Mike Evans, TB

Jameis Winston will be out three games due to his suspension. This will put Evans with back-up QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to get the job done. Evans is a major weapon for the Bucs offense despite a pretty low catch rate of just over 50%. That being said, Evans does get targeted a lot.. His target share will be divided by Desean Jackson, Chris Godwin, Adam Humphries, Justin Watson, and others. His ADP value of 24 put him at the end of round two in a twelve team league. Players just before him like AJ Green hold much more value than Evans.

Josh Gordon, CLE

We have reasons to be excited about Josh return to the Browns and the NFL. His talent is outstanding, any highlight you can watch on him shows elite speed and strength. That said, we can’t forget what took him away from the NFL in the first place, alcoholism and drug use. Gordon has since come out about it and has planned to not just recover from it, but to become a elite NFL talent. His 2017 season was limited to just eighteen receptions for 335 yards, putting his average at 18.6 yards. His ADP of 52 makes him a mid 5th round pick in 12 team leagues. That is way too early for taking a risk on a player that has not played in more than 5 games in a season since 2013.



Chris Hogan, NE

The Patriots offense always seems to have many of WRs with decent-to-good fantasy value every year. This year Hogan could be the one to take the wr depth chart by storm with Julian Edelman’s four game suspension. Chris Hogan’s ADP is 62 putting him in the late 5th to early 6th round in fantasy drafts. Chris Hogan has been in the 30’s for receptions the past three years. That being said Hogan is one of the vets for the Patriots offense in his second year and Brady will be looking for him throughout the season. The first four games could be huge for Hogan’s fantasy outlook.

Corey Davis, TEN

Corey was picked number five in last year’s draft but only played limited amount of time due to a hamstring injury. In his 11 games Corey picked up 34 receptions for a total of 375 yards. His body being 6’3 allows him the chance to be used in the red zone. This could allow for more touchdowns to your fantasy teams having him an upside player in your lineups. The Titans are looking to use him as a weapon of mass destruction. The ADP of 70 puts his draft value for your team at crazy value and a must have player.
