Enunwa's promotion to New York's second receiving role comes after he's already posted 17 catches on 25 targets for 183 yards and a touchdown through the team's first three games. Such production, and the fact that he led the Jets with 11 targets last week, makes Enunwa someone whose stock could continue to climb in Decker's absence, especially if Brandon Marshall, who dealt with a knee injury earlier, is slowed. Furthermore, if Decker's week-to-week ailment ultimately requires surgery, Enunwa could be in store for an extended uptick in production.
Enunwa had four catches on a team-high 11 targets for 37 yards during Sunday's 24-3 loss to the Chiefs.
While the number of targets for Enunwa is certainly encouraging, only four receptions is a disappointment. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was downright awful Sunday, as he was picked off six times, including five in the second half, giving the Jets' receivers little to work with for fantasy purposes. Top wideout Brandon Marshall came in with knee and foot injuries, though he still had 10 targets, while Eric Decker was limited to just six, showing that Fitzpatrick is getting more comfortable throwing to Enunwa. Unfortunately, the upcoming schedule is very tough, with the Jets hosting the Seahawks in Week 4 before traveling to face the Steelers and Cardinals.

Enunwa sustained the injury late in the third quarter. He had been Ryan Fitzpatrick's primary target in the first half, but had been relatively quiet in the third quarter before heading back to the locker room. The second-year receiver had recorded 92 yards on six receptions before leaving. Expect an update when his status is clarified.
