At this point, Colts WR Donte Moncrief 'definitely ahead' of Duron Carter - [Full Article]

CFL WR Duron Carter has generated interest in dynasty leagues since signing with Indianapolis, but general manager Ryan Grigson made it clear he hasn’t done anything yet in the NFL. 2nd year WR Donte Moncrief has already showed fantasy potential as a rookie. Head coach Chuck Pagano said he expects a “big second year” from Moncrief and the “sky is the limit”. In the early offseason, Moncrief is definitely ahead of Carter in the fantasy pecking order, with both obviously behind T.Y. Hilton.

Fantasy Impact: 

Moncrief played at least 50 percent of his team’s snaps in six games as a rookie. In those games, he averaged 3.0 catches for 50 yards and 0.50 touchdowns, but that split includes both huge games (3-134-2 vs. Washington, 7-113-1 vs. Pittsburgh) and disappearing acts (a goose egg vs. Houston, 2-5 vs. Dallas, 3-16 vs. Tennessee), so his production was all over the place. With a year of growth and (potentially) starter’s snaps, Moncrief is a breakout candidate in 2015, provided he can hold off Carter.
