78 1200 8-10. He is a massive physical big play wideout. Not sure how he ranks in PPR due to the low receptions.

The boom or bust guy of fantasy football. I'm struggling with taking him or Cruz.

He plays most of the games and I'm thinking Freeman has a better season. Mike Williams continues to emerge which helps take some defensive attention away.

All my mornings start with the alarm clock
Every dream gets stopped before the end
And with each bit I remember, the more the details run together
And I'm left with a message I don't comprehend
I've lost contact with the great beyond again

His YPC from last year is probably unsustainable but where does he fall in WR rankings. I have seen him as a bottom end WR1 right behind D.Thomas and FItz. He seems to be grouped with guys like Victor Cruz, Cobb, Andre Johnson, and Roddy White. Does't have the best QB play with Freeman but he did put up close to 1400 yards with 8 TD's. His ADP is somewhere in the 40's (round 4-5).

I just drafted him and I don't feel good about it. His entire career he has been a boom or bust player. While I will love him during his great days. It is inevitible that he will finish the season with 1/3 of his games below double digit fake points in PPR. The big games are there though: 6 games last year with over 20pts. But that comes at the cost of 5 games with less than 9pts.

12-team PPR; 4pt passing TDs, 2 Flex Spots and no kicker (HIGH FIVE):

QB: Russell Wilson
RB: Rashad Jennings
RB: BOOM Herron
WR: Demaryius Thomas

WR: TY Hilton
Flex: Jeremy Hill
Flex: Mike Wallace
TE: Super Smash Rob Gronkowski
Def: Stream

Bench:

DeAndre Hopkins, Jerick McKinnon, Bryce Brown, Kyle Rudolph, Juwan Thompson

 

Biggest trade of the year:

Week 3: Sent Matt Asiata, received TY Hilton.

Week 10: Sent Julio Jones + Vereen + Donnell; received Rob Gronkowski and DeAndre Hopkins

I group him the top 8-12 range... I'd go Cruz, Cobb, VJax, and White in no particular order. In a keeper league, I'd go with the first two, otherwise they're all equal in my opinion.

I love him this year. I think he's a pretty decent value in the late 3rd/early 4th because of his season-to-season consistency , durablility, size and production history. He's my WR8 and have been getting him at the 10th pick in the 3rd round in almost all of my mocks.

god i wish we could see him with a consistent QB. what was freeman last game 6-16?

I own him in a few leagues but I hate how inconsistent the bucs are. 1 game he is giving you a huge edge, next game nothing

he is like the CJ from last year in WR form.

final line will look good though.

He's a safe WR2, I would hate to have this guy as my WR1 though. He kind of slowed down toward the end of the season last year, but I think he was nursing a calf injury. Only managed to haul in one touchdown over his final six games.

It's not just the Bucs last year. Even in San Diego during Rivers's and Tomlinson's hayday, he was a boom or bust weekly player. It's who he is.

I do remember last year when I was up against Vincent Jackson while I had a heavy bye week. It was in the fourth quarter and he already had 6 catches and 100+ yards. New Orleans punted and I told my friend, "watch; Vincent Jackson for a 90 yard touchdown." Guess what happened...yeah, Jackson finished with 7 catches 200+ yards and a TD. The next week? 2 catches, 40 yards.

I love VJax this season. He will compete for the overall number 1 WR in fantasy.

Projection: 80 rec, 1400 yards, 12 TD.

I love what you guys are saying about VJax, but he has never had over 72 receptions. Last year's 1384 yards were more than 200 yards than he has ever had. He will be in shootouts with the Saints and Falcons though. Too bad the second Saints game is week 17. Grrr!

You are in the wrong forum for assistant coach help. But, if given the option, I would not want Colston. Too many bust weeks without enough bang weeks. And I like my weeks to be full of bangs.

I had him as my #1 WR last year b/c I went heavy on RB's, but he's definitely boom/bust. Not by season, but by week. One of those guys that wins games by himself sometimes, but has some real terrible games too.

I still like him though and am counting on him. He seems to be forgotten for some reason. I know last year I got him at the end of our auction league for $3. I don't know if people were scared with Freeman or what.

If you can get this guy as your WR2 or your WR1A/B, I think you're ok. But if he's your WR1 you're going to need a damn good WR2 I think because he is definitely boom/bust. Pair him up with a more consistent WR and you're golden.
