Dynasty & Redraft: Derrick Willies, WR CLE (1 Viewer)

Derrick Willies was a deep sleeper in the offseason for me during the draft. I always kept him on my watchlist as he got invited to camp and made the roster. He came from Texas Tech and sort of matched that super slot physical attribute you look for. Great agility, great burst, great catch radius. Not great production in college but now he sits as potential 2 or 3 WR for the Browns with Higgins out and Callaway struggling. 5 games ago with this scenario I would have said nothing but now with Baker there I think any WR stands a chance to be a fantasy asset. He had some nice YAC last week and we’ll see how good his opportunity is moving forward.

thanks for the info, would you mind doing a direct comparison of his skills to Callaway's for those of us not familiar with him?

There isn’t a lot of film on Willies. I’m not sure if he played slot or on the outside in college. Callaway has been more of a deep threat and lining up on the outside. I actually see Willies more along the lines of filling what should have been Higgins opportunity.

 
It’s not necessarily sexy but he had 5 targets on  26 snaps. Now Landry was also dealing with a knee tweak so there may not be much there for him Sunday but Higgins is out the next two weeks and Rishard Matthews, who worked out Monday, apparently isn’t signing there for right now.

 
Didn't realize he came into the league after being suspended and had so little collegiate production so he 'could' have unrealized upside.  

Good catch on having him on your radar so early but he got dinged today in practice so if anyone was considering taking a flyer they should keep an eye out for updates on his status.

#Browns HC Hue Jackson said WR Derrick Willies injured shoulder during today's practice and did not finish practice. Hue said "we'll see" when asked if he's optimistic about Willies' chances to play Sunday. Hue pointed out Damion Ratley and Duke Johnson are candidates to fill in.

Ya, I saw.  :(  If he’s out, it sucks because it would have been a nice little tryout of sorts.

 
Browns WR Derrick Willies (shoulder) is out for Week 6 against the Chargers.

Willies fractured his collarbone in Friday's practice. He's likely headed to injured reserve. The Browns are also down Rashard Higgins this week, locking Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway into a heavy target share.
