NY Jets to start with confidence

  • Garrett Wilson

The all-time record holder for most receiving yards by a Jets WR in their rookie season Garrett Wilson will spend these next four games putting the icing on what has been a fantastic performance this year.

All he needs is 132 yards to be the first Jets draft pick in 15 years to have 1,000 yards in a season with the team and it's possible he gets all 132 this Sunday.

Last week, the Vikings' top target Justin Jefferson amassed 223 yards against the Lions, who've let the opposing team's WR1 get 96+ yards in four straight games.

I was all in on Wilson getting 132+ yards this Sunday and reaching 1,000 yards but I'm significantly less certain of that now. Of course, when the passing offense averages 182.7 yards, 132 is a pretty big chunk to be going to one person — which would be fairly unprecedented.

Now, of course, Wilson has had 115 yards in a game with Zach as his QB before, but let's do another breakdown like the one with Elijah Moore:

  • Non-Zach Wilson as QB: 6.16 catches per game, 10.5 targets per game, 91.5 yards per game, 4 TDs
  • Zach Wilson as QB: 3.7 catches per game, 5.4 targets per game, 45.57 yards per game, 0 TDs


Start with confidence? Definitely. But his ceiling isn't as high, and unfortunately, I've been forced to rescind my touchdown guarantee with him. In half-PPR, seven catches for 95 yards is good for 13 points, not bad!

Hopefully, he can get more for you — good luck!
