Break out candidates (various positions)



Thought we could throw out a couple of second year guys. Not really sleepers but guys in similar situations.

Alshon Jeffery vs Michael Floyd:
Two big bodied receivers both the number 2 guys in teams with below average Olines, decent qbs, a star number 1 WR on the other side, and coaches who plan to throw a lot. Either of these guys break 65, 1000, or 6-7?

David Wilson vs Lamar Miller: Two highly talked about 2nd year backs. Miller likely has a bit more of an inside track to starting job than Wilson. Both more a finesse back, both have struggled with pass protection, both going in 4th-6th rounds in a lot of drafts. Either back get 1300 total yards, 7-8 total scores?

Throw out some other potential second year guys that could have much bigger second years.

I guess Floyd.

Wilson finishes as a top ten back in PPR.

probably way off here but LaMichael James???

not really a knock on Gore because he's 30 now... the guy just had one of his best seasons yet.

I'm thinking more about Kendall Hunter's recovery from the torn Achilles. He got hurt vs. the Saints in mid November last year. Plus they used a second round pick on James which is higher than what they used on Hunter, a 4th round pick.

Damn near everyone is saying that this year which means I'll be avoiding Wilson.

People keep saying Colby Fleener.

But fellow rookie Dwayne Allen > Fleener.

Pretty much doubled Fleener's receptions, targets, and yardage last year. Yes, Fleener missed a few games but Allen was still targeted more in the games they both played.


And if we are really talking about breakout guys at TE, let's talk Jordan Cameron.

re: Break out candidates (various positions)


I wonder how the switch in coordinators - hiring Luck's former OC at Stanford - changes things on the Colts offensive philosophy.

I don't think we'll see the downfield field throws that Arians called for last year and there will be a heavy emphasis on the short to intermediate routes.

frick



And David Wilson still has Andre Brown stealing all the TDs. And he sucks in pass protection.

quote:

David Wilson, a first-round pick from the 2012 NFL draft, is going to be the New York Giants' starting running back this year. We think. Kind of. But something about this whole situation reminds me of how excited the fantasy football community was about Roy Helu in Washington this time last year. That didn't feel right, and neither does this.

Jeremy Kerley

29 catches first year, 56 catches the second

does that 3rd year WR phenomenon still exist?

Holmes is toast, targets playing catch-up?

re: Break out candidates (various positions)


so if no Wilson, does that make Brown a candidate for over a nice season since they really don't have anyone else?

or are they just a dumpster fire in the run game
