Zach Wilson521.33313779.419.5513.0351.1217.21.79235.78
James Morgan36.222.42571.30.943.36.90.0714.71

Zach Wilson: Selected second overall in the 2021 draft, Wilson may be off the redraft radar outside of two-QB leagues, but his arm talent, mobility and improvisational skills could lead to some streaming potential as a rookie. In addition, Wilson may often find himself in a game script-positive situation for his fantasy outlook.


Michael Carter177.7755.24.0926.5232.11.2143.72
Tevin Coleman131.1544.12.8219.4161.50.8101.98
La'Mical Perine44.4179.81860.50.335.83
Ty Johnson33.3144.90.738.870.60.332.13

Michael Carter: Opening camp with the first-team offense, Carter is the 1(a) option in the backfield even if the offense deploys a committee approach this season. The rookie out of UNC averaged 8.0 YPC as a senior and finished his collegiate career with 82 receptions.

Tevin Coleman: Injuries have limited Coleman during his two seasons with the 49ers as he has played only 36% and 6% of the offensive snaps in 2019 and 2020, respectively. That said, he brings with him knowledge of the system and familiarity with the coaches that Robert Saleh brought with him from San Francisco.


Corey Davis62.7839.64.4000141.71
Elijah Moore63.6768.
Jamison Crowder49.5544.
Keelan Cole37.6464.22.300079.02
Denzel Mims17.5252.31.600043.58
Braxton Berrios2.326.20.10004.37

Corey Davis: Davis had a career-best season in 2020 (65/984/5, 15.1 Y/R). Transitioning to a new offense with a new coaching staff and a rookie quarterback, Davis may be the team's WR1, but it will likely be difficult to build upon last year's success.

Elijah Moore: Mostly aligning in the slot at Mississippi, Moore, the 34th-overall pick this year, broke A.J. Brown's single-season reception record last season. It would make sense for the Jets to part ways with Jamison Crowder, but Moore has the potential to excel both inside and out.

Jamison Crowder: Crowder took a massive pay cut and perhaps that eventually leads to a trade given that the Jets used an early second-round pick on Elijah Moore. In his two seasons with the Jets, Crowder has averaged 4.9/54.7/0.43 on 7.54 targets per game.


Chris Herndon27.4302.71.700054.17
Tyler Kroft22.1232.11.300042.06
Ryan Griffin5.350.50.20008.9
Trevon Wesco2.730.30.20005.58

Chris Herndon: On a positive note, Herndon played a full 16-game season in 2020 after missing virtually all of 2019. That said, he was mostly a non-factor with an average receiving line of 1.9/17.9 and a total of three touchdowns.
