Fine after neck injury Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-08

Speaking with the media Monday, Wilson said his neck is fine after he was forced to leave Sunday's Week 18 win over the Patriots, Connor Hughes of SNY.tv reports.

Wilson took a glancing blow to the head from Jabrill Peppers in the season finale, exiting after playing just 38 offensive snaps. Wilson underwent 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 on 168 targets this season. Wilson's 168 targets were the fourth-most in the NFL, trailing only CeeDee Lamb, Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill. Getting Aaron Rodgers (Achilles') back healthy for 2024 will be huge for Wilson's efficiency and touchdown upside.

Leaves finale with neck injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Wilson cleared concussion protocol but exited Sunday's 17-3 win over the Patriots with a neck injury, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. He caught two of five targets for 34 yards, bringing his season totals to 95 catches for 1,042 yards and three touchdowns on 168 targets.

Wilson dressed in all 17 games for the second consecutive season, but the 2022 first-round draft pick took a modest step back after racking up 1,103 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie. Poor quarterback play once again held Wilson back, as Aaron Rodgers tore his Achilles just four plays into the season, paving the way for a combination of Zach Wilson, Tim Boyle and Trevor Siemian to share the workload under center for the Jets. Wilson will have plenty of time to recover from his neck injury in the offseason, and his production could benefit significantly in 2024 if Rodgers is able to play near his pre-injury level.

Undergoing concussion evaluation

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Wilson has exited Sunday's game against the Patriots to be evaluated for a concussion, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports.

Wilson sustained a hard hit to the head when Patriots safety Jabrill Peppers collided with him following an incomplete pass in the third quarter. The second-year wideout has helped off the field before being taken to the locker room, per Rich Cimini of ESPN.com. Wilson exited the game with two catches (on five targets) for a team-high 34 receiving yards. With the Jets already eliminated from playoff contention, it's likely that the team will take every precaution with the 2022 first-round pick, who came into Sunday's action with 93 receptions for 1,008 yards and three touchdowns this season.

Modest numbers in Week 17 loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-28

Wilson brought in five of 10 targets for 50 yards in the Jets' 37-20 loss to the Browns on Thursday night. He also netted minus-1 yard on his only carry.

Wilson led the Jets in receiving yards and targets, although that didn't add up to much in terms of fantasy production. The talented receiver was once again the victim of a heavy dose of dink-and-dunk passing by Trevor Siemian, who averaged only 5.8 yards per attempt. Wilson did cross the 1,000-yard mark for the second time in as many seasons with Thursday night's production, and he'll head into the Week 18 regular-season finale on Jan. 7 against the Patriots needing seven receptions to reach the 100-catch mark.

Season high in targets Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-24

Wilson caught nine of 15 targets for 76 yards in Sunday's 30-28 win over the Commanders.

With Trevor Siemian under center instead of Zach Wilson (concussion), Wilson the wideout saw a season high in target volume but didn't get many opportunities to stretch the field, as his longest reception went for only 16 yards. Running back Breece Hall ended up leading the Jets in catches, targets and receiving yards as Siemian stuck to a dink-and-dunk game plan. Wilson effectively remains a one-man show among the Jets' receiving corps, although Jason Brownlee did catch one pass among his three targets for an eight-yard TD on Sunday, but high volume won't necessarily lead to big production in Week 17 against a fierce Browns defense.

Just four targets in Week 15

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-17

Wilson caught three of four targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 30-0 loss to the Dolphins.

Wilson finished with a season-low target total and posted his second-fewest receiving yards, one week after notching season highs with 14 targets and 108 receiving yards. Starting quarterback Zach Wilson (head) exited in the second quarter, and things didn't get any better after backup Trevor Siemian came in under center, as Wilson's 29 receiving yards actually tied for the team lead. With Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) unlikely to come back this season now that the Jets have been eliminated from playoff contention, Wilson will likely continue to be hindered by poor quarterback play in Week 16 against the Commanders.

Season-high yardage total in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-10

Wilson caught nine of 14 targets for 108 yards and added a three-yard run in Sunday's 30-6 win over the Texans.

Wilson had consecutive receptions of 16 and seven yards on New York's second and third offensive plays, but his only other contribution in the first half was a three-yard jet sweep in the second quarter to convert on fourth-and-1. He got going again coming out of halftime, catching three passes for 55 yards on the first drive of the second half to set up a 15-yard Randall Cobb touchdown. That touchdown opened the floodgates to a 30-point second half from the Jets, and Wilson ultimately set a season high in receiving yards while tying his season high in targets. Zach Wilson also threw for a season-high 301 yards, so New York's passing game is heating up heading into a Week 15 trip to Miami.

Modest numbers against Falcons

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-03

Wilson caught three of seven targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 13-8 loss to the Falcons.

After being targeted only once in the first half, Wilson came alive on the Jets' first possession of the third quarter, starting the second half with a 31-yard catch before adding a nine-yard reception to convert a fourth down. He had a 22-yard toe-tapping catch along the sideline overturned on a challenge later on the same drive, so the Jets had to settle for a field goal to cut Atlanta's lead to 10-8. Wilson didn't add another catch the rest of the way, nor did the Jets score again, as a change in quarterback from Tim Boyle to Trevor Siemian in the fourth quarter proved futile. Regardless of which quarterback the Jets tab to start in Week 14 against the Texans, Wilson's potential will remain held back by poor play under center with Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) still recovering.

Scores first TD since Week 2

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-24

Wilson caught seven of 10 targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 34-13 loss to the Dolphins.

Wilson got both hands on a pass in the end zone in the fourth quarter but failed to control it to the ground. He got a chance at redemption two plays later and converted it for his third touchdown of the season, and his first since Week 2. The one-yard touchdown came with the Jets trailing 27-6 and facing softer coverage. Prior to scoring, Wilson didn't benefit from the change in quarterback from Zach Wilson to Tim Boyle -- who finished with 179 passing yards on 38 attempts -- so the Jets' No. 1 receiver will have to overcome poor quarterback play again when the Jets host the Falcons in Week 13.
