James Washington and Donte Moncrief are the favorites to start on the outside for Ben Roethlisberger with Juju remaining in the slot, while rookie WR Diontae Johnson fights for time on the field. All three guys outside of Juju will likely be in a competition to create that pecking order going into 2019.

The targets vacated by Antonio Brown will likely be spread out more, but a second WR can definitely be very fantasy relevant on an offense that passed more than any other team last year. Determining who that second WR is will require paying attention to camp battles and preseason to see where Ben is going with the ball.

Vance McDonald has playmaking ability, and even if he absorbs only 25% of AB’s share from last year, he would be at 112 targets for the year. His rising ADP is in the 7th round now, so he’s not as much of a value anymore compared to his 9th/10th round ADP about a month ago. Are you still willing to take McDonald at that spot?

Whichever WR the hype train falls upon will likely see a big bump in ADP, but for now, Washington is being taken in the 10th with Moncrief being taken in the 13th in PPR mock drafts.

Who do you think will be the biggest beneficiary of AB’s departure? Which WR outside of Juju are you betting is the most fantasy relevant in 2019?
