WIDE RECEIVER INDEX 1.0

 

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

Explosive play maker who doesn't post huge stats every week but when he does have a big game, it makes a big difference in your weekly scoring output. Has been over 1,000 yards in 3 out of the last 4 seasons, yet only had more than 60 catches once.

 

Desean Jackson, TB

Electrifying vertical speed that allows for him to get behind defenses and strike big in a hurry. He won't be the main option in New England like he was in New Orleans but shoud still be a difference maker.

Brandin Cooks, NE

Very skilled and athletic player who has had atleast 75 catches and been over 1,000 yards in each of his last 3 seasons but a change in Quarterback and offensive scheme have caused his numbers to slide a bit during that span as well.

Emmanuel Sanders, DEN

His name likely isn't very attractive to fantasy owners but his 75 catches for 833 yards and 5 TD catches last season, make him a viable FLEX asset on your team.

Cole Beasley, DAL

Still a fairly young player enetring his 5th season but plays in a pass happy offense and has room to build on his 55 catches for 930 yards and 4 TD catches from a season ago.

 

Marvin Jones, DET

Caught 16 TD passes in his first 2 years before injuries and poor Quarterback play ruined last season. Definitely in the mold of a high risk, high reward type player.

 

Allen Hurns, JAC

After a career year in 2014, his numbers have steadily declined over the last 2 seasons. He has the talent and is in the right system but production may be an issue as the 3rd wheel in a high powered passing attack.

 

Randall Cobb, GB

As the primary option on a team that isn't too good, he should be able to see a significant amount of targets but the quality of those targets combined with his inexperience leaves question marks.

Corey Coleman, CLE

After an outstanding rookie season in 2015, he got off to a very slow start in 2016 before finally finding his groove. Unfortunately a late season injury stopped his momentum.
