Stewart caught six of 13 targets for 82 yards during the 2017 season. Stewart, a third-round pick out of Alabama, was active for 15 games but was never able to improve on the two receptions he had in the opening week against Buffalo. With a full season under his belt, there will surely be higher expectations for 2018, but his fantasy prospects will be more dependent on the other wideouts on the depth chart and who will be under center for the Jets.
Stewart was not targeted in Sunday's 35-27 loss to the Panthers. Stewart played nine of 70 offensive snaps and also saw some time on special teams, with Chad Hansen being the Jets' clear No. 3 option at receiver.
Stewart caught his lone target but didn't gain any yards during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. Stewart caught two passes back in Week 1 and Sunday's reception was just his third since. Fellow rookie Chad Hansen finally caught his first passes as a pro Sunday, and while both players should get more reps in light of Jeremy Kerley's four-game suspension, there is fairly minimal fantasy upside given the other options available to quarterback Josh McCown.
Stewart (groin) is active for Sunday's Week 10 tilt against the Buccaneers. The rookie has apparently sufficiently overcome the groin injury that he sustained in Thursday's practice to take a crack at the Buccaneers' vulnerable secondary Sunday. Stewart could see some extra snaps this week with Jeremy Kerley beginning his four-game suspension.
Coach Todd Bowles said Monday that Stewart will see an increased role while Jeremy Kerley serves a four-game suspension, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports. The rookie out of Alabama has only caught four balls for 36 yards so far this season, but with one of the Jets' top pass catchers now suspended, Stewart may get some extra looks. Whether it's enough action on the field to warrant fantasy value remains to be seen, but he should at least have the opportunity to showcase his talent.
