2019 (Projected)PIT 101 1,389 10 0 0 0 198.9  

Outlook: JuJu put an end to anyone who thought his 2017 rookie year was a fluke, as the former USC Trojan finished 6th in the NFL with 111 receptions, 5th in yardage with 1,426, and tacked on 7 touchdowns for good measure. Smith-Schuster has made a living during his first two seasons feasting on single coverage as the defense focused on Antonio Brown. JuJu emerged as a go-to receiver for the Steelers last year, and has had a historical start to his career. He's been as consistent as they come, and now slides into the lead dog role in this passing game with the departure of Brown. His current mid-2nd round ADP reflects this, but there is a big question mark to consider before making JuJu an automatic selection.

He's played exactly one game in the NFL as the focal point of the passing game, and that came in Week 17 last season when Brown was "out with an injury". It didn't go well. He caught only half of his ten targets, and while he did score, he only tallied 37 unexciting yards. The big unanswered question here is whether the third year receiver has the route running discipline to get open against the double coverages once reserved for his temperamental former teammate. He's got a good rapport with Big Ben, but I still believe this offense will spread the ball out more than they have in the past. Young, highly picked receivers James Washington and Dionte Johnson figure to be in the mix, and the Steelers also added veteran Donte Moncrief in the offseason. JuJu's role and two-year production makes him an easy WR1 candidate; I'm just not sure he slots into an automatic replacement for Browns numbers.

2019 (Projected)OAK 94 1,231 9 0 0 0 177.1  

Outlook: Rumors of Antonio Brown's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Despite teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster's breakout season, Brown quietly led the NFL in touchdown receptions with 15 in 2018, including a near-1,300-yard season on 104 receptions. Brown caught over 100 passes for the sixth straight season, extending his own NFL record in that category. Simply put, Brown continues to be a monster producer and it's going to be jarring to see him suiting up for a new team this season as he heads across the country to Oakland.

Brown's huge season has been downplayed by some analysts and it's true that he was not nearly as efficient with his targets as he had been in the past, but he still managed to produce an elite fantasy season. It's also worth considering that Roethlisberger, despite leading the league in passing yards, wasn't particularly accurate with his passes.

The Raiders will almost certainly continue the trend that Brown saw in Pittsburgh where he was peppered with targets nearly every single week. Tyrell Williams is the only other receiver on the team who has any history of substantial production, and even he has failed to reach 70 targets in each of his past two seasons despite playing in all 16 games for the Chargers. Given the Raiders' lack of pass catching options, there's a realistic chance that Brown leads the league in targets. He's never quite achieved 200 targets, but that's not out of the realm of possibility here in 2019.

That massive target floor and ceiling makes Brown an extremely safe option despite the assumed quarterback downgrade from Roethlisberger to Carr. Sure, we know that it's often difficult for a player to produce his typical numbers on a new team, but Brown's not just any player. This is an all-time great player who will continue to be the focal point of his team's passing game and thus is likely being underrated for fantasy purposes even if the rest of his teammates are not particularly good.


 Odell Beckham Jr., CLE (Bye: 7)
10
Height: 5’11”   Weight: 198   DOB: 1992-11-05   Age: 26
College: Louisiana State   Draft: 2014 Round 1 (12) 
SeasonTeamGameRec Yard TDAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G

2019 (Projected)CLE 85 1,188 8 0 0 0 166.8  

Outlook: And now we get to the biggest fantasy quandary in perhaps all of the sport, just how to value OBJ. We've known for years that when Beckham is on the field, he's the most dynamic wide receiver in the league. But this quickly brings us to problem No.1, he's missed 17 games over the past two seasons due to injury, and only once in his 5-year career has he played a full season. The quickness, and "twitch" he plays with means he's a soft tissue injury waiting to happen, and doesn't have the size to be effective when his speed is sapped. The other problem is his mercurial nature. It's impossible to gauge his mental health half the time. Even after getting paid and being the focal point of the offense for years, he was perpetually grouchy on the Giants. Will a move to a franchise mired in a decades long funk work, even though the arrow is pointing up? I said earlier in Mayfield's piece that this Cleveland team is going to explode, one way or the other, and Beckham is going to be a big part of it. He's playing with the most naturally gifted quarterback he's ever had, but there are also a few more mouths to feed in Cleveland than there ever was during his time in New York. Based on talent and previous production alone, he's a shoo-in WR1, but the position is super deep this year, so you'll have a tough time getting real value if you draft him too early.


 Keenan Allen, LAC (Bye: 12)
11
Height: 6’3”   Weight: 210   DOB: 1992-04-27   Age: 27
College: California   Draft: 2013 Round 3 (14) 
SeasonTeamGameRec Yard TDAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G

2019 (Projected)LAC 95 1,213 6 3 22 0 159.5  

Outlook: He's not as flashy as many of the receivers going ahead of him in fantasy drafts, but the only real concern about Keenan Allen is his injury history. However, after playing in all 16 games in back-to-back seasons for the first time in his career, Allen may finally be shutting the doubters up in that regard.

Allen's 199 receptions over the past two seasons are obviously an elite number, along with his nearly 2,600 receiving yards over that time span. Unfortunately, the one area where he's never been an elite producer is in the touchdown department. Allen has scored just six touchdowns in each of his past two seasons and his career high is just eight scores on a season. While it's easy to write him off and say, "well he's just not a touchdown scorer," it's worth noting that statistically, Allen should actually be in line for a bit of a positive regression in the touchdown department.

There is some concern that Allen will see fewer targets in 2019 due to the emergence of wide receiver Mike Williams and the return of Hunter Henry does give Allen some competition that he didn't have in 2018, but the Chargers will also now be without their No.2 wide receiver from last year, Tyrell Williams, who left for Oakland this off season, as well as Antonio Gates who is unsigned as of the writing of this article.

Ultimately, Allen is still the alpha dog in this passing offense and should see his targets hover around the 130 to 150 mark this season, making him a solid, high-floor player. If he's able to get into the end zone even just a couple more times, Allen will almost certainly finish the season again as a borderline WR1.


 A.J. Green, CIN (Bye: 9)
12
Height: 6’4”   Weight: 207   DOB: 1988-07-31   Age: 30

2019 (Projected)CIN 74 1,076 8 0 0 0 155.6  

Outlook: It's a very rare thing to have to scroll so far down the rankings to find A.J. Green's name. One of the most solidly consistent fantasy receivers of the last decade, Green enters his age 30 season at a serious crossroads. He missed seven games due to injury last year, and has had three fairly lackluster seasons in a row now. Entering the final year of his contract, Green is going to need a big year to cash in.

Coming off toe surgery, things sound great for Green this offseason. He looks to be full go for training camp later this month, and seems excited about the energy that a new head coach has brought to the offense. If he's truly over the toe injury that has lingered for years, and if Coach Taylor can indeed breathe some life into the playbook, look for Green to find his rightful place back in the top 10 at his position.
