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

Talented player who has struggled with injuries in Buffalo. Has elite vertical speed to get behind defenses but is now playing with a young Quarterback and new team, so we'll need to further evaluate his new fantasy value.

 

Sammy Watkins, LAR

Has been one of the best fantasy Wide Receivers over the last 10 years with 8 seasons of over 1,000 yards and 80 TDs. Still an effective player but his age and role on a new team has his value down a bit.

Brandon Marshall, NYG

Another player whose got alot of upside and his individual talent is obvious to see but the Vikings style of football doesn't maxamize his full potential. 

Stefon Diggs, MIN

The Falcons are loaded with weapons on offense but he should be more involved this year and able to build on his 16.5 ypc average and 6 TDs from a year ago.

Taylor Gabriel, ATL

Caught 69 balls for 1,059 yards and 7 TDs last season in only his second year, so we know he can be productive but he's expected to see less targets which would lower the chance of those numbers again.

 

Tyrell Williams, LAC

Has all of the physical tools to excel in the NFL but he is a rookie, so some type of learning curve is expected. Nonetheless, he should be on the field with an opportunity to make an immediate impact

 

Corey Davis, TEN

Veteran player who had 862 yards and 6 TD catches last season but will could see a reduced role this year.

 

Brandon LaFell, CIN

As the Bears primary option in the passing game, he's in perfect position to surpass the 888 yards and 4 TD catches from a year ago.

Cameron Meredith, CHI

Desean Jackson, TB

 

Brandin Cooks, NE

 

Emmanuel Sanders, DEN

 

Cole Beasley, DAL

 

Marvin Jones, DET

Brandon Marshall, NYG

Cameron Meredith, CHI

 

Mike Wallace, BAL

 

Pierre Garcon, SF

 

 

Had 72 catches for 1,017 yards last season but only scored 4 TDs. With all the changes taking place on Baltimore's offense, his draft stock is yet to be determined.

 

Mike Wallace, BAL

Veteran player who has had some success and will have an opportunity to see alot of targets but has never scored more than 6 TDs in a season.

 

Pierre Garcon, SF
