Crowder caught four of six targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to Atlanta.
Analysis: Crowder trailed only Corey Davis (four catches for 45 yards on seven targets) in targets, and they shared the team lead in receptions. They are the two main weapons in the Jets' passing game, but quarterback Zach Wilson failed to reach the 200-yard passing mark in this one, so Crowder's prominent role doesn't automatically equate to fantasy success. Crowder and the Jets will be on bye in Week 6 as they travel back stateside following this loss in London.

Crowder (groin) caught seven of nine targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win over the Titans.
Analysis: Crowder made a major impact in his season debut, which coincided with the Jets' first win of the campaign. The veteran slot receiver paced the team in both catches and targets, immediately establishing a rapport with rookie quarterback Zach Wilson. Crowder's biggest contributions came on the Jets' game-tying drive early in the fourth quarter, when he hauled in a 29-yard pass to get down to the five-yard line before scoring from three yards out two plays later. Plenty of underneath work should be available for Crowder against the Falcons in London in Week 5.

Crowder (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Crowder will be making his 2021 debut Sunday after missing Week 1 due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols before sitting out the past two games due to the groin issue. The injury limited Crowder's activity in the Jets' first two practices of Week 4, but he upgraded to full participation Friday and should head into Sunday with few restrictions, if any. With Elijah Moore (concussion) and Jeff Smith (concussion) both ruled out for Sunday's contest, Crowder could immediately emerge as a top target out of the slot for rookie quarterback Zach Wilson.

Crowder (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans but is likely to play barring any setbacks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Crowder appears to be in line for his season debut after missing the Jets' first three games due to COVID-19 protocols and a groin injury. Schefter's report echoes that of several others earlier in the week that suggested Crowder was in line to play. With Elijah Moore (concussion) ruled out for the team's Week 4 contest, Crowder should handle his typical slot role and could quickly become a favorite target of rookie quarterback Zach Wilson.

Crowder (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
Analysis: Crowder logged his first full practice of the season Friday after limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday, providing further evidence that the team expects the slot receiver to make his season debut Sunday, as reported by Rich Cimini of ESPN.com. The Jets' leading receiver from each of the past two seasons will come back just as Elijah Moore and Jeff Smith exit the lineup, both due to concussions.
Oct 1, 2021 12:35 PM EST
Coach Robert Saleh said Crowder (groin) is "looking good" to play Sunday against the Titans, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Analysis: The 28-year-old returned to practice as a limited participant Wednesday and Thursday, and he appears on track to make his season debut this weekend after missing the first three games of the year. Crowder's status will receive additional clarity when the Jets release their official injury report later Friday
Oct 1, 2021 8:01 AM EST
Crowder (groin) remained limited at practice Thursday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: With back-to-back limited sessions under his belt, Crowder is trending toward a return to action Sunday against the Titans, per Cimini. Meanwhile, fellow WRs Elijah Moore and Jeff Smith are dealing with concussions and have yet to practice this week. Look for Friday's final injury report to reveal whether Crowder heads into the weekend listed as questionable, or minus a Week 4 injury tag.
Sep 30, 2021 2:09 PM EST
Crowder (groin) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.
Analysis: Coach Robert Saleh previously noted that Crowder -- who didn't practice last week -- is trending toward a return to action Sunday against the Titans. If so, he'll move back into a slot role for the Jets and provide the team's Week 4 WR corps with some welcome depth, given that both Elijah Moore and Jeff Smith are dealing with concussions.
Sep 29, 2021 3:18 PM EST
Coach Robert Saleh relayed Wednesday that Crowder (groin) is trending toward a return to action Sunday against the Titans, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: In the event that Crowder is able to suit up this weekend, he'd be in line to reclaim a share of the Jets' slot duties, with Braxton Berrios a candidate to see decreased snaps in such a scenario. Also in the team's WR wideout mix are Corey Davis, Keelan Cole and Elijah Moore.
Sep 29, 2021 9:37 AM EST
Crowder (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Analysis: With another absence on tap this week, look for Braxton Berrios to continue to fill in for Crowder in the slot for the Jets, while Elijah Moore and Corey Davis continue to remain key cogs in the team's Week 3 WR corps.
Sep 26, 2021 11:44 AM EST
Crowder (groin) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game in Denver, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Crowder was unable to practice at all this week and is more than likely headed for a third consecutive absence to open the season. Braxton Berrios should continue to fill Crowder's shoes in the slot as the Jets try to pick up their first win of the season against the 2-0 Broncos.
Sep 24, 2021 2:04 PM EST
Coach Robert Saleh said Crowder (groin) is expected to be a game-time decision for Sunday's game at Denver, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Analysis: The Jets have yet to release their updated injury report, but it appears Crowder will receive the questionable tag after being a non-participant at practice Wednesday and Thursday. The 28-year-old was expected to make his last Sunday against the Patriots, but he was inactive for the second straight contest since the groin injury flared up late in the week.
Sep 24, 2021 7:53 AM EST
Crowder (groin) didn't practice Thursday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Analysis: Crowder seems headed toward a third consecutive absence to open the season, though an official injury designation for Sunday's game against the Broncos won't come in until Friday. If Crowder sits, Braxton Berrios -- who has 12 catches for 124 yards through two games -- should continue to man the slot for the Jets.
Sep 23, 2021 1:25 PM EST
Crowder (groin) didn't practice Wednesday.
Analysis: Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York previously relayed that coach Robert Saleh indicated that the Jets are hoping to work Crowder back into the mix this week, but with an absence logged Wednesday, the Jets' slot man now has just two more opportunities to participate in practice in advance of Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Sep 22, 2021 2:13 PM EST
Coach Robert Saleh indicated Wednesday that the Jets are hoping to work Crowder (groin) back into the mix this week, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Analysis: Crowder ended up being a surprise scratch for this past Sunday's game against the Patriots after his injury flared up Friday. It remains to be seen if he'll be able to practice Wednesday, but a showing, in any capacity, would be a step in the right direction relative to his potential availability for this weekend's contest against the Broncos.
Sep 22, 2021 9:28 AM EST
Coach Robert Saleh indicated that Crowder's groin injury flared up Friday, leading to the receiver sitting out Sunday's loss to the Patriots, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: It remains to be seen if the setback was a minor one, but more should be know about Crowder's Week 3 status no later than Wednesday, when the Jets' first injury report of the week is released. If Crowder is out or limited next Sunday against the Broncos, added slot opportunities would be available for Braxton Berrios and Elijah Moore.
Sep 19, 2021 2:26 PM EST
Crowder (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Analysis: Reports leading up to game day suggested Crowder would be ready to make his season debut Sunday after he sat out Week 1 due to a positive COVID-19 test, but the wideout's groin injury will ultimately result in him missing a second straight game. Crowder was a limited participant in the Jets' final two practices of Week 2, so he may need to increase his activity next week to have a better chance at gaining clearance for the Jets' Sept. 26 game in Denver. With Crowder sidelined this weekend, Braxton Berrios should see more work out of the slot after hauling in five of seven targets for 51 yards in the Week 1 loss to the Panthers.
Sep 19, 2021 8:35 AM EST
Crowder (groin) is expected to play Sunday against the Patriots, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Since being activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list, Crowder practiced in a limited fashion Thursday and Friday due to a groin issue, after which coach Robert Saleh expressed optimism about the Week 2 status of both Crowder and Keelan Cole (knee), per Rich Cimini of ESPN.com. Confirmation of Crowder's availability will arrive before the first wave of games Sunday, with the Jets kicking off at 1:00 ET.
Sep 19, 2021 4:27 AM EST
Crowder (groin) remained limited in practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against New England, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Crowder has logged a pair of limited sessions since coming off the reserve/COVID-19 list. Cimini adds that coach Robert Saleh sounded optimistic about the slot receiver's chances of making his season debut Sunday, but a final decision on Crowder's status likely won't come down until just before kickoff. Fellow Jets receiver Keelan Cole (knee) will also be a game-time decision.
Sep 17, 2021 1:21 PM EST
Crowder, who has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list, logged a limited practice Thursday due to a groin injury, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Analysis: Prior to landing on the COVID-19 list, Crowder had been managing a groin issue, so it's possible that Thursday's limitations were precautionary. Meanwhile, fellow WR Keelan Cole (knee) was also limited Thursday, which sets the stage for Friday's practice to be key with regard to the health/availability of the team's wideout corps as Sunday's game against the Patriots approaches.
