2023 Fantasy Outlook
Wilson was arguably the best wide receiver in 2022 from yet another strong rookie class, rivaled statistically by only college teammate Chris Olave, who also topped 1,000 yards in the confines of a substandard offense. Both now get QB upgrades, with the Jets finally completing a much-discussed trade for Aaron Rodgers in late April. Given his draft status and impressive rookie year, Wilson is locked in as the Jets' top receiver even after the team added friend-of-Rodgers Allen Lazard. The new addition came at the expense of Elijah Moore, whose standout 2021 rookie season was followed by a 2022 bust and a 2023 trade to Cleveland. Wilson, the 10th overall pick last spring, is highly unlikely to traverse the same path as Moore, coming off a rookie campaign with 1,103 yards and a 25 percent target share in 17 games while catching passes from Joe Flacco, Mike White and Zach Wilson. The upgrade to even a post-prime version of Rodgers sets up Wilson for big things in Year 2. Read Past Outlooks

Fine after neck injury Sunday
WRNew York Jets
January 8, 2024
Speaking with the media Monday, Wilson said his neck is fine after he was forced to leave Week 18's win over the Patriots, Connor Hughes of SNY.tv reports.
ANALYSIS
Wilson took a glancing blow to the head from New England safety Jabrill Peppers in the season finale and exited after 38 offensive snaps. The wideout underwent an evaluation for a concussion and was diagnosed with a neck issue. It doesn't sound like he's dealing with anything significant, and Wilson should have a normal offseason after catching 95 passes for 1,042 yards and three touchdowns this season. Wilson's 168 targets were the fourth most in the NFL, trailing only CeeDee Lamb (181), Davante Adams (175) and Tyreek Hill (171). Getting Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) back healthy for 2024 should provide a big boost to Wilson's efficiency and touchdown upside.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Great matchup but QB in flux
WRNew York Jets
December 21, 2023
Wilson will face a Commanders defense that has allowed a league-high 2,785 yards to wide receivers, but he may be catching passes from Trevor Siemian in Week 16, as Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports that Zach Wilson remains in concussion protocol Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
The Jets are hoping that Wilson the quarterback will be available after exiting in the first half of last week's loss to the Dolphins, but he'll have to clear concussion protocol to play Sunday against Washington. Wilson the receiver failed to get on the same page as Siemian, as he finished the Week 15 loss to Miami with a season-low four targets. After battling shutdown cornerback Jalen Ramsey in Miami, Wilson should have a much easier time getting open against the vulnerable Commanders secondary at home, though his ceiling would be lowered if Siemian's under center.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
Rookie wideouts have been responsible for some big fantasy seasons recently, but Wilson faces more of an uphill climb than the typical first-round pick, joining a team with a crowded WR room and an inaccurate, young quarterback. The hope is that Zach Wilson can be Josh Allen 2.0, and the Jets front office did its part to nudge the dream (fantasy?) toward reality this offseason, taking Wilson at 10th overall and RB Breece Hall at No. 36. They also re-signed Braxton Berrios, who may be limited to the No. 4 role if Wilson, Elijah Moore and Corey Davis stay healthy. Moore is the stronger breakout candidate following a big finish to his own rookie season, but it shouldn't shock anyone if Wilson ends up the alpha instead. He was good enough to earn playing time at OSU as a true freshman, notching 430 yards and five TDs, before cranking it up to average 93.7 receiving yards per game between his sophomore and junior seasons. His numbers were quite similar to those of OSU teammate Chris Olave, who went 11th overall to the Saints this April, and both ran sub-4.4 40-yard dashes at the combine as well. Wilson's 4.38 speed might leave him a half step behind Moore (4.35), but it should also put him a step ahead of most NFL defensive backs.
