QUARTERBACKS

Zach Wilson: Selected second overall in the 2021 draft, Wilson may be off the redraft radar outside of two-QB leagues, but his arm talent, mobility and improvisational skills could lead to some streaming potential as a rookie. In addition, Wilson may often find himself in a game script-positive situation for his weekly fantasy outlook. Meanwhile, Robert Saleh has described his preparation and study habits as being "light years ahead of normal rookies."

RUNNING BACKS

Tevin Coleman133.3553.22.8719.4153.20.8102.36

La'Mical Perine35.5143.80.837.452.40.330.1

Michael Carter: The Jets figure to employ a running back by committee approach and that could frustrate fantasy managers that roster Carter, who should be the 1(a) of that RBBC. The rookie out of UNC averaged 8.0 YPC as a senior and finished his collegiate career with 82 receptions.

Tevin Coleman: Injuries have limited Coleman during his two seasons with the 49ers as he has played only 36% and 6% of the offensive snaps in 2019 and 2020, respectively. That said, he brings with him knowledge of the system and familiarity with the coaches that Robert Saleh brought with him from San Francisco.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Corey Davis65.4871.14.6000147.41
Elijah Moore63.6774.33.82.210.60.03133.27
Jamison Crowder47.7536.42.61.15.10.0193.66
Keelan Cole37.6473.92.400080.59
Denzel Mims16.62421.600042.1
Braxton Berrios2.326.20.10004.37

Corey Davis: Davis had a career-best season in 2020 (65/984/5, 15.1 Y/R). Transitioning to a new offense with a new coaching staff and a rookie quarterback, Davis may be the team's WR1, but it will likely be difficult to improve upon last year's success.

Elijah Moore: Mostly aligning in the slot at Mississippi, Moore, the 34th-overall pick this year, broke A.J. Brown's single-season reception record last season. It would make sense for the Jets to part ways with Jamison Crowder, but Moore has the potential to excel both inside and out.

Jamison Crowder: With the Jets drafting Moore, many expected to the Jets to part ways with Crowder, who has since taken a massive pay cut. In his two seasons with the Jets, Crowder has averaged a receiving line of 4.9/54.7/0.43 on 7.54 targets per game.

TIGHT ENDS

Trevon Wesco2.728.20.20005.37

Chris Herndon: On a positive note, Herndon played a full 16-game season in 2020 after missing virtually all of 2019. That said, he was mostly a non-factor with an average receiving line of 1.9/17.9 and a total of three touchdowns.
