PLAYER OUTLOOKS WRS

Nelson Agholor

NELSON AGHOLOR, PHI

Nelson Agholor is expected to be the No. 3 receiver for the Eagles this season, and he has minimal Fantasy value in most formats. Philadelphia added DeSean Jackson this offseason to be the No. 2 receiver behind Alshon Jeffery, and Agholor will play in the slot. He could face competition for targets from rookie receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside as well, but we expect Agholor to be No. 3 on the depth chart. Along with Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, as well as the running backs out of the backield, it could be hard for Agholor to build off his production from the past two seasons, when he combined for 126 catches for 1,504 yards and 12 touchdowns on 192 targets. Agholor should only be drafted with a late-round pick in most leagues, with his value slightly higher in PPR.

DANNY AMENDOLA, DET

Danny Amendola signed with Detroit this offseason, and he’s expected to be the slot receiver for the Lions. The 33-year-old receiver will likely have a similar season to what he had with the Dolphins in 2018, and he scored at least 13 PPR points in four of 15 games. Detroit’s top two receivers will be Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones, and Amendola will have the chance to be No. 3 in terms of targets for quarterback Matthew Stafford. Amendola is only worth a late-round pick in deeper PPR leagues this season.

J.J. ARCEGA-WHITESIDE, PHI

The Eagles selected rookie receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside in the second round of the NFL Draft from Stanford, and he’s expected to be the No. 4 receiver for Philadelphia this year. The Eagles have an established trio of receivers ahead of Arcega-Whiteside on the depth chart with Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor, which should limit the Fantasy value for Arcega-Whiteside as a rookie. Along with that, the Eagles also have Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert and running backs who catch the ball out of the backield to compete with Arcega-Whiteside for targets. He’s only worth a late-round lier in deep seasonal leagues, and he’s a third-round pick in rookie-only drafts.

TAVON AUSTIN, DAL

Tavon Austin is back with the Cowboys this season, but he has minimal Fantasy value in most leagues. Austin will be the No. 5 receiver at best in Dallas behind Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Randall Cobb and Allen Hurns, but the Cowboys will obviously lean on Jason Witten and Ezekiel Elliott as well. Austin has limited upside, and he’s not worth drafting in most formats.

DOUG BALDWIN, SEA

Doug Baldwin’s NFL career appears to be over after the 30-year-old was released by Seattle in May with a failed physical. His body was beat up, and he had three surgeries this offseason on his knee, shoulder and groin. He also limped through the 2018 campaign with a knee injury. We doubt Baldwin will change his mind about playing again, but you never know. Still, he should not be drafted in any leagues this season.

COLE BEASLEY, BUF

Cole Beasley signed with Buffalo this offseason, and he’s expected to be the slot receiver for the Bills. Buffalo has a revamped receiving corps this year with John Brown and yler Kroft joining Beasley, and we’ll also see how the Bills use their young receivers in Robert Foster and Zay Jones. Beasley’s role should be deined, and he should become a reliable weapon for second-year quarterback Josh Allen. In 2018, Beasley scored double digits in PPR points in six games for the Cowboys, and he has at least 65 catches and 670 yards in two of the past three seasons. He’s worth a late-round pick in deeper leagues, with his value slightly higher in PPR.

JOSH BELLAMY, NYJ

Josh Bellamy will compete for potential playing time with the Jets this summer after landing a two-year deal. Not bad for a backup receiver and specialteamer with ive career receiving touchdowns and 999 yards in 75 games. Until Bellamy is a regular in the Jets offense, Fantasy owners shouldn’t count on him.

TRAVIS BENJAMIN, LAC

Travis Benjamin could see a bigger role for the Chargers this season with yrell Williams gone as a free agent to the Raiders. Benjamin has seen his production decline in each of the past three seasons since coming to the Chargers as a free agent in 2016. Part of that has been due to a crowded receiving corps, and in 2018, he was behind Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and yrell Williams, who all had at least 65 targets compared to just 24 for Benjamin. yrell Williams had 65 targets for 41 catches, 653 yards and ive touchdowns, and maybe a good portion of that production goes to Benjamin. However, with Hunter Henry (ACL) back this year, that could be another roadblock for Benjamin’s production. He’s not worth drafting in most leagues, but he could be a waiver wire addition during the season if he takes advantage of the potential targets coming his way.

KELVIN BENJAMIN, FA

Kelvin Benjamin remains a free agent at the time of publication, and we’ll see if a new team can help revive his career in 2019. After a standout rookie campaign in 2014 in Carolina, Benjamin has struggled over the past four seasons. He suffered a torn ACL in 2015 then played moderately well in 2016, but has been a terrible Fantasy option ever since. In 2017, he was traded from Carolina to Buffalo, but the Bills waived him in 2018. He signed with the Chiefs in December, but he had minimal impact in Kansas City. Keep an eye on his future destination, but it’s doubtful Benjamin will be an attractive Fantasy option in most leagues on Draft Day. Most likely, he won’t be a useful Fantasy receiver in 2019.

BRAXTON BERRIOS, NE

Braxton Berrios will compete for a roster spot with the Patriots this season, but he isn’t expected to make a big impact even if he makes the team. Berrios, a former sixth-round pick in 2018, did not play as a rookie and was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury. The Patriots might need him this season with several guys gone (Rob Gronkowski, Josh Gordon, Cordarrelle Patterson and Chris Hogan), but Berrios will still have to prove he deserves targets ahead of Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett, N’Keal Harry and Demaryius Thomas. Keep an eye on Berrios during training camp, but he’s not worth drafting in most leagues.

TYLER BOYD, CIN

The Bengals are hoping for Tyler Boyd to remain dangerous as their slot receiver and No. 2 option behind A.J. Green. He burst on the scene last year for career-highs of 13.5 yards per catch and seven touchdowns in 14 games before spraining his knee. He was helped mightily by playing with Green and averaging 7.7 targets per game, a combination that led to some soft coverage and nice production. Green will be back, and so too will be tight ends Tyler Eifert and C.J. Uzomah, both of whom could earn more looks from Andy. But the new offense the Bengals will install should utilize Boyd plenty, just as a similar offense in Los Angeles boosted the Rams’ slot targets. Fantasy managers should consider Boyd in Round 4 in PPR leagues and late Round 4/early Round 5 in non-PPR formats.
