Impact Wide Receivers In Fantasy Football 2014

Impact Wide Receivers In Fantasy Football 2014

Author: Robert McSain

There was a lot of talk surrounding the 2014 NFL draft thanks in large part to all the wide receivers available. Now that we know who is playing on which teams, it is time to break it down from a fantasy football 2014 standpoint. Even if a player has high potential, they might not necessarily have success early on. Here is a look at the top 3 rookies to consider drafting this fall.

Sammy Watkins

The standout from Clemson was the 1st wide receiver off of the board, and he is probably going to be the 1st off the board as far as fantasy football 2014 is concerned as well. He is a guy who has a chance to have a lot of success with the Buffalo Bills this upcoming season. They moved up in the draft to get him, so obviously they have high expectations. He has a chance to work with a promising quarterback named EJ Manuel, and that should lead to quite a few targets all year long. He is athletic enough to have an impact almost right away at the NFL level.

Mike Evans

When it comes to red zone targets, Evans might be the best option as far as rookies are concerned. He is not only a tall wide receiver, but he is very athletic as well. Some wonder if he is strong enough to have an impact at the NFL level right away, but he should have no problem fitting into the system in Tampa Bay. Josh McCown is about to throw the football a lot as the new quarterback, and Evans could be one of his favorite receivers.

Brandin Cooks

Right now, Cooks is considered to be a borderline pick in fantasy football 2014. Plenty of people will be monitoring his progress from afar, but he has a great chance to have success with the New Orleans Saints. He is a bit undersized, but it seems like it could be a perfect situation for him to play in at the NFL level. If he gets the ball in the open field on a consistent basis, he could be a breakout star.
