Heading into Week 9 fantasy football, make sure to sit New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa against the Miami Dolphins.
Unfortunately for the New York Jets, they’ve been without their star wide receiver Quincy Enunwa for a few weeks now. Dealing with an ankle injury, Enunwa at this point in time is listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s Week 9 matchup on the road against the Miami Dolphins. Should fantasy football owners take a chance on him this week?
In the grand scheme of things, no. It’s never a good idea to start a wide receiver that is coming back from injury, especially one that can hinder his performance on the gridiron with an ankle injury. Ideally, it’s best to sit Enunwa in Week 9 and find another wide receiver entering a favorable matchup.
It looks like Enunwa will be a game-time decision by head coach Todd Bowles but at the end of the day, it’s too risky to make such a start considering these next few weeks are crucial in fantasy football. Even if Enunwa plays, he will likely be in a limited role or not playing up to his usual high-caliber of play on the field.

The Jets are 3-5 at the midseason mark with their offense being one of their biggest areas of opportunities. Even with rookie quarterback Sam Darnold having a decent season so far under center, there is so much he can do with such lackluster talent around him.
Injuries have hit Darnold where it hurts the most as without Enunwa, he’s been struggling to get the job done. Darnold and Enunwa developed quick chemistry at the start of the season and due to this injury, things haven’t been the same on offense.
Expect much of the same this week as there aren’t many players on the Jets to get excited for when it comes to their fantasy football value. Just like last year and even the year before that, this will be another losing season for the Jets with a heavy list of things to fix on offense this upcoming offseason.
