Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Mims arrived as a Round 2 pick in the 2020 draft. At 6’3, 207 pounds, he boasts rare athleticism (4.38-forty, 38.5-inch vertical, 6.66-second 3-cone).
  • He suffered a hamstring injury in mid-August of 2020. He didn’t return to the field until early September, only to suffer another hamstring injury.
  • Mims returned in Week 7 and suited up for 9 games going forward. He caught only 23 of 45 targets, albeit for 15.5 YPC.
  • Poor coaching and QB play held him back. On the year, the Jets ranked dead last in total yards and points.
  • Swapping out HC Adam Gase and his coaching staff is an instant win. Bringing in OC Mike LaFleur — a Shanahan disciple — brings intriguing potential.
  • If the Shanahan principles remain, look for pre-snap motion and play-action passing to help open windows in the passing game.
  • Mims will have to battle for targets on an offense that includes Corey Davis, Jamison Crowder, rookie Elijah Moore and Chris Herndon. There’s at least a chance New York saves money and gets out of Crowder’s bloated contract.
  • Mims, however, is playing behind Keelan Cole in June OTAs. There's certainly time for Mims to leapfrog the veteran, though.
  • Rookie QB Zach Wilson projects as an instant upgrade on Sam Darnold, but we fully expect growing pains in year 1. His college tape at least showed a willingness to take shots downfield on 50/50 balls. Good news for Mims.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

If you’re drafting Mims, you’re hoping for his raw ability to shine. The guy looks like a WR1 from a size and athleticism perspective. Only 23, it’s quite possible we see a year 2 jump.

But what about opportunity? This new coaching staff has made it a priority to add pass catching talent, and a trio of Corey Davis, Elijah Moore and Jamison Crowder will be tough to crack. A Crowder departure would be huge for Mims, but he'll still need to overtake Keelan Cole.

If nothing else, the Baylor product is an enticing stash who’s available late in drafts.

Jets WR Denzel Mims will be a healthy scratch vs. the Patriots today, according to insider Brian Costello. Mims played just 3 snaps in the opener, so there's no fantasy impact here. Mims might be on the move before this year's trade deadline.

Jets WR Denzel Mims had a rough spring, working mostly with the 2nd and even 3rd-team offenses. But Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline hears that Mims has been much better lately, showing a better understanding of the new offense and producing on the field. He's "been the best receiver at camp in the past four days alongside Elijah Moore," Pauline writes, adding that Mims got reps with QB Zach Wilson and the 1st-team offense at a recent scrimmage. Pauline also reports that Mims dealt with food poisoning in June and lost 15 pounds -- which certainly explains some of his earlier struggles. This Jets WR corps remains fluid, so we'll monitor Mims and the rest of them in preseason action.

Jets WR Denzel Mims was working with the 3rd-team offense in Friday's practice, according to multiple reports. So in case you were still wondering whether the spring reports that he wasn't in line to start this season were true, here you go. As of now, it looks like Corey Davis and Keelan Cole will be the Jets' outside receivers, with Jamison Crowder and rookie Elijah Moore battling for the slot job. Mims isn't rosterable in redraft leagues.

Jets WR Denzel Mims returned to the team after leaving last week to deal with a family matter, insider Ralph Vacchiano reports. As long as Mims doesn't test positive for COVID, he'll play Week 15. Unfortunately, a matchup with the Rams will leave him outside fantasy-starter territory.

Jets WR Denzel Mims won't play against the Seahawks on Sunday after traveling home to Texas to attend to a family emergency, HC Adam Gase said. Mims has averaged 6 targets over the past 6 weeks, so it's a notable loss. WR Jeff Smith figures to replace Mims in the starting lineup but would be a desperation fantasy play. WRs Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman gets boosts with Mims out.
