As the 2015 NFL season approaches here is a look at what to expect in the NFC West. As you prepare for the season be sure to check out the list of sports betting sites.
Jimmy Graham, Seattle Seahawks - Graham had 889 yards and 10 touchdowns. Over the past four seasons he has averaged 88.8 receptions for 1,099 yards and 11.5 touchdowns. Graham’s value gets bumped down a little going from Drew Brees to Russell Wilson, but he remains his team’s primary threat.
Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks – Lynch could lose some touches near the goal line, but at least it will be Jimmy Graham that he’s yielding them to. Over the past four seasons Beast Mode has averaged 1,612 total yards and 14 touchdowns.
Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks - Wilson should take a step forward thanks to the arrival of Jimmy Graham. In 2014 Wilson threw for 3,475 yards and 20 touchdowns while adding 849 yards and six touchdowns on the ground.
Andre Ellington, Arizona Cardinals – Ellington has averaged 1,039 total yards over the past two years, but has just nine total touchdowns. He’s a solid RB2.
Carlos Hyde, San Francisco 49ers – Hyde should earn the early down and goal line work. He’s a solid RB2 with some upside.
Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers – Kaepernick threw for 3,369 yards and 19 touchdowns while adding 639 yards on the ground. He’s a quality QB2 with upside thanks to his running ability.
Anquan Boldin, San Francisco 49ers – Boldin had 1,062 yards last year. He’ll turn 35, but there is still borderline WR3 status in the tank.
John Brown, Arizona Cardinals – Brown had 696 yards and five touchdowns and has been impressive in offseason workouts. He could easily emerge as a starter.
Reggie Bush, San Francisco 49ers – Bush will get some carries, but most of his damage will come in the passing game. He is a solid PPR flex.
Jared Cook, St. Louis Rams – Cook had 634 yards last year and has averaged 646.8 yards over the past four years. He’s a decent TE2 option.
Vernon Davis, San Francisco 49ers – VD had an awful year, but could bounce back. He’s a TE2 with upside.
Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals – Fitz had 784 yards last year. Fitz is probably a WR3 at this stage of his career.
Michael Floyd, Arizona Cardinals – Floyd had 841 yards and six touchdowns in what was thought of as a disappointing year. Should be a nice value option.
Todd Gurley, St. Louis Rams – Gurley is an amazing talent when healthy. That’s his problem though. He’s a risky RB2.
Tre Mason, St. Louis Rams – Mason had 913 total yards last year and five touchdowns. He’s a solid RB4 with upside should Gurley go down.
Carson Palmer, Arizona Cardinals – Palmer is 35 and coming off a knee injury. He is a decent QB2.
Torrey Smith, San Francisco 49ers – Smith finds a new home in San Francisco. Last year he had 767 yards and 11 touchdowns. Look for his yards to go up and his touchdowns to go down.
Doug Baldwin, Seattle Seahawks – Baldwin caught 66 passes for 825 yards. He’s a WR4 option at best.
Kenny Britt, St. Louis Rams – Britt had 748 yards last year, which is sadly his second highest total in his six seasons. He’s not a viable fantasy option.
Nick Foles, St. Louis Rams – Foles goes to a much worse situation in St. Louis. He’s not worth fantasy consideration.
Brian Quick, St. Louis Rams – Quick has done little to date and I wouldn’t expect him to pick up the pace dramatically this year.
