilson with targets.

We wouldn't say that Jets QB Zach Wilson has been good for WR Garrett Wilson this season. But the QB's return to the lineup for Sunday's win over the Texans certainly looks like good news vs. the team's other options at the position. Garrett Wilson posted game highs in targets (14), receptions (9), and yards (108). The yardage also marked a season high, while the targets and catches matched his previous bests. In nine games now that Zach Wilson has started and finished, Garrett Wilson has averaged 11.3 targets, 6.3 receptions, 76 yards, 12.2 yards per catch and 6.76 yards per target. In the other four games, those numbers have been: 7.5 targets, 4.25 receptions, 34.3 yards, 8.1 per catch, and 4.57 per target. Zach Wilson hasn't become a trustworthy QB yet. But he's better for the team's lead wideout than Tim Boyle or Trevor Siemian. Garrett Wilson looks like a solid-to-good play for matchups with the Dolphins and Commanders the next two weeks. We'll see about a Week 17 visit to Cleveland.

The forecast for today's Texans-Jets game calls for a near 100% chance of rain. Winds will be at 10-15 mph with potential gusts of 30+. Tough conditions for the passing and kicking games. This over/under has dropped from 38.5 to 33.0. The Texans are implied for only 18.0 points. Check out the updated projections for this game.

Jets HC Robert Saleh announced Wednesday that he's going back to QB Zach Wilson as the starter for Week 14 vs. the Texans and for the rest of the season. Wilson was bad over the first 10 games of the season, completing 59% of his passes at 6.1 yards per attempt. But QBs Tim Boyle and Trevor Siemian combined for 5.2 yards per attempt on a 60.5% completion rate over the last two weeks. Consider Wilson's return a small upgrade for the Jets passing game. WR Garrett Wilson and RB Breece Hall, of course, remain the only viable fantasy starters in this offense.

A source tells NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is "unlikely" to play again this season. Rodgers got back on the practice field this week -- less than three months after tearing his Achilles. But the thought all along was that he'd only play again if the Jets were still in the playoff hunt. At 4-7, they'd likely need to win out to earn a postseason berth. So we'll be forced to watch more Tim Boyle or Zach Wilson or Trevor Siemian the rest of the way. Rodgers is at least on track to return to save WR Garrett Wilson and RB Breece Hall in 2024.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) has been designated to return from IR. It means he'll be back on the practice field this week. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said on Sunday that Rodgers is still targeting a Week 16 return -- but we remain skeptical that he'll play again this season for a Jets team without a realistic chance to make the playoffs. We'll keep you updated on the situation. If Rodgers does return, it'd be excellent news for the late-season fantasy prospects of RB Breece Hall and WR Garrett Wilson.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is still hoping to get back on the field for the Week 16 game against the Commanders, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. (What QB wouldn't want to play against that pass defense?!) There's a chance that Rodgers returns to practice this coming week, per Rapoport, although getting back on the practice field the following week is considered more likely. This is a bit of a surprise since earlier reports said Rodgers would only return if the Jets were in the playoff hunt. They have less than a 1% chance to make it after Friday's loss to the Dolphins, according to The New York Times' model. But Rodgers is obviously out to prove something with this return from a torn Achilles. And it'd be nice to build some positive momentum heading into 2024. Rodgers would be tough to trust in fantasy lineups if he does make it back. But it'd be excellent news for WR Garrett Wilson and RB Breece Hall's late-season fantasy value.

Jets QB Tim Boyle will start next weekend's game vs. the Falcons, HC Robert Saleh said Saturday. Why? We're not sure. Boyle was predictably bad in Friday's loss to the Dolphins, throwing for 179 yards, one TD, and two INTs. He was sacked seven times. Boyle at least connected with WR Garrett Wilson on seven of 10 attempts for 44 yards and a score. Volume will keep Wilson in the WR2/3 mix for Week 13.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson managed just two catches for nine yards in Sunday's 32-6 loss to the Bills. QB Zach Wilson was benched after throwing for just 81 yards through the game's first 42 minutes. QB Tim Boyle threw for only 33 yards the rest of the way. Wilson did lead the Jets with eight targets for a strong 27.6% share. But most of those targets had very little chance of actually being completed. Wilson, of course, has been producing solid fantasy numbers all season in spite of bad QB play. So we have to believe the elbow injury that had him questionable coming in played a part. We'll keep an eye on that this coming week, along with the Jets' plans at QB. It won't be pretty regardless of who's under center, but Wilson's talent plus volume should allow him to rebound. He gets a plus Week 12 matchup vs. the Dolphins, and the Jets have the eighth easiest WR schedule from Weeks 12 through 17.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson (elbow) is active for today’s game vs. the Bills. He was able to play through this issue last week but admitted on Friday that the elbow will be a factor today. It adds risk to Wilson’s Week 11 fantasy profile, but he still belongs in most fantasy lineups.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson told reporters on Friday that he'll play vs. the Bills this weekend, despite being listed as questionable with his elbow injury. "It's doing better," Wilson said. "I'm feeling good, so we're going to rock this weekend." But Wilson also admitted that the injury will limit him, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. We'll look for further updates on just how limited Wilson will be. For now, we're still expecting him to play a full slate of snaps. The elbow obviously adds risk, but Wilson still belongs in most fantasy lineups. He’s racked up 52 targets over his last four games.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Bills. He was able to play through this issue last week and got in three limited practices this week. HC Robert Saleh said Friday morning that Wilson still has "some hurdles to clear" but should be able to play this weekend. We'll keep you updated on Wilson's status. We won't get the Jets' inactives until a little before 3 pm ET on Sunday.

Update: Wilson told reporters Friday afternoon that he'll play this weekend.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson hauled 7 of 13 targets with 80 receiving yards on Monday night vs. the Chargers. Week 9 marks the sixth time that Wilson has gone for at least 10 PPR points in eight games played this season. For as putrid as the Jets’ offense has been at times this year, Wilson can be counted on to return at least flex-level value for fantasy managers. He’ll face a stingy Raiders defense (fifth-toughest WR matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed) in Week 10. Still, we can count on Wilson to hit paydirt.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson hauled 7 of 13 targets and put up a season-high 100 receiving yards on Sunday vs. the Giants. Through seven games, the second-year wideout has only failed to reach 10 PPR points twice. Even then, he totaled 9.8 (Week 3) and 8.4 (Week 5) in those outings. He's a model of consistency with a reasonably safe floor. Fantasy managers can confidently count on Wilson again next week vs. the Chargers.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson tallied 8 receptions for 90 yards in Sunday's win over the Eagles. His 12 targets accounted for 36.4% of QB Zach Wilson's total pass attempts. Wilson also consumed 42.1% of the team's receptions and 48.4% of the receiving yards. RB Breece Hall was the only other Jet with more than 24 receiving yards. TE Tyler Conklin checked in third with a 3-24 receiving line on 4 targets. No other Jet had more than 1 reception. That domination signals just how good Garrett Wilson is ... as well as the flimsiness of his situation. The Jets get a Week 7 bye, then favorable matchups with the Giants, Chargers, and Raiders.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson hauled 9 of 14 targets for 60 receiving yards in Week 4 vs. the Chiefs. Teammate Allen Lazard led the team in receiving with 61 receiving yards and a TD on 3 catches in the contest. It’s rare that multiple pass-catchers in the Jets offense pay off for fantasy purposes, but credit to QB Zach Wilson and company for putting forth a competitive effort in primetime. Next week’s game vs. the Broncos will be a good opportunity to build upon their successes.

Jets WR Garrett Wilson hauled in 5 catches on 9 targets for 48 receiving yards in Week 3 vs. the Patriots. There’s a realistic chance that he’s the only player on the Jets that can be useable for fantasy purposes at this point. This is a very anemic offense with QB Zach Wilson at the helm. We’ll see what they can put together in Week 4 against the Chiefs.
