WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

The Jets released Quincy Enunwa (neck).

Enunwa was placed on the reserve/PUP list by the Jets earlier this year, and this gives him an opportunity to sign with another team if he can get to full health at some point this season. For now, Enunwa does not need to be held in dynasty leagues.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

The Jets are placing Quincy Enunwa on the reserve/PUP list, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Enunwa unfortunately has basically had two seasons of his NFL career wiped out by neck injuries, so this isn't a good sign. Enunwa will not be able to play for the Jets this season, but perhaps he can get released from the reserve/PUP list at some point and land with another team. We hope Enunwa the best as he looks to get back to 100%.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa is out for the season with a neck injury, according to the New York Post.

This is just terrible news for Enunwa, who missed the entire 2017 season with a neck injury and will now miss the rest of 2019 with the second season-ending neck injury of his career. This explains the Jets' acquisition of Demaryius Thomas yesterday, and Thomas figures to slide right into the starting lineup alongside Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder. Enunwa will turn just 28 in the spring, but it's possible these multiple neck injuries make it difficult for him to continue his career. We wish Enunwa the best of luck on his recovery.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

The Jets signed Quincy Enunwa to a multi-year contract extension.

Enunwa was set to become a free agent this offseason, but the Jets are locking him up to keep him with the team moving forward. Enunwa is a tough, versatile player that should be a reliable target early in Sam Darnold's career, and he'll likely man the slot as a clear starter in 2019. In PPR leagues particularly, Enunwa could be one of the better selections in the later rounds of fantasy drafts next summer.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa (ankle) has been ruled out for the Jets' season finale.

Enunwa wasn't likely to get back in time for Week 17, so he'll officially miss his final three games to end the season. Enunwa's 2018 campaign ends with 38 receptions for 449 yards and one touchdown in 11 games. He started the season hot with at least four receptions and 57 yards in each of the first four games, but injuries pretty much derailed things. Still, it was good to see Enunwa get back on the field after his 2017 season was wiped out by a neck injury, and the former sixth-round pick will be just 27 this offseason. Enunwa will be a free agent this offseason, but the Jets will probably look into bringing him back.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Week 16.

Enunwa remains week-to-week while dealing with the ankle injury that's affected him for a good portion of the season. Robby Anderson is locked in as the No. 1 target for Sam Darnold this Sunday against the Packers. Hopefully Enunwa is able to suit up for Week 17, but he's looking questionable at best.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Saturday against the Texans.

Enunwa has been dealing with this ankle injury, and the Jets went ahead and ruled him out for Week 15. Fantasy wise, you probably weren't relying on Enunwa in the fantasy playoffs, but his absence could mean a boost in targets for Robby Anderson. Hopefully Enunwa is able to get back on the field in Week 16 or 17.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa catches three passes in Week 14.

Enunwa gained 22 yards on his three receptions against the Bills. He left the game with an ankle injury in what might be an aggravation of the ankle issues he's been dealing with for much of this season, so his status is in serious doubt for this Saturday against the Texans.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa caught two passes for nine yards in Sunday's loss.

Enunwa saw six targets, but he was held in check after a solid game in Week 12. The Jets have really struggled offensively, so we'll see if Sam Darnold's possible return from a foot injury can provide a jolt next Sunday in Buffalo.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa leads the Jets in Week 12 receiving.

Enunwa was targeted four times against the Patriots, catching all four targets for 73 yards with a long of 41 yards. This was a good showing for Enunwa, who appears to be healthy and will look to make a big impact down the stretch. He might work his way back into FLEX value down the stretch, but he's not a highly-recommended fantasy option against the Titans next week.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa catches four passes in Week 10.

Enunwa drew a team-high eight targets against the Bills, but he was only able to gain 18 yards on his four receptions. Enunwa is probably just a deeper-league PPR FLEX option when he returns from the Jets' Week 12 bye.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa catches three passes against the Dolphins.

In his return after missing two games with an ankle injury, Enunwa gained 40 yards on his three receptions in the Jets' Week 9 loss. His 40 yards were the most among wide receivers for the Jets, and Enunwa is probably back to assuming the role of Sam Darnold's top target at wide receiver. Still, he doesn't offer a very high floor as a FLEX option right now. Enunwa faces the Bills next week.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa (ankle) is active for Week 9.

After missing the last two games with his ankle injury, Enunwa is ready to go for the Jets. Enunwa is immediately a PPR FLEX option, but there are probably better options for Week 9 fantasy lineups.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday.

Enunwa has missed the last two games with his ankle injury, so a return this weekend would put him on the low end of his three-to-four-week projected recovery. We expect Enunwa will tough it out and play, but it's no lock. His status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa (ankle) is expected to miss three-to-four weeks.

Enunwa is reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain, and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says the timeframe is three-to-four weeks. High-ankle sprains can be bad, so it wouldn’t be surprising if Enunwa missed more than a month with this. It’s a tough break for Enunwa and the Jets, particularly for rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. None of the Jets receivers are highly recommended fantasy pickups as a result of this injury.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa (ankle) is out for the rest of today's game.

It took a while to rule him out completely, but he's been knocked out of the game after the first-half ankle injury. Before leaving, Enunwa caught one pass for nine yards and lost a fumble. Now we have to hope this injury isn't too serious.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa (ankle) is questionable to return against the Colts.

Enunwa went to the locker room with the injury, so it could be something serious for New York's No. 1 receiver. Being called questionable is probably a good sign, though, so hopefully he can return to the field soon.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa doesn't catch a pass in Week 5.

Enunwa started the season as a high-floor option with at least 57 yards in each game, so this was a surprise and an outlier. Look for Enunwa to bounce back next week against the Colts, but he's more of a riskier FLEX option for Week 6.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa leads Jets in Week 4 receiving.

Drawing a team-high eight targets against the Jaguars, Enunwa was again the top target for rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. Enunwa caught four passes for 66 yards in the loss, and he has at least 57 yards in each of the first four games this season. Coming off a neck injury that forced him to miss all of last season, Enunwa is on pace for 84 receptions, 1,012 yards, and four touchdowns through four games.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa leads Jets in Week 3 receiving.

Enunwa accounted for a lot of New York's success through the air against the Browns, catching four passes (on eight targets) for 57 yards, leading the team in all categories. Three of the catches went for first downs on very successful screens, and Enunwa was close to breaking at least one of them for a score. Enunwa is clearly Sam Darnold's number one target, which at least carries FLEX appeal. Next week at Jacksonville will be a difficult matchup, though; however, the Jets are likely to try to get the ball in Enunwa's hands.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa goes over 90 yards in Week 2 loss.

Enunwa drew a team-high 11 targets against the Dolphins, catching seven passes for 92 yards, with a long of 21 yards. Sam Darnold clearly has a lot of trust in Enunwa, who looks to be a high-floor FLEX option, especially in PPR leagues. Enunwa has 13 receptions for 155 yards and a touchdown through two games.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa leads Jets in receiving against the Lions.

Enunwa was clearly Sam Darnold's top target throughout the night, drawing a team-high ten targets (the second-most on the team was three), catching six passes for 63 yards and a touchdown. Enunwa was a tough and reliable target underneath and over the middle for the Jets, and there's no reason to believe he won't be all season. In PPR leagues in particular, Enunwa is worth FLEX consideration.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa is going to play in the Jets' third preseason game.

The Jets face the Giants tomorrow night in MetLife Stadium, and it'll be Enunwa's first game action since the 2016 season after he missed all of last season with a disc issue in his neck. It'll be great to see Enunwa, who says he feels great, back on the field at 100% after going through the unfortunate neck issue, and it'll be interesting to see his playing time within the Jets receiving corps. Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, and Enunwa are likely to be the top three receivers for the Jets this season, but there's been talk of getting Enunwa involved a variety of ways.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa (thumb) is expected to miss one to two weeks, according to the Daily News.

Enunwa is probably going to miss the Jets' first preseason game next Friday, and he could be in danger of missing the second one. New York has a crowded receiving group, so hopefully Enunwa can get back out there soon before he falls too far behind on the depth chart.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Josh McCown compared Quincy Enunwa to Anquan Boldin.

McCown was with Boldin during the start of his career with the Cardinals, and he said "Quincy kind of has that after catch, that tough mentality... He gets the ball in his hands and makes plays... Every day he's on the field with us I think is a good day for us." This is noteworthy because McCown could very well be under-center for Week 1, and he'd probably love throwing to a guy that reminds him of Anquan Boldin, who is currently ninth all-time with 1,076 receptions. Enunwa is still practicing with a red non-contact jersey, but all indications are he'll be ready to go this season. After a solid 58/857/4 receiving line in 2016, Enunwa has sneaky 1,000-yard upside if he's featured for the Jets in 2018.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa thinks he can eclipse 1,000 receiving yards this season.

Enunwa talked to Manish Mehta of the Daily News and talked about the neck injury he's dealt with that caused him to miss the entire 2017 season, saying that it originally started back in December of 2015 and gradually got worse. However, he luckily didn't have to go through any rehab after his surgery, he just had to rest. Enunwa isn't going to fully participate in training until training camp, as the Jets are taking a cautious approach, but the fifth-year receiver wants to be a "difference maker" in the offense. Enunwa believes he can get 1,000 yards because he "had 857 with Brandon Marshall on the other side" and wasn't even the No. 2 receiver behind him; and he told Mehta to "imagine" if he was one of the top two receivers on the depth chart. There are a lot of options in the Jets receiving corps, but there should be heavy competition for the top roles. However, Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse are probably the favorites as the starters on the outside at the moment—but the team's receiving situation is one to watch leading up to the season. Enunwa could certainly deliver solid fantasy value in 2018.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa has been tenured at the second-round level.

Enunwa missed the entire 2017 season with a neck injury, but the Jets clearly want to keep him around after a breakout 2016 season where he was a physical big-play threat. Expect to see the soon-t0-be 26-year-old back in New York next season with a combination of Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown throwing him passes. He should be worth considering at the back end of fantasy drafts.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa's season-ending neck injury is a bulging disc.

He'll be out 6-9 months, but fortunately it isn't believed to be career-threatening. Still, it's hard not to feel terrible for Enunwa, as neck injuries are no joke and he had a prime opportunity as the number one receiver on the Jets. The good news is Enunwa should be good to go for offseason activities in 2018.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

The Jets are placing Quincy Enunwa on IR, according to Adam Schefter.

Enunwa suffered a neck injury a few days ago and will now miss the entire season. It's terrible news for Enunwa, who was looking to emerge as the Jets' number one receiver this season. The Jets have a receiving corps full of young guys that will now look to emerge as the top receiver in the group. Robby Anderson might be the favorite to be the team's top option, but watch out for rookies ArDarius Stewart from Alabama and Chad Hansen from Cal—third- and fourth-round picks, respectively.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Jets receiver Quincy Enunwa suffered a neck injury in practice last night.

It happened during a 7-on-7. Head coach Todd Bowles said, "he fell. Nobody touched him. He either hit his head or his neck and something went wrong when he fell.” Bowles said Enunwa missed time in the spring with something similar, but they have to wait and see on the severity of this. Hopefully it's not too bad and the third-year receiver can get back out there soon.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa thinks he might get more opportunities this season.

The Jets have a new offensive coordinator (John Morton) that brings a different type of offense to the team. Enunwa said to Jets reporter Ethan Greenberg that he's "playing a little more receiver" instead of being lined up in the backfield at times last season, and that he expects "more opportunities inside, outside—that sort of thing," in the new system. Naturally, Enunwa should get more targets with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker both gone, and this adds to that. Enunwa should be a high floor option with upside in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Receiver Quincy Enunwa (neck) will not participate in training camp.

Enunwa is expected to be the Jets' number one receiver, with Eric Decker gone. He's reportedly looked good throughout the offseason, but he won't hit the field with the team until training camp. Enunwa is a guy to watch as a breakout candidate.

Quincy Enunwa ends season with 80+ yards against the Bills.

Enunwa had five receptions for 81 yards. He finishes the season with 58 receptions for 857 yards and four touchdowns. He made some spectacular plays throughout the season, and will be a part of the Jets' plans in 2017. He is worth keeping an eye on in training camp as he might take another step forward for the Jets.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Enunwa leads Jets in receiving on Saturday.

But it was just 30 yards on one reception. Enunwa has some talent but will not be a fantasy option with Bryce Petty or Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa caught five passes for 64 yards against the Dolphins in Week 15.

He's a better real life player than fantasy player right now, and isn't a great fantasy option.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa had three catches for 29 yards against the Niners.

Enunwa was tightly covered most of the game, but did have an excellent one-handed diving catch to haul in a pass that likely would have been intercepted otherwise. Enunwa is a good player, but not a reliable fantasy option in the Jets offense.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa targeted only twice in Week 13.

He caught one pass for ten yards. Enunwa showed his explosiveness on the catch, when he darted up the sideline for ten yards. Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched, which puts a dent into Enunwa's value. He's an OK FLEX in a good matchup against the 49ers next week, however.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Quincy Enunwa caught all five targets for 109 yards and a touchdown Sunday.

Enunwa had a great day as he's had the opportunity to fill in as the number two receiver with Eric Decker our for the year. Fitzpatrick seems comfortable throwing to the youngster, as Enunwa received more targets than all the other wide receivers not named Brandon Marshall combined. Enunwa is an OK FLEX option next Monday against the Colts.

Quincy Enunwa | Free Agent WR

Enunwa held to one catch for second consecutive week.

He had one catch for seven yards against the Rams. After looking like a very usable FLEX option, Enunwa has put up a couple of duds. Keep him out of your lineup until (or if) he picks it back up. If you want to drop him, go ahead.
