News: Jets defensive back Kyle Wilson finished with six tackles (five solo) for the second game in a row during New York's 7-6 win over Arizona in Week 13. Prior to his recent two-game stretch, Wilson has exceeded five tackles only once in the first 10 weeks of the season.
Analysis: Wilson has started to find a groove in the Jets defense after he was thrust into the starting lineup to replace All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis. He hasn't produced the solid interception totals as Revis, but is now five tackles shy of established a career high (42). Fantasy owners should continue to view Wilson as a marginal option in IDP formats.
News: With star defensive back Darrelle Revis out for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL in his left knee, the Jets are expected to turn to third-year cornerback Kyle Wilson in his absence. Wilson finished with two tackles after replacing Revis during New York's 23-20 overtime win over Miami in Week 3. He has nine total tackles and an interception through three games on the season.
Analysis: Wilson started in Revis' place during Week 2 against Pittsburgh and saw several passes on his side of the field as the Steelers took advantage of his inexperience. That trend is likely to continue as opponents key on Wilson, who is attempting to replace a shut-down corner who has secured a trip to the Pro Bowl that past four seasons. Wilson could see a decent numbers of tackles and is worth tracking in Fantasy IDP formats.
News: Jets defensive back Kyle Wilson matched a career high with seven tackles during New York's 27-10 loss at Pittsburgh in Week 2. Wilson earned a spot in the starting lineup in place of injured cornerback Darrelle Revis (concussion) and recorded six tackles on his own.
Analysis: With Revis inactive Sunday, the Steelers threw the ball to Wilson's side of the field often as Antonio Brown and Mike Wallace combined for 12 receptions for 153 yards and a touchdown. The Boise State product could earn more playing time if Revis continues to be sidelined and he already has one interception on the season. Still, he remains a low-end Fantasy option at this point.
News: New York DB Kyle Wilson intercepted a Rex Grossman pass during the Week 13 34-19 win at Washington Sunday. Wilson picked off Grossman late to help secure the win for the Jets. Wilson finished with three total tackles on the afternoon.
Analysis: The 24-year-old out of Boise State intercepted his second pass of the season on Sunday against the Redskins. He has 32 tackles on the year for the Jets. Wilson is just a low-end Fantasy option in IDP formats heading into Week 14 against the Chiefs.
News: Jets DB Kyle Wilson posted two tackles and an interception during New York's 27-21 victory over San Diego in Week 7 on Sunday. Wilson picked off Chargers QB Philip Rivers in the fourth quarter for his first career interception. The pick followed a pregame conversation with star DB Darrelle Revis. "I asked him before the game," Revis said, "When are you going to get an interception?' and he said, 'It's coming.'"
Analysis: Wilson, who was the team's first-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft, admitted his first interception was special for him. "I wasn't holding my breath for it," he said. "I knew it would come sooner or later. I can't go outlaw out there." Wilson remains a minor Fantasy contributor and should remain on waivers in IDP formats unless he adds more tackles.
News: After a slow start to his NFL career, Jets rookie CB Kyle Wilson could return into the nickel rotation in the Week 10 game against the Browns. "I've been playing a long time, so it was definitely new to me (to be benched)," Wilson said Friday. "I just had to learn quickly and just had to do my best with it." Playing with confidence again, the talented cornerback is back in the mix and expected to replace -- or at least rotate with -- Drew Coleman in the nickel and dime packages on Sunday. "He's back to being the guy that we drafted," coach Rex Ryan said.
Analysis: Wilson had an excellent career at Boise State, but started slow after being thrown into the starting lineup after All-Pro CB Darrelle Revis hurt his hamstring. Still, Wilson is a nickel defender who also sees extensive special teams action. Ignore him in IDP Fantasy formats.
News: According to Newsday, Jets special teams coach Mike Westhoff said rookie CB Kyle Wilson will return punts this season. He was selected out of Boise State with the 29th pick in the first round.
Analysis: Returning punts would only increase Wilson's Fantasy value this season, as he was projected to be the team's nickel corner. However, he should only be drafted in deep IDP leagues that reward special-teams yardage. In those formats, he's a late-round pick, as he is in rookie-only drafts.
News: The Jets signed CB Kyle Wilson, the team's first-round draft pick, to a five-year, $13 million contract, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Saturday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the agreement. "I'm a millionaire!!!!!! And headed to camp," Wilson wrote on his Twitter page. He likely will be the Jets' starting nickelback and compete for the job as the primary punt returner.
Analysis: Wilson, considered by many to be the top cornerback in the draft because of his solid man-to-man skills, slipped to the Jets at 29th overall. Coach Rex Ryan immediately said he would have a key role in a defense that ranked No. 1 overall and tops in pass defense last season. However, it's unlikely he'll beat out Antonio Cromartie for a starting spot, so Wilson will likely be limited to obvious passing downs. He should only be drafted in deep IDP leagues that reward special-teams yardage. In those formats, he's a late-round pick, as he is in rookie-only drafts.
News: The Jets drafted CB Kyle Wilson with the hope he would be part of something big on the field for a defense that already ranked No. 1 against the pass last season. It looks like he will be -- head coach Rex Ryan has said the plan is to have Wilson start out as the team's nickelback, and he'll likely mix in with Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Dwight Lowery in the secondary at cornerback. Revis, an All-Pro, has noticed a difference with Cromartie and with Wilson. "Kyle's a little bit quiet, but we understand he's starting something new and he's trying to get adjusted," said Revis. "Cro jumped in as soon as he got here and just got adjusted really fast. Kyle, coming from college, is something totally different. I was the same way as a rookie, too. I just tried to be quiet and learn as much as I could from the older guys."
Analysis: Wilson will be tested this season for sure (who would you rather throw at if you played against the Jets?), but that could lead to some quality plays. But the only way he should be drafted this season is in deep IDP leagues that reward special-teams yardage. In those formats he's a late-round pick, as he is in rookie-only drafts. He's not worth drafting otherwise since he's not expected to be a mega-tackler.
News: The Jets ranked No. 1 in overall defense and pass defense last season, and they added another player in Boise State CB Kyle Wilson, who was considered one of the top cornerbacks available in the draft. They took Wilson despite already having All-Pro Darrelle Revis, newly acquired Antonio Cromartie and Dwight Lowery at cornerback. Wilson was the leader of a 2009 Broncos secondary that ranked 21st nationally, allowing just 179.86 passing yards per game, and he finished with a career-high 43 tackles (31 solo) and ranked third on the team with three interceptions. He also returned two punts for touchdowns, proving he can also work on special teams. "We feel like with that set of four corners, that gives us a better chance to compete against the passing attacks that we have to face each year in the AFC," GM Mike Tannenbaum said. "We're excited about Kyle."
Analysis: Wilson might play at nickelback this season but should ultimately form a powerful tandem with CB Darrelle Revis. He'll be tested this season for sure, but that could lead to some quality plays. But the only way he should be drafted this season is in deep IDP leagues that reward special-teams yardage. In those formats he's a late-round pick, as he is in rookie-only drafts. He's not worth drafting otherwise since he's not expected to be a mega-tackler.
