Many reasons to like him.

Should be a high volume RB given the talent at QB/WR on that team. Good DST will help him get enough touches, even if the offense sputters out a bunch due to stacked box. TDs could be hard to come by, though.

lol. I was thinking Gurley, not Gordon. Yes, their Oline was pretty bad but they had some injuries and should be better. Could just be marginally better, but we'll see.

Definitely less enamored with Gordon. He'll probably win the #1 job but it's still likely to be a time share with Woody/Oliver taking some 3rd down, situation, and pass pro work away. They don't have a very good D in SD, but that's not always a bad thing. If Gordon looks like he's getting the passing down/long yardage work he's going to jump up boards. But that is the spot where rookies struggle historically, so there has to be some wait and see to it through camp.

Dunlap - Franklin - Watt - Fluker - Barksdale should be a much improved unit over who they trotted out there last year. Run blocking should be a strength.

No homer, I feel like David Johnson is gonna be the steal of this RB class, Ellington is a beast when healthy but he is never healthy and Johnson fits the Cardinals offense so well. With the improved line I could see 1000/500 from him if Ellington goes down...again

Lol? I am a raider fan, not a charger fan... Not even close to being a Wisconsin fan soooooo yeaaaah fenikz get your shit together...but yeah man Johnson could be a steal but there was a ton of depth at rb so anybody could be a steal.

Outside of Cooper, who are the rookie receivers you're targeting this year?

Agolhor is one of those perfect fit picks, if he can pick up the system i'd say he is a safe bet for decent enough numbers

If you can stand the boom/bust style of Torrey Smith, Perriman will do the same and actually has more upside imo

and Funchess is a mix of the 2, perfect fit for Carolina but I would expect him to be a boom/bust guy who is very TD dependent, a worse Benjamin

I have Kelce and Ertz very high on my TE list. I have a feeling that Kelce goes high this year, but Ertz might be there in the middle rounds.

If the buzz about Duke Johnson is true (it should be, he's a stud), he might be another mid to late round guy worth keeping an eye on.

A guy I LOVE this year is John Brown. He fits what Arians likes to do on O to a T. Quite possibly be the steal of the draft.

Also, I really like Ameer Abdullah and TJ Yeldon a lot for rookie RBs.

I'm also a big fan of Amari Cooper this year. I'm probably going to reach on him, but I think he's a safe bet for 85 catches and over 1k yards. The TDs I think will be lacking, though.

Guys I'm very high on, that already been mentionend: John Brown, Ameer Abdullah, Agholor and Kelce.

A guy I like as a late round-ish guy in PPR leagues is Jarvis Landry from Miami. He developed a nice chemistry with Tannehill last year, and his catch to target rate was exceptional. If he can get his ypc above 10 yds, he is a very solid (some would say boring) WR3/flex play. A guy who can fill in during byes, and give you solid production.

Another guy I really lake for PPR leagues is Allen Robinson from Jacksonville.
Big and physical, and he's gotten a lot of rave reviews during OTA and minicamp. Clearly had a strong connection with Bortles last year, before getting injured in week 10.

The offense in Jacksonville is still a work in progress, but if healthy Robinson should see at least 125+ targets this season.

So what are you guys feeling about Demaryius this year, relative to the other high end receivers? Doing some preseason business in my keeper league. My RB are set and I also have Mike Evans, so just looking around at who my first big add could be. Also possibly looking at a top tight end, but that might not be as easy.
