6. Martavis Bryant (PIT)
Don’t get suspended again. That’s all Martavis Bryant has to do, and he will be a steal wherever you take him in your drafts.
However, with Bryant’s recent history in the league, this is far from a sure thing.
When Bryant is on the field he is dynamic. He replaced Mike Wallace as the Steelers deep-ball target and, in his rookie year, looked incredible doing it. In the 2014 and 2015 seasons he averaged over seventeen yards per reception. Every time he caught a pass in his first two seasons, fantasy owners were getting 2.7 fantasy points and that is not including touchdowns.
The reason he isn’t being drafted higher in most fantasy football drafts is because he is a wild card in every extent of the word. Not only is there a chance he gets himself suspended again, but he hasn’t played football since 2015.
Every report from the Steelers players and coaches indicate he is still in great shape and is a changed man.
Who am I to disagree? With Antonio Brown drawing a double team every time he touches the field, Bryant should be one on one most of the time. I’ll take Martavis Bryant’s speed verses any number two conerback in the league.
Just please, don’t get suspended!
