2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs


Over his first six years in the NFL, Barnidge caught 44 passes for 603 yards and three TDs on 79 targets. Somehow Gary turned into a Fantasy stud at age 30 with the Browns. He caught 79 of his 125 targets for 1043 yards and nine TDs. He had ten games with five catches or more five games with double-digit targets. His rise is intriguing, but he has to have some failure risk. The Browns have a new QB and coaching staff possibly leading to fewer chances. The lack of talent at WR should help Barnidge in 2016 as long as Griffin is willing to throw the ball to the TE position. In 2012 at Washington, RGIII completed 58 passes to the TE position for 793 yards and two TDs. Based on what I saw on the field in 2015, I think Gary has talent, so I'll set the bar at 70 catches for 850 yards and mid-level TDs.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
8.08 Adam Ronis - Barnidge was excellent last season as a Top 5 tight end. There are some questions at QB, but he thrived last season in a similar situation.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
11.04 Two QBs - Salvatore Stefanile - Barnidge came out of nowhere last season to post a top-four TE PPR season. Was the second-highest targeted (125) TE in the league last year and could become a security blanket for RG3.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
10.07 Scout Fantasy - Mark Morales-Smith - Barnidge was the best player available if I wanted a flex option, even if he is a TE. Plus this move sticks it to people punting on TE and waiting for someone to fall to them.
