General News (Mon Oct 15): has been diagnosed with a left ankle sprain, although head coach Todd Bowles told reporters Monday, Oct. 15, he was unsure of the severity. Enunwa will miss three to four weeks with a high-ankle sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Week 7: vs Minnesota Vikings
FBG says: Good matchup. Sam Darnold may have already arrived. The youngest starting quarterback of the Super Bowl era, Darnold opened his NFL career with a whimper, completing just 56% of his throws over the first 5 weeks. But over the last 2, he's averaged a studly 9.54 yards per attempt and thrown 5 touchdowns. Darnold is a strong-armed prospect, one who's unafraid to test downfield and flashes excellent placement when his mechanics are sound. He's still getting by mostly on quick, short routes, and his slot men remain the Jets' most consistent producers. Quincy Enunwa easily led the team in targets and yardage before his Week 6 injury, and Jermaine Kearse stepped in last week to catch 9 balls. But as Darnold's confidence and fundamentals improve, there will be more opportunity for splash plays. As it stands, this certainly isn't the league's most explosive attack, but it's one that's finally showing fantasy utility. If Darnold keeps developing quickly as a franchise passer, the fortunes of Robby Anderson and Terrelle Pryor will rise, if only gradually. In general, the Vikings pass defense has been disappointing to open 2018. They were last year's second-most dominant unit, but thus far have allowed 4 of 6 quarterbacks to top 260 yards. They faced rookies in the other two games, and even Buffalo's Josh Allen was able to beat them on a handful of tough downfield throws. The pass rush remains dynamic, even without Everson Griffen, but the coverage units have been undermanned and shaky. The cornerbacks have alternated solid performances with bad ones, and it likely won't get better without first-round rookie Mike Hughes. This a group still quite capable of dominating, as it did last week in haranguing Cardinals rookie Josh Rosen. But it's no longer the fantasy-shutdown unit it once was.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 6 vs IND (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Enunwa left the game at the start of the second quarter with an ankle injury after fumbling the ball. His injury has been reported as a high ankle sprain and he is expected to miss three weeks or more.
2018 Week 5 vs DEN (5 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
It was a notable day just for what didn't happen -- quarterback Sam Darnold and Enunwa never connected. Enunwa did drop a pass and on one pass Darnold missed him, but the Broncos dedicated themselves to shutting this connection down and they were successful at that.
2018 Week 4 vs JAX (8 / 4 / 66 / 0 rec)
You know the day has gone sideways for the Jets when rookie quarterback Sam Darnold can't even hit security blanket Quincy Enunwa when he's wide open. Darnold sailed a pass on a fourth-and-one near the end of the third quarter which would have set the Jets up for at least a field goal, but the throw was off target. He continues to be the most consistently targeted of any Jets wide receiver, but most of those throws are, at most, intermediate distance.
2018 Week 3 vs CLE (8 / 4 / 57 / 0 rec)
The Jets' plan to dink and dunk their way to victory didn't work when Baker Mayfield came in and torched the defense, but when it did work, Quincy Enunwa was the reason. Enunwa took several screen passes and did a lot of damage after the catch. More than once, Enunwa caught a screen pass and bullied his way to a six or seven yard gain. His 57 yards were all on him, with some downfield blocking help from his fellow receivers.
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.
