Quintez Cephus
22-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

Sees 10 targets in debut
WRDetroit Lions
September 14, 2020
Cephus caught three of 10 targets for 43 yards during Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Bears.
ANALYSIS
Without Kenny Golladay (hamstring), Cephus stepped into a huge role and finished second among all rookie receivers in Week 1 by logging 79 percent of his team's offensive snaps (62 of 78). Meanwhile, Marvin Hall and Jamal Agnew saw 16 or less snaps apiece. While Cephus wasn't the most efficient with his opportunities, a couple of them came in the end zone, and it's important to know the rookie can command this kind of workload when given the opportunity. If Golladay remains sidelined Week 2, Cephus could be a sneaky play against Green Bay.
