2017 Fantasy RankingsOverall # 22 · WR # 11 (Tier 2)
WR, Los Angeles Chargers
Height 6'2" Weight 211 DOB 1992-04-27 Age 25
|9||Dez Bryant, DAL||The price of winning and the way they did it, Dez was a supporting cast member in 2016 and is now two seasons removed from the 90-1,300 and double digit touchdown seasons his fantasy owners enjoyed from 2012-2014. Still only 28 and a very talented player, draft him banking on the talent to rise to the top. Plenty can happen to help him produce, whether Ezekiel Elliott gets suspended, isn't as effective, Dak Prescott opens things up more in his second season, or a bit of all three.|
|10||Doug Baldwin, SEA||Baldwin's ridiculous run of games to finish the 2015 season (11 TD Weeks 12-16) wasn't sustainable, but he showed he is no fluke either and clearly has a nice rapport with QB Russell Wilson. Wilson was a bit off last season. A return to expectations for him can only help Baldwin.|
|11||Keenan Allen, LAC||When he plays, this guy is really, really good. Everything you want in your WR1 - a target hog with big play ability and nose for the end zone, plus a QB not afraid to sling the pigskin. The problem is Allen hasn't played a ton missing all but one game last season and half of the 2015 season. Indications are he is healthy now. I would take a chance on him.|
|12||Amari Cooper, OAK||Don't get me wrong, I really like Cooper the player - and who isn't giddy about a competitive Raiders team right now? - but for fantasy he seems a tad overrated. The problem is he doesn't score many red zone touchdowns. Every TD he scored last season was from beyond 30 yards, and he had only two under 20 (from 15, 19 yard) as a rookie. Until he shows he can usurp Michael Crabtree in this category, we should discount Cooper accordingly in the rankings. Tier 3 is more appropriate than Tier 2.|
|13||Demaryius Thomas, DEN||Another talented WR, another porous QB situation. In this one we don't even know which QB is going to get the call at this time, although it is promising former Chargers HC Mike McCoy is the new Broncos OC. As Philip Rivers career shows, McCoy isn't afraid to air it out, which could mean good things for DT.|
