2014 Fantasy Football: Trading Places, Wide Receivers and Tight Ends
Apr 3, 2014
.There have been a number of roster moves that will have impacts across the fantasy football landscape. Here’s a look at the wide receivers on the move and their impact. Click here for a breakdown on QBs and RBs..Kenny Britt, WR, St. Louis Rams: Britt has the frame to get the job done, but has been dealing with a number of injuries. He’s never reached 800 receiving yards so proceed with caution..Eric Decker, WR, New York Jets: Decker got paid, but life after Peyton is going to be much more difficult. He also doesn’t have Demaryius Thomas to take the pressure away. His prospects took a hit, but he’ll remain a WR2-3..DeSean Jackson, WR, Washington Redskins: DeSean moves within the division. He’ll be the second option behind Pierre Garcon. His numbers are going to take a hit. He should remain a WR2-3 as well..James Jones, WR, Oakland Raiders: Jones may have fewer quality options to compete with in Oakland, but going from Aaron Rodgers to Matt Schaub is a monumental step back. I’d pencil him in as a WR3-4 with upside..Hakeem Nicks, WR, Indianapolis Colts: Nicks is an interesting option. He’s a player to watch in the preseason for signs of explosiveness. He has a lot of upside if he can reclaim it..Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Denver Broncos: Sanders had 740 yards and six touchdowns with the Steelers last year. He stands to improve catching passes from Peyton Manning. He’ll be on my radar for sure..Steve Smith, WR, Baltimore Ravens: Smith will move into a different role with his new team as Torrey Smith will stretch the field. He should surpass last year’s numbers, but his ceiling is probably 2012′s 1,174 yards..Golden Tate, WR, Detroit Lions: I think the move to Detroit will do more for the Lions than producing a bona fide fantasy star. He gives them a legitimate weapon opposite of Calvin Johnson. Tate should get an upgrade from his Seattle days, but he’s probably a WR3 at best..Brandon Myers, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Myers has topped 500 yards with four touchdowns in each of the past two seasons. He’s share looks with Tim Wright. There’s not a lot to see here..
