2015 Fantasy Football: Wide Receiver Rankings (Part 3)

2 of 6

56.) Anquan Boldin, 49ers – One of my favorite players in the league, but with a suspect QB it’s hard to trust Boldin as a consistent fantasy option. He’ll make the most of his opportunities, but there may not be enough for him to be viable in fantasy.

57.) Tavon Austin, Rams – I drafted him in almost all of my leagues last season based on how ridiculous Austin was in college. Watch this video, he’s an NFL talent. The Rams just need to figure out how use him correctly. With a new QB in Nick Foles and a new OC (Frank Cignetti) there is a chance Austin blows up this year. A high-upside player like Austin makes an ideal end of roster flyer.

58.) Rueben Randle, Giants – The best year of Randle’s three year career (71 | 938 | 3) was lost in the spotlight of Odell Beckham’s breakout season. With the return of Victor Cruz, Randle will lose some targets from last season but should still be a viable fantasy player. With his size (6’2 | 208), Randle gives Eli a big target in the red zone and should score 6-8 TDs but his catch numbers may be low.

59.) Michael Floyd, Cardinals –  I thought last year was going to be a breakout season for Floyd, but the combination of a slow start and then multiple injuries at QB waylaid Floyd’s season. I was fairly optimistic about this year as well, but with a severe hand injury that may keep him out the first few weeks of the season and glowing reports on John Brown during training camp, I’m skeptical that Floyd will have anything more than a sporadic fantasy impact in 2015.

60.) Leonard Hankerson, Falcons – Injuries have kept Hankerson on the sidelines for most of his career, but he’s healthy and in position to be the Falcons WR3. Both of the receivers in front of him on the depth chart (Julio Jones, Roddy White) have been injury-prone lately and if either goes down again, Hankerson could get a chance to be a starting WR for the first time in his career. Even as just the 3rd WR, the Falcons pass enough (3rd most passes in 2014) for Hankerson to have fantasy value. He has the size (6’2 | 211), speed (4.43) and route running ability to be an impact fantasy player, but he will need to stay healthy for the first time in his career.
