WR 2nd Year Players

 

Ridley, Calvin - ATL

Ridley, Calvin

Just like last season, Ridley has a perfect situation. He's on a good offense with a veteran quarterback and Julio Jones on the other side of the field to draw all of the attention. He's also a very talented young receiver who should continue to improve. Ridley only had six games last season with more than five targets. He had 10 games where he didn't top 50 yards. And that was on a team that became much more pass-heavy than planned because its defense was ravaged by the injury bug. Assuming the defense bounces back, the pass volume could decrease for the Falcons this season, which would make Ridley even more touchdown-dependent. That's a frustrating player to count on in PPR.


Smith, Tre'Quan - NO

Smith, Tre

Second-year receiver Tre'Quan Smith will compete for more playing time in Saints camp this summer. His versatility to line up out wide and in the slot will almost certainly keep him in the offensive loop, but finding targets in an offense with guys like Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara and new tight end Jared Cook won't be easy to get regularly. That'll change if the 6-foot-2 speedster is wise on the playbook and his route running is improved. If the preseason buzz around him builds, expect him to get nabbed with a pick in Round 11 or later. If not, he'll remain as a wait-and-see prospect in long-term formats.


Hamilton, DaeSean - DEN

Hamilton, DaeSean

DaeSean Hamilton should be among the top three receivers for the Broncos this season along with Courtland Sutton and Emmanuel Sanders, but Hamilton's role could increase if Sanders in slow in his recovery from last year's Achilles' injury. As a rookie, Hamilton played sparingly until Sanders got hurt prior to Week 14. With Sanders out, Hamilton manned the slot in Denver, and he closed the final four games of the year averaging 13.3 PPR points per game, including two games with at least 16 PPR points. We hope Denver keeps Hamilton in the slot this year, but that could depend on Sanders. Hamilton is worth drafting with a mid-round pick in all leagues, with his value slightly higher in PPR, and he could have a big season if Sanders suffers a setback in his recovery.


Pettis, Dante - SF

Pettis, Dante

Pettis is the No. 1 WR on a team with Kyle Shanahan calling the plays and Jimmy Garoppolo throwing the football. In his final five games of his rookie season, Pettis caught 20 passes for 359 yards and scored four touchdowns. He should only get better in his second year. ... The Case Against:George Kittle is actually the No. 1 receiver on this team, and it's not close. Even during that hot finish, Pettis only averaged six targets per game. If his efficiency dips at all (it probably will) that won't be enough work to justify starting him most weeks. He also has more competition with the addition of Deebo Samuel and jalen Hurd. This team looks like it wants a committee at every position, which will make it hard for Pettis to reach his upside.


Ratley, Damion - CLE

Ratley, Damion

Drafted in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Ratley was buried on Cleveland's depth chart from the beginning of training camp. He did, however, have a solid four-game stretch in the beginning of the season when he hauled in 12 catches for 142 yards. From Week 10 on, though, the rookie wideout saw just one target as his time on the field disappeared. Ratley will likely fight for a depth role in 2019.


Sutton, Courtland - DEN

Sutton, Courtland

Sutton is the best outside receiver the Broncos have. Daesean Hamilton is good in the slot, as is Emmanuel Sanders, though Sanders is recovering from an Achilles tear. If Sutton develops as a route runner he could lead this team in targets and be the best red zone option.. After Sanders went down in 2018 Sutton was a disappointment and outplayed by Hamilton. He really only looked comfortable going down field and his new quarterback has been risk averse in the later years of his career.


Gallup, Michael - DAL

Gallup, Michael

Michael Gallup could be ready for a sophomore breakout this season, and he's someone to target in all leagues with a late-round pick. He will be the No. 2 receiver in Dallas this year opposite Amari Cooper, and he should prove to be a go-to option for Dak Prescott. Even with the addition of Randall Cobb and the return of Jason Witten, there should be enough targets to help Gallup produce as a low-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver. He won't be a weekly starter in most leagues barring a dramatic boost in production, but he did close last year with double digits in PPR points in three of his final five games. And in the NFL playoffs, he scored against Seattle in the wild-card round and had six catches for 119 yards in the divisional-round loss to the Rams.


Callaway, Antonio - CLE

Callaway, Antonio

Once the Browns acquired Odell Beckham in mid-March, Antonio Callaway's Fantasy prospects dried up. Known for his speed but not utilized enough that way, Callaway had just six games with 50-plus yards, none with more than 84, and three touchdowns from inside the 2-yard line (and only one deep bomb for a touchdown - from Tyrod Taylor). Now that Beckham and Jarvis Landry will hog plenty of targets from Baker Mayfield, Callaway feels more like a complementary piece in the Browns offense and a key special-teamer, not a breakout candidate who can help people win at Fantasy. Make sure you don't leave someone with more upside on the board if you take Callaway late on Draft Day.


Moore, DJ - CAR

Moore, DJ

After a few slow weeks, Moore showed off his big-play potential Sunday, skying over Marshon Lattimore in the second quarter to haul in a 38-yard pass, setting up another Carolina touchdown. Moore started and ended the season slow, but the latter can be attributed, at least in part, to Cam Newton's sore shoulder and the revolving door at quarterback that followed. So long as Newton is healthy in 2019, Moore has had some nice rookie moments from which to build.


Quinn, Trey - WAS

Quinn, Trey

Trey Quinn could be a sneaky Fantasy option this season given Washington's need at receiver, and Quinn could be Jamison Crowder's replacement in the slot. Washington's depth chart at receiver this year features Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson, Jordan Reed and rookies Terry McLaurin and Kelvin Harmon, and coach Jay Gruden has already starting praising Quinn, saying "I'm ready to watch Trey Quinn jump in that slot role and dominate the position. I'm excited for him." He's someone to watch in training camp, and he could be worth a late-round flier in deeper leagues, especially in PPR. He appeared in two games in 2018 and scored 13 PPR points in one outing.


Miller, Anthony - CHI

Miller, Anthony

As a rookie, Anthony Miller led the Bears with seven receiving touchdowns. He'll aim to lead them in more categories in 2019 presuming offseason shoulder surgery doesn't keep him off the field. One stat where he'll look to make a jump: targets. Last season he averaged just 3.6 per game while working mostly out of the slot. His role figures to be the same in 2019, albeit with more targets headed his way. It helps that the Bears didn't add any major names to their receiving corps, opening the door for Miller to be a bigger contributor. It's tempting to draft him ahead of teammate Allen Robinson as a Round 9 value pick. Miller's a nice receiver to stash on your bench and see how he begins his second season, though we'd prefer the likes of Christian Kirk and Courtland Sutton ahead of him.


Chark, DJ - JAC

Chark, DJ

Second-year speedster D.J. Chark must make the jump from struggling rookie to playmaker in order to keep his Fantasy prospects strong. A change in offensive scheme and quarterback should help him have a chance to put up more meaningful numbers, but he'll have to stay healthy and see an uptick in targets to truly contribute. Until that happens, he's only worth holding on to in long-term Fantasy formats. Teammates Dede Westbrook and Marqise Lee are considered safer Fantasy options.


St. Brown, Equanimeous - GB

St. Brown, Equanimeous

Equanimeous St. Brown figures to be a cinch for a roster spot in Green Bay, but his playing time is up in the air. Confounding as a rookie, St. Brown had more than 55 yards in just two games yet had 15 or more yards on 12 of his 21 receptions, helping him build a quality 15.6-yard receiving average. That paired with his towering height (6-foot-5), he's got some interesting qualities that could net him a role as a deep-threat receiver and understudy to Davante Adams. It's not quite enough to make St. Brown anything more than a late-round sleeper candidate.


McCloud, Ray-Ray - BUF

McCloud, Ray-Ray

Ray-Ray McCloud will compete to be a reserve receiver for the Bills this season, but he has minimal Fantasy value in most formats. Buffalo's top receivers will be John Brown, Cole Beasley, Robert Foster and Zay Jones, so McCLoud will have a hard time making plays in this offense. Keep an eye on his role in training camp, but he should not be drafted in most leagues this year.


Foster, Robert - BUF

Foster, Robert

Robert Foster should be among the top four receivers for the Bills this season, but it's unknown where he'll be on the depth chart heading into training camp. The additions of John Brown and Cole Beasley could push Foster to No. 4 behind Zay Jones as well, or Foster could emerge as the No. 1 target for Josh Allen. We need to see how Buffalo decides to use all of its receivers and where Foster slots in on the depth chart, but he played well to close last season with at least 12 PPR points in three of his final four games. He's worth a late-round pick in all leagues on Draft Day this year.


Coutee, Keke - HOU

Coutee, Keke

Keke Coutee emerged as the Texans' best slot receiver last year and should be right back in there this year. On the field for only seven games as a rookie because of hamstring issues, Coutee regularly was a short-area target for Deshaun Watson (only five deep targets on the year including playoffs). Four of his seven games saw him get at least seven targets, resulting in at least 12 PPR points in each and 17 PPR points in three of them. Coutee has good PPR potential right away, but if injuries force Coutee into a larger role, he could become a weekly Fantasy starter (even in non-PPR formats). Round 9 is not too early to spend on Coutee in full PPR, but wait until at least late Round 10 to get him if catches don't count.


Cain, Deon - IND

Cain, Deon

Deon Cain is aiming for a roster spot, and potentially some decent playing time. The second-year receiver dazzled in training camp before tearing his ACL in his first preseason game. For now, he's someone to hold on to in long-term leagues, but if he has another good camp and preseason, we could see Cain push for meaningful snaps. At that point, he might be worth adding in deeper seasonal leagues.


Kirk, Christian - ARI

Kirk, Christian

At Larry Fitzgerald's age (36 in August), there's an excellent chance Kirk is the No. 1 receiver for the Arizona Cardinals in 2019. This should be a much-improved offense that is forced to throw the ball a lot because of game scripts. Also, that's probably the way Kliff Kingsbury wants to run his offense anyway. There's legitimate 130-target upside with Kirk. Larry Fitzgerald is still there, and he's now joined by both Hakeem Butler and Andy Isabella. With those three and David Johnson in the mix, Kirk could be fighting for Fantasy relevance, much less a No. 1 role.
