Limited to blocking duties in 2020

Wesco didn't touch the ball in Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Patriots and finishes the season with a five-yard catch on two targets and one rushing attempt for no gain.

Analysis: The fullback and depth tight end worked almost exclusively in a blocking role and has just five touches through two NFL seasons. Wesco, whom the Jets selected in the fourth round of the 2019 draft, will likely remain on the roster next season but is unlikely to see his role grow much.

Back from IR

Wesco (ankle) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

Analysis: Wesco has resided on IR since suffering an ankle injury in Week 8 against the Chiefs. The second-year tight end should return to the lineup for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He'll slot in as the No. 3 tight end behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin.

Trending in right direction

The Jets designated Wesco (ankle) for a return from injured reserve Wednesday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Wesco has resided on IR since Nov. 9 with the ankle issue, as the team will have 21 days to activate him. Whether or not Wesco returns to the lineup shouldn't affect things from a fantasy perpsective, as he's caught one of two targets this season for five yards.

Moves to IR

The Jets placed Wesco on injured reserve Monday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Wesco has already been ruled out for Monday's game against the Patriots, and he'll aim to return Week 12 against the Dolphins. The Jets promoted Ross Travis from the practice squad to serve as the No. 4 tight end moving forward.

Unable to play MNF

Wesco (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game versus the Patriots, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Wesco's injury seemed to get worse as the week progressed, as he followed a LP/DNP/DNP practice course. The 2019 fourth-round pick contributes sparingly on offense, but the reps he does leave behind could go to veteran Daniel Brown.

Impact remains minimal

Wesco failed to haul in his only target in Sunday's 18-10 loss to Buffalo.

Analysis: Wesco has just one carry and one catch this season, as the fullback isn't a key component of New York's offense.

Gets first catch of season

Wesco caught his only target for one yard and rushed once for no gain in Sunday's 30-10 loss to Arizona.

Analysis: Wesco serves as both a depth tight end and a fullback, though he clearly didn't look comfortable with the ball in his hands when he took a 3rd-and-1 hand-off as the fullback and seemed to hesitate at the line of scrimmage rather than fall forward for the necessary yard. New York went on to turn the ball over on downs on the next play. On the bright side, Wesco also registered his first catch of the season.

Two catches in rookie year

Wesco failed to haul in his lone target in Sunday's 13-6 win over Buffalo.

Analysis: Wesco was thrown a jump ball in the front of the end zone, and while he used his body well to get inside position, he couldn't come down with the high pass. The fullback was a fantasy non-factor in his rookie season, catching two passes for 47 yards and adding a two-yard run.

Gets 32-yard reception

Wesco caught his lone target for 32 yards in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Steelers.

Analysis: Wesco caught the ball in the open field for the longest play of his young NFL career. It was just the rookie's second catch.

No targets in loss

Wesco played 29 snaps on offense (49 percent) but was not targeted during Thursday's 42-21 loss to the Ravens.

Analysis: Wesco also played 7 snaps on special teams (28 percent). The rookie fourth-round pick split reps at tight end evenly with Daniel Brown, but he didn't handle either of Sam Darnold's two targets to the position. Wesco has only been targeted once this season, Week 10 against the Giants, when he recorded one catch for 15 yards.
