37. Nelson Agholor, Philadelphia Eagles: While this rookie WR class may not have quite the impact of the one from last season, there are certainly some talented rookies at the position who have a chance to be huge fantasy difference makers. The Eagles specifically targeted Agholor in the later stages of the first round. Obviously, Chip Kelly has a plan for him, and that could mean huge numbers as soon as this season. A little bit of unknown here, but if Kelly puts a lot of stock into a player, it is smart to take notice.

36. Kevin White, Chicago Bears: Taking over for the departed Brandon Marshall, rookie Kevin White has a chance to be something special opposite of Alshon Jeffery in the Bears’ offense. White has an incredible combination of size, speed and raw athleticism that gives him a near limitless ceiling in the NFL. The Bears’ offense is probably going to be inconsistent, and there are a fair amount of mouths to feed, but White’s upside is too exciting to ignore.

35. Charles Johnson, MIN: Emerging from relative obscurity to the tune of 31 receptions for 475 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games (six starts) last season, Johnson is a promising player going forward for the Vikings. His ideal frame (6-foot-2, 217 pounds) coupled with impressive speed and athleticism gives Johnson sizable upside. He is primed to become Bridgewater’s number one target in the passing game. If nothing else, that should count for successful PPR totals.

34. Brandon LaFell, New England Patriots: LaFell is the primary deep threat in the Patriots’ offense, which is one of the most productive in the entire NFL. Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman are the more primary targets, but LaFell proved his worth last season, and will undoubtedly continue to be a major part of the offense. He also has a knack for the endzone, which is obviously ideal for fantasy football.
