WR - NYJ
Week 3 Outlook
Jets WR Jamison Crowder has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Crowder picked up a groin injury during practice this week and will now miss his second consecutive game for the Jets. Rookie Elijah Moore and Corey Davis should continue to see the lion's share of targets from Zach Wilson against the Patriots.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Jets WR Jamison Crowder (groin) is expected to play in Week 2.
Despite the fact that Crowder was inactive last week (COVID) and limited this week in practice with his groin, the expectation is that the veteran slot receiver will be on the field against New England. With Corey Davis the de facto No. 1 option for Zach Wilson, the target-reliant Crowder might be a risky fantasy play facing a Patriots team that he's hung a pedestrian 18/158/1 line on in five career games. One of the lowest point totals on this week's slate (43), it would be wise to look elsewhere for fantasy purposes.
Jets WR Jamison Crowder (groin) is questionable for Week 2 against the Patriots.
Crowder just returned from the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he's now battling a groin injury. The veteran slot receiver was limited in practice this week. Crowder's presence could hurt Elijah Moore's potential for early-season production.
Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder (groin) logged a limited practice session on Thursday.
Crowder was activated from Reserve/COVID-19 on Thursday but was unable to practice in full due to his groin injury. The 28-year-old caught 59 passes for 699 yards and six touchdowns last season, but it remains to be seen what his role will look like in 2021 following the additions of Corey Davis, Elijah Moore, and Keelan Cole Sr. Furthermore, there's no guarantee that Crowder even suits up against the Patriots in Week 2. His status will be worth monitoring on Friday.
Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Jets have activated WR Jamison Crowder who should make his season debut for the team in Week 2 vs the Patriots.
Getting Crowder back is a big deal for the Jets as right now outside of Corey Davis there isn't a lot of veteran leadership on the offense to help out rookie QB Zach Wilson. Given the Jets' struggles in Week 1 to put up points and move the football this should be a welcomed addition that gives the offense a few more options. Crowder has lead the Jets in receptions and receiving yards the last two years and should be a focal point for the team yet again. For fantasy football purposes this more than anything hurts rookie WR Elijah Moore who will be playing behind Crowder and also struggled in Week 1. This week's matchup vs the Patriots is not an ideal one for Crowder however so even though he might have flex PPR appeal during the year this might not be the week to rely on him.
