Fantasy Impact:

Despite being one of the only rookie quarterbacks almost guaranteed to start in Week 1 (the other being Trevor Lawrence) there's been very little fantasy buzz about Wilson since the NFL Draft. The former BYU star is currently ranked as the QB28 behind quarterbacks such as Jared Goff and Jameis Winston, who hasn't been named the starter as of it. The Jets have done a great job this off-season building up his offensive weapons. The wide receiver room is stacked with quality players and he's likely to have better protection than Sam Darnold was ever afforded. Wilson has a cannon for an arm and is capable of making any throw. Fantasy managers should also be excited about the rookie's ability to extend plays with his legs. Running quarterbacks have immense value in fantasy and Wilson should be able to provide that much for fantasy managers in his first season. With a below-average defense, the first-time signal caller should have ample opportunity to air it out as the Jets will often be playing from behind. Fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if Wilson challenges for a top-20 finish at the quarterback spot. With quality coaches in place, a stable group of pass-catchers, the ability to score points with his legs, and a defense that will have the offense in catch-up mode most of the season, Wilson is a great target in any Superflex leagues.
