Add rookie WR Marquise Lee to the mix for this list. He is now the projected WR # 2 starter along with Cecil Shorts in J-Ville...

Will he stay the starter and fight off Robinson to keep the position? All eyes will be on this battle in camp this summer since Blackmon is not even expected to play this season.



However, temper expectations and don't pick him too early if he keeps his slot. I would love to get him as a WR # 4 on draft day in PPR. The Jags will throw the ball a great deal since they will have to pass just to stay in games. We know that QB Chad Henne will most likely be the starter until at least mid-season since they want rookie QB Bortles to sit and learn.

Lee is a speed demon on the field and can play just about any WR position.



Watch this situation closely in camp....

Lee was a guy I wanted my Niners to pick up. I think he's going to be one of the most productive WR's out of this years coveted corps.

Andre Ellington will be getting 25 to 30 touches a game according to coach Bruce Arians, and he will be the Cardinals # 1 back.



No surprise here. However, I doubt if Ellington can stand up to the punishment all year long. He is more of a third down pass catching back. But the Cardinals will give him his shot.



Ellington has to play against the run defenses of Seattle, SanFrancisco, and what could be a dominating run-defense in the Rams this season.



We will have to wait and see.

Reed is a beast, i agree with both of you. DJax vanished and popped up again last year under Foles. I like DJax, but he was a product of Nick Foles last year IMO. That doesn't mean he can stretch the field and do great things for that WAS offense, but I don't see him being a stud in WAS.

You have to think his presence hurts Garcon's numbers a bit, but it's nice to see RG3 getting another weapon... he could have a strong fantasy career from here on out. RG3 is very underrated in dynasty formats right now.

Owen Daniels said that he and Dennis Pitta will be catching a lot of balls in Gary Kubiak's offense.



If you had to take one, of course Pitta would have to be the guy. Pitta says he is close to 100 percent but still has some things to work out.

If you have a 20 round draft or more, it would be great to grab Pitta early, then sneak a late pick in Owens to ensure you have that position solidified.

If Pitta stays healthy, he will have a big year. I see Daniels as a TE #2 in PPR even if Pitta stays healthy. The Baltimore offense is centered around their pass catching TE's.



They are both high risk/high reward players going into camp.

I agree with you Smitty,



Reed has had 4 concussions so far. And he hid one of them. Major health risk but he is just too important in the passing game for RG-3's confidence.



DJax is a player that will be a decoy mostly but he will get deep several times. I can see him getting long chunks of yardage with fewer catches.



RG-3 looks to Reed, then Garcon first on the field. And I think Reed will put up potent numbers IF, and I mean a big IFFFFFF, he can stay healthy.

WR Kenny Britt is impressing the Rams coaches at OTA's. Watch him in pre-season.



The question is, can he come back from all of his injuries to show off his freakish ball catching ability once again?



We will see.

All great names to toss out, fellas.



I think Joique Bell is a slam dunk no risk/high reward RB3/flex that can bring you unexpected RB2 type numbers.



Montee Ball above is a top 2-5 fantasy rusher this year if he stays healthy and holds onto the football (fumbling wasn't a problem with him prior to his rookie year, I don't think he will have an issue with it moving forward). He is an obvious name to throw out, but fun one.



Larry Fitzgerald is someone to watch and someone that could bounce back to 1100-1200 and 8-10.



I love the Boykin call up above.



Andre Ellington... heh, check out his 2014 Projections via the Draft Analyzer (based on your own scoring)... you will see how much love he is getting from FFS this year. Let's just say it's a lot of love :)



Great convo you got here, fellas. Get ready for topics like this each and every hour once we migrate the DraftCalc forums over here. The energy you both have will be welcomed with open arms by our the insanely-active DraftCalc-turned-Starters crowd!

Redskins coordinator said today that TE Jordan Reed will be a key player in the offense.

This is no surprise. The only question is can he hold up and stay off the injured reserve list. He has had numerous concussions and one more just might put him out for an entire year.



As we noted earlier on this thread, if he stays healthy, he easily becomes a top # 5 PPR TE in fantasy drafts.

Smitty,





Ellington is no way going to get 25 to 30 touches a game. That is crazy talk from Arians. However, if you read between the lines, he might be saying that Ellington will get a lot of passing targets as well????? We will see. Another thing that bothers me is that he will be playing against the run defenses of San Fran, Seattle, and what should be a much improved Ram run defense. For me, he is only a great PPR guy to target.



Here is my feeling on Fitz. He will be pulling double teams all year long which I think will open it up more for M. Floyd on the other side. We saw that happening last season. If the Cardinals O-line bounces back and can stay healthy for once, then Fitz will have better numbers than last year because Palmer will have more time to throw. We will see.



I would feel better taking Floyd as a WR # 3 then grabbing Fitz as my anchor WR though....
