2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Philadelphia Eagles

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 Philadelphia Eagles.

Quarterbacks

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDFLPoints
Carson Wentz563.6343.8417127.611.362.6262.91.33.1282.53
Missing the final three (regular-season) games, Wentz is ahead of schedule in his ACL recovery and rehab as he was recently cleared for 7-on-7 drills for mini-camp. Before the injury, Wentz threw 33 touchdowns to only seven interceptions in 13 games and trailed only Russell Wilson in fantasy points scored (through Week 14). With good health in 2018, Wentz should perform as a top-five fantasy quarterback.
Nick Foles17.410.31220.90.44.613.80.10.19.46
Despite losing Wentz, the Eagles did not miss a beat when Foles stepped in to lead the team. If Wentz were to miss any time, Foles would immediately become a streaming option.

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDFLPoints
Jay Ajayi204.2908.76.114.6118.30.91.8141.1
On limited regular-season touches (70 carries and 10 receptions in seven games), Ajayi averaged 5.8 yards per carry and 9.1 yards per reception. Ajayi saw a postseason workload bump with 42 carries and six receptions over three playoff games and he's poised for a larger workload heading into 2018 with LeGarrette Blount in Detroit.
Darren Sproles74.2326.5340.9343.60.80.688.61
Sproles missed all but three games last season, but the veteran change-of-pace back finished as fantasy's RB29 in standard-scoring formats in 2016. Obviously better in PPR formats, Sproles has finished as a top-36 fantasy running back in five of the previous six seasons before last year's injury-shortened campaign. NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks wrote in May that "it would not be surprising at all to see Sproles near the top -- if not at the top -- of snaps" (among the team's RBs).

Wide Receivers

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Alshon Jeffery58.1842.57.30000.2127.65
Posting a 57/789/9 line in his debut season with the Eagles, Jeffery's yardage was the lowest since his rookie season, but he was only one score shy of his career high. His 47.5-percent catch rate was disappointing and he exceeded the 75-yard mark in only two regular-season games. With a team-high 120 targets last season, however, Jeffery remains a threat for double-digit touchdowns as the team's No. 1 receiver with a strong chance to improve on his catch and yardage totals.
Nelson Agholor59.1738.85.61.4700.2107.78
In a breakout campaign, Agholor's 2017 numbers (62/768/8) exceeded his production from the previous two season's combined. Agholor finished as a top-25 fantasy receiver in 2017 in both PPR and standard-scoring formats.
Mike Wallace38.7551.53.90000.278.15
Mack Hollins15.2217.41.20000.128.74
Markus Wheaton8.71140.60000.114.8

Tight Ends

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Zach Ertz77.3865.870000.2128.18
Along with Travis Kelce, Ertz is one of just two tight ends to have a minimum of 70 catches and 800 yards over each of the past three seasons. Only nine tight ends have a 70/800 season over the past three years and only four have multiple. Doubling his previous career high in touchdowns (eight in 2017), Ertz goes into 2018 as a top-three tight end with Rob Gronkowski and Kelce.
Dallas Goedert20.8245.42.50000.239.14
With Trey Burton signing a free-agent deal with the Bears, Goedert has an opportunity to make an immediate impact. While rookie tight ends tend to struggle acclimating to the league, the second-round pick has "hasn’t looked like a rookie" and Doug Pederson likes to use plenty of two- and three-TE sets.
Richard Rodgers7.472.50.7000011.45

2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Kansas City Chiefs

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 Kansas City Chiefs.

Quarterbacks

 

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDFLPoints
Patrick Mahomes519.4329.8394720.314.539.4137.91.23.2224.67
Playing well in one start as a rookie, Mahomes enters the 2018 season as the starter with Alex Smith traded to Washington this offseason. With a gunslinger mentality a la Brett Favre, Mahomes may be more prone to turnovers than Smith, but he also possesses the ability to push the ball down the field. Adding Sammy Watkins to the receiving corps, the Chiefs have their most talented group of pass-catchers during the Andy Reid era.
Chad Henne2.61.6180.10.12.11.1001.03

Running Backs

 

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDFLPoints
Kareem Hunt240.71107.27.253.2436.22.70.8212.14
The 2017 rushing champion, Hunt started and finished his rookie season strong with a bit of a slump in the middle. Not only did Hunt rush for 100-plus yards in four of his first five games, but he racked up 100-plus YFS first seven games of his career. Posting 1,782 YFS, 53 receptions and 11 touchdowns as a rookie, Hunt will be a top-six fantasy running back and (late) first-round pick in fantasy drafts this summer.
Spencer Ware62.3264.83.117.8160.20.91.563.5
Ware missed all of last season and there are some questions over whether or not he will be ready for the start of training camp. Even though Ware had 1,368 total yards in 2016, he's not on the re-draft radar given Hunt's historic rookie season.
Charcandrick West31.1121.30.912.982.610.430.99
Damien Williams12.545.60.33.730.30.30.210.79

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Tyreek Hill69.81130.8718.7121.60.70.5173.44
Nearly doubling his receiving yardage to 1,183 in year two, Hill closed the season strong with 21 catches for 457 yards and three touchdowns in four December games. There is the potential to improve upon last year's numbers with Mahomes under center, but the addition of Sammy Watkins (a much more talented WR2) to the receiving corps could diminish his opportunity for a major jump in production.
Sammy Watkins45.3720.35.40000.2104.03
When things are going right, Watkins can be as productive as any receiver in the league. That said, he's now playing for his third team in three years and only had 39/593/8 for the league's highest-scoring offense last year. On a positive note, however, the chemistry between Mahomes and Watkins appears strong with team reporter BJ Kissel writing, "Mahomes to Watkins is becoming a thing."
Chris Conley18.7327.31.10000.139.13
Demarcus Robinson13.8142.10.60000.117.61

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Travis Kelce82.31061.770000.5147.17
Recording back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, Kelce finished 2017 with 83 catches for 1,038 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns. After Rob Gronkowski, Kelce is the clear TE2 -- or perhaps even the TE1(a) given Gronk's durability history.

2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Indianapolis Colts

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 Indianapolis Colts.

Quarterbacks

 

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDFLPoints
Andrew Luck508.7312.9381526.515.853.8274.42.74.5261.64
While there remains some concern with Luck, signs point to him being ready for the start of the 2018 NFL season. If so, it's a major boost to the offense overall even though Jacoby Brissett filled in admirably given the circumstances. In his past three full seasons, Luck has finished as fantasy's QB4 (2013), QB2 (2014) and QB4 (2016). If he can stay healthy for the entire season, there is plenty of profit potential for those willing to roll the dice on Luck.

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDFLPoints
Marlon Mack152.36323.824.9221.611.2111.76
With Frank Gore no longer in the picture, Mack is the favorite for the largest share of the backfield's workload, but Indianapolis drafted running backs Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins in the fourth and fifth rounds, respectively. Mack, who is recovering from shoulder surgery, had 583 YFS, 21 receptions and four touchdowns with an average of 3.8 YPC as a rookie in 2017.
Nyheim Hines71.7315.51.428.72641.40.873.15
Drawing some comparisons to Darren Sproles, Hines is an explosive (4.38 forty) athlete, converted wide receiver and his versatility should allow Frank Reich to move him all over the field.

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
T.Y. Hilton71.111665.30001.2146
Failing to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the first time since his rookie season, the new offense and return of Andrew Luck bodes well for Hilton, who led the NFL with 1,448 receiving yards in 2016. A bounce-back campaign is on the horizon for the speedster, but one concern is the lack of touchdowns -- Hilton has never had more than seven scores in a season.
Chester Rogers38.6501.81.93.612.600.561.84
Ryan Grant35.6420.12.50000.156.81

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Jack Doyle56.9523.55.10001.579.95
Doyle finished second on the team in targets (108) last season and posted career highs with 80 catches and 690 yards last season. By signing Eric Ebron, it's possible that Doyle fails to reach those numbers or perhaps even his 2016 numbers (59/584/5).
Eric Ebron41.74652.90000.263.5
Missing multiple games in his first three seasons, Ebron played a full 16-game slate last year and finished with 53/574/4. Ebron has 161 receptions for 1,822 yards and 10 touchdowns over the past three years combined. The former top-10 pick is still just 25 years old and perhaps the change of scenery will do him good.

2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Denver Broncos

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 Denver Broncos.

Quarterbacks

 

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDFLPoints
Case Keenum575.2373.9414123.613.842.2143.51.31.6251.39
Following a breakout season with the Vikings, Keenum signed a free-agent deal with the Broncos to give them their most stable quarterback situation since Peyton Manning. More than anything, however, the presence of Keenum is a boost to the fantasy value of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, but Keenum is a viable streaming option who should have a handful of solid performances in 2018.

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDFLPoints
Devontae Booker179.8674.35.427.9242.70.62.5122.7
With the Broncos releasing C.J. Anderson this offseason, Booker seems poised to enter the season as the starter, but I'm not sure that he'll end the season as the team's lead back. The Broncos used a third-round pick on Royce Freeman, who could/should overtake Booker at some point during the season.
Royce Freeman169.6720.85.912.291.50.21.6114.63
Booker may enter the season as the lead back, but it's more than possible that Freeman becomes that guy at some point during the season. A four-year starter for the Ducks, the 230-pound back rushed for 5,621 (5.9 YPC) yards and 60 touchdowns in his career while adding 79/814/4 receiving.
De'Angelo Henderson35.5127.80.711.186.60.4028.04

Wide Receivers

 

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Demaryius Thomas93.31231.67.50001.6164.96
DT is coming off his worst season (83/949/5) since breaking out in 2012. Signing Case Keenum may not return Thomas to the days of 90/1,400/10 numbers he posted from 2012 to 2014, but a bounce-back campaign to the tune of 90 catches and 1,200 yards seems reasonable with steadier quarterback play.
Emmanuel Sanders77.51038.53.91.36.500.6126.7
While Sanders missed four games, his 2017 numbers (47/555/2) were nearly half of his 2016 production (79/1,032/5). Before last season, Sanders had three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons and there is a reasonable chance that he approaches that level of production with Keenum under center.
Courtland Sutton37.8480.12.60001.261.21
Highly productive at SMU, Sutton should get opportunities in three-wide sets for the Broncos, but he isn't on the re-draft radar (in standard-sized leagues) barring an injury to either Thomas or Sanders.

2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Dallas Cowboys

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 Dallas Cowboys.

Quarterbacks

 

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDFLPoints
Dak Prescott472.6302.5328522.29.958.8317.55.90267.55
Through his first two NFL seasons, Prescott has finished as fantasy's QB6 and QB9, respectively. Even though Prescott and Dez Bryant never seemed to get on the same page, the Dez-less Cowboys will have one of the league's least-talented group of pass-catchers in 2018. Rushing for 12 touchdowns in two seasons, Prescott's dual-threat abilities help to raise his floor despite a lack of talented pass-catchers, but it's possible he finishes outside the top-10 fantasy quarterbacks for the first time in his young career.
Cooper Rush2.41.214000.52000.76

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDFLPoints
Ezekiel Elliott318.51385.510.242.2426.22.51255.37
The rushing champion as a rookie, Elliott served a six-game suspension in 2017 but led the league in rushing yards per game (98.3) with a larger workload (24.2 carries per game) in his sophomore campaign. With limited weapons in the passing game, Elliott and the Cowboys will face many eight-men fronts, but the former Buckeye should get well north of 300 carries with a chance for another rushing title.
Rod Smith31.9132.4112.21220.6035.04
Bo Scarbrough29.4123.51.53.726.60.10.224.21

Wide Receivers

 

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Terrance Williams40.26073.40000.380.5
With Dez Bryant no longer on the roster, Williams could be viewed as the favorite to lead the team in receiving. Even so, I expect Dak Prescott to spread the ball around enough that none of the team's receivers will finish as a top-36 fantasy option. I could see a bunch of the team's receivers finishing in the range of 400 to 600 yards in 2018.
Allen Hurns41.9553.14.20000.180.31
Two years removed from a 1,031/10 season, Hurns has missed five-plus games in each of the past two seasons with a total of 961 yards and five touchdowns combined over that stretch. While a return to 2015 numbers is unlikely, Hurns should be able to set three-year highs if he's able to stay healthy.
Tavon Austin30.9262.72.241.7271.12.12.575.38
For the most part, Austin has underperformed compared to his lofty draft status (eighth-overall pick in 2013). Back in 2015, Austin had 907 yards from scrimmage (473 receiving and 434 rushing), 52 receptions and 10 total touchdowns including one return score. While I doubt he posts those lofty numbers in Dallas (especially the double-digit touchdowns part), it's possible fantasy owners get the second-best numbers of his career.
Michael Gallup40.2514.640000.374.86
Even though the Cowboys waited until the third round to select Gallup, it's possible that the PFF favorite leads all rookie wide receivers in production given the team's lack of playmakers.
Cole Beasley48.5475.33.90000.370.33
With future HOFer Jason Witten hanging up his cleats, there should be more targets heading the slot receiver's way. In Dak Prescott's rookie season, Beasley had a 75/833/5 line. At a minimum, I'd expect him to post better numbers than last season's 36/314/4.
Noah Brown5.353.50.50000.18.15

2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Cleveland Browns

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 Cleveland Browns.

Quarterbacks

 

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDFLPoints
Tyrod Taylor343.2214.5243714.44.547.6261.82.91.5186.66
Hue Jackson has confirmed that Taylor will be the Week 1 starter, but will Taylor also be the starter in Week 17? The Browns should be better (then again, they can't be much worse), but those incremental gains are unlikely to keep No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield off the field. Based on my projections, I have Taylor slated to start until the team's bye. Due to his rushing production and upgrade in receiving corps, Taylor could be a top-12 fantasy quarterback on a per-game basis for as long as he's the starter.
Baker Mayfield223.1136.115518.75.615.966.80.5193.32
Unless you're in a 2-QB league, Mayfield is not on the re-draft radar. Whenever he becomes the starter, which seems likely to occur at some point, he could be worth a look as a streaming option.

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDFLPoints
Nick Chubb158.8698.75.69.369.80.10.7109.65
Going into the draft, most expected the Browns to take a Chubb. While they passed on his cousin Bradley at No. 4, the Browns selected Nick with the first pick of Round 2. Even though they signed Carlos Hyde to a three-year deal, Chubb could lead the team in carries although it's unclear how the workload will be allocated between Chubb, Hyde and Duke Johnson.
Duke Johnson65.5284.9254.9521.62.21.4103.05
Through three NFL seasons, Johnson has exceeded 50 receptions and 500 receiving yards every year and he set career highs last season with 74/693/3 receiving. With both Carlos Hyde and Nick Chubb replacing the free-agency loss of Isaiah Crowell, Johnson may get even fewer carries. Meanwhile, the addition of slot receiver Jarvis Landry could lead to fewer targets and receptions for the former Hurricane.
Carlos Hyde107.2450.23.831.7193.40.80.890.36
Playing a full 16-game slate for the first time in his four NFL seasons, Hyde set career highs in yards from scrimmage (1,288) and receptions (59) but a career low in yards per carry (3.9). Signing a free-agent deal with the Browns, Hyde may not lead the backfield in touches with the team investing a top-33 pick in Chubb.

Josh Gordon611024.84.90000.2131.48
Since leading the NFL with 1,646 receiving yards in 2013, Gordon has played a total of 10 games -- five in 2014 and five in 2017 -- due to suspension. Gordon has the upside for a top-10 season if he's able to stay on the field for a full season.
Jarvis Landry97.5979.95.11.67.202125.91
The Browns traded for Landry and then signed him to an extension through the 2023 season. Leading the NFL last season with a career-high 112 receptions, Landry finished the season with 987 yards and nine touchdowns (also a career high).
Antonio Callaway22.3289.91.90000.239.99
Selected in the fourth round, Callaway should have been selected higher based on talent and lower based on off-field issues, but he's expected to push Corey Coleman for snaps in three-wide sets.
Corey Coleman18.6243.71.71.2600.134.97
A top-15 pick in 2016, Coleman has underwhelmed in two injury-plagued seasons -- 33/413/3 in 2016 and 23/305/2 in 2017 -- over a total of 19 games played. It wouldn't be a shock if Coleman is dealt before the season starts.

David Njoku40.8505.94.50000.177.39
Playing less than half of the team's offensive snaps as a rookie, Njoku posted a 32/386/4 stat line in 2017. Expected to become a "full-time starter" in 2018, Njoku should be more involved in the passing game in his sophomore campaign.

2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Cincinnati Bengals

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 Cincinnati Bengals.

Quarterbacks

 

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDFLPoints
Andy Dalton511.8313.2353124.112.843.5126.223.5229.66
The Bengals fired OC Ken Zampese after a pair of shutouts and Dalton expects a more "aggressive" offense from Bill Lazor, now that he has a chance to install his offense this offseason. Many of Dalton's numbers were the lowest of his career or since his rookie season -- completion percentage (59.9), Y/A (6.7), YPG (207.5) and number of 300-yard games (one). If Tyler Eifert and John Ross can stay healthy, Dalton could be a high-end QB2. (In fact, Dalton has finished as the QB18 (or better) every season of his career.)

Running Backs

 

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDFLPoints
Joe Mixon223.2982.18.734.9331.60.72.2183.37
Now a "svelte" 225 pounds (compared to 238 last rookie minicamp), Mixon is poised for bigger things in his sophomore campaign. The versatile back averaged just 3.5 yards per carry last season behind one of the league's worst offensive lines, but the trade for Cordy Glenn and first-round selection of Billy Price give the line two big upgrades.
Giovani Bernard98.8419.92.545.6410.41.60.2107.23
Mixon missed some time, but Bernard was highly productive down the stretch. In five December games, Bernard had 507 YFS, averaged 4.75 YPC with 24 receptions and two scores. Currently drafted outside the top-50 running backs (via FFC), Gio offers late-round value as a back that could return flex value.
Mark Walton23.7101.90.67.765.50.20.121.34

Wide Receivers

 

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
A.J. Green76.61122.27.80001.3156.42
After missing three-plus games in two of the previous three seasons, Green played a full 16-game slate and posted a 75/1,078/8 stat line in 2017. Aside from 2016 (career-high 96.4 YPG but six missed games), Green has exceeded the 1,000-yard mark in his other six NFL seasons.
Brandon LaFell42.7516.73.20000.170.67
LaFell had 52 catches for 548 yards and three touchdowns in 2017, but that's probably best-case scenario for 2018. After top-10 pick John Ross did nothing (zero catches) as a rookie, more has to be expected from him in 2018.
John Ross22.8376.22.30000.151.22
Held without a catch in his three NFL games, Ross had one carry for 12 yards and a lost fumble as a rookie. Injuries played a major part to his disappointing season, but he says that he feels the healthiest he's been since college.
Tyler Boyd33.9366.11.50000.245.21
A sprained MCL cost Boyd more than a month last season, but he had 10 of his 22 catches in the final two weeks of the season. That said, the only Bengals wide receiver I'd want to own outside of deep leagues is Green.
Alex Erickson788.90.32.89.800.511.87
Josh Malone6.269.40.6000010.54
Auden Tate1.923.20.200003.52
Cody Core1.6190.100002.5

Tight Ends

 

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Tyler Eifert414925.70000.183.2
Over the past four seasons, Eifert has nearly as many touchdowns (18) as games played (24). Durability is the obvious concern, but if (a massive if) he can stay healthy, upside for double-digit scores is a legitimate possibility.
Tyler Kroft14.5142.11.7000024.41
C.J. Uzomah3.632.80.200004.48
