Draft note
by John Paulsen
Wilson was the second receiver off the board in the first round of the NFL Draft, which certainly shows intent on the side of the Jets. He charted very well as a route-runner at Reception Perception. Matt Harmon added that Wilson “just feels like an all-around solid prospect who thrives in multiple facets of playing the position.” The primary concern is his rookie season role–will he be the WR1 with Elijah Moore around?–and suspect quarterback play, though Zach Wilson could progress in his second season.

NYJ WR Garrett Wilson - 2022 Fantasy Football Outlook

2022 Fantasy Upside
Garrett Wilson was the second receiver take in the 2022 NFL Draft as the Jets truly believe he will be eventually a No. 1 receiver for the team. The skill set is there and should translate to the NFL. The fact that Wilson played in the slot and then moved outside his last year in college show his versatility. That works out good for New York as Wilson be more on the perimeter to compliment Elijah Moore who is a true slot receiver. Many thought Wilson was a little bit unpolished coming out of school, but his success early could hinge on the ability to make plays after the catch.

2022 Fantasy Downside
The NFL saw two rookie receivers over the past two seasons take the league by storm and that could happen again with Wilson. However, it usually takes a couple of seasons for receivers to be dominant in the league. Wilson also could be crippled by the quarterback play if Zach Wilson doesn't improve during his second season.

2022 Bottom Line
Wilson is going to get playing time and opportunities. Where you draft him probably depends more on the quarterback play and the offense overall. Right now, Wilson only ranks as a low-end WR4 entering the 2022 season. Selecting him as high as the 10th round is realistic if you believe in the Jets but you are getting better value selecting him in the 12th round.
