Allen Robinson (CHI)
Allen Robinson has played with Blake Bortles, Blaine Gabbert, Nick Foles and Mitch Trubisky. Yet, he’s still found a way to stay a fantasy asset over his career. Justin Fields/Andy Dalton are upgrades for the Bears and Robinson will continue to be the WR1 of the team with plenty of target volume in ’21. Robinson has back-to-back 150+ target seasons and should be a PPR beast again this season with 100 rec and 1,200 yards well within his grasp.

Jaylen Waddle (MIA)
Jaylen Waddle is an exciting WR prospect, but his 2021 value may be better suited to best-ball rather than redraft formats. Will Fuller signed a one-year deal and the Dolphins have enough veterans to keep Waddle from breaking out in his rookie season. Also, Tua Tagovailoa has yet to prove he’s a force in the NFL. If Tua comes on strong and Waddle balls out in camp, he could carve out an early role. However, Waddle remains a better dynasty investment at the moment based on his incredible skill set.

Curtis Samuel (WAS)
Joe Brady figured out how to get the best out of Curtis Samuel, and Samuel turned that performance into a free-agent deal with the Washington Football Team. Ryan Fitzpatrick will have to build rapport with his new receivers, but one would consider Samuel’s ’20 numbers as a good baseline expectation with potential for more. But, it would be wise to draft him on the baseline, bot the upside.
