Jamison Crowder should be considered a sleeper in all leagues, and he's worth drafting as a high-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver with a mid-round pick in PPR. The Jets don't have a deep receiving corps, and Crowder will likely be the No. 1 option for quarterback Sam Darnold. Crowder will be the slot receiver for Adam Gase, which has worked well in the past (see Jarvis Landry in Miami). With the Jets in 2019, Crowder had seven games with at least 15 PPR points in the 13 games Darnold played. And that was with Robby Anderson on the roster, and Anderson is now in Carolina. Rookie Denzel Mims and Breshad Perriman were added to replace Anderson, but that shouldn't impact Crowder based on his role. He could end up as a starter in all leagues, especially in PPR, given his role for the Jets in 2020.
Crowder caught eight of 10 targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 13-6 win over Buffalo. Crowder scored the game's only touchdown from one yard out early in the fourth quarter. It was his sixth touchdown of the season, with all of that scoring coming in the final nine weeks. He dressed for all 16 games after signing a three-year deal with the Jets this past offseason, finishing with a career-high 78 catches despite missing starting quarterback Sam Darnold for three games. The slot receiver narrowly missed setting new personal bests in receiving yards (833) and touchdowns, as he had 847 yards and seven touchdowns with the Redskins back in 2016. If New York is able to upgrade on the outside in the offseason, that should open up even more room for Crowder to wreak havoc out of the slot.
Crowder caught four of eight targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 16-10 win over Pittsburgh. Crowder came back down to earth after last week's 90-yard, two-touchdown effort against the Ravens, but he still led the Jets in receiving yards here. The slot receiver has topped 60 yards in five of his past eight games, building some momentum in the second half of the season ahead of the Week 17 finale in Buffalo.
Crowder secured six of 11 targets for 90 yards and two touchdowns in the Jets' 42-21 loss to the Ravens on Thursday. Crowder paced the Jets in receptions, receiving yardage and touchdown catches, putting together a very timely fantasy-friendly performance after a disappointing three-game stretch during which he logged just seven receptions for 55 yards and no touchdowns. Crowder will look to continue his resurgence against the Steelers' tough secondary in a Week 16 matchup, a week from Sunday.
Crowder caught three of seven targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 22-21 win over Miami. Crowder has faded back into obscurity after three consecutive games with over 75 yards and a touchdown, totaling seven catches for 56 yards in three games since. His floor is higher in PPR formats, but Crowder will be tough to trust regardless of format against the Ravens in Week 15.
Crowder caught just two of nine targets for eight yards in Sunday's 22-6 loss to the Bengals. Crowder and quarterback Sam Darnold couldn't get on the same page in this one, as the slot receiver failed to crack double-digit receiving yards for the first time as a member of the Jets. His nine targets suggest that Crowder remains an integral part of the offense, and he'll have a nice opportunity to get back on track against the beatable Dolphins secondary in Week 14.
