Quarterbacks

PlayerComp.Att.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Jared Goff222365244614.612.429390.3149.54
Goff entered training camp second on the depth chart behind Case Keenum and isn't expected to start in Week 1, but there is little doubt that he eventually assumes the starting role sooner rather than later this season. From a fantasy perspective, however, there is little upside for this year's No. 1 overall draft pick given the team's run-heavy offensive scheme and lack of playmakers in the passing game.

Running Backs

Todd Gurley29813359.8342921227.5
Should you draft Gurley first overall? Well, if you ask Gurley, you should. Although Gurley shouldn't be the first player off the board in fantasy drafts (Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown should), you could argue that he should be the first running back off the board. Despite missing the first three games of last season, Gurley finished third in the NFL with 1,106 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns. Despite running behind a poor offensive line with a rookie quarterback (at some point) under center, Gurley will be one more year removed from his torn ACL and could lead the league in rush attempts in 2016.

Wide Receivers

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Tavon Austin635613.2483262.5122.9
Even though Austin had just 473 receiving yards, the versatile receiver had a total of 907 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns including a punt return touchdown. Finishing as a top-20 fantasy wide receiver (WR27 in PPR) in 2015, Austin should lead the team's weak receiving corps in fantasy production once again even if he doesn't double his receptions total as Fisher has suggested.
