The Jets never seemed to know what to do with Enunwa under Todd Bowles, and so he languished in a short-yardage role which seemed to revolve around screens and short slants. Reports have new head coach Adam Gase wanting to use Enunwa more creatively, and as the Jets tied him up with a four-year extension, we'd imagine they want their money's worth. We expect him to stretch the field a little more, so his yards per catch should go up, but along with the mystery of what Gase will really do is the question of how Sam Darnold will play in his second year and how the offense will split the targets among three receivers - Enunwa, Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder - as well as tight end Chris Herndon, who had a solid rookie year. Enunwa has solid speed and good hands, so if the team really wants to get him the ball, he could put up some decent numbers. Still, he's not trustworthy as more than an occasional fantasy starter, though he has upside. (May 29)

Latest News

Jets | Quincy Enunwa update (Wed Aug 7, 10:46 AM) - Updating previous reports, New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (groin) is expected to be back next week, according to head coach Adam Gase.

Our View: Enunwa is going to miss some preseason time but that's okay. He's an experienced veteran who should be ready to go well before Week 1 of the regular season.

Jets | Quincy Enunwa hurt in practice Tuesday (Tue Aug 6, 05:05 PM) - New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (groin) injured his groin in practice Tuesday, Aug. 6. While the team does not appear to be overly concerned about the injury, Enunwa's status for the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 8, against the New York Giants is uncertain, according to Dennis Waszak Jr. of The Associated Press.

Our View: The team will be careful with the veteran as he deals with this groin injury. New head coach Adam Gase says that he doesn't want to put Enunwa in the box, so we should see him get more downfield routes than he did in 2018. We could see him catching 45-50 passes this year for the Jets.

Jets | Quincy Enunwa dealing with injury (Tue Aug 6, 12:08 PM) - New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (groin) left practice early Tuesday, Aug. 6, with a groin injury. Head coach Adam Gase said Enunwa will have tests, but he didn't sound overly concerned about the situation, noting that Enunwa was seeking to return to practice.

Our View: Enunwa got off to a hot start last year but never regained form after he got hurt. He's competing Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder for targets and fantasy relevance, so staying on the field is important for his value.
