Players Trending Down: Nico Collins, Odell Beckham Jr, Ryan Tannehill (Fantasy Football)

This is one of the more exciting NFL offseasons in recent memory. There have been impactful free agent signings and some huge trades. Those transactions helped some players’ value and hurt others. Let’s highlight some of those fantasy football players that are trending down.

Fantasy Football Players Trending Down

Nico Collins (WR – HOU)

Nico Collins has played second fiddle throughout his career in Houston; first with Brandin Cooks and now with Tank Dell. When Dell went down, he stepped up. From Weeks 12-18, he was the WR4 in PPR. Only CeeDee Lamb and Deebo Samuel averaged more points per game (minimum six games).

Everything was looking great for Collins heading into 2024. Even with Dell back, he should have seen the same production with reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year CJ Stroud at quarterback.

That has changed with Diggs in the mix. The Diggs addition hurts all the receivers, but it could impact Collins more if Diggs establishes himself as the second option behind Dell.

Ryan Tannehill (QB – FA)

We’re a month out of the initial free agency signing and Ryan Tannehill still doesn’t have a team. The fact the Titans made two attempts to draft their next quarterback shows they lost confidence in him long ago.

Tannehill’s inability to throw the ball deep has been a problem; last season, he ranked 18th in deep ball accuracy rating and 24th in deep ball catchable rate.

There is a good chance he will find a team by September, especially when injuries occur during training camp.

Odell Beckham Jr. (WR – FA)

Another veteran who went through free agency without finding a team.

After taking a year off to recover from his second ACL tear, Odell Beckham’s lone season with the Ravens was lackluster.

He finished as the fantasy WR63. The athleticism that made him special was gone. He was 74th in route win rate and 62nd in yards after the catch (YAC).

The market for aging receivers with bad legs is minimal. We may not see him in the league this year.
