Shark Bites

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 got an early start with personal trainer Chad Marr in Texas this offseason. "He was here so early he was training with my major league ball players," Marr told the New York Post, adding that the football players don't normally join his sessions until after the Super Bowl. "Denzel was here long before that." Marr says Mims has added muscle while also slimming his frame after losing "quite a bit of size" amid bouts with food poisoning and COVID-19 last year. "It's really hard to come back from all of that during a season," Marr said. "We spent a considerable amount of time, about six weeks, just making him feel good." The trainer (of course) says Mims will "just tear it up" this year. We'd obviously expect his personal trainer to project such things for his client. And after catching just 31 passes through his 1st 2 NFL seasons, Mims has to prove he's worth any fantasy attention. He's a near-free shot to take as a dynasty stash or deep-league watch player, though. We'll see what coaches have to say about the wideout as we get into team workouts and then training camp.

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 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.
