Summary

Barnidge exploded in 2015 to the tune of 79 receptions, 1,043 yards, and nine touchdowns. All of those totals surpassed all of the production in first six seasons combined. While usually six years of data should supersede one outlier (even if said outlier is the most recent data point), Barnidge should still be projected to be a productive player in 2016. The factors that led to his 2015 outburst are still in player. First, the opportunity is still there with a less-than-stellar receiving corps in place. Second, the team still has an inexperienced/shaky quarterback who could benefit greatly from a safety valve in the short middle. Add Hue Jackson to the mix, an offensive mind who crafts his schemes to fit the strengths of his players, and Barnidge could once again lead this team in all receiving categories. It's worth noting that Barnidge did undergo sports hernia on June 2. He avoided the PUP list to open camp and is being eased back into the mix. His regular season is not in doubt. (August 6)
