Thriving with White at QB

Wilson caught eight of 15 targets for 162 yards and threw an incomplete pass in Sunday's 27-22 loss to Minnesota.

Analysis: Wilson bounced off a tackle attempt and scampered downfield for a 60-yard gain early in the fourth quarter, but he stepped on the sideline at the 11-yard line, preventing him from coming away with a 71-yard touchdown on the play. The Jets had to settle for their fifth field goal of the game to cap that possession, cutting Minnesota's lead to 20-15. Wilson also had a chance to throw the ball on a trick play, but he wisely threw it away after Minnesota sniffed it out. The rookie first-round pick has been tremendous since the Jets upgraded from Zach Wilson to Mike White under center, racking up 257 yards and two touchdowns in White's two starts. He'll look to keep rolling in Week 14, when the Jets will try to sweep the season series against the Bills.

Two TDs in White's debut

Wilson caught five of eight targets for 95 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-10 win over the Bears. He added one rushing attempt for minus-1 yard.

Analysis: Wilson showed immediate chemistry with new starting quarterback Mike White, catching three of four targets for 32 yards on the opening drive, including an eight-yard touchdown. The pair hooked up again in the second quarter for a 54-yard touchdown, on which Wilson showed off his shiftiness after the catch. At least for one game, White looked like a considerable upgrade over Zach Wilson under center, which has the rookie wide receiver's arrow pointing up ahead of a Week 13 matchup with a leaky Minnesota secondary.

Held to 12 yards in Week 11 loss

Wilson caught two of three targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 10-3 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: Both offenses struggled on a windy day in Foxborough, but New York's passing game was particularly ineffective, as quarterback Zach Wilson completed only nine of 22 passes for 77 yards. This was the second-lowest yardage total of Wilson the receiver's career, and it came just three weeks after the rookie first-round pick racked up a career-high 115 yards against this same opponent. New York's entire offense has nowhere to go but up in Week 12 at home against a far more generous Chicago defense.

Will remain top dog as Davis sits

Wilson is in line for another game as New York's clear No. 1 wide receiver with Corey Davis (knee) having been ruled out for a third straight game, Ethan Greenberg and John Pullano of the Jets' official site report.

Analysis: Wilson has thrived since Davis went down, racking up 115 yards in Week 8 and 92 receiving yards in Week 9 prior to the Jets' Week 10 bye. The 115-yard game came against the Patriots, whom the rookie first-round pick will face again Sunday, this time on the road.

Eight catches in Week 9 win

Wilson caught eight of nine targets for 92 yards and added a seven-yard run in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Bills.

Analysis: No other Jet had more than 16 receiving yards, as Wilson monopolized opportunities in the passing game with his ability to get open and shiftiness after the catch. He made a rookie mistake when the ball came out of his hands as Wilson turned to run after pump faking on a trick play, but Wilson was able to dive on top of it and avoid disaster on a drive that culminated in James Robinson's go-ahead touchdown. Wilson has 207 receiving yards over the past two weeks, but he may cede some targets to Corey Davis (knee) after New York's Week 10 bye.

Retaining WR1 role in Week 9

Wilson will continue serving as New York's No. 1 wide receiver Sunday against the Bills, as Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports that Corey Davis (knee) has been ruled out.

Analysis: Wilson thrived in the lead role with Davis sidelined for the team's Week 8 loss to the Patriots, notching a career-high 115 receiving yards. As heavy home underdogs against the AFC East rival Bills, the Jets could be forced into a pass-heavy game plan, which would further benefit Wilson's volume against a tough Buffalo secondary that could be getting cornerback Tre'Davious White (knee) back for this one.

Career-high 115 yards in Week 8

Wilson caught six of seven targets for a game-high 115 yards in Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: With Corey Davis (knee) sidelined, Wilson was the Jets' go-to wide receiver, but tight end Jack Conklin scored both of the team's touchdowns. Wilson's 54-yard catch in the first quarter set up a field goal for the game's first points, and the rookie first-round pick set a new career high in receiving yards. Wilson's chemistry with quarterback Zach Wilson continues to improve heading into a Week 9 clash with the Bills.

Team's clear WR1 in Week 8

Antwan Staley of the New York Daily News expects the Jets to rely more on Wilson against the Patriots on Sunday with Corey Davis (knee) sidelined.

Analysis: Wilson leads the Jets in catches (28) and targets (52), but Davis is the team leader in receiving yards with 351 entering Week 8. The two share the team lead in receiving touchdowns with two apiece. With Davis sidelined, Elijah Moore, Braxton Berrios and Denzel Mims could all see more targets behind Wilson as well.

Oct 28, 2022 10:51 AM EST


Four catches in Week 7

Wilson caught four of five targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 16-9 win over Denver.

Analysis: Elijah Moore (personal) didn't play and Corey Davis left early due to a sprained MCL, allowing cornerback Patrick Surtain and the Denver defense to focus on Wilson, especially after running back Breece Hall (knee) exited. Wilson has been quiet during the Jets' four-game winning streak, but New York could be forced into a more pass-heavy approach in Hall's absence, which may lead to more targets for Wilson in Week 8 against the Patriots.

Only one catch

Wilson caught one of five targets for eight yards in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Packers.

Analysis: Wilson struggled to make an impact against a talented group of Packers cornerbacks. While his output comfortably marked a career low, the rookie saw quarterback Zach Wilson pass for merely 110 yards overall Sunday. The first-round wideout and the Jets will look to make a bigger impact through the air in Week 7 versus the Broncos.

Oct 16, 2022 2:39 PM EST


Three catches in Week 5 win

Wilson caught three of four targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 40-17 win over the Dolphins.

Analysis: Wilson was quiet for the second time in as many Zach Wilson starts at quarterback, though that was the case for all of New York's wide receivers in this one, as the Jets trampled Miami with five rushing touchdowns. The rookie first-round pick could benefit from a more pass-heavy game script in Week 6 against the Packers, but Wilson's usage will likely continue to ebb and flow in a New York offense with a lot of mouths to feed.

Oct 9, 2022 3:30 PM EST


Quiet with Zach Wilson under center

Wilson caught two of six targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 24-20 win over the Steelers.

Analysis: Quarterback Zach Wilson made his return from a knee injury and featured familiar targets Corey Davis (74 yards, one touchdown) and Elijah Moore (53 yards) over the rookie first-round pick. Wilson the receiver still made an impact by helping to set up the first of New York's two fourth-quarter touchdowns with a 35-yard catch, but he'll look to improve his chemistry with the other Wilson -- no relation -- in Week 5 against the Dolphins.

Oct 2, 2022 3:38 PM EST


Six catches in Week 3

Wilson caught six of 10 targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 27-12 loss to the Bengals.

Analysis: Wilson set up a field goal with a 23-yard catch on the Jets' first drive but left the game early in the second quarter after taking a shot to the ribs. The rookie first-round pick was rolling around in pain after the play but managed to return to the game in the second half and finished second on the team in receiving yards behind tight end Tyler Conklin (84). Wilson has been the favorite target for veteran Joe Flacco, but it remains to be seen how his fantasy outlook will be affected by the expected return of starting quarterback Zach Wilson (knee) in Week 4 against the Steelers.

Sep 25, 2022 2:01 PM EST


Back in action Sunday

Wilson (ribs) has returned to Sunday's game against the Bengals, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Wilson caught all four of his targets for 46 yards before leaving the contest in the first half, but he came out of halftime ready to go. He'll look to continue his strong game in the second half.

Sep 25, 2022 12:04 PM EST


Injures ribs Sunday

Wilson was forced out of Sunday's game against the Bengals with a rib injury.

Analysis: Prior to leaving the game, Wilson caught all for of his targets for 46 yards. In his absence, Elijah Moore and Corey Davis are in line to head the Jets' Week 3 WR corps.

Caps breakout game with winning TD

Wilson caught eight of 14 targets for 102 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-30 win over the Browns. He also rushed once for minus-2 yards.

Analysis: Wilson tied the game at seven with his first NFL touchdown in the second quarter, scoring from two yards out. He stayed down clutching his back after an awkward landing in the second half, but he promptly returned to the game and continued adding to his breakout performance. Wilson led the Jets in catches, targets and receiving yards, but he saved his biggest play for last, scoring the game-winning 15-yard touchdown over the middle in the final minute. The rookie first-round pick has quickly emerged as the favorite target for Joe Flacco, who's expected to continue filling in for Zach Wilson (knee) under center in Week 3 against the Bengals.
