Garrett Wilson, WR, NY Jets
It was a slightly disappointing day for Garrett Wilson, who finished with just three catches for 54 yards. Although Patrick Surtain II was shadowing him often, Wilson still fell well short of expectations against a far inferior defense.
He was targeted a team-high seven times still but brought in less than 50% of his targets, including the untimely interception on the final drive of the game. Although it was a poorly thrown ball, Wilson would agree he could have caught it.
Wilson seemed to find his groove last week when he caught nine passes for 60 yards on 14 targets. However, this was a step back for him.
Wilson is one of the top talents at his position around the league, and the Jets need to find more ways to get him the ball consistently. For him to only have 24 catches for 279 yards through five games is simply not enough.
One easy way to change this is for Wilson to have more easy opportunities on short-yardage throws instead of just consistent one-on-one fades down the field. He has only caught 24 of his first 43 targets. Getting him involved early and often will be key next week.
