NFL Wide Receivers on New Teams for the 2018 Season

NFL Wide Receivers on New Teams for the 2018 Football Season

By Loot, NFL Handicapper,

Danny Amendola (Miami Dolphins): Still a dependable and versatile weapon entering his tenth season, Amendola ends a productive 5-season run with the Patriots and comes to Miami to lend a hand. The 32-year old still has some life in his legs and should be an asset with the ‘Fins.

Jaron Brown (Seattle Seahawks): After four so-so seasons with the Cardinals, Brown stepped up in 2017 and became a useful role-WR with Arizona. He looks to continue that with a Seattle team that looks to fill in some voids in their pass-catching corps.

John Brown (Baltimore Ravens): He has seen his production dip precipitously after going for over 1000 yards in 2015 and looks for a fresh start in Baltimore. The 28-year old speedster could thrive in his new setting.

Martavis Bryant (Oakland Raiders): After repeated suspensions and falling into the Steelers’ doghouse last season, Bryant moves to a team in Oakland where players have reinvented themselves before.

Brice Butler (Arizona Cardinals): While never being particularly-consistent or prolific, Butler has developed into a decent role-guy, spending the last three seasons as a complimentary piece in the Dallas aerial game.

Michael Campanaro (Tennessee Titans): The fast receiver/return-man comes to Tennessee after starting his career with four seasons in Baltimore.


Sammie Coates (Houston Texans): He has shown some good signs, but after two seasons with the Steelers and another with Cleveland, he hasn’t quite caught on yet. Maybe a fresh start in Houston will help him find his stride.

Brandin Cooks (Los Angeles Rams): After three straight 1000-yard seasons, including one with the Pats last season, Cooks joins his third team in as many seasons. The Rams are hoping they landed a true number-one receiver to take their offense to the next level.

Michael Crabtree (Baltimore Ravens): Will have a chance to get back to where he was a few years ago. A rough 2017 and the fact that he’s on the wrong side of 30 makes this a big crossroads season in Crabtree’s tenth year in the league.

Bennie Fowler (Chicago Bears): While his career never quite took off in Denver, he had become a pretty useful weapon by last season and looks to catch on in what has become a suddenly-crowded Chicago pass-catching corps.

Taylor Gabriel (Chicago Bears): Up and down in his four NFL seasons, first with Cleveland and then Atlanta, Gabriel looks to settle into a role with the Bears in 2018.

Ryan Grant (Indianapolis Colts): With 45 catches and 573 yards in 2017, Grant had his high-water mark in his 4th season with the Redskins. If Luck returns to form, Grant could have a chance to shine in Indy.

Allen Hurns (Dallas Cowboys): If Hurns can shake the injury-bug that plagued him the last few seasons, perhaps he can find his form in Dallas and get back to what he showed when he burst onto the scene as an exciting young receiver for the Jaguars.

Jeff Janis (Cleveland Browns): After four seasons with the Packers to begin his career, Janis looks to catch on with the Browns and make an impact.

Marcus Johnson (Seattle Seahawks): Sparingly used in his first season with the champion Eagles, Johnson looks to catch on in Seattle.

Jeremy Kerley (Buffalo Bills): In his 8th season and after 6 with the Jets, Kerley stays in the AFC East and looks to lend a hand to the new-look Bills’ aerial approach.

Jarvis Landry (Cleveland Browns): After four seasons as one of the league’s top reception-machines with the Dolphins, Landry comes to Cleveland. He looks to lend some dependability to what could be a good Browns’ aerial-attack.

Cody Latimer (New York Giants): In his fourth season with the Broncos in 2017, Latimer flashed some potential and now looks to find his role with the Giants in 2018.

Brandon Marshall (Seattle Seahawks): After an injury took him out last season and following 12 seasons in the league, it will be interesting to see how the 34-year old Marshall fits into Seattle’s plans in 2017.

Jordan Matthews (New England Patriots): After three seasons in Philly where he hovered near the 1000-mark, he fell flat in Buffalo in 2017. He now looks to come up big in what is really a crossroads season with the Pats in ’18.

Cameron Meredith (New Orleans Saints): An injury kept him out of action last season, just when it seemed his career was poised to take off after a promising 2016 campaign. He now looks to make his mark with Brees in New Orleans.

Donte Moncrief (Jacksonville Jaguars): Losing Andrew Luck seemed to stall the progress of what looked to be a promising career, as Moncrief moves on from Indy to join a revamped Jacksonville passing attack.

Jordy Nelson (Oakland Raiders): Injuries and age may have claimed a once-great receiving talent, but until a rocky 2017, he was playing at a very high level and perhaps he can rediscover his stride with the Raiders.

Cordarrelle Patterson (New England Patriots): Perhaps in his sixth season, the Pats can figure out how to fully utilize Patterson’s speed. The union with the Raiders didn’t really take last season and the dangerous-fast Patterson now looks to make an impact with Brady and the Patriots.

Terrelle Pryor (New York Jets): With over 1000 yards with the Browns in 2016, Pryor was supposed to be a big part of the Redskins’ attack in 2017. Injuries and other issues kept that from happening and he now looks to re-establish his brand with the Jets.

Paul Richardson (Washington Redskins): In his fourth season with Seattle, Richardson seemed to really hit his groove in 2017, settling into a solid number-two option for Russell Wilson. He now looks to shine with Alex Smith in Washington.

Andre Roberts (New York Jets): Formerly a well-utilized receiver when he was on Arizona, Roberts has seen his numbers fall off the last several seasons, though he remains a dangerous return-man. It remains to be seen how he will fit in with the Jets.

Allen Robinson (Chicago Bears): After missing almost all of last season with an injury, Robinson joins a new-look Chicago ball-catching unit. He looks to rediscover the form that saw him go for 1400 yards and 14 touchdowns is 2015.

Russell Shepard (New York Giants): In his 6th season, Shepard has gotten his number called more in recent seasons and looks to carve out a role with the Giants in 2018.

Torrey Smith (Carolina Panthers): His production has fallen off hard from his early work with the Ravens. But he has settled into a role of a nice and still dangerous accompanying piece in a team’s receiving corps.

Willie Snead (Baltimore Ravens): Snead had two promising seasons with the Saints, but seemed to fall into disfavor with the team last season. A fresh start in Baltimore would seem to be a potentially-advantageous spot for the talented ball-catcher.

Ryan Switzer (Oakland Raiders): After some promising moments in his rookie campaign in Dallas, the second-year receiver/return-man looks to take his career to the next level with the new-look Raiders.

Deonte Thompson (Dallas Cowboys): After bouncing around for a few seasons, Thompson seemed to find his rhythm in the second-half of last season with the Bills. He now looks to catch on in Dallas as a role player.

Mike Wallace (Philadelphia Eagles): He might be getting up there coming into his tenth season, but he still has what it takes to contribute heavily to a team. He looks to help replenish a depleted Eagles’ pass-catching department.

Sammy Watkins (Kansas City Chiefs): Another huge talent who hasn’t quite been able to put it together, Watkins joins his third team in as many seasons. With 8 TDs on just 39 catches with the Rams last season, he had his moments, but looks to rediscover the potential he showed in his first few seasons with the Bills.

Markus Wheaton (Philadelphia Eagles): He had some nice games with the Steelers a few seasons ago, but got lost in their receiving mix and never caught on with the Bears last season. Wheaton now looks to find a role with the defending Super Bowl Champions.

Albert Wilson (Miami Dolphins): A low-key kind of pickup that could pay off nicely, Wilson is coming off his best season after four years with the Chiefs. The ‘Fins have some holes to fill in the pass-catching department and Wilson could have a chance to succeed.

Jarius Wright (Carolina Panthers): After six seasons with the Vikings, Wright comes over to the Panthers. He looks to get back to where he was a few years ago, as his numbers have dipped the last few seasons.

Kendall Wright (Minnesota Vikings): Entering his 7th season, Wright has established himself as a dependable complimentary piece at wide receiver. In his only season with the Bears last season, he caught 59 balls. Tired of your credit card not working for sportsbook deposit?
