He has been the best wide receiver in the game over the last two seasons. He finished last year with 1834 yards on 136 receptions to go with 10 TDs. If Big Ben would have stayed healthy, those numbers could have been even higher. Ben Roethlisberger‘s health with be a huge factor in determining exactly how productive Brown will be this season. In the Steelers’ pass happy offence, he will be catching the ball a lot. He is the MVP in fantasy football going into the 2016 season. iphone 8 silicone case
Wide receivers have taken over the game that is fantasy football. That is in part due to the number of elite receivers we now have in our game. Jones lead the league in both receiving yards and targets in 2015. He is Matt Ryan‘s favorite option in the Falcons offence and look for that to stay the same going into this season. He is the most physically imposing receiver in the NFL.
Peterson’s value may have just taken an extreme turn upwards after news Teddy Bridgewater will not be playing this season. Due to the injury, Peterson will likely be seeing more snaps than he usually does this year and to the reward of fantasy owners everywhere. In a year where there is far too many iffy players at running back, Peterson is the clear cut #1.
OBJ made sure people knew his rookie season was not a lucky one with an incredible 2015 season. If not for a one game suspension he may have been able to put up even better numbers. He is dangerous after catches and can make the highlight reel play. Look for him to be a popular pick and a highly targeted man in the Giants offense.
In a run heavy Rams offense, Gurley will likely see a lot of action in early downs and will be a workhorse for a team with a young QB. Look for him to rack up yards on a consistent basis with scores in the mix. His upside is limited due to his limited passing usage but his number of touches should make up for that. He will be among the top 10 running backs each week often.
Elliot will lead the Cowboys backfield no doubt in 2016. He will have a talented offensive line in front of him, which should allow him to succeed in his rookie campaign. With the injury to Romo he may see more usage in the first half of the season than if Tony were in the lineup. He should make the college to pro transition seamlessly.
Hopkins was third in the league for yards, targets and receptions in 2015. With an upgrade at QB in the form of Osweiller, look for Hopkins to covert on more of his targets than in previous years. He does however lack ability to make things happen after he catches the ball. His 1.8 yards after catch is a position low. If he sees opportunity, he will be a values fantasy asset.
Johnson emerged as the clear #1 back in the playoffs for the Cardinals last season. He had a strong finish to 2015 and looks to carry that over to 2016. He is a threat both on the ground and in the air, making him interesting in PPR leagues and giving him a good upside. He should have a productive season.
He saw his usage drop last season due to the multi-dimensional attack that was the Bengals offence. The team averaged three TDs a game and scored with ease. However, Mohammed Sanu and Marvin Jones were both lost to free agency. Green should be the beneficiary of those two going their separate ways and should find his way back into the top 5 for wide outs.
Gronk is an elite player at a premium position. He has been ranked no.1 or no.2 at tight end in four of the past five years. At a position where points don’t come as consistently, Gronk is the one exception. He is a favorite for Brady in his pass first offence. If he can stay healthy, he is no doubt a first round draft choice candidate.
