How will the NY Jets wide receivers shake out? - Footballguys

The Footballguys staff offers thoughts on the Jets wide receiver situation

There is a lot of uncertainty in the New York wide receivers corps. After a stellar 2017 season, Robby Anderson is widely assumed to be the top option for the Jets. But Quincy Enunwa was slated for that role before injuring his neck. Can he regain that spot from Anderson? Kearse turned in the best season of his career last year, but he's not even a lock for a roster spot. Is Terrelle Pryor healthy enough to regain his 2016 form? Is there room for any production from Chad Hansen, ArDarius Stewart, or Charone Peake?

Jason Wood: The receivers vying for touches all have one thing in common; they're not special. Quincy Enunwa was supposed the top receiver by some analysts, but that was in the context of the Jets being inept. The narrative a year ago was that New York was punting the season in hopes of landing a franchise quarterback. The players had other ideas and were far more productive than anyone guessed. My point is that Enunwa wasn't expected to be great, he was expected to be average and, as a result, the best of a bad bunch. But Robby Anderson had different ideas. 63 receptions for 941 yards and 7 touchdowns led to a 15th ranked fantasy finish. Off-field concerns threaten his long-term value, but he appears in the clear for the start of 2018. There's no justifiable reason to project anyone other than Anderson to lead the Jets statistically. Yet, with the quarterback situation in flux -- it's not clear what being No. 1 means for fantasy purposes. Ideally, Anderson should be drafted as a No. 3 receiver which gives you cushion. If he repeats last year, he's given you value.
