WR Andre Johnson

OutlookStatsGame logsSplitsPlay-by-playLatest news

Outlook: At age 33, Andre Johnson is not getting any younger, but on the same token he is coming off two consecutive seasons with 100+ receptions and is still a viable fantasy option at wide receiver. His quarterback situation makes it difficult to assume the same results are inevitable, but this is the same player who found Pro Bowl success with David Carr and Sage Rosenfels under center. If he can stay healthy and be the go-to option for quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, he'll have a good chance to finish in the Top 20. There was talk about Johnson having mixed feelings about staying with the team during their new rebuilding phase, however that appears to no longer be a concern. Houston was adamant not to trade him and Johnson changed his stance. He is now committed to working with and meshing with Fitzpatrick, who was a student of Harvard and is veteran of the game and quarterback position. Johnson should still be an asset to the team and major contributor similar to years past. His numbers overall may drop off some, due to the new offense and the growing pains associated with that. Second year receiver DeAndre Hopkins also figures to have an increased role that could put a squeeze on Johnson's sheer number or targets.


WR Pierre Garcon

OutlookStatsGame logsSplitsPlay-by-playLatest news

Outlook: Foot injuries turned Pierre Garcon's first season in Washington into a disappointment. He was only able to play for 10 games, and was ineffectual for many of those. Garcon mustered just 44 receptions and 633 yards. Uncertainty surrounded Garcon's foot yet again in the 2013 preseason, but he insisted he would be able to play through the pain. And play through the pain he did; to the tune of an NFL-leading 113 receptions. Garcon was the lone bright spot in an otherwise forgettable offensive attack. This year, with Robert Griffin healthy and Jay Gruden calling the shots, there's every reason to think Garcon's outlook remains bright. The addition of DeSean Jackson assuredly means Garcon is unlikely to match last year's reception total, but the fact that Garcon will no longer be the sole focus of opposing team's top cornerbacks could mean more scoring opportunities. A fair trade off.

WR Victor Cruz

OutlookStatsGame logsSplitsPlay-by-playLatest news

Outlook: Victor Cruz' career is going in the wrong direction. After bursting onto the scene in his second year with a 1,536-yard performance, Cruz overtook Hakeem Nicks as the Giants most valuable receiver. In his third season Cruz caught 86 passes for 1,092 yards and 10 touchdowns. Last year, armed with a new contract, Cruz failed to break 1,000 yards and missed the final two games after a knee scope. Fortunately, things are looking up. Ben McAdoo is bringing his up tempo version of the West Coast offense from Green Bay, and Cruz is slated to play the same role that Randall Cobb held with the Packers. Cruz is one of the league's most dangerous inside (slot) receivers and his precise route-running and reliable hands argue for continued success as long as Eli Manning can recapture his accuracy.


WR Roddy White

OutlookStatsGame logsSplitsPlay-by-playLatest news

Outlook: Roddy White is the Falcons' #2 wideout despite entering the 2014 season at 32 years of age. Unfortunately, White only managed 93 targets for 63/711/3 receiving over parts of 13 games last season - he was hampered for a long stretch of the season with a high ankle sprain and pulled hamstring and didn't really recover top form until late in the year. Over the three seasons prior to 2013, White averaged 102 receptions, 1,345 yards receiving, and 8.3 TDs per season, although the reception numbers did decline from 115 to 100 and then 92 during 2010-2012 as Julio Jones came increasingly to the fore as the Falcons' top threat at wide receiver. Together, White and Jones form one of the most-feared tandems of starting wide receivers in the NFL. In addition, now that legendary tight end Tony Gonzalez is in retirement, White and his compatriots at wide receiver - Jones and Harry Douglas - are likely to see even more opportunities to catch the football during the upcoming NFL season as the wide receivers will inherit some of the 120-130 targets and 80-90 receptions that Gonzalez handled annually while with the Falcons.
