The New York Jets' offense continues to struggle with an absurd number of injures, especially at the WR position.

Jamison Crowder is doubtful to suit up for a Week 3 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, and that means Chris Hogan becomes an interesting fantasy football sleeper.

Breshad Perriman also hasn't practiced yet this week, so we can expect the Jets' WR corps to look a lot like it did in Week 2, when Perriman left after playing 20 snaps.

Sam Darnold threw the ball 32 times in that loss to the San Francisco 49ers, and 8 of those targets (25 percent) went to Chris Hogan. Considering Perriman played some of that game and Hogan made a brief injury exit himself, it seems like he's a relatively safe bet to see around 8 targets again if he's healthy in Week 3.

We've seen that Darnold isn't shy about feeding his top WR either, as Crowder racked up 13 targets on just 48 snaps in Week 1.

Braxton Berrios Fantasy Outlook

If Hogan can't go because of his rib injury, even Braxton Berrios could climb the ranks as a sleeper WR1 for the Jets. Berrios played 71 percent of the team's snaps in Week 2, also notching 8 targets (which he converted to 6 receptions, 59 yards and 1 TD).
