WIDE RECEIVER INDEX 3.0

 

NFL Fantasy Football Expert Analyst Lance Goodman breaks down his next crop of Fantasy Wide Receivers and gives Fantasy owners the inside scoop on each players value and advice on where owners should look to land these players during their live drafts.

Preseason Fantasy Wide Receiver Index

Certainly not a player that you depend on weekly but considering the lack of weapons in the 49ers passing game, he will certainly be in the mix.

 

Jeremy Kerley, SF

Has had over 60 catches and 800 receiving yards in each of his first 3 seasons but has struggled with drops and consistency. His new home is now Buffalo.

Jordan Matthews, BUF

Another intricate part of the Falcons high flying offense who racked up 653 receiving yards and 4 TD catches last season.

Mohammed Sanu, ATL

Relatively unknown coming into last season but caught 69 balls for close to 1,000 yards with 5 TDs, so he's definitely worth discussing coming into this year.

 

Adam Thielen, MIN

Had a strong rookie year in 2016 with 683 yards but most importantly 8 TD receptions. I think those numbers are very attainable again this season.

 

Sterling Shepard, NYG

He dazzled at this year's scouting combine running a record setting 40 yard dash time and has a chance to earn major playing time and make an immediate impact.

 

John Ross, CIN

Young player who only has 45 catches in his first 2 seasons but averages 19.3 ypc and should see a more expanded role this season.

J.J. Nelson, ARI

Got off to a slow start last season but was one of the better fantasy Wide Receivers during the second half and finished strong with 945 yards and 8 TD grabs.

 

Rishard Matthews, TEN

Unproven commidity for fantasy football who has never caught more than 60 passes, gained more than 520 yards or caught more than 5 TD passes in a season. But somebody has to catch passes for the Rams.
