Position Rankings
Tier 3
13Demaryius Thomas, DENAnother 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.
14T.Y. Hilton, INDA lot of fantasy experts loved Donte Moncrief this time last year, expecting him to take over as primary target on the Colts. At 5'9", 180 lbs. and not a big touchdown guy, there are always going to be people looking to replace you. I looked it as, "who does Andrew Luck like and trust?" Clearly Hilton, who had a career year in 2016. The problem right now is Luck isn't throwing the ball yet, rehabbing from off-season shoulder surgery. Continue to monitor news for Luck to assess the impact on him and those directly effected.
15DeAndre Hopkins, HOUNo WR is completely QB-proof, and this pick soured pretty quickly last season. Problem: the Texans still have a very sketchy QB situation, regardless of how much you believe in rookie DeShaun Watson longer term. Everything went right in 2015 and not much in 2016. Halfway between the two extremes seems about the right expectation. Hope for the best based on his talent.
16Allen Robinson, JACExactly the same number of targets at 151. That produced 80-1,400-14 in 2015 and bottomed out at 73-883-6 in 2016, a 100 fantasy point decline (standard scoring). A new offense including improved running game can only help, but we don't want to get too excited out of the gate.
17Terrelle Pryor, WASUsually if a player changes offensive skill positions at the NFL level you can write them off for fantasy. A former QB, Pryor is an exception to that. He is clearly dedicated to his craft and was very much fantasy relevant on the Browns (not easy to do) to the tune of 77-1,007-4 plus a rushing TD. He moves to a much better situation with the Redskins and expecting a modest bump to those numbers is not unreasonable.
