Fantasy football lovers who are already preparing their draft boards for the upcoming season may want to take a hard look at former Ohio State receiver Parris Campbell. According to CBS Sports, he’s the guy most poised to be a breakout player this season.
SportsLine recently updated its fantasy football rankings and cheat sheets for the 2019 season, and Campbell has received some pretty high marks. Campbell is about to enter his rookie season in the NFL after being selected in the second round of the NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts.
Campbell’s final year in Columbus, along with his NFL Combine numbers, have prompted such high reviews of the receiver. From SportsLine:
We can tell you SportsLine’s Fantasy football rankings 2019 and cheat sheets are all over Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell. The rookie out of Ohio State had a career-defining senior season with the Buckeyes, catching 90 passes for 1,063 yards and 12 touchdowns to lead the Big Ten. That included a dominant performance against arch-rival Michigan where he showed NFL scouts his enormous playmaking ability with six catches for 192 yards and two scores.
During his career in Columbus, Campbell earned a reputation as one of the speediest receivers and best playmakers in the B1G. SportsLine appears pretty confident the former Buckeye will have a similar impact in the NFL.
Indianapolis will begin the 2019 NFL preseason on Thursday, Aug. 8 with a trip to Buffalo. The Colts begin the regular season a month later on Sunday, Sept. 8 visiting the Los Angeles Chargers.
