2016 Week 17 vs BUF (8 / 5 / 81 / 0 rec)
Brandon Marshall was deemed inactive, so Quincy Enunwa became the de-facto top option in the passing attack. Enunwa had two bad drops that showed a lack in concentration, but also displayed some big play ability. In the first half, Enunwa and Fitzpatrick hooked up for a 51-yard gain deep down the right sideline. Enunwa was lined up against Ronald Derby,and Enunwa badly beat his press at the line of scrimmage. The safety help did not close in time as Enunwa pulled down the big gain. Outside of this long pass play, Enunwa was deployed as an intermediate option on shallow-to-deep crossing routes. Enunwa flashed playmaking ability throughout the season, but also struggled with drops over the middle of the field.
2016 Week 16 vs NE (5 / 1 / 30 / 0 rec, 1 / 12 / 0 rush)
Enunwa had one catch for 30 yards on a deep seam route. He saw a team high five targets, but struggled as the passing attack faltered.
2016 Week 15 vs MIA (9 / 5 / 64 / 0 rec)
Quincy Enunwa is a maddeningly inconsistent player. He'll flash impressive route running skills on one play, but will drop an easy catch on the following play due to a lack of concentration. The glimpses of brilliance give fans hope, but the dumb mistakes are hard to ignore. In the first half, Enunwa primarily worked out of the slot and made a few tough grabs over the middle, but also dropped some easy targets. He had a long gain of 28 yards on a deep drag route, but otherwise, was a non-factor. It didn't help either that Bryce Petty only completed nine passes to non-running backs.
2016 Week 14 vs SF (7 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Enunwa was primarily targeted on short-to-intermediate routes for short gains. Enunwa had a long catch and run of 16 yards on an in-breaking route.
2016 Week 13 vs IND (2 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Quincy Enunwa was a non-factor. Enunwa and Fitzpatrick hooked up for a 10-yard gain on a back shoulder throw early in the second quarter. Outside of this pass play, Enunwa failed to make an impact.
2016 Week 12 vs NE (5 / 5 / 109 / 1 rec)
Quincy Enunwa was dynamic. Featured on intermediate and deep routes, Enunwa won against man coverage and found spots in New England's deep zone. Enunwa started the game strong, beating Malcolm Butler for a 40-yard gain deep down the right sideline on a back shoulder throw. Enunwa showed strong hands and good arm extension to come down with the grab. In the fourth quarter, Enunwa made an acrobatic catch for a 22-yard touchdown. Matched up against Butler, Enunwa ran a deep corner route, elevated over Butler and landed on his rear end to complete the scoring play. Initially, the play was ruled incomplete, but the replay showed that Enunwa got his left foot in bounds and landed on his rear in bounds to complete the scoring play. The Jets challenged the call and won. Later in the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick hit Enunwa on a deep drag for a 23-yard gain against deep zone coverage. The target was low, but Enunwa slid and hauled in the pass.
2016 Week 10 vs LA (6 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
For the second straight week, Enunwa failed to make an impact. Enunwa had trouble defeating press at the line of scrimmage and had trouble finding soft spots against zone coverage. Enunwa was targeted on Petty's game-ending interception. Working against zone coverage, Alec Ogletree ripped away a pass intended for Enunwa, who was running a short crossing route.
2016 Week 9 vs MIA (4 / 1 / 25 / 0 rec)
'Sloppy' would be the best word to summarize Quincy Enunwa's performance against Miami. Playing both inside and outside, Enunwa had opportunities to make big plays, but drops and poor route running led to failed plays. Late in the first quarter, Enunwa ran a slant route against Cover-2 and was wide open. Fitzpatrick delivered a throw on-point, but Enunwa dropped an easy 20-yard gain. In the second quarter, Fitzpatrick targeted Enunwa on a post-route in the end zone, but Enunwa drifted on the route, allowing the defender to fight inside and knock the ball away. Enunwa has shown promise in spurts, but this was one of his poor performances.
2016 Week 8 vs CLE (11 / 4 / 93 / 1 rec)
Quincy Enunwa keeps getting better every week. As a receiver, Enunwa and Fitzpatrick hooked up for a 24-yard touchdown. Identifying Cleveland's two-deep safety look, Fitzpatrick hit Enunwa on a crossing route and Enunwa made the scoring play happen after the catch. Enunwa ran towards the left sideline, broke towards the end zone, ran through three arm tackles and dove into the end zone. Fitzpatrick came back to Enunwa later in the game, hitting him deep down the middle for a 57 yard catch and run. Enunwa successfully delivered two big plays, but he had two more opportunities for long gains that bounced off of his hands. While the long pass plays were impressive, Enunwa set the edge as a blocker that sprung a Bilal Powell touchdown run. Enunwa can be an inconsistent player at times, but has gotten better each week.
2016 Week 7 vs BAL (4 / 2 / 73 / 1 rec)
Fans have been waiting to see Quincy Enunwa's run after the catch ability and he put it on full display in this game. Late in the first quarter, Enunwa and Geno Smith hooked up for a 69-yard touchdown. Enunwa ran a button hook, sat down in the middle of Baltimore's zone coverage, evaded two tacklers and sped down the left side line for a 69-yard touchdown. For a bigger receiver, Enunwa displayed impressive breakaway speed that fans haven't seen so far this season.
2016 Week 6 vs ARI (5 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
Quincy Enunwa had a tough time beating press coverage. When facing zone coverage, he was able to make plays. In the fourth quarter, Enunwa and Smith hooked up a 17-yard gain on a post route. The timing between Enunwa and Smith was excellent and could be a sign of things to come.
2016 Week 5 vs PIT (7 / 4 / 51 / 0 rec)
Operating as New York's de-facto second option for the second straight week, Quincy Enunwa had a solid game. Moving in and out the slot, Enunwa drew opportunities against smaller corners and used his big body to create separation, giving Fitzpatrick a big target over the middle of the field. Enunwa was unable to rip off any big plays after the catch, but was solid and helped move the chains. The return of Eric Decker should give Enunwa more opportunities over the middle of the field.
2016 Week 4 vs SEA (7 / 6 / 60 / 0 rec)
Operating as New York's de-facto second option, Quincy Enunwa had a really good game. With Richard Sherman focused on Brandon Marshall, Enunwa battled Jeremy Lane throughout the game and was successful. Enunwa was physical with the smaller corner and caught six of his seven targets. Enunwa was able to box out the smaller defender for inside position on quick slant and drag routes. When deployed, Seattle's deep zone kept all of New York's receivers in check, but Enunwa was able to make plays over the middle of the field.
2016 Week 3 vs KC (11 / 4 / 37 / 0 rec)
Quincy Enunwa received a team-high 11 targets, but he wasn't able to make many plays. The timing between Fitzpatrick and all of his receivers was noticeably off, so everyone suffered. Enunwa made one big play in third quarter, an 18-yard grab down the left side that put New York in the red zone, but outside of this play, his performance was forgettable.
2016 Week 2 vs BUF (6 / 6 / 92 / 0 rec)
Quincy Enunwa is quickly making a name for himself as New York's third big, physical receiver. Alike last week, Fitzpatrick wasted no time targeting Enunwa, delivering a 34-yard strike down the right side line for the first completion of the game. Enunwa was matched up against Gilmore on the play and displayed impressive body control to catch the ball while he was falling backwards. Enunwa was rotated in and out of the slot and had no trouble winning his one-on-one match-ups. Enunwa tweaked a rib injury in the second half and was not targeted as regularly, but his mere presence opened opportunities for Marshall and Decker.
2016 Week 1 vs CIN (8 / 7 / 54 / 1 rec)
After missing most of the pre-season with a concussion, Enunwa immediately made his presence felt in the first quarter. Fitzpatrick targeted Enunwa three times on New York's opening touchdown drive, which culminated with a 3-yard touchdown reception. With the defense primarily focused on stopping Marshall, Enunwa ran a quick out route and hauled in a 3-yard touchdown. Enunwa was physical at the catch point to keep the smaller corner at bay. Enunwa primarily operated out the slot and found success against smaller corners. Enunwa is a big bodied, physical receiver that physically resembles a tight end that proved to be a tough match-up.
