Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, Detroit Lions
Amon-Ra St. Brown is obviously now one of the most well-known fantasy assets out there, but it might be possible that he reaches an even higher level of celebrity among fantasy managers in 2023.
The Detroit Lions were one of the better offenses in the entire NFL last season, and the retention of Ben Johnson as the offensive coordinator signals that this unit shouldn’t skip a beat going into this season.
With a lack of depth at WR now with Jameson Williams being suspended for the first six weeks of the season, St. Brown should get off to a fast start and be a target machine over the middle of the field for Jared Goff.
The talented WR had an impressive 146 targets in 2022, but there’s a world in which he eclipses even that high mark this year for the Lions.
D’Andre Swift, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
Fantasy managers have been holding out hope for D’Andre Swift for years now, but injuries have prevented the dynamic RB from reaching those lofty expectations.
Swift now finds himself a member of the Philadelphia Eagles’ RB room, which gives him an opportunity to be the RB1 right out of the gate. While he may not see a ridiculous workload on the ground, there’s plenty of buzz that Swift should be heavily utilized as a receiver in this scheme.
If that’s the case, Swift should not only dramatically outperform his ADP as it currently stands, but he should be a consistent option for full-PPR lineups week after week.
Elijah Moore, WR, Cleveland Browns
Elijah Moore fell out of favor with fantasy managers in 2022, but there were plenty of external factors that contributed to the dynamic playmaker experiencing a dip in production.
He now finds himself a member of the Browns and will be catching passes from Deshaun Watson in 2023. If Watson can get back to playing at an elite level, Moore is in line for a massive season.
All news coming out of Cleveland right now centers around Moore’s involvement in the offense and how he’s showcasing his talent on a daily basis. While Amari Cooper should still retain the WR1 role for the Browns, Moore has an easy path to the WR2 role in an offense that could explode this season.
