New York Jets WR Denzel Mims might be held back a little by not having a true offseason program, but SNY's Ralph Vacchiano believes he will be 'a big contributor at some point in Year 1.'
Huddle Up: It would be mildly surprising if Mims didn't make an impact in 2020, as the only real threat to his playing time on the outside is Breshad Perriman. As Vacchiano notes, the rookie offers size, speed and skills that just doesn't exist anywhere else on the depth chart. While Jamison Crowder and Chris Herndon figure to be the primary targets in the passing game, Mims should emerge as the clear No. 2 receiver by the end of the season and be a worthy fantasy WR5 at worst.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims says his blocking ability is one of his top traits and it helps him in other areas of his game. 'I can say the strongest part of my game is really my blocking,' Mims said. 'I am a guy that really loves to block and I take pride in that. You got to block for your running backs and your quarterback because if I want the ball and I want them to be able to trust me, I feel like I need to think the game when it comes to blocking first. Then, I will be able to catch the balls.'
Huddle Up: Mims could become the Jets' No. 1 option in the passing game early in his rookie season, as he gets set to compete with Breshad Perriman, Josh Doctson and Jamison Crowder for looks from QB Sam Darnold. He's a late-round target as a WR4/5 in redraft leagues, but he has a promising future in keeper/dynasty leagues.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims likely will receive immediate playing time as a rookie unless the team signs another veteran receiver this offseason.
Huddle Up: Mims has a chance to join the starting lineup during his rookie season and should be part of the three-receiver sets even if he does not start. He has a chance to be at least a No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims likely will be a red zone target in the passing game during his rookie season, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Rich Cimini.
Huddle Up: Mims likely will be able to win a top-three receiver job with the Jets in 2020 and should see a solid amount of targets. Fantasy players can be considered Mims as a late round option in drafts that could be more valuable as the season goes on.
