Panthers WR DJ Moore, 49ers WR Dante Pettis, and Broncos WR Courtland Sutton are no-brainer breakout candidates for the 2019 season. I own all three of these players in my dynasty league. Keeper costs increase by 1 round each season so I plan to have these players as part of the core of my team for the foreseeable future. Plenty of other lesser hyped wide outs will take a step forward in 2019 as well.
Bears WR Anthony Miller
33 catches for 7 TD last season. Shoulder problem limited his production in 2018. I own Miller in the previously stated dynasty league and expect big things in 2019. Miller is one of the highest upside skill position players entering the 2019 season. With his skill set and Matt Nagy’s scheme, I fully expect Miller to lead Bears in receiving. Look his last 2 years of college at Memphis 95/1,432/12 as a junior and 96/1,462/10 senior campaign. Bears GM Ryan Pace traded with the Patriots to draft Miller. Owners may want reach up in drafts to acquire Miller. I view him as WR3/4 with huge upside. Bear Down.
Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin
Departures of Adam Humphries and DeSean Jackson could lead to Godwin catching more than the 7 TD of last year. Mike Evans and OJ Howard will more than likely be the top 2 receiving targets in the Bucs passing attack. In a Bruce Arians offense, Godwin as a 3rd wheel still will have value to fantasy owners.
Redskins WR Trey Quinn
Played as a freshman and sophomore at LSU before transferring to SMU. Quinn in his 1 year with SMU caught 114 balls for 1,236 yards and 13 TD. Quinn played in only 3 games for the Redskins as a rookie. Has good hands and runs good routes as a slot receiver. With Case Keenum under center and Jamison Crowder out of town Quinn is a player I will track this offseason. I’m looking to see if Redskins draft other slot receiver types. If not Quinn becomes an interesting flier.
Steelers WR James Washington
2nd Round pick didn’t do much during his rookie season. With Antonio Brown gone, Washington will be able to slide into a sizeable role in the Steelers offense. Put together a highlight reel of chunk plays at Oklahoma State. WR4/5 with upside due to scheme and QB. I will be paying close attention to Steelers preseason games this summer.
