WRs Brown could get bump

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - MINOR LEAGUE -

DAVANTE ADAMS, PACK­ERS BYE: 8

Adams was a mas­sive dis­ap­point­ment in 2015. He turned it around and had a big 2016. Be care­ful ex­pect­ing a full re­peat; the Pack­ers have plenty of op­tions.

uBUST John Ross, Ben­gals: All he does is go deep; he has to bat­tle be­ing a rookie in a crowded pass­ing game.

uSLEEPER Nel­son Agholor, Ea­gles: Two dis­ap­point­ing years over­shadow up­side af­ter a strong sum­mer.

uBREAKOUT Amari Cooper, Raiders: Lack of TDs is only thing keep­ing him from be­ing a house­hold name.

uBIGGEST RISK Mar­tavis Bryant, Steel­ers: A sea­son-long sus­pen­sion looms with any mis­step.

uBEST VALUE Jami­son Crow­der, Red­skins: 100catch cam­paign isn’t un­re­al­is­tic for wide re­ceiver out­side top 30.

been con­sis­tent sea­son to sea­son, so we rec­om­mend be­ing care­ful ex­pect­ing the ar­row to trend up de­spite his age. It’s fun that a down year for Brown is 1,284 yards and 12 touch­downs. This was a prod­uct of hav­ing no com­ple­men­tary re­ceiver. With Mar­tavis Bryant and JuJu SmithSchus­ter, a re­turn to form is within reach. Re­cent health is­sues present a po­ten­tial buy­ing op­por­tu­nity. He re­mains a pre­miere red-zone weapon.

With 2,197 yards and 21 touch­downs over the last two sea­sons, Doug Bald­win is the Sea­hawks’ top wide­out.
