“Antonio Brown offered the fourth-most receiving yards in a season ever in 2015, and he did that with Landry Jones and Michael Vick as his quarterback for a quarter of the season.”

The Top 101 Fantasy Players for 2016, Pro Football Focus 

Most fantasy websites have Steelers wideout Antonio Brown ranked as the top player in fantasy football, and they aren’t wrong. Pro Football Focus put out their top 101 player list and Brown led the pack. What was amazing about his 136/1,834/10 season, was that Big Ben was sidelined for a quarter of the season and he had to suffer through Landry Jones and Michael Vick as his starting quarterbacks. Hey Big Ben, stay healthy for the entire 2016 season, please.

“Ameer Abdullah to get ‘every opportunity’ to carry ‘most of the load’ in the Detroit backfield.”

Tim Twentyman, detroitlions.com

Ameer Abdullah was arguably the most over-drafted rookie in fantasy football last year and he will be highly drafted this year, but it will be for a valid reason. The second-year back is heading into training camp as the likely No. 1 back in Detroit and he should be able to continue hisstrong second half, where he averaged 4.7 YPC after Jim Bob Cooter was promoted to offensive coordinator. Abdullah will have to battle with Theo Riddick on passing downs, but the former Cornhusker should get the majority of the carries in year one PC (Post-Calvin).

“Following a disappointing season with the Philadelphia Eagles in a system that didn’t seem to fit Murray’s skills, the running back was asked if he believes Mike Mularkey’s offense in Tennessee is a better fit for him. He answered, ‘I do. It’s strictly downhill and that’s what I’ve been accustomed to my entire life. Nothing against last year or what happened, it just didn’t work out, but I’m very excited about this upcoming season and looking forward to it.”

DeMarco Murray ran behind Dallas’ massive offensive line and pro-style offense in 2014, which led to a career year and a massive contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. However, he busted in Chip Kelly’s spread offense, which forced the Eagles to trade him to Tennessee, where he has fit in well thus far in Mike Mularkey’s offense. Even though he may get a couple of touchdowns taken away from rookie RB Derrick Henry, Murray should be a bounceback candidate in 2016.

“He [Russell Wilson] has made a clear step ahead. His command is all-time. His ability to move defenders with his eyes to set up some things — he’s consistently doing that, almost unconsciously, he’s so clued in. We saw him throw the ball all over the field throughout the offseason and he’s been strong and accurate and really precise about stuff. He has had a great offseason.”

Conor Orr, NFL.com

Russell Wilson really came on at the end of the 2015 season. From week 11 on, Wilson led all NFL QBs in passing touchdowns (24) and passer rating (132.8), and was second in fantasy points (194.04). With Marshawn Lynch retired, the Seahawks might become a pass-first team, which will only improve Wilson’s and Doug Baldwin’s fantasy outlook.

Not Strictly Fantasy:

  • Once again, the Celtics failed to deliver “fireworks” on draft night.
  • Kyle Rudolph believes he’s the best tight end in the NFL… Lol.
  • Matt Ryan got better by looking at himself in a mirror all offseason.
