Friday update: Head coach Robert Saleh says that Corey Davis will play this week, per Ralph Vacchiano. This is a tough matchup against the Bills secondary, so limit your expectations.

Thursday update: Corey Davis got another limited practice in on Thursday and appears on track to return this week against the Bills.

The New York Jets have struggled for much of this season, dealing with close losses and injuries to key players. New York hopes to turn things around in Week 10 against the Buffalo Bills, and the Jets should have a key player back in the mix. WR Corey Davis missed some time with a hip injury but was able to go “full throttle” in his limited session Wednesday.

Fantasy football implications

Davis returns to a receiver group that has been depleted by injuries, including his own setback. Elijah Moore is breaking out over the last three games, and Jamison Crowder remains an effective slot option. Denzel Mimis hit the reserve/COVID-19 list this week, so it’s possible he’s out for Week 10. Davis would take over as the top receiving option and might not even have an injury designation assuming he continues logging full practices this week. The Jets appear likely to be getting their top receiver back at a key time.
