Pats Beat: Team's WR5 hardest spot to fill

Tuesday, August 2, 2016, 12:23pm

MassLive.com - [Full Article]

The hardest spot to fill on the roster? The No. 5 receiver position behind Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Chris Hogan and rookie Malcolm Mitchell.

A case can be made for Keshawn Martin (who signed a contract extension in January), Aaron Dobson (who is healthy), Chris Harper or DeAndre Carter. Or even Nate Washington.

Fantasy Impact:

The author didn't really say his opinion on who could emerge in that spot, but did say Carter and Harper can be placed on the practice squad while Dobson and Martin cannot. The author did say Carter is in the Edelman/Amendola mold which could provide some insurance since both are currently hurt.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
Keshawn Martin beat out Brandon Lafell on the depth chart and recently signed a two-year extension with the Patriots. When Edelman and Amendola were sidelined late in the year Martin had 24 catches for 269 yards on 37 targets.

Fantasy Downside
The competition around him makes it tough for him to be a huge fantasy contributor when everyone is healthy. He could return kicks and help out if there is injury trouble as Belichick seems to trust him.

2016 Bottom Line
Though his roster spot is likely safe, his ceiling is likely the WR3 in this offense unless injuries force more targets his way.
