Dynasty & Redraft: WR Braxton Berrios, Jets

Could Berrios be the next Humphries?: 

The Patriots lost out on their pursuit of free-agent slot receiver Adam Humphries (Titans) despite a contract offer in the $9 million to $10 million per-year range, which has opened the door for 2018 sixth-round pick Braxton Berrios to possibly fill that role. Berrios, a shifty slot receiver at Miami who spent his rookie NFL season on injured reserve, caught my eye in four spring practices as one of the most improved players -- reliable catching the ball in tight windows, more decisive, and quicker and more fluid in his movements than he was last year, when he was fighting a muscle-related injury. Humphries likely would have been great for the Patriots, but with Berrios scheduled to earn a base salary of $495,000 in 2019, the club has a situation where a developing player at a fraction of the cost could ultimately fill part of the role they had targeted for Humphries. There is a long way to go, and Berrios has to prove he can stay on the field, but his development is a positive one for the club this spring. Berrios relayed to me that he's taking a "rookie mentality" to the year.

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss expects Braxton Berrios to make the team out of training camp.

Berrios was stashed on injured reserve as a rookie, but now that he's been given a clean bill of health, the sophomore pass-catcher is hoping to land a spot in a wide-open Patriots receiving corps. Training camp doesn't open for another nine days, but Berrios has already been at the New England's facility for some time now. Reiss envisions Berrios filling a Danny Amendola-type role as a slot receiver while also working as a return specialist. The Patriots have plenty of questions to answer at receiver behind locked-in starters Julian Edelman and N'Keal Harry.

@Faust rename the thread!

Braxton Berrios caught 6-of-8 targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the 49ers.

Berrios scored the Jets' lone touchdown of the day but the toucomes of the game had been decided for over a quarter. He got behind the defense on a Sam Darnold scramble and Darnold hit him in stride for a score. That play may have been the single bright spot in an otherwise ugly showing from the Jets offense. Berrios could have some PPR value going forward as long as Jamison Crowder remains sidelined.

Are... are we going to start chasing Braxton Berrios? I ask because every year, it seems like there a point we have to start taking about Braxton Berrios.

It's not really a matter of "Do I want Jets?" It seems every year Berrios comes into a potentially high volume role; it's an issue of "Is this the time?"

Jets WR Braxton Berrios (hamstring) is questionable for Week 3 against the Colts. 

Someone get Laverneus Coles on the phone. The Jets' receiver injury bug has infected Berrios, who caught a touchdown on eight targets last week against the Niners. If Berrios is inactive this week, Chris Hogan could stumble into considerable volume. We're not sure if that matters or not. Jets wideouts should be avoided outside of 20-team fantasy leagues.

Braxton Berrios caught all four of his targets for 64 yards and a touchdown in New York's Week 3 loss to the Colts.

Berrios was the lone bright spot for the Jets in an otherwise horrific performance, scoring the team's only touchdown after Sam Darnold bought time in the flats and found Berrios open in the right corner of the end zone. He also beat Xavier Rhodes for a 28-yard gain in the first quarter when the contest was still competitive. Berrios only received the opportunity because both Jamison Crowder (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (ankle) were scratched, making the former a longshot for a full-time role unless those two aren't able to heal in time for Thursday's tilt against Denver.

Kid has looked great the last couple weeks. The coach will turn back into a pumpkin once Crowder and Breshad return, but I think he makes a great dynasty stash if you got the roster space. I can see him surfacing as a starting slot receiver a year or two down the line. I recall that when he was drafted in NE the feeling was that he would be the eventual successor to Edelman (whose continued longevity may have made "Honey Nut" Berrios expendable).

Jets WR Braxton Berrios led the team with 33 pass routes in Week 3 against the Colts. 

Berrios caught all four of his targets for 64 yards and a score in Week 3. He totaled four more routes than Chris Hogan, who resumed his targetless wind sprint duties for New York. If you lose a bet and have to start a Jets wideout in Week 4 against the Broncos, make sure it's Berrios.
