Breshad Perriman, Denzel Mims Fantasy Waiver Wire Priorities in Jets Passing Game

The Jets and Joe Flacco looked like the Jets and Joe Flacco through the first 30 minutes of their Week 11 matchup against the Chargers. Through the first two quarters, Flacco was 3-for-8 passing for 30 yards, with zero of those completions going to Breshad PerrimanDenzel Mims, or Jamison Crowder. Then, Flacco and the wideouts exploded for an entertaining second half, en route to their 10th straight loss. Mims led all Jets receivers in targets (eight) and receiving yards (71 yards), while Perriman corralled a 40-yard touchdown for his third deep shot touchdown in the last two games.

Do you really want to hitch your fantasy playoff wagon to Perriman and Mims? Most likely not. But they’re both Week 12 fantasy waiver wire priorities as the top targets in an improving aerial attack.

“We thought we could run the ball early and take some gimme completions to move the chains,” Flacco said to reporters after the game. “We just weren’t able to do that. It never got to the point of where we were in the second half, when we were able to stretch the field a bit.”

Mims’ eight targets led the team and although he only came down with three of them, he drew two penalties downfield and Flacco peppered him as the game got competitive in the second half. Mims has broken the 40-yard mark in every game he’s played in this season and the future looks bright for the rookie from Baylor.

“That obviously wasn’t planned,” Gase said of the tough first half. “We were trying to do that in the first half. We called a couple of plays where the ball just didn’t go down the field. We talked about it at halftime and we said, ‘How can we get these guys the ball and have ’em make some plays?'”

With Sam Darnold out of the lineup and both Mims and Perriman healthy, they’ve both found some success with Flacco under center. It also makes sense because as bad as Flacco is at this time in his career, the arm strength is still there to hit both speedsters down the field.

“There were more opportunities out there in the second half, I feel like,” said Perriman, adding of his growing chemistry with Flacco, “It’s been good for the most part. Of course it could always be better. But it’s definitely going good.”

Looking forward, the Jets wideouts have a favorable schedule, as they take on the Dolphins, Raiders, Seahawks, Rams, and Browns. So, if you’re desperate, there are worse options out there during the stretch run.

Expect both Mims and Perriman to make jumps up The Wolf’s Rest of Season Big Board.
