The Jets added Baylor WR Denzel Mims in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The 6’3, 207-pounder blew up the Combine, clocking a 4.38-second 40 time and registering marks in the 84th percentile or better in the vertical, broad and 3-cone. Mims finished with a 95th percentile SPARQ score. That athleticism shows up on tape. He has explosive acceleration, plus speed and excellent body control to reel in off-target throws. Mims broke out with a 61-1,087-8 line as a 19-year-old sophomore in 2017, took a step back to 55-794-8 in 2018 but rebounded to tally 66 catches, 1,020 yards and 12 TDs last year. The biggest knocks against him are inconsistent hands and a limited route tree. Mims dropped 13% of his catchable targets over the past 2 seasons. And over 46% of his targets and nearly 45% of his yardage last year came on ‘go’ and ‘hitch’ routes, according to Pro Football Focus. “He’s got vertical speed, he does have tracking skills and he understands how to use his size in the red zone,” an anonymous scout told The Athletic’s Bob McGinn. “He’s going to need a lot of work on how to run routes … He’s got inconsistent hands. He’s going to need work on how to get off press.” This is a strong value pick for the Jets, though — and a nice landing spot for Mims. He has a shot to earn a significant 2020 role alongside Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman. And Mims could emerge as QB Sam Darnold’s long-term #1 WR.
Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee) is listed as doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Ravens. He's averaged 5.3 targets per game this season, so his absence opens up a few extra looks for WRs Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder.
Jets WR Jamison Crowder (knee) isn’t listed on the final Week 8 injury report. He was limited in Thursday’s practice but put in a full workout on Friday. QB Sam Darnold’s collapse this past Monday night adds risk to Crowder’s fantasy outlook — but he’s seen 34 targets in Darnold’s 3 starts this season.
Jets WR Jamison Crowder was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with a knee. We don't have any other details on the situation. Check back tomorrow for an update on Crowder's status for this weekend's game vs. Jacksonville.
Jets QB Sam Darnold (mono) has been cleared to play, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. So he'll return for Sunday's game against the Cowboys after missing the last 3 games and 4 weeks. It's obviously a huge boost to a Jets passing game that had been forced to turn to QB Luke Falk. Darnold's return puts WRs Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder back on the fantasy radar, although we'd still try to take a wait-and-see approach with this passing game for now.
Jets HC Adam Gase announced Thursday that QB Sam Darnold will miss "multiple games" with mono. So consider him out at least for Monday night's game vs. the Browns and Week 3 against the Patriots. The Jets have a Week 4 bye. That leaves QB Trevor Siemian as New York's starter. The 27-year-old completed just 59.3% of his passes with 6.8 yards per attempt in Denver across 2016 and 2017. He spent last year backing up Kirk Cousins in Minnesota. Siemian completed 78% of his passes this preseason but averaged a pathetic 4.9 yards per attempt. This is obviously a major downgrade for the Jets passing game. We'd try to avoid WRs Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder in Week 2 fantasy lineups.
The Patriots have traded WR Demaryius Thomas to the Jets in exchange for a 2021 6th-round pick, ESPN's Adam Schefter. New England didn't have much of a need for Thomas after adding Antonio Brown to Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon. We'll see how Thomas fits into a Jets WR corps topped by Robby Anderson, Jamison Crowder and Quincy Enunwa, but we're not expecting much fantasy value. Thomas is at least familiar with HC Adam Gase's offense after spending 2010-2014 with him in Denver.
HC Adam Gase's Dolphins were the slowest-paced offense in the NFL from 2016-2018, running a play once every 29.8 seconds of game clock, according to ESPN Stats & Information. But Gase wants to get back to more of the uptempo attack he ran in Denver, when his Broncos snapped it every 25.3 seconds -- 3rd fastest. We've noticed the Jets playing faster this preseason and discussed it on the latest podcast. QB Sam Darnold is a fan. "That got me excited because I've been in an offense where last year was more slow-paced," he said. "In high school and college, I was in those fast-paced, no-huddle offenses. I just kind of felt more comfortable doing that kind of stuff. It's going to be a lot of fun this year." A faster pace means more plays. And more plays mean more fantasy points. The Jets offense -- and the passing game in particular -- looks set to exceed expectations this season.
The Athletic's Connor Hughes expects Jets WR Jamison Crowder to be a "reception animal" this season and believes he could "creep near or past 100 catches." We'll comfortably bet the under there -- but the takeaway is that Crowder is in line for big volume. "He and [QB Sam] Darnold found chemistry the moment they stepped on the field together," Hughes writes. "They see plays the exact same way, which helps the two connect when things break down." In the Jets' preseason opener, Darnold targeted Crowder on 2 of his 5 passes, completing both for 31 yards and a score. Crowder looks like a big value at his recent 14th-round ADP.
Just a day after leaving practice with a left foot injury, Jets WR Jamison Crowder gained clearance Tuesday to return, The Associated Press reports. The Jets didn't practice Tuesday, but the team tweeted that Crowder is expected to return to the field Wednesday.
Jets WR Jamison Crowder left Monday's practice with a left foot injury. HC Adam Gase said afterward that the wideout was headed for an MRI. We'll see about the extent of the injury. Crowder lost time the past 2 seasons to a high-ankle sprain and hamstring trouble.
The Jets have reached a deal with WR Jamison Crowder, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's not a great landing spot for Crowder's 2019 fantasy upside. The Jets already have WRs Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa in place, along with 2nd-year TE Chris Herndon. But Crowder disappointed big time in 2018, so things can't get much worse. His departure from Washington -- where HC Jay Gruden had expressed interest in re-signing him -- leaves targets for a WR corps that figures to rely on Josh Doctson and Trey Quinn, among others. Jets QB Sam Darnold, meanwhile, heads into his 2nd season with a solid-looking crew of pass-catchers.
Update: Crowder reports it's a 3-year pact worth $28.5 million, including $17 million guaranteed.
Redskins WR Trey Quinn (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game against the Eagles. WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) is active for the 1st time since Week 5. He should step back in as Washington's slot receiver but should only be in consideration in 1-game DFS contests.
Redskins WRs Jamison Crowder and Trey Quinn are listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Eagles with their ankle injuries. Both guys were limited in practice all week. We're expecting Quinn to play, but his role would be uncertain if Crowder returns for this one. Neither guy can be trusted in fantasy lineups with the late kickoff.
Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) is out for this weekend’s game against the Texans. Maurice Harris will continue operating as Washington’s slot receiver and is a low-end WR3 play in PPR leagues.
Washington WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) was ruled out of Sunday's game vs. Tampa Bay. Crowder hasn't suited up since Week 5, and his absence boosts the deep league value of Maurice Harris and Josh Doctson.
Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bucs after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Crowder has been out since Week 5 and wasn’t very productive before going down. He shouldn’t be in your Week 10 fantasy plans. Crowder’s return, though, would push WR Maurice Harris to the outside, where the Bucs have actually been a slightly negative matchup.
Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) put in a limited practice on Thursday -- his 1st since going down back in Week 5. It gives him a shot to play against the Bucs this weekend. We'll get another update tomorrow.
Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) missed another practice on Wednesday. That doesn't bode well for his chances of returning for this weekend's game against the Bucs. Crowder's absence would leave WR Maurice Harris in the slot, where he'd be a low-end PPR option vs. a Tampa defense that's allowed the most PPR points to slot receivers.
