Heading into Week 3 Fantasy Football, wide receiver Quincy Enunwa is an easy start as he faces the Kansas City Chiefs.
When it comes to his fantasy football value heading into Week 3 action, wide receiver Quincy Enunwa is entering a favorable matchup. As his New York Jets hit the road to face a Kansas City Chiefs team looking for a big win in front of the home crowd, Enunwa could easily be the MVP of this game.
Enunwa’s fellow wide receivers are both nursing some nagging injuries. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall is dealing with a knee/ankle injury and Eric Decker has a shoulder injury. Marshall is a game-time decision while Decker will more than likely play but have a limited role.

Enunwa has been rising to the occasion for the Jets so far this season. Last week against the Buffalo Bills, Enunwa totaled 92 receiving yards, six receptions, and a touchdown. He came through in key third down conversions which kept those chains moving.
Against the upcoming Chiefs’ defense, since all eyes will be on either Marshall and/or Decker if they play, Enunwa could easily be an x-factor in this matchup. The Jets’ triplets at wide receiver are a “pick your poison” for opposing defenses since they all are legitimate threats.
Enunwa is well on his way to a breakout season provided he stays healthy.
It’s no secret that both Marshall/Decker, despite amazing seasons last year, both dealt with nagging injuries throughout 2015.
The Jets’ offense must go on and well, Enunwa and the rest of the young receiving corps of the Jets will need to step up and deliver.
Since the Jets have players like Enunwa, Jalin Marshall, and even Robbie Anderson in their arsenal, the youth movement could be exactly what this team needs to leave Kansas City victorious.
Enunwa has the unique skill-set, speed, and clutch abilities to have a huge game against the Chiefs. Fantasy owners should consider putting Enunwa in either as their WR2 or FLEX option since he will easily have a touchdown or two in Week 3.
Overall, fantasy owners would be wise to start Enunwa this week. For those that own him, 2016 will be his best season yet as his continued consistency will be key for his own personal progression and making the Jets’ offense one to watch daily.
