Enunwa was a breakout receiver in 2016, hitting double digit scoring in PPR leagues in eight of 16 weeks. The quarterback situation probably won't be any better, but Enunwa's game is growing, and even just a repeat of 2016 will make him a value and frequent contributor at a reasonable cost of around a 12th round pick in 12 team leagues.
Enunwa suffered a neck injury on August 5 and the team has placed him on injured reserve.

Summary

After a breakout 2016, Quincy Enunwa is in line for a pretty big piece of the action. The New York Jets got rid of Brandon Marshall and now there is a gap where Marshall used to stand. The theory is that Enunwa will take a step forward and replace Marshall, but it remains to be seen if he can really do that. Ralph Vacchiano of SNY says Enunwa is ready to take on more responsibility and was told Enunwa felt "was kind of put in almost a box" by last year's offense. Last season Enunwa was primarily relegated to the slot, but now he may see some work on the outside. The problem is that the quarterback situation is a mess. Bryce Petty proved to be a backup and no more when he got a chance in the driver's seat last year. Josh McCown is a very sub-par starter who can sometimes elevate but more often than not hits his ceiling and comes crashing back down to earth. Nobody knows what Christian Hackenberg is yet, and it's hard to feel anything but uneasy given what we've seen and heard. That makes Enunwa a bit of a risk himself - very few receivers are good enough to overcome a shoddy quarterback and as much as Enunwa looks like a player who has the ability to be a solid producer, it's going to be hard for him to transcend the people throwing him the ball. UPDATE: Enunwa has been placed on injured reserve with a neck injury and will miss the 2017 season. (August 7)

Jets | Quincy Enunwa to have surgery soon (Thu Aug 17, 04:19 PM) - New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (neck) is expected to undergo surgery on his neck sometime next week. Enunwa had hoped to avoid surgery after receiving a second opinion.

Our View: As much as we too were hoping he could avoid surgery we aren't shocked he didnt. he is, after all, a Jets wide receiver, a group of guys that look like they could be snake bit this year. That being said we hope Enunwa heals quickly and comes back to be productive in 2018.

Jets | Quincy Enunwa going to IR (Mon Aug 7, 03:21 PM) - New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (neck) is being placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a neck injury, according to a source.

Our View: Neck injuries are tricky to come back from and they've ended multiple careers in the past. Enunwa's future is in question as 2017 was supposed to be a big contract year. He broke out with 58 catches in 2016 but now Enunwa will hit the open market in 2018 with huge question marks around his health. The Jets now turn to Robby Anderson as the no1 WR this season.
