WR - NYJ - OPT-OUT
This Week Outlook
Jets WR Josh Doctson has opted out of the 2020 season.
Doctson was unlikely to be much of a fantasy factor this year. A former first-round pick of the Washington Football Team, Docston signed with the Jets back in February.
The Jets have signed wide receiver Josh Doctson.
Docston, a former first round pick, spent most of the 2019 season with the Vikings. However, he played in one game and didn't catch any passes. He'll be receiver depth for the Jets in 2020.
The Vikings waived wide receiver Josh Doctson.
Doctson played just 11 snaps in Week 11 for Minnesota. The former first round pick will now look elsewhere for a job. His departure is likely a signal that Adam Thielen (hamstring) is ready to return.
The Minnesota Vikings have designated Josh Doctson to return from injured reserve.
Josh Doctson will begin practicing today and could provide a solid red zone weapon for a quarterback he already has a rapport with in Kirk Cousins. Doctson is unlikely to play his way into fantasy relevance in season long leagues, but may be worth a matchup based look in DFS contests once he returns. He will be the number three receiver at best on a run heavy team.
Vikings wide receiver Josh Doctson is being placed on injured reserve with a leg injury, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport. He is a candidate to return later in the season.
The leg injury is likely the hamstring issue that Doctson has been dealing with lately, and the move to injured reserve gives him time to heal while also getting acclimated with a new playbook after just signing with Minnesota a week ago. He is unlikely to be relevant in most fantasy formats this season, but he is a former first round pick of Washington who some in the league still believe has some potential.
