Jets WR Chris Owusu (concussion) is out for Week 8 against the Raiders.

Owusu was never expected to play this week after suffering the fifth concussion of his career Sunday against New England. With Devin Smith (ankle) also sidelined, Jeremy Kerley will have to play a bigger role this week.
Oct 30 - 1:07 PM

Jets WR Chris Owusu is in the league's concussion protocol.

He's had multiple brain injuries, and coach Todd Bowles admitted it's "very concerning." Deep-threat Owusu can be considered week-to-week.
Oct 28 - 3:25 PM

Chris Owusu caught 2-of-4 targets for 25 yards in the Jets' Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

With Quincy Enunwa suspended, Owusu and Jeremy Kerley alternated snaps behind Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall. Owusu is not on the fantasy radar.
Oct 25 - 5:52 PM

The Newark Star-Ledger expects Chris Owusu (probable, knee) to return as the No. 3 receiver.

Owusu is back to full health after missing the last three games. He'll start in three-wide sets with Quincy Enunwa serving a four-game suspension. Devin Smith will continue to be limited as a situational deep threat.
Oct 24 - 2:38 PM

Chris Owusu (knee) is listed as probable for Week 7 against the Patriots.

Sunday marks Owusu's first game action in over a month. He's back to full health after undergoing a knee scope in late September. Expect Owusu to cut into Devin Smith's workload.
Oct 23 - 4:40 PM

Chris Owusu (knee) returned to practice Wednesday.

It puts him on track to play Sunday. Owusu has missed the last three games recovering from his knee scope.
Oct 21 - 6:21 PM

Chris Owusu (knee) is listed as doubtful for Week 6.

Owusu will miss at least one more game before returning from his knee scope. Devin Smith and Quincy Enunwa will continue to play in four-wide sets.
Oct 16 - 7:15 PM

Jets WR Chris Owusu (knee) isn't practicing this week.

Owusu likely needs one more game off before returning from his late-September knee scope. Behind Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall, the Jets will go with Devin Smith and Quincy Enunwa as sub-package wideouts against the Redskins.
Oct 14 - 7:57 PM

Chris Owusu had his knee scope on Thursday and will miss at least three weeks.

The Jets are looking thin at wide receiver this week with Owusu already ruled out and Eric Decker dealing with a PCL injury. That's good news for Brandon Marshall, who should get as many targets as he can handle against an Eagles secondary led by slow-starter Byron Maxwell.
Sep 24 - 1:56 PM

Jets WR Chris Owusu (leg) could miss two weeks.

Scratch Owusu off your Week 3 DFS sleepers list. The Jets will be forced to sign a receiver if Eric Decker (knee) also can't go against the Eagles. Jeremy Kerley is about to be forced back into a role on offense. Quincy Enunwa has logged 43 percent of the Jets' snaps so far and could be a starter in Week 3.
Sep 22 - 5:18 PM

Jets WR Chris Owusu is dealing with a leg injury, and the team is unsure of the severity.

Owusu is a candidate for a bigger role if Eric Decker (knee) misses Week 3, but now appears just as questionable as Decker. Owusu isn't on the radar in 12-14 team leagues.
Sep 22 - 5:00 PM

Chris Owusu failed to catch any of his three targets in the Jets' Week 2 win over the Colts on Monday night.

Owusu got the start in the Jets' three-wide set to open the game, but he's a distant third or fourth option in the passing game as the deep threat. Ryan Fitzpatrick took a couple shots to him, but came up empty. Owusu isn't a fantasy option.
Sep 22 - 12:16 AM

Chris Owusu caught 4-of-6 targets for 55 yards in Week 1 against the Browns.

Owusu was the No. 3 receiver behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. It's a surprise after the Jets waived him during final cuts. Owusu isn't on the redraft radar.
Sep 13 - 5:17 PM

Jets re-signed WR Chris Owusu.

Owusu was waived at final cuts, but cleared waivers and the Jets apparently didn't see anything they liked better on the waiver wire. Owusu returns to provide depth at wide receiver. He can also contribute on special teams.
