Mike Williams On Track For August Activation

Tuesday, June 11, 4:24 PM

New York Jets wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) will likely be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list when teams are required to do so in late July, but head coach Robert Saleh said Williams is on a similar recovery timeframe as Breece Hall from last season, who was activated off the PUP list in mid-August. This is good news for the New York offense that desperately needs wide receiver help behind Garrett Wilson. Williams suffered a torn ACL in Week 3 of last season, meaning he could realistically be ready for Week 1. That said, it could take a few weeks for the former Chargers first-round pick to get into game shape. The 29-year-old has been an up-and-down fantasy option for most of his career, and it'll likely be more of the same in his first season with Gang Green. He's an attractive asset in best ball formats, but fantasy managers should expect down weeks in "start 'em, sit 'em" leagues.

Garrett Wilson Ready To Put His Worst Year Behind Him

Wednesday, July 3, 7:35 PM

New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson is ready to put a rough season behind him and bounce back in a big way this fall. According to Rich Cimini of ESPN, Wilson expressed that during the offseason, he had to "Get my feet back under me and my head right." The Ohio State product was very frustrated at the conclusion of last season and even referred to it as "The worst year of my life." In 2023, Wilson posted his second consecutive 1000-yard season, but the poor play of the Jets hurt his confidence and caused great frustration, which was often shown in public. Over his first two seasons in New York, Wilson caught passes from six different quarterbacks, which greatly affected his rhythm and ability to develop. The 23-year-old will have a great opportunity to enjoy a big season with a healthy Aaron Rodgers throwing to him, which makes him a consensus first-round selection in all drafts this summer and a strong candidate to finish near the top among all receivers.
