Fantasy football analysis continues to develop and evolve as we become more and more advanced. No longer is it limited to a simple look at the rank of defenses against the pass and the run to determine starts or sits, as it was back in the late 1990s. (Wow, that seems like so long ago!) Now in the Information Age, the level of statistical projections, algorithms, metrics and research used to project a player’s points and fantasy value are almost on the level of an NFL scout. While some information can be paralysis by analysis, a lot of it is useful in our quest to become champions.

In an effort to be a one-stop shop for the most important information as it pertains to your fantasy draft preparation, here’s a look at my wide receiver projections for the 2017 season. I’ve also included a few of the more vital team stats from last season, including each team’s wide receiver target and reception totals, the percentage of overall team targets and receptions that went to wideouts, and the percentage of overall team red-zone targets that went to the position. And of course, fantasy points against (strength of schedule) information is also included at the end.

Also included are a few nuggets, tidbits and analysis (for those who might be sick of all the numbers) on the most important fantasy players, in addition to the tendencies and trends of their coaches and coordinators. In some cases, you’ll even see a quick historical breakdown of how well players have done (based on points) under the coaches and coordinators who’ll be calling their plays in 2017.
football pro bowl payments2northland Projections Larry Fitzgerald Jerseys Jerseys: 90 rec, 1,009 yards, 6 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 134.9 fantasy points John Brown Jerseys Jerseys: 58 rec, 890 yards, 5 TDs, 17 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 119.2 fantasy points J.J. Nelson Jerseys Jerseys: 42 rec, 610 yards, 4 TDs, 57 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 88.7 fantasy points
The Cardinals ranked second in wide receiver targets and tied for fifth in red-zone targets last season. … Larry Fitzgerald Jerseys Jerseys was the team’s most targeted wide receiver (151). He’s the lone wideout to score more than seven touchdowns in a single season under coach Bruce Arians in Arizona. … J.J. Nelson Jerseys Jerseys was second in targets with 74. … John Brown Jerseys Jerseys averaged 4.8 targets a game, but that total should rise as he returns from sickle cell trait. He’s a potential middle- to late-round value. … Arians was either a head coach or offensive coordinator in six consecutive seasons before taking over in Arizona. During that time, his system produced at least one top-20 fantasy wide receiver per season. However, Mike Wallace Jerseys Jerseys (2010-2011) was the lone wideout to finish better than 15th. … In the last four years with the Cardinals, Arians’ offense has produced just one top-10 wideout (Fitzgerald, 2015).
Projections Julio Jones Jerseys Jerseys: 101 rec, 1,498 yards, 8 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 195.8 fantasy points Taylor Gabriel Jerseys Jerseys: 53 rec, 622 yards, 5 TDs, 43 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 96.5 fantasy points Mohamed Sanu: 55 rec, 626 yards, 5 TDs, 38 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 96.4 fantasy points
The Falcons finished 18th in wide receiver targets overall and 12th in red-zone targets. Surprisingly, superstar receiver Julio Jones Jerseys Jerseys finished 53rd at the position in red-zone chances. Veteran Mohamed Sanu led the Falcons wideouts with a mere 13 red-zone targets. That ranked 39th among wideouts around the league. Sanu would finish with just four touchdown catches, two behind Jones for the team lead among wide receivers. … The Falcons ranked third in total red-zone targets (93), but almost a third of them went to running backs. … Jones’ 9.2 overall targets per game were down from the 12.7 he saw the previous season. However, those totals seem destined to rise under new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. … Taylor Gabriel Jerseys Jerseys averaged five targets a game in his last seven games, but he averaged a touchdown per contest. He scored a sixth touchdown on his four rushing attempts.
Projections Jeremy Maclin Jerseys Jerseys: 69 rec, 863 yards, 6 TDs, 6 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 120.9 fantasy points Mike Wallace Jerseys Jerseys: 63 rec, 806 yards, 5 TDs, 21 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 112.7 fantasy points Breshad Perriman Jerseys Jerseys: 50 rec, 639 yards, 4 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 87.9 fantasy points
The Ravens threw the ball more than any other team in the league last season, but their wideouts were targeted just 52.6 percent of the time. That ranked 31st in the league. Baltimore also finished 28th in terms of wideout red-zone targets. On the flip side, Ravens running backs were 13th in total target percentage and seventh in red-zone target percentage. … In Marty Mornhinweg’s last 10 seasons as a coach or offensive coordinator, his wide receivers have ranked in the top 20 in fantasy points just four times. Wallace was 24th under his watch one season ago. … Jeremy Maclin Jerseys Jerseys ranked 38th, 12th, 32nd and 27th in his four seasons with Mornhinweg during their time together in Philadelphia. He averaged 64 catches for 863 yards and six touchdowns in those campaigns. … The Ravens lost 102 targets from their pass attack from last year when Steve Smith Jerseys Sr Jerseys. decided to retire.
Projections Jordan Matthews Jerseys: 64 rec, 809 yards, 5 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 110.9 fantasy points Zay Jones Jerseys: 54 rec, 636 yards, 4 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 87.6 fantasy points Anquan Boldin Jerseys Jerseys: 55 rec, 528 yards, 5 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 80.8 fantasy points
The Bills finished 32nd in wideout targets and tied for 31st in red-zone chances last season. … The team’s three most-targeted wideouts, Robert Woods Jerseys Jerseys Jerseys (76), Marquise Goodwin Jerseys Jerseys (68) and Sammy Watkins Jerseys Jerseys (52) are no longer on the roster. Watkins was dealt to the Rams during training camp, which means more targets for new additions Jordan Matthews Jerseys, Zay Jones Jerseys and Anquan Boldin Jerseys Jerseys. … New offensive coordinator Rick Dennison has had a combined six top-20 fantasy wideout performances in his last six seasons in that role between Houston and Denver. That includes Andre Johnson Jerseys Jerseys Jerseys, who ranked in the top 12 three times during their time together with the Texans. … Matthews and Jones are worth late-round choices in most re-drafts, but neither should be selected as more than a fourth fantasy wideout in an offense will continue to lean on LeSean McCoy Jerseys Jerseys and the ground attack. … Boldin could be worth a flier in deeper fantasy drafts due to his red-zone prowess.
Projections Kelvin Benjamin Jerseys Jerseys: 65 rec, 902 yards, 6 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 126.2 fantasy points Devin Funchess Jerseys Jerseys: 50 rec, 704 yards, 5 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 98.4 fantasy points Curtis Samuel Jerseys: 38 rec, 427 yards, 3 TDs, 144 rush yards, 1 rush TDs, 79.1 fantasy points
Carolina ranked tied for 17th in wide receiver targets and tied for 19th in red-zone targets a season ago. … Kelvin Benjamin Jerseys Jerseys led the team in targets (118) and finished 20th in fantasy points among wideouts, but he put up double-digit fantasy points just five times. … Mike Shula has been an offensive coordinator for nine seasons at the NFL level. During that time, Benjamin is the lone wideout to post 1,000 or more yards in his system. Over the last five seasons, just two Panthers wideouts (Benjamin – 2014-2016, Steve Smith Jerseys – 2013) have seen 100-plus targets. What’s more, tight end Greg Olsen Jerseys Jerseys has seen more targets than any wideout on the team since 2013. … Ted Ginn Jerseys, who ranked second in wideout targets, is no longer on the roster. That should mean more opportunities for Devin Funchess Jerseys Jerseys and Curtis Samuel Jerseys, but neither is worth more than a late-rounder in drafts.
Projections Cameron Meredith Jerseys Jerseys: 65 rec, 823 yards, 5 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 112.3 fantasy points Kevin White Jerseys Jerseys: 66 rec, 698 yards, 5 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 97.8 fantasy points
The Bears finished 11th in wide receiver targets and eighth in red-zone targets in their first season under offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains. That had much to due with injuries to tight end Zach Miller Jerseys and the lack of a pass catcher in the backfield. … In addition to the two seasons he filled that role in Tennessee, Loggains’ top wide receiver has averaged 111 targets. … Cameron Meredith Jerseys Jerseys led the Bears in total targets a season ago, but Alshon Jeffery Jerseys Jerseys Jerseys was first in targets-per-game average (7.8). With Jeffery now no longer on the roster, Meredith figures to reach the 100-target mark in 2017. He’s a legitimate sleeper choice. … Kevin White Jerseys Jerseys, a former first-round pick, has missed all but four games in his first two years due to injuries. While he’s now back at full speed, White is still worth no more than a late-rounder based on his noted proneness to injuries at the NFL level.
Projections A.J. Green Jerseys Jerseys: 91 rec, 1,332 yards, 8 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 181.2 fantasy points John Ross Jerseys: 40 rec, 523 yards, 4 TDs, 79 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 82.2 fantasy points Brandon LaFell Jerseys: 38 rec, 410 yards, 2 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 53 fantasy points Tyler Boyd Jerseys: 45 rec, 427 yards, 2 TDs, 11 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 53.8 fantasy points
Cincinnati ranked 14th in wideout targets and 19th in red-zone chances in their first season under offensive coordinator Ken Zampese. … A.J. Green Jerseys Jerseys was on pace to finish with 160 targets before he went down with an injured hamstring. That would have been his highest total since 2013. Green was also on pace for 105 catches and 1,542 yards, which would have both been career highs. His projected 16 red-zone targets would have ranked tied for 18th among wideouts. … Brandon LaFell Jerseys led the Bengals with 107 targets, but 61 (or 57 percent) of them came over the final seven games of the season during which time Green was injured. … The addition of rookie John Ross Jerseys will mean fewer targets for both LaFell and Tyler Boyd Jerseys, neither of whom is worth more than a late-round flier in deeper leagues. As for Ross, he’s worth a late look in drafts but has to be monitored after shoulder surgery.
Projections Kenny Britt Jerseys Jerseys Jerseys: 65 rec, 931 yards, 5 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 121.1 fantasy points Corey Coleman Jerseys: 61 rec, 742 yards, 5 TDs, 23 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 106.5 fantasy points
The Browns finished 21st in wide receiver targets and 24th in red-zone target totals under the watch of head coach Hue Jackson. …. In six full seasons as either a coach or offensive coordinator at the NFL level, Hue Jackson has produced just one top-10 fantasy wideout (A.J. Green Jerseys Jerseys, 2015). The next best fantasy players at the position were Laveranues Coles (13th, 2003) and Roddy White (14th, 2007). … From 2005-2016, the Browns have had just three wideouts (Josh Gordon Jerseys Jerseys – 2013, Braylon Edwards – 2007, Terrelle Pryor Jerseys Jerseys – 2016) finish in the top 25 in fantasy points. … Pryor led the team in targets (144) a season ago, but he’s no longer on the roster. Those opportunities figure to go to Kenny Britt Jerseys Jerseys Jerseys, who finished 26th in fantasy points among wideouts with the Rams last season. … Corey Coleman Jerseys averaged 7.3 targets a game as a rookie and will push Britt for the team lead.
Projections Dez Bryant Jerseys Jerseys: 78 rec, 1,157 yards, 8 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 163.7 fantasy points Cole Beasley Jerseys Jerseys: 63 rec, 737 yards, 4 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 97.7 fantasy points Terrance Williams Jerseys Jerseys: 47 rec, 621 yards, 4 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 84.1 fantasy points
The Cowboys ranked 29th in wide receiver targets and 26th in red-zone target chances last season. … Scott Linehan has produced nine top-10 fantasy wideouts in 15 seasons as either a head coach or offensive coordinator. Of course, he’s coached elite receivers like Randy Moss, Torry Holt Jerseys, Calvin Johnson Jerseys Jerseys and Dez Bryant Jerseys Jerseys in that time. The lone "non-elite" wide receiver who’s finished in the top 10 under Linehan was Chris Chambers (ninth, 2005). … Bryant has missed 10 games over the last two seasons due to injuries. Projecting his average numbers during that time over 16 games, he would finish with 122 targets, 59 receptions, 871 yards and eight touchdowns. He had averaged 144 targets, 91 receptions, 1,312 yards and 14 touchdowns in his previous three seasons, so his numbers have declined. … Cole Beasley Jerseys Jerseys led the team with 98 targets a year ago, which was 23 more than his previous career best (2015). He’s worth a late rounder, especially in PPR formats.
Projections Demaryius Thomas Jerseys Jerseys: 88 rec, 1,108 yards, 6 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 144.8 fantasy points Emmanuel Sanders Jerseys Jerseys: 80 rec, 1,054 yards, 6 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 139.4 fantasy points
The Broncos were tied for sixth in wideout targets and seventh in red-zone targets last season, which should be a surprise to no one when you consider the team’s lack of an effective pass catcher at running back and tight end. Despite those high totals, Demaryius Thomas Jerseys Jerseys and Emmanuel Sanders Jerseys Jerseys still combined to post just 10 touchdown catches and neither finished in the top 15 in fantasy points among wideouts. … In eight seasons as either an offensive coordinator or head coach, Mike McCoy has produced five top-20 fantasy wideout performances. That includes three top-seven finishes and one season (2012) with a pair of top-seven wideouts (Thomas – fifth, Eric Decker Jerseys – seventh). … Thomas averaged a solid 12.6 fantasy points per game with Peyton Manning Jerseys Jerseys. Without him, he has averaged 7.6 points. … Thomas’ target totals have now declined in each of the last three campaigns.
Projections Golden Tate Jerseys: 95 rec, 1,072 yards, 5 TDs, 33 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 138.5 fantasy points Marvin Jones Jerseys: 56 rec, 895 yards, 5 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 119.5 fantasy points Kenny Golladay Jerseys: 41 rec, 506 yards, 4 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 75.6 fantasy points
The Lions offense was tied for eighth in wide receiver targets and third in red-zone targets last season. … Anquan Boldin Jerseys Jerseys, who is no longer on the roster, finished third in total targets and led the team with 23 red-zone targets. Those important opportunities should now be spread out to Golden Tate Jerseys, Marvin Jones Jerseys and tight end Eric Ebron Jerseys Jerseys. … In Detroit’s first season since the retirement of Calvin Johnson Jerseys Jerseys, Tate led the Lions with 135 targets and was second behind Boldin in red-zone chances (18). He could push up the No. 2 fantasy wideout ranks this season. … Marvin Jones Jerseys scored a combined 44.3 fantasy points in Weeks 2-3, but put up a total of 64.5 fantasy points (two touchdowns) in his final 13 games. … Rookie Kenny Golladay Jerseys is projected to open as the third wideout on the roster, but he’s worth little more than a late-round flier as the Lions are likely to use more two tight-end sets.
Projections Jordy Nelson Jerseys Jerseys: 90 rec, 1,211 yards, 10 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 181.3 fantasy points Davante Adams Jerseys Jerseys: 68 rec, 872 yards, 8 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 133.2 fantasy points Randall Cobb Jerseys Jerseys: 58 rec, 687 yards, 6 TDs, 37 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 108.4 fantasy points
To the surprise of no one, the Packers ranked first in wideout targets and red-zone opportunities at the position a season ago. … Jordy Nelson Jerseys Jerseys led the offense with 152 targets (9.5 TPG), while Davante Adams Jerseys Jerseys finished second with 121. The duo combined to post 26 touchdown catches, ranked second and seventh, respectively, at the position and were the highest-scoring wideout teammates (based on fantasy points) in the league. Touchdown regression is a concern for each of them, however. … Coordinator Edgar Bennett’s offense did spread the ball around, as four different players (Nelson, Adams, Randall Cobb Jerseys Jerseys, Ty Montgomery Jerseys Jerseys) finished with 40-plus catches. … Aaron Rodgers Jerseys Jerseys has now had at least one top-20 fantasy wideout in all but one of his seasons as the Packers starter. … Cobb has seen his reception, yardage and touchdown totals decline in each of the last three seasons.
Projections DeAndre Hopkins Jerseys Jerseys: 77 rec, 1,089 yards, 6 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 144.9 fantasy points Will Fuller: 58 rec, 772 yards, 5 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 107.2 fantasy points
Houston finished 23rd in wideout targets and 25th in red-zone targets in 2016, as the passing offense finished as one of the worst in the NFL. … Head coach Bill O’Brien will now serve as the team’s player caller, and the trade of Brock Osweiler Jerseys should improve the prospects of DeAndre Hopkins Jerseys Jerseys. He experienced declines in targets (minus-41), receptions (minus-33), yards (minus-567) and touchdowns (minus-8) compared to his 2015 totals, while also falling from sixth to 36th in fantasy points. Hopkins’ 3.2 yards after the catch was also in the bottom half of the league. … In three games where Tom cheap jersey Savage Jerseys Jerseys led the Texans in pass attempts, Hopkins averaged 11 targets, six receptions and 84 yards. He averaged nine targets, 4.6 receptions and 54 yards in the other 13 games where Osweiler started. …. Will Fuller is out two to three months due to a broken collarbone.
Projections T.Y. Hilton Jerseys Jerseys: 81 rec, 1,233 yards, 7 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 163.3 fantasy points Donte Moncrief Jerseys Jerseys: 57 rec, 773 yards, 8 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 123.3 fantasy points
The Colts ranked 22nd in both targets and in red-zone targets among wide receivers last season. … T.Y. Hilton Jerseys Jerseys led the team with 155 targets, which was 96 more than the next best wideout (Phillip Dorsett Jerseys Jerseys, 59), but that total could decline at least somewhat with Donte Moncrief Jerseys Jerseys back in the mix. He missed a total of seven games due to injuries. A touchdown machine at the pro level, Moncrief visited the end zone seven times despite catching just 30 passes. What’s more, 70 percent of his red-zone targets resulted in touchdowns. … In his last six seasons as either a head coach or offensive coordinator, Rob Chudzinski had produced four top-six fantasy wide receivers. That includes Braylon Edwards (third, 2007), Steve Smith Jerseys Sr Jerseys. (sixth, 2011), Josh Gordon Jerseys Jerseys (first, 2013) and Hilton (fifth, 2016). What’s more, Chudzinski has produced at least one top-20 fantasy wideout in all but one season.
Projections Allen Robinson Jerseys Jerseys: 77 rec, 996 yards, 7 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 141.6 fantasy points Marqise Lee Jerseys Jerseys: 57 rec, 678 yards, 4 TDs, 45 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 96.3 fantasy points Allen Hurns Jerseys Jerseys: 46 rec, 630 yards, 4 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 85 fantasy points
The Jaguars finished fifth in wideout targets and 11th in red-zone targets a season ago, but that didn’t keep Allen Robinson Jerseys Jerseys from putting up a disappointing campaign. While his targets remained high (151), his yardage (minus-517) and touchdowns (minus-eight) experienced a major decline. That can be blamed in part to a decrease in the number of targets he saw that were 20 or more yards (compared to 2015). Robinson also averaged 5.4 fewer yards per catch. … Allen Hurns Jerseys Jerseys also saw declines across the board compared to his previous season, and his 6.9 targets-per-game average was just 0.3 more than Marqise Lee Jerseys Jerseys. New offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett failed to produce a top-20 fantasy wideout in two seasons in that role with the Bills. … With rookie running back Leonard Fournette Jerseys now in the mix, the Jaguars and Bortles figure to throw a whole lot less in 2017.
Projections Tyreek Hill Jerseys: 71 rec, 765 yards, 5 TDs, 210 rush yards, 2 rush TDs, 135.5 fantasy points Chris Conley Jerseys Jerseys: 48 rec, 461 yards, 3 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 62.1 fantasy points
The Chiefs finished 30th in wide receiver targets and tied for 15th in red-zone targets a season ago, which isn’t a surprise on a team whose top-targeted player was a tight end (Travis Kelce Jerseys Jerseys). … Jeremy Maclin Jerseys Jerseys, who averaged a team-high 6.3 targets per game among wideouts, is no longer on the roster. … In three seasons in Kansas City, head coach Andy Reid has produced two top-20 fantasy wideouts but none in the top 10. He has also had just one 1,000-yard wideout (Maclin, 2015), and his leading player at the position has averaged just 101 targets, 66 receptions and 777 receiving yards in that time. … Tyreek Hill Jerseys figures to take over the role of Kansas City’s No. 1 wide receiver. Over his final eight games of last season, he averaged 6.6 targets and another 1.6 rush attempts. Overall, Hill averaged 9.7 yards per catch and 11.1 yards per rush attempt. He’ll be a breakout candidate.
Projections Keenan Allen Jerseys: 72 rec, 966 yards, 6 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 130.6 fantasy points Tyrell Williams Jerseys: 61 rec, 862 yards, 5 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 116.2 fantasy points Mike Williams Jerseys: 38 rec, 452 yards, 4 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 69.2 fantasy points
The Chargers ranked 24th in targets and 23rd in red-zone targets among wideouts last season. Those stats reflect a team that saw two tight ends (Hunter Henry Jerseys, Antonio Gates Jerseys) record 30 red-zone targets and 16 touchdowns. … Ken Whisenhunt has been a head coach or offensive coordinator for 13 seasons at the NFL level. In that time, he’s coached six top-10 fantasy wideouts and 10 top-20 receivers. However, he’s had just two (Keenan Allen Jerseys – 2013, Tyrell Williams Jerseys – 2016) finish higher than 18th in points in his last five seasons. … Allen has missed 23 contests over the last two years due to injuries. In his nine active games, however, Allen recorded 96 targets, 73 receptions and 788 yards. … Tyrell Williams Jerseys is coming off a career season, but the Chargers also have Mike Williams Jerseys, Dontrelle Inman Jerseys and Travis Benjamin Jerseys. The rookie could miss extended time due to a bad back, however.
Projections Sammy Watkins Jerseys Jerseys: 70 rec, 1,056 yards, 5 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 135.6 fantasy points Robert Woods Jerseys Jerseys Jerseys: 51 rec, 649 yards, 3 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 82.9 fantasy points Tavon Austin Jerseys Jerseys: 43 rec, 448 yards, 3 TDs, 127 rush yards, 1 rush TDs, 79.5 fantasy points
The Rams finished last season tied for 18th in wideout targets and 27th in red-zone targets, and their highest-scoring player at the position (Britt) ranked just 26th in fantasy points. … Britt, who is no longer on the roster, left 111 targets behind. … New head coach Sean McVay served as the offensive coordinator in Washington for three seasons. During that time, just one wideout (DeSean Jackson Jerseys – 2014) finished in the top 20 in points at the position. Furthermore, their best receiver finished 36th (Pierre Garcon Jerseys) and 30th (Jamison Crowder Jerseys) in 2015 and 2016, respectively. … Watkins figures to lead the team in targets, catches and receiving yards if he can avoid injuries, but his statistical ceiling is limited with quarterback Jared Goff Jerseys under center. Target him as a borderline No. 2 or 3 wideout in your fantasy drafts. … Woods and Tavon Austin Jerseys Jerseys are worth late-round draft fliers at best.
Projections Jarvis Landry Jerseys Jerseys: 85 rec, 980 yards, 5 TDs, 23 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 130.3 fantasy points DeVante Parker Jerseys Jerseys: 67 rec, 856 yards, 6 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 121.6 fantasy points Kenny Stills Jerseys Jerseys: 45 rec, 704 yards, 5 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 100.4 fantasy points
The Dolphins ranked 25th in wide receiver targets and 30th in red-zone targets, so the team didn’t use their wideouts nearly as much inside the opponent’s 20-yard line. That’s evident in the red-zone stats of Jarvis Landry Jerseys Jerseys and DeVante Parker Jerseys Jerseys, who combined for 18 targets and eight touchdowns. Landry ranks ninth in targets among wideouts over the last two years, but his eight combined scores are tied for just 44th. … In his four seasons as either a head coach or offensive coordinator, Adam Gase has produced four top-eight and six top-25 fantasy wideouts. The lone season that Gase failed to produce a top-25 wideout was in 2015, when his top option at the position (Jeffery) missed seven games. If you project Jeffery’s totals over a full season, however, he would have finished with 96 catches, 1,434 yards and seven touchdowns. Those totals would have put him ninth at wideout.
Projections Stefon Diggs Jerseys Jerseys: 83 rec, 1,012 yards, 5 TDs, 9 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 130.1 fantasy points Adam Thielen Jerseys Jerseys: 70 rec, 897 yards, 4 TDs, 38 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 116.2 fantasy points Laquon Treadwell Jerseys: 36 rec, 414 yards, 2 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 51.2 fantasy points
The Vikings finished 19th in wideout targets and 21st in red-zone targets a season ago. … Despite missing three games, Stefon Diggs Jerseys Jerseys still led the offense in targets (8.6 TPG) and averaged almost 70 yards a contest. Now entering his third NFL campaign, Diggs is a viable draft bargain if he can avoid injuries. A season with 90 catches, 1,000-plus yards and five touchdowns is not out of the question. … Adam Thielen Jerseys Jerseys posted career highs across the board, but 45 percent of his receiving yards came in just three games. … Pat Shurmur has been a head coach or offensive coordinator in each of the last eight seasons. During that time, he’s had just two top-10 fantasy wideouts (DeSean Jackson Jerseys – 2009, Maclin – 2010) and three other top-25 performances at the position. Thielen ranked 29th in 2016. Furthermore, his leading fantasy wideout ranked 20th or worse in all but one of those eight seasons.
Projections Brandin Cooks Jerseys Jerseys: 71 rec, 1,002 yards, 7 TDs, 48 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 145.0 fantasy points Julian Edelman Jerseys Jerseys: 74 rec, 910 yards, 6 TDs, 23 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 129.3 fantasy points Chris Hogan Jerseys: 31 rec, 412 yards, 2 TDs, 0 rush yards, 0 rush TDs, 63.2 fantasy points
The Patriots ranked 27th in targeted wide receivers and 10th in red-zone chances in 2016, as the team had four players at the position with at least 10 red-zone targets. Julian Edelman Jerseys Jerseys led New England in both targets (160) and red-zone targets (15), but both of those totals seem destined to decline with the addition of Brandin Cooks Jerseys Jerseys and the return of tight end Rob Gronkowski Jerseys Jerseys from an injured back. Cooks averaged 123 targets in his last two seasons in New Orleans, that’s 65 more than Chris Hogan Jerseys had last season. Hogan was the Patriots’ second-most targeted wideout. … Josh McDaniels has produced four top-20 fantasy wideouts in his last seven seasons as an offensive coordinator or head coach, including two top-10 finishers in Brandon Marshall Jerseys Jerseys (2009) and Brandon Lloyd (2010).
