Davante Adams, Packers

Managed to put up WR1 numbers in the eight games Brett Hundley started last season; the sky is the limit to what he can do in a full season as Aaron Rodgers‘ No. 1 weapon. – Koerner

His 5.3-61.9-0.67 line with Brett Hundley would have still landed him among the top 12 wideouts in PPR points per game. – Raybon

Nelson Agholor, Eagles

Managed 12.0 PPR points per game in 13 games with Carson Wentz in last year’s breakout campaign. – Freedman

Averaged 7.5 targets a game over his last eight regular and postseason games; Juju Smith-Schuster arbitrage. – Raybon 

Keenan Allen, Chargers

His 7.0 receptions per game since 2015 trail only Antonio Brown. – Raybon 

Was overrated last year with a 31% air-yard market share that ranked outside of the top 20. – Freedman

Geronimo Allison, Packers

The favorite for Aaron Rodgers’ No. 3 wide receiver duties should always be on the radar; Allison failed to be pushed by rookie camp bust J’Mon Moore. – Raybon

Danny Amendola, Dolphins

Could inherit a high-volume workload à la Jarvis Landry — he averaged 5.5 catches per game in three seasons before joining the Patriots — but if he got that workload he’d break into thousands of pieces. – Raybon

Robby Anderson, Jets

Faces very little competition for targets and has shown the ability to put up numbers no matter who is under center. – Koerner

Was top-15 in 12 games with Josh McCown — but then the team fired its offensive coordinator for featuring him too much and brought in two new quarterbacks. – Raybon

Doug Baldwin, Seahawks

Seattle nostalgically wants to commit more to the run, but Baldwin finished between WR8 and WR14 in each of the past three seasons and could eclipse career-high 125 targets after the team substituted replacement-level talent for Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson — if his knee cooperates. – Raybon

Cole Beasley, Cowboys

Will get volume by default as the Cowboys try to recreate the better days of 2016 (when Beasley led the team with 75 catches). – Raybon

Has averaged 11.1 PPR points per game in 10 games without Dez Bryant over the last half decade (and 16.5 in three with Dak Prescott at quarterback). – Freedman

Odell Beckham Jr., Giants

Ninety-plus catches, 1,300-plus yards and double-digit touchdowns in each of first three seasons, and 2017 full-season pace was 101-1,208-12. – Raybon

Kelvin Benjamin, Bills

Less-than-ideal speed and a less-than-ideal quarterback situation, but still Devin Funchess/Michael Crabtree arbitrage as big-bodied top option on low-volume. – Raybon

Travis Benjamin, Chargers

Best-ball target; splash plays will be there, but they’ll be impossible to predict. – Raybon

Tyler Boyd, Bengals

Bengals slot receiver for if you’re ever in a PPR bye-week crunch. – Raybon

Antonio Brown, Steelers

Top-three PPR wideout every year since 2013. – Raybon

John Brown, Ravens

Sleeper who’s good enough to command more targets than Michael Crabtree so long as his sickle cell trait cooperates. – Raybon

Shell of self the past two seasons with just 836 scrimmage yards in 25 games but has league-winning potential if his sickle-cell issues can be managed. – Freedman

Hopefully the change of scenery in Baltimore can get his career back on track; he’s in a good situation to become fantasy-relevant again if he can stay on the field. – Koerner

Dez Bryant, Free Agent

Finding a team is taking him almost as long as getting in and out of his breaks. – Raybon

X-throwing problem child with position-high 73 touchdowns receiving since 2010 rookie season. – Freedman

Martavis Bryant, Raiders

Boom-or-bust receiver with top-10 upside in make-or-break year. – Freedman

Suspension rumors now look unfounded, but it’s concerning that Bryant’s yards per reception have gone from 21.1 to 15.1 to 12.1 in his three pro seasons, especially since he’s now paired with the quickest quarterback to get rid of the ball in 2017. – Raybon

Brice Butler, Cardinals

The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder has averaged 8.8 yards per target in his career and had a shot the No. 2 receiver role, but injury-plagued quiet preseason hurt his stock. – Raybon

Antonio Calloway, Browns

Talented rookie gets to try his hand at being the new Corey Coleman. – Raybon

Randall Cobb, Packers

Hauled in 6.0 catches on 9.0 targets per game in Aaron Rodgers’ five full games and is the favorite to finish second on the team in catches with Jordy Nelson gone. – Raybon

Keelan Cole, Jaguars

Led Jags last year with 748 yards receiving, which they ‘rewarded’ by re-signing Marqise Lee, signing Donte Moncrief, and drafting D.J. Chark. – Freedman

The Jaguars wide receiver depth chart is wide open and Cole was the WR10 in Weeks 11-16 last season (granted, Allen Robinson was long gone and Allen Hurns was also unavailable). – Koerner

Brandin Cooks, Rams

Joins Antonio Brown and Larry Fitzgerald as one of just three players with 1,000 yards and six touchdowns receiving in each of the past three seasons. – Freedman

Has major upside as potential No. 1 option in a Sean McVay offense catching passes from a quarterback who ranked sixth in deep accuracy (PFF), but big-play reliance and uncertain target share create a wide range of potential outcomes. – Raybon 

Amari Cooper, Raiders

A combination of better health and more creative usage could lead to a bounce-back campaign (has lined up in the slot frequently during OTAs after finishing third in slot yards per route run in 2017, per PFF), but reported preseason weight gain and failure to live up to ADP since rookie year are concerns. – Raybon

Michael Crabtree, Ravens

Of the 37 wide receivers with at least 250 targets since 2015, Crabtree ranks last in yards per target (6.49); of the 36 quarterbacks with at least 500 attempts since 2015, Joe Flacco ranks last in yards per attempt (6.27); I’d rather be a year early than a year late to a bust due to age-related decline. – Raybon

Jamison Crowder, Redskins

Has sneaky volume upside given Alex Smith’s propensity to throw short and only into open windows: Smith has ranked outside the top 30 in average target depth for five straight seasons and was second-to-last in rate of tight window throws last season, while Crowder ranked 14th overall in average separation when targeted (3.2 yards). – Raybon

Will suffer from the development of Josh Doctson, arrival of Paul Richardson and Trey Quinn, and departure of Kirk Cousins– Freedman

Corey Davis, Titans

Injuries forced him to miss valuable chemistry-building time with Marcus Mariota during the preseason and limited his effectiveness for most of the regular season; showed promise down the stretch and is likely to break out in Year 2. – Raybon

Was hamstrung with injuries last year but is a collegiate producer ready for a second-season breakout in a new pass-oriented offense. – Freedman

Stefon Diggs, Vikings

Has missed 2-3 games in each of his three seasons, but he has put together back-to-back top-14 finishes in wide receiver PPR points per game and gets an upgrade at quarterback. – Raybon

Josh Doctson, Redskins

Was supposed to be good but has averaged 2.2 catches per game and caught just 44% of his targets in two seasons. – Raybon

Julian Edelman, Patriots

Returning from an ACL tear and suspended for the first four games of the year but Tom Brady’s No. 1 wide receiver for the past half decade. – Freedman

Has averaged six or more catches per game for four years straight, but ACL surgery, age (32), and a four-game PED ban make him a high-risk/high-reward stash. – Raybon
 

Quincy Enunwa, Jets

The door is open for him to approach 105 targets again; may also work as the team’s de-facto tight end. – Raybon

Big-bodied red-zone receiver with the best quarterbacks he’s ever had in Josh McCown and Sam Darnold. – Freedman

Mike Evans, Buccaneers

One of three players in NFL history (along with Randy Mossand A.J. Green) to open his career with four straight 1,000-yard receiving campaigns. – Freedman

His 4.6-65.5-0.35 line over his past 20 games makes him more WR2 than WR1, but 6-foot-5, 230-pound size has led to two 12-touchdown campaigns in four years and leaves his WR1 upside intact. – Raybon

Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals

Has more receptions (325) over the past three years than any player not named Antonio Brown (343). – Freedman

The league’s finest wine impressively put up better numbers in the second half of his age-34 season (7.4-74-0.38 vs. 6.3-71-0.38), but history suggests we should temper expectations: The 20 receivers with 1,000-yard seasons at age 34 have dipped by 3.0 games and 12.9 yards per game at age 35. – Raybon

Will Fuller V, Texans

The 2016 first-rounder has averaged 7.6 PPR points per game in 20 career games without Deshaun Watson but — small sample alert! — 21.0 in four games with Watson. – Raybon

Devin Funchess, Panthers

Legitimately improved his skills in 2017, and though he commanded only 6.0 targets per game in the seven games Greg Olsen played compared to 7.8 in the nine he missed, he should be a WR3 at worst and has sneaky 10+ touchdown upside. – Raybon

Taylor Gabriel, Bears

Matt Nagy’s new Albert Wilson will likely have boom weeks but must prove he can be productive outdoors. – Raybon

Michael Gallup, Cowboys

Showed decent chemistry with Dak Prescott in the preseason but may not come into value until later on in the season. – Raybon

Above-average rookie receiver in size and athleticism with near-elite college production on a team with many available targets. – Freedman

Pierre Garcon, 49ers

Has more competition for targets than when he averaged 8.3 per game last season, but still likely to have a high-volume role in a Kyle Shanahan offense catching passes from Jimmy Garoppolo– Raybon

Ted Ginn Jr., Saints

Hasn’t posted fewer than 739 yards and four touchdowns in his three age-30+ seasons and showed he’s still got it with a 12-187-1 line in the 2017 Playoffs, but could cede targets to Tre’Quan Smith and/or Cameron Meredith as the season progresses. – Raybon

Field-stretching complementary receiver with 50.3 receptions, 825 scrimmage yards and six touchdowns per year over the past three seasons. – Freedman

Chris Godwin, Buccaneers

Big-time sleeper who averaged over 2 yards per target more than both Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson in his rookie year; coaches have already begun talking him up as a starter in Year 2; arbitrage version of Kenny Golladay– Raybon

Kenny Golladay, Lions

Has ability to be team’s No. 1 receiver by end of season. – Freedman

Six-foot-four, 218-pound second-year breakout candidate was second on the team in share of air yards while active (23%) and likely will get a chunk of Eric Ebron’s 86 vacated targets after Detroit downgraded at the position. – Raybon

Marquise Goodwin, 49ers

Tyreek Hill arbitrage who averaged a 5.8-78-0.20 line with Jimmy Garoppolo and is going criminally under-drafted as Jimmy’s clear No. 1; all he needs is touchdown luck to crack the top-10. – Raybon 

Managed 15.1 PPR points per game in Jimmy Garoppolo’s five starts last year but will lose targets to a returning Pierre Garcon and rookie Dante Pettis– Freedman

Josh Gordon, Browns

I’m fine with chasing 2013’s 87-1,646-9 ceiling when he managed a 1,000-yard 16-game pace last season despite being able to reel in only 43% of DeShone Kizer’s adventures; just be prepared to lose him at any time. – Raybon

Ryan Grant, Colts

Never forget: The Ravens thought (think?) he’s better than Michael Crabtree. – Raybon

A.J. Green, Bengals

Top-five talent coming off a 1,000-yard, eight-touchdown ‘bad season’ in which he led the NFL with a 46% air-yard market share. – Freedman

Averaged 67.4 receiving yards per game in 2017, his first year under 80 since 2011; will rebound if free-agent tackle Cordy Glenn and rookie first-round center Billy Price give pressure-adverse Andy Dalton more time to throw. – Raybon

Tyreek Hill, Chiefs

Speed freak who’s averaged 5.0 receptions per game over his last 23 and has scored 16 of 20 career touchdowns from 30+ yards out; Patrick Mahomes raises his ceiling to a potential top-five finish. – Raybon 

Has averaged 5.0 receptions, 79.3 scrimmage yards and 0.7 all-purpose touchdowns per game since stealing the No. 1 role from an injured Jeremy Maclin in November 2016. – Freedman

T.Y. Hilton, Colts

Was neutralized by double-coverage and Jacoby Brissett in 2017 en route to five-year low 57-966-4 line but should return to his high-volume ways with Andrew Luck back. – Raybon

Chris Hogan, Patriots

Had at least four catches and 60 yards in 6-of-8 games before injuring his shoulder in Week 8 last year, and the departure of Brandin Cooks and his 1,759 air yards (sixth in NFL) could lead to more downfield targets. – Raybon

DeAndre Hopkins, Texans

Trails only Randy MossA.J. Green and Larry Fitzgeraldwith his career-opening five-year stretch of 413 receptions, 5,865 yards and 36 touchdowns. – Freedman

No. 1, No. 7, No. 3 in targets the past three seasons. – Raybon

Allen Hurns, Cowboys

Going from one run-first offense without a No. 1 wide receiver to another. – Freedman

The favorite to be Dak Prescott’s No. 1 wideout has averaged 9-15 PPR points in every year of his career while catching passes from Blake Bortles, but his role is far from secure. – Raybon

DeSean Jackson, Buccaneers

Thirty-two-year-old who entered the pre-wash cycle last year with career lows in yards per reception (13.4) and yards per game (47.6) but may salvage value with a move to the slot. – Raybon

Has 1,000 scrimmage yards in 7-of-10 NFL seasons but had a team-worst quarterback-receiver mark of 5.77 adjusted yards per attempt with Jameis Winston last year. – Freedman

Alshon Jeffery, Eagles

Has averaged 1,021.8 yards and 6.4 touchdowns per season over the past half decade despite missing 11 games and catching the supermajority of his passes from the unholy quintet of Jay CutlerJosh McCownJimmy ClausenBrian Hoyer and Matt Barkley– Freedman

High-upside talent who sustained himself on touchdowns while posting five-year lows in receptions (3.6) and yards per game (49.3) amidst playing through a torn rotator cuff; perplexingly hasn’t recorded a 100-yard game over his last 30 regular-season and playoff contests and may not be ready for Week 1 following surgery. – Raybon

Julio Jones, Falcons

All-time NFL leader with 95.3 receiving yards per game. – Freedman

Has 1,400+ receiving yards for four years and counting; 3-of-27 touchdown conversion rate in the red zone over the past two seasons is a cause for concern but also leaves room for massive upside. – Raybon 

Marvin Jones, Lions

Looked like a star down the stretch in 2017, going for 85 or more yards in eight of his last 11 games while being targeted a would-be career-high 7.4 times per game. – Raybon

Zay Jones, Bills

After a disappointing rookie season and a bizarre off-the-field incident, many will write him off, but he has a ton of talent and plays for a team with no choice but to stick with him. – Koerner

Exposed as a rookie, literally. – Freedman

Jermaine Kearse, Jets

Murky abdominal issue opens the door for his role to be snatched by Quincy Enunwa. – Raybon

League-average roster clogger coming off his most productive season. – Freedman

Jeremy Kerley, Bills

Slot journeyman who’s usually good for 2-4 catches and 20-40 yards a game on a forgettable bottom-feeder. – Raybon

Christian Kirk, Cardinals

Sleeper who’s on track to either open the year as the No. 2 wideout or take hold of the job in short order. – Raybon

Athletic and versatile rookie receiver who will study the ways of the force under Grand Master Jedi Larry Fitzgerald– Freedman

Cooper Kupp, Rams

Averaged 6.0 receptions for 98.7 yards with Robert Woods out but only 3.7 for 46.8 when Woods played and third-ranked 23 red-zone targets were somewhat misleading as only seven came inside the 10, but he should take a step forward in Year 2. – Raybon

Jarvis Landry, Browns

Has been a target monster his entire career but that will change with the Browns and is a significant blow to his value in PPR. – Koerner

Rookie-year 84-758-5 line is probably a fairer expectation than his last-three average of 105-1,093-5.6. – Raybon

Marqise Lee, Jaguars

Underachieving and undersized so-called No. 1 receiver with eight scrimmage touchdowns in four years. – Freedman

One of 13 wide receivers to command at least a 35% share of his team’s air yards and got $16.5 million guaranteed while the Jags let Allen Robinson walk; injured knee in Week 3 of preseason puts his 2018 season in doubt. – Raybon 

Tyler Lockett, Seahawks

Motley crew of wideouts behind him should allow him to top his three-year range of targets (66-71), catches (41-51) and yards (555-664); preseason toe injury not ideal. – Raybon

Slated for career-high targets without the departed Paul Richardson– Freedman

Brandon Marshall, Seahawks

Has caught 47.8% of his targets over the past two years and (after his Seattle stint ends in ruin) will star on Broadway in the role of Fantine. – Freedman

He appeared to be well past his prime for the Giants last year before suffering a season-ending ankle injury. – Koerner

Washed but will likely open the year as a starter on the outside. – Raybon

Rishard Matthews, Titans

Entering his age-29 season without a 1,000-yard campaign to his name. – Freedman

Put up 11-13 PPR points per game in each of the past three seasons but will likely be third in line for targets behind Corey Davis and Delanie Walker. – Raybon

Cameron Meredith, Saints

Could be anything from Drew Brees’ No. 2 receiver to a weekly inactive coming off ACL surgery. – Raybon

Missed 2017 with an ACL tear but in 2016 averaged 14.0 PPR points per game in 12 starts as the leading receiver for the Bears. – Freedman

Anthony Miller, Bears

Expected to contribute immediately in the slot in Matt Nagy’s offense with upside for more and reminds some of Antonio Brown, but Bears pass-catchers corps may be more crowded than initially thought.  – Raybon

Donte Moncrief, Jaguars

Got $9.6 million guaranteed and operated as a starter all camp; has some post-hype appeal but will likely struggle for weekly consistency even if Marqise Lee is on the sideline. – Raybon

Ill-equipped post-Allen Robinson franchise rebound. – Freedman

J.J. Nelson, Cardinals

Shaping up as a situational deep threat at best under the new coaching regime. – Raybon

Volatile speedster with 19.1 PPR points per game in his seven outings with a receiving score over the past two years. – Freedman

D.J. Moore, Panthers

First-rounder stuck in a crowded group with Torrey Smith and Curtis Samuel and Co. behind the Big 3 of Greg Olsen, Devin Funchess, and Christian McCaffrey. – Raybon

Percy Harvin-level athlete with the thick body, outstanding college production, and first-year potential of Hakeem Nicks– Freedman

Jordy Nelson, Raiders

Has slowed down but over the past two years still had 20 touchdowns in his 21 games with a healthy, competent quarterback (. . . who just happened to be Aaron Rodgers). – Freedman

Washed 33-year-old locker room presence with an outside shot at a late-career Anquan Boldin-type slot resurgence in Jon Gruden’s time machine, though his apologists fail to acknowledge him not clearing 35 yards over his last nine games while Davante Adams put up WR1 numbers with Brett Hundley. – Raybon

DeVante Parker, Dolphins

The good news is he set career highs in per-game catches (4.4) and yards (51.5); the bad news is it all came without Ryan Tannehill; broken finger in the preseason could end up costing him reps in the long run. – Raybon

Dante Pettis, 49ers

Dynasty stash with ideal talent and quarterback situation, but it looks like he’ll open the year as the No. 4 receiver at best. – Raybon

Second-round speedster drafted to be the T.Y. Hilton to Jimmy Garoppolo’s metaphorical Andrew Luck– Freedman

Terrelle Pryor, Jets

High-upside 29-year-old in-process project player with one volume-fueled successful season and countless shattered mirrors in his history. – Freedman

Paul Richardson, Redskins

Decent shot at leading the Redskins in air yards, but his floor is in the 2017 Terrelle Pryor range if Alex Smith reverts to his old risk-averse self. – Raybon

Calvin Ridley, Falcons

Will likely start the year as kick returner and rotational No. 3 wideout but could eventually command more targets than Mohamed Sanu. – Raybon

First-round rookie with concerns about age, college production, size, athleticism, and NFL opportunity. – Freedman

Allen Robinson, Bears

Robinson’s 2015 (151-80-1,400-14) and 2016 (150-73-883-6) seasons with Blake Bortles serve as a good indication of his ceiling and floor; I have him conservatively ranked due to body type prone to volatile fantasy production, quiet preseason, and return from ACL surgery. – Raybon

John Ross, Bengals

Shedded his invisibility cloak with a long touchdown in Week 3 of the preseason and has late-round flier appeal as Bengals’ No. 2 outside receiver. – Raybon

Scored literally -0.8 fantasy points last year as a rookie but has elite athleticism and first-round pedigree. – Freedman

Emmanuel Sanders, Broncos

At 31 years of age, Sanders has seen his per-game production plummet for three years straight but looks like his old explosive self in the preseason; more slot work should keep his PPR floor high. – Raybon

Mohamed Sanu, Falcons

Improved from WR52 in 2016 to WR30 in 2017, but first-round pick Calvin Ridley is more of a threat to his target share than gadget player/situational deep threat Taylor Gabriel was. – Raybon

Tre’Quan Smith, Saints

Ready to follow in the footsteps of Michael Thomas, Marques Colston, Brandin Cooks and Kenny Stills as a first-year contributor for head coach Sean Payton. – Freedman

JuJu Smith-Schuster, Steelers

Ranked 12th among wide receivers in PPR points per game (14.7) despite being a rookie and fighting for scraps behind Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell– Raybon

Willie Snead, Ravens

Post-PED afterthought when not catching passes from Drew Brees. – Raybon

Snead joins a Ravens team with a fairly thin depth chart at wide receiver; if oft-injured John Brown were to ever go down he’d very likely become their No. 2. – Koerner

Slot-only receiver with uncertain skill, unknown future usage and a massive drop in quarterback quality. – Freedman

Sterling Shepard, Giants

Will be squeezed by the return of Odell Beckham Jr., development of Evan Engram, addition of Saquon Barkley, and mediocrity of Eli Manning– Freedman

Rock-solid third-year pro has been a WR3/FLEX with Odell Beckham Jr. (11.4 PPR points on 6.3 targets) and a WR2 without OBJ (14.4 PPR points on 9.0 targets). – Raybon 

Kenny Stills, Dolphins

Boom-or-bust deep-ball specialist with the potential for career-high targets sans Jarvis Landry– Freedman

Tough-to-predict dark horse to lead Miami in receiving has averaged only 4.5 targets and 7.8 PPR points in 28 games with Ryan Tannehill but 6.5 targets and 11.5 PPR points in 19 games without him; Robby Anderson arbitrage. – Raybon

Courtland Sutton, Broncos

Likely Day 1 starter in three-wide sets; better value than Demaryius Thomas given each’s respective ADP. – Raybon

No. 3 receiver with immediate No. 1 upside behind old and slowing wideouts. – Freedman

Golden Tate, Lions

The definition of a fantasy WR2 has 90-92 catches and WR12 (2017), WR17 (2016), and WR24 (2015) finishes over the past three seasons as Matthew Stafford’s go-to chain mover. – Raybon

Taywan Taylor, Titans

Shifty breakout candidate in the slot in Matt LaFleur’s new offense who looks better and better the longer Rishard Matthews remains on the PUP list. – Raybon

Trent Taylor, 49ers

Deep sleeper with 2016 Cole Beasley-like upside as Jimmy Garoppolo’s slot receiver. – Raybon

Adam Thielen, Vikings

Finished as the WR8 in 2017 despite scoring only four touchdowns and gets an upgrade at quarterback with Kirk Cousins– Freedman

Demaryius Thomas, Broncos

Entering his age-31 season with nagging injuries and declining production in three straight seasons, Thomas is best thought of as a high-volume possession receiver; I’d prefer him as my fantasy WR3 rather than WR2. – Raybon

Michael Thomas, Saints

Leads all receivers in NFL history with 196 receptions in his first two seasons. – Freedman

Double-digit PPR points in 29 of 34 career games (including playoffs). – Raybon

Mike Wallace, Eagles

A less-washed version of Torrey Smith; could benefit from single coverage in a potent offense. – Raybon

James Washington, Steelers

The Steelers tend to hit on wide receivers in the draft more often than not; Washington could inherit Martavis Bryant’s old role by simply beating out perennial strugglers Justin Hunter and Darrius Heyward-Bey. – Raybon

Sammy Watkins, Chiefs

Volume is a legit concern, but don’t forget he racked up 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns on only 96 targets in 2015, has a cannon-armed quarterback, and is entering his first surgery-free offseason in four years. – Raybon

Dede Westbrook, Jaguars

Preseason DFS moneymaker with enough talent to lead the Jags in receiving yards. – Raybon

Über-talented speedster with No. 1 ability but stuck in a run-first offense with a shot-put quarterback. – Freedman

Mike Williams, Chargers

Year 1 dud gives reason for pause, but he’s expected to play the role of Antonio Gates/Hunter Henry in the red zone. – Raybon

First-round second-year red-zone threat with Mike Evans upside and Kevin White downside. – Freedman

Terrance Williams, Cowboys

Not out of the question that he leads Dallas in receiving. – Raybon

Has averaged 12.2 PPR points per game in 10 Dez Bryant-less appearances since 2013 rookie season (and 12.6 in three such outings with quarterback Dak Prescott). – Freedman

Tyrell Williams, Chargers

Hunter Henry’s season-ending injury and Mike Williams‘ averages of 9.5 yards per game and 8.6 yards per catch as a rookie leave the door open for Tyrell to again work as the No. 2 receiver. – Raybon

Albert Wilson, Dolphins

His head coach insists he’s “not a slot receiver” even though he ran 58% of his routes and averaged 10.6 yards per target there last season. – Raybon

Was brought in to help replace the 100+ targets that Jarvis Landry left behind; his ability to line up both in the slot and outside should allow him to see enough snaps to keep an eye on. – Koerner

Used to 55-ish targets per year with the Chiefs, will now fight Danny Amendola, Leonte Carroo and Jakeem Grant for Jarvis Landry’s discarded slot scraps. – Freedman

Robert Woods, Rams

Might not be even the second-best wide receiver on the Rams. – Freedman

Could see reduced volume with the arrival of Brandin Cooks and maturation of Cooper Kupp, but the post-post-hype breakout star comes at a nice discount for someone who averaged 5.0 catches for 71.0 yards per game (including playoffs) and led his team in target and air-yard share while active. – Raybon
