2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Buffalo Bills

In addition to viewing our 2018 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2018 fantasy football projections for the Buffalo Bills.

Quarterbacks

 

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDFLPoints
A.J. McCarron400.2250.127811410.81843.20.20.4150.36
Signed to a two-year, $10 million contract, McCarron should enter 2018 as the team's starter and may even finish all of 2018 as the starter. That said, it's only a matter of time before the team transitions to Josh Allen, the seventh-overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. With one of the league's least impressive group of pass-catchers, tight end Charles Clay led the Bills in receiving yards (558) and running back LeSean McCoy led the team in targets (77) and receptions (59) in 2017.
Josh Allen63.8374592.92.6940.50.20.329.41
While there are more important attributes in quarterback play, few, if any, quarterbacks in the league have a stronger arm than Allen. That said, he's also the most raw out of the first-round rookie quarterbacks and could end up sitting all of 2018, especially if the Bills unexpectedly challenge for a playoff berth once again.

LeSean McCoy2791143.95.646.7343.21.90.7192.31
Averaging a career-low 4.0 yards per carry, McCoy was a do-it-all option for the Bills last season. Not only did he rush for 1,138 yards and six touchdowns, but he led the team in targets (77) and receptions (59) and was second to only Charles Clay in receiving yards (448). Going into his age-30 season, Shady will remain the focal point of Buffalo's offense.

Kelvin Benjamin56778.45.60000.2111.04
Traded during the season to the Bills, Benjamin finished the full season with 48 receptions, 692 yards and three touchdowns. With only 16/217/1 in his six games with the Bills, Benjamin wasn't 100 percent during that time, but he should lead the team in receiving assuming good health in 2018.
Zay Jones39.6443.52.8000061.15
Following a bizarre offseason incident, Jones will look to improve upon a less-than-mediocre rookie campaign (27/316/2).

Charles Clay50.2547.240000.178.52
Leading the team in receiving yards (558) last season, Clay is the team's most reliable pass-catcher outside of LeSean McCoy, who led the team in targets and receptions. With more than 500 receiving yards in all three of his seasons in Buffalo, Clay is a borderline TE1 for 2018.

Drew Brees539385.4433925.310.233.226.61.71.2264.82
After throwing more than 625 pass attempts in each of the previous seven seasons, Brees threw it only 536 times for 4,334 yards and 23 touchdowns, both of which were lows of his 12 seasons in New Orleans.

Running Backs

 

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDFLPoints
Alvin Kamara187.91024.17.570.7682.33.20.8235.64
Due to efficiency (6.1 YPC and 10.2 Y/R) and 14 touchdowns (eight rushing, five receiving and one return), Kamara finished as a top-four fantasy back (RB3 in PPR) as a rookie. Even though that level of efficiency won't be sustainable, Kamara was slated for a larger workload even before Mark Ingram was suspended for four games. An increase to 250-plus touches (from 201) could mean that Kamara repeats as a top-five fantasy back in 2018.
Mark Ingram190.1912.5841289.10.81.9169.16
Even with rookie Alvin Kamara finishing as fantasy's RB4, Ingram set career highs in 2017 with 1,124 rushing yards, 12 touchdowns, 58 receptions and 416 receiving yards. To a certain degree, Ingram's four-game suspension creates more fantasy appeal. Granted, his full-season production will be lower, but filling his RB2 spot without the burden of bye weeks isn't difficult and there is a discount given the level of strong production from Weeks 5 to 16.

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Michael Thomas91.91121.26.90000.8151.92
With 196 receptions for 2,382 yards and 14 touchdowns through two NFL seasons, Thomas has at least 92 catches and 1,137 yards each season. No player has more receptions through his first two NFL seasons than Thomas.
Cameron Meredith51.3654.13.60001.584.01
While he missed all of last season with a torn ACL, Meredith had 66 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns over 14 games in 2016. Even though he's the WR2/3 on the team behind Thomas, Meredith has some upside in a better offense with a much better quarterback.
Ted Ginn33478.52.16.6330.10.164.15
Finishing as a top-35 fantasy wide receiver, Ginn Jr. nearly set career highs with 53 receptions and 787 yards in his first season with the Saints. Given the team's acquisition of Meredith, duplicating last year's numbers seems unlikely as I expect Meredith to be the team's second-most productive wide receiver.

Watson's last season (2015) in New Orleans was the best from a fantasy perspective (TE8) of his career. Another 74/825/6 season on 110 targets is unlikely for the 37-year-old tight end, but there is a chance he turns into a fringe TE1/TE2 option in his return to the Saints.

2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Arizona Cardinals

In addition to viewing our 2018 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2018 fantasy football projections for the Arizona Cardinals.

Quarterbacks

 

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDFLPoints
Sam Bradford281.81932085115.612.628.40.11.5116.64
Playing for his fourth team in five years, Bradford played just two games last season and durability has obviously been his biggest problem. With the Cardinals trading up to No. 10 for rookie Josh Rosen, it wouldn't be a huge surprise if the team transitions to Rosen following their Week 9 bye, if not sooner.
Josh Rosen270.3168.919609.77.314.745.60.11.5104.76
Some believe Rosen was the best quarterback prospect in the draft (including Rosen himself). Given the durability history of Bradford and the potential of the Cardinals to trail the Rams, Seahawks and 49ers, all of whom have better Super Bowl 52 odds than the Cardinals, a switch to Rosen seems likely to occur at some point within the 2018 season.
Mike Glennon2314.51500.90.60.40.9008.49
One offseason removed from an opportunity to start, it's unlikely Glennon gets an opportunity to make any starts even if Bradford misses time due to injury.

David Johnson287.71251.511.261.6689.93.12.5274.94
Missing all but part of Week 1 last year, Johnson is two seasons removed from 2,118 yards from scrimmage, 80 catches and 20 touchdowns. The ambitious goals he set for himself in 2017 -- 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards -- remain his goals for 2018.
Chase Edmonds58.8258.71.624.3206.61.20.861.73
Arizona's fourth-round selection, Edmonds set Fordham's record for career rushing yards (5,862) as a four-year starter.

Returning for (at least) another season, Fitzgerald has finished as a top-20 fantasy wide receiver in each of the past three seasons and four of the past five. Incredibly consistent, Fitz has 100-plus receptions and 1,000-plus yards in three consecutive seasons. Going into his age-35 season, he's a solid WR2.
Christian Kirk43.1439.63.24.223.100.464.67
Without much competition for wide receiver targets beyond Fitzgerald, Kirk will have a chance to make an immediate impact for his hometown team.

Brice Butler23.2385.12.30000.152.11
Butler has a good combination of size/speed and has averaged 16.1 Y/R over his five-year career. It wouldn't be a surprise if the 28-year-old receiver set career highs, but he's never had more than 21 catches, 317 yards or three touchdowns in his five-year career.

Blake Bortles509.4311.8361721.61355.1325.12.23.5243.79
In an ideal world (according to Doug Marrone), Bortles may not throw a single pass all season. In Marrone's first full season as head coach, however, the Jags were balanced -- 527 pass attempts and 527 rush attempts -- with Bortles throwing it more than 100 times less in 2017 than 2016. Despite five interceptions in the last two regular-season games, Bortles played extremely well down the stretch with multiple passing scores and 300-plus yards in three of the four games through Week 16. Over the past three seasons, Bortles has finished as the QB4 (2015), QB10 (2016) and QB13 (2017) and he has the potential to once again outperform his ADP.

Leonard Fournette338.61371.310.234.6273.310.5230.66
Missing three games as a rookie, Fournette was less than 100 percent for several others but managed to finish as fantasy's RB8 (RB10 in PPR) in Jacksonville's run-first scheme. With the league's best defense and a (historically) mistake-prone quarterback, the former fourth-overall selection has a chance to lead the NFL in carries if he can stay healthy for a full season.
T.J. Yeldon86.6376.71.742.23060.80.981.47
Better in PPR formats, Yeldon had four-plus catches in four of his 10 games played. With good health, he has a chance to provide RB3 value in PPR formats.

Marqise Lee53.8688.63.52.619.500.291.41
Re-signed to a four-year deal, Lee enters the season as the team's top returning wideout. Over an eight-game stretch from Weeks 6 to 14 before getting hurt in Week 15, Lee averaged 5.13 catches for 61.75 yards on 8.25 targets per game with three touchdowns over that span.
Donte Moncrief29.1366.73.50000.257.27
Still only 24 years old (turns 25 in August), Moncrief received a one-year, $9.6 million deal from the Jaguars in free agency. Limited due to injuries (11 missed games over the past two seasons), Moncrief has an impressive combination of size and athleticism.
Dede Westbrook33.2421.62.50000.156.96
As a rookie, Westbrook had 27 catches for 339 yards and a touchdown over seven games. There should be an opportunity for him to improve last year's numbers on a per-game basis in his second season.
Keelan Cole25.5369.82.30000.849.18
A late-season waiver-wire pickup in 2017, Cole delivered several big fantasy performances down the stretch last year.

2018 Fantasy Football Profile: Michael Crabtree, Baltimore Ravens

Forming a 1-2 punch with Amari Cooper for the Oakland Raiders, Michael Crabtree has scored 25 touchdowns over the past three seasons.

Only four players have more during that span -- Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown (31), Seattle's Doug Baldwin (29), Houston's DeAndre Hopkins (28) and New York's Odell Beckham Jr. (26).

MORE: Fantasy Profile for Hopkins teammate Will Fuller

Crabtree also ranks 12th in receptions (232) and 20th in yardage (2,543) as well as ninth in targets (392) over that stretch.

One positive as he joins the Baltimore Ravens, Crabtree goes from being one of the top guys to the top guy. In addition, the team's wide receivers are nearly completely turned over.

Not only did the Ravens sign Crabtree, but they also brought in John Brown and Willie Snead in free agency and drafted UCLA's Jordan Lasley (fourth round) and New Mexico State's Jaleel Scott (fifth).

Both Brown and Snead have had 900-yard campaigns in previous years, but they are each coming off disappointing seasons. Snead had just eight catches for 92 yards in 11 games last season while it's uncertain what the Ravens will get from Brown, who had 21/299/3 over 10 games last season.

With lots of new receivers on the roster, that means that most of the team's top receivers are gone.

All three of the team's leaders in receiving yards -- Mike Wallace (52/748/4), Ben Watson (61/522/4) and Jeremy Maclin (40/440/3) -- are no longer on the roster. Neither is Michael Campanaro (fourth among WRs in yards). Meanwhile, Breshad Perriman (fifth) may not be either if the Ravens decide to move on before paying him a $650,000 roster bonus due early in training camp.

Either way, the top returning wide receiver is Chris Moore (18/248/3 on 38 targets). Nearly 60 percent of the team's 2017 targets are no longer on the roster.

Crabtree missed two games in 2017 and had three-year lows in targets (101) last season. With a less talented "No. 2" receiver in Baltimore than Oakland, I project Crabtree to have close to his 2015/2016 target totals (146/145) in 2018.

Even though the Ravens used the last pick of the first round on former Heisman winner Lamar Jackson, I expect Joe Flacco to start the entire 2018 season. If Flacco and the offense struggles, an in-season switch to a rookie quarterback could lead to even more conservative play calling and more weekly inconsistency out of the passing game overall.

Fantasy Football Strength of Schedule

 

Based on the fantasy points allowed in 2017 of Baltimore's 2018 opponents, Crabtree and the Ravens wide receivers have the 21st-most favorable fantasy football strength of schedule. That said, no team has a more favorable schedule during the fantasy playoffs (Weeks 14 to 16) as Baltimore with matchups against the Chiefs, Buccaneers and Chargers. The Buccaneers (most) or Chiefs (second-most) allowed the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers in 2017.

Fantasy Football Average Draft Position (ADP)

 

Below is a chart of his ADP at Fantasy Football Calculator over the past month:

Fantasy Football ADP for Michael  Crabtree
Based on current average draft position data from FFC, Crabtree is being selected at the end of Round 5 and as the 25th wide receiver off the board, on average. The other wide receivers off the board before/after Crabtree include Jarvis Landry (WR22), Jordy Nelson (WR23), Golden Tate (WR24) and Sammy Watkins (WR26).

Bottom Line

 

Perhaps I'm completely wrong, but Crabtree is 10 spots higher in my current rankings (WR16) than his FantasyPros Expert Consensus Ranking (WR26). In fact, no ranking (other than mine) is higher than WR18 (as of 5/19). Currently drafted as a high-end WR3 in Round 5, Crabtree offers plenty of profit potential for fantasy owners. Ideally I'll secure two stud running backs in the first two to three rounds of fantasy drafts. If so, I'd be more than comfortable if I land Crabtree as my WR2 in Round 5.

Relative value: Undervalued

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDFLPoints
Matt Ryan530344.5410822.311.732.367.80.21.5235.1
Over the past six seasons, Ryan has finished as fantasy's QB7, QB15, QB7, QB17, QB2 and QB15, respectively. So, perhaps he's due to finish as a top-seven fantasy QB this year? In the first season with Steve Sarkisian calling the plays, Ryan threw for 4,095 yards, a seven-year low, and 20 touchdowns, a nine-year low. On a positive note, the addition of Calvin Ridley in the first round gives a boost to an already talented group of pass-catchers. Even though I expect better year-over-year numbers, Ryan is unlikely to bounce back to his 2016 MVP-level production.

Devonta Freeman240.81095.610.843.7380.22.21.2223.18
Based on current ADP from Fantasy Football Calculator, Freeman is the 13th running back off the board in early fantasy drafts. Missing two-plus games last season, Freeman still managed to finish as the RB13 after much better seasons in 2015 (RB1) and 2016 (RB6). Over the past three seasons, only Todd Gurley (4,599), Le'Veon Bell (4,522) and LeSean McCoy (4,396) have more yards from scrimmage than Freeman (4,357) and his 35 touchdowns are tied with Gurley for the most over that stretch.
Tevin Coleman137.6584.85.531.4373.73.10.8145.85
Even if he's the 2 in the team's 1-2 rushing attack, Coleman has finished as a top-24 running back and exceeded 900 yards from scrimmage in each of the past two seasons. The contract-year back has scored 19 total touchdowns since 2016.

Julio Jones88.51469.16.60000.1186.31
With 1,400-plus yards in each of the past four seasons, Jones has a total of 6,317 receiving yards during that four-year span. Only Antonio Brown (6,349) has more and both have more than 1,200 yards more than DeAndre Hopkins (5,063, third). Only Brown has more catches than Jones over that span. Of course, the problem is that Jones has just 23 touchdowns, tied for 21st in the NFL since 2014.
Mohamed Sanu58.4630.74.72.28.400.191.91
In his first two seasons with the Falcons, Sanu posted 59/653/4 and 67/703/5 statistical lines in 2016 and 2017, respectively. Barring an injury to Julio Jones, the first-round selection of Calvin Ridley limits upside above Sanu's recent level of production.
Calvin Ridley39.7484.32.80000.264.83
Old'ish for a rookie (turns 24 in December), Ridley is neither the biggest (6-1, 189) or most-explosive athlete (31-inch vertical and 9-foot-2 broad jump), but he's an excellent route-runner with a chance to be the best rookie wideout in re-draft formats.

Since being drafted 11th overall in 2004, Roethlisberger has played a 16-game season only three times in his career so there's certainly a strong chance that he'll miss a game or two in 2018. With the league's best RB/WR combo in Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown, Roethlisberger has weekly QB1 upside, but he's finished as the QB20, QB13 and QB10 over the past three seasons, respectively.

Le'Veon Bell326.31403.19.878.2617.81.61.2268.09
Franchise tagged for the second time in as many offseasons, Bell is unlikely to report before the end of the preseason if the two sides are unable to reach a long-term deal before the July 16th cutoff. Aside from his six-game 2015 season, the three-down workhorse has 1,200-plus rushing yards, 75-plus receptions and 600-plus receiving yards in three of his past four seasons.

Wide Receivers

 

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Antonio Brown107.11456.610.22.27.701.8204.63
As good and consistent as it gets, Brown has finished as a top-three fantasy wide receiver in four consecutive seasons. Over the past five seasons, Brown has 582 receptions for 7,848 yards and 52 touchdowns. Leading the league by a wide margin in those categories, second-most in those categories are 481 receptions (Demaryius Thomas), 6,897 yards (Julio Jones) and 46 touchdowns (Dez Bryant).
JuJu Smith-Schuster74.41011.86.70000.3140.78
Exceeding expectations in his rookie season, Smith-Schuster had 41 catches for 686 yards and four touchdowns over his final seven regular-season games including three 100-yard games during that span. (He had 17/231/3 in his first seven games.) Even as the offense's third option behind Brown and Le'Veon Bell, Smith-Schuster is poised for a bigger and better second season with Martavis Bryant traded to the Raiders.
James Washington27.6455.42.50000.459.74
With Martavis Bryant traded to the Raiders for a third-round pick, the Steelers used their second-round pick on the Oklahoma State deep threat. Finishing his collegiate career with three consecutive 1,000/10 seasons, Washington averaged 20.28 Y/R over the past three seasons.

Tight Ends

Vance McDonald33.9433.93.10000.261.59
McDonald had just 14 catches for 188 yards in the regular season, but he had both of his 50-yard regular-season games in December and 10/112/0 on a team-high 16 targets in their playoff loss to the Jaguars. With good health, expectations are pointing up for his second season with the Steelers.
Jaylen Samuels20.5221.41.426.8117.90.50.244.93
The Steelers announced Samuels as a running back when they drafted him in the fifth round, but Samuels is a hybrid H-back type of player that can do a variety of things in Pittsburgh's offense. Samuels had 1,000 yards from scrimmage -- 75/593/4 receiving and 78/407/12 rushing -- and 16 touchdowns for the Wolfpack last season.
Jesse James25.2216.72.10000.134.07
James had a nearly identical season in 2017 (43/372/3 on 63 targets) as he had in 2016 (39/338/3 on 60 targets). Towards the end of the season, McDonald was involved more in the passing game and that seems like a trend that will continue into 2018.
