With a lot of veteran wide receiver changing teams this offseason, let's look at the 2021 fantasy expectations for Julio Jones, Kenny Golladay, Will Fuller and more in their new landing spots.

Using player traits, offensive scheme fit and key numbers, along with Mike Clay's 2021 projections, here's how I see the fantasy value of 10 wide receivers who switched teams this year.

Julio Jones, Tennessee Titans
Clay's projections: 78 receptions (117 targets), 1,094 yards receiving, 7 TDs
Current ADP: WR14

At 32 years old, Jones has enough vertical juice to stretch defenses, and we know the Titans will scheme him up off play-action to throw crossers and in-breakers (see video above). Plus, there could be more red zone scoring upside for Jones this season with quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Since joining the Titans, a league-best 38.1% of Tannehill's red zone throws have resulted in touchdowns, via ESPN researcher Kyle Soppe. While we know he will work as the No.2 in Tennessee opposite of AJ Brown, in an offense that leans on the run game, Jones is still a solid target as a mid-tier WR2.
