Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 Draft Rankings

Will Fuller V Note

Not only will Fuller finish up his suspension and miss Week 1 this year, but he'll also be returning to the field with a new quarterback, and let's just say that life without Deshaun Watson hasn't been kind to him. In 20 games with non-Watson quarterbacks, Fuller has averaged 6.0 targets, 3.1 receptions, 38.7 yards, and 0.10 touchdowns, which is a far cry from his 6.5 targets, 4.5 receptions, 70.6 yards, and 0.67 touchdowns per game with Watson under center. Can Tua Tagovailoa take a step forward in his career in 2021? Sure, but he's not going to be Watson, and there are suddenly tons of options for him to throw to, which means Fuller is going to have to fight for his target share. There's more risk than you'd like with Fuller, who's also had his fair share of injuries throughout his career. Getting him as a WR4 would be ideal, as you aren't relying on him for production week-in and week-out.

Jaylen Waddle Note

Reunited and it feels so good? Maybe. Waddle will be playing with his college quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa. That certainly helps project him for a quick start to his career, as does the absence of Will Fuller in Week 1 as he serves the remainder of his suspension. Tagovailoa talked about his pass catchers not gaining separation last year, but that shouldn't be an issue with Waddle. Even when Fuller joins the lineup, it might not be a bad thing for Waddle, as he should slide into the slot where he'll be matched up with nickel cornerbacks and safeties. Waddle might be someone who produces quicker than most rookies due to his familiarity with his quarterback.

DeVante Parker Note

This is funny because I was always the guy saying that Parker was undervalued, and he was, but we've reached the point where I'm abandoning that ship. Last year, he played in eight games with Tua Tagovailoa, and in those games, he averaged 7.1 targets, 3.6 receptions, 43.1 yards, and 0.25 touchdowns. That's... not great. And now you add Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle to the offense? Parker is the "big body" wide receiver of the bunch, but he's never been a touchdown scorer, finishing with more than four touchdowns just once in his six-year career. His ADP is way too high.

Preston Williams Note

Williams has shown his talent when he has been on the field, but health - or a lack thereof - has limited him to just 16 games in his two-year career. He underwent surgery on his foot in November and even if he returns to full health, he's likely going to be in merely a depth role with Will Fuller, Jaylen Waddle, and DeVante Parker in front of him. There's little reason to consider him in pretty much any fantasy format this year.

Travis Fulgham Note

Hey, remember that five-week stretch where Fulgham was the No. 1 fantasy football wide receiver? No, I'm not kidding. From Week 4 through Week 8, Fulgham scored 82.0 half PPR points while no other receiver scored more than 74.3 of them. Then, suddenly, the Eagles chose to not involve him in the offense anymore. It was odd, really. The Eagles now clearly have Devonta Smith and Jalen Reagor ahead of him on the depth chart, but if Jalen Hurts can take a step forward in his passing in 2021, we could see Fulgham have a few usable weeks in fantasy as the team's No. 3 receiver.
