The 2016 fantasy football season was a disappointment for any Martavis Bryant fans looking for a breakout year from the massive wide receiver with blazing 4.4 speed. It wasn’t the first year fans and fantasy footballers have been let down by Bryant though as he was also suspended for part of the 2015 season for failing drug tests. If Bryant can stay clean and remain on the field, this could be the year he launches up the fantasy football rankings and pushes your fantasy team into a deep playoff run. Martavis Bryant should be in line for a big year opposite Antonio Brown. While some disagree on how effective Bryant will be, his natural ability and solid, yet limited, career numbers point to a high ceiling unlike many other receivers in the league.

If you see any of this article’s aforementioned players sliding down in your draft you may want to scoop them up before someone else gets a steal at your dispense.
