Fantasy Impact: Jets WR Quincy Enunwa Lost for the Season

As if the New York Jets weren't already a fantasy black hole heading into the 2017 season, No. 1 receiver Quincy Enunwa has been lost for the campaign due to a neck injury he suffered in practice this week. 

Enunwa, a fourth-year pro from Nebraska, was expected to take over as the Jets' top receiver after the team released both Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker during the offseason. 

The undrafted free agent broke out big time in 2016, recording 58 receptions for 857 yards and four touchdowns despite disastrous quarterback play in Jersey. 

With Enunwa done for the season, the likes of Robby Anderson, Jalin Marshall and Charone Peake head the team's depth chart at receiver. The three combined for just 77 receptions last season. For his part, Marshall is suspended the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. 

This could potentially open the door for rookie mid-round picks Chad Hansen and ArDarius Stewart to make impacts. But relying on anyone on the Jets' roster seems to be pointless, especially with Josh McCown set to start under center in New York. Enunwa was really the only viable fantasy option here.
