RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Avant's 2013 season was strangely quiet despite the prodigious output of the Eagles' offense in Chip Kelly's first season at the helm, and he headed to Carolina in the offseason looking for a chance at a starting gig. The Panthers' depth chart at WR is unsettled, but Avant's lack of top-shelf size or speed could limit him to a no. 3 role even against lackluster competition like Jerricho Cotchery and Tiquan Underwood.

2013

What's been the case with Avant his whole career remained the same in 2012: He can serve as an effective short-route option, but he has very little big-play ability. He remarkably has just 10 touchdowns on 259 career receptions and as Philadelphia's third receiver at best in 2013, he's unlikely to make a fantasy impact in most cases.

2012

Avant was efficient as the teams No. 3 receiver last year, averaging 8.4 YPT and 13.1 YPC in a possession role. At 6-0, 212, hes strong, stoutly built and more able to take a shot over the middle of the field than the faster, more dynamic Jeremy Maclin/DeSean Jackson combo. Hes got good hands, and hes a solid route-runner, but hes not fast and will not provide anything down the field zero catches of 40-yards or more in the last two years. Hes a better option in PPR leagues, and even then it would be nice if the Eagles looked his way more in the red zone (eight targets).

2011

DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin are the team's stars, but Avant emerged as the clear No. 3 last year with 73 targets, 51 catches and 7.7 YPT. At 6-0, 209, Avant has more strength and bulk than his explosive teammates and is able to make tough catches in the middle of the field. Avant has good hands (3 drops) and knows how to find space on shorter routes. In short, he's a reliable chain mover and could be asked to take on a bigger role in the Eagles' pass-happy offense should anything happen to one of the starters.

2010

Avant will be the team's No. 3 wide receiver. He'll be playing in a productive system in a pass-happy scheme, but Avant is no better than the fourth or fifth option in Philadelphia's offense.

2009

Avant will battle to be the team's No. 4 or No. 5 wide receiver, as the team has plenty of depth at the position. He's unlikely to make much of an impact with so few targets.

2008

Will fight for third or fourth receiver role in training camp. Could be cut.

2007

Avant, who was selected in the fourth round of the 2006 draft, was virtually nonexistent during his rookie season - catching just seven balls all season long. He enters 2007 as the fifth wide receiver in Philadelphia.

2006

Rookie receiver who will likely just provide depth to the receiving corps.
