2016 Fantasy Outlook
Coates didn't do much in the regular season, getting lost in the shuffle as Pittsburgh's No. 5 receiver and catching just two passes for 11 yards in the regular season. But with Antonio Brown out with a concussion in the playoffs at Denver, Coates stepped up with two receptions for 61 yards on three targets. He's big and fast, with many of the same attributes as suspended Martavis Bryant. Many are putting one and one together and getting four and thinking Coates will step in for Bryant. That will happen some, but he's not going to mimic Bryant's numbers. He should have some big games, but will be a hit-and-miss prospect as a home run threat.
