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 should be sidelined at least until the beginning of camp, but his regular season is not in doubt at this point. (June 3)

Browns | Gary Barnidge may be limited (Tue Jul 26, 07:09 PM) - Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (hernia) could be limited for the start of training camp after undergoing hernia surgery in June. He did pass his physical, however.

Our View: Barnidge exploded onto the scene last year, and it will be interesting to see in this new offense how productive he can be. In 2015, Barnidge finished the year as the 3rd-best fantasy TE. This year, he's getting drafted a bit lower than that as fantasy owners are weary of the Browns offense (and QB situation). Barnidge has a current ADP of TE8 (8.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.
