2019 Fantasy Football – PPR Value Wide Receivers

Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Cardinals
Fitzgerald looks like he will stay in the slot this season while his offense gets a big bump in pace and passing attempts. His age is showing for sure, but he will remain a strong target for rookie Kyle Murray over the middle. Arizona also lacks a strong tight end, which in essence is what Fitzgerald was last season. I believe Christian Kirk will surpass the Hall of Famer as the No. 1 receiver this season, but there should be plenty of short passes to help Fitzgerald have a good season, especially in PPR.

Robert Woods, WR, Rams
Cooper Kupp is the slot man when healthy, but he might not be 100 percent this season, whereas Woods is. Woods should be the frontrunner for receptions in L.A. as Kupp’s recovery and Todd Gurley’s scaled-back work should make Woods the go-to for Jared Goff, giving him a shot to be a top-10 PPR receiver.

Curtis Samuel, WR, Panthers
Samuel had 50 targets over his last seven games last season, and now Devin Funchess is gone. Samuel is just behind D.J. Moore on the depth chart, but there’s a good chance they’ll have similar target numbers. Samuel is currently being picked as the 49th wide receiver while Moore is at 23rd. I love Moore this year, but I’d rather have the value of Samuel that late. His PPR numbers might not be like the rest of this group, but he’ll see a good chunk of targets as the true No. 2 this season.

DaeSean Hamilton, WR, Broncos
Over his last four games, Hamilton had 38 targets and 25 receptions. Of course, Emmanuel Sanders was out, but Hamilton proved he can be a reliable target over the middle and should begin the year as Denver’s starting slot receiver. His yards-per-reception numbers were awful, but he was playing through a knee injury at the time. If Sanders isn’t a full-go after Achilles surgery, Hamilton would get a big boost, but even if Sanders is back 100 percent, I expect Hamilton will be a consistent PPR performer in deeper leagues.

Randall Cobb, WR, Cowboys
Cobb may just be done, as injuries have hampered him these last few years, but if not, he should be set up well in Dallas under new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. We’ve already heard good things out of the offseason program regarding Cobb and Dak Prescott getting on the same page early. Cole Beasley is gone, so Cobb is his likely replacement, and a healthy Cobb is better than Beasley. Cobb is a flier at best, so if someone else wants him based on name recognition, let it go, but he could easily be a consistent PPR play if healthy.

Geronimo Allison, WR, Packers
Allison started last season hot before getting injured, and that was with Randall Cobb in play. In those four games before injury, he caught 19-0f-29 targets for 289 yards and two touchdowns. For 2019, we should see a more diverse offense and Allison is currently the favorite for the starting slot job. Davante Adams is still far ahead of the group, but Allison could be set up as the No. 2 receiver in terms of targets. He’s currently the 46th wide receiver off the board in PPR ADP. That’s a spot I’d grab him every time.

Keke Coutee, WR, Texans
Coutee’s draft stock will likely continue to rise the more time he’s healthy and practicing, because when healthy last season, he was a target magnet. Unfortunately, he wasn’t healthy that often. It sounds like he worked on keeping his hamstrings healthy during the offseason, whatever that means, but players don’t go through their careers missing huge chunks of time based on hamstring injuries alone, so I do think he can mitigate the problem and spend more time on the field this season.

Trey Quinn, WR, Redskins
Now that Jamison Crowder is gone, Washington needs a slot receiver, and so far, it’s been Trey Quinn’s job to lose. Jay Gruden says, “Trey Quinn has taken over the inside slot role. He’s confident, he’s quick, he’s got strong hands, he’s physical, [and] he’s tough.” We can’t count on a huge fantasy season from Quinn, but Washington has nobody proven at receiver and the slot appears to be a good spot in Gruden’s offense. Quinn is currently going off the board as the 85th receiver in PPR leagues, so you won’t be risking much if you want to see how he does to start the season.
