Latimer only caught two of 4 targets in his rookie season, and with Demaryius Thomas and also Emmanuel Sanders still in the fold, fantasy owners will probably overlook him. Also if girlfriend don’t draft him, though, save Latimer emphasize on her watch list.


Adams is quiet behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, however don’t it is in surprised if he commands a bigger item of the pie in 2015 after his promise rookie season.


Hopkins is more of a potential breakout choose than “sleeper”, however consider he enhanced his capture percentage native 55 to 60 percent, a number that is particularly impressive once you likewise factor in his 15.9 yards every reception.


Gore will certainly be 32 when the season starts, so proceed with caution. V that said, he’s still most likely the finest option ~ above the depth chart. He’ll consist of for shed steps by doing some damage in the happen game.


The Jaguars room quietly putting together an amazing group of attack talent about their second-year signal-caller. Don’t be surprised if Bortles take away a far-reaching step front in 2015.


Kelce is an ext of a “breakout” candidate 보다 pure “sleeper”, however he still needs to be stated here. ~ reeling in 67 that 87 targets in 2014 and sharing snaps with the since departed Anthony Fasano, Kelce numbers to see an increase in consumption as the team’s top tight end and No. 3 attack option.


Johnson emerged as the Vikings’ No. 1 recipient in 2014, which no saying much, admittedly, however he did average 15.3 yards per catch and also should proceed to grow alongside second-year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Manning got locked in during the final quarter that the season, and with a complete season pitching to Odell Beckham Jr., look for him to it is in a sneaky QB1 alternative in 2015.


Decker is a tiny boring in ~ this point, yet the jets passing game -- and also offense in basic -- numbers to be far better than it"s remained in several years. With Brandon Marshall and also Devin smith commanding attention from the secondary, Decker have to warrant plenty of looks indigenous Ryan Fitzpatrick, who for every his warts as a real-life quarterback, generally plays well sufficient for his receivers to have value.


The truth that that plays for the Raiders and also suffered part injuries in 2014 might dampen some of the hype heading into the season, yet his 5.2 yards per carry and also 17 receptions ~ above 23 targets provides him a prime breakout candidate.

Make no mistake, Carlos Hyde is the guy to own in this backfield, however fantasy owner can likewise expect that to it is in pumped complete of helium as the draft approaches. Bush has his warts, however can’t you see him being that annoying vet who won’t give way to the interesting young guy?
