With plenty of veteran teams switching receivers this offseason, let’s take a look at the fantastic 2021 expectations for Julio Jones, Kenny Golladay, Will Fuller and more in their new landing spots.
Using player characteristics, the adjustment of the attacking pattern and key numbers, as well as Mike Clay’s projections for 2021, here’s how I see the fantastic value of 10 wide receivers who have switched teams this year.
Julio Jones, Tennessee Titans
Clay projections: 78 receptions (117 targets), 1,094 receiving yards, 7 touchdowns
Current ADP: WR14
At 32, Jones has enough vertical juice to stretch defenses, and we know the Titans will be grooming him out of play to throw crosseurs and in-breakers (see video above). Plus, there could be more red points in the red zone for Jones this season with quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Since joining the Titans, 38.1% of Tannehill’s best red zone shots have resulted in touchdowns, via ESPN seeker Kyle Soppe. While we know he will work as a No.2 in Tennessee against AJ Brown, in an attack that relies on the running game, Jones is still a solid target as a mid-level WR2.
