QUARTERBACKS

Zach Wilson531315.93610.820.7114.3433158.41.32222.35

Zach Wilson: The second overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Wilson was a major disappointment as a rookie. The former BYU Cougar completed only 55.6% of his pass attempts, averaged 6.1 yards per attempt and threw more interceptions (11, 2.9%) than touchdowns (nine, 2.3%). On a positive note, the Jets used four picks in the first four rounds of this year's draft on offense. While it would be difficult to be much worse, how much of an improvement will we see from Wilson in his second season?

RUNNING BACKS

Breece Hall221961.46.332.7263.81.6186.27
Michael Carter92.9399.52.3237.9295.11.8113.13

Ty Johnson15.766.70.355.844.90.317.96

Breece Hall: As the focal point of Iowa State's offense, Hall rushed for 3,044 yards and 41 touchdowns while adding 59 receptions for 482 yards and five touchdowns over the past two seasons. Hall is a patient runner with outstanding vision and contact balance and he's a reliable receiver out of the backfield. Even though Michael Carter will remain involved as well, Hall should be drafted as an RB2 in fantasy drafts.

Michael Carter: Carter was one of the few bright spots in New York's offense last year, as he turned his 183 touches as a fourth-round rookie into 964 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns. With the team using the 36th overall pick on Hall, Carter becomes relegated to a change-of-pace role behind their new featured back, but he'll especially make an impact in the passing game.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Elijah Moore65.4855.94.68.362.30.42154.64
Garrett Wilson48.3646.83.66.240.30.31116.32

Denzel Mims2.433.20.20005.72
Jeff Smith2.127.40.20004.99

Elijah Moore: Moore missed the final five games of 2021, but he had 34 catches for 459 yards and five touchdowns on 51 targets over his final six games played as a rookie. During that stretch, only Justin Jefferson scored more fantasy points than Moore, who was fifth on a per-game basis over that time period. The Athletic's Zack Rosenblatt recently wrote, "Moore seems to have firmly established himself as this team's No. 1 receiver. He's in line for a big year."

Garrett Wilson: Wilson was my top-ranked receiver prospect in this year's draft class. Wilson has outstanding body control, ball skills and is dynamic after the catch.

Corey Davis: Davis had a breakout season in 2020 (65/984/5) that he parlayed into a three-year deal with the Jets. Missing roughly half of the season and plagued by poor quarterback play, Davis finished with 34/492/4 in nine games in his first season with the Jets. At this point, however, I'd prefer both Moore and Wilson over Davis in fantasy.

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Tyler Conklin31336.1200061.11
C.J. Uzomah29.6318.51.900058.05
Jeremy Ruckert9.497.70.600018.07

Tyler Conklin: Per NY Post's Brian Costello, Robert Saleh has recently said: "Conk is awesome. He's been fantastic for us. The whole [tight end] group really has been really good for us, but as far as he's concerned, just his ability on third down to create separation and win those one-on-one's and be a run blocker, he's an all-around tight end. He's been a pleasant surprise."

C.J. Uzomah: Uzomah set career highs in receptions (49), yards (493) and touchdowns (five) in his final season with the Bengals. Now with the Jets and in a less-potent offense, it's likely that his production declines year over year even if he leads the tight end group in snaps and production.
