Opportunity is king in projecting fantasy football production. Here is a look at the overly strong and weak NFL depth charts at each skill position and what potential cut players could quickly find 53-man roster spots elsewhere, continuing with the wide receiver position:
The typical NFL roster keeps six wide receivers
POTENTIAL SHUFFLE PLAYERS
Kenny Britt, Eric Decker: With Cordarrelle Patterson flashing in the preseason and Matthew Slater a special teams stud, Britt could be the odd man out. Decker has not performed well through half the preseason and could see a quick exit.
Jeff Janis, Ricardo Louis, Damion Ratley: The Browns have suddenly become flush at the skill positions over the past 18 months. Damion Ratley is a key variable if he can be valuable for special teams. Janis is a metric marvel prospect but is running out of time to carve an NFL role. Louis was a high-Day 3 draft pick.
Johnny Holton: Likely on the outside looking in for a roster spot, Holton has made some splash plays in the past and sports speed to separate down the field.
Cam Sims: The Washington receiver has made some of the better catches of the preseason, however, is fighting for a final spot.
Packers Wide Receivers: They are loaded at receiver on the back end with all their signings and late draft picks this offseason. Jake Kumerow is rising with Equanimeous St. Brown and DeAngelo Yancey yet to flash much. JMon Moore and Marquez Valdes-Scantling have shown a little more, but the race for the WR4-5-6 spots are relatively wide open with multiple of these names likely not making the final roster.
