Big, strong, physical wide receiver. Long arms and long strides allow for him to create leverage and separation consistently. Dynamic route runner and was utilized all over the field at Wisconsin. Not a pass happy scheme, which limited his true potential. Excels on go routes to deep ins to bubble screens. But is extremely dynamic on comeback routes. Controls his body extremely well to decelerate and come back to the ball. Great athleticism and agility, which shows up in his release. Twitchy at the LOS and moves extremely well for his size. No drops on tape at all. Sticky hands and this translates to all levels of the field. Goes up and attacks the ball. Comes down with the ball consistently even with a defender draped over his back. Excellent at the catch point. Contested catch ability is outstanding at all levels of the field. Tight coverage doesn't bother him and he's coming away with the ball. Good after getting the ball in his hands. Smooth and quick. Excellent release at the LOS. Twitchy and able to use his athleticism to create separation. Gains leverage with quick feet and then explodes through once the defender loses a step after flipping his hips. Is consistently pulling away from coverage due to this advantage. Tracks the ball extremely well in the air downfield. QB is not the most accurate, but he always seemed to come down with the ball. Great hand-eye coordination too and has the ability to make circus catches. Good top-end speed too to be able to pull away from defenders after making the catch downfield. Overall, a tough, physical wide receiver who would be excellent in a big slot role. Used all over the formation and stylistically reminds me of Juju Smith Schuster. Would be a prototypical Steelers WR. Great prospect and adds talent to an extremely deep WR class.

Quintez Cephus racks up 54 yards in Week 2 loss

Quintez Cephus caught all three of his targets for 54 yards in the Lions’ 42-21 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Cephus led the team in targets (10) in Week 1, but despite reports that he would be heavily involved in Week 2, those plans did not come to fruition. Cephus is a boom-or-bust option for next week’s meeting with the Cardinals if Kenny Golladay remains out.
