Coleman, the 15th overall pick of the 2016 draft, is entering his age-24 season and still has tremendous speed and explosive leaping ability. He’s shown tantalizing flashes of potential in each of his first two seasons, and it seems like only a matter of time before he eventually breaks out.
The breakout may well be coming, but it’s starting to look less and less likely that it will happen in Cleveland. Coleman is now behind Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry in the WR pecking order, and with the Browns’ QB position in a state of flux, there’s little chance that Cleveland will have three fantasy-relevant wideouts. Coleman has broken his hand in each of the past two seasons.
It’s tempting to take a late-round gamble on Coleman based purely on talent, but it just doesn’t seem likely that he’ll be able to overcome both a target logjam and a problematic QB situation to have a breakthrough campaign in Cleveland.
