Depth Chart Fantasy Impact
The Jets watched as QB Zach Wilson labored through last season. This offseason, HC Robert Saleh and GM Joe Douglas clearly made it their mission to upgrade Wilson’s supporting cast.
First came the arrival of dynamic rookie Garrett Wilson. Selected 10th overall, Wilson brings inside/outside versatility, plus speed and strong run-after-catch talent. He goes 6’0, 192 pounds. Playing alongside Chris Olave at Ohio State, Wilson truly broke out in 2021 with 70 grabs, 1,058 yards and 12 TDs. He’ll join Elijah Moore and Corey Davis to form a loaded 3-WR set.
Jamison Crowder left for Buffalo following a 51-catch 2021. But the Jets remain flush with depth here, especially following the re-signing of slot WR Braxton Berrios.
In the backfield, New York infused talent with Round 2 pick Breece Hall. The Iowa State standout brings high-end speed and athleticism with the production to match. Hall totaled 3,941 yards on 718 attempts across 3 seasons (5.5 YPC). He popped in 56 total scores and proved remarkably durable. He’s well built to take punishment at 5’11, 217 pounds. And he immediately slots to the top of the depth chart ahead of 2021 draft pick Michael Carter. Across 14 games last year, Carter tallied 147 carries for 639 yards and 4 scores. He was a contributor in the passing game, too, with 36 catches for 325 yards.
New York overhauled the TE room with the additions of C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Conklin — upgrades on ’21 starters Ryan Griffin and Tyler Kroft. The Jets even used a Round 3 pick on Ohio State’s Jeremy Ruckert, giving this unit a jolt of young talent. Ruckert caught only 54 passes across 4 seasons, but his numbers were suppressed by a stacked WR corps.
