In this podcast we discuss:

 

Cole Beasley, WR, Dallas Cowboys

Beasley surprised many with his PPR fantasy point surge and became a target favorite of Dak Prescott. There is a strong indication that this trend will continue with the Cowboys utilizing possession receiving to compliment the running of Ezekiel Elliott.

Taylor Gabriel, WR, Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons turned Taylor Gabriel into a strong weapon in their offense in 2016. His targets were only the 50+ range, but he made the most them – scoring more touchdowns than Julio Jones. We expect his usage to grow in 2017.

Robert Woods, WR, Los Angeles Rams

With a new coach and a depth chart seating at the top, Robert Woods may surprise in 2017. The offense is set to grow around Todd Gurley, helping to open up the passing game as it did for Kenny Britt. Alex makes a compelling case for this arguably overlooked player.

Ted Ginn, WR, New Orleans Saints

Once again Ted Ginn enters the discussion as solid prospect. With the departure of Brandin Cooks, Ginn has upside as a deep threat and should handle a fair share of those 100+ targets that Cooks leaves on the table in New Orleans. With Drew Brees specializing in a high powered passing game, Ginn gains a strong upgrade of his passer from Cam Newton.

Coby Fleener, TE, New Orleans Saints

Another member of the Saints also pointing up is Coby Fleener. With a season of acclimating to the new offense, he, like Ginn, looks to increase his usage on the departure of Brandin Cooks. For those waiting on a tight end, Fleener is going at a bargain level beyond 150 ADP.

Joe Williams, RB, San Francisco 49ers

Kyle Shanahan as coach and offensive coordinator turned around some poor performing backfields in his career. With the uncertainty surrounding Carlos Hyde this off-season, Williams is an essential handcuff. His standalone fantasy value may be underestimated; making him a potentially strong stash.

Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Rodgers demonstrated in 2016 his ability to handle heavy workloads with effectiveness. Doug Martin and his three-game suspension once again opens the door for Rodgers to shine in 2017 – at least in the early part of the season. Martin may have his hands full in avoiding a timeshare on his return. With the rest of the Bucs backfield well outside fantasy relevance, Rodgers is solidly placed for another rise in fantasy value.

All this and much more on The Fantasy Edge…
