The Fantasy First Down
There's a lot of Michael Pittman hype and I get it. He's going to be a starter in a strong Colts offence with the aggressive Philip Rivers at the helm. But let's be very clear, he's still a solid but average rookie who'll play well behind T.Y. Hilton and the run game. It's very hard to project him with 100 targets and that makes it hard to consider him a fantasy-relevant player. I'd be avoiding him this year but look forward to drafting him in the future.The Jets have 154 wide receiver targets up for grabs. That's a lot of opportunities for Breshad Perriman and Denzel Mims to soak up. While Perriman is likely to lead the way on the outside, Mims certainly has a chance to make a possible impact in an offence screaming out for a playmaker. There is reason to pump the brakes though, as the abridged pre-season will make it even harder than usual for rookies to shine, plus Chris Herndon is back and could easily have a big role this season. Mims is hence little more than a dart throw, but one with huge upside.
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
 Mims was one of the most talented WR's to come out of this year's draft but unfortunately for him, he got drafted by the Jets. While there are some vacated targets in that offense, it's still simply not a fantasy-friendly offense. Keep an eye on Mims early in the season for waivers but he does not need to be drafted in redraft leagues.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Has the chance to make an immediate impact as a rookie as a downfield target for Phillip Rivers. His competition for targets is oft injured TY Hilton and Jack Doyle, and second year slot receiver Parris Campbell. Would not be shocked if he becomes a weekly starting option.There is no reason not to throw a dart at the end of your draft with Denzel Mims. He is an absolute athletic freak that can run by defenders and jump out of the building. He has a path to playing time, and should be utilized from the jump in 2020.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It would seem likely that Pittman would start right away, as the Colts wanted to give Philip Rivers a big-bodied wide receiver. Some have compared Pittman to Vincent Jackson, a former teammate of Rivers, and one who had a lot of success when he was on the field. The expectation is that T.Y. Hilton and Pittman will play in 2WR sets, with Parris Campbell coming on when they go three wide. Because of that, Pittman could see a consistent five-plus targets per game. He's on the WR5 radar with upside for more.The Jets surely needed wide receivers, and knowing Mims was a second-round pick, he's going to get plenty of opportunity to shine. He's essentially the receiver that the Jets have given Sam Darnold to grow with throughout his NFL career, as Breshad Perriman's contract was just for one year. Because of that, Mims should see 70-plus targets in year one with growth for more, and he likely walks in as the best contested catch receiver on the team, meaning he could be a favorite in the red zone.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Mike Williams is 6'4", 220. Michael Pittman is 6'4", 223. Mike Williams two years ago was Rivers' RZ weapon. Last year he was Rivers' deep-ball threat. With T.Y. as a solid deep threat and Campbell as a fast slot option, Pittman could make an impact in the RZ right away. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Michael Pittman Jr. may have fallen into the best landing spot for any WR in this class. T.Y Hilton is on the last year of his contract and Parris Campbell is more of a gadget player that won't command an incredible amount of targets. Pittman is going to receive all the targets he can handle and he has the talent level to be a top-24 fantasy WR within the next two seasons.Denzel Mims could lead all rookie WRs in targets in 2020. While I'm not a fan of this offense with Adam Gase calling the shots, Mims has a tremendous opportunity this season. Darnold should look his way early and often, but the scoring upside is simply a huge question mark. Mims is a risky pick, and someone who I still believed had a lot of developing left to do before he hits his ceiling, but there's no denying that he's going to be given every opportunity to succeed with this WR corps.
