Scouting report

ARI WR Damiere Byrd - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Carolina Panthers

Damiere Byrd caught six passes last week for 45 yards on seven targets. Byrd was not only third on the team in targets, but was on the field for 93% of the offensive snaps compared to just 32% for rookie KeeSean Johnson. Byrd is hard to trust as the third receiver, but it’s a good sign to see him beating out Johnson, a preseason darling. Byrd has never lacked for the talent of big-play ability, but has struggled with injuries in the past. He’s worth considering on deep rosters as a long-term stash, but is probably best left on waivers in most leagues against the Panthers this week.

ARI WR Damiere Byrd - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Baltimore Ravens

Damiere Byrd caught four passes for 42 yards last week against the Lions, but he was targeted seven times as the Cardinals played from behind all game and wound up 54 pass attempts. That kind of volume gives Byrd upside, but it’s hard to bank on week-to-week, even for a team that looks as bad as the Cardinals do. The Ravens crushed the Dolphins last week and were one of the best defenses in football a year ago, making it hard to trust Byrd. While he has potential, he’s still fourth on the depth chart, and he should stay on waivers unless that changes.

CAR WR Damiere Byrd - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Damiere Byrd caught 2 touchdowns last week against the Packers. With Devin Funchess and Russell Shepard both dealing with some nagging injuries, Byrd may get some added playing time. He also provides more speed than the other options in the Carolina passing game. However, with other players in front of him on the depth chart, he should be viewed as a boom/bust option. He’s just as likely to wind up with a goose egg as he is to put up legitimate fantasy numbers.
