WR - NYJ
Week 3 Outlook
Jets coach Robert Saleh said Denzel Mims was inactive in Week 2 since he doesn't play special teams.
Saleh said his No. 5 receiver needs to play special teams to be active on game days. He'll likely be on the roster bubble entering the 2022 season if things don't change in a hurry.
Jets wide receiver Denzel Mims is inactive for the team's Week 2 matchup against the New England Patriots.
Mims caught one pass for 40 yards in Week 1 but is a surprise inactive for Week 2, especially with fellow wideout Jamison Crowder also out this week. Corey Davis, Elijah Moore, and Keelan Cole figure to be the top pass catchers for quarterback Zach Wilson this week.
Jets WR Denzel Mims played on the kickoff coverage team on Saturday and was the sixth wide receiver to enter the game for New York.
Beat writers have been reporting that Mims could be on the roster bubble, and this usage certainly aligns with that line of thinking. Mims is well off the fantasy radar heading into 2021.
New York Jets WR Denzel Mims is working with the third-team offense in training camp and could be a trade candidate, per Rich Cimini of ESPN.
The idea of a trade is speculation from Cimini. Mims flashed at times last season as a big-bodied receiver who can compete for jump balls, but the current offense is looking for players that can create separation. The best-case scenario for Mims fantasy-wise would be getting traded to a team that can utilize his skillset.
New York Jets second-year WR Denzel Mims is working with the third-team offense in training camp on Friday, per Connor Hughes of The Athletic.
The news keeps getting worse for Mims. Earlier this week, he was working with the second team, and it appears he has slipped further down the depth chart. Mims was drafted in the second round last year, but he is a vertical receiver, and the Jets are looking for route-runners who can create after the catch. Don't expect Mims to make an impact this season as long as he's a Jet.
