These are players that I believe will have a drop in production from last year and are questionable targets for RedraftHero.com throughout the season, be hesitant on adding them to your watchlist unless their salaries drop considerably.
The Tennessee Titans (2-14 record and forth in the AFC South) were tied for the league’s worst record with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They struggled at the quarterback position, and saw some of their playmakers produce good numbers. The defense struggled to stop opposing offenses, which put pressure on their offense to come from behind in most games. With just two wins to show for the entire 2014 season, the Titans had the second overall pick in this year’s draft, where they chose to go with former Oregon Duck Marcus Mariota. Now, headed into the 2015 season they have a new quarterback, some key free agent additions on the defensive side of the ball the Titans looks to build around Mariota.
In Week 1 Bridgewater is going against the 49ers who have had a great defense for about the last 7-8 years, but I think a regression is in store here. They took a big hit now with the losses of Chris Borland, Patrick Willis, Justin Smith, Perrish Cox, Chris Culliver and Ray MacDonald all on defense, they are due for regression.
Rodgers is at the top of the list for the top fantasy quarterback of 2015. In 2014, Rodgers had a three-headed monster at wide receiver that featured Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams. With the trio having another year with Rodgers under their belt there is no reason to doubt the dangerous fantasy potential each week.
For NFL fantasy enthusiasts: Tyrann Mathieu was highly touted out of college before he had some drug issues and missed the entire 2012 season. Before his drug issues at LSU, Mathieu was a turnover machine and a Heisman trophy runner up. Then in his first season in Arizona Mathieu came out and showed scouts what they were missing after he fell to the third round in the draft. When he’s on the field he’s been effective, but he needs to put together a healthy season. Mathieu’s has produced turnovers, hard-nosed hitting, and makes smart plays all over the field. Now, healthy Mathieu is looking to finally breakout and produce for the Cardinals on a high level.
