Finding good NFL Fantasy depth for a roster is critical. Here are some names that popped up on radars in week four of preseason.
Jeremy Hill – RB – Cincinnati Bengals
20 carries for 90 yards and six catches for 70
Off-the-field problems affected his stock, but Jeremy Hill has gained buzz because of obvious talent.
Jeff Janis – WR – Green Bay Packers
1 catch for 33 yard TD and a 62-yard kick return
A late round pick who flashed big time at the scouting combine for his speed. Jeff Janis has value on offense and special teams.
Aaron Dobson – WR – New England Patriots
2 catches for 51 yards and TD
He was a frequent target of Tom Brady in 2013 and figure to become one again after nights like this.
Cody Latimer – WR – Denver Broncos
2 catches for 61 yards
A late riser during the draft process, Cody Latimer is an enticing big body receiver who is very good at getting position and going to get the ball.
Lache Seastrunk – RB – Washington Redskins
5 carries for 9 yards and 2 catches for 88 yards and TD
There were rumblings about Lache Seastrunk because of his undeniable speed, which gives Washington something different in the backfield.
Devonta Freeman – RB – Atlanta Falcons
12 carries for 42 yards and TD, 5 catches for 45 yards
Versatility was a big part of what made Devonta Freeman so dangerous at Florida State. Atlanta knows this.
Marqise Lee – WR – Jacksonville Jaguars
1 catch for 57 yards and TD
Rookie or not, Marqise Lee is a playmaker who can pop for a big gain when least expected.
Santonio Holmes – WR – Chicago Bears
1 catch for 32 yards and 1 TD, 1 punt return for 30 yards
The veteran is healthy from his foot injury and his speed and quickness appear back, which is great news for Chicago.
Johnny Manziel – QB – Cleveland Browns
6 completions for 83 yards and TD, 4 carries for 55 yards
Brian Hoyer survived the first assault but Johnny Manziel showed his dual-threat ability again, and his NFL fantasy value of course.
Detroit Lions defense
Shutout, 4 sacks, 3 interceptions
When the reserves are able to pitch a shutout, it pretty much says a team is deep and the Detroit Lions appear that way.
