Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa returns after an injury in 2017, looking to duplicate or surpass his numbers from 2016. So, what can fantasy football owners expect from him in 2018?  

Days before the New York Jets would start their first preseason game of 2017, it was announced that wide receiver Quincy Enunwa would be out the entire year. Enunwa was supposed to be a big part of the offense after having a breakout season.

Enunwa had 105 targets, was second on the team with 58 receptions, led the team with 857 yards and four receiving touchdowns. After the 2016 season, the Jets released both Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, hoping to give Enunwa more opportunities.

Enunwa was officially cleared to participate in training camp on July 28th. There was a damper quickly put on any excitement when the Jets announced on August 3rd that Enunwa would miss one to two weeks with a thumb injury.

Here is an early look at Enunwa’s projected stats for the upcoming season. Though depending on how much time Enunwa misses in training camp, there is a risk that whomever the team’s quarterback is going to be, they might build a better repour with the guys that are on the field.

The Jets unofficial wide receiver depth chart looked like this heading into the preseason; there are still question marks about a couple of the players, will Robby Anderson be suspended by the NFL for his off the field issues? How does Terrelle Pryor rebound from his injury in 2017?

With his injury concerns, it’s best to stay away from Enunwa to start the fantasy season, maybe adding him for bye weeks or as an injury replacement.  But, keep an eye on the Jets depth chart as the preseason progresses, because Enunwa is capable of putting up quality fantasy numbers if healthy and on top of the depth chart.
