Wide receivers

We start with the team’s intriguing wide receiver group to kick off our predictions for the 2021 receiving stats of the New York Jets‘ pass catchers.

Projecting the output of this unit is difficult considering how many new pieces the Jets added into the fray. Corey Davis and Keelan Cole were added via free agency, while Elijah Moore was added via the draft. They join Denzel Mims, Jamison Crowder, and Braxton Berrios in a deep lineup.

Moore’s presence makes it especially difficult to project this group’s production. He figures to be a prominent part of the passing attack, but predicting what a rookie will do is always a complete shot in the dark considering they have no NFL track record to go off of. There simply isn’t any evidence that can be used as a guide to predict his future.

Nevertheless, we’re going to take our best crack at it and lay out some predictions for the number of receptions, targets, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns that will be accumulated by players across the roster.

The predictions will be built around the 17-game stat line that I predicted for Zach Wilson.

As a refresher, here are the numbers I concocted as a reasonable projection for the Jets’ new franchise quarterback (using a combination of the passing statistics accumulated by 49ers quarterbacks during LaFleur’s tenure, the average performance level of rookie quarterbacks in recent history, and Wilson’s BYU numbers):
