Enunwa caught seven of 11 targets for 92 yards in Sunday's 20-12 loss to the Dolphins. Enunwa was Sam Darnold's go-to target throughout the contest, leading the team in yards, catches and targets. The wide receiver got wide open in the back of the end zone late in the first half, but his rookie quarterback overthrew him on what should have been an easy touchdown. Given his ability to create separation and prominent role in the offense, Enunwa should be universally owned after catching 13 balls for 155 yards and a touchdown through two weeks.
Enunwa caught six of 10 targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 48-17 win over the Lions. Enunwa's celebrated his first game since New Year's Day 2017 by leading the Jets in all receiving categories. The solidly built target emerged as a security blanket for rookie quarterback Sam Darnold early on, then powered in a 21-yard touchdown reception to start the second half. In doing so, Enunwa reminded onlookers of the player that paced New York in receiving prior to the neck problem that sidelined him all of last season. While Robby Anderson and Terrelle Pryor also showed well Monday, Enunwa could be the most consistent option in the team's passing attack, as his return performance indicated.
Enunwa is listed as the direct backup to Jermaine Kearse (abdomen) on the Jets' initial depth chart ahead of the team's Week 1 matchup with the Lions. That distinction likely means that Enunwa should benefit most in the event Kearse's injury forces him to sit out the season opener. Even when Kearse was healthy, Enunwa was beginning to generate some buzz in the fantasy community. The physical wideout missed all of last season with a neck injury, but looks to be back at full health heading into the current campaign. Enunwa's excellent route running should allow him to play both outside and in the slot as he looks to recapture the form that aided him to 58 receptions, 857 yards and four touchdowns in 2016.
Enunwa (thumb) had a strong weekend on the practice field, Newsday's Bob Glauber reports. Looking to rebound from a lost 2017 season, Enunwa made it back for the start of training camp but then missed a couple weeks with a thumb injury. An impressive run at practice puts him on the right track for Friday's preseason game against the Giants, which would be his first in-game appearance since December 2016. It's probably too late for the 26-year-old to push Jermaine Kearse for the No. 2 job, but a role as the No. 3 receiver is still within reach.
Enunwa (thumb) is in uniform for Thursday's preseason game against Washington, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports. That said, previous reports suggested that the wideout wasn't expected to play, a notion echoed by Brian Costello of the New York Post. Enunwa is thus a very risky roll in DFS formats this week.
