Garrett Wilson, WR, NY Jets
Man. I’m starting to feel for Garrett Wilson, who I would not be surprised to hear asks for an offseason trade within the next two years.
Wilson finished with nine catches for 93 yards, including a few spectacular plays. He brought in an off-target throw from Zach Wilson on a deep cross and went for 41 yards on the team's first drive. He also gutted out a short slant late in the game, again off target, as he got rocked by a safety.
Wilson also made maybe the most costly mistake of the night. In a rare stroke of creativity, the Jets dialed up a double pass in the red zone where Wilson was supposed to throw to Lazard. Lazard got himself wide open, but Wilson, albeit dealing with an injury, threw it way out of bounds.
Yes, Wilson was dealing with a right arm injury, and then Hackett had him throw the ball with his injured arm, but as Wilson himself would say, the best players need to make the big-time plays. It was a rare scoring chance for the Jets, and they needed it to hit.
All in all, Garrett Wilson is now up to 55 catches for 642 yards and is on pace to top both 100 catches and 1,200 yards this year. He truly is a top receiver in the league and continues to show it week in and week out.
