The Dynasty Wide Receiver Manifesto: Part 1 – Metrics

At no point throughout that Receivers career are 10 touches a game just going to fall into their lap. Is David Montgomery good? Does anyone actually know? Does it matter? Don’t be silly OF COURSE it doesn’t matter. The Bears have chosen to endow him with 250 carries next year. He was drafted top 3 in most dynasty rookie drafts last year. He was awful, I mean hot garbage. I bet most owners of David Montgomery if they held on could probably still get a 1st round rookie value of some kind back for him in return. Even if he goes out an average 3 yards a carry next year. He will still likely see a role in 2021.

Cincinnati Bengals: 2020 Team Projections

For those who didn't see this series last year, I try to take a different approach to fantasy projections than your run-of-the-mill rankings.

Therefore, if we want to make accurate projections, we need to look at each coach's scheme and how they like to spread the ball around.
