Mike White is dealing with a rib injury after he was rocked throughout the Jets’ 20-12 loss at Buffalo, including being forced to leave twice because of a pair of particularly rough — but legal — hits. He went to the hospital after the game for precautionary exams, was cleared and flew home with the team.
Coach Robert Saleh said White’s rib injury will make him day to day, but he’s “hopeful” he’ll start Sunday against Detroit. White is planning to be under center with the Jets (7-6) trying to continue their playoff push.
“I’m going to prepare as such,” White said. “I feel like I can play. I feel like I’m ready to roll.”
White added from the story, “I feel good. I mean, I don’t feel like 100 bucks because I just played a football game. But, nah, I feel good.” Seems like White will be good to go for Week 15, but of course keep an eye on his practice status this week. He's got a potential high-scoring matchup with the Lions. He's played well since taking over for Wilson and has brought fantasy relevance to players like Wilson and Moore.
NYJ WR Garrett Wilson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Seattle Seahawks
Garrett Wilson was targeted nine times for the second straight week and it produced four receptions for the second straight week. The issue was he only had 30 receiving yards with QB Zach Wilson at the helm. Good news is Mike White is back at quarterback this week.
Wilson faces the Seahawks who are ranked third in aFPA to wide receivers. Seattle has been very good against the pass and especially good at home.
Start Wilson as a high-end WR2 for Week 17. The return of White will help Wilson but the matchup is not a favorable one on the road for the Jets.
