New York Jets QB Zach Wilson completed 1-for-7 passes in the red zone during team drills Friday, July 30, and he clearly struggled in his first NFL practice, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. Wilson completed 3-for-8 with an interception and threw a few others that nearly were picked off in the rest of practice, but Vacchiano noted it should be expected since Wilson is a rusty rookie quarterback who hadn't practiced in 43 days. To the contrary, Wilson completed a 50-yard pass to rookie WR Elijah Moore, which excited the team.
Huddle Up: As the long-time New York scribe said, Wilson struggling should be expected. It's early in camp for a new coaching regime and a rookie quarterback trying to digest everything on the fly. That said, gamers shouldn't have high expectations for Wilson to begin with in 2021. He undoubtedly will struggle at times in games, and while there may be a handful of eye-opening moments based on sheer talent, the overall outlook warrants little fantasy attention. He's a QB3 in the deepest of leagues and a mildly appealing flier in best-ball or superflex formats.

Updating previous reports, New York Jets QB Zach Wilson received a four-year, $35.1 million fully guaranteed deal. The deal includes a $22.9 million signing bonus and a fifth-year team option. The Jets got the offset language they wanted in the contract, which reduces what they'd have to pay Wilson if they cut him and he signs somewhere else. And Wilson will get his entire signing bonus paid within 15 days instead of having some of it deferred to 2022.
Huddle Up: Wilson will likely be the starter, but he should not be a starter in fantasy outside of two-QB leagues. He'll be one to watch if he gets off to a fast start.
