2015 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Dec-12-2015 by Shawn Childs
Week 14 DFS Update (12/12): Coleman may be an interesting play in Week 13 with Cooks listed as questionable with a concussion issue and Snead still not 100 percent. Last week Coleman had his best game in 2015 (4/73/1). He finished with WR3 snaps (45), behind Cooks (56) and Colston (57). In his only other game with solid playing time (58 plays in Week 1), Coleman also had a TD while catching four of his seven targets for 41 yards. The Bucs have weakness at CB and he has the clear edge in size (6'6"). Possible flier if he earns starter snaps.
Coleman went undrafted in 2014, which allowed the Saints to sign him. In three seasons at Rutgers, Brandon caught 94 passes for 1808 yards with 20 TDs. His best season came in 2012 when he caught 43 passes for 718 yards with 10 TDs. Coleman has elite size (6'6" and 225 lbs.). He ran a 4.56 forty yard dash in the 2014 NFL Combine while leading all WRs in the bench press (21 reps.). His route running ability is limited with questions about his ability to separate from top CBs plus Brandon needs to prove he can win a high percentage of 50/50 passes. With New Orleans lacking talent at the WR position, Coleman may have an opportunity to fill some the lost value created when Jimmy Graham headed out West. His game may mirror the path of Chargers WR Malcom Floyd with more upside in TDs. All signs point to him starting the year for the Saints as the WR3.
