Denzel Mims

24-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
New York Jets
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.

Just eight catches in second year

January 14, 2022
Mims caught eight of 23 targets for 133 yards in 11 games during the 2021 season.
ANALYSIS
Mims was frequently in the doghouse, and his on-field play explained why. His routes were rarely crisp, and when Mims managed to get open, he was plagued by drops. It's a major indictment on his development that Mims barely saw the field down the stretch, even as the Jets were routinely without their top two or three wide receivers due to injuries. The 2020 second-round pick out of Baylor has all the physical attributes to excel in the NFL, but he's far from guaranteed a spot on the roster next season after his subpar performance in 2021.

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.
