WR Dante Pettis– Over four seasons at Washington, Pettis caught 163 passes for 2,256 yards and 24 TDs. His best season came in 2016 (53/822/15) as a junior. His quickness and open field ability point to much higher upside than Marquise Goodwin with both players lacking the frame to defeat physical corners. Dante will upgrade the punt return game while showing the ability to set up defenders while getting them flatfooted. He won’t beat a CB with his deep speed alone, but his route running and quickness will create big separation on double moves. Pettis has a DeSean Jackson feel while lacking the explosives on the outside. His hands grade well, but he won’t make a huge impact until he adds more bulk and strength. Possible 50 catches for 600 yards with some value in TDs.

WR Jermaine Kearse – In his five seasons in Seattle, Kearse caught 153 passes for 2,109 yards and 11 TDs on 271 targets. His low resume suggested a boring option in 2017. Jermaine ended up setting a career high in catches (65), receiving yards (810), and targets (102) with the Jets. He played well in Week 1 (7/59) and Week 2 (4/64/2). Over the next eight games, Kearse had fewer than ten Fantasy points in six games before having two great games (7/105/1 and 9/157). With Terrelle Pryor added to the roster, Jermaine should drop another notch in the receiving chain in New York unless Robby Anderson is suspended. Tough buy as a starter for a Fantasy owner without better information.

TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins – Health has always been an issue for Seferian-Jenkins in the NFL. He’s missed 26 games over four seasons with his best success coming in 2017 (50/357/3 on 74 targets), but Austin only gained 7.1 yards per catch. His best value in 2017 came over a four-game stretch from Week 3 to Week 6 (23/152/2 on 29 targets). Over his last seven games, he caught 19 of his 35 targets for 156 yards and no TDs. Last season the Jaguars’ TEs caught 43 passes for 505 yards and five TDs on 76 targets. ASJ should be an upgrade, but I don’t see enough of an opportunity to believe in him as starting TE in the season-long games in the Fantasy market. Tough to trust, which points to about 45 catches for 500 yards and some value in TDs with a full season of games.
