New York Jets WR Denzel Mims posted one catch for 40 yards on his only target in Week 1 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Mims can be a solid downfield threat, but he is going to need more targets to break into the lineup in most fantasy leagues. He should remain reserved in Week 2 against the New England Patriots.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims (undisclosed) left practice early Thursday, Aug. 19, but avoided a major injury, according to a report.
Huddle Up: Good preliminary news for Mims, the second-year player who's in battle to retain his starting spot and isn't really draftable right now for fantasy outside of deeper, WR-heavy leagues. We'll keep peeled for further updates.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims ate bad salmon during the spring, triggering a bout of food poisoning that caused him to lose 20 pounds, vomit for two weeks and required antibiotics because of an intestinal infection. It reportedly took him two more months to regain the weight.
Huddle Up: It has been shocking to witness how quickly Mims has fallen down the depth chart, but it appears now we have a good reason as to why it happened. Mims played too well in his brief time as a rookie to not make a better impression on the new staff, and it sounds as if he is finally starting to get back to that form in practice. It might take some more time for him to work his way back up New York's suddenly deep depth chart at receiver, but it could easily happen at some point in September.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims has the speed and skills to excel as a deep threat, but the Jets' new offense calls for more precise routes in the short and intermediate game and work inside the numbers. 'He plays big on the outside. He's got the length and the radius,' new offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur said of Mims. 'We're gonna get him playing better inside the numbers.'
Huddle Up: Mims, a second-round pick in 2020, was limited to 23 catches for 357 yards and no TDs in nine games due to injury last season, but has been running with the second and third team with N.Y. adding wideouts Corey Davis, Elijah Moore and Keelan Cole this offseason. He should go undrafted in the majority of standard-size re-draft leagues unless we get an inkling that he's going to be more involved in the Jets' offense.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims 'isn't even among the best five receivers' on this year's roster, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Mims was stuck working with the second-team during minicamp, and there doesn't appear to be a lot of optimism surrounding the second-year receiver. At this point, he doesn't need to be selected in redraft leagues.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims was one of the team's few receivers not to get any snaps with the first team on the first day of minicamp Tuesday, June 15, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.
Huddle Up: Mims has reportedly worked behind free-agent addition Keelan Cole for much of the offseason, so it appears the second-year receiver is not a favorite of the new coaching staff. It's a bit shocking from the standpoint that he flashed in the second half of last season once he got healthy despite how inept the Jets were offensively. At this point, it would not be surprising if New York looks to trade him this summer.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims (illness) is dealing with an illness not related to COVID-19 but was expected to practice Friday, June 4, according to head coach Robert Saleh.
Huddle Up: Mims was limited to nine games during his rookie season and finished with 23 receptions and 357 yards. He likely will be a top-three receiver for the Jets in 2021 but probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims (head) left the Week 17 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Huddle Up: Mims can return to the game if he is cleared by the doctors, so fantasy players can check to see if he returns to the field.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Mims was held to a season-low 18 yards in the last game and will have a tough matchup again this week. He can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Mims played well earlier in the season but has been limited to 58 yards over the last two games. He will see a handful of targets this week, but fantasy players in most leagues should be able to find better options.
