Quintez Cephus
23-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Detroit snagged Cephus in the fifth round of the draft, but the Wisconsin product may have been drafted significantly higher if not for off-the-field concerns from his college days. With that said, Cephus could still be in for a long season of learning as Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola gobble up the vast majority of snaps at receiver on his new team. The Lions also have Marvin Hall around, so Cephus might not even be the next man up. Cephus certainly could work his way there, but he probably won't see consistent playing time until 2021, at the earliest, when he'll be the only Lions receiver under contract. In fact, how he develops in 2020 might play a significant role in the decision to re-sign Amendola at year's end. Read Past Outlooks

Gets competition for snaps
WRDetroit Lions
March 31, 2021
Cephus has new competition at wide receiver after Detroit signed Breshad Perriman and Tyrell Williams to replace Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Despite the overhaul at the position, Cephus still seems like the future of the Lions wideout corps, considering both Williams and Perriman are only signed to one-year deals. Meanwhile, no other notable Lions wideout is under contract beyond 2021 besides Cephus. However, given this "band-aid" approach Detroit appears to be taking to wide receiver this offseason, the team may be planning on using the draft to add pass catchers, perhaps as early as the No. 7 overall pick. Should Detroit ultimately choose not to invest significant draft capital into a difference-making receiver or receivers, Cephus could be an under-the-radar PPR asset, given how his short-area game complements the deep-threat abilities of Williams and Perriman.
