The Jets lost their best two receivers and now find themselves in definite rebuilding mode for this group. Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson provide some promise, but after that, New York had little as far as receivers go. At tight end, the Jets have Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who is a big name but has failed to live up to expectations, as he only managed 55 receptions, 713 yards, and 7 touchdowns over four years after struggling with injury.
Sammy Watkins gets all of the press even though he has been a major disappointment for this Bills squad. Tight end Charles Clay, led the team last year in receptions and was tied for the lead in receiving touchdowns with 4. The wild card on this unit, is second round draft pick Zay Jones, who was a monster in college and could be a factor early, if he develops a relationship with his quarterback.
The Dolphins have become a very effective running team, but they also bring some pop from the receiving side as well. Jarvis Landry and Devante Parker are developing into solid possession receivers, while Kenny Stills averaged over 17 yards per catch for Miami and is definitely becoming a dangerous deep threat. If he can return to his form from a few years ago, newly acquired, Julius Thomas could be a major factor for this team.
If the first person that comes to your mind when you think of this unit is anyone but Gronk, you better adjust your thinking. He is an absolute monster. Yet, New England just went out and added Brandin Cooks to a potent receiver stable that already includes Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Chris Hogan. In a Bill Belichick led offense, anybody could be a superstar throwing to these guys.
