WR - FA
The New York Jets have waived WR Quincy Enunwa, who was set to spend the entire season on the PUP list with a neck injury.
It’s been a rollercoaster ride of late for Enunwa who just hasn’t been able to stay healthy in New York. At least he’s guaranteed $6M for the 2020 season, but I’m sure he’d rather be playing in the NFL. 2021 will be his next real opportunity to join another team and see if he can still play.
Jets WR Quincy Enunwa has been placed on the physically-unable-to-perform list and will miss the entire 2020 season.
Enunwa missed the entire 2017 and only played one game in 2019 after dealing with neck injuries. On his current four-year, $36M contract, Enunwa has only played in one game. He showed so much promise in 2016 when he hauled in 58 catches for 857 yards and four TDs. Aside from 2016, the 2014 sixth-round pick out of Nebraska has never had more than 449 yards in a season. One would have to believe that at this point Enunwa’s future in the NFL is very uncertain. From a fantasy perspective, give a slight bump up to the starting Jets wide receivers, Jamison Crowder, Breshad Perriman, and Denzel Mims.
Jets general manager Joe Douglas admitted that wide receiver Quincy Enunwa is a "big question mark" moving forward. Enunwa's 2019 season ended early due to a neck injury.
There are questions around whether or not Enunwa will suit up again, much less for the 2020 season. If he is able to return to health, he will likely factor into the competition for the team's third wide receiver, with Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman taking priority over Enunwa. And that's not considering the Jets could select a wide receiver early in the 2020 NFL Draft. At this point, Enunwa isn't someone to consider for fantasy purposes.
Quincy Enunwa suffered a neck injury in Sunday’s 17-16 loss to the Bills and will be shut down for the season.
Enunwa will be shut down for the season. He previously missed the entire 2017 season with a neck injury, but returned healthy in 2018. Enunwa signed a four-year, $36 million dollar contract in December. It is unclear at this time if the injury is career-threatening. The Jets acquired Demaryius Thomas on Tuesday, who will provide WR depth with Enunwa out.
Quincy Enunwa caught one of his three targets for -4 yards in the Jets' season opener, a dramatic loss to the Bills.
Enunwa was on the wrong side of the target distribution in this game. While better days are surely ahead for the size-speed specimen, he's likely to be a volatile fantasy option at best.
