Ben Roethlisberger will spread things around more and he won’t force passes into double coverage as often. JuJu Smith-Schuster will be the prime target, but then he was last season as well. Tight end Vance McDonald may very well be the second-most productive receiver.
With Antonio Brown in Oakland, Ben Roethlisberger's field opens up a bit more, making way for new playmakers. Vance McDonald was already third in targets among Pittsburgh pass catchers last season with 72 and could see more volume in Brown's absence. His 4for4 ranking is currently as TE8 with a projected PPR point total of 151 on the season.
But the way it looks right now, Drake will be the main back in a multi-back offense (expect Kalen Ballage to be the No. 2 back) as opposed to a singular workhorse back.
Despite the surprising longevity of Frank Gore, and ending the 2018 season as RB29 in total touches and RB105 in touch rate (TCH/Snap), Kenyan Drake still managed to produce in the meager Dolphin offense. Thanks in part to his pass catching - 53 receptions on the year, Drake’s final numbers as RB14 in PPR points was four spots higher than his RB18 ADP. This year he should see an uptick in usage even with Ballage as the No. 2 back and is currently being undervalued in both best-ball and redraft formats. John Paulson has Drake ranked as RB13 in PPR leagues, and his ADP sits as RB24. Ballage's ADP is currently RB58.
Gerald Everett "looked fabulous during the offseason and in fantastic physical shape." may benefit from the Rams wanting "to diversify their offense a bit"
There has been plenty of hype around Gerald Everett's performance this offseason at OTAs and minicamp. He's shown a heightened physical prowess and heading into his third year, could see an uptick in work with the Rams in 2019. If he can continue to separate himself from Tyler Higbee, Everett could be a steal at his current 19th-round ADP.
