Hunter Renfrow (WR - OAK)
Sat, Sep 7
Player Note on Hunter Renfrow (WR - OAK)
Renfrow may not look like a football player, but he performed at the highest level of college football. Renfrow appeared unlikely to find his way to value in 10- and 12-team leagues, but that could change with the Raiders' decision to cut Antonio Brown. Renfrow is suddenly an interesting bench, but it's still best to take a wait-and-see approach before considering him for your starting lineup.
Tyrell Williams (WR - OAK)
Sat, Sep 7
Player Note on Tyrell Williams (WR - OAK)
Williams always delivered big plays for the Chargers when given a chance, but his targets were sporadic at best. Now he'll slide into a golden opportunity as the Raiders' number one receiver following the team's decision to release Antonio Brown. The big question is whether Derek Carr can connect with Williams downfield the way that Phillip Rivers did. Williams is suddenly a reasonable WR3/flex option for Week 1, although it's probably better to wait and see how he fits in the offense if you have other decent options.
Antonio Brown (WR - FA)
Sat, Sep 7
Player Note on Antonio Brown (WR - FA)
Brown has provided no shortage of drama this preseason, and the pot officially boiled over just prior to Week 1. In the latest chapter of a seemingly endless saga, Brown reportedly threatened and screamed at Raiders GM Mike Mayock during a contentious meeting, prompting the team to fine him and void nearly $30 million in guaranteed money in his contract. That led Brown to request his release from the team, and the Raiders have granted his wish. Don't bet on another team taking on this headache in 2019.
James Washington (WR - PIT)
Wed, Sep 4
Player Note on James Washington (WR - PIT)
Washington has a lot of upside in 2019 if he can manage to overtake Donte Moncrief as the Steelers' number two receiver. In the meantime, he's going to be very boom-or-bust. He could make a big play or two in a likely Week 1 shootout with New England, but there should be better flex options available in standard-sized leagues.
Adam Humphries (WR - TEN)
Wed, Sep 4
Player Note on Adam Humphries (WR - TEN)
Humphries is set to serve as the Titans' possession receiver in 2019. It won't provide as much fantasy intrigue as that role did for him in Tampa Bay, but he's on the deep league flex radar in PPR formats.
John Ross (WR - CIN)
Wed, Sep 4
Player Note on John Ross (WR - CIN)
With AJ Green sidelined for the opening month of the season, the enigmatic Ross has what may be his final chance to deliver on his first-round draft pedigree. The fact he's missed time this preseason doesn't help matters, but Ross should have some opportunities against a Seattle D that isn't what it used to be. It's not impossible to imagine him having a big week, but Ross isn't a player you should have to count on in Week 1 unless you play in a very deep league.
Courtland Sutton (WR - DEN)
Wed, Sep 4
Player Note on Courtland Sutton (WR - DEN)
Sutton may be the Broncos' most talented pass-catcher at this stage of their respective careers, but he'll likely see fewer targets than Emmanuel Sanders and perhaps even DaeSean Hamilton, at least to begin the year. He's a reasonable bench stash but doesn't belong in Week 1 lineups.
Jack Doyle (TE - IND)
Wed, Sep 4
Player Note on Jack Doyle (TE - IND)
Doyle may be the one Colts pass-catcher whose outlook wasn't harmed by Andrew Luck's retirement. Jacoby Brissett likes to target his tight ends and could often look to Doyle over the middle of the field. Doyle's upside is admittedly quite limited, but that was probably true with Luck, too. Consider him a mid-tier TE2.
Noah Fant (TE - DEN)
Wed, Sep 4
Player Note on Noah Fant (TE - DEN)
Fant possesses some sneaky upside as a talented rookie working with a QB in Joe Flacco who likes to target his tight ends. But the track record for rookie tight ends is not good, so Fant belongs on fantasy benches until we see tangible evidence that he's a weekly part of the Broncos' game plan.
Mark Andrews (TE - BAL)
Wed, Sep 4
Player Note on Mark Andrews (TE - BAL)
Andrews had a mini breakout last season, but even then, he wasn't a huge part of the offense and surely benefited from Hayden Hurst missing half the season. With Andrews, Hurst, and Nick Boyle expected to rotate in and out of this run-heavy offense, it's hard to expect Andrews' targets to jump this season. He's best approached as a TE2 to begin the year.
