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 WR Garrett Wilson exited in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Bengals after taking a shot to the ribs. He headed back to the x-ray room, according to insider Brian Costello. We'll update Wilson's status when we know more.

Update: Wilson is questionable to return with a knee injury, the team announced.

Update: Wilson returned in the 3rd quarter.

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.

ESPN’s Rich Cimini believes rookie WR Garrett Wilson will hold a “significant role” in 2022. “Even if he's not a starter, per se, he will be heavily involved in a four-man rotation at receiver,” Cimini shared. Wilson’s struggled with drops at parts of training camp, but he’s also flashed the dynamic ability that made him the 10th overall pick. He’s a fringe WR4 in fantasy drafts.

ESPN’s Rich Cimini writes that Jets WR Garrett Wilson “hit a lull when the pads went on.” Cimini noted the increased physicality from DBs during padded practices. Wilson isn’t the biggest WR; he weighed in at 183 pounds at the Combine, although the Jets list him at 6’0, 192. We’re ultimately not concerned about his play strength long-term, but it’ll be something to monitor.

Jets beat writer Connor Hughes gave a progress update on WR Garrett Wilson post-OTAs and minicamp. “This was a guy that didn't really know what he was supposed to do, or kind of knew what what he was supposed to do, and was trying to figure it out as he went," Hughes observed. He did call Wilson “the most physically gifted” WR on the roster and believes the rookie will benefit from his time off before training camp. Ultimately, we’re not alarmed by a slow start from the 10th overall pick. Only 22 (later this month), Wilson remains a candidate to pace this deep Jets WR corps in targets.

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.
