Jets WR Quincy Enunwa is the favorite for the No. 3 receiver job.
Enunwa played 537 snaps as a hybrid WR/TE last year. With Devin Smith (ACL) sidelined, Enunwa projects for a similar role to open this season, though Jace Amaro’s return might cut into Enunwa’s slot targets. Jul 23 - 2:39 PM

The New York Post's Brian Costello believes Jets WR Quincy Enunwa will retain his role from last season.

Enunwa caught 22 passes for 315 yards playing as a hybrid slot receiver and tight end last season. That role is unlikely to generate fantasy value, but he should continue to see plenty of snaps. Jace Amaro could eat into Enunwa's targets if he can prove healthy and effective.
Jul 5 - 11:18 AM

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa caught 1-of-4 targets for five yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Bills.

He also had an ugly drop on a shovel pass. Enunwa played a slot/H-back role in his first season as a legitimate NFL contributor, aligning at slot receiver across from Eric Decker in four-wide packages. Enunwa finished with a 22-315-0 receiving line in 2015. Turning 24 in May, Enunwa is under contract through the 2017 season and should return to compete for a similar role in 2016.
Jan 3 - 4:37 PM

Quincy Enunwa caught 2-of-4 targets for 69 yards in the Jets' Week 16 win over the Patriots.

Enunwa's gains went for 21 and 48 yards. His missed connections were both deep balls he probably should have caught. Enunwa is a role player without fantasy value.

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (neck) is active for Week 16 against the Patriots.

What it mainly means is that the Jets don't have to play Jeremy Kerley on offense. Inactive for the Jets are QB Bryce Petty, CB Dee Milliner, SS Dion Bailey, LB Taiwan Jones, RG Dakota Dozier, OT Ben Ijalana and LB Josh Martin.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 11:33:00 AM

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (neck) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Enunwa was a limited participant in practice this week. If he can't go against the Patriots, the Jets could turn to Jeremy Kerley as their slot receiver bookending Eric Decker, with Brandon Marshall and Kenbrell Thompkins outside.
Fri, Dec 25, 2015 04:23:00 PM

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (neck) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The limited practice suggests it's a day-to-day injury. Kenbrell Thompkins would see more snaps if Enunwa sits.
Wed, Dec 23, 2015 05:14:00 PM

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa caught 4-of-4 targets for 49 yards in Saturday night's Week 15 win over the Cowboys.

Enunwa made a number of critical first-down catches to move the chains. Although an intriguing size-speed prospect, 23-year-old Enunwa carries little fantasy appeal beyond deep Dynasty leagues. Enunwa is used as an H-back and frequent blocker as a big-bodied slot player in the Jets' four-wide spread.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 12:12:00 AM

Jets activated WR Quincy Enunwa from the reserve/suspended list.

Enunwa was playing heavy snaps before he was banned. His return should mean less playing time for Jeremy Kerley and Devin Smith. Enunwa isn't on the fantasy radar.
Mon, Nov 16, 2015 01:57:00 PM

NFL suspended Jets WR Quincy Enunwa four games for violating the league's personal-conduct policy.

The ban is related to Enunwa's September 2014 arrest on domestic violence charges. Enunwa has been heavily utilized this season, playing 49-of-67 snaps in Sunday's win over the Redskins. He has only eight catches, however. Enunwa's absence will likely mean more snaps for Devin Smith, or perhaps even Jeremy Kerley.
Mon, Oct 19, 2015 03:21:00 PM

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa caught 5-of-10 targets for 50 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

Enunwa was inserted for a bigger role due to Eric Decker and Chris Owusu's injuries, but dropped a first-quarter pass after committing two drops in the Jets' first two games. Enunwa did make a difficult catch deep down the middle late in the second quarter, gaining 27. Enunwa does appear to be an improving young player, but his playing time will be reduced once Decker and Owusu get back. Enunwa is just a WR6/7 stash in Dynasty leagues.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 04:42:00 PM

Quincy Enunwa is expected to take on an expanded offensive role Week 3 against the Eagles if Eric Decker (knee) can't play.

Deep threat No. 3 receiver Chris Owusu (leg) is also up in the air for Week 3, which means Enunwa could be elevated all the way to No. 2 behind Brandon Marshall. Enunwa is mostly a blocker, but the coaching staff reportedly loves him. He'd be a candidate for five-plus targets Sunday in a game the Jets will be up in pace. Enunwa wasn't targeted Week 1 and dropped two passes Week 2.
Wed, Sep 23, 2015 12:43:00 PM

Quincy Enunwa caught 1-of-3 targets for 27 yards in the Jets' Week 2 win over the Colts on Monday night.

Enunwa dropped the two balls he didn't catch. The coaching staff really likes the second-year receiver as the No. 4 behind Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, and Chris Owusu, but he's best utilized as a blocker on the outside.
Tue, Sep 22, 2015 12:10:00 AM

According to ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini, the team is "smitten" with second-year WR Quincy Enunwa.

Coach Todd Bowles called the 2014 sixth-round pick a "tweener" due to his 6'2/225 size and above-average blocking skills for a receiver. With Jace Amaro (shoulder) done for the season, Enunwa could have a real role on offense. OC Chan Gailey used four-receiver sets on a league-high 586 snaps from 2010-2012 in Buffalo. Enunwa and Brandon Marshall make for ideal slot players.
Tue, Sep 1, 2015 07:11:00 PM

Quincy Enunwa caught one pass for six yards in the Jets' second preseason game.

Enunwa worked with the first-team offense with Jeremy Kerley getting most his work with the second unit. With Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker rotating into the slot, the Jets can afford to have a less-traditional No. 3 like Enunwa. Despite the promotion, the Jets passing offense will not be prolific enough to support Enunwa as a fantasy asset.
