Jets QB Zach Wilson threw for 317 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's loss to the Lions. He completed just 18 of his 35 pass attempts (51.4%) and threw an INT. WR Garrett Wilson led the way with 9 targets, catching 4 for 98 yards. WR Elijah Moore finished 2nd in targets (7), catching 4 for 51 yards. WR Jeff Smith went 4-77 receiving on 5 targets. TE C.J. Uzomah snagged both of the team's TDs as his only 2 catches (on 2 targets). The Jets get upside matchups with the Jaguars and Seahawks the next 2 weeks. We'd still prefer not to trust Zach Wilson in fantasy football lineups, but they'll at least be good spots for his WRs.
The Jets do not plan on shopping QB Zach Wilson this offseason, and the former #2 pick remains in the team's long-term plans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The team views Wilson as an incredibly hard worker, a good teammate and very smart," Rapoport writes. "He has handled his demotions well and kept working." A decent trade offer could change the Jets' plans, of course. We'll see what else they do at QB this offseason. QB Mike White is set to hit free agency in March.
At the beginning of Thursday, Chris Streveler wasn't even on the Jets' active roster. By the end of the night, he was running the offense. The team pulled QB Zach Wilson in the 2nd half of Thursday night's loss to the Jaguars after watching him complete 9 of 18 throws or 92 yards and an INT. Streveler closed out the game with 90 more yards (but no turnovers) on 10-of-15 passing and accounted for most of the team's rushing yardage. The former Cardinals QB ran 9 times for 54 yards. We'll see who's behind center for the Jets in a Week 17 trip to Seattle. We'd bet HC Robert Saleh is currently praying to the nearest deity that Mike White will be healthy enough to play.
Jets QB Zach Wilson was benched in favor of QB Chris Streveler in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars. Wilson completed just 9 of 18 passes for 92 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT against a bad Jacksonville defense (albeit in less-than-ideal conditions). We'd be surprised if Wilson found his way back onto the field again this season. We'll see if QB Mike White can get cleared for Week 17. If not, Streveler and QB Joe Flacco are options.
Jets HC Robert Saleh confirmed on Tuesday that QB Zach Wilson will start Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars. QB Mike White (ribs) has still not been medically cleared. Wilson wound up compiling 317 yards and 2 TDs in last week's loss to the Lions -- but he completed just 51% of his passes, threw 1 INT and could have been picked off a few more times. Wilson remains a detriment to New York's offense. See where he and the Jets skill-position guys land in the Week 16 Rankings.
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.
