Garrett Wilson Sees Nine Targets In Week 3 Loss

New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson secured five of his nine targets for 48 yards in a 15-10 loss to the New England Patriots. Wilson was once again the clear favorite target for quarterback Zach Wilson, but his fantasy output was disappointing given the volume of opportunities he received. Although Wilson is a special talent, trusting any weapons on New York's offense is difficult right now. The 23-year-old will be a WR3 or flex option for a Week 4 bout with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Garrett Wilson A Fantasy WR3 Against Patriots

New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson was able to salvage his Week 2 performance with a 68-yard touchdown, and will likely need another big play to have a strong fantasy showing against the New England Patriots in Week 3. Wilson was only able to secure two of his eight targets last week as many of his looks were uncatchable passes thrown by Zach Wilson. With Sunday's divisional matchup having the lowest projected point total of the week, it's difficult to rely on the young receiver to post significant fantasy production. That being said, Wilson has proven that he is talented enough to overcome his situation and can be started as a WR3 or flex option.

Garrett Wilson Has Been Cleared Of Any Injury

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said wide receiver Garrett Wilson has been cleared of any injuries after the Week 2 loss on the road to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Wilson went to the medical tent on the sidelines at one point on Sunday, but it's believed that he only had the wind knocked out of him. Despite working with quarterback Zach Wilson against one of the best defenses in the league, the 23-year-old pass-catcher hauled in two of his eight targets for 83 yards and a touchdown before getting banged up. His solid day for fantasy managers would have looked a lot different without the long touchdown, but Garrett Wilson now has 117 yards and two touchdowns in his first two games of 2023. He'll face another difficult matchup in Week 3 against the New England Patriots defense.

Garrett Wilson Scores Long Touchdown In Week 2

New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson finished with two receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in the team's 30-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The 23-year-old left late in the contest following a brief trip to the medical tent but head coach Robert Saleh later confirmed that he just had the wind knocked out of him. Wilson was clearly the favorite target of quarterback Zach Wilson, but the two only displayed chemistry in the second quarter when Wilson picked up over 50 yards after the catch to score on a short pass. The second-year wideout will continue to make highlight plays and post relevant fantasy performances but it's clear that his value has taken a massive hit with the season-ending injury to Aaron Rodgers (Achilles). Wilson will hope to get on the same page as his quarterback in a Week 3 divisional showdown with the New England Patriots.

Garrett Wilson - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson managed a solid fantasy showing with Zach Wilson at the helm in Week 1 and will hope to continue his success against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2. The 23-year-old is incredibly talented, but it's difficult to get excited about his fantasy outlook for the rest of the season without Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) under center. Although the Cowboys surrendered a fair amount of fantasy production to opposing wideouts in 2022, there are reasons to be concerned about how Zach Wilson will fare against a Dallas defense that just shut down the New York Giants. The second-year pro is still a viable fantasy option but should only be viewed as a low-end WR2 this week.

Garrett Wilson Makes Incredible Touchdown Catch In Divisional Win

New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson secured all five of his targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in a Week 1 victory over the Buffalo Bills. Wilson somehow came down with a circus catch on a three-yard touchdown pass from Zach Wilson that tied the contest with less than five minutes to play in the fourth quarter. With Aaron Rodgers (ankle) likely to miss significant time, Wilson may unfortunately struggle to pay off his ADP in the second round of fantasy drafts this season. There is, however, reason to be optimistic that Zach Wilson can improve on a disappointing 2022 campaign after a strong showing in the preseason. Fantasy managers should temper their expectations for the young wideout going forward but continue to start him as a WR2. A matchup against a stout Dallas defense is on tap for Week 2.

Garrett Wilson Can Be Trusted As WR1 In Season Opener

New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson is coming off of a stellar rookie campaign and will be looking to build upon his achievements in year two. His first opportunity to do so will come at home against the Buffalo Bills on Monday night. With Aaron Rodgers now under center, Wilson could establish himself as a dominant fantasy force early in 2023 as Buffalo surrendered the seventh-most PPR fantasy points per contest to wideouts last year. The 23-year-old displayed chemistry with his new quarterback in the preseason and is likely to be the focal point of New York's passing attack. Fantasy managers should have confidence deploying Wilson as a WR1 to open the season.

Garrett Wilson Shines In Preseason Victory

New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson secured all three of his targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in the team's 32-24 preseason win against the New York Giants. Wilson took the field for New York's first two drives and was clearly the favorite target of quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The duo's chemistry was on full display when Rodgers connected with Wilson on a dime for a 14-yard score. The second-year wideout is poised for a breakout season after finishing as the fantasy WR19 with below-average quarterback play in 2022. Fantasy managers should feel comfortable drafting Wilson in the second round as a low-end WR1 with upside.
