2015 Fantasy Football: Wide Receiver Rankings (Part 3)

3 of 6

61.) Cody Latimer, Broncos – The former 2nd round pick only had 2 catches as a rookie, but with the loss of TE Julius Thomas and WR Wes Welker, there are targets available. Latimer has had an impressive stretch in OTAs & training camp and could earn the WR3 job with the Broncos if he beats out veteran Andre Caldwell. Latimer has the size to be a dangerous red zone weapon, reliable hands, and the athleticism to dominate nickle corners if given enough snaps. I wouldn’t start him in week 1, but Latimer could develop into a solid fantasy starter by mid-season.

62.) Chris Matthews, Seahawks – Came out of nowhere in the Super Bowl (4 | 109 | 1) and has gotten some first team snaps during training camp. He’s currently dealing with an AC joint issue, but should be back in plenty of time for week 1 of the regular season. Matthews is an interesting sleeper and a good upside flyer with one of your last few picks.

63.) Tyler Lockett, Seahawks – One of my favorite WRs in this year’s draft who might already be the most talented wide receiver on the Seahawks roster. If Lockett and Russell Wilson can develop an early rapport, then Lockett may end up being Wilson’s go-to WR by mid-season. He’s one of the best route runners in the rookie class, fearless over the middle, and dangerous after the catch. Lockett has already shown his ability as a return man with a kick return TD in his first preseason game.

64.) Breshad Perriman, Ravens – The Ravens lost their most talented WR in Torrey Smith, leaving just ancient Steve Smith Jr and some intriguing but unproven options (Marlon Brown, Kamar Aiken) at the position. Perriman is by far the most talented WR on the roster but is very raw and struggled with drops in college. I could see him connecting with Flacco on a couple of deep balls this season, but Perriman’s drops issue has already surfaced in training camp and it could be another year before Perriman makes a serious fantasy impact.

65.) Dwayne Bowe, Browns – He’s probably the most talented WR on the Browns roster, but that is really not saying much. Bowe is also hurt and has been out since Aug 5th, missing valuable time with his new team. Bowe hasn’t been relevant in fantasy since 2011 and I’m staying away from Bowe and all Browns WRs until maybe the last round of the draft.
