2021 Fantasy Outlook
Hamstring injuries delayed Mims’ NFL debut until Week 7 last season, but he saw consistent targets for the next six games, eclipsing 40 yards in each. A foot injury and a concussion ruined the latter part of his year, but all things considered — poor quarterback play, short ramp-up time and injuries — Mims had a credible rookie season. At 6-3, 207, and with a 4.38 40, Mims profiles as a downfield playmaker and red-zone threat. He’s still a little raw, though, and he’ll have to battle for targets with newly signed wide receiver Corey Davis and rookie slot man Elijah Moore. That said, Mims has a good chance to start outside opposite Davis and has the physical skills to be a star should the team receive adequate quarterback play from rookie first-round pick Zach Wilson.

The Jets have added Corey Davis and Keelan Cole to a wideout group that returns Mims and Jamison Crowder, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The Jets likely envision Davis, Crowder and Mims as their top three, in some order, with Cole then filling in as a high-end No. 4 who can be the top backup for multiple receiver spots. Mims was held back by hamstring injuries and a concussion during his rookie season, but as a recent second-round pick he should have every chance to lock down a starting job. He'll likely be catching his passes from a rookie QB, with the majority of mock drafts linking the Jets to BYU's Zach Wilson.

Mac Jones market projections should wonder less about the first three picks and start asking whether he belongs in the first round at all.
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Drafted with the 59th overall pick, Mims could vie with Breshad Perriman before long to be the team's top outside wideout. At 6-3, 207, and running a 4.38 40, Mims has the physical and athletic profile to be a No. 1 NFL receiver. He's not especially quick, though, and his route running needs work, which is probably why he went in the late second rather than in the first round. Jamison Crowder might lead the team in targets out of the slot, and Perriman was signed to be the team's downfield threat, so Mims isn't assured much as a rookie. But none of those players is a formidable obstacle should Mims surprise with his readiness at the next level. Of course, Mims' outlook, like that of his fellow receivers, depends as well on the progress of third-year quarterback Sam Darnold.
