View QB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Wilson was overmatched as a rookie. In 13 starts, he mustered just 2,334 yards, 9 TDs and 11 INTs.
  • He finished as a QB1 twice — both from Week 13 on.
  • He simply wasn’t surrounded by top talent. LT Mekhi Becton appeared in only 1 game. Corey Davis, Elijah Moore and Jamison Crowder combined to miss 17 games.
  • Wilson suffered a Week 6 PCL (knee) sprain against New England. He didn’t return until Week 12.
  • First-year OC Mike LaFleur did supply high pass volume — N.Y. ranked 4th in team pass rate, due in part to regular deficits.
  • Wilson wasn’t efficient, though. He posted 6.1 YPA, a 55.6% completion rate and took sacks at a 10.3% clip, one of the highest league-wide.
  • His 54.8 PFF passing grade ranked 39th among 44 QBs with 100+ dropbacks.
  • Per Pro Football Reference, only 69.9% of his throws were charted as “on-target.” That ranked last among 33 qualifiers.
  • Wilson’s 2022 environment looks much improved. Moore should take a year 2 jump. And the Jets invested a Round 1 pick in refined OSU speedster Garrett Wilson.
  • Round 2 brought the arrival of 2-way RB Breece Hall. He’ll combine with Michael Carter to form a formidable 1-2 punch.
  • The Jets made TE upgrades — albeit unexciting ones — with the signings of C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Conklin.
  • New York’s OL remains suspect — but they at least addressed a guard spot with the signing of Laken Tomlinson.
  • Wilson added weight in the offseason, likely to help him withstand the pounding of an NFL season.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Wilson was entirely unreliable as a rookie, but he had legit excuses.

Those excuses are now gone in year 2.

Wilson enters year 2 in the same system with an exciting young group of weapons. There’s certainly a debate to be had about whether Wilson’s ready to take a significant jump. After all, he had just 1 year of premier production at BYU.

At cost, though, Wilson makes for a fine QB2 to pair with an elite-type in best ball. For standard leagues, it’s easy to see him entering the spot-start mix — especially once bye weeks arrive.

Mike White, QB NYJ

11:41am EST 11/23/22

White to start

The Jets have announced that QB Mike White will start Sunday's game against the Bears. The 5th-year player got the 1st 3 starts of his career for last season's Jets, entering for most of a 4th before that stretch. He completed 66.7% of his throws, averaging 238.3 yards and 1.3 TDs per game over that span. The bulk of his production came in a 405-yard, 3-TD outing against the Bengals. White proved particularly friendly to RB target shares, with Michael Carter drawing 16% target share in the 4 White games. Of course, that remains a small sample and not a signal that you should dramatically increase your Week 12 expectation for Carter. We're also not sure White boosts the fantasy outlook for anyone else on the offense. But a change from Zach Wilson can't hurt. The team is planning to make Wilson a healthy scratch and use Joe Flacco as the backup.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Jets HC Robert Saleh informed his team this morning that QB Zach Wilson won't start Sunday's game against the Bears. Schefter did not mention who will start in Wilson's place. The Jets' website currently lists Mike White as the backup, Joe Flacco as the #3 QB -- and Flacco has recently been a healthy scratch on game days. Flacco, of course, started the 1st 3 games this season while Wilson was out and posted bigger passing numbers on huge volume. He also completed just 58.7% of his passes as the team opened 1-2. White got 3 starts last year and threw for 405 yards and 3 TDs in his 1st outing, but then endured 2 lackluster losses. There's not a good option here, but we're happy to see the Jets not simply sticking with the status quo.

Jets WRs combined for only 64 yards in an ugly Week 11 loss to New England. Zach Wilson went just 9 of 22 for 77 yards in one of the worst displays of QB play you’ll find all year. A tough matchup with New England didn’t help, but there was simply nothing positive to takeaway here. Denzel Mims (2-35) led the team in receiving, while Elijah Moore (2-17) remained a part-timer (54% snap share). Most disappointingly, Garrett Wilson registered only 2 catches for 12 yards on 3 targets. This unit will look to rebound Sunday against Chicago. We’ll see if Wilson gets the nod under center.

Jets HC Robert Saleh would not commit to QB Zach Wilson as his Week 12 starter on Monday. “We’re keeping everything on the table," Saleh said. The Jets had been winning in spite of Wilson -- but that ended in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, when Wilson went 9 of 22 for 77 yards. He's completed just 55.6% of his passes this season, averaging 6.8 yards per attempt with 4 TDs and 5 INTs. Saleh wouldn't say whether he'd go with QB Joe Flacco or QB Mike White if Wilson is benched. None of those guys should be in your Week 12 fantasy plans, but Flacco or White would be at least a slight boost for New York's skill-position players.

Dynasty Write-up
Wilson struggled as a rookie, partly because of lackluster accuracy/decision making, partly because of an injury-plagued supporting cast. Elijah Moore and Garrett Wilson at least look like long-term building blocks. And Wilson showed enough as a rusher to forecast his legs as a future asset.
