Quarterback Running Back Wide Receiver Tight End Kicker Defense

  • 121 Isaiah Crowell, RB, Jets.

    I like Crowell's ability and the Jets like to use their running backs, so I'm cautiously optimistic that he's landed in a good spot to help him see more work.

  • 122 Blake Bortles, QB, Jaguars.

    Bortles can have good fantasy days, but he won't be asked to do that much with the defense and running game being the strengths of this offense. His running ability and the fact that he's quarterbacking a winning team means he should be more consistent than his worst games seem to foretell.

  • 123 Sterling Shepard, WR, Giants.

    I like Shepard's ability, but the return of Odell Beckham Jr. and the addition of Saquon Barkley, who should get a big chunk of targets, will likely lower Shepard's upside.

  • 124 Michael Gallup, WR, Cowboys.

    Gallup landed in a good spot for work, as Dallas is weak at wide receiver. There's even a decent shot that he earns the most targets on the team, which may not make him a star, but should make him a viable fantasy player.

  • 125 Jack Doyle, TE, Colts.

    Doyle is solid, and the Colts aren't inundated with wide receiver talent after T.Y. Hilton, but the acquisition of Eric Ebron is a gut punch for Doyle backers. The good news is that the Colts should run 2TE sets, so both Ebron and Doyle will have some value.

  • 126 Nelson Agholor, WR, Eagles.

    Eagles players other than Carson Wentz are tough to feel 100 percent confident about because this offense has so many moving parts and players to target, but Agholor turned things around last season and I expect he's going to remain an integral part of this offense.

  • 127 Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Buccaneers.

    The Jaguars have a ton of receivers, and many of them are good and/or have that potential, but I expect this offense to use the tight end more now that they have a good one. He should become a strong red-zone presence.

  • 128 Tyler Eifert, TE, Bengals.

    Eifert, like Jordan Reed, is a top fantasy tight end when healthy, but there has been very little health.

  • 129 Corey Clement, RB, Eagles.

    Clement looks like the real deal, and with enough work, he could shine, especially with the Eagles' offense. It doesn't look like Darren Sproles will be a detriment to his touches, so I'm on board with Clement in most leagues.

  • 130 Duke Johnson, RB, Browns.

    Johnson will likely continue to see the same type of workload he saw last season now that Carlos Hyde has joined the team and Isaiah Crowell has headed to the Jets.

  • 131 Rishard Matthews, WR, Titans.

    Matthews is a solid fantasy player who often gets overlooked. He's still the No. 1 receiver and should be able to hold that designation another season even if Corey Davis shows improvement.

  • 132 Christian Kirk, WR, Cardinals.

    Kirk should move into the starting lineup quickly and could be a waiver-wire pickup sooner than later.

  • 133 Jared Goff, QB, Rams.

    Goff showed good consistency and a nice ceiling against bad pass defenses in 2017. I think he will be a strong fantasy player in his second season with Sean McVay, and I have no qualms with him as a later-round starting fantasy quarterback.

  • 134 Eli Manning, QB, Giants.

    Manning has some amazing offensive skill position players to get the ball to, but he hasn't shown much offensive skill himself in a long time. But it will be nearly impossible for Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr. to have top-five seasons and Manning not to finish as a top-15 quarterback. It's a conundrum, but if you think the Giants' offense gets a big boost from those two, you can't be too down on Manning.

  • 135 Eric Ebron, TE, Colts.

    Luck to Ebron sure sounds good, but we have to factor in Jack Doyle and a whole host of variables that this Colts team probably doesn't have its head wrapped around just yet. The good news is that they will likely play with two tight ends and both have fantasy value if Andrew Luck is healthy.
