The New York Jets knocked it out of the park in the draft this year. After taking Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner with the No. 4 overall pick, the Jets selected Garrett Wilson with the No. 10 pick.
While this pick means Deebo Samuel will not be a New York Jet, Wilson bolsters a wide receiver room that features Corey Davis and Elijah Moore.
Garrett Wilson NFL Draft Outlook
Wilson had a big year for an Ohio State offense that featured Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Chris Olave, reeling in 70 catches for 1,058 yards and 12 touchdowns. The Jets need more weapons for QB Zach Wilson, and that’s exactly what they got in picking the former Buckeye.

The Jets have a young and exciting offense that’s ready to explode. Garrett Wilson will have plenty of opportunities, as Zach Wilson will look to improve in year two.
Garrett Wilson Fantasy Football Outlook
New York will focus on putting the ball in Zach Wilson’s hands, giving him more opportunities to pass the ball. Garrett Wilson will make an immediate impact with the team, benefiting from lining up alongside Davis and Moore.
He’ll be a WR3 on the Jets and will be a WR3 in fantasy. He may get off to a slow start this season, but he’ll have that one week where he’ll pop off, and he’ll be the top target on the waiver wire. It’ll be safe to grab him when that happens.
For dynasty formats, Wilson should be someone to grab. He’s one of the top receivers in this draft, and by the end of the year should be one of Zach Wilson’s favorite targets. Expect Wilson to go top three in rookie drafts.
