News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 17): It wasn't just Week 1. Enunwa is the foundation of the Jets pass offense. He is an everyweek starter and would go in the 4th-6th round range today if he was valued correctly.
General News (Wed Sep 19): practiced fully on Wednesday and is not on the team's injury report.
General News (Tue Sep 18): practiced fully on Tuesday.
Week 3: at Cleveland Browns
FBG says: Neutral matchup. Sam Darnold is showing plenty of strong long-term NFL traits. He's exhibiting great mobility, moving and stretching the pocket - someday, he'll use this skill to open his receivers up downfield. And from a mental standpoint, he's showing smarts and polish more often than not on his shorter throws. Still, he's very much a work in progress. Darnold, the youngest starting quarterback of the Super Bowl era, hasn't shown much confidence or drive when forced to make a play. Last week, he blew a sure touchdown by overthrowing a wide-open Quincy Enunwa into the stands, then threw short of the end zone in the final 10 seconds of an 8-point game (with no timeouts). His poise and decision-making are a liability right now, dragging down the values of downfield threats Robby Anderson and Terrelle Pryor. It's encouraging, though, to see Enunwa and Pryor making plays. Enunwa, an oversized slot man with great physicality, is Darnold's first read on a lot of his underneath stuff. And Pryor keeps making splashes on instinct; he's caught 7 balls for 133 yards as a Jet, seemingly supplanting Anderson as the Jets' top downfield threat. The Cleveland pass defense is coming around, slowly but surely. There's still inconsistency, but some of the assembled pieces are looking strong. Rookie cornerback Denzel Ward was a Week 1 terror, intercepting Ben Roethlisberger twice and making great open-field tackles to prevent long gains. Last Sunday, he helped corral Michael Thomas, who caught 12 balls and 2 touchdowns but managed just 89 yards. Of course, the touchdowns were back-breakers, ultimately costing the Browns the game. Thomas scored the first on a quick slant, slipping through a weak tackle attempt by cornerback Terrance Mitchell, then went over Ward (who never looked for the ball) for an easy second one. Slot man Briean Boddy-Calhoun looks like a weekly liability inside, too. Still, with Myles Garrett showing well in Year 2, there are brighter days ahead for this ascending secondary. They're far from a defense to avoid in fantasy, but look poised to create a few difficult days for quarterbacks as the year wears on.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 2 vs MIA (11 / 7 / 92 / 0 rec)
Enunwa was the only thing resembling a reliable receiver for quarterback Sam Darnold, and was also the target of Darnold's first interception. While he didn't find the end zone, he's been targeted frequently during both weeks and is clearly someone Darnold trusts. At one point, Enunwa got open along the back of the end zone while Darnold was scrambling, but the rookie saw him when he was already in the middle of throwing the ball away, and so the pass sailed high.
2018 Week 1 vs DET (10 / 6 / 63 / 1 rec)
After a year off, plus some missed time during both the preseason and training camp, Enunwa seems to be back on track as the Jets go-to guy on short and intermediate routes. He definitely has rookie quarterback Sam Darnold's trust, receiving 10 targets with the next closest getting just three. Enunwa's touchdown came on a short out route, which the receiver then turned upfield on after he received the pass. While a Lions defender caught up with him at the 10-yard line, Enunwa spun through his grasp and slipped a different tackler on his way to the end zone. It's very clear that Darnold trusts Enunwa and will probably look to him early and often in games.
Latest NewsJets | Quincy Enunwa paces club in receiving (Fri Sep 21, 01:57 AM) - New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa caught four passes for 57 yards in the team's loss to the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Sept. 20. Enunwa was targeted a team-high eight times. Our View: Enunwa is still the clear #1 for the Jets and you can consider this a "floor" game for him. Next week against the Jaguars he should be on your bench, but outside of matchups like that one, Enunwa is an every week starter going forward.
