New York Jets Wide Receiver Quincy Enunwa, who has been a major factor in the offense, can break further break out this week.

Through the first two games of the season, Quincy Enunwa has had a big impact on this New York Jets offense. With the lack of a TE, he has developed into a TE/WR hybrid that Chan Gailey utilizes so well.

He’s already more than halfway to his reception total from last year. Even with such an increased role, you can expect him to have a larger role this week.

It just so happens that Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker are both banged up with injuries. They should be able to play on Sunday, but could be limited in action.

Teams seem to be too concerned with the big names on the outside that they forget about Enunwa in the slot. With Marshall and Decker not 100% Enunwa should be targeted even more so.

Like Marshall and Decker, Enunwa has good size which makes him a nice target for Ryan Fitzpatrick. Enunwa has also developed pretty good hands this season.

Already after two weeks, there have been multiple occasions in which Enunwa has been asked to go up and get a ball. Sometimes even taking a big hit at the end of it.

The Kansas City Chiefs have a strong defense with a lot of playmakers. It should be tough to get the running game going so the Jets will have to rely on the pass as a result.

The Chiefs are also good at creating turnovers. That was one of the strengths of their defense last year. As a result, Fitz can’t force the ball to Decker and Marshall.

Enunwa and Fitz have shown chemistry early on in the season. In tough spots, he isn’t hesitant to go to Enunwa even though he isn’t the most experienced receiver on the field.

With the two big guns limited in practice all week, it should be expected that they may have to limit their snaps during the game. Enunwa can step up and carry the workload in the passing game. Expect Enunwa to have an even bigger game than he did in Buffalo.
