As we continue to move down the free agent list of best fantasy prospects for 2016, we see some familiar faces on our 3rd Team along with some fresh faces.
QB Brock Osweiler: Osweiler showed some potential as the Denver Broncos starter for roughly one month, but now the Broncos must decide to either pay him like a starting QB or allow him to test the free agent market.
HB1 Chris Johnson: Will the Cardinals want to retain CJ2K after his brilliant stretch this season or is the former Titan and Jet a little too long in the tooth to be kept? Either way it appears David Johnson is the main man in Arizona and CJ2K is a great insurance policy.
HB2 Ronnie Hillman: Hillman lacks the size and strength to be considered for a feature back role; however, he thinks he’ll get paid this offseason. Personally, I think Hillman is nothing more than a great change of pace option and should be paid decent to contribute somewhere.
WR1 Rishard Matthews: Matthews became a semi-reliable #2 WR for the Miami Dolphins over the last few years. However, considering they drafted a WR with their first round pick last year, have an established #1 WR already on the roster, the Dolphins may be inclined to let Matthews sign elsewhere for more money.
WR2 Rueben Randle: Randle has always been a highly touted talent for the Giants, but he never really showcased much consistency year-in and year-out in New York. He could remain on Big Blue if the Giants elect to cut Victor Cruz’s contract, but he’s yet to prove that he’s worthy of top two WR status.
TE Coby Fleener: The Colts pass catching tight end will be an intriguing free agent considering many star TEs are getting a little long in the tooth and “Big Wiener” Fleener is a pretty formidable red zone threat.
FLEX Jermaine Kearse: Kearse was highly underrated in Seattle as their second or third option in the passing game, but the player known for his clutch down the field catches expressed interest in chasing the almighty dollar this offseason. Could Kearse become a reliable option in an already potent passing attack like Green Bay or Dallas?
