Suspensions and the Ultimate Effects on Fantasy Football Rankings

There are no hard or fast rules to drafting, especially in fantasy football. What matters most in drafting is strategy and identifying possibilities of potential WR1 candidates for draft day. Basically finding diamonds in the rough.

Martavis Bryant was poised to make an outstanding leap into WR 1 territory. He started out well by scoring a 35-yard TD on his first reception and has been a major contributor in 13 games having accumulated 67 receptions on 113 targets but disappointed many fantasy footballers with his suspension due to failed drug tests.

With a WR1 possibility of 55%, consensus shows that Marvis is a WR 21 in standard. His career stats have seen his fantasy football rankings take a nose dive and his improvements have been minimal at best over his rookie as well as sophomore season. Not very good for fantasy football rankings.

He can still make a strong comeback as a WR1 by improving his share and catch rate, gain stature in fantasy football rankings and be a great value in 2017 drafts.
