Jakeem Grant 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

WR Dolphins and KR/PR specialist. Had a big 102 yard return TD in week 1 along with 7 targets, 5 catches, 38 yards.

 

He's probably not relevant in most leagues but for those in KR/PR leagues (like mine), he should probably be picked up.

I don't doubt this guy's talent at all. Every time he has had an opportunity he has performed. It may take an injury for him to tuly breakout on to the scene though.

 

4.34 40 yard dash. Tyreek Hill type skill set.

Thanks for this. As a Jakeem Grant owner in a PPR league that includes return yards, I have a newfound appreciation for Grant. 

 

What I'm trying to figure out is if I should start him this week vs the Jets.

Davante Parker is likely to be back Sunday

 

 

I know, but he's their returner so he'll be active. I have to think he'll at least get a few targets.

He was a beast yesterday. What’s his outlook ros

Gadget player who will blow up for 2-3 of these games a season.

I wouldn't trust any MIA WR outside of Stills. He is more likely to put up a 2 catch, 19 yd performance any give week in that offense.

Interesting in return yardage leagues and a nice stash for if/when Amendola gets hurt, but unfortunately once Parker returned his snap counts got cut in half.  Now I understand he had a blow up game, but please be aware he did it on just 3 targets, from NINE (9) snaps, 20%. (Last week without Parker he played on 53% of the snaps, 40% in week 1.)

 

Week 3 breakdown:

Stills played 91% (40/44 snaps)

Parker played 75% (33)

Amendola played 70% (31)

Albert Wilson played 23% (10)

and as stated above

Jakeem Grant played 20% (9)

 

For return yardage leagues, he's an interesting stash, as he's currently averaging 104 return yards a game. (That's an extra 5 points per game in 20:1 leagues)

In a return yardage league, I grabbed him after week 1 for $8 ($100 FAAB budget) and no one bid against me.  This week more people will be looking after seeing his game logs of 21, 9, 26, but I still think that's about the right price, if not less.  I wouldn't bid less than 4 and wouldn't bid over 10, just my opinion.  It really depends on league settings, scoring, and whether the people you play against will see 9 targets in 3 weeks and call him a fluke, or see that he's currently the 14th highest scoring WR in these leagues, and over pay.  No one can gauge your league better than you.

 

Good Luck.

Thanks for the breakdown. He is currently WR5 in my return league and I was wondering if he could be this years return league star.

Should be quite a few KR shots for him this weekend.

Kick Returns give him enough of a floor to be worth starting in my kr/pr league. Hope he gets more involved in the offense though, only 9 snaps is concerning. Still a threat to score any time though.

If Miami doesn't find a way to get this dude the rock every game, they deserve to lose. He is an electric playmaker. I don't see him ever going full Tyreek Hill but he obviously has the speed and elusiveness to draw some poor man's Hill comps. I remember when they said Hill was just a gadget player too so... yeah, I took a dart throw in my dynasty.

It almost astonished me how little they use this guy - until I remember Adam Gase is his coach.  For those interested, go take a look at how he finished last season.  I took a flier on him in my return-yardage league, and every week I wonder why I’m not just starting him every week.  In defiance of the odds, they keep giving him less work and he keeps putting up more points!

 

Let Jakeem work!

He is looking like rookie Tyfreek in PR/KR leagues (.1/10 yards)

Surprised MIA doesn't get this guy more involved. He's sick with the ball and he's quick. Maybe it  will take a few losses in a row for MIA to wake up to see what weapons they're sleeping on.

He does remind me a bit of Hill, but I've never seen Hill shed defenders like that. I guess usually he's already past them and doesn't have to :lol:

So does a 4.1 40 time officially make him the fastest person in history?

 

Had it been an official time?  Probably

One of my favorite players ever. He'll be the fastest player on the field unless Miami is playing KC. Threat to take it to the house every time he touches the ball.

 

I'm a little biased, I've been watching Jakeem since college. He plays with a ton of heart and it's great to see him succeeding at this level.

I had him on my roster but waived him just before last week. Considering his returns which count in my league, he had his second huge day last week leaving me no opportunity to even pick him back up off waivers. I've been kicking myself a bit, but when I waived him I was thinking he would be hardly used. That said, when I was on my roster it encouraged me watching some highlights of his along with a recent video with him talking about his desire to be "great."

Deep sleeper if you can't get amendola, Grant should be on the field for most of the game all it takes is 1 play for him.  He had a couple catches a game only playing 32% of snaps, now he should be close to 75-90 %
