Game day update: Mims and Crowder were full participants at practice all week while Perriman was limited on Wednesday and Thursday before practicing in full on Friday. There’s no reason to be especially high on any Jets receiver but Crowder has had the most success with Darnold under center.
The New York Jets offense has a tough matchup this week against the Miami Dolphins. Wide receivers are finding limited success in fantasy football against Miami, and with an already confusing picture among the Jets receivers, it’s not shaping up to be a great week for any of them. However, the return of quarterback Sam Darnold does at least bode well for one player here.
Fantasy Football analysis: Jets WRs Breshad Perriman, Denzel Mims, Jamison Crowder
Jamison Crowder has struggled lately. Last week, he had 16 yards on one catch. The week before that he at least scored, but finished with just 26 yards. However, with Darnold back, his numbers should improve. He’s been the one receiver with whom Darnold has had a steady connection. Crowder even posted two games with more than 100 yards this season when Darnold was in the lineup. He’s a decent WR3 this week.
Perriman has three touchdowns in his last two games, but that came with Joe Flacco under center. He has some upside because of the touchdowns, but given Darnold’s struggles, I wouldn’t bank on it.
Mims had 71 yards on three catches last week, and he had 62 in the game before that. But here too, the Jets’ downgrade at quarterback depresses his outlook this week.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Jamison Crowder. Sit Breshad Perriman and Denzel Mims.
