Jaxon Smith-Njigba An Obvious Breakout Candidate

Saturday, June 15, 3:04 PM

Seattle Seahawks second-year wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba is an obvious breakout candidate in his sophomore season despite being in a receiving corps that still has DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett and in an offense that figures to lean more on the running game than new offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb did at the University of Washington. In his first year in the league in 2023, Smith-Njigba had 63 catches for 628 yards and four touchdowns in 17 games. No player stood out more than JSN during spring workouts and minicamp, although Metcalf and Lockett weren't always on the field with him. He was downright dominant at times, though, and head coach Mike Macdonald said "we're expecting big things out of him." The 22-year-old has his fantasy ceiling capped as long as Metcalf and Lockett are healthy, but fantasy managers still shouldn't mind rostering him as a WR4/flex.

Keon Coleman Prepared For Large Role In Rookie Season

Wednesday, July 10, 7:16 PM

Buffalo Bills rookie wide receiver Keon Coleman plans to just "be himself" amid a massive shakeup in the Buffalo pass catching room. This offseason saw the departure of Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis, which has left the Buffalo wide receiver depth chart wide open. The Bills selected Coleman in the first pick in the second round and already have high expectations for him to fill the void that was left in the offseason. The Florida State product said, "All I gotta do is come in, be myself, be who I'm supposed to be ... Because I'm not Gabe, I'm not Stef, I'm just Keon." Over the past few seasons, rookie wide receivers have taken full control over passing offenses like Justin Jefferson, Garrett Wilson, and Amon-Ra St. Brown and Coleman could be next in line. Coleman has high expectations but could be a steal at his current ADP of 122 if he becomes Josh Allen's lead wideout.
