Overview

Quincy Enunwa
Team: New York Jets
College: Nebraska
Age: 26
Height/Weight: 6'2
", 225 pounds
2014 NFL Draft: Round 6, Pick 209 overall

Enunwa was drafted in 2014, but his rookie season ended with only one appearance and wasn't able to record any statistics. He finished the season being suspended for four games of the 2015 season without pay, due to violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy.

In 2015, once he was re-activated from his suspension he played in all of the remaining 12 games, catching 22 passes for 315 yards. 2016 put Enunwa into the slot, with the team struggling with a lack of tight ends. The Jets were also missing Eric Decker through injury, leading to Enunwa being towards the top of his teams receiving statistics. Enunwa finished the season having caught 58 passes for 857 yards, and four touchdowns.

2017 was another lost season for Enunwa, being placed on the injured reserve for bulging discs in his neck, and requiring surgery.

2018 was a return to health for Enunwa, playing 11 games and finishing with 38 receptions for 449 yards and a touchdown. Enunwa again finished the season on injured reserve again, this time with an ankle injury. However, that didn't stop the team signing him to a four-year, $36 million contract extension. He has flashed talent at times but hasn't stayed on the field long enough to be a consistent threat for the Jets or fantasy league owners.

 

Dynasty Value

Enunwa still has youth on his side, and has a young quarterback in Sam Darnold that he will be able to build his relationship with.

One wrinkle is that the team have just signed Le'Veon Bell to a big contract, and that implies they are going to lean on him on offense. According to Fantasy Football Calculator, Enunwa is not being drafted in dynasty startups at the moment.

While Enunwa has the opportunity to be a leading slot receiver, the recent signing of Jamison Crowder would mean that he is likely to push out to the perimeter this season.

 

Possible Trades

Enunwa has questionable value at best at the moment, meaning that it is very difficult to really buy in on getting a valuable piece back. I think you are likely to be looking at a second/third round pick (around the turn) if you wanted a rookie pick.

Looking at running backs, you are likely looking at someone who has barriers to being successful with players lower on the depth chart like Kalen Ballage, or players who have little tread on the tires like LeSean McCoy.

The wide receiver options are questionable, but you could hope to snag some young upside players like Josh Reynolds or try and snag a veteran like Larry Fitzgerald if you aren't worried about youth and prefer a more immediate upside play for 2019 only.

 

Conclusion

Enunwa certainly has fantasy value if he returns to the slot position that he was able to be effective in. If he is pushed out to the perimeter, then his value is limited. The Jets are bound to focus on the running game more often with Bell on board, so If I could move him on for a young upside piece I likely would.
