The Jets selected quarterback Zach Wilson with the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL Draft, and he's expected to be their starter this year. He's not worth drafting in one-quarterback leagues, but he should be a mid-round pick in two-quarterback and Superflex formats. And in rookie-only drafts, Wilson will likely be a second- or third-round pick in one-quarterback leagues and a first-round selection in two-quarterback and Superflex formats for dynasty leagues. The Jets are building a decent offense this season with additions to their receiving corps, including free agent Corey Davis and second-round rookie Elijah Moore. Along with Denzel Mims and potentially Jamison Crowder, who could be cut or traded prior to training camp, Wilson will have capable options in the passing game, as well as rookie running back Michael Carter out of the backfield. If Wilson is ready to be a star coming out of BYU, then Fantasy managers can target him off the waiver wire in all leagues. Hopefully that happens in his rookie campaign.
The Jets selected Wilson in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, second overall. Wilson (6-foot-2, 214) was a standout three-year starter at BYU, where he showed dual-threat ability and intriguing arm talent that eventually made him the sole draft target of new head coach Robert Saleh. The Jets were locked onto Wilson all offseason, and this pick was one of the few that were all but settled going into the draft. Wilson's dual-threat abilities should prove interesting in an offensive scheme that means to emulate the structure built by Kyle Shanahan, who offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur served under with the 49ers previously. Wilson completed 73.5 percent of his pass attempts in his dominant 2020 season, averaging 11.0 yards per attempt while producing 3,692 yards with 33 touchdowns versus three interceptions. With the Jets he has a few interesting targets already lined up, especially Corey Davis and Denzel Mims on the outside.
