A Wide Receiver Value as Easy as A-B
Over the past two seasons, the Bruce Arians-led Tampa Buccaneers have ranked 3rd and 6th in the NFL in pass attempts. In Tom Brady’s inaugural season, they passed an average of 39 times per game. The volume was consistent throughout the season, as the Buccaneers threw nearly the same amount of passes per game in the first eight games without Antonio Brown (38.6) as they did in the final eight games with Brown (39.6). Additionally, their pass rate of 66.5% in neutral game scripts was the fourth highest in the NFL from Weeks 9-17. With Arians and Brady running it back in an attempt to repeat as champions, everything points toward the Buccaneers attempts to hover around 40 per game again in 2021.
Most Reliable Wide Receivers Based on ADP and Performance
Receivers who consistently outperform their ADP are the players who stabilize your fantasy roster week-to-week. Having consistent upside across your roster – especially during bye weeks or when dealing with injuries – is crucial to winning championships.
Stabilize Your Future: The Hidden Value of Mac Jones
If Newton plays poorly, there could be a shift in the offense. Jones could see the field earlier with veterans Nelson Agholor, Kendrick Bourne, Jonnu Smith, and Hunter Henry as his playmakers. However, the most crucial pass-catcher he needs to develop a connection with is 23-year-old N’Keal Harry. With Jones’s accuracy and Harry’s contested catch ability, these two could be a lethal duo for years to come.
