Wrist and ankle injuries limited Crowder to nine games last year. He had 29 receptions for 388 yards and two scores. He had at least four receptions five of his nine games played. He was a factor in the passing game when on the field. Crowder had two straight seasons with 65-plus receptions before last year. He is a great fit for the slot, a role he is expected to serve again for the Jets. Crowder is a small receiver but has good moves in space and knows how to get open. He gets by with his speed and quickness. Crowder lacks some bulk and height, which limits him some from playing on the outside. Fantasy Outlook: Crowder is a productive receiver in PPR formats, getting plenty of weekly chances. He remains more of a reserve option for fantasy teams, though. He'll get his catches but the rest of his numbers will be pretty mediocre. He can get around 60 receptions for 700 yards and four or five scores. A move to the Jets doesn't make him a much better option than past years.
Crowders 2018 season with the Washington Redskins was terrible whether he was on the field (29-388-2 in nine games) or off it (missed seven games due to injury). Thank goodness he took his talents to the New York Jets or else who knows what he would have done fantasy-wise with Case Keenum or Dwayne Haskins throwing to him in Washington. Crowder signed for $28.5 million to become New Yorks starting slot receiver and make plays down the middle while Robby Anderson hits home runs downfield. The problem is that hard-nosed Quincy Enunwa is a Sam Darnold favorite and might take some targets away from Crowder on third down, plus Crowder might be hard-pressed to reach 95-100 targets when the Jets have to spread the ball around to Anderson, Enunwa, tight end Christopher Herndon and top tailback LeVeon Bell. Crowder does not find the end zone (14 TD in four seasons) so he is more valuable in PPR leagues, but if he has to battle four other pass catchers for targets he might not be very valuable there, either. With a new team, offense, head coach and quarterback, Crowder still should be viewed as a WR3, but the situation he signed into might cause him to slip to be a WR4.

New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder registered four receptions for 40 yards on six targets in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns on Sept. 16.
Fantasy Spin: Crowder fell back to Earth after posting 14 grabs, 99 yards and 17 targets in Week 1. He is expected to be working with his third starting quarterback in as many games in Week 3 heading into New England, so his fantasy value is limited to deeper PPR leagues until we see how he jells with Luke Falk over a full game.
New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder caught four passes for 40 yards on six targets in a 23-3 loss to the Browns Monday night. A week after tying the Jets record for catches in a game Crowder was seldom used tonight with the Jets playing backup quarterbacks and RB Le'Veon Bell getting most of the short targets Crowder thrived on in Week 1. Crowder's fantasy value will depend on who plays QB for the Jets moving forward as he simply didn't have the same connection this week as he did with a healthy Sam Darnold last week. Crowder will be in the WR3/flex mix most weeks but faces a daunting matchup next week against a Patriots Defense that has allowed only three points through two games.
New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder is a solid start in fantasy despite the news that backup quarterbackTrevor Siemian will start in place of Sam Darnold (illness) on Monday night against the Browns.. Crowder tied a Jets franchise record for catches in a game with 14 in Week 1 and saw a whopping 17 targets. Last time Siemian was a starter for Denver in 2017, he ranked 27th in the league in both air yards and pass-attempt distance, so he'll likely be checking down to Crowder often, especially behind a suspect offensive line. Most of the Jets offensive weapons should be downgraded with Siemian at QB, but fantasy owners can still plug in Crowder as a WR4/flex play with higher upside in PPR formats.
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder caught 14 passes for 99 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: Crowder appears to be a favorite target for Sam Darnold but probably will not be posting that many catches each week. He can be a weekly flex option for fantasy players if he continues to receive a significant amount of targets.
New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder made a big statement in his first game with the team, catching 14 passes for 99 yards Sunday against the Bills. The Bills No. 1 ranked pass defense from last year took away the outside options but had no answer for Crowder, who consistently got open out of the slot, especially on third down. With starting tight end Chris Herndon IV suspended, Crowder was expected to see plenty of targets and he made the most of them, consistently being open when quarterbackSam Darnold was under pressure. He won't see 17 targets every week, but Crowder seems to be a favorite target of Darnold already and is worth starting in fantasy as a WR3 or flex option, especially in PPR formats.
Jets' WR Jamison Crowder had 14 receptions for 99 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's loss against the Bills.
New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder is excited to step into the slot role in what should be an improved Jets offense. The slot receiver in coach Adam Gase's offense was good to Jarvis Landry in Miami and while Crowder is no Landry, he will fill a role in the offense that was missing during QB Sam Darnold's rookie season. Darnold had a league-worst completion percentage on throws of 1-10 yards so adding a quick receiver as Crowder should only help the sophomore signal-caller. Crowder should see some extra targets in Week 1 with starting tight end Chris Herndon suspended and number one receiver Robby Anderson being shadowed by Bills top corner Tre'Davious White. Crowder is a solid flex option with higher upside in PPR leagues.
New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder caught his only target for eight yards in the team's third preseason game Saturday vs New Orleans. Crowder finishes the preseason with three catches for 39 yards and a touchdown in his first year working with Sam Darnold. Crowder battled injuries last season but could be a value on draft day if he can stay healthy. The slot receiver role was productive in Adam Gase offenses in Miami and though Crowder is no Jarvis Landry, he could get plenty of targets early in the season with tight end Chris Herndon suspended. Draft Crowder as a WR3/FLEX with higher upside in PPR formats.
New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder had another solid practice as he continues to establish himself as a favorite target of Sam Darnold. Crowder had two catches for 31 yards and a touchdown in the team's first preseason game and has consistently been targeted by Darnold in practice. Crowder is looking to bounce back with his new team after being limited to nine games last season. He's got a great chance to get off to a good start with starting tight end Chris Herndon suspended for the first four games of the season as it sounds like Crowder will get plenty of targets early on.
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder (foot) participated in practice Wednesday, July 31.
Fantasy Spin: Crowder likely will be the team's slot receiver and should have a solid role in the passing game. He has a chance to be a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues this season and could be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder (foot, ankle) is expected to practice Wednesday, July 31, after he was medically cleared Tuesday, July 30.
New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder suffered a left foot injury during the team's fifth day of training camp on Monday. After impressing coaches initially, the veteran receiver is now set to have an MRI, leaving his status for the 2019 season uncertain at the moment. The 26-year-old, who signed a three-year deal this past offseason, is expected to be the team's primary slot receiver this upcoming year. An update on his status is likely over the next few days.
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder (foot) is scheduled to undergo tests on the foot injury he suffered Monday, July 29. Head coach Adam Gase said he does not know the severity of the injury.
Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players need to monitor the situation to see how long Crowder will be sidelined. He is expected to have a solid role in the passing game as the slot receiver in 2019. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder (leg) left practice Monday, July 29, with a left ankle or foot injury. He missed seven games last season with an injury to his right ankle.
Fantasy Spin: This could be an important injury in the fantasy landscape as Crowder is expected to have a big role on offense. Keep an eye on this situation for the potential WR4 sleeper.
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder had an 'impressive spring' and 'looked fully healthy' during the offseason, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.
Fantasy Spin: Crowder will be hard-pressed to be anything more than the Jets' third target behind Robby Anderson and Le'Veon Bell, but he should have some appeal in PPR leagues. Slot receivers have typically done well in Adam Gase's offenses, and Sam Darnold tended to lean on his inside wideouts as a rookie. He's a WR4 with upside.
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder has run more than 75 percent of his routes in his career from the slot, according to Pro Football Focus. Head coach Adam Gase has said they'll lean on receivers inside the numbers in his scheme. 'He has an explosiveness after the catch that you don't see a ton of,' Gase said. 'A lot of the slot receivers, historically have been not guys that are threats down the field. He's a threat down the field, but at the same time he can catch it and create, which is going to be interesting for us because we've never had a guy who can really juice it up.'
Fantasy Spin: Crowder might be worth a late-round flyer if he shows something in camp and the preseason.
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder 'has something unique as far as he has an explosiveness after the catch that you don't see (among slot receivers),' according to head coach Adam Gase. In 56 games over four seasons with the Washington Redskins, Crowder had 34 receptions of at least 20 yards and six of at least 40. 'A lot of slot players, historically, have not been guys that are threats down the field. He's actually a threat down the field, but at the same time, he can catch it and create, which is going to be interesting for us. We've never had a guy that really can juice it up like he can,' Gase said.
Fantasy Spin: It's interesting Gase decided to use the term "juice" (Jarvis Landry's nickname) when talking about slot receivers he has coached. Beyond that, Crowder is very much a player that seems to have flown under the radar during free agency this spring. Wes Welker, Landry and Danny Amendola have all enjoyed varying levels of success in Gase's offense, and it's not a stretch to say Crowder is the most explosive of the bunch. He should be viewed as a WR3 with WR2 upside in 2019.
New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder said he is excited to play in head coach Adam Gase's offense because of how it utilizes slot receivers.
Fantasy Spin: Crowder's 2018 season was marred by an ankle injury, but if he stays healthy, he could become a dependable target for Sam Darnold. Crowder is worth a look as a WR4 in PPR formats.
