Crowell went undrafted in 2014 and spent the first four seasons of his career as Cleveland’s primary early-down and short-yardage back. Crowell has finished top-25 at the position in carries and rushing yards each of the past three seasons.
The Jets revamped their quarterback room on Tuesday by adding both Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown to the mix. McCown has reportedly been assured starting duties, but there’s no doubt the Jets will need to be looking further down the road, so Bridgewater and/or a potential selection in April’s draft will be nipping at the 38-year-old’s heels all season long. Bridgewater was Minnesota’s first-round pick back in 2014. Following promising 2014 and 2015 seasons, he seemingly was on the verge of a third-year breakout prior to suffering a devastating injury in practice that almost cost him his left leg. Bridgewater figures to make some starts this season, but unless the matchup is great, he’s unlikely to Cole Beasley”>http://www.officialcowboyslockerroom.com/elite-cole-beasley-jersey”>Cole Beasley Womens Jersey be one of the best 12 options at the position. He’s only worth holding in dynasty leagues.
The Rams paced the NFL in three-plus wide receiver sets when passing (92 percent), so Watkins was on the field for a hefty 88 percent of the team’s pass plays when active. That wasn’t enough to generate much volume, as he was limited to a career-low 14 percent target share (he averaged 25 percent in Buffalo). The result was 39 receptions on 67 targets for 593 yards and eight touchdowns. The inflated touchdown total allowed Watkins a 41st-place finish in fantasy points, but his 4.2 OTD and six end-zone targets suggest that it was a fluky number.

The first is competition for a large target share in an offense that needs to support Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Kareem Hunt, the latter of whom Reid said he plans to throw to more in 2018 and beyond. Watkins should improve on the 4.5 targets per game that he saw in Los Angeles but likely not to the extent that you’d expect from a player once viewed as a franchise player.
The Chiefs also changed from Alex Smith to Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, which is probably good news for field-stretching Watkins, as Mahomes is less conservative and has a bigger arm. Of course, we knew Smith was a solid, efficient passer, whereas Mahomes has one NFL game under his belt and is a relative unknown. If the 2017 first-round pick proves to be the real deal, Watkins will benefit.
