2. Drew Brees (QB-NO)
It surprises me just how high people have Brees ranked following the departure of All-Pro Jimmy Graham and arrival of C.J. Spiller. That was a massive sign that the Saints are trying to switch to a run heavy offense, and rightfully so.
Mark Ingram and Spiller will be one of the best running back duos in the NFL this season, and the aging Brees is stuck throwing to a mediocre set of receivers that features a washed up Marques Colston ands young but inexperienced Brandin Cooks. Brees is not a top five quarterback this year, and may not even crack top ten.
1. DeSean Jackson (WR-WAS)
Jackson hauled in over 1,100 yards yet again last season, but don’t expect that streak to continue. D-Jax will have a hard time replicating his 2014 fantasy production under head coach Jay Gruden, who wants to focus more on Alfred Morris and the run game this season, and get Pierre Garçon a little more involved in the passing game.
Speaking of passing, the quarterback situation in Washington is nothing short of disastrous entering this season with injury prone Robert Griffin III at the helm, and inexperienced backup Kirk Cousins just makes too many mistakes for me to trust him this season. Unlike most sources, who have Jackson ranked as a top 20 wide receiver, I wouldn’t expect him to break top 40 production.
