2021 Draft Rankings

Corey Davis Note

We got somewhat of a breakout season from Davis last year, as he finished with 65 receptions for 984 yards and five touchdowns despite missing two games and playing second fiddle to A.J. Brown. He signed with the Jets in free agency and figures to be their go-to receiver, though there are suddenly tons of mouths to feed in New York. The Jets also added Keelan Cole in free agency, drafted Elijah Moore in the second round, and managed to restructure Jamison Crowder's contract to keep him in town. On top of all that, they have a rookie quarterback under center, which presents another obstacle. Davis is likely to be the leader in targets, but he may not have enough consistency to be a weekly WR3. Ideally, you draft him as a WR4 to play in spots.

Elijah Moore Note

While scouting Moore this offseason, I came away saying, "that guy is a natural football player." The game seemed to come easy to him, which is the same thing I said about Tee Higgins. They're different players, but some are just born to play this game. So, to hear about Moore tearing up the offseason workouts, it didn't surprise me. What did surprise me was them re-working Jamison Crowder's contract to keep him with the team. His presence is going to be an issue for Moore's ceiling in his rookie year. The hope for Moore is that they'll use him in a Curtis Samuel-type role where they manufacture touches for him to give fantasy managers weekly usability. He's certainly someone to keep an eye on.

Jamison Crowder Note

It's a shame the Jets re-worked Crowder's contract to keep him with the team because I'm not really sure where he fits in. The Jets are head over heels in love with Elijah Moore, who projects as someone who'll play quite a few slot snaps. They also went out and snagged Corey Davis in free agency, so he'll be their top receiver. You mustn't forget that Adam Gase is no longer the head coach, and Sam Darnold is no longer the quarterback. Removing those two is bad for Crowder's production, as both loved the slot very much. The Jets suddenly have a crowded depth chart at wide receiver, meaning Crowder might not even play a full-time role.

Denzel Mims Note

Yes, Mims was drafted in the second round last year. However, that doesn't matter much anymore. The Jets brought in a new coaching staff, and with that, they brought in a multitude of pass catchers. First, it was Corey Davis, who's built nearly identical to Mims (both 6-foot-3, just two pounds apart). Next, it was Keelan Cole, who's been underutilized throughout his career. Lastly, they drafted Elijah Moore, who's a utility blade in the offense. Oh, and they still haven't released Jamison Crowder. He's going to have a tough time seeing the field on a consistent basis.
