Zach Wilson

22-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
New York Jets
2021 Fantasy Outlook
The second overall pick in this year's draft, Wilson is the new starting QB after the Jets traded Sam Darnold to Carolina. Wilson brings a powerful arm that can make any throw, including downfield passes on the run, and he has good accuracy to every level. At BYU last season, he completed 73.5 percent of his passes (2nd in FBS) with 33 TDs and three INTs. Wilson also has excellent mobility and athleticism, though at 6-2, 214, he lacks ideal size. And while he was a three-year collegiate starter, he was also a one-year wonder, throwing 23 TD passes in 18 games his first two seasons. Wilson needs to be quicker at reading defenses and working through progressions. Nevertheless, his skill set is a good match for an offensive system that should be similar to Kyle Shanahan's. Head coach Robert Saleh and OC Mike LaFleur both come from the 49ers, and the offense likely will feature a lot of play-action, boots and throwing on the move, all of which Wilson excels at. The Jets used their next two picks after Wilson to help their new QB, trading up to draft Morris Trophy winner Alijah Vera-Tucker at 14th overall and later using the 34th pick on WR Elijah Moore, who ran a 4.35 40 at his pro day. They also signed Corey Davis and are counting on Denzel Mims developing in his second year. Perhaps with a new regime in New York, Wilson will fare better than the team's other young QBs in recent years. Read Past Outlooks

With a full practice under his belt to begin Week 13 prep, the rookie quarterback this Sunday against the 5-7 Eagles, who have allowed an average of 228.4 passing yards per game to date.
