Garrett Wilson

21-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Rookie wideouts have been responsible for some big fantasy seasons of late, but Wilson faces more of an uphill climb than the typical first-round pick, joining a team with a crowded WR room and an inaccurate, young quarterback. The hope is that Zach Wilson can be Josh Allen 2.0, and the Jets front office did its part to nudge the dream (fantasy?) toward reality this offseason, taking Wilson at 10th overall and RB Breece Hall at No. 36. They also re-signed Braxton Berrios, who may be limited to the No. 4 role if Wilson, Elijah Moore and Corey Davis all stay healthy. Moore is the stronger breakout candidate following a big finish to his own rookie season, but it shouldn't shock anyone if Wilson ends up the Alpha instead. He was good enough to earn playing time at OSU as a true freshman, notching 430 yards and five TDs, before cranking it up to average 93.7 receiving yards per game between his sophomore and junior seasons. His numbers were quite similar to those of OSU teammate Chris Olave, who went 11th overall to the Saints this April, and both ran sub 4.4 40-yard dashes at the Combine as well. Wilson's 4.38 speed might leave him a half step behind Moore (4.35), but it should also put him a step ahead of most NFL defensive backs. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Wilson (6-foot, 183 pounds) was a highly productive receiver at Ohio State, where he produced 143 receptions for 2,213 yards and 23 touchdowns on 207 career targets (69.1 percent caught, 10.7 yards per target). While his light frame might limit him somewhat in heavier traffic, Wilson's athleticism and skill set should play well from any receiver position and at any depth of the field. His 4.38-second combine 40-yard dash time adds further credibility to the burst that's so apparent in his game tape, so he should prove a noteworthy big-play threat at receiver from Day 1 for the Jets. The question is how quickly he can get up to speed and compete for targets against a competent group of pass catchers in Elijah Moore, Corey Davis, Braxton Berrios and two noteworthy free agent signings at tight end.
