Scouting report

CLE WR Corey Coleman - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Baltimore Ravens

Corey Coleman had a productive first week, finishing with five receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown on 6 targets. According to Pro Football Focus, DeShone Kizer had a 150.4 passer rating when targeting Coleman, which was the second-highest of any QB-to-WR combo last week.

Coleman could have a hard time reproducing those stats in Week 2, though, as he has a difficult matchup against the Ravens. The Ravens held Bengals receivers in check last week, and it wouldn't be a shock to see it happen again. If you have Coleman, you should view him as a WR4 at best this week.

CLE WR Corey Coleman - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Corey Coleman got off to a strong start last season before an injury forced him to miss six games. Once he returned, he was unable to get going again, as he had fewer than 45 yards in all of his eight games back.

To start 2017, Coleman gets a difficult matchup against the Steelers. We expect the Browns to want to run the ball rather than pass it, which will leave only a few opportunities for Coleman. He's already a shaky prospect in fantasy, and given the matchup, he's not a great play.

Coleman should be viewed as a WR4 in both standard and PPR formats.

CLE WR Corey Coleman - 2017 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Corey Coleman has a lot of talent, which is why the Browns spent a first-round pick on him a year ago. He’s a quick receiver, who made a lot of big plays at Baylor, en route to 20 touchdowns in his final collegiate year. He displayed some of that athleticism his rookie season, especially early, with a 100-yard, 2-touchdown game in Week 2. He’ll contend with Kenny Britt this season to be one of the top two options in the Browns offense.

Fantasy Downside

Coleman didn’t show a lot in his rookie season, but that was mostly due to the fact he missed several games with an injury. Although he came back, he clearly wasn’t right as he didn’t play well in his final eight games. Coleman went past 40 yards just once in the last eight games and scored only one time. His big plays were mostly eliminated as he averaged under 10 yards a catch (8.8) during those final eight games.

2017 Bottom Line

Coleman struggled in 2016, but that could be due to a lot of factors. It was his first year, he played with a revolving door of quarterbacks, he dealt with a broken hand, and the list goes on. The quarterback situation still isn’t great, but Coleman should be more productive in his second season. We have to wait to find out just how much he’ll improve, but he’s not a bad late-round selection in deeper leagues.

CLE WR Corey Coleman - Week 17, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Pittsburgh
Corey Coleman hasn’t done anything of value since returning from an injury that kept him out the majority of the season. Part of his struggles may be hitting a rookie wall, but the majority is likely from the fact Robert Griffin III has been awful at quarterback.

There’s really no reason to start Coleman in fantasy, or even roster him. He’s been held under 30 yards in three straight games, and has a bad matchup this week.

CLE WR Corey Coleman - Week 16, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Corey Coleman - Week 16 vs. San Diego
Since returning from injury, Corey Coleman has averaged 30 yards per game, and has only gone over 40 yards once. He's also found the endzone just one time in that span, and has struggled to find production with Robert Griffin III at quarterback.

It's unlikely he finds his rhythm this week in a tough matchup against the Chargers. He might get more looks with Terrelle Pryor battling a serious finger injury, but Coleman is nothing more than a WR5, which places him off the fantasy radar in most leagues.

CLE WR Corey Coleman - Week 15, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Buffalo
Since returning from injury, Corey Coleman has averaged 32 yards in five games and has had three receptions in all but one (where he had four). In short, he hasn't been very good and he'll only be relevant when he scores a touchdown, which will be impossible to predict.

Coleman gets a decent matchup against Buffalo this week, but there's no way to trust him considering his lack of production. He's not worth starting in Week 15.

CLE WR Corey Coleman - Week 14, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Cincinnati
Corey Coleman continues to not produce many yards. Since his return from injury he's averaged 33 yards per game and has caught just one touchdown in that span. Making matters worse for him this week is the fact he'll go up against a tough Bengals pass defense.

Coleman is an explosive receiver, and could benefit from Robert Griffin's deep pass, but it's hard to trust him entirely this week. He should be viewed as a WR4 play.
