  • Zach Wilson's Surgery Deemed A Success

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson's arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday was deemed a success, according to a source. There were no surprises from the original diagnosis. The Jets won't put Wilson back on the field until he's 100 percent healthy. There was a chance that the 23-year-old needed a full meniscus repair, which could have kept him out for the entire season, but instead he only needed a meniscus trim. He could be back on the field in two to four weeks and be ready for the regular season, but fantasy managers shouldn't get their hopes up. San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo remains available in a trade, but the Jets don't appear intent on making a move. They have confidence that veteran Joe Flacco can fill in under center until Wilson is ready to return.

  • Zach Wilson Will Undergo Knee Surgery Tuesday

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson (knee) is set to have surgery on his partially torn meniscus Tuesday, per Jets head coach Robert Saleh. Wilson sustained the injury -- along with a bone bruise -- during the team's preseason opener against the Eagles. The expectation within New York is that the signal caller avoided a serious long-term injury. While Wilson has initially received a two-to-four week recovery diagnosis, it's always possible that could change coming out of surgery. For now, the Jets appear content to move forward with Joe Flacco as their starting quarterback, which would set up a Week 1 rematch with the organization that the veteran took to the Super Bowl a decade ago. Wilson was likely already facing a muddled path to fantasy consideration in most fantasy formats, but managers will want to check back post-surgery to get a clearer picture of his anticipated return.

  • Latest On Jets QB Zach Wilson's Knee Injury

    3:59pm: With Wilson expected to be out for two to four weeks, many have wondered if the Jets might need to make a move at quarterback, in case his knee injury ends up taking longer to heal than expected. But the Jets have confidence in backup veteran quarterback Joe Flacco “to hold the fort down” […]

  • Zach Wilson Sustains Meniscus Tear, Set To Miss 2-4 Weeks

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson is set to be sidelined for the next 2-4 weeks by a bone bruise and meniscus tear in his right knee, per Brian Costello of the New York Post. Wilson left Friday's preseason contest against the Eagles due to the injury and was in significant pain prior to his departure. Initially, there were concerns that Wilson may be facing a long-term absence, but the team remains optimistic that their 23-year-old signal caller will be back in the fold soon. Joe Flacco and Mike White remain the team's top two internal candidates to start under center if Wilson isn't cleared by Week 1, with Flacco having sizable intrigue due to the matchup with Baltimore, a franchise he led to a Super Bowl in 2012.

  • Zach Wilson Set For An MRI

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson (knee) is scheduled to have an MRI on Saturday. The 23-year-old suffered a non-contact injury during Friday's preseason clash with the Philadelphia Eagles. While the team is certainly hoping for good news, there is fear that Wilson tore his ACL, likely ending his season. Nonetheless, head coach Robert Saleh may hand the keys over to Joe Flaccowith Wilson out of the equation, despite the veteran's decline in production over the years. Flacco's presence shouldn't favor Elijah Moore, Corey Davis, and rookie Garrett Wilson on the fantasy end. However, it could mean more touches for Breece Hall.

  • Zach Wilson Suffers Knee Injury

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson (knee) left Friday's preseason matchup against the Eagles. The sophomore signal-caller went down untouched in the first quarter, immediately limping off the field with a right knee injury. Wilson should undergo further testing to determine the severity of the ailment. However, if he misses time this season, Joe Flacco, a favorite of head coach Robert Saleh, may handle things under center.

  • Zach Wilson To Play A Few Series In Preseason Opener

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson will play one to two series in the preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles this week. If Wilson takes the offense down the field on the first drive, he'll likely be done for the day. The second-year quarterback has had an inconsistent training camp this summer, but more pieces are in place in the aerial attack for the 23-year-old to take a step forward in Year 2. There will likely still be growing pains along the way, but Wilson should have a higher fantasy football season in 2022, providing that the offensive line doesn't collapse in front of him. In fantasy football leagues, he should be considered a low-end QB2 with upside this year.

  • Mekhi Becton Likely Out For The Year

    New York Jets former first-round offensive tackle Mekhi Becton (knee) suffered an avulsion fracture of his right kneecap in training camp practice on Monday. He'll visit with a surgeon on Wednesday, but Becton will likely miss all of the 2022 season. It's brutal news for the Jets and the 23-year-old, who missed all but one game last year due to an unrelated knee injury. In his absence, George Fant stepped in at left tackle and did a commendable job protecting quarterback Zach Wilson's blind side in his rookie season. Becton had a solid rookie season in 2020, but injuries in back-to-back seasons have quickly turned him into a bust early in his career.

  • Mekhi Becton Suffers Knee Injury

    New York Jets offensive tackle Mekhi Becton (knee) limped off the field in training camp practice on Monday, but head coach Robert Saleh said Becton's knee is stable and doesn't seem like a big deal in terms of severity. However, he'll head for an MRI exam. It's good news that the 23-year-old's knee injury isn't serious, but it's concerning for a player that missed all but one game in 2021 due to a knee injury. When he was sidelined last year, George Fant filled in and played really well at left tackle, prompting the Jets to move Becton from left tackle to right tackle entering his third NFL season. If the former first-rounder can stay healthy in 2022, it would be great news for New York's offensive line in front of second-year quarterback Zach Wilson.

  • Zach Wilson Inconsistent Early In Training Camp

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson looked more comfortable dealing with pressure from the defensive line at training camp practice on Friday than he did the day prior, but two of his three incompletions on the day were interceptions. It wasn't all bad, though, as Wilson showed improvement in the red zone and threw an impressive touchdown pass to receiver Corey Davis. Wilson's final interception was a bad one and looked to be a miscommunication, but he ended practice with two touchdown passes -- one to rookie Garrett Wilson and the other to Davis. The 22-year-old signal-caller will be expected to decrease his turnovers in Year 2, and he has plenty of offensive weapons to take a leap forward in his sophomore season. But until we actually see it in the regular season, he'll be a low-end QB2 in fantasy.

  • Zach Wilson Getting Better At Improvising

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson "looks much more comfortable doing that than he did a year ago," head coach Robert Saleh said about Wilson's ability to improvise and make plays on his own. Improvisation is expected to become a bigger part of Wilson's game in his second NFL season. Wilson was facing constant pressure in training camp practice on Thursday, but he didn't turn the ball over and completed seven of 10 passes. The 22-year-old added muscle in the offseason and is looking to make a Year 2 leap with plenty of weapons in the passing game. Wilson has all the physical tools to be successful as a starter, but until he improves his accuracy and decision-making, he'll continue to be a QB2 with upside.

  • Mekhi Becton Still A Possibility At Left Tackle

    New York Jets left tackle Mekhi Becton's left-tackle days "aren't over," according to head coach Robert Saleh. Becton was drafted 11th overall in 2020 out of Louisville and had a strong rookie season, starting 13 games for the Jets. However, it's been all downhill since then, as he played in just one game last year before tearing his MCL and never returning. Backup George Fant stepped in nicely on quarterback Zach Wilson's blind side in 2021 after Becton was injured, but there's still a chance that Becton could win his starting job back if he proves he's fully healthy in training camp. If Becton isn't up to the task, the Jets could move him to right tackle.

  • Elijah Moore To Become No. 1 Wideout?

    New York Jets wide receiver Elijah Moore could become the team's No. 1 option on the depth chart, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post. With Jamison Crowder now gone, Moore may not only see the field more, but he could receive additional work out of the slot, a role he's familiar with from his collegiate days. The 22-year-old finished last season, his rookie campaign, by leading the club with 538 yards and five touchdowns off 43 catches, and it only took him 11 games to do it. Nonetheless, the former Ole Miss Rebel will surely have Corey Davis, Braxton Berrios, and 2022 No. 10 overall pick Garrett Wilson breathing down his neck for targets. However, Moore is the most talented out of the bunch. Still, quarterback Zach Wilson will need to play better this season, or else no one from the receiving corps will make much of a difference for fantasy managers.

  • Zach Wilson Gets Endorsement From Receiver

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson didn't have the most productive rookie season. He finished with 2,334 yards and nine touchdowns. The 22-year-old also threw 11 picks while completing a miserable 55.6% of his attempts. However, after reports surfaced that Wilson had a lousy spring, Braxton Berrios recently praised the young signal-caller. During an appearance on the Adam Schefter Podcast, the wideout claimed Wilson has "aged so much" since last season, referring to his physical and mental development. Berrios also believes the former BYU Cougar will be "in a different place than he was last year," which could be the case with a season under his belt. Additionally, the Jets made some moves to bolster the offense, adding Breece Hall and Garrett Wilson in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Nevertheless, although Wilson has a way to go before becoming a reliable fantasy contributor in any format, dynasty managers who already have him on the roster may want to hang on to him a bit longer to see what happens.

  • Zach Wilson Didn't Impress At OTAs

    It's still early in the offseason, but The Athletic's Connor Hughes writes that New York Jets second-year quarterback Zach Wilson wasn't overly impressive through four media-open organized team activity practices. Wilson struggled with his accuracy, and his decision-making was questionable, at best. It wasn't all bad for the 22-year-old, but Hughes was hoping to see more conviction and decisiveness. For what it's worth, the Jets aren't concerned and see signs of improvement as he trusts his reads much more. If Wilson's struggles continue into training camp, then there might be a little panic from the Jets, but for now, it's just something to watch. Wilson has some new toys in the passing game and he should take a step forward in 2022, but he'll still only be a low-end QB2 in fantasy.

  • Mekhi Becton Says He's Close To 100 Percent

    New York Jets left tackle Mekhi Becton said his knee is close to 100% and said his conditioning is fine. He neglected to reveal his current weight, but said he'll be ready for training camp at the end of July. After starting 13 games in his rookie season in 2020, Becton made only one start in 2021 after suffering an MCL injury in Week 1 that he never recovered from. George Fant replaced Becton on quarterback Zach Wilson's blind side and did a commendable job, so the two will battle for the starting left tackle job in training camp this summer. The 23-year-old might be making progress in regards to his knee injury, but it's far from a certainty that he'll be able to regain the starting gig after he was the 11th overall pick in the 2020 draft.

  • Zach Wilson Ready To Take The Next Step?

    New York Jets second-year quarterback Zach Wilson didn't look great at the beginning of voluntary organized team activities on Wednesday, but he rebounded in 11-on-11 drills and made three nice throws over the middle of the field. Wilson only completed 55.6% of his passes and tossed nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions as a rookie. He seems to be more confident this year, but Pro Football Network's Mike Kaye doesn't think Wilson is at the point where he can raise the performance of others. However, rookie receiver Garrett Wilson and rookie running back Breece Hall should help Wilson, as well as the continued growth of Elijah Moore and Michael Carter. The Jets offensive line is much-improved, so the pieces are there for Wilson to make a second-year leap.
