RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Kevin Curtis.
Curtis is a solid veteran receiver that will provide steady back up play if any injuries occur during the 2011 season.
After missing the first six games of the season with a hernia, Curtis returned to action but never seemed to get up to full speed, in part due to a concussion and also a calf injury. Curtis did catch four balls for 122 yards in the Eaglesí playoff loss to the Cardinals, but that was the only game in which he broke 100 yards and only one of two in which he broke 65. Meanwhile, DeSean Jackson emerged as the teamís top target. To complicate matters, the Eagles traded up to draft Jeremy Maclin in the first round, and Maclin should push Curtis for targets right out of the gate. The two will likely carve out their respective roles in camp. All that said, thereís still reason to expect Curtis to be heavily in the mix. The Eagles are an extremely pass heavy team, Maclinís a rookie and Jacksonís a second-year player who lacks maturity. The 5-11, 186-pound Curtis isnít going to set the league on fire, but heís a steady possession threat with good quickness and burst whoís earned the trust of his quarterback.
After years of being the third fiddle behind Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce, Curtis signed with the Eagles last year and became their top receiver, averaging 14.4 yards per catch and 8.2 yards per target. At 5-11, 186, Curtis is a small target, but he's tough enough to go over the middle, and he can occasionally beat defenders deep with his excellent quickness and acceleration. Curtis isn't a true burner, but he's able to change directions quickly and shake defenders in the open field. Despite his lack of size, Curtis saw 22 redzone targets (tied for 9th) but brought in just two for scores. Fellow wideout Reggie Brown also struggled in the red zone, so itís unclear how the Eagles will apportion the in-close targets in 2008. Curtis caught four passes of 40 yards or more and 14 of 20-plus, which is about average for a wideout with 135 targets. Playing in Andy Reid's pass-friendly system gives Curtis a decent floor, but lacking red-zone skills and blazing speed, he's unlikely to improve on last year's numbers.
After being blocked for years by Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce, Curtis arrives in Philadelphia as the teamís No. 2 wideout. At 5-11, 186, Curtis is a small receiver, and heíll sometimes have trouble against press coverage, but heís not afraid to mix it up in the middle of the field. Curtis isnít a burner, but he can get behind defensives with his excellent quickness and acceleration. Heís dangerous and elusive in the open field, able to make defenders miss or blow by them with his ability to accelerate quickly. Given his stature, Curtis isnít much of a red-zone target, but he did haul in three of four looks from inside the five last season. Chalk that up to playing for Scott Linehan who loves to throw to his wideouts from in close. Reggie Brown and L.J. Smith will likely get most of the work near pay dirt for Philadelphia. Although the Eagles are one of the most pass-happy teams in the league, they tend to spread the ball around, so temper your expectations for Curtisí target numbers.
With Isaac Bruce having won the No. 2 wideout spot during preseason Curtisí fantasy value now depends in large part on whether Bruce gets hurt. With Bruce out in Weeks 4-8 during the 2005 season, Curtis had 21 catches for 409 yards and three scores. As a third wideout, Curtis will still have his moments, but a couple of catches a week with a touchdown every fourth or fifth game isn't going to help win any fantasy titles. At 5-11, 186, Curtis isnít going to overpower anyone and can struggle against press coverage on the line. However, heís got excellent speed and is a dangerous threat down the field, as evidenced by his four catches of 40-plus yards in just 97 targets.
The Rams' fastest player, Curtis would become an instant fantasy factor if anything should happen to starters Holt and Bruce in 2005.
Curtis is coming off a bad break of his leg that ultimately required two procedures. He faces an uphill battle to make it onto the Rams four-wideout sets this season as he's sixth on the depth chart heading into camp.
The Rams have been raving about Curtis most of the summer, and with good reason. He might start the year as the No. 3 receiver on the depth chart.
