Fastest NFL Players

Having speed in the NFL is one of the best physical tools. It is especially important for wide receivers to have speed to get separation from the defense. A lot of different players claim to be the fastest in the league right now, and it is not an exact science when it comes to determining who holds that title. Here is the best guess when it comes to the very fastest in the league.

Mike Wallace

The production has been a little lackluster in the last few years, but no one is going to deny the fact Mike Wallace has plenty of speed. The wide receiver is now on the Vikings, and back in May he was not shy in stating that he’s the fastest in the NFL. With a proclaimed 40-yard dash time of 4.21 seconds, that would certainly put him in elite company.

DeSean Jackson

Like Wallace, Jackson is getting a bit on the older side at age 28 in the NFL. That is old to be considered one of the fastest in the NFL, but plenty point to him as the current title holder. He was solid in his first season with Washington, but he will need to do more to become elite in fantasy football money leagues again.

Sammy Watkins

Watkins went into the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine trying to break Chris Johnson’s 40-yard dash time of 4.24. He came up short, but one race before entering the NFL is not going to stop people from claiming him to be the fastest receiver in the game. He is looking for a big year with Buffalo in 2015, and those in fantasy football money leagues feel like he is just scratching the surface of his potential.

Want To Win Your Fantasy League: Pick These 3 Players!

According to fantasy.usatoday.com:

1. RB David Johnson, Arizona Cardinals
ADP: 110.8 (RB 44)

Do you trust Andre Ellington to stay healthy or handle carries between-the-tackles on a regular basis? Me neither. Especially not at his 40.9 overall ADP (RB 18).

Johnson (6-1, 224 pounds) possesses the better profile for full-time work and inside-the-20 chances. This should be close to an even split in touches, and in this case, it’s best to favor the one who’d pull into the lead for touchdown potential.

He could do all the things blind believers thought Ellington could last year — and he’ll offer that upside at a fraction of the price.

2. WR Pierre Garcon, Washington Redskins
ADP: 98.4 (WR 41)

He led the NFL with 113 catches and 182 targets in 2013 but snared just 68 in 2014 with an inconsistent role.

Heading into 2015, Garcon (pictured) is being moved to the “Z” receiver spot, which would put him in motion more often to take more advantage of his possession abilities.

Even with the risk presented by Robert Griffin III under center, Garcon remains a threat to climb back toward 90 catches, which would provide excellent value for looks as a WR3. Listening, PPR gamers?

3. WR Marvin Jones, Cincinnati Bengals
ADP: 144.3 (WR 58)

Jones missed all of 2014 with foot and ankle problems. But in the previous season, he celebrated a six-pointer 10 times while averaging 14.0 yards per catch.

He’s on average being selected behind names such as Brian Quick, DeVante Parker and Dorial Green-Beckham — who have smaller resumes in less desirable environs. Jones could once again corral double-digit scores from quarterback Andy Dalton.

We will keep it brief and to the point:

1.   Play a top fantasy defense when it is at home.

2.   Play a quarterback when he has high QB Rating and is against a defense that allows high completion percentage.  Make sure his team is the favorite to win the game.

3.   Play wide receivers that are heavy and tall.

4.   Play other wide receivers who have a top ten quarterback throwing to them,  and are targeted often in and out of the red zone.
