Quarterbacks

PlayerComp.Att.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Carson Palmer400.1636.9471230.215.614.8320281.28
One year after finishing as fantasy's QB5, Palmer had a disappointing season (QB19) although he played better in the second half. Averaging 17.57 fantasy points per game after Week 7 (compared to 14.19/G before that), Palmer is a bounce-back candidate in 2017. And only the Ravens and Saints threw the ball more often in 2016.

Running Backs

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
David Johnson315.51367.313.174.5765.94.4318.32
In his breakout sophomore campaign, Johnson led the NFL in yards from scrimmage (2,118) and total touchdowns (20) and led running backs in receptions (80) and fantasy points scored (in both standard and PPR-scoring formats). DJ's 2017 goal is to become the third player to record a 1,000-1,000 season. Listed 1-2 in my rankings, Le'Veon Bell and Johnson are more like 1(a) and 1(b) or even both T-1st.

Wide Receivers

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Larry Fitzgerald96.71069.57.4000151.35
Back for (at least) one more season, Fitzgerald has finished as a top-20 fantasy wide receiver with 100-plus catches and 1,000-plus yards in back-to-back seasons. Going into his age-34 season, Fitzgerald is a safe WR2 for fantasy owners.
John Brown70.6992.66.4000137.66
Brown's production was nearly cut in half (39/517/2 in 2016 vs. 65/1,003/7 in 2015) in large part due to medical issues. Per Carson Palmer, Brown is "heavier, hes stronger. He looks more explosive than he did last year." If he can stay healthy, Brown is poised for a bounce-back year.
