  • Asked earlier this week about the quarterbacks for this weekend’s matchup, Jets coach Robert Saleh said: “We’re putting everything on the table.”
  • Saleh’s speech after the 10-3 defeat patrioticWhereas Wilson completed just nine of 22 passes for 77 yards.
  • After that loss, Wilson was asked if he thought he would weaken his defense. He replied, “No.”


Wilson and the Jets were limited to just two yards of offense in the second half of Sunday’s loss, which dropped them to 6-4 on the season. The Jets are 5-2 with Wilson as the starter. Both losses came against the Patriots.

Despite his record, Wilson, the No. 2 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, ranked statistically as one of the worst quarterbacks this season. He threw just four touchdowns in seven games but threw five interceptions. According to Trumedia, among quarterbacks who have played at least seven games this year, Wilson’s passer rating of 72.6 is 30th and his completion percentage is 55.6.

White appeared in four games for the Jets last season, completing 66.7 percent of his pass attempts for 953 yards, five touchdowns and eight interceptions.

White’s possible fantasy effects

White can be more than just a boost Garrett Wilson. White completed 66.7 percent of his passes (132) last year, targeting 53.8 percent to wideouts and 37.9 percent to running backs. That running back number will rank first by more than 10 percentage points in 2022 (Justin Herbert second at 27.4 percent).

We won’t start Moore in Week 12, but should be with Garrett Wilson and Carter Moore back off waivers. – the calf

what are they saying

Saleh said Wilson’s career with the Jets isn’t over. The intention is that he “will be back on the football field at some point this year.”

The coach added that Wilson “needs to reset” because there are some “fundamental, fundamental things” that have gone awry for him.
