WR Denzel Mims Escapes New York via Trade, Looks for Fresh Start in Detroit

With the Jets receiving little compensation from the Lions in exchange for the former 2nd-round pick, there’s no reason to believe that Mims will see any significant playing time in 2023, especially later in the season.

We can speculate that the Lions might view Mims as a high-upside flier that can add depth to the Detroit receiving corps while WR Jameson Williams serves his six-game suspension, but given Mims’ track record so far in the league and the state of the Lions offensive arsenal being crowded as is, it’s difficult to project realistic fantasy relevance from the move. Mims played three seasons in New York without scoring a touchdown, and his exit was, like fellow Jets draft pick and WR Elijah Moore, rather unceremonious.

Mims can be left on waivers and likely won’t come off the board in drafts as we draw nearer to the start of the regular season.
