2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL WIDE RECEIVERS I WILL AVOID

While I already shared with your the 2018 fantasy football wide receivers I will target in summer drafts, here are those I will take a pass on.

Mike Evans:  As someone who owned Evans in his very frustrating 2017 campaign, I will certainly take a pass this time around.  While the ability is not in question, Evans now will face the first three games of the season without QB Jameis Winston which will cut down on his big plays and the elevation of the impressive Chris Godwin is also a major threat to his catches.

T.Y. Hilton:  Yes, Andrew Luck is slinging it again but the threat of re-injury or limited strength in his shoulder could send Hilton's numbers crashing to the ground again in 2018.  Add in his always hot-and-cold weekly numbers and Hilton is just too volatile for my taste.

Tyreek Hill:  Always a threat to get injured given his smallish frame, Hill now has a first-year QB in Patrick Mahomes slinging it and he also has to deal with a bunch of competition for catches with the newly-arrived Sammy Watkins and tight end Travis Kelce.

Josh Gordon:  Already missing time for some sort of personal issue, Gordon is one big red flag best to be avoided.

Jarvis Landry:  I spoke yesterday about the potential difficulties Landry will face in his first go-round with the Cleveland Browns and so I won't be looking here in drafts this summer.

Sammy Watkins:  Tired of chasing the annual potential Watkins brings to the table and then subsequently fails to fulfill.

Robby Anderson:  Like with T.Y. Hilton, Anderson is too hit-or-miss for you to depend on.

Sterling Shepard:  I was very disappointed how Shepard failed to come through as the top receiver on the New York Giants last season when everyone else around him fell by the wayside.  That speaks to perhaps having an inability to be such a player.
